Best thing to do is go get a basic book on excel and learn the basics. I'm not sure exactly what you are trying to set up, but if it is a simple invoice type thing then you could go to microsoft and download templates to use already set up for you. You can even put in your own logos.

I am assuming that you want your date column to run daily - not updating itself with todays date over previous data....

In which case your column will run a daily date, You can achieve this by typing a date in the format you choose = 01/05/09, 1 May 09, etc hit return. scroll on the bottom corner of the cell you have typed the date in until it changes from a large white cross to a smaller cross and drag this down the column.

For the totals that need to subtotal autmoatically you will need to select a range - so is this total a weekly/ monthly total - How large is your range.

Once you have decided on the above - for example the in Column A the date ranges from 1st May - 31st May for a calendar month, the subtotal will need to include 31 cells - so in the Column B which is the subtotal = SUM(B2:B32)

You can copy and paste the sum into adjoining cells if you are seperating income from expenses etc.

Hope this helps.

    Well the difficult bit of this is done - Which cell do you want to include your total in? The sum should be of the column ?

    In my example the formula would be in Cell B33

    =SUM(B2:B32)

How to add comma in spreadsheet? thanks


To add commas to your spreadsheet you need the format the numbers. If you want your whole spreadsheet to use commas, click on the area to the left of column A and above number 1. This should highlight the whole spreadsheet. Click on the "," icon in the "number" area, and your spreadsheet will be formatted to put commas in.

Good luck,

I have an assignment where 4 worksheets were provided. I did autosum for the total amounts on each sheet. I need to make a summary sheet now to add all of those totals What formula and steps do I take? ...


I'd say you need to pay better attention to the Excel or other spreadsheet books and help you have handy, and categorize your problem according to the behavior you get inconsistent with the suggested solutions already available.

No excuse for your laziness!

Transforming birthdates into year codes


Here is a solution that might work for you. Please be mindful that there are several different solutions that will achieve the same thing in Excel (I am assuming Excel is your software).

1) Make sure each column in your spreadsheet has a heading.

2) Highlight (select) the column of birthdays.

3) Choose Format from the menu bar.

4) Choose Cells... from the drop-down menu.

5) For the "category", choose Custom.

6) In the "type" box, type yyyy

7) Click OK and when you return to your spreadsheet, you will see only the years displayed. However, when you try to edit a cell, you will see that the entire birth date is stored and preserved.

8) Now, highlight the entire table

9) Then, choose Data from the menu bar

10) Choose Subtotals... from the drop-down menu

11) In the "At each change in" box, choose the name of the column with the birth dates

12) In the "Use function" box, choose Count

13) Leave all other choices at their defaults

14) Click OK, and you are done.

Using this method, you can continue to enter the data as you always have. In that way, the birth date info is never actually destroyed or converted. What you are doing is simply deciding what is displayed.

I hope this helps.

Add 20% uplift price to a pricelist in an excel spreedsheet


lets say you have the column B with the prices. Got to column C right beside the first price cell (I'll take B2 as first cell for example) which is C2 and type
=1.2*B2

Copy this formula in the column C all the way down to the last price Cell. That will give you all the updated prices.

Before you delete the column B where all your old prices are you need to do one more thing. Select the entire C column (new prices) go to edit and click on copy. Before you click anywhere else go back to edit and click on paste special and select value. This will change the formula cell you have created a minute ago to a value cell. Now you can delete the old prices. Good luck :)

Want to update the dates in excel spreadsheet


Try inserting seperate entry for furture day number and then reference that entry address for program math. You will have to either use same number of days to repeat (automatic) this math or accept that it would be a single shot type math. Depending on which version of excel you are using the alert can be a sound or color change. If 97 or older, there is no alert available. 2000 isn't much better.
Easier to set furture date in orginial date block right from the start. Unless you are running the excel program continuously in the background, program will only check date when running.

Good Luck,
