I have a LOG sheet where I am getting all my data from,
and a TIME and DUTY sheet..

COL A Has Dates, a4 to a34, Limited to 31 lines for the dates
and in col F I have # values, (1.2-2.2 etc).
The formula I have in Col F is
=SUMIF(LOG!$A:$A,#REF!,LOG!F:F)

but when i get to the end of the month, say for example the last 2 lines of the time and duty sheet, when a32 is 29/ Feb, the next row is blank and same with next row. (leap year).

How do I get the formula above to ONLY calculate when the cell in COL a on the same row, when there is a DATE value in COL a?

I have a nested if statement that doesn't give a blank cell when it is evaluated. The cell is general formatted but results in a '0' in the cell instead of a completely blank cell.

If statement is: =IF('Sales info'!B16="",'Sales info'!B6,IF('Sales info'!B6="","",'Sales info'!B16))

Will have a total calorie column (this will be a sum of several column containing individual foods)

On a separate worksheet (food sheet) will be a list of foods in one column and their calories (per serving) In the next column.

On the first sheet I want a drop down that lists all the foods on the "food sheet). selecting from this drop down will use a vlookup (or hlookup - depending) to arrive at a caloric value.

So here is (are) the problems. (and the solutions need to be NON-VBA)

1. How do I tie the drop down selection to a vlookup (macro maybe)

2. How do I use that one drop down to populate any cell on sheet one?

can this be done without coding?

This will be an exercise for an excel class to teach vlookups, linked sheets, making a dropdown, using a macro, formulas, IF statements............

The class is probably not ready for VBA which is why this needs to be a non-coded solution.

I am open to other solutions (related topic) that can bring together all of the above learning concepts

I am a teacher and I want a column to turn a particular colour if a pupil has met their target grade and another if they have not. Our grades work as letters A* being the best then descending as follows A, B, C, D, E, F, G, U.

I have a column with the pupil's target grade (one of the above letters) and another column with their current grade. How do I get excel to understand the ranking of the letters and format the current grade column according to whether they have met their target or not?

I am trying to put together an IF statement within excel which will give me certain output depending on the particular value within ONE cell.

For example:

If cell L5 has a value between 0 and 1.00 output value 0 If cell L5 has a value between 1.01 and 2.00 output value 20 If cell L5 has a value between 2.01 and 3.00 output value 40 If cell L5 has a value between 3.01 and 4.00 output value 60 If cell L5 has a value between 4.01 and 5.00 output value 80 If cell L5 has a value between 5.01 and 6.00 output value 100

when a cell in column "K" is clicked, an input box gives the user the choice of entering a number between 1 and 12. That value then inserts row(s) based on input value ..

I am trying to give a cell a unique ID based on the contents of 2 other cells.

Basically in cell A1 a value is entered between 1 and 13 and in cell A2 another value is entered between 1 and 4 to find the unique ID that matches these I need to look in DF4:FE4 to find the number that matches A1 ( there will be 4 matches) then look in thoses 4 matches in DF5:FE5 to find the match to A2 ( there will only be 1 match ) then return the id from the relvant cell in DF3:FE3.

Surely it's user error, but it honestly seems like Excel is not calculating 2 numbers correctly. At work, we have office 2010 where it is not calc'ing correctly; at home I have 2007 and it's fine, but anyway, here's my situation:

Cell A1: 0.003529 Cell B1: 0.48

If i put in Cell C1: "=B1/A1" i get a value of 136.000000 But that's not correct, it should be 136.01587... But if in Cell C1 i put "=0.48/.003529" then i get 136.01587...which is correct.

Why does using cell references in my formula give me the incorrect value?

I'm trying to make a simple chart with VBA based on a row with values that will color the offset cell interior red and also give it a value of 1. (look a the example sheet.)

In 1 cell i need a forumla to give me a starting number and take one away each time a code or codes are dislayed in a cell range. Something like this

A1 = 23 days or any number days i needed

Cell range B1:C52

every time a selected 1 or 2 letter code appears in the cell range i want A1 to subtract 1 day from the starting number, i would need it to subtract half a day if one code appears ie HD, the codes may be P, OT, HD

I can't modify my formula to leave blank cells blank when dragging it down, Also, I've got two formulas that i need to combine. Please view the comments I've put in cells E4, F2,F3,H2 and I2 to understand clearly what am seeking. See the attached worksheet.

