I'm calculating a range (15-25%) of a variable in another excel cell and want this new cell to answer with the range (.15*b27 to .25*b27), rather than a single answer. Is this possible?

Yes, Concatenate is the name of the formula.

ex:

=CONCATENATE(.15*B27," to ",.25*B27)

Which would return something like: "15.1254 to 25.5514"

If you want to limit the numbers in the returned data to whole numbers, you need to add the Floor formula.

ex.

=CONCATENATE(FLOOR(.15*B27,1)," to ",FLOOR(.25*B27,1))

That would return something like "15 to 25"

If you have a number in Cell A2 (say 100), and you put the amount of percentage increase or decrease in Cell A3 (say -10%), then put this formula into Cell A4 to calculate the answer:

=A2*(1+A3) , which then shows as the answer (90).

=A2*(1+A3) , which then shows as the answer (90).

Yes,

That is Select the Cells which you want to SUM and Press**Alt+=**

This will bring the total just below the selected cells.

Thanks

- Select the column. (click on top of the column it will select)
- Right Click and select Format Cells.
- Select
**Currency**in**Category**then press**OK**

That is Select the Cells which you want to SUM and Press

This will bring the total just below the selected cells.

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.

This is too complicated for a help site like this, you are going to want to consult an excel forum, or some excel professional in your area. This is far beyond the scope of what you can expect for $15, which I'm sure you now realize after 10 days of trying.

The IRR function is provided by Excel so you can calculate an
internal rate of return for a series of values. The IRR is the interest
rate accrued on an investment
consisting of payments and income that occur at the same regular
periods. In the values provided to the function, you enter payments you
make as negative values and income you receive as positive values.

For instance, let's say you are investing in your daughter's business, and she will make payments back to you annually over the course of four years. You are planning to invest $50,000, and you expect to receive $10,000 in the first year, $17,500 in the second year, $25,000 in the third, and $30,000 in the fourth.

Since the $50,000 is money you are paying out, it is entered in Excel as a negative value. The other values are entered as positive values. For instance, you could enter –50000 in cell D4, 10000 in cell D5, 17500 in cell D6, 25000 in cell D7, and 30000 in cell D8. To calculate the internal rate of return, you would use the following formula:

=IRR(D4:D8)

The function returns an IRR of 19.49%.

The ranges you use with the IRR function must include at least one payment and one receipt. If you get a #NUM error, and you have included payments and receipts in the range, then Excel needs more information to calculate the IRR. Specifically, you need to provide a "starting guess" for Excel to work with. For example:

=IRR(D4:D8, -5%)

This usage means that the IRR function starts calculating at –5%, and then recursively attempts to resolve the IRR based on the values in the range.

If you want to transfer your data into SAS, SPSS, or some other program,
follow these guidelines:

The cells in Row 1 should contain the column's eventual data set name. Each name should be a relatively short and unique acronym that clearly identifies the data. It should begin with a letter and contain only letters, numbers, or an underscore ( _ ) where spaces would naturally fall. Avoid using special characters such as $, &, @, in variable names. Since each row represents the values from one subject, the first column(s) should contain one or more variables that give each subject a unique identifier. They become especially important if you need to merge two or more data files.

In Excel, data formats are defined for a range of cells rather than for a complete column. For this reason it is important that each entire column, including cells with missing or uncollected data, have one, and only one, format. Actually, you do not need to format the entire column, only the portion you will eventually use. Highlight that portion and select the appropriate format from the Format/Cells option. Do not select formats that will enter commas, dollar signs, or other visual enhancements. Numeric, text, and date formats (e.g. mm/dd/yy is often a good choice) are probably the only formats you'll ever need.

The "Split" option (under the "Window" pull-down menu) keeps the row of variable names and the columns of identifiers in view, whatever range of cells in the worksheet you may need to review. First place the cursor at the most extreme upper left-hand corner where data entry begins (e.g., the intersection of Row 2 and the column in the upper left-hand corner where data appear) and then select "Split" from this menu. For any row or column of the worksheet you move to, you'll know exactly which variables you are observing (column names) and their associated ID values (rows).

For versions of Excel later than 4.0, one file can contain multiple worksheets. By default, the tabs at the bottom of these sheets are supplied names ("sheet1," "sheet2," etc.). You can change these names by clicking this space with your mouse and entering a new name. Use the same conventions for first-row variable names: use a short acronym of the page contents that begins with a letter, use only letters or numbers, and enter the underscore ( _ ) where a space naturally falls.

You may want to try =COUNT(A1:C9) for example. In brackets type the range of cells you want to count and excel will give you the number of cells that contain numbers.

You probably want to use the LINEST function for straight lines or LOGEST for exponential curves.

In Excel 2007, there are a few tricks. One is to select a range of cells and enter your formula there. If you do not select a range of cells all the variables (coefficentis, R2, errors, etc) will not be dislayed.

The other tricks is one must hit Ctrl+Shift+Enter to display the results.

Dear Madiha35,

I would recommend the use of the Table Function in Excel.

Here are the steps in Excel 2007, if this does not work for your version please add comment for me to reply to.

Conversely, If you would like the softcopy of the screenshots, I would be happy to email them to you.

Step 1: Enter your data into the worksheet.

Step 2: Create Table

Highlight the relevant data

On the insert tab, click on Table

Step 3: Verify Table range is correct, Click OK

Step 4: Select the cell you where you wish to Sum Data.

Click on Autosum.

Step 5: To Insert new data

Click on the sum row in the table, (Not the entire worksheet row)

Right click, Insert, Insert Table rows from above

Step 6: Enter new data in row

Step 7: Data is automatically calculated in formula.
