Using Countif Formula In A Pivot Table 
Using Countif Formula In A Pivot Table  Excel 

Hi,
Im working with a large data spreadsheet that has Yes and No answers in different columns. There are blanks within the selection too.
I need to calculate only the Yes.
I have tried using the filters in the Pivot Table field list and they are not working.
So now i'm trying to add a COUNTIF formula in the Calculated Fields section.
The formula I'm using is =Countif('Time limit extension'="yes") and i get the answer "too few."
What should I be using in the formula to get the calculated field to work? I have search the whole forum and I haven't found an answer that can help me.
Please HELP!!!

Hi everyone,
I found an excellent macro this morning that allows the user to filter a pivot table based on the value found in a specific cell. This cell essentially acts as a search bar, allowing the user to type in what they are looking for rather than select it from a dropdown list.
The macro works perfectly for my purposes except in one regard: I can no longer perform a "show all" filter. If I leave the "search bar" cell blank, the pivot table shows nothing. I'm sure that there is an easy fix for this but I'm still learning the basics of how to write and use macros. How can I change the code so that when I leave the cell blank, the pivot table shows all? The search bar cell is D2.
Thanks for your time!

Hello Everybody,
I am hoping for some assistance. Here is what I have....
I am trying to get counts of certain values.
This is in the same workbook but different sheets.
On sheet 1 is where my formula lies. In a cell, I want it to look at sheet 2 column B and look for instances of "A", then I want it to look in the same row it found "A" and look at the value in column "N" and evaluate if there is an amount. If there isn't skip it and don't count it, if there is a value count it if it falls within a given range.
An example of the formula is below...what am I missing?
=COUNTIF(Sheet2!B:B,(VLOOKUP(A,Sheet2!B:N,13,FALSE)=0:500))
=COUNTIF(Sheet2!B:B,(VLOOKUP(A,Sheet2!B:N,13,FALSE)=501:1000))
Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Good afternoon!
I'm working with Excel 2003 sp 3 on Windows xp.
I have been banging my head trying to jar loose the formula to calculate man days where 1 equals 8 hours. I have one that was given to me by a coworker:
=INT(Q3/8)+(((Q3/8)(INT(Q3/8)))*0.8)
That calculates man days from total hours. I need a formula that will total man days and return the man day answer. Example:
weekending 12/25 = 16.2 which is 16 man days and 2 hours
weekending 1/1 = 24.7 which is 24 man days and 7 hours
Total = 41 man days and 1 hour
I have also been asked if there was a way for a number to be entered into a spreadsheet and automatically put in order without a macro or "pushing a button".
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
Happy New Year!

is it possible to put two formulasinto one cell?
On the attached timesheet there are columns IN, OUT, IN,OUT
The lunch time is worked out by deducting 'C8 from C9' and this works fine when all 'IN, OUT' cells are filled in but for some reason when just the first two cells are filled in it gives a 12 hour answer.
looking at cell 'C11 ' in the attached worksheet, I currently have the formula
=IF(C13=0,","SUM(C9C8)) The reason for this is to make it look tidy by having blank cells until a calculation is needed,, My problem is, If someone just comes in for the morning one day for instance 8am to 12 noon then they won't have lunch, but C11 will show 12:00
Can I put another formula into C11 to tell it not to deduct C8 from C9 until a time is put into C9.
The following is the sort of thing (many variations) I have been trying but because I'm hopeless at formulas I'm not having any success
Thanks
=IF(C13=0,","SUM(C9C8))OR,IF(C9,ISBLANK,"",SUM(C9C8)

I have two columns in my spreadsheet. Column A has no blank fields, Column B has some blank fields. I would like to show the text from Column A in the same row of Column B only when Column B is blank.
So, basically I'm after: If column B has text, do nothing. If column B is blank, then list text from Column A.
Right now I've created Column C with this formula =IF(ISBLANK(B1), A1. That's working to get the text from A1 when B1 is blank. What can I do/add to get it pull the text from B1 if there is text there? Or...is there a better approach altogether?

