Highlight the cells you want to format. Move the mouse to the highlighted area, press the right mouse button and make sure the locked option is on under the protection tab.

Make sure protect sheet is enabled. To activate it, press the review under the menu options and select protect sheet (if its on sheet) or workbook for more than one sheet.

How do i subtract two cells and progress down a row by a day so the next day the formula subtracts the current day and previous day?


You have to start the sequence with a slightly different formula because there is no preceding value for Monday.

Excel 2007


  1. Select all cells (either press Ctrl+A or click on the small upper left square on the edge of the worksheet)
  2. In the menu bar, go to Format - Cells
  3. In the popup menu that opens, click on the Protection tab (it should be the last one on the menu)
  4. Deselect the small box tagged Locked
  5. Click on OK. Now all your cells can be overwritten, regardless the protection status of the worksheet.
  6. Select only the cells containing formulas that you want to hide (If you need to perform multiple selection, you can press and hold down the Ctrl key, while clicking on each cell you want to select)
  7. In the menu bar, go to Format - Cells
  8. In the popup menu that opens, click on the Protection tab
  9. Tick the small box tagged Hidden and the Locked box as well. If you don’t tick the Locked box, other users of your worksheet would be able to overwrite the formula cells, without even knowing that they contain formulas (as they become invisible following this operation).
  10. Click on OK
  11. In the menu bar, go to Tools - Protection - Protect Sheet
  12. If you want, you can input a password for unlocking the worksheet. This will prevent others from unlocking it. If you don’t want to do that, leave the password field blank and press OK.
  13. Now click on one of your cells containing formulas and look at the formula bar. It should be empty, although the formula is still there. The cell would remain locked, but it would be automatically updated when changing the content of its precedents relating to the contained formula.

HLOOKUP IN MS EXCEL


lookup value = value searched

table array = database

topmost row of lookup array must contain the data IDs and all IDs must be sorted in ascending order.

row index number = row number containing data to be shown; first row = 1

hlookup(x,tablearray,y) will look for x on the first row of the lookup table and return the value in the cell on the yth row

if formula cannot file exact x, it will look for the value closest to. but not greater than x

Hi,
Cool problem I use this to track stocks for the latest 5 days, 15 days and so on.

First I have a sheet that is titled "DataRecord" this has my individual data in columns and the days recorded in rows. This is a complete record or all recorded stock activity. This is where all the entrys are made in rows. I freeze window to make the column headings and the left most column(the date) always visible to prevent errors.

Next I have a sheet that is titled "L5DaysData' I have sevreral rows of data like avg, & what ever. and the latest 5 days data starts on line say 6. a typ. cell ='DataRecord'!B970
The next cell down has a value of ='DataRecord'!B971 and so and on until B974

My Graphs are built on these individual "L5 or 15 or 60 or90 day" sheets of data.

Next I make a macro that translates the last line of data down one row and deletes the row just above the earliest that I want to save on "L5DaysData" so it always shows only the latest 5 days of information.

All the information shown on that worksheet is the data for graphs or tables refering to the latest 5 days activity.
The graphs are automatically updated with the data each time the macro is run.

You can also use a formula to adjust the date column by adding a value of one to a specfic dated cell untill you reach Sat or Sun and add 3 or 2 to that date cell and translate that down a column and use a work sheet that records only the latest 3Mo. with macros that updates the information when you want it to.
Hope this helps.
Glad to be of assistance - please rate the solution I can learn from you. Thanks

Copying data from one sheet to another if two fileds match


Nope, sorry, although I am truly an expert at Excel formulas, I do not understand what you are trying to end up with in the final cell. We can compare a specified field with two spreadsheets - use named ranges and index/match lookup formulas. But then where you really lose me is in reading "a generic field" to find a match, and then placing what "data from another field" into what "other sheet" - ? See the confusion?

Best way to compare 2 given parameters would be to use a nested if formula, with index/match combo. Here is a simple Excel example of how such a formula could be structured:

Sample Data (columnar arangement):
A1: Part B1: Code C1: Price D1: Find Part E1: Find Code
A2: x B2: 11 C2: 5.00 D2: y E2: 12
A3: x B3: 12 C3: 6.00 D3: y E3: 11
A4: y B4: 11 C4: 7.00 D4: x E4: 12
A5: y B5: 12 C5: 8.00 D5: x E5: 11

To retrieve the price for part y with code 12 and return the value to cell F2, type the following formula in cell F2:
=INDEX($C$2:$C$5,MATCH(D2,IF($B$2:$B$5=E2,$A$2:$A$5),0))

Press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER to enter the formula as an array formula. The formula returns the value 8.00.

To take this one step further, with range names, this example will find one value at a specified location which matches a specific row header value and column header value. Let's say the range is home values (Range=HomeVal), Column A of HomeVal contains street addresses,"row headers" (Range=StAddress), and Row 1 contains dates of the various values that are in the body of the table, "column headers" (Range=Dates). To return the specific value from the range HomeVal to another sheet, where A1=address specified and A2=date specified:
=INDEX(HomeVal,(MATCH($A$1,StAddress,0)),(MATCH($A$2,Dates,0)))

Then make sure to press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER to enter the formula as an array formula - if you only hit enter, these types of formulas will not work properly.

Please post back if you need further help, with more details, otherwise thank you for using and rating FixYa!

Excel formula


Assuming that all of your data is in a single row number 4 and between columns N and PF

Try:
{=OFFSET(N4,0,MATCH(TODAY(),N4:PF4,0)+1,1,1)}

The MATCH function looks up the value of today() in the range N4 to PF4 and returns the number of columns offset from the beginning of the range. (The 0 here does an exact match)

The OFFSET function returns a value from a cell a specified number of columns from a reference cell, in this case N4, which is the first column that contains the search data. We need to add on to this value to skip the Interest column.

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
