# Returning One Of 2 Formulas Depending On Contents Of A Cell?

Jan 27, 2014

I have a cell in which I am entering either the letter "C" or "S".

I then want the following to happen......

If the cell contains the letter "S" do = IFERROR(VLOOKUP(\$B7,'Asset Growth Rate'!\$A\$2:\$F\$39,2,FALSE)*\$C7,"-")

If the cell contains the letter "C" do = IFERROR(VLOOKUP(\$B28,'Asset Growth Rate'!\$A\$2:\$F\$39,3,FALSE)*(\$C28+\$F28),"-")

The formulas themselves are already working in separate cells, I now just want to combine them depending on whether the cell contains S or C.....

## Delete Entire Row Depending On The Contents Of A Cell

Jan 20, 2009

I'm trying to write a procedure which will search the contents of Column B of my worksheet for the word "Total". Whenever the word "Total" is found in a cell within Column B, the entire row should be deleted.

## Blank Out Certain Cells Depending On Cell Contents?

Oct 21, 2013

I have a spreadsheet that can do more than one calculation on each row

ITEM
FLOW
(l/s)

[Code]....

The values in row A can only be selected from a named range drop down. If no entry is there (i.e. blank) then i'd ideally like the cells to return from black to white.

## Combine Contents Of Two Cells Depending On Contents Of Another?

Jan 14, 2013

I am trying to combine the contents of two cells depending on the contents of another, I have tried to use the If function but am coming up stuck!

I have provided a link to the example file below:

## Clear The Contents Of Each Cell In A Range Without Losing Formulas

Dec 6, 2006

Is there a way to clear the contents of each cell in a range without losing formulas?

## Returning The Contents Of A Non-empty Cell In A Range Of Empty Cells

Jan 8, 2008

I have a long range of cells (U3:AX3), all of which are empty save one. Is there a way to search through the range of cells, and return the contents of the one cell that contains text?

I would do this with a series of nested IF statements if there weren't more than 30 of them!

## Using Two IF Formulas (3 Or More To Count If Other IF Formulas Are Actually Returning A Value)

Aug 24, 2009

I have a spreadhseet with various functions on it and what I am trying to do is this.

Cell E4 returns a >35 or <35 true or false value
Cell G4 is either blank or has "Yes" text type into it.

What I am trying to do is get cell F4 to return certain arguments.

E4 = >35 and G4 is blank I want it to state "Email Hiring Manager"
E4 = ,35 and G4 is blank I want it to state "Wait"

I have a basic IF formula that returns this
=IF(E4>35,"Email Hiring Manager","Wait")

Then if cell G4 is populated with a Yes the formula needs to overwirte the origonal if with the return arguments of
=IF(G4="Yes","Email Agency","Email Hiring Manager")

If yes then what would be Email Hiring Manager (yes will only be input if E4 is greater than 35) will be overwritten with "Email Agency"

Can this be done with two If formulas or does there need to be 3 or more to count if other IF formulas are actually returning a value?

## Using IF Function To Use Different Formulas Depending On Different Rules?

Nov 27, 2013

I have got to this stage with a formula but cannot understand why it isn't working:

=IF(OR(A2=1,A2=2),(MIN(B2:B6)+50),(MAX(B2:B6)+50))

If A2 equals 1, I want it to add 50 on to the smallest (earliest) date in C2:C5.

BUT

If A2 equals 2, I want it to add 50 on to the largest (latest) date

The formula just adds 50 on the smallest (earliest) date, whether A2 equals 1 or 2.

What am I doing wrong?

## SUM Is Returning Zero On Cells That Have Formulas

Oct 31, 2011

I have a column of formulas I'm trying to sum. The SUM function gives me zero.

The formulas are simply pointing to another place in the spreadsheet so the contents of the column look like this:

=D11 (And it displays what's in D11... \$1432 etc etc)
=D28
=D30

When I sum those I get Zero. Is there a better way to do this? All cells are formatted as currency

Also... cell D11 is actually a sum of different cells. (As are the rest of them) So I guess what I'm saying is that I'm trying to display the value in cell D11 and D28 and D30 and sum up the total.

## Applying Certain Formulas Depending On Dropdown Selection

Dec 6, 2013

Any way to apply a formula to a cell depending on what choice is made from a drop down box in a cell that it refers to.

