I have a data set (Set#1) that consists of a positional rank (1-240) and a dollar value ($46-$1) for each positional rank. It's not a straight line set.

What I need to do is take that curve and apply it to another data set (Set#2) (1-240) and assign a dollar value ($46-$1) to each positional rank.

A "corner cutting" way of doing it would be an Index/Match to simply carry over the dollar value from (for example) #45 from my Set#1 to #45 in my Set#2. This could work reasonably well with data sets of the same size, but mine aren't always the same size, so I need to apply the curve itself. I

I have a few dates and one Total value. I need to distribute this Total Value in such a way so I can get the same shape S curve (Date vs Value).

Say I have a $10,000 project. I want to be able to spread it out like a bell curve in the cells I choose. For instance, if it was a five month project it would be distributed as

January - $1,000

February - $2,500

March - $3,000

April - $2,500

May - $1,000

If I added another month it would change to

January - $833.33

February - $1,666.66

March - $2,500.00

April - $2,500.00

May - $1,666.66

June - $833.33

I already thought of manually adding percentages to each cell, but the formula needs to be dynamic.

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 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?

The task: create price sheet that calculates pricing based on 2 criteria - quantity, and production time.

There are two worksheets. #1 is the main calculator, #2 is the price sheet, broken down with time (in hours) on the left column B, the quantity across the top in row 1. There are then boxes with different prices based on both the hours and quantity of products.

On worksheet 1, I have specified quantity in C6, and time in C8. How do I pull a price in to F8 that calculates based off the time and quantity filled out on sheet 1?

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 am looking for a formula that can change the price of some of the items on sheet1 in column C by the amount found on Sheet2 in Column D. I would like it to base the calculation on column C in sheet2 (so I can choose if I want to add, subtract, multiply, divide, or make the price exact). I would like all prices that don't match these UPC codes to remain unchanged.

Intended Results can be seen on Sheet1 in Column E. Not sure if I should a formula with the Vlookup function or a macro, or maybe there is even a better solution.

I'd like to be able to add 10% to column D and have the prices in A, B, C change accordingly. Is there a formula for this?

PS: Right now I have it set up working the opposite way, the prices are entered and my formula tells the user by what % the price has changed. The user wants to be able to tell the formula what % is desired and have the prices change accordingly.

The formula I am using for the way column currently calculates is:

=IF((G2=0),"",(((G2-F2)/F2)*1))

I price life insurance policies and need a formalu for the following new Fund:

If the sum of the first two years of premium added to 10% of that total is equal to or less than 25% of the face amount, the case fits into the general parameter.

Here is what I have, but it isn't working:

=IF((U2+V2)*10%)+(U2+V2))

(To keep things simple from left to right Column A-H)

The Amount Column seems to be my problem, it has the formula =H98*B98 just a simple multiplication formula to get my unit price x my qty. When I delete the formula in the amount the unite price #value! error goes away. and all that is in the other error box is =IF(P98>0," per piece","") it just puts "per piece" in the box when something is typed.

I have a vlookup formula in Column F (thank you VoG)

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(E98,Products!$A$34:$I$81,9,FALSE)),"",VLOOKUP(E98,Products!$A$34:$I$81,9,FALSE))

I need to complete my business price list. Basically it's an XL sheet with all my suppliers products listed, there price, my margins, and my retail price and bulk price. Currently I'm fiddling with my margins and the best way to implement a formula to reflect these margins. Rather than do it manually, is there anyway I can create a forumla for different gross margins to be set for a certain range of the suppliers goods. For example, any product I buy thats costs me between $0-$20 has a set margin of 1.44 (44%), or a product who's price ranges from $100-$200 has a set margin of 1.26 (26%) etc. This would cut out then need for me to manually check suppliers prices and change to margin accordingly, thus saving me much time.

I would like to know how I can build a formula that would allow me to quickly update the pricesheets by the appropriate percentage, without having to manually do so, one cell at a time.

View 2 Replies View RelatedI 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.

