# Formula Result To Not Exceed Number

May 12, 2009I have a simple formula in a cell, just a sum of some columns. (=C6+H6) If the sum happens to be greater than 10, though, I want it to show as the number 10. How can I do this?

I'm preparing Quarterly Evaluations, and am having an issue because an Analyst has superseded an overall percentage goal. In the attached example, it is the overall evaluation with the 'problem data' in red D19 and highlighted.

I'd like to add a condition that limits the points in D19 for 'responsibility 3' to 150.

=IF(ISERROR(C19/B19)*(B10),"-",(C19/B19)*(B10))

*just a note for clarification, the other two responsibilities are a 'per hour' weekly goal, whereas the 3rd is an overall personal effort divided from the overall team effort.

I want to subtract column B from column A and put the result in column C. If the result is a negative I want a formula to turn it to 0.

At the moment in my column "0" I am referencing the number values in column CT from my access database (which gives me a standard retail price)

Code:

=IF(AF5="","",IF(OR('Line list'!CT2="",'Line list'!CT2=0,'Line list'!CP2=0),"0",'Line list'!CT2))

And then I use the following formula to work out the correct prices wholesale prices for different countries based on that.

Code:

=IF(AL5>1,AL5,IF(AK5

I'm looking to conditional format a cell/cells based on whether a formula result returns a whole number or not.

I don't want to include the formula in the sheet itself, just have that as the formula in the condition.

The formula will be along the lines of:

=IF(SUM(BB10/BA10)"a whole number",TRUE,FALSE)

My problem is, is that I don't know who to refer to "a whole number" in Excel formula language.

I am trying to make a column show the result of a formula as positive number only. Right now the column subtracts two other cells and displays the result. I am trying to make it show all the results, positive or negative as positive.

View 4 Replies View RelatedWhen I drag my VLOOKUP formula down a column in Excel 2010, the return value copies the formula result from the original VLOOKUP formula result. For example, if the first VLOOKUP returns a value of 0.5, I expect to see 0.5 or 1 in the cell below that one. However, I get 0.5 which is not the expected result for the cell below.

When, I click the fx on the cells below, the expected return values appear in the formula result. After I click OK, the expected formula results updates and now appears in the cell.

I'm not sure what is causing this issue. My computer was updated recently from an old machine to a new one. I have never experienced this issue before.

I have a range of values lets say in cell A1 to A5. In A7 is where I want to formula to the maximum value but if it exceed 100000 then only show 100000. I am trying to find out if it possible not to use the If Function to achieve the same result.

View 9 Replies View RelatedI'm trying to do a formula that references a cell and returns a different result dependant on the number in the cell being referenced.

For example I've said if A1 has a 3 in it then put the word TEST as the result, plus if it has a 4 put the word RESULT.

What I wrote as my formula is as follows-

=IF(A1=3,"TEST")+IF(A1=4,"RESULT")

It works fine when I only use one result but goes wrong when I add two. If I change the words I want to show to numbers it comes up fine but with words it just returns a Value error.

I created a simple auto numbering function whereby Cell A7 contained =Row()-6, and Cell A8 contained =(A7+1). I then shift, and pasted the contents of cell A8 until cell A600. My aim is to simply copy the increments of 1 - 600 into another column. However when i copy and paste i'm also copying the initial underlying formula ie: =( A?+1), Is there a way to copy the results, not the formula?

Scenario

I have a tracking sheet that tracks development of work to be completed by individuals.

I have a due date column that shows when the work should be completed.

Once the work has been completed, the user enters his completion date.

I have a formula that provides an overdue warning (Completion date – today’s date) and some conditional formatting.

Problem

When I copy the formula through all the cells in the column I get a number (example 39504) and this changes everyday.

How can I eliminate this being shown as it throws out my average development day calculation?

View 8 Replies View RelatedI have a spreadsheet whereby process activities can be attributed to the different staff members who complete the activity. Each activity is on a different row and up to three staff can be assigned to each activity, so for example if a level one employee sorts the mail on four out of five days per week I would attribute 80% contribution to the task to the level one employee. If a supervisor sorts the mail on a Friday I would allocated a 20% contribution to that staff group.

My question is how do I prevent someone filling in the spreadsheet from allocating a combined contribution above 100% to any task. This could be for example either putting a number in greater than 100% into one of the allocation columns or a total across up to three different columns above 100%.

The columns where I assign the percentage contribution are E,H and K. I would like to generate an error which says something like 'Cumulative staff contribution per process activity cannot exceed 100%.

I have an Excel file that is 590 MB and Excel is telling me that since there are over 1,048,576 rows in this file (which I understand is the row limit for Excel 2010), it will only open partially, up to that row amount.

Excel suggested I open up the file in Word, but that has been unsuccessful - Word gives me error messages and won't open the file. I've also tried converting the file to .rtf and .odt, but again, that doesn't work.

Is there any way to break this excel file down? I'm assuming that whoever created it could not have made the document more than 1,048,576 rows, if that is Excel's limit, but maybe I am wrong. The document is in date order from 2008 to 2011, but only 2008 will show, and I know the later years exist. It doesn't matter to me which program this file opens with, I just need the data.

Row totals exceed the limit for Excel 2003, so I have split the data into different worksheets by year.

Problem is, now I can't create a useful pivot table, i.e. using 'multiple consolidation ranges' reduces the field list to "Row", "Column", and "Value".

I have 26 columns in each worksheet (all identical structures); some are multilevel factors, some are variables - and the way these relate to each other is unknown as this stage, so I literally cannot have the dimensions reduced in the way Excel proposes with multiple consolidation ranges.

I have a count for each site for certain cloumn headers.

But i want to collate these so that if there is a 1 in the column the it will output it with the column header. But there are 10 column headers and I would like to get a result that has all the columns with 1 in.

eg:

a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q (Organic Suites) (Inorganic Suites)

sitea 1 0 1 0 1 1 0 1 0 1 1 1 0 0 0 0 (O1 O3 O5 O6 O8 OS) (I1 I2)

I am using the SUBTOTAL function, with reference value 4 to return the max value from a filtered list.

What I'd like to be able to do is return the values of cells on the same row of the returned max value. Effectively if I can extract, somehow, the row number of the row where the max value exists, then I can use that to get the rest, but I'm at a loss as to how to do this,

I work in a finance dept and we often need to divide our numbers into 12 months but I need to only work with whole numbers, not decimals. Is there a way for example of forcing either in a formula or with VBA code to get 10,000 to divide equally by 12 months? At the moment it comes out at 833.333333. What I want is something that randomly assigns 833 to any one of the 11 months of the year and for the other remaining month put in the difference which is 837 to get the total to add up to 10,000exactly.

View 9 Replies View RelatedI have been using the following formula to add time (hh:mm) in the last 28 rows (inclusive) of Column B into an adjacent cell in Column C (Column A is the date):

=SUMPRODUCT($B1177:$B1204)*24

It is becoming tedious to copy/paste the formula - Is there a formula that would define all cells in Column C to be the sum of the last 28 rows of Column B?

Is there a way to tell Excel to sum only up to a certain point? Like if A1 through AF equal 50, but I only want it to sum up to 40, to stop at 40?

Is there also a way to tell Excel using IF that if a statement evaluating a number is true or false, to return the value up until a certain number. For instance, if the value is 8 or less, then it should return that number, but if it exceeds beyond 8, say for instance 12, then if the value is 12, only return 8.

I've tried using the worksheetfunction.sumif route and couldn't seem to get the syntax correct. I'd prefer the worksheetfunction route, as I don't need the formula stored, but it would be great to have both of these pieces of code for reference online - I scoured Google, and the examples I found were pretty weak.

I've recorded the macro (hence the R1C1 references in the second example) and had it work perfectly, but when I replaced row references with my variables, it went back to displaying "TRUE." I'm including all the code here.

