#### If statement formulas

```I have two sheets in a workbook.  One called Availability, and the other
called schedule.  The availability tells what time my employees are
available to work and it look like this:
A1                B1          C1
Name        Start         End
Tom            6 AM    2 PM
Jason           9 AM    5 PM
John            1 PM       9 Pm
Susan           8 AM      4 PM

In the schedule sheet look similar to availability sheet accept it has one
more column that will if I schedule an employee that will have a time
conflict with availablity sheet.  Look like this.

A1                B1          C1        D1                        E1
F1
Name        Start         End
Jason         8AM    5 PM      Not available before 9 am
Susan         8 AM    6 PM    Not Available after   4 pm
John            6 Am    12 PM   Only available from 1pm to 9 pm
Tom            6 AM    2 PM

Notice I added three more column.  One tell a statement such as "Not
Available Before", "Not Available After", and "Only Available From".  The
other two column tell if Column D has a statement such as "Not Available
before", then column E specify the time that particular employee not
available before what time.  Similary, with "Not Available after" column E
specify the time that particular employee not available after.  Similary, if
column D statement says the time is out of range or "Only Availbable From",
specify the start time in E column and end time in F column.  If time is
within range then don't do anything or display blank.  Notice the names of
my employees in shedule sheet are not in order with the name of my employees
in the availability sheet.  I probably need vlookup formulas as well?

What formulas do I put in cells of Column D, E, F the get the deserve effect
from above?  Thanks

```Give this a try...

Put this in D2
==================
=IF(A2="","",IF(AND(B2>=INDEX(Availability!A\$2:C\$100,MATCH(A2,Availability!A\$2:A\$5,0),2),C2<=INDEX(Availability!A\$2:C\$100,MATCH(A2,Availability!A\$2:A\$5,0),3)),"",IF(OR(B2>INDEX(Availability!A\$2:C\$100,MATCH(A2,Availability!A\$2:A\$5,0),3),C2<INDEX(Availability!A\$2:C\$100,MATCH(A2,Availability!A\$2:A\$5,0),2)),"Only
available
from",IF(B2<INDEX(Availability!A\$2:C\$100,MATCH(A2,Availability!A\$2:A\$5,0),2),"Not
available before","Not available after"))))

Put this in E2
==================
=IF(A2="","",IF(D2="Not available
before",INDEX(Availability!A\$2:C\$100,MATCH(A2,Availability!A\$2:A\$5,0),2),IF(D2="Not
available
after",INDEX(Availability!A\$2:C\$100,MATCH(A2,Availability!A\$2:A\$5,0),3),IF(D2<>"",INDEX(Availability!A\$2:C\$100,MATCH(A2,Availability!A\$2:A\$5,0),2),""))))

Put this in F2
==================
=IF(D2="Only available from","  to
"&TEXT(INDEX(Availability!A\$2:C\$100,MATCH(A2,Availability!A\$2:A\$5,0),3),"h:mm
AM/PM"),"")

An then copy them down. As written, the formulas will work down to Row 100.

```Just to clarify my "the formulas will work down to Row 100"... that is these
formulas lookup names and times down to Row 100 on the Availability
worksheet... the formulas themselves can be copied down on the Schedule
sheet as far as needed.

```I have created a workbook based on your example with a user-defined function
that returns the conflict description in column D (I incorporated the
start/end times as appropriate, so there was no need to populate columns E &
F. If you need those times to appear in columns E & F instead, I can help you
do that.)

Here is a link to the sample workbook:

Hope this helps,

Here is the sample result.  For the imformation in the availability sheet:

Tom 6:00 AM 2:00 PM
Jason 9:00 AM 5:00 PM
John  1:00 PM 9:00 PM
Dave  8:00 AM 4:00 PM

In the schedule sheet

Jason 9:00 AM 5:00 PM
Tom 10:00 AM 10:00 PM      Not available after 6:00 AM
Dave  8:00 AM 3:00 PM
John  7:00 AM 4:00 PM      Not available before 1:00 PM

For Tom it should display not available after 2:00 PM.  It there is bug
somewhere.  The formulas is so long that I got dizzy just by looking at
it...hehehehe

```I'm not sure what to tell you... on my system, with the data you posted, I

```OK, this one should work well. Please note, for formatitng ease, I have
separated the "to into a an extra column, so we go out to column G instead of
F.

