<p>The IF function adds flexibility to Google Spreadsheets by introducing decision making. </p>
<p>What the function does is test one or more specific conditions that you set to see if they are true or false.</p>...<p><a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://spreadsheets.about.com/b/2014/06/01/google-spreadsheets-if-function.htm">Read Full Post</a></p>http://spreadsheets.about.com/b/2014/06/01/google-spreadsheets-if-function.htmSun, 01 Jun 2014 05:46:19 +00002014-06-01T05:46:19ZQuickly Add Numbers in Google Spreadsheets
http://spreadsheets.about.com/b/2014/05/28/quickly-add-numbers-in-google-spreadsheets.htm
<p>One of the most common calculations performed in spreadsheet programs is summing <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=/od/c/g/Column_defined.htm">columns</a> or <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=/od/glossary/g/row_definition.htm">rows</a> of data.
</p>
<p>It is carried out so often, that Google Spreadsheets, like <a href=/od/tipsandfaqs/f/sum_autosum.htm>Excel</a> and other spreadsheet programs, has a built in SUM <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=/od/f/g/function_def.htm">function</a> to simplify the operation. </p>...<p><a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://spreadsheets.about.com/b/2014/05/28/quickly-add-numbers-in-google-spreadsheets.htm">Read Full Post</a></p>http://spreadsheets.about.com/b/2014/05/28/quickly-add-numbers-in-google-spreadsheets.htmWed, 28 May 2014 08:16:58 +00002014-05-28T08:16:58ZCounting in Google Spreadsheets
http://spreadsheets.about.com/b/2014/05/26/counting-in-google-spreadsheets.htm
<p>There is a group of <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=/od/f/g/function_def.htm">functions</a> in Google Spreadsheets called the <em>Count Functions</em>. </p>
<p>In general, this group is used to total the number of <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=/od/c/g/cell_definition.htm">cells</a> in a selected <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=/od/r/g/range_def.htm">range</a>. Each function in the group, however, does a slightly different job.</p>...<p><a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://spreadsheets.about.com/b/2014/05/26/counting-in-google-spreadsheets.htm">Read Full Post</a></p>http://spreadsheets.about.com/b/2014/05/26/counting-in-google-spreadsheets.htmMon, 26 May 2014 08:14:55 +00002014-05-26T08:14:55ZHow to Subtract in Google Spreadsheets

http://spreadsheets.about.com/b/2014/05/19/add-hyperlinks-and-bookmarks-in-excel.htm
<p>A hyperlink - the blue text in a web page that links to other web pages and documents - also provides quick and easy access between Excel <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=/od/uvw/g/workbook_def.htm">workbooks</a>. </p>
<p>Similarly, a bookmark can be used to create a link to a specific area in the current <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=/od/uvw/g/worksheet_def.htm">worksheet</a> or to different worksheets within the same file.</p>...<p><a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://spreadsheets.about.com/b/2014/05/19/add-hyperlinks-and-bookmarks-in-excel.htm">Read Full Post</a></p>http://spreadsheets.about.com/b/2014/05/19/add-hyperlinks-and-bookmarks-in-excel.htmMon, 19 May 2014 05:33:30 +00002014-05-19T05:33:30ZExcel DSUM Function
http://spreadsheets.about.com/b/2014/05/16/excel-dsum-function.htm
<p> Excel has a number of <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=/od/d/g/database.htm">database</a> functions such as DSUM.</p>
<p>How DSUM differs from the regular <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=/od/tipsandfaqs/f/sum_autosum.htm">SUM function</a> is that DSUM lets you specify one or more criteria which act as data <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=/od/f/g/2011-05-01-filter-definition.htm">filters</a> .</p>...<p><a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://spreadsheets.about.com/b/2014/05/16/excel-dsum-function.htm">Read Full Post</a></p>http://spreadsheets.about.com/b/2014/05/16/excel-dsum-function.htmFri, 16 May 2014 05:08:03 +00002014-05-16T05:08:03ZExcel Lookup Function - Array Form
http://spreadsheets.about.com/b/2014/05/14/excel-lookup-function-array-form.htm
<p>There are two forms for the <i>LOOKUP function</i> in Excel - the <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=/od/tipsandfaqs/ss/2012-12-24-excel-lookup-function-tutorial.htm">Vector Form</a> and the <i>Array Form</i>.</p>
<p>The difference between the two lies in where the function will look to retrieve <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=/od/d/g/data_definition.htm">data</a>.</p>...<p><a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://spreadsheets.about.com/b/2014/05/14/excel-lookup-function-array-form.htm">Read Full Post</a></p>http://spreadsheets.about.com/b/2014/05/14/excel-lookup-function-array-form.htmWed, 14 May 2014 03:58:55 +00002014-05-14T03:58:55ZExcel Lookup Function - Vector Form
http://spreadsheets.about.com/b/2014/05/12/excel-lookup-function-vector-form.htm
<p>There are a number of <i>lookup functions</i> in Excel such as <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=/od/excelfunctions/ss/vlookup.htm">VLOOKUP</a> and <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=/od/excelslookupfunctions/ss/2010-07-12-excel-2007-hlookup-tutorial-sbs.htm">HLOOKUP</a> but there is also a LOOKUP function.</p>
<p>This function is not as specialized as the other lookup functions so it can be used to find a single field of <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=/od/d/g/data_definition.htm">data</a> located in either a column or row of a data table.</p>...<p><a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://spreadsheets.about.com/b/2014/05/12/excel-lookup-function-vector-form.htm">Read Full Post</a></p>http://spreadsheets.about.com/b/2014/05/12/excel-lookup-function-vector-form.htmMon, 12 May 2014 05:29:13 +00002014-05-12T05:29:13ZExcel COLUMN Function
http://spreadsheets.about.com/b/2014/05/08/excel-column-function.htm
<p>Another of Excel's <i>lookup and reference</i> functions is the COLUMN function.</p>
<p> This function can be used in two ways.</p>
<p>One, it can be used to return the number of the column for the cell where the function is located in the worksheet.</p>...<p><a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://spreadsheets.about.com/b/2014/05/08/excel-column-function.htm">Read Full Post</a></p>http://spreadsheets.about.com/b/2014/05/08/excel-column-function.htmThu, 08 May 2014 05:08:33 +00002014-05-08T05:08:33Z
