# Predicting Sales Data

Jan 10, 2009

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.

## Excel 2010 :: Sales Daily Sales Data To Be Aggregated Into Monthly Data (not Using Pivot Table)

Mar 27, 2013

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.

## Predicting From Large Collection Of Data

Dec 15, 2007

I will try to keep this as short as possible. I have a huge amount of stringed data from dry kiln runs all well organized. I want to make something that will look at all this data (or at lease the ones that I specify) and give me a prediction of what would happen if I was to make a change somewhere in the schedule. I have alot more info if needed.

## Sales Summary Sheet - Consolidate All Data In Sales Order Number Wise

Jan 5, 2012

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

## Sales Report From Sales Data Sheet If Select Date

Feb 4, 2013

I wanted to get the data from data sheet where i have entered the data manually for sales what have done

Now I wanted is when i enter date i should get the product and price in other sheet

Example:

If I enter date in a1 cell

I should get the detail of product in b1-b10(if i sold 10 item )which is in data sheet

And c1 - c10 price (if i sold 10 item @that price)

## Auto Predicting Formulas

Apr 3, 2007

Say there are 3 cols ( A,B & C ) whereby C sums B and A. I have a situation here where C does not show (=SUM(A10:B10)) on the formula bar. I can type anything in C and the formula remains. I've even tried deleting the contents of C. It's like the formula is only activated when values are entered into A and B. Could excel be auto-predicting the formulas as a trend? I would like to repeat this for my other workbooks but I could not find a way to repeat this fluke.

## Determining Top Contributors To 50% Of Sales Based On Cumulative Percent Of Sales

## Using Rolling 12 Month Sales And Minimum Monthly Sales?

Oct 17, 2013

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]....

## Get 5 Top Sales People Names And Their Sales?

Oct 3, 2012

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.

## Summarizing Sales Data

Feb 26, 2009

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.

## Combining Or Consolidating Sales Data

Jan 19, 2010

At the end of every month I receive a sales report from our ERP system setting out sales quantities by Customer ID e.g. ABC001 and Product ID e.g. FB3000. I need to collect the data for each month and gradually build a report for a 12 month period.

My problem is that each monthly report does not include every Customer ID and every Product ID, it only includes cases where sales quantity was > 0. So as each month's data arrives I need to make sure that my report has all necessary Customer ID and Product ID pairs so I am not missing any sales.

## Finding Current Month Total Sales Using Current Month To Date Sales In Formula / Macro?

Aug 20, 2013

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.

## Tracking Daily Total Sales And Individual Tender With Data Extracted From .dbf File.

May 23, 2006

I want to track daily sales of a shop with the tenders (Cash, Master, Visa)seperated.

## List Of Sales By Salesperson From A List Of All Sales

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.

Can excel parse that information out and list it in order row by row showing each sale for just one salesperson per sheet?

## 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?

## Sales Order Sheet

Feb 13, 2009

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?

## Sales Realization Calculation

Jan 24, 2009

## Sales Run-rate. Too Tough For Me

Feb 4, 2009

I'm trying to calculate a sales run-rate which will change on a day-to-day basis, to predict the end-of-month sales total.

The invoice values are in the data range H17:H74 (I don't want the final formula to add up the refunds in this field i.e. negative values)

The date field is in data range C17:C74.

So basically the formula will need to add all invoice totals (excluding refunds) and divide by the current number of days worked in the month (not duplicating days in the date field) and then multiply this by the average number of working days in a month (21). This should should give a predicted end of month sales total.

Am I just making things up that are impossible to do on excel?

I've had a bet with the other guy in the sales office because I said excel can do a lot more than he thinks. He's under the impression that excel begins and ends with what they teach you at school.
