#### Adjusting one data set based another

```I'd like to compare two sets and report a result that shows how one data
set would plot if related to the other set (sorry, I know that's poorly
worded). Here's an example:

Sample #1               Sample #2
25%	0.26	25%	0.264
30%	0.31	30%	0.317
35%	0.36	35%	0.365
40%	0.41	40%	0.426
45%	0.45	45%	0.5
50%	0.51	50%	0.569
55%	0.56	55%	0.644
60%	0.62	60%	0.72
65%	0.69	65%	0.779
70%	0.75	70%	0.835
75%	0.84	75%	0.901
80%	0.93	80%	0.968
85%	1.03	85%	1.049
90%	1.12	90%	1.108
95%	1.24	95%	1.194
100%	1.4	100%	1.242

So, in the above data for example, at 50%, sample #1 reports 0.51 in
sample #1 and 0.56 in sample #2.

What I want to do is create a formula that compares sample 1 to sample
two and gives me the dot percent value where sample one needs to be to
equal sample two. For example for 50%, sample #1's value of 0.51 would
equal a percent value around 46%, as this is the area that a value of
0.51 would occur. Any suggestions on how to achieve this?

```I'd develop equations that predict each Sample and then go from there.
I've plotted the data and one appears to be more of an exponential and the
other linear.

```Graph each series and add a trendline to each.   For Sample 1, make it a
linear series and for sample 2, make it an exponential series.   You can
format each trendline to display the equation on the chart.

I came up with an equation that will give me the results I need, but
now I'm having trouble implmenting it into a form that excel likes.

Its basically two formulae, one for the situation where the value of
sample 2 is less than the value of sample 1, and one for when the value
of sample 2 is greater than the value of sample 1.

=IF(B15"<"D15,(((D15-B15)/((B16-B15)/(A16-A15)))+A15)),IF(B15>D15,(((D15-B14)/((B15-B14)/(A15-A14)))+A14))

But apparently I don't have it formatted correctly as I'm getting an
error. No if I use the formulas individually, they work as expected.
=IF(B15"<"D15,(((D15-B15)/((B16-B15)/(A16-A15)))+A15))
or
=IF(B15>D15,(((D15-B14)/((B15-B14)/(A15-A14)))+A14))
But when I put them together, error. So, is there a problem with the
way I established the second IF statement? Any thoughts?

I did this, but I'm not sure how to interpret the results.  :confused:

How can I import "Packed" mainframe data into Excel?
I've copied a file from an IBM Mainframe computer to my PC and need to do some analysis in Excel. Some of the fields in the file are "packed" - for example, the format of one field is " P(9.2). On the mainframe, that takes up six bytes, so \$5.90 is stored as "00000000059F" (the last bit is the sign). This is NOT "hex" but an old convention that breaks each byte (EBCDIC 8-bit) into two, 4-bit parts and stores one decimal value in each part.
