## Format A Cell That Has Numbers And Text?

Oct 2, 2009

I am a biologist that works with transgenic animals and I am using Excel to keep records of my mice. I would like to have a column that includes the age as calculated by the DOB of my animal on any given day.
Furthermore I would like for it to be smart enough to tell me in weeks for younger mice and months for older mice. If i do this, obviously i will need a txt string that says "x mnths" or "Y wks" or whatever.

i have come up with an if/then string that works - but for some reason it will not allow me to format the number of decimal places if i include text. here is the function:

=IF(((TODAY()-B6)/7)>12,((TODAY()-B6)/30.417) &" mnths", ((TODAY()-B6)/7) &" wks")
the B6 cell is the DOB of that particular animal.

so what this SHOULD shoot out is something to the effect of "4 mnths" or "3 wks"
depending on the age of the animal. any animal older than 12 weeks will express in function of months and any younger will be in weeks. however what i end up seeing is something like this: 5.81911431107604 mnths I dont need any where near that many dec places...and obviously this doesn't fit in any reasonably sized cell......

## Cannot Convert Numbers Stored As Text To Number Format

Dec 14, 2009

There is probably a really easy answer to this question but I cannot seem to figure it out. I need to calculate the sum of pages faxed on a fax report at my office on an excel spreadsheet which is downloaded from our server. It appears the file is not meant to be used in excel but it downloads as an "*.xls" file anyway. When I open the file I receive this message:

"The file you are trying to open, 'FaxCetailReport.xls', is in a different format then specified by the file extension. Verify that the file is not corrupted and is from a trusted source before opening the file. Do you want to open the file now?"

The file is comnig from a trusted source so I select "Yes" and it opens just fine. There are just over 50 rows of info, one of them being the number of pages. In a blank cell I enter "=SUM(select rows)" and the result is a "0". I have converted the cells to the "number" format, no change. When I right click on the cells and select format, the protection tab on the right has the check box "Locked" checked and unchecking it does nothing, it is checked as soon as you go back in to the protection tab.

The only way around this is to manually retype the numbers in a cell next to the pages column, which is ok for 50 numbers, but I have some sheets where there is over 1,000 entries.

## Save Number As Text In Txt Format Wo Changing The Format

Mar 1, 2007

In order to export an excel table into another program I first need to save the excel file as .txt. The .txt file can then be imported by the other program.

First I however need to make excel understand that the value should be a text and not a value. I therefore format the number as text (0000150235) by adding "0000150235". After saving the file as .txt the format changes from "0000150235" to """0000150235""". I do however need the format in the .txt file to be "0000150235". Can anyone tell me how I can save "0000150235" as .txt and get the value "0000150235" in the .txt file.

## Format Formulas, Constants, Numbers & Text Cells Differently

May 8, 2008

I am attempting to write a VBA function that will add textual formatting to each cell that has content. I am just learning VBA; so far, as an example I have

Sub NewSub()
i = 1
j = 1
Do
Cells(i, j) = "'" & Range(i.j).Value & "',"
i = i + 1
Loop Until i = 40
End Sub

but, as I'm sure you'll notice, it does not work. In essence I want to wrap quotes and follow with a comma each cell that contains any content. The actual content test I haven't gotten to yet.

## Format All Numbers With The Accounting Format

Jan 10, 2007

When working in Excel I format all numbers with the accounting format. I often use the single and double underlining feature on the Font tab of the Format Cells dialog box. Sometimes when I use the double underline it only puts (and prints) one underline. I've worked with the formatting many times with little success. The only way I can get the double underline to show up in this situation is to change the vertical cell alignment to be centered and then increase the cell height. This causes me other formatting heartaches. It's like the double underline is there it just will not show.

## Convert A Date Format To A Text Format

Oct 6, 2008

Example......

In D2 I have: =B2
In D3 I have manually input: (space)3-08

As you can see the CONCATENATE puts the "39569" date in A2 But the second line puts the text date as I prefer. What I would like to do is put in a formula or macro in D2 and down that will change the "Mar-08" to "3-08" so it CONCATENATEs correctly to column A. Simply: I'm trying to avoid manually inputing the text version "3-08" (or whatever M-Y) into D2 down a hundred or so rows!

## VBA: Format Amts Into Text \$ 9.99 Type Format

Feb 13, 2008

Need to create a set of aligned text amts from various cells...Tried Format but unable to get right combination...I've looked at many threads and most seem related to getting amt from text instead of reverse.

