# Convert To Numeric In VBA

Jan 1, 2009

I have some data fields (in yrs and days) as follows:

a = 5y020d
b = 2y225d
c = 12y003d

I need to add these three data items together in VBA to get a total yrs and days. The answer is then returned to an excel worksheet (sheet 1)

I have tried this:

a = LEFT (a, 1)

b = LEFT (b, 1)

this gives me the 5 and the 2 for the yrs but I am not sure how to get the days (20 and 225)

also, if I try and sum, i.e. a + b and then return to the spreadsheet i get 52 as the answer rather than 7 which is the answer i need. How can i convert this in the VBA correctly.

Jun 4, 2014

I have a column of several thousand entries listed as numeric with a scientific symbol eg.

1.4mSv
19.53mSv/1mSv (some have a mix and or alpha/numeric range)

## Convert Text To Numeric Value?

May 9, 2014

Wondering if it is possible to convert a string into a numeric value. The idea is that if you have a list of names, if you could add up the numeric values of the names together and hide it at the end of the list. Then if a name on the list changes, then so will that value.

I know how to do this in C or Python, but I am rather new to the syntax of VBA.

## Convert Numeric Value To Words Without VBA

Note : It works for a value having two decimal places. It truncates if you have a value having more than two decimal places. Note : The following formula can convert amount one less than 1 trillion into words.

For example : \$ 1,250.50 = One Thousand Two Hundred Fifty Dollars and Fifty Cents

\$1,250.50 is placed in cell B5.

Paste the following formula in cell C5.

## Finding A Non Numeric (or Numeric) Character In A Field

Sep 1, 2008

I have a few thousand products codes (i.e ABCD123BLA08 or SHU267BLA) They are non standardised in length or structure. I wish to pull out everything upto the end of the third numeric digit.( ie ABCD123 and SHU267) I cannot use left as they are all different lengths. Ideally i would serach for a non numeric char after the number then use left up to that point. Search can't do this, FIND can't do this.

Summary
ABCD123BLA08 would be ABCD123
SHU246BLU would be SHU246
I147ORT08-12 would be I147

## If Statement Numeric Or Alpha Numeric

Jan 12, 2010

I have a column that has cells with values as

19352510
C084111X AA
24253081
A001290U AA
19599291
48413321

I want to write an If Statement is a column next to each entry that denotes two options either Broker or Agent. Where the code is say 19352510 then Broker and where it is say C084111X AA then Agent.

Broker codes will never contain a letter. The Agent code will always start and finish with a letter.

## Sum Of The Numeric String?

Aug 6, 2014

Given 5 rows in column A, I have strings that has the word 'Qty' and some none. For any string that has the word 'Qty', I want the numeric value before it. For string that doesn't have the word 'Qty', I want it to be 1. My question is, how should I added the numeric string without a helper column?

Column A
Desired Qty to Take

some string name and ended with (4 Qty)
4

some string name without the word Qty
1

[code]....

In the above example, I would like to have an answer in say cell B1 to be 15

## Using 'Now()' As A Numeric String

Oct 1, 2008

I am trying to create what should be a unique string.

I figured the easiest way to do this would be to use the value given by Now().

If on a spreadsheet I put in a cell: =Now() and then format that cell as 'General' it gives me the number I am trying to get programatically.

## Getting Last Numeric Value In A Range

Jul 9, 2008

I am using this formula: =INDEX(A5:Z5,MATCH(9.99999999999999E+307,A5:Z5)).

All the cells in the range A5:Z5 contain SUM formulas for adjoining cells in rows 1 to 4. The above INDEX formula doesn't work in this situation because many of the formulas in row 5 return a 0 value because there is no data in rows 1 to 4. If I delete the formula from all these cells, the INDEX function works OK, but I'd rather not do this.

Is it possible to amend this formula so that it returns that last numeric value >0?

## Numeric Combination

Nov 15, 2008

on combination of numbers

on the extreme left column, i have 23 numbers from A1:A23. All 23 numbers are in the form of 4 digit. For example A1 there is 1234, i need to display the possible 3 digit combination of this in the same row (like say 123,124,234,134 in B1,C1,D1 AND E1).

Another example in A2 there is 3545, i need to display 354,455,355 in the same row in B2,C2,D2

I need to perform this operation for the 23 numbers on the extreme left row. Can give me some hint on the code.

## Return The Last Numeric Value Above Zero

Oct 15, 2007

I have this issue and I canīt find the solution .
I need to have sometihng that copies only the last ( cell in the right) non-zero cell and past in the same row.
This macro or VBA code needs to search the row, and paste in a column the value of the last cell in the right.
The sheet Iīm working have lots of rows and lots of columns. The columns are dates. And I need to have just a column in the end with the most recent data of each row.

## Automatic Numeric Sequence

Jan 15, 2013

I have a dynamic worksheet containing a variable number of rows that I would like to have automatically numbered when I run my VBA script. I used Dave Hawley's code as follows, with a modification to begin at cell A2, but it doesn't seem to work, as it only numbers cell A2 and not the rest.

VB:
With Range("A2")
.Value = 1
.AutoFill .Range("A2:A" & RowTotal), xlLinearTrend
.Range("A" & RowTotal + 1).Clear
End With

RowTotal is just a variable that holds the results of a simple last row finder. How to make this work?

## Calculating Non-Numeric Cells

Nov 11, 2008

I need to find the number of cells containing a specific word. Here's an example:

Site # Visit
1001 12-Aug-2008
1001 LATE
1002 08-Jul-2008
1003 09-Aug-2008

## How Do I Replace Numeric Values Only

Jan 20, 2009

When using the replace rule in Excel, you can use "?" to represent a standard variable, e.g. if you had the text "Bottle 100g", and you set the replace rule as "?g", it would delete the "g" and the four characters before it, leaving you with "Bottle".

However, if I have lots of replace rules to make in a file, and I only want to eliminate the numerical values before a letter, how do I go about doing this?

For example, if I had the text "Dog food 10g", and I made a replace rule "??g", it would leave me with " food ". What I would really need, is a way of taking away the numeric values before the "g", which would give me "Dog food".

Therefore, is there a unique identifier for numeric and/or text values?

## Numeric Alpha Sort

Mar 5, 2009

I have an application where there is a column A with values of F1 through
F83. There is data in columns B,C,D,E,F AND G.

From time to time there is an addition in column A, the value being F1A or F2A etc.
The rows then have to be sorted so that F1A follows F1 and the next row would start with F2 rather than F10.
