Custom Formatting - Show Numbers On Excel Spreadsheet In Thousands
Jun 14, 2013
I want to show numbers on my excel spreadhseet in thousands. However, the challenge is I want to show negtive numbers in red within brackets. For instance, I have a number -104,784,089. I want to display it as (104,784) in red color. Similarly, I want to show 577,090 as 577. Is there a customer formatting I can set up in excel that do that?
I have a giant sheet that culminates in a graph. It is for various regions. When used in a country with in-control currency, you end up with a nice healthy number that looks good on the graph. When our Zimbabwe office uses it with their crazy inflation and high prices, we get a crazy number that goes into scientific notation...
Anyway, my question:
Given a number like 4,200,000 or 6,500 or 345,123, I want to be able to show as few trailing numbers as possible, and give a nice K or B or D or however you abbreviate Quadrillion (kM? for Zimbabwe) after it.
And, if possible, I'd like to do it with number formats, but I am flexible so long as it doesn't use VBA.
The lookup table would be:
Sheet1 AB1<1,000As is21,000K31,000,000Mil.41,000,000,000Bil.5>1,000,000,000,000Tril. Excel tables to the web >> Excel Jeanie HTML 4
All numbers have 2 significant digits, and I want to keep 2, so if it ends up as 4,200,000, I want the answer to read 4.2 Mil, etc.
I tried doing this with a lookup, and couldn't handle it.
I am trying to write a custom cell format that would allow me to replace the comma with a space after the thousand's place. Therefore, 1 million would look like: 1 000 000 instead of 1,000,000. I do NOT want to change my regional settings to accomplish this.
When I write ### ### ### it accomplishes this, however, there is one small glitch. When you apply an "underline" you get the following result:
We have a list of numbers in a spreadsheet (telephone numbers). The numbers have been put in with () around the country code and hypens separating the rest of the numbers - for example (44) 0111-123456
Is it possible to remove the formatting to just read as a full number e.g 0111123456? I have loads to do and the thought of doing it manually is painful!
The formatting is set to general, which works for all but the top type of account number. I tried setting to a custom format like "#.#######" ...The only problem with that format is that the "." shows up whether there is a decimal in the number or not. What's the way around that?
Any way to import and use icon sets for conditional formatting other than the ones provided in excel 2007? I would like to have some circles and shapes in colors other than just yellow, green, red, and gray.
I am trying to do a query against my database using MsQuery, but I am having a problem with it...
One of the tables in my database stores information as Binary (Bits) instead of actual text.... When I create the Query in MsQuery, the text is displayed as desired...but when I send it to Excel that column is not displayed..
Does anyone have any ideas on how I can get it to send the column to Excel?
See attached for what I mean. The Bits column shows in MSQuery, but not in Excel.
I have a worksheet that has a number in cell K5 - the number is generated on "file open" code and is custom formatted as "TN"0000. Thus 1 appears as TN0001, 2 as TN0002 and so on. I am trying to save a copy of the workbook based on the this cells contents i.e. TN0001.xls, TN0002.xls etc. but the files are saved as 1.xls or 2.xls. The code I am using is
these numbers wont be the same every time, but in theory after i enter 12 rows there should be only 5/6 numbers left max.
i need a script so that when i copy/paste 12 rows, i can be presented with the numbers not in that field. or even if i have a field of 1-80 displayed, then i copy paste my numbers in the fields below and can somehow highlight which numbers between 1-80 aren't in my pasted fields on the 1-80 field.
btw the numbers missing here are 24-68
ps im using excel starter 10 if that makes a difference
Open a brand new spreadsheet whether the format is set to "General" or "Text" it will not let me enter numbers. For example, when I enter 2007 in the cell it displays 20 07 not really that big of space between the two zeros - but still a space. I can't format this no matter what I do.
Question 1: how i can automatically add a cell into a formula by just clicking the cell to be added? in other words, say i typed an "=" sign in a cell and want to add a number of cells just by clicking the mouse without having to type the "+" sign after selecting each cell. the formula will just appear as > =A1+B1+C1 by default with each click of the mouse. Is there a default setting that can be set so the plus sign will appear with each click?
Question 2: how can i set a comma to appear for all thousands, (i.e. 1,000) without having to format each cell individually to show commas?? in other words that any spreadsheet i open will always insert comas for numbers larger by a thousand?
I have 2 sheets in my excel spreadsheet. One tracks data for a number of projects five different employees are working on. The other sheet is where I want to total up the number of minutes each employee has worked on their individual projects. I tried writing an IF statement like below but I am only getting the total in the first field even if the employee's name is not Employee 1....
How I can write this so their totals show up in the correct row?
