NAICS Code - Hirerachy Cell Format


I have a list of NAICS codes formatted as numbers that I would like to
format as hierarchical text.

Current List

Desired List

Does anyone know how to change the cell format so that the "Current
List" becomes the "Desired List"?

Thank you in advance for your help.

It looks like you could preformat that column as text and enter your values as
text.  Then you could sort the data as text.

Some versions of excel will ask if you want to sort values that look like
numbers as numbers.  You should say no to that prompt.

And just changing the format of the cells won't change the existing values to

One way to change them to text is to insert a helper column and use a formula

And drag down.

Then you could edit|copy this column and edit|paste special|values over the
original column. 

Then delete that helper column. wrote:

Select current list, run the menu command Data > Text to Columns,
select Fixed Width, click the Next button twice to move to step 3 of
the wizard, select Text in the Column Data Format section, click
Finish. Then sort the list, and when the Sort Warning dialog appears,
choose Sort numbers and numbers stored as text separately.

chart Label text referencing worksheet cell value
I have a very simple bar chart that I want to display the values and the percentages of those values. For some reason, the percentage option is disabled under chart options, so i thought I would use a label instead, and send the calculation to it so it is dynamic. Sounds simple right? Wrong! I can only pass raw text into the label: Selection.Characters.Text = "100%" the following does not work, and the label disappears: .Selection.Characters.Text = Sheets("tbl_Voids").Range("A6794").Value is there a way of doing this? -- Message posted via htt...

NAICS Code Cell Format
Hello, I recently downloaded some US Census data (NAICS codes) into Excel and they have a cell format that I am unable to change. When I sort a list of numbers (e.g. 10, 12, 101, 111, 112), rather than sorting these numbers from lowest to highest (or vice versa), the numbers are sorted as follows: CURRENT SORT 10 101 111 112 12 DESIRED SORT 10 12 101 111 112 The list is being sorted as if the numbers have a hidden decimal after the first two numbers. I have tried to altering the number format to no avail. Does anyone have a suggestion for how I can change the cell format so that the number...

How do I reference the cell which returned a lookup value?
Imagine that I've got a column of 100 numbers. First, I want to find the maximum value (MAX function). Let's say that turns out to be in the 80th row. Now I want to find the minimum value from the 80th through the last (100th) row. Note that the range of my use of the MIN function depends on where the original MAX value came from. Any ideas on how to do this? I think what I need is a function which can tell me which row contains the winning MAX value.
