# How Do I Create Multiple Formulas In One Cell

Dec 29, 2009

I have a list of numbers that I want to identify the highest and second highest numbers and create a mathematic result.

For example.
I lets say I have 15 stocks "B19:P19" I have X amount of money to invest "Q21" I want to invest 85% of Q21 in the highest of B19:P19 and 15% in the second highest. If there are 2 highest that are tied I want to split the 85% of Q21. SO far I have been able to identify the Highest and show it at 85% of Q21 with this =IF(B19=(MAX(B19:P19)),(Q21*0.85)) but I am not sure how to get the rest of it to do what I want.

## 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

## Multiple Formulas In Same Cell?

Is there a way to use multiple formulas for just one cell without damaging the others?

## Multiple Formulas In One Cell

Jan 24, 2014

I have compiled a spreadsheet and it has columns for the days of the week, Mon through Fri. I have written a formula in R9 which will add a range of comments in the Recommended Actions column (R) depending on what is entered in I9:M9. So far so good

Unfortunately when I enter anything in I9, then enter something else in J9 the "Recommended Actions" just adds another comment after the previous comment in the same cell as the formula in there references I9 & J9 & K9 & L9 & M9.

Can you think of a way to set it up so that when I enter something in I9 then enter something else in J9 it changes the "Recommended Actions" from the old comment to the new comment or deletes the old comment before adding the new comment?

Formula:
=IF(\$I9="OK","Working ok",IF(\$I9="No Modulation","Check Profile and modulation",
IF(\$I9="FLD","Check pulse unit and meter operation",
IF(\$I9="No Data","Check Comms",IF(\$I9="Low Pressure","Check pressure on outlet",
IF(\$I9="High pressure","Check outlet Pressure",

[code].....

## Entering Multiple Cell Formulas?

Mar 4, 2014

I have a requirement to enter 25 formulas into 25 different cells. The formula is this:

[Code]......

The only thing that changes is the cell reference at the end which goes up in increments of 20,000, i.e. R20000, R40000, R60000, etc.

I have this set up and it works fine. My question is whether there is another quicker way rather than have the above code repeated 25 times?

## Multiple CountIf Formulas In One Cell

Jun 27, 2012

I am creating a holiday chart for absence, I have put the following formula in one cell

=COUNTIF(F4:NF4,"H")+COUNTIF(F4:AJ4,"HD")

Now when these letters are typed in to the range they calculate "H" and "HD" to be 1 - is it possible to have "H"=1 and "HD"=0.5 to then give a total in the desired cell?

Basically "H" is 1 day holiday and "HD" is (0.5) half day holiday, I would like the total from a range to appear in one cell

## Multiple Formulas Applied To One Cell

Mar 28, 2014

How would I write a formula if I was trying to get the cell to count all expired certifications (based on a range of cells and their expiration dates) as well as all blank cells? This is what I have so far and all it's doing is displaying "FALSE"... =COUNTIF(D2:D95,"

## Locking Multiple Cell Reference Formulas At Once

Jan 15, 2010

I am working on a massive Pivot Table but in order to compile it I have to copy data from many worksheets into one. My problem is that each worksheet contains about 11,500 formulas with references to other workbooks and cells. However, none of these is locked for cell reference (meaning none has the \$ sign for row or column) so copying and pasting obviously screws it up since the reference is changing but I need to have the links active in the pivot table.

It would obviously take me a year to add 440,000 individual \$ signs. Is there any way, a trick of sorts, where I can just highlight the entire worksheet and add the \$ sign to each and every cell reference automatically?

## Multiple Formulas In One Cell To Return 1 If One Condition Met

Apr 13, 2014

I would like to put the following two formulas in one cell, so if one condition is met, it returns 1:

Code:
=IF(IF((AND(MATRIX!C4=0.795),1,0)

Code:
=IF(IF((AND(MATRIX!C4>=-0.094,MATRIX!C4=0.795),1,0)

The formulas work fine as single formulas in one cell, but I can't figure out how to do both in one cell. I tried this but I get errors.

Code:
=IF(((AND(MATRIX!C4>=-0.094,MATRIX!C4=0.795),1,0,IF((AND(MATRIX!C4=0.795),1,0)

I've also tried using the OR function, get errors. I'm not sure which to use, IF or OR, and I can't get the syntax right on either one.

I actually have six formulas for each cell, but how to do two, then I'll know how to do all six.

## Data Validation: Multiple Formulas Required In 1 Cell?

Nov 23, 2009

I currently am using Data Validation drop-downs (which are identically referenced) in a number of cells (From J10 to J19). Each entry refers to a Crew departure &/or arrival time (based on an Aircraft schedule) and crew Subsistence & allowance (\$17 per day). Referenced from “K10:K19” is USD currency:

DAYS:CURRENCY:
“J10:J19” “K10:K19”
“FULL-WEEK”(References 7 Days) = “USD 120.00”
“SATURDAY (DEPART)”(References 2 Days) = “USD 35.00”
“SATURDAY (ARRIVE)”(References 6 Days) = “USD 100.00”
“TUESDAY (DEPART)”(References 5 Days) = “USD 85.00”
“TUESDAY (ARRIVE)”(References 3 Days) = “USD 50.00”

I am trying to establish a way to specifically; select a particular day in the Data Validation drop-down menu (J10:J19) and a formula automatically converting the result to “USD Currency” for each of the 5 alternatives?

