Id figure id post this question here.

Does anybody know how to refer to all previous columns?

For instance, say im in (F16), I want that cell to return 0 if any other previous column
(A16:E16) is greater than 0.

Thanks!

i'm taking an entire class on getting excel to do stuff like that - it's a bit of a pain, but such a good learning experience. Soon, my i-banker friends will have nothing on my excel skills! I am currently the proud parent of a very smoking pivot table.

This wasn't the question, but my inner excel nerd can't help it....

If the cells contained text and not numbers and you wanted to see if any of the cells were nonblank, you could use the following (just fyi in case it came up):

if(or(a1<>"",b1<>""c1<>"",d1<>"",e1<>"")),"nonblank","blank") or whatever other description you wanted to replace...

Is this a class at Fuqua or an online class? I want to work on this before I get to b-school and will probably just grab a book off amazon. The two books I am currently thinking about are "Principles of Finance with Excel" by Simon Benninga and "Business Analysis with Microsoft Excel" by Conrad Carlberg. Does anyone have any experience with these books, or others that they recommend?

We have a 'Training the Street' seminar this weekend. A 2 day 16 hour intensive modeling
workshop. I'm looking forward to it, but at the same time, somewhat fearful

Though it seems every job I've interviewed for be it strategy, finance, or marketing i've
been asked about my excel modeling experience, which to date is minimal.

Does anyone know VBA for Excel?

I'm supposed to make a VBA function of my choosing. Here's what I've got:

(column A)
Euros
.5
78
234
etc

(Column B)
Dollars
this is where I put my formula, which will refer to my function.

I just don't really get how the VBA view/function and the excel formula relate.

Can anyone help? (Please don't just post an answer, but explain what's going on.)

thanks
aau
