You will need to clean the "-" character at the end of the numbers - If all your number are in the same format with 6 characters simple clean or left function to remove the "-" once you have done that your new column should display all your numbers without the "-" you can either use this column in your sum function or create another column with "-" at the start so the digits are recognised as numbers and not text.

How many days from 01/11/1944 to 01/07/2016

Date difference from Jan 11, 1944 to Jan 7, 2016 The total number of days between Tuesday, January 11th, 1944 and Thursday, January 7th, 2016 is 26,294 days.
This is equal to 71 years, 11 months, and 27 days.
This does not include the end date, so it's accurate if you're measuring your age in days, or the total days between the start and end date. But if you want the duration of an event that includes both the starting date and the ending date, then it would actually be 26,295 days.
If you're counting workdays or weekends, there are 18,782 weekdays and 7,512 weekend days.
If you include the end date of Jan 7, 2016 which is a Thursday, then there would be 18,783 weekdays and 7,512 weekend days including both the starting Tuesday and the ending Thursday.
26,294 days is equal to 3,756 weeks and 2 days.
The total time span from 1944-01-11 to 2016-01-07 is 631,056 hours.
This is equivalent to 37,863,360 minutes.
You can also convert 26,294 days to 2,271,801,600 seconds.

What is formula to find percentage of females in my workplace?

      To get around this, you can calculate your numbers as percentages first. For example, if you type the formula =10/100 in cell A2, Excel will display the result as 0.1. If you then format that decimal as a percentage, the number will be displayed as 10%, as you 'd expect.Aug 2, 2011

HP 12 C display does not show entire numbers. How do I fix?

If you mean it is not showing everything after the decimal point, you can change that by pressing the [f] key followed by the number of decimal places to display. For example, to restrict it to 2 places, press [f][2]. If you want to see 4 places, press [f][4].

To show all possible decimal places, use the sequence [f][9].
From the manual (
"To display a different number of decimal places, press f followed by a digit key (0 through 9) specifying the number of decimal places. In the following examples, notice how the displayed form of the number inside the calculator - 14.87456320 - is rounded to the specified number of digits."

25096057-rvrejqbjq4zuw4cbinsyjvsy-5-0.png "Although nine decimal places were
specified after f, only eight are
displayed since the display can
show a total of only 10 digits. "
The standard display format, plus the specified number of decimal places, remain in effect until you change them; they are not reset each time the calculator is turned on. However, if Continuous Memory is reset, when the calculator is next turned on numbers will be displayed in the standard display format with two decimal places
If a calculated answer is either too small or too large to be displayed in the standard display format, the display format automatically switches to scientific notation. The display returns to the standard display format for all numbers that can be displayed in that format.

When I key the numbers and then total them up this is what I get at the end of the total 1276.33--64G*and the decimal don't aline. help

Could it be that you misunderstand the meaning of the decimals that are not aligned? On some calculators the exponent for the power of 10 in scientific notation is displayed almost on the same line as the rest of the mantissa.

9999555533331111 select any 6 number whose total only addition is 21

5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 1 = 21

That's a 5-number solution and that -I'm afraid- is the closest you're going to get.  The numbers are all odd numbers.  Add ANY 6 odd numbers together and you'll end up with an even number.  21 is an odd number so:

Answer: There is no possible 6-number solution to this problem.

Footer manual formatting

In Microsoft Excel, it is easier than in Word for formatting. On the Customise Footer page, use the A for formatting. Use the # for Page No and the double + for total no of pages. If you want the footer to show Page 3 of 5 Pages, this is what you have to do:
1) Type the word Page followed by a space,
2) Click on the # to display the correct page number,
3) Press the space bar and type the word "of"
4) Click on the double+ sign to insert the total number of pages
5) Press the space bar and type the word "pages"
In Word it is almost the same procedure.
Best of luck
