I've just imported a file into a UK version of Excel from a German made datalogger. The decimal points (which should look like this 0.0) all appear as comas (0,0) with the result that Excel can't read them.

I have just started a job and given a task to input some timesheets that were done manually. The problem is that I used decimal point instead of the colon. When I try and format the cells I do not get the real time.

I need to convert a column of numbers currently formatted with 2 decimal places e.g. 112.12 to 4 decimal places (without the decimal point). I need the end result to be 1121200. I've tried a few different suggestions given on the forum previously but can't seem to retain the 4 decimal places that I require.

I am trying to create a unique sample code by putting together the values of other cells that a user will input. It's all working well apart from the last part, where I am trying to include a decimal number. I want the decimal number to appear without the central "." and in a four digit format. e.g. 2.5 would appear as 0250, 14.25 would appear as 1425. This is the formlua I am using currently:

However, where the value of H4 is 2.5, I am getting a result of 0303 (I've put this part in bold). I have attached a small spreadsheet to aid understanding.

I have a UserForm with different text boxes, everytime I put a number with decimals (ex 100.23) on a Textbox and I want that number to be shown on a excel cell, VBA changes the "dot" for a "comma" so excel understands it as an integer number 100,23 (10023).

During finalization I have to convert the numbers into millions. But due to rounding factor, the total doesnot match with the displayed fig. how can I sum only upto two digits of the fig? A sample file is attached.

I need to add a decimal point to a column of numbers. For example, where it says 126 needs to be changed to 1.26, 3035 changed to 30.35, 13593 to 135.93 and so on. Can this be done automatically or with a formula?

This problem just appeared recently, as if out of the blue, and it seems to affect all of my old work sheets as well as new ones. I am using 2002 version. When I input any number in any cell the program automatically inserts a decimal point. Thus 1 becomes .1, 12 becomes 1.2, 123 becomes 12.3 etc. I have tried formatting the cells to "general" and to to "number" with no change. The thing that really gets me is that old saved worksheets exhibit this behavior as well. I can work around the problem by inputting 1. or 12. which then gives me the entry I am after but I've never needed to do this before.

a1 -> 2.333.33 "i want this to return as 2,333.33"

a2 -> 33.33 "i want this to retun 33.33"

a3 -> 45.555.55 "i want this to return 45,555.55"

i already asked this question and someone gave me this code -> substitute(a1,".","",1) which return to 2333.33 but the problem is for the a2 if i use the code it will return as "3333" which read as "3,333".

Is there any way that we can determine if the values have two decimal point before it will run the command?

I am looking for a formula that will calculate the number after the decimal point, for example: A1=0.4656162 I want to multiple the number after the decimal point by A2=60, is there a simple formula to enable me to do this as I have to perform this across a large number of cells.

Is there any way to change the decimal point from the usual period symbol (.) to a comma (,). The reason being, i have a structural design spreadsheet and the new terminology is just so, changed from 00.00 to 00,00 I have tried cell formatting but it just uses a comma (,) for numbers in their thousand and it wont do what i need.

I have an UserForm, where I have several text boxes. One of these textboxes should be entered with decimals. I have been able to cope with the declarations, and set the variable as Variant. However, is it possible to prevent the user inserting "," instead of "."? Alternatively, automatically change "," to "."?

I am having problems applying custom format to numbers that need to be formatted. custom format use is 0",00". When I apply the custom format above to whole numbers, I achieve the results I want:

0.00 20.00 40.00

becomes

0,00 20,00 40,00

However, when I apply to numbers with decimal places

0.20.......

how I can change the custom format so that the period is replaced with a comma but the decimal values are preserved?

How to make calculation in excel without decimal point automatically. I use this formula =MIN(360,30*F42/360) . Total displayed 144. By right 142 DAY FORMULA RESULT BY RIGHT

So how can it be that Excel calculates Pi()/90*90=Pi(); but Pi()/90+Pi()/90+Pi()/90......90 times is 0.000000000000033527. And why is the number zero out to 14 decimal places not being returned as 0?

I need to know exactly when a series of sequentially increasing radians = Pi(). The length of the series is dynamic and can be as few as 6 and as many as 120. And right now Excel is not cooperating.

Here is what excel thinks Pi()/90+Pi()/90+....90 times =

3.14159265358980000000

3.14159265358979000000 (this is how excel displays Pi() out to 20 decimal places)

So Excel thinks the two numbers are not equal to each other, and what could be more interesting is that Excel thinks the difference is

0.00000000000000355271

Even after copying and pasting both numbers as values out to 20 decimals. Excel still thinks the difference is 0.00000000000000355271

How is that possible?

I have Excel 2013. Is there some sort of bug here? I had posted earlier about major headaches when using natural log. Random cells keep getting forced to 14, 15, sometimes 16 or 17 decimals. No rhyme no reason. I can custom format every cell in worksheet to 2 decimals, and as soon as I hit F9... ############# all over the place. At least with Pi() the decimals are under control, but the math is not right. Pi()/x + Pi()/x.....x times = Pi().

