change column name from letters to numbers?

I'm importing a 3rd party CSV file into Excel and then comparing some of 
the contents to a printed spec. Each numbered field in the spec 
corresponds to a column in the work sheet. I'd like to change the column 
headers from letters to numbers. Is that possible?

can i delete the last 3 characters in each cell in a column in 1 .
I have a column of names followed by a number. Obviously the names are of different lengths but the numbers are consistent, so i need to remove say 8 chars from the right of each filed in the column. I'm sure I have done this before but can't remember how! D'oh! In an empty column, enter this formula (assuming your names are in column A and all the numbers are 8 characters long) =LEFT(A1,LEN(A1) - 8) - works if there are no spaces between the name & numbers =LEFT(A1,LEN(A1) - 9) - works if there is one space between the name & numbers "homer" wrote:...

Ato generated control number
Hi , Thank you for any and all assistance. I have a customer entry form(CustEntryForm) the fields that I want to auto populate are CreationDate, ControlNumber. The CreationDate date/time stamps when the customer request is created. The ControlNumber is my request tracking field. The CreationDate field works. What I am having a problem with is getting the ControlNumber field to auto generate. The ControlNumber is being created based on the CreationDate field by grabbing the year portion of the date. The date is structured like yy-001(10-001) I have the following SQL state...

Returning text value instead of number
The following query IIf([Subject]="holidays",[SumOfNon Chargeable],"0") provides the value of the non chargeable field which originates as a number. The query returns the correct value but returns it as text and not a number, how can I rectify this? Help please... Omit the quotes around the zero: IIf([Subject]="holidays", [SumOfNon Chargeable], 0) Access sees the quotes, and assumes that it is Text. If that doesn't fix it, you need to dig deeper into how [SumOfNon Chargeable] is generated. -- Allen Browne - Microsoft MVP. Perth, Western Austra...

sequence numbers #2
how i can put sequence number after applying filter. if anyone can help me on this matter, i'll be very thankful. If your list begins in cell A1.... Insert a column and put SEQ in the "new" cell A1. Then put this formula in Cell A2 and copy down: =SUBTOTAL(3,B$2:B2) Now filter your list. That formula will count the number of non-blank, visible cells. Note the dollar sign in the formula. Cell A3 will count the non-blank, visible cells from A2:A3. Cell A5 will count them from A2:A5, etc. Does that help? -- Regards, Ron "Ashley" wrote: > how i can put se...

Trying to change floor plan units to millimeters but does not work

Font Size Changes when Hitting <Enter> Key
I have been scratching my head about this one for some time. I've looked all over the place and cannot find a solution. I have my default font as Calibri 11. I type, copy/paste from web pages, etc. Nothing special. When I hit <Enter>, the font size stays the same, Calibri 11. Then, and I'm not sure how it starts, but then I hit <Enter> and the font size changes to Calibri 9. When it starts, it keeps happening for all editing in that section of text. If there are two paragraphs of text in a bulleted list, one can have the issue and the other can be fine. It...

Record auto numbering
I suppose I shouldn't be concerned, but my record autonumbering jumped from 135 to 432,233 when I was trying to copy and paste common info. Any way to reset? Access Rookie If the numbers don't have "meaning" nor need to be sequential, no problem. Actually if they needed to be sequential or have meaing, there would be a problem as autonumbers often aren't as you just found out. Still that is quite a jump. Copying and pasting can be a problem. It's better to import instead. You could empty the table, like exporting to Excel, then do a compact and ...

How to get to last column in a worksheet in XP
I just want to jump to the last occupied column in a row in a worksheet. It used to be that you hit "end-enter" to go to the last column, but that doesn't seem to work anymore. You can hit "home" and go to the FIRST column in the row, but how the heck do you get to the LAST column in a row? I tried to set up a "Go To" kind of bookmark but that didn't work well. Is the only way to get to the last column to tab-tab-tab-tab-tab over? It didn't used to be that way! You must remember incorrectly, ctrl + end and ctrl + home, if that doesn't ...

Can we change cell color programatically?
Hi all I'm using Excel 2003. Does Excel allow me to change the fill-color of a cell based upon the contents of that cell? For example: If the formula of a cell calculates its value to be less then, say, 100, I'd like to fill-color that cell to Green. Otherwise I'd like to color that cell with no color. Is this possible?

Excel Comments boxes change size
