# Calculating Cells Used Based On Another Cells Data

Mar 6, 2008
I have a bit of an odd issue I need to solve. I use an Excel spreadsheet to track daily income for the store over a months' period. I have each day set to give me a rough estimate of profitability for that day. I also want to create a cell that tells me how much we've made so far, based on the number of business days so far in the current month. For example:

Day 1, $1500, $800 in expenses (monthly expenses averaged over the month, plus labor costs for the day), so a total of $700 profit.

Day 2, $1700, $749 in expenses (same as before), so a total of $951 profit.

The formula I'm using to calculate that isn't an issue, but I have the same formula for every single day, and each day has it's own cell with the estimated profitability for that particular day. In two other cells, I put the total number of business days in that month (in this case, 26), and in another cell I put the current number of business days we've had this month (in this case, 4), which is used partially to calculate the other cells. I want to use them to create another cell to contain the estimated profitability based solely on the number of business days out of the month we've had.

So E3 through E33 contain the individual days, I want to calculate - since we've only had 4 business days - what E3 through E7 would total. When I change it to 5 business days, i want it to calculate E3 through E8. So if we've had 4 business days, it only calculates the totals from the first 4 cells, if 5 business days, then the first 5 cells, etc, etc.

I can sort of picture it in my head, but I can't seem to find the necessary equation for it. It may require a macro, but I'd rather use a formula if possible. I'm not a big fan of macros.

I need to calculate the percentage based on self populating score. however I want excel/formula to ignore any cells which has "NA" in it so that it calculates the percentage based only on the cells having Numbers.

Now these Cells which contain Numbers might or might not contain numbers based on the "IF" function which decides wether the cell will have numbers or will remain "blank" or have "NA". To understand better please have a look at the enclosed sample (that would explain my need better)

Using Excel 2002. Here's my problem.

Column A contains the month (as text)

Column C contains an employee name.

Column O contains a reason for absence.

Column K is the number of hours of absence.

The employee's name may appear several times in the worksheet. What I want to do is count the number of hours per type of absence.

E.g. If A=MAY and C=BOB and O=SICK then total hours from all instance of K = X.

This will be used on a seperate worksheet where the name C will be referenced from a validation list.

I have a worksheet that I want to populate with specific data from another worksheet.

If all of the following are met:

1) Column A equals "763" and

2) Column K is formatted Red (255, 0, 0) from conditional formatting

3) Column P is blank

Then in my blank worksheet I need to display the data from Columns A, B, D, K, O

On the "CurrentCustomer" worksheet tab I am trying to accomplish the following:

When the merged cells in the F column (F3, F25, F47...F443) equal the word "Contract", I need the corresponding total cells in the E column (E23, E45, E67...E463) to add up, if and only if the corresponding F column merged cell equals "Contract".

For example, using the first three ranges, if F3, F25, & F47 all equal "Contract", I need the corresponding E23, E45, & E67 to add up. If F3 & F47 equal "Contract", but F25 equals anything other than contract I need E23 & E67 to add up only.

Code:.....

I am constantly editing this (we currently have over 100 accounts) and therefore the totals are changing.I have a formula for Total but I need formulas for the other two, based on when the cells in columns F and J are blank or have dates in them: For active, the total is the sum of all numbers in column M but only when there is a date in column F and a BLANK in column J. For yet to enter, the total is the sum of all the numbers in column M but only when both column F and column J are blank. At the moment, my accounts run from row 6 to row 142, with the first line of totals in row 145, however this is constantly expanding.

Please check the attached workbook. Sheet "Data" has some bank account data, and whether the dues are paid or pending.

What I need is, I need to extract only the data of Column A and B into a new worksheet, only if G is in the Pending status.

I don't want to use a macro, nor a pivot, nor autofilter. I need to do it through formulas. I have seen this been done before, but can't figure it out. The max number of pending accounts wont be more than 10, so need to just pull the formula down 10 rows. I have already entered the data in the second sheet that would be the result.

This second sheet is sort of a supervisor sheet, so that whenever they want they can open it to see the number of Pending accounts.

