Iteration Inconsistency: Allow For A Cost Being Added To Loan Amount Where The Cost Is Based On The Total Loan Amount

Mar 15, 2007

In a financial environment we have a calculator which uses iteration to allow for a cost being added to loan amount where the cost is based on the total loan amount. Iteration is set to 100 iterations with max change .001

On one PC the first time the calculator is opened it gives a particular (incorrect) result. If the input cells are cleared and the data re-entered, it gives the correct result. This only happens on one particular PC. Is there some other setting , other than the iteration setting, that would cause this?

I need to calculate the monthly repayments on a loan taken out over a certain amount of years, which I can do fine.

I just cant get my head around how to calculate monthly repayments over a certain amount of years when the intrest is compounding annualy.

What I have so far:

p*(1+(r/100))^n Where p is value of original loan, r is annual intrest rate, n is amount of years, and I am hoping I am right in saying this is the total repayable amount of the loan?

Then putting that aside I created a amortization table. (which I am certain i forgot to include compound intrest in!)

To keep it short i followed this guide for the amortization table.

and now I am so confused about if I should be using PMT, PPMT, NPER?!

I would like a lookup that takes multiple criteria and that is not an array formula! Unfortunately I decided to use array formulae and my spreadsheet went to over 45mb!! Not good. I've searched the forum for an answer to my questions but couldn't find any! I've attached a spreadsheet as an example. The examples I am using have {Sum(IF)} formulae in it (array) and I would like to change those to others that will not increase the file size so much and will not take too long to calculate.

Basically, I would like a lookup that will return me the Amount Paid and Full Cost based on the person's name and the date. the data and the results table are both on separate sheets. It would be nice to bring that file's size back down to less than 4mb!!

I need a formula that will scan column A (Code)total the like items (also) add column B (Qty) if there is a number greater than 1. Then add the price ($) together and divide by the sum of A&B.

In other words find the average price for the total of each item..

I need to calculate the total cost of outbound calls based on the total duration of outbound calls multiplied by cost per minute. For example, in a given month, the total duration of outbound calls is 261:16:34 being 216 hours, 16 minutes and 34 seconds. I have this figure in cell A1 with the format [h]:mm:ss. I then convert this to minutes in cell B1 by saying B1=A1, but having the format [m], which gives me 15676. In cell C1, I have the cost per minte value of £0.026. But when I apply the formula D1=B1*C1, I get £0.283, when 15676*£0.026 should in fact be £407.58.

I am trying to keep a running total of cost, here is what I am doing

A B C D E F G H I

Date Books Pencils tax Month Books Pencils Tax Total 1/2/2014 11.50 2.50 .76 January 35.85 13.50 3.44 52.79 1/5/2014 14.50 3.85 .83 February 10.95 1.50 .68 13.13 1/6/2014 9.85 7.15 1.85 2/6/2014 10.95 1.50 .68

I only used Jan and Feb as an example. So as you see on the right side I will have all 12 months for the year and I just want all the totals for each month to auto calculate. I will have between 15 and 30 entries each month.

Regarding the attached pivot table screen shot, I would like to be able to add total revenue and cost for each product and overall to this pivot table. IOW, instead of just showing the net amount of 3,200 for all blenders, I would like it to show Revenue of 12,500, Cost of (9,300), and the net amount of 3,200 for all blenders (i.e., for Boise and Chicago combined), in addition to the totals for each of the two plants. Also would like to see total revenue, cost, and net for all products and plants combined at the bottom. Can this be done?

I am attempting to create a time chart that keep track how long a particular person works on an individual project to finally calculate profit & loss. Attached is the spreadsheet.

I am using invoice #'s to differentiate the jobs but have no clue how to make it calculate how much time was spent per job, per person then calculate the total cost per job per person?

I have included my budget so helpers can see it. I am trying creating a formula on mini-dashboard on A8 (Under the total budgeted amount) that will check the total budgeted amount based on the values I enter on the categories sheet. Of course it will be controlled using the drop down menu on A2 on mini-dashboard. I thought I had this working with a sumif function but it seems to have quit working.

Im trying to set up an active running inventory sheet where: (A)the progressive daily sheet cells reference back to the corresponding master sheet cells fluctuating the master values, (B) the same progressive daily sheet cells reference back to a cummulative totals-cell based on whether I added or subtracted inventory. I want to make a copy of the blank "sheet 2" with all of the formulas and move it to the end of the workbook each day and enter new values which will reference back to the master sheet so that I can click on a date sheet and see an individual day's values or click on the master sheet to see the fluctuating inventory on-hand and the cummulative +/- totals of all days combined. I've got a couple hundred individual cells to reference. I've tried and tried but I can't make it work. Heres what I need to do:

I need to reference individual cells from "sheet 2,3,etc" back to a corresponding cell in a master sheet. But I need the values in each cell in "sheet 2,3,ETC" to increase or decrease the corresponding cell values in the master sheet. For example: If the value in the master sheet B5 is 200. Then in sheet 2, I enter +50 in B5, I need the master sheet cell B5 to increase by 50 to 250. I also need a way to decrease the cell value in the master sheet B5 if I enter a negative value -50 in sheet 2 B5. I also want to know if I can reference the same cell values entered in "sheet 2,3,etc cell B5" back to totals columns C5 for adding inventory or D5 for subtracting inventory in the master sheet where the master totals columns would reflect cummulative totals added or subtracted. For example: if the value in sheet 2 B5 is +50, then the value in Master sheet C5 would add 50 to a progressive total. But if the value in sheet 2 B5 is -50 then the value in master sheet D5 would add -50 to a progressive total.

i. I currently have a spreadsheet which is used to forecast resource cost for a project. The forecasted cost is calculated on a few factors - rate, allocation, contract start and end date, and expected days worked per month. One of the mods actually helped me out with this a few weeks ago.

