## Using A IF / IFELSE Statment To Change A Cells Format

Jan 11, 2009

I have been trying to get a formatting programme to work for well over a week and no matter what I try I seem destined to fail. I am trying to use an IF statement in VBA to format a cell if the result of the IF is true. The values in the cells being formatted have been generated from a VLOOKUP statment (looking at a table on another sheet of the workbook). I have tried to use conditional formatting but cannot get past the limit of 3 conditions.

Note in the code below I have values that may appear the same but to make them unique they have a single (or double) space before and after the character. Not sure if the code I have below is workable, if anyone has a better idea please let me know (its a little long winded). I am currently self learning VBA (through forums and the like) and below is the best I have come up with... however when I try to run it I only get a Run-time error 1004, application-defined or object defined error.

## Conditional I Think If Statment Maybe More

Jan 19, 2009

Ok ive been playing about with excel for the past week to get a spreadsheep up and running so i can see the totals of some things and now its getting a little complecated for me (ive done the easy stuff lol)

Ok here is the situation and i'll try and explain what im doing as best as i can. Im trying to make a spreadsheet that shows how much a resorce can be refined so lets say in a1 to c1 i have 400 in each but i can mix a with b and b with c at the ratio of every 20 of a and c to ever 10 of b

so somewhere in my spread sheet id have the result 20 and 20 as products ato c can make 20 of product d and e i hope that makes sence?

for every 20 + 10 of a(400)+b(400) = 20
and for every 20 + 10 of c(400)+b(400) = 20

so if i had 600 300 600 instead of 400 i can only make 30 of product d of e (id have to choose)

## Slow For Loop With IF Statment

## Convert Cells With Percentage Format To 'same' Decimal In A Column With Mixed Format

Jun 7, 2006

I have a column of cells with values - 0.2%, 0.32%, 0.22, 0.5 etc. The cells with % symbol are in ' Percentage, 2 decimal' format while the plain numbers are in 'General' format i.e. column contains cells in either of these formats. I need a macro where I can specify the column and it will select the cells with the % format, convert it to 'General' and multiply the result by 100 eg. 0.2% converted to 'General' becomes 0.002. When multiplied by 100, result is 0.2 i.e. is displayed without the % symbol.

## Converting Times Stored In Date Format To Number Format?

Mar 31, 2014

One of the reports I run provides me information on lengths of time. Such a field displays as |0:09:16| indicating 9 minutes and 16 seconds. However, when the report generates the excel spreadsheet it saves these cells in date/time format ([h]:mm:ss). If I were to convert this field to the number format (so I can manipulate and graph it) it displays as such |0.00643460648148148| Ideally I would be able to have the data in the field stored as |556| (556 seconds, or 9 minutes 16 seconds). I have thousands of fields that I need to manipulate where the data is stored in this format and I can not figure out how to fix it.

## Format Climatic Data From A Weather Station Into A Desired Format

Feb 11, 2009

I need to format some climatic data from a weather station into a desired format. There are a lot of cut&paste and transposing involved. I think it will be easy but tedious for anyone trained in VB to write a macro but unfortunately I am not. I've tried recording a macro but it turns out that it is not general enough to deal with all the spreadsheets that I've got.

I've attached a spreadsheet which shows the original format (in sheet 1) and the desired format (in sheet 2). To briefly describe, I only need the temperature data for 8am and 2pm, the rest of the information in sheet 1 is useless to me.
