# Formulas To Calculate IF Cell Has Something Entered?

Sep 28, 2011

I need to calculate the amount of time my daughter will be in daycare which varies each week. I have to give the same sheet that I have hidden calculations on to the center. I have to have the time she arrives at 7:15 AM (Cell A1) however they don't start to bill until 7:45 AM (Cell A2) and continues until 11:30 AM (Cell B1) and need C1 to be total hours between A2 and B1

I need a formula that will calculate the hours between 7:45 AM to 11:30 ONLY if cell A1 has a time entered in it. If A1 is blank then it should calculate 0 hours.

Example (WITH something entered in A1)
Arrive Time End Billable Time Total Billable Time
A1 - 7:15 am to B1 - 11:30 am C1 - 3.75 Hours

Start Billable Time
A2 7:45 am

Example (WITHOUT something entered in A1)
Arrive Time End Billable Time Total Billable Time
A1 - to B1 - 11:30 am C1 - 0.00 Hours

Start Billable Time
A2 7:45 am

If it has to be in 24 hour time is there a formula that I can enter in another cell to convert 12 hour time to 24 hour time again ONLY if A1 has something entered in it?

## Calculate The Number Of Days From A Date Entered Into Cell A1 To Today's Date

May 19, 2009

I need a formula that will calculate the number of days from a date entered into cell A1 to today's date. Whether it's before or after todays date. Example:

5/10/2009 to today is -9

5/22/2009 to today is 3

## Formulas Not Updating Unless Re-entered

Oct 10, 2007

I've a lot of formulas (made in vba) in a Sheet. The problem is that even if the formulas all work as they should from the beginning, somtimes when I'm running some other macros, the formulas instead shows some error message. When selecting the cells and pressing enter, the formulas once again shows the right answer. Since it's extremely inefficient to select and press enter at each cell, what I need is some way to update these cells. Anyone know a quick way to update all formulas in the sheet?

## Formulas Not Calculating Unless Re-Entered

Mar 20, 2008

I am working in an excel file with many sheets. I have vlookups on several pages that refer to a different page in my file. However, I am finding that the vlookups are not autocalculating. They are fixed on a value until I click into the cell and hit 'enter'

## Data Validation To Prevent Formulas But Allow Zero To Be Entered?

Feb 27, 2013

Should be simple but I can't get this to work,

I have used =value(a1) that prevents any formula, but it also prevents a zero being entered.

I have amended trying and/or statements in the validation but then it allows zeros and formulas!

## Calculate An Average As Data Is Entered?

Aug 26, 2009

I'm using Excel 2003. I have about 190 rows that I use on any given day to enter start times & end times. I calculate the difference in Column E. Is there a formula that will calculate the average time as I enter them in the rows? Some days may have only 100 entries, other days may have as many as 190. I don't want to keep adjusting the average formula for column E.

## Formulas Won't Calculate. Just Displaying As Formulas

Dec 11, 2008

I have formulas in a column and they are working unless I edit them to include another function, more cells, whatever, then they display as formulas instead of the result. I've gone to Tools --> Options --> View and the Formulas box is not checked. As well automatic calculation is on not manual.

## Blank Until At Least 1 Variable Is Entered But Still Calculate Average

Jun 7, 2013

Cell D39 has the formula

=(D4+D11+D18+D25+D32)/5

I want the cell to remain blank until at least on variable is entered, but then I want it to calculate the average of only the cells that have a variable in them.

Just so I am clear

D4 = 20

D11 = 50

D 18 = BLANK

D25 = BLANK

D32 = BLANK

Average would be 35

## Calculate Prices Using Values Entered By Size

Nov 11, 2008

I am filling out an order form. My values are being entered as sizes. I would like to caculate any entery as 1 X the amount of the item, but the entry is for example.. "YS" and not the number 1.