Change "Sheet2" to your referenced sheet name.

in cell D2 enter:

=IF(OR(VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet2!A:B,2,FALSE)>C2,VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet2!A:C,3,FALSE)<B2),"Only
Available from",IF(VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet2!A:B,2,FALSE)>B2,"Not Available
before",IF(VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet2!A:C,3,FALSE)<C2,"Not Available
after"&VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet2!A:C,3,FALSE),"")))

in cell E2, enter:

=IF(OR(D2="Not Available before",D2="Only Available
from"),VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet2!A:B,2,FALSE),IF(D2="Not Available
After",VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet2!A:C,3,FALSE),""))

in cell F2, enter:

=IF(D2="Only Available from"," to","")

in cell G2, enter:

=IF(D2="Only Available from",VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet2!A:C,3,FALSE),"")

```Thanks so much Rick

However, here is the twist.   In the availability sheet, I only have
availability for 4 of my employees in a single day only which is Monday.  I
want to go across and fill their availablity from Tues day to sunday in the
availability sheet.

Simililary on schedule sheet, I want to go across and fill their schedule
from Tues-Sun.

To result the time conflict, I created a three sheet Call "Conflict" and I
put the the three formulas you gave me under Monday and stress them across
to Sunday in relations with availability and schedule sheet.  How do I do
this since the formulas you gave me only work for monday?

Thanks

```Your initial post mentioned nothing about "days"... just 3 columns. For
needs when asking your question... as you can see, you will more than likely
not get an answer that you can extrapolate to meet your full requirements.
Now, so we don't have to guess, show us how your columns are laid out. Also,
is there something more that you are hinting at when you say "I only have
availability for 4 of my employees in a single day"? Are there more
employees that need to be accounted for, but in some different way?

```I apology, I did not know more problems arrive as  more needs come to mind
for the sheets I need.  However, here it is.

In the availability sheet it look like this:

Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday
Tom 6:00 AM 2:00 PM 6:00 AM 2:00 PM 6:00 AM 2:00 PM 6:00 AM 2:00 PM
1:00 PM 9:00 PM 1:00 PM 9:00 PM 1:00 PM 9:00 PM
Jason 9:00 AM 5:00 PM 9:00 AM 5:00 PM 9:00 AM 5:00 PM 9:00 AM 5:00 PM
9:00 AM 5:00 PM 1:00 PM 9:00 PM 1:00 PM 9:00 PM
John  1:00 PM 9:00 PM 1:00 PM 9:00 PM 1:00 PM 9:00 PM 1:00 PM 9:00 PM
1:00 PM 9:00 PM 6:00 AM 2:00 PM 6:00 AM 2:00 PM
Dave  8:00 AM 4:00 PM 8:00 AM 4:00 PM 8:00 AM 4:00 PM 8:00 AM 4:00 PM
12:00 PM 8:00 PM 12:00 PM 8:00 PM 12:00 PM 8:00 PM

In the schedule sheet it look like this:

Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday
Jason 9:00 AM 5:00 PM 9:00 AM 5:00 PM 9:00 AM 5:00 PM 9:00 AM 5:00 PM
1:00 PM 9:00 PM 1:00 PM 9:00 PM 1:00 PM 9:00 PM
Tom 10:00 AM 10:00 PM 10:00 AM 10:00 PM 10:00 AM 10:00 PM 10:00 AM
10:00 PM 10:00 AM 10:00 PM 2:00 PM 8:00 PM 2:00 PM 8:00 PM
Dave  8:00 AM 3:00 PM 8:00 AM 3:00 PM 8:00 AM 3:00 PM 8:00 AM 3:00 PM
8:00 AM 3:00 PM 12:00 PM 6:00 PM 12:00 PM 6:00 PM
John  12:00 PM 6:00 PM 12:00 PM 6:00 PM 12:00 PM 6:00 PM 12:00 PM 6:00
PM 12:00 PM 6:00 PM 1:00 PM 7:00 PM 1:00 PM 7:00 PM

In the time conflict sheet it should look like this.  I only got the first
column of this sheet for demostration purposes, which is monday.
Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday  Sunday
Jason N\A after  2:00 PM   9:00 AM 5:00 PM  9:00 AM 5:00 PM  9:00 AM
5:00 PM  1:00 PM 9:00 PM  1:00 PM 9:00 PM  1:00 PM 9:00 PM
Tom Only Available from 9:00 AM to 5:00:00 PM  10:00 AM 10:00 PM
10:00 AM 10:00 PM  10:00 AM 10:00 PM  10:00 AM 10:00 PM  2:00 PM 8:00 PM
2:00 PM 8:00 PM
Dave   8:00 AM 3:00 PM  8:00 AM 3:00 PM  8:00 AM 3:00 PM  8:00 AM 3:00
PM  8:00 AM 3:00 PM  12:00 PM 6:00 PM  12:00 PM 6:00 PM
John  N\A before  1:00 PM   12:00 PM 6:00 PM  12:00 PM 6:00 PM  12:00
PM 6:00 PM  12:00 PM 6:00 PM  1:00 PM 7:00 PM  1:00 PM 7:00 PM

Any helps is greatly appreciated.  I have a hard time understand the
formulas.  I got my head spinning just by look at the length of it.

