Hi Everybody,

First post on the forum, have only recently joined and im hoping that someone can help me before my head explodes!

I am trying to prepare a simple Material Quantity List for some Steel materials.

The materials are all in specific sizes.

What i want to do is, as i input the length, width and height of the structure in the spreadsheet, the Material Quantity List will generate the quantity of each piece of material i will need.

Does anybody know of a formula for this. I have been trying to use the IF function and getting absolutely nowhere, all suggestions will be highly appreciated!!

How do you automatically add rows and update values for cells to a linked worksheet in which rows have been added? For example: Sheet 1, columns A & B are linked to Sheet 2, columns A & B. Sheet 2 has values in A1:A5 & B1:B5 and Sheet 1, since it is linked, has the same info. I want to add a row in between 3 & 4 on Sheet 2 and want Sheet 1 to automatically add the same row and update the value of the cell in column A & B.

Basically I have created a spreadsheet with several columns, but I have one column that lists the shirt size (YS, YM, YL, AS, AM, AL, XL, 2X, 3X) of each person. Is there a formula that I can create that will tabulate the number of sizes (i.e. AS=2, AM=7, etc.)?

In previous years I made a column for each size, and simply placed a "1" in the correct column, and had excel just add the 1's from each column. However, that takes more time and space. I was hoping to streamline it this time around.

Today I ran into an odd problem. I typed in values for column A rows 1 through 10 then values for column B rows 1 through 10. then in column C, I made the formula C1=A1/B1. The math was correct it showed 542 in the C1 cell. So I dragged that formula down and it showed 542 in all column C cells which is not correct. And when I went to check to see if the formula was correctly dragged it was. For instance, the formula in C2 is =A2/B2 however the value of that cell showed 542 which was not the correct math/value.

But it gets even more weird. When I click on the Column C cells and then it shows the formula up top in the formula bar and if I put my cursor anywhere in the formula bar and hit Return the formula does not change however the correct value then appears in the Column C cell. It is like the act of putting the cursor in the formula activates it to work properly but until it is activated that C cell shows the value of the cell which it was dragged down from.

This is quite bizarre. Has anyone ever seen this before? I have no idea what is going on. I ran a scan for viruses and none were found. I tried it on several new/different spreadsheets but it keeps happening.

Thanks for any tips on this.

Column 1 has roughly 20 rows of information. Cell C1 has the formula =A1.

Is there a formula so that when I drag C1 horizontally into D1, E1, F1, ..., the values placed in each cell will be =A2, =A3, =A4, ...

I do not want to transpose the values from column 1 into C1, D1,.... I want these cells to have a formula that links them up to column 1's values

Right now I have a sports league with 8 teams, I'd like to create a random 7-game schedule where each team plays the other team only once. Essentially this will be a 7-game round robin. However, I'd like to be able to use this for any number of teams and games.

I'd like to do this in Excel, but I can't figure out how to have a randomly generating non-repeating macro with text values in cells.

So right now I have a column of 8 values and need matrix of 7 columns by 8 rows next to it.

I've found this thread that has one for numbers, but I can't figure out how to do it for text values...

Hi!

I have a question regarding filtering of columns, hopefully someone is able to put me on the right track. I have set up Excel 2007 so that I can click on the drop-down menu in each column to filter them.

However, in my data set there is one blank row separating two set of rows. Now, when I apply the filter on a column, all the rows above the blank row filter correctly, but all the rows below stay un-filtered.

I guess Excel only looks at the consequtive rows, then stops when it hits a blank row. Is there any way of applying the filter beyond a blank row (i.e. the whole column)?

Any advice is higly appreciated.

Hello,

I am new to using Excel and I am not very computer literate. I am looking for some help with a spreadsheet I am making. Here is the problem:

I have a column of 14 numbers in cells A1 to A14. If all of these values are less than 2%, I would like a "Pass" to display in cell B1. If any of these values are greater than 2% I would like a "Fail" to display in cell B1.

I have got a formula that works for a single cell but I can't figure out how to get it to apply to more than one cell. For example, I have entered =IF(A1<2,"Pass","Fail") in cell B1. Now if the value I enter in A1 is less than 2, it shows a "Pass", and if the value in A1 is greater than 2 it shows a "Fail" in cell B1. How can I get this to apply to all of the cells from A1 to A14?

If somebody could help me out that would be great.

Thanks,

Randy

Hey

I have three columns containing last name values from 3 different sources that I've brought into one sheet. I am trying to find a way to compare all three values to establish if they are the same.

Of the three values there is no master, Each value may be different. So essentially it would be like doing =IF(a1=a2=a3,"match", "nomatch")

But of course this isn't possible.

I don't care about obtaining detail about which value matches which. I just need true or false response as to whether all three values are the same or not.

Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

Hi there. I'm using Excel 2007 and often use filters to find inconsistent data (mis-spellings, etc.) and then clean up the data using the fill handle to fill in correctly formatted values. I'm finding that, with a simple filter on, dragging over cells hidden by the filter changes the values in the hidden cells too. This is something I don't remember from my last version of Excel. I'm wondering if I've mis-remembered how this control works, or if there is a setting I can't find.

My goal is to drag and fill (or paste) in a colum with a range of rows wiht some hidden (filtered out) rows, and have the filtered out data be unaffected, if that makes sense.

Thanks!

I am setting up a PivotTable and only want to show the actual raw data values in the PivotTable field and NOT any sum, count, average, max, min, etc etc.

How can I do this? I only seem to have the options for sums, counts, etc. There are no options for just presenting the data.

So for example, rather than a PivotTable that results in counts of 1, 1, 1 in each cell, I want it to show Compay1, Company2, Company3, etc.

