## Finding Current Month Total Sales Using Current Month To Date Sales In Formula / Macro?

Aug 20, 2013

Basically, I'm doing a recorded macro for work where I take an export and manipulate the data to show differences between sales from last year and this year. Also comparing this months projected sales to avg of last 6 months and also against last years this month.

The problem I'm running into is in automating the this month sales for mid-month exports. I can do it individually but I can't find a formula that will do it. Data is in one cell per month, so ex. 130 sales this month so far. I need to have it convert that to projected sales for total month based on what day it currently is.

## Date Range Formula: Beginning Of Month To End Of Month (which Is In The Current Row)

Mar 20, 2009

I have log data in two columns:
Column A: Date/time (at 30 minute intervals)
Column B: Numeric data

On the last row of each month, I’m trying to perform a SumProduct on the two columns and display that result in column C.

The end of the range is determined by the month in the current row.

I’m having difficulty finding the beginning of the range, though. I need to account for both the normal dynamic calendar days & the fact that I may get data starting mid-day and mid-month.

I have this formula, but I’m not sure how to make the first array dynamic or if this is even correct approach.

Feb 4, 2014

Iâ€™m working on a project using Microsoft Excel 2010 and I want to add some features to facilitate saving and retrieving files process.

I have a spreadsheet for monthly supplies. In row 1 is Jan – Dec and in the row 2 below are empty cells where there will be a total for that month’s purchases. I want a conditional format formula to automatically bold and highlight the current month’s total and month name.

## Formula To Return Average Days Between Two Dates In A Given Month?

Jan 13, 2014

I have a workbook with two sheets. The first has a list of job positions open, columns designated to stages in the employment process and in these columns, my staff enter the dates that they completed a particular stage.

"Position | Date Opened | Stage 1 | Stage 2 | Stage 3 | Stage 4"
Pos 1 | 01/01/2014 |02/01/14|03/01/14|07/01/14|09/01/14

This has a great number of entries and they are increasing and decreasing every day depening on the amount of jobs available.

On the second sheet, I am trying to set up a table which shows the average working days it is taking to complete each stage, divided into the months in which the job position was opened (i.e. for positions opened in january, the average completion working days for stage 1 was X amount of days etc...)

I have tried using =IF(AND(Logical, Logical),TRUE,FALSE) but this doesn't return any info as the logicals will always be false. I tried the OR function, but that requires only one of the criteria to be true to return a value. What I need is for the formula to return a number of days between two dates, ONLY if the opened date falls in one month.

## Search Formula (return A Statement If A Certain Month Is Contained In The Text Within Another Cell)

Dec 21, 2008

At the moment it is putting in the first test for every month I select and not changing to blank.

May be there is a different formula, Not sure what is the trick ?

We have one excel file for moniroting of action items generated by the management after the study.

## Dynamic Search For Current Month Within A Row

Mar 28, 2014

I am trying to write a macro but I got a little stuck. Basically on row 6 I have the months listed out (so like Jan Feb Mar etc), and i would like my macro to dynamically search the the cell of current month and select it.

I know the cell formula for current month (ie. "Mar") is =TEXT(TODAY(),"MMM"), but is there a way to incorporate it into a search command in macro, or do I have to insert the formula into another cell and ask the search function to search for the text value in such "dummy cell"?

Another thing to note is, I do have more of "Mar"s scattered around the sheet, but if I limit my search area to row 6 there is only one, and that's the one I need to select.

## Conditional Format Of Current Month?

Oct 15, 2012

i'm using the following three formulas to perform conditional formatting on cell B when cell A contains a date. Each condition depicts a cell colour depending on the following:

Within The Current Month
=datevalue(day(today())&"/"&month(\$q\$3)&"/"&year(\$q\$3))=(today())

Prior To The Current Month
=datevalue(day(today())&"/"&month(\$q\$3)&"/"&year(\$q\$3))(today())

It took me so time to put this together, but I've one other condition which I need to add to the above which I'm having difficulty in solving.

In addition to setting the cell colour of cell B, i would also like to set a text value.

So if the date is:

Within The Current Month, I would like the cell to say "Act'ls",
Prior To The Current Month, I would like the cell to say "Act'ls", and
Greater Than The Current Month, I would like the cell to say "A'able"

I have a list of data done by date that is updated weekly. The data in the list changes but only the current month will have changes but the data goes back for a couple of years. Is there a way to clear only the current month from the list and then bring in the data for the current month to the list. The monthly data is stored in worksheets labeled by the month (January 13, February 13) So what I need with for the active worksheet (Master list) to keep all the entries from previous months, remove anything from the current month, then check the the current month worksheet and import the new data. The data on the month worksheets is in columns A and B, and gets moved to Columns A and B on the Master list.
