Formula To Group Values Into Segments 
Formula To Group Values Into Segments  Excel 

Hi all,
I'm looking for help in building a formula which will sort numbers into different "buckets". My spreadsheet has a range of values in column B. These values can range anywhere from 100,000,000 to +10,000,000. I'd like to be able to sort them into the following buckets:

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
Thanks

How do I sort but have the other data move with the column I'm sorting? Whenever I sort, for example, by name, the address and phone numbers columns stay the same and are therefore incorrect with the newly sorted columns. I've looked everywhere.
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

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

Hello from sunny Madrid
I have created a complex formula to help me calculating Golf handicaps for players.
The formula is in the first cell and I want to drag the formula across to the right to cover the 18 holes.
But ALL the values change and I want some to change and some to stay constant.
How do I tell excel to drag the formula across but keep certain parts of the formula the same..ie ....=D11.... in the formula when dragged across doesn't go D12,D13;D14 in each cells formula and should stay as D11 for all.
Many thanks for your help

Good mornng  I am new to the forum  my name is Jena
My question is this  I have a large spreadsheet with multiple columns of information. I want to sort it by a certain column. I know how to do this. My question is, once I'm done with my work I want to sort it back to the original "sort" but I'm not sure how they have it sorted. I've tried to figure out how they have it sorted but can't. Is there some way to go back to the original sort?
Thank you for your anticipated help.

Great tip! But one thing: On my machine (Excel 2008 Mac), the values in the formula cell are not correctly calculated simply by dragging. Instead, the values are equal to the cell above (the first entry formula value). To get the correct value, I need to click in the formula bar and then hit enter. (I only discovered this after an hour of tinkering, figuring I had botched the formula!)
Are there any ways around this so that it updates upon dragging the formula?

Hi All,
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

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.

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.

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.
}
Thanks in advance...

Right now I have a sports league with 8 teams, I'd like to create a random 7game schedule where each team plays the other team only once. Essentially this will be a 7game 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 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...

Hi,
Can someone please help? I've got quite a lot of data that I want to sort
by the persons date of birth, but because I have cells with formula in it
(this works out the persons age) the sort function is changing the formulas
so the formulas no longer work becuase it changes the cell where it is
getting the data from. Does anyone have any ideas how this could be fixed??

hi guys,
i have a simple spreadsheet where i'm totalling a few values thru a formula. it's similar to this:
=D13*F13
i'm trying to create a funcion that says if d13 * f13 >= 300, i want the value to stay at 300 max and at the same time, if d13 * f13 < 300, i want the total to remain whatever it is.
i have been able to create both of these formulas successfully by themselves but i can't combine them. is this possible?
any help would be greatly appreciated!!

for example if you have values of
1 0 1 1 1 0 0 0 1 1 1 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 1 1 1
how to count number of occurances where value of 1 is 3 consecutive times? Obviously answer is 3 in this instance but is there an excel formula to count/sum this?
Thanks in advance
1 0 1 1 1 0 0 0 1 1 1 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 1 1 1

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

Hello Everybody,
I am hoping for some assistance. Here is what I have....
I am trying to get counts of certain values.
This is in the same workbook but different sheets.
On sheet 1 is where my formula lies. In a cell, I want it to look at sheet 2 column B and look for instances of "A", then I want it to look in the same row it found "A" and look at the value in column "N" and evaluate if there is an amount. If there isn't skip it and don't count it, if there is a value count it if it falls within a given range.
An example of the formula is below...what am I missing?
=COUNTIF(Sheet2!B:B,(VLOOKUP(A,Sheet2!B:N,13,FALSE)=0:500))
=COUNTIF(Sheet2!B:B,(VLOOKUP(A,Sheet2!B:N,13,FALSE)=501:1000))
Thank you in advance for your assistance.

I am trying to work out how to calculate the geometric mean of a series of values, some of which are negative, ie. investment returns over a series of years with some negatives.
The Geomean function doesn't work because it only uses positive numbers.

Entering time values in custom format [h]:mm:ss
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).

I have workbook in which I want to save a specific worksheet to a new file with only the values saved  all data in this worksheet are references to cells on another worksheet, which is using VLOOKUP to pull data from a database.
Found the following code and it gets me close, but it copies the cell references, not the values. It also allows me to specify the file name from a cell reference.
I want the new workbook file to simply be saved, not opened, and a message box to display stating where the file was saved (will always be in the same location on the LAN).
What modifications do I make to this to get this to work per above requirements?
Sub CopyMe()
Dim SaveMeAs As String
SaveMeAs = Sheets("Sheet1").Range("B2").Text
Sheets("Sheet3").Copy
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="C:\My Documents\" & SaveMeAs
End Sub
