# Convert Nested Formula Into Custom Function

Jan 31, 2008
is there a way to turn the following formula into a function ?

=IF( COUNTA(A1:A7)=SUMPRODUCT((A1:A7<>" ")/COUNTIF(A1:A7,A1:A7&"")),"No Duplicates","Duplicates")

I just have no idea where to start ?

i have several days trying to convert a If nested function in a automate macro, the problem is that i have a lot of formulas, and the machine becomes slow, so i have to apply this formula to "column G"

=IF(LEFT(F2;1)="J";"C";IF(LEFT(F2;1)="g";"C";(IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(F2;rifs;1;FALSE));"NC";"C"))))

I amtrying to find a way to nest a formula in the Match function.

How can i make the following formula more dynamic so that I do not specify the colum "AY"?

=MATCH(11,Data!$AY:$AY,0)

The information is contained in column AY labeled "New-Rate" in the data sheet

I am creating a worksheet and I have a formlua where the value is text. I can make it work standing alone but not with other variables. =IF(E11=S1,0)+(IF(E12=S1,0)+(IF(E13=S1,0.0025))+IF(E14=S1,"Call for Prciing"))

I recently set up some functions based on Chip Pearson's tutorial for referencing worksheets from Formulas. (http://www.cpearson.com/excel/sheetref.htm)

The problem I'm now having is that I can't use VBA to set these functions in place; it returns a syntax error.

For example, I want I37 on most sheets to have the same formula. So I have the following:

I've created a custom Function. I would like for there to be a Helper when a user is entering the Function arguments.

For example if I go into a cell and type in =VLOOKUP(

A popup with appear that shows...VLOOKUP(Lookup_Value,Table_Array,col_index_num,[range_lookup]).

Is it possible for me to build something like this in my Function?

I am entering the following Nested IF(AND statement into a cell and getting a message stating "You've entered too many arguments for this function." Any idea on what formula I can use to get the needed information into this cell based on the fact that there are different inputs that can be entered into the related cell that will trigger the needed respons in the working cell?

=IF(AND(K1051="Down",L1051<2),"Yes","",IF(AND(K1051="Partially Down",L1051<2),"Yes",""))

I keep getting the "You've entered too many arguments for this function" error.

Here is the formula:

I'm trying to make a converter between about 8 various types of values. These are not units like Km or miles or something like that, but rather numbers that represent a specific "hardness value" on a variety of scales (to name a few: HRC, HRA, K)

What I've been doing so far is plotting the two types against eachother and then getting the best trendline I can so that I can use that formula to convert between the two with relative certainty. (for example, when plotting HV vs HRC my fourth order polynomial trendline with an Rsquared of 1 is y=0.0001x4 - 0.0188x3 + 1.0768x2 - 20.709x + 350.69)

My questions comes up where I was hoping to make a window or box of some sort allowing the user to input a numeric value, then selecting the Input units and the hopeful output calculated units, and have the box spit back to the user the conversion.

Data in a cell is formatted in h:mm which is truly a result of a calculation of # of hours & minutes detained at a location. D

Data is result of microstrategy query so result is

E.g. 17:08

Cell is formatted as custom h:mm, but there is actually a fictitious date of 1/1/1900 defaulting in front of h:mm when double clicking into cell or viewing in fx field above. How do I get rid of that date which is inhibiting me from converting 17:08 to minutes by using the formula of =TEXT(L3,"[m]")

I am trying to create a nested IF function (has 5 IF statements), however,

every time I put the brackets at the end of the function, it puts a little .

next to the false answer, removes the brackets and comes up with an error

message?

This is only happening on one particular PC, when I create the same formula

on other pC's, it works fine so I know my formula is correct.

is there a setting on the PC that must be wrong?

I have an assignment in which I have to use nested, IF, AND and OR functions. Does anyone know the syntax for this kind of function? Basically I have to determine leave time based on years of service and whether the employee is full time or part time. Part-time with less than 1.5 years of service = 0 days of leave Part-time over 1.5 and full-time under 1year = 3 days of leave and full time over 1 year = 5 days of leave. I know how to do a nested function, but I have not worked with both an AND and OR together.

