Most companies do up their own formulas, using a spreadsheet program. After they get the results they are looking for, they either remove any guidelines or copy & paste the parts they want into a word processor document.

What are the formulas in grading the grades uisng microsoft excel


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.

  1. All formulas begin with an equals sign (=).
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

HOW TO COUNT THE OCCURRENCES OF A TEXT STRING


In the cell that you want the result to appear in, enter the appropriate formula from the following examples.
How to Count the Occurrences of a Number
Use this formula
=SUM(IF(range=number,1,0))
where range is the range that you want to search, and number is the number that you want to count.
NOTE: This formula must be entered as an array formula. To enter an array formula, press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER.
How to Count the Occurrences of a Text String
Method 1
Use this formula
=SUM(IF(range="text",1,0))
where range is the range that you want to search, and text is the text that you want to find (the text must be enclosed in quotation marks).
NOTE: The above formula must be entered as an array formula. To enter an array formula, press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER.
Method 2
Use the COUNTIF() function to count the occurrences of a text string. For example, use the formula
=COUNTIF(range,"text")
where range is the range of cells that you are evaluating, and text is the text string that you want to count instances of (note that text must be enclosed in quotation marks).
NOTE: This formula must be entered as an array formula. To enter an array formula, press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER.
Wildcard characters can be used within the COUNTIF function.
The asterisk character (*) represents more than one character. For example, to count all the cells in the range a1:a10 that contain an "x," you can use the following formula:
=COUNTIF(a1:a10,"*x*")
The question mark character (?) can also be used to represent one wildcard character -- for example, to count all cells in the range whose second character is the letter, such as "ax" or "bx."
=COUNTIF(a1:a10,"?x*")

Why don't formulas copy from cell to cell?


Step 1
Determine what formula is to be copied and to what location it is to be copied. Carefully consider the cells that are to be referenced in the formula and that they are indeed the cells that contain the information to be acted upon by this formula.
Step 2
Highlight a cell that has the formula in it and click the right mouse button. Select the "Copy" option.
Step 3
Move to the new destination cell for this formula, right click the mouse button and select "Paste."
Step 4
Check the first cell to make sure the correct calculation has been performed. If not, check the formula that appears in the cell that contains the result of the formula that was just copied. Make sure that the formula references the correct cells. If not, correct the formula and then copy the corrected formula to the rest of the cells that should have this formula applied to them.

The only time I have seen this not work is when the cells/pages are protected.

Note: 
Some formulas will require references to multiple pages or a workbook. Make sure that the absolute cell address is used for specific numbers and those that are to be applied to subsequent cell addresses are clearly denoted by the use of "$" in the cell address.

Sometimes when I use a formula in Excel 2003 it will not calculate - it is as if the formula does not exist. an additional problem is that when the formula works it will not calculate several columns if...


Make sure, when you entr a formula that you hit the ENTER key instead of just moving to tyour next cell. To have all numbers added or moved, use the"Special" application, or change the value. Such as -if you are working in text mode and you enter numbers, they are only numbers in text mode. They don't have a value. Correct the cells to reflect numbers. Right click, format cell - select what you want.

How do I say look at cell on left rather than the cell number


vlookup can only locate values within the lookup range and to the right of the lookup column. to address your concern, i'd advise you to create a dummy column within the lookup range (and hide it) and link it to the lookup column. this way, we won't need a (-) column index number.

Doubt about excel


My dear user,

Vlook up is asoftware tool in built used to look data simultaneously at a time. However, the situation depends on the data you enter- and look up.For example, if you enter a drug name " cough-act" you can have a look at it by just typing key word only with alphabet.

That depends on which version of Excel you are using.

you can communicate between the worksheets which are contained by one workbook (one excel-file).
Communicating between files cannot be done with formula's.

Excel Coordinates don't show up in Formula Bar


Heyo. I have had this problem before too. This procedure prevents the cells that contain the formula from being edited.
  1. Select the range of cells whose formulas you want to hide. You can also select the entire sheet.
  2. On the Format menu, click Cells, and then click the Protection tab.
  3. Select the Hidden check box.
  4. Click OK.
  5. On the Tools menu, point to Protection, and then click Protect Sheet.
  6. Make sure the Protect worksheet and contents of locked cells check box is selected.
Good Luck!
