I have a spreedsheet that shows some percentages example( 9.98% and 15.87%) I am needing to find a way to hide the percentage sign so that they just show as 9.98 and 15.87. The problem I am having is that are been worked out as a percentage, so changing the format of the cell does not work.
Can anyone help?


Hey everyone,

I'm really hoping someone can help me with this...

I need to plot percentages over time in a line graph in excel. I don't want to have to do a percentage equation in the spreadsheet, I just want excel to take two sets of values and display the percentage in the chart. For example, I need B1 as a percentage of B2 for week 1, C1 as a percentage of C2 for week 2, etc....
Can someone please offer a suggestion for how to do this? I would really appreciate it.
Also, would it be possible to link data from other sheets in the workbook into one single chart?

Hello all,

New to the forums.

I'm in the process of creating a new report and I'm stuck.

My report consists of a set target in a field, a score and percentage of target.

e.g Target is 400

score is 450.

Percentage is 1.125 of target. (=score/target)

Now what I would like to do is create a formula that does not go above 100%, but instead work in reverse if you go over the target.

E.g. Target 400 .. Score was 450 ... percentage of target is 87.5%

Thanks in advanced.

Hi Guys,

Could you be so kind as to provide some code that will enable me to display a text box on a userform rounded up to 1 decimal place.

Where am I going wrong....
it calculates the number entered in textbox1 and divides it by a value that changes in cell O26 but the answer is in about 8 or more decimel places.
Only need like 65.3 as an answer not 65.277756942

This is the code ive used.

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()

TextBox2.Value = Val(TextBox1.Value) / Range("O26").Value

End Sub

I have noticed that a handful of people at work enter a formula as =+A1+A2 instead of the way I would enter it =A1+A2

What is the origin of the extra plus sign at the beginning? To me it seems to be unproductive and is simply not needed. I have been using Excel for over 12 years and have never needed to enter any formulas like that. Does this originate back to a much older version of Excel where it was once needed?

Just curious.

I know I can put a $ sign for all references in a formula for a cell by pressing F4, but is there a quick way for doing this for multiple cells (e.g. a column) or do I have to go through all the cells individually?





I am trying to correct a formula for a productivity worksheet in excel. The idea is that we would have the ability to input the number of hours worked each day and the number of direct hours (working with clients) per day. Then take the daily percentages and add them then devide them to determine the final productivity percentage for the week. Additionally not everyone works a full week so I would need it to only divide the percentages of the days that were completed. Any suggestions? or does anybody know a formula that would accomplish this already? I am good with basic excel and was able to identify a flaw in the current productivity sheet.

Hi there

I am trying to calculate our On Time Delivery. I want this as a simple percentage of jobs. I have got this running in the following way:

Column M - Estimated Delivery dates
Column N - Actual Delivery dates
Column O - =IF(SUM(M2-N2)>0,1,0)

Then I have calculated On Time Delivery as: =SUM((SUM(O2:O252))/(COUNTA(N2:N252)))

This seems to work fine. My problem is, if we enter a date in Estimated without a corresponding Actual date, the formula for Column O fills out anyway and improves our On Time Delivery Percentage. How can I set this up so that the formula doesn't calculate if there is no data in Column N?

Any help much appreciated



Entering time values in custom format [h]:mm:ss
Cells accept hours over 23,
Adding cells in column returns correct total time.
Have not found a way to multiply these cells by a $ hourly rate.
So use HOUR(cell ref) and MINUTE(cell ref) to capture values in referenced
cell - then use these values to calculate total payment for $rate per hour.
However, the HOUR(cell ref) formula returns the hours in excess of 24 when
the cell contains an hour value in excess of 23 (ie 27 hours returns 3).

I have a UserForm with several fields on it: 5 are 'required' and the other 6 are 'optional'. If a user doesn't enter a value for ALL of the 5 'required' fields, how do I get the code to return the user to the UserForm (with, I assume, the values they already entered, still showing)?

I have the AutoOpen code that starts things off, and then, in turn, loads the UserForm with the fields that need to be populated.

I can't figure out how to route the user back to the UserForm, to enter the 'missed' data.

Hi all,

I've had a long search through your pages to see if this question has been answered before but having browsed through about 50 pages worth of threads I couldn't see anything, but if I am repeating prior information I do apologise.

I've written a macro that is relatively simple. It just takes some information in one format, rearranges it, adds some formatting and performs some calculations. Nothing incredibly fancy but it works fine on my computer.

Now, I need to share this macro with some other people, so basically I've just sent that excel file on to the people that need to use it. Should be fine and in most cases it is, however there is one user who although they can open the file, can't seem to get the macro to run properly.

It seems to get a small way through the macro but then stop with no error messages or any sign that it hasn't completed properly.

I have checked Macro Security level and that is the same as mine, Tools - Add-Ins is the same, In Visual Basic, Tools - References is the same as mine. It is the same Operating system and the same version of Excel.