I would like to copy a small table from Word into one cell in an Excel

worksheet. The first column of the table is a list of numbers. I tried

converting the table into text with manual line breaks and tab stops to

divide columns and rows, but that didn't solve my problem.

Excel pastes the data into several rows. When I try to merge them, I

get a warning that the selection contains multiple data values, and

merging into one cell keeps the upper-left most data only.

What I tried that didn't work:

* Formatting the Excel cells as text before pasting the data.

* The various options for "Paste Special." The closest I got was

inserting the table as a Document Object, which could be a workaround,

I guess.

What I am saving for when all else fails:

* The obvious solution of copying row by row into one Excel cell.

The data in the table is information about my dad's medications. I

would like to have reference charts of how to identify the strength of

each tablet by its color and markings. I got the info from the

manufacturers' websites and entered it into tables in Word, which I

would like to copy into a more comprehensive file I am creating in

Excel. The first column of each table is the strength of the tablet,

entered as 1 mg., 2 mg., etc. The subsequent columns describe the

shape, color, and markings. There are 3 tables, each with about 4-5

rows.

Is there a way to copy each one - whether as a table or as text - into

a single Excel cell without losing data?

Many thanks.

Hello,

I have two columns of data: column A contains the date and time in the form dd/mm/yyyy. Column B contains a number value. All the times are in order, so column A looks like:

01/01/2007

02/01/2007

03/01/2007

I have data from 2007 to 2010. I need to calculate an average daily value (in column B) for each month, and display it in column C. So, for January, I need to calculate the average of 31 days, February, 28 days, etc.

Is there a function I can use to do this? I've been trying the AVERAGEIF formula but can't get it to work. Any ideas would be much appreciated!

Regarding Charts in Excel:

Is there a way to have the Min and Max values adjusted dynamically for the Scale of the values being displayed ??

I know that I can use named ranges to display various sections of data -- month by month, or quarter by quarter, for example.

But when the value of these ranges vary greatly from section to section I end of having to manually go and adjust the Min and Max values of the chart scale.

For example, if I was looking at a graph of the S&P 500's prices last November, a Min and Max range of 750 to 1200 would be fine. But if I had a dynamic range established and scrolled over to view the S&P 500's prices for this past February, I would need a Min and Max range of around 650 to 850.

Is there a way to have these Min & Max values adjust automatically depending on the values being displayed ??

Thanks

Hi all.

I have set up a workbook that is sent out to lots of different users. They each keep and use their own copy.

I have set it up so that everything looks OK and is visible on MY screen, but I'm conscious that some users may have different screen sizes, different toolbars set up, and so on, which might make some parts not immediately visible to them.

I have set up an auto-execute macro which automatically sets the zoom factor to best fit, for several of the worksheets, and this works fine.

Here's the code that does it.

Code:

By repeating this code for each worksheet, I can make each one be zoomed just right.

However, the file contains 8 sheets that are all identically laid out, except the number of rows is different.

What I want to do is go to the worksheet that has the largest number of rows (it's always the same worksheet, so I know which one it is), set the zoom factor for THAT worksheet (which I can do, and it always has the same number of rows), and then take THAT zoom factor, whatever it is - and it will vary depending on the user - and apply that to the other worksheets that have a similar layout.

I could just go through each worksheet and zoom it automatically, but that would mean that some of the sheets looked very large, others very small, and I'd like them to have a consistent appearance.

I could also specify a range on each worksheet that was similar to the appropriate range on the longest worksheet, and zoom that automatically, but that's not ideal either, because some of the row heights vary from sheet to sheet, and again I'll end up with different font sizes.

Anyone know how to do this ?

Hi,

Try this...

There are some valid datas in the cells A2 (Eg. 100), B2(Eg. 200), C2 and D2.

Data validation is used in cell K2 to limit it to a set of values.

Can we implement this formula?

IF(K2="Approved")

{

A2=A3; B2=B3; C2=C3; D2=D3; K2=K3;

}

ELSE

{

no change to any values.

}

I saw two threads in this forum that asked this question, with no good answer. I am posting this solution for anybody still struggling with this.

The question:

How can you prevent a cell's contents from overflowing into the next cell?

Of course, you can make the column wider or turn on text wrapping, but you might not want to. Each of those solutions can mess up the layout of your sheet. You may just want to truncate the value.

Some people have suggested putting a space in the next cell. This is unnecessary, a pain in the but, and will mess up any ISBLANK type formulas, among other things.

The solution:

Select the cells in question and turn on text wrapping (Format>Cells>Alignment>Wrap Text).

Now select the row(s) in question and manually set the row height, by right clicking the row number and selecting "Row Height". Check the height of an adjacent row for a good value.

Your cells will now not spill over either horizontally or vertically. They will simply truncate anything that doesn't fit.

Be careful now, because parts of your data may be hidden. This can cause its own set of problems if one or two digits are neatly hidden away. Think ahead if other people might be using this sheet, and not be expecting to have some data hidden.

The question:

How can you prevent a cell's contents from overflowing into the next cell?

Of course, you can make the column wider or turn on text wrapping, but you might not want to. Each of those solutions can mess up the layout of your sheet. You may just want to truncate the value.

Hi all,

I have several accumulated values from other spreadsheets on my spreadsheet and I'm combining and organizing them on mine. However, the cell alignment isn't working properly as you can see in the picture below.

Now, I can certainly retype these values and align them and they'll align all nice and neat; however, I have a huge Column and retyping that column would take an inordinate amount of time.

I searched earlier on cell alignment and couldn't find anything. Any help is appreciated.

Sincerely,

Bill
