# Calculating Sales Price

Jul 18, 2008
using Excel 2002 on XP.

My partner and I are selling products. He gets 5% of the sales price, then I get the rest. But I want to make at least $2 on every sale. So, let's say the item cost us $50. If he wants 5% off the top, and I want at least $2, how do we calculate what to sell it for?

I tried the following, but it didn't work:

$50 (cost)

+ $2 (my profit)

+ 5% (partner's profit)

------

$54.60 (sales price)

It doesn't work because I end up with $1.87.

$54.60 (sales price)

- 5% (partner's profit)

- 50 (cost)

------

$1.87 (my profit)

I've tried other things, but I always end up under $2. Is it possible to calculate this? or do I need to have a percentage for myself? If Excel can't do it, do you know of any calculators out there than can?

In my spreadsheet, I have data for each sale in each row. Column C is the buy price, and column D is the sell price. I need column C to be subtracted from column D to get the profit into column E so that I can AutoSUM any cells in column E for total profit over any time period. The problem I'm having is that in columns C and D, I have either a dollar sign in front, or the letter m following without a space (ie $45.00 or 150m). Many cells in column C also contain another word following the buy price, and many cells in column D have a date following the sell price (ie $32.00 12/11 or 42m buyout).

Examples of how my spreadsheet looks:

A1: 12/13/12 B1: Item #1 C1: 100m D1: 152m

A2: 12/14/12 B2: Item #2 C2: $20.00 D2: $35.00

A3: 12/15/12 B3: Item #3 C3: 90m bid D3: 120m 12/16

So looking at my example above, I would need cell E1 to automatically show "52m", cell E2 "$15.00", and cell E3 "30m"

How I can get a formula for all of column E that will give me my profit for both $ and "m" for each item (row). I have tried the SUM function but just keep getting the #VALUE! error, it does not ignore the text like many people say it should.

I'm using a spread sheet to determine what I should charge customers. I want to make at least $300 profit on every job. If my profit is not at least $300 then I must up my price until profit reaches $300. Currently I'm manually adding a percentage (Factor) to the original price until I reach $300 profit. In the image below:

A is the original price

B is the factor by which I multiply the original price to increase it

C is the new figure which is reached after multiplying (1+B2)*A2

D is the costs related to that job (I enter these manually on a separate sheet within the workbook)

E if the profit (C-D)

I use a factor in B because when I increase the price, then I have to increase several parts of the job by the same percentage so I multiply each part by this factor to increase the price of each by the same percentage.

Now what I would like to do is if E2.

I want to set up an Excel spread sheet where I can put my total number of sales appointments for the month and the percentage of those I closed. I've done this before, but for the life of me I can't remember the formula I used & I know it's a very simple one! I'm using Office 2007.

I have a very large spreadsheet with daily sales for over 140 different items, over the past 2 years.

This is how my data looks like:

ITEM NAME 4/1/12 4/2/12 4/3/12 etc

item1 10 15 500

item2 5 0 3

item3 0 0 5

etc

I'm trying to build a formula that allows me to see which item is the highest trending over a period of time I input.

I figured out the way how to select data between specific Start and End dates, but don't know how to interpret "trending" in a formula.

I was thinking maybe highest jump from beginning to end of interval, but what if it's a new item that was launched halfway through the interval and does poorly throughout, that would still be "trending" under that rationale....

I have sales numbers which is in the form of a running total dollar amount and I would like to keep track of the average increase in dollars.

So basiclly if the Jan total is $100 in column a, the Feb total is $150 in column b, and the March total is $200 in column c. I would like a formula that will tell me that the average increase in dollars is $50.

I have an excel sheet which has 70 sheets in it...All of them are numbered but not in a sequential manner (eg : 210,211,201,202,215 etc..).The numbering is nothing but the sales order number....

All the sheets have same data (i.e Column A contains Product Sold, Column B contains Sale Value)...The thing is i want to consolidate all the data in sales order number wise. i.e.

Column A Column B

201 $200

202 $300

203 $450

I am trying to determine the top contributors to 50% of sales based on cumulative percent of sales (see attached file). I can determine if percent of sales is less than 50%, but I need to include the person that pushes the group of top performers over the 50% mark.

I have a sales level that I need to track...My rolling 12 months' sales must be $85,000 and my currently monthly sales must be $7,000. I have a sheet that tracks the $85,000 and tells me what I need to achieve that, but I haven't figured out how to include the $7,000 monthly minimum....

The chart below is what I have. So for example, this month it's telling me I only need to sell another 3016.46 to hit the $85,000 rolling 12, but I actually need to hit $4821.79 to meet the $7k minimum.

Actual Rolling 12 Goal

Sep 2012 5,367.24 73,663.30

Oct 2012 5,649.93 69,496.28

Nov 2012 14,163.38 73,451.30 [code]....

I need J22 to multiply based on years in B22 AND increase 5% for each of those years (compounding) after two years (excludes year 1 from 5% increase). In addition the cell needs to remain blank if D22 is blank. B22 = 1, then the stockprice needs to remain the same, and only increase by 5% after year 1.

Currently...

B22 = a number of years indicated by the formula: =IF(A22="","",DATEDIF(A22,I3,"y"))

J22 =IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(D22,stockprices,2,FALSE)),"",VLOOKUP(D22,stockprices,2,FALSE))

Example:

If J22 stockprice lookup is $1000.00, and the number of years listed in B22 is 6, then the reported value in J22 needs to be $1494.40.

