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)

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

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
