Hi I don't know how to do this but I know it can be done. I want to write a

simple macro (or maybe just a formula) - it doesn't have to look that pretty

as I am the only one using it. It is the following:

STEPS TO CALCULATE USUAL MAINTENANCE FLUIDS:

1. Convert child's wt in lbs to kg

2. Calculate 100 ml of fluid/kg/24 hr for the 1st 10 kg of wt

3. Calculate 50 ml of fluid/kg/24 hr for the 2nd 10 kg of wt

4. Calculate 10 to 25 ml of fluid/kg/24 hr for each kg over 20 of wt

5. Add the products of steps 2,3, and 4 to determine the ml of fluid

needed/24 hrs

So I want to be able to plug in a weight in pounds, and this "macro" give me

the individual answers for each step, then the total at the end. And yes I

can do it on paper all day long I just want to be able to do it quicker and

check myself.

Thanks

Robin
