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.

Preferred Solution: Excel 2013 - how to keep a formula consisten

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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.

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.

Hi,

I need some urgent help regarding the IF formula.

I have a master sheet, from which i want to search data into a second sheet if certain conditions apply.
The master sheet - is the sheet where all the data is input with project numbers, and from there each project has its own page, unto which the data that coincide with each project number is supposed to be transfered.

I have used the following formula:

=IF(Sheet1!$D$9:$D$112=B2,Sheet1!$B$9:$B$112,)
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??

Thanks for any help on this!

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.

Hey all,

I'm new here, so this may be a simple fix...

anyways, I was wondering how to adjust an excel document to expand a formula when you add a row?

Currently, I have used the COUNTA formula to count the number of occurrences in some cells. In the future I know that there are going to be new rows added. Now these won't be counted but they need to be...

Is there anyway to extend the COUNTA formula automatically?

A little background on the list.

So there are 14 names. And then six column headings with various topics. One of which is "Pay Period Missed" I need to be able to count the number of pay periods missed, per name (not all of the names have the same amount of pay periods missed). Currently I use the COUNTA formula, but this will become tricky once more Pay Periods are added next to the name...

Hi, welcome to the forum.
I think posting a sample file without sensitive data will help to explain what you want and it's good practice to also mention the version of Excel you're using.
I guess that what you want can be solved by means of a formula, but it's also possible that a macro will make it even simpler since it overcomes the problem of formula's being deleted by accident.

RELEVANCY SCORE 50.4

I have a list of figures, inlcuding minus figures and I am having difficulty coming up with a formula to do what I want to do. What I want is to have a formula, which checks a column of figures "A" and if an amount is 0 or negative, then put the amount in a new column, "B".

Thanks in advance.

Hi Fergus,

In Column B (cell B1 in this example), type:

=IF(A1<=0,A1,"")

The double quotes is just to ensure nothing is written to cell B1 if A1 is above zero.

I am trying to create a formula that will do the following:

IF(H3="M" or "R", "Done")

I don't know how to tell excel I want the statement to be true if H3 is equal to M or R without creating two if statements. Any ideas?

Thanks

try this

=IF(OR(A6="M",A6="H"),"Done",0)

If you Don't wish it to show 0 for none M or H values, go to Tools | Options | View Tab, uncheck Zero Values in the Window Options section

Hello,

Just wondering if anyone can help with probably simple formula, I'm just not that good on excel.

I have a spreadsheet that in the first tab (call it x) has 2 colums for example name and phone number.
On the second tab (call it Y) it also has 2 colums for example name and DOB.
I would like to make a formula on colum 3, on X, that if the name matches the name on Y it will show the DOB.

Is this possible

Thanks

Look into the vlookup function. V stands for vertical. So basically it looks vertically through a list. This is the format of it.

=vlookup(value to lookup,where to lookup the value, what column should be the end result, set this last section to false for your lookup since you want to look for an exact value isntead of a range)
