    Supplier Lead Times

    Hi,

    thanks in advance for any assistance with this.

    I have a page with each supplier and their lead time for delivery from placing an order.
    I have a page with the items from each supplier that is required each month
    I would like to create a page that shows when orders have to be placed to insure delivery before the parts from each supplier is required

    I have linked 2 photos for you to see what I mean.

    I've been trying SUMIF, IF etc but I cant quite get the 3rd page to pull the amount to be ordered in January to populate from the lead time

    Re: Supplier Lead Times

    Welcome to the forum!

    Firstly, you might want to ask an admin to help you change your chosen user name to something more appropriate, or your intentions here might be misconstrued.

    Secondly, will you please attach a sample Excel workbook? We are not able to work with or manipulate a picture of one and nobody wants to have to recreate your data from scratch.

    1. Make sure that your sample data are REPRESENTATIVE of your real data. The use of unrepresentative data is very frustrating and can lead to long delays in reaching a solution.

    2. Make sure that your desired solution is also shown (mock up the results manually).

    3. Make sure that all confidential data is removed or replaced with dummy data first (e.g. names, addresses, E-mails, etc.).

    4. Try to avoid using merged cells as they cause lots of problems.

    Unfortunately the attachment icon doesn't work at the moment, so to attach an Excel file you have to do the following: just before posting, scroll down to Go Advanced and then scroll down to Manage Attachments. Now follow the instructions at the top of that screen.

    Please pay particular attention to point 2 (above): without an idea of your intended outcomes, it is often very difficult to offer appropriate advice.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the quick reply and for the advice.

    My username is the same I use on several forums, I picked it for ease. If it requires changing I'll easily change it.

    I'll make up a mock book as suggested and attach

    thanks again!

    It doesn't require changing, and you probably think it's amusing, but to those of us who have to deal with the SPAM here, I can assure you it isn't.

    If by any chance you have asked this question on other forums, then you MUST post cross-post links. Thanks.

    Its from Monty Python.

    I've created the mock book. I couldn't attach through the board so I've uploaded it here.

    No, you need to attach it here. Many members cannot or will not access file-sharing sites. Here are the pertinent instructions again:

    Unfortunately the attachment icon doesn't work at the moment, so to attach an Excel file you have to do the following: just before posting, scroll down to Go Advanced and then scroll down to Manage Attachments. Now follow the instructions at the top of that screen.

    Many members will know nothing about Monty Python, Spamalot, Eric Idle or dead parrots ...

    In F4 copied across and down:

    =INDEX(Data!$E$4:$AB$10,MATCH('Desired Outcome'!A4,Data!$A$4:$A$10,0),MATCH(EOMONTH('Desired Outcome'!F2+'Desired Outcome'!E4,-1)+1,Data!$E$2:$AB$2,0))

    You're a star! Thanks

    It #N/A's when copying across but I'll play with the $ a little to get it to work.

    Re: Supplier Lead Times

    Sorry - my fault. Should be this:

    =INDEX(Data!$E$4:$AB$10,MATCH('Desired Outcome'!$A4,Data!$A$4:$A$10,0),MATCH(EOMONTH('Desired Outcome'!F$2+'Desired Outcome'!$E4,-1)+1,Data!$E$2:$AB$2,0))

    Please mark the thread as solved.
