Feb 14, 2007

See attachment. In this example, in Column D I want to calculate the percent difference between the numbers in the last 2 columns (Column B and Column C). BUT I want a formula that will automatically update if I were to insert a new column between Column C and Column D. So as a result, new numbers would go in Column D and the percent difference would now be in Column E.

## Calculate The Average Difference Between Columns

May 4, 2009

I am trying to determine the average reduction amount of appraised property values. I have two columns in my spreadsheet. Column H has appraised value of property. Column I has the accepted value of the property. Sometimes the accepted value is the same as the appraised value, sometimes it is reduced, and sometimes it is rejected.

I want to be able to find the average reduction amount when the accepted value is less than the appraised value and is not rejected.

Column H always shows a numerical value (i.e. \$250,000), but Column I may have a numerical value or show "rejected".

So I am running in to a large brick wall! I have a single pivot tablet with a column for items received and then a column for items shipped. I would like to create a calculated field in the pivot table that will subtract the items received from the items shipped columns. I have attempted to add the calculated field using the tool bar but it keeps giving me "0" for every item on the pivot table when there are obvious differences.

## Formula To Calculate The Difference Of Time Between Cells

Feb 17, 2008

I'm working in excel2007:

I want to write a generic formula to calculate the difference of time between cells, the first being a real data point, such as

6/22/2007 8:53

minus a generic constant term using the same date and a given time, 8:30.

So, what I need is something like this:

6/22/2007 8:53 – (same mm/dd/yy @ 8:30)
6/22/2007 12:29 – (same mm/dd/yy @ 8:30)

## Conditional Formula: Calculate The Difference In A Date Between Two Dates

Jan 28, 2009

I'm trying to make a formula to calculate the difference in a date between two dates. For exaple, in my business we have a due day for something. So the due date could be Feb 10, we need to know if it was done on time, late, or early. So I've gotten it to display late by doing this: =IF(B2>A2, "Late", (A2-B2)) But then I can't figure out how to incorporate this: =IF(B2=A2, "On Time") or =IF(B2<A2, "Early").

I would like to displaly this all in one cell. So if the due date is Feb 10 and it's turned in Feb 8 it's early, turned in Feb 10 it says on time, turned in Feb 11 it's late. I also tried this but it didn't work: =OR(IF(B2>A2,"Late")*IF(B2=A2,"On Time")*IF(B2<A2,"Early"))

## Calculate Probabilities In Percent

Dec 8, 2008

I have had a fascination with the lottery, purely hobby, and have had lots of fun over the years working different things out. The last 6 months though I have become fascinated with roulette & thought it would be a fun project to work out all sorts based around that, plus I don't have to wait for lotto results I can get instant numbers & results, however my latest attempts are hitting a brick wall!

I am trying to work out (in percentages) the increasing & decreasing % of 3, 11, 12, 22, possible outcomes

I have worked out the 2 possible outcomes initially for odd/even as follows

At the start they both have a 48.65% chance of hitting, then whatever is hit first the percentages are 76.33% and 23.67%. If you have 2 in a row of odd/even then the percentages are 88.49% & 11.51%, 3 in a row would give you 94.40% & 5.60% etc.

I have used the following formula for this (BM5 is where the totalhits for even are calc'd) ...

## Calculate The Percent Of People Within Age Range

Aug 14, 2006

In the demographics sheet, I have ages listed from row F2 to F31 with different ages. I would like to get assistance with a formula that calculates the percentage of people within these age ranges:

21-25
26-30
31-35
36-40
41-50
51-59
60+

It should be separate formulas. I'm sure if I'm given the first and last ones that I could do the others myself. Also, if I needed to know the percent of males and females, would i use the same formula?

## Calculate Percent Of In Pivot Table

Sep 9, 2006

looking for a way to run some pivot tables on a large data table. Would like the result to show some different data extraction from the same field / column. The table is customer survey results for my employees, and the fields in question can have values from 1-5. I would like to finish the pivot table with all of these fields:

Row: Name (ok, that part is easy)

Data fields:
% of entries (column 2) that are 5
% of entries (column 2) that are 4 or 5
% of entries (column 2) that are 1 or 2
# of entries (column 2)
% of entries (column 3) that are 5
% of entries (column 3) that are 4 or 5
% of entries (column 3) that are 1 or 2
# of entries (column 3)

I'm hoping this is something I can do with calculated fields, but haven't been able to figure it out. So far all I have is a 'Count' function in the pivot wizard for the # of entries, but I'm not getting the % of entries at all. Column A = Name, Column B = 1st metric, Column C = 2nd metric. Fairly simple layout, but I have a small sample file I can attach if that's not explanatory enough.

## Calculate Amount Of Days Paid In Advance And Apply Percent Discount

Jul 13, 2009

Part of the assesment task is to write a formula, to work out how many days in advance the customer paid, and then apply the needed discount. I have tried several basica variations to the formula, and keep getting the same Err message.
give point me in the right direction to how i can calculate amount of days paid in advance and apply a % discount?

attached is the start of the assesment question.

You should create and enter formulas to calculate the No. of Days paid in Advance, the Discount and the Course Fee Paid.

