# Formula Result To Not Exceed Number

## I 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 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.

IF Formula That References A Cell And Returns A Different Result Dependant On The Number In The Cell Being Referenced
I'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.

Formula Date Result Showing Number Not Date
I’m trying to resolve this issue and would appreciate some help.

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?

Copy Formula Result & Paste Value/Result Only
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?

Add Two Numbers And Divide The Result By Another Number
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.

Round Division Result To Whole Number
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.

How To Sum A Number List For Specific Result
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
01010001
01101010
01201211
01212122
02101201
00102101
00010101
01010001
.
.
.
I want to find the possible set (groups from these number) which adds up to a constant let 03333333
let for example
01010101
01211201
01112031
Now adding these numbers results in 03333333
whatever the possible groups, should be listed.

VBA SumIf Result; TRUE; Instead Of A Number
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:

Consolidating Multiple Worksheets :: Totals Exceed Limit For 2003
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.

Formula Cell Showing Formula Not Result
I 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.

How To Reference The Formula Not The Result
I am setting up a spreadsheet that we can use with EditGrid online so we can post it in Forums. These will be used to track contracts for NFL players. I have used multiple formulas to do this. The problem is that I need to do this for 32 teams over 10 years. So what I want to do is be able to have a master sheet and then just have the other 32 sheets pull those formulas from the master but use the info on the individual teams sheet. I'll give you some basics.

The first year starts out where you type in a players position, name, contract length and his rating. here is an example of one of my formulas. The very basic first one

'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.

Result Of Formula In Other Cells
Is there a function that gives the result of a formula is it was entered in another cell?

Formula - Different Apparent Result
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?

See Array In Formula As Result
I´m not sure if this is possible: if I have an array in a formula, for example ={A,23,1,O,6} is there a way that I can put "A,23,1,O,6" in the cell where the formula is? so that the result of the formula is a concatenation of the elements of the array?

Copying A Formula Result
copying a formula. Basically i want to paste special a formula result automatically.

I have a if function set up so when 2 days corespond then in the 3rd cell it records the value, however when ever the date changes the value disappears, i can keep the value u there by paste special but i would love to set this up as an automatic thing once a value is recorded it records the value and deletes the formula, or the value doesnt change when the date (thus the condition) changes...

Sumif Formula If The Value Is 0 I Need The Result To Be 0
The value in A1 can range from 0-10. If the value is 0 I need the result to be 0, if the value is 1-10 I need the result to be the number multiplied by 613.35 plus 29.35 for example =sum(1*613.35)+29.35 or =sum(2*613.5)+29.35.

Copying Result Of Formula
I have a formula that returns a string using the concatenate function. Now I want to copy the string to another cell without copying the formula. The string will become a record in a CSV file. I cannot figure out how to make what shows on the screen a label cell instead of a formula cell.

IF Formula And If The Result Is True
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.

SUMPRODUCT Formula- Getting #VALUE! Result
I'm trying to use the sumproduct formula to query 3 columns: I want it to look in column E for either a "P" "C" or an "A", multiply the corresponding numbers in column D and F, and put the sumproduct total in cell C5, D5 and E5 for each formula below. The problem is that I keep getting #VALUE! result. It's because some cells in the range have #N/A in them, but I can't control that.

Here is my formula:

=SUMPRODUCT(--(E9:E70="P"),D9:D70,F9:F70)

=SUMPRODUCT(--(E9:E70="A"),D9:D70,F9:F70)

=SUMPRODUCT(--(E9:E70="C"),D9:D70,F9:F70)

How can I use this formula if for example cells D15-17 have no values or are #N/A?

Display Formula In A1, Result In A2
I have a formula in A1 that I would like to execute from A2. I want the A1 to display the formula (so no "="), but I would like cell A2 to execute the formula in A1.

If A1 contains: "SUM(1+2)", how can I get A2 to display "3" without reproducing the formula?

A1: SUM(1+2)
A2: ????

I suppose I'm looking for something like this:
A2: ==A1
But, of course, that doesn't work.

If I do this it gets close:
A2: ="="&A1

But that returns "=SUM(1+2)" instead of executing the formula.

Get Legend Along With The Result Of A Formula
I'm working on an evaluating spreadsheet where I give for several items a rate of 1 to 3 and at the end it calculates an average rate. The average rate would range from 1 to 3 as well and their meaning is:

1 - poor
2 - average
3 - good

How can I work on the formula so when the result is equal 1, 2 or 3 it automatically gives in the cell right beside the related legend?

Getting The Total From The Result Of The Formula
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.

Formula In Same Cell As Result
I have a value in Cell A1. Now, I need to be able to enter a number into Cell A3 and upon hitting Enter (or clicking elsewhere), the number I just entered into Cell A3 needs to be replaced with the number I just entered multiplied by the number in Cell A1. For Example: Cell A1 contains the number 1.05. I type 2.50 into Cell A3 and upon hitting Enter Cell A3 reads 2.625.

I'm having trouble with the attached example. An earlier member solved the odd-even problem, but I'd only like it to calculate if there is data in columns B to G.

Having Macro Act Upon Formula Result In Cell
I have created a visual schedule for my team using Excel (2003, SP3 if that matters). Essentially, the user puts in pre determined 1-3 character codes in individual cells, and the macros I have act like a complex Conditional Formatting to keep the formatting neat and consistent throughout the sheet. The actual values are inputted directly into the cells though (this is pertinent to my question), and are things like "A" "M" "\$" and "TR"

I have a sheet for every day in a week. Since there are multiple team members on any given day, I have recently made another sheet which pulls a single Team Member's schedule Sunday through Saturday and displays their schedule for the entire week. I have used formulas (specifically VLOOKUP) to do this.

