Userform Text Box Number Format


The problem is even though the worksheet cell is formated to 3 places the text box in the Userform shows many more than this. I have used the Control Source set to read the cell value.

The answer I've seen 'txtValue = Format(Value, "000.00")' which seems very neat and tidy but I'm not sure how to use it or where to place it.

Multiple Userform Text Box Number Format
'TextBox1.Text = Sheets("Shet1").Range("a1").Text'

However I have thirty text boxes on the Userform all linked to cells on a sheet. How do I apply this so that I dont have thirty lines of code. It just does not look elegant. I'm doing this because the number on the userform shows more decimal places than the cells format. Cell formated to 3 places Userform shows about 9 mostly .999999 etc

Save Number As Text In Txt Format Wo Changing The Format
In order to export an excel table into another program I first need to save the excel file as .txt. The .txt file can then be imported by the other program.

First I however need to make excel understand that the value should be a text and not a value. I therefore format the number as text (0000150235) by adding "0000150235". After saving the file as .txt the format changes from "0000150235" to """0000150235""". I do however need the format in the .txt file to be "0000150235". Can anyone tell me how I can save "0000150235" as .txt and get the value "0000150235" in the .txt file.

Insert Text In Front Of Text OR Number - User Defined Format
I can't seem to make user-defined format that puts a text in front of a number and/or a text.

Let's say I have A1: 13, A2: texttext A3: text7 and I want to format a lot of cells to "Ilike 13" / "Ilike texttext" / "Ilike text7"... ie add the same text in the front of the cell, no matter what the content is.

I did manage it seperately, with "texttext" @ for text and "texttext" # for numbers, but what's the general one?

Selectively Format Text In A Userform Textbox
Is it possible to selectively format text in a textbox on a userform ie. to make some of the text bold, other parts underlined and other parts italic etc. The text which appears in my text box is entered automatically by a piece of code which extracts the contents of certain cells and arranges them in the text box as needed. I would now like to be able to display the text box with the text formatted so that its not just all in plain text.

I have a standard block of text with numbers in it pulled from various calculations in a financial model. I have done this through a formula

e.g. ="You gross profit percentage is " & D9 & "% and your gross profit is $" & D10 & "." Problem is i'd like to format the numbers that pull through so they are easier to read. At the moment in the above example D10 results in $-600000000. I'd like it to look like $(600,000,000).

Format Into Text/ Number Value
I have a data set which is in a date format of MM/DD/YY. I have converted it to YYYYMMDD. I now need to copy and permanently past the values so that the value within the cell always reads to result of the date in the format of YYYYMMDD.

Example:
-current = 07/01/08
-new format = 20080701 (cell still reads 07/01/08)
-would like the cell to read 20080701

My main goal is to bring this into Access and use this dataset with another data set, which uses the YYYYMMDD format.

How To Convert TEXT Into NUMBER Format

Keep Number Format When Converting To Text
I have an excel file that is used to create a large text file. This is all done manually so I wrote some code to create the file automatically. I have everything working except that I am losing some info. The info is zeros after the decimal point. Almost all of the cells are formatted as numbers with 3 decimal places. It is common to have values of 0.000 that end up just 0 when they are written to the text file. Is there a way to keep the formatting (all decimal places)? Here is an example of code that I am using to write data directly from a cell to the file.

Format Number & Text In Same Cell
i have the next formula

which aberrantly returns text:

$24.675 & $26.2

I was wandering is there a way to format or put a formula which will format the numbers to be with two decimal places. The cell containing the formula is already formatted as number and the source tables are numbers with two decimal places.

i want the result to look like this
$24.68 & $26.20

Custom Number Format With Wrap & Text
I have been playing with custom formats recently and I'm wondering if there is anyway to make them wrap?

specifically I have several results that I have been formatting to show what they are related to

397235 visitors 392648 visitors 365487 visitors

I want these to display as visitors, but still be numbers so that they can be summed etc.
The problem is that I need the text to wrap so that visitors is on the second line in the cell. unfortunatley all i get is a ########## error to show the cell is not wide enough even with wrap text turned on.

Number Format Based On Corresponding Cells Text
Cell L90 to L120 are input cells where I type " Percentage" or "Dollar Amount". I need the five cells to the right of each input cell starting two cells over, to be formatted accordingly. I read a thread similar to what I'm asking for suggesting a worksheet change macro, but I can't quite figure it out for a range of cells. Also, in case I need to add a row to my sheet before all of these cells, how can I make sure that this will still work without having to go into the code. Is this an activecell thing?

