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.

- All formulas begin with an equals sign
**(=)**. - 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. - 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. - 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. - 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.

Using a time format for the data cells and data that looks like 12:00:10 AM the result you want is displayed no matter which formula is used. If the date portion of the data cell is not deleted then the result is 00:00:00. Delete the date portion of your data cells to get the result you want. (For example: When I enter 10 into a cell that is formated for time xx:xx:xx it shows 1/11/1904 12:00:00 AM in the formula bar and 00:00:00 in the cell. When I delete 1/11/1904 in the formula bar and show only the 12:00:10 the cell shows 00:00:10. Then it makes no difference which formula you use.)

For example, you have three numbers from A1 to A3. On row A4, type =SUM(A1:A3).

That should do it. :)

That should do it. :)

With data in A1 to C1:
A2 =IF(A1>0,1,0)
B2 =IF(B1>0,1,0)
C2 =IF(C1>0,1,0)
A3 =SUM(A2:C2)

Add another colum, say D with result of B*C

Do a list of the different cat, and use sumif

For cat 0101 (in cell F1)

formula to put in G1

=sumif($A$1:$A$7000;F1;$D$1:$D$7000) where F1 contain 0101

expand the formula for other cat. (G2, G3, etc)

You can use a assistant to extract the distinct cat from A1:A7000, sorting them and copy the result in F (Menu Data-> Filter -> elaborate filter)

I think I have a way for you to get this done. Open a.xls and then open b.xls. In b.xls, create a formula in any cell that you want to be updated based on the data in a.xls. For example, if you want cell A1 in b.xls to stay updated with the data from cell A1 in a.xls, your formula in A1 of b.xls would look as follows:

[a.xls]Sheet1!$A$1

You can also create such formulas by following these steps:

1) Open a.xls and then open b.xls.

2) Place your cursor in the cell that you want to update dynamically in b.xls.

3) Enter the equals sign ("=").

4) Click on the "Window" menu in the top menu bar.

5) Select a.xls from the bottom of the menu items in the Window menu.

6) Click on the cell that contains the data that you want.

7) Hit Enter.

If you do all of these steps, you should find yourself back in b.xls with Excel having created the right formula for you. As a test, you can switch to a.xls and make a change in the source cell, and then you should be able to switch back to b.xls and see that same update.

Good Luck, hope this meets your need!
