Simple Job Cost Sheet
The job cost controller is not exactly what I need, so I have been trying to create my own. So far my progress has got me to be able to separate each laborer for each job.
Here is my query: I have a drop down menu that lists ten different tasks(i.e. carpentry, painting, demo, etc.) and I want each of the ten tasks to separate themselves. Is this a vlookup function? How do I make excel listen?

Generate A Daily Job Sheet Showing All Of That Days Information
I have set up a datasheet with information to be used in generating several pivot tables: Column A  Our Invoice Number Comunn B  Vendor's Invoice Date Column C  Type of Vendor (Labor, PM, Subcontractor, Material, or Equipment) Column D  Vendor Name Column E  Vendor Invoice Number/Time Classification (Column C is Labor, PM, this is either Regular Time or Overtime. If Column C is Subcontractor, Material, or Equipment, the Vendor's Invoice Number is enetered.) Column F  Labor Hours Worked (Column C is Labor or PM, a value is entered, if not, formula enters "N/A") Column G  Labor Rate ((Column C is Labor or PM, vlookup value is entered, if not, formula enters "N/A") Column H  Amount Billed ((Column C is Labor or PM, formula multiplies rate by hours, if not, enter the amount of the Vendor's invoice.) Column I  Mark Up Percentage Column J  Mark Up Amount Column K  Total Amount Billed (Column H + Column J) I need to set up a daily job sheet (like and invoice) for each date listed under Column B. For each day, I need to generate a daily job sheet showing all of that day's information. The location of the information is based on the value in Column C  Subcontractors's data go in one spot on the sheet and Labor costs go in another place.

Transferring Cost From One Sheet To Another
I am trying to figure out how to update cost from a manufacturers price sheet in excel. I have one worksheet that has the manufacturer's part number and my current cost. A=item number B= current cost. on the second sheet is the same setup but my price list has roughly 3500 rows and the vendor price sheet is 23000 rows. Is there a way to automate the cost replacement by comparing item number and if they are the same replacing cost on sheet one with cost on sheet two?

Custom Print Job
With page breaks in Excel, is it possible to have different pages span a different number of columns? Right now, I have my page breaks laid out so I've got 3 separate pages. Currently, they are each 30 rows in height, and 30 columns in width. However, I want the first one to be 20 columns wide, the second to be 30 columns wide and the third to be 40 columns wide. If I try and drag the vertical blue bar, I adjust the column span for all 3 pages. I need a way to drag the vertical blue bar for each page separately.

Generate A Monthly Job Chart
I want to have my monthly job chart automated. I got a leave chart marked with workers' leaves on a month basis. Each month, I got to consolidate a job roster containing names of workers who will be working at the counter. It takes me almost 23 hours to have the roster completed. I attached here with an excel file for your information. Can it be done automatically by vba if data of workers' leaves are available? The names assigned will be at random in seqence each month(i.e. Peter will be at counter work on 3/10/2006 if not on leave but may be on 08/11/2006). That's why it takes me so long to compile the roster.

Lookup Way Of Searching For A Job Number Across All 31 Days
Due to the company that i work for doing alot of manuafacturing each and every day, i need some sort of look up. For example, the currently excel sheet i use. [IMG][/IMG] As you can see i have many different Job Numbers that i use.... BUT The problem that i am facing is, that these jobs sometimes are carried over to more than one day, [sheet bottom of screenshot] but also we might make the job one day and and then not again untill next week using the same Job Number. What I Need I need a way of searching for a job number across all 31 days and for it to total up the "Quantity (Qty)" of them all that we made upon that Job Number. So lets say the Job Number 91294 was run on day 1 (shown in screenshot). And it made 25. But it then ran again 3 days later on the same Job Number 91294. And it made 20. I need it to be able to work that out the total for me across them days being 45 upon the Job Number 91294. Things to Consider The layout will NOT change, no extra rows or coloums will be added.

