How To Remove = Sign
looking for a formula to remove an "= sign" at the very beginning. hence if "=Jordan" then want to change it to "Jordan" in cell T3 only.
but wait, the resulting cell T3 "=Jordan" already has a formula inside it =(U3&V3&W3&X3&Y3)
How to enter formula for removing "= sign" and not disturbing the existing formula ....

Decimal Sign Replaced With ';' Sign
I'm trying to solve a strange problem in a piece of code.
I have a variable that is define as Double called STD. When i try to insert that variable in a formula the decimal sign (for me a comma "," because I'm Portuguese) gets converted to ";" (which is for me the separation sign for the expressions in excel formulas. ex: AND(A1>0;B1>0)=TRUE). The code is:
I have a very frustrating problem with my business plan i am writing in Excel. every so often it crashes and when I open it again all the £ signs have turned to $ signs and i have to go through and painstakingly change them all. This also happens even if I just close the file carefully and open it up again. I have tried looking in preferences to see if there is a default setting but can't seem to work it out. can anyone help me with this tiresome issue?
Special Sign Removal
I got three columns in excel. Column A is a list of items, so is column C. Column B displays the similarity in the 2 lists.
I use the following command =IF(ISERROR(MATCH(A1,$C$1:$C$265,0)),"",A1).
A B C
Dog Dog Roll
But what I want to do is the following:
If I have "D-og 12 2-3" in column A and say "do g 1 22/3" in column C, I want it to be displayed in column B. To do that I need to decapitalise and remove all the special symbols such as space, ), (, *, &, ^, %, $, #, @,! etc.
So I get dog1223 in column B since they are the same.
Extract The Numbers Following # Sign
This should be an easy one but I am having a difficult time extracting the digits after the # sign in each account description in my list. The values in each cell do not follow any rhyme or reason and differ in length. Three examples of the current data and what I am looking to extract are below.
ALBERTSONS #8272-ROSEVIL WHS-closed
ALBERTSON'S #703 - SAN RAMON
ALBERTSONS #7105 - CARMEL (SOLD 6/06)
Place The Name Before Equal Sign
I'm trying to simplify a section of my code by naming a long string that is repeated. I tried by simply place the Name before equal sign (=) and also putting Set before the name. Both failed though I've seen both methods used successfully in other code. Am I having a syntax issue of some sort?

Plus Or Minus Sign In The Beginning?
I want to save phone no as +99 9876543210 in excel 2003 on my xp pro machine. But if i give a + sign in the cell, some blue dotted rectangle shows up and everything messes up.. I think it is treating it as a formula or something... how can i save this in the cell. tell me in detail if you are going to tell me about macros or vb code as I don't know how to insert code or program macros.
Prevent Copy From Using $ Sign
Get a SUMIF formula to work, which it now does, but the formula puts '$' signs in the range, so that when it copies it, it does not change the range. I have got round this, by defining 12 separate ranges. But it does make the code rather long winded. Anyone know how to put the formula in without the '$' signs? There must be a way to put the formula into the first cell, and copy it across?

