How Do I Format Email Addresses As Text Only?

I have a large database with names, addresses etc. When I try to make changes
to the email address, like change the font color or change on letter, Excel
tries to email the address. If I click in the formula bar to make the
changes, it automatically changes it back to all blue text and underlined. I
have tried to format all of the cells as "Text" to show as entered, but it
doesnt work. PLEASE HELP

In my Excel spreadsheet I have a column to store the email addresses of my clients. Every time I click on the text of an email address, it automatically opens Outlook with a new message composed to that address. How do I stop this from happening? I don't even use Outlook for my email and this is really frustrating. I've tried changing the format of the column to no avail.

Thank you; your help is most appreciated.

Hi
I am a new user and trying to setup a database in excel. I can select all addresses and copy but when trying to paste into excel it does so in 1 cell.

Is there a way I can paste the separate email id's into individual cells so I don't have to do it individually?

Many thanks

Is there a way I can use conditional formatting or something to change the color of the cell once I enter a value or text into that cell? For example if I currently have the A2 cell color as a gray color, and I enter information into A2 can I have it set to automatically change to no fill or any other color without having to click out of the cell, back into it, and then clicking the button?? Does that make sense??? Can someone help me?


I am creating a data sheet to be completed by other users. I would like to
format the text cells (name, etc) to have text entered as uppercase
automatically although the user might use title or lower case.

UPPER function cannot make cell look at itself and perform the function

I am looking for assistance in having one cell in a text format equals another cell that contains a time value in hh:mm format.

For example: Cell A1 has a time format (hh:mm) value of 04:00; which is the Start Time. I would like cell D1 to have a text format value of "04:00" (result is dependant upon what is entered in A1). I would duplicate the same formulas to reflect Stop Times in other cells.

My final result is to have another cell (F1) use the Concatenate formula to have the Start and Stop time shown in one cell as "04:00 - 12:30". The times would change based on the Time formated values entered into the Start and Stop time cells.

I have researched this in the board and found many excellent ways to do the opposite, but not convert Time format to Text format. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

I have been using Excel (XP) to make a text chart for several months. Some of
my text entries are rather lengthy. The past two weeks these lengthy entries
are showing up as pound signs (#########) when I click off the cell. I know
the text will fit in the cell, and the problem isn't solved by making the
cell bigger or using a little bit less text. I have the cells formatted as
"text" and "wrap to fit". I have printed the pages and the printed version
also has pound signs. I just want my text to show up!



How do I get the colors to change automatically when I use a drop down list.
Per say here is what I am trying to do

If a certain "word" is used from the drop down list I want the background of
that cell to change its color to "green." And if later I change the "word" to
another from the drop down list, it will change it's color to a specified
color.

The drop down list that I use was created from cells that have the colors
already in the "word", but I do not know how to make the list show the colors
so it puts the word & color automatically in the drop down list to the cell
with the drop down (if that makes any sense).

If there is a way, please spell it out simple enough for me to understand,
as I don't know fully the capabilities of formulas or vba.



Is it possible to change the color of text using a formula, such as an IF
statement? What I have in mind is something like this (stated simply): If
cells B9 or N9 or Z9 or AL9 are blank, do nothing, else color text in cell S4
red.

I have a workbook that has compliance dates in columns "F","G" and "H" from row 7. What I need is when the date in either column comes within 30 days to auto send an email, address in column "A", recipients name in column "B". and then place todays date in column 'P". ALso need to send a follow up email when either date comes within 7days and then place todays date in column "Q". If there is a date in column "P" then don't send email. If there is a date in column "Q" then don't send follow up. Can this be done without the users intervention and each time the workbook is opened.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Hi,

I am looking to change how an active cell is viewed. For instance when you are looking at your spreadsheet you can see the active cell has a thin black border around it. I would like to change the border to a thicker one and change the color to blue or red. I am trying to make it easier to the eye so when you are working on a large spreadsheet it is immediatly apparent where you are to avoid squinting.

If anyone can help me please let me know.