Use a VLOOKUP function in your template to determine the discount rate to be used for the calculation of the Discount. Your template should include a separate discount table containing the following information about the discount received:
• If students pay the course fee less than 7 days prior to the course commencing then they receive no discount.
• If students pay the course fee 7 to 13 days prior to the course commencing then they receive a discount of 5%.
• If students pay the course fee 14 to 20 days prior to the course commencing then they receive a discount of 8%.
• If students pay the course fee 21 days or more prior to the course commencing then they receive a discount of 10%.

## Excel Formula To Calculate Difference In Times But Only Between Specific Times

Apr 8, 2014

I'm looking for a formula that will calculate the difference in times between specific times while working with a 24 hr clock. Please see details below:

E3 provides the start time of 4:00
H3 provides an end time of 15:30

If an employee works betwen the hours of 0:00 (midnight) to 5:59, this is considered DIFF hours and is therefore the number I am seaking. So for the data noted above, the total DIFF hours worked is 2 hours.

## Percent Formula

Apr 30, 2007

I need a formula to show percent value in a certain way in cell D1
formula is
C1 = B1-A1

but I am stuck to get the percent syntax in formula bar right.
D1 = PERCENT OF B1-A1

Example1
A1 B1 C1 D1
52.5-2.50-50 % ( RED/NEGATIVE PERCENT)
Example2
A1 B1 C1 D1
2.552.5050% ( BLACK/POSITIVE PERCENT)

Example3
1037.00-70% ( RED/NEGATIVE PERCENT)

3107.00 70% ( BLACK/POSITIVE PERCENT)

Somehow I seem to think I need to use the Value of C1
( which is required btw) to get a percent in D1, but not sure how it
would go in one complete formula in D1

## No Calculation Flag, And Percent Formula

Nov 13, 2009

1. In neighborhoods that have zero units in a given price range I have it to display "-" , because this unit is not actually zero, the data is not available. Therefore a #VALUE! is displayed for the percent because it cannot calculate the "-". How do I get excel to glance over "-" and flag it for no calculation?

2. For the percentages I am having to manually do them row by row. I would like to set it up in a manner that allows me to copy the formula down by column and across by row correctly.

For instance in the percent for Mira Lagos I have =B4/N3 where b4 is the units for mira lagos and n3 is the total. I can drag that formula across by rowto get all the correct percentages for mira lagos price ranges only, but I cannot copy this formula down by column to any of the other neighborhoods. In otherwords I have to do a new formula for each subdivision.
e.g.

Grand Peninsula=B5/N3
...etc

Again I would like to make it so I can copy the formula across by row and down by column so excel will automatically compute it.

## Percent Change - Different Formula Results

Nov 21, 2012

In Excel, what is the reason for different results using the two formulas below?

Example:
Cell L6: 1413.5
Cell M6: 1312

Using the formulas below, the format of the cell is Percentage, one decimal place but I get different results

Formula 1: =-(1-L6/M6) The result is 7.7% change

Formula 2: =SUM(L6-M6)/L6 The result is 7.2% change

What is the difference in the formulas?

C1 = 03-Apr-2009
D1 = Blank
E1 = 05-Apr-2009
F1 = 06-Apr-2009

What is the best suitable formula to find "First blank cell", then "date difference" between today and its previous cell's (i.e today minus "C1" in this case).

## Calculate Difference In Dates

Jul 27, 2009

I need to calculate the amount of time between two dates, and show it in the number of hours and minutes. My dates are formatted to show the time in Zulu time. So 1406 = 2:06PM.

Here is what I have:

A1 = 6/4/08 1406Z
B1 = 6/5/08 0402Z

For this example, the formula should return a result of 13 hours and 58 minutes. With the result, there is no need to desingate Zulu time with a 'Z'. But I need the result in a format that will allow me to calculate an average for all my data.

## Calculate Difference To Lowest

May 9, 2009

I'm looking for a macro or formula that can calculate the difference to the lowest of col C based on option in colB. See attached. I complete what it should look like in F. Basically, this can be done by sorting the data by colB and using this formual for every group. =C2-MIN(\$C\$2:\$C\$4). This is not ideal because I have many of these to do and you have to adjust the min range for every group. Plus group sizes will vary.

There has to be a better way. Ideally, I would not like to have to sort the data, unless a macro did it for me....

## Trying To Calculate The Difference Between Two Dates

Sep 11, 2008

This is more of a query on date dif

I was trying to calculate the difference between two dates on excel

I had a look through the search message board and searched the web generally where I came across the datedif function

I had found that in order to get the number of years it was

=datedif(startdate,enddate,"Y")

for months same formula"YM" and for days use "MD" in place of "Y" in the original formula

My question is when using datedif to calculate the number of days between two days it initialy gave me the right answer

Number of days between 01/08/2008 - 22/08/2008 - Answer 21 days

Using date dif gave me 21 days but when i did

01/08/2008 - 01/09/2008 - this gave me 0

Am I entering the formula wrong or does datedif simply not pick the difference if the days havent changed even though the month has ?

I then found i could simply minus one from the other , which then had me asking what is the point of date dif
