Are you referring to the VLOOKUP function in Microsoft Excel?

I love vlookup!

Suppose you have 1 worksheet with song numbers and titles in Row 1, Cols A:B:

Song# Title

123 Love Me Tender

234 Blue Suede Shoes

345 Dixie

Another worksheet has song number and performer in Row 1, Cols A:B

Song# Performer

123 Elvis Presley

234 Carl Perkins

456 Cher

Notice there is NO performer for song number 345 in the 2nd worksheet.

Now in the 1st work sheet, cell C2 insert this LOOKUP function: =LOOKUP(A2,Sheet2!A:B)

Copy that cell to row 3 and row 4 in Col C. You should get a Performer for all songs even though there is not a song number 345 in the performer worksheet.

Help me out Mr. VLOOKUP.

Insert this VLOOKUP function in cell C2 of the first worksheet: =VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet2!A:B,2,0)

Copy
that cell to row 3 and row 4 Col C. You should get the performer names
for the 1st 2 songs, but not for 345 Dixie. The result should be #N/A.

That means VLOOKUP could not find a DIRECT match for song 345 in the second worksheet.

That is why I prefer VLOOKUP over LOOKUP.

I have found this explaination of the VLOOKUP parameters helpful:

1. Needle (A2)

2. Haystack (Sheet2!A:B)

3. RELATIVE Col containing result (2)

4. Need DIRECT MATCH ONLY (0)

Hope this helps.

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.

Percentages are calculated by using the following equation:

amount/total = percentage

Where percentage is in decimal format.

What do you want to do?

Calculate the amount if you know the total and percentage
For example, if you purchase a computer for $800 and there is an 8.9% sales
tax, how much do you have to pay for the sales tax? In this example, you want to
find 8.9% of 800.

Example
The example may be easier to understand if you copy it to a blank
worksheet.

- Create a blank workbook or worksheet.
- Select the example in the Help topic.
**Note**Do not select the row or column headers.

Selecting an example from Help - Press CTRL+C.
- In the worksheet, select cell A1, and press CTRL+V.
- To switch between viewing the results and viewing the formulas that return
the results, press CTRL+` (grave accent), or on the
**Formulas**tab, in the**Formula Auditing**group, click the**Show Formulas**button.

Calculate the percentage if you know the total and amount For example, if you score 42 points correctly out of 50, what is the percentage of correct answers?

Example The example may be easier to understand if you copy it to a blank worksheet.

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

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.")

Hello.

For cell B1 you can use this (without the quotes) "=A1"

Then for cell A2 and down you don't need a formula, but for B2 you can use this formula. "=(B1+A2)" Then click on that cell and drag the mouse down for as many cells as you want this formula to include and press Control and F keys to fill the formula down the column.

For your second formula, you would type 100 into D1 and in D2 you would use the formula "=D1-E1" (again, no quotes).

Feel free to let me know if you need any more clarification or if I missed something!

Hi,

MS Excel's logical test (IF) by its very nature has already two (2) "IF" conditions in a cell, "if true" and "if false".

Should you want to do a series of conditions for a single logical test of a cell, you can replace the IF TRUE and IF FALSE values with other IF Condition(s) (of course the syntax must be correct with appropriate parenthesis where and when required). Formula within a formula within a formula).

Below is an example of four (4) instances of IF conditions within the initial IF formula.

=IF(H7>4.21,H1,(IF(H7>3.4,I1,(IF(H7>2.6,J1,(IF(H7>1.8,M1,(IF(H7>0.99,O1,O7)))))))))

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Hi,

Since you are asking for the formula, it depends where your values are (cell). Please refer to the example below.
