#### Half Year Averaging Convention

```Hi!

I need help in understanding GP's depreciation calculations.  My client's
fiscal year is from 4/25/05 to 4/30/07.  They entered an asset in 8/31/05
worth 20,000.  The original life years is 9 and the depreciation method is
straight line original life, half-year averaging convention.  We ran
depreciation until 10/23/05 (end of Period 6) and in the Projection Inquiry
window, we got the ff:
8/31 - 9/25 (Part of Pd 5):  130.13
9/26 - 10/23 (Pd 6):  140.14

Pd 5 is 8/29 to 9/25.  Can anyone help me understand how GP got those
figures?  THANKS!!!

```Is your client's fiscal year two years long?  You said below 4/25/05 to
4/30/07.

Average, Excluding Zeros, Non-Consecutive Range
I am trying to average a range of numbers (F35:F38,F42:F45,F48:F54) that have numeric zeros in some of the cells. However, I would like to exclude them, and the cells from the calculation.

Creating payroll batch for 2006 prior to payroll year-end 2005
Is there any danger? Specifically, does the year-end processing adversely affect the payroll transaction batch(es) scheduled for payment during the following calendar year, and, does the existence of pending batches adversely affect the year-end process? My uninformed opinion is that creating batches for next year should be just fine; otherwise recurring batches would be in big trouble!? Thanks. ...

AVERAGE formula with a twist
Hello - I need to average a range of cells B2:Y31. Normally, I'd use the formula =AVERAGE(B2:Y31)... easy enough. The twist is that I need to average that range of cells, BUT any cell that has a value less than 1 or more than 900 cannot be used in the calculation. These values are considered invalid for my purposes. All cell values are referencing a cell value in another worksheet that is part of the spreadsheet; for instance =bam!B2 How can I use a formula to automatically calculate the average of the range without calculating the invalid values? TIA! --- Phil =AVERAGE(IF((...

Should not be able to enter a paycheck in a historical year
A client has found that it is possible in Payroll to misenter a check date into a historical year and leave the posting date for the run in the open year, even though the periods were all locked in the historical year. This creates payroll information in the wrong year, which affects tax reports, payroll reports and payroll summary information. Voiding the check involves removing the year-end wage file, which can't be recreated without putting the old tax table back in. Why not have the system look at the check date as well as the posting date to check for historical or other tha...

Average ERROR
I am using the formulas below for a couple of ranges. Most work but one is giving me a total of all cells instead of the average. Example C36 = 6.00 C37 = 6.00 This formula gives me 12.00 instead of 6.00. =SUM(C36:C200)/MAX(1,COUNTIF(C36:C200,">0")) Other ranges work fine. B36 = 119 B37 = 119 This formula gives me 119 (correct) =SUM(B36:B200)/MAX(1,COUNTIF(B36:B200,">0")) I am trying to get the average of the range counting only the cells that have a number other than "0" in them.

How do i change 15 months to read 1 year and 3 months?
Can some one please provide a formula on how to change months into years and months? Example, I have 15 months in a cell, but would like the next cell to be read 1.3. meaning 1 year and 3 months. Thanks Marty With that format, how are you going to differentiate between 1 year and 1 month and 1 year and 10 months? The numbers 1.1 and 1.10 are indentical to Excel, so you can't accomplish the visual difference (1.1 vs 1.10) with formatting. =DOLLARFR(A1/12,12) will give you 1.01 and 1.10 for the above examples. You need to format the cell with 2 decimal places so you see 1.10, not just ...

add individual data points to a bar chart of averages
I have groups of data points in categories.

How do get the years and days Between two dates
