Dec 25, 2013

Need to create year to date sales comparing 4 years month by month.

## Formula To Spread Costs Between Months And Years?

Dec 3, 2013

See attached. (I added in some arrows for the first month so it is easier to follow the logic)

I am working with monthly revenues. Revenues are earned in a specific month but only a % is received in that month and over the next 4 months. I need a formula that will spread these revenues earned in 1 month over the next 4 months.

Currently, I have a complex Index/Match formula which works until September. September, October, November, and December do not work correctly because once the months roll over from month 12 (December) back down to month 1 (January), my formula cannot recognize the range.

Essentially, I need the formula to return the correct amount that is being paid, even across different years.

I don't know if my formula can be modified or a new formula would be more efficient.

May 3, 2008

I am trying to get mmm-yy date format for the next 2 consecutive months from now. I used the following code for that reason, but I am not getting.

strDate = Format(DateAdd("m", 1, Date), "mmm-yy")

strDate = Format(DateAdd("m", 2, Date), "mmm-yy")

strDate = Format(DateAdd("m", 0, Date), "mmm-yy")

## IF Date Formula: IF Formula, That States If A Date Is More Than A Month After The Date In The Cell Then It Is Timely

Jun 2, 2006

I need an IF formula, that states if a date is more than a month after the date in the cell then it is timely and if it isn't then it is not timely. For example the date in A1 is 12/11/05, if the cell is A2 is 13/12/05 (or any date after that) then A3 should read Not Timely, if A2 is 12/12/05 (or any date before that, including a date before the date in A1) then A3 should read Timely. Is there any way to do this?? At the moment I am having to go through manually and put in either Timely or Not Timely.

## Conditional Sum: Return The Latest Date Before The Stock Turns To Be Greater Than The Value In Cell D3

Oct 9, 2008

In the attached workbook - the stock Inventory is increased, every second day, by the value shown in cells of column A. Column B displays the date of the update. I'm looking for a Formula (might be an Array Formula) that will return the latest date before the stock turns to be greater than the value in cell D3. I managed to solve it, in cell F3, but with the help column C.

## Formula Turns Cell To Text Format

May 7, 2007

I have a workbook with two worksheets. I added a formula to the first worksheet
= COUNTIF(Scorecard!H3,"K"). It works fine when I add another COUNTIF that references another column (baseball fans may realize I'm counting total strikeouts for a batter): =COUNTIF(Scorecard!H3,"K")+COUNTIF(Scorecard!L3,"K") However, when I try to expand this to cover more columns, =COUNTIF(Scorecard!H3,"K")+COUNTIF(Scorecard!L3,"K")+COUNTIF(Scorecard!P3,"K")

Excel automatically changes the format of this cell to "Text" and it shows the formula as text instead of calculating it. What could be wrong here? Excel's documentation is woefully inadequate for cases like this. Is there an undocumented limit on how many times I can add COUNTIFs together?

## Months To Years Conversion?

Apr 4, 2012

I have been trying to figure out a formula to convert the amount of months in a certain cell to years.

I have come up with:

=INT(E29/12)&" years "&MOD(E29,12) & " months"

The problem is it comes up with 2 years 3.37063951499227 months

How I change it to come up with 2.4 months, round it to the highest number instead of loads of decimal places? I have tried change cell E29 do 0 decimal places but it doesn't work.

## Calculating Years And Months With Blanks

Jan 8, 2014

Was needing to calculate years and months returning it such as 2.10 if 2 years and 10 months.

And also if left blank would not return any value. (There might not be a date yet in H3 in some cells.)

G3 thru G1000 has the hire dates. H3 thru H1000 will be the cell for the formula.

## Calculate Day, Months & Years Between Dates

Dec 20, 2006

I have two columns with dates (and times) in that I am trying to define how many days, hrs and mins have elapsed i.e. A1 has 12/12/06 21:00, B1 has 17/12/06 21:00. C1 has B1-A1 and is custom formatted to show as dd"days" hh"hrs" mm"mins". In this case it will therefore show as 5days 0hrs 0mins. Which is correct.

However, if more than 1month has elapsed then the format m"m" d"days" h"hrs" m"mins" does not work. For example 17/03/06 03:00 to 20/12/06 07:00 shows as 10m 4days 4hrs 00min, which it clearly isn't.

I know the reason it does this is because it calculates the difference between the two times and adds that to it's 0 value, which in my format is 01/01/1900 00:00. therefore when it adds 277days (the answer) it becomes 04/10/1900 04:00, so my formatting is just calling the month value ('10') and the day value ('4').

I understand the reason it does this, 277 days on from 01/01/1900 is indeed Oct 4th, but 277 days on from 17/03/06 is not 10months and 4 days as there are different length months in between. It also seems to add a month on, possibly because the format for 'months' is between 1 & 12 and therefore cannot begin at 0?

Does anyone know if it's possible to force excel to work out the correct number of months and days have elapsed between two dates and not apply it to 01/01/1900? Or any other possible solution, maybe with a different custom format?

## Calculating Years / Months / Days Between Two Dates?

Oct 17, 2009

my spreadsheet is setup with two dates: A date for when someone joins our group A date for when they are released/leave

I want to be able to see exactly how many years/months/days transpired between these two dates. I have tried lots of different formulas with no success.

## Summing Values For Specific Months And Years?

Mar 27, 2014

I will set a base example first:

9 Nov 2012 Apple 5
12 Dec 2012 Apple 3
14 January 2013 Banana 8
17 January 2013 Apple 6
20 January 2014 Apple 3

I would like a sumifs formula that will only add the results for Apple - as follows:

Nov 2012 5
Dec 2012 3
Jan 2013 6 (i.e. does not include Banana - and also does not include Jan 14 Apple)

Although I have experience with sumifs I have not been able to use the correct syntax to identify the month AND year.

Ultimately I want to look through many hundreds of dates, and add anything that fits two criteria - 1) a 'name' criteria, and 2) it falls within a certainly month and year.

## Calculate Averages Of Individual Months Over 40 Years

Jan 5, 2012

I have a large sheet of daily river flows and precipitation amounts, over 40+ years.

I want to calculate the average flows in each month of each year (ie 11/1968, 12/1968, 1/1969 etc). Dates are in Col A, flows in Col D.

How to average a particular month over all years like so:

{=AVERAGE(IF(MONTH(A2:A15282)=1,D2:D15282))}

But I don't know how to average per month of each year, or how to make a formula that will allow me to quickly calculate the averages of 100s of months.

## Getting Total Months In Between Dates (disregarding Years)

Dec 1, 2013

ith the example below, i am having a problem with the calculation of Total Month. If i put Dec 31 2012 in A2 the total month is 10 BUT if I change the A2 to Dec 30, 2012 the total month is 11.

## Conditional Formatting - Highlight Yellow If Cell Is Keyed In Instead Of Formula

Dec 17, 2012

I have a file where the cells are all formulas.

Employees are able to key in a number instead of using the number derived from the formula.

I want the cell to use conditional formatting without the use of macros, so it will highlight yellow if the cell is keyed in instead of a formula.

Is this possible? I have tried numerous things, but none seem to work.

Example:

Cell A6 has the number 24,248 derived from a formula.

Employee thinks the number should be 30,000 and keys that number in.

If it is 24,248, I want the number to have no fill, but if it is a keyed in number, I want it to be highlighted.
