I have been looking everywhere for this. In SPSS, it is very easy to recode data, but how do you do this in Excel? For example, researchers often "reverse" their questions on surveys with Likert scales to eliminate respondent errors. In those questions, you want 1=5, 2=4, 3=3, 4=2, 5=1. Is there a plug-in or some other formula that is out there?

I want to manipulate team statistics and having a bit of trouble trying to figure out how to do it. I am relatively new to excel and am using Excel 2007.

I have attached the excel file for your reference (the same file).

What I need to do is first find out the team number using the table on first sheet named "Teams". User will enter team name on call B4 of sheet "Team entry" then in cell C4 there should be a formula to find the team number (is beside name on sheet "Teams) and displays it (on C4). Then on cell D4 of the same sheet "Team entry" there should be a formula that displays cell A1 (shows a statistic for that team) of the team sheet. Each team has its own stat sheet named by its team number (easier for me to keep track). So basically D4 should show cell A1 of the sheet that shows stats of the team entered. In addition cell E4 of "Team entry" should display stat2 (of the sheet "stat2")for the team entered.

how to recode a variable. Suppose I have a variable for Ethnicity and this is a text variable, and I would like to get a numeric variable out of it. I tried to use IF but it works only for one condition or for nested conditions, which is not my case. What I would need is something like= IF(B2=Black,1, IF B2=White, 2, IF and so on)

Is there a way to do this without writing a code in VBA?

I am improving an old spreadsheet that contains a tab for inputting the following data, all using data validation:

date employee (who did the work) team (for whom work was done) department (for whom work was done) type (of work done) Project (which property worked on) new/revision (was this a new project or revision of old) time (spent working on this)

I have a sheet with a drop down in which you can sort by employee and the associated chart and graphs adjust the information accordingly.

I need to create a chart and graph in which I can track the trailing month as well as year to date. Ideally, I would like to sort by the following:

- This month (i.e., the 1st of the month to present) - previous month (etc., be able to select all previous months for which data was entered, i.e. Jan., Feb. March. etc.) - Year to date

I know there is a way to do this - I thought maybe it would be through some formula incorporating =today() and subtracting back to what you need using numeric dates?

I would like to have a macro to automatically generate a statistics table (on the "statistics" tab) with the 5 following fields: Fragment names / # samples / # of failed samples / % of success / # of variations in the fragment (SNP). At the bottom of this table, I would like to have a cell with the average % of success for all fragments. The data to generate these statistics are on the "gene name" tab (please note that this name will change every time I will work on a new gene). To make things easier, I think the macro should be run from this tab.

1. The Fragment names are displayed in row #5. I use one column per variation per fragment. If one fragment has 3 variations, there will be three columns and I will merge together the fragment name cells. The fact that some cells are merged can be a problem when copy-paste to the stats table (as I would like to get rid of the merging).

2. # of samples corresponds to the number of cells in blue in column A. The number of samples can change from one report to another but is always constant in the same report.

3. # of failed sequences. In the table, I type "Failed Sequence" (if the analysis has failed) and "Missing Sequence" (if the analysis has not been done). When a sample is failed or missing, it is for the who fragment, no matter how many variation there is in the fragment, so I usually merge the cells of all variations for this failed sample.

4. % of success: this is quite easy #sample/#of failed+missing sequence for this fragment

5. # of variation is equal to the number of variations for this fragment (can be 0, 1, 2, etc.). When there is no variation in a fragment, I put '-- in all cells of the corresponding fragment on the "gene name" tab. Fragment 3 on my file is an example of 0 variation.

Been searching the archives but not finding my answers. I downloaded historical lottery numbers and want to run statistics on them- just no clue where to start. I guess the 1st and most important thing is to figure out which #s have come up most often out of all of them. I assume it's some sort of COUNT or LOOKUP code- but not sure. I have the #s arranged in a sheet like so ...

On Sheet1 I have 2 cells one has the date 1-mar-09 and the other has 7-mar-09. I need to find this range on Sheet2 which has all the dates for the year in ColumnA and then total the amounts found in Sheet2!ColumnB for the specified date range. Is this possible without VB?

I'm trying to pull some statistics from a workbook I've been sent and am having some trouble working out how to achieve this.

I have a small interface that allows the user to choose a possible answer (drop-down menu) from a questionnaire (Yes, No, Maybe)(cell: C6). On the interface the user also picks the question they wish to see the stats for (cell: C5)

The data I have been sent has been set up with the questions along in row A, and the answers below in each column (the answers run across row A from column G - AH).

So, what I'm basically after is a formula that first looks up the question specified in C5 (I've used HLOOKUP to pull some other data), and then counts how many times the Yes, No or Maybe answers appears in the column where the question data is held.

I have two rows in a sheet with random numbers (1 till 90).

