Fix Random Numbers Generated With RAND
Is there a way to control the number generation. I would like to be able to run different scenarios with the same set of random numbers, then regenerate the random numbers and do it again. Right now every time I do anything in the spreadsheet, I get a new set of numbers.
Rand() Function In Another Function
I want to call on the existing rand() function as a part of the function i've written, however I'm getting an error saying sub/function not defined when I go to compile. How do I have to define rand() so that vba knows that I want the use the existing function?
Cleaning Up Phone Numbers With VBA
I am using VBA to enter customer information into a Microsoft SQL database. I have an excel sheet with thousands of customers listed. I will be using a While loop to process each line of the sheet. Part of the While loop needs to make any format changes necessary before the data moves over to the DB. So here is the issue:
How do I turn the following phone numbers:
276 623 4254
410 612 1100 Rob
(413) 786-1636 Cindy
304) 842-5491 Sherry
Into a uniform layout? I would prefer ###-###-####
Each of the numbers above is an example from the list I have. There may be more variations (I have over 20 seperate lists to process, with over 10000 customers per list)
I imagine I need some process that will remove all character except numbers and then break the numbers up to add the hyphens back in at the appropriate places.
Find And Replace Phone Numbers
I have a bunch of phone numbers that I'm trying to reformat.
Say I wanted to replace any phone number like this: 1##########
With this: ##########
Keeping the numbers intact, just getting rid of the 1 in front of them. Can't figure it out for the life of me.
Columns To Phone Numbers Format
Just got an answer to my phone number problem of converting two columns of numbers
to a single columns with the form XXX-XXXXXXX. Used =A1 & "-" & B1.
Works perfectly one one spread sheet and not at all in another.
When I enter the formula and hit return, instead of the correct result, all I get is the formula.
The format of the columns is the same on both spread sheets.
Using Vlookup To Find Phone Numbers Online
How can I create a vlookup function to automatically retrieve phone numbers off switchboard.com using my current mailing list?
I have a list of more than 4,000 of my customers. I want to ad in phone numbers automatically. I currently have the first and last name in one column. The address, city, state and zip are all each in their own column.
I have never use vlookup before, nor have I ever used excel other than for data entry. What is the easiest and most efficient way to do this?
I searched this site and seen vlookup mentioned for this type of automatic data entry. There may be another way or method I am not aware of.
Finding Country Based On Phone Numbers
I have a list of mobile phone numbers from various countries. However, I do not know which country each entry is from. Ideally I would like to have a macro that looks at each number, compares to a global list of PSTN structure to determine which part of the phone number is the country code (generally the first 1-3 digits), and then put the country in a separate column.
I am certain all numbers are formatted correctly, so it is only a matter of finding out which part is the country code and putting a value for the country.
Formula Or Macro To Fix Phone Numbers
I came up with this formula trying to fix phone number but it’s not working properly
=TEXT(LEFT(SUBSTITUTE(a1, "-", "") & "00##", 10), "###-###-00##")
So basically I need a formula or macro that will fix the phone number for me.
Here is an example
78512312 it should be like this 785-123-0012
785123123 it should be like this 785-123-0123. So if Len is 8 numbers long then insert two zeros counting from right to left. So if Len is 9 numbers long then insert one zeros counting from right to left.

Count Valid Phone Numbers And Email Addresses
I am looking for a formula to count the number of valid mobile phone numbers in a list and the number of valid email address in another list, 2 different formulas.
The mobile phone number formula would count the number of indervidual mobile phone numbers in a list that contain 077 and 078 and 079.
The email formula would count the number of indervidual email addresses in a list that contain ...........@..........dot com or .............@............dot co dot uk
Both lists may contain random junk text, like in the email list some one may have entered words like 'no email address' etc.

Reference Function: Pickup Groups And Members Of Each Group From A Phone System
I have the following worksheet, which lists the pickup groups and members of each group from a phone system. Another worksheet lists all the exts and I want to have some sort of VLOOKUP, MATCH function that will look at the ext number and come back with the pickup group number.
I've attached a copy of the spreadsheet to show you what I'm talking about. So looking at the spreadsheet if I have an ext number of 8001 I want to return the value of 2 as ext 8001 is a member of pickup group 2. Also of an ext is not a member of any group, then I want to return nothing.

I've been using excel for quite sometime but have never tried the macro system or posting VBA code so I'm wanting to get my feet wet with a little project.
I want to make a button on a sheet that when pressed generates a random number between 3 and 18, ideally it would make a new set of random numbers if pressed again.
Generate Random Numbers From A Frequency List
I have a frequency list (frequency per year) resulted from previous calculation. What I want is to generate random number as many as the frequency in the specified year, so that every year I will get the same amount of random numbers as the frequency. It is kind of the opposite of FREQUENCY function (but with random numbers involved). I need to use the result for further calculation.

