If Cell Has Value Calculate

I am setting up a spread sheet to compare an invoice between 2 suppliers. It has formulas throughout and a total column. If no data is entered in cells then total column has "value" in it. How can I eliminate the"value" while still keeping formulas in place. Not all cells will have data in them on every instance. But I still need all formulas to be saved

Calculate If There Is Anything In The Cell
Im wanting to do a sum calculate if there is anything in the cell.
Ive tried using the 'count' and 'count if' but both return values of zero.

There are words in the cell, rather than numbers.

I want it to return the value of cells with data in them, and exclude those with nothing ("") in them.

Calculate With Alphanumeric Cell
In one cell there is a combination of number and text(i.e) 10 Inches or 100 Nos. In another cell this cell is quoted as reference for calculation. Ex. A1*B1/C1 wherein A1 contains Number, B1 Contains Number whereas C1 contains Alphanumerical as mentioned above. But, the contents of cell C1 should be treated as numerals and taken into account for calculation in the above manner. Can explain how to format the Cell C1?

Cell To Calculate A Running Total
I'm trying to have a cell (eg.A1) where i can input a dollar value and when enter is pressed, on another cell (eg.A2) the dollar value gets added, then the original cell (A1) is cleared for the next input.

Then when I put the next input (A1) I want it to add on to this running dollar total (A2) and yet again A1 is cleared for the next input.

In addition to this I require an additional cell (eg.A3) that when each time a value is added in A1 it counts the times this is done.

For example; if you worked from 7am to 4pm, I want to have a formula that can determine that (7am to 4pm= 9 hours) then sum the total amount of hours for all employees scheduled that day.

Mon Tue Wed Thrs Fri Sat Sun Total

Automatically Calculate Cell When Changed
There is a column in my spreadsheet which needs to reflect a " percent done".
I used to enter just a numerical value in (eg. 20) to reflect 20% done. My boss wanted it to show as an actual percentage (eg. 20%). I changed the format to Percent, Zero decimal places. Then you had to enter .20 to get the 20% to show.
Now my boss doesn't like that - and wants to be able to enter "20" to get the 20% to show. I put the following code in my SelectionChange event...

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
'other logic
If Target.Column = Asc(PercentDoneColumn) - 64 Then
If Target.Value <> "" Then
Target.Value = Target.Value / 100
End If
End If
'end other logic
End Sub

My problem is that this works well when putting a new percentage in, but not for when you click on a cell that already has a percentage in it. For example, if you have .2 (displaying "20%" in the cell), and click on that cell, it divides that number by 100, and gives you 0.2%, displaying as "0%". I want to enter a number between 0 and 100, have it displayed and stored as a percent. At this point, I'd settle for the displayed, but would prefer to have it stored as a percent, too.
I also want it to not reset my value unless I'm putting a new value in!

Calculate An Average Daily Expense Cell
I've set up a simple spreadsheet to keep track of my food expenses every month. The first column is for the date, the second is for the daily total expenses and then the next three columns are where I add the data which is then calculated into the daily total column.

I also have a total at the bottom for the entire month. Now what I want to do is I want to also have underneath the grand total, a cell which keeps track of my average daily expenses. Basically I want to divide the total expenses by the number of days which I've entered data. Now normally this would be fine but because I've applied the formula to all the cells in the expense column, it automatically lists every day as "0" rather than leaving it blank. So when it does the average calculation it's dividing my total by 30 days rather than by only the 7 days I have data for.

Automatically Calculate The Bonus Points Into A Cell
I am updating a sports competition ladder. There are two aspects to compiling the table I would like to automate but have been unable to find out how via the excel documentation.

The aspects are.

1. When a team loses by a margin of seven points or less below the total points scored by the winning team then the team is awarded a single "1" bonus point that contributes to their overall competition points tally.
2. When a team scores four tries or more they are likewise awarded a bonus point.

I require formulas that will automatically calculate the bonus points into a cell.

Situation One
cell 1 = Points For (eg. 17)
Cell 2 = Points Against (eg. 24).
In this instance the team did not win. They scored 17 points and the winning team scored 24 points. Therefore the team lost but lost by seven points and is therefore entitled to one (1) bonus point.
SOLUTION NEEDED - I need a formula that will calculate whether cell 2 is seven or less than cell 1, and if so automatically place a total of "1" in cell 3.

Situation 2
Cell 1 = Tries Scored (eg. 5)
In this instance the team has scored five tries. They have scored more than four tries or more and is therefore entitled to one (1) bonus point.
SOLUTION NEEDED - I need a formula that will scan the number in cell 1. If this number is 4 or more, then a total of "1" should be automatically placed in Cell 2.

I have looked into the excel help but to no avail and the search terms are so broad it was a nightmare trying to search the forums.

Compare Highest Value With Cell Above & Calculate
I have a set of values in the 2nd column (Col B). I have shown in Column C (I've added some notes to the right).

mon........7..........(first value, so nothing here), or ERR.......................... 8 IS the highest value in B, so no math to do yet, or ERR.......................... 10 is greater than 8…the new highest value in Col B
thu.........8...........(20.00)............................. The value, 8, is 20% less than the Highest value so far in Col B
fri..........6..........(40.00)............................. The value, 6, is 40% less than the Highest value so far in Col B.....

Namely, any value in Col B that is LESS than the highest, greatest, largest value that has preceeded it in chronological order will reflect by what % it is lower. (Eg, 8 is 20% less than 10). When a NEW higher value appears in Col B, there would be no answer in C (or simply "ERROR", or n.a.), and this new, largest value would be what subsequent values in Col B are compared to.

