Macro To Edit A Cell & Convert Formula To Text

Oct 13, 2006

Have a macro that copies a formula from each of 100 workbooks to a new workbook. I want to display these formulas as text and want a macro or someway to display these cells as text. I have tried to record a macro that presses the F2 key, the home key and the apostrophe. This works for the one cell but provides the following macro that does not work for anyother cell.

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = _
"'=VLOOKUP($A$30,'G:Variance Reports FY07[Salary Dist Var Repts_Cur Mth.xls]end of July'!$E$76:$G$200,3)"

Macro To Automatically Convert PrtScr Image Based Text To Real Text In Cell

Mar 22, 2014

Programming Excel VBA Macro to do OCR (text recognition) from a prt scr screen capture image and input the text into cells. Currently my Excel file has a push-button, and upon clicking on it the macro pastes into Excel the current clipboard image I have created by pressing prt scr while in another program. The macro then crops the image to the region with the applicable text. I have to then manually type the text I see in image format into the appropriate cells.

the VBA coding to automate this? I'd like it to use the clipboard image and run it through OneNote OCR, after which the applicable text values are automatically entered into the cells. Ideally the code will first crop to the region with the desired text before it does OCR. If this is not feasible, it will need to incorporate a method (keyword search?) to hone in on the desired text after the entire prt scr image has been OCRed.

Cell Formula To Convert Text To VBA Code

May 8, 2014

I am about to take on a rather large excel project for our company. The first part is coming up with how to deal with our drafting department's length inputs. In this project, our users will be entering lengths in a unique format. I have to convert that unique format to a standard Foot-Inch-Fraction format.

To try to keep the file size down and keep the complexity down, converting a cell formula to VBA so i can run this on a group of cells rather than repeating my code downward multiple rows on multiple sheets.

It is either this or come up with my own font that will convert it for me but I do not know where to start with that. How to take a stab at converting this to a VB code i can run?

A3 = 1.0108
B3 = 1'-1 1/2"

The code in B3 looks like this:

[Code] .......

An explanation of the unique format we use in our drafting department:

Basic Feet, Inch and Fraction format = 0 . 00 00 = Feet . Inch Fraction

The numbers left of the decimal point are feet. The first two numbers to the right of the decimal point are inches and the next two are sixteenths of an inch.

4’-2" = 4.0200
15’-5 1/4" = 15.0504
4’-11 3/8" = 4.1106
0’-1 15/16" = 0.0115

Copy Text To Cell And Convert To Numeric Formula

Feb 15, 2014

I have a spreadsheet where I enter text values in a cell, e.g. (.5 x .5) x 2 x .009. I want to find a way to automatically populated the cell to the right with the formula version, e.g. =(.5 * .5) * 2 * x .009 and format as three decimal place number.

One other question, is there a way to enter a template for entry in a cell. It would be nice if the text value above would take care of the parenthesis and multiplication signs for me.

Convert Cell Reference Text To Cell Formula

Aug 18, 2009

I am wanting to convert a cell reference text
to an actual cell reference

Manually I can go through each cell and click F2 + Enter and Excel automatically changes it.

I have tried recording a macro whereby I click through each cell with F2 + Enter but the VBA writes the actual formula "=$A$1" rather than the process. This does not work as the cell reference is variable.

I'm NOT wanting an external cell to convert it for me
because I am wanting to copy the answer to another independent spreadsheet

I'm NOT wanting to paste values
i.e. return the answer from cell $A$1
because I want the cell reference to remain within the cell.

Macro To Edit Text File

Dec 7, 2007

I was wondering if it was possible for a macro to edit a file by opening each .txt file, searching for the word "Reference", and then replace it with the word "Ref". Then save and close the text file.

There are no delimiters in the text files.

Macro To Edit Multiple Rows Of Text

Oct 22, 2007

I used the macro editor to create a "simple" macro to edit 7 rows of text. The steps were basic and simple - F2 key, backspace about 25 times, and down arrow then repeat these 3 steps 6 more times. The macro I got gave me the result of the very first cell as I was recording the macro. I think I remember the old Lotus 1-2-3 macro text - {edit}{backspace}{down}. Wish it were still that simple.

