Very new in this board. If I post this question in the wrong forum please bear with me.
There is about 20 staffs in our department and I have made a spreadsheet with 12 tabs for each month of the year Jan-Dec. If each staff have 15 days annual leave each year and how can I make a formular that can automatically calculate the balance of annual leave and entered in the tabs of the following months. For example if staff A used 5 days in Jan how can the balance of 10days be entered in the tabs from Feb-Dec. If he use another 5 days in July the remain balance of 5 days be automatically entered in the tab from Aug to Dec. Likewise if staff A took 2 days sick leave in Jan, and 2 days in Mar how can this sick days be automatically sum up in the months after. I am doing this manually at the moment and it is very time consuming and also very easy to make mistake.
Thanks and sorry for this long questions

I'm trying to format a worksheet to show how many days overdue certain tasks are, and running into a couple of issues. The sheet is set up with Due Dates in Column A, Days Overdue in Column B, and Date Completed in Column C. My first thought was just to use as simple a formula as possible in Column B =Today()-A2. This worked alright for tasks that already had Due Dates assigned, but if Column A was blank I'd get a high number in Column B. I also realized that tasks will continue to show as overdue even after I enter the completed-on date in Column C. Is there a relatively simple way to tackle this formula? Thanks in advance for suggestions. (I've attached an example with the column headings I want to use.)


Is there a way to calculate the average days between a column of dates?

Basically, I've got a sheet that contains a table of entries, and each entry gets a date stamp in the first column. I would like to have the sheet display the average time, in days, between entries. Is this possible?

Thank you in advance!

Good afternoon!

I'm working with Excel 2003 sp 3 on Windows xp.

I have been banging my head trying to jar loose the formula to calculate man days where 1 equals 8 hours. I have one that was given to me by a coworker:

=INT(Q3/8)+(((Q3/8)-(INT(Q3/8)))*0.8)

That calculates man days from total hours. I need a formula that will total man days and return the man day answer. Example:

weekending 12/25 = 16.2 which is 16 man days and 2 hours
weekending 1/1 = 24.7 which is 24 man days and 7 hours

Total = 41 man days and 1 hour

I have also been asked if there was a way for a number to be entered into a spreadsheet and automatically put in order without a macro or "pushing a button".

Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Happy New Year!

HI...can anyone help me with a formula for aging data in days (to be aged based on current date vs. for eg., Invoice date)


I'm trying to come up with a solution to calculate the man hours and days worked over multiple sheets.

I have a file that has 8 sheets. the first seven sheets are the days of the week and the 8th sheet is where I want to calculate the hours.

The days of the week consists of "Name" "Date" Hours"

The 8th sheet consists of "Name", "Days of the week in their own column (7 columns in total)", "Total Hours" and "Total Days Worked"

Now... each day is always a different group and what I'm hoping for is to create a formula that can grab each name with their hours and throw them into the 8th sheet. So when the end of the week is done I have all the Employees weekly hours and days worked all finished.

I hope this makes sense. This file is to track about 100 employees that are on a rotational work schedule.

I have attached a sample file.

Thanks in advance for your help.

i've been trying to figure this out on my own but seem to be hitting road blocks.

i have a column of numbers that we extracted from a database as whole numbers. for instance, 30 should be .30 and 100 should be 1.00. when i try to increase or decrease the decimal point it doesn't allow me to convert it to those positions.

would any one have a tip of how i can easily convert this? there are over 2000 entries in my excel spreadsheet so to do it manually would take a lot of time/effort.

thank you!


From limited experience I know that excel calculates dates via serial numbers.

I have formulas to add a number of days to a cell containing an entered date and display the resulting new date (ie. 03/01/2011 (c34)+11 = 03/12/2011)

I am seeking to leave resulting formula cell blank until a date is entered in the input cell. Currently when the input cell is empty the formula cell obviously displays 1/11/1900 using the above example.

What conditional format would achieve leaving the formula cell blank until date data in entered into the source cell?

Hopefully a simpler question for your experience level than mine.


Hello,

I have two columns of data: column A contains the date and time in the form dd/mm/yyyy. Column B contains a number value. All the times are in order, so column A looks like:

01/01/2007
02/01/2007
03/01/2007

I have data from 2007 to 2010. I need to calculate an average daily value (in column B) for each month, and display it in column C. So, for January, I need to calculate the average of 31 days, February, 28 days, etc.

Is there a function I can use to do this? I've been trying the AVERAGEIF formula but can't get it to work. Any ideas would be much appreciated!

Many thanks,
Caitlin

I have a workbook that has compliance dates in columns "F","G" and "H" from row 7. What I need is when the date in either column comes within 30 days to auto send an email, address in column "A", recipients name in column "B". and then place todays date in column 'P". ALso need to send a follow up email when either date comes within 7days and then place todays date in column "Q". If there is a date in column "P" then don't send email. If there is a date in column "Q" then don't send follow up. Can this be done without the users intervention and each time the workbook is opened.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Hello, please help me out with this one.

