# Calculating Logistics Cost Tool

May 21, 2014

I am a Supply Chain intern at a company for the summer. One project I have been given is to create a tool in excel that allows our purchasing people to type in certain inputs (origin, destination, etc.) to calculate the total cost of shipping an item from a supplier in anywhere from china, to somewhere locally. I am gathering quotes for shipping via ocean and truck. How can I get where I enter in one location, say shanghai, china, shipping to another location, say Norfolk, VA, and get the total mileage difference to show?

## Calculating Cost Per Second

Oct 25, 2007

I'm trying to make a worksheet where I can calculate the cost of a mobile postpaid subscription. It is charged per minute and the cost differs depending on which of the 2 available networks the customer is calling to. The first 20 minutes are free, not depending on network.

Edit:
Charges to network A is 1,79,- per minute after the first 20 minutes are spent.
Charges to network B is 2,29,- per minute after the first 20 minutes are spent.

To sum up:
1. The customer makes a call.
2. If there there are available free minutes, these should be spent first.
3. The customer is charged per minute, depending on network called.

## Calculating Cost

Apr 17, 2009

Problem - billing spreadsheet for prisoner fee.

1 - 8 hrs = \$55
9 - 24 hrs = \$55 + \$65 or \$120
Anything over 24 hrs - \$65 for each additional (24 hrs) (\$185)

So if you were locked up for 6 hrs it is \$55. If you were locked up for 18 hrs it is \$120. If you were locked up for 28 hrs it is \$185. And if you were locked up for 49 hrs it is \$250. Cell F5 contains number of hours locked up - I would like cell I5 to calculate the cost of the stay. I am proud of myself for figuring out the date and time subtraction - but this part has me stumped.

## Calculating Cost Per Month?

May 8, 2014

I am trying to create vba macro that allows me to calculate cost per month.

I have created a basic table with two columns

Cost
Month

200
Jan

300
March

150
Jan

470
April

150
March

I have another sheet , that has two columns

Month - Cost
Jan
Feb
March
April

I am trying to sum up the value on sheet1 and input into sheet2 on the allocated month.

So far logic , that I have came up with is.

I create a For loop statement that looks column and sort each month into an array.

Than the second loop will use the array to find the cost with the allocated array value to sum it.

## Calculating Cost Based On Several Factors

Jan 7, 2009

i. I currently have a spreadsheet which is used to forecast resource cost for a project. The forecasted cost is calculated on a few factors - rate, allocation, contract start and end date, and expected days worked per month. One of the mods actually helped me out with this a few weeks ago.

I now have been told that there is a possibility that certain resource costs may change in the new year and that will need to be reflected in the sheet whilst keeping the historic information.

For example - XXX has a rate of £200 p/d, allocation is 1, working 18.83 days p/m and is working from 01/01/09 to 01/06/09. The current formula will work out his cost per month until contract end. Now say his rate will be changed to £150 p/d from the 01/03 and all other info remains the same, I need the sheet to calculate his revised cost from 01/03 onwards and not change the calculation previous to that month.

Now Ive actually managed to figure that part out myself by adding in two columns (over-ride rate and over-ride date) using a nested IF statement. The only problem is that if the new rate starts mid month then it will still calcuate the original amount for the full month and the revised amount from the next month.

Edit - Also, could someone advise as to how do I remove my old attachments as I have almost used up my allocation.

## Calculating Total From Number Of Minutes And Cost P/m

Aug 6, 2009

I need to calculate the total cost of outbound calls based on the total duration of outbound calls multiplied by cost per minute. For example, in a given month, the total duration of outbound calls is 261:16:34 being 216 hours, 16 minutes and 34 seconds. I have this figure in cell A1 with the format [h]:mm:ss. I then convert this to minutes in cell B1 by saying B1=A1, but having the format [m], which gives me 15676. In cell C1, I have the cost per minte value of £0.026. But when I apply the formula D1=B1*C1, I get £0.283, when 15676*£0.026 should in fact be £407.58.

## Calculating Manhours/labor Cost In 2003

Aug 12, 2009

I am having trouble trying to calculate cost for a specific task. I know this is something simple and I am going to kick myself when it gets solved, but I have total brain lock right now! Here is the example of what I am trying to do.

A B C D E F
# of people start finish time man hours labor cost
3 1:35 2:05 :30 1.5 \$15.00

I am entering the values in A, B and C, with B & C formatted as TIME. D is calculated by =(C3-B3), but I am lost trying to calculate E and F.

