# Recognising 1 Or Decimals As Numbers

Dec 10, 2007

I have a weird problem with Excel. It recognises all numbers as numbers but excluding the number 1. It is only recognised as text as well as a decimals, for example 3.4. So every time I try and add these values up it completely ignores 1 and decimals.

Have I modified a setting?

## Sort Mixture Of Numbers And Text Using Numbers And Decimals

Nov 13, 2013

I am looking for a VBA to sort rows which include actual numbers and text representing decomposed CTQs (or procedures in IT development)

Code:

Col A Col B
1Billing Accuracy
2Billing Time
3Credit Check Accuracy
4Credit Check Time
2.1Bill preparation

[Code]....

This is the order in which the data is copied and saved from worksheets in which they are developed. Note that 3 rows (8.1.2.1 through 8.1.2.3) are below 8.1.3 (because the three come from Worksheet 8.1.2 which came after worksheet 8.1). The first four rows came from a Top Level Worksheet. I would like to see them intermixed but in proper order.

## Numbers Have Too Many Decimals

Feb 8, 2009

A spreadsheet created by exporting from QuickBooks as a .IIF file is opened in Excel 2003.

A macro multiplies a cell value and returns 1.77999997138977 rather than 1.78. The 1.78 is required for importing back into Quickbooks.

Part of the code is: ...

## Whole Numbers To Decimals & Calculate

Jul 2, 2007

I want to convert the number in a cell, G7, from a whole number into a decimal and then divide that decimal into a whole number in cell E7 and give me the quotient in cell E8.

ie:312 = 6.0
286 = 5.5
260 = 5.0
234 = 4.5
208 = 4.0
182 = 3.5
156 = 3.0
130 = 2.5
104 = 2.0
78 = 1.5
52 = 1.0

Could this also be done with the entire range of numbers from 312 to 52 and giving decimals of 6.0, 5.9, 5.8 etc.

## Numbers Are Converting To Decimals

Dec 6, 2007

I received a complaint from one of my colleague that he is facing sudden problem with Ms-Excel(2002)
The problem is When he feeds number 2 in to a cell it automatically converts in to 0.02. I tried using "Decrease decimal" and "format cells" option and even through uninstalling office and reinstalling a different version but the problem still continues.

## Numbers Changing To Decimals

Apr 4, 2008

I have received an excel file from an external source. Every time I change a number in a cell it reverts to a 2 decimal number. eg. I type in 8710 and it converts the value to 87.10. I have looked at the number formats, cleared the numbers format but I keep getting the same result. I have also e-mailed the file to someone else and everything is ok on their computer. Is there a property in the excel program that I need to change?

## Lookup Whole Numbers From Decimals

Aug 8, 2008

I 'm not sure why my custom function "minimize" is not working... I tried to do this with one of excels built in functions and would prefer a solution that way, but had to go the VBA route in the mean time. x and theta are paired together and I'm trying to reduce a select number of values x by their corresponding ratio.s It's corresponding ratio is determined by what degree value theta corresponds to. I wanted to do an if statement, but got confused...

=if((B2>=\$J2)*(B2<\$J3)) , A2*K2 , if((B2>=\$J3)*(B2<\$J4) , A2*\$K3 , if((B3>=\$J4)*(B3<\$J5) , A3*\$K4, .... etc. etc. etc........................

## Convert Numbers With Decimals To Percentage

Nov 11, 2008

I have a spread sheet with over 200 numbers like 3.3, 4.5, 6.6 and so on. Is there and easy way to convert them to Percentages?

## Cell With Name, But Want To Remove Everything Else, Numbers, Decimals Etc.

Feb 25, 2009

I'm trying to clean up a very large list of last names. Only one individual cell, but that cell includes numbers, decimal points, and spaces inbetween the numbers. All I want left in the cell is the last name. I have just under 100,000 to do! How would I go about this? Using Excel 2007.....

## Converting Hours To Numbers, Decimals

Nov 10, 2009

How do I convert hours into numbers and/or decimals?

Example:
Column A Column B
---------- -----------
30:05:00 to 30.05
26:10:00 to 26.10
262:47:00 to 262.47

Figures under Column B refer to info that I would like to get.

## What Numbers Have No Decimals In About 500-1000 Cells

Mar 17, 2009

I use a worksheet full of formulas to know what divisors a number have, but i need to see what numbers have no decimals in about 500-1000 cells. Is there a formula whitch computer can use to see if it shows a number or not (if a number have or dont have decimals)?

