I don't think you can sum or count a range that crosses sheets. :)

### What are the formulas in grading the grades uisng microsoft excel

Formulas are used to specify calculations based on values in designated cells. Excel supports basic calculations as well as statistical, trigonometric and other specialized functions.

Formulas used in Excel must follow a certain syntax.

1. All formulas begin with an equals sign (=).
2. Some formulas use operands such as +,-, *,/ for addition, subtraction, multiplication or division.
For example, the formula =A1+A2+A3 would add the contents of cells A1, A2 and A3.
3. Other formulas refer to different functions such as SUM, AVERAGE and others.
For example, the formula =SUM(A1:A3) would add the contents for the range A1 through A3.
4. Formulas can be combined with operands.
For example, the formula =10*SUM(A1:A3) would add the contents cells A1 through A3 and multiply them by 10.
5. Functions can be nested within each other.
For example, the formula =SQRT(10*SUM(A1:A3)) would take the square root of ten times the sum of cells A1 through A3. When functions are nested, it is important that the number of left parentheses match the number of right parentheses.

### HOW TO COUNT THE OCCURRENCES OF A TEXT STRING

In the cell that you want the result to appear in, enter the appropriate formula from the following examples.
How to Count the Occurrences of a Number
Use this formula
=SUM(IF(range=number,1,0))
where range is the range that you want to search, and number is the number that you want to count.
NOTE: This formula must be entered as an array formula. To enter an array formula, press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER.
How to Count the Occurrences of a Text String
Method 1
Use this formula
=SUM(IF(range="text",1,0))
where range is the range that you want to search, and text is the text that you want to find (the text must be enclosed in quotation marks).
NOTE: The above formula must be entered as an array formula. To enter an array formula, press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER.
Method 2
Use the COUNTIF() function to count the occurrences of a text string. For example, use the formula
=COUNTIF(range,"text")
where range is the range of cells that you are evaluating, and text is the text string that you want to count instances of (note that text must be enclosed in quotation marks).
NOTE: This formula must be entered as an array formula. To enter an array formula, press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER.
Wildcard characters can be used within the COUNTIF function.
The asterisk character (*) represents more than one character. For example, to count all the cells in the range a1:a10 that contain an "x," you can use the following formula:
=COUNTIF(a1:a10,"*x*")
The question mark character (?) can also be used to represent one wildcard character -- for example, to count all cells in the range whose second character is the letter, such as "ax" or "bx."
=COUNTIF(a1:a10,"?x*")

### Ms-office

Subtraction can be done in two ways in Office using the following formulas in the formula (fx) bar:
1. =A1-A2
2. =SUM(A1,-A2)
The above formulas refer to cell reference A2 subtracted from A1. As usual, you can use number values instead of cell references.

The SUM formula subtracts by changing the sign of the reference. Remember the sign rules, and thus - -x is in effect +x.

### Hi, how do I find the 1st 2 letters in a cell and reference it to another. ie A1: 0209JJP001. I thus want to find "02" which is Feb (this would be a vlookup I assume). Therefore the 1st 2 letters...

To reference the first letters in a cell, use the left function. The syntax is =left(cell,#). So, to return the left two letters from cell A1, you use =left(a1,2). You can put that in a cell or incorporate it into some functions.

### 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:

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.

### Sumproduct or conditional sumif with multiple criteria in vba code...

yes, you can do multiple criteria query but with a matrix formula. you may look it up. nonetheless, here is how one would look like:

{=sum(if(range1=A x range2=B x range3=C, sum range))} note that x (multiplication) is used to denote intersection of the criteria

initially, you'll enter it as:
=sum(if(range1=A x range2=B x range3=C, sum range))

then, edit the cell (F2) and press ctrl+shift+enter for the brackets { } to appear.

### Excel and the AVERAGE function

Here is one way:

In this example, my numbers are in cells a1 through a4. My average is computed with the formula:

=SUM(A1:A4)/COUNTIF(A1:A4,"<>0")

I'm summing the range of numbers and dividing that by the count of nonzero numbers. With this formula, you'll get an error if there are no nonzero numbers.

### Using if and then to add values to a cell

Try using the SUMIF function for one condition or multiple conditions. Use the SUMIF worksheet function to create a total value for one range based on a value in another range. For example, for every cell in the rage B5:B25 that contains the value "Northwind", the following formula calculates the total for the corresponding cells in the range F5:F25. Formula:
=sumif(B5:B25,"Northwind",F5:F25)

Here are SUMIF functions for multiple conditions.

=sum(if((B5:B25="Northwind")*(C5:C25="Western"),F5:F25))

=sum(if((B5:B25="Northwind")+(C5:C25="Western"),F5:F25))

=sum(if(B5:B25="Northwind",IF(C5:C25="Western"),1,0)))

Also check your help for SUMIF functions.
