when i enter an equation into a cell such as: =product(a1,b1) into cell c1. If a1 is 1000 and b1 is .10 than c1 should equal 100, but it equals 102.04. My calculator is off somehow when i try to multiply. Please help me. Thank You, Kat I'd take a look at the values in A1 and B1. Are they really 1000 and .10 or are they 1000.49999 or .10444 (for example) "Kat and the Calculator" <KatandtheCalculator@discussions.microsoft.com> wrote in message news:591A3F6E-7C20-4C88-B1E2-6B76CFF502BA@microsoft.com... > when i enter an equation into a cell such as: =product(a...

Hello, I am new to excel and have been assigned the task of creating a file that breaks down the amount of time each of our employees spends on different projects. Most importantly I want to create a rollup sheet that shows the total number of hours all the employees have spent on the different projects (there are 6) for the current week. Is there any way for excel to figure out the current week then add together the hours all the employees worked on these 6 projects? Thanks in advance.

I am working with a colleague to create a spreadsheet to rank supervisor performance through several aspects of the average performance of their employees. We have been given a similar spreadsheet as an example of what is needed. I am looking at it, and initially cannot understand what in the world some of the calcuations are meant to do. Here is one that is meant to calculate the "ranking score." It is a percentage determined by a target percentage and the person's actual performance percentage: =IF(IF(C3>0,(C3/B3),200)>200,200,IF(C3>0,(C3/B3),200)) As far as I ...

hello: Like to be able to add a series of calculations into the menu bar. The calculations would require 1 input field, 2 sets of radio (or are they called toggle???) buttons, a pull down list and an answer field that was dependent on the radio buttons, pull down and # inputted. I can do all this in an Excel worksheet fairly easily; however, I'd like to put it up in the menu bar/tool bar area so it is easily accessable no mater what workbook I'm working in. How can I do this? Any places I can read about this on the Web? Thanks for any answers/pointers! For example, the basic con...

I have a budget that says I have $1000+ saved each month, when I setup a savings goal for three months down the road for $2000 it says that it is unattainable and the max I could save is $345! What else is calculated into the savings goals other than how much money is left over after each month! It just doesn't make sense. The only help it gives is check out your cash flow... and sure enough, at the time I want my savings goal to be reach it says that the total of my accounts is $4000+ dollars... why does Money keep saying that I can't do a savings goal above $345?!!! This is...

I made a query that uses fields from multiple tables to calculate values for daily metrics. I need to present monthly totals of the data as sums and/or means. The tables are linked by the Date (mm/dd/yyyy) field. I enter ‘between 03/01/2010 and 03/31/2010’ in the criteria for the date field. For the totals I enter ‘group by’ for the date and ‘sum’ or ‘avg’ for the calculated fields.

I have a simple spreadsheet calculating the hours worked by a person, In the columns i have start time, end time and hours worked. The columns are formatted into hh:mm. The hours worked are calculated by subtracting end time from start time, based on 24hour clock. This works fine if the hours are worked on the same day, but if the person starts at 18:00 and finishes at 02:00 the subtraction doesnt work. If however i change the formatting of the cells to dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm this will work as the date helps. But i feel this would be too much info to enter for each person if i have ov...

Does anyone know how to find out what Excel is doing as it recalculates? I have a large spreadsheet (7+M). When it calculates the completion percentage at the bottom left hand corner pauses at several values (22%, 43%, 92%, ect.) The sheet takes over 30 seconds to recalculate and so far I have not been able to determine why. I thought if I could find out what Excel is recalculating during these pauses it might give me insite as to what's happening. Also, one worksheet in the workbook was copied from another workbook. When I use shift-F9 \, that is the only worksheet that has an...

I need to be able to calculate a commission as follows: Total Amount=$500 Total Commission (0-$100, 5%)+($101-399, 10%)+(>$400, 15%) This would calculate a different percentage for each of the ranges above and then add them together. I hope I'm making myself clear because I'm confused just writing this. It seems like there should be a very easy way to do this in Excel. Any assistance would be most appreciated.

Frank, you are my absolute hero, I have been trying for ages to sort that one out (see question Timesheet Calculation, Richard Burrow) I new it would be something simple like that. I now have a further question however. I have set the formatted the cell to show the hours worked as a number for example: Start time Finish Time Total Time 8:45 AM 9:00 AM 0.25 It is showing the time worked as 0.25 I appreciate that 0.25 represents a quater of 1, but I want it to display the results as a quater of an hour i.e 0.15 how would this be achieved. Hi then use the formu...

I have a car loan that I want to add to the budget but not to the debt reduction planner. How do I do this. I am having a rough time with it. Thanks Well, what have you done? (Assuming recent versions of Money and, if M05 or M06, Advanced Budget.) Loan Payments are typically accompanied by Loan Accounts. If you have defined a Loan Account, it should automatically get in the Budget in the Debt category shown at the bottom. Some of us might argue with how Money treats it, but that's how it does it.

Can we multiply two fields from two different forms without using a query. Example from one table the value and from the second table the VAT(in order when the VAT changes to amend only the VAT field) When I try it I'm getting error message. Thanks -- Message posted via http://www.accessmonster.com Why not use an unbound combo box to select the VAT tax rate on 1 form. Then you can multiply it in the AfterUpdate event of the combo. Alternatively it the VAT combo is bound to the table, if you are not using a continuous form or datasheet, you can just multiply the numbers as the contro...

Hi, I have a sheet with some dates and hours. I need some formula or function that calculates how many time has gone between both hours but knowing that it only must count the hours between 8 A.M and 7 P.M. Example: Date and Hour in cell A1 01-11-2009 10:21 A.M Date and Hour in cell B1 02-11-2009 4:43 P.M The result should be 17:22 hours because we only calculate hours between 8 AM and 7 PM Thank you so much Try =(INT(B1)-INT(A1))*"11:00:00"+MOD(B1,1)-MOD(A1,1) "bren" <srtaele@gmail.com> wrote in message news:2ca02793-61d8-4a24-a1e...

I have 2 fields in query. Qty1 and Qty 2. I added Total:qty1+qty2. However, if qty1 has some number but qty2 is blank, my total is blank, instead of just show the sum. In Access You need to use the NZ function to force a ZERO. Or use an IIF clause.

I have a form with several tables and fields within the tables. I've added buttons to expand/contract the table, enabling users to only see those rows they'll use. This keeps clutter off the page and makes the form more dynamic. I have no issues with this function; it's great! Let's call them Rows 2 through 14 My problem arises when the user clicks the minus button. To prevent data from being stored when it shouldn't, the fields in the deleted row are first cleared, then hidden, then disabled. This prevents tabbers from tabbing through hidden fields. S...
