1. i want to add two columns together.

2. i want the result to be shown as = number + a2

cell A1 = B4 + B5 = 50

cell A2 = C4 + C5 = 60

cell A3 = 50 + C4+C5 = 110

In excel, if you do something like

= B2 + C2 & " + a2 "

then you will get the number "number + a2"

not sure what you mean by number or a2 though. could you clairfy?

Posted on Oct 22, 2012

The formula for A1 is: =SUM(B4,B5)

A2 is: =SUM(C4,C5)

A3 is: =SUM(A1:A2)

To test this, put 25 in cell B4, 25 in cell B5, then 30 in cell C4, and 30 in cell C5.....the result in cell A3 is 110.

Hope this helps.

You can number rows in a column by entering a number in cell A1 (usually the number 1 but youcan start with any number) and the formula (=A1+1) in the next row. The result there will be 2. Copy that formula down the rows you want to number and they will be numbered 3, 4, 5, etc. Each row adds 1 to the previous row so if you do anything that disrupts the sequence (like inserting a row between two others) you will have to copy the formulas down again to restore the sequence.
You can also use the Edit-Fill-... menu command to put a series of numbers into rows. Put the starting number in th efirst row. Highlight it and the rows that you want to number and select Edit-Fill-Series... Those numbers will not change if you insert columns or move the formulas.

Or you can use the formula =ROW(A1) in any cell to return the number of that row. (The result of =ROW(A1) is the number 1 in cell A1, the result of =ROW(A2) is the number 2 in cell B2, etc. In this case inserting rows will not affect the numbering (i.e. row A5 will always be numbered 5 even if the data in it is moved down.)

Yes,

That is Select the Cells which you want to SUM and Press**Alt+=**

This will bring the total just below the selected cells.

Thanks

- Select the column. (click on top of the column it will select)
- Right Click and select Format Cells.
- Select
**Currency**in**Category**then press**OK**

That is Select the Cells which you want to SUM and Press

Try this:

=LOOKUP(B4,A$1:A$31,A$1:A$31)

=LOOKUP(B4,A$1:A$31,A$1:A$31)

Subtraction can be done in two ways in Office using the following formulas in the formula (fx) bar:

The SUM formula subtracts by changing the sign of the reference. Remember the sign rules, and thus - -x is in effect +x.

- =A1-A2
- =SUM(A1,-A2)

My suggestion is to use a Pivot Table. Follow these instructions:

Click on column A1 - then in the menu bar click DATA > Pivot Table and Pivot Chart Report.

Click NEXT on step 1 of pivot table wizard.

For step two you will want to highlight all of the data on your sheet. then click next.

Choose NEW WORKSHEET for step 3 of the pivot table wizard and click finish.

Once the Pivot Table sheet opens, drag the STATUS field into the top left corner of the pivot table view, where "drop column fields" and "drop row fields" meet. Next drop another instance of the STATUS field into the "drop row fields here" column. And lastly drop the OWNER field into the "drop column fields here" section. You should now be viewing a report showing you exactly what you were looking for.

Joe

You would have to combine the use of 2 functions. The Address and Match funbctions.

Lets say the number you want the address of is located in cell F1 and you have 2 columns of numbers. One colum in Column A and the other in column B. I will give you 2 formulas. The 1st one will return just the row number. The 2nd one will return the cell address.

Option 1: Lets say you just want to know the row reference of the number in cell F1. Place this formula in cell D1. =MATCH(F1,A1:A20)

If you have another column ytou want the row number of, place the formula in lets say cell D2 and change the column references from 'A' to 'B'.

Option 2: If you want the cell reference, place this formula in cell D1 and D2 instead of the firt formula.

=ADDRESS(MATCH(F1,A1:A20,0),1,1,TRUE)

And just like the first option, for the 2nd column, put the formula in D2 and change the column reference 'A' to 'B'.

No tmaking promises but try pushing F9 and for future make sure the Automatic caluculation is turned on.

Hi Griffnz,

Your "known Y's" or 'values' are in Column B. This is the first array in the Trend formula.

Your "known X's" or 'months' are in Column A. This is the second array in the trend formula.

The trend formula is supposed to give you a projection of what the rest of the values in Column B will be over the next few months (usually continuing cells in Column A). The cells you want these values to show up in represent the third array in the formula.

Thus, your formula should look more like: '=trend(B3:B14,A3:A14,A15:A18)'

However, your formula is leaving out The values in B and adding values from C - -- but there ARE no values in C. Apparently, C is where you want the values to appear. In that case, the C array would be the third array in your formula. This would look more like '=trend(B3:B14,A3:A14,C3:C14)

If this doesn't make sense, let me know.

I'm assuming you'd like to assign a numerical value to cardinal references (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc.).

Best way to do this is to create a quick lookup table on a separate sheet of the same .xls document. Down at the bottom of the page, click on Sheet2 and create a quick table where column A has 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc. and column B has your values.

Now click back to Sheet1 where your data is and in A2 put this formula:

=VLookup(A1, Sheet2!$A$1:$B$x, 2, FALSE)

Note: replace the lower case x in the formula above with the number of the last row of data in your lookup table on Sheet2.

You can copy and paste this formula down the column to calculate your other values.

Hope that helps!

Terry

Put the figure which you have to multiply in cell A1, Put the figure in cell A2 by which you have to multiply by, type =A1*A2 in cell A3. You will get the right answer.

You may substract, multiply or add by this method by appropriate mark in cell A3 in between A1 and A2.
