# Excel 2003 :: Cells Not Calculating Correctly

Dec 19, 2013
I am working in Excel 2003. I consider myself a little more experienced than a beginner, but not quite an intermediate. My problem is, I am doing percentage changes comparing the average year-to-date data of 2009 through 2012, and then I am attempting to get the percentage change of the current year-to-date data to the average of the aforementioned years.

I took an average of these numbers, that are pulled from other worksheets. The cells are set as "General".

112241 = 1.833333333 or rounded, 2 divided by 1 (the current year to date total), the result is -45%, which should be -50% decrease. The percent cell is set at percentage.

It appears the cells are not automatically rounding up.

I am having difficulty calculating the number of total overlapping days between several date ranges (6 of them to be precise)

I am using Excel 2003 and my data looks like this:

Sent Out (A) - Received (B)

01/06/2010 13:00 - 30/06/2010 13:00

02/06/2010 13:00 - 16/06/2010 13:00

09/06/2010 13:00 - 10/06/2010 13:00

21/06/2010 13:00 - 25/06/2010 9:44

23/06/2010 13:00 - 25/06/2010 10:56

23/06/2010 13:00 - 29/06/2010 13:00

I really can't wrap my head around the idea of calculating overlap (in network days) between six date ranges and was wondering if any of you would have a solution to this problem.

I am having difficulty calculating the number of total overlapping days between several date ranges for each item in another sheet which has unique items

I am using Excel 2003 and my data looks like this:

Sheet-1 Sheet-2

Item - Sent Out (A) - Received (B) Unique Item Number of days excluding overlap days

1234 01/06/2010 - 30/06/2010 1234 -

4321 02/06/2010 - 16/06/2010 4321 -

1234 09/06/2010 - 10/06/2010

4321 21/06/2010 - 25/06/2010

1234 23/06/2010 - 25/06/2010

4321 23/06/2010 - 29/06/2010

I have used the below formula found from the earlier post but need to add a condition calculating the days for each item.

=SUM(IF(MMULT((NETWORKDAYS(ROW(INDIRECT(MIN(INT(A2:A7))&":"&MAX(INT(B2:B7)))),2)<6)

*(ROW(INDIRECT(MIN( INT(A2:A7))&":"&MAX(INT(B2:B7))))>=TRANSPOSE(INT(A2:A7)))

*(ROW(INDIRECT(MIN(INT(A2:A7))&":"&MAX(INT(B2:B7))))<=TRANSPOSE(B2:B7))+0,ROW(A2:A7)^0),1))

In cell BQ65, I have 7:00 pm. Next to that, in cell BR65, I have 6:00 am. This should total 11.00 hours, yet with the formula I have in cell BS65, the result is showing up as 13.00 hours, so I'm ending up with two extra hours, which is not good.

Here's the formula I have in cell BS65:

=IF(ABS((((BR65-BQ65)*1440)/60))=0,"",ABS(((BR65-BQ65)*1440)/60))

I am trying to conditionally format the top middle and bottom thirds of a range of data. Problem is, that the range needs to be flexible as sometimes there may be a maximum of 36 cells with data, but sometimes there may be less (so there are blank cells in the range that need not be counted). The methods I have tried always include the blank cells, and so it is not equally formatting the thirds (as it includes the blanks cells as part of the bottom data)....

Here are the 2 methods Ive tried so far using excel 2003)

Top 34%:

=IF(INT(COUNT($D$3:$D$38)*34%)>0,LARGE($D$3:$D$38,INT(COUNT($D$3:$D

$38)*34%)),MAX( $D$3:$D$38))0,LARGE($D$3:$D$38,INT(COUNT($D$3:$D

$38)*67%)),MAX( $D$3:$D$38))0,LARGE($D$3:$D$38,INT(COUNT($D$3:$D

$38)*100%)),MAX( $D$3:$D$38))

Excel 2003 user.

I have a work sheet with numerous cells coded one of two ways. Either a color of red or a color of green. Is there anyway to count how many times green cells show up? etc..?

I know I'd need to know the exact color but it would save a lot of time as I need to find out how many cells are of each color.

I have a worksheet of data that has 12 columns of numbers (sourced from an external data source) that I have a subtotal for each row. I need the user to be able to hide columns that they do not want included in the subtotal. I have found references to Subtotal(109,D2:Q2) on the net that apparently does this but it doesn't make any difference whether or not I hide columns (I am not using filtering).

Does anyone know how to do this using a formula, (I would prefer to keep this a macro free worksheet)

I'm using Excel 2003. I've got two different .XLS files, each with multiple sheets.

I'm trying to create a macro which will copy a range of cells from one sheet on one .XLS file (which is closed) to a specific place on a specific sheet on the current .XLS file (which is open).

