Save Number As Text In Txt Format Wo Changing The Format
Mar 1, 2007
In order to export an excel table into another program I first need to save the excel file as .txt. The .txt file can then be imported by the other program.
First I however need to make excel understand that the value should be a text and not a value. I therefore format the number as text (0000150235) by adding "0000150235". After saving the file as .txt the format changes from "0000150235" to """0000150235""". I do however need the format in the .txt file to be "0000150235". Can anyone tell me how I can save "0000150235" as .txt and get the value "0000150235" in the .txt file.
I'll get straight to the point: How can I change this text format from 474556788 to 0-47455678-8 (dash added after 0 and before the last number). I need to apply this to around 5000 rows (can't do that manualy). I want it to be int his format:
474556788 to 047-455678-8
Tks Auto Merged Post;474556788 to 047-455678-8 (This is the wanted format)
I am having trouble getting Excel 2007 on my work computer to save as .xlsx by default.
I have opened the Office Button > Excel Options > Save > Save files in this format and selected "Excel Workbook (*.xlsx)," and if I save as before closing Excel then it works perfect and saves the file as .xlsx. However if I close Excel, re-open it later and save a new file the default "Save as type:" is "Excel 97-2003 Workbook (*.xls)" and if I open the save options again the "Save files in this format" option is reverted back to "Excel 97-2003 Workbook (*.xls)."
I have finally overcome the [Compatibility Mode] issue by saving a file named "Book.xltx" (not "Book1.xltx") in the two default locations "C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOffice12XLSTART" and "D:Documents and SettingsusernameApplication DataMicrosoftExcelXLSTART" (we use the D: drive at work for personal files). I thought this would solve the save as issue but it hasn't. I have also changed the "Save files in this format" before saving the .xltx files in the locations to apply the settings to those specific files but that hasn't worked.
It is on my work computer so I am limited in what settings I can change because they have them pretty well locked down.
Please take a look at the attached spreadsheet. in the ODDS column D, after download the some of the data has been changed from say 100-1 to a series of numbers how do i change them back i would also like to show the odds is they were 100-1 as just 100 and say if the odds were 13/2 then i want to show 7.5 basically i want th first number divided by the second.
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:
Code: 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.
Currently we do a lot of report crunching using Crystal Reports. We will then dump the data into an Excel sheet to run varying pivot tables or databases off of.
Often we will have a field that the formatting will not match up to anything in Excel. You can change the cell to Text, General etc. The main problem associated with this is running VLOOKUPs. The item we type in will not match up to the data imported from Crystal. We have to F2, the new data before it will match up which is a pain considering there can be anywhere from 30-1000 rows.
I'm trying to solve this problem in 2 ways. First can anyone tell me an easier way to do handle this? Second, after trying many other things I thought about a macro that would automate the F2 process.
This should be pretty simple but I don't know how to do it. When I run the macro recorder, it doesnt record the change. I just want to change the number format of the chart labels from currency to a normal number and visa-versa. Why doesnt this work?
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.
I would like to change the number format of a cell in function of the value of another cell. For example, if A1=1, then I would like the cell A2 to be displayed as a percentage. If A1=2, then would like the cell A2 to be displayed as a number.
I have a Sheet ( Named "Summary" for Example ) of about 4,000 Rows that has a LOT of Conditional Formatting.
I Added Another 100 Rows this Morning and when I Tried Saving it a Message Saying that Not All the Formatting for the New Data that had Been Added had Been Saved. Is there a Macro or Something I can Run that will Make the Conditionally Formatted Cells Stay the Colour that they are but Delete the Conditional Formatting Part of it Achieved Using "Format" & "Conditional Format" from the Menu Please.
Ideally I would like to be Able to Enter the Number of Rows ( From Row ? to Row ? ) that I want this to Apply to.
I have a long list of dates that are fomatted as 3-12-13 that I want to format under custom date as d-mmm-yy : 12-Mar-13. I tried to do this but it does not change. I tried to change it to a number and that didn't work either.
The following block of code is evaluating the term in the array, if it exists and the value in col. M is a non integer, (which what I am testing for are fractions) then format the cell to a fraction number format. That is ok, except it is changing the numberformat on text terms. I want it only to change the numberformat on numeric values. I added the function Isnumeric to this line:
Isnumeric(cells(i, "M").value) Int(cells(i, "M").value) which I thought would only evaluate numeric cells only, but this was unsuccessful.
Original Code: Unedited.
