Excel formula not updating automatically

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.

If you do so, your link formula will not work instead, you can see” = This the correct way. So, the sequence of the above formula is → 10*2 = 20 → 20 10 =30.

Same goes with conditional formulas like IF, AND, OR. Your formulas can go wrong if you don’t consider BODMAS.

If you haven’t done that then you will end up with incorrect results.

How to fix this issue: Head over to Formulas → Calculation → Click on Calculate now/Calculate Sheet option.

It’s very important to specify text within double quotes. How to fix this issue: It’s very simple, you just need to change sequence by using parentheses like below.

Otherwise, this is one of the reasons for excel formulas not working. It’s a mathematical rule to determine an order of operations. =(30 40)*2 So, anything in brackets will be calculated first and then it will go to next operation.

This option is very useful to find out all the formulas in a worksheet.

It’s worth to re-format lookup column before using Vlookup formula. Personally, I’ve struggled many times with these type of errors.

For example, in our below Expense Budget table, we need to add some plug (adjustment number) to match with the targets.

But, if you refer above formatting section, you could see that they have been formatted as text.

This, in turn, will trigger #N/A error while adding Vlookup formula.
