# Plus Sign And Equals Sign In Formulas

Sep 29, 2006My boss uses the + symbol and the = symbol in his formulas eg "=+E3*E4" What is the advantage or difference in this as to just using "=E3*E4"

In a formula, what effect does putting a plus sign after an equals sign? e.g.

=+((1+B8)^12)-1. I orginally assumed that it made sure that result the would always be positive but I was wrong.

I'm trying to solve a strange problem in a piece of code.

I have a variable that is define as Double called STD. When i try to insert that variable in a formula the decimal sign (for me a comma "," because I'm Portuguese) gets converted to ";" (which is for me the separation sign for the expressions in excel formulas. ex: AND(A1>0;B1>0)=TRUE). The code is:

When I try to copy formulas across do I get a little black plus-sign in the lower right corner of the cell, when I point to it. I can then drag the plus-sign to the the area where I want to copy the formula. This plus-sign has now disappeared.

I have a very frustrating problem with my business plan i am writing in Excel. every so often it crashes and when I open it again all the £ signs have turned to $ signs and i have to go through and painstakingly change them all. This also happens even if I just close the file carefully and open it up again. I have tried looking in preferences to see if there is a default setting but can't seem to work it out. can anyone help me with this tiresome issue?

but wait, the resulting cell T3 "=Jordan" already has a formula inside it =(U3&V3&W3&X3&Y3)

How to enter formula for removing "= sign" and not disturbing the existing formula ....

How can I add "$" sign in multiple cells such as:

=D7

=E7

=F7

so result:

= $E$7

= $D$7

= $F$7

A solution would be to use the "F4" every cell, but the process requires more time.

I tried to select multiple cells and press "F4" but do not works.

Why when I convert the following data, why the plus sign "+" converts to a /K?

I'm trying to convert values in groups of cells to a 3 of 9 barcode.

The value would be something:

+R4235

But when the font is changed to a 3 of 9 barcode and then I test the barcode in Notepad I notice that the plus sign is replaced with a /K.

I want to save phone no as +99 9876543210 in excel 2003 on my xp pro machine. But if i give a + sign in the cell, some blue dotted rectangle shows up and everything messes up.. I think it is treating it as a formula or something... how can i save this in the cell. tell me in detail if you are going to tell me about macros or vb code as I don't know how to insert code or program macros.

View 6 Replies View RelatedI got three columns in excel. Column A is a list of items, so is column C. Column B displays the similarity in the 2 lists.

I use the following command =IF(ISERROR(MATCH(A1,$C$1:$C$265,0)),"",A1).

SO:

A B C

Cat Fish

Dog Dog Roll

Bull Carpet

Apple Dog

But what I want to do is the following:

If I have "D-og 12 2-3" in column A and say "do g 1 22/3" in column C, I want it to be displayed in column B. To do that I need to decapitalise and remove all the special symbols such as space, ), (, *, &, ^, %, $, #, @,! etc.

So I get dog1223 in column B since they are the same.

I have columun in one row, if got sign (-) want convert to value 8,4,2,1 and this value convert to hex code...please anyone give guideline. thanks in advance.i has attach file please have a look.

Is there any way the next falling sign can be predicted in cell B56? And if so, what would be the measures to guess the next sign?

I'm trying to simplify a section of my code by naming a long string that is repeated. I tried by simply place the Name before equal sign (=) and also putting Set before the name. Both failed though I've seen both methods used successfully in other code. Am I having a syntax issue of some sort?

Private Sub ConditionalRowDelete()

Dim NumRows, iLine As Integer

ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Select

NumRows = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count

Dim CircuitType As Range

Set CircuitType = Range("C" & iLine).Value

For iLine = NumRows To 2 Step -1

If Range("A" & iLine).Value > "6999" Then

Rows(iLine).EntireRow.Delete

End If

Next iLine

For iLine = NumRows To 2 Step -1

If CircuitType = "VOIP" Or CircuitType = "Customer Care" Or CircuitType = "Dialup" Or CircuitType = "IRU" Then

Rows(iLine).EntireRow.Delete

End If

Next iLine

End Sub

View 2 Replies View RelatedGet a SUMIF formula to work, which it now does, but the formula puts '$' signs in the range, so that when it copies it, it does not change the range. I have got round this, by defining 12 separate ranges. But it does make the code rather long winded. Anyone know how to put the formula in without the '$' signs?

I have a column that tells whether an adjacent cell is positive or negative. I'm trying to come up with a macro/formula that will tell me how long (# of rows going down) a negative or positive sign repeats before changing.

So it would go down the column and count the rows where the same sign repeats. Once the SIGN switches from + to - or - to + the number goes back to 0. Essentially counting the cells that move in one direction (+ or -).

For example. if A1 = +, A2 = +, A3 = +, A4 = +, A5 = -, A6 = + then it would count A1:A4 and output 4 in B4, meaning that the numbers have stayed negative for 4 rows. For A4:A5 nothing should appear as this sign change we don't want to record. Same for A5:A6. I don't know how to make a formula/macro to identify a repeating SIGN, and then dynamically count all those rows until the sign changes. Does this make sense? I've been beating my head against the desk trying to figure it out with no luck.