## Formula To Delete Whole Numbers But Leave Decimals?

Apr 22, 2014

I've got a spreadsheet that's basically a large list of numbers, both whole and decimal. For example, let's say this is in cells A1-A5:

4
0.65
1.34
3
8.2

Is there a formula to get rid of all of the whole numbers but leave the decimals? (What I mean by that is I don't need 4 or 3 as they're whole, but I need the decimals to be left alone).

I know it's probably a really awkward question but I have over 2,000 lines to go through, it will take a long time to do manually.

Perhaps if it's not possible to a formula to delete entries, maybe just make all whole numbers say something like "NO", so that I can sort the column in A-Z order and delete all of the 'NO's quickly by highlighting them all together.

## Cell Format: Only Numbers (no Date) With Any Amount Of Decimals

Sep 8, 2009

I need a cell to restrict the input:
-Only numbers are allowed.
-No date posible.
-Any amount of decimals (they must all be shown in the cell).

I tried using the data validation and using the IsNumber() to restrict any non numeral input. The problem with this approach is that if the user enters a date; it apprears as a date format (eg: "5.May"). I'm using an european excel, where the decimal separator is a comma instead of a point; so if a user accidentaly types "5.5" instead of "5,5"; the cell will show "5.May".

I also tried the cell format/number/number format. The problem in here is that I dont know how many decimal positions will the input number have; and I need them all to be shown.

## Excel 2003 :: Concatenate Formula With Numbers With Decimals

Jul 12, 2012

I'm using excel 2003 and have a problem regarding some code.

Dit(a, b) = "=" & Hit(a, (d - 12 - e) + f) & "/" & (Pro & ".NrE.sol")

Where "Hit(a, (d - 12 - e) + f)" can be numbers with decimals.

When I run the code the result is nothing, unless the number is a number without decimals.

If I use just "Dit(a, b) = Hit(a, (d - 12 - e) + f)" it shows the right number.

## Convert Degrees Minutes & Decimals Of A Minute (12° 34.567') To Degrees And Decimals Of A Degree (12.57611°)

Oct 29, 2008

I am trying to convert Degrees Minutes & Decimals of a minute (12° 34.567') to Degrees and decimals of a degree (12.57611°). I have the formula to convert latitude, that is two digits, but it doesn't want to work with longitudes, three digits. (see attachment). This is the formula that I am using:

=IF(A2="","",(INT((LEFT(A2,3)+MID(A2,4,6)/60)*100000)/100000)&"d")

## Drop Down Not Recognising

Nov 24, 2008

i have a drop down list in cell b16 it has suppliers names in and it has several which are not all one word ie "monk and crane" the thing is that in cell d29 i have a drop down list that is dependant on whats in cell b16 in cell b16 i am using another data validation list using the code

## Date Recognising Formula

Aug 11, 2008

I have a workbook with three worksheets - 1st is an event register, 2nd is a calender (manually done, with no formulas due to format problems I couldn't solve), 3rd is a summary.

I am trying to work out the following;
The first column of the 1st sheet (event register) requires a date.
The second column requires an 'event', from a drop box or list (of seven possibilities). These are working fine.

Is there a formula I can use theat when a user enters a date, say 1 Jan 08 (or the format is "Thursday, 1 January 2008") AND a certain event, say "CALL" that this will automatically populate the next worksheet (calender) on that corresponding date (1 Jan 08)?

There are seven possibilities for each date (eight including "blank" or ""), which I am sure I will be able to extend to each day of the calender once I work this formula out.

I have already formulated the second worksheet (calender) to count the freqency of events into the third worksheet (summary). Hopefully these wont effect the formula I am looking for.

## Recognising The Start Of A Four-week Cycle

May 5, 2009

Work shifts run on a four-week, 28-day cycle always beginning on a Monday.

In 2009, the first such cycle began on Monday 12/1/09.

In my 2003 worksheet, I have the current year in A1. I want the date of the beginning of the first cycle in that year to appear in B1. This should update automatically when the year in A1 is updated.

## Recognising If Data Is A Member Of An Array/group

Apr 13, 2007

how I can have excel determine what array or predetermined group a piece of data belongs to as it loops through it.

For example...

Say I import the A column via .csv file, I want to then run a macro that recognises the data and then catergorise it... the desired outcome would be the red text in the C column.

I want to be able to added the variable members to each group as such, I'm presuming this is best by a declaration.

