Trying To Get Excel To Recognize Data As Numbers

Sep 25, 2013

I am trying to take a report that I can run and paste the data into excel. It is basically the same as if I went to a web page, and pasted some data into excel. Technically it pastes everything into 1 cell but I am able to break it up using Text to columns. The problem is that I have been unable to get excel to recognize the data as anything other than text (I.E, numbers and numbers and dates as dates). I've tried formatting cells and removing spaces.

Excel Won't Recognize Dates - Time

Jan 22, 2014

Attached a workbook of what I see. On column A and B there are dates with time on a "m/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss" format.

Until a while ago excel 2010 would recognize the dates and I was able to find the time difference between the 2 just by typing =B1-A1 (column C)

I think due to a Microsoft update (?) I cannot do it anymore and excel will not recognize the info?

Get Excel To Automatically Recognize And Highlight All Instances Of Word?

Apr 5, 2014

I'm trying to make a spreadsheet template that will find and replace all instances of a given word with a bold or highlighted version. However, I do not know how to make this process passive and automated. That is, as soon as I type certain words, they should be auto-corrected. Is there a way to set excel so it will recognize certain words and replace them? Is there a way to do this in the settings? I don't think a macro is the right answer in this case, so I put it in the general thread.

Excel 2007 :: Countif Doesn't Recognize Some Cells

May 13, 2014

Excel 2007
Windows 8

For this project i need to analyze clusters of data. My first step is to remove all none duplicates.

I have created this formula =COUNTIF(N:N,N1)=1, this goes all the way down to =COUNTIF(N:N,N5443)=1. My plan is to remove all rows that return a "True" to delete all non-duplicates.

I'm noticing, although 90% is recognized correctly, 10% is not. Some formulas return as true, when clearly there are duplicate values. The N Column is trimmed, to correct for spaces.

What the pitfalls with countif formulas usually are in this situation?

N Column
O Column

Returns False

How To Make Excel Recognize Cell Range Larger Than 32,767

Apr 20, 2009

I am trying to use the codes below to find text "xmxy" and "xmx" within a column, then try to move the cells between the texts to the right by one column. I believe that the problem for the code below is that

Cells(j, "B").Insert (xlShiftToRight)
or If Cells(i, "B").Value = "xmxy" Then has limitations. I read that when you dim a variale as integer, it only can contain value between -32,768 to 32,767 . But I have more than 32,767 rows of data. I have already set dim i,j, etc. as long, but how do you set the cells range to recognize number larger than 32,767?

Sub ShiftRightbbb()
Dim i As Long, j As Long, lastrow As Long, rowscount As Long, count As Long
lastrow = Range("b" & 65000).End(xlUp).Row
For i = 1 To lastrow
If Cells(i, "B").Value = "xmxy" Then
For j = i To lastrow
Cells(j, "B").Insert (xlShiftToRight)
If Cells(j, "C").Value = "xmx" Then GoTo Nextgroup
Next j
End If
Next i
End Sub

Excel 2010 :: Unable To Recognize Cell That Contain Colon Correctly

Oct 4, 2011

i have encountered a problem which happens when you write data that contain : in an excel sheet (i use excel 2010)

for instance if i enter to one of the cell 45:58 excel sees it as 01/01/1900 21:48:00 when i try to get the information by using a function i will get the wrong data for example typing in the different cell LEFT(Cell,5) will result 1.908

(i receiving the data from an outside source in this way and i need to make analysis)

i have noticed that the first 2 digits (21 in the example) are related to the number i have choosen in a 24 hour cycle for instance

24:58 will result 01/01/1900 00:58:00
26:58 will result 01/01/1900 02:58:00
48:58 will result 02/01/1900 00:58:00

Excel 2007 :: Loop Expression Won't Recognize Values Are Equal?

Apr 20, 2012

(Excel 2007) The issue I'm having is that a loop statement of mine is failing to recognize that a couple values are equal. It works for the first 3 iterations of the loop, then stops recognizing. I tried copying another set of numbers in the failing one's place, and that actually worked. I can't attach anything, so I'm including a link to a detailed screen shot with some notes on it and code that I'll host on my site. Not sure how else to explain the issue, but if you take a look at the screen shot you can see the excel sheet being worked on and the vba code running. I will also include a text file of the code

Here are the links to the screen shot and text file of my code

Import Large Text File Of Numbers Without Excel Splitting Numbers?

Jul 19, 2014

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?

Filter Do Not Recognize Value

Mar 18, 2009

I am trying to filter data in one sheet depending on a variable in another. But even though I have the same formatting in both sheets it will not recognize the number. I have tried everything from pasting values, to pasting the same formats in both areas, using the F2 option, but nothing seems to work. My single value is in Sheet1 B2. The rest of the data I'm filtering is in Exceptions2 with the filter criteria residing in column A. I have headers in row 1.