Job Hour Tracking With Pivot Tables
I have an Excel timesheet that the supervisor loads the time (in and out) for all the shop employees. These employees may work up to six different jobs in one day at various points throughout the day. I have no problem with calcs and formats on the daily time entry tab (sheet1). What I need is a way to track each job using a running total so that as the job is in progress we can see how we are doing against estimated hours. I thought perhaps I should at least make a weekly time summary pivot table thinking that it would make it easier to calculate, but it didn't help with running totals. The summary included (5) copies of the same daily entry tab (sheet1) just given a different name, in this case ..a simple date change and save the sheet with the date used. OK, here's the problem. How do I create a running total that would track each job? I forgot to mention earlier that each daily time entry sheet is saved and named by the date for which it represents. The weekly time summary pivot table works fine....but it only gives me the grand total of hours worked for each day...not a running total summary. I can view the pivot tables and go to the calcualtor and add the hours up per job, but that's defeating the purpose. Anyway, I hope this is clear enough to at least get some responses. Then, maybe by then I'll have a better understanding how to ask the right questions.

Copy An Existing Formula Down Or To Create One For The Same Job

The difficulty is that I need to miss out 5 rows in between each paste but no matter what I try when copying it down, it throws itself out of numerical order. I have tried to type the formula manually for every row but its taking forever and is bound to go wrong at some point. I have attached a very small example to show what I mean  Imagin this example needing the formula to run down in order up to row 4000?

Calculating Number Of Days For Job Length Periods
I'm trying to calculate the length of a work order to develop an average and future proposal estimates. For example: Job received = A1 In work = B1 Job completed = C1 Total days to complete = D1 I know I can enter in D1 C1A1 and get the correct result but I want the field to calculate A1TODAY() until a completion date is entered. This would display the number of days the job has been in work until completed. Once completed use the C1 for calculation. Sorta like If(C1=">=0" then (A1Today()) else C1A1) I will then use conditional formatting with block colors to indicate whether it is a completed job or in work job.

IF Formula Created A Nonsubjective Job Evaluation Spreadsheet
I have created a nonsubjective job evaluation spreadsheet, which takes data obtained from a work daily of an individual and is implemented in my spreadsheet. The columns of areas to be evaluated will average each individuals performance by averaging the individual to the rest of his shifts performance and a point system has been established depending on their work level. The situation I'm running into is I'm using the formula below to establish my point system. In an effort to be fair in every way possible, should a particular column end up with all zeros "0" this would then become the average, which should provide the individuals in this group with three "3" points. My forumula as it is set up will now only give one "1" point, when it should be three. The point system works great other than this one particular problem, when everyone has a zero. I'd sure appreciate anyone's suggestion how I might be able to add one more IF statement to this existing formula. Note: I29 is the cell for this particular column that represents the average of the column with data in it. I28 is 10% above average, I27 is 20% above average, I30 is 10% below average and I31 is 20% below average. point system is 1 point for 20% below average, 2 points for 10% below average, 3 points for average, 4 points for 10% above average and 5 points for 20% above average. =IF(ISTEXT(I3),0,IF(I3="",0,IF(I3<=$I$31,1,IF(I3<=$I$30,2,IF(I3<=$I$29,3,IF(I3<$I$28,3,IF(I3>=$I$27, 5,IF(I3<$I$27,4))))))))

Calculating Cost Per Second
I'm trying to make a worksheet where I can calculate the cost of a mobile postpaid subscription. It is charged per minute and the cost differs depending on which of the 2 available networks the customer is calling to. The first 20 minutes are free, not depending on network. Edit: Charges to network A is 1,79, per minute after the first 20 minutes are spent. Charges to network B is 2,29, per minute after the first 20 minutes are spent. To sum up: 1. The customer makes a call. 2. If there there are available free minutes, these should be spent first. 3. The customer is charged per minute, depending on network called.

Problem  billing spreadsheet for prisoner fee. 1  8 hrs = $55 9  24 hrs = $55 + $65 or $120 Anything over 24 hrs  $65 for each additional (24 hrs) ($185) So if you were locked up for 6 hrs it is $55. If you were locked up for 18 hrs it is $120. If you were locked up for 28 hrs it is $185. And if you were locked up for 49 hrs it is $250. Cell F5 contains number of hours locked up  I would like cell I5 to calculate the cost of the stay. I am proud of myself for figuring out the date and time subtraction  but this part has me stumped.