## Calculating Cost Dependant On Month And Category

May 11, 2006

I have a sheet with 3 columns. First one is a date in the format dd/mm/yy, second is category type (numerical 1-40) and then the final column is cost in the format 0.00. These columns will need to run from A2:A65536, B2:B65536 & C2:C65536 to cover all later additions. I need to work out a cost total for each of the categories in each month.

## Minimize Cost By Calculating Best Binomial Distribution

Apr 8, 2008

I'm working on a problem that calculates data using a binomial distribution. The data derived from the binomial distribution is then used to calculate a cost. I would like to minimize cost by changing the number of " reservations". Can excel solver do this or is it too complicated? I have attached the file with what I'm working on. (Changing E1 to minimize E2 while Cells A9:A102 are calculating a binomial distribution)

## Iteration Inconsistency: Allow For A Cost Being Added To Loan Amount Where The Cost Is Based On The Total Loan Amount

Mar 15, 2007

In a financial environment we have a calculator which uses iteration to allow for a cost being added to loan amount where the cost is based on the total loan amount. Iteration is set to 100 iterations with max change .001

On one PC the first time the calculator is opened it gives a particular (incorrect) result. If the input cells are cleared and the data re-entered, it gives the correct result. This only happens on one particular PC. Is there some other setting , other than the iteration setting, that would cause this?

## Tool Bar Menu

Feb 18, 2008

Within the 'tools' menu option you have 'Macros'. On a standard tool bar you have the option to record a new macro, edit......, however sometime last week I created a custom button and placed icons on my tool bars that allowed me to click them to record new or run custom made macros. After a clicking the 'custom macro' buttons a few times by mistake, I decided to remove the custom buttons in the hope of returning the macro options (within the 'Tools' menu option) back to normal. However this has not been the case. Now I have no option to record a new macro the the 'tools' menu system.....it has disappeard. Please could someone tell me how I can reset the 'Tools' menu system back to normal?

## Translation Tool

Dec 17, 2006

I am trying to create a simple translation tool for my product catalog, which is in Japanese, to English.

I have the Japanese and the English terms listed in a file (say, File A) in Col A and Col B which will keep increasing every week.

I want to create a macro which goes thru this list and replaces ALL the Japanese terms to English in "ALL THE SHEETS OF THE PRODUCT CATALOG" (say, File B) .

I have created a button in File A so that when I press this button, I browse my computer, select the file (product catalog) to be translated, replace all the Japanese terms to English terms in ALL THE SHEETS and saves it under a different filename.

## Time Tool New

May 31, 2009

I have an application that I attached to this post, which I have been working on, for the last four or months, in my free time on the weekends and the last part I need some help with. The doc has been updated with new macros and a chart.

I would like help with a macro that I can activate and cause a message box to appear when I open the excel doc. I would like also to be able to activate the message box and its associated macros after the document has been opened. If you look on Sheet1 of the attachment you’ll get an idea of where I am trying to go with the message box. I would like it to have

- Message “The Current Time is (Macro puts current computer time here)”
- Question “How much time do you have?” then beneath this question
- Blank field labeled Hour to give answer
- Blank field labeled Minute to give answer

Depending on the current time on the computer as well as the hour and minute entered, a macro with a matching title (each macro includes a time, hour, and minute in its Sub name) a code in VBA will be selected that fits that criterion. For example, let’s say it is 5:30am and I entered 1 hr and 15 min in the empty fields of the message box. As a result the macro named “Sub Hour1Min15time530am” will be activated. Also due to the fact that the macros I have are in 15 min intervals the code would need to round to the nearest time, so if it was 5:33am when I ran the code the macro would default to 5:30am whereas if it was 5:39am when I ran the code the macro would default to 5:45am. You’ll see time controls at the bottom of the application. If I can get the code I am looking for those are going to be removed.

## Program Search Tool

Jun 3, 2009

I am making a Program search tool for my company. I would like the operator to type a part number into a cell. If the part number is valid (from a master list on a different sheet), then I would like to pull the information from the master list and populate a few cells on the search worksheet.

Example:

An operator types: "W3303-01" in a cell and clicks a button. The macro would populate cells on that worksheet with information from another worksheet that pertains to "W3303-01"

## Time Management Tool

May 2, 2009

I have 143 macros, but I put 8 of them here b/c the post would not go through with all of them. I couldn't fit all of them on an attachment either b/c the file size was too big. However, I have this goal I have been working on for the last three months on the weekends and the last part.

