I have two columns where there are dates (e.g. 11/05/2009) in a date format; I would like to change the format to `general`; but without losing the original values, i.e. I still want to see 11/05/2009, but just in `general`format. Is it possible to create a macro that will do that? I want these values to stay in the same place, i.e. if it is in cell K10, I still want to have it there - just in other format.
I have a cell that is constantly being changed from a date to a number. Excel automatically formats the cell as a date when a date is entered but if I re-enter a number it leaves the format as a date.
Is there anyway to automatically change the format back to general if a date is not entered.
I had this bit of code obviously it dosent work.
If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub If Not Intersect(Target, Range("E8:E46")) Is Nothing Then If IsDate(Target.Value) Then Target.NumberFormat = "d/mm/yy;@" Else Target.NumberFormat = "General" End If End If Cancel = True
I want to change the look of the text in a cell to be highlighted in some way, preferably bold. Ex. if I put a1 in the cell, it does a VLOOKUP to get the value. Is there a way to have the a1 change to A1 on enter?
I have a procedure that allows me to view and make changes to data in a table. I list the current values for the item in one column and use simple formula to copy that value to another column where if there are changes that need to be made, the formula is simply overwritten. The Macro is then selected using a command button and the formulas are all overwritten using copy/paste values to keep from writing out the formula to the data table. These values are then all written back to the data table, current values are overwritten with whatever is in the update column, new data or old data.
I have one cell out of 48 that has decided to march to the tune of a different drummer. The format changes from General to Text and the formula written from the macro is what shows up in the cell instead of the value of the formula. Never a big disciplinarian, I have to wonder if I have been too lenient on the cell and this defiance is the price I have to pay.
The sheet is protected only allowing entry into the cells available for update.
Here is the bit of code that affects this cell (starting from a format of General:
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)
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.
Can this be done automatically in a worksheet using the custom cell format function??.... because then it wud get formatted as necessary whenever someone enters a vehicle no. in that particular column.
I want to create a custom format for a cell for entering in "cup measurements". I want to be able to type in 5, 1/4, 1/16, etc. and have the word "cups" appear after the number in that cell. I formatted the cell to say the word cups after typing in the numbers in my cell using the code "cups".
ex: 0 "cups" works fine for whole number
so then if i change it to 0/0 "cups" is works great for only 1/8 but not 1/16 or whole numbers. Then I looked at other custom codes that already existed in my formatts so I attempted to try this code which I just kinda came up with
well it isn't doing what I want and If I use the 0/00 "cups code and I type in 4 cups the cell then says 4/01 cups.
What does my code need to be for me to show whole numbers and and size fraction without having it look weird?
Data in a cell is formatted in h:mm which is truly a result of a calculation of # of hours & minutes detained at a location. D
Data is result of microstrategy query so result is
Cell is formatted as custom h:mm, but there is actually a fictitious date of 1/1/1900 defaulting in front of h:mm when double clicking into cell or viewing in fx field above. How do I get rid of that date which is inhibiting me from converting 17:08 to minutes by using the formula of =TEXT(L3,"[m]")
In cell 'I6' if I enter the text "Balance" I would like it to display as "Actual" but if any other text is entered I would like it to display the text entered. How to do this using custom cell formatting. (Currently on Excel 2010).
I have a workbook in Excel 2007 with several sheets imported from other workbooks. In the course of this, one of them has brought several custom cell styles with it and I would like to be rid of them, as they clutter up the cell styles gallery.
Most of them were cooperative and deleted simply enough by right-clicking and selecting 'Delete', but one is proving a little more stubborn.
When I mouse over it, it plays the 'alert' noise (the 'bink' you get when Excel wants to alert you to something) and then nothing happens. There is no noticeable change to text or cell, as there should be thanks to 2007's previewing ability. Trying to apply the style results in the message
"Style ' 386grabber=VGA.3GR ' not found."
(the line breaks are present in the message and seem to be because the style name actually has character returns as the first and last characters).
Is there a way to delete this style, or am I going to have to resign myself to having an annoying noise every time I try to apply styles
I am trying to write a custom cell format that would allow me to replace the comma with a space after the thousand's place. Therefore, 1 million would look like: 1 000 000 instead of 1,000,000. I do NOT want to change my regional settings to accomplish this.
When I write ### ### ### it accomplishes this, however, there is one small glitch. When you apply an "underline" you get the following result:
The attached file contains data. In Worksheet 1 (and also 2 and 3) column B2 shows day, month, year, hours, minutes and seconds. I was hoping to convert this to just Hours and Minutes, but all the usual methods using Custom Format does not work. This leads me to think that its in TEXT format. How can I change Column B2 to Hours and Minutes?
I would like to have a single button that changes a range of cells from the USD to EURO to perhaps CAD symbol. Can this operation be performed, such that if I start in dollars, and I click the button once, it shifts by range to EURO (not formulas...just symbol)...and then if I click the same button again, it goes to CAD, and then back to USD with a third click?
Macro Based on an input cell’s (e.g. B12) setting of “yes” or “no”, format several other cells (e.g. B20:G20, B23:F23, C26:J26) as follows: keep the existing yellow shading if input cell is “yes”, change to grey shading if input cell is “no”. I would like this macro to run automatically whenever the input cell value is changed.
I want to convert a range of cells to "number" format from text, and then refer to them in a formula that's somewhere else. However, if I do the format from VBA, I can't get the change to be reflected without the following
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.
