This is the Case:

I Produce something with a €2000 cost price. this is variable.

I Sell it for lets say € 2500,- to someone this is also a variable.

That's makes a Profit of € 500,- on the sale. This is 125% revenue

Until here, no problem using a spreadsheet. but now the difficult part.

I have to split of the 25% margin over 2 persons. This has to be done as follow:

a. The first slice is 2,25 for Mr A

b. The second slice is 15,00 for MR B

c. The Third Slice is 2,75 for mr A

This divides 20 of the 25 % over 2 persons. Still 5% margin remains

The last 5 is devided as follow:

d. 85% for MR A

e. 15% for MR B

So in this case:

MR A receives: a:€45 + c:€55+ d:€85 = €185,-

MR B receives: b:€250 + e:€15 = €265,-

The tricky part is when the margin is less than 20%.

for example; If the margin is 14%. than only slice a. and a part of slice b. an be paid off. so in that case;

MR A receives: a:€45 + c:€0+ d:€0 = €45,-

MR B receives: b:€230 + e:€0 = €230,-

Any formula which calculates the revenue for MR A and B automatically based on only the cost and selling price.

A B

1 Cost price - €2000

2 Selling Price - €2500

3 MR A - €185,-

4 MR B -€265,-

I have a price sheet for my store in Excel. I want to make the spreadsheet easy for my sales people to use to calculate differing profit levels. I'd like to embed a drop down box at the top (I can do that part) that they can select, say, 10%...20%...30% markup. I know how to do that basic formula. I don't understand how to link that formula to a number selected in a drop down box. I don't know how to make the prices change based on the value selected in the drop down box. I can't do vlookup because it's about 1500 lines long. Also, it doesn't have to be drop down box based--that's just the idea in my head. I tried just making a macro that would run when they hit the button, but when the macro runs it switches the focus back to the top, very annoying if you were looking at prices on cell D811.

I am looking for a formula which will calculate a sell price with 20% profit after taxes and costs. I need it to factor in a fixed shipping cost (eg £10), a 7.5% Amazon fee of the sell price, then 20% tax of the sell price. I currently have a formula which essentially does this but as I'm not good with Excel it requires me to input all the values every time which is not practical considering our large inventory.

I don't want to appear too expensive or give my products away. If I have a part that costs me £20.00 plus vat i.e £24.00. I have to include carriage £5.00 plus vat i.e £6.00. Ebay fees for car parts including PayPal is 10%. How much would I charge to retain 20% percent after all fees and charges and what formula would I use to make the calculator.

Is there an excel formula that can calculate a proposed selling price by entering a desired profit margin percentage and knowing the cost of goods sold?

I know that gross profit is calcualted by subtracting the cost of goods sold from the selling price and that the gross profit margin is calculated by dividing gross profit by the selling price..but not coming up with a way to back out a selling price by just knowing the cost of goods sold and entering a desire gross profit margin?

seeattached data set.

Contract Item

Gross Profit

GP %

[Code]....

It is Gross Profit in Dollars and % for a particular project. Each row is a contract Item. The Overall Gross Profit for the month in dollars is 34,114.86 In preparing a short commentary to discuss this 34,114.86 I need to discuss atleast some contract items. If there were no negative results I have often in the past simply written. The top 5contributors to this Gross Profit were contract items 1 -6, out of 42, delivering 80% of the result. I might also go into what actually those contract items were and why they presented such a decent Gross Margin, ie. Costs came in well under budget(estimate). But with negative results, the bottom 4 contract items represent a large dollar loss of-34k which is 100% basically of the Gross Profit itself. If these had even just broken even we would have a GP double the current amount. So they obviously deserve as much comment.

Q1

In excel orsimilarly in say Crystal Reports what is a good way of further sorting these 42records either in a table or chart, whereby say the top 80% contract items that had a major impact on the gross profit are shown and the rest hidden. Ie. All thelittle sub 1000 or sub -1000 amounts.

Q2

How wouldother people here write a commentary on this data set? Can you script something to illustrate?

I put my margin in G6 of the data sheet and the cost are the numbers on the Mail Rates sheet.

cost/(1-G6) and then round result up to next .25

=VLOOKUP(Calculator!E6,'Mail Rates'!A2:D32,Calculator!D6+1,FALSE)

I am using the vlookup above to bring the mail rates to a calculator. I want to add a margin to the mail rates before they reach the calculator.

The margin amount is in G6 of the "data" sheet and the margin formula is "mail rate"/(1-G6)

I would then like to round the result up to the next .25 dollar

I'm trying to build a formula to form a price-list. I have some basic prices from a supplier and want to build my prices with a simple rule: the higher the basic price is (column A), the lower my profit margin (in %) should be (column B). Example:

Basic value is $50, my price is $75 (50% margin)

Basic value is $100, my price is $130 (30% margin)

Basic value is $150, my price is $172,5 (15% margin)

And so on...