Hypothetically:

I have a drop down box in A1 with 2 options: Cookie Making Costs - or - Cake Making Costs
In cells A3 through A10, I have cells with the costs for all the ingredients (and B3 through B10 for cake ingredients).
If I select Cookie Making Costs, I would like B1 to apply a formula that sums up all the costs associated with making cookies "=sum(A3:A10)"
If I select Cake Making Costs, I would like B1 to apply the sum of the cake ingredients "=sum(B3:B10)"

## Combining IF And Lookup Formulas Returning Zero Value

Jan 12, 2009

Here's my formula that gives me an answer of zero.
=IF(IF(L14="L",(LOOKUP(B14,data!Y1:Y14831,data!AO1:AO14831)),0),IF(L14="L+R",(LOOKUP(B14,data!Y1:Y14 831,data!AQ1:AQ14831)),0),0)

L14 is a dropdown box, selection is L or L+R
The L true result is 30 and L+R result is 60
It should be possible to combine these should it not?
I would do a screen shot but it's quite huge.

## Delete Formulas Returning Errors

Mar 18, 2008

I have a formula in my worksheet that is copied into 7 other columns and then copied to the bottom of the worksheet. This spans about 10000 rows.

The formula is this: =IF(AC9="G",AG9,#N/A) When I import my data into the worksheet, either the formula will result in a number or will show blank with an error comment. I need to search through this range and then delete the contents of the cell (including the formula) if it is blank. For reference, the range of the columns are AJ thru AP. I hope this is specific enough, if not please let me know. I can attach the file if necessary.

If #N/A is not sufficient, then I can replace it with "x". This way if the formula does not result in a number then it will place an x in the cell. The macro would then search thru the range and delete any cell containing x.....

## Conditional Format (with Formulas) 10 Cells Depending On 1 Criteria

Oct 19, 2009

I want to colour 10 cells (A1-J1) if I type in yes in cell K1. Using conditional formatting Im only able to colour 1 cell. Is this possible without using VBA?

## Index With Multiple Match Formulas Returning Undesired Value?

Nov 20, 2012

I am building a tool for work, and in one of the sections of the main worksheet, I would like the cells to pull specific data from another worksheet that contains the results of a web query. The web query pulls a table of data, with a double header (rows 3 and 4). One column header is for the date and the other is for the time the data below corresponds to. There are also row titles along the left hand side.

I need a formula that will find the column that meets two conditions:

1) Today's date
2) A specific time (referenced from a cell on the main sheet)

It must then pull the data from the cell in that column that is in the row marked "Total".

Here is an example of the data set from the web query:

UAVAWAXAYAZBABBBCBDBEBFBGBHBIBJBKBLBMBNBOBPBQBRBSBT3
Total19-Nov19-Nov19-Nov19-Nov19-Nov19-Nov19-Nov19-Nov19-Nov19-Nov19-
Nov20-Nov20-Nov20-Nov20-Nov20-Nov20-Nov20-Nov20-Nov20-Nov20-Nov20-Nov20-Nov20-Nov20-Nov20-
Nov21-Nov21-Nov21-Nov21-Nov21-Nov21-Nov21-Nov21-Nov21-Nov21-
Nov22-Nov22-Nov22-Nov22-Nov22-Nov22-Nov22-Nov22-
Nov23-Nov23-Nov23-Nov23-Nov23-Nov23-Nov23-Nov23-

[Code]......

I have done quite a bit of looking on the web and tried out several different formulas/variations. I think I'm getting close, but just can't get it quite right. Here are a couple that seem close and their results:

=INDEX('Rodeo Data'!\$D\$5:\$JS\$50,MATCH("Total",'Rodeo Data'!\$B\$5:\$B\$50,0),MATCH(J3,'Rodeo Data'!\$D\$4:\$JS\$4,0)*AND(MATCH(TODAY(),'Rodeo Data'!\$D\$3:\$JS\$3,1)))

This one correctly finds the date and "Total" row, but seems to ignore the MATCH(J3,'Rodeo Data'!\$D\$4:\$JS\$4,0) section, which is designed to find the specific time in row 4. It returns either the "Total" row value from the first or last column with the correct date depending on which match type argument I use.

=INDEX('Rodeo Data'!\$D\$5:\$JS\$50,MATCH("Total",'Rodeo Data'!\$B\$5:\$B\$50,0),MATCH(TODAY()&O3,'Rodeo Data'!\$D\$3:\$JS\$3&'Rodeo Data'!\$D\$4:\$JS\$4,))

This one returns the standard "#N/A" error message.

