I have this example above which i want to know what is the total % change from Jan to Jun. In the total column, the result i got is 19% using formula
=1*(1+B6)*(1+C6)*(1+D6)*(1+E6)*(1+F6)*(1+G6)-1.

Is there any other more simplified or better formula that can be used actually?

Percentage Of A Cumulative Target
Cells D 5 to D 36 are representing day 1 to day 31 of the month. clocked working hours of the employees will be entered to these cells. they are supposed to meet the target of 8 hours clocked at the end of each working day. that means on day 1 the target is 8 hours, day 2 it is 16 hours, day 3, it is 24 hours. i want to see the cumulative progress in ( percentage) on any give day. That means on each day the clocked hours should be compared with the actual cumulative target until that day.

Count Of Cumulative Percentage Of Total
I have a table representing the usage of several thousand product in a market. Each row represents a product and one column indicates the frequency of use. I'd like to find out how many products represent the Nth percentage of the whole, when ranked from most used to least.

Shorter, if I want to know the Top 25%, how many products equate to the top 25% of all product frequency? ....

How To Find Number Of Rows That Meets Cumulative Percentage Critieria
I have a dataset in Excel 2007 where I need to determine the number of census tracts (as rows) it takes for each column of data values (populations of different ethnic groups) to reach a cumulative percentage of 50% of their City group total. This is a measure of concentration that will vary from group to group.

I can do this manually by sorting each column from largest population percentage to smallest population percentage, then shift-click selecting the first row, scrolling down until I see the sum of percentages shown in the bottom right corner first reaches 50.000% or more.

Is there a cell formula I can use to determine the number of rows it takes to meet the criteria? I have to do this for 250 columns.

Is there a cell formula I can use to determine the number of rows it takes for a column of data values to reach a specific amount, that is first reach a cumulative percentage of 50.000% of the column total? It must be based on the data values from largest to smallest but I don't want to have to manually sort each column I have.

Calculate The Percentage
I have attached a file with both a sample section of data on the first sheet and the outcome I would like on the second sheet... I would do it all manually but there are over 200,000 rows in the actual file.

The macro needs to calculate the percentage of sale for each reference number within each part number and move down to the next part number and do the same until it reaches the bottom.

Formula- To Calculate The Amount Due Based On Cumulative Sales Once A Breakpoint Amount Is Reached
I need a formula to calculate the amount due based on cumulative sales once a breakpoint amount is reached.

Example:

Breakpoint:
cum sales are > 500 pay at 3%
cum sales are >1,000 pay at 2%

month/ sales/ cumul sales/ amount due
jan/ 100.00/ 100.00/ 0
feb/ 600.00/ 700.00/ 6.00
mar/ 600.00/ 1,300.00/ 18.00

and so on...until the end of year.

Automatically Calculate The Percentage
code needed to be able to automatically calculate the percentage needed from one year to the next. I simply need it to automatically create a third column each time the copy old data button is pressed, and I need the column to have the percent increase ((current year - past year)/current year). Hopefully you can understand what I am aiming for. I have the current code below, and I will attach a compressed and stripped version of my workbook.

Formula Calculate The Percentage
I have a row of numbers from 1 to 26 in cells A1 to Z1 representing numbers
'chosen' at random by 500 unique people.

I have another row of numbers representing the 'frequency' that the
aforementioned number was chosen in cells A2 to Z2.

Example:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 ...
10 4 16 9 23 20 61 13 18 43 17 ...

Is there a formula that I could use to calculate the percentage (0%-100%)
that each number was chosen?

Calculate Weighted Percentage
In my spreadsheet (testing.xls) I have a chart to mark the quality of a phone call based on a list of 8elements being judged. I have a likert scale for the quality result for each element, say for example 5 for highest, 3 for average, 1 for the poor, 0 for very poor and NA for an element which is not counted.

At the bottom of my table I have a cell where it would work out the % based on the outcome of the result from the different cells being ticked, what would i need to do to have excel work this out for me? Please bare in mind that if there is for example 1 element out of the 8 elements marked as NA the result would be divided 7 instead of 8.

Extract And Calculate Percentage (%)
In the attched sheet, I am wanting to draw data from the worksheet "On-Off" Array $AI$14:$AJ$91 into column AA, while at the same time choosing the closest match to the time. I have managed to get the closest matching time into column AC.

What I am having trouble with is now calculating the number of staff on that break time (column Z) against the number of staff rostered on at that stage "On-Off" (column AJ). I thought it would be a simple division and format as a percentage, however something in it using the extract from the "On-Off" sheet is stopping me, and I cannot figure it out.

