Avoiding Text In Array Formula When Using SUM Function?

Feb 4, 2014

I have a problem with an array formula where I want to sum the values in every 7th row. The problem I have is I am receiving #VALUE! in my returing cell of the formula when there is text in the array. Is there a way I can avoid including the text in the array or maybe error checking using ISERROR and ISNUMBER.

The array formula I am entering is: [Code] .........

I have the formula =today()-g3 which works fine to let me know how many days a loan has been out. However when there is no date in column g i get #value! errors. Can anyone reccomend an alteration to the formula to avoid these errors showing up as they dont look great.

I'm just getting into functions, so please bear with me on this as I start to understand how they really work. I do have the VBA and Macros for MS Excel book which has been a great help!

Normally on this I would use a simple array formula to gather a total calculation from a timesheet, but in this case there can be numerous timesheets to add this up.

Hours would be recorded on a sheet with both a client and a task selected. I also have a summary sheet to show clients against tasks... adding all the hours from each timesheet.

If it were from a single Timesheet (possibly creating a single one of these for all sheets is an option?) I would be able to use the following array formula:

=SUM(IF((Timesheet1!$F$8:$F$22=C$5)*(Timesheet1!$G$8:$G$22=$A9),Timesheet1!$D$8:$D$22)) Timesheet1 Column D = hours Timesheet1 Column F = clients Timesheet1 Column G = tasks Row 5 (starting Column C) = clients in summary sheet (across top) Column A (starting Row 9) = tasks in summary sheet (down side)...........

What would the formula be to calculate that array of values = 57% because 4 of them are equal to or greater than 9, and there are 7 of them in total? The formula should accommodate however many numbers are listed and calculate what percentage of them are 9 or 10.

Actually with the help of array formula I"m taking out Average, Min, Max value of ranges and I was omitting zero but the problem is occurring that if i have originally zero in my ranges then Average & Minimum function is not working properly.

The following formula is all on one line. I want to do indirect for file name and tab in all instances it shows up. (I want to have the filename in one cell and sheet/tab name in another cell to reference the indirect to.)

How would I use indirect in the formula to reference the cells?

I have dates & times in column A1:A20. In B1:B20 I have the corresponding temperatures for each date. I have set up the following dynamic ranges to refer to these ranges.

DateRange refers to A1:A20 TempRange refers to B1:B20

I have also made a user defined function that will determine if a date/time is between two times. Eg., If 21/05/06 07:30 is between "07:00" and "17:00". This function isn't concerned with the date, just if the time falls between the start and end times.

Function BetweenTimes(dDate As String, dStartTime As String, dEndTime As String) As Boolean

I have a formula I've been using for a long time which uses VLOOKUP to find results based on various reference cells, and then adds them up. To avoid errors caused by VLOOKUP not finding anything for one of the references I have also used ISERROR. The formula returns a blank if the calculation returns a zero.

I now need to bring further references in to the calculation but, using the format I have been, the formula is now too long. Here is my extensive formula:

I need to find a way to find an array in a tab to use for an index/match function I have.

this is what i would normally use: =index(tab_array,match($a2, tab!$a$1:$a$1000,0),match($B$1,tab!$a$1:$zz$1,0))

This formula would usually work fine when I know that within the tab, the array in which the row match is searching doesn't change. However, that array may change in the future, to say column H, without my knowing as it is a database that gets automatically populated from an upstream system.

Is there a way to search for an array within an index/match?

I'm looking to loop a comparison code. I'm using dynamic referencing (using x and y) to find maximum values for specific time intervals. The code works on a cell to cell basis, meaning if I input the formula and change the cell referencing manually then the equation will give the desired results. However when I attempted to create a VBA code to speed up the process I kept getting a 1004 Unable to set FormulaArray Property of the Range Class error, I later figured out that the Formula Array function is limited to a certain number of characters so I split up my function into 3 different string formulas. I still get the same error.

I use the following sum array formula in a range of data, but receive a #VALUE!-error, because of some lines with text. Is it possible to ignore text like this by using IF(ISERROR...) or something else, combined with the array-formula below.

I have an Array formula that returns a value from several rows below: =MAX(IF($P$8:$AQ$8="Today",$P13:$AQ13))

Row 8 contains only text and only one occurrence of the word "Today". Row 13 has only numbers. The corresponding value directly below the column containing the word "Today" is returned successfully.

I now need a similar formula to return a text entry located in the same column but on the previous row (row 12) directly above the value just returned and this row contains only text entries.

Using the above formula and referencing $P12:$AQ12 returns 0 as expected.

I have a long list of terms, and I need to identify which of these terms appear in another body of text strings. Rather than searching for each individual term, is there a formula that check the terms for me automatically.

The terms will appear in the larger body of text, but they won't appear on their own, so they won't be perfect matches.

I've attached a sheet to try to illustrate the problem.

I need to multiply an array of logical results ( returned as {1,0,0,0,1,0 et.}) with a text array (a reference column) and return the text in the reference column in case the value in the logical array is 1.

I have a list of Items and the quantities of those items on one sheet. Each item has a section location number as well. (three Columns, Item, Quantity, and Section Location). the list can repeat the same item multiple times.

This is why I then have a summary sheet to uses a SUMIF formula to sum the quantities of a given item that are in a givin section. which my SUMIF Formula works great for. But my problem is some items have the word "LUMP" as its quantity and not a number. I want to add to my array formula so if the item does have a LUMP quantity and the lump quantity is in the section location to put LUMP on the summary sheet. here is my formula

projectInfo is the sheet where the list is. Column AE is the Item column on the projectinfo sheet column B on the summary sheet would be the item that i want to sum the quantities for Column AD is the section location column on the projectinfo sheet the AA$10 is the row and column of the section location i want to limit the sum of the quantities to the formula is in cell AA59 So it will sum all the quantities in the list on the projectinfo sheet if the item and section location match whats specified on the summary sheet.

getting LUMP to display if its a lump quantity. The Lump can only show up if the item on the projectinfo sheet has LUMP for that Item AND in that section location.

