Formula that checks balances

```I have a long list of formulas in column "E".

I need to know at a glance whether any value in this column is inequal to
zero without having to page down all the way through thousands of rows.

Summing the column is no good because there could be offsetting values (e.g.
+5 + -5 = 0).

I would like a formula I could place in one cell that would indicate if
every formula in the column evaluates to zero or not (rounded to 2 decimals).
Can anyone help?

Thanks!
```

First, it would be a good practice if you ensured that each formula rounded
to 2 decimal places, either by explicitly using the ROUND function
(preferred) or by using the "Precision As Displayed" calculation option in
conjunction with a number format other than General.

If you do that, then the following might meet your needs:

=COUNTIF(E1:E100,"<>0")

Otherwise, try:

=SUMPRODUCT(--(ROUND(E1:E100,2)<>0))

Note that these formulas return a count of non-zero values, not simply "if
every cell is zero".  I think the count is more useful.

FYI, I usually do this inconjunction with a parallel column (e.g. F1:F100)
of the form:

=IF(ROUND(E1,2)=0,"","ERROR")

Then the first formula can be simply:  =COUNTIF(F1:F100,"ERROR")

```hi
use a countif formula
=countif(E2:E10,0)
the above would tell you if you have any formulas that equate to zero.
to find where that is use the following....
the above will only show the first instance of a zero value. in case you
have more than one.

One another
=3DSUM(E1:E100*E1:E100)
Just press Ctrl+Shift+Enter in place of Enter as this is an array
formula.
If any non zero value is there then the formula result will be >0

Or if you do not use formula one other way.

Select the E1:E100---->If E1 is "0" then press Ctrl+Shift+\        ----
This will select all cells not "0"
In case the E1 is not zero you can make it 0 for time being.

Excel Formula for determining azimuth relative to true north between two sets of geographic coordinates?

Formula to calculate interest only on a short term loan?
I am not familiar with Excel 2007 and need to calculate a bridge loan MONTHLY INTEREST ONLY scenario, with a fixed %rate, for a range of 1 -6 months. Not sure if if interest accrues daily or monthly. Assuming you have an annual interest rate, a month's interest is: =Principal*IntRate/12 This may be good enough for your purposes.

Excel displays formulae, not results
I have inherited a spread sheet that has a number of formulae in it. However when I type in a new formula, it displays it as the formula, not as the result. This is not applicable to all cells, just some of them. I am now reduced to copying a formula that displays the result, then editing it to give the formula that I actually want. Obviously there is some setting in the individual cells that governs how it displays as well as the general setting.

"Move and size with cell" option is not active in object positioning for check boxes created via FORMS as opposed to those created via CONTROL TOOLBOX.

Using Office2000 Sp3 I use Excel a lot for historical things including eg; areas of land expressed in ACRES ROODS PERCHES which is not added in tens (similar to �/s/d). 40 perches = 1 Rood, 4 Roods = 1 Acre, 160 perches=1 acre. I have a formula which when applied to entries across 3 columns gives a decimal answer. The formula is =SUM(((D1*160))+(E1*40)+F1)/160 assuming acres are in D1, Roods E1, perches F1. Once this is decimalised I can work out ratios etc. However, I occasionally get tabbed text files or excel files from people who have entered lots of raw data as eg ARP where it would be ...

formula to project revenue
Hello, is there a formula I can use that will project revenue in real time based on total sales at any given time. Basically, take my sales to date, consider how many days into a calendar year we are at presently and make a prediction to where the sales will be at the end of the calendar year based on sales to date. So, say I am 50 days into the calendar year and my sales are 500,000. Presently, I am averaging 10,000 per day and at this rate my sales for the year will be 3,650,000.
