Stop IF Function Returning FALSE

Oct 12, 2007

I have two columns A & B. If I enter "Short" into Col A, I want "Long" to automatically appear in Col B, and vice versa. This is the code I have created so far. =IF(C4="Short","Long",IF(C4="Long","Short",IF(C4="",""))). This works but when I paste the formula into all cells in Col B, I get "FALSE" showing up in every cell. How can I stop the "FALSE" from populating every cell in Col B while Col A remains blank?

Feb 23, 2009

Im using the below formula -

=SUMPRODUCT(--(Jan!D9:D999 > 0)--(Jan!Y9:Y999="FALSE"))
But it keeps returning the number of items in JanD9:D999 > 0 , when i want the number of items in column Y which contain "FALSE" if D is greater than 0.

Formula Returning Value N/A

Aug 14, 2013

It works I1 is blank and it works when F7:K7 has data and I1 is initialed. However, when I1 is initaled and there is no data in F7:K7 the cell reads "N/A". It should read "Approved with insufficient data".

=IF(ISBLANK(\$I\$1),"",IF(ISBLANK(F7&G7&H7&I7&J7&K7),"Approved with insufficient data",LOOKUP(99999999999,F7:K7)))

Stop Macro: Button To Hit Or Better Just Some Keys To Hit To Stop It Without Using The Ctrl+alt+del Which Closes Everything

Dec 13, 2006

my excel sheet runs through a lot of calculations, opens Flowmaster, a simulations program, passes on data, receivs data and so on. Is there any way to have a user input to stop the whole simulation. During the first tries I had a lot of break point in my debugger. But now I want to have a button to hit or better just some keys to hit to stop it without using the ctrl+alt+del which closes everything.

Aug 14, 2014

I am trying to stop a countdown of days when a value is entered into an adjacent cell. I have the following formula in E4:

=IF(NOW()<D4,DATEDIF(NOW(),D4,"D"),-DATEDIF(D4,NOW(),"D"))

I want this countdown to stop when I enter a date into F4 and that the number of days still shows within E4.

Formula Stop Displaying The Result

Apr 8, 2009

Workbook containing macros and formulas. The workbook will create worksheets automatically by macros and uses the same formulas in the worksheet. After creating the 10th worksheet these formulas stop displaying the result. They showed #N/A but in actual there supposed to have a values in each of the cells. By manually clicking the formula bar and pressing enter these values will appear.

Prevent/Stop #DIV/0! Error In Formula

Apr 21, 2009

The attached file contains hypothetical data on a basketball player's success from the free throw line. It lists the number of free throws attempted and the number made and then divides the number made by the number attempted to calculate the free throw percentage. However, I keep getting a # DIV/0! error in the games free throws weren't taken. How do I write the code so that when the error occurs, a message is displayed to the effect that no percentage can be reported because no free throws were attempted by checking the cell in column D? How do I use the IsError function to figure this out?

Stop Formula Viewing Without Protection

Dec 13, 2006

I am looking for the code to keep certain cells from being rested on, they can be clicked on but in order for you to view the formula in the cell you have to hold down the mouse button otherwise it will move you over to the cell next to it. I was using another worksheet a while ago and was trying to view the formulas but when I clicked on the cells holding them it would move me to the next cell, the only way I could view them was to hold the mouse button down as soon as I would release it it would be gone! I do not want to protect the sheet, if there is another way to hide formulas I am open to all ideas!

Stop #N/A! In Index Match Formula

Aug 7, 2007

I am working on a formula that, eventually, I would like to be inserted into cells using VBA's FormulaArray Range function. Unfortunately, in its present state, the formula is too long and clumsy to meet the 255 character limit on that function. While I know that I can easily shorten the current formula with simple adjustments, such as using named ranges, I still am forced to ask whether the design of the formula itself could not be improved.

The heart of the formula is an Index/Match combination which will search if any line on the 'Archive' sheet meets the three criteria on the line specified in the 'Data Log' sheet. If so, it returns the value from a particular column of the matching row on the archive sheet. If not, it returns N/A.

=INDEX(Archive!\$E\$1:\$E\$1999, MATCH(1, IF(Archive!\$B\$1:\$B\$1999='Data Log'!\$A2, IF(Archive!\$A\$1:\$A\$1999='Data Log'!\$C2, IF(Archive!\$D\$1:\$D\$1999=1,1))),0))

In an effort to circumvent this unsightly N/A result I have attempted to use the ISNA function paired with an IF statement. The idea is that if the result is N/A then "Pending" will display instead. Otherwise the result of the indexing formula will display. This approach is outlined below:

=IF(ISNA(index function), "pending", index function)

The problem, of course, is that the indexing formula is rather long, and, with this approach, I am required to put its entire contents in the formula twice. I would greatly appreciate any help in streamlining this formula. Remember, the final goal is simply to search the 'Archive' sheet for a single line meeting three criteria and return a value from a fourth column, or if not return "pending".

Stop Formula Auditing In 1 Workbook

Feb 15, 2008

I want to stop the formula auditing from working in one workbook without having to change settings in excel, is this possible?

Formula Returning Following Wednesday

May 8, 2014

I need a formula for cell P5 that returns the date for the following Wednesday from a date in cell I3?

For example, if in cell I3 01/05/2014 (through to 06/05/2014) is entered, cell P5 should show 07/05/2014

If the Wednesday date is in cell I3, cell P5 should should that same date (e.g. 07/05/2014 in cell I3 and P5).

IF Formula Returning Two Results?

Feb 21, 2014

I am using this formula. How can I get it to pull 'Sales Materials'!\$F17:\$F69' and display along with 'Sales Materials'!\$B\$17:\$B\$69 when my logical statement is true.

