SUM Formulas: Add Together The Numbers In A Column

I'd like to use a SUM formula to add together the numbers in a column, however i would like to do this missing some rows out........ ie; A1:A11 plus A13:A20 plus A22:A30.

I would also like to do this with another column containg fractions.

Dynamic Formulas- List Of Serial Numbers In A Column
i have a list of serial numbers in a column, say column a, for example, and i have corresponding data in columns to the right of this, say just column B for example- I also have a header on column B which counts the data in column b. (just a COUNTA, counting occurences of 'x' )

my issue is this: i need to limit the range of the COUNTA dynamically- by the number of serial numbers in column A. for example: if i have 10 serial numbers, i want my COUNTA range to be B1:B10 (excluding header) and... i need this to be a built-in formula, NOT a VBA macro. i need it to update automatically, as soon as another serial number is entered. i've tried using references to named ranges and all sorts of language tricks, and i cant seem to get it to work. (such as:

' =counta(b1:namedrange1)

i'm going to have to do the same thing with COUNTIF's, so if that is also easily explainable,

LEN And MID Formulas With Numbers
I am trying to be able enter an a dollar amount into one cell and have the numbers separate into their own cells further down the page. It works basically but if I have room below to hold 10000000.00 and I only enter 100.00, the output looks something like #######100.00.

I have an IF formula using LEN and MID formulas in each of the cells. So if nothing is entered, a VALUE error appears in each cell. Is there a way around this? I will paste the formula and the Excel screenshot using the lovely HTML maker below: ...

Text And Numbers In Formulas
B1, C1, E1, F1, H1, I1, K1, L1, N1, O1 will contain 1 of 10 different names (John, James, David, Jack, Alex, Aaron, Jason, Stan, Robert, Will)

I need A25 to pull the info from B1
A26 to pull the info from C1
A27 to pull the info from E1

If B1 and E1 have the same name then A27 should be blank.

Also C15, G15, and K15 contain a number. If A25 is not blank, then B25 should equal C15; If A26 is not blank, then B26 should equal C15;
If A27 is not blank, then B27 should equal K15. However, if B1 and E1 contains the same name, then A25 should equal C15 + K15.

If B1=John C1=James E1=David F1=Jack
and C15=10 G15=15 K15=20

then A25=John A26=James A27=David A28=Jack
and B25=10 (C15) B26=10 (C15) B27=15 (G15)

But if B1=John C1=James E1=John F1=Jack
and C15=10 G15=15 K15=20
then A25=John A26=James A27=(blank because John is already listed in A25) A28=Jack
and B25=25 (C15+G15) B26=10 B27=(blank) B28=15(G15).

Ignore Numbers In Formulas
I have several excel spreadsheets cataloging the right ascension transit times of various extrasolar planets. I need to convert all the times (in 24-hour format) from UT to PDT (that is, subtract seven hours). Unfortunately, each transit time is included in the same cell as the date the exoplanet's star is visible, like so:

Now, I have a lot of data that I need to convert. I do not want to go through manually and change each cell's value manually. Unfortunately, I cannot figure out a way to use a formula to do so; I do not want to modify the date (the top value of each cell), and the colon separating hours from minutes screws up the rest of the formula.

So, how can I use excel to automatically subtract seven hours from the bottom value of each cell, without doing anything to the rest of the numbers in each cell?

Is There A Non-macro Way To Autosort Numbers With Formulas
I need to find a way to autosort a series of numbers, inputted manually for example, in cells A1 through A15. The autosort function needs to put the numbers in descending or ascending (either way, doesn't matter) in cells B1 through B15.

In effect, if the numbers inputted into the first cells change daily, then the correct order of these be automatically sorted so that they are in a specific order.

The closest I can come WORKS, but I'm using about 300 filter formulas to do so.

Color Format On Numbers Vs Formulas
Is there a way, WITHOUT VBA, to have a cell turn color if a user overlays a function with a value. Using conditional formatting or an easier way if possible, I would like to have any cells that the user overlays with a number to have a different background color.

I know I could use an event-driven macro but am trying to find a function that can check a cell to see if it contains a formula (or function) or a value.

Seeking Way To Display Numbers Underlying Formulas
I'm looking for an answer about how I can show the numbers underlying a
nested IF function. The formula works fine, but I need to be able to show
how I arrived at the numbers that I did. Here is an example of one of the formulas:


Instead of the reference to the cell, I would like the formula that the cell represents. I know that I could go through individually and pull each piece apart with control F9, but since there are numerous cells and because the data changes every time I create a new budget, it would help if I could have some way to display it all with one action.

