# Decrease Letter And Number Combination Code By Number

Dec 21, 2012
I have letter and number combination code in two collumns and they differ for 10.000 numbers:

BAM98314

BAM88314

BAM90000

BAM80000

As you can see the left code is for 10000 numbers higher. the letters are allways the same. In the event that this isn't so, if difference between codes in same row is more or less than 10000 numbers. I was thinking on making conditional formating so the cells with wrong difference would be marked red, but I do not know how to make formula for this difference.

I have a column of references I wish to standardize. Contained within a general text description there is also an order-specific reference number, which is not relevant for my purposes. I wish to find all of these numbers and replace them with nothing (i.e. retain the rest of the description).

The reference numbers are always in the format "P#####/##". Unfortunately these references are in the middle of the text field, not at the start or end, so I can't use a LEFT or RIGHT formula to delete them.

Once these reference numbers have been deleted I will then be able to filter for unique records only. When I do this at the moment the filtering has no effect due to these specific reference numbers.

From an Excel 2003 workbook I generate some product labels. Each label has a 5 digit job number and a quantity that are passed to variables. If the quantity is 1, then I have no problems in printing my label. My problem is where the quantity is greater than 1. If a job has more than 1 item (can be up to 40 or 50) I need to add a series of letter (or letters) to the end of the job number.

For example:

Job number 12345

qty 1

number on label 12345

Job number 12346

qty 4

numbers on labels 12346A, 12346B, 12346C, 1234D

so that each printed label has a unique job number

I would like to change a number to a letter and then drop a digit from the end.

Say my data in A1 reads 81234568, and I would like it to display in cell A2 as h123456.

How to translate a specific number into a specific letter related to the number itself.

I have lots of different numbers for example all going down a specific cell (These numbers I want to separate into 3 different catagories. The positive numbers I want to be calculated as the same Letter that is next to that row directly over to the left of that cell.

So if the letter

B / cell / cell / +9 / Then I want if its a positive number like +9 to answer in the formula with the same letter (B) listed to the right in the same row in a different cell of course

B / cell / cell / -6 / Then I want if its any negative number like -6 to answer in the formula as the opposite Letter of (P) listed to the right in the same row in a different cell of course

P / cell / cell / +17 / Then I want if its a positive number like +17 to answer in the formula as the same letter (P) listed to the right in the same row in a different cell of course

P / cell / cell / -3 / Then I want if its a negative number like -3 to answer in the formula as the opposite Letter of (B) listed to the right in the same row in a different cell of course

and thirdly if its a (0) zero and only (zero's) Then I want the answer to stay (0) zero.

The number can be any numbers it doesn't matter. Only distinction is that positive number of +1 and up repeat and stay the same letter that the cell on the far left is already stated.

and all the negative number of -1 amd below all reverse the letter to the opposite letter of (B to a P) or (P to a B) listed to the right in the same row in a different cell of course

and of course (0) zero would be listed as a positive number and only return a (0) zero as the result of the formula.

I need to be able to select a certain number (from, say, 1-20) from a drop down menu, which will decide a number of rows (filled with data) on the next sheet. As I prefer not to give anyone the sheet I'm actually working on I made a quick look-a-like which might explain this better.

A and B are different scenarios, with different values in the fake drop-down menu I made. Just to pass on the understanding of what I want the values to do. If putting a drop-down menu there is troublesome, then I can live without them. But entering a certain value in the field and getting that number of rows for a certain product is what I need. I tried searching for a function/macro to use for this, but I dont know what exactly to look for. Name, etc

I have a macro that increase a cell number and one that decreases a cell number, heres my code:

Code:

Sub Macro1()

Dim t

t = Split(Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("d5").Text, "/")

t(0) = Format(t(0) + 1, "0")

Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("d5") = Join(t, "/")

[Code] .......

So they do exactly what i want them to do but i want to put a limitation on them, so say the number in the cell is 0 then i dont want it to be able to subtract from it anymore, and say the number is 20 i dont want it to be able to add any more, i tried to put if statments into the code but no luck.

i have been working on 2 sheets receiving and selling item and QTY, or in other words i have a Stock IN sheet and a Stock Out sheet

is there some sort of a formula which links 2 cells, columns, together in a way that, if one cell's number increased the other would decrease automatically ?

say iv set 50 in cell a1, i want to set 10 elsewhere and the 50 in cell a1 will automatically decrease from to 40

I'm trying to figure out how to setup a worksheet to find the most common 2 digit numbers going vertically from the bottom(cold) to the top(hot) it would consist of 90 digits 0 thru 9

it would look like this

4 0 3 9 0 4 3 3 2

9 2 5 6 5 6 9 6 6

8 9 9 3 1 0 2 9 8

1 6 7 5 9 9 8 2 5

2 7 2 2 2 8 5 1 3

0 1 4 7 4 7 6 0 9

3 5 6 4 3 3 0 4 4

7 8 8 1 8 5 7 8 7

5 4 1 8 6 1 1 5 1

6 3 0 0 7 2 4 7 0

each vertical line would be considered weeks 9 thru 1. week 9 would be the first vertical line of digits on the left. it could also contain the most common 2 digits horizontally. Both 2 digit values would be color coded ex. blue equals most common 2 digit horizontally and green equals vertically. I would also like to color code the most common 2 digit value diagonally as long as it is the most common of either the vertical or horizontal 2 digit. Each number is seperate on the worksheet they would not be pairs. im using excell 2003.