Calculate Percentage Of Attendances
What I have is four columns with data. First column name second column number third column name fourth a number. Trying to get the total of the numbers for the names. So the first and third columns have names in them and they can be in each column or just once in either. I need to get a total column with all the unique names and then their corresponding number (added together if they are in both columns) to display the name and total. The names could be duplicated in each column as we (hopefully) have a lot of the same people coming week in week out.

What it is being used for is a two week and four week revolving attendance. I have a daily sheet one that I am using data filter unique values and then a countif to show me their attendance for the week. Putting it into a totals page sheet with week 1 week 2 etc.

So looking for a way to get all the unique names and their corrorsponding cell value added together to show the persons attendance for two weeks and then the month.

Calculate To Percentage Reached, Then Start Over
I have a column that is a percentage(p%) which measures the fullness of the location(loc) that the item(ite) is in, which also has a corresponding location(loc) and item column(ite).

What I need to do is add as many items(ite) to one location(loc) as possible without exceeding 100%(p%), however if the value exceeds 100%(p%) then we need to start all over in a new location. The end result would be an unknown amount of unused locations.

If p% < 100 then add the next row's p% value, else start over with a new location. I am trying to add as many items to one location as possible, and once a location fills up, we will use the next one.

Calculate Numbers Required For X Percentage
what I'm trying to do.

Background:
I play a game that requires 5 members to play, however you can have more then 5 members on the team. In order for a player to receive points for playing they must have played at least 30% of the total games played. The problem for me is when trying to figure out how many games someone needs to play to get to 30%, the total goes up as they play those games.

What I would like to accomplish:
I'm looking for help on a formula that would figure out how many games a player would need to play to get to 30%. I have a column that is total games played, %of games played by player, games played by player, and games needed to play to get to 30%. Basically the user would enter the # of games played by each player, and the total games played overall for the team for that week, the spreadsheet would then show the # of games each player that isn't above 30% would need to play.

I tried to make the question as clear as possible, if anyone needs clarification,

Assume cell A is 0.02 and cell B is 0.03 the difference is 0.01 and the percentage of the difference would be 33% or 0.01/0.03, my problem is when cell A is 0.04 and cell B is 0.01 the same formula wouldn’t work in both cases since in the first A<B and the second A>B is there a way that I can take the difference and divide it by the greater of A and B without having to do it manually?

Multiple Drop Down Menu To Calculate A Percentage

Legend (this are in cells $A$7:$A$11)
NA - Not Applicable
0 - Not attempted
1 - Not Yet Competant
2 - Satisfactory
3 - Exceedes Expectations

Other cells have Data Validation using Allow List =$A$7:$A$11 to make the drop down menu option appear. What I would like to do is add a 'hidden number' on cells A8:A11 (A8=0, A9=1, A10=2, A11=3) A7, being NA isn't included in the formula I want to set up.

In cells later on I'd like to make a formula that takes those 'hidden numbers' into account and works out an average. So 'hidden number' / 'potential total' and make the cell display as a percentage, the 'potential total would have to take into consideration that a value has been set, but not use that value, and times the number of values set by three.

Cumulative Totals
This problem has come at the end of a big exercise whereby I've managed to construct a spreadsheet that automates three payment processes based on various VLookups to another file. However, I've come to a stage where I need to pre-empt a payment allocation based on cumulative totals.

I'll try and explain clearly below but I've also attached a spreadsheet showing the intended result (along with a copy without the output so that someone can add in the formula - again, if it exists.

So, this all centres around a code allocated to our clients and a declaration that they complete. Say client code "Apple1" (col E) sends in instructions to pay on a position of "650,000" (col F). Within our existing spreadsheet we have an available position of "800,000" which can be seen by totalling column G for client code "Apple 1".

So that's the first requirement - for all rows on my existing spreadsheet for client code "Apple1", I want to add the cumulative total of column G ("800,000") I'd like this captured in column H, as per my example.

We can then make payment based on their declaration, up to their total available amount. However, we need to pay them in stages according to our existing allocations (col G). Therefore, taking the first example, their declaration show's an available position of 650,000, their total position is 800,000 and the available nominal amount for that row (col G) is 200,000 - so they can be paid on that full amount therefore, 200,000 should be shown in cell I3.

So now, they've got 450,000 left to be paid and cell G4 again shows a position of 200,000, so once again, cell I4 should show 200,000.

The client "Apple1" now has a payment amount remaining of 250,000 remaining but in this instance, cell G5 is for 300,000 - so because the remainder of their available payment is less than the amount in cell G5, we should post the available payment amount in that field - 250000.

Therefore, if you add up all of column I for client "Apple1" it comes to 650,000 - the amount we have on our declaration - even though the total of their available position is 800,000.

I've included another client in the mix "Sauce2" who should show 200,000 and 0 respectively in cells I6 and I7.

