SQL Syntax - Defining The Format Of A Field

Apr 4, 2006

I use ADOBD.Connexion / Microsoft Jet SQL to connect to Excel tables and create a pivot cache.

I need to understand the required SQL syntax to define a field format.

Exemple:

SELECT Table1.Field1 FROM Table1

And I need Table1.Field1 to be treated as text

How can I set the format of a field in my SQL statement?

Defining Field Format For Data Import From CSV

Jul 23, 2008

on data import from CSV file. The file is formated in a sligthly strange way:

"London","182.56","12/12/2007"
"Paris","133.41","27/12/2007"

I get into problem when importing using default CSV settings as numbers and date are understood like text. I need to replace "." with "," to get to number format. Used following Range("J5:K9999").Replace What:=".", Replacement:=",", LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, _
ReplaceFormat:=False

However I get values multiplied by 100 for some reason.

Converting date format gets eeven more complicated.
So I decided I can not use standard CSV import and need to define separate data source for each raw file This is not what I wanted, since I do import many files (10 at this point in time, but it will get growing). However, I would be ready to do that if there is no other option. So I go to "Create New Data Source" and under "Connect" I get to another input box called "ODBC Text Setup" where I select "Options" to define customer format. However, after selecting source file, Excel is not able to interprate fields. Tried clicking "Guess" button, no luck there. Thought it is because fo those "" before and after field value. So, just for a sake of experiment I opened file in text editor and removed those ". Still, can not read the file. The error message says "Text file specification field separator matches decimal separator or text delimiter. Guess failed"

I am out of ideas how to get this file properly imported. Hope there is a way to do that either by defining field formats while importing (perhaps that can be done via SQL, but I am not confident with it) or writing some code to change format after importing from text to Number and Date...

If Else Syntax: Change Some Outputs Of The Macro Without Changing The Syntax

Jul 19, 2006

Im writting a macro. It works find until a certain point. When I want to change some outputs of the macro without changing the syntax, it display an error mesage while runing the macro. It says Else without If. Which is quite disturbing because the Else was not creating any problem before. Here is my macro before I changed the conditions (this one work nicely)

Sub Copy_Sheet_Beta()
Set wba = ActiveWorkbook
On Error Resume Next
If IsWorkbookOpened("Projekt.xls", "C:Documents and SettingsfrederikSkrivebordRedd Barna") Then
Workbooks("Projekt.xls").Activate 'In case open, just activate "Projekt"
Else
Workbooks.Open Filename:="C:Documents and SettingsfrederikSkrivebordRedd Barnaprojekt.xls"
End If
Set wb = Workbooks("Projekt.xls")
wb.Activate
If Not SheetExists(wba.ActiveSheet. Range("C1").Value) Then
MsgBox "overall doesn't exist!"

Automatic Time Format In Form Field?

Mar 10, 2009

How can I have a form field automatically fill some aspects of the data that's input? I've seen it before, like a phone# field automatically including the dashes.

I would like to automatically include colons in a time field. So if I were to type "081500" (or even "81500"), it would complete it as "08:15:00".

Converting A Text Format Field From M10235 To M000010235

Jul 10, 2014

I am using excel to compare data from one spreadsheet to another. However my utility is not capturing identical matches since one worksheet eliminated the leading 0s while the next worksheet includes all 0s. Our system should actually have the 0s to identify the data correctly.

Worksheet 1
M10235
Worksheet 2
M000010235

I would like to convert Worksheet 1 to show M10235 in the format M000010235 so that the number contains the prefix M followed by nine digits.

Date Format Error - General Number Field

Feb 18, 2013

I have a spreadsheet with a column full of dates

I used the formatting wizard to make all dates the format of dd/mm/yyyy but, now, when I put a date in the column it throws up a number '41313' instead of a date, even if I manually input the date in the same format as above.

Also, I have tried to turn cells back into general number fields, but this doesn't appear to be changing it back to a date format..

There are HUNDREDS of dates I might have lost if I can't get them to start showing as dates again!

User Form Field Inserts Wrong Date Format

Mar 26, 2009

I have cobbled together (borrowing from examples I have found online because I don't know VBA) a form which inserts a date into a spreadsheet.

The trouble I have is that this date field is in USA date format and I need UK.

If I enter 03/01/2009 into the form, it appears in the spreadsheet as 01/03/2009. I have formatted these cells to display the month only and because of the way it was entered, the next column displays MAR instead of JAN.

Can I validate the input value in a form?

Auto Populate Field With Date When Other Field Is Selected From Validation List

Jul 4, 2013

In the following extract, I would like to have today's date placed into Col K when an entry is made into Col J.

Entry into Col J is from a validation list of 3 options. What I desire is that when one of these options is selected ("Complete"), then I would like today's date to be written into Col K.

Currently Col K has a validation list which comprises dates from 1st of each month from July to June.

I need a fixed date as text preferably, so was thinking the VBA function "Date" on a Change Workbook Sub.

The information is currently part of a Table in Excel 2007 that has about 500 records.

In the column section I'm trying to show Total Budgeted Amount next to Total Actual Amount but on the layout it's showing the two stacked on top of each other is there some kind of hidden key that I'm missing?

Defining Name Over 255 Characters?

Feb 17, 2014

I'm trying to make a chart viewer on the first sheet of my spreadsheet and am using this website as a guideline, [URL] However instead of the 3 charts in the example, I have 12 which makes my formula for defining a name substantially longer.

