2. Hello,
Thanks for your comment.
The formulas are all right. They are working very nicely in our case. You have to insert the formulas carefully in the conditional formatting. Make sure you have put the cell references either absolute or relative correctly. Or if you can provide more information about your dataset then we could help.

3. Hello TOM,
Thanks for your comment.

Suppose, you have the following dataset with data in a single column in cells B5:B8. You want to add single quotes and separate them with a comma in cell B11. So, use the following formula with the CONCATENATE function in cell B11:

=CONCATENATE(“‘”,B5,”‘”,”, “,”‘”,B6,”‘”,”, “,”‘”,B7,”‘”,”, “,”‘”,B8,”‘”)

Press Enter to get the desired output.

4. Hello DRIN,
Thanks for your comment.

If you want to sum Notebook from India up to France and use drop-down for the countries, then use the following formula in cell C13:

=SUM(INDEX(\$B\$5:\$G\$8,MATCH(C10,\$B\$5:\$B\$8,0),MATCH(C11,\$C\$4:\$G\$4,0)+1):INDEX(\$B\$5:\$G\$8,MATCH(C10,\$B\$5:\$B\$8,0),MATCH(C12,\$C\$4:\$G\$4,0)+1))

Itâ€™ll give the desired result.

Change the countries to China and Germany from the drop-down and the total value will be updated.

5. Hello ALEXANDER,
Thanks for your comment.

First, calculate the amortization schedule for the original loan. Then, calculate the amortization schedule for the additional loan separately. Now that you have the monthly payments for both loans, you can combine them to create a single amortization schedule. You’ll need to add the monthly payments together for each month and subtract this total from the outstanding balance.

Repeat this process for each month until both loans are fully paid off. The combined amortization schedule will show the monthly payments and remaining balances as you pay off both loans simultaneously.

Thanks for your comment.
If a customer has more than one invoice with different dates, you have to include multiple rows for that customer in the dataset. Each row will represent a separate invoice entry.
The information related to that customer, such as their name, will be repeated in each row for their respective invoices. But the dates, invoice ids and invoice amounts will be different. The rest of the process is similar with this article.

7. Hello Hermione,
Thanks for your comment.
The “Run-time error ‘9’: Subscript out of range” error typically occurs when VBA code tries to reference a worksheet or object that doesn’t exist in the current workbook. In your case, the error is likely occurring because there is no worksheet named “all books” in your Excel workbook.

To fix this issue, you need to ensure that the worksheet name you’re trying to reference (“all books”) exactly matches the name of a worksheet in your workbook. If the worksheet name is different or contains typos or extra spaces, you will encounter this error.

8. Hlw Terrisa,
Thank you very much for your comment. The right formula for your need is given below-

=IFERROR(MIN((DATEDIF(W6,TODAY(),”d”)+1)/(DATEDIF(W6,X6,”d”)+1), 1), 0)

Here, we add the MIN function to cap the calculated percentage to 100%. If the calculated percentage is greater than 100%, this function will return 100%, capping the percentage. If the calculated percentage is less than or equal to 100%, it will return the calculated percentage as it is.

9. Thank you very much for your valuable comment. You are right. The ASCII character 160 is different than character 32. If you have any cell containing the ASCII character 160 non-breaking space then the TRIM function described in method 1 wonâ€™t work.
However, you can use the combination of the SUBSTITUTE and CHAR functions then. Suppose you have a value in cell A1 of your dataset containing the ASCII character 160 non-breaking space. Then you can use the following formula to remove unwanted spaces-

=SUBSTITUTE(A1,CHAR(160), “”)

After using this formula you can apply the Remove Duplicates button.
