# Accumulate Value In A Single Cell

## I will try explain what I want to calculate but cannot find the way. I want to calculate a result from two digits, then remember the result and add to this sum next digit typing in the same cell. Example: colum A names colum B numbers In cell B1 I will write 5, after enter result in B1 is 5. In cell B1 again write 7 result in B1 is 12. In cell B1 again write 6 result in B1 is 18....and so on.

If Statement To Accumulate An Amount In A Cell
In a cell I have a description, say "FOOD" then another cell with amount say £2, then in another cell I want it to be looking and if it sees "FOOD" entered, it takes the amount £2 and adds it to a running balance.

Cell A1 = Food
Cell B1 = £2

Cell H1 = (looks and if Food) adds £2 to cell

Accumulate Everyday Using The Same Cell For Input
I need a formula or script that accumulates data that a person enters into a particular cell.

[INPUT] a6=enter service requests closed today
[OUTPUT] b6=Service requests closed last month
[OUTPUT] c6=Service requests closed this month

I want to make this as simple as possible and the person enters her data in the same cell every day (a6). The script or formula should (in the background) then take todays total and and add it to the accumulated total and show the outputs in b6 and c6.

If a person enters data multiple times on any given day, the script or formula should recognize only the last entered number for that day. This will control user errors in entering.

I thought about just entering the raw data in a separate spreadseet and using 1 cell for each day, but then a person would have to enter totals on one sheet and look at the results on another seet. not good

I also thought about taking the above solution and combining them on one sheet. this would work, I guess, but I really need a sleek lean sheet that they add to the same cell each day.Also there is additional data that I still need to show on the screen and I really hope I do not need to move this data.

Accumulate The Hours For An Invoice Period And Job Code Combination
My problem is that I have a worksheet tab (RawTimeSheetData) which contains a whole series of week/timecode values for a range of people.

I want to accumulate the hours for an invoice period / job code combination. As an example in the tab InvoicePeriodSummaryTimes cell D6 i want to sum all the hours from RawTimeSheetData where both cells A6 & B6 from InvoicePeriod tab = cells D6 & E6 from the rawdata tab.

Lookup Multiple Values In A Single Cell (separated By Commas) And Then Return The Values To A Single Cell (also Comma Separated)
If I have, in one cell (call it D1):

A B
1 ED T
2 EH F
3 DR G
4 HU H
5 SE E
6 YU E

I need to be able to lookup the values in D1 on the table and return the values in column B to a single cell (say E1), also comma separated...

Find Multiple Instances Of Single Criterion In Row & Return To A Single Col
Find Multiple instances of Numeric Criterion in Row & Return To a Single
Column.

I have a Dynamic Named Range "Data" spanning 10 Columns and many Rows.
Each Row may contain duplicates of the Numeric Criterion.

I would like to find ALL instances of a specific Numeric Criterion across
each single Row in the Dynamic Range "Data" and have the Results returned to
a New Sheet in a single column.

NEW Sheet:
The Numeric Criterion is housed in G5.
The matched criterion should be returned to the New Sheet starting at G7.
Duplicate instances in the same Row should ALL be returned to the same cell
in Column G on the New Sheet.

Sample Data Layout:
Columns I J K L M N O P Q R
Row No.76 1 0 1 1 0 1 1 1 0 1
Row No.77 2 2 3 2 1 2 2 0 0 0
Row No.78 3 3 3 3 3 0 3 0 3 0

Scenario:
Looking for Numeric Criterion 1 (one).

Expected Results - New Sheet:
Row No.7 Column G (Cell G7) 1111111
Row No.8 Column G (Cell G8) 1

In Row 76 of the Sample Data ALL seven Numeric Criterion of 1 (one) should be
returned to the same cell G7.
In Row 77 of the Sample Data there is only one Numeric Criterion of 1 and it
should be returned to cell G8.

Search For Each ID In Single Cell & Return Corresponding Cell
to search for specific text in a cell but not just one word or letter, in fact it could be many. I need to first verify that the exact texts exist in a table and then match the various text instances with corresponding data in that table.

At the moment, this works to search for one type of text and verify it's exsistence in the able and indeed return the corresponding value, but i need it to do it for all verified texts

Put Both Text And Cell Value From Another Sheet In A Single Cell..
I'm trying to put both text and cell value from another sheet in a single cell.

I've tried:
='sheet'!cell"text"
Doesn't work.

Also, I understand this is somehow it's supposed to be done

But I need the cell data to be from another sheet and also I need the text to succeed the cell value.

Going by the above example, I tried:

Is there a way to count how many times a value is changed?