=INDEX('Sales Materials'!\$B\$17:\$F\$69,SMALL(IF('Sales Materials'!\$E\$17:\$E\$69="YES",ROW('Sales Materials'!\$B\$17:\$B\$69)-16),ROW(A1)),1)
I've tried using * but I think something is going on with "-16" which I was told to you use to account for headers.

Sumifs Formula Returning Zero

Sep 21, 2009

=AVERAGEIFS(\$D\$106:\$D\$2825,\$D\$106:\$D\$2825,">"&\$I117,\$D\$106:\$D\$2825,"<"&\$J117)

Returns = 0

But on a copy of the same worksheet, the same formula returns the correct value. Is there something wrong with my formula cotext?

Worksheet Formula Returning Nothing

Nov 18, 2008

the formulas in sheet 2 of the attached file, the formula from rows 27 is returning nothing, and I think I�m not getting the formula right. It may need a little correction.

Average Formula Returning DIV/0?

Mar 3, 2014

I am trying to average a data set where some rows at the moment are blank but will update at a later date, I am getting a div/0 error, the formula I am trying to use is

=IF(C23:C30="","",AVERAGE(C23:C30))

I thought this would look at the data and see if its blank leave it blank but if there are numbers there it would give me an average.

Why Countifs Formula Returning Zero

Jul 1, 2014

I have a Countifs formula that is returning a zero "0",

=COUNTIFS(\$B\$4:\$U\$4,\$A29,\$B\$10:\$U\$10,B\$18), and it should return a 1.

The manual calculation is turned on and I have tried the F9 and no change in the value returned.

Vlookup Formula Returning #N/A

Oct 5, 2007

I have the following Vlookup formula:

=VLOOKUP(G3,'Calculation for September 07'!C7:E1975,2,FALSE)

The formula is returning #N/A, but I see the lookup value in the table array.
What do I need to add to the formula to have the lookup value recognized?

Formula Returning Sum Of A Series

Nov 26, 2007

1) Not using a macro and combining relevant w/s functions, is there an intelligent way to return the value of:
SUM(n=n1 to n=n2) of (-1)^(n-1)*(n)^(n-2)/(n-1)!*X^n
to a cell containing the formula ??

2)Example:
n1 in cell A5:: 1 (integer variable)
n2 in cell A6:: 32 (integer variable)
X value in cell A7::1.00
Returned sum in cell A8:: 0.567143 ...

Offset Formula Not Returning Value

Feb 24, 2007

I am using the OFFSET formula (=OFFSET(\$A\$1,0,0,\$B\$1,1) and instructions (http://www.ozgrid.com/Excel/DynamicRanges.htm) I found on this site (which is great, by the way).

In the instructions on the site, it requires you to define a range for which the formula to apply. What I tried to do was skip naming the range, and simply using the OFFSET in various cells throughout the file. However, whenever I enter in a row [height] of greater than 1, the formula returns a #Value error. I want to use this offset on multiple data ranges, so naming all of them would be rather time consuming. Is there any way to skip this step?

Iserror Formula Still Returning Div#0

Apr 11, 2007

why is this formula

=IF(ISERROR(AVERAGE(H14:H16),"",(AVERAGE(H14:H16)

returning DIV#!0 if there is no data in the target cells, I thought the ISERROR was meant to stop that?

How To Create Formula For Stop-loss Logic

May 21, 2014

I'm trying to create an excel spreadsheet that keeps track of the highest value from a dynamic series. First a bit of background:

A manufacturer produces widgets made from gold. Therefore in order to quote manufacturing prices, they typically get a live gold price using Excel's web services and if the live price is higher that the last gold price they used, then they update their base price list for gold components. If the live price is lower than the last gold price they used, the last gold price does not change.

I'm trying to produce the above logic in Excel using:

Cell A1: [Excel data connection to pull live Gold price] - no problem here

Cell A2: dynamic 'price' that only updates if cell A1 is higher than cell A2

Cell A2 is where I'm getting stuck. I can't think of how to create a formula that updates cell A2 if cell A1 is higher.

Stop Displaying Formula - Display Result

Stop Macro From Changing Range In Formula

Jul 6, 2006

If I have a formula that uses cells that are currently blank - and then run a macro that puts data into those cells - the original formula cell ranges change - even if I put \$ within the ranges.

i.e.

Cell A1 has formula = sumproduct(e1:e10>10)
Currently cells E1:E10 are empty

Run the macro

E1:E10 now has data in.

But formula in cell A1 now reads something like =sumproduct(E13:E23>10) or could read =sumproduct(Ref#>10)

IF Formula In SUMPRODUCT

Dec 9, 2009

I'm trying to write a SUMPRODUCT formula (cell H2 in the attachment) that gives different outputs according to the value of another cell (H1), but the output values are incorrect. I suppose it's because the "else" value given in the IF formula won't be recognized as a formula but as a text.

SUMPRODUCT / AND Formula

Jul 11, 2007

I'm currently using a series of SUMPRODUCT formulas to populate a summary page from a large data source. This works fine in the most part, however one part of the summary page calls for a number of different criteria to be counted within the same data range. I'm currently using a work around by having three seperate SUMPRODUCT formulas on hidden rows, and then totaling their answers to give me the result I want, however I wondered if there was a cleaner and better way to do this? An exampel of the formula I am currently working with is below:

=SUMPRODUCT(('Filtered Data'!\$A\$2:\$A\$10000="Stock-Out")*('Filtered Data'!\$I\$2:\$I\$10000="Open")*('Filtered Data'!\$Q\$2:\$Q\$10000="A"))

The final part of the formula is what is causing me the problem - I would like it to look for and count occurances of "A" , "B" , & "C"
