# Combination Of Numbers

Jun 22, 2007
I have a list of numbers from 1-7 would look like this each number in a seperate cell.

3 5

1 2 3 5 6 7

2 4 5 6 7

6 7

4 6

6

I want to use one number from each row (which there is only 6 rows) and then find every number from 1-7 that will complete the sequence 1-7. So with the numbers above (using one number from each row) the only other numbers that could be used would be 3 or 5.

The combos that would work:

row 1 use 3 ----------- row 1 use 5

row 2 use 1 ----------- row 2 use 1

row 3 use 2 ----------- row 3 use 2

row 4 use 7 ----------- row 4 use 7

row 5 use 4 ----------- row 5 use 4

row 6 use 6 ---------- row 6 use 6

5 would complete ---------- 3 would complete

Remember the numbers and how many numbers in each row can change but will always be 1-7 and I always need to find every number that can complete the sequence 1-7 by using one number from each row.

I am trying to show the all possible combinations of a set of numbers in Excel, in my case I think permutations are more appropriate to use. For example: there are three numbers 1, 2, 3 I want to show results like:

1, 2, 3

1, 3, 2

2, 1, 3

2, 3, 1

3, 2, 1

3, 1, 2

The functions in Excel available only give the total number, but I want to see these combinations!

The numbers are file attributes, as you know these are

Normal = 0

Read Only = 1

Hidden = 2

System = 4

Volume = 8

Directory = 16

Archive = 32

These numbers are cumulative, so if a file has an attribute of 5 it is Read Only and System (1 + 4), it can't be anything else. Or if it has an attribute of 6 it can only be Hidden and System (2 + 4).

What I need is a spreadsheet that calculates every possible combination of these numbers, so I can check my Select Case statement has covered all possible combinations.

If it was just a one off project I could just work it out "by hand", but I have realised that there are several other projects I have that this would be useful in.

e.g. I am doing a skills matrix at work. If I give each skill a number, then give each employee a cumulative total number then I can have a spreadsheet that shows their skills. For each employee number there will only be one possible combination of skill that add up to that number.

My employer often adds new skills, so each time this happens I will have to check every combination is covered.

So I really need a spreadsheet solution, something I can input a group of numbers and it will show me a list of every possible combination of those numbers. The number of numbers in the group will vary, so a solution that only works for a group of (say) 6 numbers won't work. It has to work on a variable group of numbers.

If I have A1 = 1, A2 = 3, A3 = 5, A4 = 7, and A5 = 9 in column A, Would someone know how to get the combination of numbers in column A that equal 13, or 24 for example?

Is there anyway to use Excel to determine which of a set of numbers equals a total? I encounter this issue when dealing with accounts receivable. We receive payments with no details on what is being paid. I have a list of open items and a total being paid. I would like to have Excel determine which combination of invoices can be added together to match the payment.

I have provided an attachment. what I am trying to accomplish. I am trying to have a worksheet that if I input multiple 3 number combinations into the input cell range, after pressing the sort button, it would then sort, rank and count each 3 number combination for me. So as my attached file illustrates, the input cells would be A9:D14. In this sample the ranking consists of cells A19 - A31 as the ranking columns. Cells F19 - F31 show the counted and sorted results and are ranked accordingly. I need a sort button as illustrated in cell F10 to make the worksheet function after the 3number combinations are inputted in cells A9:D14. How do I get started to make this work? I do not know VBA codes or macros so I will need guidance along the way if this is what is needed. I do have some working knowledge of formulas (e.g. countif, rank, etc.)

I have a list of 10 of my favorite/lucky numbers that I want to play in the lottery. The lottery picks 5 numbers total. I need a way to show me all the possible combinations of my 10 numbers picked in a 5 number draw (hope that makes sense). There are no repeat combinations- for example- I DO NOT WANT 1-2-3-4-5 and 5-4-3-2-1 to come up as separate combinations- so each of my favorite #s needs to be used only once in each combination, and each set used once.

I have searched this board for 2 hours now- read tons of other posts, but not finding a real solution. The output will be a list of all the possible combinations (no repeats, and no permutations) using my 10 favorite numbers. Another example-

1-2-3-4-5

1-2-3-4-6

1-2-3-4-7

1-2-3-4-8

1-2-3-4-9

1-2-3-5-6

1-2-3-5-7

and so on.

How do I create this? I realize the resulting table will be quite a large number of combinations- but we're going to have fun with it and pick a few at random.

I have a formula that I can't get to paste successfully in the forum - it keeps getting cut off?!? ... but I think I can probably simplify my explanation to get the answer I want anyway.

I need to only show the value from AUS!$H$2:$H$17 if the C2 & D2 combination are the same as the AUS!$B$2:AUS!$B$17 & $AUS!$C$2:AUS!$C$17 combination.

I have 2 cells with numbers. In a 3rd cell I want to create a formula which looks at the 2 data cells and shows a value. The rules are the following: If C1 or C2 are bigger than Xthen C3=value1 else C3=value2. I have some basic excel knowledge but im not very familiar with functions. I'm using Excel 2007.

I need to consolidate several amount and make sure which of them falls into a sum of an amount.

I wonder if excel can find all the calculation in range A, and highlight those that equal to the cell D10 (example as per my attachment).

how to create a list (I know how to calulate the count) of combinations without repetition when choosing 2,3,4 and 5 words from a set of 5 in Excel 2007.

e.g. Alpha,Bravo,Charlie,Delta,End

(AlphaBravo=BravoAlpha)

Choosing 2 = 10

Choosing 3 = 10

Choosing 4 = 5

Choosing 5 = 1

on combination of numbers

on the extreme left column, i have 23 numbers from A1:A23. All 23 numbers are in the form of 4 digit. For example A1 there is 1234, i need to display the possible 3 digit combination of this in the same row (like say 123,124,234,134 in B1,C1,D1 AND E1).

