I want to count the number of cells in column B that contain the start with the string US/IL. Here's the formula that I created, but it returns a value of 0 instead of 590.

Is there something I need to do differently when a cell value contains the / character in the string?

=SUM(COUNTIF(B5:B1830,"US/IL"))

Once I have the correct formula for the above, I want to write another formula on the row below that counts how many rows of this 590 value have a corresponding "Yes" value in Column M.

I'm trying to use the countif function to search a cell containing, say, 1000 alphanumeric characters.

For example, cell A1 contains the text...

"There needs to be an easier way to build worksheet formulas for 64 levels of nesting and 255 arguments to be meaningful. Perhaps a "Formula Composer" dialog box or something that allows you to build up a complex formula in parts and allows you to evaluate the partial formulas. When you're done, and the formula is displayed in the sheet, all of the parentheses would be automatically put in the correct places."

I am using vlookup to get a cell value from another sheet, but if the cell has "&" or "/" I need to substitue "&" and "/" with "and" so that the cell can be added later to a url.

i am using =VLOOKUP(a1,Sheet2!A1:W17968,6) to get the value of a1 in sheet 2 and return the value of column 6

this will return "Audio Cables & Leads" but i need it to say Audio Cables and Leads

I need the formula to also check and replace "/" with "and" as well so cables/wire will be Cables and wire

Iīm trying to find a way to get a formula which can look if there is a character (letīs say it is "-") in a formula which is, by the way, variable (letīs say each cell has different values like: =899+59-6 and so it goes and goes), and brings me a true or false value.

Specifically it is like this:

I have formulas to be evaluated like the following:

=899+59-6

I need a formula which can look into the formula and if it finds the character "-" or a "+", brings me a true or false message.

I am working with a tab delimited file, and am needing to have a column of its own that will pull the first letter of another column. i.e. in A will be the title of the book, and in column C I need to have the first letter of the title of the book appear for other uses.

I have a spreadsheet that contains a list of dates: What I need is a formula that will count the number of cells that hava a date more than 6 months old. I also would like the field automated so I don't have to change the date manually every day.

=COUNTIF(S5:S593,"<2012/06/18") This formula will give the correct read out, but I must change the date manually.

My attempts at adding a =today() command in place of the date result in 0 being the result (not correct)

This is what I have tried: =COUNTIF(S5:S593,"<"=TODAY()-"183")

i need a formula that will remove the first 2 characters and the last character from the below, so below the result should be R0131644, the number of characters vary from row to row, they are not always 11

I'm helping out a community that puts out a role playing game by making a character sheet for their gaming system. It's normally a pen-and-paper type affair, but a few people have reached out to me and asked me to make it. Now, one thing that I really thought would be nifty would be to make it persistent. I know of the Excel basics, creating basic formulas and the such, but this is where I hit a brick wall.

For the character sheet, they normally have basic attributes on a 1-20 scale. These attributes are accomanied by a bonus. The only thing is those, while these bonuses go across a linear path (For attribute 1, it's -30, for 2 its -20, for 3 its -10, for 4 its -5 for 5 its 0....), I cant seem to figure out how to create some kind of If/Then formula for it....

Heres my example:

Brad makes a character that has a score of 9 for one of his attributes. The bonus given to someone with a 9 is a +10. What I'm looking to do is create a table that sees that 'If (c9)=9, Then (d9)=+10'...

And my second related issue...

Is there any possible way to do the above mentioned formula in relation to a drop down selection bar? It's the same thing here; To break it down simply, It would be excellent if there was a way for it to say If (a10)=Warrior, then (c10)= +10.

Row 2 to 5 are of same item no. The result that is required is in Column C. The formula to check same item numbers in column A and give the result as "FRA" in column C3 with C2, C4, C5 showing as not applicable. Similarly for the next item no

Is there a fomula that can add trailing spaces. For example....I need a certain feild to be 11 Characters in length. So lets say in Column A, I have a bunch of different words:

House Bird Up Down Yes No

I would like to put a formula in column B that takes my original text and adds blank spaces to the end of it until it's 11 Characters. So "House" in Column A would be "House " in column B.

