Problem coming in subtraction

You just have to use the subtraction formula. The formula is as follows:

=A1 - A2

Where A1 and A2 are cells that contain the data that you would like subtracted. If you want just two numbers subtracted you can type them directly:

=20 - 10

for more information look at the subtraction section of the following link.

I am unable to define values between the words

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 :)

Are you looking to solve any particular problem?--- because there are a huge number of possible formulas in Excel.

However, in my opinion, the most commonly needed ones are addition, subtraction, division, multiplication, and summing.

Suppose you have the following numbers typed into your Excel spreadsheet:

columns: A B C D
1 20 3
2 10 4
3 15 2
4 1 2 3

Then suppose you type in the following formulas (in the D column):

columns: A B C D
1 20 3 =A1+B1
2 10 4 =A2-B2
3 15 2 =A3*B2
4 1 2 3 =sum(A4:C4)

Then the following answers will appear in the D column:

columns: A B C D
1 20 3 23
2 10 4 6
3 15 2 30
4 1 2 3 6
