# Looking For The Closest Price To A Reference Price

Feb 12, 2010
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.

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.

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?

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'm using Excel 2010 on a Windows 7 machine.

I have one sheet with a large list of dates and total prices.

I have a second sheet with a list of dates and unit prices.

I want to divide the total price in my first list by the unit price on my second list.

I want to somehow point Excel to the date in the first list, and then lookup the corresponding date in the second list to use the correct unit price.

My thoughts thus far have been along using VLOOKUP with WEEKNUM and YEAR but I've been unsuccessful.

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.

Example attached.

I have a task to rank the stocks from the highest price to the lowest price. I've made a template and managed to get the ranking right. I used the LARGE() function.

But now the difficulty is to get the 'Stock name' related to the ranked price. I may do it with the MATCH() function. But the problem is there is an equal number 15%.

Can you have a look at the example attached here?

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?

I need to index given :-

My ranges are named Width and drop and List. Rules are anything above largest drop/width must return 0. anything below lowest width/drop will be the lowest listed

anything inbetween will choose the value >= to the value. lookup is returning the closest, and my other formula fell foul of nesting, i am working in 2007 but it is targeted at XP/2002.

I get a price list from my distributor, my scale I use for my store is anything below $10 (from my distributor price) gets 30% markup, then anything above $10 gets 20% markup. How would I be able to function this into the list I receive in excel so I can export the prices directly to my store of what the prices should be in my store. Also it would be a plus if at the end I can get it to end in 99 cents. Thank you look forward to your response! I am using Excel 2003

I have a price table with about 70,000 line items (some lines are duplicates).

There are about 12 columns each with different qualities such as item name, size, thickness, price and etc.

I've been building this table in excel and just importing it into Access for the time being.

When a customer sends me an order, I'd like to be able to look up the items in my price table (matching across multiple columns) and automatically return the price for each item.

So far, I've been using the following formula....

=LOOKUP(2,1/($A$1:$A$60000=D1),$B$1:$B$60000)

With A5:A60000 = price list concatenate so all columns in 1

D1 = item I'm searching for

B1:B60000 = prices for items

The only thing is that this is very labor intensive.

The only thing is my customers will typically submit an order and it is NOT in the same format as I need it to be.

So it's very labor intensive and I spend hours just editing their order in a spreadsheet so that it follows the format I need it to.

I have a price list with part numbers in Column E and prices in Column C. I want to update the prices from a master list that has part numbers in Column D and prices in Column H and then make only the updated prices bold.

Currently the master list is in a different workbook, but if I need to, I can copy and past the master sheet into the same workbook as the sheet I want to update.

I have a list of items that each one has starting price, demands and current price. Current price changes by demands according to pre determined scale. Demands values are entered manually by user. I’m looking for a formula that will calculate current price automatically according to the scale & demands. I cannot know what will be the amount of demands (it could be 0 or 5000...) but I do know that demands are sequential integer numbers, positive or negative. I also don’t want it to exceed the minimum and maximum value that determine by user. I think the attached file will explain well than what I’m writing.

I want to have them in order of shortest price (favourite) first with the relevant horse's name in the adjacent column. I have just discovered vlookup which seemed perfect - until I discovered that when there are two or more identical prices it only returns the 1st horses name.

Is there any way I can use vlookup to do this (with more than one identical value)

the rate and inventory management system my hotel uses rounds up to the next .95 currently. Most rates are based upon a 'Rack Rate' in the form of a discount percentage. So, if the Rack Rate is $129.95 and the AAA discount is 20%, the resulting $103.96 rate is rounded up to $104.95. I'm trying to fix my spreadsheet to account for the various rates and discount percentages of several different types of discounts.

I've tried a couple rounding methods:

=ROUNDUP(B$30*(1-B32),0)+0.95 which returns the correct value only when the value to the right of the decimal point is .96-.99

=ROUNDDOWN(B$30*(1-B32),0)+0.95 which returns the correct value only when the value to the right of the decimal point is .00-.95

=CEILING((B$30*(1-B32)),0.95) which returns some odd bits, sich as .85 and .50

So, is there a way to get Excel to shift the rounding base point from zero to .95? Or some other way to accomplish this?

I'm trying to figure out a way of showing a price range on lots of different products. My spreadsheet is set out as follows(sorted by price ascending):

column A Column B

Product1 $1.99

Product1 $2.43

Product1 $3.01

Product2 $21.01

Product2 $23.98

I want to be able to summarise the product 1 price range as $1.99-$3.01 and product 2 as £21.01-$23.98. Is it possible somehow to concatenate the price from the first and last occurence of each product in column A?

I have around 150 separate price list files and i would like to create a macro to findformat currency then copy 1.05 and use Edit | Paste Special (value, multiply)...... then round up or down to nearest cents .567 would roundup to .57

The findformat and Paste Special will work when i manually do it.... but when i record as macro it will not work when played back...... Here is the code it records... code does not include the roundup part. I dont know how to do that.

Range("M3").Select

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "1.05"

Range("M3").Select

Selection.Copy

Application.FindFormat.NumberFormat = "$#,##0.00"

Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlMultiply, _

SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False

Range("M3").Select

Application.CutCopyMode = False

Selection.ClearContents
