# Finding Sums Of Different Numbers Of Cells

Jun 21, 2006

I am building an inventory simulation and have run into a problem. What i want is, when i change a number in cell H4, i want excel to find the sum of C25 and the cells "H4" up. If H4 is 5 then i need the sum of C20:C25...if H4 is 10 i need C15:C25. Does anyone have any thoughts on how to do this? I have attached a sample sheet to make it more clear.

## Selective Sums: Trying To Total Different Colored Cells???

## Finding Name Then Finding Reoccurring Numbers

Feb 25, 2014

I have been trying to write two formulas in one cell. I have been able to write them both separately but have been unable to join them both together. What I am trying to do if first search name them how many reoccurring numbers appear. I have provided an example below

a b c d

1 Tom 333
2 Sam 22
3 Sam 22
4 John 5
5 Sam 22
6 Sam 1
7 Tom 3
8 Tom 333

So the answer would be

Tom = 2
Sam = 2
John = 1

## Count The Sums Of Repetitive Cells And Then Remove The Duplicates?

Mar 5, 2009

I've got the following table (see attachment). In a column A there're the articles and some of them appear several times. In column B there's the quantity. The goal is to get in column C the sum of quantities in column B for the repetitive articles in column A and then delete the repetitive articles.

so the table should look like:
3RD125070442H 30
3RE071870493H 4
3RI100009624T 15

in excel 2007 I found only the function to remove the duplicate cells but I need to get the sums before removing them and have no clue how to that.

## A Formula That Searches A Range And Gives The Sums Of The Adjacent Cells!??

Jun 23, 2009

I am looking for a formula that searches a range of data and then returns the sum of the numeric values in the adjacent cells. I have a calendar style spreadsheet with 2 columns for each day. In the first column it has a list of names and the second column a number.

I would like a cell to return the sum of the numeric values next to each name. All the names are entered into the columns randomly and are unorganised. The same name will appear multiple times in the range and have different numbers next to it each time. I am currently using (for example) =COUNTIF(H6:AL14,"bob") to tally up the number of "bobs" but really what i want to do is find a formula that in plain english does:

Search a range of columns and where cell = "bob" take the value of the adjacent cell (to the right) and total them up!

i have attached an image - i hope it makes sense what i'm trying to do - i would like Q3 to total up the numbers to the right of all "bobs" across all the days - so it should return 42

## Finding Common (repeated) Numbers In Columns Of Numbers

Mar 21, 2008

I work for a charity and I have to cancel the donations of people whose credit card donations have been declined in three consecutive months.

If in Column A I have a list of donor IDs whose credit cards were declined in Jan 2008, in Column B I have a list of donor IDs whose credit cards were declined in Feb 2008 and in Column C I have a list of donor IDs whose credit cards were declined in Mar 2008, is there a way of showing in a fourth column which donor IDs were common (repeated) in Columns A, B and C? I would have a title for each column in A1, B1 and C1, and also the column where the repeated donor IDs would be displayed.

## Finding A Sum Of Two Numbers

Nov 16, 2012

Is there a function in excel that can look at an array of values and find the two values that equal a number.

I have a number 159. I have an array of 100 numbers but only two of them added together can equal 159. Rather than sort through every possible combination is there a function in excel that can do that?

## Finding The Sum Within A Range Of Numbers

Dec 30, 2008

So I have multiple columns of numerical data,

I have to find the sum of all numbers between 10 and 40 within a column, NOT cell 10 to 40 but the actual number 10 and 40.

How do I do that?

Is it SUMIF? I cannt seem to grasp this.

## Finding A Value Between Two Given Numbers In One Cell

Mar 29, 2009

I have another post here on this forum, but I'm afaid the formula is getting so complex that nobody is able to fully understand what I want. Instead I want to find a value between two numbers and add it to some IF sentences. It will do what I want, even if it's not that elegant.

I've looked at the SUMIF function but it did not do exactly what I wanted. It finds a number or adds numbers only if they are in range it seems.

What I want is the following:
Return sum between 500 and 1000 in one cell.

## Finding 2 Numbers In A Field

Jan 14, 2013

Create a form where i would enter 2 numbers into 2 seperate boxes, and those numbers would be highlighted/bolded/shown in red from a list of 30 rows of numbers x 20 numbers in each row. these 2 numbers will not be the same all the time, below is just for an example

ie. number: ... (5) number: ... (59)

1 28 19 20 5 9 80 72 12 38 50 53 59 83 ...
8 4 38 29 11 39 27 38 3 49 59 80 13 12 49 4 5 ...
and so on....
....