Format Formulas, Constants, Numbers & Text Cells Differently
I am attempting to write a VBA function that will add textual formatting to each cell that has content. I am just learning VBA; so far, as an example I have

Sub NewSub()
i = 1
j = 1
Cells(i, j) = "'" & Range(i.j).Value & "',"
i = i + 1
Loop Until i = 40
End Sub

but, as I'm sure you'll notice, it does not work. In essence I want to wrap quotes and follow with a comma each cell that contains any content. The actual content test I haven't gotten to yet.

Copying Formulas From Column To Column
In the attached spreadsheet, I am trying to drag the formula from one column to the next but I need the same cells to be used in every column with the exception of one cell. For instance, the formula I want to use is in the cell highlighted yellow. In the next cell over (highlighted blue) I want the formula to use the same D and E cells with the only change being the first part of each (G). Both the blue and yellow cell represent what I want to do. For example, the next column (H) would have (H4+D4+E4) in the first part. Column I would have (I4+D4+E4), and so on.

The D and E columns will be in every equation for each column. The problem is that excel wants to use the next column over instead of keeping D and E in each. How do I drag these equations so that it just changes the first part and keeps the D and E columns the same?

Formulas For Different Values In One Column
I have a column of values (Sold Price) for which I need to figure extra fees related to that cost, but they vary depending on the cost. The different fees associated with the Sold Price are:
A. If SP is $.01 - $25, fee is 10% of SP
B. If SP is $25.01 - $100, fee is 10% of 1st $25, plus 7% of remaining balance
C. If SP is $100.01 - $1,000, fee is 10% of 1st $25, plus 7% of next $25.01 - 100.00, plus 5% of remaining balance over 100

So I need one formula to go into the fee column which will work with all values of the SP column.

Copy Formulas Down / Across To Last Used Row & Column
Greetings Wizards of Oz! I have a workbook with financial data on two sheets in columns A - G on each sheet and formulas in columns H through P on both sheets which compares the data on the two sheets. What I would like is for the formulas to autofill down the same number of rows as there is data on each sheet. I currently have the formulas copying down 500 rows using the following macro but I'd like to do it properly.

Sub Copy_Formulas_Down()
Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlToRight)).Select
Application.CutCopyMode = False
End Sub

I experimented using FillDown from something I found in another post and modified it successfully - or so I thought - this script runs fine on one sheet but not the other. I get "Selection too big" when I run it on the second sheet. I think it has something to do with excel "remembering" that at one time I had data in all 65536 rows but I don't know what to do about it.

Sub Copy_Formulas_Down()
Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlToRight)).Select
Range(Selection, ActiveCell.Offset(0, -1).End(xlDown).Offset(0, 1)).FillDown
End Sub.......................

Show Sum Of Numbers In One Column IF Another Column Has A Specific Category
I have a worksheet which basically tracks time. the time is reported in Column C. In that row in Column E, there is a validation list with about 6 different categories in it. On the side of this "table" I have a list of all the categories and I want a value to be next to it that reports the sum of time (C) for each category (E).

So for the "Routing" category, I would want the value to be the sum of just data on the timesheet that have "routing" in Column E.

Formulas Change When Column/row Is Deleted. How Can I Stop That
I have a spreadsheet that holds the NHL schedule for the season. (See thumbnail)

In the picture I've highlighted the formula I use to determine how many games each team has over the next 7, 14, 21 and 28 days. What I've been doing is deleting the column for each day after that day has passed. (So tomorrow, I'll delete column K, and all the other days will move up one. Sunday will become column K)

My problem is that the formula =7-COUNTIF($K3:$Q3,"—") in cell G3 will read =7-COUNTIF($K3:$P3,"—") after I have deleted Saturday, and thus will only count 6 days worth. (The 14, 21 and 28 columns will only count 13, 20 and 27 as well.) Is there any way I can write this formula so that it stays as K3:Q3? Right now each day I modify the 4 formulas for the 1st team and then copy/paste then over the other 30, but this is rather tedious.

Alternative To Full Column Reference In Formulas
I'm actually having difficulty with the sumproduct function, I'm trying to count items based on multiple criteria (and yes I have looked under that). I'm using a very helpful formula that I grabbed from this site. =SUMPRODUCT(1*(base!$B$1:$B$19465=locations!B$1),1*(base!$A$1:$A$19465=locations!$A6))

The problem that I have is that this doesn't work if I replace $B$1:$B$19465 with $B:$B. now as the number of rows on the base sheet may change, this means I need to change the formula each time I change the data on the base sheet which is somewhat ridiculous. I've been playing around with indirect trying to reference the last cell in a range, but I don't seem to be getting anywhere with that.