I wish to copy a merged cell (3 cells) based on if only 1 of 3 cells to the right contain "X". if the top cell does not contain "X" than the merged cell is not copied. Also, is therea more elegant to copy 3 columns at a time rather than do one at a time as my code shows:

Sub CopyICUCAPU()

'

' CopyICUCAPU Macro

'

Dim i As Integer

[Code].....

Conditional formatting. I want to change the color of a group of cells based on data in another group of cells. Example:

If cells G8 and G9 (which are merged) are between 80% and 94%, then I9,I10,I11 (which are merged) will turn Yellow. Also, under the same scenario, IF G8 and G9 is greater than 94%, then cells I9, I10, I11 will turn Red.

I am having a problem with some of the cells in a spreadsheet not calculating.

For example, in column A, all the cells have formulas that pull data from another sheet. When I enter the formula, only the formula shows (not the result). I can't figure out what is wrong as the formulas in column B work fine (the results are showing, but not using the same data that column A is).

I am thinking it may have something to do with the data being used to calculate the formulas but not sure. How can I resolve this?

I have the workbook set to Auto Calc the Cells, which seems to be a bad idea, because with the amount of formula in the workbook, it slows the whole thing down and makes it impossible to do anything within it.

Is there a way that I can speed this process up, using some code when I run certain sections?

There is a copy of what I am doing, so you can see the amount of formula.

This is a project plan with tasks and dates. Column A is the activity number. (Example 1, 2, 3" etc). Column B is the task (Ex. "Complete Report"). Column C is number of days required to complete the task. Column D is the dependency column. (Ex. Cell D2 =1 in other words Task 2 is dependent on task 1). Column E is the date.

I would like to have a seperate start date cell and a go live date cell.

The objective is to enter a start date, and have each column E date increase based on the number of days entered in Column C. If a task is dependent on another and I change the number of days in Column C I need the dependent task to change the same amount of days.

1003 09-Aug-2008

1004 LATE

1005 12-Aug-2008

1005 LATE

I need a formula that will calculate how many "LATE" cells there are.

I work with Excel the more I realize that I'm not that good at it Anyways, I'm in need of a quite advanced formula (for me) that sums up relative relative rows of a specified column. The rows relation depends on the ID-number of the person. Look at my attachment.

In Sheet1 I have an extract of the data I'm working with. It's a medical record of different people in a study. The ID (col. B) seperate the different people. One person can have several perscriptions (spelling?) of medicine. Every perscription has an "fddd", a daily dose (col. L). I want to add up all the daily doses for every seperate ID of my data in Sheet2. So for example, for ID1 I want it to sum L3:L6 in Sheet1 and return it to Sheet2!B2. If the ID is not found I want it to be blank.

See the attatched spreadsheet. I can not seem to figure out a formula that will calculate the totals for each type of data.

My goal is to have a sum for each location for # of audits, Critical Counts, and Major Counts.

At the moment I have a simple formula that calculates the due date of a task

The log in date is in cell B3, I use a simple formula in cell F3 "=B3+20" - This gives me the due date

I now need to add another log in date but use the same due date cell

So now ....

Either B3 or D3 will contain a date - whichever one is populated I will need the due date displayed in cell F3

I have a question maybe this isn't even possible or it is i'm not that high on excel calculations, but I would like to know this.

I have this document:

If I enter anything in a cell on one work book I get calculating cell for about 3-5 seconds.

I don't have any formulas looking at the book. and I have deleted, renames, copy and pasted, exported to text and reimported and still it does it.

The thing that is odd though is that if I press return again it clears the calulation cells message.

I am calculating ratios to show as 1:0 or 3:2 etc using this formula: =IFERROR(CONCATENATE((K2/GCD(K2,N2)),":",((N2/GCD(K2,N2)))),"Nil")... I have a lot of columns that have zeros in them and the formula i am using doesn't seem to work for those...

Example

A B

3 6 should equal: 1:2 works OK

2 0 should equal: 2:0 my current result: 1:0

3 0 should equal: 3:0 my current result: 1:0

0 1 should equal: 0:1 works OK

0 0 should equal: Nil works OK

4 1 should equal: 4:1 works OK

Anything with a zero in the first column comes up as 1:0

Formula "(Cell-Cell)/ABS(Cell)"

When calculating percentage difference do I always subtract the smaller number/cell from the larger number/cell, then divide by the smaller number/cell or vice versa? Maybe I am over thinking it, but it is confusing the heck out of me

I provided an example below to illustrate a spreadsheet I work on. The numbers go up and down. I want to know how I should go about setting up the formula. If I need to ensure the smaller number is always subtracted from the bigger number, it will require a lot of manual intervention on my part.

