Sum A Range That Some Cells Have Text And Numbers
How can I sum all the values in a range of cells where the cells contain either a number or text and a number. Please note the following example?


I want the total of 31 but excel will ignore the cells with text.

Conditional Formula: If Text, Repeat As Number To Sum, Else Sum Numbers.
I can get only so far, then stumped:3 columns (Hours, Rate, Amount). "Hours" is a 'List' with data from from another sheet. Data is named 'Worked'. 'Worked' is all 2 decimal numeric (represents total time worked), except first item called "Live In"
IF 'Hours' is "Live In", I can use: =IF(A1="Live In", SUM(B1*1))

How can I make it conditional so that if it's not "Live In", then it will SUM(A1*B1)?. SideNote: 'Worked' LIST has total time with minutes expressed as 1/4 of hour (i.e., 1.25 = 1 hour, 15 minutes).

Sum Numbers Within Text
Note: I have uploaded a sample spreadsheet with the problem and the required results. I have text (eg. 1-* to 15-*) (* is a wild card) being entered in the following columns


The starting row for each above column is 21 and ends at 128. The text is different in every cell where text is entered, some cells will be blank. Each number (1-* to 15-*) appears only once on the spreadsheet are moved around. On the sample spreadsheet I have created a summary area in the left corner of the spreadsheet and this is where I would like the results to appear. I am using the following formula. The only issue is I need it work from 1-* to 15-*. Right now it only works up to 9-*. An example is 1-1 and the result is in cell D9 on the sample spreadsheet. = SUMPRODUCT((LEFT(Q21:BK128,2)="9-")*(MOD(COLUMN(Q21:BK128)-COLUMN(Q21),5)<2))

Sum Text Formatted Numbers
Is it possible to sum cells that contain numbers converted to text? I used TEXT function to convert them because I needed to format them (to display three decimal digits, if number < than 0.05, three digits otherwise). But now SUM Formula doesn't work.

Match Text To Numbers And Sum
In column 1 are 220,000 words (that's a lot ), every words corresponds to a number between 1 and 13 in column 2. Now i want to recode texts (column 2) using the codes in columns 1 and 2. I could insert all text in one cell, or i could insert each word in one cell. Then I want to calculate the sum of the corresponding values (column 2) of all the words (column 1) for each time they occur in the text (column 3). In other words, i want to recode text to numbers and i want to calculate their sum.

Sum Cell Numbers Which Are Preceded With Text
I have a number of cells which contain information such as 'H8', 'S4' and 'T6', etc, etc.

What I want is a formula which sums just the numerical part of these cells, so would add up the 8 plus 6 plus 4.

I have hundereds of these cells filled out like this. The first character in the cell is always a letter and then the number will either be a singe number (e.g. H8) or decimal (e.g. H7.5).

Sum Cells Only If 1 Or More Contain Numbers
I have a Sum formula adding three cells placed every other column (e.g. a1,c1,e1) these cells also contain formulae which links them to cells on another sheet.

My problem is where I try to sum these three cells the formula returns zero when all three are blank. I do understand I can use the If function or the options function to hide zeros but there maybe occasions when the sum might actually result in a zero.

The cell needs to return blank when the other cells are blank as it changes yet another cell which is instructed to change colour according to its result, and 0 when no data is entered would give the wrong impression to other users.

Count Number Of Rows That Have Numbers And Divide Sum Of Cells
I have a 52 (one for each week) page workbook. I am trying to average cell J9 for the entire 52 pages. However the information is not added to the cell until the end of the week so week 30-52 all have 0s and should not be counted in the dividing number. Is there a way to have Excel count the number of cells that have a number (not 0) and divide the sum of the cells but that number.

=(WK1!J9+.....WK52!J9) / (counted number of cells not = 0)

Sum Odd Or Even Numbers & Visible Or Filtered Cells
I need to subtotal/sum a series of columns individually (one column per month across a date range) by the odd numbered visible/ filtered rows as well as (separately) by the even numbered visible/filtered rows. Preferably the totals would recalculate like a SUBTOTAL whenever the filter is altered.

