Hello,

 

I have an issue.  I created an Invoice spreadsheet integrated with VB
and using a form.  What my project does is Opens an Excel spreadsheet.
There is a button that says: New invoice.  My macro, clears all input'd
data on the sheet, changes the invoice number to the next sequential
number (1400, then goes to 1401), saves the worksheet and opens the form
attached.

 

The data can be inputted easier from the form to the excel spreadsheet.
On the form I have 4 buttons that create a new invoice like mentioned
above, Print the Invoice and Save the invoice.

 

What the save invoice does is opens another workbook that can be saved
with the name you want the invoice to be named, and so the original
invoice can always produce the next invoice number in the sequence and
no duplicates will occur. 

 

And the forth is a clear button to start that invoice over if needed.

 

I have the whole project working, Except the values of hours and units.
What happens is, you enter the hours (ex. 3) and the total changes to 3,
then you add the units, (Ex. 40).  So the total should be 120.  Well
when I enter the hours, the =sum(E5 + F5) changes from the formula to
text and changes to just the number 3.  

 

I have worked in excel for 10 yrs and never has an issue.  

 

I am using Excel 2003.  I just got it 2 weeks ago.  So I am not sure if
it is the upgrade.  I have tried everything Please help.  I am figuring
I will enter the sum function in another cell off to the side and create
a macro called update to special paste the values in the correct field.
But that is really not the route I want to take.

 

 

Thanks, 

Tara D'Agostino

Hi Tara
It sounds as though the column holding your units has been formatted as =
text.=20
Reformat the column with Formats>Cells>Number>General  or Number to the =
correct decimal places you require.
In a blank cell (formatted general) type a 1. Copy the cell. Mark your =
block of data holding the units and Paste Special>Multiply.
This will convert all previously entered values to numeric, and =
hopefully your problem will disappear.

Stagger X-axis text
In 1-2-3 I could stagger the text in the X-axis. In Excel it seems that I can only rotate the text to 90 degrees. Is there a way to stagger and leave horizontal? Specifically, I have all the provinces (or 10 of them) across the axis and they take up room when spelt out (no abbreviations allowed). I would rather the first, third, fifth ... etc. be higher and the second, fourth etc. be lower to allow the chart to be narrower and still read the text clearly.

Timestamp value of GINA window presentation
I am currently troubleshooting slow logon times for a client with computer infrastructure spread across the globe. Before I start invesagating I want to create a baseline for logon times. I have modified the clients logon script to record when it starts and when it ends. I am using the computers tick count to record how long the computer has been on, but realize that there is a space of time between the user authenicating to the computer (control-alt-delete) and when the logon script starts, if the customer turns his computer on and then leave for an extended period of time I ...

Help ! formatting data to text
I am creating data in an Excel spreadsheet. I then want to get that data into a simple text email. I have some problems and questions... 1) how do I get the columns of data to line up evenly when I copy the data to email text ? Keep in mind I need to be in simple text format, not HTML or rich text. Every time I do this, all columns become chaos and are unreadable. 2) Is there a simple way to automate the creation of an email from an excel file ? this is less important to me. Thanks in advance WxMachine #1. I think it may have to do with what email client you use, too. I copy and ...

IF / SUM
I have a spreadsheet with 17 rows, each representing a project name. In the columns, I have 2 cells for each week: Est and Actual. At the end of each row, I would like a row total for Est and another for Actual. As there are 20+ weeks represented, I cannot select the cells that have the criteria I'm looking for without using a more complex formula than SUM. Any ideas?

Formula for ageing debt
I'm trying to do a spreadsheet so that when I put a debt amount in the first column, after 10 days it will automatically move to the next column and move on every 10 days till a 60 days column where it gets added to any amount already there. Can anyone clue me up to a formula to do this?

formula to get sheet name
hi, can a formula retreive a worksheet name or does it need to be macro based? thanks, N.S. Hi Nigel, This formula that takes care of the possible situation whereby you have only one sheet in the workbook and its name is the same as the workbook's. Note: CELL("filename") will only work if the file has been saved at least once and if the file is opened in a different language system, the argument "filename" will need to be changed manually to the corresponding word (e.g. in Spanish "nombrearchivo"): =LOOKUP(REPT("z",255),SUBSTITUTE(MID(CE...

How can I keep track of when (date and time) data is entered into.
I am trying to create a spreadsheet for a high school class. I need to be able to track when a student has entered data into specific cells of the spreadsheet. Any ideas? In the code behind the worksheet, enter (eg) Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Cells(1, 1).Value = Now() End Sub This will enter in Cell A1 the date and time at which any entry is made in that worksheet.

Why won't formulas obey vertical alignment commands?
I have a spreadsheet with numbers and text. Many numbers are derived from cell formulas. I can vertically align the text in all the cells in the numbers/text worksheet, but if I change the numbers to display formulas only, then the cell values automatically align at the bottom of the cell no matter what I have set the alignment to be. I just want to align the formulas at the tops of the cells so that I have room to write underneath them on a printed copy. Is this possible? Why not increase the Row height and write *above* them? -- HTH, RD =============================================...

Text in column causing SUMPRODUCT error
Greegings. I have a SUMPRODUCT formula that is having errors when one of the columns has text instead of a NULL or a number. If I delete the text cells in that column it works as desired. I'll give a simple example. Suppose I have the following in A1:B6.... a 1 a 2 a abc b 1 b 1 a 2 And I need this... =SUMPRODUCT(($A$1:$A$6="a")*($B$1:$B$6)) It errors out until I delete the "abc" in cell B3, then it works as desired. I tried to replace the "abc" with a 0 by trying this... =IF(ISNUMBER(B3)=FALSE,0,B3) And it works for that pa...
