# Organize Numerous Numbers By Fractions

Jun 19, 2007
I am currently trying to organize numerous numbers by fractions, and it just will not set up right.

1 1/2

1/2

3/4

2

1

2 X 3/4

1 X 1/2

1 1/2 X 3/4

What would be the best code used, or method, to ensure that these numbers organize correctly?

I have some numbers that I've imported from the internet. Some of them contain fractions (i.e. 7 1/2) where the 1/2 is a single fraction character. Is there a function I can use to automatically turn these fraction characters into numbers when they're imported to excel via web query?

I am creating a spreadsheet for use in a manufacturing environment to create a costing and cut list spreadsheet for production set up. The intent is that anyone can use this by copying and pasting an Excel Bill Of Material (BOM) that is generated out of a CAD program onto sheet 1. On sheet 2 (which they don’t touch) is the costing and cut list spreadsheet that references sheet 1 and automatically generated the numbers to create cut sizes and costs.

The first challenge I had was that the measurements include the inch symbol. For example if the imported text 15 5/8" is in cell A1 I am able to remove the inch symbol by using the following formula on sheet 2: =--LEFT(Sheet1!A1,LEN(Sheet1!A1)-1). The result is: 15.6250 which is exactly what I want.

Here is the problem I am having. When the listed dimension is less than 1” and is 5/8” for example I get ###### because I have the cell formatted as a 4 decimal place number. If I change the formatting to number with zero decimal places it becomes 39941 which is how many days it has been from January 1, 1900 to May 8, 2009.

The question is what formula should I use to change the 5/8” imported text so it says 0.6250 and can be used in math formulas? Please keep in mind that the imported text could be a measurement with a small number like 1/16” to a large one such as 284 3/4" and that the imported text “is what it is” and cannot be manually changed or adjusted (because that presents the risk of people creating errors and costing the company money by ordering the wrong material sizes).

I am trying to create a spreadsheet that will take all my grades from the semester (I'm a college student) and compute my GPA. I managed to get a weighted average for each class, but the grade is on a scale of 1-100. I need to convert that to a letter grade, and then a 4.0 scale. How can I set it up so that it will return "A" if 90<Grade<100, "B" if 80<Grade<90, etc.? I'm apologize if this is something simple, but I've been trying to find the right function for a long time.

I work for a construction company, Someone else created a workbook a few years ago with 140 similar pages, each listing a separate piece of equipment as a service record. I need to print these out randomly for mechanics to update with new information, as they service the machines. However, some of the pages of the original workbook are goofy and the workbook as a whole could be improved. But, oh that many pages!

I have worked on a new template page for entering information to make the worksheets all cohesive and updated. Is there an EASY and/or FAST way for me to copy this page 150x to make a new workbook, and just enter my data onto each new page? I really don't want to reformat each page of the original workbook individually to see if I can fix all the glitches and weirdnesses that have occurred on the pages over the years. I thought it would be much easier to retype the data onto new pages.

I am having a little difficulty getting my vba to correspond to what i want it to do. I have columns that can vary with how many rows they have weekly. The all start at P2, R2, V2.

These columns always have the same number of rows as each other, but the number of rows varies.

I compare my R2>P2, and if it is return the number in R2. If not, i am looking to take P2 and round down to the nearest .95. (ex: R2 is at 3.45. The value that should be put in in V2 is 2.95. Since the values all change as well, it needs to compare: .96-1.95, 1.96-2.95, etc. all the way up to 15,000.

I know it can be done with if's, whiles, or from i to x, but my experience is in vb.net, not vba. And, since i am new at this, i can write the code, but don't know how to make it correspond to a new excel filename weekly.

My workbook is a variation of the below repeated on a number of sheets.

Sheet 1

A

B

C

1

Name

Carrots

Peas

2

John Smith

0

7

3

John Doe

2

1

4

Joe Bloggs

4

0

On a separate summary sheet Im struggling to create a formula that would look through all sheets and Sum where 'John Smith' appears and then sum the number of 'Carrots' (if any) and 'Peas' and then the same for any other names that has values attached to it. The names in each sheet may not be in the same order or appear at all otherwise I would just use a standard sum on each sheet.

im having trouble trying to figure out how to organize the following data. It concernc cycling races that has its own data like type of race, country, number of mountain stages etc. but also for each race i need a subcatagorie wich holds the data of all riders that participate in it. like;

Race: Categorie race: Number of mountain stages: etc.....:

Tour de france Grand tour 8 ...

Giro d.italie Grand tour 19 ...

but also for each race:

Race: Teams (wich will need up To twenty names): Riders (For Each team up To 9 riders:

Tour de France Gerolsteiner Totschnig, Zberg, etc...

Tour de France Discovery Channel Armstrong, Beltran, etc...

How would you organize information like that, the trouble is it must be able to use all the excel functions AND be able to update the list trough an webquery and VBA code.

At the moment I have a macro that is assigned to a button. When clicked, it creates a newline, create and copy a column in another sheet. This code works fine :

[Code] ......

What I now want to do is make a cell called "Total Number of Sites" and allow user to input data into "D3" manualy. eg if 3 sites, user input 3 in D3 so D3 = 3.

Since total number of sites = 3, Instead of clicking that button I made 3 times, I want to call the macro 3 times using a nother button.

However it doesn't work. This is what I used:

I have a VERY complex custom data validation formula that is getting crazy. I thought it might be easier to use a user defined VBA function to handle it, but was unsuccessful.

I was able to write a VBA User Defined Function & use it within my spreadsheet to derive the value of another cell, as follows: =IF(OR(ISBLANK(B12),myValidation(B12)),"OK","NG")

I tried using it as a Custom Data Validation on the cell itself (=myValidation(B12)), and I get an error: "a named range you specified cannot be found".