I have calculated the implied volatility for different single options using the newton raphson method. But, I also need to calculate the implied volatility which minimizes the sum of squared differences between the observed market price and the model price for each day. I guess one needs to use vectors (jacobian matrix) to do this, but I do not know how to expand the code to be able to do this. Anyone have any idea how this can be done? I have attached the [code] I have used to calculate the implied volatility for one option.

I have created a chart on excel for us to track daily sales but also to figure sales tax so we know what to send the IRS each month. We have been figuring the sales tax ourselves and

filling in the chart on excel but I would like to create a formula that

automatically does it for me based on total sales.

The analysis basically has 2 data components to it:

The 1st part, is a basic transaction list of shopping items bought through the year. Each transaction's shopping item also has the quantity of that item purchased at that time.

The 2nd part, is a pricing sheet for all the different types of shopping items. The pricing sheet has different prices for different quantities at which the item is purchased.

What I am trying to do is to find the relevant price for shopping item, which depends on not only what the item is, but also the quantity. In point form, it should follow the logic below:

1) Identify the item in the shopping list (worksheet 1) from the list of prices (worksheet 2)

2) Find quantity in the prices worksheet that is closest to the quantity in the shopping list (i.e. where the difference between the quantity on transaction list and the quantity on the pricing sheet is the least)

3) Pull the price for this "closest quantity"

I have uploaded a worksheet showing the structure of that data.

Is there some VB code I need to do this, or can it just be a few simple formulas?

I cannot solve with Excel 2010 and I have searched all over for the answer.

I have sales data that is approximately daily and would like to count the monthly data and summarize it as an average for the month in a separate column.

For example, I would like to turn this:

3/2/2005 $xxxx

3/5/2005 $xxxx

3/20/2005 $xxxx

4/2/2005 $xxxx

4/10/2005 $xxxx

Into this:

March 2005- $xxxx (monthly average)

April 2005- $xxxx (monthly average)

I have a feeling some 'countif' formula would work but I am not sure how to do this.

In cells A4 to A54, their names are displayed.

In cells I4 to I54, their total sales are displayed.

Starting in cell B59 and C59 I'd like to display their name and sales respectively.

Also in column I I'd have a second value which would be a total of each department. Would it be possible to leave this data out of the formula? No big deal if I have to put that value in the next column.

I need to copy the values of a range on the weekly sales worksheet to the monthly sales worksheet. The last column is the total on the weekly sales. Part of the heading of the total column is the week ending date (e.g. 10/17/2009. On the Monthly Sales I have the months in columns by week ending (e.g. 10/17/2009).

Range I4:I28 to the monthly sales worksheet by date.

All data is located within one book. I have two sheets with material codes in each sheet which include pricing (existing and current)

Sheet1 (has existing material codes plus existing pricing) Has about 1200 lines

Sheet2 (has current material codes plus current pricing), has about 36000 lines

I need to cross check if the material code (taken from sheet1) are still available in sheet2, and if they are, copy the current price back to sheet1. The current price needs to be pasted back into sheet1 (next to the existing price). If the material code doesn't exist (for whatever reason, in sheet2), the program needs to move onto the next line and leave the current price for that material code blank. The program should finish once all the lines in sheet1 are completed. I have attached a sample of what I'm trying to do,

I have have a large array of prices (across rows) and am looking for the closest price to match a price that I have been provided with. It's a basic benchmarking exercise on a row by row basis....and the price can be positive or negative. Is there a clean way to reference the closest price?

I have come across a fair amount of solutions, but none worked optimally - particularly the =INDEX(Data,MATCH(MIN(ABS(Data-Target)),ABS(Data-Target),0)) approach....it just didn't work for some lines, and only worked for values less than source price in other instances.

I would also like to reference the source on the next column.

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.

I have one sheet that shows a list of all vehicle sales for a month: with a customer column and a salesperson column and a gross profit column. I would like to give a printout to each salesperson from a different sheet that only shows that salespersons transactions on it. Can excel parse that information out and list it in order row by row showing each sale for just one salesperson per sheet?

I have a unit price and a quantity. I want to be able to take the sum of the extended price without having to add a column for extended price. I don't want to just hide it, either.

I have data for average turnover per hour of a business and have fitted it to a polynomial (order 6) trendline. So I have for example, running along the x-axis i have 8am-9am, 9am-10am, 10am-11am etc and on the y-axis the average turnover for the relevant hour.

What I would like to be able to do is use the trendline's formula to be able to predict sales for any given day. So if I were to enter the first few hours of turnover on any given day, I would like excel to predict the rest of the day's turnover based on the trendline.

I want is for the the cover sheet to provide a simplified version of the price list for people to use that will auto complete price to customer once product has been selected.

- how do I create a sublist? so if a user selects a product group from a drop down list in cell b1 then cell b2 will automatically display only the items from that groups subset.

- how do I link prices? If a user selects data from a drop down menu in b2, is it possible to display the price for that item in cell b3?

I'm stumped on what I know is a pretty basic problem. Maybe i'm just trying to over think it.

I have a table of sales data...One field is the date it was sold, one field is the amount it sold for. The date field isn't in order and it contains dates over the past 12 months. I need a way to total the amount of sales in each month and not through a pivot table. I am able to count how many entries there are, but I can't find a easy way to do a count of how much was sold in each month.
