Excel 2013 - how to keep a formula consisten

Q: Excel 2013 - how to keep a formula consisten


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 -

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'm new here so I hope this site will be helpful!

I have a sample Excel spreadsheet report attached.

In it, I have 2 tables. What I need is to copy data from Table 2 and fill in the missing blanks in Table 1. The Company Name and Email must be grouped to the name so the 'Name' in table one must have the same email and company name as in the 'Name' in Table 2.

Some of the 'Names' are the same in the tables, some names aren't there, and some names are extra. The names that aren't there must have their email and company name empty, but still need to be there at the final product. Would really appreciate some help.

I then proceeded to use the SUMIF function but that only works for numbers,


I had grouped the emails and company names to the Names in column two.

I tried to use the SUMIF function, in the case of the attached file, =SUMIF(H:H,A:A,G:G) but it did not work.

I then tried converting the words into numbers but was unsuccessful,

I would appreciate any help.

I am currently using the following Excel formula in cell K2 to calculate and display the average of the lowest two values in the range G2 to J2.


The formula works fine, but I now want it to ignore blank cells, so that if only one value is present in the range (it will be the value already in G2 from a previous season) it will display that value in K2 in the absence of data in H2,I2 and J2. However, I still want the averaging function of the current formula to happen once cells H2 to J2 start having data added.

I would be grateful for any help or hints as to how to proceed.

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.

Hey there, I have a question if this is possible to do on an excel formula. I have attached a copy of the spreadsheet that I am working with.

It is for sales tracking and trying to make a certain amount of sales per day. Basically what I would like it to do is to change the Daily Target amount for the days after and be based on a monthly total that updates as the month progresses and not to change the days prior. I dont know if this makes sense. I'll try an example..

Day 1 - Sales $500 Daily Target of $450
Day 2 - Sales $600 Daily Target of $550
Day 3 - Sales $50 Daily Target of $700

Total: $1150 Goal: $5000

Now as day 4 comes, you put in your sales amount for the days to come...the way I have done the spreadsheet the daily target lowers for the entire month....So day 1's target lowers and day 2's and so on and so forth, I wish it to not change the prior days numbers only the ones that are to come...Is there a way to lock the previous days when you move on to the next day with a if/then statement perhaps? or because of the way I have done the spreadsheet referring to a changing number it will change the prior days no matter what.

Hope this makes sense, any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Would be grateful for advice on what formula to use for the below.

I am trying to find out the average number of days for each job type completed (i.e. the average number of days for job types emergency, urgent & routine that have been completed). How do I write the conditional statement to do this (assuming that this can be done).
What formula do I use to get a combined average number of days to complete jobs for all completed job types (Emergency, urgent & routine).
Each job type has a target for completion, Emergency has a target date of 3 days for completion, urgent has a target date of 7 days for completion and routine has a target date of 28 days for completion. I would like to count the number of job types that were completed within target. In the example below, two of the routines were completed within target of 28 days, the data for this is the number of days to complete job is caluclated from the date received/date completed. Again, how do I do this.
I have attached the file that relates to the above.
Many thanks in advance

A:Excel Formula

Hi Kets23,

I've updated your workbook with two techniques.

1 & 2. To get the averages, easiest is to use Pivot Table - needs to be refreshed whenever you change data in the source.
This shows you the averages per Job Type and the overall average.

3. I've used an array formula (needs to be entered with Ctrl + Shift + Enter) to count how many jobs hit target.

I also named the ranges so make the formulas more understandable.
Removed two blank columns to aid the Pivot Table.

Suggest you use HELP to get info on the above techniques.

I need help setting up a new formula to auto populate a field with a specific drop down list based upon an initial selection from a drop down list.....if that makes any sense.


Column A has a drop down list of 10 items (lets call them 1-10 for this), I have it set so that when any of these options is selected a 'Cost Price' (column B) box auto populates from a master template sheet, and this formula working fine now.

I now want to add a colour section 'column C' which is also a drop down list based on the selection made in column A but depending on the item depends on the colour available.

E.g Column A, drop down options 1-5 have 5 different colour options from a drop down list, Options 6+7 have 3 colour options, 8+9 have one colour option and option 10 has 2 colour options.

I have saved lists for individual items and presume it will be the VLOOKUP command but it's about there I grind to a halt.
Think thats about as well as I can explain at the moment, if required I can post an example document to display exactly how it looks.

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.

A:a formula in excel

I'll try to explain this as best I can

(using your own example)
C1 = 520
and you want say D1 to provide the total of C1+40% + 100
in cell D1 you would type:
just like that. and the total now in D1 should be 828.

then let's say the rest of your numbers are in the C column from C2 through C24 for example.
highlight D1 through D24 and in the Edit menu, select Fill > Fill down and voila you have all the numbers done!

I am assuming a few things here. so if you're doing it in row (across) then you'll have to Fill left or right (depending on where you typed in your original formula.
either way you should only have to type the formula once. I tried it out myself and it worked just fine.

if this doesn't help you out just post back here, and I'm sure someone else can provide you with more help. they're pretty great here

If cell A1 is equal to 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42, 48, (you see that the pattern here is increments of 6) then I want it to ADD 1 to cell A2 if not then I want it to look up the number listed in column B and give me the corresponding name in column C.

Is there anyone who can help me - it's driving me crazy!

Thank you sooo much!

Can anyone help me with the following problem,

I have an Excel 2000 spreadsheet with 7000 rows showing when a user connects or disconnects. The first column shows date in the following format “dd/mm/yyyy” and the second column shows when the user connected in the format “hh:mm” and then the third column shows when they disconnect in the same format. Finally the fourth column shows the length they were connected I need to create a time line for a complete month in intervals of every minute to show how many users are connected at any point in time over that month. . I am going to create the time line across the top of the page but I am getting stuck on the formula to compare the information and report back a valid number. If any one could help me with this It would be greatly appreciated.
