I have a userform with 35 text boxes on which display data from a worksheet based on a selection made from a combobox.

My problem is that TextBox11 and TextBoxes 15-35 all need to show a value to 2 decimal places i.e 360.00.

I have found the following line of code:

Code:

For Each ctrl In Controls If TypeName(ctrl) = "TextBox" Then ctrl.Value = Format(ctrl.Value, ".00") Next ctrl

Which does the job but unfortunatley it applies it to every single textbox on the form (not just No's 11,15-35) which is a problem as some of the boxes contain dates so instead of 09/05/2012 i actually get 41038.00.

My question is how to I modifiy the above code (or is there an alternative code?) to only apply to the required textboxes?

I have a vba macro that takes data from one workbook and pastes it into another workbook. In doing this I have declared a few variables of type single (I only need two decimal precision). However, when I copy the values from the cells on the source workbook and paste them into the target workbook, the numbers end up having 12 decimal places. Ultimately, this extra precision causes my totals to be off by .01 or more after a while. I have tried rounding the number as I pull it off the source workbook into the variable, but that didn't matter. How do I solve this problem? Code for pulling data from source workbook:...

I have following for change event in text boxes to only allow numerics e.g.

Private Sub txtGBP10_Change() If (Not IsNumeric(txtGBP10.Value) And (txtGBP10.Value <> "")) Then txtGBP10.Value = Left(txtGBP10.Value, Len(txtGBP10.Value) - 1) End If End Sub Private Sub txtShare10_Change() If (Not IsNumeric(txtShare10.Value) And (txtShare10.Value <> "")) Then txtShare10.Value = Left(txtShare10.Value, Len(txtShare10.Value) - 1) End If End Sub

Can I add some code so that the user can only add numeric entries to 2 DP (txtGBP) or 3DP(txtShare)

if I change the formatting of a cell to 2 decimal places, it appears as two decimal places (as it should) for example $88.88888 will show as $88.88

However, when I use this data in another application that displays this data it will display as 88.88888 still. I need to actually take the value and truncate it to 88.88 eg 8.8888888 will become 8.88

I have been using trunc by hand and wanted to try and find out if there is a way that I could write some sort of macro to do this for me each time.

I have a problem that when I try to convert text to number and format the number without 2 decimal places as seen on the link I have given below, Instead of 1607.947, I get 1607947. I have Excel 2010 loaded. The details are in below picture.

Is there a way to format a cell based upon a condition? If the cell value is <1, I want to show two decimal places. If the cell is >1, I want to show zero decimal places. I tried to use the conditional formatting, but there is no option for this.

I need a function to find the number of decimal places of a certain number (in this specific case doubles)

The first solution would be something like this:

Code: 'returns the number of decimal places within a double Public Function getDecPlaces(inputNum As Double) As Long Dim ndx As Long ndx = InStr(1, inputNum, ".") If ndx > 0 Then getDecPlaces = Len$(CStr(inputNum)) - ndx End If End Function

But i feel there is likely a much better way of doing this..

If you look at the attached file in Column E line 47 you will see that it displays 373.97. However if you look in the formula bar it shows 373.9694. I am trying to make it so that the formula bar shows the same number as in the cell. Any idea on how to do this? I have tried everything I know how to do, which is not much.

I am using Excel 2007 and importing a list of coordinates. The coordinates are in a text file and separated by commas, so I'm opening the file as a delimitted file. All of the coordinates import correctly except one. The value is supposed to 52530.6372, but Excel is automatically changing it to 52530.6371999999

If I manually type a "2" to replace the "1999999", it changes it back. If I type "3" it stays as a 3.

I added a round function to force it to round to 4 decimal places and that seemed to work until I then tried using the number with text commands. When I used an ampersand to insert the number into a text string, the additional decimal places are back, even with a round function!

