I have a formula in column A of the following sheet. The problem is that when the entry in cell H contains a letter as well as a number then the formula in column a returns 0.

Also if the value for false in the forumula is changed from 0 i.e to 1 or 2, then a value is returned in column A (this is shown in the red highlighted cells).

Does anyone have any idea why this is?

I'm trying to streamline my spreadsheet a bit. Sometime last year I managed to use the formula found (on the attached file) in cell K4 to assign a numerical value to a lettered grade. However, it's been a year or so since I thought about it and so I've completely forgotten how to edit it to make it more appropriate for this spreadsheet!

Essentially what I'm trying to do is a workaround for what I've already done in columns E and F: I'm trying to show the difference between two grades (letters) as a numerical value. Is there a way to do this, or is the VLOOKUP work around I've used in columns E and F going to be the simplest way?

it seems that excel is deciding what type of array this is by evaluating the type of the first cell in each column and applying this type to the rest of the array's column. Problem is that i want all values to be brought in, text and numerical.

Dim VArray As Variant

Sub DA201()

If FileThere(Path & "DA201.xls") Then

GetDataTowers Path & "DA201.XLS", "", "DataRange", Sheets _("Towers").Range("CStart"), False, False

Else

MsgBox ("File DA201.xls not found. Click OK to continue")

End If

End Sub

Public Sub GetDataTowers(SourceFile As Variant, SourceSheet As String, SourceRange As String, TargetRange As Range, Header As Boolean, UseHeaderRow As Boolean)

Dim rsCon As Object

Dim rsData As Object

Dim szConnect As String

Dim szSQL As String

Dim n As Integer

Dim row, m As Integer

If Val(Application.Version) < 12 Then

szConnect = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _

"Data Source=" & SourceFile & ";" & _

"Extended Properties=""Excel 8.0;HDR=No"";"

Else....................................

I have a list of data in Column A of a spreadsheet that is all at different lengths.

I would like to return the numbers from this (see below) seperately and also everything after the last number so returning "green"

Example:

EAST MIDS, YORKSHIRE0112012green

EAST MIDS, YORKSHIRE0112012red

EAST MIDS, YORKSHIRE0112013black

EAST MIDS, YORKSHIRE0112013brown

If for example, I have a set of IDs like:

Bellen-234-B25R

Carlota-345-C20RDF

Quad-765-Q20LP

How would I return just the first 4 characters after the second dash? The closest I can get is ALL the characters after the second dash.

Recently I have been practising writing my own macros in VBA. I am using Excel 2010.

I have been trying to write a macro to look at two columns in a worksheet (say, columns D and E) and to delete the contents (not the formatting, and I don't want to delete the cell itself) of that cell only if it contains a numerical value (e.g. 1, 2, 256 or any other number). If it finds a cell with letters, then it wouldn't delete the contents of the cell. The cells are currently formatted as "currency" cells.

I have been trying all sorts of things and I just can't get it to work. I can write a macro to clear a range easy enough, but I am stuck on getting it to delete the right stuff. I won't embarrass myself by uploading the code that I have been using..

Basically what I am trying to do is build a formula but I have hit a wall it seems like.

what I want to do to complete the formula is, I have 2 names in mind that I want to be able to enter one cell and have excel translate them into a number. So for example if I enter the name John in that cell excel will know that John means the number 3 and then tomorrow I erase John from that cell and enter Jim and excel will know that Jim means the number 2.

But again I want to be able to enter a certain body of txt into one cell and have excel recognize it as a number. How can this be done?

I have Excel 2003 and 2007

I'm working with a fairly large spreadsheet, and need to find out how many times a specific word or numerical value comes up in a column (for instance, I might need to know how many times 'Anderson' comes up in column B). Every time I try to use the sum, dsum, sumif, count, dcount, or countif functions, however, I keep coming up with either 0 or the #VALUE message. This is very frustrating, as you can well imagine. I could try to sort the data by the various terms and values I need and then physically count everything but this strikes me as time-consuming, prone to error (we're talking a few thousand entries, here), and something Excel should theoretically be able to do anyway if only I knew how to ask it.

I need a formula that looks at a Cell and if it contains any text at all it will return a numerical value into a seperate cell. I have done this before but for some annoying reason i cant remember how i did it.

I am a teacher and I want a column to turn a particular colour if a pupil has met their target grade and another if they have not. Our grades work as letters A* being the best then descending as follows A, B, C, D, E, F, G, U.

I have a column with the pupil's target grade (one of the above letters) and another column with their current grade. How do I get excel to understand the ranking of the letters and format the current grade column according to whether they have met their target or not?

In a single cell, I would like to show 2 values: a currency and a percentage. So A1 and A2 has values, say 50000 and .10 respectively (these are derived via formula, if it's of any relevance). What I ultimately want is "$50,000 and 10%". I've originally thought about adding the "$", " and ", and "%" separately, but I need the currency value to include commas.

