Number Format Problem
I am importing data from a program at work. The data come in in th
format of ###@##(three numbers, a letter, and then 2 more numbers).
The problem is that when a code such as 123E04 is imported, exce
thinks it means 1.23E+04. This is a problem becasue the data I need i
the E04 part. (I use the RIGHT(cell,3) formula to get the portion
want.) Any ideas on how to get the number in the format I want?
have tried changing the cell characteristics, and all kinds of stuff.
kola5567's Profile: http://...Conditional Formatting Nested Formulas
I'm working with a large spreadsheet that has multiple status options. Each
status has different criteria for example:
Status Green Yellow Red
T <60 >=60,<=80 >80
S <20 >=20,<=45 >45
D <30 >=30,<=55 >55
C <90 >=90,<=120 >120
B <30 >=30,<=60 >60
A <10 >=10,<=40 >40
I would like to apply conditional formats according to the status criteria.
Is that possible given that each status has a different criterial. Thank you!
One way to get going here ..

Does anyone know whether it's possible to use a string as part of the
conditional expression ? The code I'm trying to use is :
<CONDITION> Entry.Item.ItemLookupCode = "GV" </CONDITION>
It's working fine if I replace the "GV" with a number, but always hits the
ELSE expression when it's a string. I've also tried using a string variable
here, which also fails.
Nope, no string comparisons.

I'd like to know if Excel will apply conditional formatting to a value if it falls within a range of values or named range. Specifically, I'd like to change the color of the cell to various colors based on which group or named range the initials of the person contained in that cell fall. Example: Group1 contains the initials KR, KM, Group 2 contains SE, PK. I'd like the conditional formatting to change the color of cells based on whether the initials contianed within that cell belong to Group1 or Group2. If I enter the initials KR into a cell, I'd like that cell to be green. If...Transfer Cell Formatting for linked cells

I would like to take one cell and have it with the Auto Sum feature. Here's the catch: I have applied a simple Conditional Formatting to a number of cells. The formatting is setup for blank formatting: equal to =""
There is nothing between the quotes, which tells the formatting that if there isnt anything in the cell, then give the cell a color. If ANY value is placed in the cell, take away the color.
So with that said, is there a way to have the Auto Sum feature add up those cells and tell me how many that are left that need a value? For example, if there are 60 cells to...Conditional Formatting in Excel 2007
