# Sort Mixture Of Numbers And Text Using Numbers And Decimals

Nov 13, 2013
I am looking for a VBA to sort rows which include actual numbers and text representing decomposed CTQs (or procedures in IT development)

Code:

Col A Col B

1Billing Accuracy

2Billing Time

3Credit Check Accuracy

4Credit Check Time

2.1Bill preparation

[Code]....

This is the order in which the data is copied and saved from worksheets in which they are developed. Note that 3 rows (8.1.2.1 through 8.1.2.3) 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.

I am trying to sort some data which contains numbers and letters and can't seem to find out how to personalise the sorting function on excel. Is it possible to sort cell with a mixture of letters and numbers?

Here is a link to a file to show how far I have got! [URL] .......

I have a list in rows where I have a ranking formula =COUNT($G$5:$G$81)-(RANK(G5,$G$5:$G$81)+ COUNTIF($G$5:G5,G5)-1)+1 When I sort the rank, ascending. All of the unique numbers sort ascending, but the non-unique numbers sort descending

ex) 1.751

2.52

3.753

418

417

416

I have a column of data that contains alphanumeric ID codes, some of which contain no alpha characters (i.e., Excel treats them as numbers). When I do a data sort, Excel puts all the purely numeric codes first, then the alphanumeric codes. I want to sort the numbers among the alpha codes.

Example Excel sort order:

06090

10400

28198

34078

43321

0BKV9

1C7K4

2P776

3BTW3

4U744

Desired sort order:

06090

0BKV9

10400

1C7K4

28198

2P776

34078

3BTW3

43321

4U744

I know there's a way to do this, but I've spent half an hour looking and can't find the answer. And no, manually editing each numeric entry with an apostrophe is not an option.

I've got data in a table that has am induvidual "job number" assigned to each row, but this job number could have a variation such as 1000A 1000B 1000C but they may not necessarily be one after the other in the table (other job numbers may appear in between) so i need a to macro to remove all job numbers lets say that start with 1000 and paste them and the end of the table. so i end up with consecutive numbers. Can this be done? I've played around with the find funciton to loop through the column and find all relating job numbers then cut the entire row but cant quite seem to get it to work

How can you sort item numbers, targeting only the numbers in the mock up file?

Example:

item number: GW14SO0000003

item company: GW

item location: 14SO

item counter: 0000003

How can I only sort the item by the last 7 digits "0000003"

In a spreadsheet I have a text column with entries such as:

2012

10 Times

10.5 Times

101 Times

25 Times

A Pure Text Entry

When I sort by this column I expect to get:

10 Times

10.5 Times

101 Times

2012

25 Times

A Pure Text Entry

Instead I get the 1st order. Why? I've selected 'Sort numbers stored as text' separately so it shouldn't be treating 2012 as a number. Besides I've checked & the cell formatting is Text.

A spreadsheet created by exporting from QuickBooks as a .IIF file is opened in Excel 2003.

A macro multiplies a cell value and returns 1.77999997138977 rather than 1.78. The 1.78 is required for importing back into Quickbooks.

Part of the code is: ...

I would like to create a formula that will sort the numbers in column B, there are also equal numbers in this column

The difficult part is that there is text in column A, and is linked to the numbers

So if numbers are sorted the names should be sorted in the same way as well.

I have a data set that shows numbers for categories over time. I would like to add the data label to the numeric value and then sort the data by the original number. Is this possible?

Here's an example

A 1 2 3 4

B 5 7 4 1

C 8 0 2 1

D 3 4 9 5

I would like each column sorted independently based on the data in that column, but I want the results to have the label from column 1 concatenated with the value in the other columns such as this:

A1 C0 C2 B1

D3 A2 A3 C1

B5 D4 B4 A4

C8 B7 D9 D5

Each column is sorted by the numeric value, but has the name label from column 1 attached to it.

I have a weird problem with Excel. It recognises all numbers as numbers but excluding the number 1. It is only recognised as text as well as a decimals, for example 3.4. So every time I try and add these values up it completely ignores 1 and decimals.

Have I modified a setting?