Excel 2007 Conditional Formatting. I am trying to apply conditional formatting to a wide range of cells. I only want the rule to adjust the color and shading, under the FONT tab in the section below. Specifically, I do NOT want to adjust the number format (I have the user select the scaling and use VB to populate the number formatting). I accomplish this by removing the number formatting by going into the conditional formatting rule, clicking on format, and then on the first tab (Number) -- on the bottom right there is button to Clear.
This resolves the issue perfectly, and I can operate the report exactly as I would expect.
Unfortunately, when closing the report (after a save), and then re-opening, the conditional formatting number format is no longer cleared. Worse yet, because it no longer is cleared, the scaling VB doesn't work, unless I go back into conditional formatting rules, and go to the number tab, and click clear.
Recently I found this forum through a Google search along with the perfect solution to a problem I was having finding and replacing text based on a table of replacement values. Here is the thread:
Multiple substitute or replace text using a table
I incorporated the SuperSub function that steveorg developed as a result of that thread into my worksheet by creating a new module and pasting the following code into it:
Function SuperSub(OriginalText As String, rngOldText As Range) Dim cel As Range Dim strOldText As String, strNewText As String ' loop through list of old_text used in substitute For Each cel In rngOldText.Cells strOldText = cel.Value strNewText = cel.Offset(0, 1).Value OriginalText = Application.WorksheetFunction.Substitute(OriginalText, strOldText, strNewText) Next cel SuperSub = OriginalText End Function
It works like a charm as a formula, but I also have a macro in the same workbook that, as soon as it selects the sheet with the formula, calls the SuperSub function and starts executing the code as a macro (even though there is no call to this routine in the macro). The macro ran just fine before incorporating the function into my worksheet.
The formula looks like this: =TRIM((supersub( UPPER(E2),rngSubst))) If cell E2 contains the string "101 North Main Street, Apartment 5", it would return "101 N MAIN ST APT 5"
Here is the macro:
Sub Import() ' Sheets("Shoebuy FTP").Select Range("A2:R200").ClearContents 'This is where it jumps to Function SuperSub(OriginalText As String, rngOldText As Range)
The function runs for every occurrence of the formula in the worksheet, and when it is finished, all of the cells containing that formula show a value of "#VALUE!". I should mention that it does not change the formula at all, but I then have to highlight each cell that contains the formula, press <F2> to edit, then <ENTER> to get it to display the correct results again.
It is probably some stupid little thing that I didn't do when I created the function, but I can't figure it out. I have written numerous macros, but this is the first time I have ever created a custom function.
I am trying to set a custom view when exiting, but I keep getting runtime error 424 saying an object is required. I am attempting to unprotect the sheets, check the value of an option button, set the custom view based on that value, and then protect the sheets. Please keep in mind that the user may or may not be on the sheet containing the option button when exiting. Here is the code I am having trouble with.
Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
Call UnprotectSheets 'Unlock to set option button value
With Worksheets("Customer_Info") If btnExistCust.Value = True Then ActiveWorkbook.CustomViews("Sales_Exist").Show Else ActiveWorkbook.CustomViews("Sales_New").Show End If End With
I have a userform with a combobox (cmbSearch) , a textbox (textbox1) and a listbox (listbox1)....and a commandbutton (cmbFind). This userform is used for searching records in my worksheet....where user selects a "Search By" category from the combobox and then enters relevent text search criteria in the textbox....and all the search results are shown in the listbox. This part works fine untill someone tries to search a "non-existent" record. e.g. a customer name thats not in the database and it gives an error. I would incorporate in my code to have a Message box pop up on these type of searches saying "textbox1.value Not Found!" insetad of error message.
Private Sub cmbFind_Click() Set c = Range("a65536").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0) 'write userform entries to database Dim DataSH As Worksheet Set DataSH = Sheets("ComplaintData")
With DataSH .Range("L1").Value = cmbSearch.Value .Range("L2").Value = TextBox1.Text .Range("N1"). CurrentRegion.Clear .Range("A1").CurrentRegion. AdvancedFilter Action:=xlFilterCopy, criteriarange:=.Range("L1:L2"), copytorange:=.Range("N1") End With lstSearch.RowSource = vbNullString lstSearch.RowSource = "outdata"
I took an Excel course in college but am a bit rusty. I have a customer database that I created and I would like to see certain things after entering a date range that I specify. I uploaded a small excel sheet to show my database and what I'm looking to do. Basically I would like to enter a date range and see these answers:
Total Orders in that date range Total unique orders in that date range List of customers (name included) who ordered more than once in that date range
The only columns of data I need to use are: firstname, lastname and orderdate.
I would like to format a row of cells. I want each cell in the row to contain (and show) both an interger and text. The interger will range in value from one to ~10,000. The text will always be two characters long...but these characters will change from cell to cell.
Elsewhere in the spreadsheet I will have a cell (w/ a formula) that counts the values of the intergers in the row, but ignores the text in each cell.
