Currency Sign
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).

SO:
A B C

Cat Fish
Dog Dog Roll
Bull Carpet
Apple Dog

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.

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?

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´).

Option Explicit

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)
End If
Next intLoopCounter
End Function

Two requests:

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 Plus Sign On Numbers Greater Than X
I'm trying to write a macro in Excel that would change any number greater than 10 in a spreadsheet to say "+10"

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"

c4,d4,e4,f4 signs positive to negative

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.

Sum Positive And Negative Numbers Regardless Of Sign
I have a colum of positive and negative numbers I want to sum all the numbers regardless of the sign. Example
-1500
8000
-2500
4000

I can not work in another colum or covert the negative numbers in another colum then add them up.

I need last cell to read 16000. What formula do I need?

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 Flip Macro To Skip Blanks
I have been using this macro, which works perfect:

Sub Signflip()
Dim cell As Range
For Each cell In Selection
If IsNumeric(cell.Value) Then cell.Value = -cell.Value
Next cell
End Sub

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.

Format To Change Negative/positive Sign
I have a cell that always requires a negative currency number.

No doubt I will inadvertently enter a positive number now and then.

Is there a conditional format method or something that will take my cell entry and always change it to negative?

I have a worksheet with a column that contains about 30k email addresses in the following format:

name@company.com

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.

before: john@doe.com
jane@company.com

after: john@doe.com doe

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.

Join 2 Cells & Show Equal Sign In Cell

A2=1

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.

Copy Formulas Across: Get A Little Black Plus-sign In The Lower Right Corner Of The Cell

Getting A String Of Hash Sign Because Character Length In A Cell Is Too Large

I've already tried resizing the rows and columns to their respective maximums but it doesn't seem to work.

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
columns.

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:

12/5/200810:421.266491.26651.266091.26629
12/5/200810:431.266291.266431.266041.26609

Convert Negative Numbers With Negative Sign On Right
I have data that comes from a subsytem that places the negative sign at the right of the number, so it is recognized as text. I can get around this using find and replace and then a second step to multiply that by -1, but is there a formula that can do this for me?

I was trying if(right(A1,1)="-",TBD,A1)

i have some text that is in a text document +1-17 0.5L the problem is when i import the file in to excel and set delimiters it will not show the " + " sign i have tried to set formating to text but it still drops it

I am trying to find the solution for the problem I faced after downloading the "Color Filter" utility from this forum (Handle Duplicates & Color Filter)

I really do not understand why I was banned. I've downloaded utility from THIS forum and have kindly asked help on how to remove it because it does not meet my needs. I am not an expert in VBA and expected that somebody could help me. (It looks like the person providing the utility in the above indicated post shared the password as everybody is thanking him but I don't see where it is!)

I just want to remove the utility from my PC!!! And, if I can do this without bloody password than I do not want it! But, can somebody just explain me if there is another way to remove this from my PC or I have to reinstall EXCEL ?

I must say that I find it really increadible for beeing banned twice for no reason. Isn't it worse to place the password protected utility so that the one dowloading it cannot remove it anymore?