Cell may contain nothing or a monetary amt, negative or positive. Output needs to be in format of "\$9,999.99-" or similar...with leading zeros suppressed but a min of "\$ 0.00" showing, so that above/below amts with be decimal point aligned in a fixed font situation.

I've almost gotten my routine finsihed but this is last remaining obstacle.

## Format Number To Text With Specific Format

Sep 14, 2007

I'll get straight to the point: How can I change this text format from 474556788 to 0-47455678-8 (dash added after 0 and before the last number). I need to apply this to around 5000 rows (can't do that manualy). I want it to be int his format:

474556788 to 047-455678-8

Tks Auto Merged Post;474556788 to 047-455678-8 (This is the wanted format)

## Converting? Format To Text Format

Sep 15, 2009

On the attached example i have a list of fractions (in the format ?/???). However, i have a problem when the fraction is 6/4 or 4/6 as excel rounds the nominator and de-nominator down to the lowest value so these fractions become 3/2 and 2/3. For these two fractions only i don't want this rounding down to happen.

I am open to any suggestions, but i was thinking of some vba where on pressing a button it would run a macro that went through the cells in the column and if the cell value is 1.5 (3/2) then format the cell as text and enter the value"6/4". For the 2/3 fraction, i think you may need to say if the cell is greater than 0.66 and less than 0.67 because this would possibly be harder to exact as the number of decimal places involved.

I have created a userform but I am having extensive problems with the date formats.

My system is set to UK and short date is set to: DD/MM/YYYY

## Convert Cells With Percentage Format To 'same' Decimal In A Column With Mixed Format

Jun 7, 2006

I have a column of cells with values - 0.2%, 0.32%, 0.22, 0.5 etc. The cells with % symbol are in ' Percentage, 2 decimal' format while the plain numbers are in 'General' format i.e. column contains cells in either of these formats. I need a macro where I can specify the column and it will select the cells with the % format, convert it to 'General' and multiply the result by 100 eg. 0.2% converted to 'General' becomes 0.002. When multiplied by 100, result is 0.2 i.e. is displayed without the % symbol.

## Converting Times Stored In Date Format To Number Format?

Mar 31, 2014

One of the reports I run provides me information on lengths of time. Such a field displays as |0:09:16| indicating 9 minutes and 16 seconds. However, when the report generates the excel spreadsheet it saves these cells in date/time format ([h]:mm:ss). If I were to convert this field to the number format (so I can manipulate and graph it) it displays as such |0.00643460648148148| Ideally I would be able to have the data in the field stored as |556| (556 seconds, or 9 minutes 16 seconds). I have thousands of fields that I need to manipulate where the data is stored in this format and I can not figure out how to fix it.

## Format Climatic Data From A Weather Station Into A Desired Format

Feb 11, 2009

I need to format some climatic data from a weather station into a desired format. There are a lot of cut&paste and transposing involved. I think it will be easy but tedious for anyone trained in VB to write a macro but unfortunately I am not. I've tried recording a macro but it turns out that it is not general enough to deal with all the spreadsheets that I've got.

I've attached a spreadsheet which shows the original format (in sheet 1) and the desired format (in sheet 2). To briefly describe, I only need the temperature data for 8am and 2pm, the rest of the information in sheet 1 is useless to me.

What I need is: Search in the A column, if date format leave it , if not change from general to date format.

## Excel 2010 :: Number Format Keeps Switching To Date Format?

Aug 1, 2013

I have an Excel 2010 spreadsheet where the default number format keeps switching to the date format. I keep switching it back and it'll stay as a number format for a time, but then it'll switch back. This is also the case for any new worksheets in that one spreadsheet.

This only happens with this one file - everything else behaves according to my regional settings or to how the file had been previously formatted.

## Save Conditional Format Colour But Delete Condition Format

Dec 19, 2006

I have a Sheet ( Named "Summary" for Example ) of about 4,000 Rows that has a LOT of Conditional Formatting.

## Vlookup Function: Re-format The Information Into A Horizontal Format By Week

Feb 3, 2007

I have a forecast which is sorted by product code by week vertically. I need to create a lookup to re-format this information into a horizontal format by week. I have started this by transposing the information as my attachment shows but I am hoping there is a lookup formula which will be easier and quicker. I have attached the actual document and the data I want to sort is Sheet 2. I have started in Sheet 1. I want to look up the code in column A, then lookup the week number which would be B2 in Sheet 1 and return the value of that Code in that week from Sheet 1.