Another example in A2 there is 3545, i need to display 354,455,355 in the same row in B2,C2,D2

I need to perform this operation for the 23 numbers on the extreme left row. Can give me some hint on the code.

I was just wondering if it was possible to only allow cells in a worksheet to only allow values that are a combination of 2 arrays whether it be through data validation or other means. For example, if I have an array that has a b and c and a second one with 1 2 and 3, is it possible to only allow values a1 a2 a3 b1 b2 b3 c1 c2 c3?

I would like to check a combination of two cells, if these two cells are both empty (not zero, just blank) then it will return a blank in another cell. I tried using AND but am unsure how it works. I would like to use a "Case" Function.

Function FirstCheck(Count1, Count2)

Select Case FirstCheck

Case Count1 = "", Count2 = ""

FirstCheck = ""

Case Else

FirstCheck = Abs((Count1 - Count2) / (Count1 + Count2))

End Select

End Function

I have created a program where there is a spreadsheet containing all of the items in a loan tools store, which are issued out to people. I have created a "Search/Find" function within the "Issued Items" sheet. Within this search function, you are able to search all or any combination of the following criteria: Serial; Description; Name; Location. For example: If you just type data in the "Serial" field, it will just search that column and select the cells which contain that value.

The problem I am having is when searching multiple criteria, each and every cell in the columns which are searched is selected. Whereas, I would like only the cells which match all of the criteria to be selected.

For example: If I was to type "1" into the "Serial" field, "2" into the "Description" field, "Liam" into the "Name" field, and "Workshop" into the location field:

Current: Serial column is searched and all cells with "1" in are selected. Description column is searched and all cells with "2" in are selected. Name column is searched and all cells with "Liam" in are selected. Location column is searched and all cells with "Workshop" in are selected.

What I Would Like: Program to search each of the specified columns and only select data which meets the searched criteria. For example: Rows 20 & 28 to be selected as they both contain, Serial "1", Description "2", Name "Liam", Location "Workshop".

Note: The sheet will have password protection.

i've attached a worksheet yet removed my attempt at formulas as it would have made most of you cry... what i'd like to do is select an item from a dropdown list (B1) (that i've built and it works, phew) and display the summary data (B3:B10) from the column or sum of columns in array (A12:F21) as explained in the relationship matrix.

I've tried ifsum and dsum (copied in each cell B3 to B10 of course) yet it doesn't extract items from the array with the drop-down selection. nor does it add columns together.

My Columns are as follows:

A1-Criminal Name, B1-Crime, C1-Age, D1-Ratings, E1-Punishment

In the punishment column one will get 22 years life imprisonment if he fulfills the following conditions.

1. He must have done Rape OR Murder

AND

2. His Age should be >30

AND

3. His Ratings should be>8

It should throw 22 years in the Punishment column only if the above conditions are met otherwise it should be Nil.

More Info on this:

1. Crime column includes Murder, Rape, Robbery, Assault, Kidnap etc

2. Age column ranging from 22-75 years.

3. Ratings column ranging from 1-10 points

4. There are 3400 records we have in the list

How to write an IF AND OR combination formula for this ?

I have to write a formula which states the following:

if cells AA1,AB1 &AC1 = 0 then "Slow-Moving",

if of these cells AA1,AB1 &AC1 contains a number then "OK",

if cells, AA1,AB1,AC1,Z1,X1,Y1 all = 0 then "Non-Moving"

I believe an If and AND combination could work but its not working for me.

I'm trying to figure out how to setup a worksheet to find the most common 2 digit numbers going vertically from the bottom(cold) to the top(hot) it would consist of 90 digits 0 thru 9

it would look like this

4 0 3 9 0 4 3 3 2

9 2 5 6 5 6 9 6 6

8 9 9 3 1 0 2 9 8

1 6 7 5 9 9 8 2 5

2 7 2 2 2 8 5 1 3

0 1 4 7 4 7 6 0 9

3 5 6 4 3 3 0 4 4

7 8 8 1 8 5 7 8 7

5 4 1 8 6 1 1 5 1

6 3 0 0 7 2 4 7 0

each vertical line would be considered weeks 9 thru 1. week 9 would be the first vertical line of digits on the left. it could also contain the most common 2 digits horizontally. Both 2 digit values would be color coded ex. blue equals most common 2 digit horizontally and green equals vertically. I would also like to color code the most common 2 digit value diagonally as long as it is the most common of either the vertical or horizontal 2 digit. Each number is seperate on the worksheet they would not be pairs. im using excell 2003.

I am trying to do a lookup from the price list based on the below data file, my problem is I need the price that falls within the qty range from the price list, the price list is not consistent and changes with every item. I would like one formula that is sophisticated enough to work no matter where the qty range lies.

Item #_____Qty Ordered________Price List

20800______1,500

20800______4,000

20800______6,500

20800______8,000

20800______9,050

20800______11,000

20800______14,000

Price List

Item #____Order Qty________List Price

20800_____2,000___________$3.00

20800_____4,000___________$2.95

20800_____6,000___________$2.90

20800_____8,000___________$2.85

20800_____10,000__________$2.80

20800_____12,000__________$2.75

20800_____14,000__________$2.70

formula below... currently is giving me a:#N/A

=IF(EG55="FCST",VLOOKUP(--EE55,Control!$R$8:$R$20,6,0)*(SUMPRODUCT(--($HH$11:$HH$62=EE55),--($HJ$11:$HJ$62=EJ55),--($HL$11:$HL$62))),NA())

If I remove the vlookup part the formula return the correct results, but I want the resulting number be multiplied by a percentage (that what's the vlookup is trying to accomplish).
