# Cell Format: Only Numbers (no Date) With Any Amount Of Decimals

Sep 8, 2009
I need a cell to restrict the input:

-Only numbers are allowed.

-No date posible.

-Any amount of decimals (they must all be shown in the cell).

I tried using the data validation and using the IsNumber() to restrict any non numeral input. The problem with this approach is that if the user enters a date; it apprears as a date format (eg: "5.May"). I'm using an european excel, where the decimal separator is a comma instead of a point; so if a user accidentaly types "5.5" instead of "5,5"; the cell will show "5.May".

I also tried the cell format/number/number format. The problem in here is that I dont know how many decimal positions will the input number have; and I need them all to be shown.

When concatenating a text and dollar amount that is the sum of two cells, adding up to $42.90, I only get "42.9". is there a function (perhaps similar to ROUND) that will make sure concatenated numbers always have 2 decimal places?

I'm trying to clean up a very large list of last names. Only one individual cell, but that cell includes numbers, decimal points, and spaces inbetween the numbers. All I want left in the cell is the last name. I have just under 100,000 to do! How would I go about this? Using Excel 2007.....

I am looking for a VBA to sort rows which include actual numbers and text representing decomposed CTQs (or procedures in IT development)

Code:

Col A Col B

1Billing Accuracy

2Billing Time

3Credit Check Accuracy

4Credit Check Time

2.1Bill preparation

[Code]....

This is the order in which the data is copied and saved from worksheets in which they are developed. Note that 3 rows (8.1.2.1 through 8.1.2.3) are below 8.1.3 (because the three come from Worksheet 8.1.2 which came after worksheet 8.1). The first four rows came from a Top Level Worksheet. I would like to see them intermixed but in proper order.

I have a row A through N. In cell A1, have a dollar amount. In cells C1 through N1, I have different dollar amounts. In cell O1, I want to have a formula that will take the dollar figure in A1 and subtract from that amount the total of all the amounts in cells C1 thorugh N1. But I don't know how to write that formula.

Let's say I've got $100 in A1, and then in C1 through N1, I have $2, $3, $4, etc. for a total amount of $94 in cells C1 through N1. I'd like to have a formula in O1 that would show $6.

How to write up that formula in cell O1.

When I set my cell for Numbers it wants a decimal place. If I set it to 2 decimals then 100.1 (One hundred point one) would look like 100.10 (and print 100.10). If I use 100.10 (One hundred point ten) it looks and prints 100.10. If I set the decimal to one then the problem is reveresed.

Setting to General looks like 100.10 (One hundred point ten) but when using VBa to match numbers it is matched to 100.1 not 100.10.

Now I have it set to Text, but I see when I replace (find & replace) values like find 100 replace 99 the 100.10 becomes 99.1.

Incedently I have a macro that compares (and copies cell values) numbers from one sheet to another and occasionally it skips a number, always a decimal value like 100.10 or 100.1. Or any thing x.10, x.1, x.3, x.19 any combination of x.x or x.xx.

Is there a way to format so decimal numbers are decimal numbers and trailing zeros arent omitted? If the value is one decimal I want one decimal, if its two decimals I want two decimals.

I am having an issue with number format in my VBA code. The entire column of column D is format as ###.0000 (4 decimals places). There are certains cells which require zero decimal places. I am using the following bit of code, but it is not working correctly. It is still formatting the cell as 4 decimal places.

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.

is there any way by which you can alter the number of decimals in a custom format using just custom format process (ie no VBA).

For ex:

12 should appear as 12

12.1 should appear as 12.1

12.26 should appear as 12.3

Note 12 should NOT appear as 12.0

So point being adding the "m" is an irrelevance at this time - the key is to vary the decimal points essentially based on MOD(value,1) = 0

If you can (I'm really thinking you can't) let's extend it such that 12.1 should appear as 12.1 but 12.26 as 12.26

I know you can use [value>x] type rules but I'm guessing you can't use formulae in those rules ?

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 want to convert the number in a cell, G7, from a whole number into a decimal and then divide that decimal into a whole number in cell E7 and give me the quotient in cell E8.

ie:312 = 6.0

286 = 5.5

260 = 5.0

234 = 4.5

208 = 4.0

182 = 3.5

156 = 3.0

130 = 2.5

104 = 2.0

78 = 1.5

52 = 1.0

Could this also be done with the entire range of numbers from 312 to 52 and giving decimals of 6.0, 5.9, 5.8 etc.

I received a complaint from one of my colleague that he is facing sudden problem with Ms-Excel(2002)

The problem is When he feeds number 2 in to a cell it automatically converts in to 0.02. I tried using "Decrease decimal" and "format cells" option and even through uninstalling office and reinstalling a different version but the problem still continues.

I have received an excel file from an external source. Every time I change a number in a cell it reverts to a 2 decimal number. eg. I type in 8710 and it converts the value to 87.10. I have looked at the number formats, cleared the numbers format but I keep getting the same result. I have also e-mailed the file to someone else and everything is ok on their computer. Is there a property in the excel program that I need to change?

I 'm not sure why my custom function "minimize" is not working... I tried to do this with one of excels built in functions and would prefer a solution that way, but had to go the VBA route in the mean time. x and theta are paired together and I'm trying to reduce a select number of values x by their corresponding ratio.s It's corresponding ratio is determined by what degree value theta corresponds to. I wanted to do an if statement, but got confused...

=if((B2>=$J2)*(B2<$J3)) , A2*K2 , if((B2>=$J3)*(B2<$J4) , A2*$K3 , if((B3>=$J4)*(B3<$J5) , A3*$K4, .... etc. etc. etc........................

