I used to get data from a database (CorVu & MIMS) in this format "0122458/001". Due to changes in those Databases I now get the data as 2 columns " 0122458" and "1" .What I need to do is somehow get this back to the old format including the leading zeros.
I have two cells. In cell A1 there is a text "(fi) = " and in A2 a number, for example 30. (fi) means a symbol for diameter (letter "f", using Symbol font). Is it possible to joint those two cells in third cell using formula "=A1&A2", maintaining original fonts? What i get is "f = 30", not "(fi) = 30".
I'm usually able to find my answer but I couldn't find anything to match what I need. Anyway... this is either really simple or impossible to do. I have two cells which have times in each. Say A1 has 5:00 PM and A2 has 10:00 PM. I'm just trying to make it so one cell will say:
From 5:00 PM to 10:00 PM... So I tried this ="From " & A1 & " to " & A2
But as I'm sure you already know that yields this result:
I had a hard time to put a suitable title to this query, not sure if above is good enough for my query. I am entering combination of text and number in a cell using a formula. I am wondering if it is possible to add formula which can format number such that it is displayed in accounting format. Example:
Expected output = Trial 1,000 Using this formula ="Trial "&Sheet1!A1 where A1 in Sheet1 = 1000 Output is Trial 1000
I'm trying to convert a set of numbers between 1 and 9999 into text strings, with the number at the end as a four digit string, so 1 becomes "COLUMN0001", 123 becomes "COLUMN0123", etc. In excel, it would be easy - I would just use the text function and convert the number to a string and append it to the word COLUMN, but as far as I know, there isn't an equivalent function in excel and running excel functions in VBA is notoriously slow (especially as I will need to do this about 360,000 times).
I have a problem that when I try to convert text to number and format the number without 2 decimal places as seen on the link I have given below, Instead of 1607.947, I get 1607947. I have Excel 2010 loaded. The details are in below picture.
The included, small database is formatted as text. It is a text feed from an outside source. I simply want to format the cells into either numbers or general format but not text... seems simple, and it should be, but the only way I can get this done is to go to each cell and access the formula bar and re-enter the number by pressing Enter.
I have a standard block of text with numbers in it pulled from various calculations in a financial model. I have done this through a formula
e.g. ="You gross profit percentage is " & D9 & "% and your gross profit is $" & D10 & "." Problem is i'd like to format the numbers that pull through so they are easier to read. At the moment in the above example D10 results in $-600000000. I'd like it to look like $(600,000,000).
I have a number in A1, another number in B1, a Date in C1. In D1, I am referencing all 3 of the other cells: =CellA1 & "-" & CellB1 & "----" & CellC1. Trouble is the date is coming through as a number. Is there a way that I can get the date to show as displayed as opposed to the value of the cell?
I have written some code which takes data from multiple spreasheets and formats it in a specif way. However one problem I have is getting the right data format. As you will see from the input files the date and time cells are separated into two and the macro is supposed to aggregate these together in one cell with a space in between - but I cannot manage to perfect this !!! The output is in a number format instead. I have attached the input files. The code written so far is as follows - works perfectly apart from date format that comes is in the output file once you run the code.
Dim Obj1 As Object Dim Obj2 As Object Dim UserList() Sub RunMe() Dim Str1 As String Dim myPath As String Dim i As Integer Set Obj1 = CreateObject("excel.application") myPath = "C:Test" 'please note you should a "" at the end. Str1 = Dir(myPath & "*.xls") Set Obj2 = CreateObject("excel.application") Do Obj1.Application.DisplayAlerts = False Obj1.Workbooks.Open (myPath & Str1) 'For i = 1 To UBound(userslist).............
I am having problems choosing a format for the column in my spreadsheet that contains my account codes. This is especially a problem when the code starts with an '=' sign and is followed by a number or has a '£' sign followed by a number.
I receive the file in a .txt format which I guess if I get it that way I would not have a problem but as I need to work on the file in excel before uploading it I experience problems. For instance when I open the file the codes that begin with '=' + a letter for instance =Y just comes up as '# name?' and only when I click in the cell can I see that it is =Y. Also the code '=1' just comes up as '1' as does '£1' - now this causes problems as for a start I need to do Vlookups on the account code but now instead of three distinct codes I have 3 1's.
The only way that I have discovered how to solve this is to click into each cell and add a ' before the text. (this changes the format to text - right??) But obviously this is very time consuming - is their a quicker way to change these cells. I can't just right click and format cells - text. This does not work?
