Get page from URL

To get a page from URL while working on excel spreadsheet, a formula can be used that comprises on many excel functions like SUBSTITUTE, RIGHT, REPT, and TRIM.

Formula

The formula to get a page from URL in excel worksheet is given below

=TRIM(RIGHT(SUBSTITUTE(url,"/",REPT(" ",100)),100))

Explanation

Firstly, the above-mentioned formula substitute forward slashes by 100 spaces. From Right, it removes 100 characters thereby cleaning this utilizing TRIM function. The substitution is achieved by SUBSTITUTE and REPT like this:

=SUBSTITUTE(B5,”/”,REPT(” “,100))

At that point, RIGHT function removes last 100 letters of the sequence that is provided by SUBSTITUTE. At last, TRIM evacuates all driving and trailing characters and provides the result.

Example

In this example, we have inserted two website links in the input list i.e. B5 and B6. The formula is entered in the C5 of the output list as shown in the figure.

I am having issues creating the one way data table to show the means and standard deviations when you change the proportion of portfolio 1. I have the mean formula and the standard deviation formula at the top and -1 through 1 down the left side. I highlight all of it and create a data table. I reference the "proportion of portfolio 1" cell in the column input box but when the data table comes out it has all the same numbers all they way down the table.

Solved by I. D. in 10 mins
What formula do I use to create a running balance across several worksheets as the numbers continue to change? For example. I have created a drop down list for every month of the year from Jan - Dec for people to sign up for sessions. As they sign up for sessions, I want to create a list beside their names to show how many sessions they have signed up for. So if they sign up for 6 the summary should automatically display 6, if they sign up for 1 more it would instantly show 7 and so on for each person? Make sense
