Nested If Statement With Multiple Or Conditions 

Nested If Statement With Multiple Or Conditions  Excel 
View Answers 
Hi.
I have a condition where I want to create a nested IF statement that takes into account multiple OR conditions with data in various adjacent and nonadjacent cells. I need something like the literal statement below, that can be easily appended, if I decided to add other cells/criteria.
=IF (C8 ) contains "INF" OR IF (C8) contains "Main" or IF (F9) equals "(blank)" OR IF (F9) = "XXXXXX", "Don't Count", "Count")
thanks in advance for any solutions/advice...!

Hello, I'm trying to count the number of times a name appears across multiple worksheets but I can't seem to figure it out.
I have 6 sheets to count and all the names are in column A (from A1:A100) on each sheet. The names are not in a particular order.
On sheet 7 I want to have a cell beside each persons name that counts the number of times their name appeared on the other 6 sheets.
For example Sheet 7 (called total) would have
Joe 5 (where 5 is the outcome of the formula I'm looking for to count all the times "Joe" appears on sheets 16).
I have it counting per sheet with =COUNTIF(A1:A130,"name") but this is not quite what I am looking for.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
Edit: I am using Excel 2007 w/ windows XP

Hey everyone  how would I create an IF statement that looks at the first two text characters of a particular cell?
I am trying to write a formula that uses both an if statement and a vlookup statement.
It's for a house cleaning price list, with two sets of prices. I want the formula to say if the value in E7 is R, i want to lookup the value for the house in the second column. If the value in the cell is anything else, i want to lookup the value for the house in the third column.
So in sense, my formula should look like =IF (E7=1,"=VLOOKUP(A10,'Clean Prices'!$A$2:$C$58,2,FALSE)","=VLOOKUP(A10,'Clean Prices'!$A$2:$C$58,3,FALSE)")
But it doesn't work. Is it possible to nest a vlookup in an if statement?

So I've got some data, which has the approximate form of a sine function. I want to find all the xaxis intercepts. I tried using the intercept function and swapping around the y values for the x values, but it only returns 1 value (so I'd guess it uses a linear regression to estimate a single line through the axis).
I was thinking of trying a nested if/and statement but I haven't quite figured out how to do it. Basically I want to identify the two values where it switches from positive to negative and also indentify the values where it goes negative to positive, I can then fit a straight line between them to find a better approximation of the intercept (though it might not be necessary). Preferably I'd like it all one function as I'm not doing it in VBA (I might do later though, we'll see).
Can anyone suggest how I'd find these value or the xintercept. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

In Excel there is a difference between cells that are blank (= "") and that are empty. You can make blank cells empty by selecting them and pressing the delete key, but I need a fast way to do this on all blank cells in a large worksheet. The only way I have found is with a VBA macro that loops through every cell, tests for '.Value = "" ' and then uses the '.Clear()' function, but doing this on 30 columns x 10000 rows is far too slow. Any solutions?
(The reason I need to do this is for importing into Access, the database treats empty cells as NULL which is what I want. Blank (but not empty) cells screw the import process up.)

Hi,
I need the necessity do delete a sequence of sheets in my workbook.
If I use this code:
With ActiveWorkbook
If .Worksheets.Count >= 5 Then
For n = 5 To .Worksheets.Count
Worksheets(n).Delete
Next n
End If
End With
I receive a confirmation message box with this message:
"Data may exist in the sheet(s) selected for deletion. To permanently delete the data, press Delete" [DELETE] [CANCEL]
I wish to delete all sheets without receiving any message.
Is it possible?
Many thanks in advance for your kind support.

