Hi Guys

I have the following in G2:


The formula returns the correct result, which in this case is a number - 2

When I fill down my range, the formula copies correctly, but every result is the same. 2.

However, if I go to the next cell down (G3) and activate it by pressing F2, and then hit Enter, the result changes and is now correct.

Any ideas whats going wrong?

I have a spreadsheet that when I copy the formula, it copies correctly
(changes the cells it should subtract), however, the result stays the same.
It matches the formula I copied it from, even though the cells to calculate
are now different. I even did a paste special and said only formula, but
still, same result. If I actually type in the formula, it works fine, but I
have a lot I need to copy and paste. Is there a way I can fix this?



Here is my issue:

I have a list of SKUs in Excel and I need to add one same word to 500 cells that have pre-existing text in the cells. See example below:

1) List of SKU's in cells:


2) text that needs to be added IN FRONT of every number:


So the result would be:


How do I do that in a formula and not manually? I found another similar thread and I understand how to do it from the instructions there but the same text goes on the back and the result is: 34DF but I need it to be like: DF34.

I am using Office 2007 for mac.

Thank you for the help,


I'm quite experienced Excel user. I've never come across this problem but tinkering in every conceivable way within Excel settings and the solution has eluded me.

I have added a worksheet created elsewhere (it is a form I need printing, with the data coming from 2 sheets I have created from scratch) which has pre formatted cells for Date and Client Name etc.

When I try to reference the cell in this added sheet from my 2 sheets, instead of the result, it always displays the formula, not the result.

I have tried doing it from one of my sheets to reference to this new, and that displays the result and not formula. I can't imagine why it's doing this and I've never seen it happen before.

Formatting cells, giving cells names rather than the usually adequate of reference to the Cell Number doesn't change things. I wonder if I've picked up some legacy protection from the original form but can't see anywhere in the tools etc that's obvious.

There's about 50+ cells that need referencing and I got to get this done for work.

Please help me. This is my first need to post on a Excel Forum as I've always found help or answers from other peeps or internet but this one is making me scratch my head big time.

I have an excel worksheet that adds two other worksheets in a data
triangle. I copied it to create a new data set and used find &
replace to change the worksheet references to the new ones.

The cells still contain the result of the old formula referring to the
previous worksheets. The only way I can get the formula to return the
correct result is to edit (F2) each cell and press enter. Calc now
(F9) does nothing.

I've seen this before, but this time, I need to calculate many
thousands of cells and don't have time for this workaround.

Any ideas?


Don S

Is there an Excel guru that can help with this - its related to "drop down menus"

I have 2 colombs of data.

AT the bottom of the first, I have created a drop down menu using the "data validation" feature in excel.

At the bottom of the second colomb, I have used an "IF" function that returns a result, which depends on what value is chosen from the drop down menu in colomb 1

The problem I have is that I want the TRUE result from the IF function to be another drop down menu, being the data in colomb 2.

How do you write an IF function where the TRUE result is a drop down menu??
I tried to create a drop down menu of colomb2 elsewhere in the spread sheet, and used that cells location as the TRUE value, but this didn't work either...

ANy suggestions??

I'm trying to write a formula that will automatically take a group of football (soccer) scores, compare them with a set of predictions, and then allocate points according to how close the predictions are to the actual scores.

Manchester United 3 - 0 Arsenal
Prediction: 4 - 1
Points: 1

I've found a formula online that works for most scores; the correct score (e.g. 3 - 0), a correct win (e.g. 4 - 1), and in the case of a draw (e.g Man Utd 1 - 1 Arsenal, and the prediction 2 -2), correct draw (but not the correct score). The points are as follows: Correct draw (Prediction = result): 4 Correct win (Prediction = result): 3 Correct win, incorrect score (Winner correct, score not): 1 Correct draw, incorrect sco 1

The formula I found online for all but the correct draw is: =IF(A3&B3=C3&D3),3,IF(AND(A3=B3,C3=D3),1,IF(AND(A3>B3,C3>D3),1,IF(AND(A3<B3,C3<D3),1,0)))))

Could someone help me work out how I can write a formula to add before the above that will check the contents of four cells (the home score, away score, home prediction, away prediction), and if the number in all 4 cells are the same, allocate 4 points? I've tried using averages, but some combinations would void this. I've also used the SUM function, but the same happens, as with MULTIPLYING.

Something like =IF(A3:D3) are equal, 4,0

Below are a few examples of what I mean:
(Result) (Prediction) (Points)
3 - 3 3 - 3 4
2 - 1 3 - 1 1
1 - 0 1 - 0 3
3 - 3 2 - 2 1

Apologies in advance if I haven't explained this clearly enough.



I am looking for assistance in having one cell in a text format equals another cell that contains a time value in hh:mm format.

