# Formula To See If Cell Divides Evenly Into 5

May 22, 2014
I need a formula to do two things I need it to look at Cell C2 and if it does not contain a number then I want the letter A put in the cell, if it contains a number then if that number is divisible by five giving a whole number i.e like 10,15 20 would, then input 1, but if not 2.

I have a column of numbers in cell A1 through A10.

In cell A11 I would like to count how many times the numbers listed from A1 through A10 are evenly divisible by 5.

How would I do this?

When we sell things here at a 'sale' price there is always an argument as to who's department needs to give the discount off.

Each job we do has a labour time and an hourly labour rate.

Each part has a profit in it.

So if something is normally £100 but we are going so sell it for £80 we need tio split the £20 reduction evenly to both departments based on the GP each department has in the sale.

See attached : GP Reduction per department.xlsx

I'm working on a project that will will have varying tasks & estimating the total duration to complete these tasks.

For example:

If estimating that the min-project will take 90 days & I have 17 tasks, how can I distribute the 90 days evenly amongst the 17 tasks?

I don't know how else to ask this so I will just tell you what I'm trying to do.

-I have a list of name on one column say "A"

and this list of names goes through "A1" through "A145"

-I am taking those names and pasting them via "right click" "paste special"

"Values" onto another spreadsheet.

-BUT I have to take each name one by one and paste them evenly

in every 8th row for example ( "A1" A8" "A16" "A24" ...)

-Is there a way to take the existing data on that row and just spread it evenly throughout the same row? So I don't have to take names one by one by one...

I am currently tracking our company's service tasks in Excel and would like a formula or method that will take the total hours a task has been approved for and equally distribute the hours into columns under each month.

Column A = Resource

Column B = Task Owner

Column C = Task Name

Column D = Task Description

Column E = Approved Hours

Column F = Start Date

Column G = End Date

Column H = Jan 07

Column I = Feb 07

Column J = March 07 etc. etc.

I basically want to take the approved hours (Column E) and have those hours automatically calculated and filled into the month columns (Column H forward), as per the start and end date fields (Column F & G) so the hours are evenly distributed over each month.

How to increase & decrease numbers evenly for a spreadsheet.

I have a number in cell F16 that can be changed and for this example say it has a value of 900.

I have a number in cell F17 that is always more than cell F16, for this example lets say it is 1000.

What I'm trying to do is create 10 numbers evenly increasing away from 900 (F16) in value, & 10 numbers evenly decreasing in value away from 900 (Cell F16) but here's the catch.

What makes this tricky is that the numbers that are increasing in value away from 900 (F16) can't be bigger than the value of F17 , IE in this example the number 1000

So the formulas must evenly distribute 10 numbers BETWEEN 900 & 1000. This must have the same even distribution for the increasing numbers & decreasing numbers.

I'll attach a sheet also. So, if you say 900 is a starting point & 1000 is the ending point, what formulas would you need in each cell to evenly increase to 1000?

Also,, going the other way, decreasing, away from 900 at the same rate as the increase?

Really stuck n this 1.

Spreadsheet here: [URL] ......

I'll attach a spreadsheet .xls

I am using a staff schedule spreadsheet and have each column displaying text of where a staff person is assigned.

Instead of displaying the word "lunch" separately across several columns, is it possible to merge several columns and have the word "lunch" automatically stretched evenly across the several merged columns?

I dont want it to be centered but to literally be stretched to fit evenly across all of the merged cells.

Version: Excel 2007 WinXP

I'm basically looking for something almost like an inverse function to INDIRECT. This function would first look at a cell's formula as a text string, parse out the first valid cell reference in A1 format, and return that cell as a text string.

Detail: I have a spreadsheet with cells that point to other values. I would like to get only the row number from the first cell reference in the formula residing in a given cell. For example:

Suppose A1 has the formula =AL267. and A2 has the formula =SUM(AL94:AL235)

I would like a formula in B1 that returns the text string, "AL267" so that I would know this is the first reference.

Ideally it could be dragged down to B2 such that it returns the text string "AL94" (and not "AL235") because AL94 is the first cell reference in A2's

Currently I am copying the formulas after hitting ctl+` and pasting that text into a text editor, followed by text operations to manipulate the results into the desired values. Any solution that didn't involve going out to notepad.

Note: I know the syntax below is not how you would enter forumlas into Excel but I am using it to quickly illustrate what I'm trying to do and need help with. A cell not in column D, E, or F contains a formula of the form: F=IF(D>0, D/E, "blank") .

Note: If a cell in column D>0 (eg. D5>0) then the cell to the right of the selected D cell (eg. E5) will also be >0 ; otherwise, both cells will be empty.

This is what I want to do: If cell D?>0 , then F?=D?/E? ; otherwise, F?=empty .

Example 1: If D5>0, then F5=D5/E5 ; otherwise F5=empty .

Example 2: If D7>0, then F7=D7/E7 ; otherwise F7=empty .

Etc. I want this to apply to all rows.

I cannot enter the formula directly into the F? cell because sometimes I will need to enter data into cell F? manually. When I need to enter data manually into F? this results in the formula being overwritten by the new data and this means that if I ever needed to have data calulated based on the formula F=IF(D>0, D/E, "blank") I would have to re-enter the formula from scratch over again; obviously this is a nusance.

I have a situation where I have to curve fit data, this can lead to different formulas being used with varying constants.

