False Negative Results From Exact Formula

Aug 4, 2014

I have several thousand values to compare, using = Exact(A2, B2) to find exact matches and return TRUE/FALSE. I've gotten a bunch of incorrect results especially where both values equal zero.

Average Column With Positive Or Negative Number - Ignoring Zero And Blanks

Dec 5, 2011

I have a column of numbers that are derived with a formula. I need to Average only the ones that either have a Positive or Negative number, ignoring blanks or zero.

I have tried Search but couldn't find anything that address both blank and zero.

Sheet2

K610.00%624.76%632.53%6418.75%65666.38%6768-4.00%6970-5.84%710.86%

Excel tables to the web : [URL] .......

With this small sample, the answer should be 3.35% according to Excel when I choose just those neg and pos cells.

Ranking With Duplicate Values While Ignoring Zeros And Negative Values

Mar 26, 2014

I'm trying to rank the values in cells S32:S38 in ascending order while ignoring zeros and negative values. I also need to rank duplicate values with a unique ranking, so that no ranking value is repeated. I tried the formula below, but the ranking values start at "2" instead of "1" and I can't figure out how to fix it.

Formula To Make Product Of Two Negative Numbers Negative

May 12, 2009

I have a large dataset (24000 rows) that requires me to multiply two different columns of integers. In some cases, the two integers are both negative and multiplying them results in a product that is positive. I actually need that product to be negative rather than positive. I can't quite seem to figure out the best way to accomplish this.

Parentheses For Negative Percent Results -

Jul 15, 2002

I have been able to format single cells to display negative percents (Budget to Actual hours), but I cannot copy the formatting to cells with positive percents without eliminating the format style I want. [I need to display, with the parenthesis, (13.6%)for negative results, but say, 18.6% for positive results.] When I copy the correctly formatted cell (13.6%) to another cell with a positive result, it sets the display to general formating.

As I have over 25 rows of data to compare against 62 projects and 12 programs, with each value potentially changing from one analysis to the other, I am looking for a method to automatically change the "look" of the results. I have looked at conditional formatting, but have had no indication this will do what I am looking for.

Negative & Positive Results In Separate Cells

Apr 9, 2008

Two columns contain data (cash amount) which should be the same. If there is a difference, I need to show a minus value in a different cell and a plus value in another cell.

Change Formula To The Results Of The Formula For Cells That Have Results

May 9, 2006

I have a range that has formulas that are based on other fcells outside the range.

What I want to do is, if the cell has a value to remove the formula and paste the results. If the filed is blank (no results from the formula) to leave the formula in place.

There could be a marco to run when this process is needed.

Ignoring #DIV/0! In Formula's

Dec 10, 2009

I have rows of data with numbers and these #DIV/0! errors. I need a sum formula so when going through the entire row it will ignore these errors, at the moment as they are included in my sum formula the total is also giving me #DIV/0!

Results Show Results Of Formula, But Should Be Blank

Jul 27, 2006

I am trying to create formula that will show overtime worked in a given day. The code I am using is a simple one ([ cell - 8], for hours worked). The problem is when the time cells are blank/not used it shows a -8 in the cell. what I need to do to create a code that will eliminate the -8 from showing. The cell its self is taking the result from another cell with a formula and then subtracting 8 from the result of the formula in the other cell.

Ignoring Characters While Formula Looks For Value?

Apr 16, 2014

I have stacked formulas that look for values via vlookup and index match functions.

Sometimes the worksheet will have ( 100 ) separated into 3 columns (open parenthesis, number, closed parenthesis) and the formula will pull the first column containing the parenthesis. How can I write the formula to ignore the "(" and get to the "100"?

The formula uses ISERROR to move forward, could I incorporate ISNUMBER also or is there a better way to do this?

IF And SUM Formula But Ignoring Text

Mar 31, 2009

I have the following formula but I want to ensure that the sum ignores any text so I don't get #VALUE! returned. I've tried including ISERROR but doesn't seem to be working correctly. The formula is: =IF(H19+H20+H21+H22+H23+H24+H25+H26+H27+H28>0,SUM(H19:H28),"")

how to ignore errors when using DAVERAGE?