## Conditional Format - Highlight Cells In Column That Have Entered Numbers Rather Than Formulas

May 29, 2013

Col A - budget items (description)
Col B - budget dollars
Col C - actual dollars
Row 10 - summation Cols B and C

When the budget is prepared the actual dollars in Col C are equal to the budget dollars for all items. For instance the formula =b2 is placed in cell C2. As time passes the user records actual dollars in Col C for each item by entering the actual amount directly into the cell. Actual dollars do not become known all at the same time, so that Col C will contain a mixture of formulas and entered numbers.

How can I highlight the cells in Col C that have entered numbers rather than formulas.

## Formulas: Get Data Added In One Sheet Of A Workbook To Automatically Be Entered Into Another Sheet

Jun 26, 2006

i'm trying to get data added in one sheet of a workbook to automatically be entered into another sheet. such as a monthly, Quarterly and Annual balance sheet.

## Calculate Formulas Based On Top 20%

Jun 27, 2008

I've got a report that I churn out every month that calculates total spend, average daily spend, median, number of people etc and as well as that I have to calculate formulas based on the top 20% and bottom 80% of the data. The attached sheet shows the number of people under different business areas, and costs in descending order.

At the moment I do it manually so I filter for each business area and work out the top 20% of people in range and then work out the number of employees, mean, median and SUM of the top 20% and bottom 80%. Below I have 20 people and I take the top 20% which is 4 and then I work out the Total number of people, SUM and median of the top 20 and I do the same for the bottom 80.

EXAMPLE:

TOP 20%
£1,330.00
£1,070.36
£997.50
£840.00

Employees - 4
SUM - £4,237.86
Median - £1,033.93............................

## Formulas To Calculate Between Two Worksheets

Feb 15, 2007

To start, have 1 sheet with approx 25 columns of data and i need one column to check 3 others + another sheet to complete its fields.

In column M i need to enter some prices from another worksheet (tag name 'prices') but these prices depend on whats completed in the fields in columns L, T & V.

Column L has fields completed with eg. Houses, Offices, Warehouses
Column T has some fields completed with eg. B1, D, E (these are just zonal refs)
Column V has some fields completed with numbers 1,2,3

Prices worksheet has 4 columns
A = Property (same heading and fields completed as Column L on first worksheet)
B = Standard Price (this has prices in fields that correspond to the properties in A above)
C = Cresta Price (same description as above)
D = Wind Price (same description as above)

I need column M (blank fields) to look at L (heading 'property') then add in Standard Price from B (worksheet prices) then check to see if any fields are completed in Columns T & V and if they are then it needs to addon the prices from either columns C or D from Prices worksheet.

## Formulas Display And Do Not Calculate

Dec 28, 2007

I am a little lost on this, and have tried to remedy my issue by searches to no avail. I have a cell formula that references another cell:

Cell A1 (=A3) where Cell A3 = 1

Cell A1 displays the text "=A3" and not the value of 1. Autocalc is on, and the worsheet and workbook is unprotected.

## Formulas: Calculate Without Manual Calclation

Mar 11, 2009

I am thinking that I must have something set up wrong some place, but have not done anything that should have changed my formulas

Its not that they are gone but just are not auto calculating.
I tried just a basic sample invoice and the figures do not calculate without manual calclation

## COUNTIF Formulas To Calculate Different Conditions

Apr 2, 2008

I am using =COUNTIF formulas to calculate different conditions. such as, calculating how much of one product do we have and how much is is received under 30 days. i want to combine those formulas in one cell to calculate two conditions in different columns.

