The formula I am looking for would tell me what annual growth rate % I would need to achieve to make any investment reach a set target, for instance, what % of fixed annual growth would I need to make 200K grow to 750k in say 10 yrs or any time scale. I was given the formula below but Excel tells me it's wrong, I have tried putting 10 before ^ and the 10 after but to no avail, could some kind soul please put me straight.

From a chart in Excel I need to automatically calculate what the annual percentage growth rate is of a trend line. How to automate this in Excel? I've attached a sample so you can see what I'm trying to accomplish.

I have a model that makes projections based on annual growth rates. However, I need to evaluate the data based on monthly intervals. With an 8% return on an investment of $1,000,000 my ending balance at the end of the year should be $1,080,000 and in year 2 it would be $1,166,400 and so on. In order to evaluate the monthly data I need each month in year 1 to be based off $1,000,000, so it would be 8%/12=.006666% or $6,666.66 per month. The next year would be based off $1,000,000 + (6,666.66*12) = $1,080,000 and each month would be $7,200.

I am trying to calculate the compound annual growth and my starting point is a negative number. The example is that I have (273,000) for the YE 2003 and have Growth to the amount of +767,000 at YE 2006. The formula I have been using for other calculations where the starting point is positive is =POWER(J23/C23,1/O$1)-1. Where J23 = a positive amount and C23 = a positive number. This formula works fine, but when C23 = a negative number the formula does not work and the % does not make sense.

I am trying to calculate the effective annual interest rate earned on an investment and find the results are close but not really accurate. I suspect because I have not included the frequency of interest in my existing formula

r = n * nt root (A/P-1)

where; r = the effective interest rate n = the number of times interest is added per year t = the total number of years A = the current value P = the original value

The 2 problems I face are; 1. Confirming this formula would provide the correct answer (need maths expert here) & 2. How would "nt root" (as in sqr root, but using the product of the years and frequency) be used in Excel

I'm doing an exercise for school and I'm totally confused here. I have to:

With the original assumptions, goal seek to determine what the Annual Rate Increase would be for the total expenses to be $175,000 (answer = 20.77%). Here's what I have: through the process?

If I invested $350 per hectare into a project and at the end of 12 years that investment yielded me $150,000, what would my rate of return be over the life of the project?

I am trying to calculate APR (Annual Percentage Rate) for a mortgage loan that has a balloon feature. I have tried to the the RATE function but it only gives me the APR for a loan that is ammortized over 30 yrs and paid in 30 years. I need the APR for a loan that is ammortized for 30 years with a baloon in 5 years.

How can I get the median of a column that contains both hourly and annual rates? I would like to either multiply the hourly rate * 2080 or divide the annual rate by 2080 then get the median.

What I need is a worksheet which will generate fields from a set of variables (similar to a loan amortization schedule).

I don't know how to write the field code to include the annual percentage rate increase based on that additional input variable.

Input variables would be:

starting rate: (ex: 8ยข/kilowatt hour) starting date: (ex: July 2013) average kw hours/month: (ex: 1062.5 kw hours) annual rate increase: (ex: 3% *default 0%) years to display: (ex: 25 years, *shown in months in fields below) service months per year: (ex: 12 *default 12)

[code].....

So, data fields below the variables would be blank until these are entered.

Assume I would protect the sheet to avoid messing it up.

this would generate a chart showing rates over time from the fields below.

Also it would generate fields in a summary area to show the rate per year for future years.

Secondary, if there were a way to input actual usage and rates from specific months in the past, that would be useful but not part of this forecast model.

The goal of this model is to forecast electrical costs for residential power users compared to independent solar power generation to 25 years forward.

I want to make this because I am skeptical of the advertised savings that solar installers use to convince clients that their return on investment is so high. I believe their data to be greatly inflated projections.

Using this in comparison with other data such as inflation and wages will allow me to get a very good economic picture of the future of independent solar energy generation and its impact on the average home owner.

I have a table of yearly totals for the amount spent by x. I also have a growth rate for each month so for example in 2001 in jan the growth rate might have been 0.3% and feb 0.5% What I want to do is for each month based on the growth rate and the total produce a value for each month which sum to the total amount. It's also important to note that it restarts each year.

I have pv, fv, and period. there will be no payments made. I want the interest rate. I do it long hand it works. I do it using the rate function it doesn't! This also doesn't work with nper. Here is a simplified excel example. What am I doing wrong?

I have to pay 190000 $ in 180 months. I need a formula to establish an incresing rate for every month. I have a simulation on a paperwork, but I can't figure out the formula. On the paperwork the first rate in the first month is 875,21 $, the second one is 876.99 $, ..., and the last one in the last month is 1258,97 $.

I am trying to apply a multiplication factor that would vary depending on the sum of a particular cell. For example let's say the value of cell A5 is the SUM of A1:A4. Let's say the value is 255,000,000. my multiplication factor table looks like this:

So depending on the range the cell sum falls into I need the formula to apply the appropriate multiplication factor and divide by 1000. I'm trying to avoid manually inputting the (0.XX)/1000 based on the formula identifying which range the sum falls into and automatically applying the appropriate multiplication factor. In the example above the formula would be applied to the A6 cell and identify the A5 sum as falling into the 250,000,001 - 500,000,000 "range" and automatically apply the corresponding multiplication factor.

