# Formula That Returns A Result Based On All Dates In Column A

Feb 15, 2007

I need a formula to count cells based on the date, so that I can have a blank cell when the answer is 0. I am adding values cumulative and future cells need to be blank because I have a graph that has a trend line and I don't want the trend line to fall off at the end. I also don't want to have to go back to this every month and update it.

Column A
Date
1/2/2007 0:00
1/3/2007 0:00
1/10/2007 0:00
2/10/2007 0:00
2/10/2007 0:00
2/15/2007 0:00
3/22/2007 0:00
3/22/2007 0:00
3/22/2007 0:00
4/31/2007 0:00
4/31/2007 0:00

CM-0003985
CM-0004007
CM-0004008
CM-0004009
CM-0004065

I have this formula in cell F3 that will add the dates through the end of January:
=SUMPRODUCT((A1:A1000>=DATEVALUE("1/1/2007"))*(A1:A1000

## Why Formula Returns Result For One Line And Not The Other?

Jul 27, 2014

I have a two different formulas the return a numbered result(PO Number) in the same column. I then vlookup both of them with the same formula into a pivot table, one returns the result one doesn't. format appears to be the same.

## Sum Formula Returns Incorrect Result

Dec 1, 2009

I have created a table in excel, and it has a very simple sum totals. When i include all cells in the table the total becomes 0. When I exclude a cell in the table, the total shows. I have deleted the row and re inserted another one and copied the cell content from above that was not having a problem,

## Formula Returns A Result But The Cell Displays A Zero

Jan 18, 2006

I have a simple formula subtracting one cell from another using =SUM(XX,-XX). When I click on fx and bring up the function arguments box, the formula result is displayed correctly in that box. However, the cell containing the formula will only display a zero. I have tried reformatting the cells to no avail. I have also tried getting a result using =XX-XX and that does not work either.

## Formula That Returns Result & Font Color Of Referenced Cell

Apr 3, 2008

I have 2 tables, 1 beneath the other - table 1 columns represent date ranges and their values. Columns and their data are alternating color coding. Table 2 references, by means of array formula, this data - IS it possible to include the font color as a result?

BCDEFGH503/0310/0317/0324/03609/0316/0323/0330/03712348Prod113,91113,69713,58213,4849Prod21,9241,8943,1151,86510Prod31,2601,2401,2301,22121Age (Days)22Prod1211391123Prod22624Prod326

Formula in H22 = '{=SUMPRODUCT(((H\$5-\$D22)>=\$E\$5:\$O\$5)*((H\$5-\$D22)

## Auto Hide Column Based On Formula Result

Aug 5, 2008

I have an Excel workbook with multiple sheets. In one sheet, there are many columns that automatically get hidden based on cells values (=1) in another sheet as I type. I use this

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Address = "\$C\$7" And Target.Value = 1 Then
Sheets("Stakes").Range("E:E").EntireColumn.Hidden = True
Else
If Target.Address = "\$C\$7" And Target.Value <> 1 Then
Sheets("Stakes").Range("E:E").EntireColumn.Hidden = False
End If
End If
End Sub

Recently I had to change the second sheet that instead of manually entered values, formula results appear in cells. And the above code doesn't work anymore, columns are always stay unhidden. How can I achieve what I want? I need columns get hidden if formula results =1.

## Convert Result Of Formula To \$ From HNL Based On Chose In Validation Column

Feb 20, 2014

We receive payments in either USD or HNL. I want to be able to have a final price (last column) that puts all prices in USD. I have a reference cell on a separate worksheet (drop down inputs) that we will use to store the data for validations and the conversion rate. We use one conversion rate for all transactions for a fiscal year, so only need to update once a year. Not sure how to make this work.

## Formula That Counts Unique Dates In Column Based On Another Column Value?

Jan 8, 2014

How would I count unique dates associated with another specific value on a worksheet?

