Creating A Formula To Add Lbs+ozs+drams

I have the records of a local angling club going back to 1932 and these records include the results of fishing matches matches held through that period. I want to analyze the catches of those matches in order to identify any trends that may exist on the river that those matches were fished and although I am reasonably computer literate I have never needed to use spread sheets.

If the data from those records were in metric measurement it would be no problem but they are in what I would refer to as Imperial measurement.

In other words they use measures in weight based on Pounds, Ounces and Drams.

There are 16 Drams in an Ounce and 16 Ounces in a Pound.

The software that is on my computer is Microsoft Excel Version 5.0c

Creating Add-ins
I need some help about creating add-ins to distribute my macro.

I have written a macro and have saved it as an .xla file.

What i want is that when this add-in is installed an extra button appear on the menu bar and when users click the button the macro should run.

I tried to install the add-ins but am having some trouble in creating a button automatically when add-in is installed and assigning a macro to it?

I tried to look through some books and on some internet websites but really cant figure out.

Creating A Custom Button When I Install My Self-made Add-in
Finally after 3 days of intensive studying VBA, my first add-in pack is ready to be installed in the office. I've got my custom form all ready, now all I need is to have excel create a custom button on the toolbar that calls up my custom form when clicked.

The idea of assigning a shortcut key doesn't really appeal to me. I'll be packaging it up in .xla format. Would be greatful if anyone can direct me on how to add a button to call up my form (only one form in fact).

Creating An If Formula
I am trying to creat an IF formula for a spread sheet I am working on with information from Bloomberg. I am referencing sheet one to sheet two so I have that forumula in, but in some of the cells this symbol #N/A N.A. appears because some of the information is not available on Bloomberg. How can keep the referenc formula but also include a formula that basically says if #N/A/N.A. symbol appears to replace it with just NA.

Creating Summation Formula Based On User Input.
I'm trying to create a formula similar to this: =sum(B7:B & 8*A2+3). What I want the formula to do is start in B7 and go to B###. The cell number is based on user input. So if the user enters "24" in cell A2, then 8*24 = 192, 192 + 3 = 195, so the formula would be: =sum(B7:B195). Can I do this in a cell, or do I need to run it in a macro?

Creating A Formula To Calculate A Result That Depends On 3/4 Criterias Been Met
Firstly its probably best you download the file from below and open it up.

I need a formula to put in cells in column S on sheet March.

It needs to match up the correct price from sheet 'Container Price List'.

The price that should be displayed depends firstly on the account number, container and waste stream all matching to decipher which line the price is on. Then the price displayed should be the price in the column called 'exchange charge' however if this is 0 it should be the price in the column called 'rental charge'.

So for example, if you look at row 27 in sheet 'March' the price displayed would be 80.39. The formula will look at the account number 'c028' on sheet 'March' and match it to the any of 'c028' on sheet 'Container Price List'. It will then look at the container in sheet 'March' which is RL14 and match it with the ones that are RL14 in sheet 'Container Price List'. Then it will look at the Waste Stream in sheet 'March' which is GEN.C and match it with the GEN.C in sheet 'Container Price List'. The result given should be the exchange charge in sheet 'Container Price List' which in this case is 80.39.

If for example the exchange charge displayed 0.00 then the result given should be the rental charge in sheet 'Container Price List' instead.

Formula To Handle 5 Fields Of Data To Avoid Creating Extra Columns?
I am inputting 5 variables in columns A through E:

Family (Y/N)
Adult (1/0)
Child (1/0)
Date of Birth

I am attempting to generate:

Age Males in families sorted into age brackets
Age Females in families sorted into age brackets
Age Males single sorted into age brackets
Age Females single sorted into age brackets

I did this rather simplistically generating 4 columns (F through I) and then using COUNTIF (although I know there is a better way than the lame way I used COUNTIF but that is not the point right now).

However, my question is, can I generate the data described above (located in D13:I22 on my spreadsheet) without going through the messy, cumbersome step of creating extra columns?

Creating A Customized Accumulative Code Week (modified WEEKNUM) Formula
My company uses a customized accumulative code week system, as in the year 2000 to today is about 442 weeks with the year 2008 starting around week 416.

Here is how my formula works(or how I would like it to work), if the date (in cell F8) is blank, nothing is displayed, if there is a date (format 2008-07-03) and it falls within 2008, WEEKNUM+416(416 is a fixed reference in J4), if the date falls within 2009, WEEKNUM+416(J4)+52, if the date falls within 2010, WEEKNUM+416(J4)+104. I only need it to go from 2008 to 2010.

