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.
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.
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?
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?
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
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?
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
I am looking for a simple loss/gain formula for my students. They are trying to find the loss/gain difference between an initial value, and the current value. They are using a monetary value, not date/time.
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.
I was wanting to put it on a spreadsheet. Probably a pretty easy deal, but I don't know the formula to use. this is what I want: Joes start weight 200 minus week ones weight, then the original 200 minus week 2's weight and so on till week 8. I want to keep a running total of weight lost in pounds as well as percentage.
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.
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)
I run a slimming club and would like to use Excel to keep records of members weights, losses, gains etc. What I would like to do is enter their starting weight into a cell then each week when they are weighed enter a loss or gain in an adjacent cell. I would then like Excel to calculate that loss or gain as a percentage of their original weight. Is this possible?
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."
This excel document we have has LARGE amounts of data
