VLookup In Reports Downloaded From SAP & AS400

Nov 29, 2006

Report 1 is downloaded from SAP into Excel and Report 2 is downloaded from AS400 into Excel.

Report1 contain 3 columns as follows:
Column A - Invoice #
Column B - Invoice date
Column C - Invoice Amt

Report2 contain 5 columns as follows:
Column A - Invoice #
Column B - Ship Date
Column C - Check #
Column D - Amt Paid
Column E - Payment date

I tried to use the Vlookup function in Report 1 Column D to lookup the matching Invoice # in report 2 and bring in the corresponding Amt paid. It did not work and I assume that this is because of the formats in the downloaded files. I did try to change formats for the columns involved but this did not work. This function works fine if both files were setup in Excel, however in these downloaded files even though saved as excel workbooks, something prevents this function from working. I do know for a fact that the same invoice number does show up in both these files but the vlookup does not pull up the required Amt paid from Report 2.

Format The Downloaded Data

Feb 15, 2010

I often download data from various web sites - this is data that is displayed on a web page in tabular format, and often consists of hundreds of lines. I typcally Select All, then Copy, then go to a blank spreadsheet and Paste. After a bit of reformatting, I'm usually in good shape. The problem is, that sometimes the contents of a cell might have been "5-2" (without the quotes), and it comes through on Excel as "May 2". Without proofing each cell, I can't just make the assumption that the original was "5-2" - it might have been "5-2-10" (but not a date).

The normal Paste Special options are not available when I do this, so I can't paste them in as values. I have tried formatting the worksheet at text prior to doing the copy but that does not work.

Text To Columns With Data Downloaded From Website?

Jun 14, 2013

I have a problem with text to columns with data downloaded from our website. The address field is coming through with the whole address in a single cell with multiple rows. I have tried the following but all I get is the first row in the first colimn and the rest of the data:

Text to Columns, Delimited, Other and ALT-0010
Text to Columns, Delimited, Other and ALT-010
Text to Columns, Delimited, Other and ctrl-j

I have even created a macro to replace the hard returns with commas and then use comma as a delimiter but that still does the same.

I have attached a file with two of the records (1 tab for the original data and one with the commas)

Finally, I have tried this in both 2003 & 2010 and get the same issue in both.

No Cells Appear In Downloaded Spreadsheet

Jun 19, 2014

The government was just kind enough to send me some data I asked for in the form of a spreadsheet. Came in a Yahoo email. Document was blahblah.xls

I downloaded it.

Clicked and Excel opened it without any error messages.

What I see is one white bar in the spreadsheet section. It has three sections where you would have three columns.

On the left it says F279, which I take to be the cell address.

Then to the right of that there's a sort of elongated blue button with 'fx' written on it and a dot at the left end that I can use to grasp it and slide it left and right.

To the right of that it says 6169, which is the content of some cell.

Hover over a couple of these things and it says 'name box' and 'formula bar' at different times (sometimes I can't get it to do it.)

There's data there. I can't do it now but somehow the first time I opened it I was able to scroll one or the other column (i.e. one at a time only) up and down and see there was content there.

Is this thing fixable or should I get back to them and ask for a rerun? I would delete this is I could but it doesn't seem to offer that choice.

Did a 'print preview' and after that it came up in normal view. Well, nearly, it was down at the bottom of the screen but I was able to drag it up and now I've got it.

Convert Downloaded Web Page Numbers Seen As Text To Numbers

Jan 16, 2008

See attached file. A colleague is downloading rows of data from a website which contains a number field Excel is currently treating as Text after being pasted in. My spreadsheet includes just a sample of the many rows of data however as you can see the VALUE function refuses to convert these text values to numbers. How these might be converted and why the VALUE function refuses to work in this case?
