    Multiplying percentage from dropbox by a different value in separate cell

    Hi Everyone,

    I need help! I created a drop down box with different percentages, which represent different markup rates. I have a different cell of values I'm manually putting to represent the cost of materials I have purchased. Now I'm trying to figure out a formula to use to find out the sum/product of the material I purchased plus the rate of the markup. I need the formula to adjust based on the percentage selected from the dropdown box.

    I appreciate any help I can get!

    Re: Multiplying percentage from dropbox by a different value in separate cell

    Hi, welcome to teh forum

    Hard to be exact without seeing a sample of what you are working with, but I have a feeling you are over-complicating this. If you are applying teh same % to all values, then just sum the values and apply the % to the total.

    Below are 3 different ways to do this.
    The 1st is how I described above
    the 2nd uses sumproduct
    the 3rd rune the cals on each row and sums that totao - this is just to checvk teh answers

    A
    B
    C
    D
    E
    F
    1
    0.1
    10
    165
    11
    165
    2
    20
    165
    22
    3
    30
    33
    4
    40
    44
    5
    50
    55

    1. C1=SUM($B$1:$B$5)*(1+A1)
    2. C2=SUMPRODUCT((B1:B5)*(1+A1))
    3. E1=B1*(1+$A$1)
    copied down
    F1=SUM(E1:E5)

    So, all you really need to to add the rows and apply the % to the total
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
    3. Click on the star if you think someone helped you
