Excelchat Expert 15/08/2018 - 11:05
You want to delete column D and E from the spreadsheet?

This form helps me keep track of cash flow based on different ucrrencies
User 15/08/2018 - 11:08
A has the currency
User 15/08/2018 - 11:08
B the amount
User 15/08/2018 - 11:09
C the Exchange rate
User 15/08/2018 - 11:09
F tells me is the money is coming in or going out
User 15/08/2018 - 11:09
G and H convert everything to poubds
User 15/08/2018 - 11:09
I and J convert everything to euros
User 15/08/2018 - 11:10
and place it in the correct column
Excelchat Expert 15/08/2018 - 11:10
Okay, I'm listening.
User 15/08/2018 - 11:10
I want to eliminate D and E which purely calculate the conversion rates
User 15/08/2018 - 11:11
and have an IF statement in G and H, or I and J, that will allow me to have all calculations to be done there
User 15/08/2018 - 11:11
so, for example
User 15/08/2018 - 11:13
G will be, If A is £ and F is in, then G = B if not G=0 BUT, at the same tine, IF A is € and F is IS then G = (b*c), if got G=0
Excelchat Expert 15/08/2018 - 11:14
I believe I understand the problem now.
Excelchat Expert 15/08/2018 - 11:14
