## Calculating The Average Gain & Loss For Numbers In One Column?

Mar 27, 2009

I wanted to know how I can calculate the average gain and average loss for data that is inputted into one column? For example;

Column A
\$12,000
-\$5,000
\$6,500
-\$1,000
\$8,000
-\$4,000

Average Gain ??
Average Loss ??

## Counting Streaks In Data

May 9, 2007

I'm sure it's been asked before but I can't figure out what words to use to find it in the search. Is there a formula that can count number of occurences of a streak. For example... I have data of the Washington Redskins kicker, kicking field goals over 40 yards for the past 10 years in Row 2. It is much longer then this, but this is a short example.

G...M...G...G...G...M...M...G...G...M...G...G...G...M

G= Good
M= Miss

I'd like to count the number of times the kicker has made 3 field goals in a row. So, the first G...G...G would be 1 and so on. Any body know how to do this?

## How To Create Formula For Stop-loss Logic

May 21, 2014

I'm trying to create an excel spreadsheet that keeps track of the highest value from a dynamic series. First a bit of background:

A manufacturer produces widgets made from gold. Therefore in order to quote manufacturing prices, they typically get a live gold price using Excel's web services and if the live price is higher that the last gold price they used, then they update their base price list for gold components. If the live price is lower than the last gold price they used, the last gold price does not change.

I'm trying to produce the above logic in Excel using:

Cell A1: [Excel data connection to pull live Gold price] - no problem here

Cell A2: dynamic 'price' that only updates if cell A1 is higher than cell A2

Cell A2 is where I'm getting stuck. I can't think of how to create a formula that updates cell A2 if cell A1 is higher.

## Totalling A Win Loss Column

Sep 27, 2009

I have two columns for a Home and an Away win-loss records for a team over a few seasons. The win-loss stats in each column are in the form 24-13 (2-two digit numbers with a hyphen in between). How can I get a total at the bottom of the column for all the win-losses?

## Calculate The Profit And Loss

Jul 20, 2007

I have a trading system spreadsheet that I am at a loss as to how to calculate the profit and loss.

I was unable to attach a sample of the spreadsheet. I hope this explanation works. If not, I could email it.

Where:
Market position is either 1 or -1
Entry price is the price where the position is reversed.

For example:
H3=1 and I3=100.56, then
H4=-1 and I4=100.88, then
H5=1 and I5=100.53

I need to calculate the profit as follows:
I4 - I3 (because market position of 1 expects the price to go up) and then,
I4 - I5 (because market position of -1 expects the price to go down)

I want to calculate this as a running total to the bottom of the column.

This is the formula I was working with, but it doesn't work:

=IF(OR(\$J4="",ISERROR(MATCH(-\$J4,\$J4:\$J\$55,0)),),"",\$J4*(OFFSET(\$K4,MATCH (-\$J4,\$J4:\$J\$55,0)-1,)-\$K4))

## Inventory And Profit/Loss

Feb 11, 2007

I have a workbook that contains several worksheets. The 2 important sheets are Imports and Sales.

In reading the MS KB, the help screens and this forum, I found a way to create a pivot table from 2 sheets using Data>Pivot Table>Multiple Consolidation Ranges. While that PT will provide a basic inventory and profit picture, it only allows 4 selects.

When these products are imported there are several SKU's. What gums up the works is there are several vendors for the same SKU's. Each vendor has a different price. The selling price is constant so the profit made on each particular item varies.

I would like to be able to keep track of inventory by vendor as well as profit by vendor.

Using the Consolidation PT does not seem to work.

I also tried making one sheet to hold all the data. i.e. data showing imports and sales. However, each entry is driven by the date. So while item A was received on 1/1/07, it was not sold until 1/2/07. The necessary columns for imports are filled in while the columns for sales remain blank until it is their row entry indicating a particular sale. At which point all the columns regarding Imports are blank. I swear, looking at the data sheet with all those blanks (actually0's) is like looking at a mouth full of broken teeth. The resulting PT is also not attractive.

I can not imagine I am the first person to have this problem. How do others handle figuring inventory and profits when you have two sheets. Are Pivot Tables the wrong solution? What would be better?

## Tracking Weight Loss In Excel

Aug 2, 2008

How do I track my total weight loss in excel? Here is an example of what I am trying to do.

8/1/2008 228lbs
8/2/2008 225lbs
8/3/2008 223lbs

Total 5lbs

I would like use a formula that would subtract my absolute weight loss total day by day in August. Basically, I want the total "cell" to equate to my total weight loss in August. For Example after 8/3/08 the "total cell" should equate to 5 lbs. What formula do I use to do this?

## Pivot: Gain/loss Over Time

Feb 12, 2009

I have a excel 2000 spreadsheet that has beginning and ending dates for certain services. I'm trying to tease out what our customer base has been doing over time in aggregate- i.e. how many customers subscribing to X in a given month/year.

