Dear Experts:

On the active worksheet I would like to search for ALL numeric values (even if they have been entered as text) and apply the following format: NumberFormat '0.0', ie. format all numeric values as numbers with one decimal place.  

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas

Try this,

Thomas
Sub agdsagds()
Dim cl As Range

Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
Application.DisplayAlerts = False


For Each cl In ActiveSheet.UsedRange.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants)
    If IsNumeric(cl) Then
        cl.NumberFormat = "0.0"
        cl.Value = CDbl(cl.Value)
    End If
Next

Application.ScreenUpdating = True
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic
Application.DisplayAlerts = True

End Sub

Open in new window

Hi Thomas,

great, thank you very much for your professional help. One more thing, how would this macro to be tweaked if not the used range would be used but a workbook level scope name, named 'MyRange'

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

You'd replace

For Each cl In ActiveSheet.UsedRange.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants)

by

For Each cl In activeworkbook.range("MyRange").SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants)