Can the function be used in this way or could someone suggest another way of handling this?

I'm trying to create a model for woodworking where I can enter fractional wood sizes and have Excel create panel sizes and board lengths for cabinetry. I can easily get the inputs formatted in fractions, but then I'd like to have a concatenation formula that joins two fractions and displays a panel size as a fraction. However, when I try to do this, the concatenation formula changes the fractions to decimals.

Example: cell A1 is 3/4" formatted as fraction. Cell A2 is 1 1/2" formatted as fraction. Let's say I want a to concatenate so that A3 reads

3/4 x 1 1/2

But when I use concatenate (A1," x ",A2) the answer in A3 reads

.75 x 1.5

I have a bunch of worksheets with various data that is in columns ranging from 1 upto 20 (this is different with each sheet) across and each column has data rows that has various numbers.

What I want to do is create a sheet when I need to organize some data and control A all the data and paste on to this sheet hit a macro and have it take all columns and stack them in to column A.

Each row will have a different number of populated cells and there are sometimes 5 columns up to 20 columns

Example

Column A - 100 data pieces

Column B - 325

Column C - 100

and so on...

The macro should leave all items in column A but then cut all 325 records (row 1-325) and then paste them starting in cell "A101" then move to Column C and stack those below what was moved form column B and so on.

The code will stop at the first blank space in each row and will go from right to left until it hits the first blank cell in the columns.

I believe in the past that I have told Excel to send the output of the pivot table to different worksheets. For example if I have three regions- the pivot table would send the output to three worksheets and name the worksheets with the three regions.

How do you limit a cell to only display fractions in sixteenths, eighths, quarters, and halves?

I'll give an example.....we use excel to cut list doors in our cabinet shop. On a three panel door it will spit out a fraction of 1/12" (or 5/12, or 7/12 etc), but this looks a lot like 1/2" and the guys frequently cut them the wrong size.

Is there any way to limit a cell so it will only display in these fractions 1/16, 1/8, 1/4, 1/2 etc? and I don't mean by just saying to format in sixteenths, because if I do that then it displays 12/16" when I want it to say 3/4".

I basically want it to round to the nearest sixteenth, but I want it to display to the closest sixteenth, eighth, quarter, half etc.

I have a spreadsheet to calculate piping offsets, center to center.

The formula in B:1 is simple. Take the length in cell A:1 and multiply

it by the square root of 2.

I then increment the length by 1/8 of an inch through cell A:180 and those

results are place in B:2 thru B:180.

The results are display to the nearest 1/16 of an inch. But if the actual

dimension is eight and one half inch, it is displayed as 8 8/16. For aesthetic

reason i wish to display the reducible fractions reduced. So that 8 8/16

is displayed as 8 1/2 inch.

I understand that i may go to each cell and individually format it accordingly

as halves

as quarters

as eights

but was wondering if there is an easier method.

I need to convert the fraction at the beginning of a cells text into the decimal equivelent. for example 1/4-20 3A would give .2500. I have this formula so far that works perfect for fractions that only contain 1 number on each side of the division sign such as 1/2.

I have received help on this topic in the past and I though I had solved the issue, however I realized recently that my formula will not work on any fractions larger than 1 inch. I am converting machine threads in fraction form to a decimal equivalent. here is an example of the what the entry looks like before it is converted.

ex,

1/2-20 3A (becomes .5000)or

3/4-13 2A (becomes .7500)or

1-14 3A this one will not work with my current formula (should be 1.0000);

I have fractions and whole numbers in a column as per the following.

E13 = 3/4

E15 = 5

E17 = 1-1/2

I can use the formula =SUBSTITUTE(E17,"-"," ")+0 which gives the correct result of 2.5 and also correct

for E15 with the answer 5.

But I'm stumped how to get it correct for E13 where it is less than whole number.

I can use the formula =IF(E13=0,0,("0 "&E11)+0) but that won't work for the remainder of the cells.

1.25 is in cell A1. This number will often be buried in a longer part number that may look like ELL-1.25-S40.

I would like to use a formula in cell A2 to display the fractional equivalent (1-1/4).

I know I can use fractions in Excel, eg. 1/4 will yield .25 when formatted for number.

I wanted to allow users to enter fractions in a userform, but alas, it seems to come out as text. So I gave up on the idea, and then it hit me that this forum might be able to provide the answer. If so, maybe I'll include it before I finish my project.

In a nutshell, I want to have users put in fractions, decimals or whole numbers in the userform so I can use it in formulas. (I haven't given any thought to handling combinations like 1 1/2. Later for that). Is there any way for the Excel to know that the textbox on the userform is a number?

Then, calculate how many items are they and separate them into two categories - "Big" and "Small".

Final, I would like to create another worksheet to evaluate how many items belongs to "Big" and "Small" with a column chart to present.

Question : How can I accrue the total of items and sort them into the right categories automatically.

I have been trying to do this for 3 days using "Record Macro", but something always seems to be messed up. The main problem is that the worksheets are protected and the macro asks for the password.

Here is a calendar sheet that I've been working on. It contains the calendar on sheet 1(not important) and a client roster on sheet 2. The client roster gets filled quickly, and obviously gets unorganized. What I'd like to do is create a macro so that when a date is entered into column AA (when a client is discharged), that entire row is moved onto sheet 3 (Discharged). At the same time, I'd like all of the names in column A alphabetized.

I even tried to create an "Organize" button so that the users could just click it and alphabetize. The problem I ran into with that was that the users are using Office 2000, and the names get alphabetized but all of their information no longer matches up.