1-So first i found out the date difference. I used =DATEDIF(Sheet1!C10,Sheet1!E10,"d")

2-Then I found out how many of one type do we carry, using the =COUNTIF.
=COUNTIF(Sheet1!J2:J3810,"DAZ")

3-That was easy, But now i have to sepereate them into 30 or less, 60 days or less, 90 days or less.
Then i used =COUNTIF(D2:D3810,"

## Discount Formulas: Cells To Calculate \$40 X (100%-10%) = \$36

Jun 7, 2006

I would like to ask the formulas for this... for example:

\$35 .. discount 10% + 25%

instead of having so many cells to calculate \$40 x (100%-10%) = \$36
\$36 x (100% - 25%) = \$27

## Formulas To Calculate Rent Increase Percentage

Aug 6, 2014

I am trying to do a spreadsheet that calculates the monthly rent from 9/1/14 through 1/1/15, then rent gets reduced from 2/15/14 through 1/1/16, then after that there will be an increase of 3% per year for each year until 8/2019.

## Disable Calculate Formulas That Link To Other Files?

Oct 21, 2011

I got a workbook that is linked to many external workbooks and it is very slow to calculate, so I work it with manual calculation and only calculate the sheet (SHIFT+F9) when necessary. To work with this workbook I need to be able to make faster manual calculations. I have tried many solutions and the only one that seems to work, is to work without the links to the other files (by breaking the links and turning the formulas to values). The problem with this solution is that I can't lose the formulas. I think that must be a way to calculate the sheet without calculating the cells that got a reference to the external files. Only the formulas in the current sheet.

## Efficient Lookup Formulas: Calculate The Time

Dec 29, 2007

Im having an awful time with the time it takes to calculate my formulas. I have probably written some of them ineffiecent.

=INDEX( Website_Query!\$A\$2:\$Z\$10000,MATCH(1,(Website_Query!\$A\$2:\$A\$9725=B1144)*(Website_Query!\$C\$2:\$C\$9725="EA "),0),4)

=Q1144*2

=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(A1144,pricing!A\$2:AL\$1547,38,FALSE)),"",VLOOKUP(A1144,pricing!A\$2:AL\$1547,38,FALSE))

=IF(ISERROR(Q1144+AR1144),"",Q1144+AR1144)

=IF(AK1086="q2",AL1086+AS1086,IF(AM1086="q2",AN1086+AS1086,IF(AO1086="q2",AP1086+AS1086,IF(AQ1086="q2",AR1086+AS1086,""))))

="q"&INDEX(Website_Query!\$A\$2:\$L\$7725,MATCH(1,(Website_Query!\$A\$2:\$A\$7725=\$B1086)*(Website_Query!\$C\$2:\$C\$7725=\$C1086),0),5)

## Array & Lookup Formulas Slow To Calculate

Jan 3, 2008

I am looking for ideas on how to speed-up one workbook. I have a spreadsheet with hundreds of lookup formulas and array formulas which are very slow to recalculate (takes around 5 min). Good thing about it is that these formulas are located in a specific range and that I need to run them only once a day (in the morning). Since I need to refresh the rest of the spreadsheet frequently, I am looking for an idea on how to isolate this resource heavy areas.

One solution I've been thinking about is moving these complex and slow formulas to VBA and run them only when needed. Can anybody assist me with the best and easiest way of doing this. Ideally I would want to leave option to the user to later edit this formula. Does anybody have any experience with weather it is best to migrate complete formulas to VBA or maybe leave formulas in the spreadsheet and run them based on predefined flag (that I can switch on or off from the code)?

## Chart Not Updating When Source Formulas Calculate

Feb 22, 2008

I have the same question as described in Graphs Not Updating When Source Data Updated; however, the poster did not reply to the request-for-clarification questions.

My chart does not always update when my source data changes. My Calculations setting is Automatic (not Manual). There is no macro code working to produce the source data or the chart. My chart is on the same worksheet as my source data. The source data is simple links to other cells in the same workbook that update as the underlying data is updated. Saving doesn't work. Manually calculating (F9) doesn't work. The only way I have found to get the correct data to display in the charts is to open the Source Data and re-enter the Series range. Obviously, that gets old.

## Calculate The Cells In Sheet Containing A Large Number Of Array Formulas

Oct 14, 2008

I I have a excel document which has a sheet containing a large number of array formulas.

