When I use the SUMIF(S) function and a criteria range that has numbers stored as text (eg: '394) the unequal operator (<>) doesn't work.
=SUMIFS(B:B,C:C,"<>493") doesn't work
I'm able to get the salary of employee 493 by using "493" instead of "<>493", but it seems that with the unequal operator Excel starts treating this ID as number. The only work-around I found so far is to use a wildcard e.g. "<>*493" or "<>493*". Excel then treats it as text again, but this is dirty workaround. What happens if an employee with an ID e.g. 1493 shows up!?
"<>'493" or something doesn't work unfortuantely..
I was using SUMIFS on a large amount of data, but wasn't getting back the exact sum that I needed.
It turns out that I had cells with values similar to the following
Code: 000123 0123 Basically, text fields with the same numerical values, except for the number of leading zeros. Due to the nature of the table, the number of leading zeros is important.When I did SUMIFS, it counted the sum of the two values together. For example with the following: Item Batch Qty
ABC 123 1
It appears that even if a numeric value is stored as text, SUMIFS treats it like a number.
I am using an ODBC database connection to input data into an excel file. When I input the data excel stores the numeric data as text and puts a ' in front of the number. There is an exclamation mark beside the cell which allows me to convert the data back to numeric format. I need excel to do this conversion for me automatically when new data is added to the file.
There is probably a really easy answer to this question but I cannot seem to figure it out. I need to calculate the sum of pages faxed on a fax report at my office on an excel spreadsheet which is downloaded from our server. It appears the file is not meant to be used in excel but it downloads as an "*.xls" file anyway. When I open the file I receive this message:
"The file you are trying to open, 'FaxCetailReport.xls', is in a different format then specified by the file extension. Verify that the file is not corrupted and is from a trusted source before opening the file. Do you want to open the file now?"
The file is comnig from a trusted source so I select "Yes" and it opens just fine. There are just over 50 rows of info, one of them being the number of pages. In a blank cell I enter "=SUM(select rows)" and the result is a "0". I have converted the cells to the "number" format, no change. When I right click on the cells and select format, the protection tab on the right has the check box "Locked" checked and unchecking it does nothing, it is checked as soon as you go back in to the protection tab.
The only way around this is to manually retype the numbers in a cell next to the pages column, which is ok for 50 numbers, but I have some sheets where there is over 1,000 entries.
I have the following macro that I use to convert numbers stored as text to text. For some reason, if I try to use it twice in a row, it won't work, I get an error that says "application-defined or object-defined error" and highlights this part of the Cells.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell).Offset(1, 1).Copy
I have a data table on worksheet "Data" which has 2 dates (start and end) stored in columns in yyyymm format: (example 201204)
I also have a row/column table which is supposed to sum up balances which match both the start date in the column, and end date in the row, so that all unique combinations of start and end dates will have their own cells.
I attached partial file so you can see what i mean. I pasted only a few combinations cause the file was to big and i wasnt able to attach it...there are 142506 combinations . But you can see what i mean. A VBA or a macro on the worksheet will do the job?
I'm trying to create a sumif or sumifs function that will add numbers from two columns. I've attached an example (semi populated as needed to get rid of some personal data so ignore the ref notes). On the Category Worksheet I'm trying to get column D to sum info from the March Worksheet. I would like the function in the Category Sheet to add Columns F and Columns H from the March Worksheet if they correspond to column A22 on the Category Worksheet i.e, the result of the data I've left on this example sheet should be $20....... sum of F = -130 + sum of H = 110
I received one excel spreadsheet office 2010 every week from one on the vendor. it has over 55000 rows. I got columns N, O, P & Q. these columns has some value which I use for my pivot tables. However the values in this columns are stores as a text. I select the little small box (information box ) appears on the right side of the cell and right click on that where I get an option to change it to number. This is working well.
However I have over 55000 rows , it takes a lot of times to change all these cells in four columns ( almost over 220,000 cells). some times more than an hours.
I have a problem with entering 12-hour time data in excel.
If I key in 3:00, Excel will recognise it as 3:00 AM. If I key in 3:00 p, Excel will recognise it as a text entry. To get Excel to recognise it as 3:00 PM, I have to use the 24-hour format. i.e. I have to type 15:00.
I have checked the Regional and Language option in the Control Panel. Everything looks fine.
Does anyone have such encounter with Excel before?
I have sent a data sheet template to my client in which they paste their data, based on this data sheet analysis will be done automatically in next sheet "Summary".
Whenever they paste product code, vlookup is not working since the product code contains few are numeric (shows: "Number Stored as Text"). I advised my client to go with "Text to Column" and "Delimited" to change it as numeric. But my client feels this method is tedious one. Is there any alternate way to make that column as numeric permanently?
When I need to return numerical data with multiple criteria, I use the SUMIFS and it works fine. But when I need to return a text string, the function is not called for. What function can I use to make this happen? I've tried SUMPRODUCT, which I've had success with in the past, but it's not working this time. Maybe I'm laying it out wrong, but this is how I currently have it:
=SUMPRODUCT(column of text to be returned,((column of criteria1)=criteria1)*((column of criteria2)=criteria2))
Do I need to fix this formula or use something else?
Figuring out a SUMIF or SUMIFS formula which will clean up some weekly data. I am envisioning a SUMIF formula which looks at the client name in column A in a table and then it will search through the long list of data for all entries for that specific client on another sheet in column "A", for instance. It needs to take into consideration only the encounters which happened between the dates in the table for that client listed in column B & C. The sum will be the column next to the column with each client's name which has a procedure date in between the date criteria's from the table. I have attached an example to better illustrate.
I paste special so the user does not see this formula. However, there is that annoying notification saying it is a number stored as text. What is the universal way to switch this warning off (or to better write the macro) so this warning will not be on any version of Excel?
I have a text file with rows and columns of numbers ranging from 1-4 digits that I'd like to import/copy into Excel with each number being in its own cell. But whenever I copy/try to import, Excel splits all of the 3-4 digit numbers up into single digit numbers. The text file has 10,000+ columns (each number occupies two columns so I have half of that amount in numbers) and 300+ lines.
Is the file simply too large for Excel to handle or is there a way I can do this?

In the example above, I would like to do a vlookup in column C that matches the digits in column A to those in column F, with the output being the corresponding value in column G. I believe it involves the left function but not sure how to really use it here.
I'm working on a spreadsheet with about 400 rows and 10 columns. All the numbers in the columns are formatted as text, which doesn't allow me to use AutoSum. I have selected the cells and formatted them as number with no decimals, but AutoSum still doesn't work because the formatting hasn't changed and they're still formatted as text. I know if I double click each cell, the cell changes the format from text to number, but that will take a lot of time to change 400 cells in each of the 10 columns. What can I do to quickly reformat the cells from text to number?
I am looking for a VBA to sort rows which include actual numbers and text representing decomposed CTQs (or procedures in IT development)

This is the order in which the data is copied and saved from worksheets in which they are developed. Note that 3 rows (184.108.40.206 through 220.127.116.11) 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.
