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.

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.

In A1, put a random value of d as 0.1. Then in B1, put your equation 5*d^4 - 10.29*d^(-1.333), wherein refer d as A1. Then use goal seek function on Tools Menu. First "Set cell" as B1, "To value" as 0.124 and "By Changing Cell" as A1. Excel will do the Trial & Error and will give you the answer in Cell A1.

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.

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.

Goal Seek Solver and Sceanerios are a Part of What if Data Analysis Tools.

Goal Seek find the Expected Change in terms of value to a calculated Items.

For Example if you have a sales data for the year 2007 where Profit is 350000 and you want to make it 500000 for the year 2008 so what changes you will do in Product cost or Product Price this you will find with Goal Seek. It is also known as Back calculation. It has some restrictions which is overcome by Solver. But before doing this type of calculation use Sceanerios to store different Calculated values using Goal Seek and Solver. You dont have to add these values in different sheets all the values stored as a sceanerios. so You can show different Predections to the customers without moving around the Sheets.

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.
