# Turning Words Into Numbers

May 30, 2006i would like to know how to turn the word beside into numbers, ie if b=2,e=5,s=60,i=10,d=4,

also can this word be in the one cell or would it have to be entered separately, ie one letter per cell??

The format of the text in which I need to extract numbers is as follows:

23411268 - 23411270

Need to extract the following:

23411268

23411269

23411270

These numbers have to be listed in three seperate rows.

Usually this question is asked the other way around, but I have a somewhat unique problem. A certain website gives out tables filled with numbers. Positive numbers show in black font and negative numbers show in red font, but unfortunately, negative numbers do not include the minus sign -- the font is red and that's it!

I need a macro (or any other solution) that will turn the red font numbers to negative ones and would possibly format the cell to show negative numbers in red (I guess the last part is easier). The main problem is searching for the red font numbers and turning them negative.

I've been using conventional method to do this and it's time consuming. I would like to total up 2 column. A multiply B to be exact. Below are some examples:

Table 1 - Before totaling up:

Quantity

Product

5

2 x Button A White

3

4 x Button B Pink

4

5 x Ribbon A Black

2

3 x Thread A White

6

2 x Cloth A Blue

Table 2 - After totaling up:

Quantity

Product

10

Button A White

12

Button B Pink

20

Ribbon A Black

6

Thread A White

12

Cloth A Blue

I need to have the sum of the "Quantity" multiply "Product". Or in short A x B.

And the end result need to have the number and "x" sign removed while keeping on the the products names. (2 x ) Take note it's "number" space "symbol" space.

I populated an XL sheet from another one using a formula. However, in order to use my new sheet I need all the cells to be numbers and not formulas. Is there a way to turn all the formulas into numbers, leaving behind just the numerical value ? Basically like pasting only values, only without having have to paste them somewhere else.

All the numbers I've imported from an app analytics company into excel which are greater than 1.0 appear as numbers (to the right side of the cell) and all the numbers less than 1.0 appear as text (to the left side of the cell). I want all the numbers appearing as text to appear as numbers so I can multiply them with other cells.

I've clicked format cells - number but this has no effect. I click format cells -protection - unlocked but this has no effect.

I have thousands of rows with all numbers less than 1.0 as text instead of numbers. What's the easiest way to mass convert them all to numbers seeing as the above options haven't worked.

I don't want to have to click through thousands of rows to edit it manually...

I run a report from a scheduling software that gives me the total hours and minutes for a weekday for my bus routes. For instance, 253 hours and 23 minutes for one day. Now though, I need to calculate how many hours and minutes for the entire month. The report will only come out with 253h23. I need to somehow take that, turn it into time and then multiply it by 20 (January weekdays). But I need real hours and minutes and I'm having trouble getting them.

View 3 Replies View RelatedI'm trying to format numbers in a cell into words. For example, if I type 1 in a cell, I would like it to show the word Optimistic. If i type 2 in the cell I would like it to show the word "Realistic", 3 to show "Pessimistic".

How would I be able to do that?

For my research in medicine I build a spreadsheet with google docs. After having received most of the data I transfered the spreadsheet into an excel file. The next thing I would like to do is to convert the words in the spreadsheet into numbers so I can calculate with them. For example: every row in column E consist of one of the two words: 'man' or 'woman'. I would like to convert the word 'man' into a '0' and the word 'woman' into a '1'. Is it possible to write a formula or function for this?

I have a column with the month as the full word (January or February, etc.).

I need to translate the words to numbers in a separate column (1 or 2, etc.)

I haven't been able to find a function that can help perform this task. "If"

statements will not go further than 8 levels. The month function will not

recognize it because it's not part of a full date. What other options do I

have? I feel like I'm missing something obvious here...

I am attempting to create a chart from data generated outside of Excel 2003 SP2, that has been Copied and Pasted into Excel. There is no metadata associated with this data. I have created a list with the data once it has been pasted into Excel 2003 SP2.

The Workbook has five (5) worksheets, all with the default names (Sheet1, Sheet2, etc.). I paste the data into Sheet1 and reference this from the other worksheets. Sheet2 shows the charts for all the data. Sheet3, Sheet4, and Sheet5 are each for different regions, North, South and West respectively. I would like to enter the formula into Cell: Sheet5!M5 so it auto populates with the appropriate and correct information. Sheet1 information is as follows;

Column B has a header of "CreateDate" and is in the format of; 4-Jun-07

Column O has a header of "Business Unit" and has three (3) possible answers, North, South or West. **I have attached a screen shot of the two colums used named, "Columns.Used.png". I have hidden the columns in between as they contain confidential information.**

I would like a formula that gives a total of one if both criteria are met. The criteria is as follows;

IF Column B on Sheet1 equals Cell L5 on Sheet5 AND Column O on Sheet1 equals West THEN the total should appear. **I have created and attached a sample spreadsheet "Sample.Data.zip"that contains only basic data on Sheet1 and Sheet5 as those are the only sheets relevant.**

Any easy function to convert numbers into words?

