Making A Roster

I have been asked to make a formula that sums up the hours in a week and then tells me whether I am below or over the budgeted hours for that week!

I cant get it to work since I cant figure out how to have the same formula in all the cell that sums up early, mid and late shifts, ie 06-14, 14-22, 22-06.

The graveyard shift is a problem there since I get negative hours.

Further more, I need to have the formula ignore cells to be added up if it has letters in it, we write an R for Rostered day off.

Formula For Costing Roster
Been trying to come up with a formula that I can use in cells to cost a roster.
What I want to be able to do is just input start times into cells and the hours worked is automatically costed out in another cell. The trouble I have been having is that different start times attract a shift allowance eg. before 05:00 you get a 20% loading for the whole shift, between 07:00 and 19:00 is 10% and any finishing time after 19:00 is 15%, don't know how to write the formula to do this.

To Set Up A Web Query That Gets The Player Roster
I'm trying to set up a web query that gets the Player Roster from and one column is giving me trouble.

On the web site, this column is the player's height, listed as, for example, 6-2.

When the web query import is complete, this column displays a date instead of the height.... so 6-2 comes in as 2-June.

How do I massage this column to display the height and not a date?

Calculating Total Number Of Hrs In A Roster
I am working on this for two days , but I got stuck on the last step. I have a roster for about 35 employees. Calculating the daily hrs was not a problem. But I am doing the roster for one week. And I want employee wise total of hrs worked. I am quite confused as the "sum" formula works for some totals and for others it does not, although all the cells are in the right format. I tried to change the "result" cell to "number" and multiply by 24 to get the hr total as a number, but it does not work.

for example "SUMIF(E1:E57,"rafik",H1:H57)" ( this is the formula for calculating hrs for "rafik" on monday. the result cell is in "hh:mm" format and gives me the right total.

Likewise upto sunday the totals are right. What I want to do is calculate the total number of hrs from mon to sun. This seems to be impossible. the formula =SUM(H60:AL60) in a dd:mm format does not work, even =SUM(H60:AL60)*24 in a "number format" does not work.

I have tried "excel help" , tried to change the format but nothing works. The result should be 52 hrs and I cant get it no matter what I do.

Rotational Roster For Groups Of People
I manage an emergency response team which consists of around 50 people, made of 5 different teams and these folks need to take part in emergency exercise to keep their skills up. I'm currently building a training/exercise/ roster database in Excel and would like to add a function that tells me who in each team is due to take part in the next exercise. For info: In the actual workbook, I have names defined on the team members and using vlookup to populate the roster via a drop down list.

To explain the attached example; once the person who is at the top of the list (Name1) has done their exercise, they move to the bottom of the list. Then over time, as the others also take part in execises, Name1 is eventually is back at the top of the list the and it is their turn again (this is quite often known as a Squash Ladder, here in the UK). Is there a way I can vba this process via a button or even better (!) by a drop down list?

Work Rota/Roster Calculating Hours
I am currently trying to create a rota / rosta for work which will show people what hours they are required to work, in a format similar to below:

NAME | SAT | SUN | MON | TUE |etc >
Person A| 8:00 - 17:00 | 13:00 - 22:00 | OFF | 8:00 - 13:00|
Person B| OFF | 17:00 - 22:00 | 8:00 - 17:00| OFF |

This is simple enough to create but I also need Excel to calculate how many hours each person is working in a week and the total number of hours used per day and per week. I found out that I can do this using a formula to work out hours and minutes between two times. However what I would also like Excel to do is deduct the unpaid breaks which the person is entitled to, however this depends on the times that they work, i.e. in the example above Person A would be entitled to a 1 hour unpaid lunch on Saturday, a half hour unpaid tea on Sunday and no unpaid break on Tuesday. Therefore 1 hour would be deducted off the Saturday total hours, 30 minutes would be deducted from the Sunday total hours and nothing taken off the Tuesday.

Generating A Repeating List Of Names From An Ever Changing Roster.

Currently I have some formulas on sheet 1 that link to some sales data on sheet 2, but what I would really like to be able to do is use the search function on page 1 and it give me the location of the products in a given area.

The data is broken up into group location on the second sheet.

Making Add-in Macros Available
I've created an Add-in (.xlam file) in Excel 2007 and installed and activated it (it shows up under "Active Application Add-ins" on the Add-in menu for new workbooks).
I can see the macros and code when I go to the VBA editor, but the macros don't show up in the regular macro list.