I forgot most of what I've learned on Excel at my university (long time ago...), so I tried to do it by using simple thresholds, with "if" function:

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.

So I can easily put together a formula that maintains a consistent markup price across varying costs. Is there a formula that will give me a consistent gross margin % as I drag down a series of costs?

So if the cost is 158 a 42% mark up would be 224.36 but the Gross Margin % is only 29.58. I want to be able to hit a 42% mark up across the board.

I'm trying to have a macro write down an array formula, but when I hit ctrl+shift+enter, the recorder says it can't record. If I write in the macro ...FormulaR1C1 = {=...} then I get the formula as a text. Is there a way to tell the macro that a formula should be entered as an array formula?

I basicaly need to look down column Q8 to Q52 for the falue "C19"

If that value is present - Then I need to look up the value of associated

with what is in its respective cell in column O8 to O52.

Then add them all together.

I have the formula that follows and it works, however it is huge. I have to repeat the IF,Vlookup 44 times. Just wondering if there is a better way.

Here is the formula I am using.

=SUM((IF(Q8="C19",(VLOOKUP(O8,clusterequipmentvalues,2,FALSE)),0)),

(IF(Q9="C19",(VLOOKUP(O9,clusterequipmentvalues,2,FALSE)),0)),

(IF(Q10="C19",(VLOOKUP(O10,clusterequipmentvalues,2,FALSE)),0)),

(IF(Q11="C19",(VLOOKUP(O11,clusterequipmentvalues,2,FALSE)),0)),

(IF(Q12="C19",(VLOOKUP(O12,clusterequipmentvalues,2,FALSE)),0)),

.... all the way to C52.

1. He must have done Rape OR Murder

AND

2. His Age should be >30

AND

3. His Ratings should be>8

It should throw 22 years in the Punishment column only if the above conditions are met otherwise it should be Nil.

I'm looking to write a nested IF formula which will be dependant on certain cells that have errors in them (because those error cells have a formula in them which can't formulate becuase the numbers needed for that formula haven't been entered yet).

For example.

Cell A1=#DIV/0!. Cell B1=5.

In cell C1 I want to calculate the average between A1 & B1, but there is an error in A1.

I'm trying to figure out how to make a formula which ignores an error and gives me the value in the cell which doesn't have an error. But I also need it to calculate the average if both cells have a value in it.

I have a sum field in excel which contains the formula to compute sum of certain cells. For eg. Cell C1 has value (C2+C4).

I have written a vba code to find cells whose value are to be included in the sum field (variables Lrow1,Lrow2 and Lcolumn1,Lcolumn2 contains the row and column number respectively). These cells may differ each time vba code runs. Can I write formula in the sum field based on Lrow and Lcolumn variables.

I thought that a nested if is what I needed, but now I don't know what I need I have explained in greater detail within my sample that's attached. Quote:....

I don't know how to write a function for what I need. Right now I have a function that says '= if $b7=0,0,if($d7>$d5,-1,1)), but I've found a problem. If there's more than one zero it throws off what I'm doing. I need a function that will ignore any zeros within column D and use the second to last number. For example:

The formula in E12 should read '=if($B12=0,0,if($D12>$D8,-1,1))

The formula in E13 should read '=if($b13=0,0,if($D13>$D9,-1,1))

The formula in E20 should read '=if($b20=0,0 ,if($d20>$d12,-1,1))

I just don't know how to write this so that it will go back to the second to last number other than zero.

I have a spreadsheet. In this sheet the data is added daily so one column is increased everyday. The rows may also be increased. What I am trying to do is to sum the data in each row for a range of first cell in the row to the last non empty cell in that row and this has to be done for all the rows. So I thought the for loop would be useful for such requirement and I tried to write the following code. But unable to write the sum formula in the last empty cell in a row and I get the value error. The code is as follows.....

Sub sum_on_LastEmptyCell()

'find the last empty row in column A

lrow = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("sheet1").Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row + 1

'find the last empty column in a row

[Code] ........

Though one of my friend told that it can be done with "with and end with block but I am not aware of with and end with block.

It would be better if you tell me that how can I put the sum formula in my code. How can I use variables which return the row number and the column number in the sum range within the For loop because I want to put If Else condition for the calculations within the For loop i.e. if certain condition is true then I want this calculation to take place otherwise do something else. Moreover it will be easier for me to understand. Because I can use different formula based on different cells as well. Is there any way to do this?

I've got a "Date" Column which has every day of every month, and next to that several columns with different types of data to correspond to a particular date.

To simplify this (because there are TONS of dates), I've made another "Date" column that displays only every 5th day. Now what I'd like to do of course is average the corresponding data over five days.

I don't know how to write a single formula that I can copy down that will do this.

I've attached a sample spreadsheet with only one month's data, the stuff I need a formula / code for is in red
