Need some formula advice for two part problem
I hope someone can help me out with this problem ?
I want to place a date in a block when another block reads 100%.
say block B4 reads 100%, I want to place a date in D4 to represent when
(Days360) that block (B4) reached 100%.
Hope someone can help, thanks.
I came up with this solution:
Format cell B4 as percent, D4 as Date 3/14/01.
In cell D4 type formula:
"=IF(B4=100%,NOW(),"")" do not add the first " or the last "
The cell D4 will remain empty("") until B4 is equal to 100%.

Using Excel 2003. Trying to add up home accounts. Want to copy formulae from
one column to another. Can Excel do this automatically? eg =SUM(B20+C16)
to =SUM(C20+D16) to =SUM(D20+E16) where B, C and D are months, line 16
is the sub total and 20 is the total that I would like to carry through to
the next month. Do I have to keep inputting =SUM etc, or is there someway of
replicating this formula when the computer can change the letter of the
column automatically? Help!
your formula of =SUM(B20+C16) can be corrected to either
or, better still

Why is Excel not always just giving me what's in the target cell?

Could you explain what you mean in a bit more detail?
For instance, will the entry on the Master sheet be made in the same

If not, you can download an Excel Viewer from the Microsoft web site,

Instead of a UDF use a macro. Change columns(2) to columns(1) to change the

it could be that your numbers are formatted as text - copy a blank cell from
