auto sum column containing words and numbers

I have one column of imported data that contains about 12000 rows of text and
numbers.

I would like to find out the dollar total of the numbers only, BEFORE i
start formatting the data (text to columns, etc). Because the dollar total
will be in the the millions I would like to have a reference dollar total so
that I know if I have made a mistake at anytime i.e. accidentally delete a
row.

Is it possible to find a sum first?

Any help is greatly appreciated

How to Separate words and number in 1 column?

example :

19yo or 19 years old

How to separate them?
19 and yo?

I want to total the amount of names in one column only if the cell in the adjacent column contains a specific number. Kind of like the sumif function but for words.
For example I'm looking for a formula that would tell me how many names contain the number "1" next to it.

1 -> John
1 -> Frank
1 -> Mary
2 -> Mr. Ed
3 -> Tony
1 -> Megan
3 -> Christa
3 -> Jacob

The formula should result in "4" which correlates to the amount of names that have the number 1 next to it. Please help me out. Eventually I want to utilize it in a google documents spreadsheet. Is there any reason it wouldn't work in google docs but will work in Excel? I have tried using any array formula but I'm not getting the results I'm looking for.

Maybe you guys could take a break from giving free technical school
answers to lazy partiers and try this fun problem. I dreamed part of
it last nicht.

How do I transpose an array of words and numbers into an array of
different proportions?

The proportions of the arrays can be anything, including n x 1 and 1 x
n.
The size of the array can be anything that fits on a worksheet and can
be located anywhere on the worksheet.

Ex:
Array of the present (4x5)
ab 12 de 1.55 ghe
ef 34 nu 3.65 unt
gh 56 mc 2.45 wen
kl 78 vm 1.35 rep

After a re-arrange (7x3)
ab 12 de 1.55 ghe ef 34
nu 3.65 unt gh 56 mc 2.45
wen kl 78 vm 1.35 rep

I am uncomfortable with VBA so don't use VBA.

I don't want to copy/paste because I want the second array to update
immediately when I change the values in the first array.

Also another reason I don't want to use VBA is I would necessitate to
run it after every update.

Thank you and have a good evening,

How can I get Excel to compare two columns of numbers? For example, for each
number in the first column I want to count how many in the second column
contain the same number.
Thanks

I want to autosum columns 7 through 9 of my data. The data has gaps in certain rows which eliminates standard solutions. For example, the following code will only take the very first row in the series if the column does not have data in every single row(?!).

With ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("sheet1")
FinalRow = Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row

For i = 15 To 18
Cells(FinalRow + 1, i) = Application.WorksheetFunction.Sum(Cells(1, i), Cells(FinalRow, i))
Next
End With
Because of this strange issue i decided to try working around by inserting a formula into the final row of column i instead. This throws an error object variable or with block variable not set.

To recap, I need code to auto sum columns of variable height that may also be missing data in certain rows.

Sub Macro4()
'autosumming columns
FinalRow = Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
With ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("sheet1")
For i = 7 To 9
 Cells(FinalRow + 1, i).Select
 Selection.FormulaR1C1 = "=SUM(R[1]C[i]:R[" & FinalRow & "]C[i])"

 Next
 End With


I have a column with text and numbers. The numbers are both negative and positive. I want to create a conditional statement in a SUMIF function that pulls in all numbers (negative and positive). A >0 or <0 will not work. Is there a statement that will either skip cells with text, or will add both negative and positive numbers.

Thank you for your help.

I need a formula that will sum a column that contains both text and numbers.
The text and numbers appear in this column as the result of an if formula (if
value returned > 0, "-", [value]). Can I sum a column containing mixed
information?

I need to know how to auto sum column B based on the account number in column A for multiple accounts. I.E. if you enter the account number in to the A column and the dollar amount into the B column. Then have it auto sum based on account number onto sheet 2 under the corresponding account number. The purpose is to be able to enter all purchases for all account on sheet one and have it sort and total each account on sheet 2 so that i know the balances.

Hi to all, I have a coloums that contain both text and numbers, so for instance coloumn A will contain only numbers with blanks, and B with words. I want to remove all the blanks and the code I'm using is shown below

Dim intCol As Integer

For intCol = 44 to 59
Range(Cells(, intCol), Cells(487, intCol)).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeBlanks).Delete Shift:=xlUp
Next intCol

End Sub

The only problem is that the blanks in the coloumns of the text are removed but the ones containing the coloumns of numbers remain unchanged.

Thanks to all

I have many problems.

First, let me tell you how the spreadsheet is set up.

