Formula To Show Current Grade Of Student

I would like to have a student's current overall grade be automatically calculated and displayed as I enter the test scores and extra credit points over the semester, first in percent and then in letter grade.

I have it set up so that the percent is calculated based on the total number of points likely to be obtainable at the end of the semester. But if they have only taken two tests and one extra credit assignment, it takes the total of those and divides it by the semester's total possible, instead of just the two tests and extra credit total possible. (ps: I do not know how many extra credit columns or number of possible points I will have this early in the semester)

Also, how then do I set up a formula to translate that percentage into a letter grade based on A=90-100, B=80-89, etc.?

LOOKUP With AND Requirements (lookup A Particular Student's Grade In A Particular Assignment)
I'm making my own gradebook (attached) and one of my sheets will list scores for each student in different assignments. I have one sheet which keeps track of all students and all assignments with other info. I would like to program cells in one sheet (the third in the attached file) to lookup a particular student's grade in a particular assignment. I figured trying a LOOKUP with an AND requirement might work but it keeps returning the message "could not find value".

My formula references the student's name and the assignment from the identifying cells so that it is easy to copy and paste. I wondered if it was this which resulted in the error, but doubt it.

Formula Show The Grade Average As The Year Progresses
I have a very basic Excel Gradesheet that's designed to simply record letter grades, and show the grade average as the year progresses. I've hit a snag with problem in the formula which shows a grade of "F" - when the grade range can only be that shown on the table (A+ to E-). I've attached the Excel sheet so you can see what I mean.

Calculate Final Grade Based On Grade Table
my Excel teacher doesn't even know how to do this! The chapter is Working with Multiple Worksheets and Workbooks, and we went into linking workbooks, linking worksheets, using the VLOOKUP function, and saving workbooks as templates. This is Case Problem 2 and i'll attaching the file.

It says:

1. On the Grading Criteria worksheet, enter the text "Exam Average" in cell A1
and the text "Grade" in cell B1.

2. In the range A2:B6, create a lookup table for the range of grades specified by Professor Templeton. (Hint: Each letter grade should be matched up with the lowest score possible for that grade.)

Here are the specified grades:
0 to 49 = F
50 to 59 = D
60 to 74 = C
75 to 89 = B
90 to 100 = A

3. Insert a formula in Column E of each worksheet to calculate the overall score of each student based on the grade table you entered in the Grading Criteria worksheet.

Change Letter Grade To Number Grade
I have a range of cells C11:C29,G12:G18,G20:G23,G25:G26,G28:G29,C33:C42,G33:G42,C46:C47,G46:G47,C51:C54,G51:G59,C58:C59 that contains letter grades (egs. A+,C- etc). I need the code for a macro that checks each cell from this range and if the value of the cell is A+ then the cell's value changes to 100, if the cell's value is A then change the cell's value to 98, if cell's value is B+ then change to 88 ...and so get the idea (i will complete the rest of conditions but i just need the basic code).

Entering A Formula To Determine A Grade
I would like to prepare mid-term grades for my history class, and have three categories, which I would like to insert into a spreadsheet to calculate the grades, as follows:

Mid-term 1: 30%
Mid-term 2: 40%
essays: 30%

each of the three grades is a number from 1-100; the final answer will be a number which I can then convert to a letter grade.

I'm just not sure what function to use, in that last column, to get Excel to calculate the final answer/grade.

Let's just assume that Mid-term 1 is in column A; Mid-term 2 is in column B; and the essay grade is in column C. How can I create a function that will allow me to give the above percentages to the respective assignments, when calculating a grade?

Making A Grade Book--- Missing Assignments Formula
I have a decent working knowledge of excel, but I'm stuck... I teach and I have created an excel spread sheet to help me keep track of grades, attendance, etc.
I'm trying to figure out how to get excel to figure out the assignments a student has missing (cells with no data input), then take the assignment name (column title with missing data) and students name (first column of data) and put that information in another worksheet. Basically I would like excel to tell me what students are missing work and what assignments they are missing so I don't have to scroll through hundreds of lines of data whenever I have midterms or a student wants a list of "missing assignments". BTW---I can get it to list the number of assignments a student has missing, but not list the specific assignment titles.

