Customer Question
I use this code =INDEX(B:B,SMALL(IF(A2:A1000<1...
I use this code =INDEX(B:B,SMALL(IF(A2:A1000<1, ROW(A2:A1000)),RANDBETWEEN(1, COUNTIF(A2:A1000,"<1")))) to pick a random cell from the b column that doesnt have 100% set in the a column. This works in excel on a laptop if you press ctrl+shift+enter right after pasting it. I just purchased a tablet and istalled the excel mobile app. This code doesn't work on a tablet because ctrl is missing on the keyboard to perform cse and I learnd you apparently cannot use formulas on excel mobile anyway. Someone told me that maybe it could be converted to an "aggregate"? Which ever method it takes I just need this code/concept to work on excel mobile specifically. Thanks

Hi, welcome and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am glad to assist you today.

I am very sorry about your issues. Can you please send me a sample copy or dummy of your Excel file so that I can check your array formula and convert it into an aggregate? You can use the paper clip icon to attach the file when you reply, or you can upload it to http://filesXpress.com and then give me the short download link.

Please let me know by replying to me here so that I can help you further.

Best regards,
Jess

Here it is thank you
Microsoft Office Technician: Jess M., Computer Support Specialist replied 2 years ago

Thank you. Please give me a moment to check the file and work on the aggregate conversion.

Microsoft Office Technician: Jess M., Computer Support Specialist replied 2 years ago

Is this a correct sample file? All the percentages in column A is 0%. Also, is the formula used only on the top cell in column B?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Correct, this is a new list so all of the tasks are 0% complete. B1 is the only place the code is used. I just realized my original question did paste correctly and is incorrect. I will copy it again so you know exactly what i'm trying to do... Hold on
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I meant this as the original question:
I use this code =INDEX(B:B,SMALL(IF(A2:A1000<1, ROW(A2:A1000)),RANDBETWEEN(1, COUNTIF(A2:A1000,"<1")))) to pick a random cell from the b column that doesnt have 100% set in the a column.

Microsoft Office Technician: Jess M., Computer Support Specialist replied 2 years ago

Ok, thank you for that information. Please give me a moment to work on the conversion to aggregate.

Oh, I have seen your full question already.

Ask Your Own Microsoft Office Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It does not have to be an aggregate specifically. I simply need cell B1 to pick some random cell's text from B2 down if the cell left from 'x picked cell' (column A2 down) is less than 100 every time i hit calculate. I only want the code to take up one cell, B1 please.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
On second thought, never mind. Can I just have refund if I was charged already please?
Microsoft Office Technician: Jess M., Computer Support Specialist replied 2 years ago

I was working on the aggregate as I thought it is what you required and I also work on other options. But yes, we can close this question and request for your refund instead.

Thank you for using our service.

Best regards,

Jess