Remove Non-alpha Characters From Alphanumerics With Option To Remove Numbers
I have found a very useful UDF for removing non-alpha characters from strings. (See below, Credit for posting to Stanley D Grom - Ozgrid post ´Removing Non-alpha Characters From Text´).
Private Function RemoveCharacters(InString As String) As String
Dim intLoopCounter As Integer
Dim intStringLength As Integer
Dim intASCIIVal As Integer
intStringLength = Len(InString)
InString = LCase(InString)
For intLoopCounter = 1 To intStringLength
intASCIIVal = Asc(Mid(InString, intLoopCounter, 1))
If intASCIIVal >= 97 And intASCIIVal <= 122 Then
RemoveCharacters = RemoveCharacters + Mid(InString, intLoopCounter, 1)
1. Could the UDF be modified such that any part of a string contained within brackets is also removed (e.g. "NLGA High Street (West-Enfield), EN6" becomes "nlgahighstreeten")?
2. Can an argument be added to the format of the UDF, such that numbers (0 to 9) are either included or excluded (e.g. RemoveCharacters(A1,1) where the argument ´1´ would include any numbers (0 to 9), so "NLGA2003 High Street (West-Enfield), EN6" becomes "nlga2003highstreeten6")? ´blank´or ´0´would exclude these numbers, i.e. would return "nlgahighstreeten"
Entering $ Sign (absolute Values)
I tried to make use of the indirect function but don't think this is the right type of formula to be used.
Essentially in column A..i have linked cell references
e.g = D2767
However, for the whole of the column I'd like to change the refs to =$D$2767, ALL in column A in one go.
I know that if you place the cursor in one cell immediately after the = sign and press F4 it automatically adds $ SIGNS TO THE CELL, which I find useful for V-lookups, but I obviously cannot do it (fill it) all the way down the column i'm using excel v7.
In addition or related how would I write an IF formula to read eg.
= IF (cell ref begins with C, then link and add PRECEDING AND FOLLOWING $ signs to all refs)?
Show These #### SIGN When The Sheet Is Printed
In A1 I have the time (military h:mm) 8:00
In B1 I have the 30 min braek we take at work 0.30
in C1 the end of shift time (16:00)
In D1 total hours (formula : = sum(C1-A1)-B1
and it is OK EXCEPT if the employee has the day off.
In that case A1 and C1 are empty but because of B1 I get in D1 the terrible ####
How can I remedy this ... this sheet cannot be edited in anyway. ( I cannot delete or edit anything)
Thought of an IF but the #### are not a value so I cannot do much in the way of conditional fprmats ... how not to show these #### when the sheet is printed.
Changing The Sign Values In Cells
i have one row of values ie c4="-121" d4="122" e4="123" f4="124"
and h4="test" like this .
if h4="right" (i change the value test to write) i want to change the
c4,d4,e4,f4 signs positive to negative
ie c4=+121 d4=-122 e4=-123 f4=-124
i write sample code like this
Currency Convertor ($ Sign Doesn Not Appear)
I have a spreadsheet with cells defined as Euro & Dollars. I want to add an automatic conversion so for example, if a cell is defined as $ the formula will return the sum X 4 and if it is Euro than sum X 5.
I tried to use "if" combined with "search" (so if the cell contains "$" multiply by 4) but since the cell is defined as currency the $ sign does not appear and cannot be searched…
How To Separate The Currency Sign From The Number
I have a file contains thousands of rows of purchasing order. the purchasing value is in different local currency,the data(number) format is "Accounting" .
Is there a way to separate the currency sign and the number into different column?
I need to the currency sign to be able to convert data to desired currency. But Excel read the data as number. so I was doing it row by row. Such a pain and not efficient.
Copy Formatting Using Equal Sign
This seems simple...
If I let A1=8
If I fill in the cell green, either manually or with conditional formatting, and then copy and paste the cell into A2, A2 is now green with the number 8 inside.
However, if in A2 I type "=A1", A2 still has the 8 but is no longer green.
Is there a way to copy the formatting of a cell by setting it equal to the original?
Display Plus Sign For Positive Numbers
If you have a formula lets say ( sum A1-A2) and the total is negative i.e. A1 is 100, A2 is 50 would return -50, how do you get the value to show a plus sign if the value is positive? i.e. if A2 is 100 and A1 is 50, excel would simply show 50, but I'd like it to show +50. Also, if the result is 0, so both A1 and A2 are 50, how do I get Excel to display the words On Forecast in a cell?
Sign & Sumproduct Functions
I have three pages of daily data I am working with; orginal source data, manipulated data, and my output. My output data is a daily row of six columns containing 1, 0, or -1, based on my manipulated data (1,1,0-1,1,-1). I would like by row, sum the coresponding source data (5,4,0,-3,3,-4) by the positve 1s and a second column with the negative 1s. then average the column by the number of consituents (positive5+4+3 )/3=4 & negative;(-4+-3)/2=-3.5)
Sign Flip Macro To Skip Blanks
I have been using this macro, which works perfect:
Dim cell As Range
For Each cell In Selection
If IsNumeric(cell.Value) Then cell.Value = -cell.Value
It allows me to select cells and flip from neg to pos, pos to neg, and it won't error out on text cells. Great little macro.
However, I don't like how it puts a zero in blank cells. It slows down the macro when I select large areas. Is there a way to make this macro work the same way but skip over empty or blank cells and not enter a zero.
Pull Text After @ Sign In Email Addresses
I have a worksheet with a column that contains about 30k email addresses in the following format:
I would like to make a macro to do the following: I would like to pull the company name out (the text after the @ symbol) and put it into the next column, but it needs to remain with the email. I would like to do this with all of the emails on the sheet.

