Generating Text For Cells Based On Results Of Formula?

Aug 14, 2013

So basically I have a spreadsheet that tracks if a patient has turned in there required paperwork within the last 6 months and then changes the cell to white and lets me know how many days they have left until they are due to turn this paperwork in again. Then if it has expired I have a condition format change the cell to Red but I would like to add in the text EXPIRED to the cell. lastly I have Cells that have no data in them gray and I would like to add in red text saying No Paperwork.

I'm hoping this will be my last build of this spreadsheet so I can go ahead and start applying it to the real workbook [URL]

Generating A List Of The Five Most Common Responses (Text-Based Mode)

Sep 11, 2009

I would like to generate a dynamic list of the top five most common text responses in a range. For simplicity sake, let's assume that the range spans cells A1 to A20, and the list is generated in cells B1 to B5. So, essentially, I am seeking five separate formulas. One to calculate the most common text element, one to calculate the second most common text element, one to calculate the third most common text element and so forth.

I am currently working with the two formulas below but finding it incredibly difficult to merge them into a working format.

Formula for finding second most common number:
=MODE(IF(IF(A1:A20"",A1:A20)MODE(IF(A1:A20"",A1:A20)
),IF(A1:A20"",A1:A20),""))

Formula for finding most common text element:
=INDEX(A1:A20,MODE(IF(ISTEXT(A1:A20
),MATCH(A1:A20,A1:A20,0))))

Generating Urls In Spreadsheet Based On Matching Cells.

Mar 3, 2009

I am trying to create a spreadsheet for an online gift registry. They require that the spreadsheet have the photo's url's in a column. I already have the spreadsheet filled with my data. In the spreadsheet, Column D is filled with unique numbers, some with parenthesis, (ex. 52011, 52011(2), 34132, etc.)

I also have a folder full of images that are similarly formatted as such
"...imagesrand_name_52011.jpg". (They will be moved eventually to a webserver.) Each number in the column may or may not have a corresponding image. And the images may or may not have a corresponding number in the spreadsheet. Is there a way to generate a url automatically in a column that corresponds to the image with the matching number? And if it doesn't, just leave it blank?

Looping Macro Generating Unwanted Results.

Jan 27, 2009

I have a spreadsheet with multiple departments on it set out in no particular order, (just as they are added) and this sheet needs to stay like that as a record of when added.

The problem I am having is that I need to generate a bordered blank Weekly, Monthly or 52 week planner for what ever department needs it on a different sheet so it may be printed. This will contain that departments items but leave the days/weeks blank for them to fill out.

As an example I use the code below to loop through the original sheet and generate a 52 Week Planner if the criteia matches.

Change Formula To The Results Of The Formula For Cells That Have Results

May 9, 2006

I have a range that has formulas that are based on other fcells outside the range.

What I want to do is, if the cell has a value to remove the formula and paste the results. If the filed is blank (no results from the formula) to leave the formula in place.

There could be a marco to run when this process is needed.

Conditional Formatting Formula Based On Text In Two Cells?

Jan 8, 2014

I need a formula for conditional formatting which highlights a row if A has the text "Ex" and B has "Paid".

Formula That Resizes Text Box Based On Data In Two Cells?

Jan 17, 2013

What type of formula would resize a text box based on the input of two cells? Here's what I'm trying to accomplish:

A1 - width (in inches)
A2 - height (in inches)

Converts the text box to that height & width.

This is for a sign request form I am creating that would give our requestors the ability to see the size layout of their sign and then input their text to match what they're looking for.

Changing Order Of Text Based On Results?

Oct 7, 2013

I've attached a spreadsheet. I want the order of the sentence to change based on the numbers and whether they are positive or negative. Below are more details and the spreadsheet has numbers.

"Total expense for September was 8 higher (lower) than prior year, driven by a higher (lower) claims expense and admin expense"

This might be hard to explain: For the second part (starting from "driven by", I would like the variable that explains more of the positive or negative variance (in the example, claims) to come first.

Here is a different example

Total expense for September was 6 lower than prior year, driven by a lower admin expense (claims is not included because it is higher)

Return Text Results Based On 2 Criterion

Oct 6, 2008

I am attempting to create a formula that will, return text results based on 2 criterion.

