Nov 10, 2013

If I have a drop down list created that contains each state, is there a way to correlate a value (%) when that state is selected that would be able to be used in formulas created in other cells in that row? And how would I go about creating that?

## Pivot Table: Adding A Percentage Field As '% Of Subtotal'

Nov 21, 2007

In the attached Excel file, there is a pivot table.

In the Data part of the table, there are two columns. The second is the exact same field than the first one but expressed as percentage (Field settings/Options/Show field as "% of" + "Total".

The problem is: I don't want to express this field as a % of Total ('Grand total') but rather as a % of Subtotal (e.g. Danemark Total).

I am trying to add columns to my Excel 2010 Pivot Table to calculate % change of sales from year to year. The field name is "Year", while the item columns in the field are 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011. How do I add a column between the years that will calculate the % change os sales up or down from the previous year?

## Adding Dim'd Variables: Ignoring Strings & Adding Number

Jan 13, 2007

I've got a problem involving several Dim'd Variables needing to be added up, they're all Dim'd as Variants though as they can be either strings or numbers at any time.

I need a formula (VBA) to add them up (to add their actual numeric values - not just a "1" if they contain a number) and ignore them all together if they contain string values.

## Percentage Number Formatting

Feb 21, 2013

I am trying to figure out why my number will not format correctly... I have a number thats value is pulled in via external data that gets updated everyday.

Everything works fine there, but I needed the format of that number that was pulled in to have parenthesis around it...

I know that one can add the parenthesis to the number by using the ="("&(Number)&")" function...

What the problem is is that when I add the parenthesis to the number it will not allow me to view it as a percentage; it will leave it as a full general number (Ex. (0.0006), instead of (0.06%)

Is there a way to get the percentage number format back?

## Cell Containing Number And A Percentage

Jun 26, 2006

Is there any way to make a cell display both a raw number and a parenthetical representing a percentage based on a formula? I know this may sound strange.

Examples:

9 (25%)
12 (39%)

I could get it done via merging or =_&_ style entries, I know, but is there any other way?

## Find Percentage IF Number Present

Feb 2, 2009

I have a spreadsheet with 6 sheets. There are 3 sheets that have information regarding the soil, geology and drift deposits of an area. The other 3 sheets relate to these sheets to display the information for each area. The way that the spreadhseet is set out pretty much explains what i am trying to archive. Basically I want each sheet to say whether or not the rock, soil or drift type is present for each area. And if it is present to calculate the percentage of total area. I have created a pivot table for each of the info spreadsheets - but need it to look like the "table" sheets, because it needs to be added to a report. Any questions and i'll try and answer them , but it's quite difficult to explain in words what i am trying to achive.

## Calculate Number Based On Percentage

## Calculate Percentage Based On The Number

Jul 17, 2008

I am working on a spreadsheet which has lots of data in it. I have a Column i.e. Checked out and on each cell entered an X Mark indicating that a device has been checked out.

Since this Checked Out Column goes all the way down to > 1000 cells. Is there a way for us to make a formula and calculate percentage based on the number of X's that are entered and tell as that out of 1000 cells, the X's are 65% and so the blank cells would have to be checked to complete the list?

## Custom Number Format - Percentage

Jul 8, 2014

I am trying to create a custom number format.

Here is what I have come up with: 0.00%;[Red]-0.00%

The problem is, it has no "," it would display as 23555555.6% or -2355555.6%

I need it to display as: 23,555,555.6% or -23,555,555.6%

How would this be written?

Additionally, I have occasion to "abbreviate" in the following format:

23.55MM% or 1.5M% or -23.55MM% or -1.5M%

For currency, I have it written in this manner:

Currency: [>=1000000] \$#,##0.0,," MM";[>0] \$#,##0.0," M";[Red](\$#,###," M")

I just freeze when trying to convert to percentage.

## Express Copied Number As Percentage

Oct 10, 2006

I would like to use vba to copy a value in F31 to B5 in sheets("2") and express it as a percentage.

For example, the value in F31, 102 is copied to B5 as 102. Like to have it express as 102%.

## Percentage Of Number Greater Than Other Numbers

Sep 7, 2007

"in Excel" - my formula for cell C11 is: "What percentage of the time (occurrences) was the value in cell B11 greater than the values in A1 thru A10?"

