Preserve Cell Number Format In Message Box

May 28, 2007

I'm writting an Excell VB application which reads data from my spreadsheet and places it into the text member of an IXMLDOMElement node in order to generate a QBXML request.

The cell I am reading from has datatype number with two decimal places as required by the xml scheme. The problem is that the Range.Value Variant data type drops the decimal point and any trailing zeros so that 1197.00 become 1197. Unfortunately, the QBXML parser requires to see the decimal as well as trailing zeros. So, 1197.90 must show up as precisely that. Changing 1197.90 into 1197.9, for example, also breaks the xml.

My Excel VBA book specifically states that a Variant data type holding numerical data will maintain the data type assigned to it.

I also tried declaring a local decimal (Dim MyDecimal As Decimal) thinking to try copying the Range.Value value to it before assigning to the QBXML field in order to force the correct data format but my VBA macro compiler does not apparently recognize "Decimal" as a valid data type event though my book clearly indicates it is one of the valid VB data types.

I am using Excel 2000. Are these problems solved in newer versions?

Search & Replace - Preserve Cell Format

Jul 13, 2006

I'm using the code below to do a simple search & replace. The code is working fine.
My problem is after the search & replace is done, certain cells that contain numbers look weird with decimal points & plus signs similar to Format Cells - Scientific. How do I prevent these cells from looking 'weird' in my code?

I've attached a workbook with 2 sheets called Before & After. You can see the 'weird' cells in After.

Sub Macro1()
Cells.Replace What:=": ", Replacement:="", LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder _
:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, ReplaceFormat:=False
End Sub

BeforeDoubleClick But Preserve Original Cell

Sep 18, 2008

Within Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick, I have the following simple code extract that sets the appropriate autofilter to the correct value (and highlights a couple of cells for clarity) when a particular cell is double-clicked...

If Not Intersect(Target, Range("C10:AQ11")) Is Nothing Then

If Not Intersect(Target, Range("C10:D11")) Is Nothing Then

Selection.AutoFilter Field:=10, Criteria1:="C"
Range("C10:D11").Interior.ColorIndex = 36

End If

You'll be happy to hear that the event works as expected.

However I would like to add the following enhancement: after Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick completes the "double-clicked cell" is selected, is it possible for the "original" cell to be re-selected once the event completes?

Preserve Formatting When Pasting Into A Cell

Feb 24, 2010

I am making template and trying to preserve formatting when users paste into a cell. From my research, I have found that this is impossible with simple format protection, it works to prevent changing formating, but if something is pasted (with normal paste), the format will change.

I have found a few solutions, but can't get them to work correctly

Solution A: Disable normal paste and substitute Paste Special - Values

How will this work with pasting via CTRL + V and the right click menu? I need both to function.

Solution B: Allow users to paste normally, but use a macro to copy formatting from a hidden sheet

I actually found code for this, but I couldn't figure out exactly how to impliment it. The sheet that users will be pasting into is called "Batch Summary" and I was trying to pull formatting from a sheet names "Batch Summary Format", but was getting an error.

Change Format Of Cell Into Number?

Dec 15, 2013

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:
(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

Changing Cell Number Format With VBA

Jul 27, 2012

I believe Range.Numbeformat is the property.

I have a cell with a dropdown picker. If the user chooses "Distractor" from the picker, Worksheet_Change triggers an Inputbox to open, asking what kind of distractor it is. We'll use "Gloves" for this example.

I want the cell to display "Distractor - Gloves" while keeping the actual value as "Distractor"

The following is not working for me:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim DistractorText As String
Select Case Target.Address
Case "$B$23"
If Target.Value = "Distractor" Then
DistractorText = InputBox("Type of Distractor:")
Target.NumberFormat = "@" & " - " & DistractorText

There's more code, but I copy-pasted the trouble area. The last line using the NumberFormat property is giving me trouble.

Format Number & Text In Same Cell

Jun 28, 2007

i have the next formula

=IF(C6="PRODUCT 1","$"&VLOOKUP(B6,N:T,3,FALSE)&" & "&"$"&VLOOKUP(B6,N:T,5,FALSE),"N/A)

which aberrantly returns text:

$24.675 & $26.2

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

Format Cell Number Based On Value

Feb 19, 2008

I need to evaluate some offers and for the management I need to follow some strict rules like:

1. 1.000.000 instead of 1000000. But that's not the problem
2. to use maximum 3 digits... Example: 10,2 or 6.12

I tried with an if function and then round, but I think that's not right way. If number < 10, then round with 2 decimal places else, round with 1 decimal place

Subscript Macro: Go Cell By Cell And Format The Last Number

I would like ONLY the last NUMBER of the cell to be formatted as subscript. The cells with "Bbls" would be left as is.