Those numbers in those two rows I change them every 5 minutes with new one still from 1 to 90 I need a "way", in one side of my sheet (lets say in column B) to count how many times a number was repeated after finish my work (example after 2 hour's)

I have a table of contents page. The TOC is updated each time some one opens the sheet (this is a must have based on the requirements). I'm trying to include some statistics next to each item in the TOC. These statistics are on each worksheet and just need to be copied to the TOC. Now my problem.

The worksheets are NOT keep in alphabetical order, so After the TOC is created a sort is done to put the TOC links in alphabetical order. After the order is set, I need a formula that will read the worksheet name from a cell on the TOC (which is really a hyper link to a worksheet).

I have this already: ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=Address!R[-2]C[-2]"

If "=Address!" (Where address is the name of one of the sheets) could be replaced with a cell reference that (I think) would do the trick.

My TOC is a MACRO not a cell formula so if this can not be done with a cell formula but can be done through VBA that would be fine.

I have running total of bowling scores current & going back from when I first started.

What I’m trying to archive is a formula that will count the most recent 96 scores and still allow me to add new scores each week in keeping the current running total of 96 games.

The statistics are listed from A4:C215 that may have 1 or 2 scores not listed. (missed games)

Each week new statistics will be added in cell A4:C4 anywhere’s of 1-3 games.

Back to test you with a few problems as I work through a project I'm carrying out, based on past results data of the English Premier League.

I have some of the solutions/formulas I require already, but there are still some gaps to be filled in!

***

the spreadsheet is set out as follows:

Key Columns / Sub-Title (Remarks)

B Date (the date a match was played - the s.sheet is sorted by this column, A>Z) C Home Team D Away Team E Home team goals scored F Away team goals scored I-M Indicates via U or O whether the match contained under or over 0.5,1.5,2.5,3.5,4.5 goals N Points obtained for Home team (i.e. 3 for a win, 1 for a draw, and 0 for a loss) O Points obtained for Away team (i.e. 3 for a win, 1 for a draw, and 0 for a loss)

There are 381 rows in total for each worksheet (season) - 1 for the titles, and 2-381 for each match played in the season...................

I try to predict some macro economic statistics but any attempt till now didn't make sense. the attached file. Note: when i used the FORECAST function the predicted values showed an unlogical drop while there seems to be a positive trend.

I am creating a workbook to manage golfer scores, teams, winnings, handicap, ect. I am having trouble with the statistics sheet. I Need A Sub To:

1. Column "B" , take the average of the lowest 5 numbers in columns "AB" though "AU"

2. Column "C" , take the average of the lowest 10 numbers in columns "G" through "Z" divided by 0.96

3. Column "D" , take the average of the lowest 10 numbers in columns "AW" through "BP"

this needs to happen for each row where there is a name. (names added daily)

I have included a similar sheet as the one i am working with along with some command buttons typically not included. Should show some of the problems I am having.

i need to do the following on the attached spreadsheet using a macro: SHEET 1. This is an example of the original data i will be working with i need

1) You will notice that the Min and Max columns are not all together, i need these to all be together. I then only want the Race course, race time, date and type, Min, Max and ratings.

2) I then want the following formula added to Column F, Max minus Min. In column G i would like the following formula Rating minus Min. And finally in Column H Rating minus Max.

3) I would the like to Highlight in Yellow the horse with the highest possible number. I want this done for each column (F,G,H) in each race i would like all Horses that dont have a yellow cell in any of the Columns (F,G,H) to be deleted, leaving me with just the highlighted horses. An example of the required final result is contained in Sheet 2 of the attached spreadsheet.

I have a scenario where by Column A is date incident opened and Colum B is date incident closed.

And Column C shows the days between them. I got this and its fine. However, how do i make a table or in any how define it as if the number is 1 - 3 days then it should be A

1-3 days = A 4-6 days = B 7-8 days = C 9 days onwards = D

This is because i need to make a chart and graph of the turn around time and the best is to define into a character alphabet so the chart will show the statistics of how many A, B, C and D But how do i do that.

I am tracking baseball batting statistics. The first column in each row is the player's name and the next column is the date. Several columns of statistics follow. I enter the batting stats game by game. I know I can use the SUBTOTAL function combined with AutoFilter to view each player's statistics individually totalled, but what I'd like is to see that subtotal line permanently displayed for each player.

I am trying to create and calculate player statistics using Vlookup in Excel. This is what I am trying to do:

BCD 5PlayerGoalsAssists 6Jordan Eberle00=VLOOKUP(TEXT(B6,"@"),B13:G14,4) used in C6 7James Neal 00=VLOOKUP(B7,B13:G14,4) used in C7

cell format is "general" in B6 thru B14

Lookup TableCol ECol FCol G Player NameTeamGPGAPts 13James NealPITT4325 14Jordan EberleEDM1404

Imported Data from Yahoo Sports and have sorted in ascending order a-b-c-d

(pasted as text and than changed to General in Excel formatting)

I have tried using 2 different vlookup formulas structures, but no success. I have tried using numeric reference (i.e using numeric 1 in for both in the lookup table and the original cell) and that works.