I want to convert a Lexicographic Index Number, better known as Combination Sequence Number (CSN) to a combination using an EXCEL formula.C(n, k) Lexicographic Index Numbers, where n is the total numbers drawn from, and k is the total numbers drawn.

I have a lookup table in cell M1:R56 which holds the correct data, that I am pretty sure about.

In cell G1 I have the Lexicographic Index Number I want converted to a combination.

In cell J2 I have the value 39 (n).

In cell I2 I have the value 5 (k).

In cell K2 I have the formula =COMBIN($J$2,$I2).

In cell A1 (the first number in the combination) I have the formula:

=IF(G1=0,"",$J$2-VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,6))

In cell B1 (the second number in the combination) I have the formula:

=IF(G1=0,"",$J$2-VLOOKUP($K$2-G1-(VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,1)),$N$1:$R$56,5))

In cell C1 (the third number in the combination) I have the formula:

=IF(G1=0,"",$J$2-VLOOKUP($K$2-G1-(VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,1))-VLOOKUP($K$2-G1-(VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,1)),$N$1:$R$56,1),$O$1:$R$56,4))

In cell D1 (the fourth number in the combination) I have the formula:

=IF(G1=0,"",$J$2-VLOOKUP($K$2-G1-(VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,1))-VLOOKUP($K$2-G1-(VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,1)),$N$1:$R$56,1)-VLOOKUP($K$2-G1-(VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,1))-VLOOKUP($K$2-G1-(VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,1)),$N$1:$R$56,1),$O$1:$R$56,1),$P$1:$R$56,3))

In cell E1 (the fifth number in the combination) I have the formula:

=IF(G1=0,"",$J$2-($K$2-G1-(VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,1))-VLOOKUP($K$2-G1-(VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,1)),$N$1:$R$56,1)-VLOOKUP($K$2-G1-(VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,1))-VLOOKUP($K$2-G1-(VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,1)),$N$1:$R$56,1),$O$1:$R$56,1)-VLOOKUP($K$2-G1-(VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,1))-VLOOKUP($K$2-G1-(VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,1)),$N$1:$R$56,1)-VLOOKUP($K$2-G1-(VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,1))-VLOOKUP($K$2-G1-(VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,1)),$N$1:$R$56,1),$O$1:$R$56,1),$P$1:$R$56,1)))

This works for the vast majority, but gives an ERROR when numbers 35,36,37,38,39 are in the combination, but funny enough NOT all the time.Lexicographic Index Number 575757 which is the maximum combination gives ALL ERRORS.

I'm currently trying to make a sort macro that sorts a row of data that has a combination of numerical data and the text entry "N.A."

e.g.:

My field:

1

2

N.A

4

5

N.A

9

I want to sort the cells by descending value. But the result appears as:

My field:

N.A

N.A

9

5

4

2

1

But I want to numbers to appear first and have the "N.A."s to be after the number, since I have about 100 columns and some rows have like 30 N.A., which is pretty bad for usability if all that appears in the first screen are "N.A."

EDIT: by the way by ascending the data is fine since it orders by smallest number to largest and THEN the "N.A."

I'm looking for another excel game changer (for the work I do anyway).

I have a dollar amount, and I want to know if any combination of dollar amounts in a particular range of cells will equal that dollar amount. Is this possible in Excel?

Example: I have 20 different dollar amounts in a column. I want to know what combination of those 20 different dollar amounts, if any, will equal $257.97. The dollar amount I'm looking for and the numbers in the range will change with each use. I'm hoping for a formula, but VBA will work too as I could just make a template and copy / paste the numbers in.

I am using a pivot table to explore the relationship between the two variables in a survey. Question 1 is a "choose all that apply" question, while Question 2 is more "if you said yes to any in question 1, choose all that apply".

So, I have about 10 filters for question 1, where each combination will give me a different number for the responses for question 2. My question is this: How do I get excel to automatically find the # of individuals with the particular combination of filters in question 1?

Ie. if said yes to 3/10 options in question 1, how do I get excel to find out how many actually said yes to the 3/10 questions.

The purpose of this data is for reference to question #2, so that i can utilize some percentages.

I'm trying to add plus 1 to a cell from another cell but it doesn't work because the number starts with a letter. I do want to keep the letter in there for a reason so removing the letter to make it work is not what I want.

Example:

Code:

ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Invoice").Range("H5").Value = ActiveCell.Value + 1

Is it that I need to declare and set the ActiveCell value as a string or something?
