Insert 0 At Beginning Of Field Depending On Number Of Characters

Dec 27, 2012

Example below of the data I have. I need to convert dates into DD.MM.YY (8 chars) for SAP. I receive spreadsheets where the date is dd/mm/yy and I use the replace to convert the "/" to ".", then format this column as TEXT. My problem is some of these sheets have hundreds of records and rather than individually scroll through and look for data that requires the "0", is there a way to insert this. I can custom format that it looks as it has the zero, but it is not in the true data.

1.10.12 data should be 01.10.12
11.10.12 this is correct
3.11.12 data should be 03.11.12
3.06.12 data should be 03.06.12 etc

Conditioally Insert Characters To Beginning Of Cell

Feb 8, 2006

I have a column of Supplier IDs. Maximum number of characters is 9. If the supplier ID is not 9 characters long, it should have 0's placed in the front so that there are 9 characters. For example, Supplier ID is 487695. It should look like 000487695. I can get Excel to format the cells correctly by using the custom format. However, when I import into Access, it trims the 0's away even though the field is identified as text because the custom format does not actually change the "value" of the cell. It merely formats the cells.

How can I get this column to correctly import into Access from Excel?

VLOOKUP Using Text Lookup Field Beginning With Zero?

Mar 13, 2014

Having difficulty with a VLOOKUP that uses a text lookup field beginning with 0. For all the other numbers formatted as text I use this function:


For the one that begins with a 0 I have to use this function:

[Code] .....

This is a problem for me, because I need to be able to copy the top function to all of my sheets without having to edit the ones where the lookup field begins with 0. I could alter my VBA to specifically search for those cases and adjust, but that seems unneccesary.

More info - The beginning column of the Table Array (i.e. the lookup field I'm searching for) is a function of another cell; both cells are formatted as text. Here is the function:

[Code] ....

I have to put a single quote in front of the lookup field, so that "064" is not displayed as "64" even if the cell is formatted as text. I have another instance where I am looking up "'791" and it works fine with the first VLOOKUP above. Even if I remove the single quote this will work. However, once there is a leading zero the function no longer works and I must use the second VLOOKUP listed above.

Insert Formula Depending On Cells Depending Of Variables?

Jan 27, 2014

In a macro I want to automatically insert a formula in several cells. The formula depends on other cells, and I want to be able to manipulate these cells with variables. Here is my code:

[Code] .....

All my variables are declared:

Sheets("DATOS YTD 2014").Cells(I, Semana + 1) is the cell I want to be able to chose due to the variables
Sheets("DATOS YTD 2014").Cells(I, 3) is the reference cell for the VLOOKUP formula, that will vary with I
SheetMonth.Range("B3:W172") is a range in the sheet SheetMonth which is fixed

The error message I receive is the following: "Run-time error 13, Type mismatch"

I precise that the next step is to make the ",6," part in the vlookup formula also variable... but I guess once my current issue is solved this one will be a piece of cake.

Adding A Zero At The Beginning Of An INTL Phone Number

Apr 25, 2007

I have a very long list of international phone numbers in a .csv format that I need to put a zero in front of each one. We are doing an international autodialer campaign for an upcoming event and need the zeros at the beginning to pay for the call. How do you get around Excel not allowing a zero at the front of a number and the .csv format not allowing you to save certain formats? I've been searching the archived posts for a hour now and can't find anything on this!

Here is an example

Finding How Many Words Are Entirely Made Up From Characters In Field?

Jul 16, 2014

i bought a tattslotto scratch card (for those of ya outside of australia, not sure what youd call em, basically lottery ticket/game), this game is essentially a crossword puzzle, you scratch your letters out in a box then you have a list of words, you need to find words that are made up entirely of your letters, the more words you find, the more you win ive kind of screwed up the card and scratched out words i dont have, however i do have atleast 2 words and i think ive got more, potentially could win big but wanna know how much before i go claim it

ive opened up a new workbook, in the A column ive got a list of all my words, then in C1 ive got a field where ive entered all my letters, wondering if theres a way to get excel to work it out for me (like an IF statement on the fields in column A to compare them to C1, or some kind of conditional formatting rule)

VBA Code For Adding 0 Depending On Cells Amount Of Characters

Aug 5, 2014

I'm working with a column that contains dates. The dates are pulled from a system that doesnt always have dates in the format

mm/dd/yyyy => 09/26/2014

but instead sometimes

i.e., 0's are missing.