This is what my sheet looks like

Name Job Full Time / Partime
Bob Admin Full Time
Barry Accounts Part Time
Chris Claims Full Time
Emma Claims Full Time

The formula I have for this is {=INDEX(A1:A4,MATCH(1,(((B1:B4)="Claims")*((C1:C4)="Full Time")),0))}

Which is fine and returns the name Chris, however as you can see from above, Emma also meets the criteria given however, I cannot get Emma to appear also. Is it possible to display more than one entry in a cell/s based on this formula, or am I missing something.

I would use a pivot table to do this, however I need the sheet to be completely automated.

Formula To Calculate Percentage Based On Number And Text In Cells

May 14, 2014

I have a form in work which acts as a tick sheet for tasks complete on a construction site. When a task is complete I copy & paste from a key of dates i.e. week ending 11.05.15, this allows me to see what week a task was complete.

Generally I only marked off tasks which were 100% complete but my manager wants me to enter the % of the task complete also, i.e. 80% in the box.

So my question is how can I have the formula assume that any box with a date & shading is 100% and any cell with a number i.e. 80 is only 80% complete. I need it to monitor around 150 cells and give me the overall % complete based on what i have discussed.

Conditional Formula Based On Another Cells / Rows Text / Number?

Jan 25, 2013

I am wondering if I could have a formula be used against a certain row/cell containing a certain "phrase" or "number" for instance

I want E1 to read something like this = (row containing item "FF32105") (the given row from the previous statement) ( the input column ex. B) (the input value ex. *6)

Essential I want to be able to copy and past a sales forecast and have the formulas automatically (listed below the pasted forecast) calculate purchase needs. The issue is that if our forecast one month has a certain item and then the next does not then they will end up on different lines after the copy/paste. We have over 500 items so a manual adjustment would be time consuming..

Is there a possible way for the formulas to "find" the correct line to start calculating data?

Putting Text At The End Of Formula Results

Jan 8, 2010

I'm trying to enter relatively simple drug calculation formulas in Excel where the result is appended with the proper units to administer. For example, if I'm calculating for units of regular insulin with a formula such as:

=0.75*f2

I'd like the cell to make the above calculation, and append it with "Units Reg Insulin" or something similar. Thus far, I've just been putting the units as text in adjacent cells but the result looks a bit messy.

Is this possible? I'm using Excel 2007 and the Help index does not seem to offer much guidance about this.

Macro Putting In The Formula As Text Instead Of Results

May 28, 2008

My macro contains a VLookup formula that is giving me the text of the formula instead of the results. A portion of the macro is, as follows:

Sheets("Survey Results").Select
Range("c1").Value = "Resolving Group"
Range("c2").Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=VLOOKUP(RC[-1],'Survey Invitation'!C[-2]:C[-1],2,FALSE)"
Range("C2").Select
Selection.AutoFill Destination:=Range("C2:C900"), Type:=xlFillDefault
Range("C2:C900").Select
Range("C2").Select

The VLookup statement appears in place of the result when the macro is run. This is Excel 2007 and it runs to the end without error.

Formula To Return Results Based On 2 Parameters?

Jul 5, 2013

1) I have an invoice form, and need to create a formula that will allow me to calculate a discount IF an item number begins with "C" or "CE".

Example: Item # is in cell F12. (may or may not begin with "C" or "CE")

Item price is in cell J12.

Extended price (qty x price) is in cell K12.

In L12, I need to calculate a discount (from % in fixed cell L9) on the figure in K12 - based on whether or not the Item # in F12 begins with a C or CE.

If it does not begin with C or CE, then L12 needs to equal 100% of K12.

(The 2 parameters I referred to in the title were:

C, followed by a number
CE followed by a number )

2) The biggest part of the dilemma is that the person using this spreadsheet is totally unfamiliar with Excel formulas, spreadsheets in general, and has to send this finished product to a client each week. So I need this to be as simple as possible - which seems to me to be a formula (that can be copied to insert rows, etc. if necessary).

Selecting All Visible Text (and Results Of A Formula) On A Page?

Nov 9, 2007

I know you can select all cells with a formula.

