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 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 am looking for a VBA to sort rows which include actual numbers and text representing decomposed CTQs (or procedures in IT development)
Col A Col B 1Billing Accuracy 2Billing Time 3Credit Check Accuracy 4Credit Check Time 2.1Bill preparation
This is the order in which the data is copied and saved from worksheets in which they are developed. Note that 3 rows (126.96.36.199 through 188.8.131.52) 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 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
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.
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
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 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?
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'm try to get the pos. placing in a auto sorted table to remain in place i.e. 1st next to the top position. 2nd next tothe next position and so on down. but it keeps getting it wrong! I've tried amending the macro serval times but it makes things worse! Sorry can't attach the file, too big for this forum!!!!
Column 3 is just a ranking from 1-30. So I select all the data in columns 1 and 2 and hit sort from largest to smallest and it looks like excel computes, but nothing changes and it doesn't sort from largest to smallest? A
I have a filter on the Qty column but when I sort Z -A or A - Z it does not work. I have tried formatting as number but no success, I have never seen this before, why the sort wont work? I am using Excel 2010 in Win 7
