# 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%

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.

creating Named Formulas to handle nested IF & And statements, to get around excel's limit of 7 nested IF statements.

First of all, is it possible to create a Named Formula with combined IF with AND statement such as: =IF(AND(F26>=54,F26<=77.99),"2x3"," ")--I am getting a periodic error message: "Cell with block IF function should not contain anything else."?

I am trying to: 1. Contstruct two separate Mega formulas using IF & AND to determine what range of sizes , located in Col "F", should fall into which SIZE_CAT, sample of ranges are as follows:

SIZE_CATSIZE IN TOTAL INCHES

2X3 54 thru 77.99

3X5 78 thru 108

4X6 108 thru 138

2. Name these two formulas, FirstNamed and SecondNamed

FirstNamed formula is:=IF(AND(F26>=54,F26<=77.99),"2x3",IF(AND(F26>=78,F26<=108),"3x5",IF(AND($F26>=108,$F26<=138),"4x6",IF(AND($F26>=138.01,$F26<=168),"5x8",""))))

SecondNamed formula is:=IF(AND($F30>=168.01,$F30<=198),"6x9",IF(AND($F30>=198.01,$F30<=234),"8x10",IF(AND($F30>=234.01,$F30<=270),"9x12",IF(AND($F30>=270.01,$F30<=320),"10x14",IF(AND($F30>=320.01,$F30<=500),"Larger","")))))

3. Combine two named formulas with a "Master Formula" such as:

=IF(FirstNamed,FirstNamed,SecondNamed)

I got the IF with AND formulas to work in a test columns, but cannot seem to get them to respond properly when trying to get them into a Named Formula(s).

I have attached an example of the workbook.

I am trying to create on excel order form. I want customers to be able to input the item # (a range from 1 to 12), then I want the to price to be calculated based on the item # they input.

For example. If they choose item #2 in A6 then the price in F6 will be recorded as $8.00. (the price would change for each item # they input).

the formula I started out with was:

=IF((A6=1),"$8.00")

this worked for me if A6 did in fact equal 1.

So I tried adding this equation to the formula.

=IF((A6=1),"$8.00")*OR((A6=2),"$7.00")....this would continue on. I even pressed "command return" after the statement as if I was entering an array formula.

I got the error #VALUE!

I'm creating an (English) football predictions competition for me and my family.

One problem that has stumped me is how to get the scores based on the 'home' & 'away' score predictions.

The rules are: If I predict the correct exact result I get 3 points. I want to add another 'rule' whereby if I predict the correct winner, I get 1 point. Incorrect predictions get 0 points. I don't know how to do this using a formula.

Current simplified situation:

Department A

Employee_1

Employee_2

Employee_3

(empty cell)

Department B

Employee_4

Employee_5

Department C

Employee_6

Employee_7

Employee_8

Employee_9

Employee_10

With the VLOOKUP function, I have looked up the row numbers of the departments. Subsequently, I'd like to find the last employee of that department, based on the department's name and/or the department's row number.

A department-typed cell is non-empty and never contains an underscore. An employee-typed cell is non-empty and it always contains an underscore.

The simple and non-sufficing formula is the VLOOKUP of the row number of next department minus one. But with adding, moving and subtracting departments rapidly, this is not an option.

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).

I am an architect and recently I was required to do some extensive calculation relating to water requirements and toilet requirements for a building that i was designing. i created a excel file, with a basic vlookup function to put certain values in the cells that are pre-defined for a particular building typology (mostly created by governmental bodies as guidelines). for example, when i choose a particular type in column E, column F and G fills up automatically. now this table also gives me occupant load based on what is the area i enter in column D.

The problem is that I want to automate the calculation of toilet requirements. Now, each typology will have a different formula to calculate WC/Urinal/washbasin.

1. there will be 17 different formula - one for each typology (as shown in sheet 5)

2. Column j will calculate what is the number of WC required based on 2 criteria - first id what is the typology and then looking what is the number of occupant.

The problem here is for example, if in E9, selected typology as "offices", the formula of offices typology will be used in J9 and occupant value from H9 will be used but if i have E18 also selected as offices typology, the same formula will use occupant value mentioned in H18 instead of using H9.

Hence, excel will first have to look what is the typology selected. based on that, it will load formula - out of that 17 different formula - specific to that typology and finally it will refer to corresponding row for occupant load and will use it in the formula to get the result.

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]

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.

I need formula to calculate a fee based on performance. For example I have 4 unique keys with the following performance:

KEYPerformance

2010,000

2120,000

2230,000

2340,000

I need to work out how I can formula drive a fee calculation based on performance which is subject to different ranges:

KEYMin FeeFee 1Fee 2Fee 3Fee 4

201000.10.20.30.4

211000.10.20.30.4

221000.10.20.30.4

231000.10.20.30.4

For example key 20 has a min fee chargeable of 100, however a fee is chargable based on performance as follows:

Fee Range 10-9999

Fee Range 210000-19999

Fee Range 320000-29999

Fee Range 430000-99999999

So key 20 gets charged 0.1% of amounts between 0&9,999, 0.2% of amounts between 10,000&19,999, 0.3% on amounts between 20,000& 29,999 and 0.4% on the rest.

How can this be combined into a lookup/range/low-high formula to extract the correct values????

I have a spreadsheet that has staff id in one column and the work items number that they have done in a daily basis in another column.

The actual list is very long. I need to summarize in another column how many work items that they have completed in a daily basis.

I have attached a sample spreadsheet as an example. I would need to summarize in column H based on the staff ID. Some work items are shared by two staff but it will have to be counted as one work item completed for each staff. If work item B123466 is completed both by staff M56 and M54, then it will be counted as one for each.Currently, I am doing this manually with the filter function which is very tedious and often has mistakes. I would like to formularize this task.

I am looking for a formula that can change the price of some of the items on sheet1 in column C by the amount found on Sheet2 in Column D. I would like it to base the calculation on column C in sheet2 (so I can choose if I want to add, subtract, multiply, divide, or make the price exact). I would like all prices that don't match these UPC codes to remain unchanged.

Intended Results can be seen on Sheet1 in Column E. Not sure if I should a formula with the Vlookup function or a macro, or maybe there is even a better solution.
