Try using the formula "sumif". It allows you to sum by category/name. Good luck! D.

Sounds like your issue can be solved readily with a pivot table.

If you give the columns of names a title like "NAME" and the number columns a name like "VALUE". All other columns should contain a unique name.

Then select the entire table, including the labels at the top ensuring that the range extends entirely over the column you need to sum the values of.

In Excel 2013, choose the INSERT menu and select the PIVOT TABLE command.

Insert the Pivot table into a new worksheet.

A new sheet will open with a strange-looking control panel on the right of the window.

Make sure that the box for NAME and VALUE (only) are checked

You will notice that Excel assumes that you want the SUM of the values for each NAME summed. The results are in the leftmost area of the worksheet.

If this works for you, please vote my answer as "helpful".

cells are referenced by column and row. columns use a letter reference and rows use a number reference. to reference pages use the page name. For example if you are entering a formula in a cell on a page named sheet2 and part of the information is located on the page named sheet1, you would use a reference as follows:

sheet1!C3 This reference is for the cell on the page named sheet1 in the third column and the third row.

Hope this helps

sheet1!C3 This reference is for the cell on the page named sheet1 in the third column and the third row.

To have the contents of the cell change from something you input into something else, you would need to put in a macro using VBA. You'll need someone who knows VBA to help with that.

OR... It is a lot easier to get similar results, if you are ok with using a few more cells to do it. The item# will remain where it was entered, and the product name will have to go in a different cell. In that case, you can use a lookup formula.

To do this, lets say your item# is entered in cell 'Sheet1'!C1, and you want the product_name to display in cell 'Sheet1'!D1. On another sheet (lets say sheet2) In cells 'Sheet2'!A1:B5 input the item#'s in the first column (column A1:A5) and input the matching product-names in column B1:B5. This is your lookup data. This sheet can be hidden if you want In cell 'Sheet1'!D1, use a vlookup formula that will look at the item# and find a match in the list, and display the product name for you. =vlookup('Sheet1'!C1,'Sheet2'!$A$1:$B$5,2,false)

This will display N/A# if the number can't be found.

The easiest way to do this is to use Excel spreadsheet.

This is what you need to do.

Create a label at the top of each column as detailed.

Add a employee to each row under Name of employee

Then against each employee add the data and the formula in the relevant cell under each column.

The first column - Name of the employee

2nd column - salary rate per hour

3rd column - hours worked

4th column - gross pay (formula = salary rate X hours worked)

5th column - tax deduction

6th column - other deductions

7th column - total deductions (formula = tax deduction + other deduction)

8th column - net pay (formula = gross pay - tax - total deductions)

At the last row you can include a total for Gross salary paid, total Tax collected etc.

Once you have setup this spread sheet make a copy of it and save it as a template.

You can then copy this template for each new financial year so you do not have to create a new one each year, you only need to make minor changes for new employees, rates of pay etc.

Another way to make a salary program is to use Access Database. You need more skills to do this, but it can provide greater reporting capabilities.

The best solution may be to re-define the named columns, or to add new names to multi-column arrays, then use the VLOOKUP function.

Note that the "indexed" named cells must be sorted by the index column.

Test (this is a 2 year old question)... Please ignore ths following. The plus symbol does not display.

Upper key plus symbol displays:

Right plus symbol on number pad displays:

[Shift] Right plus symbol on number pad displays:

[Alt] [4] [3] displays:

slash/slash/plus displays: //

slash/plus/slash displays: / /

Plus Plus Plus displays:

upper Plus Plus Plus displays:

Shift Right plus plus plus displays:

end of plus test.. thanks.

Hi Esd,

I'm assuming you meant 'Excel' since 'SUM' is the command you're looking for.

If your totaling Column D for rows 5 through 35, this is what you would need in the cell your total would be:

=SUM(D5:D35)

Also, when in doubt, Click on the '=' (equal sign) in the formula bar for a list of functions and help using them.

Any problems? Click the Askme button near my name.

Thanks for using Fixya.

That sounds like Excel. You may have to get someone locally to fix that problem.
