Error while updating filelist not working copy
Numbers formatted as a text is one of the common reason for formulas not working in excel. For example, on the left-hand side, you can see Customer ID looks similar to numbers.
But, if you refer above formatting section, you could see that they have been formatted as text.
Second, you put extra effort and fix all the formulas.
So, to avoid all this hassle we have written this in-depth article covering most of the reasons for excel formulas not working. “The Australian researchers found that roughly 1 in 5 of these papers included errors in their gene lists that were due to Excel automatically converting gene names to things like calendar dates or random numbers.” You can download complete research materials from Source Forge website (Open Source) for further reading.
One simple way is by linking row 13 cells in row 9. You will most likely see 30, indeed that’s the correct answer… According to BODMAS rule, the calculation will take place based on a sequence i.e → B- Brackets, O- Order, D- Division, M- Multiplication, A- Adition & S- subtraction.
If you do so, your link formula will not work instead, you can see” = This the correct way. So, the sequence of the above formula is → 10*2 = 20 → 20 10 =30.
So, we have calculated the differential amount in row 13, and now we just need to put them in row 9.
Similar to leading spaces, nonprintable characters are also one of the reasons for excel formulas not working.
In case, if you have data with these characters, it’s better to take them off before working further.
