Hi All,

I need Excel to perform a calculation but i do not know how to do it.
Here is the scenario:

I need a formula that will read column B&DIF they are the same value to then check columns C&E IF C&E are the same value, i want that value to be written to Column A.
         
   A      B         C                           D       E            
1      1/1      1501 (green)            1/1      1501 (green)
2      1/3      1501 (green)            1/3      1501 (green)
3      1/5      1501 (green)            1/5      1501 (green)
4      1/6      1501 (green)            1/6      1501 (green)
5      1/7      1501 (green)            1/7      1501 (green)
6      1/8      1504 (green)            1/8      1504 (green)
7      1/11      1504 (green)            1/11      1504 (green)
8      1/13      1501 (green)            1/13      1501 (green)

Hopes this makes sense, Thanks for your help

Use this formula in column A starting A1 and copy down:
=IF(B1=D1,IF(C1=E1,C1,""),"")

put in A1: =if(B1=D1,if(C1=E1,E1,""),"")
 this will do what you ask..
then drag this formula down to you range


Kind regards

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

You can put =IF(B1=D1,IF(C1=E1,C1,""),"") in A1 and paste it down below. See attached file. Is this what you intended? Formula-Excel.xlsx

if i wanted to extend this to include further columns ie... F compared to B and G compared to C...

Basically the overall result is that i need to add data everyday to find out the common average.... so as long as columns B/D/F etc match the results which are C/E/G need to be put into column A as the most prominent result.

So if B/D/F all matches the results from C/E/G results were 1501,1501,1502..... then 1501 would be place in column A as it was produced more times.....! if any of that makes sense

   A      B         C                           D       E                                      F               G
1      1/1      1501 (green)            1/1      1501 (green)
2      1/3      1501 (green)            1/3      1501 (green)
3      1/5      1501 (green)            1/5      1501 (green)
4      1/6      1501 (green)            1/6      1501 (green)
5      1/7      1501 (green)            1/7      1501 (green)
6      1/8      1504 (green)            1/8      1504 (green)
7      1/11      1504 (green)            1/11      1504 (green)
8      1/13      1501 (green)            1/13      1501 (green)

Hi P,

this would be easier to do with a macro..

But you would need a new question for that.

Kind regards
