I have received an excel file from an external source. Every time I change a number in a cell it reverts to a 2 decimal number. eg. I type in 8710 and it converts the value to 87.10. I have looked at the number formats, cleared the numbers format but I keep getting the same result. I have also e-mailed the file to someone else and everything is ok on their computer. Is there a property in the excel program that I need to change?

I am looking for a VBA to sort rows which include actual numbers and text representing decomposed CTQs (or procedures in IT development)

Code:

Col A Col B 1Billing Accuracy 2Billing Time 3Credit Check Accuracy 4Credit Check Time 2.1Bill preparation

[Code]....

This is the order in which the data is copied and saved from worksheets in which they are developed. Note that 3 rows (8.1.2.1 through 8.1.2.3) are below 8.1.3 (because the three come from Worksheet 8.1.2 which came after worksheet 8.1). The first four rows came from a Top Level Worksheet. I would like to see them intermixed but in proper order.

I have a weird problem with Excel. It recognises all numbers as numbers but excluding the number 1. It is only recognised as text as well as a decimals, for example 3.4. So every time I try and add these values up it completely ignores 1 and decimals.

I want to convert the number in a cell, G7, from a whole number into a decimal and then divide that decimal into a whole number in cell E7 and give me the quotient in cell E8.

I received a complaint from one of my colleague that he is facing sudden problem with Ms-Excel(2002) The problem is When he feeds number 2 in to a cell it automatically converts in to 0.02. I tried using "Decrease decimal" and "format cells" option and even through uninstalling office and reinstalling a different version but the problem still continues.

I 'm not sure why my custom function "minimize" is not working... I tried to do this with one of excels built in functions and would prefer a solution that way, but had to go the VBA route in the mean time. x and theta are paired together and I'm trying to reduce a select number of values x by their corresponding ratio.s It's corresponding ratio is determined by what degree value theta corresponds to. I wanted to do an if statement, but got confused...

=if((B2>=$J2)*(B2<$J3)) , A2*K2 , if((B2>=$J3)*(B2<$J4) , A2*$K3 , if((B3>=$J4)*(B3<$J5) , A3*$K4, .... etc. etc. etc........................

I'm trying to clean up a very large list of last names. Only one individual cell, but that cell includes numbers, decimal points, and spaces inbetween the numbers. All I want left in the cell is the last name. I have just under 100,000 to do! How would I go about this? Using Excel 2007.....

I use a worksheet full of formulas to know what divisors a number have, but i need to see what numbers have no decimals in about 500-1000 cells. Is there a formula whitch computer can use to see if it shows a number or not (if a number have or dont have decimals)?

I've got a spreadsheet that's basically a large list of numbers, both whole and decimal. For example, let's say this is in cells A1-A5:

4 0.65 1.34 3 8.2

Is there a formula to get rid of all of the whole numbers but leave the decimals? (What I mean by that is I don't need 4 or 3 as they're whole, but I need the decimals to be left alone).

I know it's probably a really awkward question but I have over 2,000 lines to go through, it will take a long time to do manually.

Perhaps if it's not possible to a formula to delete entries, maybe just make all whole numbers say something like "NO", so that I can sort the column in A-Z order and delete all of the 'NO's quickly by highlighting them all together.

I need a cell to restrict the input: -Only numbers are allowed. -No date posible. -Any amount of decimals (they must all be shown in the cell).

I tried using the data validation and using the IsNumber() to restrict any non numeral input. The problem with this approach is that if the user enters a date; it apprears as a date format (eg: "5.May"). I'm using an european excel, where the decimal separator is a comma instead of a point; so if a user accidentaly types "5.5" instead of "5,5"; the cell will show "5.May".

I also tried the cell format/number/number format. The problem in here is that I dont know how many decimal positions will the input number have; and I need them all to be shown.

I am trying to convert Degrees Minutes & Decimals of a minute (12° 34.567') to Degrees and decimals of a degree (12.57611°). I have the formula to convert latitude, that is two digits, but it doesn't want to work with longitudes, three digits. (see attachment). This is the formula that I am using:

I have a simple spreadsheet for keeping track of gas mileage which I have been using for over two years with no problems. I have five columns A through E and right now I'm on row 72, that's where the problem started. When I enter the starting mileage in A and tab to B it changes the mileage number to a date and as my mileage number I type in changes the date also changes as I tab to B. See the sample below.

A B C D E 15357155968.491 28.14745024239 9/12/19420:00 10.44423.36269628244

The part that puzzles me is it does it in row 72, 73, 74, 75, and 76 then it goes back to working normal, and even though it puts the date in A and zeros in B it does the math right. I looked at column A and B for those rows and there isn't any formulas in them.

I Have a formula in column D =(B72-A72)/C72 and column E is just =B72-A72. Other then that the only other formulas I have is in column B row 177 it gives me total miles, in 178 it gives me total gallons, and in 179 it gives me average MPG.

