Calculate A Formula Instead Of Returning Text

Mar 28, 2006

I am compiling data from several different, variable, worksheets. I am using
concatenate to add the name of each worksheet into a formula to pull the
appropriate data.

However, it is returning the text of the formula instead of
the results of the formula. How can I make it calculate the result instead of
simply displaying the formula text?

Returning Number As Text In IF Formula

Oct 6, 2009

This is probably a pretty basic question, but I can't find an answer in Excel help or on the interwebs. I have an IF formula and I'd like 0 returned if the statement is false (e.g. =IF(A1<>0, A1, 0)); however, I would like the 0 returned as text. I've tried the TEXT function and using ` in different places, but all to no avail.

Formula To Calculate Percentage Based On Number And Text In Cells

May 14, 2014

I have a form in work which acts as a tick sheet for tasks complete on a construction site. When a task is complete I copy & paste from a key of dates i.e. week ending 11.05.15, this allows me to see what week a task was complete.

Generally I only marked off tasks which were 100% complete but my manager wants me to enter the % of the task complete also, i.e. 80% in the box.

So my question is how can I have the formula assume that any box with a date & shading is 100% and any cell with a number i.e. 80 is only 80% complete. I need it to monitor around 150 cells and give me the overall % complete based on what i have discussed.

The logic given in the website here, i tried But, it is not 100% working. It works for a few rows at the start of the database & it works for the rows at the end of the database. In between, for a few rows, even if the column values are "" it does not hide those rows.

I have two (2) different values in the same column one value is text (INV) the other is a time date stamp 05/18/2012 10:48:32. The text i want to return in a seperate column for these two is if it is INV then the result is "PENDING" if it is a date 05/18/2012 etc. then the result would be "PAID" example:

Payment Status

INV
05/17/2012 08:27:37
INV
and so on...................

Returning A Numerical Value From Text

Oct 25, 2013

I'm trying to streamline my spreadsheet a bit. Sometime last year I managed to use the formula found (on the attached file) in cell K4 to assign a numerical value to a lettered grade. However, it's been a year or so since I thought about it and so I've completely forgotten how to edit it to make it more appropriate for this spreadsheet!

Essentially what I'm trying to do is a workaround for what I've already done in columns E and F: I'm trying to show the difference between two grades (letters) as a numerical value. Is there a way to do this, or is the VLOOKUP work around I've used in columns E and F going to be the simplest way?

Looking Up Text And Returning Scores

Jan 18, 2007

| item1, item2, item4 |

Elsewhere I have a set of points for these like this:

| item1 | 4 |
| item2 | 2 |
| item3 | 3 |
| item4 | 1 |

(the |'s represent cell borders, if it isn't obvious)

What I want is a formula that can grab the text, then produce a total score. So, for my example, the result would be 7, totalling the scores for item1, item2, and item4.

I know that the score lookup is trivial (just a VLOOKUP), but I can't figure out how to do the scan for the data from a single cell. I want the items to remain in a single cell if possible.

Returning Text Based On Max Value In A Table?

Apr 14, 2014

I am looking to return text based on the maximum value in a table.

Dog
2

Cat
10

Horse
4

Fish
27

Lion
1

Let's call the column with the animals over it "A" and the one with the numbers "B", and the rows are 1-5 to make explanations easier

I am looking to have a formula return the name of the animal with the highest three numbers (fish, cat, horse), but don't need the numbers. I am pretty confident this would be an index match formula, but I'm not too familiar with those functions.

Returning A Text In A =minimum Function

Dec 11, 2009

I have 3 columns of numerical data. In my fourth column, I would like to return the minimum value from the 3 previous columns (=min). However, instead of returning the lowest number, I would like it to return the column title (=text) of the lowest number. I haven't been able to locate a function that does this.

Returning Most Occurring Text In A Range

Jun 6, 2014

Store 1
Store 2
Store 3
Store 4
Top Selling
Second
Third
Fourth

[code]....

I am trying to find two formulas:

Formula 1: Formula 1 will be entered into rows 6:9 (in this example). I need it to return the highest selling product (by store) in order form highest selling to lowest selling. I have a makeshift formula already but it cannot report in order (only the highest selling) and it cannot get past the one return index( limitation. When it finds two high sellers it prioritizes the ranking based on how well that product has sold across the other stores. Product 1 sold 13 times across all stores. Product 2 sold 9 times across all stores. So if product 1 & 2 tie for Store 3 (as shown in the example) Product 1 would be chosen based on its sales across the row.

Formula 2 : Same as formula 1 but with Stores (in column 6-9). It reports the highest selling store and treats ties the same way as formula 1.

Returning A Text Value Based On 2+ Conditions

Jun 17, 2009

I'm trying to lookup values that are a combination of text and numbers. The difficulty is I need to use two criteria to look it up. I've been trying to use a combination of Sumproduct and Index,Match but it doesn't seem to be working. I think I need to add some sort of text function in there. Below is some data for example purposes.

