123 formulas to be converted to excel formulas

123 formulas to be converted to excel formulas

123 formulas to be converted to excel formulas

Hello! I'm a lotus 123 user and trying to get hold of MS Excel because our company switch from SMARTSUITE to OFFICE XP.   I am trying to get the equivalent smartsuite formulas to MS Excel formulas.

The following formulas i need are the following:
@Length     | ?
@Mid        | ?
@LEFT       | ?
@RIGHT      | ?
@VLOOKUP    | ?
@STRING     | ?
@IF         | ?
@SUMIF      | ?
@FIND       | ?
@MATCODE    | ?
@VALUE      | ?

Anybody that can shed light to my problem is very much appreciated. Many Thanks!

RE: 123 formulas to be converted to excel formulas

I believe that excel uses an = sign in front of a function instead of an @. You should be able to look in excel help and get help for the various arguments, just like you can in lotus.

I would guess that most of those you listed would work pretty much the same.

I don't recognize matcode, if it is possible to make your own functions, this may be one of those that you will have to recreate in excel. If it is necessary to do that, a posting in the excel forum would probably get you help.

good luck.
