How To Add Leading Zeros To Sum Up The Total Time Spent On A Project
Mar 7, 2014
I am trying to add a leading zero to sum up the total time spent on a project. the data came back in this format :00:00 which does not allow me to sum up. I changed the format to HH:MM:SS but that did not add the zero.
I need to set up an easy to use spread sheet for my office. It needs to be able to calculate the running total spent of fuel, as well as include any discounts we get and then calculate our total savings.So basically, total spent and total saved.
I have a table of projects with 1) duration in year, 2) time window (number of years of our planning cycle), and 3) start year of the project. I want to generate a list of project parts of all projects where they may take place. This will serve as an input to an optimization program.
So a project of 2-year duration should have 2 parts over any year within the time window. I am including the "impossible" ones for my developer to tag them as "0" when we run it through his code.
I have formatted the cells to be '0000' (showing the leading zero) however when my VBA code runs it copies the cell value into a string but when I stop the code running to check the value the leading zero(s) are gone. I can see they are the same on both worksheets in the correct format. I've tried a few others like integer and long but same same.
I have a CSV file I'm importing into Excell that contains leading zeros in a number field. I cannot get the zeros to display in Excel, but the user of the report needs to see them. Is there a way to dsiplay the leading zeros on a number field?
I have received an attachment of a .csv file from a client and one of the fields is a tenant ID number that sometimes begins with 1 or more zeros. When I open the attachment it is opening in Excel and dropping the zeros. How can I open that up and keep the zeros. I need those leading zeros.
what i want to do is input a range of numbers into a cell "L12" from 1 to 450 though when in excel i have formated the cell to "number" so when i want number 001 it turns to 1
what i what to do in the macro is after
Dim sNum As Integer
sNum = Range("L12").Value
if the number 1 is in the cell "L12" the number 1 will be in the variable sNum, though i want the number to be 001!
would i have to count the number of numbers in the variable and then say for example if there is only "1" number in the box, use an "add 00" function to get the number in the variable to be 001! I have an idea what to do though no idea where to start!
I can't seem to get the Concatenate function to work in my macro when there is a combination of numbers and text. It works fine is there are no alpha characters. I am using this macro to format all of the data in column "A" to have 5 characters and be text. These values will later be used in formulas and Pivot Tables.
Dim sinlen As String Dim sinformat As Variant Dim lastcell As Variant
i have a header row that i want to transfer to a new spreadsheet. here is my exact setup to make it more clear:
Sheet1 - 001 PM Usage$% Sheet2 - 022 PM Usage$%
i have dozens of these rows, and i want to set up a auto rename for the header row on sheet 2 to rename itself like this:
Dim the value from header row on Sheet 1 (001), and rename the header on Sheet 2 (022), keeping the remaining contents intact (this is important because i want to use the same function for other headers which varies).
what i am doing now is dumping the value of the first cell into a variable, but as it stands it doesnt store 001, it stores 1... stripping the zeros, which makes it more complicated.
i thought perhaps i should dim the first 3 characters in the header as a string, and rename the first 3 characters in header 2, which i think would be the most efficient, but i dont even know if that is possible.
I have an excel spreadsheet with numbers and the format has to show zeroes at the beginning (e.g. 0011111) It is always going to be a seven digit number. I can format the cells to show the numbers with the leading zeros, but as soon as I save the file as a csv, the leading zeros are lost.
Does anyone know how to the zeros can be retained when the file is saved in csv format?
I have a whole number in cell C2, but i am formatted it in Cell C3 to always have leading zeros combined with the number in Cell C2, where the result will be 8 digits long. example, my number in cell C2 = 572 but i need it formatted to be 00000572, but if the number was 19 it needs to be formatted to be 00000019 and so on.
I have ID numbers that sometimes starts with one or more zeros and when i try to paste a string containing ID numbers that starts with a zero, excel converts it to a number thereby deleting the leading zero(s). Is there any way to force excel to keep the leading zero when i paste from the clipboard?
I have tried setting the format for a column as text using xlSheet.Columns("D").NumberFormat = "text" before pasting to try to force excel to keep the leading zero but the ID# comes out unreadable as "############". I have also tried formatting as "General" and custom formatting the column before pasting but have been unsuccessful thus far. I've seen other programs accomplish pasting numbers with leading zeros but how do you do this?
I am just basically sorting through a huge dataset and grabbing unique codes and storing them in an array for later use. Some of the codes are numeric and some are alphanumeric therefore I am storing them as strings. However, when a code is for example 000578 - once a recall this from the array it has become 578. Is there anyway to preserve the entire code, i.e. make the array recall 000578.
I'm using Excel 2007 and am using a look up formula =isna(match( cell, cell range, 0)) to see whether a number in one column occurs in another column.
I have been doing this process successfully for over a year on Excel 2003 and more recently on Excel 2007. This is until today, when it's stopped doing what I expect - could I have changed a setting?
The correct number format for this sheet should be 0000 (so now '67' will appear as '0067' or '290' will appear as '0290' etc.) So I have applied this Custom Format to my columns: '0000' After applying the Custom Format to the spreadsheet the numbers appear correctly - 560 now appears as 0560 - BUT in the formula bar they still only appear as the original format - so 560 is STILL 560 rather than 0560 as it should be!
As a result of this, my look up is not looking for the number in the new format, it's still looking for the number in its original format - so a look up for 0560 is actually returning results for anything with 560 in it: 560, 5600, 5601, 56000, 56007 etc. I need my look up to be looking for 0560 NOT 560.
How do I force the numbers to become 4 digits in the formula bar so that my look up for 0560 only finds a match with a cell containing 0560 and not 560, 5600, 5601, 56000, 56007 etc.
I need to find out the total time an issue was 'open' (not resolved) during business hours. Issues come in and resolution time is based off of a priority. Priority 1 should be resolved in one hour, Priority 2 should be resolved in 4 hours, Priority 3 should be resolved in 1 business day (8 hrs), Priority 4 should be resolved in 2 business days (16 hrs), Priority 5 should be resolved in 5 business days (40 hrs), Priority 6 should be resolved in 10 business days (80 hours).
I have start dates/times field in a column (mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm) , a resolution dates/times field in another column (mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm) and a priority in another column (1-6). I need to calculate the time an issue is in open status (not resolved) based on it's priority but I need for it to take into consideration business hours (Monday thru Friday...7 am to 7 pm)...and not calculate time outside of 'business hours'.
I have a code which displays the values of R2, S2, T2, and U2 in one cell (J2). R2, S2 and U2 are all letters, but T2 is a 2 digit number. If there is a leading zero in T2, then in the display of J2, the leading zero is gone. so if the value of R2 is K, S2 is M, T2 is 01 and U2 is S, then I would want it to display KM01S, but it is only displaying KM1S.
So if I have this data in a column you notice they have different length. Now I want my macro to add leading zeros until the length of all occurrences is 4.
I know for numbers you can do a range.numberformat = "0000".
But this won't work for B74 because (obviously) it will not be recognized as a number.
I know in a formula you can do it with the command TEXT. However I do not want to create extra columns I want something to alter it in place just like the numberformat does but then for numbers and text.