Is there anyway to be able to bring decimal point forward without affecting the numbers using any formatting, which will still be there even after refreshing the query.

I have a column that has values ranging anywhere from 1 to 999,999 and I need a way in vba to take whatever value is in the specified cell and place a decimal point at the far left. Example:

change 175526.34 to .17552634 change 376.1 to .3761 change 22987.254 to .22978254

when the code is run I need the selected number to begin with the decimal point. See, the tricky part is that the length of the number varies and I cant just divide by X to shift so many places to the left..

Is it possible to Conditionally Format using the (Custom) Data Validation Tool one or both of the following conditions:-

1. Force the user to enter the correct decimal point position for a given currency :-

The are 3 different decimal point locations location's - 0.87624 / 123.123 / 1273.00 There are always 6 numerals We have a table to lookup which specifies where the decimal point is on all currencies

CURRENCY AUDUSD< List is linked to a table Price - High 0.87744< Decimal point dependant on chosen currency pair chosen Price - Low 0.86596 Price - Close 0.86823

2. As above but numbers once entered will be formatted accordingly to the correct decimal place to the corresponding currency

I have a simple spreadsheet that allows the user to enter a dimension in metric or inches. I want to display the other units in the adjacent cell. In cell A1, the units are "Metric" or "Inch" in a pull down list. In cell A2, the value is entered.

In cell A3 i want to show the value in the other units. So if A1 is Metric, then take A2 and divide by 25.4. And if A1 is Inch, then take A2 and multiply by 25.4. Also, if A1 is Inch, then display 2 decimal places in A3, and if A1 is Metric, then display 3 decimal places in A3. Is this possible?

I am new to Excel but not programming and I am looking for a recommendation for the following. I have a spreadsheet that simply takes the length and width of an area and computes the square feet and yardage and other sundry items. I am entering the feet/inches as follows:

Example: 11.3 (equals 11/ft 3/inches)

The correct decimal conversion should be 11.25 but, obviously, it does not know that the number to the right of the decimal point is an indicator of inches. (ex.: .5=.42, .7=.58, .9=.75, .11=.92)

I have approached this from the stand point of an IF condition, finding the position of the "." and grabbing everything to the right (+1) but I understand that the limitation is 7 nested IFs.

Can someone get me kick-started on what the best approach would be to get my entry to convert to the true decimal equivalent? Currently, I am simply doing the conversion from memory but I would rather automate this sometimes errant approach.

This is a continuance of the Q and A below. Except the answer below converted a decimal like 1.44 to and answer like 1' 5.28". except the final format I am after requires the 5.28" to be fractional such as: 1' - 5 1/4"

I have an excel sheet with a row of numbers example below. These numbers represent the length of time that a telephone call was. The problem is they are decimal numbers (units of 100) but they represent seconds and minutes of a phone call which change up one number when the seconds hit 60 ...

we work with both Lotus 123 and Excel 2003. Lotus will be gone next year, but for now, the official mean to publish our reports is Lotus. With my work, I copy/paste a Lotus page to Excel. I use the following macro to convert Lotus format numbers (which Excel considers as text) to real numbers:

Sub ForceToNumber() Dim wSheet As Worksheet For Each wSheet In Worksheets With wSheet . Range("IV65536") = vbNullString .Range("IV65536").Copy .UsedRange.PasteSpecial xlPasteValues, xlPasteSpecialOperationAdd End With Next wSheet End Sub

Source : http://www.ozgrid.com/forum/showthre...087#post184087. The problem is that I need to send back this data in Lotus. Excel considers decimal numbers with a coma as real numbers and numbers with a dot as a text. This previous macro fixes that. However, Lotus works the other way. Only numbers with a dot are considered real numbers. So I would need to find a way to code a macro that converts any numbers in the Excel sheet to a number with a dot. It's a bit like doing the opposite operation.

I have a pivot table as shown below which is pretty straight forward however I am trying to create a macro that will automatically change the point name to match the point name in column E then copy that resulting dispaly to another sheet then pick the next point name in line and do the same thing and repeat for 50 rows, so my end result will be 50 pivot tables ready for printing. I can do this manually but I am trying to make it automatic...BTW the point names in column E change everyday but the pivot table supports the name changes.

Option Explicit Sub PointName() Dim Ws As Worksheet Dim Rng As Range, Cel As Range

Set Ws = ActiveSheet Set Rng = Range(Cells(2, 7), Cells(Rows.Count, 7).End(xlUp))

For Each Cel In Rng Ws.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("Point Name").CurrentPage = Cel & " "

Ws.Columns("A:B").Copy Sheets.Add With ActiveSheet .Paste .Name = Trim(Cel) .Range("A1").Select End With Next Ws.Activate End Sub

I turned it off for a while and when I turned it back on I am getting an error Unable to set the _Default property of the PivotItem class

Debugger is highlighting

Ws.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("Point Name").CurrentPage = Cel & " "
