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.

VLOOKUP And SUM Formulas: Pick Up Another Value In Column 9 And Should Add Value In Column 7 And 9 And Return It

In the first vlookup it picks up a value. I need to do the same vlookup function but it should also pick up another value in column 9 and should add value in column 7 and 9 and return it. Employee id numbers are in column E in the first page.My formula checks for the employee id in Su sheet and retrieves the value from the seventh column. I need to retrieve also from 9 th column and add them together.

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,

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.

Sum Numbers In Column If Date In Other Column Matches
I have a spreadsheet which will be completed by numerous users, with a worksheet reserved for each area. The spreadsheet is to record the number of days lost to training etc on a weekly basis.

Each worksheet has 3 columns Ė column A DESCRIPTION, column B WEEK COMMENCING DATE and column C DAYS LOST.

The table will be completed by the managerís as the info becomes available to them.

I will be collating the data on another worksheet and need a formula that will look in column B for all instances of 01/10/07 and then sum the corresponding cells in column C, then do the same for 08/10/07 and so on.

I have attached an example of a page.

I thought it may be VLookup or Sumif, but I donít know how to go about it.

Add Up Numbers In Column Based On Text In Another
I quickly put together an inventory form on our company server where employees can essentially just enter part numbers, quantities, and a few other things, rather than write everything out. So what might happen is, an employee puts together a list of 10 items with their respective quantities, but a few days later, another employee pulls up the spreadsheet and needs to add a few more of a part already listed. Protocol for the company is to do a separate line, rather than add it to the line where the item is already listed. What I am trying to do is, create a separate sheet within that workbook, that simply lists the part numbers, in order, with their total quantity. I have attached a basic spreadsheet showing what I would want, with a tab at the bottom labeled, "What I want."

Check & Add Sequential Numbers In Column
I have two columns A and B filled with numbers. Column A has the identifier number and Column B has number that represents intensity for the data set.

Column A can be anything from 75-1000, however, sometimes the adjacent rows are not sequential (i.e. 101, 102, 104).

1) Is there a way to automatically check for skipping numbers in Column A.
2) When it finds a skipped number, insert a row for column A and B.
3) Then put the correct number in Column A (i.e. 103) then put 0 in for column B

Conditional Formula: If Text, Repeat As Number To Sum, Else Sum Numbers.
I can get only so far, then stumped:3 columns (Hours, Rate, Amount). "Hours" is a 'List' with data from from another sheet. Data is named 'Worked'. 'Worked' is all 2 decimal numeric (represents total time worked), except first item called "Live In"
IF 'Hours' is "Live In", I can use: =IF(A1="Live In", SUM(B1*1))

How can I make it conditional so that if it's not "Live In", then it will SUM(A1*B1)?. SideNote: 'Worked' LIST has total time with minutes expressed as 1/4 of hour (i.e., 1.25 = 1 hour, 15 minutes).

Add Formulas To Range With Macro
I want to link cells from one sheet (totaldata) with the corepsonding cells in an another sheet (data), the problem is that the columns in these sheets to be linked are not placed in the same distance from each other - so a standard formula can't be applied her. I came up with the following piece of

Sub total()



ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=SUM('data'!R[2]C:R[79]C)"

ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Activate

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=SUM('DE PL'!R[2]C[7]:R[79]C[7])"

This code links only two cells in the totaldata sheet, and this way I would have to make this code execute additionally over 30 such lines, which would force me to change the C[7] parameter to C[14] etc etc manually.

Is there a way to speed it up without having to produce such a long code?

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?

2006 Travel expenses = $6,500
2006 In Kind Time = $2,500
2007 In Kind Time = $2,500
2007 Travel Expenses = $6,000

Add IF Statement To EXISTING Formulas Over Specified Range
I need a script that will search through a selected range of cells and add a simple IF statement.

For simplicity, lets assume the desired range is Q36:Q40. (The range is much larger than that.)

The existing formula is:=IF($Z37="%Sales",Q$9*$Y37,IF($Z37="%BS",Q$78*$Y37,IF($Z37="%YOY",O37*(1+$Y37))))

I would like to keep all existing forumulas, just tack on an IF statement before hand that says if a certain cell (Q2) reads "CoPrep" then do nothing, otherwise use the existing formula. I envision this as =IF(Q2="CoPrep","",IF($Z37="%Sales",Q$9*$Y37,IF($Z37="%BS",Q$78*$Y37,IF($Z37="%YOY",O37*(1+$Y37)))))

FYI, the background to this problem is that I am in the process of making a financial forecasting model that allows for choices of company prepared forecasts, hence "CoPrep", or model forecasts based off of other critera, both of which can be sensitized.

Add Multiple Formulas In Row & Auto Fill Down
I am trying to do canít really be recorded, at least i donít think it can. I have a report that I run off and after I loaded it in Excel I then have to add in five columns at the end of the sheet. These are always in the same columns: R,S,T,U,V.

These are the formulas I have to then input
R =IF(G2="no invoices",A2,"")
T=IF(I2="Sent to AP",A2,"")
U=IF(I2="Force Settled",A2,"")
V=IF( COUNTIF($R$2:$U$10054,A2),A2,0)

Note for column V, the range R2:U10054 would depend on how many rows is in the report, its just in this example the report does have 10054 rows. The columns would always stay the same. I would then copy the formulae down for the number of rows that is in the report and filter column V by entries that equal zero to give me the rows I am looking to analyse. Is this the type of thing that can be written as a macro so that everytime I have a new report open in Excel I can just run the macro and it will do all of this for me?

Add AVERAGE Formulas To Cells Using Variables In Macro Code
I am trying to have the formula =( SUMIF(S2:S125,">0",S2:S125))/(COUNTIF(S2:S125,">0")) Put into cells through vba. What I did to get the formula is typed it into an excel cell to find the average of a group of cells that do contain blank cells. The formula brought out the proper results. So all I did is put the formula into vba and changed the appropriate parts. The range will not be the same of course, but there is what I have.

ActiveCell.Formula = "=(SUMIF(" & ActiveCell.Offset(orow + 2, 0).Address & ":" & ActiveCell.Offset(-1, 0).Address & ","">0""" & "," & ActiveCell.Offset(orow + 2, 0).Address & ":" & ActiveCell.Offset(-1, 0).Address & "))/(COUNTIF(" & ActiveCell.Offset(orow + 2, 0).Address & ":" & ActiveCell.Offset(-1, 0).Address & ","">0""" & "))"

When I show a msgbox for ActiveCell.Formula (Msgbox activecell.formula), it shows me the formula as above - =(SUMIF(S2:S125,">0",S2:S125))/(COUNTIF(S2:S125,">0")) Except instead of the s:ranges, it shows $L2:$L125 (which is correct). The quotes do show up around the criteria in both the sumif and countif. I keep receiving an error. I put a msgbox err.description & ", " err.number dialog in. The error comes up as ", 0" (no quotes).

Add New Rows(preserving The Formats And Formulas Of Previous Ones) Dinammycally And Automated
I have a very large table with 7000 rows and each time I open the file it takes excel about 1 minute to open it.Initially all cells in the rows are empty. Each row in the table has the same formats and formulas(eg. in J106 I have =IF(C106=1,1,"") and in J107 I have =IF(C107=1,1,"")).So the excel allocates all the memory and does the formatting and computations beforehand. How can I add new rows(preserving the formats and formulas of previous ones) dinammycally and automated? An example will be if I start enter data in a row add another row at the end of the table or a button that when I press it adds lets say 100 new rows in the table. Below is the table, the rows in the table to which I add data start form C15 to C7014.