Here's what I'm doing: I'm using a macro to assign a cell value to a variable then set another cell value to the variable instead of copy/paste (because even pasting values only was affecting other formulas in the file for some reason)

The problem: in using the macro, the number being 'copied' is acquiring a few extra decimal places IE 38334.61 is the original number and 38334.609375 is what I end up with. The numbers come from a CSV with only 2 decimal places and I checked by adding decimal places in the format so it's not a formatting/visible digits issue. Since the values are hour meter readings, the extra decimal places end up with very small values outside 0-24 hrs which messes with sorting and usage %. The values are so small all of them together in a month add up to a fraction of a cent but it's one of those things that bugs my OCD by not being right.

My VBA book explains the min/max capabilities, content type, memory bits but not fiddly details like this.

So my question is this: right now I'm declaring the clipboard-substitue variable as an single, is there a different one that would work better without adding anything? Criteria are: numeric, 6 digits before the decimal, 2 after, all positive values. (Ie 123456.12)

I need to convert a column of numbers currently formatted with 2 decimal places e.g. 112.12 to 4 decimal places (without the decimal point). I need the end result to be 1121200. I've tried a few different suggestions given on the forum previously but can't seem to retain the 4 decimal places that I require.

I was going to use the following to test that a number has no more than two decimal places,

Code:

If Int(ActiveCell.Offset(0, 8) * 100) ActiveCell.Offset(0, 8) * 100 Then However it is rather mysteringly failing when activecell = 16.99 or 17.99; on testing it appears that vba is evaluating Int(ActiveCell.Offset(0, 8) * 100) to equal 1698 or 1798

I am facing a problem with Excel's Concatenate function. I am trying to make a text string with numbers from a cell. =CONCATENATE( "price paid= ", D23). D23 is a numreric cell, formatted for one decimal place. However, the text produced by above function is showing me two decimal places of the number in D23.

I am creating a Daily Cash Count worksheet for a business to do their daily closeout paperwork. What I am trying to do is automatically apply decimal formatting to a cell. Examples, if they count 60 cents in nickles and enter 60 in the cell, it automatically converts it to .60. And if they count 7.50 cents in quarters and enter 750 in cell it automatically would convert it to 7.50.

I'm trying to work out a formula in excel which requires me to use Pi to over 30 decimal places. Excel will only let me have 30 decimal places of Pi whether I copy and paste it as a number or use its Pi function and even then seems to round up. Is there any way I can get more than 30 decimal places for this calculation? If not in excel then can anyone suggest another programme that may be capable of this?

Is it possible to apply some kind of formatting to a range, that will force all numbers entered into that range to have the same number of decimal places as the cell with the maximum number of decimal places?

Everytime I enter a number, excel automatically converts it to a decimal number.

I type 1 in a cell (or formula box) Excel returns the value as 0.1

I think it may have to do with the FIX box highlighted to the bottom of the screen. (To the right side of the NUM lock). (I can't paste a screen dump to show the FIX box position). how to remove the FIX box, and/or change excel so that I can enter in numbers normally.

I am doing some calculations via Excel, and I have found that I get different results using a calculator. I know that by formatting the number, I can show as many or as little decimal places as I like in any cell, but can anyone tell me how many decimal places Excel actually uses when it's carrying out calculations? I have a feeling that the Excel results I'm getting might be more accurate than my calculator ones.

I am using Excel 2003. I am attempting to use the Accounting format with numbers that should not have any decimal places (although what is entered might have a decimal place). The numbers line up fine on the right, however, the dollar signs on the left are not lining up. It looks something like:

I have a simple spreadsheet that allows the user to enter a dimension in metric or inches. I want to display the other units in the adjacent cell. In cell A1, the units are "Metric" or "Inch" in a pull down list. In cell A2, the value is entered.

In cell A3 i want to show the value in the other units. So if A1 is Metric, then take A2 and divide by 25.4. And if A1 is Inch, then take A2 and multiply by 25.4. Also, if A1 is Inch, then display 2 decimal places in A3, and if A1 is Metric, then display 3 decimal places in A3. Is this possible?