So for the sake of argument:

I've got two Excel files: C:ApplesOldFile.xls and C:OrangesNewFile.xls

OldFile.xls is closed -- NewFile.xls is open and in front of me.

I'm trying to copy the data in ranges B6:C41 and F6:F41 from Sheet2 in OldFile.xls to the same ranges on Sheet6 in NewFile.xls. There are no formulas in these cells -- just data (numbers).

I keep getting error messages, failures to copy to clipboard, etc.

I am trying to rename a row of cells with incremental names. Ex.

A1=Results1, A2=Results2, A3=Results3, ...., AN=ResultsN

Of course, it can be done by setting names for each cell separately but it takes ages. I would like to know if this is possible to do that quickly due to an add-in or VBA.

I use Excel 2003.

I have a sheet that column G and column H has duplicate values. I would like to be able to put a formula in a cell P4 that will search thru column G and column H and if there are any matching items then add the corrisponding number in column I.

So say cell G8, G25, and G30 have the same and H8 and H30 have the same value, i would like this to add the values of cell I8 and I30.

I am running a text comparison between customer names in 2 systems and although I can identify where they dont match I would like a bit more information as to what the differences may be:

See below sample data - 1 system may have Mr/Ms and middle initials whereas the other simply has the name is it possible to write a formula that will look at the cell and when it does not match identify the extra characters. Or if it totally doesnt match then just state incorrect.

A

System 1

System 2

I have two spreadsheets in Excel 2003.

Spreadsheet 1 has 10 columns of data (A-J). I want to copy a variable number of rows from spreadsheet 1 to spreadsheet 2.

When I paste into spreadsheet 2, I'd like to automatically insert blank cells in three places, taking the total number of columns to 13. I'd like columns C, F and I to be blank, and the last column with data to be M.

I will perform this task regularly, and add the copied cells to the bottom of spreadsheet 2, so I'd only like to insert blank cells within the range that I'm copying, not the entire spreadsheet.

I will then populate the blank cells with a VLOOKUP function. Do I need another macro to automatically add the formula to the cells, or is there a way to include this in the cell-inserting macro?

I have a worksheet which has various figures for each day of the week however I need to establish the weekly average of these figures.

Due to the way in which the figures are displayed, I am unsure how to use a formula which does not require a range with cells located adjacent to one another.

I have attached a test sheet as an example. The cells in yellow require the formula and I need a weekly average for criteria 1-3. This formula also needs to be compatible in Excel 2003

I have a dropdownmanu in sheet1 with different countries taken from Column A in Sheet3. I need a macro to run when i select a country example Denmark. It will fill out transmittal code and also country code in named cells for it in sheet1. Info taken from Sheet3

Transmittal code is in below testsheet in Sheet1 cell E12.

Country code is in Sheet1 cell.

But this have to be possible to change. Also the range for the country have to be possible to change.

This vba code i need to run as soon as i select a country in the dropdown manu.

But one thing i would like to solve also is. When i select a country it will create a dropdownlist in I13 taken from the info in column, i have in Sheet3 column F. So if i select example Denmark, it will show a dropdown menu in sheet1 I13, with the ledger codes 10 and 6x. I have tried to make this work but cant make it work good.

I use excel 2003. Please have a look and upload the testsheet back.

I am wondering if it possible to automate the copying of data from particular cells, based on a value in a different cell, into a different format.

So to go from this simplified table:

AB1NameLevel2Arthur2a3Briony3c4Catherine3b5David3a6Edward2a7Felicity3c8George3c

to something like this:

FGHI12a3c3b3a2ArthurBrionyCatherineDavid3EdwardFelicity

4

George

At the moment I do it all manually, and it takes forever. I am sure there must be a simple way of doing it. I am using Excel 2003, but could work in a newer version if required.

I can't seem to find a way to copy specific highlighted/selected cells in a filtered list column and paste them outside of Excel 2003. i.e. in Notepad.

It seems to copy all the data between what is selected.

My Filtered list shows rows 5, 28, 35, 40 and 56

If I selected A5, A28 and A40 and select copy

If I paste it into Notepad, it adds A5, A28, A35 and A40

However if I paste my selected copied cell into Excel it works perfect and only adds A5, A28 and A40.

I have three workbooks that contain various types of information. I have an Overtime workbook that lists employees and calculates the straight time and overtime worked for the day. This is the main log that information will be pulled from.

I need writing a macro that will copy over information to an Absent Log workbook and a Production Model workbook.

The Absent Log workbook:

This workbook contains worksheets from each month. I need excel to do a lookup of the name in the Overtime workbook and copy the information from the "OT" column but if that column is empty I need it to pull the information from the "Personal DT" column.