I need to keep track of my salesmen's time. However, the company will not pay for the first 45 minutes so I need a formula that says, if the time entered in under "worked" is less than 45 minutes, no time will be deducted. If the time entered is equal to or greater than 45 minutes, 45 minutes will be deducted. These are the columns needed and the Daily Hours would be the total of all the previous columns.

I am trying to concatenate the text of a few cells in a specific worksheet. I'm not wanting to use the STRING & STRING type code because I already had a Concatenate formula nested with an index formula and needed to have this formula copied to a certain RANGE, Where the RANGE was specified by a Variable. T

he Code below does what I need if the CONCATENATE/INDEX formula is in the cell that im copying already. (BELOW) The Formula in the cell, for example, on row 19 of worksheet "COMMISSION", that needs to be copied and incremented down the VARIABLE RANGE is

=CONCATENATE(INDEX(OUTPUTS!J:J,(ROW(OUTPUTS!J2)-1)*2+1)," ",INDEX(OUTPUTS!K:K,(ROW(OUTPUTS!K2)-1)*2+1)).

VB:

Dim iInput_Rows As Integer

iInput_Rows = Worksheets("Workspace").Range("D3").Value

Dim iOutput_Rows As Integer

iOutput_Rows = Worksheets("Workspace").Range("D1").Value

Dim iAnalog_Rows As Integer

[Code] ....

My problem is when I use the following code to insert that concatenate/index formula, through vba, then I get errors because it evidently doesnt like the " " for the space i needed between texts. (The Formula is concatenating text in those cells but every other Row) Can I do this in VBA?

VB:

Worksheets("COMMISSION").Range("B19 + iOutputs_Rows").Formula = "=CONCATENATE(INDEX(OUTPUTS!J:J,(ROW(OUTPUTS!J2)-1)*2+1)," ",INDEX(OUTPUTS!K:K,(ROW(OUTPUTS!K2)-1)*2+1))"

I'm writing a spreadsheet where I need to calculate a nested IF function (I think), and I am unsure of how to do it.

The problem is this:

The total $ value of the quote is entered, then depending on two variables, a rebate may be deducted from this total value. The first variable is eligibility (a Y/N response), the second is the type of project - there are two types of project and each attract a different rebate amount.

So I have:

A: total quote $

B: Eligibility - 'Y' or 'N' (if 'Y', then value of 'C' is deducted from 'A'), (if 'N', then no value is deducted from 'A')

C: Type - '1' or '2' (if '1', then 'C' = $1000), (if '2', then 'C' = $1600)

D: final result

I have multiple sheets within one Excel file. Each sheet is structured the same way. Column B lists Client's last names, which differ from sheet to sheet, though some clients may be repeated in several tabs. I have a column K which displays either the number 1 or 0. This is consistent between sheets.

I have created a formula that will look at the last name in a specific cell in column B of sheet 2 (FY 07) and search sheet 1 (FY 06) column B for the same last name.

=IF(MATCH($B5,'FY 06'!$B$5:$B$24,0),1,0)

If the same last name exists and if column K of sheet 2 and sheet 1 display a "1", I want it to place a 0 in the formula cell.

So, if there is a client that is in both sheets and has a "1" in both columns K of each sheet, I want the formula to let me know.

I receive montly investment performance projections going out monthly for 10 years. I need to show the return annually for each year. I created a SUMIFS formula to sum the percentages between two date ranges (beginning of the year and the end of the year for each year). However, my SUMIFS formula does not take into considersation compounding. How can I modify the SUMIFS formula I created to take into consideration compounding?

I know how to convert monthly percentages to an annual percentage,using the PRODUCT formula =PRODUCT(1+T15,1+U15,1+V15,1+W15,1+X15,1+Y15,1+Z15,1+AA15,1+AB15,1+AC15,1+AD15)-1, whereas T15:AD15 is the monthly percentage gain. Is there a simplier/alternative way that I can incorporate into the SUMIFS formula?

If it is too complicated to utilize a SUMIFS formula, I would like to be able to select a range of cells and have Excel calculate the result vs typing "1+[select the cell]," for each month. It takes me forever and open to input errors. It would be much easier to be able to select a range of cells when creating the formula.

