Hmm interesting one...assuming all the words are all listed in colum A, I would recommend using a combination of ISNUMBER, CONCATENATE & multiple MID.

As I found it hard to describe the 3 formula sets, I decided to post a dummy file with an example here using some of the words you suggested (click in the download file button, the XLS file should load inmediatly).
Note: I made the example valid only for word up to a maximum of 20 characters long, but if you have longer words, just repeat on more columns.


If the solution works for you, please rate my response :)

Cheers,
Ed

Plz tell me Sir/Madam. what is Hlookup And give me example


Hi Geetad11

This is Horizontal lookup , used to look up value in a 2 dimensional table .It searches for a value in the top row of a table or an array of values, and then returns a value in the same column from a row you specify in the table or array. Use HLOOKUP when your comparison values are located in a row across the top of a table of data, and you want to look down a specified number of rows. The H in HLOOKUP stands for "Horizontal."


Formulae Syntax

HLOOKUP(lookup_value,table_array,row_index_num,range_lookup)


Lookup_value is the value to be found in the first row of the table. Lookup_value can be a value, a reference, or a text string.

Table_array is a table of information in which data is looked up. Use a reference to a range or a range name.

  • The values in the first row of table_array can be text, numbers, or logical values.

  • If range_lookup is TRUE, the values in the first row of table_array must be placed in ascending order: ...-2, -1, 0, 1, 2,... , A-Z, FALSE, TRUE; otherwise, HLOOKUP may not give the correct value. If range_lookup is FALSE, table_array does not need to be sorted.

  • Uppercase and lowercase text are equivalent.

  • You can put values in ascending order, left to right, by selecting the values and then clicking Sort on the Data menu. Click Options, click Sort left to right, and then click OK. Under Sort by, click the row in the list, and then click Ascending.

Row_index_num is the row number in table_array from which the matching value will be returned. A row_index_num of 1 returns the first row value in table_array, a row_index_num of 2 returns the second row value in table_array, and so on. If row_index_num is less than 1, HLOOKUP returns the #VALUE! error value; if row_index_num is greater than the number of rows on table_array, HLOOKUP returns the #REF! error value.

Range_lookup is a logical value that specifies whether you want HLOOKUP to find an exact match or an approximate match. If TRUE or omitted, an approximate match is returned. In other words, if an exact match is not found, the next largest value that is less than lookup_value is returned. If FALSE, HLOOKUP will find an exact match. If one is not found, the error value #N/A is returned.

Remarks

  • If HLOOKUP can't find lookup_value, and range_lookup is TRUE, it uses the largest value that is less than lookup_value.
  • If lookup_value is smaller than the smallest value in the first row of table_array, HLOOKUP returns the #N/A error value.

Example
The example may be easier to understand if you copy it to a blank worksheet.ramsoft.jpg

Hello i want to use h LOOK UP


Hi !!

How to implement Hlookup function:
  • Select your data and sort it in ascending order
  • Then type '=HLOOKUP(lookup_value,table_array,row_index_num,range_lookup)'.
    Lookup_value is the value to be found in the first row of the table. Lookup_value can be a value, a reference, or a text string. Table_array is a table of information in which data is looked up. Use a reference to a range or a range name. The values in the first row of table_array can be text, numbers, or logical values. If range_lookup is TRUE, the values in the first row of table_array must be placed in ascending order: ...-2, -1, 0, 1, 2,... , A-Z, FALSE, TRUE; otherwise, HLOOKUP may not give the correct value.
    If range_lookup is FALSE, table_array does not need to be sorted. Uppercase and lowercase text are equivalent. You can put values in ascending order, left to right, by selecting the values and then clicking Sort on the Data menu. Click Options in the sort dialog box, click Sort left to right, and then click OK. Under Sort by, click the row in the list, and then click Ascending.
    Row_index_num is the row number in table_array from which the matching value will be returned. A row_index_num of 1 returns the first row value in table_array, a row_index_num of 2 returns the second row value in table_array, and so on. If row_index_num is less than 1, HLOOKUP returns the #VALUE! error value; if row_index_num is greater than the number of rows on table_array, HLOOKUP returns the #REF! error value.
    Range_lookup is a logical value that specifies whether you want HLOOKUP to find an exact match or an approximate match. If TRUE or omitted, an approximate match is returned. In other words, if an exact match is not found, the next largest value that is less than lookup_value is returned. If FALSE, HLOOKUP will find an exact match. If one is not found, the error value #N/A is returned.
  • If HLOOKUP can't find lookup_value, and range_lookup is TRUE, it uses the largest value that is less than lookup_value.
  • If lookup_value is smaller than the smallest value in the first row of table_array, HLOOKUP returns the #N/A error value.
  • If range_lookup is FALSE and lookup_value is text, you can use the wildcard characters, question mark (?) and asterisk (*), in lookup_value. A question mark matches any single character; an asterisk matches any sequence of characters. If you want to find an actual question mark or asterisk, type a tilde (~) before the character.
  • In the example in the Excel training video the sorted data represents the density of water at different temperatures. The left most column gives the temperature in degrees and the top column specifies the 'decimal' degrees
  • We looked up the density of water at 5.4 degrees celsius using the Hlookupfunction.


