|I need to determine how much liner feet of different products with varying widths I need, based on dimensions provided. Excel 2003.|
My spreadsheet has:
□ A number assigned to each part in the job (windows in this case, ie: window 1, window 2)
□ A Validation drop down list of the materials pulled from columns for each material with product codes and widths
□ Dimensions of each window, width and height
Worksheet #1, the Window numbers are assigned and dimensions are entered.
Worksheet #2, the Window numbers are automatically entered from WS#1 and the user chooses which material from the Validation drop down
At this point in a group of cels in Worksheet #3, based on the Window number and the chosen material from WS#2 I would like to:
□ look at the dimensions from WS#1, take the height and divide by the selected materials width, rounding up to multiples of the material width (eg: material width is 60 inches, window height is 95 inches, it will take 2 section widths of the material to cover that area)
□ multiply the rounded number of sections by the width (this gives me the linear feet required for that window
□ but... if the window width is less than the selected material width I want to invert the material and do a straight linear footage calculation based on window height. I need the formula to recognize this based on the material selected in WS#2
There will be multiple materials, so this will generate a list of materials selected and how much linear footage is required for each. At this point I can take the linear footage and calculate costs.
Kind of complex but I hope someone can offer some ideas. Thanks.