Row 3 is =(b2-b1)/ABS(b1)Row 4 is =(b2-b1)/ABS(b2)Row 5 is custom. I went through each cell and made sure the smaller number was being subtracted from the larger number, then divided by the smaller number

I'm trying to calculate total occurrences of a given month. I have included the spreadsheet for reference with totals.

I only want to calculate when the Policy column has a "N". If it has a "Y" I do not need to do anything

If the Policy has a "N" I want the formula to look at the V and P columns and give me a total in the Total Occurrence column. I want it to look at the entire month for a grand total.

If the V or P column has a 4 or less it should equal 0.5, if it has a value is between 4 and 10 it would equal 1. So in the Total Occurrence column should calculate the all of the 0.5 and 1's based on each set of columns and give a total. In the example that I have given in the spreadsheet the total in the Total Occurrence column would be 2 because Jan. 1 has a N and a 8 which equals 1 and Jan. 3 has a N and a 4 which equals 0.5 and Jan. 5 has a N and a 4 which equals 0.5 for a total of 2 occurrences.

I have the following on a spreadsheet that keeps track of when student work is handed in and calculates how many days late it is so a penalty mark can be given.

A1= User entered value : a fixed submission date that a piece of work is due to be handed in on.

A2 = User entered value : The date entered if work is handed in on time or early

A3 = User entered value : The date the work was handed in if late

A4 = User entered value : The date the piece of work is due to be handed in if an extension has been granted

A5 = Calculated value : How many days late a piece of work is

Essentially I want the calculation in A5 to reflect how many days late a piece of work is. SUM(A3-A1) would do this of course. If the work is early or on time, A2 is ignored.

Sometimes however students have permission to hand work in late, in which case another calculation is needed to work out how many (if any) days over their extension date (A4) their work is. How do I combine these two calculations into the same cell, so that if A3 is empty it checks A4 to see if the student has an extension date and then returns a 'days late' value if applicable?

I am using Arrays throughout a large report and each time I move around in the report or simply open the report I have to wait 5 to 10 seconds to wait for the cells to calculate. Is there a way to prevent this from happening other than changing the calculation option to manual.

Is this and array problem? I don't get this when I use multiple vlookups and choose formulas? Any ideas to speed up or prevent all together?

I want to average the cells in column B but ignore values in the corresponding rows with a 1 or 7 in column C.

This will be used in a years data where 1 - 7 are days of the week and I want to separate weekdays from weekends when calculating an average.

This code is taking way too long to display the actions that it executes. It didn’t used to be that way. I was wondering if anyone knows why this may be. The Excel file is large – over 8 MB.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

Const WS_RANGE As String = "N:N"

Dim Cmnt

On Error Goto ws_exit:

Application.EnableEvents = False

If Not Intersect(Target, Me.Range(WS_RANGE)) Is Nothing Then

With Target

If .Row > 3 Then

If Me.Cells(.Row, "N").Value = "" Or Me.Cells(.Row, "N").Value = "O" Or Me.Cells(.Row, "N").Value = "H" Then

Me.Cells(.Row, "A").Resize(, 26).Interior.ColorIndex = 0

End If

If Me.Cells(.Row, "N").Value = "C" And Me.Cells(.Row, "O").Value = "DR" Then

Me.Cells(.Row, "A").Resize(, 26).Interior.ColorIndex = 39

End If

If Me.Cells(.Row, "N").Value = "C" And Me.Cells(.Row, "O").Value = "HJB" Then

Me.Cells(.Row, "A").Resize(, 26).Interior.ColorIndex = 6

I have what is probably a simple problem for most, but can't figure out what to do.

In the sample sheet attached, I have times in column E, and an action describing what has happened in column G. What I want to do is calculate the length of time between an opening action and closing one, but don't know how to go about it, as there can be an empty cell(and sometimes more) between each open and close.
