I'm taking an online computer class & I'll admit upfront that I am not very good with Excel. (Obviously...that's why I'm posting this thread.) I would appreciate any help someone could give me. I'm stuck on an assignment (the hardest & last assignment for the Excel section) for this class & have been beating my head on my desk for the last hour & a half. Anyway...my problem is when I'm trying to enter in formulas. Ex: (b2 * (b3 / (1 - b6))...I've tried typing the formula WITH spaces & WITHOUT...about 900 times! WHY is nothing showing up in my totals?! Does it have something to do with absolute cell references or relative cell references or some shit?! I have re-read that section in the chapter about 5 times. I'm STUCK & about to give up & email my instructor or a fellow classmate for help. Nothing like procrastinating! Thanks in advance for your help! I would really appreciate it. P.S. Thanks Eric for suggesting I try for help here. I owe ya 1.
