I have a set of data as attached where the productivity of each staff is recorded on a daily basis.However, the cell in which their name is located on each tab of the day of the month might not be the same. I am thankful that the forum actually provided me with the formula located in cell c15.

1)However, I would appreciate if someone could translate what the formula means as I am not so sure what the formula represents.

2)The reason is I would like to calculate how many training days (TR), Medical Leave(ML) and Emergency Leave(EL) for the month of January for each staff.I tried modifying the formula but it didnt work.

3) Is it possible to use a vlookup function for this solution?

I am trying to sum the same data across several tabs but I am using information in the column and row headers to find it. For some reason this formula wont work and I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.

TRANS_Cost = B:B on FEB tab TRANS_Cat1 = C:C on FEB tab TRANS_Cat2 = D:D on FEB tab CAT_Main3 = "Everyday_Expenses" TRANS_Status = E:E

In short the formula adds the total cost of anything 'tagged' as Everyday_expenses, computer items, paid. I want to adapt it so that it takes the value from a defined cell such as Month, so that data can be pulled by month.

I am trying to do a dynamic sumifs that allows the user to use data validation lists to select 5 items to query. This is the easy part.

The hard part is that the amounts range to sum goes across 6 weeks and I want the answer to also take account of another validation input which specifies up to what week the range should be.

I have done a simply if statement in row 8 that flags weeks relevant to input cell B6.

How do I do a formula in say cell A16 that does the sumifs and acknowledges that the user has requested a dynamic range to sum?

The following formula sorts for specifics in the sheet named 200910 in the specified ranges in columns A and D to return a total found in column AB. This works just fine.

What I am looking to do, instead of telling excel what sheet to go to, is insert this: =INDIRECT(TEXT(Y10,"yyymm")&"!ab1749") to find the matching sheet name to the date that resides in cell Y10.

These both work separately on their own to return the needed value. How do I put them into one formula without telling excel what sheet to go to (1st formula) and specifically what cell to go to (2nd formula) because the cell location may change and I want to completely automate this?

Column A has got random numbers, my formula attemts to capture the count of numbers as specified in B1, is there a way I can nest an indired t formula to mention in cell C1 ( > or < ) so it can look for numbers greater than the number in B1 or lesser as indicated

I am trying to stream line the recording of time tickets . I would like to create a Summary sheet that shows the amount of hours each worker has done based on that particular day. The trick is I want the summary sheet to be automatically updated when the each individual time ticket sheet is completed. I would also like to be able to drag the formula across a row so I do not have to recreate the equation each time a new time ticket sheet is completed. Each time ticket sheet is its own sheet and is identified by date. Each time ticket ticket sheet is identical and is already created to so all you have to do is click on that the sheet reflecting the date and fill in the information.

This is the equation I have created but keep getting #VALUE!

The sum_range is Manhours from L11:L34 for each time ticket sheet. The criteria_range1 is date in cell B6 listed on each time ticket sheet, criteria1 is date listed on cell J8 of the summary sheet . The criteria_range2 is names from C11:C34 for each time ticket sheet, criteria2 is name of person on cell I9 of the summary sheet.

Each sheet is labeled as 8-19-13, 8-20-13, 8-21-13, and so on. Summary sheet is labeled as Summary

The table that I am using to record the data on the summary sheet has the date increasing by one day on row 8. The names are vertically listed on column I.

I have a need to sum values in the right column of a 2 column table based on multiple criteria of the values in the left hand column. The table has 500 rows.

The two criteria are: 1 - that the cell contains a specific text string ("product a")and 2 - that the cell contains a text string for the month in question ("Jan")

The other limitation I have to work with is that the formula is in a different workbook to the source data. I have a worksheet that lists the external workbook/sheet and have been using INDIRECT in the DSUM.

I read through the examples here: [url]

Basically they recommended DSUM as the most efficient.

I can get the DSUM working, but it needs the workbook to be open before it can evaluate the expression and therefore I get an error when I select to update values upon opening the workbook.

So in summary I wondering if anyone can show me how to write a SUMIF formula based on the above criteria.