I want to convert the number in a cell, G7, from a whole number into a decimal and then divide that decimal into a whole number in cell E7 and give me the quotient in cell E8.

ie:312 = 6.0

286 = 5.5

260 = 5.0

234 = 4.5

208 = 4.0

182 = 3.5

156 = 3.0

130 = 2.5

104 = 2.0

78 = 1.5

52 = 1.0

Could this also be done with the entire range of numbers from 312 to 52 and giving decimals of 6.0, 5.9, 5.8 etc.

I received a complaint from one of my colleague that he is facing sudden problem with Ms-Excel(2002)

The problem is When he feeds number 2 in to a cell it automatically converts in to 0.02. I tried using "Decrease decimal" and "format cells" option and even through uninstalling office and reinstalling a different version but the problem still continues.

I have received an excel file from an external source. Every time I change a number in a cell it reverts to a 2 decimal number. eg. I type in 8710 and it converts the value to 87.10. I have looked at the number formats, cleared the numbers format but I keep getting the same result. I have also e-mailed the file to someone else and everything is ok on their computer. Is there a property in the excel program that I need to change?

I 'm not sure why my custom function "minimize" is not working... I tried to do this with one of excels built in functions and would prefer a solution that way, but had to go the VBA route in the mean time. x and theta are paired together and I'm trying to reduce a select number of values x by their corresponding ratio.s It's corresponding ratio is determined by what degree value theta corresponds to. I wanted to do an if statement, but got confused...

=if((B2>=$J2)*(B2<$J3)) , A2*K2 , if((B2>=$J3)*(B2<$J4) , A2*$K3 , if((B3>=$J4)*(B3<$J5) , A3*$K4, .... etc. etc. etc........................

I use a worksheet full of formulas to know what divisors a number have, but i need to see what numbers have no decimals in about 500-1000 cells. Is there a formula whitch computer can use to see if it shows a number or not (if a number have or dont have decimals)?

I've got a spreadsheet that's basically a large list of numbers, both whole and decimal. For example, let's say this is in cells A1-A5:

4

0.65

1.34

3

8.2

Is there a formula to get rid of all of the whole numbers but leave the decimals? (What I mean by that is I don't need 4 or 3 as they're whole, but I need the decimals to be left alone).

I know it's probably a really awkward question but I have over 2,000 lines to go through, it will take a long time to do manually.

Perhaps if it's not possible to a formula to delete entries, maybe just make all whole numbers say something like "NO", so that I can sort the column in A-Z order and delete all of the 'NO's quickly by highlighting them all together.

I need a cell to restrict the input:

-Only numbers are allowed.

-No date posible.

-Any amount of decimals (they must all be shown in the cell).

I tried using the data validation and using the IsNumber() to restrict any non numeral input. The problem with this approach is that if the user enters a date; it apprears as a date format (eg: "5.May"). I'm using an european excel, where the decimal separator is a comma instead of a point; so if a user accidentaly types "5.5" instead of "5,5"; the cell will show "5.May".

I also tried the cell format/number/number format. The problem in here is that I dont know how many decimal positions will the input number have; and I need them all to be shown.

I'm using excel 2003 and have a problem regarding some code.

Dit(a, b) = "=" & Hit(a, (d - 12 - e) + f) & "/" & (Pro & ".NrE.sol")

Where "Hit(a, (d - 12 - e) + f)" can be numbers with decimals.

When I run the code the result is nothing, unless the number is a number without decimals.

If I use just "Dit(a, b) = Hit(a, (d - 12 - e) + f)" it shows the right number.

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 ID column of the attached excel file whenever I convert the numbers stored as text to numbers it results in a weird transformation.

e.g. an ID of 480610141001 becomes 4.8061E+11. When I do the same process in the name column, which has similar numbers, it will give the correct result following the same process.

I have a text string in cell A1 as below:

repairs booked in Dec,11 (INR 37k)

training fees Dec,11 (INR 42k)test Fee Reimb for 03 emp Dec,11 (INR 56k)

skill fees booked in Jan,12 INR 52k

Note: (INR 37K) means negative number i.e. -37

Now my task is to manually total the above amounts in calculator, i.e.

-37-42-56+52+8+250+52+272+30+21 = =550

like this there are 100s of cells, could derive a formula for this task.