So in other words, each data validation cell will have 5 matching formulas pertinent to each specific orientation (Day)?

E.G.Select “FULL WEEK” from the drop-down option and “USD 120.00” is revealed / converted?
Select “SATURDAY (DEPART)” from the drop-down and “USD 35.00” is revealed?
... “SATURDAY (ARRIVE)” = “USD 100.00”
... “TUESDAY (DEPART)” = “USD 85.00”
... “TUESDAY (ARRIVE)” = “USD 50.00”

The closest I have managed (with no real success) is as per the following formula:
IF(T26="FULL_WEEK",X26,IF(T26="TUESDAY_(ARR)",X27,IF(T26="SATURDAY_(ARR)",X28,IF(T26="TUESDAY_(DEP)" ,X29,IF(T26="SATURDAY_(DEP)",X30)))))

I would be so incredibly grateful if somebody could help me (in laymen’s terms)?

## Formula To Combine Multiple Formulas Into Single Cell?

Mar 12, 2014

I'm looking for a way for Excel to combine formulas together into a more compact form for me.

Attached is a very simple version of what I want, my actual formulas are very complex but I'd still like a way to have them automatically combined into a single cell.

Alternatively, what is a good way to break down a very complicated one-cell formula and still keep things organized?

Here is the one-cell version of a formula I work with.

[Code] .......

That formula is difficult to work with in one cell, so on another sheet I have it broken down into parts so that if one part isn't doing what I want I can change it. This takes up a LOT of space because of the other steps I do (the above formula is just one step) and I'd like to combine it together.

## How To Create Multiple Checkbox Lists In Each Cell

Feb 10, 2014

I would like to know if there's a way to create a checkbox list in a cell that influences other cells:

For example, I would have column A as "Materials Accepted", and each cell would have a dropdown list with the options "Wood", "Drywall", and "Metal", in checkbox format. Then to the right of that, I would have each of the Materials as actual columns so that column B is "Wood", column C is "Drywall", and column D is "Metal".

The way I would want it to work from there is that whatever options I select from the dropdown, it would then put a TRUE flag in that column. So if I select "Wood" and "Metal" on the dropdown checkbox list, columns B and D would both read TRUE on that particular row.

Just wondering if something like this is possible, as I wanted to apply this concept to a much larger scale (About 29 columns for 29 Materials, scrolling left and right is really time consuming). So far I've only seen guides on how to create a SINGLE checkbox on a row, and none with multiple checkboxes that would function in this manner.

## Create List From Same Cell On Multiple Worksheets

## Create A Timesheet With Time Formulas

Feb 26, 2008

I am trying to create a timeline spreadsheet for a weekly radio show I produce. We have 3 segments and the total time of the 3 must add to 59 minutes. Within each segments there are numerous variables with a certain time value. I am trying to figure out how to have time reduced correctly. For Example

Segment 1
Story A 5:00 minutes
Story B 4:30 minutes
Story C 3:00 minutes

What I need is Segment Total (A+B+C) in one cell and Remaining time (from total 59 minutes) in another. I know this may seem silly for most of you, but I cannot get the cells to format properly at all.

## Combine Multiple Cells To Create Unique Cell Value In A Column

Sep 23, 2012

I would like to know how to combine multiple cell value from each column to create a unique value. for example column A will have values (a,a,b,c,d,e,e,f,i,j) and B will have (1,2,1,1,3,4,5,5,6,7) and C has ( xxx,yyy,zzz,xxx,yyy,zzz,xxx,xxx,yyy,zzz).

i need to create a list of unique possible combination of data into column D.

I have placed below example and how to create a similar code and what functionality does this.

## How To Create Patterns When Copying / Pasting Formulas

Jan 24, 2012

I was wondering if there was a way to create patterns when copying and pasting formulas?

For example, here is what I want to do right now:

=AVERAGE(Sheet1!I2:I650)
=AVERAGE(Sheet1!I2:I649)
=AVERAGE(Sheet1!I2:I648)
=AVERAGE(Sheet1!I2:I647)
=AVERAGE(Sheet1!I2:I646)
=AVERAGE(Sheet1!I2:I645)
=AVERAGE(Sheet1!I2:I644)
=AVERAGE(Sheet1!I2:I643)
=AVERAGE(Sheet1!I2:I642)
=AVERAGE(Sheet1!I2:I641)
=AVERAGE(Sheet1!I2:I640)

In other words, have a pattern in the formula?

Or something like this, but filling out cells horizontally.

=A1/A100
=A1/A99
=A1/A98
=A1/A97
=A1/A96
=A1/A95
etc...

