Convert Text to Numbers or Numbers to Text



🔔 SUBSCRIBE to my channel ➜

This video covers how to convert or change text to numbers using several methods. If you want to recode text to numbers (or vice versa) without using any VBA, these are some of the easier ways to do it. By default text is left aligned and numbers are right aligned in the cell, so you’d need to be aware of this. There are a couple of functions (or formulas) you can use to perform the change. Converting letters to number has never been easier! Also how to convert or change numbers to text using some different methods, so if you want to learn to fix numbers stored as text, you’ll see it here too.

  • Hello. Great video. I do have an additional question: I have over 1000 cells with numbers (2030), numbers with letters (2402AA), and numbers with dashes and letters (2000-AA). Can I filter the numbers in sequential order while disregarding the letters all together? I can't find anything speaking directly to this. Thanks

  • We have mixed text/number formatted products. In addition, some of our part numbers convert to dates…I hate Microsoft for that "feature."

    Examples: 101, 7-2009, 5044A.

    So, if I test if it's a number, I can convert that to text or the other way around. If the text is also a date (7-2009), Excel auto-converts to a number like 39995.

    Any ideas? Is there a way to test if a value might become a date and keep it as is?

    jjmoonie July 20, 2020 5:46 am Reply
  • Doug

    Finally after having this problem on pivot table, with your advice I fix it

    1.-Have pivot table, that when refresh it changes automaticaly to dates,(but it’s invoice number
    2.In the data base where it gets its information
    a)import the information
    b) but with invoice numbers sometimes its just numbers and in other cases it has letters and numbers

    when I refresh it, the pivot tables, gets confuse and formats as dates (automatically)

    with you advice Text to column , its fix ,after years investigating

    thank you

  • In Google Sheets, how do I format a currency amount to show the cents (digits after the decimal point) ONLY if there are more than 0 cents? For example, if the amount is $20, I want it to show "$20", (and NOT "$20.00") and if the amount is $20.10, THEN I want it to show "$20.10". In other words, round it only if there are no cents.

  • If you have a value prefixing the string number you want to convert, rather find and replace it with nothing Crtl +h , or when you are spitting the data with the text to columns, split the values with that character that does not belong to the number. Hope this helps anyone!
