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?

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?

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.

Least Cost Routing
im working on a VoIP company, and having a hard time to figure out a result on a little time. the problem is finding a "least cost routing" wherein you will find the cheaper to higher price, and putting the results on a designated columns: I am including an image, sorry if the image seems to be heavy and large: as you can see: Column C contains the sale rate for the client, while Columns D to I, are the buy rates from our source carriers. While the columns K to P, are the columns where should one source carrier should be fitted base on the buy rates, that is best fitted to the sale rate. Red marks=are not suitable or nonprofitable buy rate for the sale rate. Sorry for the bad english, but i hope you get what i mean. this is only a sample from our Internal data.

Calculating Cost
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 Vs Units Graph
I'm wondering how to display the following cost model on a graph (this is a piecewiselinear cost model for some production company): Cost per unit for 010 units: $1 Cost per unit for 1120 units: $3 Cost per unit for 2130 units: $5 Cost per unit for 3140 units: $8 Fixed cost: $100 (this is regardless of the number of units produced) Basically I'm looking to construct a cost vs units graph.

Calculate X Percentage Of Cost
I am trying to create a simple formula to extract cost from a total that includes both cost and and a percentage for maintanance. Assume $100, 10% of which is maintenance the remainder is cost. If I just subtract 10% from $100 I get $90, however 10% of $90 is $9 which equals $99.

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
I'm trying to work out how to get a spreadsheet to calculate when it works out cheaper to buy more of something, due to quantity price breaks, than less... e.g. 110 are £12.50 each, but 1020 are £10 each and 2030 are £8.75 each.. so it's as cheap to buy 10 (10x10=100) as it is 8 (8x12.50=100) and cheaper to but 10 (100) than it is to buy 9 (112.50) than 10... but there are similar price breaks at 20, 50 +

Way To Check Whether Any Cost Centre Has Been Missed Out ...
I attached a workbook and it shows data in row 2  960. and in cells BA1574 BM1604 are the summary by using 'sum if' function. As you can see, row 160 countercheck the results and it shows differences. So my questions are 1) any formula that i can use to ensure all cost centres are taken up in Col AZ1574  AZ1604? I am sure that i have missed something out. 2) My goal is to summarise the total of each cost centre. Is there other options to reach this goal apart from using 'sum if' function? I would like to learn something new.

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.

>>> Finding Lowest Cost/Vendor
I need to find the lowest price, mark it up and designate which vendor it’s from so the CSR knows which one to quote back to the customer. Besides going through it line by line, is there a way to do this? It seems like there could be a formula where it pulls the lowest of the 3 prices and vendor name into a new “price” and “vendor” columns and then I can go through and mark it up. Here’s a small sample of what the sheet looks like: Item #Desc V1 V1 CostV2V2 CostV3V3 Cost 123456brush Advance 2.56Weiler5.65Osborn3.25

Calculating Total From Number Of Minutes And Cost P/m
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 will only have maybe 12 accounts and want to keep track of hand written invoices and payments. Here's what I would like: I return to my office, click on a tab for an account, enter the date and amount of an invoice in a debit column for that account. When payment is made, enter the amount received in the credit column. Having a running total in the balance column. A monthly statement option would be nice, but not necessary. I have searched for templates of general ledgers and get results with budgets, projects . . . just too complex for my needs now.

Multiplying Cost By Variable Factors, Vlookup Not Working
I have an Excel 2003 situation I cannot resolve. In one workbook, I have a table of multiplication factors based on a numerical general ledger code. 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

Since the unit sold may included units bought at different time and different price, so I have to first exhaust the first lot that I purchase before moving into second lot, and so on and so for. Column G  J are for illustration. I highlighted K10, K11 and K12 are book cost that I want to calculate. Instead of manually separating out units in each lot previously bought. Is there an automatic way? I would not mind adding new columns to ease calculation.

Add Condition To Simple Formula
Using Excel 2003. I have a very basic SUM formula I am using to show how many forms are still inhouse. Pretty simple. Column D is how many came in. Column F is how many were completed. Column E is what is left. To get the daily count I take the previous day's Column E, add to today's Column D and subtract today's Column F. =(E2+D3F3) Puts the results in E3. This formula is copied on down the worksheet which results in: =(E3+D4F4), with the results in E4. And so on down Column E. The problem is that if there is no data entered in Column D or F, the results from E are carried (copied?) as far down as the forumla. i.e., if today's column E results in 4, then that is displayed for as far down as I have copied the formula. What I'd like to do is set the formula so that if there is no data in columns E or F, then there is nothing displayed in Column E.
