Re: Excel Formula

Use the round() function to specify how many decimal places you want to display.  From the example you provided above, you could use the following formula:


The final "2" specifies that you want to display two digits to the right of the decimal point.

Re: Excel Formula

In the cell where the result is displayed:-
right click and select Format Cells
under the Number tab, select Accounting
(Accounting format always rounds up or down correctly, and defaults to 2 dp, with a removable currency symbol.)

There isn't a function for this, but the formula should be something like this:
A1: Number to increase / decrease
B1: % change
C1: 'INC' or 'DEC'
D1: =IF(C1='INC', A1+(A1*B1), A1-(A1-B1))

Add another colum, say D with result of B*C

Do a list of the different cat, and use sumif
For cat 0101 (in cell F1)
formula to put in G1
=sumif($A$1:$A$7000;F1;$D$1:$D$7000) where F1 contain 0101

expand the formula for other cat. (G2, G3, etc)

You can use a assistant to extract the distinct cat from A1:A7000, sorting them and copy the result in F (Menu Data-> Filter -> elaborate filter)

Microsoft excel

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.

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.

Excel formula.....

Let's start with the 1st equation. I assume you want to be able to recalculate by changing the number of pages.

Put 65 in cell a1.
360 in b1
In C1, put the formula =a1/b1 that's your book thickness
In D1, put .02 for the cover
In E1, put the formula =C1+D1

Now you can change A1, B1,or D1 and the Total thickness gets recalculated automatically. Be careful not to type numbers into C1 or E1, or you lose the formula.

The same for the other equations - a cell for each number ("variable") and another cell for calculations.

Once you've verified the results, then you can get fancy and add titles above each field to make it easy to remember what goes where.

You may need to change the cell format to control the number of decimal places, or thousands commas. Right click on a cell and select format to see the choices you have.

Keep a backup copy of the spreadsheet in case someone (not you, of course) makes a mistake and overwrites the formula cells. You can also look into "protecting" cells to keep them from being changed.

Hope that helps.

Maybe this is what you need:
this is called "nested".
You can put nested if function maximum 7. (for more than 7, we should make another "trick")
if you put toilet in A1 then come the value B1*2
if you put bread in A1 then come the value B1*3
if you put star in A1 then come the value B1*4
Note: SUM(F16*0.3) is wrong. should be only (F16*0.3) or if you want to do sum --> SUM(F16:F20)

Dear pauline, you can link cells in formula bar to see immediate effect of additions and subtractions in dependent boxes.

Like for example you add three numbers in three boxes A1, B1, C1 and answer is supposed to go in D1, just type =SUM(A1+B1+C1)
in D1.

now when you will change the values of a b and c boxes, the value of d1 will automatically change. for adding more numbers you can leave boxes empty so that you can fill in later to see the change in the sum box.

please press fixya if that has helped you.
