How do i subtract two cells and progress down a row by a day so the next day the formula subtracts the current day and previous day?


You have to start the sequence with a slightly different formula because there is no preceding value for Monday.

How to delete the data but keep the formulas


Formulas don't usually contain data, but display some transformation of data held in cells that do contain the data.
ie cell C3 may have a formula that says "=C1-C2"

Which means that C3 will display the result of the operation of subtracting the content of C2 from the value held in C1"

Clear out only the cells that contain the source values (C1 & C2) and your formula (C3) will remain.

When I create a formula in a cell, hit enter, I get #VALUE. How do I get the actual result to appear, instead of #VALUE?


#VALUE? is an error indication meaning that Excel can't process the formula. It is most likely the result of a bad cell reference in your formula, for example, you may be trying to perform mathematical operations on a cell that contains non-numeric text data.

>>>Save it as a file on the computer - Select the cell where you want to insert the function - go to Insert - Function - User Defined - Spellnumber - Select the reference value against my number and type true in incrupees.


It would give the value in Word format.

The limiation is it can be only use in teh same workbook.

Next time when you want to use the formula, either you have to redo the process or use this workbook and copy paste data in another one.

Let me know if you face any difficulty.

Problem coming in subtraction


You just have to use the subtraction formula. The formula is as follows:

=A1 - A2

Where A1 and A2 are cells that contain the data that you would like subtracted. If you want just two numbers subtracted you can type them directly:

=20 - 10

for more information look at the subtraction section of the following link.

Getting the excel formula


Suppose the value for $ is stored in cell A3. Your formula would look like this: =(A3+A3*0.25)*1.5

The equals sign at the beginning of the formula is necessary. And if you want the result to be formatted as currency, you can do so by right-clicking the cell or column, format cell, number tab, choose currency.
