# Returning Only Numerical Values

May 11, 2009
it seems that excel is deciding what type of array this is by evaluating the type of the first cell in each column and applying this type to the rest of the array's column. Problem is that i want all values to be brought in, text and numerical.

Dim VArray As Variant

Sub DA201()

If FileThere(Path & "DA201.xls") Then

GetDataTowers Path & "DA201.XLS", "", "DataRange", Sheets _("Towers").Range("CStart"), False, False

Else

MsgBox ("File DA201.xls not found. Click OK to continue")

End If

End Sub

Public Sub GetDataTowers(SourceFile As Variant, SourceSheet As String, SourceRange As String, TargetRange As Range, Header As Boolean, UseHeaderRow As Boolean)

Dim rsCon As Object

Dim rsData As Object

Dim szConnect As String

Dim szSQL As String

Dim n As Integer

Dim row, m As Integer

If Val(Application.Version) < 12 Then

szConnect = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _

"Data Source=" & SourceFile & ";" & _

"Extended Properties=""Excel 8.0;HDR=No"";"

Else....................................

I'm trying to streamline my spreadsheet a bit. Sometime last year I managed to use the formula found (on the attached file) in cell K4 to assign a numerical value to a lettered grade. However, it's been a year or so since I thought about it and so I've completely forgotten how to edit it to make it more appropriate for this spreadsheet!

Essentially what I'm trying to do is a workaround for what I've already done in columns E and F: I'm trying to show the difference between two grades (letters) as a numerical value. Is there a way to do this, or is the VLOOKUP work around I've used in columns E and F going to be the simplest way?

I have a formula in column A of the following sheet. The problem is that when the entry in cell H contains a letter as well as a number then the formula in column a returns 0.

Also if the value for false in the forumula is changed from 0 i.e to 1 or 2, then a value is returned in column A (this is shown in the red highlighted cells).

Does anyone have any idea why this is?

creating functions in excel and would like to hire someone who can assist me in creating the following functions: Column A (For Numerical Values Less Than or = to 100): Column B Value should be (+10)

Example 1: If a numerical value of 90 is placed in Column A then Column B Numerical Auto Value should be 80+10 (190). Example 2: If a numerical value of 35 is placed in column A then Column B Numerical Auto Value should be 35+10 (45) and so on. Another important point is that if the values in column A are copy and pasted Column B should automatically discharge the values visibly as the examples stated above is this possible? If not i'll need to have this done.

Also there are other numerical values that must be added in Column A (basically for every increase in numerical value of 100 there are to be different numerical plus factors in accordance to Column A). Column A (For Numerical Values greater than 100 but less than 200): Column B Value should be (+15).......

I want to set up an if statement that does the following, where 'a' and 'b' are numerical values.

If 'a' is not a multiple of 'b' Then

...

Else

...

End If

How can I write this so VBA can understand it?

I've got a series of values in a column as follows:

10 Mb

10 Mb

1000 Mb

1000 Mb

114 Mb

128 Mb

128 Mb

Obviously 1000 mb is more than 10 mb, but it sorts as second in the list

because it starts with a "1". How do I tell Excel to sort by the entire

numerical value instead of the first number?

I need to convert levels to numerical values and then: Firstly, add together two vlookup values THEN divide by 2 to get an average AND THEN see if this average AND a second, individual lookup value are above a specified another value, which may be different. IF all these criteria are set, return, "yes" if either the first or second, or both criteria are not met then "no"

Or put it another way. if lookup values A+B/2>"5" AND C>"3" then "yes", Else "no"

Lookup chart:

P11

P22

P33

P44

P55

P66

1c7

1b9

I'm making a spreadsheet for the homes I'm looking at purchasing and wanted a way to calculate automatically which one has the most things we're looking for.

So for example, if a home has a walk in closet, it would say "yes". If it doesn't it obviously would say "no".

Is there a way to assign a number value in a totals column where "yes"=1 and "no"=2?

Or a way to make colors equal a certain value?

Where I'd make all the "yes" items green and then a green cell = 1, a yellow cell = 2, and a red cell = 3.

I am trying to conditionally sum numbers from a matrix. On the vertical axis, there will be duplicate values (text) who's rows should be summed, and on the horizontal axis I need to sum in between two numbers that will be in sequential order (such as dates). The real tough part for me is that the data field that I will be summing from has non numerical values, like dashes. Obviously, I don't want to sum the dashes, but it throws off any formulas I have tried (like sum arrays).

My hopes are to use as little memory as possible so my file size wont get too big and to not have to use macros (I do not really use them), although I am willing to try if they are basic.