I'm looking for a macro that inserts these missing 0's

**So I suppose the criteria should be that if the cell is 9 characters long (including the "/"s), then it adds a 0 as first character**
***the cells that are only 8 characters, in that case there would have to be insert 0 again as character 1, and 0 as character 4 (if 0 is already added as first)***

I'll attach a file that contains dates : test.xls‎

Insert Vlookup Depending On Certain Conditions?

Feb 9, 2014

I am trying to retrieve data from another file using the VLOOKUP function however this is only to happen depending on if any of the 3 items of data appear in column 8(H)


I have the following and know this is not correct

Sub BlockAllocationsVlookupAll()
Dim x As Long For x = 1 To 65536
If InStr(1, Sheet1.Range("$H$" & x), "OLY") > 0 Then Sheet1.Range("$I$" & x) = Sheet1.Range("$I$" & x) & "sometext" End If Next
End Sub

I know the above doesn't do exactly what needs to be edited to include the Vlookup below

=VLOOKUP(A21,'[001 - Allocations - Blocks.xls]CurrentDayAll'!$1:$65536,9,FALSE)

The other issue is that the cell the VLOOKUP points to first will also change due to the varying length of the report

How To Insert Text Field Into Appropriate Worksheet Based On Alphabetical Value

Oct 10, 2011

Im trying to make a simple macro for cataloging some equipment and where its located.

I've created a user form where there is a free text field for Equipment. Instead of just inserting this entry into the first available cell, i would like for it to place it in the first available cell under the corresponding first letter of the equipment to the named worksheets A-Z.

I have named the worksheets A through to Z, and upon entering the free text 'Equipment' name, say for instance Trolley, for it to recognise the T, open the worksheet named T and insert the equipment name and location etc across the first free column.

Formatting A Number Field To Hold A Specific Number Of Digits

Feb 12, 2009

I wrote an excel program in Excel'03 for a dental office to manage state assistance patients and one of the table columns is the state assistance number. The problem is that the program defaults to a number format when it is entered instead of a text format, which is what I want. The issue is that state assistance numbers are always 8 digits and when it defaults to a number field the program drops the required preceeding zeros.

For example the number 00123456 will sometimes show up as 123456, which is wrong. It's like sometimes it will show up right and other times it gets a butterfly in its brain and deletes those zeros irritating the receptionist here. So, how do I get the table to either stay in text format or set up a number format that keeps the preceeding zeros?

Insert Multiple Characters Into String With LEFT RIGHT Functions?

Apr 29, 2014

I've got a long list of account numbers of varying length and ultimately need to add a dash and a dot into these numbers. Here's an example

12345678 to> 1-2345.678
123456789 to> 12-3456.789
1234567890 to> 123-4567.890

The standard format is always 3 numbers after the . and 4 numbers between the - and .

I can get to this by doing a series of functions starting with this:

=LEFT(A1,LEN(A1)-3)&"."&RIGHT(A1,3) to get 12345.678 or 123456.789

copy/pasting that value into another field and then doing this

=LEFT(E1,LEN(E1)-8)&"-"&RIGHT(E1,8) to get the results above

I can't quite figure out the format to combine the multiple steps/functions into one so that I'm not copy/pasting values and re-doing the function.

I have a spread sheet I have set up to calculate sales results, I have a column for each week in the quarter with the date at the top and a different page for each individual. I want to be able to enter a number to show how many weeks we have had and the spreadsheet to give me a cumulitive amount for the cells up to that date.

If I enter 6 in A1 it would be C3+C4+C5+C6+C7+C8 etc.

Lookup Date In Range Depending On A Number

May 5, 2009

I have a Master workbook with 4 sheets named WEEK 1 to WEEK 4. At work we work around 13 4 week periods and need this workbook to be dated accordingly, that is Period 1 Week 1 and date of first day (Sunday) of that period. The ideal solution would be for the user to enter 1 to 13 into a cell and via a button all dates to be populated and a new workbook created for that period. I have attached a sample workbook with the 4 weekly sheets and a date range on another sheet to show the range I need the dates from. I hope the workbook explains what I need better than my explanation here!