## SUMIF Function: Recognising 1 Word Among A Series Of Text Within A Cell

Aug 8, 2002

I would like to make the SUMIF function conditional on recognising 1 word among a series of text within a cell.
For example, SUM all cells containing word PINK, even if there are other words in the cell also.
I cannot get the SUMIF function to pick words out of a cell, it will only SUM up if the whole text matches what is in the cell.

## Getting Decimals To Appear On Graph?

Jul 17, 2014

I am creating a graph with a wide range of values (0.06 - 300). The smaller values are barely visible on my column graph. I have tried all of the tricks I know. Any way to get the smaller values to show up instead of just hovering towards the bottom of the graph?

## Ratio With Decimals?

Oct 14, 2009

I am trying to get an exact ratio in excel but am unable to do so. Example:

60,000/58000 = 1.03. The ratio should then be 1.03:1. But excel is showing this is 1:1. Here is my formula

PHP
=TEXT(E55/E56,"0")&":1" . I need it to show it to two decimals.

## Sum Only Positive Decimals

May 23, 2014

I have some problem when I would like to sum only positive decimals on userform, I would like to separate the numbers with comma (",") and sum them, the format should be "0,0" and only numbers and "," can be given in textboxes. How should I do this?

## Round Down To Two Decimals

Dec 16, 2009

i am looking for some formula to round off a decimal number

e.g. A1=8.288
if I use the formula ROUND(A1,2) the result is 8.29.

But I am looking for a result 8.288. That means it shoukd not round off rather the after decimal we should have only two numbers.

8.288 should be 8.28
27.4627 should be 27.46

## Removing Decimals

Feb 4, 2007

i have columns of prices in 2 decimal format that I'd like to manipulate, some prices are whole dollars(no cents & no decimals ) and most are dollars and cents in decimal format-- but to do it successfully, i need the decimal removed. I looked at the "format" function but it doesn't seem to allow for that.

is there any way I can have these prices converted to "cent" format( ie removing the decimal, where applicable), showing them not as "dollars & fractions" but as "cents" i'm sure that would solve the problem for me last time I did it by hand and vowed there had to be an easier way!

## Warning When More Then Two Decimals Are Used

Mar 30, 2007

I am trying to put together a code so that when a user enteres more then two decimal points in the cell value they should get a warning regardless if they formatted the cell to show 2 decimals or not...

Simply the problem is on the sheet I have a lot of people format the cell to show two decimals but when you copy and paste the cell values to other sheets the decimals are still there which causes problems.

I am intermediete in VBA so if someone can shoot me some example codes I think I can make it work on my sheet.

## Decimals To Percentages

Jan 4, 2008

I am trying to combine to cells containing percentages, however when I do the percentages turn into decimals. I have tried using the text funtion, but that just returns the full number 1, no decimals or percentages.

## Rounding Down Decimals

Jul 22, 2008

I'm copying a column range containing numbers with varying decimals from one worksheet to another. The new worksheet and column are set to have no more than two decimals places in the cells through the formatting options.

However, numbers stay showing their original amount of decimal places, so I tried hard-coding the format with:

Sheets("Toolset Scorecard").Columns("G:G").NumberFormat = "0.00"

## Ignore Decimals In A Formula?

Mar 2, 2014

Let's say I have a set of values (A1:A10) where each contains a number, with a varied amount of decimal places (some may have 0, some may have 10)...how can I make a formula in cell B1 that averages A1:A10, ignoring the decimal places (rounding to the nearest whole number)

For example, if this was A1:A10

93.11
94
92.12321
95.1
96.7
98.1
99
100.03
88.6677
85.6675

If I did the Average (=AVG(A1:A10)), I would get 94.2498. But I don't want this, I want the formula to take into account the numbers rounded to the nearest whole number, meaning, I want to take the average of..

93
94
92
95
97
98
99
100
89
86

Which would give me a value of 94.3.. In this example, there isn't much of a difference, but I was simplifying the numbers for time sake

## Round Off Number With Decimals At The End?

Jun 21, 2014

I want round off number to be with the decimals (usually decimals r discarded for round off feature). I ll be able to explain better with an example.

10.36+10.36= 20.72. If i round it up, it vl be 21.
what i am tryin is to get 21.00 after round off.

I prepare my bills in excel and after total of all products, if i get a decimal number, I would like it be rounded off to whole number with decimal and 00 at the end (eg. 21.00 instead of 21.27 or 22.00 instead of 21.77). I tried to change decimals but when I select 2 decimal places, it gives me the actual fig(eg. 21.27 instead of 21.00)

I am already using =sum for the total so cannot use another formula (as far as i know, 1 cell can have only 1 formula. Dunno if multiple can be used in a single cell).
