Using array formulas
This worksheet stores the previous sorting times in minutes and percentage target in cells
B2:B5 and C2:C5, respectively. The array formula to calculate the targets for each of the four
centers is =B2:B5*C2:C5 , which, when entered into cells D2:D5 by pressing Ctrl+Shift+Enter,
would appear as {= B2:B5*C2:C5} .
To edit an array formula, you must select every cell that contains the array formula,
click the formula bar to activate it, edit the formula on the formula bar, and then press
Ctrl+Shift+Enter to re-enter the formula as an array formula.
TIP Many operations that used to require an array formula can now be calculated by using
functions such as SUMIFS and COUNTIFS .
In this exercise, you’ll create and edit array formulas.
SET UP You need the FuelSurcharges workbook located in the Chapter03 practice file
folder to complete this exercise. Open the workbook, and then follow the steps.
1
If necessary, click the Fuel sheet tab to display the Fuel worksheet.
2
Select cells C11:F11 .
3
Enter the formula =C3*C9:F9 and then press Ctrl+Shift+Enter to add the formula
{=C3*C9:F9} to cells C11:F11 .
4
With cells C11:F11 still selected, click the formula bar, edit the formula so it reads
=C3*C10:F10 , and then press Ctrl+Shift+Enter to change the array formula to
{=C3*C10:F10} .
5
Click the Volume sheet tab to display the Volume worksheet.
6
Select cells D4:D7 .
7
Enter the formula =B4:B7*C4:C7 and then press Ctrl+Shift+Enter to add the
formula {=B4:B7*C4:C7} to cells D4:D7 .
CLEAN UP Close the FuelSurcharges workbook, saving your changes if you want to.
