Question about Microsoft Excel for PC

There is always multiple solutions, but here is one...

Add a row (that can be hidden later if you want) where you have the full date (01/01/09). For this example it will be row "C." Then use Conditional Formatting with the function:

=weekday(C$2,2)>5.

See if this helps.

not sure if this is what you are after entirely but should at least help you out some what

=DATEDIF(A3,C3,"m")/3

As you said you cant just divide by 3 but I have divided the formula by 3 to see how many 3 months will go into the output you could maybe have another formula to divide it by 2 to see if it will divide by 2 to see if you get a whole number or not, if you do then you can just return the first part before the dot ( using split function ) and if the value is less then 1 then obviously the 3 months has not passed between the 2 dates

If the column is absolute, then use the $ before the first character and if the row is absolute use the $ before the second character in your cell designation. If BOTH column and row are absolute, use the $ before both the column and row character.

Examples: $A1, A$1, $A$1

Examples: $A1, A$1, $A$1

To calculate the difference in Years use =Year(c,r)-Year(c,r)

To calculate the difference in Months use =Month(c,r)-Month(c,r)

To calculate the difference in Months use =(c,r)-(c,r)

c= column, r= row

You will need to format the source cells as dates

To calculate the difference in Months use =Month(c,r)-Month(c,r)

The easiest way of doing this is by inserting another row with Days

Can be MTWT etc, and you can set conditional formatting for any cell beginning with "S" into a colour/ variation of your choice.

Hi,

Cool problem I use this to track stocks for the latest 5 days, 15 days and so on.

First I have a sheet that is titled "DataRecord" this has my individual data in columns and the days recorded in rows. This is a complete record or all recorded stock activity. This is where all the entrys are made in rows. I freeze window to make the column headings and the left most column(the date) always visible to prevent errors.

Next I have a sheet that is titled "L5DaysData' I have sevreral rows of data like avg, & what ever. and the latest 5 days data starts on line say 6. a typ. cell ='DataRecord'!B970

The next cell down has a value of ='DataRecord'!B971 and so and on until B974

My Graphs are built on these individual "L5 or 15 or 60 or90 day" sheets of data.

Next I make a macro that translates the last line of data down one row and deletes the row just above the earliest that I want to save on "L5DaysData" so it always shows only the latest 5 days of information.

All the information shown on that worksheet is the data for graphs or tables refering to the latest 5 days activity.

The graphs are automatically updated with the data each time the macro is run.

You can also use a formula to adjust the date column by adding a value of one to a specfic dated cell untill you reach Sat or Sun and add 3 or 2 to that date cell and translate that down a column and use a work sheet that records only the latest 3Mo. with macros that updates the information when you want it to.

Hope this helps.

Glad to be of assistance - please rate the solution I can learn from you. Thanks

Not sure if I get your problem. Do you mean the SUM() formula with the row does not work?

That is the simplest solution if you are entering the monthly numbers per month.

If you have all these values and need to sum them up based on the current month, you need to use the MONTH() with the NOW() formulas to get a month offset and use a relative reference for the SUM() formula.

The eomoth function returns the last day of the month.

Use EOMONTH to calculate maturity dates or due dates that fall on the last day of the month.

eomonth (1/2/08, 1) will return 31. The number of days in the month.

eomonth (1/2/08, 2) will return 59, The number of days in the month plus the next month (February)

Here's one way to do it. Your formulas would look like this:

B1:

=IF(OR(J1=1, J2=1, J3=1, J4=1, J5=1),1,0)

B2:

=IF(OR(J1=2, J2=2, J3=2, J4=2, J5=2),2,0)

B3:

=IF(OR(J1=3, J2=3, J3=3, J4=3, J5=3),3,0)

etc.

If you don't want the zeroes to display, format the cells with a custom number format--type: 0;-0;;@

B1:

=IF(OR(J1=1, J2=1, J3=1, J4=1, J5=1),1,0)

B2:

=IF(OR(J1=2, J2=2, J3=2, J4=2, J5=2),2,0)

=IF(OR(J1=3, J2=3, J3=3, J4=3, J5=3),3,0)

Okay, here's a possible solution--based on my interpretation of your problem.

Suppose you have some value in cell B1, and the month (either Jan, Feb, or Mar) is stored in cell A1. The formula in C1, which performs calculations based on which month appears in A1, is as follows:

=IF(A1="Jan",B1*0.25,IF(A1="Feb",B1*0.3,IF(A1="Mar",B1*0.4)))

In this example, the value in B1 is multiplied by .25 if the month is Jan, by .3 if it's Feb, and .4 if it's Mar.