Ignoring Blank Cells In Formula

Feb 5, 2010

I am trying to return the criteria MET, NOT MET & EXCEEDS. This works when each cell contains a number, but when one is blank the formula below returns "EXCEEDS" I'm guessing this is because is sees a blank as zero.

=IF(BN102<\$BJ102,"NOT MET",IF(BN102>\$BJ102,"EXCEEDS",IF(BN102=\$BJ102,"MET")))

I've tried using this alternative but it still returns the same.

=IF(BO102<\$BJ102,"NOT MET",IF(BO102>\$BJ102,"EXCEEDS",IF(BO102=\$BJ102,"MET",IF(ISBLANK(B102)," ",""))))

Basically I need to know how to make excel ignore the blank cell and not see it as zero thus returning "EXCEEDS". Although the cell values are integers they are derived from another cell using the following formula, I'm not sure if this makes any difference

=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(BO11,\$BH\$63:\$BI\$87,2,FALSE)),"",(VLOOKUP(BO11,\$BH\$63:\$BI\$87,2,FALSE)))

Workday Function/Formula Ignoring Weekends

Aug 8, 2006

I'm at my wits end trying to make a workday formula work, but am having no luck. I've searched the other posts, but did not quite find a match. I'm trying to subtract a number of days from a workday function, but it seems to bypass ignoring the weekends (as is supposed to be done automatically with Workday). Here's the formula I'm trying to use:

=WORKDAY(H5,L5,' Reference Info'!\$E\$110:\$E\$117)-(I5/8)

I5/8 is a column with hours - this just calculates a number of days to subtract based on the number of scheduled hours.

The formula will calculate, but it still ignores weekends. I've tried burying the I5/8 within the parenthesis, moving it around in the formula,

Array Formula Not Ignoring Blanks To Count Row Number?

Oct 3, 2012

I have this array formula

=IF(ROWS(A\$11:A13)1,IF(MSB!\$A13"",SMALL(ROW(Table1[APP DATE])-ROW(MSB!\$A\$11)+1,ROWS(A\$11:A13)),""))))

the problem is that when both if statements are true i want it to get the row number, this is because table1 has blank rows (can not be avoided as the data is linked from a closed workbook)

i can see this works up until it meets the first blank row and i get #value error.

on table1 data exists on row 1,2,5 and 8 so my problem is getting the small function k to report these numbers?

Negative Time Formula

Dec 22, 2009

I can't use 1904. I have a formula that almost works.

I am doing everything in Military time. This is the finial peice of the puzzle.

Our shift begins at 18:00 and ends up until 7:00 (am) or so depending onwork

A1 I have a time (Projected-Estimate of when all work should be done)
A2 I have a time (Actual- Time the work was actually complete.)
A3 Will be show the difference in either a Negative or Positive time.

Three Examples: (The first two work as is and are perfect) ....

Negative Numbers In An IF Formula

Jul 19, 2006

IF formula

=IF(D9="","",IF(AND(G9>0,G10>0),"",IF(G9>=G10,G9,G10))+IF(E10=0,"",E10))

G9 and G10 can be positive or negative. If G9 or G10 is a negative number,
I want the greater of the two to be used and then to be added to E10. But
right now, Excel is saying -20 (which is G10) is greater than zero. I'm
getting a VALUE error.

Negative Value Lookup Formula

Sep 19, 2007

Possibly to combine If statement and lookup stmt. I have a spreadsheet that calculates principle, interest, and combined pmt amount based on certain amortization and payment frequency. In one cell I would like the expiry date to pull in (the expiry date would be the date that the fund balance would be at zero ie. all payments have been made and principle is nil). I am trying to make a formula that will search down the payment column and when it sees a negative number or zero, it will fill in the expiry date (which is in a second column) that is attached to that figure.

Formula To Change A Negative No To A Positive

Dec 26, 2006

This may be more of a math question rather than an Excel one.

If I have a spreadsheet with a cell that produces different negative number each time it is used, is there a way i can add a formula to make it a positive number.

So if Cell A1 showed -�244.22, I want to add an equation that changes if to �244.22

Cell A1 changes so it would need to do the same for any negative number within that cell.

