## Turn #DIV//0! To 0 Or Even Turn It To A Blank Cell

Nov 6, 2009

I have a workbook which is set up to take an average heart rate of a participant from a series of data points. I have set the spreadsheet up before I have collected some of the data. (so I can review the project at the 3 months period and its an ongoing project).

The problem is that if there is no data in a participants column then excel correctly gives you readout of #DIV//0!. On my results page this #DIV//0! makes it hard to read the spreadsheet. Is it possible to get excel to turn #DIV//0! to 0 or even turn it to a blank cell?

## What Is The 90th Percentile Of The Defined Array Abc

Jan 31, 2014

I have a table with a set of duplicate values like given in the sample table below;

abc22
abc12
abc33
abc44
def60
def56
def46
ghi78
ghi88
ghi98
klm108
klm118
klm120
klm125
klm140

i need to derive the percentile value of one particular text in another sheet. i.e

i want to get- what is the 90th percentile of the defined array abc

if i use the formula percentile(vlookup(abc,table1,2),90%), the cell is referring only to the first value. i want the entire range to be referred.

## Make Text Flow Into Adjacent Cell Without Merging Cells Or Wrapping Text?

Jul 19, 2014

I have some text in a cell, which is longer than the width that I am going to make that cell. When I don't wrap the text, it cuts it off at the end of the cell.

Since each column represents a day in a calendar, it would be incorrect to merge the two cells, but I don't want the text hidden, since I need to print the final product.

It is non-numeric text, and i've pasted --> values to remove formula issues.

## Turn Number Into Text?

## How To Make Text Cursor Appear At The Start Of A Cell?

## Make Static Date Appear When Cell Has Text Entered?

Jan 19, 2014

Any way where is a list of cells (b3:b113) has text entered, or specific text entered, it will enter a static cell in the corresponding "d" column.

I know of CTRL + ; but i don't really know how to get it to work as a macro, can't find a forumla that enters the static date, and i don't want to make a macro to copy + paste special the date when it happens.

So all i should have to do is entered text in column b, then it will add a time stamp, when that text was entered, it doesn't have to update.

Like all i need is this, but instead of the "now()" function, it will have another function that doesn't automatically update?

=IF(ISBLANK(E5)=FALSE,NOW(),"")

## How To Make A Cell Display Text Difference Between Two Cells

## Conditionally Formatted Cells Which Turn The Text In Them To Red If The Value Is Less Than 40

Aug 18, 2009

I have a series of conditionally formatted cells which turn the text in them to red if the value is less than 40. This works fine.

Occasionally however a value of less than 40 will need to be entered along with the letter 'v'.

ie. 39v

I'd still like this to be coloured red, but it's obviously coming out as black.

Is there a way to sort this out?

edited to add : Im actually using a separate cell to enter the value 40 (as the value can change).

## Combining Text In Several Cells Into One Cell F To Make Email Address

## Make One Cell Count Twice In AVG If Certain Text Conditions Apply- 2008

Mar 9, 2009

I am using Excel to tabulate votes for a contest. Judges have given a number to each entry, and but certain judges' opinions need to count twice as much as other judges' opinions based on their qualifications.

I've attached the file to help illustrate what I'm trying to do. Morris's votes need to count twice for all Photography or Web Design entries, and Clark's votes need to count twice for all Graphic Design or Web Design entries.

I know I can do this manually by simply copying the number into a blank cell in another column (like the blank column between Morris and Clark's names), but is there any way to make Excel do this for me?

## Order For The Text String To Turn Into An Active Formula

Jan 10, 2007

When building complex and long formulas in excel which can not be auto
filled due to non progressive variables I tend to combine several cells
containing parts of the formula using the ampersand (&) operator.

E.g. B2=[A1&A2&A3&A4]
where:
A1=[=]
A2=[INDIRECT(\$A\$1&"!"&"S]
A3=[8]
A4=[")]

The result will then look like this: =INDIRECT(\$A\$1&"!"&"S8"), then I
copy all the values created by this method (it could be several
thousand)
and past them into the appropriate worksheet using: past special > past
values.

The problem is that in order for the text string to turn into an active
formula I have to go into each individual cell (F2) and hit Enter. When
I am working with thousand of cells this is not very feasible.

## Cuts And Paste The Text Will Automatically Turn Into A Hyperlink

Apr 26, 2007

## Excel 2010 :: How To Make Concatenate To Generate A Text String Using Custom Formatted Value Of A Cell

May 2, 2014

I have an Excel 2010 spreadsheet that I am using to save several numbers all in the same column. These numbers can range from the several thousands up to billions. The formatting I am using for these numbers is Number (using 1000s separator).

number_forma.png

I am also using the spreadsheet to generate a text string for each of the numbers. I don't want the text string to show the number as it is, I want to shorten the number by only showing the first few digits followed by a "B" for billion, "M" for million, or "K" for thousand. For example, in the text string I want to show 1,600,000 as 1.6B.

In order to shorten the number I use the cell in the column to the right of each number. This cell uses the following custom formatting (which I found by doing a Google search): [>999999999.999]#.0,,,"B";[>999999.999]#,,"M";#,"K";

custom_format.png

As you can see the formatting is quite complex (at least for me it is) but it does what I want it to do.

Here is a screenshot of what the original and custom formatted cells look like:

custom_formatted_cells.png

As you can see the custom formatting works and does exactly what I wan

The next column (after the custom formatted number) is where I put the generated text string for each of the numbers. As I stated above, I want the generated text to use the shortened version of the number (e.g. 1.6B).

To generate the text I use the CONCATENATE function with a reference to the cell containing the shortened number as one of the arguments. For example:

CONCATENATE("SOME STRING ", B1)

Where B1 is the custom formatted cell.

The problem I am running into is, the text that gets generated doesn't show the shortened format of the number, it shows the full number. Here is a screenshot demonstrating what is happening:

concatenate_formula.png

As you can see the generated text is "SOME STRING 1600000000". This is not what I want. I want the generated text to be "SOME STRING 1.6B".

I think I understand what's going on. When the CONCATENATE function references a cell it takes the actual value of the cell and ignores any formatting. (I suppose formatting is just the way you see the data, not how underlying functions receive the data.)

My question is, how can I re-write the CONCATENATE function (or use another function, etc. available to me) to use the formatted version of the cell?

*UPDATE* I have attached my spreadsheet as an attachment to this post (tackyjan_excelforums.xlsx). Please note that it was created and saved using Excel 2010.

## Make A List Of Text From A Range Of Text

Dec 17, 2009

I have a range that contains text. Let's say the range is colums \$F:\$M. There is x rows and in each cell there is either nothing or a word, let's call it "dummy". There is just a certain amount of "dummies", such as "dummy a", "dummy b" and so on, let's assume ten different dummies. It can also happen that "dummy c" or any other dummy appears more than once in those colums.

What I want Excel to do, is looking up columns \$F:\$M and make a list (possibly sorted) that includes all the entries from columns \$F:\$M, but each one only once and no blanks. Can I do this and if, how?