I have a coworker's file that he is having trouble with. He is using Excel 2000 SP3. When copying a cell with a formula in it of "=D6+C6" and pasting it into the next cell down, it will display the same value in the cell as the calculated value from above, but has the correct formula displayed in the formula bar of "=D7+C7".
Example:
A1: 50
A2: 10
B1: 60
B2: 20
A3: Formula: =A1+A2 Displays: 60
Right click A3, Copy, right click B3, paste
A3 displays 60
When I click save, it will change the display value to 80.
I am trying this on his workstation and mine. Mine has Office 2010, so I think there might be an issue with the file itself.
Also, not just copy and paste. I can also just click the top cell after filling in the formula and then drag the bottom right of the cell downward and it will do the same of filling in the correct formula, but have the incorrect value.
I know that I could get him to just click save each time before really looking at the results, but that is just a band aid to the problem.
Any ideas how to fix this?

Also, I cannot move the Pivot Table from the new Worksheet it is created in, to my existing Worksheet.
I am running Excel 2011 for Mac.
I have a Worksheet with a small amount of data, and when I click the Pivot Table button it automatically creates the Pivot Table in a new Worksheet. The Pivot Table data is fine, but I want it to display alongside the source data.
I've tried using the Move Pivot Table option and choosing to Create Pivot Table in Existing Worksheet and choosing a source cell alongside my current data, but nothing appears. Also, I checked in Edit menu and found that the Pivot Table appears to have not even been created/moved because there is no option to undo it.
Appreciate any help, let me know if you have any further questions.

I have a very simple pivot table that I am trying to use as a data source for a VLOOKUP request. Unfortunately, every time I do it I get the result #NA. I have tried recreating the results from the pivot table in the worksheet next to it, and am able to use VLOOKUP on them successfully, but as soon as I point the VLOOKUP array to the pivot table, I get the #NA result
Can VLOOKUP be used on pivot tables? If so, is there any special syntax I need to use?
Thanks

Hi Excel experts,
I am working on a worksheet, and would like to have an entire row transferred to another worksheet based upon a certain cell's value.
Having searched through the many solved threads on this site, I attempted to customize some of the code to my worksheet. Not being proficient in Macro/VBA, I failed. I figured I would ask for help, and see if anyone can provide what I am looking for.
Basically, I am attempting to construct a "work in process" file, and would like all completed work to be deleted from the work in process sheet, and transferred to a sheet that contains a running list of all work completed.
Attached is an example of what I am working on. I would like Column Q (Status) to determine if a row can be moved to a sheet that contains the list of all work completed, and eliminated from the original sheet. Once Status is updated to "Complete", it would be helpful to be able to run a macro/click a button that would perform the transfer.
Can anyone assist?
Thanks!

I am trying to figure out how to write a formula to figure out production cycle time.
We will be building 8 "widgets" a day.
We will work 10 hours a day.
There is a 20 minute break at 9:20 am.
Production shuts down for lunch 30 minutes for lunch at 12:30.
Production starts at 6:00 am.
Here is what I can do.
Production cycle time = (10*60)30/8 or 71.25 minutes
If we start at 6:00 am, the first scheduled cycle completion time = TIME(6,0,0+71.25/1440)
My problem is when I am trying to use a logical "IF' statement to account for the 20 minute break or lunch and still calculate the end of each cycle time through the day I receive a number of error messages.
This is the formula I am trying to make work. I have the cell the formula is in, formatted with a "mm,ss" format.
=(IF(D4+G1/1440>9:20,(D4+G1)/24,(D4+G1+15)/1440))
I have included an attachment to help (a picture is worth a thousand words).
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
I have bought a number of books in an attempt to figure this out, and I am still stumped

This is my first post in these forums.
I am trying to create a formula which will look at the data in columns A  I (50 rows) and copy this data to columns K  S but ignoring any blank cells. Thereby consolidating the data in the upper rows with no spaces.
I am sure there is a relativley simple answer but it is driving me mad!
Hope you "Guru's" can help
Thanks

I have a spreadsheet set up with an employees information, including the start date. After each year that the employee is working, he gets bumped up on the pay scale. For this reason, I only need to know how many years the employee has been working, rounded down to the nearest year.
This is what I have so far (hire date is in column B):
=((TODAY()B4)/365)&" YEARS"
This function gives me a number with many decimal places.
I tried:
=ROUNDDOWN((TODAY()B4)/365),0)&" YEARS"
It tells me I have too few arguments. Please help!

