#### Simple Simple Simple

```Just started Excel (again) and need to make an easy speadsheet fo
calculating square inches.

Column A: Height
Column B: Legnth
Column C: Total Tags per 16 x 24
Column D: Cost per tag

Figures I know: each sheet cost me \$9.98. each sheet is 16 x 24 inches

What I want to do is enter the Height, enter the Length and have th
total (sum) be entered into columns C and D.

I can't believe I forgot how to enter formulas.  Any help will b
appreciated.

Thank you,
Crai

```Hi Craig,

One Way, might be better ways but this'll work:

List the coloumns as you posted.  I also included the
\$9.98 in cell F2.

In C2 enter:

=IF(OR(A2="",B2=""),"",FLOOR(24/A2,1)*FLOOR(16/B2,1))

drag this down as far as you need to.

In D2 enter:

=IF(C2="","",\$F\$2/C2)

Also drag down the same as above.

Be sure to enter \$9.98 in F2 (this you can change if your
costs vary without going into the formulas.

HTH,

Don

I can do it with helper column but would rather not. The answer should be \$5.89. (d1) Tx wabbleknee, Your D1 figure is wrong. It should be in the \$5.81 or \$5.82 range based on how you rounded the result. Choose from the following formulas, and place one in Cell D1, drag and fill down the rest of the column: =ROUND(SUM(\$A1*\$B1,\$A1*B1*\$C1),2) =ROUND((\$A1*\$B1)*(1+\$C1),2) Will give you \$5.81 =ROUNDUP(SUM(\$A1*\$B1,\$A1*B1*\$C1),2) ...

HowTo: Reduce "memory footprint" of simple app?
I'm developing a relatively simple MFC SDI app that has an objective of working well on "dinosaur" computers (old Pentium or 486, minimal memory, Win95, VGA resolution). MFC apps seem to have a default minimum memory allocation of about 4 megs, regardless of whether the app does much of anything. With Win2000 and and WinXP, the TaskMgr indicates that a wizard generated SDI app is allocated about 3.7 to 4.0 megs. My impression is that it is possible to set an option for the linker, or make a call to the o/s to relinquish quite a bit of this memory. However, I haven't found t...