Column A is Empty
Column B has Item Numbers in it
Column C has Description
Column D has Pack/Size
Column E has Barcode
Column F has Weekly Average Bought
Column G has Base Amount

Columns F&G are carried out to 2 decimal places

I need something that says the following;

If F+G=0 then change to “Z” if not then leave F & G as is

Then I need,
If F

A column contains both strictly numbers and also numbers that are followed
by text (e.g., row 1: 1000, row 2: 1500; row 3: 1000a; row 4: 1500a)
Identical numbers are related documents, with the text suffixes referring to
addenda documents; thus, document 1000 has an addendum document 1000a; How
can I sort the column so in the following order: row 1 (1000), row 3 (1000a),
row 2 (1500), row 4 (1500a)?
Thank you

As I'm not quite sure what I'm asking, I've been unsuccessful finding a pre-existing thread for my question. As such, if I've committed a "faux pas" please accept my apology.

My challenge is that I have a spreadsheet with six columns. Columns A, B and C will be populated with either 0 or a number greater than 0. What I am trying to do, with no success is, if the number in columns A, B or C = 0, have the adjacent cells in columns in D, E and F auto-populate with "Not Applicable" and if the number is greater than zero, have the adjacent cells in columns D and E auto-populate with "Please Complete" and column F auto-populate with "Outstanding". I am self-taught with respect to macros and as such, my knowledge is sketchy at best.

Any suggestions or even re-direction would be much appreciated.

Thanks -
Cindy

I'm new in forum and I have a problem with SUM calculation.

I have a 12 column (12 month) with numbers. In one field I write one number for example 5.

If I write number 5 I want to SUM first 5 column (from A to E).

Imran,

Hi all,

Is there a way to count the total number of rows with data (excluding title row at top and Auto-Sum row at bottom) and put the result in L2?

Thanks much

Hi!

I have a problem, I recieved a huge list of numbers on my email, and my boss said I have to put them in Microsoft Excel and find out which ones are missing. (list shown here:bit.ly/jflBZ8) File is attached below.

String contains one word and three numbers e.g. A582, U821,...

Anyone knows a function for this?

Thank you!
Best,

How would you write VBA code that would search a cell (containing words and numbers) for a particular word, pull that word out of the cell and place it into the next column over?

Example:

Cell contains the string "Happy New Year 2008 Be safe and have fun 03010"

How would I pull out the word "Year" and put it into the next column and leave everything else in the cell?

Thanks!

I am trying to put together an attendance tracker that sums cells by
the type of time off time off taken. Unfortunately since the cells
contain both text and numbers I haven't figured out how to set up the
formula - can anyone help?

For example - I took 8hrs of vacation on 1/1/06, 2 hours of vacation on
1/2/06, 3 hours of sick time on 1/3/06 and 4 hours of sick time on
1/4/06. I am using "V" to signify vacation & "S" to signify sick time
so the cells would be 8V, 2V, 3S & 4S. My excel sheet would show the
dates 1/1/06 to 1/4/06 in cells A1 to D1. My time off would show in
cells A2 to D2. Then I tried to use cell E2 to sum up the vacation time
& F2 to sum up the sick time. Basically I want it to tell me that I
have used 10 hours of vacation & 7 hours of sick time.

I tried to put an example below...

A B C D E F
1 1/1 1/2 1/3 1/4
2 8V 2V 3S 4S

Any help that someone could offer would be greatly appreciated!

Hello every one,

How can i merge all the columns from Column D to Column Y in Column Z. The seperator between the Columncontents should be numbers in format "<<1>>" for column D, "<<2>>" for column E,"<<2>>" for column F........

i have a wordlist(arabic from right to left lanuage) containing words and meanings. Column A contains Words, Colulmn B contains Transcription, Column C contains Grammer information and the following Columns up to Column Y contain of Meanings.
!!!The meanings start with Column D which is then followed by E,F,G... Y. If any column cell is empty then it would mean, that the following cells of corresponding columns are also empty. For example if Colulmn D has content but Column E not, then it means that F,G,H...Y are also empty !!

Thanks for each assistance in Advance

Hello,

Is there a way to auto fill a column with numeric and alpha...

I've got a column of letters and numbers that I want to count. For
example the column could look like this:

a,1
1
1
b,1
b
a

What I want to do is count all the times that 1 shows up. When I try
to use formula =COUNTIF(I508:I512,"=*1*") It doesn't count the
instances where 1 is all by itself. It only counts 1 when it is with
another letter.

What I've resorted to is a forumula that looks like this.

=SUM(COUNTIF(G2:G431,"=1"),COUNTIF(G2:G431,"*1"),C OUNTIF(G2:G431,"=1*"))

Basically it has all the possible options and then adds them together.
But why doesn't the wildcard feature work?

thanks, mike
