# Convert To Numeric In VBA

## 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.

Find Numeric Codes In A Column And Replace In Vba
I am using the following vba code to find numeric codes in a column and replace them with the same code along with descriptive text:

Range("Q:Q").Select
Selection.Replace What:="11", Replacement:="11 - GSA"
Selection.Replace What:="10", Replacement:="10 - NYS OGS"
Selection.Replace What:="1", Replacement:=" 1 - Dist Sale"
Selection.Replace What:="2", Replacement:=" 2 - Direct Sale"
Selection.Replace What:="3", Replacement:=" 3 - No Sale: Warranty Exchange"
The problem as you might already see is that when the replacement of "1" happens, Excel will replace the 1 in the 10 and 11. Of course I want to only replace the number 1. Is there a better way to code this operation?

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

VBA To Convert To Number
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:

VBA Convert Format
I have a spreadsheet that in various cells have numbers that have been been formated as text and have a leading zero and therefore displays the green flag in the corner of the cell. I want to change them to number format and clear the green flag.

Cells.NumberFormat = "0.00"

doesn't seem to work. whist it shows the format as number it still leaves the green flag and the leading zero.

VBA Code To Convert Dates
I received a solution to a question recently whereby I was instructed to use the text-to columns function to solve a problem I was having with a column of dates.

Convert Dates To Another Format

The solution provided was;
Select Data > Text to Columns > Next > Next > Column Data Format > Date.

The solution works fine when performed manually but if you perform this function while recording a macro, the crucial piece that changes the date output is not captured by the recorder so when you run the macro nothing happens.

To expand on how I recorded it, after starting the text to column dialogue and pressing Next twice, the dialog provides me with a drop down selector where I am able to change the date format from the default DMY to the desired MDY which - when selected manually - fixes my problem. However, when I record a macro while performing this action the date format choice I made is not being recorded in the macro output so when I try running the macro later on the original data, nothing happens.

The recorded macro ends up looking like this; ....

VBA Code Convert To PDF
This is my first time posting and though my knowledge of excel is very good - I sue it daily my knowledg of VBA is restricted to a macro that I've borrowed from former job. It basically puts data from a source file into a template file (both excel) and saves teh template with the specified filename. It does this for 40 different schools with different data. I send out these reports to schools as PDF reports and I'd like the VBA code to convert the files autmatically, within the same macro that creates them. So basically after running the macro I want to end up with 40 excel files and 40 pdf files.

VBA Userform – Convert Number To Percent
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

Import, Format, Convert, Print VBA Module
I was wondering if its possible to build a module that would do the following: a) import a txt file to excel formatting it as text.

b) then in column D would remove the preceding space.

c) then convert data in D according to a separately kept Conversion table (or conversion table could be integrated into the code) and print conversion results into column J.

d) the last step is to print/copy columns A and J so that it looks like the final table in Sheet2.
Here are files attached.

sample data.txt
sample data.xls
conversion table.xls

To summarize I need to go from a txt file like the one attached and arrive at the table in Sheet2 of xls file attached.

Convert Mid & Find Function To Vba
I am writing VBA code that dissects a cell which always contains some alphanumeric characters a colon ":", some more characters, another colon ":" and some more characters.

For Example this is what is in my cell "Deposit:93121:Southern California"

what I need is to cut and paste everything that is located after the 2nd colon ":"

Say that my cell is D433 and in non-vba world I can chop off the first part of the cell to the left of the first colon ":" by using the following formula:

=MID(D433, FIND(":",D433)+1,50)

assuming there are less than 50 characters in my cell, which is a safe number, then I cut and pastespecial this cell as values into the same cell and repeat that same formula and voila, what remains in cell D433 is what I am looking for "Southern California"

how can I replicate this surgical process in VBA, is there a way to combine this process in one command on any given target cell?

Convert Text Delimited File To .xls File Using Vba
how to word it but if someone understands then please help. I have two excel data files namely Book1.xls & Book2.xls. Both files have different data in it. Both files contain macros. When these macros run the files become **FINALIZED** version.

Originally, I get the above files in my email as txt. attachments. I then move these two txt files to my desktop in a folder called Folder-1. Then I open these files as an Excel and save them.

Basically, I need to know if two txt files are sitting in a folder-1 on my desktop. What can I do or what can I clik that....those two text files get converted into excel automatically, including running that macro I talked about in the above paragrah.

To put it differently, if I have two txt files Book1.txt, Book2.txt in a folder, how can I automatically create an excel **FINALIZED**version which sits right next to their txt version.

Does Anyone Have The VBA Code To "Convert To Number"
Does anyone know the code to perform the function "Convert to number"? I have a problem where I need to change some "numbers" from an output sheet that are actually "text" format to actual numbers. Just changing the format to "Number" doesn't work - it may have to do with the fact that the numbers/text includes commas but I'm not sure why. But I have tried several times to change the format, and even though the format shows as being changed, code still doesn't recognize the characters as numbers. So I want to "convert to number" that excel does. With the numbers output the way they are as text, I get that warning (Green triangle) and I get the option to "Convert to Number". That works, so I tried to record the macro to see what the code would be, but that operation doesn't record.

Convert A String To A "real" String (vba)

Numeric Combination
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.

Getting Last Numeric Value In A Range
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?

Return The Last Numeric Value Above Zero
I have this issue and I can´t 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 I´m 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.

