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.
Preserve Cell Number Format In Message Box
I'm writting an Excell VB application which reads data from my spreadsheet and places it into the text member of an IXMLDOMElement node in order to generate a QBXML request.
The cell I am reading from has datatype number with two decimal places as required by the xml scheme. The problem is that the Range.Value Variant data type drops the decimal point and any trailing zeros so that 1197.00 become 1197. Unfortunately, the QBXML parser requires to see the decimal as well as trailing zeros. So, 1197.90 must show up as precisely that. Changing 1197.90 into 1197.9, for example, also breaks the xml.
My Excel VBA book specifically states that a Variant data type holding numerical data will maintain the data type assigned to it.
I also tried declaring a local decimal (Dim MyDecimal As Decimal) thinking to try copying the Range.Value value to it before assigning to the QBXML field in order to force the correct data format but my VBA macro compiler does not apparently recognize "Decimal" as a valid data type event though my book clearly indicates it is one of the valid VB data types.
I am using Excel 2000. Are these problems solved in newer versions?

Insert And Format A Text Box
I would like to add a menu option that will run a subroutine to automatically add a formated text box to the worksheet at the selected cell location. The box must have the text centered, bold, underlined in Arial 10, and no border. I use this method to create a flow chart and would like to make it easier. At the moment I create three different text boxes and then copy them to the clipboard. Then I just click each one, drag it into position and edit the text. I tried recording a macro while adding the text box to the worksheet, but it didn't record anything except the cell selection.

I did manage it seperately, with "texttext" @ for text and "texttext" # for numbers, but what's the general one?
Simple Math Using Text Box Values In A Userform

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.
Force Date Format Entry In Text Box
A form loads and the first thing the user is to do is enter a specific date in a text box (preferably in, "mm/dd/yyyy" format.)
Is there any way to set up the text box so that when the form loads, the, "/"'s (slashes) are already in place? And can I set it up so that if the user enters in the date in any other manner aside from, "mm/dd/yyyy", that it will give them an error?
Finally, I want the user's date input to store on a worksheet (in row, "G".) So the first time the user uses the form, they type in a date and it stores the date in the FIRST AVAILABLE CELL IN ROW, "G." (example: "G1") The next time they use the form and type in a date, it is to store in, "G2", then in, "G3", ect. Each time they fill out the form, the new entry is to save in the next row beneath the previous entry.....
For other text boxes and combo boxes I have been using the following code to do this:
Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A" & intRow) = Text.Value (or Combobox.Value - depending on whether it was a text box or a combo box.)
Unfortunately I have NO idea how to apply this logic in regards to text boxes that are to store dates.
VBA - Userform: Click In A Text Box, Contents Is Selected
I'm building a userform (for the first time), and I'm working with a textbox control. I'd like to make it so that when the user clicks in that textbox, the contents is selected, so that if they begin typing, it will type over what is already there.
My question, specifically, is whether or not there is a property I can set to make this the default behavior, and if not - what event do I tie to this action? Is it the "Enter" event?
What I have now, which will probably be unacceptable to my users, is code that looks like this:
Private Sub tbName_Enter()
ActiveControl.Value = ""
This makes the contents disappear, but I'd rather they stay there and just become "selected".

Text Box Entry To Number
Is it possible to make a textbox entry be a number.

Passing A Number From A Text Box
i have a small problem with a text box, its working fine, its on a seperate sheet to the one it passes the value to, its basically a quantity box, so the cell it passes the value to has a simple =I12*J12 formula in it, to multiply the quantity by the unit price, thus equalling the total priec of course. My problem comes if you change your mind, you put in the item, and the quantity, all works good, but if you want to delete the item you enter 0 or delete the value right? When i delete the value, the total cell brings back a #VALUE error, instead of 0, its almost like the text box is passing an invalid string to the quantity box, instead of nothing, if i manually delete the the value (even tho the cell is empty) from the linked cell, the #VALUE error goes away, any clues as to what the text box is passing that is causing hte error?
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.
-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 TxtBox Entry As A Number Not Text

Format Number & Text In Same Cell
i have the next formula
=IF(C6="PRODUCT 1","$"&VLOOKUP(B6,N:T,3,FALSE)&" & "&"$"&VLOOKUP(B6,N:T,5,FALSE),"N/A”)
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
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.
Custom Number Format :: To Contain (and Show) Both An Interger And Text
I would like to format a row of cells. I want each cell in the row to contain (and show) both an interger and text. The interger will range in value from one to ~10,000. The text will always be two characters long...but these characters will change from cell to cell.
Elsewhere in the spreadsheet I will have a cell (w/ a formula) that counts the values of the intergers in the row, but ignores the text in each cell.
a procedure for format ing the cells in the row?
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.
Copy Date Into Text Box Retaining Date Format
I've created a group of user forms used for recording jobs and displaying details of jobs and have come up against a problem I think you may be able to help me with.
When the user creates a new record, I've written some code to stamp txtdate text box with the current system date and this information is then copied onto a sheet called Data into a specific column.
This part works fine and as the column is formatted to handle dates it displays fine.
However, when I pull the data back in, it displays the date as the serial number date, not formatted as dd/mm/yy. I've tried every fix I can find to sort this but none of them seem to work.
The code I use to pull the data in is as follows:
ComboBox1.BoundColumn = 11
txtdate.Value = ComboBox1.Value
The idea is that the user selects a job number from combobox1 and then the appropriate column is pulled into each txt box on the form.
At the same time, I'm trying to do the same for the system time as well. Unsurprisingly I have a very similar problem here and use the same code as above. I've tried formatting both date and time txt boxes in the userform, the data transfer code etc etc with no success.

I have a combo box named Combobox5 and a text box named Textbox7.
Should this code go in the Userform Initliaze or where? I have tried placing it in both the ComboBox5 Change evnent and no luck so far.

Again this code is dependant upon the user making a choice from ComboBox 5.
I have also tried:

Checkbox = False ------- textbox = (enabled = True)
VBA: Format Amts Into Text $ 9.99 Type Format

Number/Text Format: Custom Formate "0000-0000-0"
I have this data 0123-4567-8 but in the formula bar it only shows as 12345678. When I looked at the format it has as Custom 0000-0000-0 and it would be correct. The formula that I used to extract the numbers without the dash is =LEFT(A3,4)&MID(A3,6,4)&RIGHT(A3,1) the result is 12345678 So when I reference this number to 012345678 I get the wrong answer.
