Excel is not updating calculations
So, we have calculated the differential amount in row 13, and now we just need to put them in row 9.
One simple way is by linking row 13 cells in row 9. You will most likely see 30, indeed that’s the correct answer… According to BODMAS rule, the calculation will take place based on a sequence i.e → B- Brackets, O- Order, D- Division, M- Multiplication, A- Adition & S- subtraction.
Show formulas is an option in excel to display all the workbook formulas with a single click.
This option is very useful to find out all the formulas in a worksheet.
The above research paper may not be directly linked to formulas not working in excel, but there is a point here: Very well built & tested software like MS Excel can go wrong in terms understanding our data to recalculate.
In case, if you have data with these characters, it’s better to take them off before working further.
How to fix this issue: Similar to trim, you can use the CLEAN formula to delete these characters.
Having said that, we need to be little careful while using show formulas option, otherwise, you might end up with something like below.
Can you see Today formula is being displayed as a formula instead of showing actual date? How to fix this issue: It’s very simple: Head over to Formulas → Under formula Auditing → Click on “Show Formulas” (With the first click formulas will show up and Second click they will hide behind cells and start working) [Please refer above screenshot] You have been extracting data using CSV (comma separated values) format, then you’re data mostly exposed to unwanted spaces.
