Question about Reddy Heater-40,000 BTU Kerosene w/T'stat

I have data listed in several colums and need to create a formula to detail the last (most recent) 2nd last and 3rd last piece of data in the column.

I have used the following formula to display the last but cant edit this or create another formula to get the 2nd and 3rd last pieces of data.

=LOOKUP(2,1/(A:A<>0),A:A)

Thanks in advance

Jamie

There isn't enough information to make a formuls for you. I normally just go to where I want to put my formula, hit the Auto-Sum button and modify it to suite what I want. Make sure you don't have formatting set for auto or turned off for the cells you want to work with.

In a column adjacent to your data, enter the formula

=RIGHT(A1,4)

and copy down as far as you need to go. Then, sort on that column.

The easiest way to do this is to use Excel spreadsheet.

This is what you need to do.

Create a label at the top of each column as detailed.

Add a employee to each row under Name of employee

Then against each employee add the data and the formula in the relevant cell under each column.

The first column - Name of the employee

2nd column - salary rate per hour

3rd column - hours worked

4th column - gross pay (formula = salary rate X hours worked)

5th column - tax deduction

6th column - other deductions

7th column - total deductions (formula = tax deduction + other deduction)

8th column - net pay (formula = gross pay - tax - total deductions)

At the last row you can include a total for Gross salary paid, total Tax collected etc.

Once you have setup this spread sheet make a copy of it and save it as a template.

You can then copy this template for each new financial year so you do not have to create a new one each year, you only need to make minor changes for new employees, rates of pay etc.

Another way to make a salary program is to use Access Database. You need more skills to do this, but it can provide greater reporting capabilities.

Hi, Not sure if this is what you have tried:

1: Assuming each run is on a different column

Run1 Run2 Run3 Run4, etc...and the maxium lenght of each column is 9 values, but each colum has a different lenght of numbers..

Then you can use:

=MAX(COUNTIF(A2:A10,"<>0"),COUNTIF(B2:B10,"<>0"), {keep adding countif for each colum).

If all runs are on the same colum, then using Pivot tables is easier. If you have a copy of your data, please post it so that I can give you the exact formula ;)

=SUM(Cell1,Cell2,Cell3)/sold_price

Where Cell1, Cell2 and Cell3 are the cell references for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd loan fields and the sold price is the field reference for the cell that has the value for the sold price in it.

If you want the result of your formula in colum "B" to be appeared in 5 others column, simply put new formula in the other colum with syntax "=CELLID".

i.e:

put "=B1" (withoud quote) in cell C1, D1, E1, F1 and G1. do the same for the others cell, or just drag your cell to the bottom of page. it will copy your formula automatically.

If that not what you want, please update ypur question with more understandable phrase...thank you

You would have to combine the use of 2 functions. The Address and Match funbctions.

Lets say the number you want the address of is located in cell F1 and you have 2 columns of numbers. One colum in Column A and the other in column B. I will give you 2 formulas. The 1st one will return just the row number. The 2nd one will return the cell address.

Option 1: Lets say you just want to know the row reference of the number in cell F1. Place this formula in cell D1. =MATCH(F1,A1:A20)

If you have another column ytou want the row number of, place the formula in lets say cell D2 and change the column references from 'A' to 'B'.

Option 2: If you want the cell reference, place this formula in cell D1 and D2 instead of the firt formula.

=ADDRESS(MATCH(F1,A1:A20,0),1,1,TRUE)

And just like the first option, for the 2nd column, put the formula in D2 and change the column reference 'A' to 'B'.

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'm assuming you'd like to assign a numerical value to cardinal references (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc.).

Best way to do this is to create a quick lookup table on a separate sheet of the same .xls document. Down at the bottom of the page, click on Sheet2 and create a quick table where column A has 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc. and column B has your values.

Now click back to Sheet1 where your data is and in A2 put this formula:

=VLookup(A1, Sheet2!$A$1:$B$x, 2, FALSE)

Note: replace the lower case x in the formula above with the number of the last row of data in your lookup table on Sheet2.

You can copy and paste this formula down the column to calculate your other values.

Hope that helps!

Terry

The solution I've used in similar situations is to create a 3rd column C with the items in column A and column B concatenated.

C2 = A2 & B2

C3 = A3 & B3

C4 = A4 & B4

etc.

Then use COUNTIF function: =COUNTIF(C:C,"FredRed Ball")

Hope this helps.

at first select the 1st page data and select data-subtotal from the upper menu list.

then enter the formula as =sum(1stpageSubTotal,2ndpageSubTotal,3rdpageSubTotal) then Press Enter.

If not solved pls get me that data as to reference.

thanks

then enter the formula as =sum(1stpageSubTotal,2ndpageSubTotal,3rdpageSubTotal) then Press Enter.
