I want to set up an Excel spread sheet where I can put my total number of sales appointments for the month and the percentage of those I closed. I've done this before, but for the life of me I can't remember the formula I used & I know it's a very simple one! I'm using Office 2007.

I am using excel 2007. I am trying to calculate the internal rate of return, without creating an array. I figured out that I can use the rate function to give me the same answer as the IRR function if I have one payment stream of say 36 months @ 1000. Where I am an running into trouble is if I have second payment stream of 6 months extension of 1500. Rate # pay 36 amt 75 PV = 5000 FV 500 , How to handle the the last 6 months ?

This is the situation

asset costs is 5000 monthly lease is 75 for 36 months extension for 6 months is 125 end of lease buyout is 500

what is the internal rate of return without creating an array.

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.

I need to calculate a royalty rate due which is based upon a Unit Price * Unit Sales. The royalty rate due changes at certain levels of sales. I've attached sheet to hopefully make clear.

I have a macro that opens all workbooks from one directory and runs a macro for each workbook to clean up the data. I cannot figure out how to take all those open workbooks and save them to another directory and close the workbook. Also, I do not want the macro workbook (xlsm) to save. I only want it to close. I am working in 2007 Excel.

Using Microsoft Excel 2007 and all of a sudden, my spreadsheets are not automatically calculating the formulas. It does not matter if I have other workbooks open or not. I still get the problem. It does not happen 100% of the time to make it even more complicated.

- Calulation set to auto in Excel Options.

- No VBA functions being used. I can the worksheet summing 1 + 1 and get the error periodically. It does not have to do with the spreadsheet being too complicated.

- Even if I can hit Ctrl-Alt-F9 to force the formulas to calculate, it won't work.

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'm creating an engineering report and were trying to capture the number of man hrs we are committing to breakdowns the section I'm interested is shown below:-

CraftJob Start TimeJob Finish Time PL RD02.45 03.15

There are two personnel (shown as initials) in the craft cell with the start and finish times of the job. Can I determine the number of personnel by counting the sets of initials i.e. PL + RD =2 then multiply that number by the time worked in this case 30mins (this will vary) so time committed would be 2*30=60mins.

i have an excel 2007 spreadsheet where i keep baseball stats. On the pitching side have a column for the pitchers innings pitch. The data kooks like this:

1.0 1.1 1.2

where the numbers after decimal points represents thirds of an inning. In my spreadsheet i have 4 workheets of different divisions that have a breakdown of each team the team i am keeping stats for plays.

i manually enter the innings pitched in the totals for the season as i cannot figure out how to add these numbers from the individual worksheets to calculate the right number. once the number after the decimal point is greater than two than another full inning is recorded not a continuation of the number.

Example pitcher has already pitched 2.2 innings and he pitches 1.2 innings today making a total of 3.4 which should really be 3.1 one last one pitcher has pitched .2 innings and pitches .1 today making a total of .3 innings pitched but it should be 1.0 innings pitched. proper formula to sum the correct totals in the totals worksheet. i am at a loss and ihave been working on this problem for a little while with no luck.

I'm trying to convert the values entered by users into specific cells into a specific percentage. When I use this macro in Excel 2010, I can enter the value to be calculated directly into the cell and the macro runs automatically. When I open the file in Excel 2007, the macro does not calculate properly unless the value to be calculated is entered into the formula bar.

For example, in Excel 2007, if I enter '30' in cell E11, it should come out as '20%'. Instead it comes out as '0.2%' unless I enter '30' into the formula bar, which then calculates properly. It is far more efficient to be able to enter the value directly into the cell.

I am trying (and failing miserably) to create a fomula to 'score' my pickers in a warehouse environment.

The basic variables are;

1) Units (Total quantity of units on picklist) 2) Lines (Number of different products on picklist) 3) Time (Total time to complete pick)

To give an example, if Units = 8, Lines = 1 and Time = 00:01, I want 'Score' to = 100. (Based on benchmark, rounded down to lowest common denominators)

The added complication I face is the relationship between Lines and Units; it would take someone longer to pick 1 unit from 10 lines than 10 units from 1 line.

I keep coming across bonds having different annual interest rates and different compounding frequencies (quarterly, half yearly and yearly).

I know there is a YIELD function, but it requires so many inputs. I was wondering whether we can calculate cumulative yields just from annual interest rates, compounding frequency and investment duration?

My partner and I are selling products. He gets 5% of the sales price, then I get the rest. But I want to make at least $2 on every sale. So, let's say the item cost us $50. If he wants 5% off the top, and I want at least $2, how do we calculate what to sell it for?

I tried the following, but it didn't work: $50 (cost) + $2 (my profit) + 5% (partner's profit) ------ $54.60 (sales price)

It doesn't work because I end up with $1.87. $54.60 (sales price) - 5% (partner's profit) - 50 (cost) ------ $1.87 (my profit)

I've tried other things, but I always end up under $2. Is it possible to calculate this? or do I need to have a percentage for myself? If Excel can't do it, do you know of any calculators out there than can?