As in...:

100
99
98
97
96
95
94
93
92
91
90...95.....40%
89...16.......0%
88...123...100%
87...90......20%

So no data in first 10 rows of Col B. (Or Col C, of course.) Then for the value that appears in B11, how many times (out of 10, in this example for sake of ease) was that value greater than the entries in the first ten entries in Col A:

95 (cell B11) was greater than A10, A9, A8 and A7 (91, 92, 93 and 94). So 4 times out of 10, B11 was greater; 40% is the answer the formula would yield.

16 was never greater than any entries in A2 thru A11, so 0%.

And 123 was greater than all the entries in A3 thru A12, so 100%. Etc, copied down the sheet...

## Return Percentage Of Number Based On Its Value

## Percentage Of Cell Value To Number Count

Jun 5, 2008

I know for some of you this will be pretty simple but im having trouble figuring it out. Attached is a shortened version of what i am trying to do. I want the Percent Attendance column to represent the cumulative percentage(hope I used the correct phrase). So for Person 1, it should currently say 100%, person 2 it should say 66.67% and so on. There are 5 days that i want to get the percentage, but because we haven't gotten to 2 of them yet, using a regular sum formula for the entire five days gives me the wrong values.

## Input Allocation Percentage Dependent On Number Of Variables

May 15, 2014

On the attached sheet in column X, I am trying to input the Allocation percentage dependent on a number of variables:

Type (Bar, Blank, Coil, Sheet, Special)
Sub Fam Code (2A02, BC02-05, BC99, BZ99)
Sup Category (Arcelor, Independent, Tata/ Corus)

The allocation percentage is based on the below; anything outside of this should result in "Other".

Sheet (BC02/03/04) A=40%, T=40% & I=20%
Coil (BC02 & BC03) A=40%, T=40% & I=20%
Coil (BC04) A=30%, T=50% & I=20%

Example 1:
Type - Sheet & Coil
Sup Category - Independent
Result 20%

Example 2:
Type - Coil
Sup Category - Tata/ Corus
Sub Fam Code - BC04
Result 50%

Example 3:
Type - Coil
Sup Category - Arcelor
Sub Fam Code - BC04
Result 30%

## Formula For Largest Percentage Related To Reference Number

May 15, 2014

I have data one sheet which is

Date Ref No Type %complete
Monday 1 Erect 75
Monday 2 Erect 50
Tuesday 1 Erect 95
Wednesday 1 Erect 100

On the next tab I am consolidating all the reference numbers and want to capture the latest % complete

I have been trying =Max(if ref no=1 and type = Erect, % complete),1

But when I try it for reference number 2, it just says 100% aswell, when that should be 50%.

## Calculate Number Required To Achieve Target Percentage?

Mar 28, 2012

I am trying to create a formula to calculate the total number of calls that I need to receive to hit the target % if the current % is less than the target %. I have tried various formulae, but not having much luck. Also, it shouldn't show me any negative figures.

A = Departments
B = Calls Dropped
C = Calls Received
D = Current % (C/F)
E = Target %
F = Total (B + C)
G = Required (When I enter B, C and E, the rest needs to calculated automatically. G should tell me the amount of calls I need to receive in order to achieve the target specified in E)

Departments
Calls DroppedCalls ReceivedCurrent %Target %TotalCalls Required to hit TargetDept 1
21083.33%95.00%12 Dept 2
067100.00%90.00%67 Total
27791.67%95.00%79

## Formula To Calculate Percentage Based On Number And Text In Cells

May 14, 2014

I have a form in work which acts as a tick sheet for tasks complete on a construction site. When a task is complete I copy & paste from a key of dates i.e. week ending 11.05.15, this allows me to see what week a task was complete.

Generally I only marked off tasks which were 100% complete but my manager wants me to enter the % of the task complete also, i.e. 80% in the box.

So my question is how can I have the formula assume that any box with a date & shading is 100% and any cell with a number i.e. 80 is only 80% complete. I need it to monitor around 150 cells and give me the overall % complete based on what i have discussed.

## How To Find Number Of Rows That Meets Cumulative Percentage Critieria

Apr 23, 2008

I have a dataset in Excel 2007 where I need to determine the number of census tracts (as rows) it takes for each column of data values (populations of different ethnic groups) to reach a cumulative percentage of 50% of their City group total. This is a measure of concentration that will vary from group to group.

I can do this manually by sorting each column from largest population percentage to smallest population percentage, then shift-click selecting the first row, scrolling down until I see the sum of percentages shown in the bottom right corner first reaches 50.000% or more.

