Mar 7, 2012

Is there Code for forcing all text in a certain range to Uppercase?

Example: A1:E20

Add Space To Each Uppercase Letter In Text

Jan 11, 2008

I import a CSV file into Excel where the column title row has column titles that are just one long text string, without any spacing between the words. For example:

I would like a method (formula or macro) that would add a space-character before each uppercase letter (that's not the first letter in the string or an uppercase letter that directly follows another upper case letter). Thus:
CompanySiteDescription becomes Company Site Description
CompanySiteExternalSystemID becomes Company Site External System ID
IssueNumber becomes Issue Number

Forcing Decimal Places (wanting NUMBERS Not TEXT)

Jun 4, 2008

I am wondering if there is any way to "force" a number to have three decimal places instead of two and still have that number valued as a number for use in formulas later (like AVERAGE, etc.).

What I have is a combination of HLOOKUPs, IF statements, and Conditional Formatting.

I have a Master Grades sheet and individual Class sheets. I use an HLOOKUP, matching a Student Number in both sheets, and looking in the Class sheet for the P/F indicator. If the indicator is a F, the HLOOKUP is to return the Final Grade from the Class sheet and input that into the Master Grades sheet, forced to three decimal places (whereas the numbers in the Class sheets are at two decimal places) If the indicator is P, the HLOOKUP simply returns the Final Grade from the Class sheet and inputs it into the Master Grades sheet with two decimal places.

I have the failure grades forced to three decimal places so that the Conditional Formatting in the Master Grades sheet highlights the failed grades for teachers and anyone else can see right away that a student failed, but the number still allows the Master Grades sheet to calculate the overall AVERAGE for the student as well as the AVERAGE for that class.

If any of this is not quite clear, please ask and I can further expand on what I am doing.

Here is the code I have right now that is not working correctly (and I know why it's not): ....

Force Text To Uppercase In Active Cells

Jan 28, 2009

To ensure correct data entry, I need to ensure that the filled cells in a column are always in Uppercase for example, irrespective of whether they are typed in upper or lower case.

I have found the following code, which seems to work quite well, even though I have the impression that it slowed my workbook down slightly.

Forcing Cells To ALWAYS Find MIN And MAXIMUM Values From A Specific Range Of Cells

Feb 1, 2010

I'm working on a project for my company. We make plastic tanks and for quality control we want to start recording the thickness of the tanks in different areas/zones of each tank.

Attached to this message is an Excel sheet that I've been working on. From "Sheet 1", it records inputted thicknesses into WorkSheet "1098". On the top of "1098", it shows all of the recordings, and just below that are the "10 Most Recent Entries".

Right below the "10 Most Recent Entries", there are formulas to calculate the Min and Max Values. Whenever a new entry is recorded, the selected cells for the Min and Max formulas change. Is there a way to force the cells to always stay the same?

Forcing Cell Value From Listbox

Command button opens userform with a listbox. Unfortunately during testing I found that if a value is not selected from the listbox and the OK button is clicked, it bugs out.

Is there a way to force a cell value from the listbox? BTW, the listbox first number is 3 so it would be my choice of default.

I would imagine the code would need to be with the OK button, so here is the code for it:

Forcing Time Format To Hh:mm:ss

Jul 30, 2008

I'm importing data from CMS into excel and I then have several other sheets that harvest the raw data from the import and use it to calculate various things.

My problem is that when I import time data, if it is less than 1 hour (eg 39mins, 12 secs) it will format as :39:12 rather than 00:39:12 and for some reason the calculations in other sheets omit any data that does not contain the hours field.

I have tried formatting the cells as hh:mm:ss but this does not force inclusion of the hours field.

I guess what I'm asking is:

1. Is there a way of making excel include both data in the hh:mm:ss format and :mm:ss format in the calculation?


2. Is there a way of forcing data in the :mm:ss format to include an hours field populated by zeros?

Forcing Fullscreen Works Sometimes?

Dec 6, 2013

I want to have a fullscreen application all the time, so for this I've added to things in my code:

1) Application.DisplayFullScreen = True in Workbook_Open

2) Same in WorkBook_WindowsResize

I open my workbook, it goes fullscreen. Until now all OK. However, if I press ESC or doubleclick on the topbar, it goes out of it.

Now the weird thing: if I click the "Restore window" button (which is right under the application maximize button that incidentally I have disabled) it snaps on fullscreen and THEN it keeps this state forever, even on ESC/doubleclick. Which is what I want.

So my question is: what does exiting from fullscreen and going back in change so that the workbook event starts triggering, and how I can replicate it programmatically? I've already tried WindowState = xlNormal followed by xlMaximize, it doesn't change anything.

Forcing Me To Save As On Exit.

Oct 21, 2008

recently excel 2003 began forcing the save as dialogue box when i try to close the workbook. I do not remember installing anything in particular on my machine when it started acting up.

