Hello, I understand that if a cell is filled, you want it multiplied by 1.2, right?

User
08/02/2018 - 02:37

It's an example.

Excelchat Expert
08/02/2018 - 02:37

Okay, can you provide a sample data set using the document preview please?

Excelchat Expert
08/02/2018 - 02:37

Okay.

Excelchat Expert

Please provide a sample data set using the document preview. This is necessary because depending on your sample data, your request may only be partially be answered.

For instance, a shaded cell cannot be detected by Excel using formulas.

Excelchat Expert
08/02/2018 - 02:39

A checked cell can be but it depends on the kind of checked used.

User
08/02/2018 - 02:40

What I want to know is can I can check Well above target in any row and have it autofill a formula in C15?

User
08/02/2018 - 02:40

Does that make sense?

Excelchat Expert
08/02/2018 - 02:41

I'll need more information.

Excelchat Expert
08/02/2018 - 02:41

First, where will it check if a cell is above target?

Excelchat Expert
08/02/2018 - 02:41

Second, what is the formula in C15?

Excelchat Expert
08/02/2018 - 02:42

If you can provide actual numbers in your sample this would go a lot smoother.

User
08/02/2018 - 02:42

Sounds good

User
08/02/2018 - 02:43

So now for the formula

User
08/02/2018 - 02:44

I would want it to auto fill so target would be x1, AT x1.2, WAT x1.4

User
08/02/2018 - 02:44

So the result would read 18% x whichever cells are filled. Does that help?

Excelchat Expert
08/02/2018 - 02:45

Okay, so 18 is the expected output?

Excelchat Expert
08/02/2018 - 02:45

May I know how 18% was calculated?

Excelchat Expert
08/02/2018 - 02:45

Once I understand the logic of how you came up with 18% from the sample you wrote then I'll be able to write a formula for you.

User
08/02/2018 - 02:46

No, the formula would read 18% x 1 x 1.2 x 1.4

User
08/02/2018 - 02:46

The 18% is an internal number we have evaluation.

Excelchat Expert
08/02/2018 - 02:46

Okay, so 18% is a given.

User
08/02/2018 - 02:46

Yes.

Excelchat Expert
08/02/2018 - 02:46

Now, where did 1 come from?

User
08/02/2018 - 02:46

1 came from the x in target

Excelchat Expert
08/02/2018 - 02:46

Which X?

User
08/02/2018 - 02:46

On the sheet.

Excelchat Expert
08/02/2018 - 02:46

I see several Xs

User
08/02/2018 - 02:46

So for this result the end formula would be:

Excelchat Expert
08/02/2018 - 02:47

How do you know that one of these X is equal to 1?

User
08/02/2018 - 02:47

18% x 1 x 1.2 x 1.2 x 1.2 x 1.4 x 1.4

User
08/02/2018 - 02:47

T = 1, AT = 1.2, WAT = 1.4

Excelchat Expert
08/02/2018 - 02:47

Okay, so Target = 1?

User
08/02/2018 - 02:47

Yes.

Excelchat Expert
08/02/2018 - 02:47

There, that's the information I needed.

Excelchat Expert
08/02/2018 - 02:47

Can you press Enter in the document preview please to complete it?

Excelchat Expert
08/02/2018 - 02:47

You are still editing one cell.

Excelchat Expert
08/02/2018 - 02:49

So do you need the result of 0.6096384

Excelchat Expert
08/02/2018 - 02:49

0.6096384 is the result of 18% x 1 x 1.2 x 1.2 x 1.2 x 1.4 x 1.4

Excelchat Expert
08/02/2018 - 02:49

Do you need to see 0.6096384 in C15?

Excelchat Expert
08/02/2018 - 02:51

Are you still with me?

Excelchat Expert
08/02/2018 - 02:55

If you are still there, I've provided the solution to your question in C15.

Excelchat Expert
08/02/2018 - 02:55

This solution is based on the information I've gathered from you.

Excelchat Expert
08/02/2018 - 02:56

I could use some more information for you to create a better formula but since you are no longer replying, I'm unable to do that.

Excelchat Expert
08/02/2018 - 02:56

Hi, I have not received a reply from you for quite some time. I'm afraid the session will end automatically soon. I sincerely hope we were able to address your concern.

Excelchat Expert
08/02/2018 - 02:58

Here's the formula for your reference:

Excelchat Expert
08/02/2018 - 02:58

=rept("1 x",countifs(D5:D10,"x")) & rept("1.2 x",countifs(E5:E10,"x")) & rept("1.4 x",countifs(F5:F10,"x"))

Excelchat Expert

I'll be ending the session now.
