#### Accumulate Amortized Expenditures by month

```I need some help with an excel sheet and you guys may be the ones to
help.

I have a list of capital expenditures that I want to amortize over X
months.

Lets say office equipment is \$10,000 and we are amortizing it over 12
months starting 1/1/11. That gives us a monthly cost of \$833.33

Total capital expenditures by month
1/1/11 - \$833.33
2/1/11 - \$833.33
3/1/11 - \$833.33
4/1/11 - \$833.33
5/1/11 - \$833.33
6/1/11 - \$833.33
7/1/11 - \$833.33
8/1/11 - \$833.33
9/1/11 - \$833.33
10/1/11 - \$833.33
11/1/11 - \$833.33
12/1/11 - \$833.33

So that is just one expense. No lets say in June we buy more
computers. Again they cost 10,000 and we are paying it off over 12
months.

Now my matrix becomes this....

Total capital expenditures by month
1/1/11 - \$833.33
2/1/11 - \$833.33
3/1/11 - \$833.33
4/1/11 - \$833.33
5/1/11 - \$833.33
6/1/11 - \$833.33 + \$833.33
7/1/11 - \$833.33 + \$833.33
8/1/11 - \$833.33 + \$833.33
9/1/11 - \$833.33 + \$833.33
10/1/11 - \$833.33 + \$833.33
11/1/11 - \$833.33 + \$833.33
12/1/11 - \$833.33 + \$833.33
1/1/12 - \$833.33 + \$833.33
2/1/12 - \$833.33 + \$833.33
3/1/12 - \$833.33 + \$833.33
4/1/12 - \$833.33 + \$833.33
5/1/12 - \$833.33 + \$833.33

This would continue for each item we add to the list of expenditures.

I need to create an excel sheet that will accumulate totals for each
month.

What is the best way to accomplish this?

```One way...

List dates in ColA, List expenditures in in dividual cols starting in
ColC.

ColA will run continuous for any given number of years, 12 rows per
year.

ColC:Col? will contain amounts for the expenditures as applied to each
month.

ColB will total ColC:Col?

Rows(1:2) are header rows where you can enter a description for the
expenditure in Row1, and the cost in Row2.

The formula for cells under each expenditure should only be entered in
rows that relate to the amortization period, to keep auto-calc overhead
to a minimum.

Example for ColC, Rows(3:14):  =C\$2/12
Example for ColD, starting in Jun: Rows(8:19):  =D\$2/12

Optionally, you could give C\$2 a Column-relative, Row-absolute
defined name whereafter the formula will be the same for all cols.

Select C2 and enter the following in the defined name dialog...
Name:  'sheet name'!Exp_Amount
RefersTo:  =C\$2

Cell formula for all cells:  =Exp_Amount/12

Result:
A data table showing individual expenditure amounts for each month,
and totals for months with multiple expenditure payments. Unused
(non-current) cols/rows can be hidden if you don't want to see them,
leaving only 'active' payments visible.

```BTW...

Your example for the first 5 months of 2012 should be blank in the
first column, showing only the 2nd expenditure in the 2nd column.

Language for month
I'm making a database to track a my activities in Access 2007. For every activity I have fields for date, description and duration. I have also set up a report, grouped by month. The name of the month + the year is the heading for every group. However, the name of the month is written in Norwegian. I would like this to be in English. That is, "October" instead of "Oktober". Is there any way I could do this? A label can be translated to any language that the keyboard and your copy of Windows supports. As to the data, itself, you'd need to translate that to the...

Autofill between dates in Fiscal Month
I am trying to autofill a column in a spreadsheet based on the dates in a fiscal month. Basically, I want the user to enter the starting and ending dates of the fiscal month, then have the dates autofill on a seperate spreadsheet. The problem is that certain months do not fall in a cosecutive range. For example, June starts on May 29 (sun) and ends on Sat June 25th. I want the autofill to start with 29 and go to 31 then start up with 1 and fill to 25, any ideas? This could be probably be done with formulas, but the specified start and end dates must remain available for that sheet, or the f...

Amortizing Mortgage Incorrectly
Hello, Money 2005. I have a mortgage entered in Money which is about two years old. Somewhere along the way (mid 2006), it began to amortize incorrectly. When I check my monthly statement from the mortgage company, the principal and interest allocations were different. I went back with my statements and started to manually reallocate the payments. The first was off by some amount I cant remember (not more than \$.50 or so). When I adjusted the first one, I received the following message: In the [Mortgage Company Name] loan account, there are loan payments following the one you are chan...

Convert X-Axis Scale from Day/Month/Year Options to Actual Numbers
1) I have some charts where the X-Axis scale is calibrated by entering dates, and minor/major tick marks are in whole days/months/years. 2) I have similar charts where the X-Axis is calibrated using numbers that represent dates (i.e. 39287 for 7/24/07) and I can use numbers with multiple decimal places to set the major minor tick marks. How can I convert (1) to (2)? Chart (1) is difficult to use because the dates never line up as I want (with a specified beginning and ending date). Chart (2) does allow me to set a specified date at each end of the X-Axis. The first axis sounds like a...
