## How to Use Multiple Excel Formulas in One Cell: Step-by-Step Procedures

In this article, you will learn how to use multiple Excel formulas in one cell by utilizing the Ampersand operator. Here. We will apply two separate Excel formulas in one cell, such as the SUM function and the AVERAGE function. Letâ€™s suppose we have a sample data set.

### Step 1: Creating Data Set

In this step, the SUM function and the AVERAGE function are applied in two different cells to show the difference between multiple Excel formulas used in one cell and multiple formulas in different cells.

• Here, we want to determine the total sales for all the salespeople and their average sales value.
• Then, we apply the SUM and AVERAGE functions to determine the total sales and average sales value in two different cells, respectively.

• Finally, you will observe the final results of the total sales and the average sales.

### Step 2: Inserting First Formula

• Firstly, apply the first formula in the following manner.
• So, write down the following formula.
`="Total Sales = "& SUM(C5:C12)`
• After that, hit ENTER.

• As a result, you will see the results for the first formula in the image below.

### Step 3: Utilizing Ampersand Operator

If we want to combine or apply the separate Excel formulas in one cell, That is why we use the Ampersand operator to put multiple formulas in one cell.

• Here in this step, we use the Ampersand operator at the last position of the first SUM formula to add another formula in the same cell.

### Step 4: Inserting Second Formula

In this step, we will demonstrate to you how to combine the second formula with the first formula in one cell by utilizing the Ampersand formula.

• So, complete the following two formulas in this section to use Excel formulas in one cell by utilizing the Ampersand operator.
• Then, write down the following formula in the following manner.
`="Total Sales = "&SUM(C5:C12)&", "&"Average Sales = "&AVERAGE(C5:C12)`
• After that, press ENTER.

1. Hey, I managed to complete this after quite a few rudimentary google search results left me thinking it weren’t possible to have more than one function in a single cell, so much thanks to you.
I now managed to show in a single cell the current date minus a given buying date in a different cell shown in amount of days passed (check), as well as shown in years.
However the year is now shown as 0,063013698630137 for 23 days and I want a maximum of 2 decimals -> 0,06 Years.
Sadly, I can’t find a way to do this, the normal Decrease Decimal Format command simply has no effect on my new single cell and an error sound is played.
If anyone knows how to get it fixed (for example is there a limit function to go directly into the formula to limit it to 2 decimals?) would be awesome, thanks for your help.

2. I left a reply seeking help with this excel article a few minutes ago,
however ChatGPT has helped me out showing me the final working formula to enter for my problem, which is
=(TODAY())-E2&” | “&ROUND(((TODAY())-E2)/365;2)
so I no longer require any help, thanks for showing me that it’s possible with & to enter multiple formulas into a single cell, after initial google search results seemed to imply that this is not possible.
