Stop Auto Format To Scientific Notation

Dec 29, 2008

I run a macro that imports a table from web page:

[url]

I import only the table with no formatting.

Excel tries to be helpful, and formats some of the cells in scientific notation.

I have tried to format the column to the "Text" format prior to the import with

Columns(2).NumberFormat = "@"

This does not work. If you import the table you can see that rows 1405, 1406, 1407, 1408 all have the same scientific notation value. Their true values should be 0E0, 0E4, 0E8, 0E9 respectively.

There are quite a few other instances in the column when a text value has "E" for the second character that Excel will format on its own.

Stop Scientific Format For Large Numbers

Nov 21, 2006

Im importing figures into column G of my worksheet, and I need a code so it automatically adds a "0" to the start of each row in column G plus format it.

For example, im pasting in 970702090341 but its showing as 9.70702E+11.

Once I format the cell to 'number' and 0 decimal places it looks fine, but want to save the hassle of doing it each time. Plus I need a zero at the start.

Is there a code possible for this?

Data Converted To Scientific Notation

Nov 3, 2008

I work for a company that exports data from a website into Excel.

So here's my problem:

The data is usually Part Numbers using numbers and letters. When a Part Number is, for example, 248E12 we have this reaccurring issue. Importing it into Excel automatically converts it to scientific notation (ie. 248E+12 or 2.48E+14 to be exact). "Format Cell" doesn't convert it back because it was auto-converted when "exported". I need a way of fixing this problem without going line by line and doing the math to convert it myself.

I don't have time for that. Some of my files have thousands of lines.

Automatically Formatted As Scientific Notation

I'm trying to filter a long list to look for specific employee numbers. The employee numbers are so long that they have to be formatted as text or they are automatically formatted as scientific notation (they are 18 digits long). For some reason this is causing the filter not to work properly.

Conversion Of Scientific Notation To Text Not Working

Mar 13, 2013

I have a large file with account numbers in Number format. Before I can import the data into a database the account numbers need to be converted to Text. I use Text(A1,0) to do this in a large file. The data then gets copied into a new Import file. When the data gets copied the account cell reverts back to scientific notation for the long account strings. The import file account column is formated for Text. The only fix is to then double click on each account that is in scientific notation to convert it back to text.

Is there another text formula I can use?

Stop Now Function Auto Updating When New Row Added

Oct 29, 2008

I have fought with this for 2 days and I am trying to have a worksheet cell update the date and time if the cell it is referencing (B3 see below)

Here is the formula I am using however it updates every time a new row is added to the worksheet. So the Date/Time stamp on each row is always updated to NOW() everytime.

=IF(ISNA(B3),"0/0/00 00:00",NOW())

I would like to have a Date/Time stamp stay as is once that row has been added. Is there anyway to stop the field from updating once the date and time have been set?

Stop/Prevent Web Query Auto Formatting

Apr 23, 2009

I use a query table to import data into a workbook which works fine

With wsActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add(Connection:=sQueryString, _
Destination:=wsActiveSheet. Range("A1"))
.Name = CStr("main.html?LANG=de&search=true&searchterm=" & sIdentifier & "_1")
.PreserveFormatting = True
.BackgroundQuery = False
.RefreshStyle = xlInsertEntireRows 'xlInsertDeleteCells
.RefreshPeriod = 0
.WebSelectionType = xlSpecifiedTables
.WebTables = "9,14"
.WebPreFormattedTextToColumns = True
.WebSingleBlockTextImport = False
.WebDisableRedirections = False
.Refresh BackgroundQuery:=False
End With

One of the fields I import has a value like 100:01 or 10:01 or 01:01 or other combinations (the above ones are the most frequent ones).
Unfortunately excel always converts this field into a date and a time but this is not what I want.
Is there any way to stop excel doing this? I tried to work around it with the text property e.g. formating it to text after I imported the data and formating the entire sheet to use text before

Stop Auto-Formatting Headers In Table Upon Row Insert

Jan 3, 2013

I decided to format my data as a table so that excel will auto-fill my formulas when inserting new rows which works quite well. I have one snag though, when trying to insert a new row at the very top (i.e. inbetween the header and first row) and choosing Format As Below, it also applies Data Validation and Conditional Formatting to the header. The inserted row, however, is actually formatted fine and works well.

How do I stop this from happening, and why would Excel do this anyway (as it is effectively applying formatting to TWO rows when only one row is being inserted)?

Stop European Date Format Changing

Jan 21, 2008

I have a userform which is used to update a spreadsheet.

There are 7 textboxes which add dates to the spreadsheet. These dates are then used in formulas.

Every time a record is saved the date format changes.

Ths means that if the date is entered dd/mm/yyyy it writes mm/dd/yyyy and this is fine. When this record is next retrieved it will show mm/dd/yyyy and any new date will be dd/mm/yyyy.

