Formulas
1. IF and Nested IF statements
Provide branching in calculations. 25 Elephant

The number is 25! The number is 25 and the animal is Elephant.

2. Join first and last names
Join a list of first names in one column with a list of last names in another column using a formula. First John Kaspar Emma Last Smith Johnson Bovary Formula 1 John Smith Kaspar Johnson Emma Bovary Formula 2 Smith, John Johnson, Kaspar Bovary, Emma

3. Join a date with text
To concatenate two values (as above) use the concatenation (&) operator. To connect a date or time value stored in a cell with a text string, use the TEXT function. Date: Text: Wrong: Right: 9/12/2000 Date: Date: 36781 Date: 09-12-00

(uses concatenation only) (uses concatenation plus the TEXT function)

4. Create a total based on a condition
Use the SUMIF function to create a total value for a range based on a value in another range. For example, for every cell in the range below that contains the value "NorthWind", the example formula calculates the total for the corresponding cells in the range next to it. EastWind NorthWind SouthWind NorthWind WestWind Northwind Formula: 50 100 75 100 35 100 300 The formula contents: =SUMIF(B30:B35,"Northwind",C30:C35)

5. Create a total based on multiple conditions
Same as above, but more than one condition.

Uses an array formula which must be entered using CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER . EastWind Regular NorthWind Premium SouthWind Regular NorthWind Regular WestWind OK Northwind Premium Formula: 50 100 75 100 35 100 200

6. Count the occurrences of a condition
The COUNTIF function counts the occurrences of a value in a range of cells. In this example, it counts the number of cells in the range below that contain the text value "NorthWind". EastWind NorthWind SouthWind NorthWind WestWind Northwind Formula: 3 The formula contents: =COUNTIF(C59:C64,"NorthWind")

7. Count the occurrences of multiple conditions
Same as above, but checks for a second condition. The first condition is whether "NorthWind" is present; the second is whether "Premium" is also present. Then the number of rows that contain both is returned. Again, uses an array formula (CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER). EastWind Regular NorthWind Premium SouthWind Regular NorthWind Regular WestWind OK Northwind Premium Formula: 2 The formula contents =SUM(IF(B74:B79="NorthWind",IF(C74:C79="Premium",1,0)))

"NorthWind"
