Convert Calculation Result To Negative If Positive & Vice Versa
I have a column of numbers such as

1001150
1001124
2224445

I need add a period in the following locations

10011.50
10011.24
22244.45

I figured this out using a format rule of

#.##

I then need to make the numbers negative so I did

-#.##

but this doesn't "stick", if I filter the numbers by negative numbers, none of them show up. So how do I make the formatting actually become the numbers? Auto Merged Post Until 24 Hrs Passes;After doing some more research I found the "precision as displayed" option. I can't find this option on Excel 2007, but I moved the files into 2003 and the option doesn't do anything. It is not permanently changing the column that I have added the formatting too.

Return Text Based On Calculation Result
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?

Copy Values To Another Worksheet For Calculation & Return Result
I have wind speeds and elevation data for 200 points. Each variable needs to go into a calculations spreadsheet on another worksheet. Once each variable gets put in the calculations automatically spit out the result. Now I need to use macro to automate this process so that it will repeat the steps I took for every line of data.

In English code terms, I want the Macro to say, take wind speed number and input in wind speed cell in calculations spreadsheet. Then take elevation number and input in calculations spreadsheet. Then take result number from calculations spreadsheet and input in cell. Then loop to go down the 200 lines of data. Is this possoble? Sorry for the non-technical wording.

Payment Function Giving Negative \$ Result
I'm building a real estate payment calculator. I'm using the Payment (=PMT) function in Excel 2003. When I add the information that it asks for in its wizard, I receive the correct numerical figures but with a minus sign in front of it making the result negative, i.e. "-\$630.13" instead of "\$630.13."

Calculation Result Is Displays As 0.0%
I am having a difficult time with a calculation. I took over someone else's duty who is no longer with the company. The calculation used did not account for entire columns & the data I need to pull fromhas grown larger than the calculation. When I hit "F2" to manually change the data array, everything works fine until I hit enter and then the result displays as 0.0%. When I hit the insert function button, the result shows as the correct number. I tried copying the format only from an adjacent cell, but this did not work. When I tried to undo my changes, the cell still displays as 0.0%

The original calc is:
=SUM(IF(cData!\$T\$2:\$T\$45998="Internal",IF(cData!\$N\$2:\$N\$45998=9,1,IF(cData!\$N\$2:\$N\$45998=10,1,0)),0) )/SUM(IF(cData!\$T\$2:\$T\$45998="Internal",IF(cData!\$N\$2:\$N\$45998<>"",1,0),""))

The new calc is:
=SUM(IF(cData!\$T\$2:\$T\$65536="Internal",IF(cData!\$N\$2:\$N\$65536=9,1,IF(cData!\$N\$2:\$N\$65536=10,1,0)),0) )/SUM(IF(cData!\$T\$2:\$T\$65536="Internal",IF(cData!\$N\$2:\$N\$65536<>"",1,0),""))

Formula Calculation To Be 1 Of 2 Values & Increment Cell Based On Result
I'm quite a novice at Excel. I have a column of values that I sum as follows;

A
0
0
0
0
0

0 <----------------sum of A1:A5

A formula may change one of the values in the above column to a '1' which means the sum will become '1'. The sum can only be '1' or '0' and only one value in the column will ever change. I need to add a value of 2 to another cell (say, C1) when the sum of A1:A5 changes from a value of '0' to '1'. I know this will probably involve the worksheet change event but am having a problem implementing it.

The Table Array contains a list of 12 months, and there will be a match to the Lookup Value in A7 each month. I would like C7 to reflect the last completed match in the list (it will be updated each month). So, when June is the last completed month, C7 will return the matching amount from the Table Array for June; then when July is completed, I would like C7 to reflect the matching amount for July.

IF Function To Return No Data As A Result
I've created a Database using excel which feeds data to a pivot table I created based on it. My objective is to create a new item in this pivot table (Pivot Table > Formulas > Calculated Item) which calculates the average data for the past 6 months.
The formula I used in order to get a result is this:

=IF(((May+June+July+August+September+October)/6)=0;;(May+June+July+August+September+October)/6)

and the problem is that the answer is 0 when there is no data for all 6 months (for example, there is a customer who hasn't baught anything during the past 6 months), the pivot table displays 0, instead of not showing this customer at all. My goal is for the IF function not to return any data if the result is 0, so that the pivot table doesn't show items with no data.
I also tried:
=IF(((May+June+July+August+September+October)/6)=0;"";(May+June+July+August+September+October)/6)

and also using ;" ";

but these formulas return #VALUE! in the pivot table, given that the Data is "SUM OF Sales" and "" is not a number.

How can I get the formula not to show anything at all?

In addition to this, I was wondering if it is possible to make this formula more automated, so that it calculates the average of the past 6 months, taking into account some type of reference month (rather than having to edit the formula each time a new month is analyzed).

Return A Result IF A Certain Value Is Found In Another Cell
I want to return a result IF a certain value is found in another cell. I've attached a sample workbook, but here's a description:

On the "Inventory" worksheet, in column H, I want to lookup the quantity in column B from the "Warehouse Response" worksheet. If the Part # in column E of the response sheet is NI1088106, I want THAT value to show under the NI1088106 part number, and I want the quantities for the NI1089106 to show under that part number. Ideally, the result of the formula would show a "0" if no data is found.

