I have compiled a spreadsheet and it has columns for the days of the week, Mon through Fri. I have written a formula in R9 which will add a range of comments in the Recommended Actions column (R) depending on what is entered in I9:M9. So far so good

Unfortunately when I enter anything in I9, then enter something else in J9 the "Recommended Actions" just adds another comment after the previous comment in the same cell as the formula in there references I9 & J9 & K9 & L9 & M9.

Can you think of a way to set it up so that when I enter something in I9 then enter something else in J9 it changes the "Recommended Actions" from the old comment to the new comment or deletes the old comment before adding the new comment?

Formula:
=IF($I9="OK","Working ok",IF($I9="No Modulation","Check Profile and modulation",
IF($I9="FLD","Check pulse unit and meter operation",
IF($I9="No Data","Check Comms",IF($I9="Low Pressure","Check pressure on outlet",
IF($I9="High pressure","Check outlet Pressure",

I have a list of numbers that I want to identify the highest and second highest numbers and create a mathematic result.

For example. I lets say I have 15 stocks "B19:P19" I have X amount of money to invest "Q21" I want to invest 85% of Q21 in the highest of B19:P19 and 15% in the second highest. If there are 2 highest that are tied I want to split the 85% of Q21. SO far I have been able to identify the Highest and show it at 85% of Q21 with this =IF(B19=(MAX(B19:P19)),(Q21*0.85)) but I am not sure how to get the rest of it to do what I want.

I am creating a holiday chart for absence, I have put the following formula in one cell

=COUNTIF(F4:NF4,"H")+COUNTIF(F4:AJ4,"HD")

Now when these letters are typed in to the range they calculate "H" and "HD" to be 1 - is it possible to have "H"=1 and "HD"=0.5 to then give a total in the desired cell?

Basically "H" is 1 day holiday and "HD" is (0.5) half day holiday, I would like the total from a range to appear in one cell

How would I write a formula if I was trying to get the cell to count all expired certifications (based on a range of cells and their expiration dates) as well as all blank cells? This is what I have so far and all it's doing is displaying "FALSE"... =COUNTIF(D2:D95,"

I am working on a massive Pivot Table but in order to compile it I have to copy data from many worksheets into one. My problem is that each worksheet contains about 11,500 formulas with references to other workbooks and cells. However, none of these is locked for cell reference (meaning none has the $ sign for row or column) so copying and pasting obviously screws it up since the reference is changing but I need to have the links active in the pivot table.

It would obviously take me a year to add 440,000 individual $ signs. Is there any way, a trick of sorts, where I can just highlight the entire worksheet and add the $ sign to each and every cell reference automatically?

I currently am using Data Validation drop-downs (which are identically referenced) in a number of cells (From J10 to J19). Each entry refers to a Crew departure &/or arrival time (based on an Aircraft schedule) and crew Subsistence & allowance ($17 per day). Referenced from “K10:K19” is USD currency:

I am trying to establish a way to specifically; select a particular day in the Data Validation drop-down menu (J10:J19) and a formula automatically converting the result to “USD Currency” for each of the 5 alternatives?

So in other words, each data validation cell will have 5 matching formulas pertinent to each specific orientation (Day)?

E.G.Select “FULL WEEK” from the drop-down option and “USD 120.00” is revealed / converted? Select “SATURDAY (DEPART)” from the drop-down and “USD 35.00” is revealed? ... “SATURDAY (ARRIVE)” = “USD 100.00” ... “TUESDAY (DEPART)” = “USD 85.00” ... “TUESDAY (ARRIVE)” = “USD 50.00”

The closest I have managed (with no real success) is as per the following formula: IF(T26="FULL_WEEK",X26,IF(T26="TUESDAY_(ARR)",X27,IF(T26="SATURDAY_(ARR)",X28,IF(T26="TUESDAY_(DEP)" ,X29,IF(T26="SATURDAY_(DEP)",X30)))))

I would be so incredibly grateful if somebody could help me (in laymen’s terms)?

I'm looking for a way for Excel to combine formulas together into a more compact form for me.

Attached is a very simple version of what I want, my actual formulas are very complex but I'd still like a way to have them automatically combined into a single cell.

Alternatively, what is a good way to break down a very complicated one-cell formula and still keep things organized?

Here is the one-cell version of a formula I work with.

[Code] .......

That formula is difficult to work with in one cell, so on another sheet I have it broken down into parts so that if one part isn't doing what I want I can change it. This takes up a LOT of space because of the other steps I do (the above formula is just one step) and I'd like to combine it together.

Attached File : Excel Formula Combination Question.xlsxâ€Ž

Problem-1) i want to round off the digit in the same cell i,e. Formula in F12 should be included in D12.

Problem-2) i have entered a sample account.in this i want to post the data entered in day book into their respective sheets of jaya and supervision automatically.

I am using a lot of linked reports that have to be rewritten each month. For example smaller formulas look like this:

=('S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING201311 November[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]Production Parts'!B$228*2)+'S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING201311 November[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]Production Parts'!B$262+'S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING201311 November[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]Production Parts'!B$292

What I want to do is extract the file path from the above formula and make it a composite of several cell references.

So what I need is to have a cell where they can change the month and another where we can change the year. So I set up several named cells that look like this:

I'm trying to add the sum of two seperate columns on two seperate criteria.

The formulas needs to add all cells in range B9:B149 that contain the word "OPEN" and that also contain thw word "MF" in the cell range of C9:C149 to give me a numerical total.

I tried using the IF, COUNTIF, SUMPRODUCT but the mutliple criteria is beyond me.

