Remove Zeros
Can anyone suggest a formula that will take a number (a variable amount of placeholders), and remove any trailing zeros.

eg. 6000 = 6, , 23 = 23, 230 = 23, 2300 = 23, 23000 = 23

Also looking for a similar forumla that will strip off any numeric characters from a text string of variable length.

eg ACA2343 = ACA, GNVC23 = GNVC, DAL12 = DAL, CGHJ = CGHJ, CGHJ5002 = CGHJ

Remove Front Zeros & Add Space Before Last 2 Characters
I want to remove the front zero(s) from the front and put a space before the last two letters for the following column of data in Excel:


Final result will have this format and the data are right aligned.
1 MG
20 MG
100 MG
1000 MG

The numbers can vary (e.g. 0150MG, 0025MG,etc.) but the arrangement is always the same: four figures for the first 4 characters and two letters for the last two characters.
The format of the cells containing the data is: “General”

My table has 7 columns and these data are in the 5th column in a worksheet called “ProductSummary”. The number of rows for the records can vary from 10 to over a couple of hundred.

How can I use VBA to: 1) automatically select the table range in that worksheet and reformat all the data in the 5th column.

Zeros As Text In VBA R1C1 Formula
I am writing a macro that populates some columns from other worksheets, and populates other columns with formulas. One of these formulas is a text string that includes a three digit number, with leading zeros if needed. The following formula works perfectly when typed directly into the cells:


But this formula triggers a error message "Compile error: Expected: end of statement" when inserted in my sub. The "00" is highlited when the error message appears.

Retain Leading Zeros In VBA Array
I am just basically sorting through a huge dataset and grabbing unique codes and storing them in an array for later use. Some of the codes are numeric and some are alphanumeric therefore I am storing them as strings. However, when a code is for example 000578 - once a recall this from the array it has become 578. Is there anyway to preserve the entire code, i.e. make the array recall 000578.

Suppress Zeros In A Pivot Table (search Out Any Zeros And Replace With A Blank Cell)
with the data in the attached sheet, I create several different pivot tables that need show the count of the information in the columns M:DU. My issue is that the data is sent to me from a third party and the columns contain zeros that cause the counts to inflate.

What I would like to be able to do is run a macro that will search out any zeros in M:DU and replace them with a blank cell.

Unfortunately the number of rows increases with every monthly reporting cycle so the macro would need to be able to accommodate for that.

Imaginary Zeros In Formulas Vs. Real Zeros
I’ve created a formula for this statistic and I’m happy with the results. Because I’m working with formulas, my only problem is the unwanted zeros. How do I hide zeros that show up automatically (i.e. #3 [blank] and Nov 09-June 10)? I can hide the numbers, but if I enter a zero to one of my future statistics it will not appear and I don’t want that to happen. Is there a way to hide those automatic zeros without affecting my real zeros?

VBA: How Do I Remove A Cell From A Range
I have a function that adds a cell to a range whenever an "a" is placed in that cell using Set myRange= Application.Union(myRange, Target) under Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range). If a value other than "a" is then placed in the same cell I want to remove that cell from myRange. It is fairly random which cells someone will put an "a" in. Does anyone know of a function, or any way to do this. Basically if there are 4 cells in myRange (A1, B4, C6, D8) I just want to remove the last cell and have myRange have 3 cells now (A1, B4, C6).

Remove Empty Array Items In VBA

MyArr(2) = ""
MyArr(3) = "b"

VBA Remove Invalid Range Name Characters

Issue is, sheet names allow characters that range names do no (i.e. #, - etc).

Is there a relatively simple way to clean a sheet name to allow it to be used as a range name.

Code example below. I am using Replace, but unsure how many characters are invalid. Unfortunately I am referencing a third party workbook, so no control over sheet names.

Remove A Project From VBA/VBE Editor
is it possible to remove a VBE project from the VBE editor? This is a project that is opened as a read-only workbook, and then converted into an addin (essentially just to hide the worksheets). It therefore shows in the VBE editor but is in neither the add-ins or workbooks collections. This file is basically used as a source for data for another charts workbook. I need to clear this out of the VBE editor so as to reload an updated version of this workbook every so often.