Cost Average Effect
Example number 1: You invested 10.000 Dollar in the year 1985 into a tempelton fund and waited 20 years. Result can be seen at many forums and stock plattforms Example number 2: In 1985 you had no 10.000 Dollar, but only 100 Dollar a month. You invested this 100 Dollar each month for 20 years. How big will the difference be between example 1 and 2 ? *** Background. If a "share" will cost 100 Dollar, you will get 1 share for 100 Dollar. Next month share is down to 50 Dollar, you will get 2 shares for your monthly 100 Dollar. Next month share is up at 200 Dollar, you will get only a half share for your 100 Dollar. Its called cost average effect. Tool should allow "play arround", to simulate various scenarios, talking into account growth rate, time period, monthly investment, fluctuation of a theoretical share. Idealy we would love to " import" e.g. famous fund history (eg. Tempelton, Pioneer) etc. to see how investment would have developed when a steady monthly payment would have been made.

Time And Cost Calculations ..
I am compiling a simple worksheet that will keep an ongoing track of labour costs in a production environment. The objective is to end up with a labor cost "per unit" for packing punnets of soft fruit. The source data I have is; 1  Start time and end time of the job 2  Any breaks taken during the job 3  The number of staff it took to do it 4  The status of the staff (Supervisor, temp, etc) and their hourly pay rates 5  The number of punnets packed. With all of the above it should be a relatively simple exercise to calculate the cost per unit (and with a calculator is!). My problem appears to be that I am not formatting something correctly, because when I try to calculate the costs for the employees' my costs are obviously wrong. I have attached my early draft for reference, in the example shown I am showing that a supervisor earning £7.50 an hour worked for 1 hour 15 mins at a cost of £0.39

Calculating Cost Based On Several Factors
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 (override rate and override 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.

Cost Price Vs Quantity Discount

Manufacturing To Retail Cost Calculator
I am trying to make an EASY Manufacturing Cost to Retail pricing calculator. This calculator would have ability to include cost of goods, labor, markup etc of components manufactured and sold as retail products, example: small bookshelves versus large bookshelves or cabinets all have different materials (wood types, stain etc) in determining the final retail product costs that would reflect time of labor hours involved in producing to determine final retail costs. Should be simple in Excel 2000 (my version). I have the basic template created and have used Data Validation Drop Down Lists and utilized LOOKUP function. While my knowledge is limited in Excel, I am frustrated as how the LOOKUP function works, I can only get it to work where in the formula, the costs per unit are input manually, whereas I would prefer to have the data input automatically from columns of calculated wholesale cost plus markup per square foot data, ie: =lookup(A1, X1:X30, Y1:Y30) but get errors when doing this. Instead this works: =lookup(A1,{"pine", "oak", "birch"},{"3.99","7.87","5.15"}) and using this cell (A1) in my calculations for including the square foot costs in the final retail calculations. While this seems to work, it is not easily modifiable as costs change rapidly and would like to easily input the cost per square foot of the different woods in their own cells rather than in the formula calculation of the lookup. Hope that makes sense..... any suggestions? perhaps lookup is not the best function for what I am attempting?  sample file is attached, light green are notes of where my data is located.

Multiplying Cost By Variable Factors, Vlookup Not Working

On another sheet, I have a data extract including that code and a cost. In the latter sheet, I need to multiply cost by the appropriate factor based on the GL code  IF Code=X, then cost*factor. Should be simple, but I have too many codes for a nested IF statement. I also tried a VLOOKUP, but since the codes are numerical, Excel interprets them to be in the thousands, while my factors are 1.xxxxxxx, and since the data being looked up thereby appears smaller than the keys, VLOOKUP will only return #N/A or ?NAME, depending on whether I try to nest it in an IF or not. I also have several thousand records per month to which this needs to be applied, so going manual is not an option. The calculating is done in column E, the original cost is in column AB, the key (GL code) is in column R, and the GL code range with factors is on the !Factors sheet (column A=Code, B=Description, C=factor). *I'm running Excel 2003 on WinXP Pro

Column Title Lookup: Find The Lowest Cost
I have been assigned a task of finding the lowest cost of four possible solutions however I have quite an extensive list of items to work with. To make this easier, I need to be able to find the lowest cost in my row (which is not sorted by lowest to highest value) and return the column heading associated with that lowest cost.