Is there a cell formula I can use to determine the number of rows it takes to meet the criteria? I have to do this for 250 columns.

Is there a cell formula I can use to determine the number of rows it takes for a column of data values to reach a specific amount, that is first reach a cumulative percentage of 50.000% of the column total? It must be based on the data values from largest to smallest but I don't want to have to manually sort each column I have.

## Adding A Transaction Number

Oct 24, 2009

I have a form that requests random info. All this information is saved to a worksheet. I would like to give each transaction a reference number. In order to do so I would like each time a new record is saved to add 1 to the previous reference number. Also I would like to start the transaction with a unique identifier "ie. rn1001".

## Adding Groups Of Number?

Apr 12, 2012

I have two groups of data? I selected the cells in yellow and defined the name of those cells as group1. I want to be to do absolute value of individual cells and add them up. I tried pressing shift control and enter and it still isn't giving me a number. I can do it if the numbers are next to each other but if they are separated by a row it won't let me.

## Adding Plus 1 To Number With Letter In It?

Sep 7, 2013

I'm trying to add plus 1 to a cell from another cell but it doesn't work because the number starts with a letter. I do want to keep the letter in there for a reason so removing the letter to make it work is not what I want.

Example:

Code:
ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Invoice").Range("H5").Value = ActiveCell.Value + 1

Is it that I need to declare and set the ActiveCell value as a string or something?

## Adding Zero At The Start Of Number

## Adding A 0 To The Front Of A Number

Sep 8, 2008

I have a worksheet to keep track of products. I use an SKU column with a Unique Number to keep track of those items on the shelves.

When I started my project I never imagined that my database would grow as large as it has. I started my SKU numbers with 80000, never suspecting that I would get to 90000. I am now at 125700. Many items have been removed / sold so it only encompases only 15500 rows.

On the site that I sell these Items, the SKU's when displayed start with 100000 and go to 125700 where 80000 is next and goes to 99999? ( or the reverse depending on which tab I choose ) Not sure why this is but there is nothing I can do to change the way they do it so I must find a way to change my system. With all the 80000 - 99999 items numbered - changing them to 6 digit 125700+ numbers would be a huge undertaking so I would like to add a 0 in front of each 5 digit Number in my SKU Column. That way my items will show 080000- 125700 instead of starting in the middle.

I do keep the column my ascending order so it is currently formated as a Number. I do at times copy an paste or pull ranges items by SKU numbers to mark down or modify.

When I place a 0 manually in front of 80000- it disappears when I move from the Cell.

If I change it to a TEXT cell- it stays in place.

Excel help doesnt answer my dilemma-- nor does my book.

I see there are masks etc -- or is just text OK ? (as I stated - I do use an numbered order or range to identify groups of items at times )- if text is OK, what is the best way to add a 0 to the start of each 5 digit number other than individually ?

There are Gaps in my sequence so I cannot just replace the first cell with 080000 and pull down.

## Adding A Sequential Number

Jan 26, 2007

You will probably find this very easy but I am having all sorts of trouble making it work as I want to! Basically I need to do the following procedure...

1) Open an Inputbox to collect an eight digit number
2) Insert a column in A:A
3) In A1, enter a col header (URN)
4) In A2, enter the number that was collected in the inputbox
5) Enter sequential number from A2+1 to the last row

Ideally, this would be randomised, so after stage 2 do RAND(), sort, and clear contents, but if I can get the main part right I'm sure I can work that out!

## Adding Colour Background And Number

Jul 28, 2014

In the IAF tab, last one on sheet, I want to highlight a cell if on the Day tabs there is anything in column E, this will be text e.g. LAD, LE, E, AD, LC or NS, and in the same cell show the number that appears in column J of the day tabs, the excel sheet I'm working is to large to upload, if I delete some of the tabs all of the formulas go out of kilter. If Joe Blogs was at work on Day 1, the corresponding cell in the IAF tab should be yellow, if the supervisor monitored Joe's work on Day 1 the same IAF tab cell should remain yellow and show the number that is placed in column J on Day 1 for Joe Blogs.

I have managed to upload an amended copy of the file : Job PSS MASTER - v3 6 AMENDED.xlsx‎

## Adding And Replace A Number In A Cell

Dec 4, 2008

i have a question about adding a number to a cell. This is the problem. Each day we track contacts we made in a spread sheet. how could i, lets say type 2 in a cell that already reads 42 and once a tab away from the cell it would change to 44 (add in the background 42+2=44).
