IS THERE A FORMULA IN EXCEL THAT WILL HIGHLIGHT CELLS THAT MATCH A NUMERICAL INVENTORY LIST?


One way would be to create a colunn C and use the formula: =COUNTIF(B$2:B$200,A2) in cell C2. Then copy the formula down to C200. (assuming you have 200 entries in B...). This will put a "1" next to every number in Column A that has a match in column B. Then you could put a conditional formula in column A that will highlight the cell if the value in column C is equal to 1. Alternatively you could also simply filter for 1's in column C and then manually highlight the cells that show up in A!

Dim DecimalPlace, Count
ReDim Place(9) As String
Place(2) = " Thousand "
Place(3) = " Lac "
Place(4) = " Crore "
Place(5) = " Arab " ' String representation of amount
MyNumber = Trim(Str(MyNumber)) ' Position of decimal place 0 if none
DecimalPlace = InStr(MyNumber, ".")
' Convert Paise and set MyNumber to Rupee amount
If DecimalPlace > 0 Then
Paise = GetTens(Left(Mid(MyNumber, DecimalPlace + 1) & "00", 2))
MyNumber = Trim(Left(MyNumber, DecimalPlace - 1))
End If
Count = 1
Do While MyNumber <> ""
If Count = 1 Then Temp = GetHundreds(Right(MyNumber, 3))
If Count > 1 Then Temp = GetHundreds(Right(MyNumber, 2))
If Temp <> "" Then Rupees = Temp & Place(Count) & Rupees
If Count = 1 And Len(MyNumber) > 3 Then
MyNumber = Left(MyNumber, Len(MyNumber) - 3)
Else
If Count > 1 And Len(MyNumber) > 2 Then
MyNumber = Left(MyNumber, Len(MyNumber) - 2)
Else
MyNumber = ""
End If
End If
Count = Count + 1
Loop
Select Case Rupees
Case ""
Rupees = "No Rupees"
Case "One"
Rupees = "One Rupee"
Case Else

'Rupees = Rupees & " Rupees"
Rupees = "Rupees " & Rupees

End Select
Select Case Paise
Case ""

'Paise = ""
Paise = " Only"
Case "One"
Paise = " and One Paisa"
Case Else
Paise = " and " & Paise & " Paise"

End Select
ConvRs = Rupees & Paise
End Function

Case 7: GetDigit = "Seven"
Case 8: GetDigit = "Eight"
Case 9: GetDigit = "Nine"
Case Else: GetDigit = ""
End Select
End Function



save this as as ConvertRs.xla in Microsoft\AddIns folder

now, you'll have to activate this AddIns:
in your Excel Worksheet select:
Tools\Add.Ins...
Check the ConvertRs option
now this will be used as User Defined Function.
you can insert it from the Function Options or just enter the following command in the desired cell where you want the result:

=ConvertRs(Cell Reference)

Cell Reference means where the number is available, you want to convert.

Try this and then tell me the responce.

Convert function


BAHTTEXT(number)

The above function will convert a number to text. If you are referring to "figure" as a number than this should work for you.

You may want to try the TEXT(value,format_text) fucntion too but you'll need to supply a number format.

Hi,
Try selecting a cell and right click, Format cells, Font - Bold the text the way you want it to appear in that cell and then let it be the value you want to appear when you select that cell as a solution to a "What If" statement.

When I enter a formula in a cell with the the insert functon device, it does not calculate itself, but shows as text


Is there by any chance a space or any other character before the equals sign? That could cause your formula to display as text.