The usage of the wild card character is not getting me the results I need for a formula I am using at work. When the wild card asterisk character is removed, I get the correct result but only for an exact match of the particular text. I need it to match the "Particular Text plus another text. The Text is CBKC. Then there is also CBKC 5400 and so on. I need to have the wild card expression character before and after the CBKC characters. The formula is below that I used.

Excel doesn't like the way I am expressing the wild card inside the double quotes......the column getting added if the matches are found is column K. The other columns have to meet the criteria in the formula.

I need a formula which can pick out the names from string of text, each name follows "-->", the number of names in each cell differs and is undefined. The result needs to be posted into each column following these cells.

An example of a cell is below:

"W/L FIGHTER Str TD Sub Pass EVENT METHOD ROUND TIME

Loss -->--> Tom Aaron -- -- -- -- Strikeforce - Hen... U. DEC 3 5:00

-->--> Matt Ricehouse -- -- -- -- Dec. 4, 2010

Win -->--> Tom Aaron -- -- -- -- Strikeforce - Hea... SUB 1 0:56

I have tried using text to columns but everything after the first line is not recognised (when I click finish anything after "TIME" is simply not there).

I have got a list of numeric abbreviations, for instance 10739011/21/31/41. What it should really display are the numbers 10739011, 10739021, 10739031 and 10739041 (the first six figures stay the same). All the numbers in my list are 8 figures long. I want to change the list from the list seperated by the backward slash to the complete numbers. I have uploaded an example of the list with backward slash between the numbers. Is there a way that Excel can automatically change these numbers to the full numbers?

Because all the numbers are 8 figures long, I thought the first 6 figures of the 1st number can be copied and those 6 figures pasted before the other two figures after the backslash. Auto Merged Post Until 24 Hrs Passes;sorry, pressed OK too quickly. The problem is that there are sometimes 4 numbers in the cell, sometimes 6 and once three. I would like Excel to complete all the numbers in the cell and then move on to the cell underneath it and so on. Also, I would like each number to have it's own cell.

my current formula is =COUNTIF('Input Page'!A2:A50000,"=Monday")

i'd like to change it to check what day is in the field and then only do the above formula if that day is within the past week.

so i need the "=Monday" section to be changed to read "(is equal to monday) and (is between today and today-6)" ...todays date will be taken from 'Input Page'!B2:B50000

See attached document, there are 11 cells in which will either contain Yes or No. Looking at the different combinations that there can be there can only ever be 9 out of the 11 cells being used or 10 out of 11 being used.

Also the last question (Row 25) could be filled N/A if this occurs I would like the formula not to count that. Is there a counting formula or IF formula which can be done to help me out?

i have a spreadsheet that acquires data from 42 other worksheet and in a row of cells it has yes or no at the bottom of that row i have =COUNTIF(A2:A34,"YES"). But it will not count the yes' because the cells that it is trying to count all have formulas in them like =tues!A34 or similar is there a different formula i can use to still count the yes' even in a cell containing a formula?

I already have a conditional format which is working OK. I would like to put a formula in the cell so it shows a % so currently it would be 100% as there is 3 cells below showing 3 greens.

Alternativily each colour is worth a value - Green = 1, Amber = 2, Red = 3. So Cell I3 would show 3.

I am using the following formula to calculate the number of responses:

=COUNTIF([Cleanliness of Environment:],"None of the above")

However, I only want the number of cells which contain words other than "None of the above". The formula is counting empty cells. Is there a way to weed out the empty cells and receive a tally of only cells with words other than "None of the above" in them?

It's been awhile since I've used excel formulas so I'm very rusty but I need to count the number of times I see a particular item in a list as long as it has another criteria as well. Example List and Result are below: I want to count the number of AAA Rewards that Alex has....

List #DateEmployeeAmountReward Type 14/17/07Alex$5.00AAA Reward 24/19/07Joe $10.00AAA Reward 34/19/07Alex $5.00 Store Certificate 44/20/07Alex $10.00 AAA Reward

Result Employee # AAA Reward Amount # Store Certificates Amount Alex Brian Joe

I have a sheet with repeated dates for several months and I need to break out data by week and then by certain criteria. I can do 1 or the other but combining the COUNTIF formula and the SUMPRODUCT formula has proven to be beyond me.

What I need to do is have the formula return a sum of all of the fields in colG that are >5 within a date range. Once I find that # I have to divide it by another field and multiply by 100 to get the percent.
