Testing a range of cells in an IF FUNCTION
Trying to test a range of cells in an IF Function. I would like the function to look at 15 cells in a single row, find a value within those cells, and then return another value if TRUE/FALSE. As of now, I can only apply the "logical test" in the IF formula for ONE CELL ONLY. I would like it to test a RANGE of cells in one row, find if any of the values match my logical test, and then return a value. Anyone understand or know how to do this? I tried apply "lookup" function, but I don't think it will work

I am attempting to create a macro that will save a workbook with the
file name under which I save the workbook coming from the contents of
one of the cells in the workbook. Suppose that each time the workbook
was altered, a specific cell (A1 on Sheet1 for instance) contained the
desired file name for that workbook. It is my goal to create a macro
that automatically assigns said workbook a name based on the content of
that cell. Any help would be most appreciated.

Hi everyone !
Working on an excel file full of references, it would be very useful
to be able to make the display to jump directly to the cells
referenced by the active cells I currently see.
So if my cell TU789 reference the cell JI890, I don't want to search
for JI 890, but would like excel to automatically show me this cell.
Do you know if it is possible ?
Is there a shortcut for that ?
It would be difficult to do that generically, as the cell could
contain a formula that references several other cells - which one
should be chosen in this case?
You might think about using ...Re: Function to copy data from a variable range?
I have a sheet with about 20,000 lines of data.
From that sheet I am looking to group the data based on a parameter,
into multiple different sheets. ie: If the category is "1" copy all
that lines data into sheet A, If the category is "2", copy all the
lines into sheet B.
The problem is, the number of lines for each acatgeory type is not
always the same. Some categories may only have 1 or two lines, other
may have 200-300.
Is there any type of function for this?
Doable but why not just use data>filter>autofilter

Hi guys. First time poster here so be gentle with me. I am looking fo

Here is what I have so far.

Grateful for any assistance.
if the Plus sign + is part of a text string Select the column range first then
=FIND("+",A2:$A$160) change the range to your needs.
If the + sign is alone in the cell, you don't need a formula, just select > Cell
