Calculating cells in order

I am trying to do calculations in a spreadsheet so that the cells are calculated in order; across a row, then down to the next row; across that row, down to the next and so on. In doing so I am using conditional statements to pick up text from a separate column of cells filled with text that I want to use. How do you get Excel to do this?

This leads to a second question. Not all cells will have text put in them. Conditional statements decide when to pick up text and put it in a cell. How do I track which cell I am up to in the column so that next time my conditional statement says go and get some text, I get text from the next cell which has not already had its content used?

Have tried to download recommended HTML maker. Keep getting internal server error notice.
Can you add attachments? or Can you work from something else?
With apologies
