Countif formulas


Are you trying to find how many don't have a letter? If so you might try "COUNTA" instead of "COUNTIF". You could also try looking at the format of the cell your formula is in and change it to general or number.

Sometimes when I use a formula in Excel 2003 it will not calculate - it is as if the formula does not exist. an additional problem is that when the formula works it will not calculate several columns if...


Make sure, when you entr a formula that you hit the ENTER key instead of just moving to tyour next cell. To have all numbers added or moved, use the"Special" application, or change the value. Such as -if you are working in text mode and you enter numbers, they are only numbers in text mode. They don't have a value. Correct the cells to reflect numbers. Right click, format cell - select what you want.

Working hours calculation (with Neg time) in Excel


Hi Aviks,
Normal average works well for linear distribution, but here is non-linear distribution of work. So here is the formula that has been taken from project management concepts. Please try for different values of x and y

Try to keep x+y=6

=(StandardWorkingHr*x+(ActualWorkingHr-StandardWorkingHr)*y)/(x+y)

e.g.
=(StandardWorkingHr*5+(ActualWorkingHr-StandardWorkingHr)*1)/5)
if you can share data with me, I can give you the exact formula.

IF Formula


You can use this formula
=IF(A2<=100,"Within budget","Over budget")
Which means
If the number above is less than or equal to 100, then the formula displays "Within budget". Otherwise, the function displays "Over budget" (Within budget)
or you and try something like this
=IF(A2=100,SUM(B5:B15),"")
which means
If the number above is 100, then the range B5:B15 is calculated. Otherwise, empty text ("") is returned ()
I got these examples from the help within Exel they give several more examples and more expaination.

Excel formula


Hello,
The formula should go like this:
=IF(C11>40,(C11-40)*D11,0)
This one will give you the result of (ONLY overtime hours)*(hourly wage), and if there are no overtime hours the result is 0.
Now, if you need to multiply that result with say 1,5 or whatever - insert the number you need like this:
=IF(C11>40,(C11-40)*D11*1.5,0)

If you need more help, please ask.
