VBA To Convert To Number

Jul 28, 2009

I have a string of imported data which comes into an existing spreadsheet. It cannot be changed prior to importing as the data is provided by an external vendor.

When the data is imported into my spreadsheet the Error Checking tag comes on, after I select the cells where certain numeric data has been entered, stating that this is a range of Numbers Stored as Text. If I click on the Error Checking tag and select the Convert to Number option and then enter my VLOOKUP function I get the desired answer. If I do not convert the text to numbers then my VLOOKUP function does not work at all. The cell just displays the function text itself instead of the desired answer.

Here is what I am requesting:

Assistance with writing the VBA code to accomplish the manual task of converting the text to numbers. I have tried to format using the Ribbon without success.

Convert Number In TextBox To True Number

Nov 7, 2006

i have this function that poulates data from a userform into a sheet.

For lLoop = 1 To MAWBNoVar
With Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp)
.Offset(1, 0) = Controls("txtMAWB" & lLoop)
.Offset(1, 1) = Left(Controls("cbDestination" & lLoop), 3)
.Offset(1, 2) = Controls("txtGW" & lLoop)
.Offset(1, 3) = Controls("txtCBM" & lLoop)
.Offset(1, 4) = "= ROUND(E" & Y & "*167,0)"
.Offset(1, 5) = "=IF(D" & Y & ">F" & Y & ",D" & Y & ",F" & Y & ")"
.Offset(1, 6) = "=IF(F" & Y & ">D" & Y & ",G" & Y & "-D" & Y & ",G" & Y & "-F" & Y & ")"
Y = Y + 1
End With
Next lLoop

My problem is that the data being entered into the sheet for the lines highlighted in red is going in as text, and not true numerics, so that the subsequent formulae are not working correctly.

Convert To Number..

Nov 11, 2008

I'm just trying to get a total of columns E, F and G, and place those totals in row 5. The problem is that somehow the numbers in column G were stored as text, so the SUM formula is coming up "0". How would I format these cells, in a macro, (columns E, F and G, just in case the data in the other two columns were stored as text), as a number so that I can total them.

I've tried selecting the column, selecting format cells and choosing number, but that doesn't work. I can manually select the cells, click the little exclamation point, and then tell it to convert to number. This works, but when I tried to record it to add it to the macro, it didn't record anything but the selection of the cells.

Convert Text To Number ...

May 14, 2007

I have a combobox embedded into an excel sheet with a linked cell and a range defined in the combobox properties. Every time I change the value in the combobox, the value in the linked cell is stored as text instead of a number.

I have tried copying a cell containing 1 and copying and pasting as special into the linked cell but that only fixes it for the time being. If I change the value in the combobox again, the value in the linked cell is again stored as text. I tried =value() in the linked cell but that again only worked temporarily. Every time I change the value in the combobox, the value in the linked cell is stored as text.

Convert Number To A Date?

Jan 11, 2013

I have a date in a particular cell, say O5, formatted as mm/dd; e.g. 11/14

I have the following formula in another cell;

=M5 &", Lot# "& N5 &", Expires "& O5, where cell M5 = "CONTROL" and cell N5 = "#####"

Why does the date get converted to a serial number. i.e. CONTROL, Lot# #####, Expires 41592?

My aim is to get the date "11/14" to appear in the cell.

Convert Name Of Month To A Number

Jan 15, 2013

I am trying to convert the name of a month to a number but there is a slight issue with using my normal method of TEXT("1/"&A1&"/2013","mmm")

I am trying to create a dynamic table which if you change 1 value for the month, it changes others

so my data looks like so,

May <---- this is the value which is chosen

The problem is when I select the month "January", it assigns the value of the above cell as 1/0/2013 which is not a date when in fact I want to set it as "December".

