# Result Based On Existance: If Coulmn Contains A Anywhere Then The Result Should Be A

Dec 4, 2009

I have 4 categories A, B, C & D. These are in desending importance, means A is most important and D is least important. Now there could be many A, B, C & Ds listed in a column. The challange is if coulmn contains A anywhere then the result should be A. If A is absent, then search for B, if present anywhere then display the result as B. It doesn't matter how many times A or any character is listed in column. I am attaching a sheet for better explanation.

## VLOOKUP Formula Dragdown Copies Previous Cell Result Instead Of Unique Result

Jun 10, 2014

When I drag my VLOOKUP formula down a column in Excel 2010, the return value copies the formula result from the original VLOOKUP formula result. For example, if the first VLOOKUP returns a value of 0.5, I expect to see 0.5 or 1 in the cell below that one. However, I get 0.5 which is not the expected result for the cell below.

When, I click the fx on the cells below, the expected return values appear in the formula result. After I click OK, the expected formula results updates and now appears in the cell.

I'm not sure what is causing this issue. My computer was updated recently from an old machine to a new one. I have never experienced this issue before.

## Print Result Cards Automatically From Result Sheet

Apr 25, 2014

I have excel result sheet which contains students information. i.e. name, subjects and their corresponding marks, grade, percentage etc. So from that sheet I want to print result cards for each students separately from the data (result sheet).

## Copy Formula Result & Paste Value/Result Only

Sep 3, 2006

I created a simple auto numbering function whereby Cell A7 contained =Row()-6, and Cell A8 contained =(A7+1). I then shift, and pasted the contents of cell A8 until cell A600. My aim is to simply copy the increments of 1 - 600 into another column. However when i copy and paste i'm also copying the initial underlying formula ie: =( A?+1), Is there a way to copy the results, not the formula?

## Fill In The 3 Criteria Fields, Calculate The Result, Copy The Result, And Place It Into The Correct Place On The Table

Oct 19, 2006

I have a macro that imputs data from an external database and puts it into a temporary worksheet. This data has 3 columns (ID, Date, Amount). I am then making another sheet which has X number of tables (one for each ID), with the years being the column headings, and months being the row headings. ie.

| ID X
| +------+------+------+--->
| | 1999 | 2000 | 2001 |
+------+------+------+------+--->
| Jan | \$100 | \$250 | \$300 |
+------+------+------+------+--->
| Feb | \$200 | \$300 | \$200 |
+------+------+------+------+--->
| Mar | \$300 | \$250 | \$100 |
+------+------+------+------+--->
| Sum | \$600 | \$800 | \$600 |
| +------+------+------+--->

| ID Y
| +------+------+------+--->
| | 1999 | 2000 | 2001 |
+------+------+------+------+--->
| Jan | \$100 | \$250 | \$300 |
+------+------+------+------+--->
| Feb | \$200 | \$300 | \$200 |
+------+------+------+------+--->
| Mar | \$300 | \$250 | \$100 |
+------+------+------+------+--->
| Sum | \$600 | \$800 | \$600 |
| +------+------+------+--->

Currently I have a few hidden fields for the DSUM Criteria. I start making the tables. And then filling in table based off of the month and year. Doing so I need 3 criteria:
>= First Day of the Month
<= Last Day of the Month
= ID #

The problem is it takes Excel too long to fill in the 3 criteria fields, calculate the result, copy the result, and place it into the correct place on the table. Is there another way to get this data into the correct tables faster? Instead of using DSUM?

## Sum Col B Based On Col A Value With Result In C?

Nov 30, 2013

What would be the formula in C to sum the numbers adjacent to A where the 47's in A = 36 from all the adjacent numbers in column B, all the 55's = 32 from all the adjacent numbers in B, and 18 = 12 as it is the only number adjacent to 18 in B.

When code is run the numbers will change in both columns (random numbers) so the next time there may not be any 47's or 55's in A. And new numbers in B to sum.

As I ponder this, I'm thinking it may require code, which is okay.

AB
553
477
5515
428
4710
476
4713
488
420
1812
5514
4815

## Get A Result Based On Several Different Conditions

May 20, 2009

New to the forum and in need of a bit of help. Friend of mine is in here regularly looking for assistance and tells me this is the best excel forum around. Thought I would put it to the test with a problem that is doing my head in.

The following is a table which shows a salesmans sales. He or she has sold to 8 customers.

What I need to do is show in the commission column how much they should get paid for the additional products based on this criteria.

1. If the penetration is equal to or over 41%, and he has sold the additional product for max profit of 250 then he should get £40

2. If the penetration is less than 41%, and he has sold the additional product for max profit of 250 then he should get £25

3. If he hasnt sold the product for full amount then he gets 10% of the profit, regardless of the penetration ...

## Get Another Value Of Row Based On DMIN Result?

Sep 9, 2012

I've got a database with 8 columns and many records. The task is to find the value in column 3 for the smallest number in column 7 with additional criterias for columns 4 & 5.