Wen saved to the spreadsheet both formats change meaning the dates in the spreadsheet appear in diffrent formats messing up all formulas.

How can I stop the date format changing each time the record is saved?

How Do You Stop Changing The Date Format During Find And Replace?

Aug 26, 2009

When I remove "Release date:" from "Release date:24 December 2008," excel will automatically change the text to "24-Dec-08." Yes, I did try to format the column to "text" before using find and replace.

This wouldn't be a problem, except that half the dates are in Dutch, so only half the dates are changed, which means that I can't make all date formats in a column uniform.

Scientific Data: Timestamp

Oct 25, 2008

I am attempting to enter Timestamp data from a movie in this format:

minute:second.millisecond

When I enter a frame timestamp of 18 minutes, 42 seconds, and 5 milliseconds, excel auto formats this data to 12:18:43AM.

This is not what I want. I have attempted multiple types of cell formats in an attempt to enter this data without auto formatting. One requirement for the format is the ability to subtract two of the times for a change in time measurement. I have tried every setting under the "Time" format list, as well as custom formats, which fail to subtract.

Meaning Of Bracket Notation

Feb 9, 2007

The following code was posted in another thread:

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
Dim a, v, x, ws As Worksheet
Set ws = Sheets("Scheduled Courses")
a = ws. Range("a2", ws.[a65536].End(xlUp)).Value
With CreateObject("scripting.dictionary")
For Each v In a
If Not IsEmpty(v) And Not .exists(v) Then
.Add v, Nothing
End If
Next
x = .keys
End With
With Me.ComboBox1
.Clear ' clear the listbox content
.List = x
.ListIndex = 0 ' select the first item
End With
End Sub

How are the brackets used in the 4th line? I have not seen this notation before. Is this some kind of a shorthand for a Range("A65536") reference?

Auto-format - 2003

Dec 5, 2008

I am pasting output from SAS into a spreadsheet. The data I am pasting cannot be put into columns beforehand. When I do text-to-columns, the data are auto-formatted. This is how it looks before text-to-columns:

159 xx Char 2 2. $2. xx


This is how it is auto-formatted:

159xxChar22$2.00 xx

The loss of the period [2 to 2.] and the addition of zeros [$2. to $2.00] is a disaster because it makes my SAS code non-functional. Is there anyway to stop auto-formatting in text-to-columns? Is there a more user-friendly software besides Excel that would be better to use?

Referring To Range() Using Shortcut Notation

Sep 23, 2008

I have noticed in many of the Excel help files that the developers liked to use shortcut notation for Range reference in VBA.

For example, Range("A1:B10") would be [A1:B10].

I was doing a bit of testing with this, and was not able to make the shortcut notation work with a variable. Does the shortcut method have the capabilities to do the equivalent of Range("A1:B" & LR)?

If it does have that capability, is it just due to force of habit that we always use Range() to refer to ranges, or would there be a more in-depth reason.

Auto Filter - Data Format

Nov 14, 2006

I am having trouble with using the auto filter, and I suspect it is due to my data format.

I am importing data from an outside source (I have no control on how the data is output). The data in the column I am concerned with contains various formats, such as numbers, letters, and a combo of the two. e.g.:

12345
sample
sam123ple

I have been taking the entire column and formatting it as text to make all of the data consistent. The problem I see comes when I go to use the autofilter, to say custom>begins with "123". The value 12345 does not show up in my filter. However, if I double click the cell 12345, then hit enter, and re-run my autofilter, it shows up.

Does anyone know the reason why this double-click-enter method forces Excel to recognize the value? And is there a way to mass-produce this command for the entire data set? Right now, I'm up to 5000 lines of data, so to do this on each would take a while.

I have gotten to the point that it will run error free if "Revenue" is the Active worksheet when I run the line, but if I am on any other sheet it throws an "Run=time '1004' Application-defined or object-defined error" error. And if I change the range from cell notation to Column-Row, the issue goes away as well.

Excel 2007 :: Macro Switching Formula Into RC Notation

Oct 17, 2011

I have a series of macros I have built to automate some report manipulation at my office. One of the macros I built inserts formulas into specific columns. When I run this macro, all the formulas, save one, are populated perfectly into the column they need to be in. This particular formula is swiched over to R1C1 Reference Notation.

In the workbook I built the macro in, it inserts the formula in the correct notation. When I run the macro in a different workbook, this one formula is converted to RC Notation and then is displayed as text (since the workbook is not set to the R1C1 Reference style option).

Is there a bug in my VBA code? If so, how can I correct this?

I use Excel 2007. Macros are saved in my Personal.xlsb workbook. All other forumlas populated by the macro work correctly.