Cell A1 can be either “YES” or “NO”. Its' value is controlled by validation…

Get A Single Cell To Look At An Array
What I’m trying to do is get a single cell to look at an array, if there is a number in that array which is between 2 limits to return that number. This is eventually going to work with limits of dates/times, and have to be updated once a day. I’ve attached a workbook with an example of the data and the way I want it formatted. {=IF(AND(A1:A25>=D32,A1:A25<E32),A1:A25,"")}

But this always returns a false. I can get it to work without using array and just having cell to cell logic but this means I would need the same amount of columns in the formatted data as the raw which is impractical.

Adding Numbers In A Single Cell
What is the function to add numbers in a single cell to show only a single number. I know it can be done but do not know the quick function to do it.

Using A Single Cell For Data Entry
Basicaly what I am trying to accomplish is the use of a single cell to enter the values 1 thru 60, so starting at e2 for instance, if I enter the number 1 then cell f2 will populate with a 1, if I were to enter the number 18 then the cell w2 would populate with an 18. So the range of cells that need to populate in this example would be (f2:BM2) for row 2. Furthermore if I were to enter a -1 or a -18 in cell e2 then those numbers would be eliminated from the appropriate cells on row 2. The next 299 rows would need to perform the same way for a total of 300 user input rows.

The way that I'm imagining e2 would behave in the example would be...type a 1 then enter....18 then enter....31 then enter and so on. Columns f thru bm would locked and unselectable....so a tab should send me back to a3.

Reasoning.... this is a simple scoring system based on 60 codes and data integrity is very important and I want to eliminate as much human error as possible. I will be setting autofilters and such later on.

I am attaching a screencapture as well.

Search Specific Value In Single Cell
I have a code which can search a column of data and register if any of the cells are equal to eg. "LOMM" or another given shortname.

But sometimes the cell that i want to compare to "LOMM" contains multiple shortnames. (eg. "LOMM, GIV, ANDHE").

In such a case I cannot use the if cells(i, y) = "LOMM" then...

I need an "if"-statement which can identify LOMM in a cell containing multiple shortnames.

String Separating Single Cell
I am trying to write a simple code for some project management/scheduling spreadsheet in my office. We have projects with multiple people working at one time.

I store all names in an array and compare those values to the cells containing the various names. It works when only one person is named, i.e. only [CR], but with multiple people, it doesn't read the data, i.e. [CR, NS, MR], that is separated by commas.

Is there a command to recognize the first two characters and compare them to something, then characters, 5&6, and 9&10, so forth....?

I tried to use the with characters command that help says will take the "3rd character space and make the font bold" but it doesn't recognize my inequality.

Validation List From A Single Cell
First, I have read through the board, and I was not able to find a solution already posted. I apologize if in fact this is a duplicate.

Second, I am comfortable with dynamic lists, dynamic ranges, chained validation lists, etc: so I am pretty sure my question is not a repeat of the other recent validation list questions.

Therefore:

Is it possible to generate a validation list from a single cell with a comma separated list?

For example, if I have “Fresh, Cool, Hot, Neutral, Smooth” in given cell, can I then have those 5 items appear as separate choices in a validation list?

I have tried every combination I could think of using arrays, named lists, the INDIRECT function, etc. I cannot seem to get it to recognize them as separate items. For the moment, I have created a bad (too long/complex) workaround where formulas are used to pull out each of the 5 strings into individual cells.

Single Cell In A Named Range
I have a large amounts of named ranges each of about 100 rows 20 column's each in its own sheet and I need to be able to refer to a singe cell in that range.

I want to do this so that I can use an offset to get another cell value relative to the cell in the named range.

F9 contains a hyperlink to the named range and is the same as the named range but with spaces.

A couple of things that I have tried are below:

=OFFSET(INDIRECT(SUBSTITUTE(\$F9," ","_")),1,0)

=OFFSET(VLOOKUP("bob",INDIRECT(SUBSTITUTE(\$F9," ","_")),14,FALSE),1,0)

Neither of these work, I am asuming it is because I dont have a specific cell reference named for the offset?

Fill Cell With Single Character
I would like to enter an X or O into a square cell so that it completely fills the cell.

I want to eliminate the space between the text character and the cell border.

The character does not necessarily have to be text so long as it can be automatically entered into the cell by a macro and can also be deleted by a sub routine to refresh the worksheet for new data.

I created autoshapes for a cross and a circle but I have no idea how to substitute these for the text characters in the worksheet or delete them afterwards.

Sumif Off Of A Single Cell Range
I want the numbers to give me a sum total if a cell that is not in the row contains an "x". Row of number from A1:A5 each cell has the number 1 in the cell. if there is a x in cell A2 i would like to get the sum of the numbers in A1:A5 in cell A3.

was trying =SUMIF(A2,"x",A1:E1) this is the formula in cell A3

I am expecting the result of 5, this formula returns the value of 1 since there is only 1 x in cell A2.

