What are the values of cells C4 and C5? Should the function above be "...RANDBETWEEN(A\$4,A\$5)" ?

### IS THERE A FORMULA IN EXCEL THAT WILL HIGHLIGHT CELLS THAT MATCH A NUMERICAL INVENTORY LIST?

One way would be to create a colunn C and use the formula: =COUNTIF(B\$2:B\$200,A2) in cell C2. Then copy the formula down to C200. (assuming you have 200 entries in B...). This will put a "1" next to every number in Column A that has a match in column B. Then you could put a conditional formula in column A that will highlight the cell if the value in column C is equal to 1. Alternatively you could also simply filter for 1's in column C and then manually highlight the cells that show up in A!

### In Excel adding positive and negative numbers

Yes,

1. Select the column. (click on top of the column it will select)
2. Right Click and select Format Cells.
3. Select Currency in Category then press OK
Now just type your Numbers i.e. 571 for \$571 and -650 for -\$650 and sum using the normal way.

That is Select the Cells which you want to SUM and Press Alt+=

This will bring the total just below the selected cells.

Thanks

### Sometimes when I use a formula in Excel 2003 it will not calculate - it is as if the formula does not exist. an additional problem is that when the formula works it will not calculate several columns if...

Make sure, when you entr a formula that you hit the ENTER key instead of just moving to tyour next cell. To have all numbers added or moved, use the"Special" application, or change the value. Such as -if you are working in text mode and you enter numbers, they are only numbers in text mode. They don't have a value. Correct the cells to reflect numbers. Right click, format cell - select what you want.

### Excel

Step1. Start Microsoft Excel and open the file you want to change. Step2. Double-click on the cell where you want the total to appear. Step3. Press the = key on the keyboard. 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 formula

Relative cell reference is address of cell , when copied from one cell to another gets changed automatically.

e.g. Put formula in cell c5 as A5+1 when you copy this from c5 to c6 the address of A5 will automatically changed to A6.

Absolute Cell Reference

As above now put formula in cell C5 as \$A\$5+1 ,now copy this formula from C5 to C6 if you this formula youwill find cell Address of A5 does not changed.

Mixed Cell Reference:

If we put Dollar (\$) sign before Alphabetic cell address i.e.\$c5 then even if you copy this formula in any cell , coloumn (c)  will remains constant.

Similarly if we put Dollar (\$) sign before Numeric cell address i.e.c\$5  then you copy this formula in any cell row address of the cell remains same.(5).

Pl elobarate on remaining two points 'Specific order of formulas ' and 'advance formulas,