In the example below, I want to sum rows for the letter "A" and in between numbers "2" and "4."

# 1 2 3 4 5

A2 6 5 4 2

B4 5 6 4 1

C-----

A4 2 1 2 1

E1 1 2 2 2

Y Variable: A

X Variable Min: 2

X Variable Max: 4

Correct Result = 20.00 = (6+5+4+2+1+2)

I often have to OCR files in Adobe and then copy the data as a table into Excel. Sometimes when I move the data over these little boxes with question marks inside will appear infront of the data in the cells. I can delete the square from the spell by just backspacing after it but I don't want to have to do that for hundreds of cells individually. Googling around I found a formula: =RIGHT(A1, LEN(A1)-1)

That formula will get rid of the box, once the box is removed I need to be able SUM the values, but I am still unable to. I've tried to copy and paste the values before using the SUM function but that does not work, I've also tried to SUM before removing the box but that does not work either. I've found that if I double click in the cells after using the formula that it will allow me to use the SUM function but that would require me to double click hundreds of cells individually. Also, just in case this matters, a little green flag appears in the upper left corner of the affected cells after I use the previously mentioned formula.

Is it possible once you have assigned text a numerical value (example: Adam = 12) to add them together? (example: adam =12 and bob = 8, therefore adam + bob = 20)

I am attempting to count from a spreadsheet the reference number of a customer (numbers and text) based on two criteria.

1, If column G= Requested

2, Column I = Meeting

Count Row E

I thought a sumproduct was best and have started using it for the first time, I thought this should work but I keep getting a #NUM! error.

I have tried with numbers and it works but the non numeric aspect is difficult.

I am trying to do is a summary of numerical values, based on several conditions.

column a column b column c

local loop live cross connect

loop A cancel 100

long haul live 10000

long haul pend canc 1000

loop Z live 100

x-conn live cross connect

In column a, i have several choices and i want to focus on those choices that fall into column B "live" or "pend canc" and then only have numerical data in column C

I've tried several different formulas like

=SUMPRODUCT((a30:a38="Loop A")*(a30:a38="Long Haul")+(b30:b38="Live"),cX30:cX38)

I know the result of this should be 111000 but it's not working...I usually get n/a. I know about using cntl-shift-enter to use the formula properly.

I can get one variable to sum up properly using =SUMIF(M9:M21,"Live",BW9:BW21)

but, that leaves out anything that is pend-canc

I have also tried =SUM(IF((a9:a21="long haul")*(b9:b21="live"),cX9:cX21)) which gives back a value that is accurate.....

Hi all, first post here.

I've been asked to do something in excel i can't seem to get my head around.

My client provides me with data in the form

1c, 1b, 1a, 2c, 2b, 2a, 3c etc... where 1a is the lowest.

I need to find a way of working out the difference between these, e.g.

edit: 2a - 1c = 5

I've been working on it and have made some headway by splitting these with MID function and then using CODE to try and work out a unique ID for each, but i can't help feeling there's an easier way!

I am working up a workbook template that will be used to process survey results. The way I ultimatley want it to work is that the user can paste data from another application into a worksheet in Excel, and then view analysed results on a second sheet (which are processed via formulae on a third, hidden sheet).

The problem I have is this: the data from the program that's capturing them are text values. For example, column B contains answers to a question where participants rate an experience, and the values are either "Excellent", "Good", "Fair", "Poor", "Awful". I want these to be converted to numerical values, on a scale where "Excellent" = 5 and "Awful" = 1, so that I can then average these.

So, the question is: Can I somehow tell Excel that "Excellent" = 5 and "Good" = 4 etc, and then use AVERAGE(B:B) on the text data and get a number back?

I did think of having an intermediate sheet that used VLOOKUP to create a copy of the first sheet (where the user pastes the text data) with the text replaced by numbers. But, because I don't know in advance how many rows will contain data (i.e. how many survey results there will be), I have to assume on the high side and copy down 50,000 rows. But, this takes ages to calculate.

how to find a certain criteria and delete the entire row that the criteria is in. I am more interested in finding certain criteria with vba, in my case any text/non numerical values and clear contents from that cell for the entire worksheet while retaining the rest of the cells that have numerical values in them. My data has --- in cells that represents missing data which would be easier if it was completely blank.

I'm putting together an Environment Threat Assessment for work and want to automate as much of it as I can to alleviate the amount of time ppl have to spend putting values in. My main problem is I have three very important columns: Likelihood, Success Rating and Risk Rating. Likelihood and Success Rating values will be selected from the following:

VL - Very Low

L - Low

M - Medium

H - High

VH - Very High

Each of these is given a value: VL = 1, L = 2, M = 3, H = 4, VH = 5.

