A corrupt excel spreadsheet can be repaired by using Open and Repair technique. It is a built-in repair function that opens a corrupt excel file forcefully.

*OpenMS Excel >pressCtrl+O >locate corrupt excel spreadsheet and select it.

*Click on the arrow shown besideOpenbutton>selectOpen and Repair.

It will take just a few seconds to be completed and selected file will be opened, if possible.

Or if this doesn't work, one may take help of a third-party

For example Excel Fix Toolbox

Hello this is Baris,

If you forget about the numbers and start naming your cells you can figure out your own formulas... Example :)

You buy apples, and you pay $2 per piece

in this case you have 2 numbers to find out how much you will pay.

price per apple

quantity

you have 3 apples you pay 6 dollars very simple right. 2 times 3.

Same thing in excel but this time you will just say price times quantity and excel will do the calculation for you.

Lets name your cells

Type in A1 Price

Type in B1 Quantity

Type in C1 Cost

Now, Column C is your calculation area.

Type in A2 2 (price for apples)

Type in B2 3 (quantity of apples)

Type in C2 =A2*C2 (price times quantity)

Now on, you don't have to calculate anything. You can change you price and quantity, cost will change by itself. Because the value in that cell is now related to other values in A2 and B2. I hope this gives you a starting point.

I would suggest to protect the sheet first off all. Make sure you write your password down so you won't lose it. Second, try to sort your data A-->Z it'll make your job much easier.

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)

- Click the
**Microsoft Office Button**, click**Excel Options**, and then click the**Formulas**category. - In the
**Calculation options**section, select the**Enable iterative calculation**check box. - To set the maximum number of times that Excel will recalculate, type the number of iterations in the
**Maximum Iterations**box. The higher the number of iterations, the more time that Excel needs to calculate a worksheet. - To set the maximum amount of change you will accept between calculation results, type the amount in the
**Maximum Change**box. The smaller the number, the more accurate the result and the more time that Excel needs to calculate a worksheet.

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.

sorry, I need a bit more information, because if as you say, column d contains text data such as RO, MO etc, then Excel can't perform a calculation such as MO*70 ?

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
