# Can't Use Numbers In Formula

Mar 21, 2007

I copied and pasted a text file into excel. Now I am trying to sum the numbers, but the formula always equals zero. How can I fix this so that excel recognizes the numbers.

I tried copying 1 and pasting special values - multiply. This has always worked for me in the past, but its not working now.

Ex. cell A1 equals 100, A2 = 50 sum(A1:A2) = 0

## Use The Results Of A Formula As Column/row Numbers In Another Formula

Oct 1, 2009

I have two cells. The first cell has the formula:

=CONCATENATE("D",TEXT(MATCH(\$B\$6,'Zip Ranges'!\$D\$1:\$D\$157,0)+1,"0"))

which results in a col and row number (such as D65).

The second cell has the following formula:

=INDEX('Zip Ranges'!\$A:\$B,MATCH(\$B\$6,'Zip Ranges'!D1:\$D\$157,0),2)
^^
I wish to replace the 'D1" in the Match function with the results of the first cell's formula.

I assume Indirect would work, but I don't know how to code the formula to use it.

## Sum Formula To Add X Largest Numbers?

Aug 24, 2014

writing a formula to sum the six largest numbers from a row of numbers. I have used the array formula "=SUM(LARGE(E2:M2,{1,2,3,4,5,6}))" and it works for rows that have six or more numbers; however, not all of my rows always have six or more numbers. Rows that have less than six result in "#NUM!".

## Using Highest Of 2 Numbers In Formula

Jan 20, 2014

I'm trying to wrap up a spreadsheet and I'm trying to figure out how to have my formula use the highest of 2 numbers when making a calculation.

For example:

If:
Cell A1 = 5000
Cell B1 = 3828

I want the formula to use A1 in this case. However, if the total of B1 = 6000, I want the formula to use B1 instead of A1 in the calculation. (A1 = 5000 will always be a constant/base).

## Formula Used With Numbers And Letters

Jan 23, 2014

I am a school teacher trying to adjust my tracking sheet to calculate pupils levels. I am looking for 2 potential formulas that will do the following.

1 - In cell AE I would like to generate a formula that will take the data entered in cells J:5, L:5, N:5, P:5, R:5, T:5, V:5, X:5, Z:5, AB:5 and AD:5 and give an average level.

2 - In cell AH is it possible to generate a formula that will calculate how many levels of progress the pupils are making - In other words I need Cell I to be calculated against cell J to see how much progress the pupils are making - for example if in cell I:5, a pupil is was given a 3a, and then in cell J:5 is given a 4b, they will have made 2 sub levels of progress. As well as this, can that progress then be averaged out across cells I:5, K:5, L:5, M:5, O:5, Q:5, S:5, U:5, W:5, Y:5, AA:5 and AC:5 to give an overall number of of levels of progress? An then..... can I colour co-ordinate the cell so that if the pupils are making 3 or more sub levels of progress it turns green, 2 sub levels orange and 1 sub level red?

Levels work like this

3c
3b
3a
4c
4b
4a
5c
5b
5a and so on

## Use A Formula To Group Same Numbers?

Jan 29, 2014

I'm trying to find a way to sort or use a formula to group same numbers that are positive and negative together for reconciliation purposes. What part of my spreadsheet looks like is this:

TypeAmount
SA-10000
SA-500
DM10000
SA-20000
DM500
DM20000

What I am trying to make it look like is this: (each SA has a corresponding DM entry)

TypeAmount
SA-10000
DM10000
SA-500
DM500
SA-20000
DM20000

I know there is a VBA method but i'm not very familiar with VBA so am trying to find a formula if there is one.

## Range Of Numbers In A Formula

Dec 15, 2005

I'm making an eligibility chart based on income. If 1 person (equals a
household) makes between \$0 and \$1000 (household income) they are in "x"
category. if that person makes between \$1001 and \$2000, they are in "y"
category. If that person exceeds \$2000, they are in "z" category. So I have
3 categories they can be included in (x=Free, y=reduced, z=paid...it isn't
just a true and false statement). The tricky part is the number of people in
the household. 2 to infinite # of people making in the range of \$0-\$1000
need to be in "free" category. 2 cells are being drawn from. A1 is the
number of people, A2 is the income, A3 is the formula for figuring their
eligibility. I need A3 to say "Free", or "Reduced", or "Paid" as the end
result of the data.

## Negative Numbers In An IF Formula

Jul 19, 2006

IF formula

=IF(D9="","",IF(AND(G9>0,G10>0),"",IF(G9>=G10,G9,G10))+IF(E10=0,"",E10))

G9 and G10 can be positive or negative. If G9 or G10 is a negative number,
I want the greater of the two to be used and then to be added to E10. But
right now, Excel is saying -20 (which is G10) is greater than zero. I'm
getting a VALUE error.

