# How to create "Percentage Remaining" formula

Good afternoon, I am trying to find out how I would write a formula to find the percent remaining for a certain amount. For example, if a company budgeted \$1,200 for the year for office supplies, and they have currently spent \$890.14, we know that \$308.86 is the dollar amount remaining, but what percent of the budget is remaining? I have tried several ways of putting this in and it continues to give either an error, or give an answer I know is not correct. Any help you can offer would be excellent. Thank you.

### How to create Multiple Conditional Formulas in a single cell?

How do I for create Multiple Conditional Formulas in a single cell?
For example:
=IF(B50,IF(K5="Short",(L5-M5)*10000,(M5-L5)*10000),"") is one of the
equations, but I need it to multiply by 100 instead of 10000 if the answer is
greater than 1000.
I could also have it so it multiplies the different equation if word
criteria in a different cell from the same row is different. I dont know how
to do that either.

### How to create a 'dynamic' formula?

I have a large spreadsheet file with numerous worksheets.
Each sheet represents one month of the year and is named Jan05, Feb05, Mar05
etc.

In the "Summary" sheet I want to automatically reference a range in the
other sheets.

For example:

In the Summary sheet column A, I have the sheet names:
Jan05
Feb05
Mar05
etc.

In column B, (let's use B5 as an example) I want a formula that reads
something like:
=B4 + Apr05!C7

This seems simple enough, but how can I write a formula that 'automatically'
enters the sheet name (i.e. "Apr05") in the formula?
The row containing the data for Apr05 is only created when that month comes
along, in order to keep the file size as small as possible at any time.

Thanks,

### Excel 2002 How to Create a list of data from other worksheets

Hi there,

I have a very large excel 2002 document with many worksheets. The worksheets are formatted identically but named randomly (like RMA3498 and IJ98M).

I am hoping that someone could give me some tips on how to create a formula or script.

I would like to create a new worksheet in the workbook that lists the data from each worksheet's F3 cell on a different cell in the new workbook. (I just want a list of what's in cell F3 for each sheet.)

I know how to do the =[Book1]Sheet1!\$F\$3, but since each page of the workbook is randomly named, I was hoping someone could explain how I could do a range of worksheets or some other workaround so I don't have to manually enter the formula for each cell.

Please let me know if you have a tip for this. I looked around extensively to find the answer before posting, but I couldn't find anything.

Thank you!

### How to create a Speedometer Chart

For whatever it's worth, note the following:

By visiting the link below you can learn how to create your own Speedometer Chart in Excel 2007.
http://www.brainbell.com/tutorials/m...s-CHP-5-FIG-28

With the help of John Walkenbach's Chart Tools @
http://j-walk.com/ss/excel/files/charttools.htm), and by tweaking some of the formulas in Andy Pope's tutorial I was able to create a functioning speedometer chart.

Formula tweaks:

(Following the tutorial instructions - under column E - label "Needle")

Original:

E2 = "200"
E3 = "=((180/100)*F3)-1"
E4 = "2"
E5 = "=360-(SUM(E2:E4))"

Tweaked:

E2 = "180"
E3 = "=IF(F3=0,0,((180/100)*F3)-1)"
E4 = "1"
E5 = "=360-(SUM(E2:E4))"

### How to create an array formula for a non-adjacent range of c

Hello all,

I have succeeded to narrow following formula: =IF(Z4=0,0,D4/Z4)+IF(Z5=0,0,D5/Z5)+IF(Z8=0,0,D8/Z8+IF(Z9=0,0,D9/Z9) by creating following array formula: ={SUM(IF(Z4:Z5=0,0,D4:D5/Z4:Z5))+SUM(IF(Z8:Z9=0,0,D8:D9/Z8:Z9))}. As you can see this array formula has two components, because it refers to a non-adjacent range of cells. Is there any possibility to write that array formula for a non-adjacent range, by using only one term ? Thank you.

### How to create a conditional formula for a range of cells?

I am trying to make a conditional formula from 7 range of cells. The two has
different condition, and the remaining five has the same condition. I tried
doing it individually, but when it came to the seventh and last cell, it
doesnt accept it. Is it because I can only do so much function in a
formula(it says not more than seven)? If so, is there any way I can just do
the last five cells at once since the condition is all the same for the last
five range of cells? This is my what I was trying to do:

=if(g5=k52,rounded(sum(k22:k25)*80%,0),if(g5=k53,r ounded(sum(k22:k25),0),if(g5=k54,rounded(sum(k22:k 25)*85%,0), if....so on and so forth up to k58

From k54 to k58, the conditions are the same which is 85% of the total of
k22 to k25 rounded off.

### How to create a Drill down filter/formula

I need to know how to create a way to enter criteria in one cell and additional criteria in another cell and have it pull that from two seperate lists and add them together.....Another words drill down through the lists to give me the correct data at the end.

EXAMPLE
I have a sheet that is showing the travel distance between locations.

In order for all possible senerios, I had to gather data on the distance from every location to itself.

So how do I enter one location and then another location and have excel tell me the distance.
Once that is done, i want it to add that total to another locations distance which is also pulled from the data list.

I am sure this is about as clear as mud.....

### How to create a loop formula

Hi,

I just came across array formulas today, don't know why I haven't realised this possibility yet. And not really sure I understand the use of them yet either, but I am trying to read up on it.

Anyway, I have an issue which I'm unsure can be fixed with the use of arrays or nto.

I have a formula, which tells the numbers of reinvestments needed. from 1 to more. Result of this is "number_of_reinvestments".

Then I have a formula which is =NPV(5%;year*number_of_reinvestments;0;-100)

I need the above formula to be done once for each reinvestment necessary. So if "number_of_reinvestments" = 2 then the formula would be like this

=NPV(5%;year*1;0;-100)+NPV(5%;year*2;0;-100)

How can I write the formula above so that it would expand depending on the "number_of_reinvestment"?