I am using Windows 7 and Excel 2010. "Rodeo Data" is the name of the sheet that contains the web query data I have included. The J3 and O3 references are cells in the main worksheet that contain the time I want the match function to find.

The desired output from the formula would be if I referenced it to today (20 Nov 2012) and 19:45, it would return the value of 65,826.

It may also be worth noting that the number of columns and rows in the data set is dynamic.

## Sort Dates Linked To Formulas Also Returning Text

Jun 18, 2007

I have a list of football fixtures that I want to pace in date order. The fixtures are however linked to a grid which has the following formula =IF(FIXTURES!C1="","",FIXTURES!C1 )

so that a zero doesn't appear until a result is actually added. Unfortunately when you sort the fixtures into date order the grid still looks at the original square, NOT the moved one appertaining to the fixture.

## Find First Blank Row Ignoring Formulas Returning Empty Text

Oct 2, 2007

I have a range that is filled with formulae and the the number of rows in the range with data changes as the formulae reevaluate the inputs. So the rows with visible data changes between one row and 200 rows. By looking at the output in the first column of the range, Col M and finding the last row where the formulae returns data, I need a way of selecting across the columns of the range (M1 through to Qi) where i is the number of rows that have data in.

## Protecting Formulas In Cells From Clear Contents Command

Sep 19, 2007

I have a worksheet from which I regularly clear all contents by selecting all the rows and selecting 'Clear Contents' from the right button menu. However, I now have added a formula in Col Y that I want to protect. I know I could select all columns up thru X, but that would clear the R1 headers, so I want to avoid doing that. I can always work around, but I'm curious, is there a way to clear only values and thus protect the formulas when using the Clear Contents command?

## Return Contents Of 1 Cell Based On Contents Of Another Cell?

Mar 12, 2014

I thought this was a pretty simple formula but I am having difficulty creating it. I am attaching a little test spreadsheet. Sheet 1 is where the data will be entered. The Reimbursed column has a drop down choice of yes or no. The next 2 columns are the cost of registration and the cost of accommodations. On sheet 2 is where I would like the formulas. So in cell A4 I would like a formula that says if B3 on sheet 1 is Yes populate this cell with the contents of Cell C3 only, B4 of sheet 2 would then be B3 if A3 on sheet 3 is Yes and so on with the Not reinbursed if sheet 1 the Reimbursed column is no.

## Using Cell References In File Paths For Formulas To Create Dynamic Formulas

Dec 3, 2013

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:

_MONTH =11 November
_YEAR =2013
_JOBCARD ='S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING
_PATH =_JOBCARD & _YEAR &"" &_MONTH

I tried several versions, I am hoping for something like this:

=('_PATH &"[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]"Production Parts'!B\$228*2)+'_PATH &"[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]"Production Parts'!B\$262+'_PATH &"[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]"Production Parts'!B\$292

## Retain Formulas In A Few Cells In A One Worksheet So They Are Not Cleared By &quot;clear Contents&quot; Without Using Protect Sheet

Apr 8, 2008

i have a worksheet which is a form which feeds into another worksheet which acts as a database. i have a button which clears the form based on code which is essentially "clear contents".

the problem is i have a few cells where i would like to retain the formulas. i tried to do this with custom in validation but this did not work. i also tried to enter the code directly into the worksheet but this didnt work either (my skills are limited..). i am avoiding using protect sheet bc that in turn will affect many of my other buttons. is there something i am overlooking?

## Insert Formula Depending On Cells Depending Of Variables?

Jan 27, 2014

In a macro I want to automatically insert a formula in several cells. The formula depends on other cells, and I want to be able to manipulate these cells with variables. Here is my code:

[Code] .....

All my variables are declared:

Sheets("DATOS YTD 2014").Cells(I, Semana + 1) is the cell I want to be able to chose due to the variables
Sheets("DATOS YTD 2014").Cells(I, 3) is the reference cell for the VLOOKUP formula, that will vary with I
SheetMonth.Range("B3:W172") is a range in the sheet SheetMonth which is fixed

The error message I receive is the following: "Run-time error 13, Type mismatch"

I precise that the next step is to make the ",6," part in the vlookup formula also variable... but I guess once my current issue is solved this one will be a piece of cake.

