# Calculating Percentage Based On Dynamic Cells

Dec 15, 2008

I need to calculate the percentage based on self populating score. however I want excel/formula to ignore any cells which has "NA" in it so that it calculates the percentage based only on the cells having Numbers.

Now these Cells which contain Numbers might or might not contain numbers based on the "IF" function which decides wether the cell will have numbers or will remain "blank" or have "NA". To understand better please have a look at the enclosed sample (that would explain my need better)

## Calculating Percentage Difference Between Cells

Dec 5, 2013

Formula "(Cell-Cell)/ABS(Cell)"

When calculating percentage difference do I always subtract the smaller number/cell from the larger number/cell, then divide by the smaller number/cell or vice versa? Maybe I am over thinking it, but it is confusing the heck out of me

I provided an example below to illustrate a spreadsheet I work on. The numbers go up and down. I want to know how I should go about setting up the formula. If I need to ensure the smaller number is always subtracted from the bigger number, it will require a lot of manual intervention on my part.

Row 3 is =(b2-b1)/ABS(b1)Row 4 is =(b2-b1)/ABS(b2)Row 5 is custom. I went through each cell and made sure the smaller number was being subtracted from the larger number, then divided by the smaller number

## Conditional Formatting Based On Percentage And Insert Cell Based On Percentage

Apr 3, 2013

I have a workbook that I've built for a project. I've attached a sample workbook. What I'm trying to do, for the entire sheet or workbook if possible, is turn any Cell with a percentage of 30% to 49% yellow and any cell with a percentage of 50% or more Red. I would also like to move the ID's of the variable cells, for example Id number 9922, to the cells beside the description of the rows, Affected would be an example, if the information contained in the same row as the ID meets with a set of variables.

For example I only want the ID's moved if they correspond with IDsub 1-25. One more thing, the people who will be using this spreadsheet will be copying data from a website when it is imported it does not insert the values as numbers. I would like to format the cells, in example workbook they would be any of the cells labeled ID IDsub Variable or Number, so that anything put in that cell will automatically be converted to a number.

I should also probably add that the formatting will be done on approximately 80 rows a sheet with 47 sheets.

## Calculating Amount Of Increase To Hit Percentage

Dec 9, 2011

I need a formula that will tell me how many minutes/hours are needed to hit a certain percentage.

For example, I need to do 60% of my time doing one thing (Team), and 40% of my time doing another (Individual). So, I need to know, if I've spent 5.5 hours doing Team, and 4 hours doing Individual, I need to know that I need to do .5 hours to hit the correct split.

I can't figure out what formula to use that will increase the current total to best figure out how many minutes I'll need to do either Team or Individual to hit the 60/40 split. It doesn't need to actually tell me 15 minutes, etc, but .25 would be fine (everything is done in .25 increments).

## Formula To Calculate Percentage Based On Number And Text In Cells

May 14, 2014

I have a form in work which acts as a tick sheet for tasks complete on a construction site. When a task is complete I copy & paste from a key of dates i.e. week ending 11.05.15, this allows me to see what week a task was complete.

Generally I only marked off tasks which were 100% complete but my manager wants me to enter the % of the task complete also, i.e. 80% in the box.

So my question is how can I have the formula assume that any box with a date & shading is 100% and any cell with a number i.e. 80 is only 80% complete. I need it to monitor around 150 cells and give me the overall % complete based on what i have discussed.

## Pivot Table - Calculating Percentage Of Two Columns?

May 14, 2014

why it works (but it obviously does). I crabbed off the sheet, modified it with my data and the percentages calculate reliably.

What I can't figure out is that in the Pct calculation in the table is the formula:

=GETPIVOTDATA("S_FCR",PT_1,"Center",[Center],"Date",MONTH([Date]))/GETPIVOTDATA("C_ID",PT_1,"Center",[Center],"Date",MONTH([Date]))^2

The formula itself makes perfect sense in terms of the numbers and filtering involved....but why does it actually work and what does the "^2" do?

## Overflow Error 6 Calculating Percentage Change

Jul 2, 2012

I was quite a few problems using worksheetfunction.ln() to calculate % change. I decided to write more basic code to try to accomplish this but I'm getting an overflow error.

Code:
DRows = WorksheetFunction.CountA(Sheets("INFO").Range("A:A"))
For r = 1 To (DRows - 1) '***** -1 is bc of ln property
percentchange = 0

newval1 = Worksheets("INFO").Cells(1 + r, 2).Value
old1 = Worksheets("INFO").Cells(1 + r, 2).Value

percentchange = (newval1 - old1) / old1
Worksheets("info").Cells(2 + r, 3).Value = percentchange
Next r

## Calculating Cells Used Based On Another Cells Data

Mar 6, 2008

I have a bit of an odd issue I need to solve. I use an Excel spreadsheet to track daily income for the store over a months' period. I have each day set to give me a rough estimate of profitability for that day. I also want to create a cell that tells me how much we've made so far, based on the number of business days so far in the current month. For example:

Day 1, \$1500, \$800 in expenses (monthly expenses averaged over the month, plus labor costs for the day), so a total of \$700 profit.

