Is there a way with the following formula to tell it that if value return is = to value of cell above then find return next value?

## Can I Make A Formula That Will Highlight A Cell

Sep 1, 2009

I have a large spreadsheet with many pieces of equipment in it. There are a few piece that I would like to highlight should thier computer license go out of date, or even better 30 days prior. I have a Feild with the Expire dates but it is at the end of the spreadsheet not in plain sight. Is there a way to make my Equipment description column highlight when the date in the other column reaches the current date (or 30 Days before). I have cut and pasted the part of the spreadsheet into a new file to make it easier to read and hid all the none important feilds.

## Formula To Make Cell Blank Instead Of Zero

Oct 29, 2009

I am looking for a formula that will work with my current formula, and check that cells a1 and b1 contains information. If they do contain info then the original formula should carry on as usual and leave the answer in cell c1. I also need it so when no information has been entered in cells A1 and B1, C1 will be blank instead of containing a zero.

This is the formula I have at the moment:
=IF(SUM(A1=0,B1>0),B1-A1,"No Charge?")

A B C
10.1810.82

## Make A Cell's Values Become A Formula

May 23, 2008

I have on my Sheet named "Data" in Cell K4

=CONCATENATE(L16,O25,L18,O25,K20,S25,N22)

The values of that cell become a formula.

I try to make a macro that pastes 'Data'!K4 into 'Data'!L3 and then have that formula functioning in cell 'Sheet1'!A31.

The problem is when I try to make a macro to do this it will always paste the values that were recorded during the macro rather than the unique formula that is created via cell 'Data'!K4 at the time.

Is there any way to have A31 actively using the values that are created with 'Data'!K4? at all times?

## Make A Formula Output A Blank Cell?

Mar 20, 2009

I want my formula to output a blank cell if the answer is 0. Ex. [B1=IF(A1=0, ???, A1)]. I want B1 = A1 if A1 is not 0. I want B1 to output a blank cell if A1 = 0.

## Make Part Of A Cell Bold Using A Formula??

May 29, 2009

I have a formula that combines the the text of various cells.

Is there a way to automatically make part of the cell Bold - so in this case I want the Cell B13 to appear in bold.

See formula below:

## Make Formula Pick Up Filename From A Different Cell...

Feb 9, 2010

I have a formula that looks like this : ='G:STOCKS[1001 Stock.xls]Matl%'!\$I\$32

There are hundreds of similar formulas, all referencing different cells in the same file. The “1001” bit refers to the date, and next month it will need to say “1002” to pick up the new month's file. I would like to hold the “1002” bit in a cell (say A1), so that at month end, I just change that one cell, and all the formulas will point to the new file, but I’m not sure how to work that into the formula.

## Possible To Make Sum Formula Based Off Dates Entered In Different Cell?

Jul 28, 2014

How would you write a formula where the sum depends on what dates you enter in A1 and B1?

Date cells C1 to C365

A1 start date
B1 end date

Example:
A1 = 1/1/14
B1 = 1/31/14

So cells C1 to C31 will be added.

"=sum(c1:offset(c1,(b1-a1),0))

This formula works, except if you enter a different starting dates, it just counts from c1.

## Make Formula Cell Appear Empty Until Data Is Entered

Jun 10, 2006

I'm creating a "universal-fluctuating" vendor inventory return worksheet for a auto parts store that consist of one criteria (cores, warranties, or N/R ) and will return one or two results of core cost and/or unit cost. This part of the task I have accomplished by using a drop down list for my criteria and my results will appear in two different columns using a Vlookup table. The problem is due to inventory fluctuating from cores and waranties on a month by month basis, vendor requiremnts differ for the number of units returned, and last make the boss happy on ink and papers supplies :D I was wondering if it is possible loop my code in a given column where it will move my code to the next row untill I reach a grand total?

## Excel 2007 :: Formula To Return First Cell Reference In Another Cell Formula

Oct 1, 2011

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.

## How To Make Vlookup Return 0

Jun 8, 2014

I have this formula "=VLOOKUP(B5,\$F\$254:\$G\$258,2,FALSE)" I want it to return a "0" when cell B5 is not populated. How could I do that? Right now it returns "#N/A" and messes up my math down the sheet..

