Hi,

Please see attached example workbook.
The numbers in column A and B are entered by you.
The other entries (Columns C to G) are calculated as per your question.

You can copy down to do more operations as required.

Does that solve your query?

Thanks,

Alan.

What values were in G2 and N2?  If they aren't numbers that will be a problem (letters, of #VALUE, or spaces (not empty))...

numbers only i think but they have comma in numbers like 2,00,000 etc.
does that make them string not numbers?

G2 is ---->
4,34,125.00

N2 is--->

Commented:
What country are you in, is "4,34,125.00" a valid representation of a number there?

You need to determine if these are numbers with formatting applied, or text values.  Click on one of the cells, and in the formula bar see if just all digits shows, or if you see the commas as well?

which one is formulae bar and where can i find it.

can you please put some screenshots

Commented:
This is the formula bar (see red arrow).  When you click on a cell, it will show near the top of the sheet, and either show the value from the cell, or the formula if it's a calculated cell.  Notice in this case the actual cell in the spreadsheet has commands and currency symbol, but in the formula bar it does not.  This tells us that there is a real number in the cell and the comma and \$ are just put there with display formatting.

Hi gudii9,

If you have data coming from a source with weird formatting, you could use the attached approach.

This assumes that any commas in the numbers can be ignored.

Is that a solution for you?

Thanks,

Alan.

I don't think I saw the answer to this, or better still a screen capture.

Hi gudii9,

Even if you are copy and pasting from a webpage, and that brings in \$ symbols and / or commas, the file that I posted above should handle that.

Is it not working for you?

If not, please give us a specific example, or upload that workbook with your sample data that is not working.

Thanks,

Alan.