Day 2, \$1700, \$749 in expenses (same as before), so a total of \$951 profit.

The formula I'm using to calculate that isn't an issue, but I have the same formula for every single day, and each day has it's own cell with the estimated profitability for that particular day. In two other cells, I put the total number of business days in that month (in this case, 26), and in another cell I put the current number of business days we've had this month (in this case, 4), which is used partially to calculate the other cells. I want to use them to create another cell to contain the estimated profitability based solely on the number of business days out of the month we've had.

So E3 through E33 contain the individual days, I want to calculate - since we've only had 4 business days - what E3 through E7 would total. When I change it to 5 business days, i want it to calculate E3 through E8. So if we've had 4 business days, it only calculates the totals from the first 4 cells, if 5 business days, then the first 5 cells, etc, etc.

I can sort of picture it in my head, but I can't seem to find the necessary equation for it. It may require a macro, but I'd rather use a formula if possible. I'm not a big fan of macros.

## Calculating A Total, Based On Values In Other Cells

May 6, 2009

Using Excel 2002. Here's my problem.

Column A contains the month (as text)

Column C contains an employee name.

Column O contains a reason for absence.

Column K is the number of hours of absence.

The employee's name may appear several times in the worksheet. What I want to do is count the number of hours per type of absence.

E.g. If A=MAY and C=BOB and O=SICK then total hours from all instance of K = X.

This will be used on a seperate worksheet where the name C will be referenced from a validation list.

## Conditional Formatting - Colouring Percentage Of Multiple Cells Based On Date Range

Mar 12, 2014

I am trying to get a row of cells to highlight a percentage based on a date range

Below is an example of what my spreadsheet will look like, very simple for managers to read and understand but I am stuck on how i can get this to display the right way.

In the example i would need the Jan column to colour for a certain percent for 21 days and continue to feb for 26 days. Im not sure if this makes sense but this is what they are asking for. Colour bars to simple show the percent of days off each month.

Name Start Date End Date Jan Feb Mar

Dale 11/01/14 26/02/14 21 days 26 days

I have attached the spreadsheet for an example : Book1.xlsx‎

## Dynamically Build Formulas For Calculating A Running Percentage For A Row Of Data

Jul 3, 2007

I need to dynamically build a formula for calculating a running percentage for a row of data. The columns that are referenced by the formulas are static (f thru r), but the row number can change depending the number of rows of data. I have a set of data that can have one to many lines in it (the data is placed on the worksheet using vba code). After the data is placed, a total line is built using this

'Find row number for total row (2 rows down from last row of data)
endrow = Range("a35").End(xlDown).Row
sumrow = endrow + 2

'Set sum formula for the "e" column
Range("e" & sumrow).Formula = "=sum(e35:e" & endrow & ")"

'copy total formulas to columns f thru r...............................

## Calculating Percentage In Cell And Omitting Values When Specific Words Present

Apr 5, 2014

I have a daily report that gives a percentage based on what is typed into the "Supplier" and "Total Sales" columns but I'm having trouble writing the following formulas since my excel knowledge is relatively low.

1. Where a cell in the "Supplier" column says anything but "Den", "Burrowed" or "Studio Nyx" I need the "60%" and "40%" columns filled with the relevant formula (=B11*60% for example) and the "100%" column blank.

2. Additionally, if the cell contains "Den", "Burrowed" or "Studio Nyx" I need the "100%" column filled and the "60%" and "40%" blank.

## Dynamic Formula Based On Cells Value

Jan 26, 2012

I'm trying to get a =GETPIVOTDATA formula to update daily based upon todays date but am struggling.

The data feeds from a SQL DataMart and the formula is:

Code:
=GETPIVOTDATA("[Measures].[Case Completed -Invoiced - Count]",SBVSDATA!\$A\$6,"[Time].[Day]","[Time].[Day].&[25]","[Lender].[MI Grouping]","[Lender].[MI Grouping].&[Cambridge]")

This is the specific part of it i've been trying to play with, replace the [25] with a cell reference A1 for arguments sake that contains TODAY()-1

Code:
="[Time].[Day]","[Time].[Day].&[25]"]")

## VLookup Based On Dynamic Cells?

Jul 14, 2014

I have the following issue I have a fixed value in column N this is vlooked up into a cell in the same row after a specific cell value (category):

Toilet
Category
X
Brush
Category
X
Handle
Category
X
Door
Category
X
Computer
Category
X

The table above shows that the initial column is fixed i.e Toilet, Brush etc however the X's are dynamic but they will always be placed after the word Category. I think a VBA solution is needed but I can't figure out how to do it.