This way J4 is a fixed code week reference where 416 is added to each week number, but it does not work for years 2009 and 2010 as it does not add the weeks from the starting reference.

Here is a copy of my formulas:

Formula- If Between Add
I am having a few issues stringing along a formula.

A1 5

I need A2 to say "If A1 is between 0 and 2 add 0, if greater than 2 but less than 4 add .30, if greater than 4 but less than 6 add .70 and so on.

A2 looking at A1
if 0 through 2 add 0
if 2 through 4 add .30
if 4 through 6 add .70
if 6 through 8 add 1
if 8 through 10 add 1.3
if 10 through 12 add 1.6

Basically these are employee break times that I need to automatically figure into our labor hours. Every 2 hours they get "x" amount of break time. So if they have over 2 hours of work they will get 1 break, if they work over 4 hours then I factor in a lunch and the previous break ect..

Insert A Row And Add A Formula
I have a spread sheet that I need to insert rows into and then in those same rows, add formulas that display percentages compared to the grand total row. To make it a little more complicated, this spread sheet changes from day to day, so the rows and columns will be different each time. So the code will have to recognize text, then insert the row, then do the formulas in the blank row. The only constant will be that it will always start on Row 5. I have no idea how to start or begin to do this, so I attached a file with a page showing where I am at as an example, and then anther page showing what I want ....

Formula To Copy Down But Add Rows To It
Is there a way to create a formula to add for instance 4 rows to it. I am brining figures from a worksheet titled std inventory to another worksheet. The std inventory worksheet is set up by weeks with 4 lables. So the figures I want to bring in for weeks ending are in increments of 4 rows. For instance I am working on a sheet which I am inputting formulas which read:
= 'std inventory'!M50

My next formula down I want to input would be
= 'std inventory'!M54

Is there a way to copy and paste special this formula but have it add the 4 rows on easily?
So the next formula would be

Add Condition To Simple Formula
Using Excel 2003. I have a very basic SUM formula I am using to show how many forms are still in-house. Pretty simple.

Column D is how many came in.
Column F is how many were completed.
Column E is what is left.

To get the daily count I take the previous day's Column E, add to today's Column D and subtract today's Column F.

Puts the results in E3.

This formula is copied on down the worksheet which results in:
=(E3+D4-F4), with the results in E4. And so on down Column E.

The problem is that if there is no data entered in Column D or F, the results from E are carried (copied?) as far down as the forumla. i.e., if today's column E results in 4, then that is displayed for as far down as I have copied the formula. What I'd like to do is set the formula so that if there is no data in columns E or F, then there is nothing displayed in Column E.

Using Wildcards Within Formula (add Together Will Change)

Is there a way to use this formula, but instead of looking in Column B, and having to list 00.00.01, 00.01.01, that it only looks at the last two digits of the ##.##.##.

Here is the issue. Each month, the numbers that make up what I need to add together will change. However, all I am really doing, is combining any accounts that have the same sub account (Column B) ending in the same digits of either 00, 01, 02, or 08. So I could have 01.01.01, 01.00.01, 01.02.01, etc. and I am just focusing on the .01 on the end. I would like to say, look at all the sub accounts in B, and only add (G:G) on those that the last two digits equal .01.

this is what i have so far...

target = Cell.Address
Cell.FormulaR1C1 = "=INDIRECT(CONCATENATE(BackEnd!E15,""!"",target))"

but this is the answer I am getting in the first cell of the range...

=INDIRECT(CONCATENATE(BackEnd! 'E15',"!",target))

as you can see I am having trouble getting the target address to lock in. To make things worse, its needs to be in " " so the concatenate creates the corect address link.

Multiple Plus Formula: Add Scores Of Which There Are None
I have a grid set up to add scores of which there are none. The boxes each have a formula, ie: =IF(FIXTURES!D1="","",FIXTURES!D1 ) this produces a blank square until a score is registered. At the end of each column, down and across there is a formula for adding up the scores. Downwards is: = SUM(C2:C25), this works fine.

Across however is: =B3+D3+F3+H3+J3+L3+N3+P3+R3+T3+V3+X3+Z3+AB3+AD3+AF3+AH3+AJ3+AL3+AN3+AP3+AR3+AT3+AV3 This doesn't work, just gives the answer TRUE. It did work before the original formula was added.
