I'm trying to automate a 60 step loop using the CycleThrough command button I made. For i from 1 to 60 I want to: ... set cell J5 = i ... set value of cell at row # i of range M2:M61 to the value of cell K7 That's it. Each time J5 get's changed ten or so variables get set via in-cell...
7. ### slope

I am having trouble with a slope equation. =slope(if(Q7:1506>1,Q7:Q1506),if(And(F7:F1506>Y1480,F7:F1506<Y1481),F7:F1506)) ctrl+Shift+entr Column Q is a bunch of data numbers only Column F is dates Column Y are the 2 dates I am looking between I want to get the slop of the data between the dates...
8. ### slope #N/A in one but not other

I tried using the SLOPE function but got #N/A as my first 4 values in column A equal #N/A. In column B all the values are numbers. So i used =SLOPE(IF(ISNUMBER(Monthly!\$A2:\$A37),Monthly!\$A2:\$A37),IF(ISNUMBER(Monthly!B2:B3),Monthly!B2:B3)) however i am now getting #Value ! the dataset is...
9. ### Slope and Intercept Formula Issue

Hello, all, I am having an issue with the calculation of my Y-intercept for a fit model I am generating. The graph is in lin/log format (Y axis is linear while X axis is Log10). For one example graph, here are the data for X and Y coordinates: X=0.00024, 0.0008, 0.0024, 0.008, 0.024, 0.08...
10. ### Slope and intercept function

I could not get the slope and intercept that I expected: What I get: <colgroup><col><col></colgroup><tbody> =INTERCEPT(A2:A113,B2:B113) 497.262 =SLOPE(A2:A113,B2:B113) -0.01124 </tbody> What I expect: intercept ~ 12.55 slope ~ -0.0102 Am I missing something...
11. ### Intercept and Slope Function

The output of Intercept and Slope function is not what I expected. <colgroup><col><col></colgroup><tbody> =INTERCEPT(A2:A113,B2:B113) 497.167 =SLOPE(A2:A113,B2:B113) -0.01124 </tbody> I expect to see Intercept around 12.558, slope around -0.0102 Am I missing something...
12. ### Alternative versions of SLOPE() and INTERCEPT()

Hi, This is a follow on from a related thread https://www.mrexcel.com/forum/excel-questions/1047034-line-worst-fit.html I'm interested in the 'line-of-best-fit' or 'trend line' for a set of scattered points on a graph. I know I can use SLOPE() and INTERCEPT() to get the equation of the line...
13. ### Slope with one Condition

I was hoping to be able to use a conditional array (possibly) to get a slope formula to work. I did something similar with the STDEV.S formula... IFERROR(STDEV.S(IF(\$B2=Sheet2!\$B\$5:\$B\$13479,Sheet2!\$E\$5:\$E\$13479)),"NO DATA") but can't get the slope one to work. I have a column of symbols in...

15. ### Slope formula for only last two rows when adding row

Going to add rows daily. I just want the slope for last two days. Looking for slope formula for only last two rows after I add a row/line at the bottom. For example my x is A1:A2 and my y is B1:B2. Adding row with coordinates are A3 and B3. Whats the slope formula for just the last two...
16. ### Calculating SLOPE & INTERCEPT for filtered data

Hi- Is there anyway to calculate slope and intercept when data is filtered? I tried using named ranges and the two variables stay the same regardless of the filtering. I would like them to update. Thanks!!!!
17. ### Stock Price Angle of Ascent

Hello Experts, I am trying to calculate the angle of ascent of stock prices as I am looking for an alert once that angle is over 45 degrees. Is that what the slope formula calculates using price and time? Do I then need to convert the slope to degrees? Thanks in advance!
18. ### Using SLOPE function across multiple sheets

I am using this formula =SLOPE('2012:2017'!\$A\$2,'2012:2017'!B61) to calculate the slope of a line. The sheets, 2012, 2013....2017 contains the data entry. The cell A2 in each sheet contains the x coordinates that are common and then B61 contains the first set of y coordinates that I want to...
19. ### Numbers and cell values in a Formula

Trying to get this to work slope({0,F4},{0,J3*60}) If I F9 the F4 and J3*60 parts first, the formula works as expected. It doesn't like the combination of actual numbers and cell references for some reason. Thanks
