Subtract Positive And Negative Numbers

Sep 14, 2009

IF formula.

I am trying to subtract 2 numbers, and they are 4 different combinations of positive and negative numbers.

I wrote the formula as
=IF(A5*B5>0,IF(AND(A5*B54,458 2,367 (322)FALSE(1,277)1,751 FALSE


Reference Cell & Add Amount If Positive & Subtract Amount If Negative

Jun 5, 2008

Im trying to set up an active running inventory sheet where: (A)the progressive daily sheet cells reference back to the corresponding master sheet cells fluctuating the master values, (B) the same progressive daily sheet cells reference back to a cummulative totals-cell based on whether I added or subtracted inventory. I want to make a copy of the blank "sheet 2" with all of the formulas and move it to the end of the workbook each day and enter new values which will reference back to the master sheet so that I can click on a date sheet and see an individual day's values or click on the master sheet to see the fluctuating inventory on-hand and the cummulative +/- totals of all days combined. I've got a couple hundred individual cells to reference. I've tried and tried but I can't make it work. Heres what I need to do:

I need to reference individual cells from "sheet 2,3,etc" back to a corresponding cell in a master sheet. But I need the values in each cell in "sheet 2,3,ETC" to increase or decrease the corresponding cell values in the master sheet. For example: If the value in the master sheet B5 is 200. Then in sheet 2, I enter +50 in B5, I need the master sheet cell B5 to increase by 50 to 250. I also need a way to decrease the cell value in the master sheet B5 if I enter a negative value -50 in sheet 2 B5. I also want to know if I can reference the same cell values entered in "sheet 2,3,etc cell B5" back to totals columns C5 for adding inventory or D5 for subtracting inventory in the master sheet where the master totals columns would reflect cummulative totals added or subtracted. For example: if the value in sheet 2 B5 is +50, then the value in Master sheet C5 would add 50 to a progressive total. But if the value in sheet 2 B5 is -50 then the value in master sheet D5 would add -50 to a progressive total.

Positive And Negative Changes Any 2 Numbers

Feb 4, 2012

I would like to see that I am continually saving on a per-day basis (as well as overtime). I allowance myself an allowance each day, but some days, I need to spend more money than that. The best solution I have to is keep a running total for myself, so that each day is affected by the preceding days. Therefore, if I spend too much, I now have a small defecit that needs to be corrected. This method keep me on track as far as saving and spending.

Question (and I copied the actual data from my spreadsheet):

Without having to manual enter the final calculations (because this is just a simple part of an overall larger, more complex spreadsheet), can I generate the values in my Value Change row, based on the information from my Running Total row?

For example, Day 1 to Day 2, I was able to incease my running total from 233 to 354 (meaning that I had saved +121 that day). Of course, this is an easy subtraction problem (Day 2 - Day 1 = Value Change). From Day 2 to Day 3, I spent way too much. The running total fell to -1198, meaning that I spent 1552 too much (that day's value change is -1552). Again, this an easy subtraction (Day 3 - Day 2 = Value Change, just like the first example). From Day 3 to Day 4, I was able to reduce my running total -1063, meaning that I was able to save 135 that day. This is my problem. Day 4 - Day 3 does not equal the value change of + 135. To get this value, the preceding formula now has to change to ABS(Day 3) - ABS(Day 4).

This is the issue. I need a formula that can work normally when the numbers are postive or when the second value is larger (in terms of absolute value). On the other hand, it needs to recognize the special cases like Day 3 - Day 4. Is this some form of a conditional function?

Running Total 233354-1198-1063-878-658-933-807-657
Percentage Change51.93%-438.42%11.27%17.40%25.06%-41.79%13.50%18.59%
Value Change121-1552135185220-275126150

Convert Positive Numbers To Negative

Jan 8, 2008

I have created a Pivot table from a source data file that includes a document status column ('Type I Or C') (I for Invoice & C for Credit) and an Invoice / Credit value column (Invoiced Price). However the values for both invoices and credits are positive so when summed distort the total values.

I am attempting to create an additional column within the Pivot table to convert the credit note values to negative by inserting a calculated field under the formula tab, i.e.

=IF('Type I Or C'="C",-'Invoiced Price','Invoiced Price')

The above formula works fine in a standard worksheet but it is not reckonsing the "C" within the pivot table. If I manually change the value to numeric (i.e. 1 for Invoices and 2 for credits) it works fine, i.e =IF('Type I Or C'="2",-'Invoiced Price','Invoiced Price')

so it appears to be an alpha issue?

I am looking for a formula to do the following:

I want all numbers that are negative to display the word "original" and all positive to display" new." How do I do that? Also, I want the opposite to work as well-- if Tab 1 has a positive number, I want all positive numbers in Tab 2 to display "original."

Formula To Pick Up Negative And Or Positive Numbers?

Jul 17, 2013

I have the following formula
=IF(VLOOKUP(F89,'2013 susp 2714035 Reissues'!F:F,1,FALSE)=F89,"yes",FALSE)

That is supposed to look at the tab 2714035 Reissues and find the same dollar amount. The issue Iam having is the dollar amount can be a negative or a positive amount but the formula is only picking up the number if it matches exactly negative to negative or positive to positive. formula to pick up the matching number if its a negative or a positive.

Pass Or Fail Using Both Positive And Negative Numbers Against Tolerance

Aug 20, 2012

It's a worksheet for testing milk tanks. The issue is as follows:

Column F = Chart Error/This can be either a positive or negative whole number
Column G = Tolerance/This is always a whole positive number

Problem is I want Column H = Status to say "Pass" or "Fail" based on meeting the Column G number. But it's only the number itself (not whether it's Positive or Negative) that matters in determining the P/F status.


Column F= -20
Column G= 15
Column H= Fails


F= 20
G= 15
H= Fails

The formulas I've been coming up with will show one or the other as Failing but not both + or - numbers if they fail to meet the G Column tolerance number.

Subtract Negative Numbers Within Pivot Table Data Field

Jul 6, 2009

Ive attached a spreadsheet showing what im trying to achieve. basically i have a scheduling objective, in which only a few slots (AA, BB, CC) are available. so the starting availability is fixed. for this example assume the starting values are 6,7, and 8 respectively. as 'bookings' are entered, im using the value of -1 against A, B, or C respectively, to indicate that AA, BB, or CC should be decreased by 1 unit of availability.

im trying to incorporate the subtraction within a pivot table. as you can see i am way off. the hypothetical formula logic that im trying to implement within the PivotTable would look something like this:

for A,B or C, sum all (-1) values for each instance of Date and Stage... this will give total bookings

add this total value to the starting values of AA, BB, CC respectively to get the new availability
