My wife needs to build a scoring system spreadsheet for our horse/saddle club.

What she needs to know is if there is a way to make individual spreadsheets for different events effect another overall score.

Basically say there are 20 events with 10 contestants that all need the daily score, the daily score needs to be transferred and added to an overall year end score for the year end awards.

If there is other free software that might work better let me know !

Thanks for any help or advice !

Soooo.... you're running numbers then?

'horse/saddle club' sounds like a fancy name for the horse track...

You can do this easily. Y can add numbers between tabs just as you can inside a single tab. Just have a tab for each event and a final tab for the season. Or if you must have different spreadsheets instead of different tabs it will work the same way. I assume you know how to put in a simple addition formula if not let me know and I can describe it.

LOL, no not horse racing. Its horse shows, cow events, barrels, halter, more like a dog agility show. Some events score the handler, some score the animal.

My wife can do the simple formulas, she is having trouble figuring out how to tally a total on a seperate page. I will see if I can get her to post better what she needs in a few, she just got home.

She said if you can explain to us how to get the values to transfer to another tab or spreadsheet that she should be able to figure out how to do the rest of it. Its just the transfering over for the yearly totals thats got her stumped.

In the cell you'd like the value to show up in, type in =SheetName!CellName

For example, to get the value from Sheet 2 cell A1 into this cell, I'd type in: =Sheet2!A1

You can do the same with any operation, as well. For example, trying to add cell A1 from Sheet 2 and cell A1 from Sheet 3 would put in:

=Sheet2!A1+Sheet3!A1

To transfer it between sheets (tabs), you use the sheet name and exclamation mark.

For instance, to add two columns, A1-A5 on the first tab, and B1-B5 on the second tab, you'd type

=sum(sheet1!A1:A5,sheet2!B1:B5)


day late and a dollar short it seems...

She can even get crazy with VLOOKUP and other fun stuff, and if she's willing to learn a little Visual Basic, Excel can sing and dance.

People bash Microsoft, but I can count the number of programs I like more than Excel on one hand.

Vlookup allows you to look up values in a vertical table. For my Excel assignments I give my students, I use Vlookup to do a gradebook, or as a table for looking up shipping values.

IE:

0% F
60% D
70% C
80% B
90% A

You'll then create a formula to look up your value in that table and it'll return what letter grade the percent corresponds to.

Just type vlookup into msExcel, add some exclamation marks if you want to. Then take and hook your computer to your DVR. (I recommend duck tape.) Take and give it all a jolt of power using my patented lamp cord retro shocker method.

And bingo, all kinds of coolness. You will be able to watch V whenever you want, add enough exclamation marks and you can see episodes before they are aired I hear.

Just to add more fuel to the fire.. you can link data from separate workbooks as well and pull data in.

Personally, I'd just write a small database application that would handle all of the data reporting for me.

I did one for my dad's bowling league a few years ago when he was the league secretary.. I don't think that yours would be that much different.

As much as I dislike most of Microsoft's products, they sure did get Excel right. The amount of stuff I can make Excel do is freaking ridiculous, and I love that they incorporated VB, as I had some courses in that in high school and still remember enough to be dangerous

That will work, but there's an easier way. Go to a cell, type in "=", then go to the sheet containing the value you want in your formula, and select the cell (or cells) you want. Excel will add the "sheet1!" (or whatever sheet) automatically. Hit <ENTER> or continue with your formula.
