Working With Percentages Over Many Cells
I have 100's of cells with various formulas similar to this: =U7*9.57. U7 Being the cell with the number of hours worked and 9.57 being the hourly rate. Fairly simple so far. Now there has been a 5% pay rise so unless i get another formula to add 5% on to all these cells i will have to manualy change each hourly pay to the correct value, something i dont want to do. So my question is can i do something like =U7*9.57 then another formula to add 5% on to the 9.57, then i can copy the formula down all the other cells?????

Decimals To Percentages
I am trying to combine to cells containing percentages, however when I do the percentages turn into decimals. I have tried using the text funtion, but that just returns the full number 1, no decimals or percentages.

Applying Percentages
I have a table of data with names across the top and number of weeks down the left. The table lists amounts of money those names earned during the respective weeks. It looks something like this: Mike Dan Bill Carl 400 500 600 700 800 900 1000 800 700 600 500 400 In a seperate worksheet within the same workbook, I have 3 columns of data. The first column is a name. The second column is a criteria. In the third column, I am trying to look up the value of 8 specified weeks of earnings of the name I put in column 1 and multiply those earnings by a percentage based on the criteria in column 2. Then sum the products. I have a table of the 8 percentages I am trying to apply. There are 7 different percentage applications. So if I am looking up Mike's earnings during those 8 specified weeks and the criteria in column 2 is "B", then I want to apply the appropriate column of percentages to those 8 looked up earnings, Multply them and then Add them. Up until now, I have been trying to use some hybrid of HLOOKUP, SUMPRODUCT, and IF.

Remove The Percentages
I have data that I import from another source into excel and it pulls over like this 3866.00% 435.00% 125.00% 1254.00% I want to remove the % since these aren't actually percentages, the report we pull from has them listed incorrectly and cannot be changed since it is software driven, not excel driven. The problem is simply remove the % changes the number to 38.66 instead of leaving it at 3866.

Average Percentages ...
I have a row of formulas that calculates information into a percentage. As you input info, a percentage is created in the cell. Those cells that do not yet have information entered still show " DIV/0" or something like that. I need a formula that will average all the percentages, but the problem is, it's trying to also average the formulas with the percentages, so I currently get an error.

Formula  Percentages
Am trying to do a formula to work out a percentage of one figure from another, cannot for the life of me think it through properly! So in Cell J73 I have the net income and in cells J75 +J77 I have the total outgoings. I want a formula that works out the percentage outgoings, so if someone is earning £100 and they have £20 outgoings, that is 20% of their earnings.

Calculating Percentages ...
I'm sure this will be an easy calculation for most of you........... If I have two numbers, ie. 390 and 217, how can I calculate the difference between the two figures as a percentage? (These two figures represent sales in two months and I need to know the difference in percentage terms).

Calculating Percentages In XL 03
I work at a library and have been asked for help by the Asst. Director. The problem is, I have next to no Excel experience, just what I've been reading in the Help files and Online. We are using Excel 2003 and running XP. Here is his predicament: he has an excel document that lists the books we have ordered from a publisher. Column I has the MSRP for the book and Column J has the discounted price for the book. We are trying to get Column L to show the percentage of the discount that we received. This is what i've come up with: example for line 255 typed in as formula for L: =17.95/14.98 It comes out correct when I type in the formula as I show above, but when I try typing in the formula (as it should look:=1J255/I255) , i get an error message: #VALUE! ...

Annualised Percentages
I am monitoring the balance in my Allocated Pension fund, via the WWW. In particular, I am recording the profits (disregarding costs, outflows, etc.) as ANNUALISED PERCENTAGES (a new line, for each week). My formula is: =(accumulated profits/principal)*(365/elapsed days) Questions: Will my formula remain valid, when “elapsed days” exceed 365? If not, is there a FUNCTION that can handle my problem. And What would the function’s ARGUMENTS be?

Pivot Table  Percentages
I am trying despeartely to finish this out. Here is the deal. I created a pivot table (see attached). The issue is that I need the numbers in the red boxes to be a percentage of the total number below  so the 2 should be a percentage of the 9 (22%) and the 3 should be 100% and the 7 should be 78%. I cannot seem to get this to work. Also, there are multiple rescue groups that need this and each needs to be the % of its own total number of animals.

How To Assign Monetary Value To Percentages?
I'm brand new to this forum, so please forgive me in advance. I am hoping someone might be able to point me in the right direction. I got a request from my boss and it's something I've never done in Excel and far more advanced than anything I've tried to do. In my spreadsheet, Columns BBD are server names, and Rows 213 are program names. Inside the corresponding cells all have to display as percentages, and we are trying to display what percentage of each server is being used by each program. In Row 14, each column must total to be 100%. That part is easy, I already have that all setup. However, the next step requires that each server is assigned a monetary value  one of two monetary values for Virtual or Physical server. Then, somehow I need Excel to calculate the monetary value for each percentage. For example: if Column B is Virtual, and Row 14 totals up to equal 100%, it also equals $1,000. Say Cell B4 is equal to 50% and B5 is equal to 50%, each cell is also equal to $500. Easy enough in theory, but how should I execute this so that these cells stay in % format, but Column BE titled "Total Cost" displays the monetary value for each Program (row)? I'm pretty sure there will be some kind of formula so I guess that's what I'm asking... how to calculate it? I'll attach a screen shot to show you the gist of how it looks so far ...

