Can anyone help Thanks[/h]
Hi can anyone help me im a bit of an amateur when it comes to excel but basically ive been designing a quoting system for work and I need to know how many boxes i can get on a pallet to calculate the vehicle required. The height is irrelevant. I get the size from previous worksheets. I then need to find out how many times it will fit on a euro pallet 800 X 1200 and 1000 X 1200MM. I can have a little overhang.

Without complicating things I need to
1) divide the box size by the maximum size which is 1350 X 1350mm & 1000 X 1350mm to find the maximum boxes I can get per layer (Which I have Done)
2) Then if they are both say 6, then find the smallest which is what im having trouble with.

I need to find the largest BPP(D) so 6 on the first and 4 on the second then if they are equal like the first one then I need to find the lowest area. Which is in the far right column (E). So in B column I have =IF(P8=P10,MIN(Q8,Q10),MAX(P8,P10)) to find this but i need the the size not the area of the best layout. Additionally on the second it returned the BPP.

How can I find the highest BPP? And if they're the same the lowest area (E) then get it to return the size of the best (B) (C)
it's a little difficult to explain but I can try and explain anything you don't understand

Any help would be extremely appreciated I've actually been trying to find an answer for days on google now?? thanks again
