Hi,

Here is an example of what I want to do (Excel 2004 Mac).

If I put the number 1 in a cell (A1) I want the word GOOD to appear in cell (B1), if I put the number 2 in A1 I want the word FAIR to appear in B1 and if I put 3 in A1 I want the word BAD to appear in B1.

I tried something like this :

=IF(G3=1;"GOOD)+IF(G3=2;"FAIR")+IF(G3=3;"BAD")

but a #VALUE appears in B1.

If anyone can help me?

Thanks in advance,

Jacko

Use this formula in B1: =CHOOSE(A1,"GOOD","FAIR","BAD")

With this you must have 1, 2, or 3 in A1 or you will get a #VALUE error in B1.

I came up with this:

=IF(A1=1,"Good",IF(A2=2,"Fair",IF(A3=3,"Bad","Wrong")))

Works fine for me.

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.

In the cell that you
want the result to appear in, enter the appropriate formula from the following
examples.

How to Count the Occurrences of a Number

Use this formula

=SUM(IF(range=number,1,0))

where range is the range that you want to search, and number is the number that you want to count.

NOTE: This formula must be entered as an array formula. To enter an array formula, press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER.

How to Count the Occurrences of a Text String

Method 1

Use this formula

=SUM(IF(range="text",1,0))

where range is the range that you want to search, and text is the text that you want to find (the text must be enclosed in quotation marks).

NOTE: The above formula must be entered as an array formula. To enter an array formula, press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER.

Method 2

Use the COUNTIF() function to count the occurrences of a text string. For example, use the formula

=COUNTIF(range,"text")

where range is the range of cells that you are evaluating, and text is the text string that you want to count instances of (note that text must be enclosed in quotation marks).

NOTE: This formula must be entered as an array formula. To enter an array formula, press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER.

Wildcard characters can be used within the COUNTIF function.

The asterisk character (*) represents more than one character. For example, to count all the cells in the range a1:a10 that contain an "x," you can use the following formula:

=COUNTIF(a1:a10,"*x*")

The question mark character (?) can also be used to represent one wildcard character -- for example, to count all cells in the range whose second character is the letter, such as "ax" or "bx."

=COUNTIF(a1:a10,"?x*")

For example, you have three numbers from A1 to A3. On row A4, type =SUM(A1:A3).

That should do it. :)

That should do it. :)

In A1, put a random value of d as 0.1. Then in B1, put your equation 5*d^4 - 10.29*d^(-1.333), wherein refer d as A1. Then use goal seek function on Tools Menu. First "Set cell" as B1, "To value" as 0.124 and "By Changing Cell" as A1. Excel will do the Trial & Error and will give you the answer in Cell A1.

Assumption:

**sheet2** cell **a1** like this:

**=IF(Sheet1!e1<>"",Sheet1!b1,"")**

The formula will check**sheet1 **cell **e1**, if there is any number or text put in there, the value of **Sheet1 **cell **b1 **will be copied to **sheet2 **cell **a1**. If you don't supply any number or text in **sheet1** cell **e1**, there's nothing will appeared in **sheet2 **cell **a1**.

If you want some text will display when there's no value in**sheet1** cell **e1 **just change the formula like this:

**=IF(Sheet1!e1<>"",Sheet1!b1,"NONE")**

You can modify it as your like. Just copy the formula to another row in**sheet2 **column **a**.

P.S.: If this information was helpful, please rate this solution.

- we work on
**sheet1**, cell**b1**as description of material and cell**e1**as quantity figure. - we will put the transfer the text in cell
**b1**to**sheet2**cell**a1**if you have entered some value in**sheet1**cell**e1.**Otherwise**sheet2**cell**a1**will left empty or display some text as**"NONE"**or as you wish.

this is done through formulas. You write them in relationship to one another. Say you put a value into B1 then you write a formula for c2 like =SUM(A1/2)which means the sum of A1 divided by 2. or you can say make a formula that is like this =SUM(A1/C1) which means the value of A1 divided by the value of C1.

No tmaking promises but try pushing F9 and for future make sure the Automatic caluculation is turned on.

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.

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.

Yes, its possible by designing a formula in excel.
