Struggling with this:
Suppose I want to shortlist companies that serve the priority industry vertical of a country. So I have the industries served by company (one column for each industry) and (cont)

Since you're looking for yes in certain row locations, I feel like you should use index and if but you might be able to use sumproduct() I'd Google both and try it out. For sumproduct() look for sumproduct() to replace sumif


I think you need to build it like a database rather than a table.

Country | Industry | industry served? | primary industry? | score

If the above are each columns, then you can run if statements on that last column to get your score. Then run pivots to get the table view you want


This is hacky and not ideal (cleanest, but more complex method probably uses Huron 1’s method. It’ll require some trial and error though), but it’ll get the job done. Assuming your list of countries in in cells A2:A101 (including header), industries across the top in B2:Z2, and yes’s in cells B3:Z101. You have your list of priority countries in cells A1000:A1010 (just somewhere out of the way). In cell B1, put in =IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(B2, $A$1000:$A$1010,1,0)),FALSE,TRUE). Drag this formula to the right all the way to cell Z1. Now you have T/F across the top for if an industry is priority. In cell AA3, put =IF(AND(B3=“Yes”,B1=TRUE), 3, 0). Drag this formula down and right to AY101. This gives a score of 3 if a company is in an industry and that industry is priority. In cell AZ3, put =SUM(AA3:AY3) and drag this down. Now in column AZ, you will have the sum of scores for each company.


(Cont) and yes/no for whether that industry is served.
Then I also have the priority industries for the country.
I want to have an output that says if the company serves the priority industries then it’s a score 3.
How do I do this?

Hey guys, I have a Google spreadsheet where each cell has multiple links separated by semi-colons.

How would you get the links to show up in different rows WITHIN a cell? (Pictured is what I want to achieve).

There has to be a way to restrict access on a worksheet so that only specific cells can be edited.

No matter how many times I’ve tried to automate and simplify generating reports to just inputting data into specific highlighted boxes, someone just have to try to edit a completely different cell then asking why the worksheet is “broken.”

I have a table of different tickers of stocks and their according prices on different dates and times (hour and minute shown, no seconds).

At my old firms when I would be using excel and modeling using the font schemes (blue, green, black for hardcode, link, and formula) I could use the “control shift ;” to shift through the schemes. My new firm doesn’t do this. Does anyone know why the shortcut would be different and how I can add it back?


Does anyone know why negative IRR sometimes gives you a NUM error? A lot of googling and experimenting but cannot pin down what’s going on.