## Loop: Macro To Go Through The Table And Preform An Operation In The Corresponding Cell In Column B Depending On The Value In Cell A

Mar 27, 2007

I have 2 columns and 10 rows (A1:B10). In column A are certain text values. How do I write a macro to go through the table and preform an operation in the corresponding cell in column B depending on the value in cell A? for example, if A3 = "Complete", overwrite the formula in B3 with the value (paste value)?

## Excel 2010 :: Change Cell Colour Depending On Date In Another Cell

Jan 9, 2013

I am trying to create a sheet in XL 2010.

In Column A each cell will contain a date (differnet from other cells in that column) when inspection was last done.

Column B is when the weekly inspection is due.

Column C is when bi-weekly inspection is due.

Column D is when monthly inspection is due.

Column E is when 6 monthly inspection is due.

I need a formula to change the colour of cells B, C, D & E when each inspection is due depending on the date entered in A

I am hoping its possible that the cell colour can stay for 2 days after the due date and then return back to blank after the second day.

For example if cell A1 has a date of January 1 2013 then on January 8 2013 cell B1 turns red then on January 10 2013 the cell returns back to normal.

A1
B1
C1
D1
E1

Inspection Date
Weeekly Due
Bi-WeeklyDue
Monthly Due
6 Monthly Due

January 1 2013
Change red Jan 8 & return blank Jan 10
Change red Jan 15 & return blank Jan 17
Change red Feb 1 & return blank Feb 3
Change red June 1 & return blank June 3

## Formula To Change Cell Colour :: Shade A Cell Depending On Condition

Feb 9, 2007

Is it possible to use a formula to shade a cell dependent on a condition? I have tried an if formula (see below) but it is incorrect. =if('November 2006 SVOC'!B6>'March 2006 SVOC'!C6,'November 2006 SVOC'!B6 [red],if('November 2006 SVOC'!B6<'March 2006 SVOC'!C6,'November 2006 SVOC'!B6 [blue],))

## Changing Empty Cell Background Color Depending On Different Cell Value

Aug 7, 2014

I'm trying to create a tag with a color border. What I desire is to fill the BLANK cells around the tag, A1:D1 + D1:D19 + A1:D19 + A1:19 in a certain color based on the text value of the cell B11. There are 5 different values, such that if the B11 read Red Sox - the boarder is going to be red, if it reads Houston Astros it will be dark blue, etc..

I have a similar problem with changing the color of the cell based on the month. So regardless of the year, 2014, 2015, 2016, etc... If I use MONTH() function I can just get numbers from 1-12. I want Cell C16-C18 to be certain color depending the date entered in cell C17 such that for each quarter, months 1-3, 4-6, 7-9, 10-12 they are different color.

I have had no luck with conditional formatting (and I also believe that it is good up to 3 cases only). I am decent in logic/programming language but have little knowledge with macro notation and especially how to run them in excel 2013. I do know how to start it alt+F11 and that I need to make sure that code is written under the specific sheet where my tag is located.

## Excel 2010 :: Conditional Formatting Of Cell Depending On Value Of Another Cell?

May 9, 2013

I'm using Excel 2010 and I would like to format a cell (say, the font of that cell turns RED) if the value of another cell meets a certain criteria.

## Inserting Values In Cell Depending On Content In Adjacent Cell

Mar 20, 2014

I have the names of companies in one column, and the amount they owe in cells in the column beside them. I then have a second list of companies that is a subset of the first. Is there a formula that would place the amount they owe in teh corresponding cell adjacent to the compny in the second list? I've attached a sample workbook, Full Company List in column A, amount owing in B, trimmed down list in D and ideally I'd like the corresponding values in E.

## Changing Cell Colours Depending On Cell Content

Nov 19, 2008

What I need to do is have a cell that will be say yellow until there is information put into this cell. The information could be in the format of text or numbers. The information would not always be the same so it would need to be yellow when there is no information in the cell and another colour or white when there is information in the cell.

## Replace Cell Content- Depending On Other Cell Data

Mar 6, 2009

I have a file consisting of two columns, called, "bom ref" and "material"
I need to show the data as indicated in the file, headed required format required.

In effect where I have a 0, that is the material I need to show for every row with a bom ref. of 1,2 or 3, down as far as the next 0 but not including the 0, when I reach the next 0, the material is a new letter, and that letter needs to repeat down as far as the next 0, but not including the 0 and so on.