Is it possible to pickup a TEXT based formula and related constants from other cells, and then place this into another cell as a functioning formula. For Example

Cell A1 contains the formula as a text string whether it be y=a+bx+cx^2, or y=a+b/x, etc

Cells A2:A6 contain the individual constants, a, b, c, etc

I would then want the VBA to read the text based formula and put it into an output cell as a functioning excel formulae.g

In cell B10: =a+b*A10+c*A10^2

I understand picking the constants up and putting the formula should not be too much of an issue, however trying to insert the variable form of the curve fit is the part that I am struggling with, and am unsure if possible.

Here is the scenario:

A B C D

BananasApplesOrangesTotal113=A1+B1+C1

I need to reference the formula in D1 with the cells headers names.

In a perfect world, it would take

=A1+B1+C1:

and produce:

=Bananas+Apples+Oranges

I'm having some trouble trying to get excel to input a formula into a cell. I'm still a novice at VBA right now, so I don't think my problem will be too much of a brain buster.

I want a formula in Cell A6 (and I already know it correctly works) in this format: =E6&VLOOKUP(I6,'FA-Fund Data'!B$1:C$2000,2,FALSE)&J6

I would like to copy a formula in a cell and then paste only the text of the formula, but I can't figure it out. Basically, I would like to avoid going into the cells and absolute referencing or hitting F2, then copying the text.

When I hit "Ctrl C" to copy the cell, then hit "Alt/E/S/F/Enter" to paste the formula, it is just like a regular copy/paste formula-wise in that the references move.

I am using vlookup to get a cell value from another sheet, but if the cell has "&" or "/" I need to substitue "&" and "/" with "and" so that the cell can be added later to a url.

i am using =VLOOKUP(a1,Sheet2!A1:W17968,6) to get the value of a1 in sheet 2 and return the value of column 6

this will return "Audio Cables & Leads" but i need it to say Audio Cables and Leads

I need the formula to also check and replace "/" with "and" as well so cables/wire will be Cables and wire

I'm wondering if it's possible to write a formala that if a certain condition is met, performs a formula referenced in another cell. For example: Column A contains a list of formulas. In column B is the condition, let's use Work Type as an example. The result (or the formula I need) would be in column C. So if the work type is "Type1", then the formula in the corresponding column C cell would perform the formula in cell A5. If the work type is "Type8", then the formula in the corresponding column C cell would perform the formula in cell A2.

Is this possible to do without VBA?

I have attached a sample of the spreadsheet. The cell/cells in question are f32:f36 on the first tab.

Question #1 how this formula works or what it does.

Question #2 Is when I enter the required information in cells a32:e32 it enters an N/A in cell f32. When I than click on cell F32 and than click on the formula bar and hit enter the information populates.

I have two questions:

1. Is there a way cells with formulas cannot be tampered even if they are not locked? So when I enter a data on a cell with formula, the formula won't be erased? The sample below shows that C1 and C2 has formulas but let's say I enter a value on C1, the formula should still stay? Is this possible?

A B C

1 5 10 =SUM(A1:B10)

2 2 4 =SUM(A2:B2)

2. Let's say I have a total of 125 (A1) and I need to get the answer (B1) where it has 5 with No. 3 on top (subscript) of 5? How to create a formula for this (I hope I make sense)?

In cell A1 exists data. In cell A2, I would like to test A1 to determine if A1 is a formula or a constant.

Examples:

=A9+3 would result "formula"

="1+3 would result "formula"

3 would result "constant"

'Blahblah would result "constant".

I know this is an easy one but I'm unsure why I can't easily modify a formula. The key event in this formula is "+190". Every time I change the value the formula no longer works. I've copied to another cell and the formula no longer works. My question is when you have a formula like this one if you have to modify how do you do it and keep the formula working.

I want to use the values in a range of cells in a sheet for a formula in another sheet. The problem is that these range of cells already has formulas and when I select these cells for use in another formula, the values doesn't get picked up and my formula doesn't work. for example -

cell L4 in sheet 1 has a formula - ='H:VK_2011_onwards1_ACC_BJS_SAA6

and it has a value - 34.76

cell L5 in sheet 1 has a formula - ='H:VK_2011_onwards1_ACC_BJS_SAA6

and it has a value - 47.09

Now I want to use this two cell to calculate an average in sheet 2. So if I use the formula =AVERAGE(Sheet1!L4:L5). I get no result.

I paste new data into a sheet of a monthly report I prepare. For this sheet, the # of data rows change (and is unpredictable) every month. I need the value inside a specific cell that dynamcially moves up and down based on the # of rows for that month (because it's below the rows of data).

So I made a formula to identify the exact cell # every month.

Example:

This month the exact cell is F255 in the "Refi" sheet.

So my formula in the "Summary" sheet cell A1 first finds the cell row # only (255) and since it's always column F, in B1 I have

VB:

="F" & (A1)

This outputs "F255" in B1, successfully identifying the target cell.

Now how do I write a formula in C1 to grab the value from whatever cell is named in B1. (For this month, the value in cell F255 from the "Refi" sheet)

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.

How to determine the correct formula for this requirement?

Assuming I have 2 individual excel files and an index excel file (in reality, there are more than hundreds of file). For index excel, once the user enter part number (eg. 1 or 2), the excel will look for the part number excel file and determine vlookup function.

The only problem I have here is I can not make the index file automatically add the part number shown on most left column into the required formula (replace the part number file section).

I tried use the indirect function but this require each file to be opened, which is not possible for actual use. I am looking for a function that can work in closed worksheet.