Is there a way either by VBA or manually (preferably both, if possible) to actually unite the X amount of numbers that are in a cell given the contents is alphanumeric? I'll give you the following examples to see if you can understand what I' referring to?

DATA output should be

asd67,h876 --------> 67876

2,3,ujdj5&34 -------> 23534

909k86m34 --------> 9098634

I've got a spreadsheet that's basically a large list of numbers, both whole and decimal. For example, let's say this is in cells A1-A5:

4

0.65

1.34

3

8.2

Is there a formula to get rid of all of the whole numbers but leave the decimals? (What I mean by that is I don't need 4 or 3 as they're whole, but I need the decimals to be left alone).

I know it's probably a really awkward question but I have over 2,000 lines to go through, it will take a long time to do manually.

Perhaps if it's not possible to a formula to delete entries, maybe just make all whole numbers say something like "NO", so that I can sort the column in A-Z order and delete all of the 'NO's quickly by highlighting them all together.

I've been having a problem lately with Excel automatically converting all of the cells on my spreadsheet from standard number format to dates. I've created several spreadsheets for calculations and all the cells in the number formats that I wanted. It's been saved and actually reopened and used several times. I opened it this morning and now half of numbers are now converted to dates. I've had this happen several times on several different spreadsheets. Why is this happening? Is there a setting somewhere that I need to change?

Im trying to set up an active running inventory sheet where: (A)the progressive daily sheet cells reference back to the corresponding master sheet cells fluctuating the master values, (B) the same progressive daily sheet cells reference back to a cummulative totals-cell based on whether I added or subtracted inventory. I want to make a copy of the blank "sheet 2" with all of the formulas and move it to the end of the workbook each day and enter new values which will reference back to the master sheet so that I can click on a date sheet and see an individual day's values or click on the master sheet to see the fluctuating inventory on-hand and the cummulative +/- totals of all days combined. I've got a couple hundred individual cells to reference. I've tried and tried but I can't make it work. Heres what I need to do:

I need to reference individual cells from "sheet 2,3,etc" back to a corresponding cell in a master sheet. But I need the values in each cell in "sheet 2,3,ETC" to increase or decrease the corresponding cell values in the master sheet. For example: If the value in the master sheet B5 is 200. Then in sheet 2, I enter +50 in B5, I need the master sheet cell B5 to increase by 50 to 250. I also need a way to decrease the cell value in the master sheet B5 if I enter a negative value -50 in sheet 2 B5. I also want to know if I can reference the same cell values entered in "sheet 2,3,etc cell B5" back to totals columns C5 for adding inventory or D5 for subtracting inventory in the master sheet where the master totals columns would reflect cummulative totals added or subtracted. For example: if the value in sheet 2 B5 is +50, then the value in Master sheet C5 would add 50 to a progressive total. But if the value in sheet 2 B5 is -50 then the value in master sheet D5 would add -50 to a progressive total.

I'm using excel 2003 and have a problem regarding some code.

Dit(a, b) = "=" & Hit(a, (d - 12 - e) + f) & "/" & (Pro & ".NrE.sol")

Where "Hit(a, (d - 12 - e) + f)" can be numbers with decimals.

When I run the code the result is nothing, unless the number is a number without decimals.

If I use just "Dit(a, b) = Hit(a, (d - 12 - e) + f)" it shows the right number.

Attached is a excel file that has a working formula for tracking cashier variances. I edited out names etc.

I added a new cell called Track Back on the employee search sheet.

What I want to do is only show variances for the amount of days back selected in the Track Back cell.

For example if I select the last 30 days, only the last 30 days would show up below in the sheet.

I am not sure if this is even possible based on the forumla that is already on the sheet. I couldn't figure out a way of doing it. But there are a lot of people on here much better with excel than me

I have a column in excel which gets populated in the format "2/1/1980" when copied from a different source. I want a macro to run on this column and convert this in the below format. Required format: '02-01-80 (note the ' symbol before 02 which will keep it as text)

Existing ----> Required

2/1/1980 --> '02-01-80

2/1/1970 --> '02-01-70

2/1/1983 --> '02-01-83

I need this macro to run on two columns and replace them with the required format. I can do a find and replace either in the sheet or through hard coding the VBA, but as the date format keeps growing, I would need to do this via code and hence requesting the same.

I have been struggling with my Excel 07 Date format. Nearly every time I perform a calculation, enter in a value etc in a spreadsheet my answer is returned as a date. So for example if I enter in a cell: = 5 - 4. I get the answer "1-Jan-1900" instead of 1. I have to manually set the formats to general or number if I want the correct format. The setting seems to be the default one and occurs for all workbooks I open. What can I do to change this.

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 a biologist that works with transgenic animals and I am using Excel to keep records of my mice. I would like to have a column that includes the age as calculated by the DOB of my animal on any given day.

Furthermore I would like for it to be smart enough to tell me in weeks for younger mice and months for older mice. If i do this, obviously i will need a txt string that says "x mnths" or "Y wks" or whatever.

i have come up with an if/then string that works - but for some reason it will not allow me to format the number of decimal places if i include text. here is the function:

=IF(((TODAY()-B6)/7)>12,((TODAY()-B6)/30.417) &" mnths", ((TODAY()-B6)/7) &" wks")

the B6 cell is the DOB of that particular animal.

so what this SHOULD shoot out is something to the effect of "4 mnths" or "3 wks"

depending on the age of the animal. any animal older than 12 weeks will express in function of months and any younger will be in weeks. however what i end up seeing is something like this: 5.81911431107604 mnths I dont need any where near that many dec places...and obviously this doesn't fit in any reasonably sized cell......
