#### What's wrong in this formula???? #5

```Hm....

Using this formula:
=IF(J3>2,G3*(J3*25),IF(J3>3,G3*(J3*50),IF(J3>4,G3*(J3*75),IF(J3>5,G3*(J19*100)))))

I get this:

G3 = 3
J3 returns result of 4
So I should get (3*150) = 450....but I get 600.00

Same J3, and G3 = 2.
I should have (2*150) = 300 ... but I get 400

G3=3
J3 returns 3
I should get (3*125) = 375... but I get 450

Any idea

```hi,
I see 2 things
1. all the numbers are greater than 2 so it is hitting the
first condition every time.
in this situation i would try if(J3 = 2,......
2. you don't have a 2nd contitions in your last if.
try......If(J2 >5,G3*(J19*100),0)
regards

```When doing this I always start with the largest number and work my way down.
>5 >4 >3
but why don't you just try what I offered before?
=G19*MIN(200,50+25*J19)

How do I make Outlook send the correct email address and not a business account that I do not want going out with my messages I'm not sure if I understand your question correctly -- are you asking how to force Outlook to send messages through one account rather than another?

formatting question #5
I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to create a custom format for names. I use an ODBC import to obtain full names of people, and it comes in as such: "last_name ; first_name". I can't change that order in ODBC, thus I wind up with one column having both names, seperated by a semi-colon. I can code a solution, I was just wondering if there was a custom format capable of reversing the order of the text on either side of the semicolon. Any info would be appreciated, -Raj Hi Raj, This should work =TRIM(RIGHT(D17,LEN(D17)-(FIND(";",D17,1))))&" "...

In the Money 2004 check register it reports the last download date as well as the balance in the top left corner. The only problem is that it is totally wrong.

I screwed something up and need help big-time. Somehow the default position of the cursor when I start a new document - or Outlook mail message - is in the right center part of the page. In fact, if I even open a document, it's formatted with everything scrunched over to the right. I can backspace and get the cursor to the right and it's not a big problem on documents with simple formatting, but for some complex documents, simply backspacing makes the formatting even worse.

Keeping data without losing Formula's
I have a worksheet (named monthly) with a column of data under a certain month (which will change each time data is entered - stocktake). However this column needs to be edited each month and has formula's in it so it will work (not always the same data in the column). I decided to put this data into a yearly sheet under the particular month. The only way I can do it at the moment is to copy and paste special.

What Am I Doing Wrong?
The application I'm modifying is a fairly standard example of an MFC MDI app. There are several CToolBars created in MainFrm.cpp. The code to respond to the buttons on these toolbars is in the View.cpp file. One of these toolbars I modified to contain a slider. I derived a new class, CViewToolBar, from CToolBar and modified it to have a slider. I'm having problems with two major things: the correct way to include the new class information so that MainFrm knows about it to create the new toolbar, and how to get the view to respond to WM_HSCROLL messages from the slider.

Excel formula 11-22-09

How can I format the first name on the list and copy or drag it down with each row changing to the name on that row? Example: Adam...

Money 2004: I have recurring bills with estimated amounts and splits. When I change the amount/splits and submit for payment, the check is being handled just fine through MSN Bill Pay. When I download the consummated transaction from Wells Fargo, however, Money is pulling in my ESTIMATED splits instead of my ACTUAL splits for that payment. Hence the splits never match the actual payment amount, and I get a warning. What a pain. This problem started when I switched from Wells Fargo bill pay to MSN. As I see it, though, it's Money's job to keep track of the splits internally, t...

result of formula in cell instead of formula itself...
I've got a spreadsheet where I need to search a table and return a value from a particular column in that table. Vlookup appears to be exactly what I'm looking for, however the first argument I need to pass it (the value to search for) is located in cell N2. Cell N2 is itself a formula and it appears that it is making vlookup fail. Is there a way I can tell the vlookup function to only use the result of the formula in that cell instead of following the formula itself?

(DS/IS) consistency adjuster prior to moving Public folders from 5.5 to E2k3 and Nov 2004 Update Rollup
We're moving our exchange system from 5.5 to 2003 and we are ready to move the public folders. In my readings it says to run the (DS/IS) consistency adjuster on the 5.5 side to remove sids from the PF tree but the consistency adjuster does more than this which may have some side effects. Exchange 5.5 has a new rollup package dated Nov/Dec 2004 which has a fix for the consistency adjuster and exchange 2003 SP1. This rollup package fixes problems with the (DS/IS) consistency adjuster as read here: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=836489 The rollup states that the previous May 2004 ...

Exchange 2003 OWA on IIS 5.0
I recently had to rebuild my Exchange database, and afterwards users were complaining that they were getting different results when accessing their account through OWA as opposed to Outlook. I found a KB article about blowing away the current OWA virtual directories and having the server automatically recreate them. I attempted to do this, but it turns out the instructions were for IIS 6, and I'm running W2K with IIS 5. The virtual directories were not automatically created. I currently have no OWA and don't know how to re-establish that service on IIS 5. Any ideas??? Hi, ...

Cell Formats in formulas
I have a worksheet set up with formulas to automatically copy values from another cell as it is changed. Is there a way to include the format of the reference cell (font, color) when referencing it in a formula. Example: when I change to a different symbol font in the referenced cell, the referencing cells only change the value, not the font, so I don't end up with the correct symbols in the referencing cell. No, it's not possible to do that using formulas, only format formulas can do are number formats and only using the text function Regards, Peo Sjoblom "C. Lewis"...