I need to know if you can give a cell with text (such as a name) the value in a different cell (eg a total value cell).

Basically when the name is displayed I can add that cell to a team and therefore easily calculate a total teams worth by dragging names into the team's column.

I'd like help writing a single formula that assigns either a numerical 1 or 0 to a cell based on values from two other cells.

By way of background, I'm working with three columns. Cells in column F contains values from 1 to 4. Cells in column G contain values from 5 to 11. Cells in column H are currently blank.

I need a single formula that will insert either a numerical 1 or a 0 into column H according to the following conditions.If F3 = 1 and G3 = 5 or 6 or 7 then let H3=1 otherwise let H3=0

If F3 = 2 and G3 = 7 or 8 or 9 then let H3=1 otherwise let H3=0

If F3 = 3 and G3 = 9 or 10 or 11 then let H3=1 otherwise let H3=0

If F3 = 4 and G3 = 9 or 10 or 11 then let H3=1 otherwise let H3=0

So we have people's names in a table. First name in one column and last name in another column. We have a 3rd column where we can use 8 characters to do a combination of First 5 of Last Name + first 3 of first name. However, if someone's last name is only 3 or 4 characters, we'd then want to take more from the first name to fill out the 8 characters.

So:

Charles Johnson -> Johnscha

John Smith -> Smithjoh

Willian Wu -> Wuwillia

What's the best way to do that without creating some crazy formula with tons of if/thens?

but in cell e29 i have exactly the same formula =IF(B29<>"",LOOKUP(B29,STOCK!A1:A500,STOCK!B1:B500),"") but i returns #n/a

why is this and how do i stop it i want the cell to be empty unless there is a code entered in b29 in which case it will look up the relevant info for me

I had this problem a few days ago and NVBC suggested Text to Columns, which worked initally but didn't seem to 'save' or stick... also, I'm not sure what is causing the problem to begin with. It was my understanding that Excel couldn't return a truely 'blank' value. If a cell was blank or empty, Excel still 'sees' it as Zero. WHY then, for the Love of Gummi Bears, will Excel not calculate my formula. It's a simple formula!

=A13+B13

I've tried

=SUM(A13+B13)

I've tried

=IF(ISERROR(A13+B13),"",A13+B13)

But if don't TYPE in a 0 or a number, then it just does nothing. 50 + 0 = should be 50 not blank or #VALUE!. 50 + Nothing = should be 50 not blank or #VALUE!

Attached is a small copy of what I'm trying to do. I've double checked that all number cells are formatted to numbers, not text. I tried the Data:Text to Columns trick. I've tried Tools:Options:Show Zeros. I've tried Manual and Automatic Calculation. They shouldn't have to type in 60 cells of Zero to get the simple calculation.

I'm linking one sheet in a workbook to another. The formula is simple,

='Link 1'!E1

If there is data in the cell, it replicates it which is what I'm after. However if there is no data in the cell it returns a "0", not what I want at all.

I am trying to return a cell with a simple yes or no answer and having a little difficulty.

I have entered the following formula which is returning #NAME

=IF(E4<=1.25,ORH4<=0.01,yes)

Calculation needs to be as follows:

Install Cost <1.25 and Profit atleast 0.01

The YES NO needs to be in the Invite? column

i'm trying to figure out a way that would return the address of the cell that contains the highest/lowest value of a range i.e. =cell("address",min(g3:g6)).

if the lowest value was in cell g4, i'd want the output from above formula to be $g$4.

view the graph below:

A

B

1

EXTENSION 101

2

INBOUND TALK TIME

55M19S

3

OUTBOUND TALK TIME

1H22M13S

[code].....

I am trying to create a formula that will act like a vlookup but will return a different row. In other words, On page two I need to write a formula that says: In column 1 if you see "Extension 101" return column 2 of the row right beneath it, so on and so forth. So page two should return a mirror of what page one says, the difference is I would like people to type in "Extension 101" in a cell and it would return all the date.

A

B

1

EXTENSION 101

2

INBOUND TALK TIME

55M19S

[code].....

Cell A1 would be typed in//Cell A2-A4 would be static//Cell B2-B4 would return these numbers based on info from A1.

Cell A1 would always be unique in column A (on both pages).

The conversion rate is updated daily from telephony reports, and I manually sort it into conversion order each day before sending it round.

What I want to do is find the highest converter for each team.

So:

Column A ('TeamLeader' range) has the Team leaders in, column B has the agent name ('Agent' range), and column F has the agents conversion rate ('conversion' range).

I think I'm on the right track with this formula:

=(MAX(IF(TeamLeader="Bonnie",Conversion))

But this only displays the figure in the Conversion rate, how to I get it to 'step back' 4 column's and show the agents name?

I tried this:

=VLOOKUP(MAX(IF(TeamLeader="Bonnie",Conversion)),A5:F60,-4,FALSE)

but that returns #NA - is this because I'm asking the VLOOKUP to look 'backwards' 4 columns?
