Completion Percentage of a date range

```I have started a task sheet in excel and i have a "task description" coloumn,
a "start date", "finish date", "number of days" and a "% complete" column.

What i want to achieve is the user to enter the first task start date and
the number of days it will take to complete. Then excel will work out the end
date and the percent complete field relating to the current date.

Is there a easy formula of working out the percentage?

Many thanks
```

```Hi Brian,

I think this is right?

Assume Column A is Task, B is Start Date, C is No. of Days, D is End Date
and E is % Complete.

D2=B2+C2
E2==IF((TODAY()-B2)/C2>1,1,IF((TODAY()-B2)/C2<0,0,(TODAY()-B2)/C2))

E2 should be formatted as %.

Give it a crack and let me know.

Cheers,
Jon

```A2 task description
B2 start date
C2 finish date
D2 no. of days
E2 expected completion

fill B2 and D2
C2 =B2+D2
E2 =(TODAY()-B2)/20

if Bs and Ds are filled you drag the formulas in C2 and E2 down
format B and C columns as one of the date formats
foramt E column as percenage

is this what you want.
e.g.
A                B                        C                D
E
task         start                 finish         no. of days         %
completion
a             01-Mar-05     21-Mar-05         20
15.00%

```You have already decided on your columns.  Keep to that.  To determine the
end date, use the formula B2+D2.  To calculate %completed, use this:
=((NOW()-B2)*100)/D2, otherwise you will always get 15%

CFileDialog -- auto completion issue
I'm using an extended CFileDialog (provides Win2k dialog support) and all is working fine, but I had one minor tweak question.

Create semi-log plot for percentage
Good morning, I have exhausted myself searching the internet for a way to create this graph.

Date Format Challenge
Hi Folks - I'm using Excel 2002. Try this challenge in a new blank worksheet: Enter 10:15 in A1 Enter 10:30 in A2 Enter 10:45 in A3 Enter 1 in A4 Excel will automatically treat the 1 as a date. Why? I did not format the column as a date. Or, is Excel looking at the previous entries and assumes I need a date. Thansk.

Another thing that might help is to be able to sort by deletion date. Is there a way to do this?

2007 Structured Reference auto-completion not working completely?

Instead, it just inserts an old-style, "A1" reference. The "Formula AutoComplete" and "Use table names in formulas" options are both turned on.