I have even signed into this person's computer as myself (it's a big company network thing) and tried to run the macro and it works fine, so there is nothing wrong with the hardware.

I've googled and searched and tried everything I can think of but I'm no closer to solving this problem, so if anyone has read through this wall of text and can come up with a possible solution, that would be greatly appreciated to save me from tearing ALL my hair out!

Thanks very much for your time.

i've been trying to figure this out on my own but seem to be hitting road blocks.

i have a column of numbers that we extracted from a database as whole numbers. for instance, 30 should be .30 and 100 should be 1.00. when i try to increase or decrease the decimal point it doesn't allow me to convert it to those positions.

would any one have a tip of how i can easily convert this? there are over 2000 entries in my excel spreadsheet so to do it manually would take a lot of time/effort.

thank you!


I have a table with various percentages, and I would like a formula to have an average of these. Please see attached file to get more of an idea.


We have an Excel spreadsheet that sits on the network.
People need to open the file to be able to sign up for various duty rosters.
We would like for the file to open for the first person.
And then for any others after that, get a message that the file is in use
WITHOUT the option to open a read-only copy.
Our staff can't read and they keep opening additional copies of the file!
I have read about sharing the file and I don't think that would make things
any better.

How can I stretch a spreadsheet to fit the page? If I try to make it one page by one page, it changes nothing. If I change the percentage, it becomes two wide...I am just trying to change the height so that it can be read on an 8.5 x 11 piece of paper.

Hi there, I have a string of numbers and I would like to add zeros to the end of it.

For example my numbers are formatted like this: 1234 and I would like to add zeros to the end so it looks like this: 123400 (no decimal).

I would do it manually but I have a column of over 2000 different numbers.

Thanks for your help, you guys are great!

I have sheet with rows and each row has formulas based on cells in that row.
I would like to have a new row automatically inserted with the formulas

rows and after they are filled up, a new row is added automatically? How do I
do this?

This may be less of an Excel question than a general data display question, but I'll try here.

I have 3 variables that I'm charting. I have one on the primary axis and it's values are in the billions. I have one on the secondary axis and it's a percentage. I need to display a 3rd who's value is in the millions. If I put it on the primary axis, you cannot see modest changes.

Is there a tricky way to get all three on one graph? I know I could split on two graphs, so that's my backup plan.



How do I code a custom format to show 0% as a dash? I know how to make it blank, but I don't really want formulas are quite complex already so I'm not sure I want to do it as part of the formula...thanks!

Good afternoon,

Is there a way to enter a colon into a standard number to create a value that can be formatted into a 24 hour time value ?

eg a time is listed as 1345 with a general number format, and I want it returned as 13:45 witha custom format of hh:mm.

Other than creating a table and using a vlookup function, I am hoping there is a better way?


I am needing a formula that would cause a currency amount from a calculation to round up or down to the nearest 100.00 mark. The current formula is ie: =E10*F10 (e10 being an amount of money and f10 being a percentage fo it.) I am needing the resulting answer to round up or down to the nearest 100. So if the answer is below the 50 mark it would round down and above it would round up. If that is not possible then just rounding down would be acceptable.

How do i do this??


I'm trying to use conditional formatting to highlight phone calls that came in between certain hours.

The call times are in the custom format h:mm, although it could easily be changed to an Excel time format. I'm using Excel 2002. I want the cell to have a different fill color if it falls within particular time frames.

Example: If the call came in between 22:00 and 23:59 color is light green.
If the call came in between 23:59 and 08:00 the color is yellow.

Example spreadsheet is attached.

Thanks in advance.

Thnx for your help man. Now I have another situation.

I have the following:

1. Login form containing username and password fields.
2. Data entry form

I want to do the following:

1. Coding for username and password fields, which, If the login is successful, takes me to DATA Entry Form, Otherwise shows message "Invalid Login".

Thanks in anticipation.

I just worked with a data set where I needed to create a unique key based on existing information where no unique key was set up as a field. I accomplished it by concatenating (using the & [concatenation] operator) several fields based on what I hypothesized and observed about their content.

I'm thinking there has to be a more automated way to discover the best unique key of existing fields and their data. I thought I'd post this as a challenge because I don't know the "right" (or better) answer.

Anyone have any ideas?

Hi all,

I hope you can help me with what I would like to do. I've searched and searched and not come up with anything yet!!

I have one sheet which is my 'data' sheet with a number of columns, one of which is a date which may be repeated.

I then want to use another sheet with two cells where two dates can be entered and a button which allows you to copy the rows of data from the data sheet which have dates between the two specified originally. The list in the data sheet may not be in date order although I could update a macro to do this for me if needed. I would also like to do it so that if "ALL" is typed in the date fields, it pulls over ALL the data. (Or something similar)

Any help you can give would be much appreciated.
