Formulas are used to specify calculations based on values in designated cells. Excel supports basic calculations as well as statistical, trigonometric and other specialized functions.

Formulas used in Excel must follow a certain syntax.

- All formulas begin with an equals sign
**(=)**. - Some formulas use operands such as
**+,-, *,/**for addition, subtraction, multiplication or division.

For example, the formula =A1+A2+A3 would add the contents of cells A1, A2 and A3. - Other formulas refer to different functions such as SUM, AVERAGE and others.

For example, the formula =SUM(A1:A3) would add the contents for the range A1 through A3. - Formulas can be
**combined with operands.**

For example, the formula =10*SUM(A1:A3) would add the contents cells A1 through A3 and multiply them by 10. - Functions can
**be nested within each other.**

For example, the formula =SQRT(10*SUM(A1:A3)) would take the square root of ten times the sum of cells A1 through A3. When functions are nested, it is important that the number of left parentheses match the number of right parentheses.

Here is how you could do the formula with two one column having the hours of each day in it and the overtime being in another cell:

Example:

Column A Column B

8

8

8

2

8

8

0

Total 40 OverTime 2

Formula in this cell where 40 is at:

=IF(SUM(A1:A7)>40,40,SUM(A1:A7))

Formula in cell where 2 is at:

=IF(A8>40,0,SUM(A1:A7)-A8)

Let me know if this helps.

Example:

Column A Column B

8

8

8

2

8

8

0

Total 40 OverTime 2

Formula in this cell where 40 is at:

=IF(SUM(A1:A7)>40,40,SUM(A1:A7))

Formula in cell where 2 is at:

=IF(A8>40,0,SUM(A1:A7)-A8)

Let me know if this helps.

Enter data the number 10 on cell A1. Enter data the number 20 on cell B2. Mouse click on cell C3. Press equal sign, press left arrow, press *, press left arrow twice, press enter. Mouse click on cell C3. You'll see your formula on the address bar. Hope this helps.

You should use the formula COUNT (Cell1, Cell2), please replace Cell1 and Cell2 for the range of your cells in Excell. You could use too the formula COUNT.IF(Cell1,Cell2,Criterion), Cell1 and Cell2 is the range of cells when can exist an entry.

Example The final formula is like:

COUNT(A1:A5)/COUNT.IF(A1:A5,"=x")*100

Example The final formula is like:

COUNT(A1:A5)/COUNT.IF(A1:A5,"=x")*100

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.

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.

sorry, I need a bit more information, because if as you say, column d contains text data such as RO, MO etc, then Excel can't perform a calculation such as MO*70 ?

Try this:

=IF((E2<38),B2*14.3, IF((E2<44),B2*15.05, IF((E2<50),B2*15.8,0)))

Note that <38 is the same as <=37. Also, you can replace the 0 at the end with empty quotes "" for a blank cell.

=IF((E2<38),B2*14.3, IF((E2<44),B2*15.05, IF((E2<50),B2*15.8,0)))

Note that <38 is the same as <=37. Also, you can replace the 0 at the end with empty quotes "" for a blank cell.

Suppose the value for $ is stored in cell A3. Your formula would look like this: =(A3+A3*0.25)*1.5

The equals sign at the beginning of the formula is necessary. And if you want the result to be formatted as currency, you can do so by right-clicking the cell or column, format cell, number tab, choose currency.