## Make OR() Return 0 Or 1 Instead Of True And False

Sep 11, 2009

Hi. Is there a way to make OR() return 0 or 1 instead of true and false?

Or to convert true to 1 and false to 0?

## How Do You Make The IF, False Condition Return Nothing

Feb 21, 2008

Below is the forumula I am using. The problem is, when the condition is false, it puts a "0". This then effects the conditional formatting as well as the count function at the bottom. I need it to just leave the space alone when the If statement is "False"

=IF(G3="USD",IF(COUNTIF(Data!\$R:\$AH,\$J3),VLOOKUP(\$J3,Data!\$R:\$AH,2,FALSE),""),F3)

## Formula To Return Last But One Cell In Row

Mar 21, 2009

I currently use the following formula to find the last used cell in a row:

=LOOKUP(2,1/(\$6:\$6<>""),\$6:\$6)

which works fine but I have been trying to amend it so that it returns the last but one cell in a row. Have tried using it with Offset but without success.

Have found other solutions to finding to the last cell in a row albeit that a number of them do not seem to work with my project and likewise none of them seemed to allow customisation of any sort.

## 0/0 Formula - Return 100% In Next Cell

Dec 17, 2008

I need to return 100% in a cell for cells B2/A2. If B2 = 0, and A2= 0, I want the result to be 100% as a goal attainment returning 100% in C2.
How do I do this? I get a DIV error as usual.

## If Then Formula: Return The Value Of The Cell

Apr 29, 2006

Here is the formula I used to return the value of the cell.

=+((L2-O2)/250)-0.5

It return negative numbers so I used the If statement below to return 0 for any negative number and then I want it to return the value of the cell if the number is not negative. How do I finish the balance of the if statement to make that happen?

=IF(P2<1,"0",)

## Formula To Return Value In A Cell Relative To Another Linked Cell?

May 2, 2014

The problem I am trying to solve is to have a cell return a cell value based on another linked cell. The cells I want to link are in separate tabs or could be another workbook.

For example if cell A5 in sheet2 is linked to A20 in sheet1...A5 has formula(=Sheet1!A20). I want the next cell B5 to look at A5 and return the value of cell Sheet1!D18.

So in essence I want the second cell to look at the first cell and return a value that is 3 columns over and 2 rows up.

## Return The Value In The Same Sheet As The Formula From Cell?

Jun 5, 2014

I want to develop on the formula I have below to return the value in the same sheet as the formula from Cell AA2 if the result of the formula below returns #N/A

=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(B2,Analyst!\$J:\$K,2,FALSE)), VLOOKUP(AP2,Analyst!\$B:\$C,2,0),VLOOKUP('IE STORES AGING 06-05-2014'!B2,Analyst!J:K,2,FALSE))

## Return The Date In The Cell Containing The Formula

Sep 7, 2009

the last date input into a range covering multiple columns and return the date in the cell containing the formula):

{=index(a9:n9,1,max(if(cell("format",a9:n9)="D4",column(a9:n9)))-column(a9)+1)}

My column headings use this pattern:

Column A: Date
Column B: Amount
Column C: Date
Column D: Amount
Column E: Date
Column F: Amount

and so on.

When I use the above formula, I end up with data from the last amount column instead of the last date column.

## Return The Relative Formula Of Another Cell

Sep 21, 2009

I currently have a list of totals that i want to easily be able to change the cells that make up this total.

I have been trying to set up one cell that contains the formula and then the remaining totals below are linked to this cell. Thus I change the formula in the top cell all the other totals also change.

## Formula To Return Cell Value At 28 Row Jumps

Feb 23, 2012

In column A in sheet 1 I have a list of ID (starting in cell A2), the Id's are repeated and a new Id first appears in cell A30, repaeting the pattern the next new Id is in cell A58. This goes on in the pattern to around cell 44,000. All I want to do is write a formula in another sheet that enables me to have the cell value of A2 on the new sheet and in the next row of the new sheet to have the value of A30 and so on, until I have all the id's individually displayed on the new sheet.

After that I have data from the rest of the row (A2,B2,C2 etc) of sheet 1 in the following cells of the new sheet. After that I'm transposing data from column H of sheet 1 so it appears in the row of the new sheet against the ID's.

