Converting A Quarterly Dataset to Weekly Dataset


G

Guest

I have been trying to write a module in vba that will convert a dataset that
is quarterly data to a dataset that is a weekly data set, (as the data I have
is only available in quarterly data format) but I would like to cross plot it
against some different weekly data I have in a excel chart with a weekly date
basline.

Example...

My quarterly data set looks somthing like this.
YearQuarter Data
194701 100 <--Q1 Data
194702 50 <--Q2 Data
194703 200 <--Q3 Data
194704 1000 <--Q4 Data

This is what it should be after conversion macro is run.

Dan,

Try this:

Assume your quarterly data is A1:B4.

In (for example) d1, type 01/01/1947 (to use your year) and format as
date;in D2 downwards, type/copy down "=d1+7" until 31/12/1947 reached; this
will give weekly dates.

In E1 put "=indirect("B" & int((Month(D1)-1)/3)+1)" and copy this down to
last non-blank cell of column D. This should give weekly data corresponding
to the quarterly figures.

Thank you Toppers that was helpfull and did sort of work
Well it did work but threre is still a problem the example I gave you was
only for one year worth of data when I use the same formula and fill down for
10 years it recycles the values for the 4 quarters of the first year over and
over again so I end up with somthing like this example. (Take Note of the
1948 Values using your formula Then Scroll down and see the rest)

Quarterly Data

Perhaps the same formula just needs to be a little different I have to do
this for all years from 1947 to current date. But would be nice to have
somthing dynamic I can use for no matter what length of data set I apply it
to.

Any more thoughts ??

Im not sure if you got my reply to your reply but your formula worked
unfortunatly my data set is more than just one year I need to be able to
convert
the data for several years and when I use your formula for more than one year
I end up with the same data for each year. in other words the values for
194701 100
194702 50
194703 200
194704 1000

end up being the same for 1948 1949 ect..

do you know how to fix this ?

Thanks in Advance

Dan,

try:

=INDIRECT("B"&INT((MONTH($D1)-1)/3)+1+(YEAR($D1)-1947)*4)

Sorry about delay in reply .... time difference ... I have to sleep sometime!
