  1. Select all cells (either press Ctrl+A or click on the small upper left square on the edge of the worksheet)
  2. In the menu bar, go to Format - Cells
  3. In the popup menu that opens, click on the Protection tab (it should be the last one on the menu)
  4. Deselect the small box tagged Locked
  5. Click on OK. Now all your cells can be overwritten, regardless the protection status of the worksheet.
  6. Select only the cells containing formulas that you want to hide (If you need to perform multiple selection, you can press and hold down the Ctrl key, while clicking on each cell you want to select)
  7. In the menu bar, go to Format - Cells
  8. In the popup menu that opens, click on the Protection tab
  9. Tick the small box tagged Hidden and the Locked box as well. If you don’t tick the Locked box, other users of your worksheet would be able to overwrite the formula cells, without even knowing that they contain formulas (as they become invisible following this operation).
  10. Click on OK
  11. In the menu bar, go to Tools - Protection - Protect Sheet
  12. If you want, you can input a password for unlocking the worksheet. This will prevent others from unlocking it. If you don’t want to do that, leave the password field blank and press OK.
  13. Now click on one of your cells containing formulas and look at the formula bar. It should be empty, although the formula is still there. The cell would remain locked, but it would be automatically updated when changing the content of its precedents relating to the contained formula.

Whenever I work in excel 2007 file.It show compatibility mode n top and any formula are not working properly in file.


When you open Office 2003 files with Office 2007, it works in compatibility mode, so that if you open the files in earlier version (i.e. Office 2003 etc) there would be no issues (reverse compatibility with earlier versions.
Regarding formulas, rest assure that compatibility mode does NOT affect the calculations at all. All formulas are reverse compatible.
So, it is recommended that you may save the file in Word/ Office2007 format. Do review your formulas for errors (if any).

What is the function of Microsoft excel?


Ok - if your question is "What is Excel" - then the answer is that it is a spreadsheet program that allows you the ability to compute data (usually numbers) for example, pulling together a list of hours worked by employees and adding them up automatically. It also can be used to develop sophisticated computational models and I have used it to develop professional services proposal sizing tools using formulas and functions ... which is a good segwey into my other answer.

If your question is "what is a function or formula in Excel" - then the answer is a function or formula in Excel is a collection of mathematical, text, statistical, etc. preprogrammed tools that allows you to manipulate the data you have in your spreadsheet e.g. a SUM() function that adds a series of numbers, and AVERAGE() funtion that computes the average of a series of numbers, etc.

Hope that helps!

Subtraction can be done in two ways in Office using the following formulas in the formula (fx) bar:
  1. =A1-A2
  2. =SUM(A1,-A2)
The above formulas refer to cell reference A2 subtracted from A1. As usual, you can use number values instead of cell references.

The SUM formula subtracts by changing the sign of the reference. Remember the sign rules, and thus - -x is in effect +x.

Countifs


The formula in both versions is the same:

=countif(range,value)

i.e. The below formula will increase its count by one if any of the 18 cells it's checking are equal to 1.
=countif(A1:B9,1)

This tells Excel that you are entering a formula into the cell. Step4. Enter the formula, then press Enter. Follow the steps below for an example. Step5. Enter an opening parenthesis character: (. Step6. Enter a cell name. For example: =(E2. Step7. Press the + key. Step8. Enter another cell name and a closing parenthesis character: ). For example: =(E2+E3). Step9. Enter a minus sign and a third cell name. For example: =(E2+E3)-E4. Step10. Press the Enter key to accept the formula. The cell will display the sum of the first two cells minus the third cell. $('.Article .Steps .Image').each(function(i,e){ e = $(e); e.find('img').error(function(){ $(this).unbind(); e.remove(); }); });
Tips & Warnings
  • Formulas are just equations. Instead of adding or subtracting numbers you are adding and subtracting the contents of a cell.
  • Excel includes a number of predefined functions to use as well. You can combine the predefined functions into your own formula. (See "How to Use Provided Excel Formulas.")
I hope it helps!!!

Excel Coordinates don't show up in Formula Bar


Heyo. I have had this problem before too. This procedure prevents the cells that contain the formula from being edited.
  1. Select the range of cells whose formulas you want to hide. You can also select the entire sheet.
  2. On the Format menu, click Cells, and then click the Protection tab.
  3. Select the Hidden check box.
  4. Click OK.
  5. On the Tools menu, point to Protection, and then click Protect Sheet.
  6. Make sure the Protect worksheet and contents of locked cells check box is selected.
Good Luck!