Non-Cumulative Running Total
After about 3 hours of online research, and maybe an hour or so of experimenting with the IF command, my mind is blown and I, essentially, have given up!

I have a spreasheet with each column representing a month, then four more colums to represent quarterly values, and one other for a summary of the entire year.

I don't want a cumulative running total. For example, if I enter a value for January, that value should appear in the 1st quarter column, and yearly summary colum.

Now, if I enter in a February value, the 1st quarter column should display the February value. I need the 1st quarter column to "update" for each of the three months within the quarter. Likewise for the yearly column except, obviously, I need it to update for each of the 12 months.

I started toying with the IF function, with limited success, but there MUST be an easier way?

Cumulative Interest Formula
I have a person who was paid £1000 pension pa for ten years. I've found out that the pension should have been split 50/50 with half increasing by 5% pa. Thus in year 1 total pension would be £1000. In year 2 the total pension would be £1025 ((£500 x 1.05) plus £500)

I know that in year 10 the total pension should be £500 (non increasing) plus £814 (£500 x 1.05 to the power of ten). My problem is how do I work out a formula which calculates the total arrears due in year ten? I'm thinking the arrears due after the ten years is £314 but something is telling me it's a lot more.

Column A ------------------------Column B-------------------------Column C
A1=2.53 ------------------B1=A1-Max(A$1:A1)
A2=3.52 ------------------B2=A2-Max(A$1:A2)

A4=6.87 ------------------B4=A4-Max(A$1:A4)
A5=7.89 ------------------B5=A5-Max(A$1:A5)
A6=4.14 ------------------B6=A6-Max(A$1:A6)
A7=3.23 ------------------B7=A7-Max(A$1:A7)

Cumulative Sum In Loop Using Variables
I'm having difficulty with concatenation and the use of a string variable. On my attached spreadsheet I have a row called Must Fund Tasks. The binary variable in the cell is entered by a selection on a user form. If the value of the cell is "1" then that particular task must be funded. The code I developed forces solver to keep the binary value of 1 in that particular cell when looking for the optimal solution. This same row of binary variables is the row of values that I have solver change to find my optimal solution.

My problem is that I have another set of contraints based on mutually exclusive tasks. If there is a binary value of "1" in at least two of those cells then only one of the tasks may be funded and they are said to be mutually exclusive. In other words, if the user form indicated that tasks 1 and 5 were mutually exclusive then the binary values are Task1=1 and Task2=1 and the constraint would be Task1+Task2<=1. The code I've written looks for a value of 1 in the Mutually Exclusive row and if it finds one it adds the name of the corresponding "Must Fund" cell 4 rows above to a set called ExclusiveSet. ExclusiveSet is defined as a string and I'm having trouble with the concatenation, I keep geting a "+" out in front because of the intial loop when ExclusiveSet="" ( it returns "+$F$29+$H$29"). I'm also not sure if Range("CalcsStartcell").Offset(I + 15, 3).Formula = "=ExclusiveSet" is the appropriate way for me to return the value of the ExclusiveSet in the desired cell.

Dim p As Integer, CalcsStartcell As String, I As Integer, T As Integer

I = 5
CalcsStartcell = "C16"

Cumulative Total With Single Data Entry
I would like to be able to enter a number in a single column, and then Excel adds this number to a total column each time it is updated.

This is for entering via a PDA, so I need a simple entry method, ie to enter a figure, and then keep a running total every time a new figure is entered. This would only use the one column and overwrite the number each time, rather than adding up individual columns.

The attachment shows the items listed in column A, column C3 - C10 would be where I would like the number of items entered, and as I go round, I would just update the last figure. I would like the figures from C3 - C10 to be added to the Total column D3 - D10 for each item.

SIGMA (with respect from 1 upto n) ((1-x)^(1-n) * x)*a. Unfortunatly thats not drastically inteligable so i've attached a picture file that should explain it in more understandable terms. Now the problem im having is, sigma is a cummulative funtion, which in this example is relative to the variable n, firstly I don't know what formulas I would have to use in order to get a sigma/summination function, and secondly I am uncertain of how to link it to a variable range.

Conditional And Cumulative Subtraction That Starts Over Again When The Value In A Column Changes
I am attempting to perform a cumulative subtraction function that starts over again when the value in a column changes. I have a list that is sorted by a column for item number. The other two columns show the amount we have in stock and the amount being ordered against that stock. The order of rows IS relevant and cannot be changed.

Sample output is attached, with the "given" data outlined in a bold border. The only way I have figured out to do this is to nest a whole lot of IF statements in a formula, which is not very elegant or easy to do, and is limited by the number of IF statements that can be nested.