When I run a report, for some reason our system imports certain numbers which have errors, as a consequence when I try and do a pivot table I get a lot of returns showing #div/o!. If you look at the spreadsheet the errors start on line 103 sheet 2 and finish on 2631. Sometime the report can be huge and takes a while to go through these manually to convert to numbers.

I am creating a spreadsheet to manage Block ID conflicts when adding mods to a Minecraft Server. Example spreadsheet is attached.

Description: Column A contains a list of available numbers (e.g. 1-20 and 31-50). Column B contains a list of numbers a new mod tries to use up by default (i.e. 1-25). A number in Column B that is not in Column A must be changed to the nearest number that is in Column A. In this example, numbers 21-25 in B are not available in A and must be changed to 31-35, respectively. Column C should be the result of changing Column B (i.e. 1-20 and 31-35).

Issue: The main problem is that as a given cell in Column B changes, that number needs to become unavailable in Column A for the next change. For example, when 21 in B returns 31, 31 can no longer be used for the next number in B (22).

I have been able to use VLOOKUP or INDEX/MATCH functions to lookup the numbers to be changed.

What is the formula to cover multiple different text that could come up? I could have an answer that is NA, Yes and also a blank cell and if I could I would like to have it set up as follows:

Is it possible for excel to monitor Row J for a letter "Y". If a "Y" is put into a cell in row J a macro runs. If the "Y" was in column 6 I need the macro to copy A6 B6 C6 D6 E6 F6 etc to other cells on a different worksheet.If "Y" was in column 7 it will copy A7 B7 C7 etc to the same other cells on a different worksheet.

I generate a range of random numbers in column C. Then I perform another task and then copy the randoms numbers in the range c4:c(some row) into another sheet.

But the two columns are not the same? I want to copy the same random numbers into the other sheet.

Is there any formula or easy way to automate the changing of a numeric input into words, eg if you input 100 in one cell, the output in another would be "one hundred"?

I was trying to decrease the decimal places of the data figures that I'm currently working on my report, however, it keeps rounding-up the decimal numbers. I wish to keep the original numbers and just decrease the decimal places.

For example: The original figure is = 7260.12903225806 Upon decreasing the decimal figures to just 2, the result became = 7260.13

Is it possible for me to just have this result = 7260.12 instead of 7260.13?

I've tried using the TRUNC formula butit does not work if the 2nd decimal value is 0.

For example: The original figure is = 227161.905808985 Upon applying the formula, the result became = 227161.9 instead of 227161.90

I've 2 worksheets, Summary and Sales. I need to get the total sales figure from the "Sales" worksheet onto the Summary worksheet. Sales data are pasted onto the worksheet monthly. Tried using vlookup but problem is, the column containing the total sales figure may vary and I need to update the vlookup formula. Another problem is that sometimes the Total sales (the lookup value) is not in the first column. Tried using the Index and Match combo but cannot get it to work. I've attached a simple mock up to hopefully illustrate my case better. I believe the experts in this forum should find this rather easy!

When opening a .CSV created from a third party software, one of the columns is converted to date format. The numbers are imported in #/# format. and Excel changes most of the numbers to 2-Jan, 3-Jan etc... This would not be that big of an issue if I could simply set it back. Clearing format or changing to text converts it to a 5 digit number.

The only way I have found to get it to work properly thus far is to open a blank sheet and import data and setting the column to text prior to import.

I would like to find a way of opening the CSV file without all the extra steps. Is there a setting that can be turned off?

I've got a main workbook (excel 2007) with a main spreadsheet where i group all the information (text and values) about brands and models linked to 10 workbooks (brands) with several spreadsheets (one spreadsheet=one model).

On the main spreadsheet I've got 16 lines for each model which they have the follow formulas, wich are linked to other workbook / spreadsheet (Mar/Gato)

The difference between above values is 13, it corresponds 12 months and the total column (12+1)

For the formula 3) the table array its the same, the only difference is instead of starting A$3, starts in A$2

5) The update of the formulas 1) 2) 3) for 2014

I'm doing this manually... The formulas are updated like this,for 2013, I've got table array A$3:$AE$78 and the return value (;17, then for 2014 i will have a table array A$3:$AR$78 and the return value will be (;30, and so on

5) Change the network drive

For other reasons I've to change my files to another network drive, something like this:

Q:KPI2014Main File

6) Main Goal

I was thinking using Excel's regular Find and Replace feature to change:

- The network drive designation - the table array area - The return value

But I don't know if this process ( Find and Replace) is safe and clean. I'm doing this manually and I've got on the main worbook/sheet 4000 lines with 3 formulas its 12000 operations!I'm on the 350 line....!

The main goal is to update the all formulas (links) to "brand" workbooks and inside "model" spreadsheets automatically with a macro.

why is pivot table changing numbers to dates. It was fine all along, numbers retained the fromat of source data and now, all numbers in field columns are turning into dates. is there a setting I can change to prevent excel from reformatting numbers to dates?