For instance, Lets say I want to count each day a particular person makes a sale.

Example:

Sales PersonSale IDSales Date
Don 1001/6/2014
Don 1401/7/2014
Don 1601/8/2014
Jack 1011/6/2014
Jack 1021/6/2014
Mike 901/5/2014
Mike 1031/6/2014

So on another worksheet, I'd have:

Sales Person Days with Sale
Don 3
Jack 1
Mike 2

The Formula would go into the "Days with Sale" Column.

## IF Formula That References A Cell And Returns A Different Result Dependant On The Number In The Cell Being Referenced

Oct 2, 2009

I'm trying to do a formula that references a cell and returns a different result dependant on the number in the cell being referenced.

For example I've said if A1 has a 3 in it then put the word TEST as the result, plus if it has a 4 put the word RESULT.

What I wrote as my formula is as follows-

=IF(A1=3,"TEST")+IF(A1=4,"RESULT")

It works fine when I only use one result but goes wrong when I add two. If I change the words I want to show to numbers it comes up fine but with words it just returns a Value error.

## Refernceing Cells: Formula That Looks At A Cell On A Front Sheet, And Then Returns The Contents Of That Cell As The Result If It Meets The Criteria

Apr 5, 2009

I have a formula that looks at a cell on a front sheet, and then returns the contents of that cell as the result if it meets the criteria. So for example this formula would be in Cell A1 on Sheet2 IF(SHEET1!A1,"New",Sheet1!A1,"-")

This formula is always in the same cell (different sheet) as the cell that it is looking at, down 1500 rows. Instead of having the formula named for each cell is there anyway to ask excel to 'look at this cell but on this other sheet'.
e.g IF(Sheet1!"This Cell" etc). That way no matter what cell you put the formula in it is always referencing the correct cell for the formula?

## Compare Dates In Table & Adjust Adjacent Value Based On Result

May 6, 2008

I have built a macro that tests to see if a date in a range is before the Period Start Date, and if it is, then the labor rate in that same row (3 Columns Over) should be escalated by the appropriate AWI. My code below works, but I am wondering if there is a better way than using offset(0,3) to prevent a code breakdown if columns are inserted between the Date and Rate columns. The date range is names "DATES" and the rate column in names "RATES"

Sub CountTheCells()
Dim cell As Excel.Range
Dim i As Integer
For Each cell In Sheet2.Range("DATES")
If cell.Value < Sheet2.Range("POPS") Then
i = i + 1
End If
Next
MsgBox ("You have " & i & " Rates that will be escalated b4 the POP Begins")
yesno = MsgBox("Would you like to Escalate the Dates and Rates?", vbYesNo)
If yesno = vbNo Then
MsgBox ("Not Done")
Else..........................

## Add 65 Years To Column Of Birth Dates And Result Must Be In Yyyy/mm/dd Format?

Jun 8, 2014

I need to add 65 years to a column of birth dates and the result must be in yyyy/mm/dd format. What is the formula?

## Formula In A1 That Returns Min Value In Column B

Sep 21, 2008

I need a dynamic formula in A1 that returns min value in column B in a range of the last input and 15 cells back.

Then I need another dynamic formula in B1 that returns max value in column B in the same range.

## MAX Of Three Different Values In Three Different Column Returns Formula Error

Jan 30, 2013

I have three different values in three different columns and I want to find the maximum amongst the 3 values.

A1 B1 C1
100 50 40

in D1 I have written a formula
=MAX(A1, B1, C1)

But it is returning an error saying formula you typed contains an error

## Formula To Display Column Header As Result When Any Value Exists In Cells Under Column

Jul 25, 2014

I am trying to write a formula where the column header of the row in which a value other than 0 exists, will display for each instance (row) where a value exists in an array spanning 3 columns. So the result cell could be any of the three column headers, or a combination thereof.

I started the formula in P2 of the GL Detail-2012 tab. File attached.