Negative Time Formula Variation

Dec 22, 2009

(First please don't send me a link on how to subtract time or show Negative time. I know about 1904 ect.. I can't use that. I need a variation on the formula I am using if possible)

A1 I have a time
A2 I have a time
A3 I have a formula subtracting A2 from A1

The times will vary in A1 & A2. Sometimes A1 will be earlier or later thus giving me negative or positive times. I have a formula that will give me a correct answer but will always show either Positive or Neg depending on what I put in the last part of the formula "-H:MM or H::MM" =TEXT(MAX(\$A\$1:\$A\$2)-MIN(\$A\$1:\$A\$2),"-H::MM") in A3. I want it to do the subtraction but say if A1 is > than A2 then "-H::mm", If A1 is < A2 then "h::mm". I don't know if that is possibly or how to incorporate that into what I have.

If Formula: Show Only What I Need Instead Of Negative And 0 Balances

Oct 12, 2008

fix my (if formula) so it includes data from sheet 2. Sunday and monday values change but every other remains the same. I was given this formula and cant seem to add to it. Also is there a way to show only what i need instead of negative and 0 balances?

If The Result Of A Formula Is A Negative Number, I Want It To Put 0

Dec 11, 2008

I want to subtract column B from column A and put the result in column C. If the result is a negative I want a formula to turn it to 0.

Formula Returning Negative Time

Aug 9, 2009

the Times work fine 22:00pm to 5:30am or 6:00am to 5:30am

Formulas
J4

=IF(ISNUMBER(D4),(D4>E4)*MEDIAN(0,E4-N\$4,O\$4-N\$4)+MAX(0,MIN(O\$4,E4+(D4>E4))-MAX(N\$4,D4))-F4-L4,0)

K4

=IF(ISNUMBER(D4),MAX(0,MOD(E4-D4,1)-J4-L4-M4-I4-F4),0)

L4

=IF(ISNUMBER(D4),IF(MOD(E4-D4,1)-F4>P\$4,(MOD(D4+P\$4,1)>E4)*MEDIAN(0,E4-N\$4,O\$4-N\$4)+MAX(0,MIN(O\$4,E4+(MOD(D4+P\$4,1)>E4))-MAX(N\$4,MOD(D4+P\$4,1))),0),0)

M4

=IF(ISNUMBER(D4),MAX(MOD(E4-D4,1)-F4-I4-L4-P\$4,0),0)

but if I try 22:00pm to 6:00am or later

The following is displayed

Negative Time in J4 and the wrong result in K4

this is not what I need

It should be showing the following

and when i fill in a number like 100 at A1

And i fill in a number like 150 at A2 then at A3 where i had make my formula in there stands -50

Now i want the -50 not to disapear but instead there must be stand a 0(zero)

What is the formula i can use

i dont mind to put in at another cel like A4 for example

Convert Negative Numbers With Negative Sign On Right

Aug 1, 2007

I have data that comes from a subsytem that places the negative sign at the right of the number, so it is recognized as text. I can get around this using find and replace and then a second step to multiply that by -1, but is there a formula that can do this for me?

I was trying if(right(A1,1)="-",TBD,A1)

Positive To Negative If Cell On Left Negative

Sep 1, 2007

I have data starting in E7. I want it to go down the column and find the negative numbers. If it finds one then I want it to change the number in the row to the left of it to a negative. So if E67 is a negative number, make D67 a negative and so forth down the line Sounds "simple" but how do I do it?

Calculation/formula: ADDS Cells B1 And A1 (B1+A1) IF B1 Is Negative

Dec 15, 2008

How can i do this using Excel 2007. I have to cells, A1 and B1. A1 is always Positive whereas B1 might be Positive or Negative. I need a calculation/formula in C1 that ADDS cells B1 and A1 (B1+A1) IF B1 is Negative and SUBTRACTS A1 from B1 (A1-B1) IF B1 was Positive.

Formula To Sum All Numbers With Same Sign (negative / Positive)

Jul 23, 2012

I am looking for a formula to do the following:

In Tab 1, I have a negative number and the word "Original" next to it. In Tab 2, I have a mix of positive & negative numbers. I want all numbers that are negative to display the word "original" and all positive to display" new." How do I do that? Also, I want the opposite to work as well-- if Tab 1 has a positive number, I want all positive numbers in Tab 2 to display "original."