Macros That Were Working In Excel 2003 Are Not Working In 2007
I have a workbook in excel 2003 which I had been running the following macros (listed below). We recently upgraded to Excel 07, and neither are working. When I try to run them, the "debug" option highlights the following line in the sort macro "Range("A2:z" & lastcell).Sort key1:=.Columns(1)". This is driving me crazy, as the macros worked perfectly under the older version of Microsoft. Is there an issue with crossfunctionality between '03 and '07'.

Data, Performing Functions, And Percentages?
I have a very large grid of data, about 400Rx200C, which contains a lot of blank fields. All of this data is currently in values from 0100 representing percentages, but not formatted as such. I need to make all of these values into Excel Percentages so naturally used Paste Special and Divide from a field with the value 100 in it and then simply format the cells as %. However, this fills in all of the original empty cells with a 0.000% which I do not want, I need them to stay blank. And some of the cells that do have values also have 0.000% so I cannot just delete all of these values with a VBA script. I had been hoping the Skip Blanks option would do this, but it does not unfortunately.

IF Statements, Percentages And Negative Values
I've hit a wall for the first time in my excel using career, I’ve searched the net high and low, asked the guys in my IT department and am so far stumped for a solution. The problem is thus: I have 3 columns, A, B and C. Column A and B contain two numbers. Column A is "telephone calls offered" Column B is "Telephone calls Answered". Column C is a calculation of the percentage of calls NOT answered. The formula I am using for this is =(A1B1)/A1*1 This gives me a % as an answer. Rows 1 to 66 are different time periods through out the day. The problem is that for some fields, we don’t receive any calls, at all. Or we receive a call in one time period, and it is answered in another. so Lets say cell A1 is 0, and Cell B2 is 3. Or A2 is 0 and B2 is 0. How is it possible to get excel to display 0% if, after the calculation the value is < or = to Zero? I have tried the below "IF" function but it returns a #Value error =IF((A1B1)/A*1<=0,"0%",(D67E67)/D67*1) I now leave it to the capable hands of the anonymous internet gods of excel

Counting And Percentages In Multiple Sheets
i have 4 worksheets with various names. i have an 5th worksheet with a named list (TabNames) of the 4 worksheet names each of the 4 worksheets have cells with percentages in them. i would like to check a cell from each sheet and see if the percentage is equal to or above a certain %, for example anything equal to or above 90%. then return the number of cells that meets or exceeds that 90% criteria. so for example sheet1 sheet2 sheet3 sheet4 A 1 80% 91% 76% 82% 2 80% 95% 92% 43% so checking cell A1 in list TabNames would return 1, and checking cellA2 would return 2.

Find Top X Percentages With Duplicate Criteria Lookups
I have a matrix of suppliers which stores quality ratings against various service parameters. Customers then order their priorities and my intention is to then generate a report which lists the suppliers that meet their parameters. a method of generating this report (on ClientRecommendation in the attached) which lists the top 5 suppliers under each weighted parameter, together with their scores? I realise that the answer must lie in some combination of INDEX and MATCH, but I cannot get my brain around how to generate the row numbers, as top 5 suppliers often share the same score for a particular parameter. For example, if I set up a row lookup on 80% I can so far only get one occurrence of 80% and no others. This is probably not clear from my explanation, so I have attached the full example, from which it should be more obvious. I have also seen a very clever VBA solution (#60695), which I think may be the neatest method, but I am not knowledgeable enough to make it work for my case.

Trim Not Working
[data] ... I am having problems removing "2009642" from the above text string(s) (doesn't matter which) This is just a sample line and it is not always in the same place so I am afraid a simple mid function from a set starting point will not suffice, the number is also dynamic in size, location and leading digits. As a result I have created a formula to get rid of the "1 XS0444499197" part of the formula leaving me with " 2009642 " Now unfortunately I need to get rid of the spaces (or what look like spaces) just leaving me with the number but infuriatingly I can not get the trim function to work, so I can only guess that it is not in fact reading these spaces as spaces, and I'm at a bit of a loss how to proceed.

If I enter =CONCATENATE(A2,B2) instead of showing the strings located in A2 and B2 it displays =CONCATENATE(A2,B2) in the cell. I tried creating a new spreadsheet and it works just fine. Does anyone have an idea of what might be happening? I have compared all of the options between the two spreadsheets and don't see any difference in them.

Elsewhere in the sheet, is a drop down box containing the item numbers. Next to the drop down box is a HYPERLINK(VLOOKUP) that fetches the relevant hyperlink depending upon the selected item in the drop down box. Problem is, when I select the ‘lookup’ link, I get an error message ‘cannot open the specified file’ (the original Hyperlink works fine).

Working With Dimensions
Is there a way in excel to say if i select Item1 and it is 100mm x 30mm x 100mm, excel will say this will fit into a compartment called A1 and may also fit into a compartment called B6. I have a list of all the compartments and what the internal dimensions are. So is it just a matter of saying if these dimensions are within those of the compartment then that item will fit in. I have a list of some what 6000 Items that have dimensions. I may pick 200 or so of these items to fit into special compartments of a machine. Because of the varying sizes i need to know what compartment each item will fit in so i can build a machine big enough and get the right size compartments.