I am auto-importing statistics from the web via web query. This information imported has a number in the form of a decimal stated as either x.1, or x.2. x.1 represents x-1/3 (one-third) and x.2 represents x-2/3 (two-thirds). I need to use these numbers in a calculation after importing them, but using x.1 or x.2 obviously does not give me accurate results as the numbers should actually be x.3333333 and x.6666666 respectively. What is the easiest way to convert the imported numbers to their actual decimals?...

I have a column line chart to which I add data monthly and then have to manually update the "source data" to reflect the added data on chart. This is a rolling graph, which mean that I have to remove data for one month(from last year) and then include the new month's data. Is there any way on automating this process...like a macro or something, so once I add the data excel automatically removes one month of old data and make changes to include fresh data. Eg Currently chart is based on data from A2:F2 and I add new data to cell G2. I need something which automatically update the source data to cell B2:G2.

I have one source spreadsheet, where are columns NAME, DATE. I read these data by ADO to other spreadsheet, where I can change/delete data and then run macro for update data in source spreadsheet. The problem: In source spreadsheet is column "NAME" and column "DATE", with values e.g. "Joseph"; 1.1.1980. I read this data to other spreadsheet, then I delete in it value 1.1.1980. When I run macro Update, it messages error.

Sub UpdateItem ... .Fields.Item(1).value = activecell 'activecell value = "Joseph" If Not isempty(activecell.offset(0,1)) Then .Fields.Item(2).value = activecell.offset(0,1).value Else .Fields.Item(2).value = "" 'I tried Empty and 0 too but when I read data again then, it displays 0.1.1900, nothing works End If ... End Sub

It seems that in source spreadsheet has data in column "Date" format Date and when I try to update data in format String ("") in source spreadsheet by Update macro, it messages error. When I used

.Fields.Item(2).Value = Empty ' or .Fields.Item(2).Value = 0

after rereading data it displays 0.1.1900 What I want to get is that if the cell with date (in other spreadsheet) is empty, the cell in column Date in source spreadsheet after updating will be blank (contains no values).

I am trying to create a user form that will allow the user to type int values in boxes. Then when the user clicks the submit button the code needs to add the values from each user input box to the existing values in specific cells accross multiple worksheets. Then the form needs to be cleared after the cell values are updated. I can create the form it is the code on the submit button i am lost on. Also it is important that some boxes may be left blank.

If you click the Grey "Qty Form" button on sheet1 the form will open. User data numbers can be entered in the blank boxes. When the submit button is pressed the form needs to add the user entered numbers to the numbers in the corresponding cells in sheet 1 and sheet 2. How to code the submit button to do this properly. Also after the data on the spreadsheet is updated the form needs to be cleared and start the cursor back in the Item 1 box on the form.

- I have total of 13 sheets in a workbook - 12 sheets represent 12 months with data; 13th sheet is single sheet in which i would like to get complete overview of 12 months

- each of 12 sheets has actually sales results for multiple products with following data: internal code, manufacturer part number, name, and qty sold in that month

- situation is that some products have been phased out during the year and some were introduced so each sheet is slightly different in terms of in which row certain product is located

What i would like to achive is to make 13th sheet (whole year overview) do the following: - there is a list of all the products in it, each product has unique internal code - this code (from each line) should be used to find that code in each monthly sheet, then find its monthly sales value (copy it) and paste it in sheet 13 in cell that represents this product and particular month.

In other words i would like to see for each product what was monthly sales throughout this year, but avoid manually filling in qty for each product per month.

I have attached a sheet that has part of a data list, sheet called (Full Data) what i am trying to do is seperate the data into event locations into individual sheets.

The data ref will be column F which is the different event locations.

I thought the best way to try and do this was to create an if/ match formula using the sheet tab names as the if match, with the event locations in column F.

I have added two sheet tabs so you can see that i require the data for (Ain) to be put into the Ain sheet.

The data list in Full Data sheet will be continuously updated so i will need the range to be around 10,000 entries.

I am attempting to create a macro to generate emails based on data in a sheet. The goal is to run the Macro, and have it generate emails to send to contractors letting them know what they are going to be paid. For instance:

Name in Column J Email in Column L Memo in Column N Balance in Column T Due Date in Column P Week Ending Date in Column H

Now what I would like to happen, is to tie a macro into a button that will create the email as follows:

To Field: Email address from Column L Subject: "Company Payment Remittance Payment Date *Date from Column P*" Body: Hello *Name from Column J*, For *WE Date in Column H* you will be paid *Balance from Column T* for the time worked of *Memo in Column N*

Now the tricky part is that I want the email to contain all line items for each email address. So instead of sending one email per line, have the macro automatically put all of the information that needs to be sent to one email address into the message. I don't know if that is possible, but it sure would make my life easier if it was.

I have attached a sample workbook of the data that will be used
