## Pivot: Gain/loss Over Time

Feb 12, 2009

I have a excel 2000 spreadsheet that has beginning and ending dates for certain services. I'm trying to tease out what our customer base has been doing over time in aggregate- i.e. how many customers subscribing to X in a given month/year.

The only way I've been able to do this in the past has been generating pivot charts of start dates (with 'start mo' and 'start year' busted out) as a positive count (+1), stop dates (with 'stop mo' and 'stop year' busted out) with a negative count (-1), then copying these tables into yet another page where I mash them together to get the 'flow' of our customer base over time and generating charts from there. Needless to say, it seems a whole lot more clunky than it should be, and I'm having a hard time searching the innarwebs for similar examples (even though I'm sure it's been done before). Example:

## Find The Loss/gain Difference Between An Initial Value

## To Calculate That Loss Or Gain As A Percentage Of Their Original Weight

May 1, 2009

I run a slimming club and would like to use Excel to keep records of members weights, losses, gains etc. What I would like to do is enter their starting weight into a cell then each week when they are weighed enter a loss or gain in an adjacent cell. I would then like Excel to calculate that loss or gain as a percentage of their original weight. Is this possible?

Aug 20, 2014

I need to send out an order form (spreadsheet) to 100's of people that need to complete the form and email back to me as an attachment. If I was completing the order form myself I would use the "email" icon that I have pinned to my Quick Access Toolbar (QAT). However, most of the recipients don't even know the Toolbar exists.

Is there a way I can insert an icon / hyperlink in the spreadsheet that does the same thing as the QAT icon. I can insert text to say "click here to email your order" (or similar).

I need to keep it in an excel format and an icon is so much better that asking them to save to their hard-drive and attach to an email, etc.

The QAT icon is exactly what is needed but I need to provide a spreadsheet that works for folk who haven't got the icon.

## Cannot Gain Value Using Offset

May 27, 2008

I have a rather details and complicated procedure that in effect is designed to find a value (>=) than a text box value inputed.

There are 2 other list boxes (5 & 6) that are also designed to narrow down the search.

The values available in list box 5 are a customers name in column C.
(Sample sheet highlighted value in Yellow)

The values available in list box6 are a product type.
(Sample sheet highlighted in blue)
When i select a value in list box5 and in listbox6, i enter a numerical value into text box111.

I then click on a command button, to populate listbox3 with all found values in column C that are greater than or equal to the value in the text box.

Now comes the part i cannot seem to be able to do.

I need to be able to click on a selected value in list box 3, and find the value that is between 2-22 rows above it in column A and place this value in text box 4.
(List box 3 values are ONLY ever

## Import Macro Trying To Gain Acces To File That Doesn't Exist.

Dec 14, 2006

I get the following error:

"Run-time error '1004': "cmc4906.xls" File cannot be found.
Check the spelling of the file name and verify that the file
location is correct."

I am not trying to open a xls file. The path is clear and there are no file names with extensions in the path name (C:Weekly). I'm unclear of why the code thinks its looking for file cmc4906.xls and a xls file at that.

## Conditional Summing: Find Those Combinations Of Variable Values Which Generate Highest Total Gain

Jun 17, 2008

The aim is to find those combinations of variable values which generate highest total gain. I attached the spreadsheet which shows the variables (A through K) and a Gain column. I created 5 additional tabs which show all possible 2,3,4 and 5-member combinations of the variables. These tabs are like coordinates of which variable combinations should be examined. As an example I used the first combination from the second tab = A and B. If you look at these two columns on the EXAMPLE CALCULATION tab you will see 7,7 in the Number combination which is the first number pair for these two variables. The headings of the red and the yellow columns calculate the total count for this number pair and the total gain. These were recorded on a separate EXAMPLE RESULTS tab along with some other pairs which appear afterwards (these were recorded only from the first 39 rows of the AB data). I need a macro which will cycle through each variable pair (only using the combinations from the tab 2 for now, annd later from 3,4 and 5 tabs) collecting statistics for each unique number combination it encounters (printing to a separate sheet one after one), such as shown on the EXAMPLE RESULTS.