The problem that I am having though, is that the macros that I made to format the days of the week sheets, do not seem to recognize the result of the formulas in the individual Team Member's sheet, and thus do not format them as desired.

My macros are written to evaluate a cell's value via [ Range("example").value ] and will act upon it accordingly with more code. I am assuming that a [ Range("example").value ] would see a cells value as the text of the inputted formula, and not the result of that formula. Is there any way around this? or do I need to avoid the formulas all together and write in code to just copy over what I need?

(I hope this makes sense)

If / Vlookup Display Result Not Formula
Hopefully you will be able to help again. Is it possible to do a vlookup that references data on other tabs within the worksheet so that the result of the formula is in the cell not the formula.

So if my vlookup was =vlookup(a2,\$a\$1:\$b\$12,3,0) and the result was john smith i want just john smith in the cell. I know about copy and paste values but i was looking for a more automatic way. One that doesn't need intervention.

Formula Showing In The Cell But Not The Result
I have a formula in a cell and when I use the formula bar it shows me the correct answer but it doesn't show me it in the worksheet. Only the formula shows up.

The same formula could be another place in my worksheet and work fine.

I have tried changing format. Copying formula from another location and changing the information to fit my needs it won't show me the result.

Copy Formula Result As A True Value
Is there a way to copy a formula result as the actual value and not the formula,

I can do copy and paste using "value" option but would like an automated formula or code option if possible.

In the example, D4 copies C4, would like D4 to show "AB" and not the formula "=C4"

Cell Displays Formula Instead Of Result
=K18+Sheet117!K18

K18 contains the number 54.00, and on Sheet117 cell K18 contains the number 404.00.

Cell A1 displays the formula rather than the result, which should be 458.00.

Other similar formulas I have in this workbook return a result of 0 when I know there should be a significantly higher number. Then, the same formula used to refer to different cells will return what appears to be a proper result.

Array Formula Result In To Range
I have array formula {=row(indirect("1:5")} which is result to {1;2;3;4;5} and it look like a range.

And i want to insert this into formula COUNTIF at the range section
i'd try it, but it didnt worked.

(its look like insert array formula into range section of a formula)

Adding Sound To A Result From A Formula
I am trying to add sound to a cell where there is a result from a formula. I want to add a siren notification sound when a child achieves a club record for an athletics event. At present when a record is broken a formula notes a CR in the cell adjacent to the athletes result. I have searched the forums and found the below code which works. Firstly how do I change the beep to a siren (I have downloaded a siren from clipart) and how to I change the code to include cells D7 down to D30....

Formula Stop Displaying The Result
Workbook containing macros and formulas. The workbook will create worksheets automatically by macros and uses the same formulas in the worksheet. After creating the 10th worksheet these formulas stop displaying the result. They showed #N/A but in actual there supposed to have a values in each of the cells. By manually clicking the formula bar and pressing enter these values will appear.

Result In The Formula Editor Box Is Wrong
I can't seem to tell if my formula isn't correct in concept, or if this is a known problem with Excel 2000?

I have written a short formula that is pretty straightforward, but is giving a different result in Excel's "Formula Editor" box (when you hit the = button) than is showing in the cell itself. The Formula Editor's result is showing as "TRUE" which is what I believe is the correct value, but the cell itself is showing the "FALSE" result of a different incorrect value.

Lookup Formula Result Corresponding Data
I have all my data on sheet 2 which contains tables that relate to information on regions, manufacturers, etc so it can be a large amount of tables which will change from month to month depending on a monthly list.
For example, if “Region 1” is in cell B134 – the resulting data I need to pull out will be contained in C138:G232 ...or ”Region 2” which is in B235 – table info is in C239:G333, etc, etc.

On sheet 1, I have a cell (L7) that is populated by another formula. This cell is effectively my lookup to pull out information from sheet2 to populate cells in (sheet1) AE119:AH212 - same sheet as the reference (L7).

I need to look up the reference/resulting value that is in L7 on sheet1, find and match against the values in column B on sheet 2 and then pull in the corresponding table information.

If the value in L7 was not changing at all I could do.. in cell AE119… =OFFSET(sheet2!B134,4,1,1,1) etc etc
... but I am at a loss as to the value in L7 changing and incorporating a lookup… or maybe I am looking at it wrong..?

I have looked up match, offset, index and lookups on the forum and have managed to confuse myself even more. I have even tried taking some of the example formulas and amending with my references but to no avail.

If Formula Result Negative Then Return Zero
When i have a formula standing at A3 fore example =A1-A2
and when i fill in a number like 100 at A1

And i fill in a number like 150 at A2 then at A3 where i had make my formula in there stands -50

Now i want the -50 not to disapear but instead there must be stand a 0(zero)

What is the formula i can use

i dont mind to put in at another cel like A4 for example

Macro: Place Result Value Instead Of Formula

I am testing the code below...

Sub applyCombination()

Dim shtP As Worksheet
Dim j, k As Integer 'j = row; k = col

On Error GoTo errorhandler

Set shtP = Sheets("Sys-Year")........

k = k + 1
Next k
j = j + 2
Next j

Exit Sub

errorhandler:
Exit Sub

End Sub

and, as it is a bit slow to paste a formula in each cell, I was wandering:

Is there any way I can place the resulting value ONLY?

(I don't want to do copy and paste special just values as it takes even more time)

Validation Lists As A Result Of An IF Formula
is it possible to first make an IF check on a cell and then as one of the results (true or false) to give the cell a Validation List?

So for instance if the IF will come out true, the Cell would just diplay some text and if the IF will come out false, the user will be able to choose something from a Validation Drop-down List?
