Data validation in excel

How to use datavalidation in excel when the cell or particular range is calculated with the formulas. i think that data validation will happen only when any value is entered in particular cell but i need the error message when ever the value changes.

for eg,

A1 contains 0
B1 contains 1
c1 is calulated with the formula =A1+B1

when ever the value is change in A1 or B1 the C1 will be automatically changed the cursor may not go to the particular cell.I need the error as "This less than zero".

Instead of validation use conditional formating (under format menu). If c1<1 format cell as red. It does not have the attention getter that validation does not require the active cell event. Every other option requires the cell become active for a test.

What is formula to find percentage of females in my workplace?


      To get around this, you can calculate your numbers as percentages first. For example, if you type the formula =10/100 in cell A2, Excel will display the result as 0.1. If you then format that decimal as a percentage, the number will be displayed as 10%, as you 'd expect.Aug 2, 2011

What are the formulas in grading the grades uisng microsoft excel


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.

  1. All formulas begin with an equals sign (=).
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

I want verify the data drop town list and its formulas


Hi Manjee,

There is no formula used in data dropdown list, so it can not be verified as a formula using evaluate formula, trace errors, trace dependents, trace precedents etc.

If you want to create such lists simply:-
  • Select input range then goto
    data --> validation --> allow, list --> select the list range
  • To veryfy you can follow the same process
    data --> validation --> allow, list ,
    now you can see the exact range from where the data is picked.
Thanks

Need a range answer in excel


Yes, Concatenate is the name of the formula.

ex:
=CONCATENATE(.15*B27," to ",.25*B27)
Which would return something like: "15.1254 to 25.5514"

If you want to limit the numbers in the returned data to whole numbers, you need to add the Floor formula.
ex.
=CONCATENATE(FLOOR(.15*B27,1)," to ",FLOOR(.25*B27,1))
That would return something like "15 to 25"