I know you can select all cells with constants

What about selecting all visible text (and results of a formula) on a page?

Using If Statement To Produce Results Based On 2 Cells

Nov 25, 2011

I was trying to use an if statement to produce results based on 2 cells. The number in the 1st cell can be the number 1 to 5, but each number has critera with it. Say the cell is A1 and i enter the number 1. Then i want to check the value of Cell A5, if this is less than 40 then the cell A10 should read 250 and if A5 was over 40 then it should read 285. struggled to get a formula properly to work.

Here are the values for each number: A1 = 1 with cell A5

Mega Formula To Calculate Results Based On Several Conditions

Aug 25, 2009

I have in column A a list of investment fund names. In columns B to D is respectively for each fund its Market Value, the Rate of Return and the Rank (1, 2, 3 or 4). I am trying to create a formula that will calculate the market value-weighted rate of return for each ranking.

For example, the 3 funds that rank first have market value weights of 10%, 12% and 13%, and rates of return of 1%, -3% and 5%. The total market-value weighted return for the top-ranked funds would therefore be 0.39% (i.e. 0.10*0.01-0.12*0.03+0.13*0.05)

The formula would first need to look in the ranking column to identify those funds with a particular rank (column D), then calculate their weights by dividing their market value by the total market value of all funds (column B), and finally multiplying these weights by the rate of return (column C), before summing the results to say, for example, that the total market-value weighted return for the top-ranked funds is 0.39%

Copy Rows From One Sheet To Another Based On Formula Results

Feb 7, 2014

I have a report that is run weekly that shows items that have been returned over the last 3 months. The report shows the original date of purchase and the return date, but not the number of days since the purchase and the return. I need to have any items that were returned over 15 days go to a new sheet and display just those rows of information.

Execute Formula Based On Index Match Results?

Oct 21, 2012

I have a table with Dynamic Headings and Expanding rows, that's setup like below: The formula in the Qty column would produce a "0", if the result of the Index Match has a blank. For example in a different table the reference cell would have "Heading3". Therefore the results in the Qty column would be like example below. The products in the table below are like 0's and 1's to trigger the formula to calculate with the variables, or give a zero. If the Index Match found "Heading2" the results would be based on cells under "Heading2 Column" etc.

y
z

Cells Display Formula, Not The Results Of The Formula

May 29, 2009

To get cell to display results of formula I must edit (F2) and hit enter. Is there an easy way to do this in bulk rather than editing and hitting enter on hundreds of cells?

Example of formula:
=IF(COUNTBLANK(K2)=1,"",CONCATENATE("*** ",K1,": ",K2," "))

Identifying Cells From The Results Of An Array Formula

Oct 12, 2006

I have a long list (>1000) of increasing temperatures in column A. I use an array formula, {=MAX(A3:A1029-A2:A1028)} to find the largest change between two successive values. What I need to do then is obtain the two values that give rise to that difference (for instance, they might be in A678 and A679). I can't figure out a formula for this.

I can manage it if I insert a "difference" column in B, and use:

=INDEX(\$A\$2:\$B\$1029,MATCH(MAX(\$B\$2:\$B\$1029),\$B\$2:\$B\$1029,0)-1,1)
=INDEX(\$A\$2:\$B\$1029,MATCH(MAX(\$B\$2:\$B\$1029),\$B\$2:\$B\$1029,0),1)

but I'd rather keep the number of columns to a minimum.

List Unique Entries And Total Cells Based On The Results

Jun 10, 2008

Basically from Sheet OEE V20:V500 I have a list of problems being selected from a drop down list validation (which users can add to the list for new problems). Along side these "problems" in Sheet OEE U20:U500 I have a number which represents the number of minutes the problem caused them. Some cells in both these columns will however be empty if there was no problem occour. But wherever there is a problem selected, there will be a number alongside it, there will never be one without the other.

What I want to do is look down Sheet OEE V20:V500 and get two lots of information -

The unique problem names (no duplicates of the same problem) in Sheet Reports A1:A100 for example (I may change the range of this).
The number of occurances of each of the problems it lists in Sheets Reports B1:B100.
Count up the total number of minutes of each problem. So for every occurance of "Paper problem" there will be a unique number in Column U in the same row as the problem and place this in Sheet Reports C1:C100.

