First you need to format the cell (format cell then customize then put yy to appear the total number of years), where 2-28-2002 minus 5-1-2006 will appear then divide it to 365 but you have to format the cell where you want the answer to appear (format cell then click number then decimal places to 2). Now you get the answer you want. Hope this will help you

When i copy a sum formula in excel the first cell does not remain the same it increments by 1. how can I prevent this?


There are 2 types of direct cell references that you can use when you're writing formulas: Relative References & Absolute References.
A Relative Reference is the address of a cell (e.g. A5). When a Relative Reference in a formula is copied from one cell to another, the Reference gets changed automatically. e.g. If you put a formula in cell c5 as A5+1, when you copy this from c5 to c6 the formula A5+1 will automatically change to A6+1.
An Absolute Cell Reference does not change when its copied to another location. As in the example above if the formula in cell C5 is written as $A$5+1, if you copy this formula from C5 to C6 it will remain as $A$5+1 (NOT change to $A$6+1.
The $ sign signifies Absolute, and can be applied to the Row reference, the Column reference, or both Column & Row (as in the example).

What are the formulas in grading the grades uisng microsoft excel


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.

  1. All formulas begin with an equals sign (=).
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

Subtraction can be done in two ways in Office using the following formulas in the formula (fx) bar:
  1. =A1-A2
  2. =SUM(A1,-A2)
The above formulas refer to cell reference A2 subtracted from A1. As usual, you can use number values instead of cell references.

The SUM formula subtracts by changing the sign of the reference. Remember the sign rules, and thus - -x is in effect +x.

Calculate Quarters between any two dates


not sure if this is what you are after entirely but should at least help you out some what

=DATEDIF(A3,C3,"m")/3

As you said you cant just divide by 3 but I have divided the formula by 3 to see how many 3 months will go into the output you could maybe have another formula to divide it by 2 to see if it will divide by 2 to see if you get a whole number or not, if you do then you can just return the first part before the dot ( using split function ) and if the value is less then 1 then obviously the 3 months has not passed between the 2 dates

Excel


Step1. Start Microsoft Excelmag-glass_10x10.gif and open the file you want to change. Step2. Double-click on the cell where you want the total to appear. Step3. Press the = key on the keyboard. This tells Excel that you are entering a formula into the cell. Step4. Enter the formula, then press Enter. Follow the steps below for an example. Step5. Enter an opening parenthesis character: (. Step6. Enter a cell name. For example: =(E2. Step7. Press the + key. Step8. Enter another cell name and a closing parenthesis character: ). For example: =(E2+E3). Step9. Enter a minus sign and a third cell name. For example: =(E2+E3)-E4. Step10. Press the Enter key to accept the formula. The cell will display the sum of the first two cells minus the third cell. $('.Article .Steps .Image').each(function(i,e){ e = $(e); e.find('img').error(function(){ $(this).unbind(); e.remove(); }); });
Tips & Warnings
  • Formulas are just equations. Instead of adding or subtracting numbers you are adding and subtracting the contents of a cell.
  • Excel includes a number of predefined functions to use as well. You can combine the predefined functions into your own formula. (See "How to Use Provided Excel Formulas.")
I hope it helps!!!

BASIC EXCEL FORMULA


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

Any formula in Excel starts with the equals sign ("="). This is how Excel distinguishes between formulas and literal values. Knowing this, you can create lots of formulas using the usual operators of +, -, * and / for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, respectively. Please see the examples below.

Add 1 + 1: =1+1
Add the contents of cell A1 to the contents of cell B1: =A1+B1

Subtract 2 - 1: =2-1
Add the contents of cell A1 from the contents of cell B1: =B1-A1

Multiply 1 times 2: =1*2
Multiply the contents of cell A1 times the contents of cell B1: =A1*B1

I hope this resolves the question. If not, please let me know.

Sorry, I don't clearly understand what you want to do, but if you can explain a little more, I can help. If you want to subtract one cell from a column total, sum the column and subtract the one cell. If there is a need to subtract adjacent column entries, or similar type needs, there are formulas that can do this easily as well. Just a little more info - we'll have a FixYa!

The most likely problem is that you (or somebody) has R1C1 reference style turned on.

In the TOOLS menu, choose OPTIONS and switch to the GENERAL tab. Look for the checkbox labeled R1C1 reference style. If it is checked, this will cause your symptoms.

Just uncheck the box and click OK.

I'm not sure what happens to existing formulas. If you (or somebody) has written formulas that rely on the R1C1 style, I don't know if they automatically get updated to the regular style or not, but that should be easy to discover.

Excel formula


Relative cell reference is address of cell , when copied from one cell to another gets changed automatically.

e.g. Put formula in cell c5 as A5+1 when you copy this from c5 to c6 the address of A5 will automatically changed to A6.

 

Absolute Cell Reference

As above now put formula in cell C5 as $A$5+1 ,now copy this formula from C5 to C6 if you this formula youwill find cell Address of A5 does not changed.

 

Mixed Cell Reference:

If we put Dollar ($) sign before Alphabetic cell address i.e.$c5 then even if you copy this formula in any cell , coloumn (c)  will remains constant.

Similarly if we put Dollar ($) sign before Numeric cell address i.e.c$5  then you copy this formula in any cell row address of the cell remains same.(5).

 

Pl elobarate on remaining two points 'Specific order of formulas ' and 'advance formulas,
