# Increase / Decrease Numbers Evenly For Spreadsheet

Aug 27, 2012
How to increase & decrease numbers evenly for a spreadsheet.

I have a number in cell F16 that can be changed and for this example say it has a value of 900.

I have a number in cell F17 that is always more than cell F16, for this example lets say it is 1000.

What I'm trying to do is create 10 numbers evenly increasing away from 900 (F16) in value, & 10 numbers evenly decreasing in value away from 900 (Cell F16) but here's the catch.

What makes this tricky is that the numbers that are increasing in value away from 900 (F16) can't be bigger than the value of F17 , IE in this example the number 1000

So the formulas must evenly distribute 10 numbers BETWEEN 900 & 1000. This must have the same even distribution for the increasing numbers & decreasing numbers.

I'll attach a sheet also. So, if you say 900 is a starting point & 1000 is the ending point, what formulas would you need in each cell to evenly increase to 1000?

Also,, going the other way, decreasing, away from 900 at the same rate as the increase?

Really stuck n this 1.

I'll attach a spreadsheet .xls

I have totals in d18 and e18 and need to find the percentage increase or decrease between the 2. E18 is last year's value and D18 is this year's value. Which formula will give me what I am looking for:

(D18-E18)/D18 or (D18-E18)/E18

I'm dealing with the following problem. Say I have a set af values:

A B

1 567

2 546

3 567

4 554

5 572

6 543

I can easily determine the average of the values in column B (=AVERAGE(B1:B6)) But I also want to know if the average is increasing or decreasing without making a chart and trendline. Concrete: I want the cell with average (say B7) to turn green when the trendline has a positive growth and red when negative.

Simplified:

I have a this years total in A1, last years total in B1, difference +/- in C1

$1000.00___$800.00___+$200.00___+%

$800.00___$1000.00___<$200.00>___<%>

I am trying to get a % of Increase/Decrease (Between A1 and B1) in D1.

Not as a dollar amount but as a %.

I have tried Percentile and PercentRank and some other stuff. No joy.

I have a single simple question, so let's get straight to the point: I have an A column with these values:

I:::I::::::A::::::I::::::B:::::....

I==================== ....

I 1 I____40____I_________ ....

I 2 I____50____I_________.....

I 3 I____30____I_________.....

And I need each of these values increased/decreased by a constant number.

So far, I only found formulas where all cells are, say, added into a single result, as you can see here:.....

I need to be able to select a certain number (from, say, 1-20) from a drop down menu, which will decide a number of rows (filled with data) on the next sheet. As I prefer not to give anyone the sheet I'm actually working on I made a quick look-a-like which might explain this better.

A and B are different scenarios, with different values in the fake drop-down menu I made. Just to pass on the understanding of what I want the values to do. If putting a drop-down menu there is troublesome, then I can live without them. But entering a certain value in the field and getting that number of rows for a certain product is what I need. I tried searching for a function/macro to use for this, but I dont know what exactly to look for. Name, etc

I need a formula that can work out a percentage increase or decrease from cell J2 to L2.

J2 is the current data with L2 being the previous data - so the formula would compare J2 with L2 and tell me if there is an increase or decrease shown as a percentage.

The figures fluctuate from month to month so they could be either an increase or decrease. There are over 300 entries so I can't go through each one adjusting the formula accordingly - this is why I need the formula to do the working out if it is up or down.

I have a simple spreadsheet. A value is inserted in cell B4.

I want to increase that value or decrease it by adding a button in the next cells, C4 or D4, to increase and decrease that value instead of manually typing in the new value.

in speeding up the below code as it does not seem to matter whether I use For, If loop etc - it runs too slowly. Basically we have one sheet which is input in a different timezone that needs converting to GMT... since daylight saving I wrote some code to cover the +/- 1 hour difference (this seems to work quite well) yet when it comes to converting the actual cells it runs incredibly slowly. I appreciate any help but its only the code after "Sheets("data").Unprotect" that i think needs changing. The time stamp is in column 7 - I hope this makes enough sense - which then gets converted by either 4.5 or 5.5 hours dependent on british summer time.

