Excel 2013 - how to keep a formula consisten

Q: Excel 2013 - how to keep a formula consisten

Hi

I am trying to tie one cell into a formula that is being pasted into multiple rows.
I know you can use $ to keep the cell consistent but it doesn't seem to be working.

So if the value is in c9 and then first row gets c9 then the new row gets c10 etc... I need it to be c9 throughout the column.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

A: Excel 2013 - how to keep a formula consisten

You use $C9 to keep the column consistent, C$9 to keep the row consistent and $C$9 to keep the cell consistent. Are you doing that and it's not working?

Hi ~

I'm working on a financial formula, trying to calculate a growth rate for a row of cells. The problem is that not all rows have complete data sets, so the formula picks up blank cells and returns a #DIV/0! error.

The existing formula works fine for those rows that have non-zero entries in all cells, and I *can* manually adjust the formula for the starting / ending cells in each row--but what a pain(!). As this spreadsheet grows larger, or the data sets change over time, it means I have to constantly keep adjusting it for every row of data involved, which is extremely time-consuming.

Here's an short example of what I might have in any given row:

A1 (blank), B1(blank), C1(blank), D1(.10), E1(.25), F1(.72), G1(1.0), H1(.80), I1(.60), J1(.75)--then in K1 is the growth formula, e.g. =((J1/A1)^(1/10)-1).

Is there ANY way to create a formula that will dynamically adjust for the blank cells that might exist across a row of data and let the formula do the calculation?

I'm new to advanced Excel topics, but any ideas would be MOST appreciated(!).

Thanks -

CP

If it's possible to do this, what is the formula syntax for an if/then formula in one sheet that refers to the cell value in another sheet in the same workbook?
For example in Sheet 2, the formula would be something like, if Cell A10 in Sheet 1 is greater than 0, then the value of Cell B20 in Sheet 2 would by "Yes" but it would be "No" if the valuein Cell A10 in Sheet 1 was less than 0.

Hi,

I am currently working in an excel file where I am having problems with the following formula:
=SUMPRODUCT(--('Forecast Detail'!$E$5:$E$9409='Data Dump'!$B3049),'Forecast Detail'!$J$5:$J$9409)

A little more background on the file I am working with:
- This is a rather large file that I've had to turn calculations on manual so that I am able to work in it without the calculations constantly going
- The data dump cell that it is referencing it to is a concatenation formula combining a cost center and a G/L account. This results in a 18 digit number.
- The forecast detail column E is also a concatenation formula of the same thing.
- The forecast detail column J is the real dollars for the month that goes through the various cost centers and G/L accounts.

I am then trying to pull all of the data that is in the forecast detail sheet that fits the criteria in my formula. However, there is a couple instances where it isn't matching the correct concatenation formula. Does anyone know how I could correct this or if there is a better formula to get the same result accomplished?

Thanks!

I am trying to design a form that will automatically search my excel sheet and extract and display rows of data that meet the criteria.

The data I have in my database contains numerous field with address and sales info, but the fields that I need to sort are by Name, date and price range.

On my input form I want to be able to specify a customers name (contained in the name field of my database - column A), I want to get sales within the last 90 days (from the date field in my database - column H and sales value with a certain range......say within $100 of an amount I specify, this would come from the sale value field - column F). I also only want the last 5 sales if there are more that fit within that date and price criteria.

Is there a formula that will seach my database, filter the columns by the above criteria and then display those data rows on my form......in cells/rows that I specify?

Currently I am manually filtering the fields to get the criteria and then copying and pasting onto the form. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Excel vat formula

Not sure exactly what you want, but hope this helps:

If £15.00 if the amount including VAT and you want to find what the net amount is (ie excluding VAT) then divide the amount by 117.5%:

+15/117.5% or put in sparate cells and create formula eg +A1/B1

If you want to find how much VAT is on £15.00 then multiple the amount by 117.5%:

+15*117.5% (or in cells would be +A1*B1)

Is this what you wanted?

My question is how do I input a formula into Office 2010 Excel that calculates set commission amounts ($100,$150,$200,&$250) for various dollar sales amounts?
I have been able to work it this far:
=IF(D4>2999,D4<4000)*("$200.00")
The part I need to know is how do I expand this formula to include the next level of commission pay off $250.00
How close am I?
=IF(D4>2999,D4<4000)*("$200.00") (D4>=4000)*("$250.00")
I am not sure how I join or add the brackets together.
I appreciate you help.
 

A:Excel Formula

use nested IFs

so

IF( test , true , false )

now to nest in the false section (you can also nest in true)

IF( test, true, IF(test, true, false) )

if you want to give the details , i can set up

=IF(D4>2999,D4<4000)*("$200.00")Click to expand...

not sure why thats works

I would also look at the structure of the data and you may avoid using the between

but for between use

AND( D4>2999,D4<4000)
as the test

but you can often start with the greatest value

IF( D4 > 4000, "4001+ commision calc", if(d4> 2999, "3000+ commision calc", if( d4>1000, "1001+ commision calc", "value for below or equal 1000")

if you want to include greater or =
>=

the tests are carried out in the order written
so if its false for >4000 - then the next test shows below 4001 but greater than 2999

12 nights or over with minimum purchase of 1500 to 1999 gallons-half fee, 2000 or more- no fee (less than 1500-full fee/per night)

So far I can get the first one, =IF(AND(B4<=5,E4<800),B2*B4,"0") but after that I am stuck. B2 is the $240.00, B4 is the number of nights and E4 is number of gallons purchased. If there is a better way, I am all ears.