I a looking for an easy function to transform numbers into words as shown :

Value------Output :

12624-----Rs Twelve thousand six hundred and twenty four only

12624.24--Rs Twelve thousand six hundred and twenty four and twenty four paise.

Hopefully the currency should be changeable ( dynamic) i.e Rupees to Dollars..

In India , we also use lacs and crores , so something in those lines if possible...

I need a way to randomly generate a number( up to hundred trillion) in cell A1 and in cell B1 have the number appear in word form. Example: 129,114,023,131,453 will appear in A1 and in B1: one hundred twenty-nine trillion one hundred four-teen billion twenty-three million one hundred thirty-one thousands four hundred fifty-three The hyphens are important, commas between the numbers are not necessary. I know that for A1 I can use Randbetween() function to generate the numbers. The problem is generating the word form with the hyphens....

View 9 Replies View RelatedI have a worksheet with a row of mixed cells near the top. By "mixed", I mean some cells have only numeric data (numeric-cells) and some have only words (word-cells).

GOAL: I want to sort the columns to the following order:

First all the columns with only numeric-cells in the mixed row, with those columns sorted in DESCENDING numeric order of the numeric-cells in the mixed row; followed by the columns with only word-cells in the mixed row sorted by ASCENDING alphabetic order.

So far all I have been able to accomplish is:

First all the columns with only numeric-cells in the mixed row, with those columns sorted in ASCENDING numeric order of the numeric-cells in the mixed row; followed by the columns with only word-cells in the mixed row sorted by ASCENDING alphabetic order. This was accomplished by a simple sort using ASCENDING order on the mixed row.

OR

First all the columns with only word-cells in the mixed row, with those columns sorted in DESCENDING alphabetic order of the word-cells in the mixed row; followed by the columns with only numeric-cells in the mixed row sorted by DESCENDING numeric order. This was accomplished by a simple sort using DESCENDING order on the mixed row.

This may sound as confusing to you as it does to me, so I have attached an example file showing hypothetical Input Data and the Desired Result.

I did the example file in multiple steps, but that's too painful in the general case where calculations determine what is in which cell in the mixed row. All data are calculated, even the word-cell data AND so dependent on other data, and the columns in the mixed row that are word-cells and those that are numeric cells don't remain the same.

Eventually I'd like to do this with a macro, so if VBA has some power to do this that EXCEL commands don't, then that's fine.

I could probably live with the final result as numeric-cell columns sorted in DESCENDING order followed by word-cell columns sorted in DESCENDING order, but I haven't even been able to accomplish that AND it's not quite the goal.

I'm looking to do the following below: column A would have numbers, column B would have words and a few columns over i would have the total of each same word

column A column B

trying to open a txt so I can copy the numbers or words into a cell.

there are 5 numbers in each txt, that need to go into 5 cells.

I have the application.getopenfile and when I click on the test file, it gives me an error. that its can't open or do that operation.

I'm trying to build a function, but I haven't been able to successfully navigate some of the eccentricities of Excel formula-building.

Right now I am working on counting all of the cells that contain numbers (so likely just a =COUNT function), but will be eventually getting other descriptive stats as well. My problem is that I would like to create a formula that will perform the counting/mean calculation, etc., but only on a specific column that has the header cell that contains several specific words. Rather than having to type in the target words for each column, I would like to have the target words in the function be imported from multiple designated cells.

For example,

I want to find how many numbered cells are found in column E headed as "dog brown," but I also have columns headed as "cat brown" "dog black" etc. (which I will be using the formula on later) to paint a small picture, in my descriptive table, "dog" is in B31 and "brown" is in C30, then "cat" in B32 and "black" in D30.

I have a column with rows from 41:254, the first cell contains a word, and the next is blank, and this repeats the whole way down.

a previous macro i run changes one of the cells in the range (one of the ones containing a word) to a number value, i want to write a further macro to select this cell that has now changed. when it changes it will be the only cell in the range with a number in.

I have a set of data in once cell and its strung out. I'm trying to pull the numbers that follow certain words from that data. That's easy enough with the find and mid function for the first one. But after that I have a repeating word (see below) and different numbers that follow it. So I want to pull the second number string after that word, the third and so on.

I've attached an excel file that explains this better.