In my spreadsheet, I have data for each sale in each row. Column C is the buy price, and column D is the sell price. I need column C to be subtracted from column D to get the profit into column E so that I can AutoSUM any cells in column E for total profit over any time period. The problem I'm having is that in columns C and D, I have either a dollar sign in front, or the letter m following without a space (ie $45.00 or 150m). Many cells in column C also contain another word following the buy price, and many cells in column D have a date following the sell price (ie $32.00 12/11 or 42m buyout).

Examples of how my spreadsheet looks: A1: 12/13/12 B1: Item #1 C1: 100m D1: 152m A2: 12/14/12 B2: Item #2 C2: $20.00 D2: $35.00 A3: 12/15/12 B3: Item #3 C3: 90m bid D3: 120m 12/16

So looking at my example above, I would need cell E1 to automatically show "52m", cell E2 "$15.00", and cell E3 "30m"

How I can get a formula for all of column E that will give me my profit for both $ and "m" for each item (row). I have tried the SUM function but just keep getting the #VALUE! error, it does not ignore the text like many people say it should.

I cannot solve with Excel 2010 and I have searched all over for the answer.

I have sales data that is approximately daily and would like to count the monthly data and summarize it as an average for the month in a separate column.

I'm trying to build a formula that allows me to see which item is the highest trending over a period of time I input.

I figured out the way how to select data between specific Start and End dates, but don't know how to interpret "trending" in a formula.

I was thinking maybe highest jump from beginning to end of interval, but what if it's a new item that was launched halfway through the interval and does poorly throughout, that would still be "trending" under that rationale....

I have sales numbers which is in the form of a running total dollar amount and I would like to keep track of the average increase in dollars.

So basiclly if the Jan total is $100 in column a, the Feb total is $150 in column b, and the March total is $200 in column c. I would like a formula that will tell me that the average increase in dollars is $50.

It’s been working perfectly up until around an hour ago. However, now when I close Excel, I get compile errors.

These compile errors seem to be because Excel is trying to access controls in the workbook after it has closed. Since the workbook is closed, VBA can no longer ‘see’ the controls, and therefore it thows up errors.

I’m also getting a similar error on a Worksheets("DataExplorer").unprotect line, which seems to be because the worksheet isn’t there after closing.

These errors only occur when I close the whole excel application using the big cross in the top right. If I just close the workbook (using the smaller cross just below the big cross in the top right of excel), it doesn’t throw up these errors.

Just to clarify: all of the code runs perfectly when Excel is open. The errors are being thrown up for lines of code which run without problem until Excel is closed.

I've just suceeded writing some code that collects data from one spreadsheet and places them in another sheet from where it is transferred to an Access 2007 table. It all works fine apart from one little thing: I can't find a way to close down the empty Access window after the data have been transferred.

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.

I have an excel sheet which has 70 sheets in it...All of them are numbered but not in a sequential manner (eg : 210,211,201,202,215 etc..).The numbering is nothing but the sales order number....

All the sheets have same data (i.e Column A contains Product Sold, Column B contains Sale Value)...The thing is i want to consolidate all the data in sales order number wise. i.e.

I am trying to determine the top contributors to 50% of sales based on cumulative percent of sales (see attached file). I can determine if percent of sales is less than 50%, but I need to include the person that pushes the group of top performers over the 50% mark.

I have a sales level that I need to track...My rolling 12 months' sales must be $85,000 and my currently monthly sales must be $7,000. I have a sheet that tracks the $85,000 and tells me what I need to achieve that, but I haven't figured out how to include the $7,000 monthly minimum....

The chart below is what I have. So for example, this month it's telling me I only need to sell another 3016.46 to hit the $85,000 rolling 12, but I actually need to hit $4821.79 to meet the $7k minimum.

Actual Rolling 12 Goal Sep 2012 5,367.24 73,663.30 Oct 2012 5,649.93 69,496.28 Nov 2012 14,163.38 73,451.30 [code]....

I have daily basis monthly sales. Now I want to summarize into monthly gross. Pls look attached file. I am looking for a formula to summarize January daily sales from date 1st to 31 st as of just January and and sum of each day gross.

I have created a chart on excel for us to track daily sales but also to figure sales tax so we know what to send the IRS each month. We have been figuring the sales tax ourselves and filling in the chart on excel but I would like to create a formula that automatically does it for me based on total sales.

I have been trying to work on this excel worksheet for a while. I have give the charge column (tab:data) and the rate chart (matrix type with weight and zone). I want to find the formula that would tell me if the charge is in the rate chart (I know it would use countif), and tell me what the zone and the weight associate with it. Using

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 am fairly new to VBA / Excel programming. I have been trying to write a report out of excel from our company DB (SQL2005). The database is run by our frontend accounting application - so i cant mess with it at all, must only run queries.

I need to pull the last 24 months of stock sales data(by stock code or category) out of our DB into excel by counting transactions on Customer Invoices / credits. Into a table as follows.. Stock Code--Month1-Month2-Month3 ABC1----------43------33------19 ABC2-----------2------10------25 I have managed to make a script that fullfills this need but it takes about 15 minutes to run(Due to having to loop many times per item/ per month).... I was just wondering if anyone had any tips / advice on different ways to do this..??? Ive had a quick look at Pivottables but havent gone very far in, maybe they are the answer, but this amateur does not know.
