Copying Information From Table But Only Number Shows Up Not Actual Formula?

Aug 13, 2013

I am trying to track inventory over 160 days in a spreadsheet. Every week I update a table that shows the number of skus and dollar amount that are over 160 days in a table. I have a ton of formulas that will automatically populate once I put in the new weekly data on a different spreadsheet. I want to track the weekly data so what I would really like to be able to do is paste the actual numbers and not the formulas into another excel spreadsheet so I can track the progress over time. Is there a way to just paste the actual numerical number instead of the formula itself?

Macro Of Formula That Shows Character Location Number Of Text File

Aug 14, 2014

I am looking for a way to show the character location number of a text file, possibly in the first row or a macro that I can run at any given location that will give me the location # I am currently viewing.

Currently, when I open the file I can see the character # at the opening screen (see attached file) but they disappear when it actually converts. I would like to be able to keep the character location ruler once the file is opened in Excel so I don't have to manually count.

Formula That Ranks Dynamic Unsorted Data

Aug 18, 2014

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

Formula That Reads Grade And Then Ranks These By 1st-5th Place According To Score

Feb 10, 2014

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.

Say, for example, I have a spreadsheet as follows:

How To Stop Recalculation When Cell Shows Certain Number

Jul 7, 2012

I have this sheet full of random data and I want to recalculate extra fast so I keep my finger on F9 which causes the random data to randomize really fast of course. Now, in B1:AT1 I have numbers that change with every recalculation but here is the problem. I want the recalculation to stop when excel identifies a zero in that range which doesn't happen often.

Textbox That Shows Current Record Number Or Listbox To Show All Records

Apr 14, 2013

I am looking for a text box code that works with a search userform.

Basically, I search using my userform find function and if there are more than one record found I want to be able to either:

1) have the records found appear in a listbox
2) have the first record appear in the userform but a text box will show I am on 1 of X records and when I click a command button, go the next record, which will be 2 of x records and so on...


Private Sub cmbNext_Click() Dim FirstCl As Range
'first data Entry
Set FirstCl = Range("a2").End(xlDown).Offset(1, 0)

[Code] ....

This is the code for the button that goes to the next record but I am unsure how to relate that a listbox or text box that shows the record number I am on out of the total that there are.

I would also be looking for another button that goes back one record. So i am hoping it's as easy as reversing the code for the next record function.

I am not sure if the listbox that could show all I records and one can just be selected is easier than showing the textbox with the " 1 of X records".

Counting Number Of Times TA Shows Within Strings Of Text In A Range Within Sheet?

Dec 7, 2011

How would I go about counting the number of times TA shows within strings of text in a range within a sheet. Example: TA,MH in cell A2, CB,TA in cell C40, ES,TA in cell Q19. Result would be 3. Ideally, I'd like the formula to reference a cell that has TA as the look up data such as in A1 I'd have TA.

COUNTIF Formula Which Shows A %

Mar 5, 2009

I already have a conditional format which is working OK. I would like to put a formula in the cell so it shows a % so currently it would be 100% as there is 3 cells below showing 3 greens.

Alternativily each colour is worth a value - Green = 1, Amber = 2, Red = 3. So Cell I3 would show 3.

Formula That Only Shows Data Only If Different From Above?

Jun 19, 2014

I am trying to create a basic invoice spreadsheet.

On worksheet 1, I have days of the month A4 to A35. Columns B, C, D, E are headed.

Every hour of work I would enter a " 1 " in the correct cell for the day. For example, 1 hour, every segment of the day, I would enter "1" in cells Bx, Cx, Dx and Ex. This continues for the month;

On a 2nd worksheet, this is neatened up, and I have added formulas to work out the cost and type of call;

On the third worksheet, I want to display roughly the same, however when there has been no work on the day (ie the date displays "None" and the adjacent cells show: blank, blank, blank, blank, £0.00), I want it to skip the cell and display the next date which has data to show (ie a date). The data on the adjacent cells needs match with the date (in the same way as physically deleting a 'non worked' whole row).

This then on the invoice worksheet would look neat and display only the days actually worked.

What formula(s) could I use to do this.

IF Formula Shows FALSE When It Shouldn't

May 30, 2014

I am facing an issue related to IF formula. It does show the correct result in one and another cell, but in a few others - doesn't.

This is strange since all variables are correct, and parameters are the same for every cell. And, in theory every cell should show the right answer.

In addition, the result doesn't change even when changing variables in cells that are dependants to cell where IF is located.

Concerning the formula itself. Variables are as such:

- different container types (20, 40, 40rf, 45cs, 45rf, 45)
- different weight limitations per container type (e.g. 20 container max weight 26t)
- using IF(OR(AND(....
- if any of the conditions met (e.g. 20 container < 26t ) then VLOOKUP for the rate from data based on the place name.
- if non of conditions met, then show "Overweight cargo"

Formula Shows Result As FALSE?

Feb 15, 2014

I have following formula:

Why does this formula show result as "FALSE"?

If cell B56 is empty, then I need a result of "". i.e. blank result, but it shows FALSE word.


then you go straight to the TRUE nested IFs

IF(LEFT(B$52,3)="Pla",RIGHT(Table!AN4,2)&"% Discount",
IF(LEFT(B$52,3)="Gol",RIGHT(Table!AO4,2)&"% Discount",
IF(LEFT(B$52,3)="Sil",RIGHT(Table!AP4,2)&"% Discount",""))), "need something here" )

so to get ""

IF(LEFT(B56,2)="on",IF(LEFT(B$52,3)="Pla",RIGHT(Table!AN4,2)&"% Discount",IF(LEFT(B$52,3)="Gol",
RIGHT(Table!AO4,2)&"% Discount",IF(LEFT(B$52,3)="Sil",RIGHT(Table!AP4,2)&"% Discount",""))), "" )

Blank Cell Shows 0 Or 12:00 AM If There Is Formula

May 25, 2009

I am getting 0 or 12:00 AM when I format cell as time and put formula.