Format Cell To Show % As The Number Type-in

May 1, 2014

(3) examples when I type a number to a cell:
If I type a number "1", I want that cell to show 1.000% but not 100.000%.
If I type a number ".2", I want that cell to show 0.200% but not 20.000%.
If I type a number "25.5", I want that cell to show 0.255% but not 2550.000%.

I play around with the below custom format cells but they do not work.

I could use two cells one for number, other cell has a % mark. But I rather to format a single cell if it is possible.

Change Cell Format Depending On Number

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?

Cell Number Format And Display - 2003

Dec 2, 2009

I enter in numbers, eg: 1, 2, 10, 24, 100, 1000 in a consecqutive cell range
They display as: 0.01, 0.02, 0.1, 0.24, 1, 10. Default cell format is general. If I change cell format to Number (with default display of 2 decimal points) it displays: 0.01, 0.02, 0.10, 0.24, 1.00, 10.00. If I also specify no decimal points, it displays: 0,0,0,0,1,10

The only way I can get the numbers I enter to display (and store) as 1,2,10,24, 100, 1000 is to change cell format to text and THEN retype th numbers into the cells. But, then it creates the green error comment in top left of each cell.

Evaluate Cell Based On Number Format VBA

Nov 2, 2011

I'm trying to insert a random number into the unprotected cells on a worksheet depending on the type of number formatting in the cell. There are 4 basic cases:

Number formatted as percentNumber Formated general with no decimal placesNumber formatted general with two decimal placesNumber formatted in thousands

The code below only contains three criteria, I was trying to get that to work first....Based on this criteria I want to insert a random number of an appropriate size. Please find the vba below.

Sum randomnbr()
Dim F as String

For Each c In ActiveSheet.Range("A1:AK2500")
F = c.numberformat
If c.Locked = False And IsNumeric(c.Value) = True And c.EntireRow.Hidden = False And c.EntireColumn.Hidden = False Then
If F Like "*#,##0*" Then
c.Value = Round(Rnd, 0) * 1000000
If F Like "*%*" Then
c.Value = Round(Rnd, 2)
Else: c.Value = Round(Rnd, 2) * 1000
End If

Format Cell To Display Number With X Added 0s

Is it possible to format a cell so that it displays 6x 0's after the number?

I.e. If cell A1 contains the number 14, id like it to display 14000000

However, that 14 million is a monetary value, so I would want it to also display $ , & .

If I change the number the following week to 21, it automatically becomes $21,000,000.00

Ive tried formatting it as a custom, but that only seems to had 6x 0's before the number

Number Format Changing Calculated Cell Value

May 20, 2014

I've created a model starting from on another person's workbook, and I'm seeing an issue I haven't seen before.

For instance,

A1 = 10
A2 = 1.5
A3 = A1 * A2 = 15 (all good, so far)

If I change the number of A2 to 0 decimals places, the value shown will be 2 (which is correct, of course), but the value of A3 becomes 20. I would like for this to stay at 15 because the correct value of A2 is 1.5, not the rounded value of 2.

Cell Format For Partial Repeating Number

Sep 19, 2006

I have an excel sheet that we need to type in an account number it always starts with 8774100 then has 9 more numbers. If I leave it on number formating it always changes the last number to 0 so I format the cell as TEXT. Anyway is there a way to get the 8774100 to automatically go in and only have to type the last 9 numbers? I know I can copy paste but then I have to double click or make sure I enter the last 9 numbers at the end or use the top entry. The data entry people just want to hit enter and go from line to line fast. In the past I just divided the cell into 2 cells and made the 8774100 in column A and columb B was the ending 9 numbers. But they need to be in the same cell.

Cell Number Format Based On Another Cells Value

Oct 21, 2007

If Cell A1 in my spreadsheet is 1, then cell A2 should appear formatted as a percentage. So if a user enters 9000 into cell A2, it should appear as 9000%. If Cell A1 in my spreadsheet is 2, then cell A2 should appear as a comma-formatted whole number. So if a user enters 9000 into cell A2, it should appear as 9,000. Conditional formatting doesn't appear to let me do this.

Conditionally Change Number Format Based On Another Cell's Value

Dec 1, 2009

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:

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.