Sheet 1
Column headers> (A)Patient name, (B)number, (C)gender, (D)DOB, (E)Sample ID, (F)Hospital, (G)blood test parameter,

(H)Result Row 2 columns A to F repeate to Row 29 then next patient details list. These I want as Row 2 columns A to F in new sheet then the results transpose from column H sheet 1 to new sheet row 2 columns H to AI. (the results I have working with transpose)

## Formula To Return Zero If Cell Is Blank?

May 8, 2012

I have a column of imported data like this, with scattered blank cells:

Rd Frnt200634350464300399636350

I am doing a multiple regression where the above are independent variables. I usually have hundreds of variables in a column like this. Because each cell must have a value in it (the regression won't accept blanks), rather than manually fill the blank cells with a 0, I set up an adjacent column to convert the blanks to a 0 and regress off that column. But every formula I try still produces a blank in that adjacent column. I have tried things like: =IF(A1="",0,A1) but they do not work. I always get a blank in the adjacent column when the original cell is blank. Can't get a 0 in there.

## Return Selected Cell Name Formula

Jan 13, 2007

Is there a formula that will return in A1 the selected cell name in range B1:B10
example : If I click in B2 I will read in A1 the word "B2"

Easy to do with a message box but a formula?
I do not want the user to have to accept macros when he or she opens the file

Edit: If easier I could type in the cells their name and have the formula in A1 return the selected cell's "VALUE"

example In B1 I would type B1 etc...

## To Return A Blank Cell In A Formula

Mar 4, 2010

i have IF sentence that returns either a number or a blank cell (tried using "") in a colum. This data is entered in a chart.

My problem is that that excel dont recognise the "" as a blank cell in my chart.

Is there a way to do this? i could maybe use VBA to make my own function that clear.contents if the cell value is smaler than say 1?

## Return A Cell Formula's Parameters

May 23, 2006

i need to essentially find and replace udf's and the complication is rearranging the parameters in the udf's into a new formula structure.

so my question, is there an easy way to extract a parameter (or all parameters) from a function?

for example, if you had = SUM(A1,A2,A3:A6) you would return 'A1' as the first parameter, 'A2' as the second and 'A3:A6' as the third.

Obviously it gets complicated when you nest functions such as =SUM(IF(A2=1,0,A1),A3) etc and the if() function would be parameter 1.

## Formula To Return Values In A Dynamic Cell

Oct 21, 2009

I basically have this worksheet which has Cell D3 Being Dynamic. It puts the lowest cost supplier from columns H:W. If i change the prices in H:W it will bring up the lowest cost supplier in D3. Once D3 is chosen i want it to self populate F3 and G3 based off of what is in D3. This data should be pulled off from what is in the H:W columnns corresponding to the supplier in D3.

## Return True/False If Cell Contains Formula

Apr 7, 2009

Is there a formula or VB code like the =TYPE() function that will return whether a cell contains a FORMULA? Here's the issue:

I'm writing a macro to update 10,000 sheets. Each sheet has a column that I'm updating with a new formula. Some of these formulas have been previously overwritten with a random number that would delete the formula from the cell. I have to leave the overwritten values where there is no formula, and replace the values of the formulas where they are still intact. I assume that if I can identify whether there is a formula in the cell or not, I can choose that cell to skip or update.

## Using IF(OR And IF(ISERROR In Same Formula: Return A Blank Cell

Jul 8, 2009

I am trying to fix the below formula =IF(OR(ISERROR((F26-E26)/F26),((F26-E26)/F26)=1),"",(F26-E26)/F26). If I get an error from the formula I want it to return a blank cell. If I get 1 as the answer to the formula I'd like it to return a blank cell. This formula only works if the result is 1 but won't return a blank cell if the answer is an error.

## Formula To Return Cell That First Meets Certain Criteria?

Mar 5, 2014

Say I have a column of cells filled with numbers that are ascending. What I would like to do is to pick out the first cell that meets my condition. For instance, these cells contain irrational numbers that increase from 0 to 100. I would like a formula to pick out the first cell that exceeds 10.2, and to return the row number of that cell.

In the case of descending numbers, if I would like to pick out the first cell that goes below 10.2, would the formula be the same?
