Hi, I saw a code posted on meadinkent website with the topic "Creating basic XML data files from Excel and Access using VBA", but I would like to know if someone knows how to change the encoding from <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO88591"?> to <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF8"?>. Thanks in advance hectoret@hotmail.com

Can anyone help me with a formula to count days within a month only. I have two columns titled "Start Date" and "Finish Date" eg. Start Date is 22 Jan 18 and Finish Date is 10 Feb 18. Is there a formula to count the number of days (within those two columns) for the month of January 2018 only? It would equal 10 days. I then need another formula, same example as above, to calculate the days that would be returned for February 2018 only, ie. would equal 10 days. The total amount of lines within the speadsheet could be anywhere up to 500 lines, so I would like to count all 500 lines and days counted for months only. Hope that makes sense. Thanks.

Hi Chris,
Is it easy to "switch" your WordNum Function, so that if the user supplies a value in text, eg one thousand and fifty, it returns the value 1050?
Thanks

Hi Everyone,
Here is an Excel number speller (using some www.meadinkent.co.uk VBA, Visual Basic for Applications, code I tweaked) I wrote that either displays any decimal number entered as a decimal number rounded to thousandths or dollars and cents. I would love to have it read decimals all the way to millionths, billionths, trillionths, etc., but VBA tends to stump me. Lol Any help would be appreciated. My email is treeguywussupmeadinkent@yahoo.com
The sheet uses range B1:C5, cell B1 was named "CurrencySymbol" and limited to a list of "" (i.e., a blank cell or "empty string") or "$." Here are example results followed by formulae and VBA:
Sample Results (with CurrencySymbol = "empty string," ie., "") 1,234,567.891501 1,234,567.891501 one million, two hundred thirtyfour thousand, five hundred sixtyseven eight hundred ninetytwo thousandths one million, two hundred thirtyfour thousand, five hundred sixtyseven and eight hundred ninetytwo thousandths
Sample Results (i.e., with CurrencySymbol = "$"): $ 1,234,567.891501 $1,234,567.89 one million, two hundred thirtyfour thousand, five hundred sixtyseven dollars eightynine cents one million, two hundred thirtyfour thousand, five hundred sixtyseven dollars and eightynine cents
Formulae (i.e., with cell B1 or CurrencySymbol value = "$"): $ 1234567.891501 =IF(CurrencySymbol="$",TEXT(C1,"$#,##0.00"),C1) =wordnum(C1)&IF(CurrencySymbol<>"$",""," dollars") "=IF(CurrencySymbol=""$"",wordnum(ROUND((C1INT(C1)),2)*100)&"" cents"", wordnum(ROUND(($C$1INT($C$1)),3)*1000)&"" thousandths"")" =C3&" and "&C4

Hi all,
I'm trying to create a student loan calculator in Excel(google sheets) where I can add additional payments but it would only add it for a specific date not every single payment. I've used the formula: =if(day(A27)=Day($B$5),$B$6,"") where A27 is date, B5 is my scheduled monthly payment date, B6 is payment amount. This works for changing my scheduled monthly payment to a specified day of the month throughout the sheet, but what I want to do is allow 20 rows for additional payment dates,
For example B10:B30 (any date for additional payment) C10:C30 (amount of additional payment). A31:A1000 (date in 1 day increments, starts at 1/1/2016, 1/2/2016, etc) D31:D1000 (Additional payment amount). I want to enter 1/2/2016 into B10, $30 into C10 and then $30 is pops into D32. Then enter 1/5/2016 into B11, $40 into C11, then $40 pops up into D35.
Any thoughts? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Best,
Robert rpdahlke@gmail.com

This is the first time I have used the forum/site. I found it today while search for a database to save all my business contacts. I found the Associate leave planner and thought that it would be a great tool if the titles were editable. Does anyone know if the leave title could be changed to QAV? I would like to use the tool for my Supplier travel Visits if possible. Thanks for the help

Hi there, I have tried using the numbers to text with some success however I wish to use it for UK currency. The 'point' whatever value needs to be in pence and whole numbers i.e. twenty not two, zero.
I have tried a formula to use the WordNum which does actually work quite well but falls over sometimes, for example 11 pence would be 11 pence but 10 pence would be one pence and the zero ignored. The formula is: =CONCATENATE(wordnum(ROUND(L22,0))," POUNDS ",wordnum(RIGHT(L22,2))," PENCE")
Anyway I hope this can be solved!
Many thanks Kevin kjthorley@gmail.com

So I'm using excel and I have a question. so I am building a bid worksheet. in sheet1 I have a bunch of crap. in sheet2 I have a bunch of Item names in A2:A120 then In B2:B120 I have the Price of said items. so I was wondering if there is a way or formula so lets say in a cell I type in the word "Honeywell" then in another cell next to it, it prints the price "$$$" any help or guidance would be helpful.
