Converting text to numerals in excel

Q: Converting text to numerals in excel

Hi, This is silly but...

I have created a template on excel for printing my company cheques and what I wanted to know was:

Can I create a formula or macro so that when I write a number in text (such as 'one' or 'two' or 'three', etc) in the cell representing the word part of my cheque, can I get that number (as '1' or '2' or '3', etc) to appear in another cell representing the numerical part of my cheque.

This is a lazy man's burden but I thought it would also suffice as a check that the right amount was going on both parts.

Sorry for the bother but ...

I'm trying to convert numbers to text in Excel for e.g. convert "1" to "one", "2" to "two" etc.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
 

A:converting numbers to text in Excel

Fatmah,
I could not find a Worksheet function to do this, but depending how many changes there are and how many different numbers need to be changed, you may be able to do this with a VLOOKUP.

In a test I ran I had numbers with values from 1-12. I created a 2 column range elsewhere on the spreadsheet. The 1st column had the 1.2.3 numbers and the 2nd column had their text equivelent. I inserted a new column to the right of where the original numbers were and entered the following to the right of the first value I wanted to change. The vlookup looked like this =VLOOKUP(A4,$F$4:$G$15,2,FALSE) Note: A4 was the cell that had the value I wanted changed. $F$4:$G$15 is the range of the lookup array. 2 is the column with the text value.

Needless to say, this would not be a good idea if every cell had a different number or there were thousands of possible numbers to be converted, but if you had thousands ofmnumbers in a limited range, this might be helpful.

Hi all,

I'm having a bit of a problem in Excell. Whenever I save an excel file as text, it places quotation marks arrond any cell which contains a comma.

Has anyone ever encountered this or know how to resolve it?

Thanks

I need to convert an excel file to a quoted comma-delimited format as a text file. When I use the formula:
=concatenate("""",A1,"""",",","""",B1,"""",",","""",C1,"""",), I get an error message "error 528'. I was told in a previous forum to use this formula in the first cell next to the numbers to be converted.
I have 1000 rows of 3 colums of numbers that have to read as follows:
"1","400100000311","52"
I can get it to a text format without quotes, but need the quotes as above.
I'm running windows 7, and open office.
Thanks for any help you can give me.

I am trying to combine 2 spreadsheets. One acct number col. is formatted as text, one is formatted as numbers. When I convert the text format to number or vice versa, and I try to sort the entire thing as one column, it will not sort them together. Some part of the old formatting is causing a problem. Any suggestions on how to fix?
 

A:Excel: converting number to text format

Excel could just still be seeing some of your numbers as text. Here's how to fix it.

Put a 1 in any blank cell--that's a number one.

Copy that cell.

Select all of your account numbers. Hit Edit-Paste Special and select either multiply or divide. If Excel is seeing some of these numbers as text, this trick will force it to see them as numbers.

I am trying to extract a date from a data cell within an Excel 2003 workbook.

The cell contains the data, "October 10, 2011 11:11:11 PM GMT-04:00" but I want only the date information and for it to convert to MM/DD/YYYY format. Basically, taking that cell and turning it into 10/10/2011.

I have about 500 entries with similar data and I am looking for the easiest way to extract the dates from the text. Mind you, the length of the Months (i.e., January vs. September), Date (i.e., 1 vs 11), and even time vary (1:00 vs 11:11).

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Found the answer I was looking for:

Assuming the first cell is A1,

=TEXT(LEFT(A1,FIND(",",A1)+5), "mm/dd/yyy")

Copy down, then copy the column and paste values.

You can also use

=DATEVALUE(LEFT(A1,FIND(",", A1)+5))

then format the cell as mm/dd/yyy, then copy down.

A:Solved: Excel: Extract text from the middle of a text string - Difficult

"multiple dashes": agreed, but in your sample all items have the same number of multiple dashes -- 3.

If that's a given, just use Data > Text to Columns with "-" as delimiter. Then delete fields 1, 2 & 4 from the results since it seems that "section" 3 is always the bold stuff.

HTH, if not post back.

A:Converting from Jpeg to text?

Your best bet would be to rescan it as a document, not as a graphic file. Especially so if anyone intends to print it or use it in anything other than digital file format.

Or...you could exist it as a graphic file within the body of a short Word document...and then send it as a Word doc.

Actually...I think I'd just send it as an email attachment, retaining the graphic file format. I would adjust the size of the graphic so that it would not be extraordinarily large by email standards.

My first suggestion is the best .

You might want to read this:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/excel/HP051992911033.aspx
- in general, 1024 characters is the maximum allowable in a cell, but, as you have noticed, at 255 characters they are no longer displayed in the cell normally, but you can enter 32,767 characters in total, but after 255 characters they can only be read in the formula bar.
Also, if your cell only contains numeric data, then changing the format to General will leave you with information using scientific notation.
Alas, spreadsheets are spreadsheets and not word processors.

How do you select it so you only convert some tabs to pdf?

