Excelchat Expert 03/08/2018 - 07:06
it*
User 03/08/2018 - 07:06
now if i change cell C 4 to 20%
User 03/08/2018 - 07:06
certain months value should not change
User 03/08/2018 - 07:06
for example lets say comission
User 03/08/2018 - 07:06
after sept the comission % is 20%
User 03/08/2018 - 07:07
here April to Aug it shoudl be at 10%
User 03/08/2018 - 07:07
and from Sept at 20%
Excelchat Expert 03/08/2018 - 07:07
ok, so it would be doubled?
Excelchat Expert 03/08/2018 - 07:07
is it like that?
User 03/08/2018 - 07:07
but April to aug shoudl only be 100
User 03/08/2018 - 07:08
yes
User 03/08/2018 - 07:08
is there a formula to freeze the amounts from April to Aug
User 03/08/2018 - 07:08
and not do manually
Excelchat Expert 03/08/2018 - 07:08
oh we dont have that function in excel
Excelchat Expert 03/08/2018 - 07:09
we can only fix that if we will remove the formula
User 03/08/2018 - 07:09
hmmmmmmm
User 03/08/2018 - 07:09
is there any other way
Excelchat Expert 03/08/2018 - 07:09
you want to fix apr - aug in 100?
User 03/08/2018 - 07:09
the objective is to make it automatic
User 03/08/2018 - 07:10
and no manual intervention
User 03/08/2018 - 07:10
yes
Excelchat Expert 03/08/2018 - 07:10
ok
Excelchat Expert 03/08/2018 - 07:10
so it the percent is 10%, you want apr-aug as 100
User 03/08/2018 - 07:11
C 4 is dynamic
User 03/08/2018 - 07:11
it keeps on changing
Excelchat Expert 03/08/2018 - 07:11
ok
User 03/08/2018 - 07:11
it can be 10% ,20% etc
User 03/08/2018 - 07:11
but once i calculate for one month
User 03/08/2018 - 07:11
that month amount should not change
Excelchat Expert 03/08/2018 - 07:12
so if any percent on C4
Excelchat Expert 03/08/2018 - 07:12
apri - aug would still be 100 and not changing?
User 03/08/2018 - 07:12
yes because the starting point is 10%
User 03/08/2018 - 07:12
from April to Aug
User 03/08/2018 - 07:13
after Aug its becomes 20% or 30%
User 03/08/2018 - 07:13
but that doesnt mean that April to Aug amounts will change
User 03/08/2018 - 07:13
it should still reamin 100
Excelchat Expert 03/08/2018 - 07:13
Excelchat Expert 03/08/2018 - 07:14
but excel doesn't have that function to fix the value, particularly if this has formula
User 03/08/2018 - 07:14
ok
Excelchat Expert 03/08/2018 - 07:14

Excelchat Expert 03/08/2018 - 07:15