How do I calculate the number of batches per hour? Here's what I have so far:
Cell B5: start time: 4:15 formatted as 4:15:00 am
Cell B6: finish time: 6:15 formatted as 6:15:00 am
Cell B7: total time: 2:00 formula in cell: =TEXT(B6B5,"h:mm")
Cell B8: total batches processed: 22 (this is entered manually)
Cell B9: batches per hour: formula in cell: =B8/TEXT(B7,"h")
as long as I have this formula in cell B9 the answer comes out correct which should be 11 per hour.
If the formula in B9 is B8/B7, the answer is 264.0, Is this because of the way excel is reading the total time or the total time is formatted as a time, not an actual number? Is this the correct way to solve the problem?
answer should be 11 per hour.

Hi there
I am trying to calculate our On Time Delivery. I want this as a simple percentage of jobs. I have got this running in the following way:
Column M  Estimated Delivery dates
Column N  Actual Delivery dates
Column O  =IF(SUM(M2N2)>0,1,0)
Then I have calculated On Time Delivery as: =SUM((SUM(O2:O252))/(COUNTA(N2:N252)))
This seems to work fine. My problem is, if we enter a date in Estimated without a corresponding Actual date, the formula for Column O fills out anyway and improves our On Time Delivery Percentage. How can I set this up so that the formula doesn't calculate if there is no data in Column N?
Any help much appreciated
Thanks,
James

I'm trying to come up with a solution to calculate the man hours and days worked over multiple sheets.
I have a file that has 8 sheets. the first seven sheets are the days of the week and the 8th sheet is where I want to calculate the hours.
The days of the week consists of "Name" "Date" Hours"
The 8th sheet consists of "Name", "Days of the week in their own column (7 columns in total)", "Total Hours" and "Total Days Worked"
Now... each day is always a different group and what I'm hoping for is to create a formula that can grab each name with their hours and throw them into the 8th sheet. So when the end of the week is done I have all the Employees weekly hours and days worked all finished.
I hope this makes sense. This file is to track about 100 employees that are on a rotational work schedule.
I have attached a sample file.
Thanks in advance for your help.

I have a spreadsheet that when I copy the formula, it copies correctly
(changes the cells it should subtract), however, the result stays the same.
It matches the formula I copied it from, even though the cells to calculate
are now different. I even did a paste special and said only formula, but
still, same result. If I actually type in the formula, it works fine, but I
have a lot I need to copy and paste. Is there a way I can fix this?

In my pivot table I have a lot of cells without any data. The report looks like garbage with all the (BLANK) sohowing up in the report.
I've tried condtional formatting where if the cells = (BLANK) it woulf format them as white did not work
I tried the pivot table options and clicking on the box "for empty cells show" and set it to 0 then empty but that did not work.
any Ideas???

I have a sheet with raw data a sheet with pivot tables a sheet with a dashboard and a simple macro
I don't have any #REF cells either.
Someone has any idea of what could be the problem?

Sorry for the question. Normally I find answers to my excel questions by going through the help tab or by searching on Google. However, I don't even know what question to ask on this one!?!
Basically I have created a spreadsheet with several columns, but I have one column that lists the shirt size (YS, YM, YL, AS, AM, AL, XL, 2X, 3X) of each person. Is there a formula that I can create that will tabulate the number of sizes (i.e. AS=2, AM=7, etc.)?
In previous years I made a column for each size, and simply placed a "1" in the correct column, and had excel just add the 1's from each column. However, that takes more time and space. I was hoping to streamline it this time around.
Thanks for taking the time to read this post. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks, doug