Inserting Minus Sign In Front Of Numbers In A Range
i want to know how to prefix a minus sign (-) before numbers in cells in a large range.i m working on a large sheet containing the Numbers with Cr and Dr as suffixes just like 445Dr ... 3331Cr and so..on... in the worksheet
i want to know the method of deleting the suffixes and prefixing - sign infront of numbers having Cr as the suffix.
Numbers with Dr as suffix denote positive numbers
and numbers with Cr suffix denote negative numbers. i want to prefix the -minus sign in front of numbers having Cr in the end.
Concatenate Formula Not Taking Decimal Places/currency Sign
i have lets say a table with rows that contain the following data.
SKU - PRICE - SALEPRICE - DESCRIPTION - SALEDESCRIPTION
What I am trying to do, is to make a concat formula that says:
SALEDESCRIPTION = DESCRIPTION+price was+PRICE+now+SALEPRICE
In essence so that i can simply pull down the formula, and all our product descriptions have 'special offer, was xx (price) is now xx (sale price).
This works fine, except that in the SALEDESCRIPTION, the amounts from the price and saleprice fields are being brought over without decimal places and without currency symbol.
I have tried formatting those two columns as currency or accounting but neither works.
Join 2 Cells & Show Equal Sign In Cell
I have even tried with concernate and indirect in A3 but no difference there...
I want A3 to return =B1 but it only returns it in text but i want it in form of a formula. Is there a formula that returns text directly into a formula or an easy way to do this?
Text To Column Function And Separate Values By The ";" Sign
1. The Text to column function and separate values by the ";" sign
2. Then separate the first column ( which contains both date and time ) into their separate
3. The 2nd step will result in values such as "mm/dd/yyyy 0:00" and "hh:mm:00" followed by
an "AM" or "PM" which is unnecessary. The code should clean up the resulting date and
time into "mm/dd/yyyy" and "hh:mm" respectively.
4. Flip the rows upside down so that time is decreasing downwards.
The resulting spreadsheet should contain 6 columns and should look like:
Show The " + " Sign

Remove The Word
how to automatically remove the word " Total" that Excel puts beside what you are totalling while using a subtotal?
For example, I am totaling a value of orders for one company and Excel puts "COMPANY NAME Total". Or is there a way to use the Right function to delete the 5 last letters of text in a cell? I've tried using the right function but can't seem to get it to work to delete text...
Remove Certain Duplicates ....
Is it possible to scan through column A for duplicates if found delete the row that has not got any data in either column D E or F? If Duplicates are found and neither have any data in D E or F Delete all but one of the duplicates.
I have a sheet that looks like this.
JOE D.02082008/28/199 H PAnnual Increase06/05/2006
JOE D.02082008/28/1995 H PReclassification06/11/2007
JOE D.02082008/28/1995 H PReclassification02/11/2008
The name is in Column F the employee Number is the 020820 and we want to only have the latest date in the last column.
So out of this data above. The bottom one with the 2/11/2008 is the one we want to keep.
And delete those other 2.
The next group has duplicate names 10 of them. But only want to keep the most recent.
