Football (soccer) Predictions Formula 
Football (soccer) Predictions Formula  Excel 

E.g.
Manchester United 3  0 Arsenal
Prediction: 4  1
Points: 1
I've found a formula online that works for most scores; the correct score (e.g. 3  0), a correct win (e.g. 4  1), and in the case of a draw (e.g Man Utd 1  1 Arsenal, and the prediction 2 2), correct draw (but not the correct score). The points are as follows: Correct draw (Prediction = result): 4 Correct win (Prediction = result): 3 Correct win, incorrect score (Winner correct, score not): 1 Correct draw, incorrect sco 1
The formula I found online for all but the correct draw is: =IF(A3&B3=C3&D3),3,IF(AND(A3=B3,C3=D3),1,IF(AND(A3>B3,C3>D3),1,IF(AND(A3<B3,C3<D3),1,0)))))
Could someone help me work out how I can write a formula to add before the above that will check the contents of four cells (the home score, away score, home prediction, away prediction), and if the number in all 4 cells are the same, allocate 4 points? I've tried using averages, but some combinations would void this. I've also used the SUM function, but the same happens, as with MULTIPLYING.
Something like =IF(A3:D3) are equal, 4,0
Below are a few examples of what I mean:
(Result) (Prediction) (Points)
A B C D E
3  3 3  3 4
2  1 3  1 1
1  0 1  0 3
3  3 2  2 1
Apologies in advance if I haven't explained this clearly enough.
Thanks

I have the following in G2:
=VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet1!A:D,4,FALSE)
The formula returns the correct result, which in this case is a number  2
When I fill down my range, the formula copies correctly, but every result is the same. 2.
However, if I go to the next cell down (G3) and activate it by pressing F2, and then hit Enter, the result changes and is now correct.
Any ideas whats going wrong?
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.
Example:
A1: 50
A2: 10
B1: 60
B2: 20
A3: Formula: =A1+A2 Displays: 60
Right click A3, Copy, right click B3, paste
A3 displays 60
When I click save, it will change the display value to 80.
I am trying this on his workstation and mine. Mine has Office 2010, so I think there might be an issue with the file itself.
Also, not just copy and paste. I can also just click the top cell after filling in the formula and then drag the bottom right of the cell downward and it will do the same of filling in the correct formula, but have the incorrect value.
I know that I could get him to just click save each time before really looking at the results, but that is just a band aid to the problem.
Any ideas how to fix this?
New to the forums.
I'm in the process of creating a new report and I'm stuck.
My report consists of a set target in a field, a score and percentage of target.
e.g Target is 400
score is 450.
Percentage is 1.125 of target. (=score/target)
Now what I would like to do is create a formula that does not go above 100% , but instead work in reverse if you go over the target.
E.g. Target 400 .. Score was 450 ... percentage of target is 87.5%
Thanks in advanced.
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.
(changes the cells it should subtract), however, the result stays the same.
It matches the formula I copied it from, even though the cells to calculate
are now different. I even did a paste special and said only formula, but
still, same result. If I actually type in the formula, it works fine, but I
have a lot I need to copy and paste. Is there a way I can fix this?
Thanks,
Many Thanks

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.

How do I enter the value in a cell (say B4) into a formula as a constant so it doesn't change when I copy it down the column?
For example,
B4 = 2.4 (a constant)
This is the result I want:
F6 =C8 + B4*4.243
F7 =C9 + B4*4.243
F8 =C10 + B4*4.243
B4 remains constant as I copy F6 down.
What's the correct formula for F6 so I can copy it down and keep B4 fixed?
Thanks.
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.
Are there any ways around this so that it updates upon dragging the formula?
I'm trying to extract all the text in a cell which is on the right side of a comma (,)
Currently I am using this formula,
=RIGHT(C1,FIND(",",C1)1)
However it sometimes is missing some of the data after the , and sometimes pulling a few characters before the ,
any suggestions on how to correct my formula please?
Thanks in advance.
ie. add points to find their concentration on a standard curve.
Thanks.
Im unable to put any pics up as my work pc has java disable so photobucket ect won't work but has anyone else come across this problem and how did you rectify it? A search macro perhaps?
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'm quite experienced Excel user. I've never come across this problem but tinkering in every conceivable way within Excel settings and the solution has eluded me.
I have added a worksheet created elsewhere (it is a form I need printing, with the data coming from 2 sheets I have created from scratch) which has pre formatted cells for Date and Client Name etc.
When I try to reference the cell in this added sheet from my 2 sheets, instead of the result, it always displays the formula, not the result.
I have tried doing it from one of my sheets to reference to this new, and that displays the result and not formula. I can't imagine why it's doing this and I've never seen it happen before.
Formatting cells, giving cells names rather than the usually adequate of reference to the Cell Number doesn't change things. I wonder if I've picked up some legacy protection from the original form but can't see anywhere in the tools etc that's obvious.
There's about 50+ cells that need referencing and I got to get this done for work.
Please help me. This is my first need to post on a Excel Forum as I've always found help or answers from other peeps or internet but this one is making me scratch my head big time.
For example, if I have a total of 53 calls and the total talk time is 4:19:05, what would the average talk per call be? I tried doing everything in seconds (this would give me a total of 15545 seconds) but the total I was getting is 4:89.
What would the formula be to get the correct average time?