The Production Model workbook:

I need this workbook to automatically pull the total straight hours and overtime hours to the production model for the correct day. This will also pull from multiple sheets.

I am going to be writing this in Excel 2010 but it will be primarily used in Excel 2003.

I uploaded the workbooks to filefactory.

OT Workbook: [URL] ......

Absent "Log" workbook: [URL] .....

Production Model: [URL] .....

I have a workbook that has 30 tabs in it. Each tab is a report card for students. What I'd like to do is create another tab with a button on it that when I hit the button it will search through each tabs range of D12:D40, D48:D76, D84:D112, D120:D136, J12:J40, J48:J76, J84:J112, and J120:J136. And if any of these cells has an MS in them then this new sheet I have created will list each students name which is in cell E5 and list what they recieved the MS for. This will be in the same row number but in column B. So if cell D12 has an MS in it then this report will list the students name and what's in cell B12.

I am trying to do the following.

Monday=0

Tuesday=5

Wednesday=10

Thursday=0

Friday=5

Saturday=0

Sunday=0

Averages

Monday=0

Tuesday=5

Wednesday=7.5

Thursday=0 (I have got a value return of 7.5)

Friday=5

Saturday=0 (I have got a value return of 5)

Sunday=0 (I have got a value return of 5)

I need to work out averages for cells higher than zeros, in other words, I need to ignore those.

Also say I have got an average of 5 by Tuesday and no number yet for the rest of the week, I still get an average of 5 for all days left which I do not want.

I am using excel 2003 and formula =SUM(RANGE)/COUNTIF(RANGE,">=0").

I would also like to hide the annoying #DIV/0! error.

I have the following code, which I used to search Column A for a date and then copy the adjacent cell next to the date and paste it to sheet2.

However what I want to do now is be able to enter just the month or the year and the code will find the cells that contain the same year or month that I entered. I know to find a string value in a cell I can use InStr() however I don't know how to implement this into the code that I have, As depending on the month that I select I want the code to put the value in a certain cell.

Here is the code that I have so far

Code:

Sub SearchMacro()

DateSearch.Show

Dim LR As Long, i As Long

With Sheets("Sheet1")

LR = .Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row

[Code] ......

How I can do this by edited the current code or any code for that matter.

In a large range of cells, how I can remove the single quote at the beginning of the contents of each cell? (without single quote they would be formulas). It didn't work using CTRL + L and trying to replace the single quote by blank applying this to the whole range. I am currently using Excel 2003.

Example:

cell a1 contents: '= IF (I17 = "----------", "----------", E17-C17)

cell a2 contents: '= IF (I18 = "----------", "----------", E18-C18)

cell a3 contents: '= IF (I19 = "----------", "----------", E19-C19)

....

etc., etc., etc.

I need a formula that returns the Nth number from a single column that contains a small number of values within a span of 1000 cells. E.g., within 1000 cells there are 36 with numbers and the remaining cells are blank. I need to obtain the first occurrence of a number in the column, then the second, third... to the thirty-sixth. The end result would be a column with 36 numbers with no blanks in between without loosing the correct order of the numbers.

I have excel 2003 and have been tooling around with the index and lookup functions with no success.

I am using Microsoft Excel 2003. My question is about calculating time. Let's say my answer, after calculating time, is 2 hours and 1 minute (2:01) and that answer is placed in cell A1. How would I be able to have only the 2 hours (2:00) carry over to cell A2 without the minutes showing?

I have tried =MOD(A1,24/24) and =TIME(0,HOUR(A1),0). I have also tried to right click the cell, went to Format Cell, went to the Numbers tab and tried the different options in the Time and Customs category, but I can't seem to get 2:01 to appear as 2:00 only.

I need to calculate the average spend on a day of the week over the month, so all Monday's or all Tuesday's, etc. One sheet is one week so I need to average b16 on 6 sheets as an example.

I used =AVERAGE('WEEK1:WEEK6'!B18) to calculate average over the six Monday's. The issue is, as in other posts, how do I ignore the cells that have a zero or null value.

I've tried adjusting this which was in 1 post

=AVERAGE(IF($C$2:$CA$2=C62,IF($C$25:$CA$25"",$C$25:$CA$25

with this

=AVERAGE(IF(1+1=2,IF('WEEK1:WEEK6 '!B180,'WEEK1:WEEK6 '!B18))) which returns #REF!

this from another post

=SUM('WEEK1:WEEK7 '!B18)/COUNTIF('WEEK1:WEEK7 '!B18,"0") which returns #VALUE!

and this

=AVERAGE(IF('WEEK1:WEEK7 '!B180,'WEEK1:WEEK7 '!B18)) which returns #NAME?

The cells on each sheet are sum formulas for other cells on the sheet not just numbers on their own.