Here is what I started: =INDEX(\$M\$1:\$O\$1,SUMPRODUCT(COUNTIF(\$M\$2:\$O\$67756,))). Not working.

## VLOOKUP (LEFT) Returns Result Off By One Row

Jan 31, 2014

Code: =VLOOKUP((LEFT(C4,6)),'Data from 7500'!\$B\$16:\$G\$195,6,TRUE)

And it works great, except that the data returned is off by one row. For example, the correct value for the sample name in B107 is located in G107, but the formula returns the value in cell G106. I've tried changing the TRUE to FALSE and that returns #N/A.

## MATCH Function Returns Unexpected Result

Dec 3, 2013

In the attached file I used =MATCH(TRUE,INDEX(\$B\$2:\$B\$10="",0)) to retrieve the location of the first empty cell.

When using the "Evaluate Formula" tool, it is clear that the position in the array created by the INDEX function is the 6th. Nevertheless, the final outcome is 9, being the last cell in range.

## IF Statement: Just Returns FALSE, Despite The Result Being True

Dec 29, 2008

I have a worksheet called "Raw Data" where in columns J, I and G contain values. I would like to write a formula whereby if all 3 conditions are met, it will count the number of values found in column C.

I've tried to write an IF statement but it just returns FALSE, despite the result being true. Need the right combination of IF/AND statements that would do this?

=IF(AND('Raw Data'!\$J:\$J="Maintenance",'Raw Data'!\$I:\$I="Open",'Raw Data'!\$G:\$G="1-2008"),COUNT('Raw Data'!\$C:\$C)). I've tried to attach the workbook, but there's a problem with uploading attachments I think. Sorry if my explanation is unclear.

## Function To Indicate Whether An Expression Returns A Non-zero Result (2007)

Jan 28, 2010

I have this COUNTIFS expression buried in a larger formula:

COUNTIFS(Table[C7],Table[C7]&"",Table[C21],">=1")

and it always returns a value of zero or some positive integer.

I'm now looking for a little "function" that I can wrap around this expression that will:

A) indicate any non-zero result as 1 or TRUE

and

B) indicate any zero result as 0 or FALSE

Something like...

AREYOUNONZERO( (COUNTIFS(Table[C7],Table[C7]&"",Table[C21],">=1") )

I'm sure there's a fairly efficient way to do this... but I'm totally stumped at the moment!

## Vlookup Returns Data From One Row Above The Desired Result

Mar 18, 2007

I have a three or four letter abbreviation of a last name in A1. Column C contains a list of Last Names; column D contains a list of corresponding First Names; and column E contains a formula concantenating the First Names and Last Names from columns C & D.

I have the following formula in B1:

=VLOOKUP(A1,C1:E44,3,1)

I am attempting to match up the three or four letter abbreviation with the concatenated list to return the full name (First and Last) in cell B1, however, I'm not getting the desire result. I keep getting the name in the row just above the name I want.

## Increase In Decimals Returns Strange Result

Jul 21, 2006

I have discovered a strange thing about excel and it is driving me mad and ruining my project.

Basically, If i enter the number 97.4 into cell A1 and then 97.165 into cell B1 and then enter the formula =A1-B1 into cell C1 i get the answer 0.235. Which is correct.

However, when you increase the number of decimal places to 30 the answer that is returned is 0.234999999999999000000000000000.

This calculation result seem to fluctuate wildly depending on the primary numbers in cells a1 and b1. Very rarely have i seen the full 30 decimal places without a bizarre result like this.

Maybe it has been too many years since i was at school and that i am confused with my numbers and that there is a real easy answer to why this result is returned.

As i said it is ruining my project that i am working on. Can anyone help? Why does excel do this? Is there a way to stop this happening? My project relies on this answer to be correct. Is there a way to force excel to stop doing this?

