DATE Function & IF Function (return A TRUE Or FALSE Based On A Date In A Cell)

Dec 8, 2009

I am trying to return a TRUE or FALSE based on a date in a cell.

for example:

if cell A1 = 07/11/2009

I want A2 to show TRUE or FALSE if A1 is 14 days or more behind todays date.

I have tried stuff like:

=IF(A1=TODAY()-14,"True","False")

but it just always says false. EDIT: I have just noticed that if I change the date in A1 to exactly 14 days behind todays, it returns TRUE. So, it does work. Do I need to add a GREATER THAN in there?

I'm trying to determine if a rangeName is defined so that I can delete it without a programming error. I've used the idea that if I try to goto a non-existant rangeName, I'll get an error. I've tried to design a function that will return true or false if the rangeName is defined on the basis of that idea. Can you take a look at the code and see where I went wrong?

I need to check one column to see if it is less than another one If it is I need to have the IF function return specific criteria for true and then for false but then I also need it to rely on the results of another question from another column if the result of the first query is less than the figure in another column again I need to return specific criteria for tur and then for false An AND function requires both to be true but when one isnt what do I write?

how return a true/false based on a cell containing a string (text) vs a value?

I have a column where most cells are blank, some contain text, and others contain dates. I would like to select and manipulate only the ones that contain dates (or values).

I would like to create a qestionairre with checkboxes used to answer the question "Do you need____" (Check if yes). On the following workbook I would like a list of all items needed, and a list of items not needed on yet another workbook.

Is there a way to create these lists without having blanks for values that are not true? (and because Im sure there is HOW?)

This is probably quite a simple request but here goes:-

=SUM(h2,e2-f2)

I would like excel to perform this calculation but only if another cell contains a date. I couldn't figure out how to do that so I added another column next to that cell and added =ISNUMBER(A8) to return a true or false statement. I was then going to hide this column but still refer to it.

transaction cleared amount amount balance date date in out A B C D E F H 1 $500.00 BALANCE BROUGHT FORWARD 2 1/1/10 TRUE 1/2/10 TRUE $5.00 =SUM(h2,e2-f2) 3 1/2/10 TRUE FALSE $300.00 =SUM(h3,e3-f3) 4 5 6 7

I don't know if this makes sense of if anyone can suggest another way of working this out. New to excel so sorry if this is basic stuff.

I've been asked to adjust some thing with a worksheet someone else created. On the sheet labeled "Criteria" there is a list of dates and some formulas that use these dates. I can't figure out why the result of the formula is a number, i.e "0"; I thought it is supposed to return "TRUE" or "FALSE". If I insert a new sheet, within the same workbook, and insert the same formula, I get "TRUE" or "FALSE". For some reason, the "Criteria" worksheet doesn't return "TRUE" or "FALSE", it returns numbers. I just need to know why this is happening so I can replicate it in the new workbook I'm creating.

Is there a formula or VB code like the =TYPE() function that will return whether a cell contains a FORMULA? Here's the issue:

I'm writing a macro to update 10,000 sheets. Each sheet has a column that I'm updating with a new formula. Some of these formulas have been previously overwritten with a random number that would delete the formula from the cell. I have to leave the overwritten values where there is no formula, and replace the values of the formulas where they are still intact. I assume that if I can identify whether there is a formula in the cell or not, I can choose that cell to skip or update.

I am trying to use the IF function to return a false value if the combined sum of a row is not the same as either of the 1st 2 cells. If that makes any sense!

This is the formula I would like to use. =IF(SUM(g3:g9)=g1 or g2 then y if true and x if false. I thought it would be easy but I can't figure out how to do it

a column contains dates in date format, contains a date before the column b date b column contains today() I want c column to get some output, if b-a is more than 5 years (exact days), say 20 do , if b-a is more than 2 years and less than 5 years, say 40 do , if b-a is less than 2 years , say 60 otherwise blank use if condition to get the above results. I have formatted a, b with date formats

Anyone know why the NETWORKDAYS() function will return a value of 1 if the start and end date are the same? Does the function always assume that the start_date is at 12:00AM and the end_date is at 11:59PM, because it seems to also show that there are 3 days between 11/04/08 and 11/06/08.

I am working with a fiscal year that starts in December and ends in November. I want to make a user defined function that will return the fiscal year of a date. I've created the below code, but it returns a zero.

Function FiscalYear(DateFY)

If Month(DateFY) = 12 Then Year (DateFY) + 1 Else Year (DateFY) End If End Function

I have created a userdefined function. the Idea is for the user to calculate the difference in hours and minutes. The input would be like budtime = 30 , realtime = 1.25 the answer I would like to have is 28:45 (28hours and 45 mins). Im aware that I can format the cell manually with [h]:mm but I'd like the function to do it. I have written this:

Function RT(BudTime, RealTime) RT = Format(((CDec(BudTime) - CDec(RealTime) / 24)), "[h]:mm") End Function

I am trying to Sum lines of info with "True or False" and "Yes and No". I would like to assign 1 to True and Yes and 0 to False and No when I total the rows. Never tried this in Excel, on Lotus and the formula does not work. I can find and replace, but I would like to be able to use a formula.

I have a master spreadsheet which shows agreeed rentals for vehicles, on the sample this is the "OCS" tab. I receive a spreadsheet which contains the actual rental charged, in my example this is the tab "Invoice" in my example the VRN are in the same order on both sheets, in reality the invoice spreadsheet is not in the same order as my OCS sheet. My task is to match the VRN field in the invoice sheet to the VRN in the OCS sheet, then look at the amounts and if they match then return "true" if they don't return "false

Group Name / Data A / .01 A / .02 A / -.02 B / .05 B /-.01 C /.02 C /-.03

I need one true or false return for each group if the absolute value of the differences in any combination of a group's data is greater than or equal to .05.

I am trying to find the starting effective month for a workyear. The criteria for the selected month is that the data BEFORE the effective month is all zeros. I manage to get the result if the data AFTER the effective month is ALL non- zeroes. If there is any zero, the data fetch will be inaccurate due to the COUNTIF formula. Is there any other way or formula that will enable me to get the result. File attached for testing and reference

I have two price lists in workbook. One containing "normal" price list, other containing "action" prices.

I want to search for a product name code from column A in "normal" price list in column A of "action" list, and if it is found to show it somehow in any column in "normal" price list sheet.

This way I know that there is action price attached to that product and that I have to search for the price in "action" sheet.

I have several rows with numbers that is either 0, a balance or a text like n/a. I need a formula that return true if all are 0 or contain n/a. If there is one balance shall it be false. Any suggestion? See example:

name | doc date | doc value a | 2009/01/01 | IN111 b | 2009/02/04 | IN222 c | 2009/02/05 | IN333 a | 2009/01/05 | CN111 d | 2009/03/01 | IN444 b | 2009/03/01 | CN222 a | 2009/04/01 | IN555

Firstly, I need to find the LAST DOCUMENT DATE for "a" where #doc_value starts with IN*** (invoice). Manually, I can see that it would be "2009/04/01", but my spreadsheet runs 6000+ entries. I need a function to do this.

Secondly, I need to find the corresponding #doc_value for that date (in this case, IN555).

I have number data in columns F through AK. In column AL I want a formula that will look in columns F through AK from the left to right. Once it identifies a positive value I want the formula to identify if after that positive number there are any occurances where there are 6 0's in a row (anywhere up until column AK). The formula can return a True or False. I want to drag the formula down across many rows of data. If the entire row contains 0's, I do not want it identified as a TRUE
