# Using if and then to add values to a cell

I want to be able to add a value from cell "a" to cell #1 only if cell #2 contains a value or text, then I want to add a second value from cell "b" to cell #1 only if cell #3 contains a value or text, finally, when cell #4 contains a value or text I want cell #1 to drop the values in cells "a" & "b" and add the value in cell "c". Can I do this using if and then?

thanks

Ian

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.

### Cell number sequence

Sequencing is a formula =A1+1. If you insert a cell you can re-s
equence by doing a autofill in the column that contains the sequence number.
i.e.
Cell A1 value= 1
Cell A2 =A1+1 (value will be 2)
If you auto-fill the entire column will sequence:
=A2+1 (value will be 3)
=A3+1
etc.

### My MS Excel vlookup function ASCII type table contains both upper case and lower case letters, characters like ( and % or *, and numbers. It seems to return the numerical equivalent of upper case letters...

Correct a #N/A error Show All Hide All This error occurs when a value is not available to a function or formula.
1. Optionally, click the cell that displays the error, click the button that appears , and then click Show Calculation Steps if it appears.
2. Review the following possible causes and solutions. Missing data, and #N/A or NA() has been entered in its place
Replace #N/A with new data.
Note You can enter #N/A in those cells where data is not yet available. Formulas that refer to those cells will then return #N/A instead of attempting to calculate a value.
Giving an inappropriate value for the lookup_value argument in the HLOOKUP, LOOKUP, MATCH, or VLOOKUP worksheet function
Make sure that the lookup_value argument (argument: The values that a function uses to perform operations or calculations. The type of argument a function uses is specific to the function. Common arguments that are used within functions include numbers, text, cell references, and names.) is the correct type of value — for example, a value or a cell reference, but not a range reference. Using the VLOOKUP, HLOOKUP, or MATCH worksheet function to locate a value in an unsorted table
By default, functions that look up information in tables must be sorted in ascending order. However, the VLOOKUP and HLOOKUP worksheet functions contain a range_lookup argument (argument: The values that a function uses to perform operations or calculations. The type of argument a function uses is specific to the function. Common arguments that are used within functions include numbers, text, cell references, and names.) that instructs the function to find an exact match even if the table is not sorted. To find an exact match, set the range_lookup argument to FALSE. The MATCH worksheet function contains a match_type argument that specifies the order the list must be sorted in to find a match. If the function cannot find a match, try changing the match_type argument. To find an exact match, set the match_type argument to 0.
Using an argument in an array formula that is not the same number of rows or columns as the range that contains the array formula
If the array formula (array formula: A formula that performs multiple calculations on one or more sets of values, and then returns either a single result or multiple results. Array formulas are enclosed between braces { } and are entered by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER.) has been entered into multiple cells, make sure that the ranges referenced by the formula have the same number of rows and columns, or enter the array formula into fewer cells. For example, if the array formula has been entered into a range 15 rows high (C1:C15) and the formula refers to a range 10 rows high (A1:A10), the range C11:C15 will display #N/A. To correct this error, enter the formula into a smaller range (for example, C1:C10), or change the range to which the formula refers to the same number of rows (for example, A1:A15).
Omitting one or more required arguments from a built-in or custom worksheet function
Enter all arguments (argument: The values that a function uses to perform operations or calculations. The type of argument a function uses is specific to the function. Common arguments that are used within functions include numbers, text, cell references, and names.) in the function.
Using a custom worksheet function that is not available
Make sure that the workbook that contains the worksheet function is open and the function is working properly.
Running a macro that enters a function that returns #N/A
Make sure that the arguments (argument: The values that a function uses to perform operations or calculations. The type of argument a function uses is specific to the function. Common arguments that are used within functions include numbers, text, cell references, and names.) in the function are correct and in the correct position.

### 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.

### Text box restriction

I hope this helps and thanks for rating my effort...any other questions...shoot em to me....The Fang.

Restricting character input You can use the SetInputTextType command to restrict the characters that the user can enter in the text input dialog box. For example, suppose an application contains an input text field for users to provide a numeric value, such as their age, and that the input text field has the variable name ageVar. To ensure that the user enters only numeric values in the text input dialog box, you could add the following code to your application:
fscommand2("SetInputTextType", "ageVar", "Numeric");
When users open the input text dialog box, they can enter only numeric values in the text fields.
For more information, see SetInputTextType in the fscommand2 function entry in the Flash Lite 2.x ActionScript Language Reference.

### Numaric to TEXT

Raju, There's no easy way to do it as far as I know. What you can do is create a table where in column A you'll have the sum, in this case 300 and in column B you'll have the text i.e. Rupees Three Hundred Only Then you need to use the Vlookup function to retrieve the right text to the number you get.
