Text and nos. in one cell, nos. to be used to create formula.

I wish to know how to use nos. from a cell having text also along with the nos. Suppose I have 'episodes 208' in one formatted cell with merged and text wrapped cell, I wish to use figure 208 from this cell to create a formula in another cell, e.g. I wish to divide 100000 by 208 in another cell. Please tell me how to do it if there is a way. Thank you....

    No way that I know how to do that. Better to have a header row with a title of "episodes" and just have the numbers below.

It is possible to do this using the right function.

I created your cells into a worksheet and it is very simple, although I have assumed that the last 3 characters in your cell will be the didigts you need for your formulae.

=RIGHT(B4,3)/1000000

Where the initial text contains more than 3 digits you can adjust for this in the in the formulae with everying else remaining the same.

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.

HOW TO COUNT THE OCCURRENCES OF A TEXT STRING


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*")

Writing a formula for a sumif problem


Brenda,

Your problem is not so much the formula but the cells that contain the hours for each call. Since they contain the text “hrs” (for example “2.25hrs”) this turns the whole cell to text, not numeric, which will always add up to zero in Excel. So do two things:
- Change the cells in column H (Time Spent) to numeric (2.25 instead of 2.25hrs) – you might want to change the column header to Time Spent In Hrs just to b clear
- Use this formula =SUMIF(E8:E26, 1, H8:H26)
For the formula change the middle number to correspond to the operator ID – for example for operator 2 change the formula to =SUMIF(E8:E26, 2, H8:H26)

This should do it.

BTW, sent you a similar email about this.

Finding the right formula


Assumption:

  1. we work on sheet1, cell b1 as description of material and cell e1 as quantity figure.
  2. 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.
what you should do is make a formula in 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.

Using if and then to add values to a cell


Try using the SUMIF function for one condition or multiple conditions. Use the SUMIF worksheet function to create a total value for one range based on a value in another range. For example, for every cell in the rage B5:B25 that contains the value "Northwind", the following formula calculates the total for the corresponding cells in the range F5:F25. Formula:
=sumif(B5:B25,"Northwind",F5:F25)

Here are SUMIF functions for multiple conditions.

=sum(if((B5:B25="Northwind")*(C5:C25="Western"),F5:F25))

=sum(if((B5:B25="Northwind")+(C5:C25="Western"),F5:F25))

=sum(if(B5:B25="Northwind",IF(C5:C25="Western"),1,0)))

Also check your help for SUMIF functions.

Is there by any chance a space or any other character before the equals sign? That could cause your formula to display as text.
