Re: microsoft excel

Because otherwise Excel will interprate the entry as text.

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.

use if statement

=IF(AND(OR(A1="clark",A1="skamania",A1="clickitat"),B1="WA"),1,0)

where A1=T2 and B1=U2

=IF(AND(OR(A1="clark",A1="skamania",A1="clickitat"),B1="WA"),1,0)

where A1=T2 and B1=U2

You need to change the =IF(AND to =IF(OR

Using AND is saying both conditions must be true. Using OR is saying either condition 1 or 2 need to be true

Enter data the number 10 on cell A1. Enter data the number 20 on cell B2. Mouse click on cell C3. Press equal sign, press left arrow, press *, press left arrow twice, press enter. Mouse click on cell C3. You'll see your formula on the address bar. Hope this helps.

The formula in both versions is the same:

=countif(range,value)

i.e. The below formula will increase its count by one if any of the 18 cells it's checking are equal to 1.

=countif(A1:B9,1)

=countif(range,value)

i.e. The below formula will increase its count by one if any of the 18 cells it's checking are equal to 1.

=countif(A1:B9,1)

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.")

Any formula in Excel starts with the equals sign ("="). This is how Excel distinguishes between formulas and literal values. Knowing this, you can create lots of formulas using the usual operators of +, -, * and / for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, respectively. Please see the examples below.

Add 1 + 1: =1+1

Add the contents of cell A1 to the contents of cell B1: =A1+B1

Subtract 2 - 1: =2-1

Add the contents of cell A1 from the contents of cell B1: =B1-A1

Multiply 1 times 2: =1*2

Multiply the contents of cell A1 times the contents of cell B1: =A1*B1

I hope this resolves the question. If not, please let me know.

Suppose the value for $ is stored in cell A3. Your formula would look like this: =(A3+A3*0.25)*1.5

The equals sign at the beginning of the formula is necessary. And if you want the result to be formatted as currency, you can do so by right-clicking the cell or column, format cell, number tab, choose currency.
