Matching Negatives And Positives Once

Apr 30, 2009

I'm trying (with little success) to match some negatives and positives, but the formulas that I found on line keep on picking up all matches (just like a VLOOKUP formula)


The formula would match the -23 with the 2 positive 23s. This formula goes in Column O

Percentage Formula With Negatives

Jan 28, 2009

I have a question regarding calculating percentage differences, here is how our formula works, but I've done a little research regarding using negative number for percentage calculations and am not sure...

For sample:

this year (TY) we had net profit of $200 million
last year (LY) we had net loss of -$32 million

our formula works kinda like this:


but if, the comparing numbers is negative should I convert that to an absolute number using ABS ? what if both numbers are negative ?

The way I understand the current formula is like this:

if B49 is blank, then insert a dash, otherwise IF B49 is 0, then 0 (since we can't divide by 0), otherwise do the formula.

Disable Automatic Negatives

Jul 19, 2006

Long Version: This should be a fairly simple question, with a solution involving unchecking a box somewhere, but I can't find it. Whenever I enter a number in parentheses (for example: "(187.13)") into a cell Excel automatically converts that number to a negative--- "(187.13)" becomes "-187.13". I've been using the apostrophe option as a workaround (i.e., '(187.13)) to store it as text instead of a number, but this is becoming a hassle because it recognizes that (187.13) is a number and alerts me with an error message of numbers being stored as text.

Short Version: Basically, I want it to stop automatically making "(187.13)" become "-187.13" but I don't know where the setting is.

Summing All Negatives Before Hitting A Positive

Aug 23, 2007

Let us say that this is a certain cash flow

Year - Cash flow
2007 - (200)
2008 - (100)
2009 - 50
2010 - 100
2011 - 200
2012 - (100)
2013 - (25)
2014 - 50
2015 - 300

For year 2007,2008,2012 and 2013, we have negative cash.

I want to compute for the investment cost, which I define to be the total accumulated cost before first positive cash. First positive cash occurs at 2009, so I want to sum 2007 and 2008, However, 2012 and 2013 also reports negative cash, so in the SUM formula, their values will be included.

How should I write the formula in order to sum all the negative cash before positive cash, disregarding all the other cash flows thereafter (be it positive or negative)?

Allow Numbers Only In UserForm TextBox But No Negatives

Jan 25, 2010

I have the following code in a user form, attached to a data field that the user should fill. This code should alert the user if he enters a negative number i.s.o. a positive (and vise versa). Due language related issues, it is quite possible that the user will enter (by mistake) a negative sign but it will be at the end (500-) and the user will not notice this mistake. For some reason, my code does not pick up on this, and does not pop up the error message. Therefore, I decided that I need to check if the value entered by the user also contains a - at the end of the string. This, I believe, will take care of the problem.

In excel, I would simply enter a formula with Mid and Len (to check if the last character is -) , but I dont know how to implement it in my code.

Sub txt_sum_BeforeUpdate(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean)
'Verify that a negative sign was added for expenses
With Me.txt_sum
Select Case cbo_act
Case "Expense",
If Me.txt_sum.Value > 0 Then
MsgBox "Number must be negative"
End If
Case "Income"
If Me.txt_sum.Value < 0 Then
MsgBox "Number must be positive"
End If
End Select
End With
End Sub

Formatting Keyboard Commands (negatives In Red With Parenthesis)

Dec 15, 2009

I use keyboard commands whenever possible. They are much quicker than the mouse.

For years I have been using [Ctrl]+[Shift]+[1] to format cells as numeric with two decimal places, 1000 separator(,) and showing negative numbers in black with a minus sign in front.

I like to see negatives in red with parenthesis.

Custom Number Format For Negatives & Include Text

This is my formula and it returns: -55 bps.

However, I want it to return (55 bps). I don't want to just add the parenthesis because in the future this formula could return a positive number. I tried to format the cell differently, but that did not work.

Find Multiple Numbers In One Column And Replace With Single Phrase In Another Column

Jan 31, 2013

I have taken over this spreadsheet for my work, and it is basically a statement in excel. What I want to do is find a list of invoice numbers in column B populated from a remittance, and then replace column F to say a specific thing depending on check number and date paying for that invoice. So if a check printed today I would have it replace column f to say paid 1/31/13 check # xxxxx. Currently I am searching for each invoice indivudually and then replacing with check number and date. There are about 200 invoices per month that I deal with, and it is a big waste of time!

