This answer was rated:

I have an excel question, I have two customer list and gallons used in 2011 and 2012, I wanted to get the year over year composite. I wanted to know if there was a formula I could use to add the combine names in sheet 3 and have the gallons used in both years, eventhough some might not have bot in 2012 or 2011. I'm trying to determine the year over year change per name. Thank you. This is the excel sheet. Thank you. yoy.xlsx
