Calculate Percentage Difference Between Budget Versus Actual

May 6, 2014

Here's my example: We budgeted \$15,000 (cell C38) for tuition reimbursement and YTD have already paid out \$11,500 (cell B38).

I currently have the formula =100*B38/C38

This returns the answer \$76.67. When I format the column to percentage, it the returns the answer 7666.67%.

How do I get this to read as 76.67%???

Conditional Budget Difference And Percentage Formulas

Mar 16, 2014

In looking for examples of business budgets I found a sample spreadsheet that used these two conditional statements:

A) to calculate the difference between the Budget and Actual numbers: =IF(OR(B10,A1), B1-A1,) where B1 is Actual \$ and A1 is the budget \$.

B) to calculate the percentage (+ or -) =IF(A1,C1/A1,) where A1 is, again the budget, and C1 is the result of the difference calculated in A) above.

What is the advantage of these conditional formulas over the more straight forward B1-A1 and C1/A1

Show Budget VS Actual In Pivot Table

May 1, 2008

I have weekly budget report (for the entire year) that I put in a Pivot Table with approx 20 different row labels. The actual revenue numbers come only once a month (several different reports make up the actual revenue numbers). I need to put the actual numbers on the same row as the budget numbers and I can't figure it out.

For example, for the first three months of the year, I have the pivot table showing everything perfectly. In February, I get January's actual revenue numbers that now "replace" the budget numbers for January. If this was a regular table, I could easily overwrite these numbers, but with the pivot table, I can't get these two fields to line up. For now, I have the Actual Revenue numbers on the Rows above the Budget numbers for their respective months/quarters.

Forecast An Estimated Budget Based On Original Budget And Percent Complete

May 21, 2006

In the attached spreadsheet i have a budget amount, billed to date, %complete, %remaining and forecast figure. What i am trying to do is estimate the forecast spend vs the budget or billed to date and percent remaining. I am struggling with how to do this based on in some cases the budget is already overspent but the %complete is less than 100%. What i really want to do is create a forecast based on the billed to date or budget depending on which is greater and work out estimated spend based on whether the task is complete or there is still a % remaining.

Can use an icon set conditional format to solve the following -

if I have an order figure in A1 and a received figure in A2 I want to show a tick in A3 if the received figure is within 10% either side of the order figure.

Percentage Difference Between Two Values

Sep 15, 2009

I am trying to create a formula that can work out the % difference between two values. The formula I am using is:

=(B1-A1)/ABS(A1)

So, where

A1=1, B1=2, = 100%
A1=-1, B1=2, = 300%

This seems to work perfectly, apart from where there are zero numbers involved. The answers I want to have are as follows:

A1=0, B1=0, = 0%
A1=0, B1=-1, = -100%
A1=0, B1=1, = 100%
A1=-1, B1=0, = 100%
A1=1, B1=0, = -100%

Formatting Percentage With A Difference?

Nov 6, 2011

I was wonder if there is anyway in excel to do the following. I have a table that shows %'s,,, and I have formatted it to show 1 decimal place. Is there anyway to do it so that if the % is a whole number, IE 100% it shows just 100% and not 100.0%

So; basically, all %'s that aren't whole numbers will show 1 decimal place,, whole numbers to show NO decimal place.

I can see in excel a custom formatting under the Number tab,, but if this is where you do /can do it,, I'm not sure how.

Calculating Percentage Difference Between Cells

Dec 5, 2013

Formula "(Cell-Cell)/ABS(Cell)"

When calculating percentage difference do I always subtract the smaller number/cell from the larger number/cell, then divide by the smaller number/cell or vice versa? Maybe I am over thinking it, but it is confusing the heck out of me

I provided an example below to illustrate a spreadsheet I work on. The numbers go up and down. I want to know how I should go about setting up the formula. If I need to ensure the smaller number is always subtracted from the bigger number, it will require a lot of manual intervention on my part.

