# Inserting Minus Sign In Front Of Numbers In A Range

Mar 19, 2009
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.

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.

I have a column of numbers which have the - sign at the back end of the number instead of the front. What would be the easiest way to turn that into a negative number without manually keying each one?

I need to add an extra four zeros to a number in a cell - in this case an ID number, so that i can do a lookup from another list. Basically what i have is two lists of ID numbers in a field of a database, in one i have the correct display/format, so that a number would look like 000054454545. In the second list however the number is only shown as 54454545, due to differences in the programs which imported them. I would like to know if its possible to use a function or macro in excel to basically insert the four zeros onto the number ie 0000 + 54454545 = 000054454545 so that i can do a lookup of one for the other.

i have to copy and paste values from an sap program over to excel spreadsheets, and I usually do about 15 at a time that end up in a column: 15 different cells. The value I am copying are ID numbers that all begin with zero and excel automatically removes the zeros at the front of each number. Is there a formula/process for preventing this.

Is there a formula for adding zero's in front of numbers?

Example:

If a single number is found in cell B1 add two zeros (2 would become 002)

If two numbers found in same cell B1 add one zero (34 would become 034)

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.

Current Data:

ALBERTSONS #8272-ROSEVIL WHS-closed

ALBERTSON'S #703 - SAN RAMON

ALBERTSONS #7105 - CARMEL (SOLD 6/06)

I have a macro already that prints my blank invoices sequentially. What I would now like to do, is insert a dash. SO instead of just the invoice number, I would like to have a 1- in front of each number;

1-1

1-2

1-3

1-4 ... etc.

I have uploaded the 'invoice' that I am currently using.

If I wanted to get a cell, say A1, to multiply a value, for example 7, by the results in another cell, say B1, but NOT multiply if that cell's value is a minus number, is there a way of getting Excel to do that?

Normally I'd just type =SUM(A1*B1)*7, but how can that be reconfigured to ignore minus numbers? e.g. if B1 contained -5, ?

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

=16000

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?

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?

I am looking for a formula to do the following:

In Tab 1, I have a negative number and the word "Original" next to it. In Tab 2, I have a mix of positive & negative numbers. I want all numbers that are negative to display the word "original" and all positive to display" new." How do I do that? Also, I want the opposite to work as well-- if Tab 1 has a positive number, I want all positive numbers in Tab 2 to display "original."

I need to sort some data on a spreadsheet but I am uncertain on how to select the used range.

I just want a piece of code that will select WHATEVER area of the sheet is populated with data. The sheet I will be doing the selecting on is titled "Master".

To add to it I DO NOT want ROW 1 included in the selection.

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:

In a formula, what effect does putting a plus sign after an equals sign? e.g.

=+((1+B8)^12)-1. I orginally assumed that it made sure that result the would always be positive but I was wrong.

I have a column of an undefined number of rows where I need to add item numbers from 1 to however many items there are, starting from A9 downwards.

The last 3 used rows on the sheet contain signatures etc so it should not number the bottom 3 rows.

pretty sure its fairly simple code but i dont have anything similar from previous files that i can re-use to do this :p

just needs a simple

count how many rows are blank from A9 downwards (to say A200)

for num=1 to count do

Cell range(A(9+num) = num

end

i just dont know the code well enough to write it and make it work :p

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)

the following issue:

I have a spreadsheet of questionnaire responses which range from 1-7

For example:

Respondent Q1

1 4

2 3

3 7

4 6

So each row is a new respondent and each column is their response from the scale.

What I need to do is code the responses into a different form. I need them to be represented as follows:

Respondent Answer1 Answer2 Answer3 Answer4 Answer 5 Answer 6 Answer 7

1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0

2 0 0 1 0 0 0 0

So that each number then represents the place on the scale from which it was chosen.

I tried recording a macro but I think this requires something a lot more complex.

I have a large data set (excel file), of "Names", "Phone Numbers", and i need to sort this based on the States that correspond with the Phone numbers. The states currently do not exist in the spreadsheet, so my current problem is trying to insert those states into the spreadsheet.

There are over 100 area codes in the data set, so i'll likely have to write a large "If" statement in VB to run through them all, but that shouldnt be a problem.

NAME, PHONE, STATE

Bleh, 555-555-5555, =ChkState(B2)

I've been playing around with the VB Stuff in Excel and this is what i've come up with for trying to insert the State field

Function ChkState(pVal As String) As Long

Dim AreaCode As String

Dim StateAbrv As String

AreaCode = Left(pVal, 3)

If AreaCode = "201" Then

StateAbrv = "Test201"

ElseIf AreaCode = "203" Then

StateAbrv = "Test203"

ElseIf AreaCode = "555" Then

StateAbrv = "Test555"

Else

StateAbrv = "0"

End If

MsgBox StateAbrv

End Function

I'm fairly new to this VB stuff, my main problem stems from trying to insert the "StateAbrv" back into the Cell for the spreadsheet.

I have a range (of 2 rows) that are set up as a header row and sub row. I want a macro to insert these above the active row (ie. where the user places the cursor), but when I select and copy the range in the macro, I don't know how to refer back to the 'active row' because that's not active anymore.

I'd also like the cursor then to be placed into one of the cells in the new row, ready for the user to start editing.