I would like to know the formula used in excel for rate function. Anybody knows and can share with me ? as i need to use that in other programmining language where these financial functions are not available.

In Table A, I have the rate table for an insurance product. I need to build a formula that will outomatically populate the data in Table B based on plan, start age and deductibles.

Example, if a person selects age 32 years, deductibles as 0 and plan 4, then his yearly premium will be $750/12=$62.50.This will automatically increase when his age falls into the next age bracket which is 36-45 years and his premium at age 36 to 45 will be $970/12=$80.83.

The Table B should populate all this information from the start age to age 80 when the policy stops. An example of table B is shown in the attachement for someone who starts at age 32, chooses deductibles as 0 and plan 4.

I'm trying to calculate a sales run-rate which will change on a day-to-day basis, to predict the end-of-month sales total.

The invoice values are in the data range H17:H74 (I don't want the final formula to add up the refunds in this field i.e. negative values)

The date field is in data range C17:C74.

So basically the formula will need to add all invoice totals (excluding refunds) and divide by the current number of days worked in the month (not duplicating days in the date field) and then multiply this by the average number of working days in a month (21). This should should give a predicted end of month sales total.

Am I just making things up that are impossible to do on excel?

I've had a bet with the other guy in the sales office because I said excel can do a lot more than he thinks. He's under the impression that excel begins and ends with what they teach you at school.

This is part of a marks to grade and rating table. I have a list of students and the marks they obtained in an exam. I need a formula to put the grade and rate beside each name e.g. John; 92 marks; A1; 4.

I want to calculate the subscription rate as follows:- Subscription is fixed at the minimum rate of Rs.200 and is incremented at the rate of Rs.10/- for every Rs.200/- thereafter?

I'm trying to set up a water bill calculator and am having troubles. We have a base rate that we charge for everything under 4000 gals. After that we have an increasing tiered rate. I'm trying to make a form so we can calculate bills accordingly. I don't know how to create an "IF" scenario.

example If "total usage" is greater than 4001 but less that 8000 multiply by $4.50 per 1000 gal If "total usage" is greater than 8001 but less that 12000 multiply by $4.75 per 1000 gal If "total usage" is greater than 12001 but less that 16000 multiply by $5.25 per 1000 gal If "total usage" is greater than 16001 but less that 20000 multiply by $5.50 per 1000 gal If "total usage" is greater than 20001 and over multiply by $5.75 per 1000 gal

Some years ago I came across a formulae to calculate Daily Interest on a Building Society Savings account in the UK. I have used this since but find my calculations never work out the same as my BS, although to my advantage! It is =B3*B4/360*DAYS360(B5,B6,TRUE) Where:

B3=Capital B4=Interest Rate B5=Starting Date B6=Finishing Date

For some reason the formulae uses 360/year and not 365/year. Using both still gives wrong answer.

As you can see in the attached sample file, I have different currencies, that all need to be converted to USD.

The exchange rate are displayed on sheet 2.

Currently the formula just picks all values without considering the exchange rate to USD. What I need to have, is a formula which, based on the currency, picks the correct exchange rate and outputs USD.

Apart from that, another thing the formula should consider is the value of G1 in sheet 2. With G1, the user can later define a specific type to be calculated by simply pressing down the button and chose either FG or RM.

The formula needs to:

Find out what currency the value is in and automatically convert it to USD via the exchange rate values. It also needs to consider the value of G1 in sheet 2 in order to filter out the other values. If, for example G1 is FG, then only FG should be taken into the process and therefore only values where type FG is marked.

I work with different currencies in my company, now I would to get an up to date state of the cask book. So I have $250, and 500EUR, now I want a formula (connecting to internet) that automatically multiplies the $250 with the current exchange rate, so I know how much I have in Euros in total.

I have a financial sensitivity sheet setup by year, where for example below each year is a cell you can change the exchange rate in and it effects the outcome of cash flow as these cells are linked to part of the finances. Then I have a "reset" button setup that is assigned to a macro. When you click the reset button all cells in the exchange rate row will be changed to a value that is entered in a "base case" cell. That way various years can be changed but also everything can be set back to the default or base case. My macro for that case is this:

I need a way to calculate commission for my sales reps. The commission is based off a calculated value in H39 of a sheet that I have developed.

They get 7.5% of the value when between $1 - $100,000, example: sales of $50,000 = $3,750 in commission.

If the value in H39 is > $100,000 but $250,000 but $500,000 they get 7.5% on the first $100,000 plus 5% on the amount between $100,001 and $250,000 plus 3% on the remainder between $250,001 and $500,000 plus 2% on any amount >$500,000 example: sales of $800,000 = $7,500 (7.5% on first $100,00) plus $7,500 (5% on the next $150,000) plus $7,500 (3% on the next $250,000) plus $6,000 (2% on the sales >$500,000 for a total of $28,500.