Sub Recall_BT()
Sheets("Exceptions2").Visible = True
Dim rr As Range, r1 As Range
Dim r2 As Range
Dim r3 As Range
Dim rCell As Variant
rCell = Sheets("Sheet1").Range("g3")
Dim sh As Worksheet
Dim wsCopyTo As Worksheet
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Set sh = Worksheets("Exceptions2")
sh.Range("A1").CurrentRegion.AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:=rCell
Set rr = ActiveSheet.AutoFilter.Range
Set rr = rr.Offset(1, 0).Resize(rr.Rows.Count - 1, 1)
On Error Resume Next
Set r1 = rr.SpecialCells(xlVisible)
On Error GoTo 0...................................

Recognize The Cells

Mar 31, 2009

I am having trouble creating a formula to help me recognize the 4 cells that I have.

On C1, I need this cell to identify the numbers in E1, F1, G1, and H1.

On E1, F1, G1, H1 each of the cell have a number.

If all the cells (E1,F1,G1,H1) have a digit, does not matter what number it is, than C1 would automatically place "ABCD" and in white.

E1 = A
F1 = B
G1 = C
H1 = D

any time a cell has a digit, then C1 would tell me which of those cells are used with A,B,C, or D.

ISNA Does Not Recognize #N/A

May 10, 2006

I realize there are a number of threads on this topic, and I've read through them but have been unable to apply those answers to this problem. I've attached a sample of the worksheet in question. The worksheet is supposed to tell me if messages are supported via a certain Network (BFX).

Column A is the result of a VLOOKUP function, which returns Yes or No if the entry is found, or #N/A if the entry is not found. Column B is my attempt to translate column A into strictly "Yes" and "No", converting an #N/A into a "No". For some reason, the ISNA( function I'm using doesn't seem to work, as highlighted in row 18.

Formula To Recognize The Information

Dec 17, 2008


It works great.

The issue is that the information (time) that I import into excel doesn't show as information if there is a zero in front the amount of hours. I can physically see the information but have trouble using it. For instance if I add

(A1) 05:25:25
(A2) 10:25:25
(A3) 02:25:25

If I total/SUM this my total is 10:25:25. It will not recognize anything under 10 with a first digit as a zero. So for me to add this I use:


This also works great. Now on to my issue.

I am using the 1st formula to grab data i.e. (A1). It will not recognize that as anything. It comes up as zero. I can't figure out what to add to the 1st formula for it to recognize the info.

Recognize Value And Generate Outputs

Jul 5, 2009

The issue: Theres about 300 rows of data arranged in multiple columns. One column has a dollar amount and another column has a code. Data gets entered into the sheet periodically so every new dollar amount needs to be transferred to another sheet by recognizing the right code.

What I want to do: I want excel to recognize the dollar amount and attribute it to the code in the same row. Then sum and transfer that amount to another sheet and if possible add it to an existing amount the in the correct cell.

The final outcome should be that any user of the document can just copy and paste data into one sheet and the document automatically generates the costs in another sheet. And if possible every dollar amount should be linked to a code so a user can just click on the amount and see where it came from and under what code it falls under.

VLookup Won't Recognize Text

Feb 12, 2013

I created a lookup helper sheet to do some data cleanup and serve as a key for future use.

The problem I'm having is that things that I am doing a vlookup on won't find the corresponding value in the key table.

So in the original sheet I had "blueberry" in the helper/key sheet I have "blueberry" as well. But I still get the "#N/A" error.

The key values in the helper sheet were all derived from the original by using a pivot then copying those values so there were only unique values over to the helper sheet.

I had them both formatted as general and tried formatting to text as well.

Specific Pattern - Fill Won't Recognize It

Aug 1, 2014

I am comparing two years' data, one on top of the other (Rows 1 and 2). For each cell in each row, I am referencing a cell from a different tab. This needs to be done with about 290 data items, so 580 rows.

When I attempt to copy the two rows down, it doesn't go in the correct order (skips a cell reference number). It looks like this:

Excel Forum Q.xlsx

It would save me a lot of time considering each of the 580 rows has about 30 different column with each cell referencing various things.

Numeric Values Not Being Recognize On Password

Nov 27, 2008

The problem I currently have is all numeric values only are not being recognized on my password column. I have tried changing the cell formats but still problem still there. The program work if an alphanumeric value is declared as password. However if you simply indicate plain numeric values only as password, it returns incorrect values, it like it doesn;t recognize all numeric values. Also how can I make 0000 as a declared password? when I place 0000 on my password column, only one zero value is being displayed instead of four another thing if I happen to place 0123 only 123 is being displayed.