I now have been told that there is a possibility that certain resource costs may change in the new year and that will need to be reflected in the sheet whilst keeping the historic information.

For example - XXX has a rate of £200 p/d, allocation is 1, working 18.83 days p/m and is working from 01/01/09 to 01/06/09. The current formula will work out his cost per month until contract end. Now say his rate will be changed to £150 p/d from the 01/03 and all other info remains the same, I need the sheet to calculate his revised cost from 01/03 onwards and not change the calculation previous to that month.

Now Ive actually managed to figure that part out myself by adding in two columns (over-ride rate and over-ride date) using a nested IF statement. The only problem is that if the new rate starts mid month then it will still calcuate the original amount for the full month and the revised amount from the next month.

Edit - Also, could someone advise as to how do I remove my old attachments as I have almost used up my allocation.

I am trying to write a calc for a total an amount based on a list choice Here is the Set up Fields A1 thru A255 are number 1 to 255 Fields B1 thru B255 are number 255 to 1 Field C1 is a List box set using A1 to A255 and its list Field D1 is set as the needed Calculation

When you choose a number in C1 the D1 calculation should total the amount of Fields B* to B1, * being the corrisponding B field to the A field from the list

Example C1=100 (Field A100) D1=Sum of Fields B100 to B1

I have pivot tables where I need to look through a series of names and sum the hours and dollars charged by that person. When I try to do a pivot I can get it to read

column 1 Column 2 John Doe $4000 Mary Smith $ 500

But if I try to add the hour columns it breaks it out by the week the hours was charged

column 1 Column 2 Column 3 John Doe $2000 4 2000 4 Mary Smith $ 250 5 250 5

I want it to just give me one dollar total and one hour total per employee.

I owe 15462 in the bank, currency dont matter here, that is what I owe right now, but I want to have a cell in the frontpage with the amount left, so can I make a line called =remaining-each month

the amount should then each month be substracted from the new month and so on, until the amount is 0

can this be done?

the second page in the spreadsheet has a post with monthly pays to the bank ...

I'm working with a loan amortization worksheet (downloaded from Office Online). Unless I don't understand correctly, the date formula on the worksheet doesn't calculate the way I need it to. I'm not totally sure what the formula they use is doing. It does use a lot of named ranges.

If a user inserts the total "Number of Payments per year", then I want the date to return the proper payment date.

For instance, If the start date is 1/1/07 and the number of payments per year is 24 then the payment dates should be like

1/15/07 1/31/01 2/15/07 2/28/07

It should be the 15th and the last day of the month.

If I put 52 as the number of payments then I want the formula to set the payment dates to every Friday.

I'm still learning formulas so bare with me guys. Attached is the worksheet.

I need to make an automated way of extracting a list of IDs and the associated cost by a date range, say 6/1/2015 to 12/31/2015, plus the starting letter of the ID. I need the data to then fill a form where it can be sub-totaled. There are several additional columns of data that are not relevant so I know I can create a pivot table and then filter the data, but then I need to copy and paste the filtered data into the form. Is there a way to do this without me copy and pasting everytime?

I added a test worksheet to show the data and form.

How would I create a simple user form to display a price based off the category selected.

User types in List Price, then selects 1 of 4 discount categories, it then displays that price. An added bonus would be copying that price to another sheet, but not necessary..

to run a macro that enters a new row after each set of currencies (which have been sorted). I now need to enter a total balance cell within this empty row which calculates the total amount for each currency.

I need to do this using the SUMIF function below: SUMIF($J$3:$J$300,"L/C",$I$3:$I$300)-SUMIF($J$3:$J$300,"L/D",$I$3:$I$300)

the above basically lets me calculate the total but as no - and + signs were input it does this by recognising the 'dr' and 'cr' in the column next to the amount.

I have 2 tables, one with invoices, the other with purchase orders. I would like to have a "PO Amount Remaining" column on the invoice table that looks up the PO listed on the invoice with the PO $ amount on the PO table. Once it is matched, I would like to subtract the total invoices to give me the amount of the PO that is left. Basically I would like the "PO Amount Remaining" column right now to have $4,200 listed in each row for invoices 1 & 2.....

Is there a function, or how would I write a vba to figure out the following.

I have 86 items all with a different price, which come to a total of $348,359.33, is there a way to figure out which combination of the 86 entries will give me a total of $57,673.36

I have 4 Loans of various interest rates, balances, and minimum payments.

Assuming I have a certain amount of money to pay out each month, how can I minimize the total amount I pay over the lifetime of the loans?

Given: Total Monthly payment: M Interest Rate for each loan: R1, R2, R3, R4 Initial Principal for each Loan: P1, P2, P3, P4 Minimum Monthly Payment: Min1, Min2, Min3, Min4

Each month, how should I distribute M over the 4 loans?
