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.

- All formulas begin with an equals sign
**(=)**. - 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. - 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. - 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. - 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.

Ok - if your question is "What is Excel" - then the answer is that it is a spreadsheet program that allows you the ability to compute data (usually numbers) for example, pulling together a list of hours worked by employees and adding them up automatically. It also can be used to develop sophisticated computational models and I have used it to develop professional services proposal sizing tools using formulas and functions ... which is a good segwey into my other answer.

If your question is "what is a function or formula in Excel" - then the answer is a function or formula in Excel is a collection of mathematical, text, statistical, etc. preprogrammed tools that allows you to manipulate the data you have in your spreadsheet e.g. a SUM() function that adds a series of numbers, and AVERAGE() funtion that computes the average of a series of numbers, etc.

Hope that helps!

These are Excel functions for Lookup tables. The purpose of
Lookup tables is to bring a value to the table, find the closest (or exact)
match, and then return another value.

An example is the federal income tax table. On your tax return you get your gross income and number of dependents, go to the Lookup table, and find your taxable income.

The V in VLOOKUP means that the table is vertical; HLOOKUP has a horizontal orientation.

If you use the Insert Function button in Excel and paste either function, the dialog box will explain each required field separately with examples.

This error message occurs if the following conditions are true:

Method 1: Temporarily toggle the option from "Nothing (hide objects)" to All In Excel 2007, temporarily toggle the option from Nothing (hide objects) to All, and then insert the rows or columns as needed. To do this, follow these steps:

If these steps do not let you hide rows or columns or insert rows or columns in Excel 2007, try the steps in method 2.

Method 2: Change the position property of the object to Move and size with cells To work around this issue, Excel 2003, Excel 2002, and Excel 2000, change the position property of the object to Move and size with cells. To do this, follow these steps:

- The option Nothing (hide objects) is selected in the Display options for this workbook section in the Excel Options dialog box.
- You create an object, such as a cell comment, in any cell in a column.
- You try to hide the column to the left of the column that contains the object, the column that contains the object, or all the columns to the right side of the column that contains the object. Or, in some cases, you try to insert a row or column in the worksheet.

Method 1: Temporarily toggle the option from "Nothing (hide objects)" to All In Excel 2007, temporarily toggle the option from Nothing (hide objects) to All, and then insert the rows or columns as needed. To do this, follow these steps:

- In the upper-left corner of the Excel window, click the Microsoft Office button.

Method 2: Change the position property of the object to Move and size with cells To work around this issue, Excel 2003, Excel 2002, and Excel 2000, change the position property of the object to Move and size with cells. To do this, follow these steps:

- If the object is a cell comment, select the cell that contains the comment, right-click the cell, and then click Show Comment or Show/Hide Comments. Note This makes the comment visible.
- Move the pointer to the edge of the object until the pointer changes into a white arrow with four small black arrows on the pointer. Then, click the object to select it.
- In Excel 2003 and earlier version of Excel, click <object name> on the Format menu. Note In this menu command, <object name> is the name of the object, such as "Comment" or "AutoShape." In Excel 2007, click Format <object name>.
- In the Format dialog box, click the Properties tab.
- Click Move and size with cells, and then click OK.
- If you want to hide the cell comment again, right-click the cell that contains the comment, and then click Hide Comment.
- Follow these steps for each object in the affected column as described in the "Cause" section. When you hide the columns, you do not receive the error message.

for example, cell A1 has date (01-01-2008) and cell A2 has current date (08-24-2008) and cell A3 shows total days, is that you want to know? if yes, apply formula as under...

cell A3......(properties set as General to show digits)................ =SUM(A2-A1)

cell A3......(properties set as General to show digits)................ =SUM(A2-A1)
