i am using this formula with military ranks as the primary value to look up. i know i am doing it correctly because it works with looking up values in another excel workbook when the rank is CPT, PFC, PV2, SPC, SGT, SSG, etc... but it does not work for any rank that is abbreviated with a number as the first character, such as 1LT, 2LT, or 1SG. instead i get a #N/A, which is false. i have looked all over the internet to include this website but cannot find an answer.
I have a list of data where some of the cell values are the same. I want to rank them uniquely but when I use the RANK function the cell values that are the same are given the equivalent rank. Is there any way of assigning the equivalent values a sequential ranking that is unique?
So in this example rather than producing the rank as this:
I am building a dashboard for a project, which is going to be on a separate worksheet for easy printing and providing only needed data from my database. I have attached a small example in the format I will actually be using as I think the formula is going to be specific to my dashboard.
Attached file, you should see a column "Rank" highlighted orange, with certain rows being numbered. My objective is to display certain data from that particular row, and display it (scroll to the right to see the dashboard display layout) on the dashboard. I think my main goal is to have the specified data displayed in ranked order 1-10 from the top down, and I don't know where to start with that....the other possiblity is to just have the specified data display in ascending order of the zip codes as long as something other than <blank> is in the "Rank" field.
The situation requires some context. I have a spreadsheet that is pulling data in from another location. It is simply a 'Location!A1' link - the source data updates daily as it is a Business Objects report that I dump out and I want to then bring that info into another spreadsheet.
My challenge is attempting to order the data as it comes in without having to manually sort the Business Objects report everyday. Because the link to the BO report is simply a cell look up, I have to take the data as it comes.
I've tried the rank formula according to a price (as this is what it needs to be ranked by) but because some products are the same price as each other, it simply doubles up (so if there's two products at $10, it ranks them both the same e.g. 4). Once I get the right rank, I can then vlookup the right order in a way I can then reference properly. EXAMPLE 180814.xlsx
I'm creating a Speech and Debate calculater that presents winners names by place according to their score. If you look at Tab HSSE Results it will read the inputed information from HS Speech English. I want the names of the students to appear in the correct ranking order in the respected grade rankings chart. I currently have a countif formula which reads the grade, but I think I need to link that with an index formula which I'm having problems with.
I have a workbook which scores tender's, the calculations behind the front sheet work fine, I would now like to show where the tender ranks against a set of criteria. I have attached a sample and typed into the cell D12 what I am trying to with this list of criteria below starting in cell C15.
I have a column of numbers formatted as general. The data represents military time. When I try to change the format to time, the output is 0:00. How do I convert the existing data to time data IN THE SAME cell the existing data is already in? Is this possible? I have 26,000 lines of data I have to apply this to.
I have four columns. In the first one I want to keep my START time (in format of military time), in the second column I have STOP time, in the THIRD column I have TIME USED in other words it is a DIFFERENCE between STOP and START and I used this formula for that: =B2-A2 and it works.
Now in the FOURTH column I wish to have the TOTAL TIME added from the THIRD column and this where the problems starts. I used this formula =SUM(C2:C500) and doesn't work correctly.
I am parsing a cell that contains the date and time; "2013-05-20 13:20:39" and it reads this way in the active cell. In the formula bar it reads; "2013-05-20 1:20:39 PM" and looks that same way when I use text to columns. What do I do to keep the time in military time (i.e. the way it appears in the cell) when I parse the cell contents?
In A1, I've got a time for an event expressed in military time without colons, like 1130.
In B1, I've got two more times expressed the same way, like 1230-1300. These are the time the event was actually began and ended.
I've separated these two times into four different columns, the first two (C1 and D1) containing the raw numbers 1230 and 1330, and the second two (E1 and F1) containing those numbers formatted as times (12:30 and 13:00) via the TEXT function =TEXT(C1,"00:00")
Getting the difference between these two times (expressed in minutes) is not difficult. What is proving to be difficult (however simple it seems) is checking to see if C1 (time event began) is within an hour of A1 (time event was scheduled.) I was able to get this to work with times not involving 0000 or having, say, 0130 as an event time and 2300 as the time the event was started, but those two cases (switching 0000 to 2400, and moving between "days") is causing a hangup. Checking if A1
B. start time C. end time D. Total time (military time) Example: 2300 - 0300 = 4 hrs worked. =IF(C19-B19>0,C19-B19,1+C19-B19)
I have a row for every date the hors is worked.