Still have problems, Check this video on the you tube.



Hope this would help,

Text within an IF formula


Use this formula in B1: =CHOOSE(A1,"GOOD","FAIR","BAD")
With this you must have 1, 2, or 3 in A1 or you will get a #VALUE error in B1.

Convert function


BAHTTEXT(number)

The above function will convert a number to text. If you are referring to "figure" as a number than this should work for you.

You may want to try the TEXT(value,format_text) fucntion too but you'll need to supply a number format.

Deleting file from Excel also from recently created documents.


Hi jv_oberg,

The recent documents area of excel is just a snapshot of what it last opened, it's not really linked that document to excel. Eventually, after you open enough documents it will fall off the list. However, if it something that you would like to change, you can

  1. Click on Office button, and then click on Word Options (in Word 2007) or Excel Options (in Excel 2007) or PowerPoint Options (in PowerPoint 2007) in the bottom of Office Menu.
  2. Go to the Advanced tab.
  3. Scroll down to the Display section.
  4. Set the value for Show this number of Recent Documents: to 0 (zero). no-of-recent-docs.jpg
  5. Click OK button.
  6. Repeat steps above again, and set back the value for the number of Recent Documents to show to its original default, i.e. 17. If you don’t want this particular Office 2007 application to remember any Recent Documents, you can leave the value at 0 and skip this step.


That will clear your recent documents.

Good Luck,

Mark

Maybe this is what you need:
=IF(A1="toilet",(B1*2),(IF(A1="bread",(B1*3),(IF(A1="star",(B1*4))))))
this is called "nested".
You can put nested if function maximum 7. (for more than 7, we should make another "trick")
if you put toilet in A1 then come the value B1*2
if you put bread in A1 then come the value B1*3
if you put star in A1 then come the value B1*4
Note: SUM(F16*0.3) is wrong. should be only (F16*0.3) or if you want to do sum --> SUM(F16:F20)

Function


VLOOKUP is to Searches for a value in the leftmost column of a table, and then returns a value in the same row from a column you specify in the table. Use VLOOKUP instead of HLOOKUP when your comparison values are located in a column to the left of the data you want to find. The V in VLOOKUP stands for "Vertical." Syntax VLOOKUP(lookup_value,table_array,col_index_num,range_lookup) Lookup_value is the value to be found in the first column of the array. Lookup_value can be a value, a reference, or a text string. Table_array is the table of information in which data is looked up. Use a reference to a range or a range name, such as Database or List. If range_lookup is TRUE, the values in the first column of table_array must be placed in ascending order: ..., -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, ..., A-Z, FALSE, TRUE; otherwise VLOOKUP may not give the correct value. If range_lookup is FALSE, table_array does not need to be sorted. You can put the values in ascending order by choosing the Sort command from the Data menu and selecting Ascending. The values in the first column of table_array can be text, numbers, or logical values. Uppercase and lowercase text are equivalent. Col_index_num is the column number in table_array from which the matching value must be returned. A col_index_num of 1 returns the value in the first column in table_array; a col_index_num of 2 returns the value in the second column in table_array, and so on. If col_index_num is less than 1, VLOOKUP returns the #VALUE! error value; if col_index_num is greater than the number of columns in table_array, VLOOKUP returns the #REF! error value. Range_lookup is a logical value that specifies whether you want VLOOKUP to find an exact match or an approximate match. If TRUE or omitted, an approximate match is returned. In other words, if an exact match is not found, the next largest value that is less than lookup_value is returned. If FALSE, VLOOKUP will find an exact match. If one is not found, the error value #N/A is returned. Remarks If VLOOKUP can't find lookup_value, and range_lookup is TRUE, it uses the largest value that is less than or equal to lookup_value. If lookup_value is smaller than the smallest value in the first column of table_array, VLOOKUP returns the #N/A error value. If VLOOKUP can't find lookup_value, and range_lookup is FALSE, VLOOKUP returns the #N/A value.
