Hi there, I would like to know how to use excel to calculate

Customer Question

Hi there, I would like to know how to use excel to calculate stock end dates. For example. If I have 120 units, and I go through an average of 4 units per week (assuming stock was drawn down on a Monday), what formula would I use to get the date my stock would run out.

Many thanks in advance.
Richard.

Hi Andrew, if I could bother you for one more question. I was wondering what formula I would use to work out a projected total number of stock units usage from todays date up till a predetermined end date.


 


eg. If a customer used 1 unit per week from the current week, up until say the 12/30/2013, what formula would I use to figure out the total number of units used or allocated between now and then?

Expert:  The-PC-Guy replied 7 months ago.
so you would want to know how many units was used between the 2 dates?
