Formula's Keep Disappearing- Formula Does The Calculation And Then Disappears

I have a very large spreadsheet which holds a lot of data, and has a custom reports system built into it, (i.e. running on a load of macro's)... The reports gather their info from a range of hidden cells which run different formula's to provide such results as 1 or 0 so that it collates into another sheet...

however, I have found recently that when I need to update any of the formula's and whatnot, the formula does the calculation and then disappears... whereas I need the formula to be there constantly so that the report is providing the correct information!

one such formula is:

=IF(AND(AC11"No Calc",AC11>=1,AC11

Macro-created Formula Disappears Without Pattern
On a sheet, I have a Worksheet_change sub that checks if the cell changed is in column 1, 10, or 19 and if it is, then the six cells to its right are filled with formulas I need. All formulas work, except for one. I've checked over and over again and the formula itself works fine - the coding behind it is exactly what it's supposed to be.

But for some reason sometimes the formula isn't put into the cell. I haven't found any pattern yet with this problem. Even stranger is that the formula is identical to one in another column before (which is also entered by the macro) and the other one has never disappeared yet. I'm setting both formulas with the abc.FormulaR1C1 property (I don't use the abc.Formula property to avoid having to write three different formulas - one for each possible column change).

Formula For Deleting A Formula When The Formula Has Done Its Calculation
I was wondering if there is a formla that will delete a formula when it has done its calculation, or stop the formula from constantly updating.

I've got a formula


When something is typed in Cell A1 the cell with the formula will input todays date.

Is there a formula that will stop this formula from updating, as when you go into the file on a different day the date would have been updated.

Calculation Of Time Formula
I am trying to calculate the response time between when a phone call comes into my workplace and when the responder calls back...I have created a formula that does this using the times and dates of when the calls were recieved and went back out. This works except when the call comes in on one day and goes back later in the day the next day, making the response time larger than 24 hours. I also have it set up to eliminate 15 and a half hours from the calculation because our place of business is not open during this time. Further details....

Need Assistance With Average Calculation Formula
I get a "#value" error message when I utilize the formula noted below. I seperated it into distinct sections so that it is easier to view. Basically, what the formula is doing is determining whether if two values are the same, then take the absolute difference of the average of other values ,excluding one of the previously noted values, and compare that difference to a different parameter. If the difference does not exceed the parameter, then calculate the difference; otherwise the ending result is zero. Pls. note that the error seems to occur when I input the fifth section into the formula.

Formula/Function For Commission Calculation
I put in excel an employees gross fees for a month,, their commission calculation is based on the following scheudule, for which i'd love an easy calculation, function, code etc. for..

$0 - $10,000 - 60% commission
$10,001 - $15,000 - 65% commission
$15,001+ - 70% commission..

i'm sure this seems simple, but i just can't get it because if for instance their first gross fee is $12,000, i don't know how to have it calculate the first $10,000 at 60% and the last $2,000 at 65%. any help is greatly appreciated..

ps.. my excel sheet is set up as follows:
Rows a-g (stuff that is irrelivant)
row h, gross fees
row i, commission (in dollars)

No Calculation Flag, And Percent Formula
1. In neighborhoods that have zero units in a given price range I have it to display "-" , because this unit is not actually zero, the data is not available. Therefore a #VALUE! is displayed for the percent because it cannot calculate the "-". How do I get excel to glance over "-" and flag it for no calculation?

2. For the percentages I am having to manually do them row by row. I would like to set it up in a manner that allows me to copy the formula down by column and across by row correctly.

For instance in the percent for Mira Lagos I have =B4/N3 where b4 is the units for mira lagos and n3 is the total. I can drag that formula across by rowto get all the correct percentages for mira lagos price ranges only, but I cannot copy this formula down by column to any of the other neighborhoods. In otherwords I have to do a new formula for each subdivision.

Grand Peninsula=B5/N3
Meadow Glen(Mansfield)=B6/N3

Again I would like to make it so I can copy the formula across by row and down by column so excel will automatically compute it.

Declining Balance Calculation Formula
I need to locate/write a formula that can calculate the declining balance on revolving interest loans, such as a credit card. The formula needs to calculate the number of remaining monthly payments based on a stated interest rate and payment amount (i.e., present balance $2000, annual interest rate 18.99%, payment $60 per month). And then, if possible, the formula also needs to translate the answer into a definite Month and Year going forward from today's date (or calculated in another cell of the worksheet for display).

In essence the formula would begin as

(2000 + (2000 * (.1899/365)) * 30) - 60 =

then repeat the calculation using the answer above, and so on, until the original principal amount had declined to $0, and finally count the number of months it do to get there. This is essentially a mortgage type of calculation.

I know I could write the formula repeatdly one month at a time across a few hundred/thousand cells, but there must be a more economical way to do so.

Formula- Working On A Spreadsheet To Control The 'booking Diary'
I've been working on a spreadsheet to control the 'booking diary' at work and linking it with the movements in and out of our 'chambers'

If you look at Column L & M, they are the volumes and column N is where the 'pallet' is coming / going to .

If you look at line 149 and below I've tried to translate these 'volumes' into movements by time but as you can see it is not to totalled up correctly during certain times.

For example line 158 should total 40 and line 187 should total 80.

