Excel Formulas! Hi, I have a column with the following data: Eg. A1=2007T3P; A2=2008T4HD; A3=2006T1D and so on. Now I want to count the number of "P", "HD" and "D".

Excel Spreadsheet


It could have a virus or simply too much data in it or too much data linked to it. Try doing a copy of the whole spreadsheet, and then paste the data into a new spreadsheet. If it doesn't contain too many different formulas, try pasting only the values, and then replace the formulas manually. You might also try just deleting the links, if there are any. If this doesn't solve it, reply to this thread and let us know.

Hope this will FixYa!!!

BASIC EXCEL FORMULA


Are you looking to solve any particular problem?--- because there are a huge number of possible formulas in Excel.

However, in my opinion, the most commonly needed ones are addition, subtraction, division, multiplication, and summing.

Suppose you have the following numbers typed into your Excel spreadsheet:

columns: A B C D
rows
1 20 3
2 10 4
3 15 2
4 1 2 3


Then suppose you type in the following formulas (in the D column):

columns: A B C D
rows
1 20 3 =A1+B1
2 10 4 =A2-B2
3 15 2 =A3*B2
4 1 2 3 =sum(A4:C4)


Then the following answers will appear in the D column:

columns: A B C D
rows
1 20 3 23
2 10 4 6
3 15 2 30
4 1 2 3 6

HELP with macro config


Hi Hss Holdings,

The easiest way to do this is to use a formula called vlookup. You need to have the raw data some where in the workbook, but it can be a separate sheet. Put all the raw data in a table, make sure the account number is on the furthest left column, then start entering the formulas

vlookup(value_to_find, table_to_check, column_index_number, range_lookup(true/false))

value_to_find = the value you want to find on the left most column of the table
table_to_check = the table you want to find the data from
column_index_number = the column number of the data field you want to return into this cell, 1 = the left most column.
range_lookup = false for an exact match, true for the nearest match

Say the table is on sheet2 between A1 and E300

B15 is whatever you type, so no formula needed here
B12 =VLOOKUP(C1,Sheet2!A1:E300,2,FALSE)
G12 = B12 =VLOOKUP(C1,Sheet2!A1:E300,3,FALSE)
etc

Duplicacy in excel sheet


Since you are searching the data by the phone number , first select all the data in the spreadsheet and sort it in ascending order by the phone number.
Then, assuming you have 5 columns of data A through E, and the phone numbers are in column E, with row 1 occupied by column headings, use the following formula in cell F2=IF(E2=E1,"Duplicate",1)

Drag this formula down column F till the end of your data
Select the entire data and do an auto filter
In column F filter the data by Duplicate and delete all these rows
What remains should be unique data