Hi,

I have the following code to put data from a VBA userform into Excel

Dim Sh As Worksheet
Dim Rng As Range
Set Sh = ActiveSheet
Set Rng = Sh.Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0)
With Rng
.Cells(1, 1) = Surname.Text
.Cells(1, 2) = forename.Text
.Cells(1, 3) = datein.Text
.Cells(1, 4) = origin.Text
.Cells(1, 5) = Addressee.Value
.Cells(1, 6) = usual.Value
.Cells(1, 7) = dateto.Text
.Cells(1, 8) = permission.Value
.Cells(1, 9) = dateseen.Text
.Cells(1, 10) = requestview.Value
.Cells(1, 11) = Invoice.Value
.Cells(1, 12) = notes.Text
.Cells(1, 13) = datecompleted.Text
.Cells(1, 14) = holdsend.Value
.Cells(1, 15) = fee.Text
.Cells(1, 16) = notes2.Text
.Cells(1, 17) = dateseen.Text
.Cells(1, 18) = invoicesent.Text
.Cells(1, 19) = Paid.Text
.Cells(1, 20) = Complete.Value

End With

What I want to do next is click on the surname on the speadsheet and call up the userform with the fields complete for that person. I would also like to be able to edit/update the form and update the information on the speadsheet accordingly.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Many thanks!


I am trying to insert a range of cell in the body of an outlook email with the same format. The code I am using now is below and it does insert anything in the email body.

Code:

Sub Mail()
Dim OutApp As Object
    Dim OutMail As Object
    Set OutApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
    OutApp.Session.Logon
    Set OutMail = OutApp.CreateItem(0)
    On Error Resume Next
    With OutMail
        .To = "cbelcher@jpfryelaw.com"
        .CC = ""
        .BCC = ""
        .Subject = "Burden Report"
        .Body = ActiveSheet.Range("A1:D12")
        .Attachments.Add ("C:\Documents and   Settings\cbelcher\Desktop\Burden Report.xls")
End With
    On Error GoTo 0
    Set OutMail = Nothing
    Set OutApp = Nothing
    Set objMsg = Nothing
End Sub





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 that....my formulas are quite complex already so I'm not sure I want to do it as part of the formula...thanks!


I know this question has been asked a bajillion times, so I apologize for the redundancy.

I am working with an Excel spreadsheet and saving it as a .csv file in order to upload to an application that parses out the .csv data as transactions. The system requires .csv files, so this is how I need to save my doc (with this extension). I have been successful at preventing Excel from coverting that long number into scientific format. I have saved as a TXT file, pasted the longer number and it displays correctly. That is all good. But I have to save as a .csv. So if I do that, close the Excel window, and then open again (as the .csv file), the numbers are back to being displayed in scientific format. I have tried creating an Excel doc from scratch and entering text in Text format, to see if this created a cleaner file. But again, the second I save as .csv, close the window and then open that file up again, that dang scientific format is back.

Does anyone have any idea of how to work around this? Once I have successfully gotten the numbers to display as the long-chain number, how can I get them to "stick" so that they don't revert back to scientific format when I reopen the file?

Thanks so much for your help!


Hello ,

Here is my issue:

I have a list of SKUs in Excel and I need to add one same word to 500 cells that have pre-existing text in the cells. See example below:

1) List of SKU's in cells:

34
35
39
55


2) text that needs to be added IN FRONT of every number:

DF

So the result would be:

DF34
DF35
DF39
etc.

How do I do that in a formula and not manually? I found another similar thread and I understand how to do it from the instructions there but the same text goes on the back and the result is: 34DF but I need it to be like: DF34.

I am using Office 2007 for mac.

Thank you for the help,
Chris


I have two columns in my spreadsheet. Column A has no blank fields, Column B has some blank fields. I would like to show the text from Column A in the same row of Column B only when Column B is blank.

So, basically I'm after: If column B has text, do nothing. If column B is blank, then list text from Column A.

Right now I've created Column C with this formula =IF(ISBLANK(B1), A1. That's working to get the text from A1 when B1 is blank. What can I do/add to get it pull the text from B1 if there is text there? Or...is there a better approach altogether?


Here's my formula... =SUM(S7)-T5

If that number is less than -100, I want it to show as blank.

Any help?

Right now, I'm trying to accomplish this by making a conditional format...meaning when my cell equals less than -100 I make the cell color and font the same (so it looks blank, but its not). When I print it, it still shows the negative value.


Thanks.


I'm using some basic code below in an on Workbook Open event to format cells with a value less then 2 and less than 1 with a particular color.

The code works, but it really slows my worksheet down when opening. Is there better way to write this? Thanks!

Code:

 
Dim myRange As Range
Dim cell As Range
Set myRange = Range("V6:V50000")
    For Each cell In myRange
    If cell.Value < 2 Then cell.Font.ColorIndex = 5
    If cell.Value < 1 Then cell.Font.ColorIndex = 3
    Next