```Okay, I see another change from your original post (which, I think, will
also affect how I restructure my original formulas). In your original post,
you said you only had two sheets (named Availability and Schedule), but now
I see a third sheet listed (named Conflicts). It looks like what you
originally asked to go in columns D, E and F right next to each time span
now goes into this previously unmentioned worksheet. If that is so, you will
need to clarify it layout a little more for us. It looks like you have a
mixture of warning messages and valid scheduled time spans across the days
of the week. If that is correct, how are you handling the 3rd column (F from
the D, E, F columns reserved for the warning messages) as it relates to the
valid time spans? Does each day on the Conflicts sheet span 3 columns
whereas on the other 2 days they span on 2 columns? The more detail you can
give us on this part of the layout, the better (note that the information
you last posted is not spaced very well and it hard to read for its actual
layout.

```Yes, there is a new sheet named "Conflict", and the formulas you wrote for
me early is moved to these sheet, but I can't them to work because of the
changes in locations.  Yes, Each day of the week for the Conflict sheet has
three column.  One display a warning messsage such as N\A before, N\A after,
or Only Available from.  The column next to it will display the time before
or after depend on the the warning column, and the last column will play "To
and the time" if the warning column has a warning message such as "only
available from".  Yes, the Availability sheet, and the schedule sheet only
has 2 column under each day.  One for the time start.  One for the time end.
They also span for 7 days instead of 1 day as was in the orginal post.
Please, let me know if you need further clarification.  Thanks so much.

Excel Formula depending on number in cell..
Hello everyone! I have a question that I thought some of you could answer: I have a number in column D and based on if it is \$0-\$100 I want i multiplied by 0.10 and then rounded up to .95. So, if it is 20.49 + 10% = \$22.54 and then rounded up to \$22.95 Now this is where it gets tricky.. If it is between 100.01 to 200.00 + 7% and then rounded up to a .95. So for example 129.44 + 7% = \$9.08 = \$138.50 then rounded up to .95 \$138.95. I need to do this for a range of numbers like 200.00 to 300.00 an 300.00 to 500.00 etc, etc..

Mike To show 350 as the answer, type the following, followed by enter =100+250 If you will be doing a lot of this, you might consider entering 100 in cell A1, 250 in cell A2 and =SUM(A1:A3) in cell A4 (leaving cell A3 for an additional value).

VLOOKUP and IF statements
Hi there, Once again, I would like to tap the infinite knowledge of Excel out there. I am using a VLOOKUP function to bring in dates from another worksheet. I want my dates to end up in the 8/04/04 format. The trouble is that because I am using VLOOKUP with a sheet with incomplete data, some values are zero, and others are #N/A. For example, I am trying to pull in the dates that a particular product has sold. If a product had not sold, its 'date' field would be blank, and VLOOKUP returns a zero value. If it's not in the table at all, VLOOKUP returns a #N/A value. To combat...

Peter, If the cell is formatted for Percentage then enter =5/10 (equals fiv divide by 10) to produce 50% in the cell and =5/10 in the formula bar. The formula you are using suggests the cell is formatted to Number, bu if you enter =5/...

Hello guys, is that true that excel-pivot is only able to sum (meanvalue is no selectable) from a formula made table. usually you put by drag and dro the data field into your table. but you also can put by hand a formula which is quit useful sometimes. after lunching the data-field in your pivot you can say pleasy show me the minimum or the meanvalue. It looks like that is not possible when you create a data-field using formula. then excel is just able to sum that ****... do you have any other idea?? cheers, filipu -- filipu ------------------------------------------------------------...

