Calculate % variance on previous quarters. Quarter %, etc. pivot

How do I calculate a % variance from the previous quarterly total and place 
the % variance next to that particular quarter?

Column      qtr1  %   qtr2  %  qtr3  %  qtr4  %  Total$
item1         50    ??    75    ??  100  ??  125  ??

Example: what is the % variance from qtr1 and qtr2?  The variance per cent 
will go into the column format betwenn qtr1 and qtr2.  Designated as ??.

The best way to calculate qtr over qtr performance is the following.

X = Previous Qtr Revenue
Y = New Quarters Revenue

The formula is:


So in your example for Q1 to Q2 revenue would be:

=(75-50)/50 = 50%  

So the increase Qtr over Qtr was 50%  You always devide (the difference
from the new quarter to the old quarter) from the old quarter becuase
that is the % you are looking for the delta from.

Old emails previously filed into subfolders going to Junk Email
We're on Exchange 2007, and most of the clients run Windows XP with Office 2003. So far this has been running fine. Though recently we've updated some of the clients to Office 2007, these clients are now finding that sometimes emails they've previously open, then filed into subfolders, now appear in their Junk email folder. Also if you right click these emails and mark as not junk, it actually asks if you wish to move back into the specific subfolder it should be in (not the inbox). I've googled and I wasn't able to find any other cases of this, so I'd ...

Newbie problem with amortization calculations
Hello, I've just today installed Money 2006 Deluxe trial version; a full version is on the way, which I am beginning to regret. I've only gotten as far as downloading my checking account from my bank and TRYING to establish an account for my mortgage. I have entered the information five times now, but the mortgage amortization Money calculates simply will NOT match my bank's. It starts off being off by a few pennies at best, and escalates by the end of the amortization to being off by anywhere from a few dollars to fifty or more. Money also will not allow me to make the mortgage ...

Upgrading Office Versions
Version: 2008 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) Processor: Intel Hi - I've searched the forums and didn't find anything on this subject, so I apologize if I've missed it. I've upgraded from Office X, to Office 2004 and finally to Office 2008. In my User Data folders, all the folders from previous versions are there, including some rather large identity files. Since Office 2008 has an identity file of its own, do I have to keep the previous ones? Could any of these old folders be deleted entirely? I need to clear out some space on my poor MBP. Thanks much!

Pivot table question: How to display total and percent for data simultaneouly

Count unique values
Hi, I've some problems to count unique items (Invoice #) in a pivot table. There is the default solution "Add-a-new-calculated-column" as mentioned on, but in my case, it doesn't works. My problem is, that these values aren't in a Excel worksheet; it's a external data source - a SQL-Select via DAO/ADO. Because of that, I don't have the possibility to add a new column. Another reason is, that the pivot table should always be dynamic: Group over this field, group over another field - and always show the number of unique...

Where to find previous updates for Office 2008?

Pivot charts & tables
Hi, I'm using Excel 2002 and have a number of charts that I want to put together. I have 3 questions relating to pivot tables & charts. (1) I wish to use the same file but each month add new data to the source data. Will my pivot tables automatically incorporate new data? At the moment I have all my data in one worksheet. I assume the easiest method of doing this is to add new data below the last record? (2) I have a number of charts where I want only the top 10 series. For example I have a pie chart with the top 10 franchises (there are over 30). I have one other pie 'slice&...

how do I troubleshoot date formats in a pivot table report?
The date format appears only with the month (e.g. Jan) and not the year, even though I have formatted the cells to show, e.g. Jan-05. Mark You shouldn't need to format the date for a year. If you right-click on the date header and select Group and show detail>Group... you will then be able to select months and years. This will add a new field with the year in it. If you have data from multiple years then Excel will aggregate all the January's data for example unless you tell it to show years. -- HTH Nick Hodge Microsoft MVP - Excel Southampton, England nick_hodgeTAKETHISO...

calculating percentages