So picture something like that, but with 30 rows of numbers x 20 numbers in each row.

## Finding What Numbers Are In One Column But Not The Other

Nov 10, 2009

I have a large list of numbers in two columns. I need to know what numbers are in column A but don't appear in column B. For example if the numbers are 1 2 and 3 in column A but column B only has 1 and 2 I need to know that 3 is missing.

the only thing I can think of is doing =IF(A1=B1,"TRUE","FALSE") however typing this a thousand times would not be practical.

Is there a macro that can check column A against column B and tell me which ones are missing?

## Finding Non Zero Smallest Numbers

Feb 16, 2008

Find smallest numbers in the range ignoring zeros.
I want it returned as value "1", all others - as value "0".
Example: range A1:J1 contains - 5,0,7,3,6,5,8,0,9,3
desirable result in the range A2:J2 - 0,0,0,1,0,0,0,0,0,1

## Finding Numbers From String

Aug 11, 2009

I am trying to find numbers from a string. I have for example words "EUR Fwd 9x12" and "Eur Fwd 11x15" And i want to write a function that reads the first number from a string if there is only one number before "x" or two numbers if there are 2 numbers. So I have tried to build following function:

Function NumbersInString(Word As String) As Integer
Dim i As Integer
Dim FirstNumberInString As Integer, SecondNumberInString As Integer
For i = 1 To Len(Word)
If IsNumeric(Mid(Word, i, 1)) Then
FirstNumberInString = Mid(Word, i, 1)
If IsNumeric(Mid(Word, i + 1, 1)) = False Then
Exit Function
Else
SecondNumberInString = Mid(Word, i + 1, 1)
End If
End If

Next
NumbersInString = FirstNumberInString & SecondNumberInString
End Function

## Finding The X Highest Or Lowest Numbers In A Set?

Jul 24, 2014

I am looking for a way to find a highest (and/or) lowest value in a list of numbers. The list keeps getting longer and after a certain point I will need the 2 highest (or lowest), then the 3 highest (or lowest). I know MIN and MAX will find the high and low, but how do I find the 2nd highest, etc?

## Finding An Average Couple Numbers

Jul 9, 2008

I am trying to get an average of a couple numbers, but I have to enter both numbers in one cell.

I have to enter the numbers in a cell as a range (ex. "1000-3000"). I need to convey it as a range in the spreadsheet I am doing, but in a separate cell I need the average of the extremes (1000 & 3000). Is there a formula or anything that would let me get the average of those two numbers(2000) directly from that one cell? If needed, I could make the cell "1000,3000" instead. I just don't want to make two separate cells, one saying 1000 and the other saying 3000.

## Finding Which Numbers Make A Total

May 22, 2009

I do a lot of work in excel to do with accounts and this often needs checking against sage. When the invoices/petty cash sheets are put into sage the total amount is put in, but in my spreadsheets I need to split the reciepts. So I was wondering if there was a formula/VBA code, that if I only knew the total of the invoice would find which cells added up to this total?

## Finding Numbers In Text String

May 11, 2010

In a data report i have a column which contains a mix of text and may contain an 8 digit number which could start in 0.

for example

in column A i could have "Hello how are you 01237232 I am fine"

I wish to extract the number into a seperate column, and would ordinarilly use a mid or left/ right function, however the text infront and behind the number will vary in length, which means i cannot do this.

The number will always be 8 digits, could start in 0 but will not always, and it may not be present in all the cells in this column.

How I an achieve this?

## Finding Numbers Of Rows And Columns?

## Finding Similar Numbers In Two Sheets

Jun 25, 2013

I have an excel file which contains two sheets. In one sheet there are some numbers in a single column. In the other sheet again there are certain numbers span across rows and columns (a number may be duplicated). I need to check whether there are numbers which exist in both the sheets. If such a number is found it may be marked (say with a color) in both the sheets.

## Finding Difference Between Non-consecutive Numbers?

Jul 11, 2013

I have got the following issue. I have got a large list of values in a column. I need to detect the the ones which are in non-consecutive order and display the difference in single numbers. For example:

1 fine
2 fine
3 fine
7 - 4,5,6
10 - 8,9

In other words I need to find the missing values and get them displayed.

