# Formula For Budget Variance

May 18, 2009

finding a way to compare the two budgets i.e 08/09 and 09/10 and if a new cost centre appears in 09/10 it will bring a yes in column G(New cc) and if the Cost Centre already exist in 08/09 it will bring a blank--but in both cases i want a variance in the next column H i.e 09/10 less 08/09.

I am trying to do my homework for college and the below excel grid was given to us to complete. I do not understand where to get the information it is asking. the first grid is the numbers we are suppose to use to input in the other grids. We are suppose to put a formula in on the last to two columns on each grid but I do not even know where to start.

## Forecast An Estimated Budget Based On Original Budget And Percent Complete

May 21, 2006

In the attached spreadsheet i have a budget amount, billed to date, %complete, %remaining and forecast figure. What i am trying to do is estimate the forecast spend vs the budget or billed to date and percent remaining. I am struggling with how to do this based on in some cases the budget is already overspent but the %complete is less than 100%. What i really want to do is create a forecast based on the billed to date or budget depending on which is greater and work out estimated spend based on whether the task is complete or there is still a % remaining.

## Create A Spreadsheet That Will Keep Track Of Budget Spent And Budget Remaining?

## Formula To Work Out A Variance Between Two Times (subtracting Time)

Apr 8, 2007

formula to work out a variance between two times

Using the 24hr time format in cell a1 i have a start time of 10:43 and in cell b1
i have an estimated time i think a job should take in this case 30 minutes and in cell c1 i have the actual time that job was finished in this case 11:07 and in cell d1 i have a variance between the two times which in this case would be saving me 6 minutes

## Budget Splitting Formula

Jul 4, 2008

I have to run payroll every two weeks, and part of the process involves calculating overtime for over 50 employees. The total amount of overtime hours for each employee is usually split on two or three budgets and after I calculate the budget splits, I have to enter these amounts into the payroll system. (The payroll system takes up to 2 decimal spaces.)

I have a spreadsheet set up for each employee, but what I've noticed is that the sum of the parts does not always equal the whole.

For example, Bob Goodworker worked 9 hours of overtime this pay period.

His budget split will be as follows:

Budget A (58.5%) = 5.27
Budget B (31.5%) = 2.84
Budget C (10%) = 0.90

However, 5.27 + 2.84 + .90 = 9.01

The payroll system only allows for numbers up to 2 decimal places.

## Formula - Monthly Budget

Mar 5, 2009

I am looking for a formula to sort out a budget problem I am currently working on... I am guessing that the formula is pretty simple but my mind is blank...

What I am trying to do is:

Cell A1 is my cash budget
Cell A3 is actual cash used
Cell A5 is The Difference between A1 & A3 (sum A1-A3)

What I want in Cell A7 is a formula to tell me if my Budget is over 50% either way..

For instance if A1 = 100 and A3 = 155 then I am 55% over and would like a note to appear saying "Explanation required".
If A1 = 100 and A3 = 45 then I am 55% under my Budget and would like a note to appear saying "Explanation required".

## Formula For Budget Salary / Expenses - Considering Take Home Pay

I am working on a budget spreadsheet and want to find a formula that will automatically tell me what my take home pay is depending on the yearly salary and see if covers my expenses (linked to another spreadsheet). It will be easier to budget my expenses depending on my salary. My attempts to create IF and = haven't worked.

## Formula: Calculates % Of Budget Based On Signs

Feb 5, 2007

I am having an issue creating a formula that calculates % of Budget based on signs. What I mean is positive budget, negative actual and vice versa. Here are all the cases. Can someone please create a formula that I can copy down.

Actual Plan% Budget
85,60696,85188.4%
70-82185.9%
-1,530-3,786247%
-100100-200%

## Time Variance

Apr 2, 2008

Column A has a time (no date)
Column B VLooks-up a value from a separate sheet per country, so it pulls through a the variance [-11 to +13] from UTC (GMT) time dependent on country.
All other data is irrelevant.
Let's say Column C has following formula: A2+B2/24.

This works where the time result (new time) is on the same day, but as soon as it crosses over midnight, it buggers up.

What I'm needing to do is take a list of events (server time/GMT) and convert them to the local time from where the event was triggered based on source country.

## Calculate The Variance

Feb 6, 2009

i have a dynamic list of numbers....currently 10 numbers in the list.

how can i calculate the variance?

i have the upper limit (=MIN(1,(mean+half width))
i have the lower limit (=MAX(0,mean-half width)
i have the mean (avg of all numbers)
i have the t value (TINV(alpha, (n-1)))
i have the half width (t value * SQRT of Var/N)

i just don't know how to get the VAR/N

## Variance Percentage Calculation

Apr 16, 2014

I am trying to get my variance percentage to calculate correctly but I am struggling when it comes to one of the value being zero. It works fine for the below example when both the variance and last year figures a zero.

Last Year This Year Variance Percetage

0 0 0 0.00% IF(Last Year=0, "",Variance/Last Year)

0 100 100 0.00% This should be 100%

## Calculating Time Variance

Jan 26, 2009

I'm trying to calculate the variance between planned date & time of arrival vs actual date & time of arrival.

I attach the workbook as am a bit useless at explaining myself....