I know that I can write code for the new workbook that will reference the Add-in code, but I want other users to be able to install the add-in and run the macros in it right away without any knowledge of VBA. Is there a way to make this possible?

Making Lists...
I have four columns containing about 200 addresses.

A Names
B Streets
C Cities
D Phone no.

If I write a name in D1 I want to get the corresponding street, city and phone no. in E1, F1 and G1.

I also want to copy the formula downwards let's say ten times so I can make a list.

If I for example just want to make a list of three names (D1-D3) I want the rest of the fields to stay blank.

Making A Button
I have a spread sheet that tracks progress reports that are due every 90 days. I have a due date colum that will automatically get high lighted if the 90 days have passed to inform me or my staff that the report is late. I would like to have a colum with a button in each row that allows the reader of the spreadsheet to press "YES" for that accont's progress report having been turn in. When the "YES" button is pressed the date due date column advances to the next 90 day due date and the highlight would turn off.

I used the conditional format to change the due date column to Yellow if =TODAY() is less then or equal to the due date. But I can figure out a way to select something and turn the highlight off and advance the due date to the next 90 day due date.

Making A Time Sheet
I made a time sheet. In this time sheet i made a macro where when I press ctrl+t it fills in the date in a column and the time in the column next to it. So to start my day I would press ctrl+t and to end it i would goa column over and repeat the macro. and then i made it so that in the fifth column it adds the 2 times together with this formula "=IF(E27>0,(IF(G27>E27, G27-E27, 1+G27-E27)),"")" formula works fine unless you make a "mistake" and change the ending time manually to a time that is early then the starting time but on the same day. So I wanted to see if there is anyway of the total time column can return an error message if the ending time is earlier then the starting time by looking at the date in both date columns. Im going to attach the workbook to this post. on the tabs on the bottom it is under time sheet. and i think the macros should transfer over too. ctrl+t is the time macro if you want to try it out.

I may have not been so clear on explaining it so ask any questions if that is true.

Making A Date Static
I have a rather simple question that I can't seem to find an answer to anywhere, even with a date stamp search on the board. I've found similar answers, but nothing specific to my problem.

I'm currently working on a department worksheet to track productivity. I have the formula in 2 cells to automatically display the current Sunday through Saturday dates when the worksheet is opened:=TODAY()-WEEKDAY(TODAY()-1) in E1 and=E1+6 in E2However, I need these dates to be static once the week is over for each worksheet and the workbook will contain a sheet for each week in the month (I'm not sure if that matters). I know this needs to be done in VBA, but I can't find how (if possible).

I'm new to this board and not a super Excel pro, so any help would be fantastic! Also, I'm working with the company's very old Excel97.

Making Negative Numbers To Become Zero
I have been working on an excel sheet:

I am working with stock options. Therefore I must subtract the current stock price Cell C2, which has a value of 23 with the Options price which is D9, has a value of 34.79 then muliply it with the shares which is cell F9 which is 4000. So the formula that i have is (C2-D9)*F9 that gives me the sum which resides in cell I9(total outstanding profit).......This turns out to be a negative number. I want to make it so that if the sum of that formula produces a negative number, i want that negative number to just become a "0". Ive tried the IF function but could not produce any results.

Making A Cell Blank
I have a spreadsheet with about 1000 rows. This is data that I've imported from another source and there are blank rows scattered throughout. I am trying to add columns together, but when I cut and past the sum formula, I end up with a 0 in a cell that should be blank. I've tried various iserror, isblank, isnull, empty functions, but am still getting a 0.

Here my example of one function I've tried:
a b c
1. 50 50 50 =if(isblank(a1:c1)," ",sum(a1:c1)) 150
2. 20 20 20 =if(isblank(a2:c2)," ",sum(a2:c2)) 60
3. =if(isblank(a3:c3)," ",sum(a3:c3)) 0

I would like that zero answer in row 3 to be blank otherwise I have to manually go through all the rows and delete these 0's out or cut and paste the sum function just on the rows with numbers.

I have a wordlist containing four columns A,B,C and D. In column A we have got Source Words(sw), in column B word specifications1(ws1), in column C word specifications 2(ws2) and in column D we have many meanings and target words separated by comma (tw1,tw2,tw3,Ö) for (sw). The interesting columns for our problem are only A containing words (sw) and column D containing meanings and synonyms(tw). The wordlist is supposed be get larger through finding, enhancing and adding synonyms in the same list. The difficult thing would be to make a macro with two modes. In first mode which asks each time before it adds or enhance a cell and in second mode the macro should do all the work alone without asking the user. The existing wordlist looks like: ...
