I've been given a spreadsheet which comes out of a time tracking application. The spreadsheet list projects and resources(people), and the time expected and acutally spent. Currently a lot of manual changes are being done once this report is generated. The report is always in the same format but because of the number of resources the rows specific data appears will vary from month to month.

Example:

Row 1 = Project Name

Row 2 = Resource Name 1 (this row also contains the hours for resource1)

Row 3 = Resource Name 2 (this row also contains the hours for resource2)

Row 4 = Totals (totals up the number of resource hours for each week)

My problem is that the values reported are in a Text Format. I've created a worksheet thats grabbing the data from the original report, but when I attempt to sum the totals for each week to get the totals for the month I get 0 because the values on the main worksheet are text, also I want the user to be able to paste in the next months report without having to convert manually (hoping I can do a conversion formula on my raw data worksheet). I'm using a lot of IF formulas to pull specific data from the report, and I've pulled over my project names and the totals per week, but now due to the conversion problem I can't sum for the month.

I've used a similar formula in the past but its for an opposite situation (number to text) =TEXT(A1,"0000000000"), is there a formula that converts it to numeric form? sorry I couldn't post an example.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Special Note: I hope the Title was accurately written for this post, tried to make it descriptive enough, thanks again for your help.

This is my first post. I need to know if there is a way to automatically have "text numbers" converted to actual numbers? Data is being copied from reports into the sheet i am using by a number of different people and most of the time it is text numbers being pasted. The range for the data being entered is C3:D102. Is it possible to enter a code that would convert these to actual numbers as soon as they are pasted?

From 1440 to 1.440

From 6729 to 6.729

From 12185231 to 12,185.231

Thanks.

I am back to doing my Excel projects, and just found out that I need to convert some text to a number. I was wondering if there is a way to do it in Excel. Like, for example, the date 3/14/2006 can be converted to 38790. Is there any function in Excel that can convert a word to a number?

Example would be (numbers are totally random)

md_bla_bla_02 would convert to something like 3452615261502

I hope someone can help me. Thank you in advance!

(One thousand two hundred thirty four INR in English text)

i getting in Baht in Thai Text but i need in English. How do i get it?

i am also using [=spellnumber(b14)] function but this function working only

one time for using.

on how can i match the values written in text with actual numbers

for e.g

i need to match the Result

A B =IF((VALUE(A1))=B18799,"T","F")

1) NULL F

2) 0.582753183 0.582753183 F

3) NULL F

4) 1 1 T

5) 2.35 2.35 T

6) -0.293523862 -0.293523862 F

As per the above mentioned e.g which is exact my prob

Col1(A) is having the values in TEXT and Col2(B) is retrieving values with Vlookup

i am not worry about the 1 and 3. But for the values in row 2,4,5 and 6 have same values in it, why is the result says F for ROW 2 and 6 as the same formula[=IF((VALUE(A1))=B18799,"T","F"))] is used under "Result"

Please let me know what else do i need to include in "IF" formula, i need to edit only IF formula. Appreciate if i do not add any new column.

Really in need ...

Thanks

The information is copied from another data file and gets pasted as a text

file of 4 digits. IE: 'XXXX

I tried the formula of =VALUE(LEFT(D2,2))&":"&(VALUE(RIGHT(D2,2)))

to get a time format but it is loosing #s when converting 0.

IE 0503 converted is 5:3

it misses the 2nd 0 Any suggestions to keep both 0 so it will come out

05:03???

any and all help would be appreciated.. Thanks

I use Format -> cells - > number cat. - it does not work

Any other suggestions?

Thanks

I am creating a review sheet/skill matrix using excel and need to be able to convert a particular selection to a number in the adjacent cell to work out the users efficiency (long story that i wont bore you with)

So basically i have a question/statement in cell A and a drop down answer menu in cell B containing up to 5 possible answers (very poor, poor, ok, good, very good). In cell C i would like to insert a formula that allocates a number dependant on the selection in cell B. So if the user selects very poor in cell B cell C states 1, if cell B has poor selected then cell C states 2 etc etc

Anyone have any ideas if this can be done and how i do it.

Thanks

I want to change that number to (Text Box 1). In fact I would like to

sequence the Text Box numbers form 1 to 160. Can you help?

I am trying to have excel find the highest x number in a group of

numbers and sum them up.

Example:

Week 3

156

222

172

185

158

178

166

185

133

I need the Top 3 numbers summed up. (222,185,185) = 592

Changes Weekly:

Week 4

156

222

172

185

158

178

166

185

133

195

178

222

I need the top 4 numbers summed up. (222,222,195,185) = 824

This will go on for 44 weeks.

I need excel to pick the highest 3 numbers and sum them up. I cannot

use the large function because it will pick only 1 number and I need

the x number cannot change on it's own. I need it to pick 222,185,185

and sum them up I have a database with over 150+ columns which I will

have to sort using a macro and then apply the following formula. This

range will increase weekly and for every 3 numbers added, I will need

to pick 1 more of the highest numbers and sum them up. I thought I had

it by finding the x largest number example 4th(using x large formula)

highest number (185) and making a formula with

=SUM(OFFSET(C9,MATCH(C143,C9:C140,0),0,COUNTIF(C9: C140,">"&C143)))

though, I found that if there is more than one number of the same

number, it will error. if i change the > to >=, it will pick too many

numbers. (C143 has the formula to find the x highest number(determined

in another cell).

I hope you understand what I am trying to do. It is very complicated

to me and I am now officially frustrated. Over 10 hours on this

(writing macros for sorting, etc.) Please help if you can. Thank You!