Or:

=A1*A1
=A1*A2
=A1*A4
=A1*A8
=A1*A16
=A1*A32
=A1*A64
etc...

## Create Multiple Text Files From Cells & Save As Name In Adjacent Cell

Jun 26, 2008

I have two columns one of which has filenames and the other having values. I need to creating a macro that takes each value from a cell outputs it into a text file and then saves it with the filename of the cell next to the value. I'll need it to go down the columns and create separate text files for each.

## Need Macro To Create Formulas And Split (Comma Delimited) Cells Into Rows

Mar 30, 2013

Example: Column A has a mixture of letters and numbers. ie AU1234 or AU5678 Always the letters will be first, but not sure if 2 or 3 letters. Need to insert space between letters and numbers.

I have so far. " =(left(a2,2)) & " " & (mid(a2,3,(len(a2)-2))) " this works if all are only 2 letters...

Now. What I need to do is open a .csv (will do manually) then hit something like ctrl-alt-k to run macro.

Step 1: Insert a column next to A, check rows down and for however many rows, make above formula (include 2 or 3 letters) to insert space between letters and numbers, select the new column, copy, select column a and overwrite with the values from the new column. ie turn 'A2' from "AU1234" to "AU 1234" and 'A3' from "AU4567" to "AU 4567" .

Step 2: Column D has comma delimited fields. Column F also has comma delimited fields. both D and F will always have the same number of fields. D will be something like 1234,2345,3456 ------ in this case 3 fields but could be over 100 fields
F will be something like M0002456 (04P), M0002457 (05P), M1230477 (02A).

Need to split both D and G from row A2 simultaneously from comma fields to rows. copying all other data from row. and insert before the next set of data in what was previously A3 and (in this case *should* be moved down to A5 because of the 2 inserted lines from the 2 extra fields).

E.g.: Column A Row 2 "AU 1234" Column B Row 2 "data1" Column C Row 2 "data2" Column D Row2 "1234" Column E Row 2 "data3" Column F Row 2 "M0002456 (04P)"
Column A Row 3 "AU 1234" Column B Row 3 "data1" Column C Row 3 "data2" Column D Row 3 "2345" Column E Row 3 "data3" Column F Row 3 "M0002457 (05P)"
Column A Row 4 "AU 1234" Column B Row 4 "data1" Column C Row 4 "data2" Column D Row 4 "3456" Column E Row 4 "data3" Column F Row 4 "M1230477 (02A)"

Then carry on to next row which may have only one field and can be ignored/skipped to the next which may have 100 fields which will need to be split to rows and inserted...etc....

Step 3
Remove all the "space Bracket-data-Bracket" ie " (04P) from column F

## Excel 2010 :: Create Macro Button To Clear Multiple Cells On Multiple Worksheets?

Jul 2, 2014

I have attached a test workbook excel 2010 (ignore ref# errors, I've cut the workbook down for uploading purposes) What I would like to do is have a 'Button' on my 'information Sheet' which when clicked would clear certain cells. I have searched the forum but can't find a solution, everyone seems to want to delete rows or columns but I just want to clear certain cells. The workbook will have 11 sheets each named 'caravan 1' through to 'caravan 11' The uploaded test workbook only only has 3 sheets.

On 'caravan 1' (which is slightly different to the other 10) I want to clear the content of cells

B4 & B5
C4, C22 & C41
D4 & D5
E4,E5, E22,E23,E41 &E 42

On all other 'Caravan sheets' I want to clear the contents of cells

D4 & D5
E4, E5, E22, E23, E41 & E42

It would be icing on the cake if it could give a warning such as " are you sure you want to clear these cells" but that isn't really necessary. The worksheets will be password protected, but the cells mentioned above will not be. If it proves too difficult to clear all the cells on all the sheets with one click, then perhaps a simpler solution might be to have a button on each sheet instead

## Create Multiple IF Statement And Multiple VLOOKUP Within Same Formula

Aug 11, 2014

I am trying to create a formula which looks in 1 cell to determine 'IF' it states either "BUTT CUT" or "DIE CUT" and then does a VLOOKUP in a table array for each which ever column relates to asnwer to 'IF statement.

## Create Multiple Files For Multiple Groups Of Data

May 9, 2008

I have one main Excel file with information (in example file - columns A & B). I want to create 4 other Excel files that will draw from the main one (in example file - columns D, F, H, & J). I want the information in Excel file A, B, C, and D to be continuous information that matches the main file. For example, the letter A matches up with numbers 1,3,4,10,11,13,15,17, and 19 in the main file. When I open Excel file A, I want a continuous list of these numbers. And I want this for all 4 Excel files which draw from the main one.

=IF(AND(H5>55,(I5<10),(J5<3)),("Close Out"),(""))

## Edit Multiple Formulas At Once

Dec 9, 2013

Is it possible to edit multiple =VLOOKUP formulas to add in a "[range lookup]" = FALSE without editing each one individually? I was going to use a find and replace for the "col_index_num" and add the FALSE to the end of that, but in this case my "col_index_num"s vary too much.