I've explored using Mod and SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible) but I can't get a syntactically correct combination to bring back the desired results.

Delete All Numbers Like: #####-## From Text Strings In Cells
I need to remove multiple instances of pages numbers from a 2000 character text string I have dumped into a cell. The spacing is not equal between the page numbers but they always take the form |#####-##| i.e. bar delimited 5 digit-2 digit. I tried SUBSTITUTE but it will not accept wildcards. I was thinking of looping through a SEARCH. The numbers are ordered ie |00001-01| to |00001-25| then |00002-01| etc, stopping at 25. This might lend to looping but I couldn't wrap my head around the VBA to accomplish that. A sample of the text

"|00006-01| (Defendants' Exhibit Nos. 1,2 marked for |00006-02| Identification.) |00006-03| BY MR. JOHNSON: |00006-04| Q. Doctor, I am handing you Exhibits 1 and 2. |00006-05| Exhibit 2, is that the one that you brought with you, |00006-06| the deposition notice of today? |00006-07| A. I believe so, yes." Auto Merged Post Until 24 Hrs Passes;I should have said this before but this is for use on Excel 2003 WinXP.

Delete Text In Cells Leaving Only Numbers
i m creating a macro to delete extra characters in a column. I have over 200,000.00 records in one column which consists of numbers with characters. For example:

/ 80730279
80736277 /
( )80739210
* 80739823
& 80735380
80796440 @
## 80722138

if anybody can come up with a macro, so that I can just have the numbers and nothing else. I would like to exclude the following -~!@#$%^&*()_=+?/.";:|][{},^` within a cell.

Remove Text Character From Cells With Numbers
I want to change the character ~ with . in order to be able to make them numeric values to be feeded to other functions. But REPLACE seems not doing the job so I've been checking out other options such as seperating after and before the character ~. Details are below. I've been trying to use this formula to extract values from a delimited database which I open with excel. The formula that has brought me close is =IF(ISNUMBER(E51)=FALSE,LEFT(E51,LEN(E51)- FIND("~",E51)),E51)


When I import the database, the figures above have originals as 14010.00000 & 3210.00000 but transfer to excel as above. As far as I have observed 9 character spaces are displayed & the DOT transfers to ~ for some reason. I need the LEFT section of the ~

Find Cells Contaning Text Not Numbers
I need to find cells containing text (Alpha characters only) in a single column, an return the row(+1 then -1). The column contains Group names (Unknown) , and under each name follows numeric data until the next group name. The cells are not formatted other than BOLD names. I need to exctract the numeric data in groups.


I have manged using the following code, but this always assumes there is an "e" in the name, but would prefer a more foolproof method. (I used "e" cos it is ok so far, BUT this could change in the future)

Sc = "A"
Sr = "1"

Format Formulas, Constants, Numbers & Text Cells Differently
I am attempting to write a VBA function that will add textual formatting to each cell that has content. I am just learning VBA; so far, as an example I have

Sub NewSub()
i = 1
j = 1
Cells(i, j) = "'" & Range(i.j).Value & "',"
i = i + 1
Loop Until i = 40
End Sub

but, as I'm sure you'll notice, it does not work. In essence I want to wrap quotes and follow with a comma each cell that contains any content. The actual content test I haven't gotten to yet.

Converting Decimal Numbers To Text With Dot Numbers
we work with both Lotus 123 and Excel 2003. Lotus will be gone next year, but for now, the official mean to publish our reports is Lotus. With my work, I copy/paste a Lotus page to Excel. I use the following macro to convert Lotus format numbers (which Excel considers as text) to real numbers:

Sub ForceToNumber()
Dim wSheet As Worksheet
For Each wSheet In Worksheets
With wSheet
. Range("IV65536") = vbNullString
.UsedRange.PasteSpecial xlPasteValues, xlPasteSpecialOperationAdd
End With
Next wSheet
End Sub

Source : The problem is that I need to send back this data in Lotus. Excel considers decimal numbers with a coma as real numbers and numbers with a dot as a text. This previous macro fixes that. However, Lotus works the other way. Only numbers with a dot are considered real numbers. So I would need to find a way to code a macro that converts any numbers in the Excel sheet to a number with a dot. It's a bit like doing the opposite operation.

Convert Numbers As Text To True Numbers
I have the following two macros that I use daily:

Public Sub add_tick_marks()
Dim c As Range
For Each c In Selection
If Not IsError(c.Value) Then
If Left(c.Value, 1) <> "'" And c.Value <> "" Then
If InStr(c.Value, "E+") > 0 Then
c.Value = "'" & c.Formula

I use these because I frequently copy billing account numbers that have leading zeros from some proprietary software and work with them in Excel. I need the leading zeros to facilitate VLookUp's. When I paste the data into Excel it truncates the leading zeros. My typical procedure is:

1. Copy a column of values from our proprietary software
2. Paste it in Excel (Ctrl+V)
3. While newly pasted data is still selected I hit Ctrl+1 which brings up the Format Cells form.
4. I double click "Text"
5. I re-paste into Excel (Ctrl+V)
6. I run my macro to add tic marks to the values so the leading zeros never get lost.

The problem occurs when I copy multiple columns of data and paste it in Excel. If one of the columns of data contains numbers or currency then I select that range of values and run the macro to get rid of the tic marks. After running the macro the numbers are still treated as text. When I select a range of those values and right-click on the status bar and select " Sum" there is no value. No big deal, I just highlight them and format the cells as numbers or currency. But after formatting them as numbers or currency, they retain their format as text until I click in the formula bar for each individual cell and hit enter, at which time they take on the number or currency format I have chosen and the sum can then be displayed in the status bar.

How can I force the formatting I chose to take effect on the data immediately without me having to individually "fake change" the data in each cell?

Match (text) Numbers To Numbers From One Cell To Another
I need the " solutions cells " to match to the " source cells " and return a " yes " or " no ". in cells d4:d10. Ex: #1 cell C4=01234598, it will conduct a search & match of cell A5 which contains the number 123, since cell C4 contains all 3 numbers from cell A5, then the formula would result in a " Yes ". The match has to contain all 3 numbers from the solution cells to the source cells.

Ex: #2 cell C7=67891234, it will conduct a search & match of cell A8 =901. Since cell C7 only contains the 9&1 from cell A8, it would return a " No " because cell C7 did not contain all 3 numbers from cell A8. I'm not sure if the IF, Match, Index or Count formula is the right one to use, they all seem to partially work, but still don't complete this problem.

Convert Numbers, Seen As Text, To True Numbers
The back story is that from a system we use, when you download data from inside it, Excel treats most of the cells with a "Number Stored As Text" error. I had problems with this and it was just generally annoying so I wrote the below macro that converts each of the cells back to general cells and reinputs the data, essentially reseting the cell and keeping the data. Being that this is a loop, it takes a good while to run if alot of data was downloaded. Any idea's on how to speed it up besides screen updating? Note, other stuff happens in the first macro, but it is just cosmetic non-intensive things. It calls the second macro because I wanted them seperate should I want to just run the second.

Sub CleanData()
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
' Find the Right most cell and the Bottom most cell and
' run the macro from A1 to this cell recursively
Col = Selection.Column
Row = Selection.Row
Range("A1", Cells(Row, Col)).Select
Application.Run ("FixTextAsNumberError")
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub..............

Sum The Last 6 Numbers Below 100
I've been trying to come up with a formula for this for a few hours now, but I can't work it out.

I'm using Excel 2002.

In column C I have a list of 50 numbers. They range from cell C1 to C50.
The numbers are either above of below 100.

Now, in cell D51 I want to sum the last 6 numbers in the list below 100.

So if the list would be:

C40 = 19
C41 = 25
C42 = 3
C43 =234
C44 =0
C45 =12
C46 =345
C47 = 0
C48 = 129
C49 = 1
C50 = 12

Now, the last six numbers below 100 (going upwards) are: 12, 1, 0, 12, 0, 3.
These numbers need to be summed. The outcome in this case would be 28.