Here's the formula I tried beside the NI1088106 data, but it's not giving the desired results: =IF('Warehouse Response'!E:E="NI1088106", VLOOKUP(LEFT(A3,3),data,2,0))

Lookup Value & Return Corresponding Result
I created a drop down menu from a named data range on a seperate spreadsheet in the same workbook. Based on the selection from that drop down menu I want a preassigned number to pull into another cell. I'm not thinking of the correct formula or something, because it's not working. Could it be because it's text? My spreadsheet with the data is as follows:

Bridger to American Fork 051725
Hunter to American Fork 051725
Hunter to Delta 051715
Hunter to Hiawatha 051728
Navajo to Am. Fork w/ front 051725
Navajo to Am. Fork w/o front 051725

The 1st column is the origination/destination and I named that range "freight hauls". Which is what the dropdown menu on another sheet (AP Reconcilliation) consists of. From that, I want the 2nd column number to pull into another cell on the AP Recon sheet. The formula I wrote that isn't working is: =index('AP Reconciliation'!A2:B8,match(A6,'Freight Hauls List'!B2:B7,0),2)

Return Subtotal Result To Variable
I seem to be having a little trouble with some of my code. It has worked previously without error. The variables CMvN and SkMvN are DIMed globally. The only thing that I recall that I have changed is that I have changed them from Double to Long. Changed it back to test and still experiencing problem.

' Filter named range using a named range on another sheet
CMvN = WorksheetFunction. Subtotal(101, Range("Cancelled"))
SkMvN = WorksheetFunction.Subtotal(101, Range("Skipped"))

When I put a break point in above it then enter:

? WorksheetFunction.Subtotal(101, Range("Cancelled"))

in the immediate window, the correct value (e.g. 8.57142857142857E-02) is returned. However, when I step through the code and go for example from CMvN line to SkMvN, the value isn't assigned to CMvN.

How To Return Blank Result If No Match For VLOOKUP
I'm using this formula (thanks to dafan & HalfAce [url]
=IF(VLOOKUP(\$A177,\$A\$736:\$C\$787,3,FALSE)=0,"",VLOOKUP(\$A177,\$A\$736:\$I\$787,3,FALSE))
to return the value located in the 3rd column of the range when the value in the 1st column of the range matches the data in A177.

However, there isn't a match for the data in A178 in the range, so the formula returns "#N/A". I would like the cell containing the formula to remain blank in those instances.

Return Result & Formatting From Lookup

Every day people annotate and colour cells for various orders, depending on their place within the planning scheme. It's really only the formats that I need to copy across, I could use the VLOOKUP function for the values - So I suppose you could say I'm looking for a VLOOKUP macro/VBA Code which keeps the original formatting (cell colour etc.)

Compare Values In Multiple Columns And Return A Result
I have a spreadsheet with three years worth of data for a property I manage. Each column has cost data for the year and the specific department/cost for that year as the row value.

I have a column between the years that calculates the percent of gross revenue for the specific department/cost.

I would like to find (or create) a formula that will compare the percentage (or specific cost) for the three years within the specific row and if the increase year over year over year exceeds a trigger value it returns something (check me out/true/false) whatever.

The cost items for the property are in the hundreds so I'm trying to come up with a way to quickly see what specific cost items are going up (or down) more rapidly then what would be considered normal.

Formula: Return Result Based On Other Cell Values

if B5 is >3.01% then b6 =" Market Test Required"
if B5 is +3% then b6 =110
if B5 is +2% then b6 =106
if B5 is +1% then b6 =103
if B5 is 0% then b6 =100
if B5 is -1% then b6 =96
if B5 is -2% then b6 =93
if B5 is -3% then b6 =90
if B5 is >-3.01% then b6 ="Market Test Required"

So on and so on.... I would really appreciate your help on this issue.

I have used excel for some time now but not with complex formulas or any vb.

Lookup Value In Row & Return Result X Rows Down
I am working on a spreadsheet for some packages we are sending to multiple recipients. I have figured out how to get all the weights calculated, now my Mailing Manager has asked me to come up with a calculation for the actual postage amount for all the 1400+ packages...Unfortunately it is not as easy as that would seem.

There are 9 different mailing zones and each zone has 19 weight categories and each category has a corresponding postage amount for the package. So I need to come up with a formula to calculate the package postage amount based on those multiple categories.

For example:
Zone 1:
0-1lb = \$2.12
1.1-1.5lb = \$2.12
1.6-2lb = \$2.21
etc

How do I go about entering in that information from which a formula can determine the proper package postage cost and what formula do I need to use in conjunction.

This is all done within a address list so each package is a row and all weights and zones will be in a separate column.

Package is in zone X and weighs Y pounds therefore the postage is Z. Something like that.

Multiply Numbers & Return X Percent Of Result
I have an inherited formula and I am not sure if it is giving me the correct answer. It is:

=0.03*668*0.75*0.10
The result is 1.503

What I am aiming for is to get 3% and 25% of 688, deduct the results from 688 and then get 10% of that answer.

Is the inherited formula correct?
