Help please.

I've done a excel spreadsheet, where across the sheet in a line with maybe a few letters 'x' or 'H' or 'BH' and the next line will have the same. This could be from line 8 to line 121.

But in a column say 'T8' to 'T121' I want to count the total number of 'x's in that column, also 'H' and 'BH' giving the total individually. ie:- x=3 H=6 BH=4 for column 'T' and the same with the other columns.

Can this be done, please.

A:Solved: Help required with Excel adding letters in columns

you could do a count in seperate columns

in A1
=COUNTIF(T8:T121, "X")
in A2
=COUNTIF(T8:T121, "H")
in a3
=COUNTIF(T8:T121, "BH")

Ok I am trying to print a spreadsheet format list. I have about 30000
title-artist entries in 2 columns. I am basically trying to print pages 1 & 2, 3-4, 5-6 and so on the same page without shrinking them way down. I want it to be just like I printed 2 columns but with 4 instead. I want to use the left side of the page for page 1 and the left side for page 2. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I decided to hide the first couple of columns in the spreadsheet. But for some reason I can't get them back. I tried selecting the first visible column, the whole spreadsheet, the View menu. Nothing. The columns won't unhide. And yes I need their data.

For the record, hiding and then unhiding works fine when it's not the first column.

I have a spreadsheet that I wish to compare 2 columns and bring the information from the 3rd. For example, if A6 is equal to an item in G1:G98, then the number in B6 should equal the corresponding number in H1:h98. The formula I used is =VLOOKUP(A8,$G$1:$H$98,2,FALSE) It works great except the problem I have is sometimes there is no corresponding value in G1:G98. In that case I would like it to enter the number 0.

I have been entering information into a template in Excel. The template was created by someone at work. This template has merged columns. I had no problem entering the information until I added two extra rows within the template. The added two rows are not merged but the merge function is grayed out and I am unable to select it. What could be the problem and how can I correct it?

On the attached spreadsheet, I need a total count of baselined desktops (minus the ones that have been deleted) problem is how do I get it to look at one record, mark that that agent had been a baselined one, but is now deleted, so don't count it. I can't just remove the deleted ones, cause I want my customer to know which agents have disappeared. Take a look at the formula in B2 for a general idea. That formula doesn't work cause it just adds everything together. I need it to be smart enough to Total the Baselined Agents and then Subtract the agents that are baselined and deleted per field. Any questions let me know. Look at B2 to get an idea and see if I'm on the right track.

I need to move all data to columns A&B:

- If there is data in columns C & D, move it to the foot of columns A&B.
- Then, if there is data in columns E & F, move it to the foot of columns A&B.

I've managed to do this using hard-coded column references, but it involves a lot of reptetition.

Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(1) = Cell.Value

gives you actual pairs in A2:B6.

I'm using some software to export payment information into a CSV file. This file needs to be in the bank's specified SIF format which requires all the data to be in one column.

Dear guys,

I was wondering if there is a way to change Columns to Text. I know that from the last question i posted here a while back, that we could change a string of text in to many columns. So what i would like to do now is the opposite.

Referring to the excel spreadsheet attached, I basically want to change columns A, B and C in to G.

At first i tried using the formula "=(A3 x B3 x C3)" and obviously that didnt work if not i wouldnt be posting here. How would you pick values up from a cell and then use them in another cell something like =A3 which will bring the value of that cell into another cell.

A:Excel2007 Adding Drop Down List for Multiple Columns

I take it you mean each cell has a drop down list from which the user can select?

If so, I presume you are using data validation and the list option from within it?

Hi I found the attached vba code on the net and modified it slightly It s Excel Adding Hyperlinks Solved: VBA using purpose is to print all files contained within Solved: Adding Hyperlinks using Excel VBA a folder to WorkSheet of the active WorkBook The code works like a charm However I would like the listed files to be hyperlinks so I could open up each file using the worksheet To this end I recorded a macro that creates a hyperlink as outlined below Sub HyperlinkTest ActiveSheet Hyperlinks Add Anchor Selection Address quot Corrective Action Requests xlsx quot TextToDisplay quot Name of Audito s quot End Sub I then added this into the original code and tried numerous ways to get this to work but to no avail I just can t figure out how to fit this into the existing code to produce hyperlinks instead of just plain text If anyone can help me better understand how I can get this to work the way I want it would be greatly appreciated Thanks nbsp

A:Solved: Adding Hyperlinks using Excel VBA

I've managed to figure out how to tie in the additional code and get the results I wanted. If any one is interested, this is the code that worked for me.