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.
I am trying to reference text and another document. The text I want is " stock option expense negatively impacted 1Q:07 by:" and the number i want it to bring back is currently in the model as a percentage. However I would like to bring it back in basis points which would be the percentage times 10,000. So if its in the model as 0.4%, I'd like to bring it back as 40 bps. Here is the formula I am using that is insufficient.
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)
I can't seem to make user-defined format that puts a text in front of a number and/or a text.
Let's say I have A1: 13, A2: texttext A3: text7 and I want to format a lot of cells to "Ilike 13" / "Ilike texttext" / "Ilike text7"... ie add the same text in the front of the cell, no matter what the content is.
I did manage it seperately, with "texttext" @ for text and "texttext" # for numbers, but what's the general one?
I use pivot tables extensively in my job. I have several spreadsheets that feed from acess database tables to build pivot tables. Besides the fields imported from Acess, I also create calculated fields. The problem is, for both the calculated fields and the imported fields, the number formatting does not stick. I know how to go to field settings, then to number, and change the customized format. The problem is, once I take that field out of the pivot table and bring another one with a different format (say, bring a field with currency format and take away one field with a percentage format) and then bring the original field back to the privot table, the number format is gone.
This is really annoying since I work with dozens of fields, and it takes time to change the number settings every time I change fields on the pivot table, and the number of decimal places, etc. I stress that I know how to change the number formatting on fields, it's just that it excel does not remember it afterwards.
I thought that maybe the formulas in excel might allow one to include the formating, but I have not been able to find if this is possible, and if so, how to do it. So, for example, the following formula for a calculated field:
I have a data set which is in a date format of MM/DD/YY. I have converted it to YYYYMMDD. I now need to copy and permanently past the values so that the value within the cell always reads to result of the date in the format of YYYYMMDD.
Example: -current = 07/01/08 -new format = 20080701 (cell still reads 07/01/08) -would like the cell to read 20080701
My main goal is to bring this into Access and use this dataset with another data set, which uses the YYYYMMDD format.
I am importing a data table from Excel into word. All works well except for the first column of my data, which contains numbers formatted as currency. I am using a bunch of loops to transfer the data into word, and for each cell the code looks like this:
Is there a way to tweak the code and preserve the formatting when I am importing numbers into word?
I tried the following code but it gives me type mismatch error:
I have an excel file that is used to create a large text file. This is all done manually so I wrote some code to create the file automatically. I have everything working except that I am losing some info. The info is zeros after the decimal point. Almost all of the cells are formatted as numbers with 3 decimal places. It is common to have values of 0.000 that end up just 0 when they are written to the text file. Is there a way to keep the formatting (all decimal places)? Here is an example of code that I am using to write data directly from a cell to the file.
I just copied a range of data from a website however these numbers are in TEXT format.
Basically each number in this data set has a SPACE behind. This turn the number into a text itself and i cannot do a sum for this range of data. I tried TRIM function and also tried to format it to number but no luck. Also tried to mutilply the range to 1 yet they're still in text format.
I was wandering is there a way to format or put a formula which will format the numbers to be with two decimal places. The cell containing the formula is already formatted as number and the source tables are numbers with two decimal places.
i want the result to look like this $24.68 & $26.20
However I have thirty text boxes on the Userform all linked to cells on a sheet. How do I apply this so that I dont have thirty lines of code. It just does not look elegant. I'm doing this because the number on the userform shows more decimal places than the cells format. Cell formated to 3 places Userform shows about 9 mostly .999999 etc
I have been playing with custom formats recently and I'm wondering if there is anyway to make them wrap?
specifically I have several results that I have been formatting to show what they are related to
397235 visitors 392648 visitors 365487 visitors
I want these to display as visitors, but still be numbers so that they can be summed etc. The problem is that I need the text to wrap so that visitors is on the second line in the cell. unfortunatley all i get is a ########## error to show the cell is not wide enough even with wrap text turned on.
Cell L90 to L120 are input cells where I type " Percentage" or "Dollar Amount". I need the five cells to the right of each input cell starting two cells over, to be formatted accordingly. I read a thread similar to what I'm asking for suggesting a worksheet change macro, but I can't quite figure it out for a range of cells. Also, in case I need to add a row to my sheet before all of these cells, how can I make sure that this will still work without having to go into the code. Is this an activecell thing?
