Hi,

I am a fairly elementary user of Excel so I have been having difficulty creating a formula in Excel, I will try to explain my problem as best I can and any suggestions would be hugely appreciated.

I have a few figures. I am trying to get excel to add VAT (17.5%) to each of the figures to be displayed in the cell directly below te ex-VAT figure. Also I am trying to get the new VAT inc figure to be multipled by 10,000, 15,000 & 20,000 in a separate cells. Any ideas?

I hope this makes some sense :/

Anyone who can help I would be indebted to and would be entirely thankfully.

Cheers for any replies,
Robert

Can a formula spear through sheets?
Use =SUM(January:December!E7) to sum E7 on all of the sheets from January through December
Welcome to the forum.

To add 17.5% to a number (assumed to be in cell, A1) you would use:

=A1*1.175

To multiply a cell by 10,000 and have this show up in a different cell (again assuming the initial value is in A1) you would use:

=A1*10000

Erk fairly simple. Sry for my imcompetiance D:

Anyhow thanks very much Seti, best wishes mate.
