A long time ago, I wrote a tutorial on creating custom labels in Microsoft Word. Creating a custom label is necessary only if you don’t plan to use the many inbuilt label templates. The next step after creating a custom label is the actual label merge process.
How fast is your internet connection? If it is as slow as mine and you blog regularly, then you will understand the necessity of doing something to speed up the loading of pages of your WordPress Administration area. Fortunately, WordPress comes inbuilt with this support.
I learnt to play the piano when I was eight and the journey continued until the age of 13, when other priorities took over. Since then I’ve dabbled my way around a keyboard never really taking it up seriously. Hmmm…
Last year, as part of our admissions team duties, we were required to send out prospectus to students all over India. These ranged from a minimum of fifty envelopes to over 150 at a time. During a promotion campaign we printed around 90,000 labels!
Three weeks back I covered creating Single Variable Data Tables in Excel. As promised, in this tutorial I will cover creating a two variable data table. This tutorial assumes that you have read the earlier one and are comfortable with creating a single variable data table.
If there is one thing I really don’t like to hear is any sound when I am starting up the computer. Windows Vista doesn’t allow you to customize the startup sound and you are stuck with the same version. Well, I chose to disable it.
In my last Excel Tutorial, I covered using SUMIFS and SUMPRODUCT.
Data Tables is also an advanced topic in Microsoft Excel that falls under the category of What-If Analysis. What-If or Sensitivity Analysis is carried out to study the variation of the output to changes in the input variable.
Consider a case of compound interest, where you invest a certain amount of money in a bank deposit and the amount is compounded every year.
Formula for calculating compound interest:
A = P * (1 + r/n) ^ nt
- P = principal amount (initial investment)
- r = annual interest rate (as a decimal)
- n = number of times the interest is compounded per year
- t = number of years
- A = amount after time t
Now, if suppose we want to see what the final amount will be at different interests rates, we can quickly use a data table for the same.
The title of the post is a bit of a misnomer because the SUMIF function in Excel does not allow you to have more than condition.
Excel 2007 introduced the SUMIFS function which allowed for multiple conditions. However, if you are using any version prior to Excel 2007 or if the persons who will be using your Excel workbook will be using a version prior to Excel 2007, then the SUMIF function will throw up an error.
That is a problem a colleague faced at work. To solve this problem you can use SUMPRODUCT along with double negation. The double negation is simply two minus signs one after an another. The net effect is that it doesn’t change the value of the calculations.