Row 3 is =(b2-b1)/ABS(b1)Row 4 is =(b2-b1)/ABS(b2)Row 5 is custom. I went through each cell and made sure the smaller number was being subtracted from the larger number, then divided by the smaller number

Display Popup When Percentage Difference Reached

Feb 16, 2008

I have an excel file that linked to an external feed that receives stock prices in real time. on the file i have the stock name, the price paid and the current price. I would like to have a popup that shows up whenever a stock price has a 15% or higher return. I would like the popup to show the stock name. I realise that conditional formatting would highlight whatever is over 15%, but the workbook has multiple worksheets and I would like it to popup even when i am on another worksheet.

Enclosed is a copy of the file (the actual file has many more sheets) : john.zip

Conditional Formatting Based On A Percentage Difference

Apr 3, 2009

Using conditional formatting i am trying to write a formula that changes colour on the percentage difference of another cell.

An example would be if cell A1 contained a target of 5% in cell A2 would be an actual. If cell A2 is equal to A1 or better then it would be green. If cell A2 was within 10% less of A1 (i.e 4.5%-4.99%) then amber and red for the target minus 10% (i.e <4.49%)

I want to do this as a conditional formatting formula as the target figure will change but 10% difference will remain the same.

Excel 2010 :: Percentage Difference From Calculated Or Max Dose?

May 11, 2014

Excel 2010 - Solver will NOT work with whole numbers and that is what I need (only whole numbers, i.e whole vials being used). So this is a drug/inventory problem. The drug is dosed as 25, 35,or 50 units/kg. Also a Max dose is reached with 100 kg. (this I can do). The trick is we want to use whole vial sizes and the vials come with varying amount of drug per vial (480-620 units/vial). We can enter our existing Inventory to get the exact units/vial and number of vials on hand. Now I need to figure out the best combination of vials in Inventory to use to get the closest to the dose needed. If Max dose is reached then the MOST we can go over the max dose is 5%. I'd like to see the percentage difference from the calculated or Max dose.

Calculate Until Difference Is Zero

Jul 24, 2014

I'm trying to automate the attached schedule so that the formulas in H stop increasing once the amount in column J equals zero. So far everything I've tried either gives me a circular reference error or ends up giving me the same result as if I depreciated the asset an additional month.

Calculate Date Difference

Apr 20, 2009

I request a help:

A1 = 01-Apr-2009
B1 = 02-Apr-2009
C1 = 03-Apr-2009
D1 = Blank
E1 = 05-Apr-2009

Calculate Difference In Dates

Jul 27, 2009

I need to calculate the amount of time between two dates, and show it in the number of hours and minutes. My dates are formatted to show the time in Zulu time. So 1406 = 2:06PM.

Here is what I have:

A1 = 6/4/08 1406Z
B1 = 6/5/08 0402Z

For this example, the formula should return a result of 13 hours and 58 minutes. With the result, there is no need to desingate Zulu time with a 'Z'. But I need the result in a format that will allow me to calculate an average for all my data.

Calculate Difference To Lowest

May 9, 2009

I'm looking for a macro or formula that can calculate the difference to the lowest of col C based on option in colB. See attached. I complete what it should look like in F. Basically, this can be done by sorting the data by colB and using this formual for every group. =C2-MIN(\$C\$2:\$C\$4). This is not ideal because I have many of these to do and you have to adjust the min range for every group. Plus group sizes will vary.

There has to be a better way. Ideally, I would not like to have to sort the data, unless a macro did it for me....

Trying To Calculate The Difference Between Two Dates

Sep 11, 2008

This is more of a query on date dif

I was trying to calculate the difference between two dates on excel

I had a look through the search message board and searched the web generally where I came across the datedif function

I had found that in order to get the number of years it was

=datedif(startdate,enddate,"Y")

for months same formula"YM" and for days use "MD" in place of "Y" in the original formula

My question is when using datedif to calculate the number of days between two days it initialy gave me the right answer

Number of days between 01/08/2008 - 22/08/2008 - Answer 21 days

Using date dif gave me 21 days but when i did

01/08/2008 - 01/09/2008 - this gave me 0

Am I entering the formula wrong or does datedif simply not pick the difference if the days havent changed even though the month has ?

I then found i could simply minus one from the other , which then had me asking what is the point of date dif