Looks like MS deemed it unnecessary. The = sign button was "Edit Formula".

It's been replaced by the Insert Function (formerly known as Paste Function) button. If you want to 'edit a formula', you would just use the Insert Function button.
Additionally, when clicking the Insert Function button, a prefixing = sign automatically appears, defining it as a formula.

If you really wanted, you could add an = symbol to one of your toolbars - right-click toolbar area, Customize, on the Commands tab select Insert in the Categories pane and "=" Sign in the right pane...

I have used the following formula:

The formula works - but i have the problem that if D9 is the right project number, but then line D10 is another project number, then on sheet 2, the line D10 is empty.

I like the individual project sheets to be filled up on each line, so that there are no spaces in between.

Does my question make sense??

If your data is all contained in one range (no blank rows or columns in the master sheet), you should be looking at Data,Auto Filter.

It is very fast to filter your data to see what you need and if necessary you can copy the results to another sheet, whilst leaving the master sheet intact with all the data.

Thanks in advance for any replies.
 

A:Excel formula

The following formula for exactly what you requested uses the ISBLANK function as the logical_test parameter in an IF function.

Code:
=IF(ISBLANK(E2),"N/A",E2-D2)
A more general approach uses the ISERROR function to return "N/A" if any kind of error is found for E2-D2.

Code:
=IF(ISERROR(E2-D2),"N/A",E2-D2)

Need help with a formula in excel.

I want to be able to calculate surface area, say of a box, by inputting the volume of the box.

I can do it on a calculator, but I don't think excel supports the cube root function.

can anyone help???
 

A:Excel Formula

Welcome to TSG, Starfish

Cube rooting, although not directly supported, can be done using the POWER formula

=POWER(A1,1/3) (where A1 is the number to be cube rooted)

I am trying to find the formula to total up a sum between certain dates.

for example

In column A i have the dates
In column B i have the amounts paid in

I need to be able to click into a cell and use a formula to calculate the total amount in column B between certain dates in Column A.

EG: the amount paid in between 01/10/2007 and including 30/09/2008

i have tried the following but no sum comes out, =SUMIF(A:A,">01/10/2007and<30/09/2008",B:B)

Please Please can anyone help

A:Excel Formula

I am not a very experienced Excel persion but I believe the problem is that the "criteria" argument used in the SumIF function is unable to combine logical expressions like you are trying to do:

Can Do ">6/30/2007" and can do "<11/1/2007"

But Can't do ">6/30/2007 AND <11/1/2007" at the same time

For you particular problem there still is a solution that uses the SumIf function

Add up ALL of the payments and then, using SumIf, subtract off those that fall before the start date and those that fall after then ending date

So to add all the payments between (including) June 1 '07 and Sept 30 '07:
Good:
=sum(B1:Bn) - sumif(A1:An,"<6/1/2007",B1:Bn) - sumif (A1:An,">9/30/2007",B1:Bn)

Now if you think about this approach you see that it isn't really necessary to sum all the payments and subtract off both ends, you only need to sum all the payments that fall on or after the start date and then subtract off those that fall after the end date.

Better:
=sumif(A1:An,">5/31/2007",B1:Bn) - sumif (A1:An,">9/30/2007",B1Bn)

Hi all, bit of a newbie to this forum...

I am after some help finding a formula or vbscript or something that can run through a range of numbers in a column, and give me the highest difference between to cells...

ie...

12
13
17
9
15
18
8

As you can see the difference between 12 & 13 is 1, 13 & 17 is 4, 17 & 9 is 8, 9 & 15 is 6, 15 & 18 is 3, 18 & 8 is 10.

I need a formula that can do this, and in ONE cell, give me the HIGHEST difference. in my example the ONE cell answer would be 10 as 10 was the biggest difference.

IS this possible? if so I would be so grateful of your help.
Many thanks in advance...
Christian.

Hi,

Does anyone know how to formulate the following:

X figure multiplied by .105, then that sum issubtracted from origianl X figure

Is this possible?

Thanks
 

A:What is the formula for Excel

Welcome to TSG!

=SUM(A1-(A1*0.105))

paste this function in cell B1 when the number you will input is in cell A1

You can then copy cell B1 and paste the function in B2-B??) and the values will change correspondingly to
=SUM(A2-(A2*0.105))
=SUM(A3-(A3*0.105))
etc

I have a spreadsheet which has results in columns.

Column A has the name of runners in the event, column B has where they finished (WON, 2nd, 3rd, etc). In column X I want to list the winner of the event for all runners except the winner.

Is there a formula that will do this for me.

The formula would need to be something like:

If column B =WON, then leave column X blank, if column B=(anything other than WON) find next record above where column B=WON and paste column A of that record into column X of this record.

I know that is not very well explained, but i have lots of records of races usually with 8 runners in each and against all that didnt win, I want to put the winners name in column X.