I would ideally like to have this as VB code as I am going to tie it into a command button which formats and prints my report page.

I have found various bits of code dotted about the forums for counting unique cell entries but they always seem to produce a list with lots of blank rows (I would like a list one after another without blank rows all over the place) and I'm really struggling to figure out how to make it count up the numbers in the adjacent cell of each entry it sees.

Just in case the list of problems for the cell validation in Sheet OEE V20:V500 is found in Sheet OEE AQ16 downwards.

Formula Not Adding Correctly, Calculate The Results Based Off Of What Is Shown In The Cell

Apr 9, 2009

Basically a cell might have a number with 3 decimal places

For Example 90.554, and i will format the cell two 2 decimal places. But when i use those cells which are formated to 2 decimal places in a formula it produces results based of all the decimal places in that cell.

Is there a way for the formula to only calculate the results based off of what is shown in the cell? . This is messing up our accounting area by alot of dollars since we sell many items.

I included an example of what i mean in this excel file which should clear up any confusion.

Excel 2010 :: Comparing Cells And Displaying Text Dependent On The Results?

Aug 15, 2012

I have attached a work book example of what i am trying to do.

Column D is what i originally did in terms of the formula and now i have to have a column display text dependant on what is in column A to C.

I was trying this formula =IF(b2>a2,"Start Target Missed",IF(c2="","Failed","Tracking")) However if this isnt working.

Is there anything i can do to change this?

Generating Random Outcomes Based On Probability

Feb 10, 2009

Can anyone help, I'm trying to create some test data, eg 1000 rows in excel. In each cell a formula (?) returns some text such as Dog, Cat or Rabbit based on the probability Dog=0.5, Cat=0.3, Rabbit=0.2

I've come up with a messy solution of generating a random number between 1-100 and then using a lookup table where 1-50 = dog etc... it works but is long winded and difficult for other people to follow.

Generating Report Based On Date Range?

Aug 5, 2010

I am looking for code that can generate the report that a user selects.

For example the user clicks reports on the userform. The report userform opens up. The user checks the monthly report button and enters the last day of the month he wishes the report to be for. i.e 7/31/2010 and then clicks generate report. when executed excel creates a new workbook and creates two sheets. the first looks exactly like the master data sheet from the original worksheet but of course with the specified data. the second sheet will populate a summary of the data. I will address that after i figure out how to get the first sheet compiled.

Generating Random Numbers Based On Probability

Mar 8, 2007

1. I need to randomly generate either a 1, 6 or 12 every time I hit calculate (i.e. F9).

2. I want to specify the probablility of each result. For example, I want 12 to be the result 80% of the time, and 6 and 1 to be the result 10% of the time.

Generating Text File In Certain Format And CSV From Excel Worksheet Using VBA

Mar 4, 2014

The attached file "Temp.xlsm" has been provided to me. I need to generate two files from it - 1) csv 2) a text file in a certain format. It should basically look liked the attached file "InFile.txt" which is an input file for a modelling tool. The arrays and struct strings need to be within brackets and it only contains inputs. Outputs don't need to be generated.

With the code in "Temp.xlsm" so far I have been able to generate attached file "Temp.txt". The only missing bit is the formatting of arrays and structures.

Basically for row7 in "temp.xls" , if it is

Xls - In
Struct_Start - (
Array_Start - (
Array_and_Struct_Start - ((
Struct_End - )
Array_End - )
Array_and_Struct_End - ))

and members within these need to be separated by commas.

A Formula To Reference Another Page And Skip Cells To Get To Desired Results?

May 14, 2014

I am trying to find a formula that will allow me to reference another page in my spread sheet. In my scenario the row I am referencing has 5 consectutive numbers after the reference point I would use for a vlookup. These numbers are all zeros except for one number in each row which will be a positive number greater than zero. I want my formula to check the first cell in the row, if it is not a zero it will show that number, but if this cell contains 0, then it moves over to the next cell. If all the cells in the row have a zero, then i just want zero to appear on my summary sheet. I tried to do a vlookup with an IF function, but I couldn't get it to work. I have attached a sample of what the spreadsheet looks like.Example doc.xlsx
