Working With Data In Binary Format?

Jun 15, 2009

How well does Excel / VBA deal with data in a binary format? I am working on a Base64 decoder, which in basic terms means I will have 4 numbers, which I need to convert into their binary representations (6 bits each). I then need to combine these binary groups together, and then divide them up differently to give me 3 numbers (made of 8 bits each).I'm just wondering if anyone has any examples on how best to work with binary in Excel? Also if there are an gems of builtin library functions?

Preventing Formula From Working When Specific Text Is In Cells?

Feb 28, 2014

I have a workbook used for scheduling purposes and you can add hours to it by typing in D+1 or D-1, etc. I want to prevent this from working and just ignore the cell if the cell contents say "DC". I've tried to adjust my formula but haven't had any luck. I've attached an example worksheet with the formula for an easier understanding.

Format (Underline) Text With A Formula?

May 19, 2013

I need to underline text which is populated from a formula. How to format numbers, dollars and dates within a formula, but how to underline text.

Desired Result: The employee's who sold more than 100 cars this month are: Alex, Mike and Tim. Please congratulate them on their performance!

Formula being used ="The employee's who sold more than 100 cars this month are: "&cell reference&"Please congratulate them on their performance!"

Current result: The employee's who sold more than 100 cars this month are: Alex Mike Tim Please congratulate them on their performance!

Attempts: I wish underlining text were an option within Format Cells/Custom so I could just use the formula =text(cell reference, "underline"). However, I don't see that as an option in the 2007 or 2010 versions. Is there a way to add "underline text" as my own custom format?

I also tried using "Conditional Formatting" (both "Format cells only that contain" and "Use a formula to determine which cells to format)." I can't quite get it because I don't know how to list names for the former conditional formatting. Vlookup is the only way I know how to refer to a list for the formula based conditional formatting, but this would stop after the first name on the list is found and ignore the rest of them.

Vlookup Formula Not Working With Data On Separate Sheet

children that belong to the first sheet. I want to insert a formula that
will look up the correct spouse (based on a member number) and put in it the

Formula Turns Cell To Text Format

May 7, 2007

I have a workbook with two worksheets. I added a formula to the first worksheet
= COUNTIF(Scorecard!H3,"K"). It works fine when I add another COUNTIF that references another column (baseball fans may realize I'm counting total strikeouts for a batter): =COUNTIF(Scorecard!H3,"K")+COUNTIF(Scorecard!L3,"K") However, when I try to expand this to cover more columns, =COUNTIF(Scorecard!H3,"K")+COUNTIF(Scorecard!L3,"K")+COUNTIF(Scorecard!P3,"K")

Excel automatically changes the format of this cell to "Text" and it shows the formula as text instead of calculating it. What could be wrong here? Excel's documentation is woefully inadequate for cases like this. Is there an undocumented limit on how many times I can add COUNTIFs together?

Data Validate Text Format?

Feb 2, 2012

I need to make sure people enter City State and Zip correctly,

I need somehow to validate: City, NC 21312

Validate City with a comma right next to it with a space and then 2 letters and then space or 2 space and 5 numbers.

Is there any way to do this using Validation.

I guess I could separate the cells, but I would rather not do that. Or I could have a message box pop up and ask individually to enter each one, but I would rather not do that.

Format Painter & Paste Not Working Properly

Jul 13, 2006

I've been working on a particular spreadsheet and I've just noticed that
double clicking the format painter will only format one cell. It won't
retain the format to be put into the next selected cell which it should when
its double clicked. The same goes for copy and paste. Normally once you've
copied something you can paste it into a number of cells individually, one
after the other, but after the first paste selection, the paste option is no
longer available. I can't see any settings under options to fix this. What has happened, and how do I fix it? (I'm using Excel 2003 SP1 - is there a SP2?)

VBA - Distinguishing When Cell Is Edited By Data Validation List Or Free Format Text

Mar 20, 2014

VBA code which can distinguish whether a cell has been edited by:

selecting an option from a data validation list (DVL)
or
manually editing the text in a cell?

The ""Show error alert after invalid data is entered"" option is unticked to allow both selection from the DVL as well as free format text entries.

The problem arises when using the code below which makes an edited cell within a range display the new value as well as the prior value(s). This works well when using the DVL but not when editing the cell.

Is there any code which can distinguish between the 2?

Cut / Copy / Format Painter Stopped Working (Don't Have Skype Click To Call)

Aug 23, 2013

When I copy or cut, I usually get a dashed border around the cells I have copied (or cut), I can then right-click somewhere to paste, but at some point in time recently this functionality has stopped working. The format painter doesn't work either - the paintbrush icon stays pressed for about half a second, then just goes away and I can't paste my formatting.

An operation I often do in excel is to copy a date from one cell, then highlight a few cells elsewhere and press enter to paste the date into them. I also like to right click on a row and Cut, then past it further down my list to re-order things, but this won't work either.

I don't know what I've done to make it go away. If I restart my computer and open a workbook, then I can copy/paste at least once (maybe a few times) then it stops again.

This is caused by a Skype 'click to call' function, but I don't have that installed here. I have actually just tried installing it, so I could run through the uninstall (thinking there might be debris from something previously), but it made no difference.

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.

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!