Sub TimeConvert()

With Application

.Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic

. ScreenUpdating = False

.DisplayAlerts = False

.EnableEvents = False

End With

Dim FirstDate As Date

Dim Position, DayIndex, lgrow, lstrow As Long, TargetMonth As Long, Stweekday, Enweekday, Tdate As Date, TargetYear As Long, cell As Range

Dim bst As Boolean

TargetYear = Year(Now)

TargetMonth = 3

Position = "L"

DayIndex = 1

I have a macro that increase a cell number and one that decreases a cell number, heres my code:

Code:

Sub Macro1()

Dim t

t = Split(Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("d5").Text, "/")

t(0) = Format(t(0) + 1, "0")

Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("d5") = Join(t, "/")

[Code] .......

So they do exactly what i want them to do but i want to put a limitation on them, so say the number in the cell is 0 then i dont want it to be able to subtract from it anymore, and say the number is 20 i dont want it to be able to add any more, i tried to put if statments into the code but no luck.

I'm building a keypad out of commandbutton controls, and there's this strange resizing behavior with the commandbuttons. I've attached an example, as it's much easier to see than describe.... but essentially, clicking a button seems to enlargen it slightly, and then two clicks later, it 'dezooms' back to original size (even with shadows turned off). while this is not hugely noticeable individually, it feels really strange when there's a whole keypad of commandbuttons.

I am having difficulty finding information on coding my spin button on a user form. I searched and haven't found any information. I need to do is code a spin button to increase or decrease by 1 each time it is clicked up or down. I would like it to populate to a text box on my form if that is possible.

I’m trying to make this:

Amount of money: 1000 (changeable)

Beginning # of units: 0,1 (changeable)

Delta: 200 (changeable)

Rate of decrease: 50% (changeable)

0,1 unit should be added for every 200$ increase (1000+200=1200; 1200+200=1400; 1400+500=1900; 1900+256=2156 etc)

0,1 unit should be taken away after decreasing by100$ (because the rate of decrease = 50% (changeable))

After increasing of 1000 + 200, quantity of units should also increase for 0,1, so it should be 0,2 (1200), 0,3(1400), 0,4(1600)….. Amount of money can increase not only by 200, but for any sum. If that sum is (for example) 500, we should increase by 0,2 etc.

But when this some decreasing we are using rate of decrease (for example 50%, (changeable):

0,4 units – 1600

0,3 units – 1500

0,2 units – 1400

0,1 unit – 1300

I have a table that has labels of departments. Then each of those departments will be tracked per week on a number. I am looking for a formula for conditional formatting that if cell C5 is less than B5 that cell C5 (with the smaller number) fills green. Then depending on the next weeks number it will have no fill or a green fill if the number has decreased in cell D5.

Is there anyway that I can do an array of cells or do I have to do it individually per column?

I am trying to create a spreadsheet that will automatically increase the work order number by 1. The cell will always be in the same place. The idea is that when the file is opened it populates the number. After being closed and reopened the number will be 1 higher than the previous.

The page will reused by various people to create and print work requests for my mechanics, I want it to assign the W/O automatically.

I have two worksheets and each one has it's own number. Sheet1 has "100" and Sheet2 has "101" and they're located in "A4" on each. Each sheet will have a control button that will be pressed when a sheet is complete. The control button will clear a range of cells "B5:C20" and increase the sheet number in "A4". So if you press the control button on Sheet1 the range will be cleared and the number will change to "102" since Sheet2 is already using "101".

When we sell things here at a 'sale' price there is always an argument as to who's department needs to give the discount off.

Each job we do has a labour time and an hourly labour rate.

Each part has a profit in it.

So if something is normally Â£100 but we are going so sell it for Â£80 we need tio split the Â£20 reduction evenly to both departments based on the GP each department has in the sale.

See attached : GP Reduction per department.xlsxâ€Ž

I don't know how else to ask this so I will just tell you what I'm trying to do.

-I have a list of name on one column say "A"

and this list of names goes through "A1" through "A145"

-I am taking those names and pasting them via "right click" "paste special"

"Values" onto another spreadsheet.

-BUT I have to take each name one by one and paste them evenly

in every 8th row for example ( "A1" A8" "A16" "A24" ...)

-Is there a way to take the existing data on that row and just spread it evenly throughout the same row? So I don't have to take names one by one by one...
