Assuming that all of your data is in a single row number 4 and between columns N and PF

Try:
{=OFFSET(N4,0,MATCH(TODAY(),N4:PF4,0)+1,1,1)}

The MATCH function looks up the value of today() in the range N4 to PF4 and returns the number of columns offset from the beginning of the range. (The 0 here does an exact match)

The OFFSET function returns a value from a cell a specified number of columns from a reference cell, in this case N4, which is the first column that contains the search data. We need to add on to this value to skip the Interest column.

### How to get all balance sheet entries tally to excel

This is a very handy process when you're totaling or subtotaling columns. On the cell that you want the 'total' in type '=sum(column letter row number),(column letter row number). The first 'column letter row number' is where you want the first cell to be started in the total factor and the second 'column letter row number) is the last cell you want added in the total factor. The help (?) section is good at explaining formulas. Hope this helps, keep this process handy if you use Excel much because it'll be helpfull each time you subtotal or total columns.

### BASIC EXCEL FORMULA

Are you looking to solve any particular problem?--- because there are a huge number of possible formulas in Excel.

However, in my opinion, the most commonly needed ones are addition, subtraction, division, multiplication, and summing.

Suppose you have the following numbers typed into your Excel spreadsheet:

columns: A B C D
rows
1 20 3
2 10 4
3 15 2
4 1 2 3

Then suppose you type in the following formulas (in the D column):

columns: A B C D
rows
1 20 3 =A1+B1
2 10 4 =A2-B2
3 15 2 =A3*B2
4 1 2 3 =sum(A4:C4)

Then the following answers will appear in the D column:

columns: A B C D
rows
1 20 3 23
2 10 4 6
3 15 2 30
4 1 2 3 6

### Duplicacy in excel sheet

Since you are searching the data by the phone number , first select all the data in the spreadsheet and sort it in ascending order by the phone number.
Then, assuming you have 5 columns of data A through E, and the phone numbers are in column E, with row 1 occupied by column headings, use the following formula in cell F2=IF(E2=E1,"Duplicate",1)

Drag this formula down column F till the end of your data
Select the entire data and do an auto filter
In column F filter the data by Duplicate and delete all these rows
What remains should be unique data
