Data 'is Not Number' Character Query

Oct 5, 2009

They have a list of data numbers which are yy/#####/@@@@@ (2digit year/casenumber/alphanumeric code). Where some people have typed in the code wrong (6 or more digits in case number) we want to know is there a way of doing this.

Ideally I want something that says "If 9th character is a slash then yes, if not no" or "if 9th character is a number then yes, if not, no".

Example of data is (where we want third option highlighted as erroneous (6 not 5 numbers in middle)

Excel 2007 :: Data Validation Query - Sum Of Two Cells Less Than A Set Number?

Jan 6, 2014

I am wanting to create a validation rule so when two cells are added the together the answer must be less than or equal to 14:00 - otherwise a message box will appear

So for example if H7+I7 gives an answer of 13:00 in J7, that's OK, but if the answer is 15:00, the error box will appear. I know that data validation doesnt work on a cell that already has a formula so I'm hoping to use K7 for the Validation and then hide the column

Create An Conection With MS QUERY To A Csv And Query Data

Sep 6, 2008

I have a csv file on another drive on the network that i need to query. I believe that ms query would be the best way.

I haven't a clue how to do this and i need it to be explained to me in general terms with words of one syllable!

Number Format To Display 20 Character Long Number?

Jul 9, 2014

I received a request from a coworker regarding custom formatting some numbers in his spreadsheet. Those numbers are serial numbers of 20 characters long. Sometimes in my files I use this custom number formatting ###0 and its enough for the data I handle. But when I tried to use it in his spreadsheet, the following shows:


The cell must look like this: 08456891070060510302

The reason to have it like this is due to a Delivery Program requirement to deliver Set-top Units for repair. The Delivery Program do not recognize other format than the above. My coworker takes the data from a spreadsheet, and the spreadsheet needs a custom number format to display the correct number.

find a custom number format to be able to display as my coworker need it??

Determine If Last Character Is Number Or Not A Number

Oct 23, 2008

I'm trying to determine if the last character of a cell is a number or not a number. So in a cell I may have a string like:




If the last character is not a number I want the letter returned. So I thought I could use a formula like: =IF(NOT(ISNUMBER(RIGHT(D88,1))), RIGHT(D88,1),""). However for the string ZXC123 it still returns '3' so anyone have any ideas how I can do this?

Test To See If A Character Is A Number

Feb 6, 2009

I have a number of entries in column A.
The format is:

A1 B680192 Middle School
A2 Office Building Project

and so on;

I want to test if char.s 2 through 7 are numbers.

I can seperate one char at a time and use CODE function to check if the result is between 48 and 57.

I know how to split all six char.s at a time e.g. 680192, but I don't know how to test to see if it is a number?

ISNUMBER function doesn't work.

If I can do it with excel function, it would be better. If VBA has to be used, so be it.

Character To Number Conversion

Aug 15, 2006

I have a spreadsheet which I automatically generate using VBA. One of the columns lists account numbers. After the macro is complete, the account numbers are non-numeric and left justified. However if I select one of the account numbers by clicking on its cell, and then edit the account number in the formula window, it changes the cells property to numeric and right-justifies the cell.

Is Nth Character Text Or Number

Aug 16, 2007

Cell B23:687968307=ISTEXT(MID(RIGHT(B23,3),1,1))TRUE
Cell B24:C8796B07=ISTEXT(MID(RIGHT(B24,3),1,1))TRUE

I'm trying to test whether the third last character (3 and B) is a text or not.

As you can see, the reslts are both TRUE, but I'm expecting to see that the first one should be FALSE, as '3' is a number right?

Likewise, if I replace the formula with ISNUMBER instead of ISTEXT, the results are both FALSE, but shouldn't the first one be TRUE, again, because the '3' is a number?

Have I missed something in the formula, or is there a better way of expressing this formula?

Return Number Before Alpha Character

Feb 12, 2008

I have an Excel file that quiries Google for driving distance (someone helped me with this.) It returns the correct miles but has some 'extra' characters. Example:
31.1&nb or 886&nbs

So the answer always has &nbs after the mileage. I tried the following function which works when there is a decimal but fails when there is not. =REPLACE(MID(E2,1,SEARCH("&",E2,1)-1),SEARCH(".",E2,1),1,","). Can this be done with a function or must it be VB script? Which is fine if it is.

Displaying Web Query As A Number

Jul 7, 2014

So i'm receiving a web query on a sheet that is taken from a table off the web. When this data gets extracted into the sheet, it populates as "$xxxM" in order to show that it is a certain million dollars. The problem is, I need to total all these numbers to display at the bottom of my report. So essentially, I am trying to configure web query to display as "number" as opposed to "$numberM" so it is easier to total.

Using 'left' Function To Take Out Number Upto A Certain Character

Pretty sure this has been asked but have searched the forum to no avail, but I need to extract the numbers from a value which has a letter on the end.

or 2p I need the 2

I have sooooo many values ranging in numbers of digits, so just basic left(A1,2) won't work, I'm sure I've seen a search or find function but don't know how to use them!

"12345678(5 extra space characters here)"
"123456(7 extra space characters)"

Formula To Extract Undefined Number Of Names Following Specified Character

Apr 8, 2014

I need a formula which can pick out the names from string of text, each name follows "-->", the number of names in each cell differs and is undefined. The result needs to be posted into each column following these cells.

An example of a cell is below:

Dermine Value Of Cell Number Preceeded With Text Character

Apr 1, 2008

I've tried and tried and I con not get it right. In A1 I have a validation, it onlu allows to enter a 6-digit number between 100000-899999 or the same numbers with the letter I in front, that is I100000-I899999. Now I need a macro to check that cell F2 is not empty if the value in Cell A1 is above 299999. And this should also apply if there is an I in front. The function for the validation is:


The code I have is:

If Range("A" & i).Value > "299999" Then
If Range("F" & i).Value = "" Then
MsgBox "Indicator missing on row " & i
Application.Goto .Range("F" & i)
Exit Sub
End If
End If

It works wor the nubers without the I but it demands a vlaue in F on all I numbers and I only want it for >I299999.

Pull/Extract Number Before Specific Character In Cells

Jun 10, 2008

What formula or function truncates a text field that is in the following consistent format:

number. name
ie. 3. Super Bella
and 150. Taoist

I wish to truncate the field so I have just the integer without the dot, space or word(s).

Tried Len, Left & Replace but they require a specific number of characters. Since the number can be 1 to 3 digits long, this doesn't work.

Converting Number To Text From Refreshed Query

Jan 29, 2009

I am importing data from an access database that is continually refreshed. Some of the data that is returned to my Excel sheet is in binary, where a "0" represents an unchecked box on the database program and a "1" represents the same box, but with a check mark. I want to change the data so that when it is updated on my Excel sheet it is converted to text as either "Yes" or "No" instead of "1" or "0", respectively. I'm sure this is pretty elementary stuff but I have tried VBE and cell formulas and can't come up with an answer.

Import Web Query Looses Number Format

Aug 29, 2006

I am wanting to use Excel to perform a web query into an online database our company uses. One of the columns I am wanting to import contains numbers that are 20 digits long & they begin with 4 zero's. The problem is that when Excel imports the query, if I fprmat the cells & preserve the formatting, it cuts off the first 4 zero's & replaces the last number with a zero. Basically, it looks as if it is only importing 15 numbers. Is there a way around this ; is there a way to force Excel to import all 20 numbers? If I don't format the cells, it imports in the following format - 4.20017E+15
