Jason :

Hello and thank you for your question today. My name is Jason. I look forward to helping you today.

Jason :

Anything is possible with Excel.

Jason :

In order to sum the row and multiply it by 20, you would use the following formula:
=SUM(A1:ZZ1)*20

Jason :

That would sum the A row and multiply it by 20.

Yes, agreed if it was just a set of numbers but you certainly won't get paid for such a simplistic answer.

The trick is to be able to cope with the > (greater than) sign - that is what I can seem to work out & will pay for - see my example.

Microsoft Office Technician: Jason Jones, Computer Technician replied 4 years ago

Okay.

You did not specify that it would have the greater than sign. I assumed that the use of the > sign was an error on your part.

So, there will always be an > sign in the row?

Please, give me 3 examples of what you are looking for.

Thank you.
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

No, the > is the sticking point - otherwise I would need an expert!!

refer to the original question - you will see there are two greater than signs - hardly a typo twice.

Examples in addition to the one already provided are

6, 12, >14, 34, >250, 12 when summed = >328

9, 37, >34, 18 when summed = >98

What I'm looking for is a similar Function in Excel to the ABS command - it will ignore sign (+/-) of a number when it is used in formulas.

Just need a Function that ignores the > and then if present puts it back at the end.

Thank you.

In this case, you will need a vba function written.

Can you give me more information on how you wish to implement this?

Will this function always look in the same row or will it be different?
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

Yes it will be applied to a number of columns in the same row.

Microsoft Office Technician: Jason Jones, Computer Technician replied 4 years ago
Thank you for the update David.

It did require a routine to be written.

Here is the example document that I have to show you:

After you open the document, be sure to enable Macros.

When you press the button, it will sum the first row as you described.

You can edit the Macro by clicking the Developer tab, clicking Visual Basic, then double clicking the Module that it is in.

If you have any questions, please, let me know.