Cannot Convert Numbers Stored As Text To Number Format
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.

Convert A Date Format To A Text Format

In D2 I have: =B2
In D3 I have manually input: (space)3-08

As you can see the CONCATENATE puts the "39569" date in A2 But the second line puts the text date as I prefer. What I would like to do is put in a formula or macro in D2 and down that will change the "Mar-08" to "3-08" so it CONCATENATEs correctly to column A. Simply: I'm trying to avoid manually inputing the text version "3-08" (or whatever M-Y) into D2 down a hundred or so rows!

Worksheet-like Format For Userform
I am currently working on a program to create a worksheet-like format for user to insert multiple inputs on userform.

I have tried using combobox and textbox. But apparently it will have to be individual and its very hard to make the number of combobox dynamic and it will also be very messy to have too many comboboxes in a userform.

And because there will be times when the user will need to input multiple rows, the combobox is definitely a no-no.

And the textbox only allow 1 time input.

The userform will have to be dynamic in a way that it has to be flexible depending on the number of inputs the user needs.

What i meant by multiple input is that: there should be multiple of columns with multiple of rows.

The motivation is to allow users to use an automated way of updating a form so that its just a matter of click.

Why it has to be dynamic is because all the users are using the same form but they have different needs when updating the forms.

Date Format In UserForm
Trying to take data from a UserForm and copy to specific cells

It's going OK with certain fields (eg, User name) but hit a snag with the date field. The cell is formatted as *15/03/2005 in format cells, but I get odd results when a date is entered.

Initially was getting an issue with leading zeroes. If I enter 1/1/2009, this value goes into the cell as 1/1/2009, not the 01/01/2009 that I expect.....

I was using

Range("C5") = DateBox

I got round the lack of leading zeroes by pasting the actual value into the cell

Range("C5") = DateBox.Value

However, now found that I'm getting the wrong date format! If I use the first method to copy data, I'm getting UK formatting (ie enter 12/2/2008 and I get 12/2/2008), but if I use the second method, I get 02/12/2008!

Converting? Format To Text Format
On the attached example i have a list of fractions (in the format ?/???). However, i have a problem when the fraction is 6/4 or 4/6 as excel rounds the nominator and de-nominator down to the lowest value so these fractions become 3/2 and 2/3. For these two fractions only i don't want this rounding down to happen.

I am open to any suggestions, but i was thinking of some vba where on pressing a button it would run a macro that went through the cells in the column and if the cell value is 1.5 (3/2) then format the cell as text and enter the value"6/4". For the 2/3 fraction, i think you may need to say if the cell is greater than 0.66 and less than 0.67 because this would possibly be harder to exact as the number of decimal places involved.

Conditional Number Format - To Be Used As Number
In Excel 2003, I have a series of complex(ish) lookups which populate cells in Sheet 1 from other sheets in the same workbook. Some of these cells are %ges some are not, I need to display the resultant sheet values as %ges or not based on if the cell to the left (also populated by a complex(ish) lookup) contains the character "%".

I cannot just format the cell on its own, as the list in itself is volatile and can change according to the complex(ish) lookup,

The main problem with this is I need the result to be a numeric value and NOT text in ALL cases as further calculations will be undertaken on them.

In simple if it is a %ge I need to see the %ge and use it as a %ge or if it is just a number see it as a number and use it as a number.

e.g

A B Result Req
Satisfaction with telephone access (%) 0.900032390.0%
Ability to see boss within 48 hours () 0.889 0.889

Inserting Data Into A Cell With A Userform In The Same Format
I have a userform with 4 text boxes. One of the boxes you have to enter in an amount. i.e. 25.52 This value gets put into cell E17 in my spreadsheet. When I click the button and it puts it in, it puts it in the cell as "25.52" with left alignment and does not apply it as the accounting style, as set to that cell. The same happens if I just type "25.52" instead.

I also have a formula applied so that if E18 is "Yes", E19 will display "0.00" otherwise, E19 should display the value of E17. And then column E has a total at the bottom of the values in Column E. Even when "25.52" or "25.52" is entered in, it comes up in cell E19 as 25.52 (not with accounting style) but it doesn't add up in the sum at the bottom of the column.
