    Budget assist: Entering "Weekly" "Fortnightly" "Monthly" OR "Yearly" with formulas

    I started out with what I thought would be a simple project to solve fluctuating budgets problem.

    What I basically have is a 4 columns in a spreadsheet labeled "Weekly" "Fortnightly" "Monthly" & "Yearly"

    I wish to be able to fill in a figure in ANY of the 4 columns and extrapolate the correct figures into the other 3 columns i.e If I have $20.00 in the Fortnite column, divide this by 2 to get the weekly figure, multiply the fortnite figure by 26 and divide by 12 to get the monthly figure and so on. I've tried using all sorts of formulas and lots of "if" and "then" statements but ended up with a mess.

    I want to be able to put an amount into any of the 4 columns and have the other 3 calculated out and filled in.
    I'm sure that somebody a lot more clever than me has already done this..
    Can any body point me in the right direction.

    Cheers and thanks for reading...

    Attach a sample workbook. Make sure there is just enough data to demonstrate your need. Include a BEFORE sheet and an AFTER sheet in the workbook if needed to show the process you're trying to complete or automate. Make sure your desired results are shown, mock them up manually if necessary.

    Remember to desensitize the data.

    Hi, welcome to the forum

    This will not be possible to do with regular formulas, the way you want it. A cell can contain either data or a formula, not both.

    To use formulas, you would need to have 4 extra helper columns that would do the calcs based the entry you make in 1 of the "data" columns, something like this...

    A
    B
    C
    D
    E
    F
    G
    H
    I
    1
    Week Fortnite Month Year Week Fortnite Month Year

    20.00
    10.00
    5.00
    0.80

    40.00

    5
    20
    0.38
    0.77
    1.67
    20.00

    F2=IF(A2<>"",A2,IF(B2<>"",B2*2,IF(C2<>"",C2*4,D2/52)))
    G2=IF(A2<>"",A2/2,IF(B2<>"",B2,IF(C2<>"",C2*2,D2/26)))
    H2=IF(A2<>"",A2/4,IF(B2<>"",B2/2,IF(C2<>"",C2,D2/12)))
    I2=IF(A2<>"",A2/25,IF(B2<>"",B2/26,IF(C2<>"",C2/12,D2)))
