How To Make A Cell Display Text Difference Between Two Cells

Aug 30, 2013

Is there a way to make a cell display the text difference between two cells?

For example of cell E2 reads "Thank Goodness it is Friday" and cell F2 reads "Thank Goodness" can I put a formula in H2 that will show the text that is in E2 but not F2 ( "it is Friday")?

Make Text Flow Into Adjacent Cell Without Merging Cells Or Wrapping Text?

Jul 19, 2014

I have some text in a cell, which is longer than the width that I am going to make that cell. When I don't wrap the text, it cuts it off at the end of the cell.

Since each column represents a day in a calendar, it would be incorrect to merge the two cells, but I don't want the text hidden, since I need to print the final product.

It is non-numeric text, and i've pasted --> values to remove formula issues.

Auto-populate Cells To Display Text From Another Cell Without Cutting Off Text?

Sep 2, 2013

I am trying to auto-populate text in cells in area A, based on data I enter into other cells in area B. I want the area A cells to be for display only, as all editing will be done in area B. The problem is: how do I do this such that the text I write does not get cut off if is longer than the column width? See the attached document for a clear example and description of what I am trying to do...

Make Multiple Cells Display Same Value?

Jul 31, 2014

I've recently discovered that I enjoy making Excel spreadsheets as a tool to solve recreational puzzles. Mostly variations on crosswords and such. Honestly it probably takes much longer to organize everything into a sheet than it would to just solve on paper, but I seem to enjoy it this way more.

The Actual Question (for TL;DR Types):

Anyway, I am trying to find a way so that a group of cells can all copy the value of the other cells in the group, regardless of which cell the value is entered into. So I don't want there to be one "master cell" that all the cells are linked to. I want them all linked to each other.

Specifically, right now I am making a spreadsheet for a non-traditional style crossword puzzle. My intention was to make fields for the answers to each clue, with individual cells for each letter, as well as the crossword grid itself. Then I would link the cell in the clue answer to the cell in the grid, so that when the answer was filled it, it would be inserted in the proper place. But since this is a crossword, there is more than one clue with a letter that links to each cell. I could make it so that the cell in the crossword grid is the "master" and make the other two equal to it, but I would much rather be able to enter the letter into any of the three cells and have all three fill automatically.

I realize I am making this way more difficult than it really needs to be, but that is kind of what I enjoy about it. Finding creative ways to make the puzzles fit into a spreadsheet and making them more streamlined.

How To Make Cell Display (24:00) And Treat It As 24 Hrs

Mar 9, 2012

I have a formula in a cell....let's say column B.

It basically says "If column A is empty,then = 24:00, otherwise = column A".

It works fine and displays as 24:00 in the proper cells, but if you try to add all the 24:00 together it doesn't work. I guess the simple question is, how do I hard code a proper time value from an If Statement.

e.g. =IF(A1="",24:00,A1)

I am running a text comparison between customer names in 2 systems and although I can identify where they dont match I would like a bit more information as to what the differences may be:

See below sample data - 1 system may have Mr/Ms and middle initials whereas the other simply has the name is it possible to write a formula that will look at the cell and when it does not match identify the extra characters. Or if it totally doesnt match then just state incorrect.

Calculating The Difference Between Cells, But Using The Value Of Another Cell If The

Jun 2, 2009

I have the following on a spreadsheet that keeps track of when student work is handed in and calculates how many days late it is so a penalty mark can be given.

A1= User entered value : a fixed submission date that a piece of work is due to be handed in on.
A2 = User entered value : The date entered if work is handed in on time or early
A3 = User entered value : The date the work was handed in if late
A4 = User entered value : The date the piece of work is due to be handed in if an extension has been granted
A5 = Calculated value : How many days late a piece of work is

Essentially I want the calculation in A5 to reflect how many days late a piece of work is. SUM(A3-A1) would do this of course. If the work is early or on time, A2 is ignored.

Sometimes however students have permission to hand work in late, in which case another calculation is needed to work out how many (if any) days over their extension date (A4) their work is. How do I combine these two calculations into the same cell, so that if A3 is empty it checks A4 to see if the student has an extension date and then returns a 'days late' value if applicable?

Display Popup When Percentage Difference Reached

Feb 16, 2008

I have an excel file that linked to an external feed that receives stock prices in real time. on the file i have the stock name, the price paid and the current price. I would like to have a popup that shows up whenever a stock price has a 15% or higher return. I would like the popup to show the stock name. I realise that conditional formatting would highlight whatever is over 15%, but the workbook has multiple worksheets and I would like it to popup even when i am on another worksheet.

Enclosed is a copy of the file (the actual file has many more sheets) : john.zip

Display Result Based On Time Difference

Feb 15, 2008

I want to make a formula based on 2 times ex: 10:07:00 and 10:09:00. This formula should display "intime" if the diference between both is under 20 minutes, "outime" if the diference is above 20 minutes and it should display "error" if the time is under 0 minutes (this will only happen when someone makes a mistake typing in the time. For example 10:37:00 and 10:36:00)

Conditional Formatting For Blank Cells To Display Custom Text

Feb 17, 2012

I have a range of cells with numeric values or blanks. I set up a Conditional Formatting rule with this range selected: New Rule > Format only cells that contain > Format only cells with: Blanks; then I set the formatting to a light green fill and on the Number tab > Category = Custom > Type: "blank"

The blank fields get the light green fill, but no text; that is, the value displayed is still blank.

I go back to edit the CF rule and change Blanks to No Blanks. The results are what I expect: the cells with numbers display the text blank and have a green fill; the blank cells have no fill (white).

This is my testing criteria. I eventually want the empty cells to display 0 (zero). I tried setting Custom > Type: 0 (the number placeholder zero) and Type: "0" (literally the number zero), and neither works.

I have tried this with Format only cells with Cell Value equal to [the address of a blank cell].

I tried to set the value as "" but kept getting =""""; and ="" became ="=""" ???

I have tried this with Use a Formula... using the len()=0, isblank(), and other approaches, all with the same results.

I also made sure the option [x] Show a zero in cells that have a zero value is checked.

With all approaches to identifying the blank cells, they ARE obviously being recognized as blank values: the fill color is being applied to the right cells; and when Not Blank is the criterion (or a negation of a formula), the blank ones are not formatted. But blank cells will not display the text as defined in the Custom Formatting.

And this isn't an issue of "If the cell displays 'blank' it's no longer blank, so the rule doesn't apply" - HERE'S WHY: I set up a second CF rule that sets the Font to red when the value is greater than zero and had this CF rule follow the CF rule for No Blanks (the test above that works). Cells with positive numbers displayed blank in red, cells with zeros or negative numbers displayed blank in black. This clarified that the actual value of the cell is being evaluated, not the displayed value after Custom formatting is applied.