I know theoretically this is possible, but I'm having trouble figuring out how to do it. Any help would be appreciated as it will save a lot of time and help out my students! If you can give me a "fake" formula, I should be able to update it for my purposes...

Show Current Row Columns UserForm TextBox Controls
I have a spreadsheet that has a userform attached to it with text fields that enter additional data regarding each record. The userform takes these additional 5 fields and inserts them back into the spreadsheet, the final information to be exported back into Access. ( There are of course other ways to do this, but this is how my supervisor wants it done!)

My problem is that now that I can scroll through the spreadsheet without closing the userform, the userform doesnt show the current row's information as I scroll or change rows on the spreadsheet. It will only show the information that was in the row that it was on before i switched back to spreadsheet.

If there isn't, I will have to create a VBA program to update the hyperlinks, and will therefore have additional questions about that shortly.

Formula: Calculate The Weeks Cover Of Current Inventory
Calculate the weeks cover of current inventory based on a sales forecast. the forecast is in weekly buckets so I was thinking using some form of loop statement within the function which basically starts with the inventory figure then subtracts the forecast week by week until the inventory figure is less than the weekly forecast. I should then be able to divide the inventory by forecast and add back the number of loops to give me the weeks stock figure.

I have done this using if statements but it will only allow me to use 10 statements in the function and I need to do this for a full years worth of forecast.

Does anyone have a suggestion as This problem is becoming quite frustrating.

Here's an example of how the spreadsheet looks

Automatic Current Date Formula Extracts From Specific Cell
formula that can automatically use the current month date to extract information from other cells on my spreadsheet.

For example: This formula should be located in cell C6. Cells D6, F6, H6, J6, L6, N6, P6, R6, T6, V6, X6, and Z6 (these cells correspond to the months of the year, January to December respectively) contain the values I need. The month names are labeled above in row five.

Let's say the current month is March, I need the formula in C6 to automatically know that it is the month of March and to pull the information from cell H6 (which is the March cell). Then when April comes along, it will know that it is April and to only pull the information from cell J6; and so on until the end of the year.

Conditional Formatting Grade Letters
About conditional Formatting and relative referencing.

I need to change the colours of the cells depending if the pupil is meeting, over or under acheiving thier target grades.

I've got as far as highlighting the grades and using the formula in conditional formatting =ISTEXT(C7:C14) to display if the pupil is meeting their target grade.

I am aware that i will need to use relative referencing but am unsure how.

Its quite mind boggling to find out a way to see if they are over aceiving/under acheiving.

Turning Grade % Into Letter Grades

I created two columns, one with what the grade entails (93-100 , 90-93 and so on) and the next column has A, A-, etc. But I can't get vlookup to work, any suggestions? I am pretty noob when it comes to excel.

Assign Consistent Letter Value To Grade Percentage
Newbie here. I have a very frustrating problem. I am using excel for my gradebook at school. I've tried several different ways to assign a letter grade to an number average. It works fine each different way I do it, VLOOKUP, IF, etc. But, I have about 5 grades out of 100 which give the wrong letter grade. For instance, my scale says that a grade of 85 should be lowest limit of a "B", but I get a "C" returned in the cell instead. Like I said, it only happens on a few grades. The biggest majority work fine. I can't figure out why. Any ideas? Attached is one of the "problems" with a student's grades. Note the Final Avg with a grade of "C", it should be "B".

This works fine the only problem is in shows a minus number until the hours for that month have been entered so I cant create a total column, is they any way to get these numbers to show 0 until the times are entered?

Formula To Show A Change In A Row
I'm working through a huge file and trying to compact it down and make it more workable. I've already managed to get it down to what i need but i now need to add a few things so others can work it more easily also.

One of the ideas i had was the following, but for the life of me i dont know where to start.

The spreadsheet will be updated on a daily basis and at the end of each week we will need to submit any changes we've made to the marketing team.
However the change tracker thats built into excel isn't really what i want.

What i though was i should set up an IF formula that would return a True value if any data in that row was changed.
Then i could set up a macro to copy those rows only to a new sheet to be sent to the marketing team, this way the structure of the spreadsheet would be kept to make it easier for them.
