I have a long list or work items that I track on a log on daily basis.Some work items are repeated twice or trice to input a certain comment.Therefore, when I try to calculate the total number of work items for the day using counta formula, if results in an inaccurate total since certain work items are repeated twice or trice. The work items consist of a 8 digit number.Example 8876098.

I thought this was simple, but the formula I made didn't work.

How to create scenarios where excel will select all the possible ways to sum your data set to a specific number?

Example:

Data Set: (20, 25, 18, 40, 23, 22, 73, 7, 38, 28, 52, 96, 4, 99,2)

Way to create: 100

Answer 1: 25, 73, 2

Answer 2: 38, 2, 40

Answer 3: 96, 4

Is there a function or data structure in order to complete this?

I have a work sheet with multiple columns and rows. In one column there is unique number which is appearing in multiple rows but it is appearing in different rows more than once like this:

ColumnB

KA0012

KA0012

KA0013

KA0013

KA0013

Now i want to calculate this e.g KA0012 appearing twice as one number similarly KA0013 appearing thrice as one number how can i do it?

I am trying to generate a formula that will add the last 17 cells over 25 cells worth of data. If there is nothing entered in one of the cells then the formula should add the next cell.

i.e. column Z needs to add A1:Y1 but only add the last 17 cells that have a number in it so this should add I1:Y1 to give 17 cells worth of data. BUT if for example L1 and P1 are zero, then column Z needs to add G1:Y1, still giving 17 cells worth of data.

I am calculating totals off a meter that roles over at 999999. Is there an easy way to have it auto calculate the total if my beginning reading is 994419 and my ending reading is 002146.

tSumthing = "=SUM(RC4:RC[-1])"

then based on the 0's I got above, it'll delete the row. I got diffculty modifying the formula below.

Columns(1).SpecialCells(xlBlanks).EntireRow.Delete

Whilst I was searching through the channels on telly the other night I came across a 'Quiz Call' channel where you had to add ALL the number within a certain sum (see sample) Sixteen minus five times seven multiply by nine add twelve

You not only have to do the sum you also have to add in all the less obvious numbers like the Six within Sixteen, plus also all the Roman numbers in each word like the I, X, & IX within the sixteen. I've done a small example to show what I mean, but I don't have any idea how to create a formula that will add up all of all of the permitations of roman numerals within each word.

It is quicker and easier for me to enter times as whole numbers.

I tried to Catinate the number and enter the ":" in the middle. Example

I enter 815 and then =":" &RIGHT(a1,2) and get :15 but how do I add the 8 and convert the new number to time?

I want to convert the number in a cell, G7, from a whole number into a decimal and then divide that decimal into a whole number in cell E7 and give me the quotient in cell E8.

ie:312 = 6.0

286 = 5.5

260 = 5.0

234 = 4.5

208 = 4.0

182 = 3.5

156 = 3.0

130 = 2.5

104 = 2.0

78 = 1.5

52 = 1.0

Could this also be done with the entire range of numbers from 312 to 52 and giving decimals of 6.0, 5.9, 5.8 etc.

I really didn't want to create this thread, but this is really bugging me and I have had asked for assistance with this. I have tried to bump this in March and again last week, I have given more than 48 hours for a response, but I am seeing that the view counter is increasing so slowly, it was at 84 when I 'bumped' and I am not sure if someone is able to help me as the thread is moving further down the line.

I have not had any trouble with what I have used in over a year, I have had used Vlookup religously for 2 years, and for the last 3 months, I have encountered this problem. Didn't think anything of it the first time it happened. It was explained that there was a space in the cell, which is why the formula did not find it. What's strange is that it only happens on one cell. I haven't determined if it is the exact same cell reference, but I am researching that.

The formatting is the same, in both sheets. Is there some way to vlookup look up the value of the contents as seen?

Today I have a project as follows:

I have value1, search value1 in a row, if found get cell address and store in cell10. Then value2, search in the same row, if found get cell address and store in cell11. Then calculate number of rows between cells with addresses in stored in cell10 and cell11.

How do store the addresses and how to calculate this number of cells?

I need that number to use in next FOR loop.

I have a need to work out a scaled trend 1 - 10

for example if I have the following data set:

Background:

I play a game that requires 5 members to play, however you can have more then 5 members on the team. In order for a player to receive points for playing they must have played at least 30% of the total games played. The problem for me is when trying to figure out how many games someone needs to play to get to 30%, the total goes up as they play those games.

What I would like to accomplish:

I'm looking for help on a formula that would figure out how many games a player would need to play to get to 30%. I have a column that is total games played, %of games played by player, games played by player, and games needed to play to get to 30%. Basically the user would enter the # of games played by each player, and the total games played overall for the team for that week, the spreadsheet would then show the # of games each player that isn't above 30% would need to play.

I tried to make the question as clear as possible, if anyone needs clarification,

View 9 Replies View RelatedI have done is created an Officer Evaluation Form in Word for my Police Chief and the Scores for the different observations are: N/A, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. If for example there are 4 observations and one of the observations is "N/A" for not applicable or not observed and the rest are all 5's I want the formula to ignore the field(s) with the N/A and still come up with an average of 5. The way I have it set up now which is: =AVERAGE(KOW1,KOW2,KOW3,KOW4) it comes up with an average of 3 when I put a N/A in field KOW1 and all 5's in KOW2-KOW4.

View 3 Replies View RelatedAn age-old controversy has resurfaced in our lab regarding the calculation of a mean and standard deviation of a set of two numbers. There have always been those who say that you can't have a standard deviation of two numbers, but now someone has said that a mean of two numbers is meaningless (no pun intended). What is the current thinking on this? Of course, mathematically speaking, you can certainly calculate these values with only two numbers, but is a mean of two numbers not considered a valid measurement? How about a standard deviation?

I am working on word documents that has financial numbers on them. I am copying word pages to excel to calculate the numbers by using formulas and etc. I will cut to the chase; is there a way or a macro to insert into an excel template workbook(.xltx) when we open the template there will be a command button to select the word document (which we want to copy its pages) to excel sheets. When a new page begins a new sheet will be created and the page will be pasted on the new sheet.

It is not important if it has to have a command button to select the word document it is ok to run the macro and select the word document and it does not has to populate sheets according to length of word document (I can create lost of free sheets on the template)

The main idea is to gain the time I spend on copying the word document to excel sheets. Some documents can be very long (100 pages). I am using MS Office 2007.

I triend to export data but excel does not allow me to select word documents.

i need a formula for which calculate all cell (calculating years months and days formula). FIND ATTACHED .xls file i need a answer in cell highlited in yellow color.

I need to calculate a TAT formula for the below case

P1 -- 1 Hour

P2 -- 2 Hour

P3 -- 4 Hour

P4 -- 8 Hour

Shift Start time : 6:30pm

Shift End Time : 3:30am

Suppose a request comes at 9:30pm and it is Priority 1 (P1) then it should be completed at 9:30pm + 1 hour = 10:30pm. I have given the below formula to execute this

=IF(A2="P1",1,IF(A2="P2",2,IF(A2="P3",4,IF(A2="P4",8,0))))

=B2+(TIME(D2,0,0))

The problem here is if the request is P4 then its 8 hr TAT and the formula will calculate the time as 5:30am. Since the shift time end at 3:30am itself the actual TAT should be the next day 8:30pm.

formula to calculate the TAT which includes the start time and end time and also excludes the weekends and holidays.
