# Warning When More Then Two Decimals Are Used

Mar 30, 2007
I am trying to put together a code so that when a user enteres more then two decimal points in the cell value they should get a warning regardless if they formatted the cell to show 2 decimals or not...

Simply the problem is on the sheet I have a lot of people format the cell to show two decimals but when you copy and paste the cell values to other sheets the decimals are still there which causes problems.

I am intermediete in VBA so if someone can shoot me some example codes I think I can make it work on my sheet.

I am trying to convert Degrees Minutes & Decimals of a minute (12° 34.567') to Degrees and decimals of a degree (12.57611°). I have the formula to convert latitude, that is two digits, but it doesn't want to work with longitudes, three digits. (see attachment). This is the formula that I am using:

=IF(A2="","",(INT((LEFT(A2,3)+MID(A2,4,6)/60)*100000)/100000)&"d")

I am creating a graph with a wide range of values (0.06 - 300). The smaller values are barely visible on my column graph. I have tried all of the tricks I know. Any way to get the smaller values to show up instead of just hovering towards the bottom of the graph?

I have a lot of links on my excel page, links going to videos. Everytime I click the link, I have this message :

"there might be viruses... are you sure you want to open this file?"

I know there must be a way to take this message off : I worked with it for months, and then it suddenly disappeared. But now that I formatted, it's back again

I am trying to get an exact ratio in excel but am unable to do so. Example:

60,000/58000 = 1.03. The ratio should then be 1.03:1. But excel is showing this is 1:1. Here is my formula

PHP

=TEXT(E55/E56,"0")&":1" . I need it to show it to two decimals.

A spreadsheet created by exporting from QuickBooks as a .IIF file is opened in Excel 2003.

A macro multiplies a cell value and returns 1.77999997138977 rather than 1.78. The 1.78 is required for importing back into Quickbooks.

Part of the code is: ...

i am looking for some formula to round off a decimal number

e.g. A1=8.288

if I use the formula ROUND(A1,2) the result is 8.29.

But I am looking for a result 8.288. That means it shoukd not round off rather the after decimal we should have only two numbers.

8.288 should be 8.28

27.4627 should be 27.46

I have several material takeoff sheets and one material SummarySheet in my workbook.

Each material takeoff sheet has a subtotal cell at the bottom of the sheet. The subtotals are added together and the total sum is displayed in a cell on the SummarySheet. At least that is how it is supposed to work. Excel or somebody else arbitrarily changed the cell reference in the SummarySheet formula to call up the cell one row above the subtotal cell on the material takeoff sheets. This little action resulted in a loss of $674,000 and may eventually result in my unemployment. Meanwhile I am sitting here putting out fires.

This is what I would like to do: Place a formula on the SummarySheet or add a Macro that will trigger a warning message box if the total on the SummarySheet is not equal to the sum of the subtotals on the material takeoff sheets. Also would like to have the message box animated or brightly colored.

If(PlateCostsTotals+AppurtenancesCostsTotals+StructuralCostsTotals+MiscellaneousCostsTotalsSummaryCostsTotal MsgBox “Hey, Don’t You Know How to Add”) or an alternate formula that works.

i have columns of prices in 2 decimal format that I'd like to manipulate, some prices are whole dollars(no cents & no decimals ) and most are dollars and cents in decimal format-- but to do it successfully, i need the decimal removed. I looked at the "format" function but it doesn't seem to allow for that.

is there any way I can have these prices converted to "cent" format( ie removing the decimal, where applicable), showing them not as "dollars & fractions" but as "cents" i'm sure that would solve the problem for me last time I did it by hand and vowed there had to be an easier way!

On one laptop Excel crashes, without warning. It happens during copy/paste job (from one workbook to another). But not every time she copies something.

It is completly the same laptop like others in my company. My user has deadlines, and lot of copy/paste job.

I'm copying a column range containing numbers with varying decimals from one worksheet to another. The new worksheet and column are set to have no more than two decimals places in the cells through the formatting options.

However, numbers stay showing their original amount of decimal places, so I tried hard-coding the format with:

Sheets("Toolset Scorecard").Columns("G:G").NumberFormat = "0.00"

I have an excel sheet there i am maintaining the details of our sales invoices. Invoice no is in the column D . My concern is while entering a new number in the column D, excel should look at the entire column and give an error message if the no is already exixting in the column.

I have an Excel file that contains macros that I made. Sometimes when I open the file I do not get prompted to enable macros. I DO want to get prompted so I can enable the macros. Any idea why this happens? By the way, my macro security is greyed out so I cannot change it.

Running a worksheet with vba, at the start of the code I turn warnings off and at the very end of the code I turn them back on.When the routines complete a warning is raised:

A formula in this worksheet contains one or more invalid references.

Verify that your formulas contain a valid path, workbook, range name, and cell reference.