How To Represent Numeric Wildcard
In column A I have a sentence.

I would like column B to return TRUE if the sentence in column A contains any of the string below:

AAA¤
BBB¤
CCC¤
DDD¤
EEE¤
FFF¤
GGG¤
HHH¤
III¤
JJJ¤

Where ¤ is any number from 1 to 9.

Is there a formula to do this, preferably without having to list all the possible combination of the list e.g. AAA1, AAA2, AAA3, and so on?

Separating Alpha And Numeric
I have data in column with combination of alpha-numeric like "Member # 308166 RCI Number 4801-60436". can I split this without using copy and paste?

Find Value Between Numeric Range
I have been looking for code samples using Find to search for values within or outside a given value range. I haven't come across any that are obvious to me so is it possible?

I am using a piece of code that jindon here on Ozgrid has so kindly been helping me with. The code below searches for a certain value and returns that value when found along with other values. I am trying to adapt this same code to work on other searches I perform.

An example I am looking at is finding any values in column "K" which are either less than 700 or greater than 1300. How would I alter this code to perform a search like that?

Option Explicit
Sub test7()
Dim r As Range, ff As String, txt As String
With Sheets("Sheet1")
Set r = .Columns("av").Find("D00025", , xlValues, xlWhole)
If Not r Is Nothing Then
ff = r.Address
Do

Restricting Cells To Numeric Only
I currently have an input screen where users copy and paste data from a seperate spreadsheet into a range of cells B11:B15 in the input screen.
A macro is assigned to then extract this data and paste into the recording sheets behind.

I would like to format somehow cells B11:B15 so that only numeric entries can be pasted in and not any alpha including #.

Getting Rid Of Every Non Numeric Characters
I have a cell that contains BYO CUSTOMER XYZ 76458992

I want the cell next to it to remove all of the letters and display only 76458992.

Extract Numeric Characters
I have a column contains Postal Adress in more than 5000 rows. Column contains Door Number, Area, City and Zip code. I need to separate "Zip code" alone in next coulmn. Zip code (of India) will be in six digits like "600083" also some cases contain space in middle of zip code like "600 083" (after 3 digits). Is there any way to do this without doing cut & paste?

Finding First Non-numeric Cell
Sub Test2()
'From the top down
If IsEmpty(Range("A1")) Then
Range("A1").Select
Else
Range("A1").End(xlDown).Offset(1, 0).Select
End If
End Sub

I would like to change this to find the first non-numeric cell (technically the column i'm searching is dates, but i assume those are seen as being numerical). I tried to change this line:

If IsEmpty(Range("A1")) Then
TO
If IsNumeric(Range("A1")) Then

But as many of you know it didn't work (i also tried variations of IsNumeric(Range("A1")).Value=True

Date Format From Numeric
I get data in csv format from an external source.
The problem is that it gives me dates in a lousy format of ddmmyy

For example 120706 or 050606.

Excel doesn't recognise them as dates and just displays them as numbers (120706 or 50606)

I want to see them as dates, so I select the column and change the format to date
BUT
excel sees my "numbers" as a julian date, and jumps me forward to the dates 24/06/2230 and 20/07/2038 respectively.

How Do I Replace Numeric Values Only
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?

Alpha Numeric Sort
I'm doing a sort of product codes which are of different character length with some numeric and others alpha-numeric.

A small section of the sort is below.

I want it to end up like this:

4040
4040A
4040B
4040BTO
4040C
4040E
40400
40409
41402
42402
42402A
43400

But the sort ends up like this:

4040
40400
40409
4040A
4040B
4040BTO
4040C
4040E
41402
42402
42402A
43400

In other words, I would like product codes where the last character is a letter to be sorted ahead of product codes where the last character is a digit. The way Excel is normally set up, it sorts in just the opposite way.

Numeric Alpha Sort
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.

Extract Numeric Value From Cell
I have compiled data from accross my branches, where in a 14 digit voucher number has been fed into the system along with data. The problem is that there is no unique format as this voucher number is fed in free format area.
.
i need to extract this consignment number from the cell value. for example,
A10 Contains "voucher No 12345678901234 paid"
A11 Contains "spl cons 15454563218921 thru person"
A12 Contains "incurred for recurring exp 45678932145826"
.
writing a macro to extract this 14 digit voucher number.
.

Calculating Non-Numeric Cells
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
1004 LATE
1005 12-Aug-2008
1005 LATE

I need a formula that will calculate how many "LATE" cells there are.

Force Numeric Input
I want to force the user to input a numeric value in a textbox and for a message to pop up if a letter is typed, what code do i use?

Numeric Up Down Tool On Userform
Do we have NumericUpDown Tool Control in MS Excel 2003 that can be employed on a userform. The one similar to the numericupdown of VB.NET. I want to restrict user to input only numerals. Though I can use IsNumeric Validation in Textbox_Change event but still I was curious to know if there is any other in-built function in MS Excel.

Display Alphabet Before Numeric
Col A has a list, mixture of letters and numbers. By default excel sorts the numbers in order and then the letters. How do I display the letters A-Z first and then the numbers?!

Numeric Symbols In Formulas
some times we use numeric symbols with formulas such as subtotal(109,a1:a100)
109 here meaning the visible cells only. well, Iwant to know if other numeric symbols also used in formulas !
