Oct 2, 2008

I have a formula:
=INDEX('Part Info'!E1:E300,MATCH(1,('Part Info'!A1:A300=A1)*('Part Info'!B1:B300=B1),0))

## How Can I Make The Cumlative Total Stay And Be Updated With Each New Entry

Aug 18, 2009

I have two columns D and E, the header takes up rows 1-4 so the first available row is row 5. The D column is going to have numbers added daily, the E column will show the cumlative total. How can I make the cumlative total stay and be updated with each new entry in column D?
C D E
Name daily cumlative
dave 20 20 Row #5
Jim 30 30
Tim 11 11
Sara 6 6

Say these are the entries for day one, I need to be able to make new entries in the same D column on the next day and have it update the running total in E?? I cant figure the darn thing out.

## INDIRECT FUNCTION - Make Data Stay Permenantly

Dec 9, 2009

I have approx 500 workbooks which contain custoemr details and I need to extract certain info (postcode, name, contact, phone number etc) and place it all on 1 spreadsheet. I was originally going to source data from unopen workbooks, but have realized I only need to do this task once, and I can maintain it from then on...

I have created a spreadsheet (attached) which uses INDIRECT formulas to retrieve the data. When I type in the file name in column A, Columns B to K fill themselves in. What I want to know is:

Once I open say, 10 Workbooks, TYPE the name in manually and all the other cells have filled themselves, I want to somehow KEEP the data there, rather than it return a #REF error when I close the workbooks to open the next batch.

Also, if you look at my workbook, to the far right is a range of data which I use in my INDIRECT formulas. Once I have filled all the cells with the relevant data, I want to be able to Filter my spreadsheet by Date Ascending. BUT I cant seem to do it because it includes my INDIRECT range in the filter and mess's up the formulas then I have tried Locking & protecting workbook, with Autofilter & select cells etc TICKED for users to use, but it still tells me to unlock workbook when I try to filter.

## Excel 2007 :: Conditional Formatting Of Numbers Will Not Stay Cleared On Reopening File

Apr 27, 2013

Excel 2007 Conditional Formatting. I am trying to apply conditional formatting to a wide range of cells. I only want the rule to adjust the color and shading, under the FONT tab in the section below. Specifically, I do NOT want to adjust the number format (I have the user select the scaling and use VB to populate the number formatting). I accomplish this by removing the number formatting by going into the conditional formatting rule, clicking on format, and then on the first tab (Number) -- on the bottom right there is button to Clear.

This resolves the issue perfectly, and I can operate the report exactly as I would expect.

Unfortunately, when closing the report (after a save), and then re-opening, the conditional formatting number format is no longer cleared. Worse yet, because it no longer is cleared, the scaling VB doesn't work, unless I go back into conditional formatting rules, and go to the number tab, and click clear.

Screen shot of after re-opening, no changes:

Report looks terrible (not real data):

## Formula To Hide Or To Stay As It Is Until Value Is Entered

May 16, 2014

In Spreadsheet B Cell H8 is also entered as Item Description, but if the Item Description in Spreadsheet A has been changed, I need Spreadsheet B to reflect that change, if not it should stay as Item Description.

## 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.

## Formula Needed To Make List Of Same Numbers From A List

Mar 21, 2014

A
B
c
d

[Code]....

So the data I put in Is Cells A to D the reast are calculated for me. so for example E2 is looking down column D to see if the number matches the number in A2, If any of them do it will put the name in the corresponding cell in E2 (Or you ca use a different cell if you prefer) so in this case D3=A2 so B3 is the answer also in the cell next to it I need whatever number is the cell next to the answer so in this case C3

## Make Certain Numbers Red

## Make Numbers A Percent Of 100

Nov 4, 2008

I have a spreadsheet with a large list of plants. Each plant has a breakdown of colors by container size. Each cell contains a number that corresponds to a percent, e.g. a cell may contain the number 20, which would also mean this number is equal to 20%. I want to change all numbers to a percent of 100, or turn 20, for instance, into .20. There are many hundreds of numbers that I need to make a percent, so I was hoping I could do this in one fell swoop somehow. This percent number will be used in another spreadsheet for calculating on order. How do I do this?

## How To Make All Numbers Formatted As Text

Apr 3, 2014

I have two columns with entries consisting of numbers. I'm trying to match between the columns but some names dont match because of the formatting.

Example

065 matches 065 (I have that green triangle on the cell that indicated "The number in this cell is formatted as text")

However 120 doesn't match with 120 (only one of them have that green triangle)

I tried to format all the cells as text at it seems the match only works when the green triangle is available. The green triangle seems to only show its self when I double click on the cell. I have thousands of entries so that doesn't work. I also tried to use the "Text to Columns" but it coverts entries like 002 into 2 which I dont want.