I cant seem to get the total hours to calculate correctly at the bottom of column D for a total hours worked in a particular pay period. It calculates a total up to 24hrs then reverts to zero. I have tried [h]:mm =SUM(XX:XX) and just about everything else I can think of and cant get it to calculate a correct total over 24 hrs.
I work for a freight company and have been trying to create a macro for a spreadsheet that I have to create every single day. I pull a report from a program called the AS400 and it sends me an excel spreadsheet with information about certain shipments such as close time and arrive time (which are in military time such as 16:00) along with driver names.
Anyways what I need to accomplish is to highlight the entire rows font in red if the driver arrived an hour or more past there close time. When I get the spreadsheet the military times are not showing in the HH:MM format under format cells. So I select the HH:MM format and try to do a formula such as Arrive time cell (M1) - close time cell (L1) to get the time difference it shows as #VALUE!. I've tried to convert it to different time formats and nothing works. The values just stay the same and will not allow me to do calculations with them.
At first I thought this was because the program was sending those values as text. I tried to use the date>text to columns>finish button on the columns but did not work. I've tried to remove the":" then use the HH:MM cell format but still wont work. I've even tried a time value formula to try to convert the values such as =TIMEVALUE(LEFT(A1,2)&”:”&RIGHT(A1,2)).
But nothing works it will not allow me to add or subtract from the time values no matter what I do. I am running excel 2010 on Windows XP the english version.
if someone called me at 4:55pm and ended the call at 5:10pm, the whole call lasted 15 minutes. So, I want to show on excel that the call lasted 5 minutes in the 16th hour of the day (4:55pm) and 10 minutes in the 17th hour of the day (5:10pm), for a total of 15 minutes.
I am trying to find a way to have excel recognize text data input as date/time.
Where 02 Is the Date, 2020 is the time (military) Z is Zulu/GMT, MAR is Month and 14 is Year. I believe excel recognizes
But I have a spreadsheet (on a confidential system) with thousands of entries that I need to convert. Also, the people I have working for me are not remotely. I reject the idea of entering data that way.
I am also trying to keep the display the same format: ddhhmm"Z" MMM yy
Adm Date Adm Time Trans Date Trans Time 1/16/2014 937 1/16/2014 1045 1/1/2014 121 1/1/2014 121 1/14/2014 800 1/11/2014 735 1/30/2014 100 1/30/2014 205 1/13/2014 800 1/12/2014 1202
I would like to calculate the difference (# hours spanned from the dates shown). Unfortunately when we transfer the data the COLON is dropped from MILITARY TIME so I am having problems in the calculation. This is also made more difficult as some of the calculates span over two dates.
I have a program that exports the date as 20120621 (4 digit year, 2 digit month, 2 digit day). I have tried =datevalue(cell) but it returns #value!. I have tried =today()-(cell) and it also returns #value!. Is there a formula or something I can do to covert this field to a date?
I need a simple formula to convert standard time (1:05pm) into military time (13:08).
I've read through several posts, but all I've found is reformatting or time subtraction type information. The reformating works to an extent, it gives me the hours in military but the minutes stay standard.
Basicly, all I need is:
Cell A1 = 1:05 p Cell B1 = formula that shows/converts 1:05 p as 13:08
I have a Vlookup which I want to modify so that it can become dynamic as the table array part of the vlookup will change.
So the basic vlookup is as follows: =VLOOKUP($R$3,ATTRIBUTION_FACTSET!$M$60:$P$73,2,0) but the data I am looking for wont always be in the range M60:P73.
So I tried to make it dynamic by doing the following: =VLOOKUP($R$3,INDIRECT("ATTRIBUTION_FACTSET"&"!M"&U1&":P"&V1),2,FALSE) The idea being that U1 and V1 would be numbers that can change so in this case U1 would equal 60 and V1 would equal 73
This vlookup is giving me #N/A and no matter how I modify it I cannot get it to work.
I have a sheet using VLookup to find EMail and Web addresses. I can get the address to show up but not as an active URL address. Is it possible to have the address "active" so I can click on it and activate the EMail or Web Site?
