I like to make my numbers with no decimals, with a comma. This means I have to constantly press a number of buttons to put them in the format I want. Not too big a deal but is there a way I can make one of the buttons in the number group default to the way I want the numbers to appear?
I have a large project with many worksheets. Somehow I managed to change the default number format for new worksheets to Time. So... when I create a new worksheet and paste stuff into it I get everything in AM/PM. How can I change the default number format to Number?
i changed the shape of "Comment" box with edit shape. However when i right click the updated shape and click on Set Autoshape Default it does nothing. When I insert a new comment it is back to old shape.
1. Is it possible to have two versions of excel installed on the same PC and would this cause any issues? This would be my preffered approach as it would enable me to do the haevy number crunching in 2007, but use 2000 for the everyday spreadsheets that I would have to share with my collegues. 2. Can you make 2007 default into compatability mode so that I wouldnt accidentaly create a spreadsheet that other couldn't use.
When you create a userform in the vba editor, then go to another module, then return to the userform, you see the userform object by default and in order to show the code you have to right-click on the userform and select "view code".
How can I make the "view code" view the default view for the form in the VBA editor? (i.e. so that when the form is selected, I am presented with the code, not the object).
In a new worksheet, I enter the following inputs: Input # 1: 08/26/08 and see 8/26/2008 Input # 2 (in a different cell): 08/26 and see Aug-26 Input # 3 (in the same cell as #2 because I didn't like the result I saw): 08/26/08 and I still see Aug-26
Question: The desired result I would like to see in all three cases is: 8/26/2008 Would someone please explain: 1) How do I set the default date to automatically assume current year if I merely enter 08/26 ? 2) Why entering 08/26 is such a grievous sin that I should so horribly point Excel in the wrong direction - or at least until I reformat that cell?
System info: Windows XP Pro & Office 2003 Regional Settings: short date format M/d/yyyy
In a worksheet, I should have selected the region where data is present, and center align all the cells. Instead, I selected the entire worksheet and did the same, so that whenever new data comes in the relative cells are already formatted. This has caused the workbook size to increase dramatically. (So, I assume that changing a cell property from the default value uses some memory). Is there a way to restore the format of the blank cells to the default values, so that memory is freed and the workbook size decreases again?
whenever i start a new worksheet in the workbook, it's format is set as custom format. At the same time, whatever pivot table draw will be in this custom format. Is there anyway i can change the default format back to general? There is also a sample attached...The actual db is kinda more complex than that but there is a limitation of 40kb so...Is there any other preferred website to upload files?
Using Excel 2010 - I have a large workbook with multiple worksheets - been using it succesfully every day for a long time. All of a sudden every empty cell, and any cell not specifically formated in every worksheet has a default cell format of Time. Any new workbook created is OK.. defaults to 'General' - But, if I add a new blank worksheet to this particular workbook it defaults to 'Time' format. How did the default cell format for this workbook become set to 'Time' from 'General' and how do i fix it?
I work with a team of users that are continually publishing reports in Word that contain charts and graphs copy and pasted from Excel into Word 2010.
We have a custom script that leverages a PDF engine to automatically convert .doc files to .PDF files that we distribute electronically to our clients. This all works great, but only if all my users select 'paste special' and Enhanced Metafile Format when adding their excel charts into our reports. Most of these people aren't tech savvy, and I'm havin ga hell of a time getting them to follow this workflow and am hoping there's a way in Office 2010 to select the default paste from excel into word when the content is a chart.
It seems like the default paste from excel is an embedded chart/graph that you can then further manipulate each component of the chart in Word; the default doesnt' paste an actual image. I am assuming the pdf renderer is using a lower resolution .PNG version of the image and when these are scaled for print and or pdf, they look like crap.
Is htere anyway I can automatically change the default paste format for the chart from excel into word to be an EMF/EMV (enhanced metafile?) Either thorugh the registry or some other saveable setting?
I have tried, through control panel - region settings etc, to change the default number of decimals to 0. I often use the Number format using the shortcut CTRL + SHIFT + 1 but then have to reduce the 2 decimals down.
I have recorded a macro to apply this kind of formatting but the disadvantage of this is that I cannot undo any actions before that point - which has gotten me into some trouble on a few occasions .
Is there a macro that I can use that adjusts the "Normal" cell style number format from General to Number (with thousand separator but 0 decimals) each time I open a new book? As merging cell styles is also quite a mundane task..
I have =(D4-C4)<40 (if the difference is 40 or less then color the font orange) but if the difference is 0 or a negative, I need it to do nothing. I don't know how to do the nothing part. I tried using the IF but couldn't figure out how to make the true format the color
In the toolbar there's a section titled "Number" which allows you to change cell formats with selections named General, Number, Accounting, Date, Time, etc. I want to permanently change some of their default formats.
For instance, currently when I select Number the default is -4000.00. I want to PERMANENTLY change its default to (4,000.00). How do I do this?
I need to find the last row of data where there is data in Column F. I then need to select from that row the cells that pertain to A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, & M and then be able to make format changes like increase font size.
I also then want to select A in that same row and put the word Total.
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.
I have an Excel 2010 spreadsheet where the default number format keeps switching to the date format. I keep switching it back and it'll stay as a number format for a time, but then it'll switch back. This is also the case for any new worksheets in that one spreadsheet.
This only happens with this one file - everything else behaves according to my regional settings or to how the file had been previously formatted.
In order to export an excel table into another program I first need to save the excel file as .txt. The .txt file can then be imported by the other program.
First I however need to make excel understand that the value should be a text and not a value. I therefore format the number as text (0000150235) by adding "0000150235". After saving the file as .txt the format changes from "0000150235" to """0000150235""". I do however need the format in the .txt file to be "0000150235". Can anyone tell me how I can save "0000150235" as .txt and get the value "0000150235" in the .txt file.
I'll get straight to the point: How can I change this text format from 474556788 to 0-47455678-8 (dash added after 0 and before the last number). I need to apply this to around 5000 rows (can't do that manualy). I want it to be int his format:
474556788 to 047-455678-8
Tks Auto Merged Post;474556788 to 047-455678-8 (This is the wanted format)
I have a problem that when I try to convert text to number and format the number without 2 decimal places as seen on the link I have given below, Instead of 1607.947, I get 1607947. I have Excel 2010 loaded. The details are in below picture.
