Format Date In Cell To Custom Format?

Feb 21, 2014

I have a column in excel which gets populated in the format "2/1/1980" when copied from a different source. I want a macro to run on this column and convert this in the below format. Required format: '02-01-80 (note the ' symbol before 02 which will keep it as text)

Existing ----> Required
2/1/1980 --> '02-01-80
2/1/1970 --> '02-01-70
2/1/1983 --> '02-01-83

I need this macro to run on two columns and replace them with the required format. I can do a find and replace either in the sheet or through hard coding the VBA, but as the date format keeps growing, I would need to do this via code and hence requesting the same.

TN04A8451
GJ04 GA5142

3,4,7 are incomplete nos. while 1,2,5,6 are all complete nos. I want the format of these above nos. to look like this:

2315TN/MH04
9605G/HR38
9605G

Can this be done automatically in a worksheet using the custom cell format function??.... because then it wud get formatted as necessary whenever someone enters a vehicle no. in that particular column.

Find When Using Custom Format

Mar 6, 2014

I have a sheet which uses a 'Custom Format' in column A, '00000' to give each row a unique reference. Is there any way to do a 'Find' using this format, e.g. 00012, rather than just 12. Searching using '00012' doesn't find the appropriate cell, whereas using '12' does?

Date Custom Format

Nov 22, 2006

How do you make custom date format to a cell in such a way that it appears e.g. "Jan-06"?

I tried custom format "Mmm-yy" but it still resulted to "jan-06".

I want the "J" here to be in the upper case.

Leading Zero(s) / Custom Format? ()

Aug 23, 2007

I'm having trouble with the leading zeros of my ISBN#s; excel keeps chopping them off. I found a topic that discussed this issue, but it won't work for me.

http://www.mrexcel.com/board2/viewtopic.php?t=75303

I can't format them as text because I'm getting them as an isbn with dashes (ie:978-05689-256-7) and when I remove the dashes (even if its formatted as text) excel changes the number to 9780568.9E+12 (or something like that)

I think the solution would be to create a custom format (ie. 0000000000) to preserve the zeros, but I'm having 2 problems:

1. Since the ISBN#'s have 2 different formats (ISBN-10 & ISBN-13) I need to somehow check if the first 3 numbers are 978 then based on that it should be formatted either as ISBN-10 (0000000000) or ISBN-13 (0000000000000)

2. In the post that I linked to above it said that I won't be able to do a vlookup if its custom formatted. Is there any way around this?

Custom Format For TEXT

Jan 7, 2009

I have a column in my sheet which I need to be displayed with dashes.

Excample: 123456 -> 12-235-6 (just an example)
But once in a while in the code is a letter like: 123A56 which obviously I need to be displayed like 12-3A5-6

But whatever I do, nothing seems to work.
Another cell with Left()-Mid()-Right() is no option for me....

Custom Format Wildcard

Jun 11, 2009

Anyone know if a wildcard can be used in Custom Formatting using text leading off. Example:

U01234567

I have the above custom formatted as: "U"00-00-0000 which gives me U01-23-4567. This give me the format I need however; the U is not always constant and needs to be changed to different letters as required.

Custom Format Interferes With Itself

Aug 8, 2006

I have a custom format that is applied to column AU. Here is the worksheet code which is placed in the worksheet code area:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
If Target.Column <> 47 Then Exit Sub
If Target.Value = "" Then Exit Sub
On Error Goto Errhndl
Application.EnableEvents = False
Target.Value = "Map " & UCase(Left(Target.Value, 4)) & " <" & UCase(Mid(Target.Value, 5, 2)) & "-" & Right(Target.Value, 2) & ">"
Application.EnableEvents = True
Exit Sub

Errhndl:
Application.EnableEvents = True

End Sub


It works well on the sheet, if I remember to only put three numbers, three letters and then two more numbers (allwithout any spaces. Lowewr case ok). (eg. 122rmm25 is then transformed into Map 122R <MM-25>). On the sheet this works. Coming off of the UserForm, it tries to apply this format to text already formated and messes up royally!!!

Is there any way to either reverse this proccess coming off the UserForm or to stop the worksheet from appling this format to the value of the cell in question if the source is in the wrong format to be changed? How do I detect what format the text is in? (Raw, formatted correctly or over formatted)

Creating Custom Data Bar Format

Feb 11, 2014

I'm looking at what appears to be a custom chart. It is a box divided into 4 equal quadrants. In each quadrant is a percentage with the total equaling 100%. In each of the quadrants there is fill equal to the percent that is numerically written in that quadrant. I'll post a picture with this, but if I was talking cells then....

