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?)
I have come across an issue and I am not sure what the best way is to achieve my goal or if it's even possible. We are importing dates that are in IBM DB2 Date format. Example: the date is imported as 1060318(C/YY/MM/DD), which is is actually 2006 March 18th. I would like to convert 1060318 to something that Excel can format into March 18th 2006.
I have a question about conversion of a text format into date format.
2 computers, the first windows vista, the second Windows 8, both Excel 2007.
The purpose is to calculate the difference between 2 dates with hour:minutes:seconds, like for example: 18/12/2012 19:20:00 and 18/12/2012 19:23:03.
So in this example the result should be 00:03:03.
Both dates are formatted with 'personalized' : dd/mm/yyyy hh/mm.
In the first computer everything works like it should, but in the second it is apparently impossible to transform the first of those date h:m:s which is originally in a text format into a date format. I tried all the methods which i found to transform a text date format into a date , like multiplication with 1, Datevalue and others, but nothing seems to work, the result is always "#Value".
The file is sorted A-Z, but if you scroll down towards the bottom, you will see that some values are out of order. Both instances of University of Central Florida and University of North Dakota are out of place.
University of Central Florida should be between University of California and University of Colorado.
University of North Dakota should be between University of Colorado and University of Southern Mississippi.
I am trying to work out an excel workbook for calculating family recipes. I have gotten most of it figured out but am having a problem with one thing. When the serving size of an item is 8 oz & the recipe calls for 14.5 oz the only way I can get it to work properly is to enter 1.75 in the serving size.
But I would like (actually need) to be able to enter the 14.5 and have it calculate the calories correctly - since sometimes the amount to be added to the recipe may be 15 ounces and the serving size is 8 ounces etc....
I have 6 categories that need to be ranked 1-6 in order of highest number of occurances. My ranking formula is showing 1-7, missing number 3. I have attached a sample worksheet further showing what I am trying to explain. I need cell A3 to show a ranking of "3". Currently it shows "4". What am I doing wrong??
I have the following two codes on a userform, The first code performs two steps:
The first step is running the second code (MyDate), which is used for checking the entries in the userform textboxes and if there is any wrong entry a message box appears then it exits sub.
However, what happens when it finds any wrong entry is that it displays the msgbox and instead of exiting sub as it is requested in the (MyDate) code, it resumes running and moves to the second step and adds 1 to ComboBox1 ListIndex.
I am in the process of converting my programs over so as not to use these and I am already seeing a drastic difference in speed.
I have run into a problem that I need help with. I have a spreadsheet similar to the example below. The first column contains a list of college majors and after each major is a row of classes that are required by that major.
The first thing I need to do is search down the first column for the major. Once the major is found I need to search across the row for the class. I am having trouble searching across a single row for the class.
Here is the section of code where I experience the problem
I often have problems with the cells range reference method. For some reason I get an error and can't tell why. Other times it works fine. Is this just an unstable method to use or is this completely wrong? I'm assuming I am using the wrong syntax. It is definetly the range reference causing the problem.
Dim cnt1 as integer, cnt2 as integer,cnt3 as integer
cnt1 = 2 cnt2 = 50 cnt3 = 2
dim myrange as range
set myrange = sheets("sheet1").range(cells(2,cnt1), cells(cnt2,cnt3))
I have no idea why it won't work. I'm basically searching a columner range of cells.
The code below is supposed to insert a column and rename it. However, when I debug, the code only renames the column, it does split or run the loop. I press debug again, and then code executes as it is intended.
I can't explain why I have to press debug twice for in order for the code to work properly.
Code: Sub renameColumns() With Sheets("byPosition")
I thought I had been able to use array to have more than two criterias with Autofilter, but now I am unable to make the following code work. What I am trying to do is have all the records that does not contain either N/A, S/O or xx and also have a filter on column 125 for the value "OUI".
VB: Sub test() Set ws1 = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("SOMMAIRE_EN_ALL") Set ws2 = Workbooks("Fichier_central_2013_anglais_2_CLEAN").Sheets("DETAIL_CONCAT") Set r = ws2.Range("A1:du4783")
I'm using the following code to try to ensure a value is entered into a text box, but when I click over to the next text box skipping the first one entirely, I don't receive any message indicating the previous box is empty. I'm trying to make it so certain fields are required and others are optional. Here's the code I'm currently using:
I have entered a custom sort order under 'first key sort order,' but the field is not sorting according to the list.
I'm sure I entered the list correctly, because I actually entered it a long time ago, and it was working for a while. However, today the underlying data was temporarily erased, and the pivot table, when refreshed, basically went blank. I restored the data and refreshed the table, but this field is back to sorting in the wrong order. Refreshing the pivot table and re-choosing the appropriate sort options do not work.
I have a large file with account numbers in Number format. Before I can import the data into a database the account numbers need to be converted to Text. I use Text(A1,0) to do this in a large file. The data then gets copied into a new Import file. When the data gets copied the account cell reverts back to scientific notation for the long account strings. The import file account column is formated for Text. The only fix is to then double click on each account that is in scientific notation to convert it back to text.
What is the custom format cell type I need to create to make cells in inches (such as 0.125, .25, .375, 3.125) into the format of 00-00-0/0 where the 0/0 is 1/8 of an inch? So, 4.25 would become 00-04-2/8. 62.25 inches would become 05-02-2/8.
I have two columns where there are dates (e.g. 11/05/2009) in a date format; I would like to change the format to `general`; but without losing the original values, i.e. I still want to see 11/05/2009, but just in `general`format. Is it possible to create a macro that will do that? I want these values to stay in the same place, i.e. if it is in cell K10, I still want to have it there - just in other format.
Is there a way to disable the Convert button on the File menu and also to limit the Save As file types? I have a workbook that I maintain in Office 2003 that gets filled out by customers and returned. When a user with a newer version of Excel converts the file, it doesn't function properly when I go open it. I believe the conversion issue has to do with Active X Controls, but I'm using them to do some things that won't work with Forms Controls, so replacing them would be a last resort. Also, upgrading Office isn't an option at this point.
I can't understand why this macro no longer works. The macro runs without error but never proceeds because it doesn't think the dates ever match when infact they do. Here is the part of the macro not working.
Dim wb As Workbook Set wb = ThisWorkbook
For Each Sh In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets( Array("G&I", "Growth")) For Each ce In Sh. Range("a5:a" & Sh.Range("a65536").End(xlUp).Row) If Not IsEmpty(ce) And Not (IsError(ce.Offset(0, 50))) Then If Date = ce.Offset(0, 50) Then
'here is the meat of the macro it never gets to ...
