Keeping Track Of Scores And Automatically Displays Names Of Players In Descending Order?

Feb 7, 2012

I'm fairly new to using excel and have been trying to create a simple spreadsheet that keeps track of scores and automatically displays the names of the players in descending order. Anyway I have gotten to the point of using hookup to match a value and return that players name. But when two players have the same score it will only return the first found value. I sort the number scores using a LARGE function and it works great. Then I use something like this =HLOOKUP(Y2,B27:K28,2,FALSE) to match that value with the players name. How to return the other players name when the scores are the same?

Automatically Sort In Descending Order

Jun 17, 2009

I'm using a table with columns from A to F and an unlimited number of rows. Note that there is a title at the top of each column.
-I'd like my datas in column F to be automatically sorted in descending order from top to bottom when I hit the enter key or when the number is entered in last column (column F).
-the the entire row of data needs to be sorted according to the sorting criteria of column F ( datas entered need to stay on the same row)
-the macro should validate that the number value entered in column F is the same as the number value entered in column A. (to make sure that there was no typing mistake)
-Result in column D must be the difference between the corresponding value in column B and C (B-C=D)
*The next couple of constraints are not absolutely required, i'd like to have them only if it's possible to add constraints with filling color:
-Whenever there is no value entered in column C on a specific row I'd like the entire row to be colored in yellow (fill color)
-IF a number is entered in column C, and that the result of B-C in column D is not equal to zero, I'd like this specific row to be filled in Red.
-when all the values are entered in a row from column A to F and that the result of B minus C is equal to Zero in column D, i'd like this specific row to be filled in a green color.
***in other words, the datas in each rows from column A to F will be entered on 2 occasions; on the first time, only the datas in column A,B and F will be entered (so basically after entering this set of values the row should be filled in yellow. the second time, the remaining values will be added to the rows, so at this time A,B,C,D,E and F will all be entered. when this is done there will be two options
1-the value in column D is equal to Zero then the entire row should be filled in green or
2-the value in column D is'nt equal to zero, then this specific row should be filled in red.

Keep in mind that the datas of a row should be automatically sorted only when the value in column F is entered or when the enter key is hitted to add a new row.

Keeping Track Of Payments

Apr 24, 2009

i am a builder and i want to make a spread sheet to keep track of what i have been paid and the labour costs i have paid out

so i am working on 20 houses that all have 7 stages of payment each, and 5 to 8 men working on them who receive a price for each stage, but are paid a portion of that price each week while they are working on that stage

what i am trying to do is set up a sheet to keep track of what has been paid and the balance remaining for each stage and what has been received

i have tried doing it a few different ways but im none to clever with spread sheets and what is causing me the problem is next to each payment made i need to put the date and the name of the person who was paid so it always seems to just look a cluttered mess

have any of you got any ideas of how i could simplify this and make it look neat and easy

or alternatively is there some other software that may suit this application better?

Vlookup In Descending Order

Feb 16, 2010

I'm running a workbook that has a list of all the runs for a day, and several daily driver sheets that automatically copy and order the drops using vlookup.

If you look at run 1 on the run listing you will see that holmfirth is the first drop and sandbach is the last drop.

This is also the case on page 1, as it should be.

However, on run 7 you will see that the first drop is Edinburgh and the last drop is Biggar.
The problem is that on the run listing form, we sort the run backwards so that it is loaded onto the trunk wagon backwards, then the load is tran-shipped (swapped) to the delivery wagon (dont ask) and the last drop on the trunk wagon (Biggar on the front end) becomes the first drop(on the back end) on the delivery wagon now in the correct delivery order. I need the daily sheet (page 7) to reflect the fact that Biggar is the first drop and Edinburgh is the last drop.

Keeping Track Of How Many Times A Number Shows Up

Apr 22, 2009

Say, for example, I have a spreadsheet as follows:

0 1 1 2 3 2 0 1 2
1 2 1 2 3 3 1 0 1

Is there a way to count the number of times a specific number shows up and have excel post it to a different cell? I need to know how many times a certain number came up for a specific row, and how many times.

VBA Functions - Multiple Inputs And Keeping Track Of Them

Sep 17, 2013

I have several formulas that I use over and over, so I'm creating VBA functions that I can call from a worksheet.

But...when I have multiple inputs going into a function, is there a way to remind the user which input comes next in the same way that Excel does with built-in functions?

For example, when you type in =PMT( Excel brings up the helper text so you know that the order of inputs is (rate, nper, pv, etc....

Is there a way to bring up that same helper text in my own function? So if I have up, down, right, left as inputs and give the spreadsheet to someone else, they can see it's up, down, right left and not right, left, up, down .

Automatic Sort By Descending Order?

Mar 15, 2014

Don't know if macro is better, but I would like to try it with function

I have 2 sheets.

Sheet 1
Column A: Name
Column B: Points

Exemple:
Name Points
Mary 40
Johnny 20
Erick 60
Ralph 30

I want Sheet 2 to get data from Sheet 1 and sort by descending order automatically.

Then it should be

Sheet 2

Name Points
Erick 60
Mary 40
Ralph 30
Johnny 20

I don't want to do it manually every time I change some value; I want it to do automatically; so if I change, for example, Erick's points from 60 to 10 in Sheet 1, Erick should appear on the last place in Sheet 2, with his new value (10)

Rank Table In Descending Order

Dec 15, 2009

Im stumped about what is the simplest way to do this.