## Concatenate Cells Based On Dynamic Criteria

Jul 22, 2014

I am looking to write a formula that can concatenate cell A\$1\$ (absolute) & B1: B245 (dynamic)and then A\$2\$- B1:B245 and then so on.

So for example, I need to concatenate cell A\$1\$ & B1, and then A\$1\$ & B2, all the way up until B245, and then I need to restart the sequence with A2 and B1.

Formula to preform this concatenation, or will this need to be done with VBA?

## Select Dynamic Range Based On Non-empty Cells

Aug 7, 2009

I require code to identify the last row in column 'A' that contains data, and then to select every row up to that one, and each column up to 'H'. My data begins on row 3, and the rows with data varies from row 7 through 120. The columns with data is constant so there is no need to test in that direction.

## Naming Dynamic Range Of Cells Based On Heading

Apr 15, 2014

I need to name a dynamic range of cells. The only constant is the column - H, and the heading "MRC".

MRC column in a table represents an array formula. Unknown is the row where it is going to show up and the number of rows that this array formula will take. I need to name this range (active cells based on the array formula) but do not know what row does it start with and how many rows will it take.

It is not the last table in column H either but there are 2 empty rows before the next table.

Trying something like that...

=========================
Set aCell = Range("H:H").Find(What:="MRC", LookIn:=xlValues, _
LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False)
If Not aCell Is Nothing Then

aCell.Offset(1, 0).Select
========================================

That's how I select the first cell in the range. Not sure how to select the whole range and name it ..
ActiveCell.End(1xDown) ?

## Calculating Median / Mean And GeoMean Of Dynamic Range

Jul 10, 2012

I have a spreadsheet with Data in Columns A-H. Column B is an ID value that will repeat an unknown amount of times. For each Value in Column B I need to calculate the Median, Mean, and GeoMean for the corresponding range of "G_:H_"

Ex.
Column B
Column G
Column H

2
10
5

2
13
9

[code]....

I need the Median, Mean, and Geo Mean values to paste in Columns N-P for each different Station Index. My code only calculates for the first Station ID

Here is the code for what I have so far

Code:
Sub Median()
Dim r As Long
Dim stndx As String
Dim i As Long
Dim x As Integer
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual

[code]....

## Calculating Average In For Variable Last Row And Copying Across Another Dynamic Range

Apr 28, 2014

I'm trying to calculate the average for a range that begins with cell B15 and has various end points, depending on the day (since I'm pulling 2 actual years of data that strips weekends and holidays, as opposed to going back a set amount of days/years). Syntax for cell B4 to reflect the average of range B15 to LastRow? I tried several things and it didn't work. Rows 1-12 are being reserved for the summary calculations that will then be pulled into the final Dashboard.

## Percentage Of Cells That Start With X If Corresponding Cells Have Data

Mar 1, 2009

I need to calculate the percentage of cells in one column that have data in them compared to those that do not. This is easy enough to do by itself but here's where it gets tricky for me. I need this percentage calculated only when cells in a different column contain data.

Here's the specifics. All of the row and column references are exactly what I'm looking to have in my worksheet. If A5:A200 contain any value then I want to know the % of the cells in F5:F200 that have a value in them compared to the same number in F5:F200 that contain no value. I would like the answer to show up in B2.

Part of the issue is that cells A5:A200 already have a formula in them so I think that would count as a value. The one thing that might help is the fact that A5:A200 values that I'm looking for ALWAYS start with TN so that could be used as the search function. The reason why I need to base it on a value in A5:A200 is that the sheet is blank until I enter data in the rows. I can't have the blank rows below the last data that I've entered on the sheet count towards the percentage that I'm looking for.

Basically it's a sheet that I enter installations and service calls on. The information always has a TN# associated with it. Which through a formula is automatically populated in the same row in the A column. I track the installation or service call and when it's completed I enter a completion date in the F column in the same row.

I am trying to be able to keep track of the percentage of jobs completed (completion date entered in column F) compared to incomplete (cells in column F that have no completion date) but it has to only look at rows that actually have information entered in them which I think should be done by column A. column D5:D200 is where I enter the main information and there is no formula entered in the cells in column D so if it's easier to base it on that column then that's fine.

## Conditional Formatting Based On Percentage

Oct 5, 2013

I need a conditioning format formula. If cell A2 is less than 50% of cell A1, then highlight red.

## Define Percentage Based On Value Range?

Nov 27, 2013

I need to be able to work out a percentage based on a value range. ie.