When I run Error Checking everything comes up clean.

Clicking on "Show Formulas" shows no formulas for there are no formulas on the sheet to show, just a chart, and clicking "Show Formulas" just turns my dates into serial numbers and screws up the display of the two comboboxes, messing the fonts and drop-down arrows, and since closing and reopening didn't revert the comboboxes back to normal I will now have to blow them away and resurrect them. I also see Show Formulas also messed up my command buttons. nice...

The only way I find to avoid the error is to turn Warnings OFF at the start of the charting routine and NEVER turn it back on.

I made certain that none of my names had any errors in them. Everything looks proper. So what next?

I fear something will create an error for me now along the lines of Murphy's Law

Let's say I have a set of values (A1:A10) where each contains a number, with a varied amount of decimal places (some may have 0, some may have 10)...how can I make a formula in cell B1 that averages A1:A10, ignoring the decimal places (rounding to the nearest whole number)

For example, if this was A1:A10

93.11

94

92.12321

95.1

96.7

98.1

99

100.03

88.6677

85.6675

If I did the Average (=AVG(A1:A10)), I would get 94.2498. But I don't want this, I want the formula to take into account the numbers rounded to the nearest whole number, meaning, I want to take the average of..

93

94

92

95

97

98

99

100

89

86

Which would give me a value of 94.3.. In this example, there isn't much of a difference, but I was simplifying the numbers for time sake

I want round off number to be with the decimals (usually decimals r discarded for round off feature). I ll be able to explain better with an example.

10.36+10.36= 20.72. If i round it up, it vl be 21.

what i am tryin is to get 21.00 after round off.

I prepare my bills in excel and after total of all products, if i get a decimal number, I would like it be rounded off to whole number with decimal and 00 at the end (eg. 21.00 instead of 21.27 or 22.00 instead of 21.77). I tried to change decimals but when I select 2 decimal places, it gives me the actual fig(eg. 21.27 instead of 21.00)

I am already using =sum for the total so cannot use another formula (as far as i know, 1 cell can have only 1 formula. Dunno if multiple can be used in a single cell).

I have a weird problem with Excel. It recognises all numbers as numbers but excluding the number 1. It is only recognised as text as well as a decimals, for example 3.4. So every time I try and add these values up it completely ignores 1 and decimals.

Have I modified a setting?

I'm converting metric to British values and have no problem with fixing the decimals when displaying the number. However, I'm wanting to CONCATENATE the unit of measure to the conversion and end up with 12 places beyond the decimal.

Entered formula is: =CONCATENATE(CONVERT(T5,"cm","in")," in")

Results in 159.055118110236 in

But = CONVERT(T5,"cm","in")

Results in 159.1 which is what I want.

Is there a way to make excel 2007 pop up a warning whenever calculation is set to manual by a macro or any other means? I have on several occasions noticed formulas not working, only to discover that calculation was set to manual without me noticing. And then I don't know how much of my work may have been afffected. This seems like a pretty vital piece of information, and I am surprised that it's not made more obvious.

I have created a worksheet to figure out (in this case) how many sets of Buckyballs i need in order to get both a square number and a cube number. There are 216 balls per set. My worksheet so far has:

Sets Number of balls Square Cube

(Number of sets) (Sets*216) (Number of balls ^0.5) (Number of balls ^(1/3))

The problem is that I am looking for the number of sets required to produce an integer in both Square and Cube columns. I have figured out that I can circle all values that are not integers. I am looking for a way to delete all rows with a decimal value or at least all cells with a decimal value and I can delete the rows from there.

I'm going through financial statements and I would like to be able to run full blown analysis on them. Most public financial reports are written so that a lot of zero's do not take up the useful space. As such (and there is a ton of this solution out there I've found), many people want to take $1,500,000,000 and turn it into 1.5M

I however, do not. I want to convert it backwards. So when something says 5.19 I would like to format it in such a way that it will read (and I can run calculations against it) as 5,190,000,000 (there are no alpha characters, there are instances where there will be negative numbers). Then I could copy this to the 17 different financial statements I've already got rock'n rolling in Excel right now.

I'm looking for a way to sort things with multiple decimals (version number). Is there a way to have something like this:

1.1

1.57

1.1.5

1.2

1.68.23

1.23.1

become:

1.1

1.1.5

1.2

1.23.1

1.57

1.68.23

I could do it all manually, but I have to work with like 400 entries at a time.

I've been trying to create an excel macro to calculate shortest route path using floyd algorithm..

Problem is, i can't figure out why this macro won't work with decimal numbers..

I'm pretty sure there's a VERY simple explanation for this..

Probably has something to do with excel's formating

See the attachment and press Run button, it won't produce the correct result, but if if you multiply all the numbers in "input" sheet by 100.