I have an array formula i use to sum data by specific criteria:


So that it searches for any date and replaces with the new ones, but obviously the use of quotation marks with the wildcards makes this difficult in VBA.

How to link the cell values in with the "Replace with".

Dim k As String
i = "Input_Sheet!$A$2:$A$1000>=DATEVALUE("??/??/????")"

Edit Cell Formula Using VBA

May 31, 2009

I've got this small (?) problem here. In a range of about 150 rows and 30 colums, I have to edit the cell formula, i.e. add something to the existing formula. For instance, in all the cells in column C I need to add " + D9" to the existing formula, in all the cells of column D I have to add " + E9". Is there a way to do this in VBA ? I would already happy to do it column by column, but I'm really reluctant to edit 4500 cells manually.

Allow User To Edit Cell Contents Within Macro

Feb 4, 2014

I need to query a column and find the cells that have been incorrectly coded. For example the coding standard is #<reference number>/. Sometimes people forget the "/". It is not as easy as using search and replace because the string may have more contents than the above.

For example it may show: ATM/45678/#789876 dt. 1-2-14/ or it something like CHQ/44384/#78987600.

There are many permutations. So I need to find the cells that don't have a "/" following the #<reference number>, then allow a user to enter the slash. At this stage, I don't need code to find cells containing errors, I think I can figure that out. I do need to know how to allow the user to edit the cell as part of the macro. Once the user corrects the error, the macro should then continue. Is this possible?

How To Create A Macro To Edit Cell Content

Nov 9, 2007

I'm trying to create a macro which will edit the content of a cell and update. I'm just using the "Record New Macro" option in tools.

It doesn't seem to perform the F2 edit function within the macro.

I'm sure this has been discussed previously, but I can't get the search function to work for me.

Macro For Copying Formulas & Edit In New Cell

May 17, 2009

I need to be able to copy a formula from a row that is 180 rows before the current cell.

I then need to edit the formula so that the rows all start at 6. then i need to change the column references.

The formula that I am editing looks like this after it has been copied from before:

=IF('Entry Form Portrait'!$d870="m",IF('Entry Form Portrait'!$n870="a",'Entry Form Portrait'!$a870,""),"")

So I need d870 to be changed to d6, the n870 to be changed to o6 (current column +1), the a870 to be changed to a6.

Then this resultant formula to be copied to the next column and a6 changed to b6, then copied to next column again and b6 changed to f6.

Then all 3 columns to be copied (or autofilled) down 105 rows.

I tried to do it by recording the macro, however it only works for the first time that i use it, and then just keeps repeating in the same place. I need it to use the cell i have selected as the starting point.

Here is the formula: VLOOKUP(C$13,VESSELS_DATA,ROW(30:30)-12)

What I would like to do:

1) double click to on the cell with the formula

2) goto the worksheet "DATA_TABLES" that contains the Named Range "VESSELS_DATA"

3) go down the rows until the c13 is matched

4) offset column the same as in the above formula "Row(30:30)-12"

Convert Text To Name To Use In Formula

Nov 5, 2012

I want to convert a calculated numerical value to a text value, but there are several possible conversions, each stored in a separate named range, referenced in another cell on the row. Normally I would use VLOOKUP and manually put the range name into the formula, so in this instance:

Formula D2=VLOOKUP(C2,Advanced,2)
Formula D3=VLOOKUP(C3,Intermediate,2)

But with lots of lines to do, I'd rather take advantage of the range name being present. Is there anyway of getting VLOOKUP to recognise the contents the appropriate cell as the name of a range?

Convert Text To Number With A Formula

Jun 12, 2014

I need a formula to copy a number stored as a text to the number.

I have a formula in, let's say on Sheet1, cell A1: =IF($M$3,TEXT(N7,"0%"),TEXT(N7,"0.0%"))

I then copy this cell to another sheet, let's say Sheet2, cell A1 =Sheet1!A1. I have then have a bar chart linked to this cell, but it's reading it as text and no bars are appearing in the chart - even though the cell in the second sheet is formatted as a number!

FYI - my work around is to link my chart to the underlying data in the formula above, in this case, N7. But then I'm not getting the whole number (%) or decimal (%) that I want when the value is displayed in the chart.

