    Quantity Surveying Cost Database

    Good afternoon,

    I'm a new QS and new to these forums and in order to price jobs easier as I obtain more costings I am trying to compile an ongoing costsheet.

    I've attached an example as a reference point; a table in Master Cost Sheet which has been allocated a code, e.g,

    Row 3 - Code = A0001 Desc = Facing Brick Qty = 10 Rate = 1.8

    In budget test, I would like it to cross reference against the master cost sheet and choose the rate which is associated to the closest quantity equal to or lower than.

    E.g, a quantity of 71 would be closest to Qty 50 thus show a rate of £1.6

    Help/advise would be really appreciated.

    This assumes Quantity is sorted ascending.

    Yes that's the result I want but given I expect there to be hundreds of codes, I would like the formula to select the rows containing a particular code, e.g, A0001, rather than manually specifying the rows myself as this would be a very time consuming process once the spreadsheet has been fully built.
