I you have a row with 6 values you can get the minimum number from that area. Example:
A1: 6
A2: 8
A3: 3
A4: 9
A5: 2
A6: 7

in B2 we want to pick the smallest value in that group and multiply it with 60. This is what you type in B2

=min(A1:A6)*60

Yeah :)
that's all.... Good Luck :)

How are taxes, if any, calculated in a pro forma?


I assume that you are creating a pro-forma for others to use. Very simply, you could offer a cell that asks the user to nominate the applicable tax rate for their tax jurisdiction, or, if you know (or assume the value), place that into a cell then multiply the taxable amount by 1+the tax rate, ie I buy shoes for $4 and have a 10% tax rate. Multiply the price of the shoe by 1.04 and you have the final price, inclusive of taxes.

Usually all fees and charges are applied before the taxes are calculated., but check your local tax rules because some government levied charges may not be taxable.

I want to create a function in access to calculate a total. Where can I find a step by step guide?


If you already have a field where you want the total to be if you right click on the field and go to properties and find out the name of the field and also the 2 or more other fields that you want to add or multiply together then you can make the total field equal to the formula ie

if you have 3 fields

Field one = value1
Field two = value2
Field total = total

in design mode you would right click on the total field and go to properties and in the properties there should be a field where you can enter a formula.

in there you would enter something along the lines of

=value1.value + value2.value

Then when you have it normal view ie you open it, it should always add the values together and put the sum of them into the total field.

If you want an example database post back and I will create one.

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.

I'm not sure how to make cells work together mathematically?


In answer to your first question:
you need to type this in F12:
=D12*E12
That will take the value in cell D12 and multiply it by the value in E12. You can use the same layout for addition, subtraction, and division. For your second question type the following in cell J2:
=F2+i2

The "=" sign is important because it tells Excel that you are putting a function into the cell and to display the results, not what you actually typed.

The answer to your third question is a bit trickier but still easy to do.
Click on cell J131
Then click on the black arrow on the Autosum button, it looks like this:
03bb9f3.jpg and select sum. This will put a dotted-line box around the data directly above it. You can change what is selected by clicking on various cells, I suggest you play around with this. When you have the range of cells that you want summed up, just hit enter.

Multiply a value by a minimum amount


You need a cell to put these numbers first. Lets say A1 is your reference cell where the numbers are going to be input. B1 is the cell that you are going to see the calculation. Type the following formula in B1

=IF(A1<4,4*60,A1*60)

after doing this you can put any number in A1 and it will give you the calculation in B1 as the way you wanted.

Show the sum of the cells that matches with a given output


If the cell with the sum in it was created by a formula then you could use the formula to find out which cells were selected when creating it. for instance...

the sum of cells A1 - A9 would look like =sum(A1:A9)

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)

Blank cell help


You can use an IF statement:

IF(logical_test,value_if_true,value_if_false)

In your case, this would be:

=IF(B6<>"",SUM((B6+D6)-(B5+C6)),"")

This works as follows:

IF(B6<>"", : If B6 is not equal to nothing, ie. it equals something

SUM((B6+D6)-(B5+C6)), : Set the value as per the equation

"") : Otherwise set the value to nothing.

Of course, this only checks that there is a value in B6. Depending on that value (and that of the other cells) you could still get a negative result. The way to avoid this would be to use the following:

=IF((SUM((B6+D6)-(B5+C6))>0),SUM((B6+D6)-(B5+C6)),"")

A bit long winded, but basically it checks the result of the sum is greater than 0. If it is it displays it, if not it leaves the cell blank.

Hope this helps,

Matt

Excel 2002 formula


Try this:

=IF((E2<38),B2*14.3, IF((E2<44),B2*15.05, IF((E2<50),B2*15.8,0)))

Note that <38 is the same as <=37. Also, you can replace the 0 at the end with empty quotes "" for a blank cell.