I would like help with a macro that I can add onto the ones I have. I would like the macro to activate and cause a message box to appear when I open the excel doc. I would like also to be able to activate the message box and its associated macros after the document has been opened.

I would like the message box to have
- Message “The Current Time is (Macro puts current computer time here)”
- Question “How much time do you have?” then beneath this question
- Blank field labeled Hour to give answer
- Blank field labeled Minute to give answer

Depending on the current time on the computer as well as the hour and minute entered, a macro with a matching title from the list below will be selected that fits that criterion. For example, let’s say it is 5:30am and I entered 1 hr and 15 min in the empty fields of the message box. As a result the macro named “Sub Hour1Min15time530am” will be activated. Also due to the fact that the macros I have are in 15 min intervals the code would need to round to the nearest time, so if it was 5:33am when I ran the code the macro would default to 5:30am whereas if it was 5:39am when I ran the code the macro would default to 5:45am.

## Numeric Up Down Tool On Userform

May 18, 2009

Do we have NumericUpDown Tool Control in MS Excel 2003 that can be employed on a userform. The one similar to the numericupdown of VB.NET. I want to restrict user to input only numerals. Though I can use IsNumeric Validation in Textbox_Change event but still I was curious to know if there is any other in-built function in MS Excel.

## Count How Many Unique Users Are Using Tool?

Jan 21, 2014

I have 2 sheets, one with users and a tool they have been using, and one with a list of unique users, I would like to count how many unique users are using a tool. The sheets are set up like so,

Sheet 1
User Tool (number of uses)
abcdefg 1
hijklmn 5
1234567 1
1234567, abcdefg, opqurst 2
wxyz123 0

Sheet 2 Have they used the tool

abcdefg
hijklmn
1234567
wxyz123
opqurst

So yes, I am trying to count whether or not the unique users have used the tool, this is a simplifed version as my data set runs into the thousands. I was using the countifs function, but that doesnt count properly if theres more than one user in the group.

May 14, 2009

I've been look for an excel tool to draw venn diagrams with the 'circle' size in propartion to the set (population) sizes and the correct degree of intersect.

## How To Use Camera Icon Tool Using Macro

Jul 9, 2012

How to use the Camera Icon Tool using a Macro?

I want to copy the First Row which is the Column heading of one Sheet to a different Sheet
Example : From Col A till Col G First Row is to be copied as an Image. Normally I do it using the Camera Icon, however when I tried recording a Macro for the same it did not work..

So how do I that if I provide the Start Column and End Column Alphabet as a Variable is that possible.. I want this Image to not remain Volatile which is the case using the Camera Tool..

So, how do i get the picture of only the first row or any row and store it is an Image in a different sheet as static picture so that even when the sheet is moved to a different location it does not make a difference to the Image.

## Next Order Number Tool In Excel?

Aug 16, 2013

I have an upholstery business and I have created a workbook containing multiple sheets (proposal, invoice, sales order log, etc.. ) Following, I have saved it in Template format, which I open and save by order number somewhere else. The issue is, I don't know how to track what the last order number I used was....

Is there anything I can work using excel that will allow me to make that easier without having to go open a window and looking at the last order number after arranging the workbooks by name inside a folder?

## Date Change/format Tool

Aug 17, 2007

way the date are shown can be changed by the date format tool, provided the date was entered the correct way. I think we are missing each other. I think the way the date was entered (17.08.07) and converted to (17/08/07) was good. At first it was in text so one wouldnt have known whether it will be taken as yymmdd, ddmmyy, mmddyy etc. well it end up like as 17(yy), 08(mm), 07(dd) instead as 17(dd), 08(mm) and 07(yy). My Q now is is there a way (formula) to swap these orders around...?

## Race Car Driver Comparision Tool

Jul 30, 2006

1: two colums of data for each car (lap distance covered and speed). Now each driver is going to decide to brake at different points.
2: i have coner data (eg corner 1 is at 150meters to 200 meters, corner 2 is at etc)
3. I am trying to create something that will do the following.

determine the lap distance at which the driver is braking (the point where speed decreases). I would like to do this for each corner and each driver. I am struggling to find a way of determining how to read the "lap distance" value when the corresponding "speed" value stops increasing and actually starts to decrease. This is the point at which the driver is braking
