Excel Not Calculating Like My Calculator  Needs To Round Or Not Round 
Excel Not Calculating Like My Calculator  Needs To Round Or Not Round  Excel 

On excel, if I divide 462,534.05 by 335 I get 1,380.70. Then if I times 1,380.70 by 335 I get the SAME result of 462,534.05.
I have to account for the difference of not dividing equally so there is some format or accounting function that's preset that I don't want but I have no idea how to fix it or format my excel sheet to calculate as my calculator would.
Please can someone help? Thanks!

difference where the times cross midnight. Example:
Start time: 23:50:00
End time: 00:15:00
How would you formulate an equation to determine the duration of time or
differnce between the start and end time?
It looks like this:
=(E3/((A3+D3)/2))*12/months
So if I substitute with some actual data:
=(6/((22+33)/2))*12/months the answer becomes 21.8% (as the annualized voluntary turnover rate).
What does the *12/months actually do mathematically? I cannot find it in the excel help files and have not been able to figure this out using math (on the calculator).
For example: Cell A1 has a time format (hh:mm) value of 04:00; which is the Start Time. I would like cell D1 to have a text format value of "04:00" (result is dependant upon what is entered in A1). I would duplicate the same formulas to reflect Stop Times in other cells.
My final result is to have another cell (F1) use the Concatenate formula to have the Start and Stop time shown in one cell as "04:00  12:30". The times would change based on the Time formated values entered into the Start and Stop time cells.
I have researched this in the board and found many excellent ways to do the opposite, but not convert Time format to Text format. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

How do i do this??
Thanks
Hoping someone can help me quickly as I'm pulling my hair out and have a deadline getting too close.
Been trailing the net and this board but can't work out how to do a simple variance.
How do I work out the difference between two numbers  including negatives.
If the numbers are all positive, it's fine as it's simply a case of A  B = C which is your difference. However, that doesn't work if B is negative.
I need a formula that would give the following:
First Number / Second Number / Difference
1 / 5 / 4
1 / 5 / 6
1 / 5 / 6
1 / 5 / 4
5 / 1 / 4
Hopefully there's a simple function I've been missing.
Thanks in advance, R
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!
Many thanks,

I am working with an Excel spreadsheet and saving it as a .csv file in order to upload to an application that parses out the .csv data as transactions. The system requires .csv files, so this is how I need to save my doc (with this extension). I have been successful at preventing Excel from coverting that long number into scientific format. I have saved as a TXT file, pasted the longer number and it displays correctly. That is all good. But I have to save as a .csv. So if I do that, close the Excel window, and then open again (as the .csv file), the numbers are back to being displayed in scientific format. I have tried creating an Excel doc from scratch and entering text in Text format, to see if this created a cleaner file. But again, the second I save as .csv, close the window and then open that file up again, that dang scientific format is back.
Does anyone have any idea of how to work around this? Once I have successfully gotten the numbers to display as the longchain number, how can I get them to "stick" so that they don't revert back to scientific format when I reopen the file?
Thanks so much for your help!
I have 6 sheets to count and all the names are in column A (from A1:A100) on each sheet. The names are not in a particular order.
On sheet 7 I want to have a cell beside each persons name that counts the number of times their name appeared on the other 6 sheets.
For example Sheet 7 (called total) would have
Joe 5 (where 5 is the outcome of the formula I'm looking for to count all the times "Joe" appears on sheets 16).
I have it counting per sheet with =COUNTIF(A1:A130,"name") but this is not quite what I am looking for.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
Edit: I am using Excel 2007 w/ windows XP
I can calculate the formula for this , but the problem comes where for eg there is a loss in Jan 2008 for 95415 and there was a profit in Jan 2007 for 80215. How do I set up formula to take negatives & positives into account in calculating the increase or decrease/
Your assistance or anybody's on the forum will be greatly appreciated

example;
8:00 to 8:07 = 8.0 hrs
8:08 to 8:23 = 8.25 hrs
8:24 to 8:38 = 8.5 hrs
8:39 to 8:53 = 8.75 hrs
8:53 to 8:59 = 9.0 hrs
I am having trouble writing an equation that would sum the clockin and clockout times (2 per day) and display the total time in these quarter hours and adding an additional hour if it is >= to *:53. Any help would be great.
The call times are in the custom format h:mm, although it could easily be changed to an Excel time format. I'm using Excel 2002. I want the cell to have a different fill color if it falls within particular time frames.
Example: If the call came in between 22:00 and 23:59 color is light green.
If the call came in between 23:59 and 08:00 the color is yellow.
Example spreadsheet is attached.
Thanks in advance.
Cost = B1
Margin = C1
I know to calculate Margin its' C1=1(B1/A1) and to calculate Sale its, A1=B1/(1C1), and I can do that in separate columns. But...... I'm tasked with trying to find a way so that I can do it in three columns. As in if I change cost then margin recalculates or if I change margin then sale recalculates. I'm thinking that this is going to cause a circular error but my boss says there's got to be a way to do it, figure it out. Any suggestions?

I need some help in this:
In a excel workbook when I copy a worksheet (to duplicate with other name) there is always a name conflict and so I have to say yes (maintain the name) or say no (and excel ask for other names) many times (sometimes more than 50 times pressing the enter button. Its possible to disable this feature?
My best regards and Thanks in advance.

triangle. I copied it to create a new data set and used find &
replace to change the worksheet references to the new ones.
The cells still contain the result of the old formula referring to the
previous worksheets. The only way I can get the formula to return the
correct result is to edit (F2) each cell and press enter. Calc now
(F9) does nothing.
I've seen this before, but this time, I need to calculate many
thousands of cells and don't have time for this workaround.
Any ideas?
Thanks.

We will be building 8 "widgets" a day.
We will work 10 hours a day.
There is a 20 minute break at 9:20 am.
Production shuts down for lunch 30 minutes for lunch at 12:30.
Production starts at 6:00 am.
Here is what I can do.
Production cycle time = (10*60)30/8 or 71.25 minutes
If we start at 6:00 am, the first scheduled cycle completion time = TIME(6,0,0+71.25/1440)
My problem is when I am trying to use a logical "IF' statement to account for the 20 minute break or lunch and still calculate the end of each cycle time through the day I receive a number of error messages.
This is the formula I am trying to make work. I have the cell the formula is in, formatted with a "mm,ss" format.
=(IF(D4+G1/1440>9:20,(D4+G1)/24,(D4+G1+15)/1440))
I have included an attachment to help (a picture is worth a thousand words).
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
I have bought a number of books in an attempt to figure this out, and I am still stumped
I'd like to do this in Excel, but I can't figure out how to have a randomly generating nonrepeating 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...