I turned the automatic calculation off.

However, even when I press F9 to calculate the cells it just crunches, gets stuck at “Calculating 0%” and then crashes.

The majority of the array formulas are IF queries with multiple criteria.

Would it speed up the calculation if I didn’t use array formulas?

## Capture And Calculate Data Based On Work Week In VBA Or Formulas

Jul 21, 2014

I have a requirements to capture the data and calculate the qty based on the defined work week. How to to this in vba macro or a formulas. I'll giving a sample data as reference. In my sample data i have already the formulas
but i wanted to automate the work week calculation specially if the number of days in a month has been change.

Btw, the values of every column is came from other worksheet. i copy paste this data as my sample.

For ex : Today is July and it has 31 days, the 31 days will be distributed to the defined workweek and calculate the contents of the corresponding column.

here is the distribution of columns per week as reference.

(31 days)
wk1 - Day1 to Day8 (8 colums)
wk2 - Day9 to Day16 (8 colums)
wk3 - Day17 to Day24 (8)
wk4 - Day25 to day 31 (7) columns

(30 days)
wk1 - Day1 to Day8 (8 colums)
wk2 - Day9 to Day16 (8 colums)
wk3 - Day17 to Day23 (7)
wk4 - Day23 to day 30 (7) columns

## Using Cell References In File Paths For Formulas To Create Dynamic Formulas

Dec 3, 2013

I am using a lot of linked reports that have to be rewritten each month. For example smaller formulas look like this:

=('S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING201311 November[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]Production Parts'!B\$228*2)+'S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING201311 November[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]Production Parts'!B\$262+'S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING201311 November[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]Production Parts'!B\$292

What I want to do is extract the file path from the above formula and make it a composite of several cell references.

So what I need is to have a cell where they can change the month and another where we can change the year. So I set up several named cells that look like this:

_MONTH =11 November
_YEAR =2013
_JOBCARD ='S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING
_PATH =_JOBCARD & _YEAR &"" &_MONTH

I tried several versions, I am hoping for something like this:

=('_PATH &"[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]"Production Parts'!B\$228*2)+'_PATH &"[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]"Production Parts'!B\$262+'_PATH &"[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]"Production Parts'!B\$292

## Excel 2007 :: Copying Word Pages To Workbook To Calculate Numbers By Using Formulas

Apr 10, 2013

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.

## When A Date Entered On A Specific Cell, Automatically Enter A Text In Other Cell

Jul 10, 2006

I have 6 Headings in excel named...

"A" in cell A1, B in B1, "C" in C1, "D" in D1, "E" in E1 and "F" in F1.

There are two projects.

Project 1 has phase A, D & F and Project 2 has phase A, B, C, D & E.

My Specification follows...

1). Take Prject 1 - Which starts from A...in cell A2 I will keyin "A". When the phase comes to an end I will key in the end date of the phase. As soon as I key in the end date in cell A2 Letter D should automatically appear in the cell D2 and when Phase D comes to an end I will key in the end date in Cell D2 which should automatically keyin F in the cell F2. and is the same case for Project 2.

## If And Sumproduct Formulas: Calculate The Number Of Instances Of "CU"

Mar 30, 2009

I have a sheet that contains rows containing letter codes for example "CU". This is generated by an IF formula i.e. If true = "CU". However I need to be able to calculate the number of instances of "CU" but sumproduct will not work as it sees the cell as containing a formula not the result i.e. "CU". Sumproduct code:

## Cell In Excel To Determine If Country On List Has Been Entered In Cell?

Apr 18, 2013

I have a Userform that allows the user to input a country from a combobox which after clicking a button writes that data into Cell AH11 in the excel spreadsheet, what I need is for Cell AI11 to read what has been entered into Cell AH11, look up whether or not that country is on a list I have and enter a yes or a no if it is or it isn't on that list.