Display Graph In Descending Order

May 11, 2007

I'm being asked to report on some survey findings containing 60 questions for my company. I've rated all 11 departments from 1st to 11th place for each question.

I want to be able to display a graph showing which departments came first, second and third and also where my department came - in the example of the first question, 7th.

What I'd like is a bar graph (ideally) without any values on the Y axis, the department name along the X axis and text labels at the top of each bar showing the position (ie. 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 7th).

The problem is that if I produce a graph from the following table:

Dept 1 - 1
Dept 2 - 2
Dept 3 - 3
My dept - 7

..then it produces a bar graph with bars in the opposite direction; ie the best department having the smallest bar.

I could just reverse the figures with 11 being the best instead of 1, but then the text labels on top of each bar are wrong. I know I could just label the correct figures by hand with text boxes, but I have 60 of these things to produce!

The closest I came was using the reverse values and having a custom text format to replace the numbers with the opposite text values ie. 11="1st";10="2nd"; but I couldn't get that to work

Any ideas? ....

Lookup Function And Dates In Descending Order

Feb 10, 2010

i have tried: =VLOOKUP(TODAY()-7,A2:M2000,3) to return data that corresponds to a date 1 week ago. Unfortunatley, it does not work because my dates in the array are in descending order. The order cannot be changed... is there another function I can use to return the value I am looking for?

Sorts Data By Column In Descending Order

Mar 26, 2012

I have a macro built that sorts my data by column in descending order depending on what column of information is selected from the drop down menu.

However I need the macro to sort column F in ascending order, and continue to sort the other colulmns in descending order when selected.

I can't get my macro to switch the sort from descending to ascending order for this one column. Looking to see if this is possible, and if so what macro formula I would use.

Here is what the macro i am currently using:

Sub ddSort_Click()
Dim iDdSortVal As Integer
Dim CurrSheet As String
Dim lFirstSectionRow As Long
Dim lLastSectionRow As Long
Dim strCol As String
Dim iRptMeasColumn As Integer

CurrSheet = ActiveSheet.Name

[Code] .......

List Lowest 3 Variable Numbers In Descending Order

Oct 15, 2012

I have a list of numbers in cells A1:A10, these numbers change frequently. I would like to set up a formula to calculate the 3 lowest values from those numbers and list the three lowest values in cells J1:J3, with lowest value on J1 and the highest of the 3 values in J3.

I know I can use the small/large functions for this, but im not sure how to work it out to use just the 3 lowest values.

VLookup Random Numbers - Sort Range In Descending Order And Return Relevant Value From Column

Aug 27, 2012

I have a column (B) of randomly generated numbers 1-14, and am using this formula range to sort in descending order and return the relevant value from column (c).

=VLOOKUP(LARGE(B3:B20,1),B3:C20,2,) to =VLOOKUP(LARGE(B3:B20,14),B3:C20,2,)

Works great, except when a number is duplicated, (E.G. 14,13,13,12,11,10,10,9,8 etc). It then returns the first value from(C) repeated, and not the value from the second and subsequent duplicated reference numbers.

Keeping Field Order The Same In Pivot Table?

Dec 24, 2013

I have a table with two columns: 'Serial' and 'Read Date'. The table represents all those serials that failed to read at a certain time and date. For example:

4028543 10am Dec 16
4028544 10am Dec 16
4028566 10am Dec 16

[Code].....

I know you can move them manually but I have 73 reads so far and that's a lot of manually moving columns about.

I'd like to get Excel to use the original order of the Read date entries.

Move Data In 1 Column To 4 Different Columns Keeping Same Order

Sep 22, 2008

I have a table with one column of data. The data in this column repeats with 4 relevant pieces of information that I want to put in 4 different columns (fields) in a different spread sheet (or the same would work better and I would just delete the first column when done) keeping the same order the data is now in.
The data currently repeats in a regular pattern (i.e. 123412341234 with no other data in between). I would like to do this with a macro. Could someone help write a macro that will do this

Keeping Track Of Data Over Time Even If The Data Is No Longer Visible?

May 20, 2013

I work in a medical facility, and I need to track data I've entered representing patient visits indefinitely over time. I've attached a weekly grid to this thread that I use to record which patients have had visits during the course of the week. It sums their total visits on the right. I need to continually track these because every patient gets an insurance-mandated progress update after 10 visits. Unfortunately, they don't always show up, and the most I can possibly keep track of is two weeks, max, and most patients only get two visits per week. Is there a way to dump these sums into another column indefinitely?

Sort Command - Custom Order Or Sort Ascending Or Descending

Oct 8, 2006

Is it possible to make excel sort ascending or descending but from mid way through alphabet and then loop through the alphabet again. for example. If Cell A1 had "A" in, it would sort as normal.

Cell A1 = A
Cell A2 = B
Cell A3 = C
Cell A4 = D
Cell A5 = E

If Cell A1 had "C" in, it would sort from "C" through the alphabet and then loop to the start of the alphabet as shown below.

Cell A1 = C
Cell A2 = D
Cell A3 = E
Cell A4 = A
Cell A5 = B