What I've done is in H14 subtract the actual date of arrival (F14) from planned date of arrival (C14). This result is the only way I could think of dealing with crossing over midnight. As a result I14 should subtract the actual time of arrival (E14) from planned time of arrival (B14):

=SUM(E14-B14,H14)

This method works well when the arrival was later than expected but doesn't work if the arrival was sooner than expected.

## Sum Up The Batch Quantities For A Date With Variance One

Jun 1, 2007

I need to sum up the batch quantities for a date with variance one...
but it doesn't work... I suspect that I'm using wrong formula, it should be not SUMPRODUCT...

when I tried to use just SUM, it adds all the quantities in the colomn.

## Fornula For Displaying Positive Or Negative Variance

Feb 22, 2010

I need a formula that will display a 'yes' or 'no' if the following condition is met:

If the value of cell (L17) is greater than 10% positive variance, then 'YES' else 'NO'.

Currently the value of L17 is 14%, therefore should be a 'YES', however how can I get the following to work:

IF(AND(L17=<0,"NO",L17>10%,"YES"))

I apologise as I know there are too many arguements here but is there a way around this?

## Budget Projections

Jan 12, 2009

We have hourly amounts remaining on projects, we want to project cost at 40 hour work weeks and 50 hour work weeks. We simply multiply the 40 hour budgets times the straight time rate, but we need to calculate the over time on the 50 hour budgets.

examples:
600 hours on 40 hour budget at \$25 and hour is \$15,000. However on a 50 hour budget it would include 480 straight time hours and 120 overtime hours for a budget of \$16,500.

Our data is hourly bugets in column "A". In column "B" we did =A3*straighttimerate. Is there a formula that can calculate 40hrs straight time then 10hrs over time until the budget runs out? We are working with Microsoft Office Proffesional 2007 with Excel 2007 but need to remain compatible with Excel 2003.

Budget (hours)straight time (\$25)over time (\$37.5)240\$6,000.00?4652\$116,300.00?152\$3,800.00?258\$6,450.00?645\$16,125.00?

## Budget Markups Dependent On Certain Total

Aug 1, 2014

My boss has asked me to find a way to charge a mark-up on our project budgets based on a certain budget tier system (\$0-1000, \$1001-5000, \$5001-10000, \$10001+) He doesn't want a general percentage. Is there a way to do this is Excel?

He was talking about Boolean functions, but he was also used to using Logic. I do not know logic or if there is any such function within Excel.

## Checkbook Register With Monthly Budget

Aug 15, 2014

Working on a Checkbook Register/Monthly Budget.In column A I have the Check # or Type of Transaction, in column D is Debit, in column F is Credit, and in column G is Balance. I am writing the Check #, Debit, Elect., or Bill in column A.What I want to do is write a formula in column H to find all the Bills in column A and add all there Debit in column D together. I don't know if I change the word Bill to a code # if that would work or not. If it does, could I use a range of number of different bills like 200-299.

Example: If (A2-A50) = "Bill" or (200-299) add the same row # in column D for a total sum.Would like to use the code # if possible so I can budget the Bills individually if possible.

Using the Formula: =IF(ISBLANK(C3),"",G2-D3+F3) in column G for Balance, don't want to mess with this formula.

## Red(-ve)/Green(+ve) Text For Under/over Monthly Budget

Aug 6, 2009

I've devised a monthly savings sheet to allow me to track my savings towards a deposit on a house. My target is £xxx a month, but as I could contribute loose amounts of money I'd like to be able to display a field next to each month of how much over I've contributed or how much under I've contributed.

I'd like this to be represented as:- If I contribute more than £xxx for a month then display it as green text and calculate how much over has been contributed.

If I contribute less than £xxx for a month then display it as red text and calculator how much under the contribution has been. I'm really not sure how to do this, I would do it manually normally but surely there is a way of automatically representing it.

## Divide A Budget Of 100k For Each Of My Employees

Oct 23, 2009

how I would be able to divide a budget of 100k for each of my employees.

If I have employees making anywhere from 20,446.40 - 69,659.20 How can I give each employee a portion on these funds?

For example if:
Lisa makes 20,446.40
Tom - 24,448.20
Liz - 34,854.60
Mike - 44,564.80
Jan - 62,061.48
Dan - 54,324.20

What would be the precentage that I could give each employee?

## Budget Worksheet - Lock Cells With Formulas

Jul 24, 2014

So I am trying to create a budget worksheet for past and future expenses, basically an excel checkbook with running balance

In Column A I have my debits/credits

In Column B I have my running balance so that there is a current total next to each of the debit/credits in column A, it is formulated as follows, it adds the cells directly above it to the cell directly to the left of it (i.e. Cell B10 = B9+A10, which was dragged and iterated to many cells below)

I wan to be able to drag in drop cells in the A column (Just moving them up and down different cells in the A column) with out it changing formulas in the B column.

I tried the \$ trick so that for example B10 = B9+\$A\$10 but if I moved cell A9 to say A10, I get a reference error in cell B10 (why is it doing this when B10 is locked with \$)

I then tried going to format and locking the B column and not the A column and then protected the document but I still get the same REF error.

I know I can copy and paste with out effecting it but this is tedious, the whole reason I did this was so that I can move around bills EASILY and play around with what get paid when. There has to be a way to do this, but I'm probably searching with the wrong keywords.