For i = 4 To LRowf For Each Item In Array("HAT", "FTWR", "BOOT", "BOOTG", "BOOTY", "HWRISR", "HWBLTS") On Error Resume Next If (Cells(i, "F").Value = Item Or Cells(i, "G").Value = Item) And _ Cells(i, "M").Value Int(Cells(i, "M").Value) Then Cells(i, "M").NumberFormat = "# ?/?" On Error GoTo 0 Exit For 'End If End If
I have a procedure that allows me to view and make changes to data in a table. I list the current values for the item in one column and use simple formula to copy that value to another column where if there are changes that need to be made, the formula is simply overwritten. The Macro is then selected using a command button and the formulas are all overwritten using copy/paste values to keep from writing out the formula to the data table. These values are then all written back to the data table, current values are overwritten with whatever is in the update column, new data or old data.
I have one cell out of 48 that has decided to march to the tune of a different drummer. The format changes from General to Text and the formula written from the macro is what shows up in the cell instead of the value of the formula. Never a big disciplinarian, I have to wonder if I have been too lenient on the cell and this defiance is the price I have to pay.
The sheet is protected only allowing entry into the cells available for update.
Here is the bit of code that affects this cell (starting from a format of General:
What I am looking to do is create a Dos.bat file to be run in the middle of the night that opens Excel. From there I will need Excel to open a .txt file from a specific folder, format the file, then re-save as an .xls file.
Each of the .txt files in the specific folder is named like the following: BCKLOG_062807 BCKLOG_062707
and a new file is being generated to the folder each night (with the new date in the filename).
Is there a way I can use the macro to loop through only the new files being placed in the folder, since the old files will already have their .xls counterpart saved ???
If this is not a clear enough description, please let me know and I will attempt to explain better.
One of the reports I run provides me information on lengths of time. Such a field displays as |0:09:16| indicating 9 minutes and 16 seconds. However, when the report generates the excel spreadsheet it saves these cells in date/time format ([h]:mm:ss). If I were to convert this field to the number format (so I can manipulate and graph it) it displays as such |0.00643460648148148| Ideally I would be able to have the data in the field stored as |556| (556 seconds, or 9 minutes 16 seconds). I have thousands of fields that I need to manipulate where the data is stored in this format and I can not figure out how to fix it.
I have an Excel 2010 spreadsheet where the default number format keeps switching to the date format. I keep switching it back and it'll stay as a number format for a time, but then it'll switch back. This is also the case for any new worksheets in that one spreadsheet.
This only happens with this one file - everything else behaves according to my regional settings or to how the file had been previously formatted.
I have a problem that when I try to convert text to number and format the number without 2 decimal places as seen on the link I have given below, Instead of 1607.947, I get 1607947. I have Excel 2010 loaded. The details are in below picture.
I have a data set which is in a date format of MM/DD/YY. I have converted it to YYYYMMDD. I now need to copy and permanently past the values so that the value within the cell always reads to result of the date in the format of YYYYMMDD.
Example: -current = 07/01/08 -new format = 20080701 (cell still reads 07/01/08) -would like the cell to read 20080701
My main goal is to bring this into Access and use this dataset with another data set, which uses the YYYYMMDD format.
I can't seem to make user-defined format that puts a text in front of a number and/or a text.
Let's say I have A1: 13, A2: texttext A3: text7 and I want to format a lot of cells to "Ilike 13" / "Ilike texttext" / "Ilike text7"... ie add the same text in the front of the cell, no matter what the content is.
I did manage it seperately, with "texttext" @ for text and "texttext" # for numbers, but what's the general one?
I have an excel sheet full of dates in text format and want to convert them into regular format. For instance, one of the dates listed is in text as "60801". I'd like it to show in regular date format of mm/dd/yyyy, so that 60801 becomes 8/1/2006.
The included, small database is formatted as text. It is a text feed from an outside source. I simply want to format the cells into either numbers or general format but not text... seems simple, and it should be, but the only way I can get this done is to go to each cell and access the formula bar and re-enter the number by pressing Enter.
I used to get data from a database (CorVu & MIMS) in this format "0122458/001". Due to changes in those Databases I now get the data as 2 columns " 0122458" and "1" .What I need to do is somehow get this back to the old format including the leading zeros.
I have an excel file that is used to create a large text file. This is all done manually so I wrote some code to create the file automatically. I have everything working except that I am losing some info. The info is zeros after the decimal point. Almost all of the cells are formatted as numbers with 3 decimal places. It is common to have values of 0.000 that end up just 0 when they are written to the text file. Is there a way to keep the formatting (all decimal places)? Here is an example of code that I am using to write data directly from a cell to the file.