Sub LoopThroughFolder1()
Dim r As Integer
Dim fileSystemObject
Dim FolderObj
Dim fileOBj
Dim arrFileName
r = 2
Set fileSystemObject = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set FolderObj = fileSystemObject.getfolder("G:\QMS_Files\Record_Logs")
For Each fileOBj In FolderObj.Files 'loop over the files in the folder
If Not fileOBj.Attributes And 2 Then 'only show files that are not hidden
Cells(r, 1).Value = fileOBj.Path
arrFileName = Split(fileOBj.Path, "\")
Cells(r, 2).Value = arrFileName(UBound(arrFileName)) 'Get the File Name

Cells(r, 1).Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=Cells(r, 1), Address:=Cells(r, 1).Text, TextToDisplay:=Cells(r, 2).Text

Columns(2).Delete 'get rid of extra column
End If
r = r + 1
Next fileOBj
End Sub

The only thing now is to figure out how I can leave the path the way it is, but get the code to read the drive letter in case I move the set of files to another computer with a different drive. Like if I took the whole set of files and put them on a memory stick and then plugged it into another computer which may end up being drive D, E, F, G or H.

Has anyone got any idea of how this could be done?

Thanks in advance!Click to expand...

Could not open your example file.

However I believe, your problem can be solved by using SUMIF function.
Lets say when ever there is bank charge the statement is using the term "bank chaarges". Plus this text always appear in column A and the corresponding values appear in column B.
The formula where you want the total for bank charges levied will be:
=sumif(A1:A20,"Bank Charges",B1:B20)
(assuming that the range is the first 20 rows)

Hi, first time poster long time reader...

The problem I'm having is that I need to be able to check for certain values in Col A (i.e. value1, value2, value3, etc) and then add the corresponding values in Col F together for a total.

For example...

A23: Value1 ------------------------- F23: 2
A24: Value2 ------------------------- F24: 9
A25: Value1 ------------------------- F25: 14
A26: Value4 ------------------------- F26: 38
A27: Value1 ------------------------- F27: 5

You'll see there are three cells in Col A set to Value1. I would need a cell to hold the sum of each value in Col F for every row that contains each Value#. The output for Value1 would be 21 (F23 + F25 + F27).
I tried variations of VLOOKUP but that only returns one of the values in Col F and since I need to get totals relative to the Value# in Col A, that doesn't really work.

Thanks in advance!

Hi everyone,

There are another table that does some calculations based on the first table. Although the calculations is set to manual, when I send data to the table , I have an impression that the second table is recalculated too, because it takes a lot to add the data (but if I remove the second table it takes just a few seconds compared to 1,5 minutes).
The same is with the table resize.

A:how to divide row into 2 columns in excel

Not sure I follow what you need to do, but....

highlight a group of cells in a row, such as 3A, 3B, and 3C.

Then right click and choose "format cells". Then choose the alignment tab. Then choose "merge cells".

That will combine 3A, 3B, and 3C into a single cell.

Is that what you are trying to do?

You can do the same thing with cells in a column--combine them into a single cell.

You can do that with any combination of cells.

You can then type in whatever you need into a cell and align that typed text to either the left, right, or center of the merged cells.

First Tab, the data - Second Tab, the form I want generated.

In the first Tab, Column A is a date. Columns B and C are TEXT Data
For the second tab, I want to create formula that reads like this:

If first tab Column A = a specified date, then bring in the information in first Columns B and C.

If the date appears five times, can it bring the information in and create five rows? (or am I restricted to only cell to cell formulas?)
It sounds like I should just do a simple cut/paste sort of thing and not create a difficult formula, but I really need a formula, because ultimately it will be expanded beyond two simple tabs.

Please HELP,

This problem's going way beyond my excel knowledge. and beyond my friend "ASAP utilities"
Can someone please tell me how to merge 2 Column using a key factor " i.e number".

Here I have 4 column's total.
The left 2 have the correct order/ The Right 2 are in the wrong order.
I need to fix that using their common factor/#.

I have attached the file here.

I would be very happy to fix this ASAP.
How do I do it???

A:help merging columns in Excel 03 !!!

I have made some mods to your sheets as follows

I created a reference table by
extracting the number part from column E using Find looking for a space and then using Mid to select the number - see the cacl for ref table
Then created a reference table tab - to use as a lookup
Then on sheet1 used vlookup to get the column D & E to align with column A

I would like to merge two columns in excel, to create a third column that has alternating cells originating from the first and second column.