So I am at work workin on this report and I need a function that will make Excel automatically insert the today's date in a cell (let's say D90) when I fill the content of another cell (for example C90) and the that will be inserted will never change. I tried to use the =TODAY( ) function but it keeps updating the date in the cell to the current date if i reopen the worksheet 2 days later. I need the cell to keep in the cell the date of the day when I filled in the content of cell C90 and do not updated it every time i open the document to the actual date.. Thanks in advance!!


I have attached a schedule for shift allowance calculation. The conditions for payment are as follows:

3 & 4 shifts = 15% Basic
2 shifts = 10% Basic
If on leave for 21 working days or more, no shift allowance
If on leave for less than 21 working days and on 3 or 4 shifts, shift allowance prorated as (Basic*15%)/21*(diff. btw 21 and no of days leave observed)

If on leave for less than 21 working days and on 2 shifts, shift allowance prorated as (Basic*10%)/21*(diff. btw 21 and no of days leave observed)


The formular I used in the attached worked but the only problem is that I had to sort by no. of shifts and adjust the formular first. I need A formular that does not require sorting. I tried to combine IF, AND, OR formulae but I got error. Please assist me sort this out. Thanks a bunch.

Hi there,

How i can convert Hijra (Islamic) Dates into Gregorian?

a formula or VB

any help


I see a formula that our Human Resources Department is using to annualize voluntary turnover.

It looks like this:

=(E3/((A3+D3)/2))*12/months

So if I substitute with some actual data:

=(6/((22+33)/2))*12/months the answer becomes 21.8% (as the annualized voluntary turnover rate).

What does the *12/months actually do mathematically? I cannot find it in the excel help files and have not been able to figure this out using math (on the calculator).


A previous poster explained what I also need; there were no responses,
so I thought I would try again.

Does anyone know of an Excel template--or a small stand-alone
program--that will calculate the interest/principal breakdown when
payments are varied in amount and frequency? Free or low-cost, please.
I need one that will work on my Mac/Office 2004. I will need to print
out periodic reports.

Here is the way the previous poster described it:
"Excel template: Loan Amortization for random/irregular payments,
figures days
between payment dates.
I have a loan with a variable beginning balance and irregular payments
with
annual large payment. (based on collections)
Would like to enter payment and date.
then Excel would figure days since last payment, interest amount,
principal
amount, Ending Principal balance.
And total interest paid, total pricipal paid
If I change the starting principal, excel would recalculate all
entries."

Thanks very much.




I have imported a DBF file into Excel and have a column of dates that are missing the leading zero on single didgit months. When I try to us the custom format of mm/dd/yyyy it doesn't work (interestingly, after I select that format if I click on an individual cell it changes to the right format).

Does anyone know a better way to do this?

Thanks in advance!


Hi all,

I hope you can help me with what I would like to do. I've searched and searched and not come up with anything yet!!

I have one sheet which is my 'data' sheet with a number of columns, one of which is a date which may be repeated.

I then want to use another sheet with two cells where two dates can be entered and a button which allows you to copy the rows of data from the data sheet which have dates between the two specified originally. The list in the data sheet may not be in date order although I could update a macro to do this for me if needed. I would also like to do it so that if "ALL" is typed in the date fields, it pulls over ALL the data. (Or something similar)

Any help you can give would be much appreciated.

Cheers,

Kevin


I am looking for assistance in having one cell in a text format equals another cell that contains a time value in hh:mm format.

For example: Cell A1 has a time format (hh:mm) value of 04:00; which is the Start Time. I would like cell D1 to have a text format value of "04:00" (result is dependant upon what is entered in A1). I would duplicate the same formulas to reflect Stop Times in other cells.

My final result is to have another cell (F1) use the Concatenate formula to have the Start and Stop time shown in one cell as "04:00 - 12:30". The times would change based on the Time formated values entered into the Start and Stop time cells.

I have researched this in the board and found many excellent ways to do the opposite, but not convert Time format to Text format. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Good afternoon,

Is there a way to enter a colon into a standard number to create a value that can be formatted into a 24 hour time value ?

eg a time is listed as 1345 with a general number format, and I want it returned as 13:45 witha custom format of hh:mm.

Other than creating a table and using a vlookup function, I am hoping there is a better way?

I am trying to correct a formula for a productivity worksheet in excel. The idea is that we would have the ability to input the number of hours worked each day and the number of direct hours (working with clients) per day. Then take the daily percentages and add them then devide them to determine the final productivity percentage for the week. Additionally not everyone works a full week so I would need it to only divide the percentages of the days that were completed. Any suggestions? or does anybody know a formula that would accomplish this already? I am good with basic excel and was able to identify a flaw in the current productivity sheet.
