What is formula to find percentage of females in my workplace?

      To get around this, you can calculate your numbers as percentages first. For example, if you type the formula =10/100 in cell A2, Excel will display the result as 0.1. If you then format that decimal as a percentage, the number will be displayed as 10%, as you 'd expect.Aug 2, 2011

MS excel issue

Using a time format for the data cells and data that looks like 12:00:10 AM the result you want is displayed no matter which formula is used. If the date portion of the data cell is not deleted then the result is 00:00:00. Delete the date portion of your data cells to get the result you want. (For example: When I enter 10 into a cell that is formated for time xx:xx:xx it shows 1/11/1904 12:00:00 AM in the formula bar and 00:00:00 in the cell. When I delete 1/11/1904 in the formula bar and show only the 12:00:10 the cell shows 00:00:10. Then it makes no difference which formula you use.)

When I create a formula in a cell, hit enter, I get #VALUE. How do I get the actual result to appear, instead of #VALUE?

#VALUE? is an error indication meaning that Excel can't process the formula. It is most likely the result of a bad cell reference in your formula, for example, you may be trying to perform mathematical operations on a cell that contains non-numeric text data.

Excel will not displaying the results of a trend array formula

Hi Griffnz,

Your "known Y's" or 'values' are in Column B. This is the first array in the Trend formula.

Your "known X's" or 'months' are in Column A. This is the second array in the trend formula.

The trend formula is supposed to give you a projection of what the rest of the values in Column B will be over the next few months (usually continuing cells in Column A). The cells you want these values to show up in represent the third array in the formula.

Thus, your formula should look more like: '=trend(B3:B14,A3:A14,A15:A18)'

However, your formula is leaving out The values in B and adding values from C - -- but there ARE no values in C. Apparently, C is where you want the values to appear. In that case, the C array would be the third array in your formula. This would look more like '=trend(B3:B14,A3:A14,C3:C14)

If this doesn't make sense, let me know.

The formula should go like this:
This one will give you the result of (ONLY overtime hours)*(hourly wage), and if there are no overtime hours the result is 0.
Now, if you need to multiply that result with say 1,5 or whatever - insert the number you need like this:

Percentages in Excel

No problem, Melinda, I am here to help!

If I understood correctly, your spreadsheet looks something like this:
1 Question Yes No Total
2 Is sky blue? 20 2 22
3 Is world round? etc.

In this case, the formula for % of Yes would be: =B2/D2. This would give you a decimal point result such as 0.909091. Now if you want to make this look like a percentage in your spreadsheet, just do the following:
1) click on the cell where you have the division formula
2) clck on Format in the top menu bar
3) click on Cells
4) click on the Number tab (if you're not already there)
5) click on Percentage in the list of categories
6) click OK

To boil it all down to a simple principle, percentages are created in Excel by dividing the two numbers using a formula with "/" in it, and then formatting the result to look like a percentage instead of a decimal.

I might have misunderstood your question, and I have an idea of what else you might have been asking (and another slightly more complicated solution for it!), so please let me know if my first answer didn't hit the mark!

Good Luck!

Getting the excel formula

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.