By moving my charts to the same sheet and getting rid of the INDIRECT formulas, I shortened my formula to 291 characters which is too long as the limit is 255.

=IF($G$9="Sodium",$N$34,IF($G$9="Manganese",$N$35,IF($G$9="Iron",$N$36,IF($G$9="Nitrate Nitrite",$N$37,IF($G$9="Nitrite",$N$38,IF($G$9="Nitrate",$N$39,IF($G$9="PH",$N$40,
IF($G$9="Conductivity",$N$41,IF($G$9="Turbidity",$N$42,IF($G$9="Fluoride",$N$43,IF($G$9="Selenium",$N$44,$N$45)))))))))))

Is there any way to make my formula shorter? Or to reference a cell where I place the formula?

Defining A Minimum Value

Oct 7, 2008

If Average GMV (Cell A1) is less than 75% of Average BP (Cell B1), use Average GMV, however the Average GMV or Average BP can't be less than $600 million. Multiply the result by .01*1/3. Below are two equations I've created, however each of them only solves one part of the problem.

=IF(A1<0.75*B1,A1*0.01*1/3,B1*0.01*1/3)

=IF(B1<600000000,(600000000)*0.01*1/3,B1*0.01*1/3)

Essentially Average BP would be used, unless Average BP was something like $900,000,000 and Average GMV was around $650,000,000. At this point Average GMV is 72% of Average BP and above the $600,000,000 minimum.

Defining Names

Jun 16, 2009

Knowing Excel adapts its formulas upon inserting a row (i.e. a sum formula will automatically include a new row inserted in the middle of its range). Is it possible to do this with a named range. I have a pivot table that serves as a table for a vlookup, but the table sometimes changes month to month with extra accounts. I need to be able to keep the formula even though the table changes, so I figured a named range would help me out but it still doesn't accomplish what I need it to do. So basically, is there a way to make the Named Range, say AGroup (A1:C5) extend to (A1:C7) if 2 new rows are added in?

Defining Columns In A Sheet

May 21, 2014

I am starting to write a macro and first thing i Need to define is all the columns that I need in my report. I started out by defining an array and this is what I have so far.

I need that every time I run this macro it should vlookup the data from cleantxt files that are saved in my c:autofile ReportsFC Banded Summary and essentially create separate excel files for different buyer names and save those sheets to my C:Banded Summaries with the name as Bandedsummary(todays Date)_BuyerName

This is going to be the bones of it then I have to figure out how to vlookup data for all the columns and do sumifs and format it.

This is what I have so far:
Function IsInArray(stringToBeFound As String, arr As Variant) As Boolean
IsInArray = (UBound(Filter(arr, stringToBeFound)) > -1)

Defining A Variable As New Collection

Dec 7, 2008

I have a piece of code I am using to important data from a text file. The code works fine but I am having a hard time understanding how defining a Variable "As New Collection" works. I have tried to research on numerous websites dedicated to excel but had no luck finding any further information.

I have executed the code line-by-line over-and-over and believe what the "new collection" does is it creates some type of external database that is hidden within excel (that's just my guess). I have attached a sample file and a text file with dummy data if needed to see how the code is working.

Defining 1 Of 3 Possible Print Areas

Dec 5, 2009

I've got a spreadsheet that could have 1 of 3 possible print ranges:
PR1 = B2:K67
PR2 = B2:K132
PR3 = B2:K197

If there is a value greater than "0" in Cell B68, the print area would be PR2, but if there is a value greater than "0" in Cell B133, the print area would be PR3, otherwise it would be PR1.

These print ranges are such that the page break would would be below B67 and B132, but I'm concerned that I may need to set these page breaks in the Macro.

I'm not sure how to use the IF, THEN, ELSE, in the Macro to test the value of the cell and then set the print area.

Defining Dynamic Ranges

Oct 6, 2008

I'm trying to make ranges in a SumProduct formula dynamic, but getting errors #N/A. I think this is because the top two rows are headers, throwing off the range count.

Q. How do I adjust the range definition to compensate., e.g.

Range =Offset(Sheet1!$D$3,0,0,COUNT(Sheet1!$D:$D),1) where column D is numeric, and

Range = Offset(Sheet1!$T$3,0,0,Match("*",Sheet1!$T:$T,-1),1) where column T is text?

I had assumed that the offset value 3 would do this, but I suspect the functions count and match are not doing so.

Code: Defining Variables

Sep 15, 2008

I'm trying to develop a work spreadsheet template that is to be summarised every fortnight. Our fortnights here go Thurs-Thurs. So I figured I would start with a base date (thurs - Sept 4th) and then have the spreadsheet display the true fortnight ending upon loading. Ultimately this fortnight ending will be used to copy and paste the template information into a summary spreadsheet but for now I am trying to get this intial part working. It's linked to a command button and my attempt at code is below:

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Dim Base As Date
Dim Now As Date
Dim Delta As Integer
Dim No_of_Fortnights!
Dim Rounded As Integer
Dim Fract!
Dim Fort_week_end As Date

(Note the following 8 lines are not the problem, they just open the main sheet. The problem is the eights lines starting with the word 'set')

Sheets("Technical Inquiry Form").Activate
Sheets("Technical Inquiry Form").Range("b3").Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=TODAY()"
Sheets("Technical Inquiry Form").Range("b3").Select
Selection.Copy
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
:=False, Transpose:=False
Sheets("Technical Inquiry Form").Activate