Cell D2 to D5 will define the percentages (so I can adjust it and play)

D2 = 18%
D3 = 15%
D4 = 13%
D5 = 10%

I need to work out:

If the value in cell A10 is between 11 and 200 calculate on D2, if between 201 - 500 calculate on D3, if between 501 - 2000 calculate on D4 ect ect

Cells A10 to A100 will have some figures put in them.I then want to calculate the %value used based on weather the figure in one of the A10 to A100 cells falls in a range. The data being put into the cells in column A will vary from report to report.

I'm trying to automate the calculations :

## Calculate Number Based On Percentage

Aug 10, 2005

example 1:
This years sales are \$3700, a decrease of 11.6%. What would last years
sales be?

example 2:
This years sales are \$4500, an increase of 151%. What would last years
sales be?

## Calculate Percentage Based On The Number

Jul 17, 2008

I am working on a spreadsheet which has lots of data in it. I have a Column i.e. Checked out and on each cell entered an X Mark indicating that a device has been checked out.

Since this Checked Out Column goes all the way down to > 1000 cells. Is there a way for us to make a formula and calculate percentage based on the number of X's that are entered and tell as that out of 1000 cells, the X's are 65% and so the blank cells would have to be checked to complete the list?

## Range Formula Based On Percentage?

Jul 24, 2012

I have a set number in col A for example 100. Col B is variable value. And Col C is where I need the formula.

If for example Col B is within 5% of Col A return value of "G" in Col C.

If Col B is within 20% of Col A return value of "A" in Col C.

If Col B is under or over 20% ( example if Col B is 79 or 121 ) of Col A return value of "R" in Col C.

## Fill In Part Of Each Bar Based On Percentage?

Jan 9, 2013

I have a column chart in excel. I would like to fill in part of each bar based on a percentage.

## Calculate Percentage Based On Criteria

Jul 29, 2006

I have events in column 1,in my sheet there are about 800 events.

In col 2. each contestant has a label,blue(b),green(g) or red(r)

In column 3 I want to print the % of blue + green of the total for each event,

e.g first event in attached sheet would show 77.7% down to row 10 in col 3 etc.

## Ranking Based On Higest Percentage

Apr 16, 2007

I need a formula that looks at the percentage values of 3 cells and the in the next row ranks them 1st,2nd or 3rd. So for example cells A1, A2 and A3 have 30%, 20% and 10% respectively, so in cells B1, B2, and B3 I need to return 1st, 2nd, 3rd. But next week it could be that A1, A2, and A3's values are 20%, 30% and 10% respectively, and so I'd need cells B1, B2 and B3 to return 2, 1, 3, and so on. Be cool if the rows could automatically re-arrange so that whatever is ranked 1 is always on top, 2 in the middle and 3 at the bottom, but not that important. Be also cool if the 1st ranked row, chnaged colour or flashed or something, again not important though.

## Return Percentage Of Number Based On Its Value

## Percentage Calculations Based On Times

Jun 6, 2008

i've been viewing different formuals, and have to admit there is alot more to excel than I originally thought, and totally stumped as to what and how to go about my problem.

I have a problem, and it mainly stems from my employer not paying me correctly (and pretty much the other 1600 odd employees encounter the same issue too on a semi-regular basis).

To give you a run down, this is our complexed pay system

Mon-Fri, if you work up to 7h36m you get 100%, then 150% until 10h36 and then 200% after 10h36m working time
Sat, if you work, its 150% upto 7h36m and then 200% there after
Sun, double time all shift
But to throw in some complicated things, here are some more items that need to be considered.
If you work from one day into the next (say fri into sat, and sat into sun and sun into mon, then after midnight, it then goes to that days rates)
If you work your day off, say a weekday, your then paid the eqivelant of saturdays rates unless you were called in straight away which then is sundays rates
If you work your day off, say its a saturday or sunday, then its 200% for the whole shift.
And then public holidays, its 250% upto 7h36 and 300% thereafter

So as you can see, its pretty complicated, and my employer (a government employer) can't seem to get the right software to pay us correctly, nor can the poor employee sometimes work out if they've been paid correctly or not.

So, this is what I have so far:
columns: Day, Type (normal day or work day off or work day off immediate), On1, Sign Off1, Sign On2, Sign Off2, Sign On3, Sign Off3, Working Time, Paid hours
(for instance its my normal rostered monday, I start at 12pm, lunch at 5, return at 545 then finish at 915pm, which equates to 8h30m working time and 8h57m paid time) - the 3rd sign on and sign off is if we do extra work beyond our shift.

There are other things aswell like allowances, but thats for another day, and not as urgent as what i'm really looking for.

Now if anyone can understand what i've just written above, your doing pretty good (even some of the most experience employees still don't understan our pay system), and anyone able to produce a formula for what i'm looking for, i'd be exceptionally grateful, and probably the 1600 odd other employees too who seem to get shafted occassionally.
