I have the following routines deleting leading zeros for some reason...

I NEED TO KEEP my leading zeros

Sub ConvertCase()

Dim rAcells As Range, rLoopCells As Range

Dim lReply As Long



    'Set variable to needed cells

    If Selection.Cells.count = 1 Then

        Set rAcells = ActiveSheet.UsedRange

    Else

       Set rAcells = Selection

    End If





    On Error Resume Next 'In case of NO text constants.

    'Set variable to all text constants

    Set rAcells = rAcells.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants, xlTextValues)

   

    If rAcells Is Nothing Then

       On Error GoTo 0

       Exit Sub

    End If

         

            For Each rLoopCells In rAcells

              rLoopCells = StrConv(rLoopCells, vbUpperCase)

          Next rLoopCells

 End Sub


Sub convertupper()
    Dim rng As Range, cell As Range
    Dim lrow As Long

    lrow = Cells(Cells.Rows.count, "I").End(xlUp).Row

    Set rng = Range("I1:I" & lrow)

    For Each cell In rng
        cell.Value = UCase(cell.Value)
    Next cell

End Sub

In Sub ConvertCase() change rLoopCells = StrConv(rLoopCells, vbUpperCase) to
If Not IsNumeric(rLoopCells) Then
     rLoopCells = StrConv(rLoopCells, vbUpperCase)
End If

Open in new window

In Sub convertupper() change cell.Value = UCase(cell.Value) to
If Not IsNumeric(cell.Value) Then
     cell.Value = UCase(cell.Value)
End If

Open in new window

This should make sure that cells with numbers are left alone. Another option is to insert a ' in front of the number if it contains leading zeros. This can done like this
If IsNumeric(cell.Value) And Left(cell.Value, 1) = "0" Then
    cell.Value = Chr(39) & UCase(cell.Value)
Else
    cell.Value = UCase(cell.Value)
End If