Hi,

I'm trying to convert an excel spreadsheet to a PDF file. While it can do so, I have a graph in the excel document, along with an arrow pointing to a value on the Y Axis. When I convert the spreadsheet, however, the arrow gets moved up half an inch or so, which makes the graph and arrow inaccurate.

Please help!

Thanks,

Help!

I created a table using Excel, and from that table I created a line chart using the Chart Wizard.

After the chart was complete, I then added data using the drawing tools "add text icon."

When I want to included the data table when printing, the text that I added prints fine.

Now here is where the problem occurs. if I just select the chart, the text disappears, and if I do a print preview or print, the text doesn't show up. The text that I added is behind the chart in a cell. I tried to bring it forward but that doesn't work.

What am I doing wrong?

If I create the table in Power Point, and then add the text, everything prints fine. I don't understand why it works in Power Point and not in Excel.

Thank you for your help.
 

A:Excel-Printing Text that was added to a Chart using the Drawing Tools "Text Icon"

When you select a chart in Excel, that becomes the print range. I think you'll be better off copying the chart to it's own worksheet and resizing to desired size...and of course, carry the text box(es) along with it.

Hi there bright people,

I am having trouble converting a LOC file type into EXCEL.

I have tried every type of special copy and paste and tried different formatting, but everytime i get the same result. That being cells that will only show (example) 1.440000E+62, or somthing similar. I will then expand the cell to cope with the length of the text but still the same result

I can however open the LOC file in Notepad or wordpad and can view the document there, but I need to be able to manipulate the data in Excel to be able to run a Macro over it.

Any help from an Excel Guru would be great.

Does anyone know if there is a downloadable converter that will take a WORD document (extension .wps) on a computer running win 98 and convert it into an excel or word document on a computer running xp and office xp (extension .xls)
i have just changed jobs to a company i used to work for and due to the economic climate have not updated their computer system, and i was hoping that there was a program that i can add to my computer to allow me to read .wps and .wks documents generated by an earlier version of word, mainly to convert and store them onto a cd.

is there anything i need to look for on the free download sites?

A:Help converting sls.rtf files to excel

smgisland, Santa Clause has come early. You can import rtf files in to Excel.
Whether you can make sense of the data afterwards is another thing though, it may take some data manipulation.
To import a file go to Main Menu>Data>Import External Data>Import Data
to browse to your file change the File Types to either "all files" or "text fies".

I have an Excel file which I have to convert into ASCII.

In the converted file, each record should consist of 296 characters, for e.g.,

Positions 1 - 30: Surname
Positions 31-50: First name
Positions 51: Initial
Positions 52 - 75: Address Line 1
etc.

My problem is that if the surname is less than 30 characters, it has to be padded with spaces and if it's a numeric field it has to be padded with zeros.

As I mentioned, I have an excel file. Is there any way I can format the excel file to automatically put in spaces or add zeros whichever the case may be and then I can just save the file in ASCII format? Is there any other program I could use to accomplish this task?

Any help would be much appreciated.

A:Hlookup in Excel converting to Access

You use one or more Queries to do what you want. If you can explain in words what the lookup does I can advise you how to do it in a query.
From what you have already written it suggests that the Individuals "rates" would be in a separate table, in which case the query only needs to link the 2 tables to provide the data.
If the rates are in the same table a query will provide them anyway.
You can attach a copy of a Screen shot of the Table by pasting it in to Excel or word and the zipping it and attaching it to your post and then using the "Go Advanced" & "Manage Attachments" Buttons below where you type.

I can provide you with examples if required.

First, sorry if this question has already been answered. I did a search but didn't find what I was looking for (or maybe I didn't understand). Anyway, in an Excel 2003 workbook I have a column of filenames (.jpg) that I want to convert into hyperlinks. Obviously, I don't want to do this one at a time. It's important to say that I'm not very familiar with macros and not at all familiar with VB.

To make matters more difficult, once completed I need to move both the images and the workbook to a DVD - preferably with the hyperlinks functioning. I later need to move it to another PC.

But, first things first, how can I convert that column of filenames into a column of hyperlinks? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Problem converting Excel macro to .vbs script

Hello Lisa,

welcome to TSG Forums

You don't have to activate the workbook before referencing sheets. But you do must activate it before selecting sheets, because you can only select some part of the active workbook, active worksheet, etc. Also, in most cases you must use the workbook qualifier (objWb, in your case), which is a good practive anyway. Try this code:

Code:
objWb.Activate
objWb.Worksheets(strDestSheet).Select

Changing a cell should work without activation:

Code:
objWb.Worksheets(strDestSheet).Range("A1") = 1
This latter should work even with Excel being invisible.

Hi there I was pointed in the direction of this site in the hope that I may get some help with a small problem. I have put together a fairly basic website that records scores for an online gaming event that I am hosting. The points given out go towards 2 sets of scores (an individual score and a team score) all of this is working perfectly. However what I could now do with doing is converting these 2 sets of scores into 2 league tables enabling us to update the website easily.