Convert Text To Formula In Worksheet

Jan 21, 2013

I have put together an excel sheet for how how long a part is on a particular machine. If there are multiple operations on a machine, I separated the operation times with a comma in the cell. I am now trying to get a sum of the total time the part is in a machine. I cannot just use a sum since the commas change the format from number to text. I was hoping I could do a substitution where I change the commas to plus signs and stick an equal sign in front of it and somehow get it to be recognized as a formula instead of a text string. Even then, I would still have to do a sum for the entire row. This is what I have as an example

_______Machine 1______Machine 2______Machine 3_______Machine 4_______Machine 5________Total Time
Part 1 _____20________ 10, 10, 10_________________________________________________________50
Part 2 ____15 ____________30____________________________10_______________________________55
Part 3_______________________________5, 15, 60, 10________________________5________________95

I need a column for summing the row of times (Machine Time). It doesn't need to be a one-cell solution. If I need to add a sheet to the file to do operations on the data that is fine. Again, I do not want to use VBA code. I already have a solution in VBA and am trying to do it in the worksheet only. I can get a substitution working to get a single cell into a format like 10+10+10, but that's the easy part of the battle.

Convert Cells Text To Formula

Sep 17, 2003

Is there a quick way, other than VBA, to put the contents of a cell that has the text of a formula into a second cell, but as a real formula?

What I mean is, if A1 has as text: abs(-1), I would like cell B1 to read the contents of A1 and evaluate it and put the results into B2.

Convert Array Into Text And Remove Duplicate Entries From Text In Cell?

Jun 12, 2014

I have the following two columns, and would like to obtain for each individual Company, the corresponding Country values excluding duplicates as text in a single cell.

Company 2Country B
Company 2Country C
Company 3Country C
Company 3Country C
Company 5Country A
Company 5Country C
Company 5Country C

For example:
- For Company 2, a cell containing "Country B, Country C"
- For Company 3, a cell containing "Country C"
- For Company 5, a cell containing "Country A, Country C"

I've approached generating an array using an IF statement, as in =IF(INDEX(A1:A8="Company 5",,),INDEX(B1:B8,,)," "), which returns the following array: ={" ";" ";" ";" ";" ";" ";" ";"Country A";"Country C";"Country C";" ";" ";" ";" "}.

The question is: how do I get that array to produce, as text in a cell: "Country A, Country C". Note that the duplicate Country C has been removed.

There are a few "StringConcat" User-defined functions that I've found elsewhere on the internet, but they don't seem to be able to handle to conditionally generated IF Index array, which I would think is key to parsing between Countries corresponding to each Company in the list.

Convert Data From Formula To Text Then Jump To Next Row?

Jan 15, 2014

I have a workbook with two sheets: Sheet 2 (CustomerVehicleInfo) contains a client database. Sheet 1 is kind of a virtual work order where the mechanic enters the name of a client (in A1) and all his info pops up in cells B4-F4, according to Sheet 2.

I used a simple VLOOKUP for that:

Same formula for cells C4-F4.

Problem is that the client data needs to convert from a formula to static text and next time the mechanic enters a new name in A1 it needs to jump to the next row, starting at B5.

Convert Text To Number In Lookup Formula

The problem is, even though the rest of sheet works fine one column is being read as text. I've tried many things to get Excel to read the column as numbers but nothing is working. So far I've tried everything I've found in Ozgrid (Paste special using add and multiply, using a working column)and the simple formatting things built into Excel, but nothing is working. All I need is for the column to be read as a number.

A Macro To Convert All Such Text To Numbers?

Feb 26, 2014

I am extracting a large set of numbers forming various tables from SAP. These numbers are not recognized as numbers and have Formula error. Only way to further process them is to convert them to number using 'Error Checking' option from 'Formula' Tab.

I need a macro to convert all such text to numbers, note there are no other formula errors.

I have other macro to delete rows, columns, take sum and create new Summary Table from the data but that does not work until I manually convert text to numbers.

how to have the macro globally i.e, I need to only open the extracted data in excel and be able to run the Macros. Presently I open the extracted data and also open the master macro-enabled file to access the macro.