Variables:

expr = 3 to 38 (For loop)

startrow = the starting row for the reference data

endrow = the ending row for the reference data

thresh = minimum threshold (a number)

Syntax error here:

I have a simple formula that adds two numbers and divide the result by another number

K1: SUM(E1,F1) / H1

K2: SUM(E2,F2) / H2

K3: SUM(E3,F3) / H3

K4: SUM(E4,F4) / H4

K5: SUM(E5,F5) / H5

etc, etc

and then I average the results

AVERAGE(K1:K5)

etc, etc

When H1, H2, H3, etc is 0, it generates a #DIV/0! (since you cannot divide by 0)

I want a formula that I everytime a H1, H2, H3, etc is 0, I want to set it to a specific number H1, H2, H3, etc to 15.00

For example:

IF (H1 = 0, 15.00, sum(E1,F1) / H1)

If the number provided (H1) is 0, set it to 15.00, otherwise add the two numbers (E1, F1), and divide this result by the number provided (H1)

But this is where the problem is:

In every single cell that I have NOT yet provided information, it treats the BLANK cells as if it was 0, and has set every single cell to 15.00.

Its my first post in this forum. Hope you would provided me proper guide line to solve my problem

Suppose I have a column of numbers. such as

let for example

if I add

01010101

01211201

Now adding these numbers results in 03333333

whatever the possible groups, should be listed.

View 3 Replies View RelatedI know this is an easy one but I'm unsure why I can't easily modify a formula. The key event in this formula is "+190". Every time I change the value the formula no longer works. I've copied to another cell and the formula no longer works. My question is when you have a formula like this one if you have to modify how do you do it and keep the formula working.

(A4) is an assumption about how many months the average person will stay a member.

So if A4 = 6, (6 month membership assumption) how would I get Excel to output $1,000 (the result from A3) into cells B3 through B8

but then for instance if A4 = 3 (3 month membership assumption) it would only output the the $1,000 result from A3 into cells B3 through B5

So like A1 through A4 of...

$100

$1,000

would output $1,000 into B3 through B8

but

$100

$1,000

However now I want to ammend the formula a little and excel will only display the formula itself, not the result of the formula. I have tried CTRL ~ to turn on/off the show formula function but this makes no difference.

My reason for changeing the current formula is that I need to turn a 2 (numeric) to 02 (which can be either numeric or text). This is the new formula.

I am trying to do 2 things involving data validation. 1) Count the number of entries in a data validation dropdown list and display a result. 2) Use an If statement to pull the formatting from a cell into another cell.

An example would be if Cell A1="A", then show the drop down list associated with cell or sheet "!ryanB2". Alternatively, I would like to also display the number of entries in the drop down list.

I have a workbook consisting of 4 worksheets. Cell B5 in each of three of these sheets has the exact same formula (copy/pasted) referring to data in the other worksheet. In one of the three similar sheets cell B5 shows up as a blank. In the other two, this cell shows up as a zero.

Since the formula in each of these cells is identical, I figured the difference in the way the result showed up was a matter of cell formatting.

The cell format for each of the three is indicated as ‘general’. However, with one of these, the ‘sample’ shown when you view the cell format shows as a blank while the other two show the ‘sample’ as a zero (0). How can I go about making all three cells appear the same, namely a blank?

I have already an existing formula to get only the amount from the previous cell. From a6 to a30 it contains the word "11/05/09 press release $100", so in b6-b30 this is the formula. =IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("press",A6)),RIGHT(A6,LEN(A6)-FIND("$",A6)),"") until b30

the problem is in b6:b30 the 100's were not a number you have to copy and paste to other cells using paste special then values then click the smart tag and convert as a number to get all the total from b6 until b30.

Is it possible to use the IF formula and if the result is true, to run another formula and if the result is false put a "0" in the cell???

Here is an example...

In cell A1, I have an amount of money.

In cell B1, I have a quantity.

In cell C1, I want to use the following IF formula:

=IF(B1>0;((A1)*(B1)*0.15);0)

At the present time, when I do this, when the result is true, I see ((A1)*(B1)*0.15) in the cell instead of what that formula should give.