I've used the DMIN function for finding the smallest number, but I don't know how to show the corresponding value in column 3. I think I should only use DB functions. (I've checked and there is exactly one line with the set of criterias above, so there should be no errors.)

Is there any way I can specify to DGET that I want to get the minimum of a column but based on the other criterias? Or embed DB functions into one another?

## Unhiding Text Based On Result?

May 8, 2014

see the sheet attached. To put into context, I am a teacher and want students to work on tasks, and have the answers to those tasks available to them but hidden, until a give them a password that unhides it.

On the attached document, Lesson1! K35:Q41 i have some answers to the task beside it in B35:H40. I want to hide these answers in some way (without affecting the columns as there is data above) and then when I want students to see the answer I give it to them and they enter it into L43 in this example. At this point the answers are revealed and stay revealed for revision purposes.

This will be repeated using different passwords for different tasks throughout the workbook e.g. L52 will be a different password revealing the answer in K48.

## Result Based On ComboBox Choice

Jul 25, 2006

I'm looking to set up a combo box with different year options and add functionality so the data that can be seen on the sheet at a given time is driven by the combo box year value. (functionality somewhat like a webpage, where once you choose a certain value from a drop down box, you see data corresponding to the value)

## Return Result Based On Criteria

Oct 27, 2006

if Cell F42 contains 50%, then my fomula returns "wrong"

=IF(AND(0%<F42,F42<50%),"F",IF(AND(50%<F42,F42<60%),"D",IF(AND(60%<F42,F42<70%),"C",IF(AND(70%<F42,F42<80%),"B",IF(AND(80%<F42,F42<100%),"A","wrong")))))

how do I get the formula calculate correctly?

## Run Macro Based On SUM Function Result

Jan 27, 2008

i have the formula "= sum(A1:A10)" in cell A4 & would like to call macro when the value changes. The code i'm using below work's if I manually type in a value, but isn't working with the formula.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

End If
If Range("E4").Value = "F" And Range("A4").Value > "38" Then
Call MsgBox2
End If
End If
End Sub

## Result Based On Two Criteria Lookup

May 28, 2008

See the attached file. I think index and match may help me having done a search several times in these forums, but having been trying to do this for several hours I am just struggling to understand each part of the formula unfortunately. I have a list of data (cellsA1 to C33) which I need to use as my source for the information that is displayed in cell I2 based on the two selections made in cells F2 and G2.

I can't use filter and data sort in this situation - I am creating a spreadsheet for someone who truly knows nothing about excel, so I need this to be as simple as pointing and clicking at cells F2 and G2 and the formula doing all other work. Is it possible to do what I am asking for (hopefully the fact that peoples' names are repeated and months are repeated won't cause a problem?

## Formula To Calculate Result Based On Range

## Return Result Based On Time In Cell

Oct 2, 2007

I have a table of repair jobs done over a period of time. I just need to determine during which shift was the repair job done. The time during which the job was initiated is called Notification Time.

If the job was done at, say, 0100 hrs, then it was done during Shift 1 (0000hrs to 0800 hrs)
If done at 0830 hrs, Shift 2 (0801 to 1600hrs)
If done at 2030 hrs, Shift 3 (1601 to 2359 hrs)

I need a formula to allow me to determine the Shift no. by just checking against the Notification Time column.

## Return Text Based On Calculation Result

Dec 18, 2007

I need an excel function for this...

Say,
Cell A2= 8
Cell A3= 1

If A2 < (9*A3), then Cell A4 will say "Plastic", otherwise it will look to the next function, which is If A2 < (10*A3), then A4 will say "Compact", otherwise, it will look to the next one which is If A2 < (15*A3), then A4 will say "Semi-Compact" otherwise If A2> (15*A2), it'll say "Slender". so at the end, Cell A4 can only be one of these: 'Plastic' or 'Compact' or 'Semi-compact' or 'Slender'. How can i combine all the functions together?

## Hide Cells Based On Another Cell Result

## Display Result Based On Time Difference

Feb 15, 2008

I want to make a formula based on 2 times ex: 10:07:00 and 10:09:00. This formula should display "intime" if the diference between both is under 20 minutes, "outime" if the diference is above 20 minutes and it should display "error" if the time is under 0 minutes (this will only happen when someone makes a mistake typing in the time. For example 10:37:00 and 10:36:00)

## Color Cells Based On Average Result

Aug 2, 2008

I have a cell with the following formula: =IF(ISERROR(AVERAGE(A2,C2,D2)),"",(AVERAGE(A2,C2,D2)). I'm using this formula because I want to average the selected cells, but if A2,C2, or D2 are blank I don't want it to return the # DIV/0! error, hence the "ISERROR" part.

Now... I want to conditionally format the cell with the above formula in it so that if it is equal to or greater than 80% it's green. Here's the problem, the conditional format colors the cell green if it is blank too. How do I stop that?
Below is an attached spreadsheet to show what I'm trying to do.
