Is there any way to change the decimal point from the usual period symbol (.) to a comma (,). The reason being, i have a structural design spreadsheet and the new terminology is just so, changed from 00.00 to 00,00 I have tried cell formatting but it just uses a comma (,) for numbers in their thousand and it wont do what i need.

I am having problems applying custom format to numbers that need to be formatted. custom format use is 0",00". When I apply the custom format above to whole numbers, I achieve the results I want:

0.00 20.00 40.00

becomes

0,00 20,00 40,00

However, when I apply to numbers with decimal places

0.20.......

how I can change the custom format so that the period is replaced with a comma but the decimal values are preserved?

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.

Is there a way to format a cell based upon a condition? If the cell value is <1, I want to show two decimal places. If the cell is >1, I want to show zero decimal places. I tried to use the conditional formatting, but there is no option for this.

I am trying to export a range of data from excel to xml. I have a module that puts the range of data into one cell:

Code:

Function Concat(myRng As Range) Dim myStr As String Dim c As Range myStr = "" For Each c In myRng If c.Value "" Then myStr = myStr & ", " & Chr(34) & c.Value & Chr(34) Next Concat = Mid(myStr, 2, 9999) End Function

How to all data to come in with one decimal place (eg. "4.5","5.0",7.0")

I have a UserForm with different text boxes, everytime I put a number with decimals (ex 100.23) on a Textbox and I want that number to be shown on a excel cell, VBA changes the "dot" for a "comma" so excel understands it as an integer number 100,23 (10023).

I know the basics of excell, but haven't ever written any formulas or macros (if that's what I need?) that would perform the following opperations. Bare with me, it's a three step process.

1. I need any zero's to the right of the last number (1-9) to be removed. (I think this can be done with the click of a button, somewhere?)

examples: a. 173.17300 = 173.173 b. 231.11000 = 231.11 c. 53.00000 = 53.

2. I also need for the decimal to be moved to the right of the last number after the zeroes have been removed from the previous step. (This seems to be the most deficult step, but most important for me.)

examples: a. 173.173 = 173173 b. 231.11 = 23111 c. 53. = 53

3. I then need to be able to cross reference those remaining numbers with a set of numbers I have.

examples: Remaining Numbers / My List a. 173173 / Not on list b. 23111 / MATCH c. 53 / Not on list

I've just imported a file into a UK version of Excel from a German made datalogger. The decimal points (which should look like this 0.0) all appear as comas (0,0) with the result that Excel can't read them.

I have an UserForm, where I have several text boxes. One of these textboxes should be entered with decimals. I have been able to cope with the declarations, and set the variable as Variant. However, is it possible to prevent the user inserting "," instead of "."? Alternatively, automatically change "," to "."?

I am trying to create a unique sample code by putting together the values of other cells that a user will input. It's all working well apart from the last part, where I am trying to include a decimal number. I want the decimal number to appear without the central "." and in a four digit format. e.g. 2.5 would appear as 0250, 14.25 would appear as 1425. This is the formlua I am using currently:

However, where the value of H4 is 2.5, I am getting a result of 0303 (I've put this part in bold). I have attached a small spreadsheet to aid understanding.

I have a vba macro that takes data from one workbook and pastes it into another workbook. In doing this I have declared a few variables of type single (I only need two decimal precision). However, when I copy the values from the cells on the source workbook and paste them into the target workbook, the numbers end up having 12 decimal places. Ultimately, this extra precision causes my totals to be off by .01 or more after a while. I have tried rounding the number as I pull it off the source workbook into the variable, but that didn't matter. How do I solve this problem? Code for pulling data from source workbook:...

I need a formula to multiply only the decimal number in a cell and not the integer. For example: the number in the cell is 57.3615. I want to multiply .3615 only.

I have a column of cells with values - 0.2%, 0.32%, 0.22, 0.5 etc. The cells with % symbol are in ' Percentage, 2 decimal' format while the plain numbers are in 'General' format i.e. column contains cells in either of these formats. I need a macro where I can specify the column and it will select the cells with the % format, convert it to 'General' and multiply the result by 100 eg. 0.2% converted to 'General' becomes 0.002. When multiplied by 100, result is 0.2 i.e. is displayed without the % symbol.

I am having slight trouble with the formatting of some cells. Every month I will be copying data into a row, the problem is Excel thinks it's a date instead of an integer of some sort.

