Question about Business & Productivity Software

I am interested in learing as how to use the Formulas that are

predefined in MS office Excel. Please guide me. My knowledge

in maths is very poor. By learning these formulas i want to be a

better worker and more productive

Hi ansharmaaa

Once you are in the Excel Worksheet,

- In maths you would type 24+6; 3*4 etc. In Excel you do almost the same. If you type 4 in a cell A1 and type 5 in cell B1, and type A1+B1 preceded by an = sign in C1 you will get the answer in C1. Use the same principle for multiplication, =a1*b1 for division =a1/b1

- From the Tool bar, click on the Autosum (written as SIGMA, you will see few most commonly used functions, click each one of them and see an example of how to use it.

- Press F1 for help. Type in the search box formulas and click on the search button. Select various formulas and you will get examples of how to use them.

Ist I want to know what type of formulas u use in works

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.

Subtraction can be done in two ways in Office using the following formulas in the formula (fx) bar:

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

- =A1-A2
- =SUM(A1,-A2)

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

Step1. Start Microsoft Excel and open the file you want to change.
Step2. Double-click on the cell where you want the total to appear.
Step3. Press the = key on the keyboard. This tells Excel that you are entering a formula into the cell.
Step4. Enter the formula, then press Enter. Follow the steps below for an example.
Step5. Enter an opening parenthesis character: (.
Step6. Enter a cell name. For example: =(E2.
Step7. Press the + key.
Step8. Enter another cell name and a closing parenthesis character: ). For example: =(E2+E3).
Step9. Enter a minus sign and a third cell name. For example: =(E2+E3)-E4.
Step10. Press the Enter key to accept the formula. The cell will display the sum of the first two cells minus the third cell.
$('.Article .Steps .Image').each(function(i,e){
e = $(e);
e.find('img').error(function(){
$(this).unbind();
e.remove();
});
});

Tips & Warnings

Tips & Warnings

- Formulas are just equations. Instead of adding or subtracting numbers you are adding and subtracting the contents of a cell.
- Excel includes a number of predefined functions to use as well. You can combine the predefined functions into your own formula. (See "How to Use Provided Excel Formulas.")

Hello cbw@netzero.com,

The source code request would be for a program code, appropriate if you actually wrote the code for the Excel program, but if you are copywriting a set of formulas or an excel execution sequence, then you want to print your formula view for copywriting.Excel has a Formula View that shows the formulas on your worksheet rather than the results of those formulas. You toggle between Formula View and Normal View by pressing CTRL ~ on your keyboard. Just toggle to formula view and print your worksheet to see all of your formulas.

Good luck with your copywrite!

for example, cell A1 has date (01-01-2008) and cell A2 has current date (08-24-2008) and cell A3 shows total days, is that you want to know? if yes, apply formula as under...

cell A3......(properties set as General to show digits)................ =SUM(A2-A1)

cell A3......(properties set as General to show digits)................ =SUM(A2-A1)

Dear chidambar, thats usually because you've mistakenly tampered with a file or because you're putting an inapplicable value. Can you tell me what error is it exactly ?

you might like to re-install your MS excel after backing up your files. You might also like to repaire your ms office from your cd.

if that has helped you plz press fixya.

I shall be ever grateful and treat you as my guru