I working on timesheet using this formula (=SUMIF('2'!G4,"="&TODAY(),'2'!E17)). If date in G4 on sheet2 match with todays/current date then copy data in cell E17 to sheet3(b11).

G4 = todays date
E17 = time eg. 2:25 AM ( I have to format destination cell as time because E17 has time value

Formula works fine but when there is no data in E17 or E17 is blank then my destination cell shows 12:00 AM.

Formula Shows In Cell, Not Result

Jan 3, 2008

Why is it that when I edit some cell's formulas and press enter the result is not the changed formula but the formula itself complete with the '=' sign infront of the fuormula. The work around for me is to cut the formula and paste it into a new cell then drag the old cell over the previous one I tried to edit.

Vlookup Shows Formula Not Data In Every Cell

Every time I make a change, it reverts to the formula and I have to do 'text to columns' again.

Formula Shows An Error Once Source Is Closed

Nov 30, 2007

I am linking two worksheets together. Formulas work fine except when I close the source sheet, it turnes into #REF error. I saw in one of the posts that you can not use INDIRECT formula on closed workbooks (INDIRECT is a part of the formula in my sheet) and downloaded the changingExternal. zip file as directed. Although, after staring at it for a while, I realized that I had no idea as to what was going on in there.

Formula Shows In Cell As R1C1 Reference

Jun 20, 2008

When I first started using excell I was relatively good at it, however a few changes were made. The main one being for excell 2002 was the collumns were not by letter. A minor problem that I managed to get past. However the next was a function issue. Before I remembered a way to total rows with a simple function like =b3*c3, which worked for the first one. Then, from that point, I could copy that formula and paste it to all of the cells in the collum in which the forumula changed for individual cells to =b4*c4, =b5*c5, etc.

My questions are simple. Is there a way that I can do this on Excell 2002 without having to do it on a cell by cell basis, and is there a way to change collumns back to letters.

I've attached the spreadsheet in which I want to figure this out on. The goal, is to total price and quantities sold into the totals section without doing it on a cell by cell basis.

Conditional Formula Syntax Shows Hash Signs

Jul 1, 2007

I trying to write a conditional formula to test data in a cell to see where it falls between certain values, and depending on the data in the cell, will display a message in another cell showing what level has been attained. It's a long formula and I may not have the syntax correct. Can someone look at this and tell me where I have went wrong? All I get in the target cell is "################".

Here is the formula:

Try this formula. Array formulas will have curly brackets {} emcompassing the ENTIRE formula. You do not add these, you Enter the formula with Ctrl+Shift+Enter and Excel will add them (details: Array formulas). Many more Excel Formulas
=IF(c13<1600,"Not at prize level yet",IF(AND(c13>=1600,c13<=1999.99),"You have reached level 1",IF(AND(c13>1999.99,c13<=2499.99),"You have reached level 2",IF(AND(c13>2499.99,c13<=2999.99),You have reached level 3,IF(AND(c13>3000,c13<=3499.99),"You have reached level level 4",IF(c13>3500,"You have reached the top level!!"))))))

Excel 2010 :: Formula Evaluation Shows Numbers In Quotes

Dec 21, 2011

I'm using Excel 2010.

A formula I am using is outputting "0" instead of the expected value. Upon evaluating the formula I realized that this was because some of the values - years, in this case - had quotes around them while others did not. Please see the image below for the screenshot of the evaluation.

These values - the years - are being evaluated in the following formula.

This formula references the following sheet (an excerpt from that sheet). You can also see the formulas found in the cells causing the problem.

*ABC5212/20/20102010Adjustments53*20112011543/17/20112011Carwen Printers559/9/20112011Adjustments569/9/20112011Copeland Printing
Spreadsheet FormulasCellFormulaB52=IF(A52="",C52,YEAR(A52))B53=IF(A53="",C53,YEAR(A53))

I suspect that the problem is being caused by the output of the formula in these cells. If I simply type in "2011" instead of using the formula in B52:B56, then the first formula in the code section above does not have a problem.

How I can reconcile this?

Editing Formula Shows Text All Red, Parentheses Color-coded

Oct 20, 2007

But the formula seems to be working properly.

I've got ALOT of parentheses, 5 nested IFs, 5 ANDs, 4 ORs. The ANDs and ORs are within the IFs.

While editing the formula, I can, at times, achieve the condition where the cell references become color-coded. Or at least some of them do. But, when I get to this point, I'm usually at a spot where I can see the formula isn't right.

I'm confused. What does it mean when my text is all red when I go to edit a formula? Did I hit some limit? Again, I don't get error messages and the formula seems to work properly.

I do have a working solution with an array formula similar to this, but it slows down my macro (30 minutes instead of 10 seconds) as I need it to calculate 16 times

Unique Ranks Function

May 10, 2007

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:

100 1
99 2
98 3
98 3
98 3
97 4
96 5
95 6

It would produce it as this:

100 1
99 2
98 3
98 4
98 5
97 6
96 7
95 8