Compare Smallest Value With Cell Above & Calculate
I'm having trouble with the "sister" formula I need to add. I've tried the function SMALL, but apparently not in the right format.... Here is some data again, with the answers I'm seeking & notes in Col C:

mon....6....(first data pt, so nothing here)
tue.....8.....33.33 (this is 2/6ths higher than 6)
wed...10....66.66 (this is 4/6th higher than 6)
thurs...8....33.33 (same as tuesday)
fri.......6.....00.00 (Equal to the lowest data pt, ie 6)
sat.....5.....(finally a vlaue less than 6, so: "ERR")
sun.....7.....40.00 (7 is 2/5th higher than 5)
mon....15....200.00 (10/5ths higher than 5)
tue.....4......(a new lowest value; "ERR")
wed....8......100.00 (4/4ths greater than 4)

That is, any value in Col B that is GREATER than the lowest, SMALLEST value that has preceeded it - in chronological order - will reflect the % by which it is greater. When a new lowest value appears in Col B, a simple text "ERR" would appear, and THAT new low value will be the new "target" the subsequent values in B are compared to. (In the example, once 5 appears, we stop looking at 6...)

Automatically Calculate 2 Cells Based On Cell Changed
I have some rather complex formulas that when a value is placed in one of any three cells it solves for the other two, taking values from other places on a worksheet (including the cell itself).

Scenario: Cell F10, G10, and H10 all have formulas in them. If a value is placed in F10 it solves for G10 and H10. If a value is place in G10 it solves for F10 and H10. If a value is placed in H10, it solves for F10 and G10.

I really do not think the actual formulas matters at this time...

Has anyone done this before, using VBA code to place the formulas in cells F10 G10 and H10? Look for a working example of this if possible.

If Cell Not Blank, Calculate & Round Off Result
I would like to be able to round off the decimals resulted in the POV field on my worksheet and have a running total of the entries listed below. This occurs sometimes when the mileage units have decimals. In this example, the POV values display $1.00, 99 cents, and 93 cents. Their resulting total should be 2.92, but Excel calculates them as $2.93 due to the additional decimals.

The problem is that if I apply an =ROUND function to the formula in the POV field, while it will display a correct answer if all the date and mileage fields are filled in for which the formula has been applied, it will not give a running total in instances where there are empty date/mileage fields, reporting "VALUE!". Is there a way to force Excel to display the running total?

I have attached the worksheet, with the example above entered in. I have included the formula I've been trying to fix on my worksheet on the bottom as well.

Formula Not Adding Correctly, Calculate The Results Based Off Of What Is Shown In The Cell
Basically a cell might have a number with 3 decimal places

For Example 90.554, and i will format the cell two 2 decimal places. But when i use those cells which are formated to 2 decimal places in a formula it produces results based of all the decimal places in that cell.

Is there a way for the formula to only calculate the results based off of what is shown in the cell? . This is messing up our accounting area by alot of dollars since we sell many items.

In One Cell: Calculate The "inverse Sum" Of A Column
I have 26 columns of data, and each column is 1500 rows long. At the bottom of each column, I'd like to calculate a "inverse sum" -- the "inverse sum" should be the sum of the inverse of each value in the column. It should not be the inverse of the sum of the column. In other words, a column with these 3 values:


Should result in an "inverse sum" of 1, namely one-half plus one-quarter plus one-quarter. It should not result in one-tenth, namely the inverse of the simple sum, or ten.

** I know ** how to do this by adding a "computational column" next to each "data column", and the summing the computational column. But I don't want to do this because it will double the number of columns to 52, and since I'm not the only user of this spreadsheet, I prefer to not start hiding columns.

So... is there a way -- in one cell at the bottom of each column -- to calculate the "inverse sum" of the column above? A CSE array formula would be fine, if it works.

Calculate Date Six Months From Cell Date
I have a start date for a contract in cell AM1. I need AN1 show a date six months from the start date in AM1. I am fine with that part.

However, I would like for AN1 to calculate not only a six-month date but also to auto-update to the next six month date from AM1 once the first six month date is about, let's say, one month past. What I am doing is calculating when a six-month inspection needs to be completed; these inspections are ongoing, so I need them to auto-update.

So let's say a contract was awarded today, 25 JAN 2010. That would be value in AM1.

I want AN1 to produce a date six months from 25 JAN 2010, which would be 25 JUL 2010 (yes, this way of calculating the six month date is fine). Then around, let's say, 25 AUG 2010, I want AN1 to auto-update to produce the next six month date, which would be 25 JAN 2011 (six months from 25 JUL). Obviously the function would need to relate to TODAY() in some way.

Calculate Totals
I have a spread sheet that is used to review calls placed by a call center.

Column A has the extensions of the phones, and Column E has the type of call (Outgoing or Incoming). Each line is a new phone call.

We have about 8 extensions, but the worksheet could have a couple thousand calls. So, Column A could have extension 1401 from rows 1-100 as extension 1401 made 100 calls. I'm looking for a formula or macro that will summarize how many outgoing and incoming calls extension 1401 had. Thoughts?

My initial thought was something like this:


In this formula, I would type in the extension of H2 and it would scan Column A and add up the values in Column E. The only problem is, that Column H doesn't contain a numerical value. It only has "Incoming" and "Outgoing" (minus the quotes), so this doesn't work.