Function That Will Generate A Price Based On Three Fields
I'm a graphic designer and i'm trying to build a spreadsheet that will help me in doing my accounts.
Ok, so i'm trying to set up a function that will generate a price based on three fields:
Lamination:YES or NO
Duplex: YES or NO
Stock: Around 14 different stock options.
I had it working using a nested IF but I ran out of the 7.
I then tried using CONCATENATE using "&" to seperate but excel said the formula was too long.
I need to use a function that is not onyl random, but only uses a person's name on a list once. On a list of ten people, RANDBETWEEN picked the same person three times in ten key strikes. How can I use RANDBETWEEN but also make sure ever person's name gets picked ONLY once? This is for a drawing for secret santa.
Changing Values With = RAND()?
When I use the =RAND() function, everytime I do anything within my spreadsheet the number changes. Is there a way to get that number to change after(for example) 10 refreshes of my spreadsheet instead of every single time I do something to it?
Rand Pick From 4 Pools
I have been using the RAND and Vlookup functions for the following without success.
I have 4 numeric Pools or Groups;
1. A1:A18 (1-18)
2. B1:B18 (19-36)
3. C1:C17 (37-53)
4. D1:D17 (54-70)
I also have E1:E20 (20 existing Numbers from 1-70)
I want Excel to select at random a total of 20 numbers
and place them in F1:F20.
I will specify a quantity from each of the 4 groups.
In cell A20 I enter 4 to obtain 4 numbers from grp 1,
In cell B20 I enter 6 to obtain 6 numbers from grp 2,
In cell C20 I enter 8 to obtain 8 numbers from grp 3,
In cell D20 I enter 2 to obtain 4 numbers from grp 4,
However there must not be any duplicates between
E1:E20 and F1:F20!
Generate Random Numbers In Random Cells
I am working on a Random Cycle Count Generator that provides random SKU#s based on 3 separate columns of SKU listings. The user clicks a button to generate the SKU#s to cycle count for that day. What I would like to see is a date stamp in the columns next(B,D,F) to the referenced SKU listing(A,C,E) based on which SKU#s are generated. This will let me see the last date that the SKU was generated. I would also like it to automatically save after generating.
Function To Test For Whole Numbers
I have a resolution calculator that I am working on.
You put your original resolution in say 1440x1080
then below you put in any one of the new target resolutions.
Place 720 in the height and you get a message that says
"960 is your new matching Width resolution"
Id like to follow up on that with an if statment that test to see if the cell is blank if it is then null, if not then test 960 in this case to see if 960/16 = a non decimal number.
So in the cell to the right of that sentence it would return the result
"and 960 is 16 pixel safe" something like that.
I can probably figure out how I will handled the cell arrangement, numbers, and text I just for now need to find a way to do a test on whole numbers and return a text value (my guess is an if statement)
Spell Numbers Function
I had entered a spellnumber function in Excel 2007 and it was working fine but then all the sudden it disappeared. I would prefer a function to convert numbers to text without doing visual basic code.
Can You Use MAX Function On Numbers/text?
I am trying to use the "MAX" function to find the max temp on a particular day in a week from 7 separate sheets. The problem I have is one particular company autopopulates their temperature block with the temp and degree symbol: 46°F instead of just 46. The max function is thrown off it appears by the symbol and letter. Is there a way to get the max function to only look at the numbers? I'm also open to the option of autoconverting each temp to a number on the master sheet and letting the "MAX" function search through those if that's possible.
Extracting Phone # And Name

Phone Toll Formulas
I had two formulas for working with phone tolls. I moved offices a while back and can not find the disk I burned them to, and I cant remember them.
One of the formulas was like this: If the cell contains and or equals target number than put “incoming” (and/or if not than “outgoing”) in this (a different) cell.
I also had a formula that if the phone numbers came in 3 columns i.e. area code in one column, prefix in a second column and the last four digits in a third column, would combine all the numbers in one cell.
Phone Number Formatting
I have a cell that NEEDS to be of the following format:
I have set this up under formatting, custom... and when I type a number like this ...
01304999999 I get the result 01304 999999 PERFECT!
Unfortunately if I type this....
01304 999 999 I get this result 01304 999 999 which ain't good as it mucks up my Macro, whih incidentally is this...
appWD.ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("PMTelephone").Range = Format(strPMTelephone, "0#### ######")
4 Column Phone List
I have just created a phone list of about 70 lines on a single A4 sheet
A B C D
Name No Name No
One of the PA's now wants to know if she deletes a Name and No from say column A & B
can I make it all reconfigure to eliminate the blank spce.
So basically names fill column A & B first then overflow onto Columns C & D.
I think a macro is the only way to go here but the PA isn't keen.