I am told the thing I need is something called a pivot table, but I have no idea how to set one up. Is there anyone who can help out here please.

Thanks

Kev.

I use Microsoft Excel 2007. I have a block of information that is 13 rows long (with numerous blocks of information) and would like to convert each individual block of 13 rows to 13 columns (with each row being one of the blocks of information.) Cutting and pasting would take forever and I'm sure there's a faster way to do it. Help!

Ive spent so much time on this, I want to pull my hair out.

I have a pdf file of addresses. I converted the pdf to an excel file (the one I uploaded).

My eventual goal is to convert the addresses into excel, then do a mail merge into word.

I found a tool (via this great site) called ASAP utilities that I can turn the rows into columns, thats easy.

But the problem is, the addresses aren't always the same length. Some labels are 4 rows, others are 6 rows.

Is there any way I can either automatically make the rows 6 each without doing it manually? Or does anyone have any type of suggestion?

Thanks so much for the help
 

A:Converting excel rows (addresses) to columns for mail merge

Firstly, can I assume that you have permission to use those addresses for your own mailing?

If so you could go back to the originator and ask them to give you a CSV file, or maybe see if the pdf file can be saved as a CSV file.

If so, it would be very easy to bring that into Excel and then convert the file from text to Columns, using the Data, Text to Columns feature.

A:Solved: Excel: Overflow error when converting decimal to date

I found the problem.

The following expression was too long:
TimerEnd = Now() + ((1500 - (3 * WorldPop / 8)) / (60 * 60 * 24))

I simplified it to:
TimerEnd = Now() + ((1500 - (3 * WorldPop / 8)) / 86400)

and it resolved my problem.

Hi,

I have to export a large database (6000 records) from access to excel. I can do it and most of the records are OK but for some there is an automatic response "The text string you entered is too long. Reduce the # of characters used or cancel the entry."

Can I change how excel behaves by doing some settings change before exporting from access to excel?

Hi Frank,

For BLOBs (Binary large objects and MEMO fields) set the cell's format to General in Excel, if it's set to Text then you run into the text length limit which is something like 255 characters

A:Help with colouring text in Excel

You can't format part of the result of a formula directly in Excel versions up to 2000, & I very much doubt you can do it in subsequent versions.

You could work around it with VBA code, but it would be pretty messy. Example:

Say you have values in A1:A3 and you want A4 to display "Average: x", where x is the average of A1:A3. But you want "Average:" to be bold and red if x < 6.

1. Use the formula =AVERAGE(A1:A3) in A5. Hide row 5.

2. Paste this code into the VBA module for the worksheet (accessed by rightclicking the sheet tab & selecting "View Code" from the pop-up menu).

Private Sub Worksheet_Calculate()
On Error GoTo 100
Range("A4") = "Average: " & Format(Range("A5").Value, "0.00")
If Range("A5") < 6 Then
Range("A4").Characters(Start:=1, Length:=8).Font.FontStyle = "Bold"
Range("A4").Characters(Start:=1, Length:=8).Font.ColorIndex = 3
Else
Range("A4").Font.FontStyle = "Normal"
Range("A4").Font.ColorIndex = 1
End If
100:
Exit Sub
End Sub

3. Enter 3 in A1. A1:A3 average = 3, A4 displays "Average: 3.00".

4. Enter 6 in A2. A1:A3 average = 4.5, A4 displays "Average: 4.50".

5. Enter 9 in A3. A1:A3 average = 6, A4 displays "Average: 6.00". (no bold or red).

The attached workbook contains this example. HTH.

A:Tab-delimited text in Excel???

The contents of that file do not suggest its anything to do with your budget spreadsheet anymore.

I would suggest that the file has become corrupted and cross-linked with a temporary internet explorer file or similar.

Look at the URL's littering the file (http://www.....), should they be in your file at all?

This being the case, your file may be unrecoverable.
As you have been using it for so long, you will have made backups right??
Storage on the Hard Disk only should be considered temporary, I have lost 3 HDD in 3 years. Backup to CD for maximum reliability.

Driving me crazy. I copied a list of domains from my server control panel with domain names, disk space usage, and bandwidth usage. I want to graph the usage.

Excell insists that the numeric data are text. Usage figures of, say, 109 or 8.42 are text and can't be graphed. So, I need to change them to Number format.

Original cells are not locked, worksheet is not protected, cell format is changed to Number. It's still text.

Copy and paste to a cell where, if I type 109, it's number; paste from the original 109, it's text. Paste special=>Values or Values and number formats - it's text

I can't make them change to Number!! Any ideas?

I have saved an Excel 'Fixtures Grid' for a pool league as a .htm web page, with the team names horizontal down the left for home games- and the teams' names vertically across the top for away games.

When I view the page in Excel for editing everything is fine.
When I view it as a web page , however, the vertical text flips to horizontal and won't fit in the slot.

Any ideas gurus?

It is also possible the cell may contain multiple URL lines like that, and I would like for each extra URL for it to be put in a new cell.