## Writing Formula To Calculate Monthly Returns Based On Annual Growth Rate

Jul 10, 2014

I have a model that makes projections based on annual growth rates. However, I need to evaluate the data based on monthly intervals. With an 8% return on an investment of \$1,000,000 my ending balance at the end of the year should be \$1,080,000 and in year 2 it would be \$1,166,400 and so on. In order to evaluate the monthly data I need each month in year 1 to be based off \$1,000,000, so it would be 8%/12=.006666% or \$6,666.66 per month. The next year would be based off \$1,000,000 + (6,666.66*12) = \$1,080,000 and each month would be \$7,200.

writing a formula to evaluate over 360 periods.

## Index Function Working Correctly When Hit F9 But Returns Different Result

Aug 22, 2012

I'm compiling a list of names on a separate tab from a column that only lists the names sporadically. Problem: In the formula, the IF provides a TRUE, the row function, and consequently, the INDEX function (when I hit F9) provides the correct "name" and row number, but when I hit return, it provides the text 4 cells beneath what it should.

=IF(ROWS(F\$5:F5)

## Return 1,2 Or 3 Based On Result Of Formula

Mar 3, 2007

Any other day but today (I've been starring at numbers too long) I could do this.

I need a simple formula that will return:

a. 3 if resut is >= \$2.5M
b. 2 if over >= \$0.5M
c. 1 if

## Formula To Calculate Result Based On Range

Dec 13, 2012

I have a scorecard that looks something like this:

90% or greater=3
80%-89%=2
70%-79%=1
0%-69%=0

I need the "cell" to react accordingly and I'm lost.

## Create Autoshape Based On Formula Result

Aug 1, 2006

how to have a cell equate to an autoshape based on the results of an "if" statement?

## Color Formula Result Based On Criteria

Jan 4, 2007

I would like to use formulas to display different results eg UNDERBUDGET - OK - OVERLIMIT etc. Ideally they would be shown using different colours & text size. I can't seem to change the colour/text size inside the formula for the different words - only for the whole cell.

## Matrix To Return Risk Rating - Array Returns Opposite Result

Nov 20, 2013

I am looking up a risk matrix to return the risk rating... it is very simple, it works on one sheet, but on a different sheet (looking up different data, but same basic format) it returns exactly the opposite rating.

My formula is: =INDEX(\$G\$6:\$K\$10,MATCH(I19,\$G\$5:\$K\$5,0),MATCH(J19,\$F\$6:\$F\$10,0))

Here is F4 to K10

I have data validation on I19 and J19 based on the cells below

Consequence

Priority
Very Low
Low
Medium
High
Very High

[Code] ..........

BUT... when I put Very Low and Very Low in the two cells (I19 and K19) I get Very High as the return.

## Formula For Students - Result Based On Multiple Criteria

Aug 5, 2014

How to formulate results of students in excel sheet.

From the attached picture (capture1.jpg) of the excel sheet - The rules of exams are:

1. if candidate scores 50% in all 4 papers, PASS and proceed to next year
2. if candidate scores 50% in 2 or 3 papers + borderline fail in 1 or 2 papers, VIVA VOCE exam for the borderline failed paper (Definition of borderline fail is candidate scoring 45 to 50 marks)
3. if candidate scores 50% in upto 2 papers + borderline fail in more than 2 papers, RE-EXAM
4. if candidate scores 45% in 2 or more papers, FAIL and repeat the year

The rules are in the attached picture flowchart.jpg

I am unsuccessful in writing a formula for such multiple criteria...

## Conditional Format Based On Formula Result Being A Whole Number

Dec 6, 2012

I'm looking to conditional format a cell/cells based on whether a formula result returns a whole number or not.

I don't want to include the formula in the sheet itself, just have that as the formula in the condition.

The formula will be along the lines of:

=IF(SUM(BB10/BA10)"a whole number",TRUE,FALSE)

My problem is, is that I don't know who to refer to "a whole number" in Excel formula language.