A B C E F G
M S Get value from G M S 5G
M T M T 6M
M U M U 7H
M V M V 8K

Web Query Returning Text But Not Numbers

Oct 3, 2009

I have this web query to retrieve Stock Market data for individual scrips which used to work fine till 2 weeks ago:
[url]

Since then all it returns is the text in the tables. Numbers eg dates and stock prices come as blanks.

These show up alright in the browser (Mozilla as well IE).

Some other tables at this site plugged into query return complete data. eg [url]

I tried many different scrips with same results.

Since it was working fine till 2 weeks ago AND other tables at this site are working fine, I suppose the site changed something.

Returning Number From Text String

Jul 24, 2007

I have been trying a few formulas to return numbers from a string of text. The problem I am having is that there are more than one set of numbers that I need returned.

Here is an example of the text entered in F2

"K2PT bus structure [2 locations] & strain structure South West of L9L12-12 [1 location] / Use #4/0, std, cu conductor, connector Cat ID#10842 at structure leg & connector Cat ID#9655 at #4/0, std, cu gnd loop to connect #4/0, std, cu gnd loop to str leg."

What I need returned in a cell H2 is the numbers beside the Cat ID#

10842, 9655

I tried a Return Right Value formula, but I think because there are more than one possible value it isn't working properly.

Returning The Displayed Text Of A Date Cell

Nov 20, 2008

Take the displayed date from a cell, in this case formatted as yyyymmdd, and simply display the date as plain text, not converted to the 1900 date system. For example, I have a date cell that reads 20080610, but everything I have tried returns 39609. But I want it to return 20080610 in plain text so that I can use RIGHT and LEFT functions to extract the year, month and day.

Returning Row / Column Number Of Cell That Contains Particular Text

Jul 16, 2014

I am looking to write a formula that will return the row or column number of the cell that contains a particular text within the string. I know it can be done with script, but need it as a formula. Also, to add another level of difficulty, I'd like it to be a traditional formula, no special keystroke to activate. It will be used within a much larger formula.Ex. If G5 has the string "CURRENT DATE" in it, and I look for "DATE", the formula would return 7 for the column or 5 for the row.

Vlookup - Referring To A Column Other Than The First And Returning Text

Sep 28, 2006

I have two worksheets. On one worksheet will be a place to enter a five digit number. In the adjacent cell, I want to search on the second worksheet in a three-column area for that same five digit number. The five-digit numbers on the second worksheet are located in the third column and the text I want returned from the second column. I cannot change the order of the columns as the first worksheet will be an "add-on" worksheet to a widely used spreadsheet within our company (this spreadsheet already has the second worksheet formatted).

It works I1 is blank and it works when F7:K7 has data and I1 is initialed. However, when I1 is initaled and there is no data in F7:K7 the cell reads "N/A". It should read "Approved with insufficient data".

Finding And Returning Unique Text From Incomplete Table?

May 11, 2014

I am building a table that assigns three roles to chores: Accountable, Helper1, and Helper2. I have a "user interface" tab, where there is a dropdown list where particular chores can be selected. I am looking to have the people in each role for the selected chore returned into the cells. I have attached an example file to clarification. For example, I am looking to have the name (Mike, Shannon, Tom, Blake, Kelsey, Sam) from tab #2 populated into the related cells C3, D3, and E3 on tab#1. I think it's possible with a long imbedded IF function, but I am looking for a more simple solution if possible.

Sort Dates Linked To Formulas Also Returning Text

Jun 18, 2007

I have a list of football fixtures that I want to pace in date order. The fixtures are however linked to a grid which has the following formula =IF(FIXTURES!C1="","",FIXTURES!C1 )

so that a zero doesn't appear until a result is actually added. Unfortunately when you sort the fixtures into date order the grid still looks at the original square, NOT the moved one appertaining to the fixture.

Formula Returning Following Wednesday

May 8, 2014

I need a formula for cell P5 that returns the date for the following Wednesday from a date in cell I3?

For example, if in cell I3 01/05/2014 (through to 06/05/2014) is entered, cell P5 should show 07/05/2014

If the Wednesday date is in cell I3, cell P5 should should that same date (e.g. 07/05/2014 in cell I3 and P5).

IF Formula Returning Two Results?

I am using this formula. How can I get it to pull 'Sales Materials'!$F17:$F69' and display along with 'Sales Materials'!$B$17:$B$69 when my logical statement is true.

=INDEX('Sales Materials'!$B$17:$F$69,SMALL(IF('Sales Materials'!$E$17:$E$69="YES",ROW('Sales Materials'!$B$17:$B$69)-16),ROW(A1)),1)
I've tried using * but I think something is going on with "-16" which I was told to you use to account for headers.
