Question about Microsoft Office Professional 2007 Full Version for PC

If you wanted to use a List of words and assign a number to each word:

Use a pre-set list (use Data Validation for best results)

Easy method:

Use as many columns as there are words in your list plus one.

If your list is Go, Stop, Pause then in the first cell write =IF(A1="Go","1","") in the second cell write =IF(B1="Stop","2","") in the third vell write =IF(C1="Pause","3","") in the fourth cell write =CONCATENATE(B1:D1) the cells holding the IF statements.

Note "" returns a blank cell, therefore Concatenating the cells will return only a single number.

Select the Columns with the IF Statements and Format - Hide. This will tidy up the working Spreadsheet.

The complex method (which I prefer not to use - creating long Linear Functions can be very difficult to get them right and to correct if wrong) would be to use a number of IF functions joined by the OR function in the one cell.

Good luck.

An2net21,

The simplest solution is to use the if function.

In your example you coudl use:

=IF(A1="girl",1,0)

IF "girl" is in a1 then b2 would show as 1.

If anything else but "girl" is in a1 then b2 would show as 0.

Have you tried the function within Data -> Text to columns?

In the cell that you
want the result to appear in, enter the appropriate formula from the following
examples.

How to Count the Occurrences of a Number

Use this formula

=SUM(IF(range=number,1,0))

where range is the range that you want to search, and number is the number that you want to count.

NOTE: This formula must be entered as an array formula. To enter an array formula, press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER.

How to Count the Occurrences of a Text String

Method 1

Use this formula

=SUM(IF(range="text",1,0))

where range is the range that you want to search, and text is the text that you want to find (the text must be enclosed in quotation marks).

NOTE: The above formula must be entered as an array formula. To enter an array formula, press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER.

Method 2

Use the COUNTIF() function to count the occurrences of a text string. For example, use the formula

=COUNTIF(range,"text")

where range is the range of cells that you are evaluating, and text is the text string that you want to count instances of (note that text must be enclosed in quotation marks).

NOTE: This formula must be entered as an array formula. To enter an array formula, press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER.

Wildcard characters can be used within the COUNTIF function.

The asterisk character (*) represents more than one character. For example, to count all the cells in the range a1:a10 that contain an "x," you can use the following formula:

=COUNTIF(a1:a10,"*x*")

The question mark character (?) can also be used to represent one wildcard character -- for example, to count all cells in the range whose second character is the letter, such as "ax" or "bx."

=COUNTIF(a1:a10,"?x*")

Use the **test** function.

Formula in cell A1 would be**=text(a2,"dddd").**

This would pick up the date from cell A2 and return the day of the week in cell A1.

Formula in cell A1 would be

This would pick up the date from cell A2 and return the day of the week in cell A1.

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.")

formula for the keys or short curt for excel

Make sure that the cell is formatted as a number, not as text. (Right-click the cell, format cell, number, choose NUMBER.)

Dec 19, 2007 | Microsoft Excel for PC

Is there by any chance a space or any other character before the equals sign? That could cause your formula to display as text.

Dec 03, 2007 | Microsoft Excel for PC

Yes of course, if you have a little background of visual basic programming that's possible you can enhance your requirements.

Block off the cells (or row or column) in question, right-click and choose FORMAT CELLS. In the NUMBER tab, choose TEXT. This will make your dates appear exactly as they are typed, and not allow Excel to reformat them.