## Totalling A Win Loss Column

Sep 27, 2009

I have two columns for a Home and an Away win-loss records for a team over a few seasons. The win-loss stats in each column are in the form 24-13 (2-two digit numbers with a hyphen in between). How can I get a total at the bottom of the column for all the win-losses?

## Calculate The Profit And Loss

Jul 20, 2007

I have a trading system spreadsheet that I am at a loss as to how to calculate the profit and loss.

I was unable to attach a sample of the spreadsheet. I hope this explanation works. If not, I could email it.

Where:
Market position is either 1 or -1
Entry price is the price where the position is reversed.

For example:
H3=1 and I3=100.56, then
H4=-1 and I4=100.88, then
H5=1 and I5=100.53

I need to calculate the profit as follows:
I4 - I3 (because market position of 1 expects the price to go up) and then,
I4 - I5 (because market position of -1 expects the price to go down)

I want to calculate this as a running total to the bottom of the column.

This is the formula I was working with, but it doesn't work:

=IF(OR(\$J4="",ISERROR(MATCH(-\$J4,\$J4:\$J\$55,0)),),"",\$J4*(OFFSET(\$K4,MATCH (-\$J4,\$J4:\$J\$55,0)-1,)-\$K4))

## Inventory And Profit/Loss

Feb 11, 2007

I have a workbook that contains several worksheets. The 2 important sheets are Imports and Sales.

In reading the MS KB, the help screens and this forum, I found a way to create a pivot table from 2 sheets using Data>Pivot Table>Multiple Consolidation Ranges. While that PT will provide a basic inventory and profit picture, it only allows 4 selects.

When these products are imported there are several SKU's. What gums up the works is there are several vendors for the same SKU's. Each vendor has a different price. The selling price is constant so the profit made on each particular item varies.

I would like to be able to keep track of inventory by vendor as well as profit by vendor.

Using the Consolidation PT does not seem to work.

I also tried making one sheet to hold all the data. i.e. data showing imports and sales. However, each entry is driven by the date. So while item A was received on 1/1/07, it was not sold until 1/2/07. The necessary columns for imports are filled in while the columns for sales remain blank until it is their row entry indicating a particular sale. At which point all the columns regarding Imports are blank. I swear, looking at the data sheet with all those blanks (actually0's) is like looking at a mouth full of broken teeth. The resulting PT is also not attractive.

I can not imagine I am the first person to have this problem. How do others handle figuring inventory and profits when you have two sheets. Are Pivot Tables the wrong solution? What would be better?

## Tracking Weight Loss In Excel

Aug 2, 2008

How do I track my total weight loss in excel? Here is an example of what I am trying to do.

8/1/2008 228lbs
8/2/2008 225lbs
8/3/2008 223lbs

Total 5lbs

I would like use a formula that would subtract my absolute weight loss total day by day in August. Basically, I want the total "cell" to equate to my total weight loss in August. For Example after 8/3/08 the "total cell" should equate to 5 lbs. What formula do I use to do this?

## Formatting Dates To Won-loss Values

Jan 12, 2010

I currently copy/paste sports data from the web into MS Excel. One of the columns pasted contains "Won-Loss", which appears as '1-0' on the web. However, once the data is pasted, Excel identifies this field as a date and changes the value of '1-0' to 'Jan-'00. I would like to insert a new column and convert the field back to text (i.e. Jan-00 to 1-0). I have attempted several formulas, however no luck as of yet.

## Unable To Create Simple Win / Loss Chart

Dec 4, 2012

I have a # of games played column (Column A), a # of games won column (Column B), and a number of games lost column (Column C).

I'm trying to make it so Column C automatically enters the number when I put in the number in Column B.

Example:

Games Played........Win........Loss
1.........................1...........0
2.........................1...........1
3.........................1...........2
4.........................2...........2

For the fifth game played, if I won it, how do i make the 2 to automatically enter into the loss column when I put in the number 3 in the win column?

