=sum(price*quantity) And Microsoft Help Is No Help At All

Hi

I'm not sure how to do this, but I want the Total (column D) to be the sum of the Unit Price (column C) times the Quantity (column A). Is there a formula you can apply to a column or do I have to do it in individaul cells?

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!!


Hi there,

I'm very new to Excel, and I'm having trouble figuring a few things out. Hopefully this will be very easy for you guys!

In Sheet 1, I have a column of cells that I would like to also appear in Sheet 2. If I add a new row to the column in Sheet 1, I would also like it to be updated automatically in Sheet 2. Currently, I can get it to show the contents of individual cells from Sheet 1 in Sheet 2 by using this formula in the formula bar for each cell in Sheet 2:

=Sheet1!A3 (or whichever cell it is)

That's fine, but I'd like to just have a formula that will reproduce the entire column (ie. without a fixed range, as new rows are going to be added to the column).

If anyone could point me in the right direction, I'd be very very grateful. Thanks.


I would like to know how to make excel calculate which inventory is left in the FIFO method, quantities that are bought first are the first to be sold. Basically where the quantity and price is derived from.

For example:
APPLE
bought 100 on FEB 1 @$1
bought 500 on FEB 1 @$1
bought 1000 on FEB 10 @$1
sold 300 on FEB 12 @$1.5
bought 100 on FEB 13 @$1.1
sold 100 on FEB 13 @$1.2
bought 1000 on FEB 14 @$1
bought 400 on FEB 15 @$1
sold 2000 on FEB 19 @$1.5

For this, the formula/function would know that:
=>for the 300 sold on FEB 12, 100 bought on FEB 1 is depleted and 200 of the 500 bought on FEB 1 is depleted.
=>for the 100 sold on FEB 13, the 100 bought on FEB 13 is depleted
=>for the 2000 sold on FEB 19, it knows that:
==>the 100 bought on FEB 1, the 200 of the 500 bought on FEB 1, and the 100 bought on FEB 13 is depleted so it can't consider those quantities
==>it would consider the remaining 300 of the 500 bought on FEB 1, 1000 bought on FEB 10, and 700 of the 1000 bought on FEB 14

The remaining quantities that are left would be the remaining 300 of the 1000 bought on Feb 14 and the 400 bought on FEB 15.

I would like to know for each sold transaction, which quantities at which prices on which day were sold.

Thanks in advance!


I am trying to write a formula that uses both an if statement and a vlookup statement.

It's for a house cleaning price list, with two sets of prices. I want the formula to say if the value in E7 is R, i want to lookup the value for the house in the second column. If the value in the cell is anything else, i want to lookup the value for the house in the third column.

So in sense, my formula should look like =IF (E7=1,"=VLOOKUP(A10,'Clean Prices'!$A$2:$C$58,2,FALSE)","=VLOOKUP(A10,'Clean Prices'!$A$2:$C$58,3,FALSE)")

But it doesn't work. Is it possible to nest a vlookup in an if statement?


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!

Many thanks,
Caitlin


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

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.


I have two columns in my spreadsheet. Column A has no blank fields, Column B has some blank fields. I would like to show the text from Column A in the same row of Column B only when Column B is blank.

So, basically I'm after: If column B has text, do nothing. If column B is blank, then list text from Column A.

Right now I've created Column C with this formula =IF(ISBLANK(B1), A1. That's working to get the text from A1 when B1 is blank. What can I do/add to get it pull the text from B1 if there is text there? Or...is there a better approach altogether?


Hello, I'm trying to count the number of times a name appears across multiple worksheets but I can't seem to figure it out.


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 1-6).

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.

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.


I'm trying to format a worksheet to show how many days overdue certain tasks are, and running into a couple of issues. The sheet is set up with Due Dates in Column A, Days Overdue in Column B, and Date Completed in Column C. My first thought was just to use as simple a formula as possible in Column B =Today()-A2. This worked alright for tasks that already had Due Dates assigned, but if Column A was blank I'd get a high number in Column B. I also realized that tasks will continue to show as overdue even after I enter the completed-on date in Column C. Is there a relatively simple way to tackle this formula? Thanks in advance for suggestions. (I've attached an example with the column headings I want to use.)


Hi everyone....this is my first post here ....and not my last I believe!

My question I believe is easily solvable for you cracks of excel.
I have a worksheet with a list of rows (item#, date, price, etc). In the last column of this list I can put an x for some of the items.
On another worksheet or sheet, I need to autoamtically have a list of the items in the first list above, that have an X in the last columns.
I created an example on a worksheet attached just for you to understand.
I apreciate all the help I can get.
Thank you so much.

Sorry for the question. Normally I find answers to my excel questions by going through the help tab or by searching on Google. However, I don't even know what question to ask on this one!?!

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.

Thanks for taking the time to read this post. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks, doug


Hi,
I made a simple worksheet that we have been manually entering the time for employees, but there are too many errors (even with simple math). Can someone help me convert the time of ex: written 8-4:30 or 10-3 (meaning 8:00am to 4:30pm) where you have the total weekly hours? Right now I have a column for overtime. Is there a way to automatically calculate the over time also? The work day is 8-4:30 with a half hour lunch (lunch is not calculated into the hours, so you minus a half hour). 8-4:30 equals 8 hours. So, if a person works 8am to 6:30pm, how can I set it up where in the first row of time, I will type in 8-6:30pm. In the totals column to the far right, it will display 8 hours. In the (O.T.) column, it will display 2 hours.

This way, when I call in my payroll, I will have the total "regular" hours in one row and underneath, I will have the total overtime hours.

Or... does anyone have a better solution to keeping track of their hours?

Thanks!
Marty


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


Hello

I am trying to understand why I can not use Ctrl+F to find data in Column B, yet I can find the data in Column A.

I have a worksheet that in column A has numbers, in column B, the following formula "IF(ISNUMBER($A1),$A1,"").

Ctrl+F will find numbers in Column A, yet not in Column B. Why is this so? What can be done to ensure Ctrl+F works in Column B?


Hi All,

If I drag a formula to the right it adapts the column letter in the formula from A to column B, which is standard Excel functionality.

However, if I drag the formula to the right I want Excel to skip a column each time.

In other words:

=A1 ; = B1 ; = C1

Should be

=A1 ; = C1 ; = E1 etc...

Is there an easy trick to do this?

Thanks,

Michiel


I have a spreadsheet with thousands of columns. Due to poor planning on my part I need to insert a column between each existing column (e.g. I need to insert a column between the existing columns A and B, B and C, etc...). I would rather not have to do this manually thousands of times. Is there an easy way to do this?

Thanks in advance.


Hi there

I am trying to calculate our On Time Delivery. I want this as a simple percentage of jobs. I have got this running in the following way:

Column M - Estimated Delivery dates
Column N - Actual Delivery dates
Column O - =IF(SUM(M2-N2)>0,1,0)

Then I have calculated On Time Delivery as: =SUM((SUM(O2:O252))/(COUNTA(N2:N252)))

This seems to work fine. My problem is, if we enter a date in Estimated without a corresponding Actual date, the formula for Column O fills out anyway and improves our On Time Delivery Percentage. How can I set this up so that the formula doesn't calculate if there is no data in Column N?

Any help much appreciated

Thanks,

James