Plot A Graph From One Single Cell
I need to know, can I plot a graph (ongoing plotting each value) from just ONE single cell which constantly updates it's value? (I have a third party datafeed hooked up to one single cell in Excel 2000 [yes, the old one ] and it updates quickly in realtime automatically throughout the day). But I need to trace the history of the values, plot a graph of all the values which ever show up in that single, in other words.

Also, I need to date and time stamp each new plot on the X axis of the graph (only when a new figure appears in the cell). So, for example, my one and only "datacell" (say, A1!) which is linked to an external datafeed is showing "145.87541" at 12:30:45 on 27/04/05. I need that time and date on the X axis which the number as the plot. Then that cell changes value 2 seconds later to "145.87587" at 12:30:47 on 27/04/05. Now I need that second plot on the graph at the correct time/date stamp so I am constantly plotting the history of the value onwards (potentially forever!) using just that one, automatically updating, cell.

Scanning Range Instead Of Single Cell

For testing, step 1. Select M+R in Col "TOI", enter some value in the pop up. step 2. Again select M+R in "TOI", enter some value in the pop up. the Col F will have some additions (e.g 1+2), for which I need the result in the corresponding next column. i.e col G.

Define Single Cell Range
I'm having trouble assigning a range of a single cell using vba. I'm doing this to create charts. Here's the sub containing the problem

Do While Match = False
If Sheets("Graph Data").Cells(1, i) = ReportTargetBox.value Then
Match = True

This msg box :MsgBox ("Cell Value = " & Sheets("Graph Data").Cells(2, i).value) is working and returning the correct value.

Coply Multiple Lines Into Single Cell
I have a table in word that I'm trying to copy into excel.

The problem is one of the columns in the row in that table may have multiple lines with hard returns.

When I copy and paste into excel, the result gives me multiple lines. I want a single line, with the exact multiple text in a single cell. How can I do this?? Nobody in the world seems to know.

To try this set up a word table with a single row, 3 columns. In the 3rd column put the following value.

Value 1
Value 2
Value 3

Now copy the entire row and attempt to past into excel. Watch as it creates 3 rows.

Keeping A Running Total In A Single Cell
Is it possible to have numbers added to the same cell and have excel continue to calculate the addition for me in that same cell......ex: I have the number 8 in cell d2 and I want to add the number 8 to that cell and have excel add the 8 to the previous 8 for a total of 16 in the same cell.....the next time I would add 5, and the total would be 21? Can this be done in a single cell?

Extracting Postcode Ranges To A Single Cell
I have a very large spread sheet of about 20,000 rows. I need to output to a cell postcode ranges based on the Zone. Not all the numbers in the postcode zones are consecutive.

For the example below, the output cell for the DWN range would display like this: 0800-0801, 0804, 0810-0813

Each output cell postal range must be specific to each zone.

Postcode Zone 0200 CBA 0200 CBA 0221 CBA 0800 DWN 0800 DWN 0801 DWN 0804 DWN 0810 DWN 0810 DWN 0810 DWN 0810 DWN 0810 DWN 0810 DWN 0810 DWN 0810 DWN 0811 DWN 0812 DWN 0812 DWN 0813 DWN

Is there anyway to do this without manually doing it? I would like to tell you I've tried this and that but I've never done anything like this before so I really don't know where to start.

Indentify Value From Multiple Values In A Single Cell
I am looking to produce a formula that shows if a number is "found" or "not
found".

I have list of over 1000 numbers in one column (1 number per row) . I am
trying to identify if those values are present in a range of numbers from
another worksheet(also in a single column). My challenge is that the range of
numbers that I am looking in has multiple values, separated by commas in a
single cell. Looks like it was from an Access data dump.

Combining Fixed Text In A Single Cell
I have about 20 choices I'd like a user to select from and have the text output to a single cell.

Just create a Data Validation List? Yeah, but that only allows you to select ONE of the items in the list -- I want to select as few as zero and as many as all 20, combining the resulting text into a single string - space or comma delimited.

My first thought was checkboxes, but all I can seem to figure out is how to get ONE of the results into the cell, meaning I'm better off with the Data Validation List because it's easier.

Especially since I need to repeat this for as many as 200 or 300 lines,

This macro uses the Find_Range function to find each ID within the matrix and return the column header where the ID was first located.
There is also a line which return a list of ranges, indicating all the places where the ID was found.

What I want is to convert the list of ranges into a list of corresponding column headers (ie row 1 of all columns in the range)
