I neede to show my work as to how we got to the answer...not just the answers. That is why I paid more for more details.
Expert:  Rakhi Vasavada replied 3 years ago.

Dear Friend,

 

In that case, I will have to opt out. Because, we work it out in excel and other automated worksheets.

 

Hope to assist you in future....

Warm Regards,

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