I tried uninstalling office with Revo Uninstaller (gets rid of those pesky registry entries that the control panel add/remove leaves behind).

I reinstalled and I have the same issue.

Im thinking it is a macro of some sort as when I open the program holding down shift, it does not prompt me to save as when I exit. I do have one excel add in installed, but I have used it for many years without any issues.

Forcing Date Recognition

Aug 1, 2006

I do not write code in it, just use it for school and work on the most basic levels. I am trying to suck an Excel document into SPSS ( Statistical Package for Social Science) for my Engineering internship. I am logging temperature using Omega Engineering, Inc temperature probes. When converting the data recorded on the probe to excel, it does something funny. I will try my best to explain what it is doing. If you format the cell to general, it gives you this (38917). Then simply changing the format to date I get this (7/19). How do I change this to make it so the date is the only memory in the cell. I don't need the other number in there because when I suck it into SPSS it only sees the 38917 number and not the date. I need the date to do my statistical analysis on the data.

Forcing Tables To Match In Size

Mar 14, 2013

I am working on a project from work and am having trouble with formatting the final version that is sent to customer.

We have one tab that is named "initial" where all of the information such as Serial number, connection type, etc. is entered.

We have another tab, named "final", that is automatically populated with this information. This final tab is locked from the end user.

Once the user finishes entering data into the "initial" tab they delete the rows below that are not used. Because these rows are now deleted the "final" sheet shows "#REF!" for all of these cells.

I have attached some screen shots as examples.

I would like to be able to put some logic in the formula to make the output on the "final" tab match the initial tab. Ideally, when the user deletes the rows that are not used on the "initial" tabs this controls the amount of rows seen on the "final" tab and we don't have all of the #REF! symbols.

Forcing Horizontal Scrollbar All The Way To Left?

Jul 25, 2013

Let's say my horizontal scrollbar is 2/3 of the way to the right and I'm currently viewing columns EA thru EZ. If I turn on VBA macro recording, the Excel auto-generated VBA macro code that gets saved when I press Ctrl-Home is Range("xx").Select, where "xx" upper-left-most cell based on frozen panes [e.g. Range("T3").Select]. While recording the macro, when I press Ctrl-Home my Excel view horizontally scrolls all the way to the left such that cell T3 is selected such that I'm now viewing columns T thru AS (which is what I want). If I start with the horizontal scrollbar 2/3 of the way to the right again and I use Range("T3").Select in a VBA macro, cell T3 gets selected like before -- but Excel doesn't horizontally scroll all the way to the left to where I would be viewing columns T thru AS; it just stays with columns EA thru EZ in view. Is there some way to force the horizontal scrollbar all the way to the left with VBA code? I tried searching the FAQ and didn't find anything there. I'm using Excel 2007 on a Windows7 PC.

Forcing Round Cell To Be Constant Number?

Dec 3, 2013

the way my spreadsheet's set up so far is that each employee should have a goal of, say, 100 for how many people they need to sign up. But they each have specific geographic breakdowns in their turf, some of which might be bigger or smaller than others, but at the end should all add up to 100 for each employee.

It's not super hard to do since I just take a goal of 100, in this example, and multiply it by the percent of population of the area in their overall assignment and give them a goal for that area based on that. So if Philadelphia has 70% of their total population, Upper Darby has 20% of their total population, and Phoenixville has 10% of their total population -- the goals would come out like this:

Philadelphia, Goal: 70
Upper Darby, Goal: 20
Phoenixville, Goal: 10
Ryan, Total Goal: 100

For some of the employees, that works out perfectly -- but based on the population sizes, the rounding sometimes gets a little off and it could end up like this:

Philadelphia, Goal: 71
Upper Darby, Goal: 19
Phoenixville, Goal: 11
Ryan, Total Goal: 101

For most employees, it ends up being dead-on 100 -- but there are some whose totals are at 98 or 99 or 101, and I was wondering if there was a way to force it to shave a point off or add a point on somewhere, pending on how close the decimal was when it rounded to make sure that it always ends up exactly on 100. (I'm using 'Data >> Subtotals' to get what's being represented above as "Ryan, Total Goal.")

Forcing A User To Hard Enter Into A Cell

Apr 8, 2009

Is it possible to lock a cell so that the user must enter the number manually as opposed to using a formula.

There is a cell on one of our spreadsheets that the user should be hand entering the numbers from the general ledger this is done to ensure that the general ledger balance is the same as the spreadsheets totals. However most of the user insert a formula that just copies the number from above into this cell that should be hand entered.

Forcing Recalculation After Custom Function Update

Neither did F9 (manual recalculation). The only thing that did is hitting F2 for the cell then ENTER. But what a pain to do that for every cell it's used.