## Profit / Loss Payroll And Cost Of Supplies

Mar 6, 2013

I have multiple departments I need to keep track of multiple numbers with. For example, I need to see the cost of payroll for last fiscal year, vs this fiscal year and have excel show that as a gain (bad) or shrink (good).

I need to track sales this FY vs last FY, obviously, a gain is good and shrink is bad.

Finally, I need to track d&d goods this FY vs last FY.

Where I'm getting held up is, for example last year's payroll was 12000 and this year's is 12500 but next months is 11000 this FY vs 13000. How do I get excel to figure out that payroll decreasing is good and not just do simple subtraction or negative addition thereby allowing me to just plug the numbers in and excel figure out if what I'm throwing at the cell is bad or good comparing to last year?

Also, if I could figure out the if/then to show positive numbers green and negative numbers red that would be quite awesome too.

## Saving Then Closing Causes The Loss Of Buttons For Macros?

## Friction Loss Calculator For Fire Hose

Apr 17, 2008

I am attempting to create a friction loss calculator for fire hose, I am using a known formula that calculates the loss based on volume and diameter for pipe. the difference that I have with fire hose in lieu of pipe is that the hose diameter changes with the pressure drop.

I have 3 variables that i input, pressure, beginning diameter and length. however
as the water flows through the line the pressure changes in turn the diameter changes, I would like to set up my spreadsheet so that the initial variables inputed yield the correct diameter, and then reference back to the initial equation and recalculate based on the yeilded diameter, and recalculates,

I can determine the friction loss at 1 foot, in turn determine the diameter at 2 foot, but I wish the spreadsheet to work the calculation over the entire length.

## How To Create Formula For Stop-loss Logic

May 21, 2014

I'm trying to create an excel spreadsheet that keeps track of the highest value from a dynamic series. First a bit of background:

A manufacturer produces widgets made from gold. Therefore in order to quote manufacturing prices, they typically get a live gold price using Excel's web services and if the live price is higher that the last gold price they used, then they update their base price list for gold components. If the live price is lower than the last gold price they used, the last gold price does not change.

I'm trying to produce the above logic in Excel using:

Cell A1: [Excel data connection to pull live Gold price] - no problem here

Cell A2: dynamic 'price' that only updates if cell A1 is higher than cell A2

Cell A2 is where I'm getting stuck. I can't think of how to create a formula that updates cell A2 if cell A1 is higher.

## Prevent Loss Of Copied Data On Clipboard

Sep 26, 2007

Using a macro I want to paste from the clip board.
I can manually do this by opening the clipboard, selecting the data, which pastes to my specified location.

The macro copies to the clipboard okay, but loses the data that I want to paste because just before pasting I have to clear data which was previously been filtered - I have to do this at this point. The macro bogs down. If I end the macro there, I can manually open the clip board and choose the data I copied from there and paste it that way. I'd like the macro to do this for me.

## Prevent Loss Of Data - Error Message Pops Up

Sep 11, 2013

What is this error message that is popping up when I try to insert a blank row of cells?

"To prevent possible loss of data, Excel cannot shift nonblank cells off of the worksheet. Select another location in which to insert new cells, or delete data from the end of your worksheet.

If you do not have data in cells that can be shifted off the worksheet, you can reset which cells Excel considers nonblank. To do this, press CTRL + End to locate the last nonblank cell on the worksheet. Delete this cell and all cells between it and the last row and column of your data then save."

## VBScript To Call Excel Macro - Loss Of Tab Functionality?

Aug 29, 2013

I am trying to open an Excel Workbook which in turn will automatically run a macro on loading which is a Userform. The Userform will contain 3 boxes, just some simple text boxes.

I don't want the Excel Workbook to show in the background, so I have opted to go for a VBScript to call the Excel Application and open the spreadsheet...

I have a current .vbs script which is as follows...

Code:
