The Little Green Triangle (LGT) is an indicator to alert you to a potential error in your formula. The LGT doesn't stop you from entering a formula (with or without an error), it's just an alert to check that it's OK. If you're happy with the formula you've entered, then you can just ignore the LGT and carry on.
If it's bugging you, you can turn off background error checking.
Go Tools / Error Checking / Options / and uncheck "Enable background error checking". That will turn off the LGTs.

SOURCE: How do I say look at cell on left rather than the cell number

vlookup can only locate values within the lookup range and to the right of the lookup column. to address your concern, i'd advise you to create a dummy column within the lookup range (and hide it) and link it to the lookup column. this way, we won't need a (-) column index number.

Red triangle on left hand top corner - K800i

triangle means roaming if its a red triangle then your internet is turned off while roaming

go to options>mobile network> data services and select what setting you would like either on all the time, off, or off while roaming

solid triangle means extended network (coverage with another carrier that your service provider has an agreement with). some services might not work

blinking triangle is roaming (on a network with no agreement)...most carriers have simply disabled roaming entirely, you either get their network, or extended network to avoid additional charges. int'l roaming is different, not restricted. if you're near either of the borders, i'd say choose "home only" under network options to avoid int'l charges

Hope that helps

Can we use cut copy paste in excel

You do not need to cut copy or paste to get this to work. If you click on the cell that the formula is currently in, you will see that the border of the cell changes and in the lower right corner of the cell there is a small square. If you move your mouse pointer over that little square your pointer should change to a small plus sign. Click and drag to the right and the formula will automatically change to the next set of cells.
