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?

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.

### 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.

### In Excel adding positive and negative numbers

Yes,

1. Select the column. (click on top of the column it will select)
2. Right Click and select Format Cells.
3. Select Currency in Category then press OK
Now just type your Numbers i.e. 571 for \$571 and -650 for -\$650 and sum using the normal way.

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

This will bring the total just below the selected cells.

### How to number a column. I can't remember the short formula, something like a1+1= which would make the number two pop up in the cell underneath.

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.)

### Ms-office

Subtraction can be done in two ways in Office using the following formulas in the formula (fx) bar:
1. =A1-A2
2. =SUM(A1,-A2)
The above formulas refer to cell reference A2 subtracted from A1. As usual, you can use number values instead of cell references.

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

### Count the number of open and closed order status per owner

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

### Finding the correct row num

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

### Excel formula

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!