I have one column that contains an If statement formula and would like the next column to then work off of the first column (i.e. if that 1st column returns a value then then adjacent column uses that result).

What is happening now is that it is returning #value (because I guess technically the cell isn't blank?)

I am looking for an IF statement that would leave a balance cell blank if both the revenue and expense cells are blank, otherwise a formula would be calculated.

I presume this is fairly simple to do, since it's certainly easy enough to do manually by filling in a couple of rows and dragging them down, but I need it to be performed in a macro that I can run before other macros run.

What I need specifically is for the macro to go to G1 and insert the number .01... Then go to G2 and insert .02... Then G3 and insert .03... And repeat this until it finds the first non-blank cell ( row number this occurs at varies), at which point it ends and does nothing to that populated cell or any other cell in the column thereafter (including other blanks farther down).

The range of cells in column B containing the items has a name "ColStreams"

I need to go through the list, filling in each blank cells with the value contained in the first non-blank cell above it - so, in this case, rows 6 and 7 would contain "Item 2", row 9 would contain "Item 3", rows 11-13 would contain "Item 4" and so on.

The formula below calculates appropriately, however, if any of the cells (E12,E14, E21, E22, E28, E29) are blank, it returns a #VALUE! error. I would like the cell to remain blank. How can I do this? The formula is listed below.

Im currently writing a payroll sheet within excell and trying to write an IF statement to make a cell blank if referring to another blank cell but it is showing the formula is incorrect. Below is the following IF statement that im using;

My workbook is for financial planning but I'm attempting to streamline an input page (name, birthdate, etc) that will be referenced throughout the entire workbook to trigger automatic calculations (present value, education calculations, etc).

The cell in the input page is a birthdate - which when populated will trigger a cell on a different worksheet to calculate the respective age using this formula:

The problem is if there is nothing written in the birthdate cell then the age cell will automatically calculate 114 (reference photo below). Ideally I'd like that cell to be blank if nothing is in the birthdate cell on the input worksheet. I'm assuming since I'm using an IF formula to calculate the age already then I'll need to use a macro to to an "ignore".

in one column of my spreadsheet and it is returning the correct concatenation for the appropriate lines. However, I wish to have the column's cells return an answer of blank (" ") if B15, B16... etc is blank. In other words, at the moment, a correct answer would read something like '1810sd0000' C10 and B15 used, while an incorrect answer would still display '1810', but I want it to be a blank cell.

I need to match cells e3:h3 whenver the dates change in in cells c5:c9 and then put there result of cells b5:b9 into the corresponding cells of e5:h9.

Basically what I'm saying is that I want to keep a track of all previous pay amounts from each pay period. So when the next period changes the date it also copies the new pay amount to the corresponding date of the previous pay section.

Looking for a way to search an active cell (that has been found using macro) for numerical data and if there is some present paste this in a different location

If there is no numerical data in this this cell then paste a 0 in a different location

An example of the string contained in the cell

Product 7.5% wheat <- i would want 7.5 (or 7.5%) copied to a different cell or Product X <- i would want a 0 copied to the cell the 7.5 would be in from the above

I can find the cell to search in, i just do not know the correct way to extract the information I need.

My worksheet contains data with the reaction times on a psychological test. Each respondent in the test has 280 rows in my excel sheet.

The 'perfect' length of the row, is from A to M. When an error is made in the test, the length of the row will increase. So the error length can be A to AA.

For me it is important to analyse the error. So I would like to give a perfect row length, the value 1, and an error row length a value 2.

So, in conclusion:

If: Cell length = A1 - M1? --> Copy A1 B1 C1 (A B Cof that row) to Sheet3, and give D1 in sheet 3 the value 1

Cell length >= A1 - M1? --> Copy A1 B1 C1 (A B C of that row) to Sheet3, and give D1 in sheet 3 the value 2

I have made a table which contains 2 date columns, Both formatted as date (dd-mmm-yy), the second column is calculated as the first column, + 30, The dates work out fine when adding to a date in the first columns, but from a blank cell it displays 30-Jan-00.

e.g Started Finishes

12-Nov-13 12-Dec-13

30-Jan-00

09-Nov-13 09-Dec-13

11-Nov-13 11-Dec-13

Rather than delete the rows with the blanks in the Started column, is there a formula that I can use so that the cells in the "Finishes" column is left blank when the "Started" cells are blank?

The current formula for cells in the "Finished" column is:
