Employee names are listed in column "A", when computer boots up each morning they are asked to enter 'here' in column "B" by their name. Each Column "I" has the following formula =IF (Brow# = 'here', NOW(),"" ). Not only does the row being entered into get updated with the time of day, but as each employee checks in, all the previous times are change to the last time someone checks in. We would just like the time of day each employee checks in.

That sounds like Excel. You may have to get someone locally to fix that problem.

To have the contents of the cell change from something you input into something else, you would need to put in a macro using VBA. You'll need someone who knows VBA to help with that.

OR... It is a lot easier to get similar results, if you are ok with using a few more cells to do it. The item# will remain where it was entered, and the product name will have to go in a different cell. In that case, you can use a lookup formula.

To do this, lets say your item# is entered in cell 'Sheet1'!C1, and you want the product_name to display in cell 'Sheet1'!D1. On another sheet (lets say sheet2) In cells 'Sheet2'!A1:B5 input the item#'s in the first column (column A1:A5) and input the matching product-names in column B1:B5. This is your lookup data. This sheet can be hidden if you want In cell 'Sheet1'!D1, use a vlookup formula that will look at the item# and find a match in the list, and display the product name for you. =vlookup('Sheet1'!C1,'Sheet2'!$A$1:$B$5,2,false)

This will display N/A# if the number can't be found.

The easiest way to do this is to use Excel spreadsheet.

This is what you need to do.

Create a label at the top of each column as detailed.

Add a employee to each row under Name of employee

Then against each employee add the data and the formula in the relevant cell under each column.

The first column - Name of the employee

2nd column - salary rate per hour

3rd column - hours worked

4th column - gross pay (formula = salary rate X hours worked)

5th column - tax deduction

6th column - other deductions

7th column - total deductions (formula = tax deduction + other deduction)

8th column - net pay (formula = gross pay - tax - total deductions)

At the last row you can include a total for Gross salary paid, total Tax collected etc.

Once you have setup this spread sheet make a copy of it and save it as a template.

You can then copy this template for each new financial year so you do not have to create a new one each year, you only need to make minor changes for new employees, rates of pay etc.

Another way to make a salary program is to use Access Database. You need more skills to do this, but it can provide greater reporting capabilities.

Here is how you could do the formula with two one column having the hours of each day in it and the overtime being in another cell:

Example:

Column A Column B

8

8

8

2

8

8

0

Total 40 OverTime 2

Formula in this cell where 40 is at:

=IF(SUM(A1:A7)>40,40,SUM(A1:A7))

Formula in cell where 2 is at:

=IF(A8>40,0,SUM(A1:A7)-A8)

Let me know if this helps.

Example:

Column A Column B

8

8

8

2

8

8

0

Total 40 OverTime 2

Formula in this cell where 40 is at:

=IF(SUM(A1:A7)>40,40,SUM(A1:A7))

Formula in cell where 2 is at:

=IF(A8>40,0,SUM(A1:A7)-A8)

Hello this is Baris,

Can you tell me more about this employee. Are you creating an excel spreadsheet to keep record of his days. Are you just getting the numbers from an outside source like a schedule.

To be able to give you an answer I will assume that you have the info already in the same spreadsheet.

Lets say Column A is the days of the month.

Column B is the information column like the hours that the employee worked. If the month has 31 days this is what you need to do.

Click on the cell B32 and type the formula

=count(B1:B31) and press enter. This will count the number off cells which have a value in it in that month.

If you provide me more info we may come up with a better solution. Hope this helps :)

Read the fine manuals.

The solution I've used in similar situations is to create a 3rd column C with the items in column A and column B concatenated.

C2 = A2 & B2

C3 = A3 & B3

C4 = A4 & B4

etc.

Then use COUNTIF function: =COUNTIF(C:C,"FredRed Ball")

Hope this helps.

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

No, it is an excel sheet which starts up on each employee's pc each morning. I'm not familiar with macros in excel.

Thank you for your response!

Window XP; Excel 2003

I would need to know what your running that program on before I can offer you further support.

Is this a macro program being used in Excel?