EDIT: Column AF on the ProjectInfo Sheet is the quantity column

I have a time in cell C10 in hh:mm format, in cell D10 I want to add the text "DFL" in front of the time, remove the ":" and add "HRS." at the end of it. For example "DFL0715HRS." I have been able to get the following formula to work:

=CONCATENATE("DFL",(TEXT(C10,"hhmm")),"HRS.")

However sometimes it may not be a time, it could also be "Rest Day" in cell C10, if it says "Rest Day" I need it to add the text "DFL" in front as before and then change "Rest Day" to "RDFLEXI." For example "DFLRDFLEXI." I have been able to get the following formula to work but only if it is "Rest Day", if it is a time such as 07:15 it doesn't work.

It shows "DFL07157R0.": =CONCATENATE("DFL",IF(C10="Rest Day","RDFLEXI.",(TEXT(C10,"hhmm"&"HRS."))))

I think it is trying to continue doing something with the text function

with Match function not matching text in this formula?

Using the below formula cell $L$11 (it contains "abc") will not match the respective cell contents in array E:E even though "abc" is in a cell within column E.

=IFERROR(INDEX('Paste In Data File'!G:G,MATCH($L$11,IF('Paste In Data File'!C:C=B14,'Paste In Data File'!E:E),0)),"")

The cells within column E are populated using a formula such as =IF(MID(A6,3,1)="a",MID(A6,435,9),"")

Column A is the data source and contains a text string.

After much trial and error, it seems the cause preventing the match is; $L$11 contains typed in text "abc" and the above formula for column E is pulling in 9 characters, not just 3.

It seems that if I can modify the entry for the array E:E to just look at the left 3 characters only, it may work.Problem is I do not know how to modify E:E accordingly.

I have the following formula: =TEXT(( SUM(D98,D117,D136))/12,"0")&"' - "&MOD((SUM(D98,D117,D136)),12)&""""

This formula adds the inches in D98, D117 & D136 and divides it by 12 to get the footage of the 3 cells. The problem occurs when you reach the half foot mark...for instance say D98 was 2-0 (24 inches), D117 was 3-0(36 inches) and D136 was 2-6(30 inches) added up this comes out to 7-6(90 inches)...the formula then rounds the footage up to 8 feet...this can understandably be frustrating when I'm trying to get an exact measurement...is there a way to force the formula not to round up?

Say I have 3 columns of data: A1:C10 and I want to run a Match() function on them all together to see if I get a match any one those cells, say the value of have in X1.

Since, Match only allows a One-Column lookup array.. is there a way to "concatenate" or "append" the 3 columns together within a formula so now I would be looking to Match in an array that is 1 column * 30 rows?

Basically want to convert =Match(X1,A1:C10,0) to =Match(X1,A1:A30,0) without moving around the raw data in the sheet.

And I want to avoid doing an AND or OR formula that uses 3 separate MATCH() for each column.

I have a hunch that the MMULT or MMULT/TRANSPOSE functions are involved, but can't seem to get it right.

I have a sheet that requires me to press F9 each time I open it to re-calculate all cells. Why do I need to do this on this 1 sheet? A few months back it was fine and didn't require the extra attention.

1 - D2- because the supplier has no address it shows up as "0" can you guys help me fix that to show nothing?

2 - Can you guys help me build a formula for E8? Right now I have it as $C8*$D8 it works fine until C or D is empty it gives me the #VALUE because I have a formula in D. Because of the #VALUE my formula in E14,15,16 does not work.

I am multiplying cells and copy down the column to make it easy.

Cell D17, has "=A17*B17" in it. This is fine when there are numbers to compute, but when there aren't, D17 will display "0". How can I have cell D17 remain empty if nothing is put into A17 and B17?

If I have two stock codes the same in column A (not necessarily one below the other), I only want to count one of the occurrences per fund. So I would like to avoid counting the duplicate records for funds C and D. The desired outcome for the total holdings of LKOH should be 6 and not 8.

Let's say I have a sheet called Category. Column A contains code; column B contains description. Now I have another sheet in which either column F contains a category code or column G contains a category description. I want to look up the code in column F if the description is given or the description in column G if the code is given. I thought I might be able to do something like:

in F2: IF($G2<>"",INDEX(Category!A:A,MATCH($G2,Category!$B:$B,0)),"") in G2: IF($F2<>"",INDEX(Category!B:B,MATCH($F2,Category!$A:$A,0)),"")

(and then copy the formulae down the rest of the columns of course). In other words, if the cells were both empty then there would be no common dependency; it would just set them both to empty. However, if I provided either value then it would overwrite the formula in that cell so there would be only one formula left and nothing to be circular dependent about.

However, it must be looking at the condition itself and seeing the two columns in common because it is coming up with a circular dependency. I thought I might be able to trick it by having IF(INDEX($G:$G,ROW())<>"",... but it still doesn't work. This sort of situation must crop up from time to time. How do we get around it?

How do I avoid using arrays? I am reaching Excel 2003's limit.

Our workbook has many worksheets, each with tables generated from queries that have multiple columns. On the first sheet we have arrays that refer to the other worksheets. Such as:

I have a worksheet of Users with columns pertaining to first, middle, and last names. I want to allow duplicates in each column but not a completely duplicated record.