The value copied will look something like this: 79:42:00 (meaning 79 hours and 42 minutes)

Excel is taking that and interpreting it as: 1/3/1900 7:42:00 AM

Is there an easy way to format this so Excel thinks it's a number (even if 79.7).

I tried to change the format of the cell to "Text", but it changes it to: 3.32083333333333

I cannot change the number format in a single sheet of my spreadsheet. I can go to format cells and select colour etc but it will not change the number format.

Another issue on the same sheet is that linked cells i.e cell b3 formula "=A3" displays "=A3" not the actual value in A3. Again, i cannot change the number format of this cell and yes, auto calc is on.

Whilst not wanting to offer a partial explaination (per the rules) just before this happened i was pressing a combitation of Shift+Control+` - not sure if that is relevant.

I want to get the sheet back to its 'normal' working order.

i have a column with times of day and need a helper column to show the starting hour. for example, column a1 - 9:53am would like b1 to show 9am or 9. i tried customizing the date format to 'h' only, but when I pivot the table it still shows several 9's

I have an if statement which shows either GP% or average revenue per product. The problem is that GP% needs to be in a percentage format and revenue per product needs to be in number format. 500 is now shown as 50000% or 50% will be shown as 0.5 for example. Is there anyway on changing the format of a cell based on the number?

I have used this forum periodically and it has saved my bacon on numerous occasions so I know someone can help with this!

I created a workbook for staff planning and it's becoming a behemoth!

I'm wanting a range of cells within a row to change the number format to "[hh]:mm" based on a value in the 2nd column of that row. I have played about with a few things and can't seem to get it to work. What I have so far is this:

I have a large project with many worksheets. Somehow I managed to change the default number format for new worksheets to Time. So... when I create a new worksheet and paste stuff into it I get everything in AM/PM. How can I change the default number format to Number?

I have been trying to type a date in a column in MS excel. But excel always reads it as a serial number.

How Can I get it to display the date as it is in date format. I have the next column formatted/ formulated to display the day of the date in the previous column.

Format the number in Column AL to '[hh]:mm' when Column C's value is ="P/T", otherwise format to 'General'

Column C's value is referenced from another sheet in the same workbook via a VLOOKUP function.

Column AL's value is based on an IF formula which goes like this: =IF($C4="F/T",SUM($AJ4)+($AK4/2),SUM($D4:$AH4))

Basically the above formula asks if Column C's value is F/T then count (because if F/T then the corresponding values in that row are whole numbers). If not, then SUM (because if P/T the corresponding values in that row are set to [hh]:mm format).

I have another sheet in the same workbook which has code (quoted below) which does something similar but I don't understand it enough to get it doing what I want for the sheet in question.

I need to list 4 digit numbers in each section followed by commas, but whatever I do it goes to 3digits (e.g. I need "1234,5678,9123" and as soon as I hit Enter it goes to "123,456,789,123"). It wont work to format as text because I have a whole bunch of 12 digit numbers to break up into 4.

I have a macro that creates an email based on the contents of each column in the worksheet. The macro works great, but I would like to format a column (A) which contains numbers into the Comma Style, prior to sending out the email.

Is there a VBA code that will format a given column (A) into a certain style (Currency, Comma, Percentage, etc) ?

How can I drop the whole number part of a number and leaving only the decimal part of the number. Then multiply the decimal part of the number with a number. Then repeat this in a sequence. The object is to convert Lat and Long decimals to Hr. Min. Sec.

C9 is a user entered value, currently formated general C10 is a user entered value, currently formated decimal with one decimal C11 is a user entered percentage, currently formated percent with two decimals C15 is a formula calculation, currently formated general

I've tried formating cells to general (and/or) text and the values appear to be correct but still don't show what I want.

The most popular entries for C9 will be: 123.12 123.123 1.1234 1.12345 Any of the above could have one or more trailing zeros.

I would like C15 to show the same amount of decimal places that the user enters in C9. If user enters one, two, three, four, five, etc...decimal places in C9 then show the same amount of decimal places in C15 after the calculation is done and include any trailing 0's that are needed to match the number of decimals in C9.

I've tried different If statements with custom format to try to get the format of C9 transfered to C15 but haven't come across the right way to do this.

I need to control the amount of decimals allowed by the entry of another column same row so I do not have to format the cells everytime to get the correct decimal places. I need all my data in one table so I can do pivot tables.