Changing a Parameter Of A Formula
Hi, I would be grateful if someone could help me with the problem have got. I have written a macro, with my user defined functions. One of my user defined functions is called GetData and it has two parameters Reference and Last_Value, eg GetData(Reference, Last_Value). I call GetData by assigning this to a cell like so (which works fine): Cell.Formula = GetData(Reference, Last_Value) Now within the GetData function I use the Reference Parameter to get a New Value, which will be returned to the cell (which works fine too). But what I wanted to know is how can I change the Last_Value ...

counta formula
I want to divide a number by counta for certain cells (which would yield a number). For example, =10/counta(A1:A4) would equal 10/4 if cells A1 to A4 are filled. What I am stuck on is this: =10/counta(A1:A4 but exclude the cells from this range that equal any of the numbers in in the range B5:B8) Example: =10/counta(A1:A4) would be 10/4 but since A2 = B7, the formula gives me 10/3 because A2 is excluded from counta What should happen if all the numbers match? Try something like this: =10/SUMPRODUCT(--(ISNA(MATCH(A1:A4,B5:B8,0))),A1:A4) -- Biff Microsoft Exce...

convert text to formula using VLookup
My question; I've seen somewhere that you can convert a text string into a formula using the INDIRECT Function. What I am constructing is a maintenance Schedule where some items need to be serviced on a weekly basis, others monthly, quarterly, bi-annually, and yearly. (Those are the only five rotations I require at the moment.) Once constructed the format will take on the appearance of a calendar with conditional formatting to highlight the dates the service falls on. Each of the rotations require (I think) different formulas, so what I want to do is have a list of the f...

Help with Formula Scenarios from yesterday
Repost with responses Hi AlfD Well, here's the problem, all of the cells which are being averaged contain formulas which until other cells are filled weekly, will contain zeros. So, I wrote those to ignore the zeros. I've instructed the person who will be populating the weekly, currently empty cells to use "n/a" or "---" to show that the cell has been addressed but will not contain a value, so I'm in a quandry. I think it's best to ignore the zeros, but what's making my averages come up wrong. So, I think leave that condition alone. What I need, ...

Formula which includes new sheets too?
Hi all, I don't know if this is possible, but any suggestions would be much appreciated! I have a spreadsheet with a few sheets, 1 for each site and then a Summary sheet which displays totals. eg. Site 1 shows how much has been fee'd for that site in each month, and the Summary Sheet shows how much has been fee'd for all sites in that month, by using a formula which takes the value's from each sheet. Is there a way of editing the formula so it will automatically include cell H3 for any sheet, including any new sheets added, without me having to amend the formulas? T...

Reference a cell value in a formula
I have the following formula: =SUMPRODUCT((MONTH(Summary!\$F\$7:\$F\$15000)=1)*1) I want the "15000" to be replaced by the varaible value of a cell in an other worksheet ("Summary"). I tried using INDIRECT but it didn't work. Thanks in advance =SUMPRODUCT((MONTH(OFFSET(Summary!\$E\$7,0,0,C4,1))=1)*1) C4 in this case is the cell that holds the number of items to be used in the calculation -- If the post is helpful, please consider donating something to an animal charity on my behalf ..... and click Yes "Leon" wrote: > I have the f...
