# How do I set up excel to make estimating(pricing) easier?

1. ## How do I set up excel to make estimating(pricing) easier?

I am trying to find out how to use excel as a estimating or pricing program.
Does anyone know how to do this?

Hi Ann,

I can send you a simple (fake) sample worksheet of pricing out the cost of
manufacturing and shipping a washing machine. It may help you to get
going. It uses drop down lists and VLOOKUP formulas to estimate the price
of different options and shipping prices based on different zones.

Regards,
Howard
