# Turn Number Into Text?

Feb 21, 2014

Is there a formula I can use that will look at the following in an excel cell Daily Numbers Report - Summary_2014-01-26.xls

and then convert that into the date value 41,300. And the same thing for all other cells with the same format...so if was Daily Numbers Report - Summary_2014-01-23.xls the formula would convert it to 41,297.

## 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).

## 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.

## 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?

## Format Small Number Of Cells From Text To Number?

The included, small database is formatted as text. It is a text feed from an outside source. I simply want to format the cells into either numbers or general format but not text... seems simple, and it should be, but the only way I can get this done is to go to each cell and access the formula bar and re-enter the number by pressing Enter.

## Automatic Update Of Cell Text Based On Item Number (also Text)?

Mar 28, 2014

I have a column C with different text in cells (item's title). Column D - relevant description for each of the items. 100+ rows.

Now, unfortunately, often a spreadsheet with items is updated with many new items. So I get a new spreadsheet with old and new items mixed. I need, somehow, to import descriptions of the old items (Column D of the old spreadsheet) to the new spreadsheet from old spreadsheet. So I want excel to look for old items in column A of the new spreadsheet and, once found, insert a description in the column B from old spreadsheet.

See attachment : Example for forum.xlsx

## Insert Text In Front Of Text OR Number - User Defined Format

Sep 24, 2008

I can't seem to make user-defined format that puts a text in front of a number and/or a text.

Let's say I have A1: 13, A2: texttext A3: text7 and I want to format a lot of cells to "Ilike 13" / "Ilike texttext" / "Ilike text7"... ie add the same text in the front of the cell, no matter what the content is.

I did manage it seperately, with "texttext" @ for text and "texttext" # for numbers, but what's the general one?

## Number Store As Text & Text Date With 2 Digit Year

Dec 23, 2008

I have a macro which will import data to the worksheet, then perform some formatting on the data, then assign the month & job description based on the lookup table. The problem is that when I import in the data, the data in column B&C will be store as text instead of number and the date in column E will store a 2 digit year instead on 4 digit year which cause error to my macro. I have try to preset the column format to number, i even try to change the column format to number when i run the format macro data. But the problem is still there.

## Importing Text File (excel Treat Row Of Text As Number)

Dec 1, 2007

I created a vb macro to open a text file then process the file then close the file. Here is my problem:

Problem: THe text file has rows of data in it as follows

5155111111551511111111111511111111111111111

This row of text gets converted to

5.16E+42

because excel treats the row of text as a number but i dont want it to do this transition.

When i save the file and then reopen it using say NOTEPAD i see 5.16E+42 and not the long string of text.

## Turn Off Calculations

Feb 2, 2010

I have attached a sample file. All the data is inserted into this file via a text file, except one column "G". Someone in this forum was kind enough to help me in being able to include the city name 'G' to a parcel number 'A'. However, the page is constantly trying to complete 'Calculations' and won't let me do anything without first hitting 'Control Break'.

This is fine except that when I try to save the file into .txt, I don't have the option of 'Control Break' and I have to end up closing the file. As the 'real' file has over 100,000 rows, nothing happens very fast. I have tied changing the 'Calculation Options' but that doesn't seem to change anything.

## Turn Off * As A Wildcard

Aug 28, 2007

The use of * as a wildcard in excel can be extremely useful, however, can it be turned off? I work in the education sector and am currently number crunching GCSE results. When it comes to calculating A* grades versus A grades, B grades, etc, I cannot seem to do it because of the wildcard.