Is it possible to edit multiple =VLOOKUP formulas to add in a "[range lookup]" = FALSE without editing each one individually? I was going to use a find and replace for the "col_index_num" and add the FALSE to the end of that, but in this case my "col_index_num"s vary too much.

I am trying to combine three IF formulas that depend on ranges that vary. I think the attached sheet does a much better job of explaining what I am looking for than I can do.

I have a page of formulas, comprising of about 12 colums and 250 rows. Each row has a different formula (although there is a recurring pattern).

I will demonstrate what I'd like to do with a simple example:

Currenty, one formula is:

=E6/E15

I'd like to make it say this : =IF('Sheet1!'A1=1,E6/E15,0)

I can't Ctrl-H and replace, because each formula is different.

Is there any way to change an entire sheet of formulas at once (or a selection) to incorporate an IF statement? The formula itself that was originally there becomes part of the IF statement, so I think there may be a way.

i have 2 worksheet function IF statements that of course look for certain conditions, but in some instances i need to combine the IF statements in one cell, the 2 i need to combine are below:

so what i need is for the cell to show either Sick, Swapped or the contents of Sheet2!B3 however if both C1 and G1 show Line Off then cell must be blank, which is what i achieve with the second if statement.

Does anyone know how to activate a block of different array formulas at once??

Example:

N7:Q80 has a total of 296 Array Cells. Each has a unique formula & I cannot just drag to fill these nor can I activate all at once.

In the future, I don't want to have to manually activate them w/F2, CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER.

btw, Why do I have to press F2? Is that only in Excel 2007? I googled pretty extensively & don't see an option how to only press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER. It would be nice not to have to press F2 everytime.

I am setting up an excel sheet, which requires over 40 sheets + an Input Sheet. The sheets are names, sheet 1, sheet 2, sheet 3...

now, cell A2 in sheet 1 uses a formula, say: 5.42*Input!A2

Cell A2 in sheet 2, would have the formula: 5.42*Input!B2

so and so so forth.

Since I am dealing with over 40 sheets, Is there any way of simplifying this process rather than manually typing out the formula in each of the 40 sheets (especially since each sheet would have over 40 rows, with Sheet 1, linking to Column A in the input sheet, Sheet 2 linking to column B and so on and so forth).

I have a database with 10 properties of a certain kind of material #.

IE: Material 1206 is Black, SG is 1.2, Duro is 70, Cure, tensile, price, etc.

I want a user to select 5 criteria from a drop-down list and have the 6th drop-down box populate available materials that meet the previous 5 criteria. I am trying to do this automatically and avoid user trying to autofilter (have to make it easy). I've extended the database out to show either a "0" or "1" if the 5 criteria match, but I can not get them into a drop-down list with a formula due to a #REF! error. I am not sure where the circular reference is coming from or what I have to do to change it.

I have 100 excel file in a folder such as File1, File2, File3, File4 etc.There are some figures and reports on these files. format of all the excel files are same except values. And I have a master file.

As is: On my Master file, I have n number of formulas in Row 10,which gets data from the above excel files. eg. Master file Sheet1 Row 10, I have formula like this from Column B ='[File1.xls]Sheet1'!$A$1 [File1.xls]Sheet1'!$D$1, ='[File 1.xls]Sheet1'!$A$1 [File 1.xls]Sheet1'!$M$1 etc.

In Row 11,

='[File2.xls]Sheet1'!$A$1 [File2.xls]Sheet1'!$D$1, ='[File2.xls]Sheet1'!$A$1 [File2.xls]Sheet1'!$M$1 etc. If there are 1 or two files then I can type manually in each rows, But I have more than 100 files. So i need a macro which copies the formula from Row 10 to rest of the rows, If there are 100 files with different names in the folder, the formulas have to be copied to 100 rows in the master sheet.

if the file name changes on the formulas I will get the data correctly.

I am trying to do can’t really be recorded, at least i don’t think it can. I have a report that I run off and after I loaded it in Excel I then have to add in five columns at the end of the sheet. These are always in the same columns: R,S,T,U,V.

These are the formulas I have to then input R =IF(G2="no invoices",A2,"") S=IF(I2="Match",A2,"") T=IF(I2="Sent to AP",A2,"") U=IF(I2="Force Settled",A2,"") V=IF( COUNTIF($R$2:$U$10054,A2),A2,0)

Note for column V, the range R2:U10054 would depend on how many rows is in the report, its just in this example the report does have 10054 rows. The columns would always stay the same. I would then copy the formulae down for the number of rows that is in the report and filter column V by entries that equal zero to give me the rows I am looking to analyse. Is this the type of thing that can be written as a macro so that everytime I have a new report open in Excel I can just run the macro and it will do all of this for me?

I am currently having trouble with what I thought was a simple IF statement. As you will see from the formula I want to complete a statement for every month of the year but Excel will not let me go past July. Is there a limit to the number of arguments in an IF statement and how do I overcome this? =IF($A$3="Jan'08", SUM(C7),IF($A$3="Feb'08",SUM(C7:D7),IF($A$3="Mar'08",SUM(C7:E7),IF($A$3="Apr'08",SUM(C7:F7),IF($A$3="May'08",SUM(C7:G7),IF($A$3="Jun'08",SUM(C7:H7),IF($A$3="Jul'08",SUM(C7:I7),"n/a")))))))

I need to list only the unique values in a range found in multiple columns. Some cells are blank. I need to list all the unique values in numeric and/or alphanumeric order in another column within the same worksheet. I would prefer non-array formulas, if possible. See the attached file.

In the attached table, I have 5 columns and 5 rows of values in the range B2:F6. The unique values, in order, are 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. This looks simple and can be done manually if the file is small but I have 150 columns and 150 rows, thus the need for automation.
