I have a spreadsheet with information in columns a-x. In column A there are part numbers like: RH630-34, PH630-343, 6-255, 16-01, 72500, There are may combinations of just numbers, and numbers first letters second, and letter first number second.
All usually seperated by a hyphen. The entire spreadsheet will be sorted by Column A first.
I need to sort them so the order would be numbers first and combo with number letters next. finish product: 6-255, 16-01, 72500, PH630-343, RH630-34. Is this possible? I have seen other posts and suggesting putting spaces before the numbers. That seems to work but in the case of 6-138 and 6-1038 the 6-1038 is first
1) Let's say I have 3 columns (horisontal) and many rows (vertical. Each row goes together, as the first column can be text that describes a transaction. The second column will be the amount of money and the third can be something else. I know how to sort these by whichever column I want to. But the problem is every cell needs to be the same size. And I have merged 3 cells in the first column and only merged 2 cells in the last two colums. So Excel tells me I cannot merge unless each cell is the same size.
Is there a solution here? I need the 3 cells in the first column, so I have enough room to describe the transaction. And to avoid wasting space, I need to only have the other two columns be the size of two merged cells each.
Example, though with the text in another column: Picture of it
2) The other problem is that I would like a cell to display the number in red if below zero, green if above zero. I cannot do this. I know where to put in the format codes, but I don't know what to write. At the same time, I need the cell to show the currency in Danish Kroner. So I need a format code that does this. Someone told me this: [Blue]dk #.##0;[Red]dk #.##0;[Green]*dk #.##0
But that doesn't work, nor if the color is in danish. What do I do?
I have a spreadsheet with 4 combo boxes and 2 cells that I need reset to a specific value when a button is clicked (the top value for the combo boxes, the function [today()] for one cell, and a specific date for the other). I figured I would put the function and the specific date in seperate hidden cells and the button would link to them, but whatever way gets the job done will work. I know I'll need to code this in VB, but as well as I know excel i've never played with basic before.
I have letter and number combination code in two collumns and they differ for 10.000 numbers:
BAM98314 BAM88314 BAM90000 BAM80000
As you can see the left code is for 10000 numbers higher. the letters are allways the same. In the event that this isn't so, if difference between codes in same row is more or less than 10000 numbers. I was thinking on making conditional formating so the cells with wrong difference would be marked red, but I do not know how to make formula for this difference.
How to translate a specific number into a specific letter related to the number itself.
I have lots of different numbers for example all going down a specific cell (These numbers I want to separate into 3 different catagories. The positive numbers I want to be calculated as the same Letter that is next to that row directly over to the left of that cell.
So if the letter
B / cell / cell / +9 / Then I want if its a positive number like +9 to answer in the formula with the same letter (B) listed to the right in the same row in a different cell of course
B / cell / cell / -6 / Then I want if its any negative number like -6 to answer in the formula as the opposite Letter of (P) listed to the right in the same row in a different cell of course
P / cell / cell / +17 / Then I want if its a positive number like +17 to answer in the formula as the same letter (P) listed to the right in the same row in a different cell of course
P / cell / cell / -3 / Then I want if its a negative number like -3 to answer in the formula as the opposite Letter of (B) listed to the right in the same row in a different cell of course
and thirdly if its a (0) zero and only (zero's) Then I want the answer to stay (0) zero.
The number can be any numbers it doesn't matter. Only distinction is that positive number of +1 and up repeat and stay the same letter that the cell on the far left is already stated.
and all the negative number of -1 amd below all reverse the letter to the opposite letter of (B to a P) or (P to a B) listed to the right in the same row in a different cell of course
and of course (0) zero would be listed as a positive number and only return a (0) zero as the result of the formula.
I have records combined with letter in column A: number is always on left and letter always on right, such as 456UI, 4689746COMPREH. How can split the combination into number in column B and letter in column C?
I'm trying to add plus 1 to a cell from another cell but it doesn't work because the number starts with a letter. I do want to keep the letter in there for a reason so removing the letter to make it work is not what I want.
The following displays a name and number as the Chart title with VBA...how do I change the code so that is it name plus letter...instead of being Group 1 , Group 2 etc..etc.. it will be Group A , Group B etc..
is there a way to make the following code return the letter of the column instead of the number? currently if the 'String' value that is in 'ColumnFind' is in column B this code returns a value of 2. i Need the 'B' for later code to work.
I need to figure out the number of occurrance of a letter in a word written in a cell. For Example i am writing "pattern" in a Excel cell. I want to know the marco/vba code that will give me the number of occurrance of each letter. The output should be:
I am inserting a formula into a cell using VBA, but the problem is that I don't know the letter value of column "K" (used in the middle of the line); instead, I know it as column number 11. Is there a simple way to convert the column number 11 to the column letter "K"?
I have a cell range that is passed as a String to a function, and within that function I need to extract only the Column letter. If it was just 1 letter it would be simple, but it may be 2, so does anybody know of a way of testing to see if the second character is a letter or a number?
I WANT TO INSERT A LETTER IN FRONT OF A NUMBERS THAT ALREADY EXIST IN CELLS IN A COLUMN. SORT OF LIKE USING "FIND & REPLACE" EXCEPT THAT I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING TO REPLACE; I JUST WANT TO INSERT A LETTER PREFIX IN FRONT OF NUMBERS.
