# Numbers in format

Hello all

I would like to transfer every value from my column 1 of my MSHFlexgrid1 in my text1 but in a specific format.

Ex:

Collumn 1 of my grid
123456
321654
456789
987654
963852

In my Text1, i would have the result:
Text1 = ('123456','321654','456789','987654','963852')

How can i do that?

This is what i have for now:

``````Dim s As String
Dim i As Long, j As Long, n As Long
For n = 1 To MSHFlexGrid1.Rows - 1

If MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(n, 1) <> "" Then

s = MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(n, 1) & "/" & MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(n, 1)

Text1 = s

End If
Next
``````

Try with this

Dim s As String
Dim i As Long, j As Long, n As Long
s = "('"

For n = 1 To MSHFlexGrid1.Rows - 1
If MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(n, 1) <> "" Then
s = s & "','" & MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(n, 1)
End If
Next
s = s & "')"

Text1 = s

Is this what you mean?

``````Dim s As String
Dim i As Long, j As Long, n As Long
For n = 1 To MSHFlexGrid1.Rows - 1
If MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(n, 1) <> "" Then
If Len(s) > 0 Then
s = s + ","
End If
s = s + MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(n, 1)
End If
Next

Text1 = s
``````

Oops forgot a part of the format:
``````Dim s As String
Dim i As Long, j As Long, n As Long
For n = 1 To MSHFlexGrid1.Rows - 1
If MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(n, 1) <> "" Then
If Len(s) > 0 Then
s = s + ","
End If
s = s + "'" + MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(n, 1) + "'"
End If
Next

Text1 = "(" + s + ")"
``````

Hello santhimurthyd

I was getting an extra ",  before the value.

Ironhoofs, that code is very good :

``````Dim s As String
Dim i As Long, j As Long, n As Long
For n = 1 To MSHFlexGrid1.Rows - 1
If MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(n, 1) <> "" Then
If Len(s) > 0 Then
s = s + ","
End If
s = s + "'" + MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(n, 1) + "'"
End If
Next

Text1 = "(" + s + ")"
``````

Let me try one last test

Corrected code

Dim s As String
Dim i As Long, j As Long, n As Long
s = "('"

For n = 1 To MSHFlexGrid1.Rows - 1
If MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(n, 1) <> "" Then
If Len(s) == 2 Then
s = MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(n, 1)
Else
s = s & "','" & MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(n, 1)
End If
End If
Next
s = s & "')"

Hello all

Ok, after many test, i'm having the best solution with this code:
Dim s As String
Dim i As Long, j As Long, n As Long
For n = 1 To MSHFlexGrid1.Rows - 1
If MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(n, 1) <> "" Then
If Len(s) > 0 Then
s = s + ","
End If
s = s + "'" + MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(n, 1) + "'"
End If
Next

Text1 = "(" + s + ")"

Thanks again to all for your help.