Add Lookup Via VBA & Remove #N/A
I have two workbooks. One is a database (funding.xls) with many columns - the unique identifier in column C (deal number). The other is a workbook (operational report.xls) for which a worksheet ("Not Yet Finalised Deals") is emailed to me daily and lists the unique identifier (deal number) in column C and a code assigned to that deal number in column G. Sometimes there may be only one or two deals on this spreadsheet, other times up to twenty. What I want is a macro which can be run off the funding.xls database (preferably - although the code below runs off operational report.xls) which inputs the Code from Column G of operational report.xls into column AL of the funding.xls database if the deal number is the same. I have written the following, but it kills Excel. I presume this is because it loops for so long, but doubtless you will find many errors/overkill of references in it

Private Sub ISIN_Click()
'Updates the data sheet for the ISIN codes given
Answer = MsgBox("Is funding.xls Open for WRITE access?", _
vbOKCancel, "Yes")
If Answer = vbCancel Then Exit Sub ' the macro ends if the user selects the CANCEL-button
Dim Row_No As Integer

Remove Non-alpha Characters From Alphanumerics With Option To Remove Numbers
I have found a very useful UDF for removing non-alpha characters from strings. (See below, Credit for posting to Stanley D Grom - Ozgrid post ´Removing Non-alpha Characters From Text´).

Option Explicit

Private Function RemoveCharacters(InString As String) As String
Dim intLoopCounter As Integer
Dim intStringLength As Integer
Dim intASCIIVal As Integer
intStringLength = Len(InString)
InString = LCase(InString)
For intLoopCounter = 1 To intStringLength
intASCIIVal = Asc(Mid(InString, intLoopCounter, 1))
If intASCIIVal >= 97 And intASCIIVal <= 122 Then
RemoveCharacters = RemoveCharacters + Mid(InString, intLoopCounter, 1)
End If
Next intLoopCounter
End Function

Two requests:

1. Could the UDF be modified such that any part of a string contained within brackets is also removed (e.g. "NLGA High Street (West-Enfield), EN6" becomes "nlgahighstreeten")?

2. Can an argument be added to the format of the UDF, such that numbers (0 to 9) are either included or excluded (e.g. RemoveCharacters(A1,1) where the argument ´1´ would include any numbers (0 to 9), so "NLGA2003 High Street (West-Enfield), EN6" becomes "nlga2003highstreeten6")? ´blank´or ´0´would exclude these numbers, i.e. would return "nlgahighstreeten"

COUNT The Zeros
I need to count how many times a set of numbers go past zero, ie. change their sign. they almost never hit zero directly, so i cannot just count "0". example below.

1.890 etc

In this example there would be just 2 sign changes, where the values pass zero (marked red). So i just need a formula that returns the result "2".

I need to do this for about 20,000 rows of data, all in one column

How Do I Get An Average Without Including The Zeros
I am using a formula to include all values greater than zero in my average which has worked fine until i tried to extend the parameters, then it gives me the Value? sign. Does anyone know another way to accomplish what i want?

Using =MODE And Ignoring Zeros
I need a formula that will find the mode from a range of numbers but ignore the 0's. I have worked out the below array formula which seems to work.

{=IF(MODE(IF(N18:P25>0,N18:P25))=1,"Low",IF(MODE(IF(N18:P25>0,N18:P25))=2,"Secure",IF(MODE(IF(N18:P2 5>0,N18:P25))=3,"High")))}

The only thing is, if only one cell contains a number other than 0 (eg. 1,2 or 3) then it returns #N/A. Ideally i'd like it to show the appropriate response for the number that is in the number range. For example - if one cell shows the number 2 and the rest are 0's, i'd like it to show Secure(the response for 2) rather than #N/A.

If Then Formula To Hide Zeros
I have a sheet with many different cells containing formulas. When the sheet has no data entered yet, every cell needs to be blank, including cells that have formulas for data.

I've realized that I can't use the "Show a zero in cells that have zero value" option because if a cell has data entered in it and the result is 0, I sometimes need to see that 0 in the cell. Some cells I need to see the 0 result and some cells I need to see a blank cell if the result is 0.

I just can't figure out how to edit the formulas so they do what I need.

cell P11:

If no data is entered in cell J11, then cell P11 should be blank. But if data is entered in cell J11 and the result in cell P11 is 0, then cell P11 should be blank.

cell BS27...........................

Macro Recognizes The Zeros
I am using the following macro code to reset a table of entered values to zero. The cells are hyperlinked to autoshapes that change colors depending upon the values in the cells. I used the macro recorder to determine the code. My dilemma is this: I have found that the code for my autoshapes only works or recognizes the zeros that I actually typed in during the macro recording (i.e.C46, E46, and G46), it doesnt recognize the zeros that were entered via the autofill (the dragging the handle technique). If I go back and manually type in a zero in say, E54, that autoshape works properly.

My question becomes this, "What is the difference between the zeros that I manually typed in and the ones that were autofilled in". Perhaps I should do this a completely.

Sub RemoveValue()
Range( _
"C46:C66,E46:E66,G46:G66, " _
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "0"
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "0"
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "0"....................