Giovanni

I am using the following formula to calculate the number of days between a date and the current date: =DATEDIF(A1,TODAY(),"d") What do I add to the formula to leave cell blank if no date is entered in the cell for calculation.
I saw two threads in this forum that asked this question, with no good answer. I am posting this solution for anybody still struggling with this.
The question:
How can you prevent a cell's contents from overflowing into the next cell?
Of course, you can make the column wider or turn on text wrapping, but you might not want to. Each of those solutions can mess up the layout of your sheet. You may just want to truncate the value.
Some people have suggested putting a space in the next cell. This is unnecessary, a pain in the but, and will mess up any ISBLANK type formulas, among other things.
The solution:
Select the cells in question and turn on text wrapping (Format>Cells>Alignment>Wrap Text).
Now select the row(s) in question and manually set the row height, by right clicking the row number and selecting "Row Height". Check the height of an adjacent row for a good value.
Your cells will now not spill over either horizontally or vertically. They will simply truncate anything that doesn't fit.
Be careful now, because parts of your data may be hidden. This can cause its own set of problems if one or two digits are neatly hidden away. Think ahead if other people might be using this sheet, and not be expecting to have some data hidden.

Hi! I am new to Excel and I am creating fillable forms in excel which are protected so that users canonly input data in certain cells. I am using Excel 2003. The users told me that they do not want text to go beyond the edge of the page when they are inputting data. They also want the words to wrap when they reach the end of the sentence. I am also using check boxes(yes/no) and Ifind it difficult to make the adjacent cells fillable only Thanks for your help and correct me if I am wrong as I am new to this board.
Here's my formula... =SUM(S7)T5
If that number is less than 100, I want it to show as blank.
Any help?
Right now, I'm trying to accomplish this by making a conditional format...meaning when my cell equals less than 100 I make the cell color and font the same (so it looks blank, but its not). When I print it, it still shows the negative value.
Thanks.

Hi, all  I have been banging my head on the desk over this one...it's gotta be so simple, right? Have searched online, and on Mr. Excel, but still can't get this right.
I need a formula in cell L3 that says "IF cell K3 is greater than 25 but less than 30, K3, otherwise, blank." Cell K3 currently contains the value 30. My formula in L3 currently is =IF(K3>25,K3,IF(K3

Is it possible to apply a filter to multiple sheets within the same Excel workbook, using the same filter criteria?
For example, suppose you have tables of data on 3 different tabs, all having the same headings. Suppose one of the headings is "gender". If you apply a filter to the table on Sheet 1, to only show the rows containing the word "female", is it possible to have the tables on Sheets 2 and 3 automatically update to only show the "female" rows? Or would you have to manually update the filter criteria in Sheets 2 and 3?
I hope this makes sense. Thank you in advance for any help.

Hi,
I am using
ActiveSheet.ShowAllData
in a piece of VBA and it causes an error if the sheet does not have a filter applied! Is there an if statement I can use to check if the data is filtered?
Thanks  this site is an absolute life saver!

I have a merged cell which contains a text with multiple lines.
I want to split the lines into multiple rows.Each line should come in a different row.
I want to do this using macro.Is there is anyway to do this?
There is an option to split the cell into multiple cells on the basis of the delimiter, but there is no option to split them into rows.

Hi There
Im trying to Sum the total of a number of cells using the following formula:
=SUM(F57,H57,J57,L57,P57,N57,D57,,R57,V57,T57,X57)
however some of those cells might be blanks as they are dependant on other data. The probelm im having is that when they are blank i am getting the the sum as 0. i know this isnt the case but dont know how to rectify my code.

I need to insert 5 blank rows repeatedly between every existing data rows
for approximately 300 rows.
If I go about doing the repeat shortcut "Control+Y", it just repeats
inserting ONE row only between the consecutive data row.
Is there some command, which helps me highlight all the rows & allows me to
insert 5 blank rows between every consecutive existing data row?
Thanks in advance for your kind advice.

Hi,
How would I concatenate a large range of cells, most of which are blank, and add a comma between each cell's value?
My range is E2:Y2 (I will be filling down), but most of the cells are blank. For example, if I F2=9, I2=11 and X=25, I would like to display them as: 9,11,25.
If in the next row, G=10, K=15 and Y=27, they should look like this: 10,15,27.
Thanks in advance!