## Finding Prime Numbers In A Range And Highlighting It

Oct 28, 2013

How can I find prime numbers in a range and highlight it if a number in a cell is a prime.

## Finding The Middle Cell In A Column Of Numbers

Sep 8, 2009

I am looking for a formulas to first find the middle number in a column of numbers eg 1,2,3,4,5 3 is the middle (similar to median) thats where the calculations start...

it then assigns values of minus to the numbers above the middle and plus values to the numbers below the middle
1 -50
2 -50
3 0
4 +50
5 +50

now when it comes to even numbers eg 1,2,3,4,5,6 if i use median it divide 3 & 4 and comes up with 3.5 ........ i want it to recognize 3 and 4 as the middle numbers
and assign plus and minuses above and below the middle numbers
1 -50
2 -50
3 -25
4 +25
5 +50
6 + 50

## Finding Country Based On Phone Numbers?

Dec 5, 2008

I have a list of mobile phone numbers from various countries. However, I do not know which country each entry is from. Ideally I would like to have a macro that looks at each number, compares to a global list of PSTN structure to determine which part of the phone number is the country code (generally the first 1-3 digits), and then put the country in a separate column.

I am certain all numbers are formatted correctly, so it is only a matter of finding out which part is the country code and putting a value for the country.

## Excel 2010 :: Finding Duplicate Numbers?

Jun 15, 2014

Using Office 2010.

I am trying to find duplicate numbers in sets but so far I can only highlight the ones that are in exact order. I need to find each set that has the same numbers, in any order. Example..

I will provide an example of sets of 3. But I get 3, 4 usually but sometimes 5 or 6.

I get them from different people.

Person A- 234, 569, 498, 849, 848,343,567,347 etc...

Person B- 432, 596, 677, 566, 565,433, 455 etc..

Now I need to find each set that has the same numbers, any order. Like 234 from A and 432 from B would be the same, so I would need to highlight them 2 sets. But I can not figure out how to do this. For Excel to highlight it they have to be 234 and 234. Does not recognize same numbers, different order.

The unit "skids" is constant. The answer I am looking for is "127" or "127 skids"

## Finding Number Closest To Zero (including Negative Numbers)

Nov 25, 2006

a spreadsheet in Excel. I have names with scores. Then I have the winning score. I need a formula to find the score closest to zero and to display the name of the winner.

Ex: Names A1:A4 and Scores B1:B4. Winning Score in B6 and list name in B7.
Ana 16
Bob 2
Charles 8
David 11

Winning Score 10

Answer should be 11 which is David, since David is only -1 away compared to the others.

## Excel 2010 :: Finding Average Value For Positive And Negative Set Of Numbers

Aug 25, 2014

Please find the attached MS Excel 2010 file <average set.xlsx>.

There is set of positive set & negative set of values available in the Column A. The values are plotted against Column A in Column B. Light green are positive sets and light yellow are negative sets.

Now I want to calculate the average for the positive set & negative set of values as shown in light majenta in the cells F4:F9. Also all majenta cells to be plotted by formula.

The Column H and Column I also same as like above , but here negative set of numbers starts first.

## Detect Numbers In A Cell Range And Then Change Cells Based On What Numbers Are Found?

Feb 27, 2014

I'm going to be using a spreadsheet to keep track of where different people are at. So if Person 1 is in Room 3, I will stick a 3 in the box next to their name and then can look at the spreadsheet whenever I need and see what room they are in. When I'm deciding what room to put a person in, though, I need to be able to quickly glance at a list of Room #'s and see what one's are still available. So I have a bank of Room #'s in the spreadsheet....1,2,3, etc.

What I'd like, is some way to set this up so that when I put, for example, "3" in the cell next to "Person 1" the spreadsheet automatically removes "3" from the bank of available Room #'s and when I delete the "3" because the person has left, it adds "3" back to the bank of available Rooms.

## Split Range Of Numbers From One Cell Into Column Of Multiple Cells All With Individual Numbers

Mar 5, 2012

I have a mass of data which look something like this:

table removed

and I require the ranges of reference numbers to be listed in a column one above the other, which requires inserting new rows. I also need the date & description columns copied down into the newly inserted rows.

So basically for example I would want the top row to now read:

table removed

and then apply the same procedure to the other ranges below this.