## Finding Which Numbers Make A Total

May 22, 2009

I do a lot of work in excel to do with accounts and this often needs checking against sage. When the invoices/petty cash sheets are put into sage the total amount is put in, but in my spreadsheets I need to split the reciepts. So I was wondering if there was a formula/VBA code, that if I only knew the total of the invoice would find which cells added up to this total?

## How To Make Conditional Formatting For Negative Numbers

Feb 19, 2014

I need the conditional formatting to make all numbers that are zero clear (i.e. no fill).

I need it to make all negative numbers to be red, however it doesn't seem to recognize "-1" as a number, and ends up highlight everything red when I say "highlight values < -1 red".

How would I do this?

## How To Make Sure That Only Positive Numbers Are Entered In A Cell

Jan 13, 2008

I am trying to restrict data input to a cell for only positive numbers. Currently, I have used data validation to accept decimals and numbers greater than zero. The cell is formatted for percentage with 2 decimal places. The "error message" alerts you that you have to have positive numbers only. The catch is that when the error message comes up and you use the 'retry' button, the entry is multiplied by 100.

## Make Excel Find Only Full Match With Array Of Numbers?

Mar 8, 2013

Code:

Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Dim c As String
Dim d As String

[Code]....

this works perfectly but I have found one problem, I want excel to find on the existing arrays "0,00" and "0", only full match and not only partial like for example:

-154.09, which triggers "0" for the second array and 120,00, that triggers "0,00" how to I change to only find full match with the existing arrays?

## Stay The Same Or Substract

Oct 11, 2008

In Cell O4 I have a number 35 that number never changes.

Now in Cell C40 I have another number that is a formula. the formula gives me a total of how many points are left.

In C42 I want the total to either been 35 or subtract the negative number from 35, the points can never go over 35.

Any number that is a positive or 0 will equal 35, if a negative number subtract from 35.

## Columns Won't Stay Formatted

Jan 9, 2009

I have Excel 2008 for Mac (vers 12.0). On a basic spreadsheet, the first column is for date which I have formatted so I can type in 15/8/9 and it appears as 15-Aug-09.

However, each time I open Excel after having Quit it, I have to reformat the cells in this column again as they revert to converting my date input with something like 39,123.

My other columns are formatted to currency and are always okay.

## Userform - Tab Selection Won't Stay

Jul 25, 2014

1. I have a userform I created that has a text box that pulls it's data from one of the spreadsheets tab. The userform also has 5 buttons I shall call Tab1, Tab2, Tab3, Done, Cancel.
2. The first thing a user will do is make a selection from the text box.
3. The User will then select one of the "Tab" buttons.

Below is my code. What happens is that no matter what button I click (Tab1, Tab2, Tab3) it ends up on Tab3 because it is the last transfersheet line of the done_click() sub routine. How do I get it to stay on the Tab I select?

+++++
Private Sub cancel_Click()
End Sub
+++++

Private Sub done_Click()
Dim transferworksheet As Worksheet
Set transferworksheet = Worksheets("Tab1")
transferworksheet.Cells(5, 7).Value = Me.ListBox1.Value

[Code] ..........

## Time To Stay As Text

May 30, 2008

I have a spreadsheet that tracks employee stats. Most of these stats are amounts of TIME. These times are being pasted from another source and the problem I'm having is that as soon as excel sees "1:02:03" it puts it in TIME format. The problem I have with that is later on I need it in text format because a lot of the other times are in text already. (the program the info is coming from will use ":59:59" and not have a 0, so I have compensated for that later) So how can I paste 1:01:01 and not have it saved as TIME? I cant CONVERT it to text, I need it to be text from the start.

## R1C1 Reference Style Won't Stay Gone

Dec 12, 2011

Every time I copy and paste cells in a specific workbook it changes the reference style to R1C1. Setting it back in the options, saving the document, closing Excel then reopening brings it back as A1 referencing but copy and paste will again return it to R1C1.

I've checked for VB code and there's nothing there either.

## Excel 2003 :: Get Some Information To Stay Still?

Jan 29, 2012

While using Excel 2003, I am aware of "freeze plane" and "split worksheet". The freeze plane comes in handy if I want to the first few rows to remain stationary and displayed while I can scroll down to the rows below. Similarly, the split worksheet comes in useful if I want to have the first few columns remain in place while I can maneuver to the right to see the other columns.

*** THE QUESTION IS: how can I get cells A1 to F20 to remain displayed and unmoved even if I choose to move the active cell around anywhere between G1 to K9999