I had more than 7 nested if statements so I attempted to formulate the named ranged formula. My 2 ranges are as follows: LDD1=IF(MONTH(P1)=MONTH(F2),C5-F5,IF(MONTH(P1)=MONTH(G2),C5-G5,IF(MONTH(P1)=MONTH(H2),C5-H5,IF(MONTH(P1)=MONTH(I2),C5-I5,IF(MONTH(P1)=MONTH(J2),C5-J5,IF(MONTH(P1)-MONTH(K2),C5-K5,IF(MONTH(P1)=MONTH(L2),C5-L5))))))) LDD2=IF(MONTH(P1)=MONTH(L2),C5-L5,IF(MONTH(P1)=MONTH(M2),C5-M5,IF(MONTH(P1)=MONTH(N2),C5-N5,IF(MONTH(P1)=MONTH(O2),C5-O5,IF(MONTH(P1)=MONTH(P2),C5-P5,IF(MONTH(P1)-MONTH(Q2),C5-Q5))))))

Basically what it's doing is comparing the current month with the month in the column heading and calculating appropriately. However, when i input the if statement (=if(LDD1,LDD1,LDD2), i get an error saying that it's an inconsistent formula and the result that it gives is wrong, too. Problem cell is e5

I am working on creating a simple Excel Database of an Engineering Tool Room Inventory for work. However I can not seem to get one particular 'NESTED IF Function' to do what I want it to do. (In advance warning, I may be going down the wrong route and might have used the wrong Formula in Excel but from my understanding the 'IF' function seemed the most plausible.

Issue: All I would like to do is for a NESTED IF Function to be able to say this:

1. When a user inputs data into one column, for example 'Column A', with the following data: 4" Square

2. Then the neighbouring column, for example 'Column B', would have a NESTED IF Function.

3. Which would output a logical response, "A, B, C, D, E, F etc...", depending on what is written in Column A.

If 'Column A' - 4" Square, Then 'Column B' - A

If 'Column A' - 5" Square, Then 'Column B' - B

& So on...

But the NESTED IF Function should only put a logical response if there is certain values within the cell, for example:

User types a value into 'Column A' which contain - 4 & S, Then 'Column B' - A

User types a value into 'Column B' which contain - 5 & S, Then 'Column B' - B

& So on...

Currently to do the above function, I have utilised the following Excel NESTED IF Function:

[Code] .....

& The following happens:

1. User inputs data into 'Column A'

2. The NESTED IF Function then provides an automatic response.

3. However it relies on the data being inputted without the ' " (Quotation Symbol)'

4. & With me defining the exact phrase that should be typed into the cell, for example, "4" Square"

Other: I have attached an example worksheet of the NESTED IF Function in practice, with two tables. One showing what is happening with the code above and one table showing what I would like to happen but with no function.

I am trying to use a combination of Concatenate and IF formula to produce an email.

My input.

D4: First Name:

D5: Middle Name:

D6: Last Name:

D8: Organization:

Once all these are filled, I want the formula to produce a result like

FirstName.M.LastName@Organization.com

I have used the following formula.

[Code] .....

Problem is if there is a middle name the formula works fine, but in case where there is no middle name, it produces the following result.

FirstName..LastName@Organization.com

How do I remove the additional (.) in cases where there is no middle name.

Imagine i have 2 columns: Open and Close, both of these got numbers like

1 ---- 2

3 ---- 1

4 ---- 10

and so on. I had to make a function which checks if some number is in between any of those Open and Close numbers and count how many, for example: im searching for number 1.3, so according to previously drawn table i would get answer of 2, because 2 is in between 1----2 and 3-----1, i achieved this by a simple function:

=IF(OR(AND(Bendras!$J$1>=Table1[[#This Row],[Open]],(Table1[[#This Row],[Close]]>=Bendras!$J$1)),AND((Bendras!$J$1<=Table1[[#This Row],[Open]]),(Table1[[#This Row],[Close]]<=Bendras!$J$1))),TRUE,FALSE)

this generated an additional column with TRUE and FALSE values which i counted with:

=COUNTIF(Table1[T/F],TRUE)

and got the answer.

so now then preparations are ready i need to make a function which would for example if the number i was searching was in 10th and 45th rows find the MAX/MIN values of Close column between those rows(hope i made my self clear)

this is how i was hoping to do that : first of all make a new array of all cell addresses from "Close" column which were "TRUE" from the first function i wrote and when do w/e i like with those cell addresses in other functions.
