A workbook
is a spreadsheet file. By default, each workbook in Excel contains three pages
or __worksheet__

The term spreadsheet is often used to refer to a workbook, when in
actual fact, spreadsheet refers to the computer program, such as Excel.

So,
strictly speaking, when you open the Excel **spreadsheet** program it loads an empty **workbook** file consisting of three blank **worksheets** for you to use.

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!

Brenda,

Your problem is not so much the formula but the cells that contain the hours for each call. Since they contain the text “hrs” (for example “2.25hrs”) this turns the whole cell to text, not numeric, which will always add up to zero in Excel. So do two things:

- Change the cells in column H (Time Spent) to numeric (2.25 instead of 2.25hrs) – you might want to change the column header to Time Spent In Hrs just to b clear

- Use this formula =SUMIF(E8:E26, 1, H8:H26)

For the formula change the middle number to correspond to the operator ID – for example for operator 2 change the formula to =SUMIF(E8:E26, 2, H8:H26)

This should do it.

BTW, sent you a similar email about this.

No tmaking promises but try pushing F9 and for future make sure the Automatic caluculation is turned on.

Are you looking to solve any particular problem?--- because there are a huge number of possible formulas in Excel.

However, in my opinion, the most commonly needed ones are addition, subtraction, division, multiplication, and summing.

Suppose you have the following numbers typed into your Excel spreadsheet:

**columns: A B C D**

**rows**

**1 ** 20 3

**2 ** 10 4

**3 ** 15 2

**4 ** 1 2 3

Then suppose you type in the following formulas (in the D column):

**columns: A B C D**

**rows**

**1 ** 20 3 =A1+B1

**2 ** 10 4 =A2-B2

**3 ** 15 2 =A3*B2

**4 ** 1 2 3 =sum(A4:C4)

Then the following answers will appear in the D column:

**columns: A B C D**

**rows**

**1 ** 20 3 23

**2 ** 10 4 6

**3** 15 2 30

**4** 1 2 3 6

You need to learn how to use the, "Paste Link," function. If you copy the spreadsheet and paste the information into a new tab in the same workbook, using the 'paste link' feature, the information on the linked pages will update automatically each time you update the page the links are based upon.

One in general should not use Find & Replace.

I would recommend always creating the first formula manually by selecting the cells. This will avoid common errors like extra spaces.

try using the formula "sumif". It allows you to sum by category/name.
Good luck!

I have solved my problem thanks. The answer being that the sum range was looking at one more extra row than the lookup range.

I have highlighted the offending bit in the formula.

=SUMIF('Running Estimate Sheet'!

$A$5:$A$459,$A27,'Running Estimate Sheet'!$S$4:$S$459)I thoght that this was an excel 2007 glitch but talking to colleagues at work they had come across the same issue with excel 2003.

Thanks for responding though.