A1 = 15% B1 = 66%
A2 = 4% B2 = 15%

The backround image behind the number is filled up by volume equal to the percentage indicated. They are also color coded with red representing the highest percentage quadrant filled.

To top that, there are little arrows along the sides of each quadrant indicating an average score.

My first question is WHAT TYPE OF CHART IS THIS THING!, and second can this be done in excel?

Conditional Custom Number Format

Mar 6, 2009

I am trying to create a number format for formatting resistor value in their most commonly displayed form. For example 1,200 ohms would be displayed as 1.2k and 5,000,000 ohms would be displayed as 5M, and finally 5 ohms would be displayed as 5. I have been able to create a format that formats any 2 contiguous formats but not all three.

for example: [>999999]###.0,,;[<1000000]###.0,k;
or: [>999]###.0,k;[<1000]###

both work.(other similar criteria work as well) But if I try to put 3 conditions describing the desired formatting I get and error (containing no useful info) as I try to close the formatting dialog. Is there a limit to the number of conditions that can be used. Or something else I'm overlooking.

Creating A Custom Format For One Cell?

Apr 14, 2013

I want to create a custom format for a cell for entering in "cup measurements". I want to be able to type in 5, 1/4, 1/16, etc. and have the word "cups" appear after the number in that cell. I formatted the cell to say the word cups after typing in the numbers in my cell using the code "cups".

ex: 0 "cups" works fine for whole number

so then if i change it to 0/0 "cups" is works great for only 1/8 but not 1/16 or whole numbers. Then I looked at other custom codes that already existed in my formatts so I attempted to try this code which I just kinda came up with

_(0/00);_(0);_(0/0); "cups"

well it isn't doing what I want and If I use the 0/00 "cups code and I type in 4 cups the cell then says 4/01 cups.

What does my code need to be for me to show whole numbers and and size fraction without having it look weird?

Custom Number Format - Em Dash For Zero

Dec 19, 2011

I know this works because I have seen it in a workbook at a client's office.

I need a custon number format to substiture an "em" dash for zero. An em dash is a hyphen with the width a the letter m. There is also the so called en dash tht is the width the the letter n. A search of the internet shows that to create an em dash in a cell that contains a 0 ("zero"), hold down the alt key and type 0151 on the numeric keypad. Typing 0150 insert a en dash.

I want to be able to set this up as a custom number format in the custom number dialog.

Hide Number One With Custom Format?

Feb 28, 2012

Instead of using conditional format, I would like to use a custom format to hide the number 1. Is this possible?

Basically only three things can be in this cell =IF(D8"",IF(D8="CIV",1.077,1),"")

I need to mask the 1, otherwise show the 1.077. The reason I am not using conditional formatting is because there is a condition on the cell already which applies a pattern style and a font will not match up to the pattern.

Custom Number Format - Percentage

Jul 8, 2014

I am trying to create a custom number format.

Here is what I have come up with: 0.00%;[Red]-0.00%

The problem is, it has no "," it would display as 23555555.6% or -2355555.6%

I need it to display as: 23,555,555.6% or -23,555,555.6%

How would this be written?

Additionally, I have occasion to "abbreviate" in the following format:

23.55MM% or 1.5M% or -23.55MM% or -1.5M%

For currency, I have it written in this manner:

Currency: [>=1000000] $#,##0.0,," MM";[>0] $#,##0.0," M";[Red]($#,###," M")

I just freeze when trying to convert to percentage.

Custom Format (insignificant Values)

Aug 6, 2008

I am currently using this format to display numbers within a pivot table (this put's in a comma and removes any decimal place):

_(* #,##0_);[Red]_(* (#,##0);_(* "-"??_);_(@_)
Scenario1-If the cell evaluated is 0>1 the cell displays: 0 (a black 0)
Scenario2-If the cell evaluated is 01 are insignificant and I would like them to remain as a black - so as not to draw attention to them while evaluating data within the PT.

Does anyone know of a way to display a black - in all three scenarios above short of editing the original data?

I was hoping there was a way to do this via the custom format option or within the pivot table as the data that produces the PT should remain untouched.

Japanese Currency Custom Format

Nov 30, 2009

I would like to set the format of a cell to the Japanese currency format. This means that the comma separator occurs at 4-digit interval instead of 3 (ten-thousand separator instead of thousand separator) like this:

1,000 -> 1000
10,000 -> 1,0000
1,000,000 ->100,0000
1,000,000,000 -> 10,0000,0000

and so on...

There are some rules with the decimals, but I will leave that out for now.

how to achieve this with either custom format or VBA, instead of initiating system changes?
