I have a big spread sheet that i would like to use the exact formula on the spreadsheet below.
column 1 column 2 column 3 column 4
Name Number Number exact formula
Ian 1 1 True
frank 2 2 True
bill 3 3 true
john 4 False
Craig 5 4 false
What i would like to happen is where there is no number for the exact number to look up i would like this to stay blank if possible? so in the case of john there is no second number to for the exact formula to pick up so i would like this left blank?
In a different cell then i would like to pick up how many false's there were and the name of the individual where the false has occured.
Is this possible?
If so Thank you for your help
with the data being in a1 to D6, and John being in row 5, the formula would be
(I've given you the formula for this row, but obviously it can be extended to all other cells in the row. I've assumed the test is the numbers being the same)
for the false count
where d2:D6 is the range you want to count
The final bit is possible, but as the count might be greater than one you would need an array filter to do this - and you MAY be better off simply using the filter option in excel to filter on column D being FALSE?
I can explain array filters if you need me to however!
