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 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?

If the string were located in Cell A1, you could use the code

=RIGHT(A1,LEN(A1)-SEARCH("-",A1,1) - 1)
A1 is the string, the rest is the length of the text.
To get the length it searches for the hyphen and subtracts that from the length of A1.

Hello All,

I'm using Excel 2003 at work (yes I know it's an old version )

I have the following formula:

=SUMPRODUCT(('ABC''s 2011'!$D$2:$D$194>=DATEVALUE("1/7/2011"))*('ABC''s 2011'!$D$2:$D$194<=DATEVALUE("31/7/2011"))*('ABC''s 2011'!$C$2:$C$194="Ilkeston"))

Basically it looks at a sheet in a workbook and pulls out the number of times 'Ilkeston' appears during 1/7/2011-31/7/2011. Which is fine however I now also want it to exclude the data which also includes 'Not signed'
I was thinking of adding the following -COUNT('ABC''s 2011'!$E$2:$E$194<>"Not signed") But I realise that this will exclude all of the data that includes 'Not signed' and won't just restrict it to the month of July.

Is there a better way of expressing this in a formula? If you have any questions or need anything clarifying please do get in touch.

Thank you in advance

i've read all the help files and even some websupport pages and can't figure this out!! i need to take the numbers i enter into certain cells and add 40% + 100 eg. cell C1 is $520 then I need it to do this 520+40%+100 each and every cell has a different number in it to start with. i'm an idiot so please dont get to tech on me

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

Attention Excel Gurus,

I had a formula once that searched through a range of text and if it found a duplicate it marked the cell 0 if it was the first or only occurence of the value it returned a 1. it looked something like =IF(a1, A1:A2 = a1,1,0) But that is not it. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?



A:Looking for Excel Formula

Hi JHorsley,

Do you mean looking for duplicates in a column of text?

Say you have a list of Names down column A,
the following in say cell B2 copied down column B will display "Dup" or "Not Dup" alonside each name in Column A depending on if thet Name exists above it or not.

Replace "Dup" or "Not Dup" to suit .
=IF(COUNTIF(A$1:A2,A2)>1,"Dup","Not Dup")


Note: no formula in B1 as there is nothing above A1.
Note as you copy the formula down col B, the range will change to include upto that row but the $1 will ensure it always starts from the top.

I currently have a formula that takes the current day, and compares to an Order Picked date.

The formula calculates is the difference between the dates is more than 2.5, "Overdue" is returned in the cell

The problem I encounter is on Mondays and Tuesdays, where I need to change the formula manually to 4.5 and 3.5
because the Sat and Sunday are not skipped and no orders are sent as those are off days. So an order picked on Friday
would show as Overdue on Monday as it is more than 2.5 days.

Original Formula : =IF((A2+2.5)<$C$3,"Overdue",IF((A2)>$C$3,"Future",""))

The new Formula: =IF(AND($D$3=”Monday”,A2+4.5<$C$3),”Overdue”, IF(AND($D$3=”Tuesday”,A2+3.5<$C$3),”Overdue”, IF((A2+2.5)<$C$3,"Overdue",IF((A2)>$C$3,"Future",""))))

has not worked. Perhaps wrongly positioned parenthesis? It returns #NAME#

I have created a spread sheet to compare 2004 figures with 2005 figures -- with the results showing increase/decrease percentage.

The variance (column N & O) is set up to give me percentage amounts.
Sometimes the percentages are under 999% & some are well over 1000% --
which is fine -- that formula is working fine, but I want it to do more.

Here is what I want ........ if the % amount is over 1000% -- I just want
the cell to read "+1000%"... if it's under 1000%, I want it to read the
true value, whatever that might be between 1% up to 999%, because
sometimes the values are so large -- they just look stupid (ie 1670000%)--
just want to simplify it a little.

Here is the formula I tried: of course it doesn't work!! If it is over 1000% it reads +1000%, but if it is under - it reads FALSE instead of the true value.

=IF(L27/J27>=1000,"+ 1000%"),(IF((L27/J27<999,sum((L27/J27))

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:
=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.

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

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.

Cheers guys

Hi guys/gals,

I'm looking for the formula on my spreadsheet to give out a value and if there is no value, display N/A as the output. So for example =E2-D2 is already in the cell and gives me what i want however when there is no value in E2 i would like it to display N/A instead of #Value. The 2 cells for the formula are set up as date/time but occassionally letters may be in these cells instead. Ive probably made that sound complicated. Excel newbie sorry.

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.

A more general approach uses the ISERROR function to return "N/A" if any kind of error is found for E2-D2.

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.

Haven't got the time to help, but I seriously suggest that you read up on advanced filter


I have put the link to Excel 2003, but all the Excel versions have Advanced Filter. Excel 2007 has it as well.

I am new to this and very inexperienced in Microsoft Excel. I am trying to create a formula that would do the following. I am using Office 2003 professional and do not even know if this is possible.

IF cell C14 equals more than 1395000 but less than 1520000 then multiply cell C14 by 25%

If that can be done and anyone knows how to do it, I would be extremely grateful for the answer.

Welcome to the board.


(you don't specify what should happen if C14 is outside the range )
