Thank you

you know how sometimes when you paste a value into a cell it reads like a
number but Excel thinks its text and aligns it to the left and gives you a
little dropdown menu with options such as keep this value as text or to
convert it to numeric data. I have a whole column of mostly numbers (and
excel is storing them as numeric data) and want to convert them to text. I
don't have that menu option available since excel thinks they're numbers.

I'm asking this on behalf of a friend who is having trouble answering. Since we have different schedules, responses may be spread out.

I'm using Excel 2003 and I need to take data from cells and convert it to numeric value. For example, if "Alex" output "1", if "Bob" output "2", if "Carl" output "3" etc. I know the "IF" function can return the value I'm looking for if true, and if false for the first value pass it off to another nested IF function, for example, =IF(Alex,1,IF(Bob,2,IF(Carl,3,Unknown))). Unfortunately, I can only nest up to 7 IF functions, and I have 10 variables I need to convert to numeric designations. Any help on a better way of doing this would be much appreciated.

The specific data I need to convert is located in a table at . The data I'm having a problem with is under the Yield column, the numeric designations and the text I want them to result from is listed below if this is relevant.

0 - Ultimate Wad
1 - 3W

Greetings all,

I have a problems that would be great if someone could solve.

I've got a table that contains a number of dates and below that, an alphabetic grade that a person received on each date. I need to find a way to convert each alphabetic grade to a numeric grade and then get the average of that numeric grade to appear in the 'average' cell at the end.

I know how to convert alphabetic to numeric and have that result appear in another column, but I need to just have the average of all the grades appear and I don't want to add any new columns. I know it's possible, but I can't get it to work.

The alphabetic grades and their equivalents a U=49.9, DC:62.5, VC=80, SC=90, EC=95.

I've attached a simplified version of the doc.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Does the PROPER function (or the VBA equivalent) work differently in different countries or does it always apply the same fixed logic of capitalising the first character of each word?

The reason I ask is that I'm based in the UK, but I work on data from UK, France and The Netherlands.

When processing data each month, one step in the process is to convert a number of columns to Proper Case. This is done either using the PROPER function (if there's not much data), or the following VBA:

For Each c In Selection
    c.Value = StrConv(c.Value, vbProperCase)
Next c

This works fine on my English data, but the French and Dutch language have different rules for what is and isn't capitalised (for example, in Dutch, letters "Ij" are considered a single character and if they're the first two characters in a word, both should be capitalised). Similarly, in French, certain words beginning l' need to have the l (L) in lower case.

Using wither of these methods of converting to proper case results in what are technically gramattical errors in these other languages, just as having text like "tHis tExt cApitalised" would be wrong in English (NB: My code doesn't actually do that to text! That's just an example of how incorrect capitalisation in English would be incorrect IF applied in that manner. Just as reading that text in English appears incorrect to an English speaker, the conversions that I do perform on the French and Dutch data will appear incorrect to French or Dutch speakers).

If PROPER or VBA Code does work differently in different countries, is there any way of forcing a UK English setup to apply the Dutch or French capitalisation rules?

Is there any way to convert a Word table that has multiple paragraphs in each
cell to Excel without going through a third-party converter? I have several
hundred rows to convert, and copying and pasting each paragraph into the
Excel Workbook is not a viable option. The Table to Text tool in Word also
doesn't give me control over the paragraphing. With everything I've tried,
each paragraph winds up in a separate row in Excel.

Thanks for any support.

I'm updating numeric data on a pre-existing excel spreadsheet using C# and I was just wondering if Excel has any built in option to display null numeric values as zero. Currently, my null values display as blank.

I can convert these values in my C# code however if there's a way to already do this in excel, I'll take that approach instead.

Thanks in advance.



I am having a problem with a workbook that was created in a German version of excel, and is being opened with an English version of excel.

The specific cell that is causing the problems is coded as:
My expectation is that excel would translate this cell to:

If I manually change the german word "Adresse" to the english word "Address", it will work as expected. The problem with the manual translation is that when the German colleague tries to make updates, he will run into the same problem. We needs to to translate automatically when excel is opened. All other functions seem to translate as expected. Any suggestions on how to get this cell to translate properly?

Excel version is 2003, SP3 (11.8328.8329) , also the office proofing tools are installed with the German dictionaries.

An extension to the Convert function to convert a decimal currency into a
word format (ie. from $51.06 to Fifty One Dollars and Six Cents). This would
be ideal for invoices & other functions.

please let me know how do i convert bahttext into english text

Hey All,

After reading some threads online, I believe that the .Formula method auto translates functions to their respective non-English translations (or am I incorrect in this belief?).

I was wondering whether using the Evaluate function in VBA, using regular English version functions, would also automatically translate to the correct function in the non-English versions?