To make it a little clearer: I have values in column A and B

In column E, I would like to see the following result:
E1 = value of A1
E2 = Value of B1
E3 = value of A2
E4 = Value of B2
E5 = value of A3
E6 = Value of B3

The attachment to this post contains the result I want to obtain.

Has anyone ever encountered missing columns in Excel? I received an Excel file from a co-worker and the columns are lettered from A to H, then L, then from T on. I have never seen a spreadsheet with missing columns before. I am having problems printing the spreadsheet because it cuts off after the L column. My guess is that there is a page bread in one of the missing columns. Can anyone help me with this?

A:Missing Columns in Excel

Click on the top left box, where the rows and columns meet. That should select everything. Then right click on one of the rows or columns and choose unhide rows/columns. That's it

Could you please help me with the following question. I have a simple division formula (=A1/A2) and would like to add a symbol, "x" after that, so the format of the cell would be: 1.23x. My problem is that I can't use & "x" because the format of the number (2 decimal places) no longer holds, and I get something like: 1.234445555x if I use (=A1/A2 &"x").

Could anyone please help me with the solution?

Thank you!

Hi all,

I'm looking for a way in either Excel or Word 2010 to add text to a line before the text. So, for example I have something like this:


And then I want to add "1 " before each line in a way that is copy pastable, so it looks like so:

1 Name1
1 Name2
1 Name3

Is there anyway to do this. it's mostly just to help with copying text from Word/Excel documents onto forums so it formats correctly. Any help at all is much appreciated


A:Solved: Word/Excel 2010 Adding text before each line in a Document

Hi Matt,
It's probably a little cleaner to do it in Excel than in Word, but also a few extra steps. In Word:

You can run a find a replace. Without including the quotes, find "^p" (the paragraph symbol) and replace with "^p1 " (there's a space after the 1). This replaces the paragraph break at the end of each line with another paragraph break and then "1 " at the beginning of the next line. The problem with this method is that the first line won't have a 1 in front of it (because there's no paragraph break before that line) and the last line will have a stray 1 after it. But this should be relatively minor cleanup.

Alternatively, in Excel:

Insert a column to the left of your names. Without including the quotes, enter "1" in the first cell and copy it down your spreadsheet. Insert a column to the right of your names and enter this formula (assuming your names are now in column B):

=A1&" "&B1

This should give you the result you're looking for in column C. Hope that helps.

I could really use help on the following-- I have huge excel files that need to be rearranged into proper format. Currently they are in this format (using a very simplified example):

Column 1 Column 2 Column 3
Person1 socks 3
Person1 pants 4
Person1 ties 10
Person1 hats 6
Person2 socks 2
Person2 pants 3
Person2 ties 1
Person2 hats 7
The format I would like to have is as follows:
Column 1 Column 2 Column 3 Column 4 Column 5....
Person1 Person2 Person3 Person4
socks 3 2
pants 4 3
ties 10 1
hats 6 7

... and so forth.

I'm not very handy with Excel and am wondering is there anyway I can automate this task to save myself a lot of cutting and pasting? I have huge amounts of data, it's akin to processing 500 people with over 10,000 clothing items.
Thank you so much in advance.... this would really save me weeks and weeks of time.

A:Dividing a huge Excel row into columns- pls help!

The thing to do would be to write a macro in VBA, I might be able to make one for you but I'll need to know all the different categories of thing (hats, ties etc.) and whether each person comes up the same number of times, one after another, or whether its random, because it could get too complicated and time consuming to be able to help.

I am a novice at excel I have A 2003 columns Excel Combining in throught A as first names and B through B as last names in a spread sheet I want to make a column of First and Last Names together either by itself like a new column C or Combining columns in Excel 2003 by utilizing either A or B columns I have found the formula A amp quot quot amp B but I don t know what to do with it When I paste that formula into C of a blank column C it gives me first and last name of A and B but how do I get this to replicate itself down the column C to change all seperate first and last names into one cell each containing first and last names Sorry if this is a very basic question but I simply am not that familiar with how excel formulas work yet and how to get them to work over multiple cells Thanks for your help in advance LettuceChat nbsp

A:Combining columns in Excel 2003

Leave the =A1&" "&B1 formula in C1. Place your cursor over the bottom right corner of cell C1. It should change to a thin "+" sign. Press and hold down the left mouse button. Drag the cursor down to cell C226 and release the mouse button. This should copy the same formula structure into each cell in column C while incrementing the row number references.