The only way I've been able to do this in the past has been generating pivot charts of start dates (with 'start mo' and 'start year' busted out) as a positive count (+1), stop dates (with 'stop mo' and 'stop year' busted out) with a negative count (-1), then copying these tables into yet another page where I mash them together to get the 'flow' of our customer base over time and generating charts from there. Needless to say, it seems a whole lot more clunky than it should be, and I'm having a hard time searching the innarwebs for similar examples (even though I'm sure it's been done before). Example:

## Adding Icon Of Gain Or Loss

Dec 4, 2012

## Formatting Dates To Won-loss Values

Jan 12, 2010

I currently copy/paste sports data from the web into MS Excel. One of the columns pasted contains "Won-Loss", which appears as '1-0' on the web. However, once the data is pasted, Excel identifies this field as a date and changes the value of '1-0' to 'Jan-'00. I would like to insert a new column and convert the field back to text (i.e. Jan-00 to 1-0). I have attempted several formulas, however no luck as of yet.

## Formula For Calculating Tax?

Feb 12, 2012

I've made a spreadsheet that allows the user too enter their clock in and out times in a day for a week, it allows you too fill in two weeks worth (because we get paid fortnightly). It automatically calculates each week's pay once it has been filled in, all I need is a formula too calculate how much they would be paid after tax. I can work how much they will be paid for the 2 weeks befor tax, but I just need a formula too deduct tax from this.

## Unable To Create Simple Win / Loss Chart

Dec 4, 2012

I have a # of games played column (Column A), a # of games won column (Column B), and a number of games lost column (Column C).

I'm trying to make it so Column C automatically enters the number when I put in the number in Column B.

Example:

Games Played........Win........Loss
1.........................1...........0
2.........................1...........1
3.........................1...........2
4.........................2...........2

For the fifth game played, if I won it, how do i make the 2 to automatically enter into the loss column when I put in the number 3 in the win column?

## Profit / Loss Payroll And Cost Of Supplies

Mar 6, 2013

I have multiple departments I need to keep track of multiple numbers with. For example, I need to see the cost of payroll for last fiscal year, vs this fiscal year and have excel show that as a gain (bad) or shrink (good).

I need to track sales this FY vs last FY, obviously, a gain is good and shrink is bad.

Finally, I need to track d&d goods this FY vs last FY.

Where I'm getting held up is, for example last year's payroll was 12000 and this year's is 12500 but next months is 11000 this FY vs 13000. How do I get excel to figure out that payroll decreasing is good and not just do simple subtraction or negative addition thereby allowing me to just plug the numbers in and excel figure out if what I'm throwing at the cell is bad or good comparing to last year?

Also, if I could figure out the if/then to show positive numbers green and negative numbers red that would be quite awesome too.

## Friction Loss Calculator For Fire Hose

Apr 17, 2008

I am attempting to create a friction loss calculator for fire hose, I am using a known formula that calculates the loss based on volume and diameter for pipe. the difference that I have with fire hose in lieu of pipe is that the hose diameter changes with the pressure drop.

I have 3 variables that i input, pressure, beginning diameter and length. however
as the water flows through the line the pressure changes in turn the diameter changes, I would like to set up my spreadsheet so that the initial variables inputed yield the correct diameter, and then reference back to the initial equation and recalculate based on the yeilded diameter, and recalculates,

I can determine the friction loss at 1 foot, in turn determine the diameter at 2 foot, but I wish the spreadsheet to work the calculation over the entire length.

## Prevent Loss Of Copied Data On Clipboard

Sep 26, 2007

Using a macro I want to paste from the clip board.
I can manually do this by opening the clipboard, selecting the data, which pastes to my specified location.

The macro copies to the clipboard okay, but loses the data that I want to paste because just before pasting I have to clear data which was previously been filtered - I have to do this at this point. The macro bogs down. If I end the macro there, I can manually open the clip board and choose the data I copied from there and paste it that way. I'd like the macro to do this for me.

## IF / OR Formula For Calculating Commission

May 6, 2014

I am trying to create a formula that calculates multiple commissions based on profit margin. So here is what I'm looking to. If the profit margin is between 50 and 70% than there is an additional 2% commission, if it's between 70.01-100% profit margin, than it's an additional 5% here is the equation I have=IF(OR(E2>50,E2<70),D2*2%,(IF(OR(E2>70.01,E2<100),D2*5%)))but it's still calculating at the 2% even thought it's an 86% margin.

## Prevent Loss Of Data - Error Message Pops Up

Sep 11, 2013

What is this error message that is popping up when I try to insert a blank row of cells?

"To prevent possible loss of data, Excel cannot shift nonblank cells off of the worksheet. Select another location in which to insert new cells, or delete data from the end of your worksheet.

If you do not have data in cells that can be shifted off the worksheet, you can reset which cells Excel considers nonblank. To do this, press CTRL + End to locate the last nonblank cell on the worksheet. Delete this cell and all cells between it and the last row and column of your data then save."