## Formula To Subtotal The Next Two Numbers

Aug 21, 2007

The following is what I have in A1:C3.

4 TRUE 0
4 FALSE 4
4 FALSE 4

The Formula in C1 is =IF(B1=TRUE,SUBTOTAL(9,C2:C3),A1)

This formula is then copied down to C2 and C3. I want this formula to subtotal the next two numbers if the cell to the left is true. Right now it is giving me 0, but it should be giving me 8.

## Formula To Search The Numbers

May 31, 2006

= SUMIF( 'Worksheet'!\$A\$6:\$A\$22,"*Living*",'Worksheet'!\$P\$6:\$P\$22)

But i has one a major defect, it doesn't search the whole worksheet, the reason why i limited the search area (Worksheet'!\$A\$6:\$A\$22) is because this formula must only find the word 'living' under one part on the worksheet which its rows have the number 3 in them. So from A6 to A22 all rows have the number 3 in column D but after the A22 the number changes to 4 and so on.

Is there a way that the formula can search the number 3 in Column C from C6 to C500 first, then find the word Living from A6 to A500 then sums the rows the formula has found from P6 to P500.

## Automatic Updating Of Numbers In Formula?

Jul 29, 2014

I thought I could update formulas dynamically by dragging into new cells but it's not working.

Problem: I have a time series of input from a device that samples at 40Hz. The output I get from this device in Excel consists of 40 columns in row 1 (representing the first second) and then it creates a new row - row 2 - which also consists of 40 columns of values (representing second 2) - and it does this until the end of the response period which for me is 10 seconds. When I do a quick filter I end up with 10 rows, each consisting of 40 columns of data and all of this represents 1 trial. This then repeats for 32 trials.

I want to have all of my data for each trial in the same row. So I want the first 10 rows essentially collapsed into 1 row so instead of a 10x40 matrix representing one trial I have a 1x400 matrix representing that trial.

It starts out well enough - I make a row for my first trial and, if trial 1 second 1 = H2:AV2 and I'm typing in cell AY2, I just write =H2 in cell AY2 and drag across for 40 cells until I get to CK2 which will have =AV2 in it because of the automatic updating from dragging. Then I move one cell over - to CL2 - and type in =H3 and start the whole process again until I have all my 400 values in one row. I know this is a tedious way to do this but I figured once I did this it would be a simple matter of formulas and dragging to fill in the rest.

Not so. Is there a way to dynamically update references? So for example, cell AY2 has the formula =H2 in it. Now I KNOW that in AY3 I want to have the formula =H12 (because the beginning of the next trial is 10 rows down from H2) and I know I want AY4 to have =H22 etc. but when I drag the reference to H2 down it just changes it to H3, which makes sense but having a formula like =AY2+10 returns the value in AY2+10 instead of the reference, which again makes sense but I'm totally blanking on how else to do this. I've tried using offset and indirect and offset, for example, will work if I hard code in the numbers (e.g. =offset(H2, 10, 0)) but if I drag this formula down neither the 10 nor the 0 changes so I get the same formula in every which is obviously not what I want (and I guess if it did change, it would just change the 10 to 11 anyway, which again, is not the increment I'm looking for). I've also played around with adding constants of 10 and got nowhere, probably because I'm doing it wrong because I'm fairly sure I'll have to add a constant of 10 somewhere.

## Cells With Numbers Appear Blank In Formula

Feb 26, 2014

I have been trying to import CSV files into Excel on my new computer. I previously had a windows 7 system with office 2007. I have now moved across to a windows 8 system with office 2013. The problem I am faced with is the CSV files which I imported without problems on my old system don't seem to work on the new one. The excel spreadsheet shows the numbers, but when I try and use any formula, the cell comes up with 0, as if there is nothing in the cell. When using my old system, it shows that it is a picture that needs to be converted to text, but I cannot find out how to sort this out in Windows 8. I have even tried various versions of office, 2007, and 2010 on the windows 8 system with the same problem. I have tried all the things I have found online, checking the regional settings and those type of things.

## Formula To Correct The Numbers In The Next Column

Nov 3, 2008

I have a column with numbers ranging from -5 to 250. I want to write a formula to correct the numbers in the next column. If the number is less than 0, I want to replace it with 0,if the number is greater than 150 i want to replace it with 150 and if the number is in the 0-150 range it should be kept the same. Is there a way to use inequalities in a formula to do this??
