# How To Translate Number Into Specific Letter Related To Number

Feb 3, 2014
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 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.

I'm trying to write an IF formula that will return a number if the word in the adjacent cell begins with a specific letter. Here's what I want to show:

City

01

Express

02

Overnight

03

So "C" would return 01, "E" would return 02 and "O" would return 03.

I have 3 columns of data, column C has a number representing a length of time in months. I need to add a number to the end of each row (Column D), depending on the number in column C. Example:

If column C has a number between 0 and 3, the number to go in D would be 1. If column C has a number between 4 and 6, the number to go in D would be 2. Here are the list of possiblities (only 5):

0-3 = 1

4-6 = 2

7-9 = 3

10-12 = 4

12+ = 5

This will form part of a macro, so a VBA solution would be ideal. I thought of having a named range and looking up each row with a list of all possiblities. But i see that as rather crude. I'm hoping someone has a more logical solution they could share.

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.

I've developed a spreadsheet in Excel 2000 where one of the cells contains the number of months a quantity will last, calculated by taking the total amount and dividing it by the amount used each month (a constant).

I would like to have another cell where that number is translated into the future date that number of months represents, so that in addition to seeing how many months the total amount will last, one can see when the amount will be depleted.

For example, suppose it is December 9, 2009 (as it is now) and the number in the number-of-months cell is 6. Then, is there a way that when 6 is calculated, in another cell appears something like June 9 2010 or 6/9/2010 or 6/9/10 (assuming the computer's clock is correct)?

It would be nice if the formula would handle decimals too, such as the date for 6.4 months, but that's not essential.

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 data one sheet which is

Date Ref No Type %complete

Monday 1 Erect 75

Monday 2 Erect 50

Tuesday 1 Erect 95

Wednesday 1 Erect 100

On the next tab I am consolidating all the reference numbers and want to capture the latest % complete

I have been trying =Max(if ref no=1 and type = Erect, % complete),1

But when I try it for reference number 2, it just says 100% aswell, when that should be 50%.

The database is for a Prison, and an obvious item to search for on a userform is Prison number. I have a serach option that generates an array listing in a listbox, selecting that item then populates the userform - no problem.

The problem occurs when an individual has more than once instance that has been recorded, is it possible to have more than one row generated in a listbox that can be selected, I only want indiviudal rows selected. The coding I am using for one of the single instance listbox is etc etc etc has been used to demonstrate that the coding continues to the length of the array requied

Private Sub FindAll()

Dim FirstAddress As String

Dim strFind As String 'what to find

Dim rSearch As Range 'range to search

Dim fndA, fndB, fndC, fndD, fndE, 'etc etc etc' As String

Dim i As Integer

i = 1

Set rSearch = Sheet1.Range("ChargeNo.")

strFind = Me.CbAdjFind.Value 'find Charge No

With rSearch

Set c = .Find(strFind, LookIn:=xlValues)..............

I am working on a concrete pour summary, I would like to have the specific codes on each tab be affected from one summary page. So when I enter a certain number on sheet 1 , it will affect that same number section that is on a different sheet. It will be adding a certain amount to that code section every time its entered. What functions need to be used to make this work..?

I wrote an excel program in Excel'03 for a dental office to manage state assistance patients and one of the table columns is the state assistance number. The problem is that the program defaults to a number format when it is entered instead of a text format, which is what I want. The issue is that state assistance numbers are always 8 digits and when it defaults to a number field the program drops the required preceeding zeros.

For example the number 00123456 will sometimes show up as 123456, which is wrong. It's like sometimes it will show up right and other times it gets a butterfly in its brain and deletes those zeros irritating the receptionist here. So, how do I get the table to either stay in text format or set up a number format that keeps the preceeding zeros?

I have attached an example. If I have a set of numbers such as the one attached, is it possible to create a formula that will show me all the combinations of numbers that add up to 55.52? In the attached I have highlighted in different colours all the number combinations that add up to 55.52. The numbers highlighted in blue appear within more then one combination. Is there a formula that can do this for me, instead of randomly adding numbers hoping they add up to 55.52.

I would like to create a vba script when ran an input.box comes up and asks you to "enter number you want to start numbering from" and when the number is entered in the input box. e.g "7654", excel starts numbering each cell in column A from 7654 until there is an empty cell in column B.

Is there simple function that anyone knows of (or has written) that will convert a letter to its alpha-numeric equivalent?

For instance, A = 1, B = 2, AA = 27, etc (a = 1, b = 2, aa = 27)

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?
