Hello gurus!

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!!


HELP!!

I need to know the formula (if there is one) for Excel to figure all the possible combinations of a given set of numbers that will add up to a specified sum.

In other words, if I give the following numbers 1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4, 5, 5, 6, 7, 7 - I want Excel to figure all the possible combinations that will add up to 23, and also SHOW ME those combinations, and not just HOW MANY combinations there are.

i.e. one possible combination is 2, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7

Can this be done? What is the formula? I'm having a hard time figuring it out!!

Desperately,
Jenny


I need help writing a formula to add a column of numbers until a value is reached, then start over adding numbers starting at the next cell after the value is reached.

Thanks for any help.

Hi there, I have a string of numbers and I would like to add zeros to the end of it.

For example my numbers are formatted like this: 1234 and I would like to add zeros to the end so it looks like this: 123400 (no decimal).

I would do it manually but I have a column of over 2000 different numbers.

Thanks for your help, you guys are great!


I have looked over the forums for information on how to do this, and can not find anything. I have used conditional formatting to identify duplicates in my spreadsheet. I have a unique user ID, which combines the first and last name fields into one. However, in 10,000 there are a number of John Smiths, Joe Adams, etc. With smaller lists, we search manually, and then add a 1, 2, 3, etc to each duplicate to create a unique value for the User ID.

My question is:

Is there a way to check for duplicates, and then automatically add numbers to the duplicate values to make them unique? If so, how can this be done?

So that you will have this:

JohnSmith
JohnSmith2
JohnSmith3
JaneDoe
JaneDoe2
JohnAdams
JohnAdams2
JohnAdams3
JohnAdams4

I think I have done a good job in illustrating what I would like to be able to do, but if there is still something that is unclear, I will post whatever clarification is needed.

Thank you in advance for your help!!


Hello,

I'm a bit of a newbie with Excel, but...

I have several cells with data that contain both letters and numbers (4H, 8V, 4FH, etc.) What I want to do is remove only the text characters from these cells, and add the remaining number values together among a series of cells with this data type.

If your answer involves using a macro or VB, please provide a link on how to use the formula. I've never used a macro or VB.

Thanks.


Hi folks,

Hoping someone can help me quickly as I'm pulling my hair out and have a deadline getting too close.

Been trailing the net and this board but can't work out how to do a simple variance.

How do I work out the difference between two numbers - including negatives.

If the numbers are all positive, it's fine as it's simply a case of A - B = C which is your difference. However, that doesn't work if B is negative.

I need a formula that would give the following:

First Number / Second Number / Difference
1 / 5 / 4
1 / -5 / -6
-1 / 5 / 6
-1 / -5 / -4
-5 / -1 / 4

Hopefully there's a simple function I've been missing.

Thanks in advance, R


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.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Hello everyone, I am new to this forum and have been using excel for about 3 years. I have learned alot but still can not figure out how to make numbers add up in one box like a running total. Meaning, If I have a list and in the list is one cell for each item say like cell a1 is for a can of coke and cell a2 is for a car tire and so on,and i want to keep a running total by adding a number to cell a1 or a2 like say "3 i.e. 3 tires or cans of coke" and later that day i come back and need to add 2 more ......so i want to be able to just click on the cell a1 or a2 and enter the number 2 and the cell would add the number in it to the number im adding to it to show a result of 5 tires or whatever. I am sorry If i am not asking the question in an understandable manor but its the best way I can think to ask it.lol anyways, any help would be appreciated, Thanks in advance.

First time in this forum. Hi all. I have a challenging question, is there a way either by VBA or manually (preferably both, if possible) to actually unite the X amount of numbers that are in a cell given the contents is alphanumeric? I'll give you the following examples to see if you can understand what I' referring to?

DATA output should be
asd67,h876 --------> 67876
2,3,ujdj5&34 -------> 23534
909k86m34 --------> 9098634

Hope this makes sense?


Hi Forum,

I need this to be shown as follows depending on the no of itmes and no of group no=2 in this case...

i've been trying to figure this out on my own but seem to be hitting road blocks.

i have a column of numbers that we extracted from a database as whole numbers. for instance, 30 should be .30 and 100 should be 1.00. when i try to increase or decrease the decimal point it doesn't allow me to convert it to those positions.

would any one have a tip of how i can easily convert this? there are over 2000 entries in my excel spreadsheet so to do it manually would take a lot of time/effort.

thank you!


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

I know this question has been asked a bajillion times, so I apologize for the redundancy.

I am working with an Excel spreadsheet and saving it as a .csv file in order to upload to an application that parses out the .csv data as transactions. The system requires .csv files, so this is how I need to save my doc (with this extension). I have been successful at preventing Excel from coverting that long number into scientific format. I have saved as a TXT file, pasted the longer number and it displays correctly. That is all good. But I have to save as a .csv. So if I do that, close the Excel window, and then open again (as the .csv file), the numbers are back to being displayed in scientific format. I have tried creating an Excel doc from scratch and entering text in Text format, to see if this created a cleaner file. But again, the second I save as .csv, close the window and then open that file up again, that dang scientific format is back.

Does anyone have any idea of how to work around this? Once I have successfully gotten the numbers to display as the long-chain number, how can I get them to "stick" so that they don't revert back to scientific format when I reopen the file?

Thanks so much for your help!


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?


I want to generate all possible combinations of 11 combination 4. I know there are 330 possible combinations but how can i let excel generate all the combinations. 1-11 combination 4.

After you filter out data, how to you re-number the row numbers so they are, again, consecutive?


I was wondering if anyone could help me out please?!?!

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

Is it possible to have numbers added to the same cell and have excel continue
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?



Thought I'd append my experience of the above problem - you can find all sorts of references to it everywhere.

My problem was that a userform defined with Excel at work (containing DT pickers) gave the message in the title when opening it at home. I had a light-bulb moment and wondered whether there was a difference in the version numbers for MSCOMCT2.OCX at work and at home. Turned out the work version was newer. I then copied the MSCOMCT2.* files from work, made a backup of them at home and copied those from work to my C-drive (Windows XP - c:\windows\system32\ ).

No luck. I then rebooted the machine - still no luck.
Then, finally I unregistered the old DLL via
Code:

regsvr32 /u c:\windows\system32\MSCOMCT2.OCX


(not sure if this was necessary, but I didn't think it could hurt). Reregistered the DLL via
Code:

regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\MSCOMCT2.OCX


and what do you know - it worked.

Summa summarum - it could be an idea to check whether the two machines have different version numbers for the MSCOMCT2.OCX files.


I have a problem: I can't show some rows after they've been hidden with a macro. I tryed the "select all / unhide", but it doesn't work.

I noticed the row numbers are all blue now. What does it mean? (This could be the answer..:P)


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.