The Risk Rating is the result of multiplying the Likelihood and Success Rating. So a Likelihood of Medium and a Success Rating of Low will give a Risk Rating of 6. Therefore, the cells on my spreadsheet would look like this:

Likelihood Success Rating Risk Rating

M L 6

The issue is I want a couple of things to occur. Firstly I want keep the values in my Likelihood and Success Rating cells as letters (ie. VL, H, VH etc) rather than numbers, while still generating a number result in the Risk Rating cells. Secondly I'd like to be able to change the colour of the Risk Rating cell to reflect the number it gets assigned. For example Green for < 8, Amber for 9 – 14 and Red for 15 – 25. I've been trying to do this with array formulas and am basically going around in circles with no success.

I have a formula that counts all instances of the letters a, b and c in a range and assigns them a value of 1 unless they are in the M column in which case a, b or c counts 4.

=SUM(COUNTIF(J2:AB2,{"a*","b","c"}),OR(LEFT(M2)={"a","b","c"})*4)

This worked well but now I need to modify the weightings across this range. My new goal is to count all instances of a,b and c in the range J2:AB2 but have M column a,b, c's = 2 and N:R column a,b,c's equalling 4. Letters other than a,b or c count as 0.

Example:

J2...K2...L2...M2...N2...O2...P2...Q2...R2...

A....B.....B.....C.....B.....D....B.....C.....E

the output of the above sequence should be

1+1+1+2+4+4+0+4+4+0 = 21

My company is soon to be rolling out a new payment system, and I'd like to be able to track commission for everything I sell. Briefly, we get paid via a percentage of the company's gross profit, and the way in which the company gets paid is tiered. (the cellphone business)

So, If a customer activates a plan thats below $39.99, we get paid X amount. If it's below $59.99 we get paid Y amount, and so on and so forth, there are multiple different tiers.

What I want to do is set up a list via data validation so that I can pick what plan they have (via the name of the plan) and have it return a numerical value (ie $39.99) and also have the ability to pick text messaging, etc as options so that the workbook will add the monthly rates (39.99 + 14.95) and then have it return value for the right priceplan tier.

If this is confusing, I apologize for not being more clear, but attached is an example. The top one is what I'm actually trying to code, but the bottom is completely filled in, so you can get a more clear sense of what I'm trying to do. Honestly I'm not even sure if it can be done.

I'd like help writing a single formula that assigns either a numerical 1 or 0 to a cell based on values from two other cells.

By way of background, I'm working with three columns. Cells in column F contains values from 1 to 4. Cells in column G contain values from 5 to 11. Cells in column H are currently blank.

I need a single formula that will insert either a numerical 1 or a 0 into column H according to the following conditions.If F3 = 1 and G3 = 5 or 6 or 7 then let H3=1 otherwise let H3=0

If F3 = 2 and G3 = 7 or 8 or 9 then let H3=1 otherwise let H3=0

If F3 = 3 and G3 = 9 or 10 or 11 then let H3=1 otherwise let H3=0

If F3 = 4 and G3 = 9 or 10 or 11 then let H3=1 otherwise let H3=0

I want to pull 'values' from a website off into column's "A" "B" and "C."

What I am looking for is:

Column A: The current date!

Column B: The closing VIX value of the day!

Column C: The 10-day-moving average value of the VIX for that same day!

All values come from this website: [URL].......

(full link so it doesn't look sketchy; also a link to mainwebsite: [URL] ..... )

What would be the formula for this? Or how would one go about this? And preferably the time to pull these values would be at alterable, but ideal time is hard to choose right now... Need to think about it!!!

I extracted data going back to 1980 from Bloomberg and realized that BB uses abbreviations rather than pure numerical values. For example, 3,000,000 is "3M," 300,000,000 is "300M," etc. I need a macro that converts "M" into the actual value, "B" into the actual numerical value, etc. For example, a macro that converts "3M" into 3,000,000. I know that I can identify the values in VBA with "###M."

I am quite inexperienced with Excel and I am struggling to understand how should I set up a formula, within the data validation function to achieve the following:

I need to restrict a certain set of cells, for people to be able to input only the following values: "1", "0.5", "A", "H", "0.5A" (or 0.5a), "0.5H" (or 0.5h)

And I would need the data validation tool not to include blank cells.

Is anyone aware of some way to use the " dynamic named range approach" to only select the cells with numerical values in a column and name this range?

I've looked at the examples on this site but can't find any solution to this particular problem although I have a feeling that this should be possible.