Can anyone work it out for me as this happens on numerous lines

Rank Calculation (with Correction) In Array Formula
I'm trying to calculate the sum of rank vlaues in an array formula (required for a Mann-Whitney U-test calc). For example, I have the results of a survey quesiton (1-5 rating) with particpant groups of Sales, Marketing & Other. I want to sum the Ranks of the data points that come from Sales or Marketing (but not Other). The added complexity is in the need to add in the Rank correction value to account for ties.

The conditional arrays are the tricky part. I'm very close, but the array formula is still including the Other values. If I delete those data points the formula works great. For those with strong stomachs, I've copied my latest formula below.

$C$% = "Sales" and $F$5 = "Marketing"...

={SUM(IF('Survey Data'!$D$3:$D$30=$C$5,RANK('Survey Data'!$W$3:$W$30,IF(OR('Survey Data'!$D$3:$D$30=$C$5,'Survey Data'!$D$3:$D$30=$F$5),'Survey Data'!$W$3:$W$30))+(($M115+$N115)+1-RANK('Survey Data'!$W$3:$W$30,IF(OR('Survey Data'!$D$3:$D$30=$C$5,'Survey Data'!$D$3:$D$30=$F$5),'Survey Data'!$W$3:$W$30),0)-RANK('Survey Data'!$W$3:$W$30,IF(OR('Survey Data'!$D$3:$D$30=$C$5,'Survey Data'!$D$3:$D$30=$F$5),'Survey Data'!$W$3:$W$30),1))/2))}

'greater Than >' Formula & Result
Column B is basically 550 points + column C = Base Roll.

We need to introduce a cap so no more than 1000 points can be displayed/earned. So column G adds all points & column F caps.

So far it's all ok.

Now when i add a value to column E (points spent) those points are deducted from column G instead of the capped 1000.

Entering a value of 500 displays 800 in column F instead of 500.

on other calculations. I need to find the first number that's closest to and
below 10. I also need to find the first number that's closest to and above
10. I need this for 3 other values (40, 50, & 90)as well, but if I can get
an example of a formula, I could probably go from there.

If Formula: Identify New Products That Are Not In My 'stocklist'
I am trying to identify new products that are not in my 'stocklist'. In the 'new prices' sheet I have =IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH(C4,'Stock List'!C:C,0)),"","NEW") dragged down in column G. Though its throwing out 'New' on every item which is incorrect as there are loads of items already in both sheets. This sounds confusing but if you look at the attached im sure you will see what im trying to do.

One last problem is that some of the new codes have zeros in front of them so the formula will have to discount the 1st couple of digits IF they happen to be zero. example; C5480 in stock list is exactly the same as C398 in new prices. But because there is a zero in front of the C398 then the formula does not recognise that the two are the same.

Formula To Count 12 Months Back For Finance Calculation
I have a spreadsheet that each month, we populate a new row of data. The rows are already set up in the spreadsheet, but we just populate the new row.

We are calculating a rolling 12 month total. Each month, we have to modify the formula below to pick up the last 12 months.

For example, next month we will populate data into cell M91, then we need to manually modify our formula to read M80:M91. Wondering if there is a way to have the formula below to look at a range, such as M100:M1, and count the last 12 months? This would eliminate us having to change this each month on several spreadsheets.

In Summary: I would like to replace the M79:M90 to count the last 12 months instead of changing the formula each month.

Formula Structure: The Total Fees (H2) Is A Part Of The Calculation
I am attempting to calculate commission (J2) based on the data entered in cell D2
1. The total fees (H2) is a part of the calculation. It represents a value from .5% to a maximum of 3%.

2. If the Loan Description is specifically ‘80/20’ then 80% of the Loan amount is used in calculating the commission. (note: ‘80/20*’ is also a valid entry). Otherwise the total loan amount is used.

Loan Dsc. Int. DSCNT% Y-S-P% Fees Loan Amount Commission
80/20 7.52.0 1.0 3.0 $137,403 $4,122.09

I attempted this formula and obviously it’s incorrect:

Calculating Commission (J2)

=IF(H2=" "," ",=IF(D2="80/20",(I2*0.80)*(H2*0.01),I2 * (H2*0.01))

1. If H2 is blank then TRUE enter a blank
2. FALSE: H2 contains a fee rate then calculate the commission Commission Calculation: If the Loan Description is 80/20 then take 80% of the loan amount and multiply it by the rate fee amount (as a percentage) to get the commission. If the Loan Description is NOT 80/20 then use the whole loan amount in the calculation.

How To Create A 'dynamic' Formula

In the Summary sheet column A, I have the sheet names:

In column B, (let's use B5 as an example) I want a formula that reads
something like:
=B4 + Apr05!C7

This seems simple enough, but how can I write a formula that 'automatically'
enters the sheet name (i.e. "Apr05") in the formula?

The row containing the data for Apr05 is only created when that month comes
along, in order to keep the file size as small as possible at any time.

Formula Calculation To Be 1 Of 2 Values & Increment Cell Based On Result
I'm quite a novice at Excel. I have a column of values that I sum as follows;


0 <----------------sum of A1:A5

A formula may change one of the values in the above column to a '1' which means the sum will become '1'. The sum can only be '1' or '0' and only one value in the column will ever change. I need to add a value of 2 to another cell (say, C1) when the sum of A1:A5 changes from a value of '0' to '1'. I know this will probably involve the worksheet change event but am having a problem implementing it.
