# Allocate monthly pay across months.

1. ## Allocate monthly pay across months.

I am trying to create a spreadsheet that will formulate the following problem:
i get pay twice this month but the next month has 3 days of this month too. how much of the next month money was earned within this month?

I have like 500 lines of names and incomes but I am trying to sort for incomes that gross 1000 per month or more. But the pay periods go into the next month too. Im loss when it come to the formula to calculate this. I just want to drop the information in and it solves the problem.

I think you would take the next month and divide it by the amount of day and that total with be add the month I focused on but it has to be a quicker way to come up with this. \$350/3day from current month = \$116 added to the current months pay

Hi, and welcome to the forum. Unfortunately your post does not comply with Rule 1 of our Forum RULES. Your post title should accurately and concisely describe your problem, not your anticipated solution.

Since this is your first post IŽll change it on this occasion but please note for the future. I also suggest you upload an example worksheet with some typical values and desired results so that we know exactly what it is you're trying to achieve. Clearly identify original data and calculated results and note your calculation logic.

Thank you for the information you left. I will make sure I add the correct information when asking future questions.

Here is a dumby worksheet on what I am trying to do. I tried adding a formula which is highlighted in green but for the future months how can I make this much simpler? I also want to get future amount determined from the existing information given?