It's just a simple percentage calculator for my purposes and works fine as is. However, I want to make it dynamic whereby from a user input the length of the array will increase or decrease, e.g. G9-G11 will become G9-G12 if there are four rows occupied with data. For all my other SUMming equations I have solved this and even came up with what I think is a perfectly valid solution for this one. The one problem is that it doesn't work when combined into a single equation.

My solution for the upper part of the fraction is this:

The formula is =SUMPRODUCT((Group="A")*(Project_Description="Long Term")*(Profile="B")*(INDIRECT(B9)="x"))

B9 through M9 have header text Jan_2012, Feb_2012...Dec_2012. Basically my aim is to get the above formula working before I drag it across so that the named ranges get picked up automatically from the headers.

Jan_2012 thru Dec_2012 are dynamic named ranges using INDEX (and not OFFSET as someone mentioned OFFSET is a volatile function).

The above SUMPRODUCT formula is giving me a #REF! error for the (INDIRECT(B9)="x") part. I know that because when I replace it with (Jan_2012="x") it works fine.

I realized while writing this that it may be because the named range in Jan_2012 is not the same size as that of other arrays. [but it is the same size - I've re-confirmed just now]

in colum A i have a list of dates, in colum B i have a list of amounts. what i need to get is the sum of the amounts where the dates in colum A are between the dates in cells C1 & D1. Tries sum producst but all I get is the total sum of colum B irrelevant of the date!

I have 4 columns, A B C and D. They are a mix of formats.

A= Name (text) B= Date C= Code (text) D= Number

I need a formula that gives me the total from column D, provided conditions for columns A, B and C are met. The date condition is month only, so I'm using MONTH(1) for January etc.

I can find a formula if there are only three columns total (using SUMPRODUCT), but not 4.

I have a list of names and corresponding costs charged for each entry. The names appear multiple times for multiple costs charged, but contain any combination of characters after their name.

I am looking to get the sum of all entries for each name. I have tried the following formulae, but it does not return any information:

=SUMIF('Jan line items'!E:E,(CONTAINS:A:A),'Jan line items'!F:F)

I'm trying to do here is if a layaway has been paid off then there will be a tax amount in column C. IF there is tax in column C and column A has the word layaway (or the word way) in it then I need to find out how much the total of the layaway $ amount was. Meaning, to figure out how much the tax is for.

For example: If the text in Column A contains the word way AND column C contains a $ amount then return the amount that the tax would be for. Of course this would be an accumulated amount for all of column C. So, if Layaway is in column A and $3.13 amount is in column C then it will return $50.00 as the original selling price. Tax here is .0625 %.

I have a daily tracking sheet. I want (off to the right) to be able to enter start/end dates and have it sum the total grossage for JUST those dates alone. Which function do I use?

THis works with or without the 2nd condtion, but I thouht the "greater than 0" bit would eliminate the inclusion of 0's; however, the same #DIV/0 error occurs with or w/out that ">0" condtion as the 1st OR 2nd argument.

I speculated that b/c the final argument was dividing each paid of cells in either range instead of a typical sum, this caused the divisor error.

I am using the SUMIF formula to sum all the cells that meet a certain criteria and at the moment, this works fine. Now I want to extend the criteria to 2(3 later) conditions. I've read that the SUMIF function only handles 1 criteria. Is this correct? If so should I use SUMPRODUCT or DSUM? I eventually will have to check about 2000 cells in a workbook. Sample work book attached: where I need to total the price of all the items that are shoes and are red in colour. A pivot table beckons in the future, but for now I need this in a workbook format.

Im Trying to use a formula of countif or sumproduct

so the formula will read the range of cells from A2:A30 to see if the word Hydro is in any of those cells, then if the date range from Cell B2:B30 is from range =>Dec-01-2007 to =<Dec-31-2007, then it will count 1.

[Code] ........

But this formula doest count.

I've tried using a multiple if count if with arrays and sumproduct. I really want it to count the ammount of time the work hydro is used during the month on december .