Using excel 2007

So I have this assignments. Its about rental services. I need to create a formula where the price is automatically found from a table depending on what drop down menus are selected. One menu is the rental name and the other is the season i.e. high or low, therefore each rental has two prices.

I know i can use Vlookup if there was one drop down menu but how to do the other. I was think it will interms of if statement but i dont know...

Here is the link to the worksheet: [URL] ...........

I have the following table in excel:

Price: Percentage:

$150 10%

$100 12%

$50 14%

I'm trying to use the percentage depending on what price I enter in a cell. For example; if I enter $135 then 10% will be used, if I enter $65 then 12% will be used, and if I enter $47 then 14% will be used.

.............................24............30............36

300014999..........9.00%.......11.00%.....12.00%

1500099999........9.50%.......11.50%.....12.50%

100000249999.....9.00%......11.00%.....13.00%

I need an all inclusive formula (all in one cell) that would look at the above table and depending upon the price paid (3000-14999 or 15000-99999 or 100000-249999) and depending upon what monthly term they choose (24, 30, or 36), the appropriate finance charge would be used to calculate a total cost (9-13%). The only way I know to do this is by using IF's and AND's, but there are simply too many arguments and I cannot properly write the formula.

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 am trying to find a formula to calculate the total size from a to b with the curve being in cluded in the total.

I am looking for a function [or method] to calculate a polynomial curve fit. I can do it on a graph with the existing graph and chart tools, but I need to calculate it myself. Does such software exist somewhere in my Excel 2007 package, or can anyone recommend a freeware program? I am hesitant to download an unknown, un-recommended add-in.

i am getting some data via RS 232 port and plotting it straight to excel, which comes out to be in forms of waves you can say sine waves, now i need to calculate area under the curve, say like if i highlight some area it will automatically calculate the area, or if i select two points on the curve it will calculate the area. please help me out i am really stuck at this part.

View 9 Replies View RelatedI'd like to apply a curve to a column of student exam grades and have the curved grades displayed in the adjacent column. Here is how I'd like to curve:

I like to make a linear function out of two coordinate pairs.

First Pair (x1,y1) = (Highest Exam Grade, 99) = (H,99)

Second Pair (x2,y2) = (Class Exam Average, Desired Exam Average) =(C,D)

Slope = (99-D)/(H-C) = m

Linear Function = Y-y = m(X-x) = Y-99=m(X-H)

Each student grade would = "Y" i.e. Y=m(X-H)+99

For example. Let's assume that I want to forcast growth from January through December. I know that in January I will have 100 units. In December, I will have 1,000 units. Is there a formula to predict the the units in Feb-Nov (using a normal growth curve)?

I am trying to calculate the equation of a curve which best fits some data. On the x-axis is date and y-axis the readings. The curve is quadratic, so on the chart I am fitting a 2nd order polyomial and displaying the equation. To prove that the equation the trendline gives me is reasonable, I am applying the equation on the x parameter to get the y parameter estimate and looking to see the error between predicted and actual - see attached.

The equation and the output from it are clearly rubbish, even though on the graph the trendline is a reasonable fit - see attached. Has anyone any ideas why? I think it has something to do with using a date on the x-axis but no idea why. Is there a way to correct for this? I also tried using the following I to calculate the coefficients which came up with a reasonable forecast (although linest should only be used for linear data): =LINEST(C3:C15,B3:B15^{1,2,3})

View 9 Replies View RelatedI am working on Project Planning, I need to create the Progress curve for our Project based on Weight Factor every month.

I need to create the Plan and actual curve based on the dates defined in particular activities. Once the activity progress is calculated every month based on cut off date then it will sum product with corresponding WF to get the progress achieved every month. Presently I am calculating the values every month and pasting the values in Chart data every month. I had created the S Curve and attached here.

Now my objective is to automatically calculate the values for the entire cut off date at one time (From Project Start to End). i.e I don't want to do any manual work in the Chart. I will update only the actual Dates in the file, then the curves need to get automatically updated.

1) I don't want to calculate the progress for individual activities, I would like to calculate the overall progress directly.

2) When I change the Cut off date, then the previous values needs to become static.
