    Would like to create a 'sliding model' for choosing proportion of 2 different calculations

    Hi all,

    So, I have created a document which has 3 scenarios that result in increased revenue. At the moment, the model is showing the outcome if either scenario was used to the max. I'd like to know if there is a way to create a sliding model whereby I can say (for example, I also need the ability to be able to change the total figure) "in total we need to produce 25m of increased revenue, if we split the plan with 70% scenario A, then we will make Xm and need to make Ym from scenario B" and give the user the ability to adjust how much of that 25m should come from A/B.

    Subsequently, I will then almost reverse engineer the number to give them the plan. So, for example, if 15m came from scenario A, I can tell them that their cohort 1 customers need to increase penetration by X% to hit that, and then with 5m in scenario B, that relates to X new customers.. etc etc - so it gives them the freedom to see what seems viable, if they believe 10m is viable from scenario A but then they see what % increase it relates to, they may reduce it to 5m from scenario A, without me having to remodel each time.

    Hope that makes sense? I've added a doc with dummy data attached. To summarise, scenario A = increasing revenue from customers who already give us a portion of their total business, scenario B = signing up new customers to this platform so they provide equal penetration as the existing customers. I'd ideally like a summary page with sliders that could enable someone to slide across to get the % value but I can make that if I have the logic.

    Many thanks!

    Are you familiar with Solver? It's available in all the versions of Excel you'd need it for.

    Oo, no I haven't heard of this add-on. This looks interesting, not sure exactly how to approach it for this - I found a solution through it, but how do I then allow the user to make adjustments based on what they've found?
