to calculate the addition for me in that same cell......ex: I have the number
8 in cell d2 and I want to add the number 8 to that cell and have excel add
the 8 to the previous 8 for a total of 16 in the same cell.....the next time
I would add 5, and the total would be 21? Can this be done in a single cell?
Cell B5: start time: 4:15 formatted as 4:15:00 am
Cell B6: finish time: 6:15 formatted as 6:15:00 am
Cell B7: total time: 2:00 formula in cell: =TEXT(B6B5,"h:mm")
Cell B8: total batches processed: 22 (this is entered manually)
Cell B9: batches per hour: formula in cell: =B8/TEXT(B7,"h")
as long as I have this formula in cell B9 the answer comes out correct which should be 11 per hour.
If the formula in B9 is B8/B7, the answer is 264.0, Is this because of the way excel is reading the total time or the total time is formatted as a time, not an actual number? Is this the correct way to solve the problem?
answer should be 11 per hour.
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

I have a spreadsheet with some cells setup with a dropdown list containing
Y, N or N/A
This is being used on a TabletPC but if I make a mistake or need to change
back to a blank field I have to invoke the soft keyboard, activate the cell
and hit backspace then close the soft keyboard  quite a longwinded
procedure just to change an incorrect choice!
What I would like to do is add a blank to the list so if I have to revert
back to a blank I can just use the stylus to choose a blank from the chooser
list.
How do I add the option of inputting a blank from the Data Validation List
bearing in mind I am using the Data Validation Source box for entering my
choices directly and not specifying a range of cells?
I have tried adding "" and even a space to no avail.
Although not a betting man I would wager there is a simple 'fix' for this
but things are only simple if you know how in the first instance! ;^)

Thanks & regards,

Here's my question...I have a list of numbers and I want to know how many combinations (and what they are) of adding the numbers will equal an amount.
e.g.
List of Numbers
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
10
Amount to be reached = 12
These are some of the possible combinations to reach 12 :
2+10
3+9
4+8
5+7
3+4+5
6+3+2+1
Is there a function in Excel that will do this for me? I want to know which numbers (i.e. cells) can be added to reach 12. AND, if possible, colorcode the cells added for each combination.
Good luck and thanks!!
If I double click the cell and then hit enter it will retotal the area and then give me the correct value, but I'd obviously rather is just work right the first time.
click double click on the cell before the formula recognises the account
number. I have to do this for each cell. I have tried different formats. It
is not saving me that much time.
Cells accept hours over 23,
Adding cells in column returns correct total time.
Have not found a way to multiply these cells by a $ hourly rate.
So use HOUR(cell ref) and MINUTE(cell ref) to capture values in referenced
cell  then use these values to calculate total payment for $rate per hour.
However, the HOUR(cell ref) formula returns the hours in excess of 24 when
the cell contains an hour value in excess of 23 (ie 27 hours returns 3).
pretty straight forward to set a single validation so that a message is
displayed when incorrect data is entered. However, adding another validation
seems to delete the old one. Thanks in advance.
I need to have a cell on Sheet2 display the TEXT from a cell on Sheet1, is his possible??
Example:
Sheet1, Cell A1 contains a clients name and I would like to have Sheet2, Sheet3, Sheet4 etc... Display that clients name in a cell of my choosing (could be a different cell on each Sheet) automatically after entering it once on Sheet1, cell A1.
I thought this was possible but I can't seem to figure it out. I haven't done any real Excel work in quite a long time but I thought I had done this before a long time ago!! Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!! Thanks in advance...
P.S. If I use autosum to do this it just displays the number 0, obviously, since it is trying to add numbers...
I uploaded a copy of the spreadsheet, What I would like to happen is have the text from Sheet1,D4 automatically be placed in Sheet2,A1 and Sheet3, B2. Hope this helps

If that number is less than 100, I want it to show as blank.
Any help?
Right now, I'm trying to accomplish this by making a conditional format...meaning when my cell equals less than 100 I make the cell color and font the same (so it looks blank, but its not). When I print it, it still shows the negative value.
Thanks.
I am trying to make excel automatically add a leading zero to values which are 5 digits long;
i.e. number input is 15185, then excel automatically changes it to 015185.
If I put a Customer Number Format of 0##### it works, however, a user could put any length of number into these cells, and if the number is less than 5 digits I don't want a leading zero.
Is there any way of writing a small macro to sort this out.
The numbers would be input into range B16:223.
Many thanks,
Andy
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
FORMULA: =sumif(range,criteria,sum_range)
I got it to work, but I have cell ranges to total that are not next to each
other (such as A5:A15 and C5:C15).
When selecting the ranges for the formula, Excel writes them A5:A15,C5:C15
because of the comma (,) between the cell ranges Excel is reading the A5:A15
as the range and C5:C15 as the critera. How can I get this formula to allow
me to select multiple cell ranges?
All help is appreciated.
Thank you.
In simple terms, you can't enter data in cell X, until cell "Y" has been populated with something.
Can anyone help with this, because I can't figure it out....
For instance,
A B
1 $32.17 8/17/08
2 $43.20 9/12/09
If I go in and update cell A1 to $33.98 today I would like cell B1 to read 2/16/10. But I don't want cell B2 to change.
Thanks
Thanks for any help.

Im very familiar with how to write a macro to automatically autofilter a list based upon a Cell Value (i.e. Range =(A1)...etc.).... but what I cannot figure out how to correctly write is a way to have Excel automatically autofilter a list for any row that CONTAINS the Cell Value, instead of just the exact value.
Cell Value = "birds"
Example  I need to filter every row so that I see every row that CONTAINS "birds" in the characterstring, not just the row that = "birds".
a) is this possible?
If not, I'd like to know also so I can stop attempting to guess (;
Thanks!!!