For example: Cell A1 has a time format (hh:mm) value of 04:00; which is the Start Time. I would like cell D1 to have a text format value of "04:00" (result is dependant upon what is entered in A1). I would duplicate the same formulas to reflect Stop Times in other cells.

My final result is to have another cell (F1) use the Concatenate formula to have the Start and Stop time shown in one cell as "04:00 - 12:30". The times would change based on the Time formated values entered into the Start and Stop time cells.

I have researched this in the board and found many excellent ways to do the opposite, but not convert Time format to Text format. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.


I have an Excel workbook that was created by a former coworker. It includes a macro that, among other things, displays a message box about the 2008 file. The macro runs as soon as the file is opened. I'd like to access that macro to correct the date to 2011 and see what else, if anything, it's doing for me (it doesn't appear to do much). I can find references to creating macros to hide and unhide rows/columns and I found ways to delete all macros in a workbook, but I cannot find anything about unhiding a macro without knowing its name.

Does anyone know of a way to unhide this macro?



How do I enter the value in a cell (say B4) into a formula as a constant so it doesn't change when I copy it down the column?

For example,

B4 = 2.4 (a constant)

This is the result I want:

F6 =C8 + B4*4.243

F7 =C9 + B4*4.243

F8 =C10 + B4*4.243

B4 remains constant as I copy F6 down.

What's the correct formula for F6 so I can copy it down and keep B4 fixed?


I have a very simple pivot table that I am trying to use as a data source for a VLOOKUP request. Unfortunately, every time I do it I get the result #NA. I have tried recreating the results from the pivot table in the worksheet next to it, and am able to use VLOOKUP on them successfully, but as soon as I point the VLOOKUP array to the pivot table, I get the #NA result

Can VLOOKUP be used on pivot tables? If so, is there any special syntax I need to use?


I found this solution for "drop down list with hyperlink" but it did not work.

Perhaps a better solution is to use a workaround that relies on the HYPERLINK function to refer to whatever is selected in the drop-down list. For instance, if you have your data validation drop-down list in cell A1, then you might put the following formula in cell B1:

=HYPERLINK(A1, "Goto Link")

The solution directly above provides exactly what I am looking for
in the field where I write the formula, but it fails to hyperlink.
I have created a drop down list and linked each one of them to a
specific worksheet. When I select them individually they link to
appropriate worksheet. But when I select them in the drop down
list I receive the following error when I select the Hyperlink in
cell B1 as directed above.

"Cannot open the specified file"

Any thoughts?


This is probably an easy question for most of you, but it's killing me. I tried searching before I posted this, but the suggestions given didn't seem to work for me.

I need to look up data from a cell on one Excel sheet, compare it to a list on a 2nd sheet and when they equal, take a value from a different column on the 2nd sheet and drop it back on the 1st sheet. Since that's a horrible explanation, let me try explaining it this way:

Sheet 1
Column A has a long list of code type 1s
Column E has a long list of code type 2s

Sheet 2
Cell C2 has code 1
Cell E2 needs code 2

I know it should take an index/match function, but nothing I try is working. What I'm trying is the following formula in Cell E2 of sheet 2:

=INDEX('Sheet 1'!A:A,MATCH(C2,'Sheet 1"!E:E,0),5)

But all I get is no result. What's driving me bonkers is that if I copy everything over to a single sheet, that formula works fine.

Hi, can anyone help me with the below...

Im looking for a vlookup formula which will give me the maximum number from a list which contains multiple matches, i.e.

Lookup number 1 from column A, then give me the largest number from column B

example table:
1 5
2 2
1 11
3 2
4 5

the result would be 11

thanks all!

I have sheet with rows and each row has formulas based on cells in that row.
I would like to have a new row automatically inserted with the formulas
updating to reference the cells in the new row. Let's say I start with 50
rows and after they are filled up, a new row is added automatically? How do I
do this?

Still learning VBA - I am trying to delete an entire row based on a condition in one cell in the row. Typically I would just filter on that value and delete the rows, but I am not sure if that is a possibility in VBA code. Can you provide the code if not too complex.

Select Cell A1 if value is 100 delete entire row, else skip to next row. Then loop through each row in the spreadsheet till all rows with selected cell equal to 100 are deleted.

Hi everyone....this is my first post here ....and not my last I believe!

My question I believe is easily solvable for you cracks of excel.
I have a worksheet with a list of rows (item#, date, price, etc). In the last column of this list I can put an x for some of the items.
On another worksheet or sheet, I need to autoamtically have a list of the items in the first list above, that have an X in the last columns.
I created an example on a worksheet attached just for you to understand.
I apreciate all the help I can get.
Thank you so much.