Convert A Number Into Text

Jun 7, 2009

I'm trying to write a macro that will convert a number into text but can't hone in on the right coding

here's what I want to do:

a.) I select a cell in my spreadsheet that contains a number, it can be in any format ie: 100, 7.7442, 22.3
b.) I launch the macro
c.) the macro converts the number into text and adds the letter T in the front so the new cell value becomes: T100, T7.7442, T22.3

Convert Number To Decimal

Sep 4, 2009

I need a formula to take the numbers listed in cells D4:D50

If below 1,000,000 than just keep that number value


If the Ten Thousands place is 5 or below leave the same if it is higher round up. (use this concept for ALL PLACE VALUES

1,500,000 to 1.5 million (if the rest are zeros)

4,000,000 to 4 million

1,564,535 than to 1.57 million

1,545,535 than to 1.54 million

1,555,000 than to 1.55 million

Same concept for the rest as the Millions (move the rounded place up as needed)

So for Billions it would be 10 Millions place (to round form) I think lol

1,000,000,000 to 1 Billion

1,500,000,000 to 1.5 Billion

1,560,000,000 to 1.57 Billion

1,578,000,000 to 1.58 Billion

1,700,000,000 to 1.7 Billion

I would like this to continue all the way up to place value 999 QUADILLION! (if possible) if the value can go bigger that would be great!

Convert Number Into Mintues

Jan 13, 2010

1000 = 1 minute
3000 = 20 seconds
100 = 10 minutes

What would be the forumla for converting these figures into time? These are just examples another one would be 275 = 3 minutes 38 seconds

Better yet here is the whole scoop.

Speed = 1000
Distance = 1.0 (i.e. mile)
Time = 00:01:00.0

I know these facts.

Convert Column Letter To Number

I need to convert a column letter to a column number for the following line of code in my VBA application:

strAverageBaseFormula = "=AVERAGE(D" & Trim(Str(lngFirstRowOfIncrement + 1)) & ":K" & Trim(Str(lngFirstRowOfIncrement + 1)) & ")"

I am inserting a formula into a cell using VBA, but the problem is that I don't know the letter value of column "K" (used in the middle of the line); instead, I know it as column number 11. Is there a simple way to convert the column number 11 to the column letter "K"?

Convert Text To Number With A Formula

Jun 12, 2014

I need a formula to copy a number stored as a text to the number.

I have a formula in, let's say on Sheet1, cell A1: =IF($M$3,TEXT(N7,"0%"),TEXT(N7,"0.0%"))

I then copy this cell to another sheet, let's say Sheet2, cell A1 =Sheet1!A1. I have then have a bar chart linked to this cell, but it's reading it as text and no bars are appearing in the chart - even though the cell in the second sheet is formatted as a number!

FYI - my work around is to link my chart to the underlying data in the formula above, in this case, N7. But then I'm not getting the whole number (%) or decimal (%) that I want when the value is displayed in the chart.

Convert Date To Alphanumeric Number

Jan 6, 2014

As the title says I was wanting to convert a date into an alphanumeric number.

After searching around for a long time the closest thread I could find was this one : [URL] ....

I would like to enter the date by dd/mm/yyyy and have it come out to an alphanumeric number.

The alphanumeric number for example would be C21501
Where "C" is the year starting from 2013. So in this case C would be 2015

Next two digits would be the week of that year. So 21 would be in the month of May

The following number would be the day of that week starting from Monday. So in this case 5 would be Friday.

The last two numbers would be the consecutive number for that day. For example two orders could be placed that same day so the first would be C21501 and the next would be C21502.

VBA Userform – Convert Number To Percent

Feb 12, 2010

In the attached sample (with macros enabled), you will find the problem when pressing the button “INDTAST DATA” (I apologize for the linguistic challenge, but the XL-sheets are in Danish… To relief – check the crash course in Danish below) and then entering some number in the two last textboxes (called “Forventet ændring i antal timer I næste kvartal (%)” and “Forventet ændring i omsætning i næste kvartal (%)”)… If you enter something there, the result will be multiplied by 100 in the worksheet.

I would like to be able to simply enter a full number – like 12 or 9,5– which will then be entered into the worksheet as 12% or 9,5% (and not 1200% or 950%)… I think the answer lies in inserting some code in the VBA code, when the macro writes the data to the worksheet, but you guys know more about it than I do...

I can, of course, enter a full number in the textboxes – followed by a %-sign, but that will slow down the process significantly as well as increase the risk of errors…

Virksomhed = Company
Kvartal = Quarter
År = Year
Branche = Industry
Fakturerede timer = Billed hours
Faktureret omsætning = Billed revenue
Timeforventning = Expected hours (next quarter)
Omsætningsforventning = Expected revenue (next quarter)
Indtast data = Enter data
