Count Of TRUE & FALSE And Assign 1 To True And Yes And 0 To False And No When I Total The Rows
I am trying to Sum lines of info with "True or False" and "Yes and No". I would like to assign 1 to True and Yes and 0 to False and No when I total the rows. Never tried this in Excel, on Lotus and the formula does not work. I can find and replace, but I would like to be able to use a formula.

Find The Matching Text TRUE/FEE Or FALSE/FEE In Columns
I have 2 sheets. On one sheet, this column J2:J490 contains text that either says "TRUE" or "FALSE" and another column AJ2:AJ490, text that says "FEES". (many of the other cells in this column say something else). I need a formula that can find the matching text TRUE/FEE or FALSE/FEE in these columns, count them, and give me the product.

Conditional Or VLookup (Gives True Or False If Text In A Cell Matches Any Cells In A Range)?
I need to create a formula that will give me True or False if text in a cell matches any cells in a range.

For example:

Column A and B have text:


Column C has other and sometimes matching text:

What formula would I use to find out if all cells in Columns A and B are represented in Column C?

Hide Checkbox TRUE/FALSE & Sum Values Adjacent To TRUE
I have a worksheet where I have around 300 rows, each with 7 columns. What I want to do is add a checkbox to each column. I plan on setting non-applicable checkboxes to mixed status and locking the worksheet. I will unlock applicable checkboxes and sumif or countif their value according to row-based scoring, for example, each checked checkbox represents a value of 3. I do not know VBA and have chose to use the form control checkboxes rather than ActiveX.

I believe that a formula for this would be something like: =SUMIF(B1:B3,True,"3") or =COUNTIF($B$1:$B$3,True)*3

I am wondering firstly if I have that right and secondly if there is a way to stop my checkboxes from displaying labels. Currently, if I click on one it displays True behind the active checkbox. If I uncheck it, it displays False.

True/False Datatype
when you type True into a General formatted Excel cell Excel returns TRUE. This value cannot be formatted to a 1 (or a -1) by applying a different format. Thus, does Excel have a boolean data type? Or is it something else like a numeric value that for whatever reason is not receptive to format changes.

Calculations Via True And False
I am currently looking at the workings of a spreadsheet designed by someone else.
Within this sheet, a cell has the formula that , once broken down, equates to:

=100*TRUE (Cell returns a value of 100)

And another that equates to :

=100*FALSE (Cell returns a value of 0)

Am I correct in thinking that TRUE always equals 1, and FALSE always equals 0? I think this is right, but just need someone to confirm.

2007 - Using The True False Function
This is probably quite a simple request but here goes:-


I would like excel to perform this calculation but only if another cell contains a date. I couldn't figure out how to do that so I added another column next to that cell and added =ISNUMBER(A8) to return a true or false statement. I was then going to hide this column but still refer to it.

transaction cleared amount amount balance
date date in out
2 1/1/10 TRUE 1/2/10 TRUE $5.00 =SUM(h2,e2-f2)
3 1/2/10 TRUE FALSE $300.00 =SUM(h3,e3-f3)

I don't know if this makes sense of if anyone can suggest another way of working this out. New to excel so sorry if this is basic stuff.

How To Covert The Value Of A Checkbox From True/False To 1/0

Cell Act As True Or False Checkbox
I have some code for another project which was using checkboxes to select elements to copy/paste.

However, I need too many checkboxes and I think it is slowing down the run time.

Then I would just change my code from

if checkbox1.value = true then...

Check Cells In Each Row TRUE/FALSE
I'm trying to assist is working with sensitive data, and for security reasons I am unable to post the Excel sheet here. Here goes:

The user is working with a sheet in which uses checkboxes, and wants to assign values from cells in the same row as the checkbox to corresponding cells in the sheet (not a different book) if the box is checked.

I guess I should just ask what the best way to accomplish this is? I was thinking I need to do an IF test (do checkboxes return TRUE/FALSE?) and then assign values from the cells I need to corresponding cells in the next sheet. The big question for me using this method: how can I use a single IF statement to assign multiple cell values?

AND Function Returns Zero For FALSE & One For TRUE
I've been asked to adjust some thing with a worksheet someone else created. On the sheet labeled "Criteria" there is a list of dates and some formulas that use these dates. I can't figure out why the result of the formula is a number, i.e "0"; I thought it is supposed to return "TRUE" or "FALSE". If I insert a new sheet, within the same workbook, and insert the same formula, I get "TRUE" or "FALSE". For some reason, the "Criteria" worksheet doesn't return "TRUE" or "FALSE", it returns numbers. I just need to know why this is happening so I can replicate it in the new workbook I'm creating.

Return True/False If Cell Contains Formula
Is there a formula or VB code like the =TYPE() function that will return whether a cell contains a FORMULA? Here's the issue:

I'm writing a macro to update 10,000 sheets. Each sheet has a column that I'm updating with a new formula. Some of these formulas have been previously overwritten with a random number that would delete the formula from the cell. I have to leave the overwritten values where there is no formula, and replace the values of the formulas where they are still intact. I assume that if I can identify whether there is a formula in the cell or not, I can choose that cell to skip or update.

True/false With Lookup List/pivot Table Data
I want to compare a hand entered data sheet to my system data. System data is exported in. Then that data is used to populate a pivot table. I use a lookup list that fills in matching data from my hand typed sheet. From there I want to use true/false to see if the data matches. However, the formula will not copy down. I am sure it has to do with the formula holding a value, but I canít seem to correct it.

1.System data populates sheet
2.Pivot table pulls info I need.
3.Lookup list cross references hand entered data sheet and puts value next to pivot table.
4.I need to do a true false to see if data matches but canít get it to work

Example worksheet: On the worksheet you can see that the true false statements are incorrect. The system data and the hand entered data match two times not once.