Hi All,

I have the below code which deletes all items from a listbox and my excel sheet which is the source for populating that listbox. I am using a option button style for my listbox and the selection style as single .i.e. you can select only one item at one go in the lisbox. I want my macro to delete the selected item from my worksheet .i.e. it's entire row so that it doesn't reflect in my lisbox any more. Below is my code :


Private Sub CommandButton2_Click()
 Dim I As Long
 With ListBox1
 For I = .ListCount - 1 To 0 Step -1
 If .Selected(I) Then
 .RemoveItem I
 Sheets("URL List").Rows(I + 2).EntireRow.Delete
 End If
 Next I
End With
End Sub

Thanks a lot for your help in advance.

Ran into a problem I've never seen before. When dragging a cell across that contains a sum equation the result was the following cells with the same value. Inside the cell it showed what would be the correct new equation, but the value was still from the original cell. Any ideas on what's causing this?

If I double click the cell and then hit enter it will re-total the area and then give me the correct value, but I'd obviously rather is just work right the first time.


I use filters a lot at my work. One thing I've noticed is that if I have something filtered and want to copy and paste only what I see from one column to another column right next to it, it will copy what is filtered, but then paste into the unfiltered portion.

Is there some way to copy only what I see when it's filtered, THEN paste only onto the adjancent cells which is also filtered?

For example let's say i have each of the number below in a cell (Fig 1). And then I hide rows 2 -3, so only 1 and 4 is showingI only see 1 & 4 in column A. I want to copy and paste 1 and 4 to the next column over one row so it looks like Fig. 2 when unhidden. Not like Fig. 3.

Fig. 1


Fig. 2

1 1
4 4

Fig. 3
1 1
2 4

Today I ran into an odd problem. I typed in values for column A rows 1 through 10 then values for column B rows 1 through 10. then in column C, I made the formula C1=A1/B1. The math was correct it showed 542 in the C1 cell. So I dragged that formula down and it showed 542 in all column C cells which is not correct. And when I went to check to see if the formula was correctly dragged it was. For instance, the formula in C2 is =A2/B2 however the value of that cell showed 542 which was not the correct math/value.

But it gets even more weird. When I click on the Column C cells and then it shows the formula up top in the formula bar and if I put my cursor anywhere in the formula bar and hit Return the formula does not change however the correct value then appears in the Column C cell. It is like the act of putting the cursor in the formula activates it to work properly but until it is activated that C cell shows the value of the cell which it was dragged down from.

This is quite bizarre. Has anyone ever seen this before? I have no idea what is going on. I ran a scan for viruses and none were found. I tried it on several new/different spreadsheets but it keeps happening.

Thanks for any tips on this.

I have a formula in cell C1 (=A1/B1). I want to copy this formula down to row C20, however rows A2 to A20 are empty so C2 to C20 show (#DIVO!). Is there something I can put in the formula to make column C be blank until the data is enter into Columns A & B?

Hi Excel experts,
I am working on a worksheet, and would like to have an entire row transferred to another worksheet based upon a certain cell's value.

Having searched through the many solved threads on this site, I attempted to customize some of the code to my worksheet. Not being proficient in Macro/VBA, I failed. I figured I would ask for help, and see if anyone can provide what I am looking for.

Basically, I am attempting to construct a "work in process" file, and would like all completed work to be deleted from the work in process sheet, and transferred to a sheet that contains a running list of all work completed.

Attached is an example of what I am working on. I would like Column Q (Status) to determine if a row can be moved to a sheet that contains the list of all work completed, and eliminated from the original sheet. Once Status is updated to "Complete", it would be helpful to be able to run a macro/click a button that would perform the transfer.

Can anyone assist?


I am trying to filter a list of records by the value in a cell and then (for the filtered result(s)) change the value in column Y just for the filtered results. This is the code I have at present which filters the records OK but I can't fathom what I need to do to ensure I only chnage the value of the cell(s) in column Y?

[CODE]ActiveSheet.Range("$A$1:$DC$5000").AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:="GI255"
'After filtering I want to change the value in column Y for only the filtered entries CODE]

Hi there,

I have a spreadsheet with some cells setup with a drop-down list containing
Y, N or N/A

This is being used on a TabletPC but if I make a mistake or need to change
back to a blank field I have to invoke the soft keyboard, activate the cell
and hit backspace then close the soft keyboard - quite a long-winded
procedure just to change an incorrect choice!

What I would like to do is add a blank to the list so if I have to revert
back to a blank I can just use the stylus to choose a blank from the chooser

How do I add the option of inputting a blank from the Data Validation List
bearing in mind I am using the Data Validation Source box for entering my
choices directly and not specifying a range of cells?

I have tried adding "" and even a space to no avail.

Although not a betting man I would wager there is a simple 'fix' for this
but things are only simple if you know how in the first instance! ;^)

Thanks & regards,