For example from this

invoice #1 / reconciled (DATE)
invoice #2 / reconciled (DATE)

To this:

invoice #1 / paid (DATE) check # (xxxxx)
invoice #2 / paid (DATE) check # (xxxxx)

Replace Value From One Column On A Range Of Rows On Other Column

Aug 24, 2012

I have a table in the format below. Pin_11 in this table is CLK and Pin_12 is STRB. I want to replace Pin_11 with PIN_CLK. Basically I want to look for CLK in Column3 and record what ever is in Column1 and Column2 on the same row (base row). For every repetion of that value in column1 and column2, in the rows above and below the base row, I want to replace column 2 with PIN_<column3 value>.

See below for initial table in column 1,2,3 and final result in column 6,7,8. I have a huge file this format of data that I need to end and was wondering if there is a script or formula to do it.

Replace All Non Blanks In Column

Jun 26, 2009

I am trying to find a way to code to replace any cell that is not blank with the text "LOA", then after I replace all blanks with "Active"

The Replace blanks is easy:
Columns("K").Replace What:="", Replacement:="Active", LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, _

but before this I dont really know how to quickly replace all non blank rows. Only way I know is to loop thru all cells in the column checking for not equal to "" then replacing, but the code above for replacing blanks is elegant, and only replaces in the used data section.

Replace All Text In Full Column?

May 22, 2014

I need to replace a full column with a certain word. It needs to start at a specific cell and needs to replace the full column until it hits an empty cell. I can't do a find and replace because the words in that column are all different words.

For example:

I need it to replace all of column F starting at F2 with a specific word and it needs to keep replacing until it hits an empty cell.

Replace Values Between Two Keywords In A Column?

Jan 31, 2014

I have data in which there are important keywords within a row (e.g.,# Message: FacesSc0_1) that are 'boundary markers' for data that is relevant to me. What I want to do is to select the data in the column between two such keywords, replace them all with the same specific value, and delete the other rows.

For example a column may look like this:

# Message: FacesSc0_1
# Message: FacesSc0_2
# Message: FacesSc0_3
# Message: FacesSc0_4

I would like to replace the values in the cells between "# Message: FacesSc0_1" and "# Message: FacesSc0_1" with the value 1, delete the values between "# Message: FacesSc0_2" and "# Message: FacesSc0_3", and replace the values in the cells between "# Message: FacesSc0_3" and "# Message: FacesSc0_4" with value 2. The resulting column would be reduced to this:

# Message: FacesSc0_1
# Message: FacesSc0_2
# Message: FacesSc0_3
# Message: FacesSc0_4

Using Macro To Replace Certain Characters In Column

However, in some instances, some of the text that is separated by an underscore needs to be joined together.

So for instance I'll have;


Where I want the result to be that "good_thing" becomes "good-thing" and "perfect_thing" becomes "perfect-thing".

How can I get this done with a Macro, instead of constantly doing a Vlookup to change this instances.

Find & Replace With Column Data

May 30, 2009

I was wondering if it is possible to perform a find and replace which would replace data from another column. We have a lot of data fields of our inventory that we exported which we are trying to condense for another program.

Example: I have a description column (AV) that has [[Manufacturer]] within the description. We want to find [[Manufacturer]] and replace with our data column (DD).

This is the data that has our manufacturers name in it. We have several find and replaces to do within the description column besides the above field.

Search And Replace Text In A Column

Sep 14, 2009

I want to replace all blank cells in column A with the word "BLANK" but my problem is that I need to tell Excel to stop searching for blank cells in column A once and only once column A is equal to the last data row in the column named "Product Number". I tried this macro but, naturally, it replaces all the empty cells in the WHOLE COLUMN.

I will always have a header column in row 1. The data is below that (data will always start at row 2).

Selection.Replace What:="", Replacement:="BLANK", LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, _
How can I change this so that the find/replace macro searches all the way down equal to the last data row in the "Product Number" column?

Below are 2 examples. Example 1 is pre macro and example 2 is post macro.
