Hi, all  I have been banging my head on the desk over this one...it's gotta be so simple, right? Have searched online, and on Mr. Excel, but still can't get this right.
I need a formula in cell L3 that says "IF cell K3 is greater than 25 but less than 30, K3, otherwise, blank." Cell K3 currently contains the value 30. My formula in L3 currently is =IF(K3>25,K3,IF(K3

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

Hi there
Please can someone help me. How do I create an IF formula to find cells where the number of hours in one cell is more than the number of hours in another cell? eg one cell has 0.40 hrs and another has 02.25 hours  I want have an IF formula to say where 02.25hrs > 0.40 then type "FAILED" but I cant overcome the greater than problem on the hours which is giving me the wrong answer.

Hi Everyone,
I have searched online and in help but can't seem to find the best solution...
I have values like 00904BB303D6 that need to become: 00:90:4B:B3:03:D6 (the value is always 12 digits, and the : needs to appear every two digits.) Is there a formula that can easily do this for me? Your suggestions are greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!!!!

Good afternoon!
I'm working with Excel 2003 sp 3 on Windows xp.
I have been banging my head trying to jar loose the formula to calculate man days where 1 equals 8 hours. I have one that was given to me by a coworker:
=INT(Q3/8)+(((Q3/8)(INT(Q3/8)))*0.8)
That calculates man days from total hours. I need a formula that will total man days and return the man day answer. Example:
weekending 12/25 = 16.2 which is 16 man days and 2 hours
weekending 1/1 = 24.7 which is 24 man days and 7 hours
Total = 41 man days and 1 hour
I have also been asked if there was a way for a number to be entered into a spreadsheet and automatically put in order without a macro or "pushing a button".
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
Happy New Year!

I often use if statements to return empty cells, for example:
=IF(a1=0,"ERROR","")
The trailing "" returns an empty cell. The problem is, it is not TRULY empty. If I fill that formula down, I cannot, for example, jump from one "ERROR" cell to the next by hitting Ctrl arrowdown because it seems to think that these empty cells have contents.
Is there a way to designate, in such a formula as above, to return a TRULY empty cell?
Thanks

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?

is it possible to put two formulasinto one cell?
On the attached timesheet there are columns IN, OUT, IN,OUT
The lunch time is worked out by deducting 'C8 from C9' and this works fine when all 'IN, OUT' cells are filled in but for some reason when just the first two cells are filled in it gives a 12 hour answer.
looking at cell 'C11 ' in the attached worksheet, I currently have the formula
=IF(C13=0,","SUM(C9C8)) The reason for this is to make it look tidy by having blank cells until a calculation is needed,, My problem is, If someone just comes in for the morning one day for instance 8am to 12 noon then they won't have lunch, but C11 will show 12:00
Can I put another formula into C11 to tell it not to deduct C8 from C9 until a time is put into C9.
The following is the sort of thing (many variations) I have been trying but because I'm hopeless at formulas I'm not having any success
Thanks

I have cells in a column, some colored yellow, some not. I am trying to use
the SUMIF function to sum only the cells in the range that are colored. Can
this be done? Can I enter something in the "criteria" part of the formula
that can do this?
=SUMIF(D3:D13,"criteria",D3:D13)
I also tried to use the CELL function's color feature, but I couldn't get it
to work right. I don't know how to get Excel to recognize if a cell is
colored in a formula.
=CELL("color",cell)
It might just be that I don't know what this means in Help:
"color" > 1 if the cell is formatted in color for negative values;
otherwise returns 0 (zero).
Can anyone help?

From limited experience I know that excel calculates dates via serial numbers.
I have formulas to add a number of days to a cell containing an entered date and display the resulting new date (ie. 03/01/2011 (c34)+11 = 03/12/2011)
I am seeking to leave resulting formula cell blank until a date is entered in the input cell. Currently when the input cell is empty the formula cell obviously displays 1/11/1900 using the above example.
What conditional format would achieve leaving the formula cell blank until date data in entered into the source cell?
Hopefully a simpler question for your experience level than mine.

I have a coworker's file that he is having trouble with. He is using Excel 2000 SP3. When copying a cell with a formula in it of "=D6+C6" and pasting it into the next cell down, it will display the same value in the cell as the calculated value from above, but has the correct formula displayed in the formula bar of "=D7+C7".
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?

Hi everyone, this is my first post here. I consider myself a more advanced Excel user and can navigate my way around fairly well. I've written a spreadsheet and am wondering if there is a way to permit data entry in a cell, contingent upon another cell being populated.
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....

I am trying to sum all numbers <0 using the SUMIF formula in Excel 2003.
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 Excel there is a difference between cells that are blank (= "") and that are empty. You can make blank cells empty by selecting them and pressing the delete key, but I need a fast way to do this on all blank cells in a large worksheet. The only way I have found is with a VBA macro that loops through every cell, tests for '.Value = "" ' and then uses the '.Clear()' function, but doing this on 30 columns x 10000 rows is far too slow. Any solutions?
(The reason I need to do this is for importing into Access, the database treats empty cells as NULL which is what I want. Blank (but not empty) cells screw the import process up.)

Hi there,
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,
pp

Hi everyone,
I found an excellent macro this morning that allows the user to filter a pivot table based on the value found in a specific cell. This cell essentially acts as a search bar, allowing the user to type in what they are looking for rather than select it from a dropdown list.
The macro works perfectly for my purposes except in one regard: I can no longer perform a "show all" filter. If I leave the "search bar" cell blank, the pivot table shows nothing. I'm sure that there is an easy fix for this but I'm still learning the basics of how to write and use macros. How can I change the code so that when I leave the cell blank, the pivot table shows all? The search bar cell is D2.
Thanks for your time!

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?

Hi, hope someone can assist, i want to add some arrow syimbols in to a formula, so that when the formula works out it shows an up arrow for higher or a down arrow for lower, i am using this formula at the moment because i dont know any better but it works, putting in the word up or down:
I have entered the following formula in to a cell: =IF(S3<R3,"DOWN","UP") it works however i want to replace the word Down and up with the relevant arrows symbol. How do i do this?

Here's my formula... =SUM(S7)T5
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.

Is it possible to change the color of text using a formula, such as an IF
statement? What I have in mind is something like this (stated simply): If
cells B9 or N9 or Z9 or AL9 are blank, do nothing, else color text in cell S4
red.

I am trying to figure out how to write a formula to figure out production cycle time.
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
