Counting Streaks In Data
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= 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?

I was trying to figure out how you could caluculate a project end date, based on a start date (dd,mmm,yyyy) and a project duration of lets say 5 work day and the work week is five days long (monday to friday). If i have a leave on the week days like tuesday is bank holiday then it should give be the date excluding that tuesday and wednesday leave and caluculate 5 working days and shoule give the project end date.

Example date: 5-Oct-09

Project end date:09-Oct-09

If i have bank leave on 06-Oct-09 means.

My project end date:12-Oct-09

Note:Bank holidays are fixed date example(every year bank holiday 06-oct-09,02-Dec-09,25-Dec-09)

Inventory And Profit/Loss
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?

Calculate The Profit And Loss
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.

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))

Simple Subtraction Formula Not Calculating
I've got a list of marks (col T), and I want to create a new column subtracting 5 from each value.

Obviously, the formula in this new column is

But I enter that formula and excel doesn't do any calculating, it just displays "T1-5"
It even seems to recognize that it's a formula, highlighting T1 in the formula and the T1 cell itself, but no resulting value...

I've tried changing the format of the cells (in both columns) to Number and back to General again, but without success.

I've also tried copying and pasting (values only) the whole T column to another column, and tried there, also without any success.

Calculating Formula Not Working Properly
I am trying to work out an excel workbook for calculating family recipes. I have gotten most of it figured out but am having a problem with one thing. When the serving size of an item is 8 oz & the recipe calls for 14.5 oz the only way I can get it to work properly is to enter 1.75 in the serving size.

But I would like (actually need) to be able to enter the 14.5 and have it calculate the calories correctly - since sometimes the amount to be added to the recipe may be 15 ounces and the serving size is 8 ounces etc....

Pivot: Gain/loss Over Time
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:

Formatting Dates To Won-loss Values
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: Calculating Averages To Reach A Goal
Below is my data point for each month. The goal I need to hit is 99%. So I need to figure out what minimum monthly percentage I need for the rest of the year, I will need to reach a goal of 99%, and if I can't reach it, return an error. Lastly, i want to be able next month to go in and fill in the AUG percentage with an absolute number (i.e. 89%) and then I would like the rest of the percentages to automatically update by figuring out the new minimum monthly average given the new value for August. I thought that I might be able to do that if there is a function that says "If cell is a number, leave it alone, if it's a formula, then include that cell in the calculation of the minimum monthly average.

Jan 89%
Feb 88%
Mar 83%
Apr 89%
May 90%
Jun 86%
Jul 82%

Formula For Calculating 360 Rowsx180 Columns Data Set
I have a set of data 361 rowsx 180 columns. I need to calculate a volume using these depth measurements and the one row of latitude. The formula i need to use is along the lines of =111120*cos(A1)*B1. Then for the next calculation A and B need to be the next cell down, so =111120*cos(A2)*B2. This continues all the way to the bottom and then the equation starts back at A1 for the cos() value and B changes to column C, so it will be =111120*cos(A2)*C2, then you go down the columns until you reach A180. this goes for 360 colums.

Friction Loss Calculator For Fire Hose
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.

Shortening The Formula I Used For Calculating Number Of Public Holidays That Passed
I am using this formula to calculate a set of PH(Public Holidays) that have passed from a period of 1/4/2009 to 31/3/2010.

=IF(TODAY()>='Team Schedule'!D5,1.5,0)+IF(TODAY()>='Team Schedule'!D6,1.5,0)+IF(TODAY()>='Team Schedule'!D7,1.5,0)+IF(TODAY()>='Team Schedule'!D8,1.5,0)+IF(TODAY()>='Team Schedule'!D9,1.5,0)+IF(TODAY()>='Team Schedule'!D10,1.5,0)+IF(TODAY()>='Team Schedule'!D11,1.5,0)+IF(TODAY()>='Team Schedule'!D12,1.5,0)+IF(TODAY()>='Team Schedule'!H2,1.5,0)+IF(TODAY()>='Team Schedule'!H3,1.5,0)+IF(TODAY()>='Team Schedule'!H4,1.5,0)-4.5

From what u can see here, its a massive formula.... but I am pretty sure that there is a shorter way to key in the formula

'Team Schedule'!D5-D12 and 'Team Schedule'!H2-H4 are PH. disregard the 4.5 that is in the formula as it is used for other purposes. Every PH that has passed will credit a 1.5 into the cell.

Charges to network B is 2,29,- per minute after the first 20 minutes are spent.

so what im trying to do is base on the system time is if the person typed in

if they were early 6:45am to 7am they get Extra $5 on top of the $5 they get for being on time.

6:55am gets $5
7:00am they get $5.00 for being on time
if they type 7:01am to 7:05am they get $3.00
if they type 7:06 to 7:10am would return You Were Late
after 7:10am would return No Pay

so Ex

D4 *answers in E4 *

7am would get $5

7:03am am would get $3

7:07am would get You Were Late

7:11am Would get No Pay

if they were on time 5 times (ie 5days in a row) they would get a bonus of $20 i tried factoring this in could not do it :/

Calculating The Overtime
We are guaranteed (right now) a 10 hour day. (we are on 4 - 10 hour shifts). So if we work 9 hours say on Monday, we get 9 hours of straight time and an hour of short work week (approx 80% of pay). Now if we work 11 hours on Tuesday (which they can do unfortunately) I get 11 hours of straight time and no overtime. We have to make up for the short work week hour. So a less complicated explanation would be if I dont work more than 40 hours per week, no overtime no matter what I actually worked per day. Seems pretty simple but what I want and need to do is to calculate it per day.

Mon 10 Hours
Tues 11 Hours
Wed 9.5 Hours
Thurs 10 hours

I should get:

Mon 0 overtime
Tues .5 overtime
Wed 0 overtime
Thurs 0 overtime

I got it to the point where If the day where we get short work week is first and overtime after that, it works. But if we work overtime first then get short work week later in the week, it wont calculate it. I know why it wont work now but I dont know how to make it work. LOL Here's a link to the file.
