# Help with year to date comparison

D

#### danny

Hello,

I have 2 sheets, one for 2008 and other for 2009. On each sheet I have
monthly data (\$) and a cell with the sum of all the months. On the 2009 sheet
I will add a new figure monthly and this will add up the year total cell.
next to this one there is a year to date 2008 for comparison. So what I need
is that everytime that I type a number in a month on 2009, the year to date
2008 adds the same months... here the sample for better understanding...

2008
Revenue (USD)JUN JUL AUG SEPT OCT NOV DEC YTD 08 YTD 07
money 5 8 2 7 5 1 2 30 25

2009
Revenue (USD)JUN JUL AUG SEPT OCT NOV DEC YTD 09 YTD 08
money 5 6 4 15 15*

YTD= year to date
(*)Is there a formula that on YTD 08 adds the same months that already
contain data on 2009 extracting that data from 2008?? and doest it everytime
I add a number on a month in 2009?
thanks

Hi,
Let' say you are pulling in the 2009 sheet totals from 2008 as described now
assume that you have your 2009 from column A being A1= January and then in
column N you have your 2008 data being N1=january, the amounts start in row 2
so in N2 you can enter

=if(A2="","",sheet2008!A200)
copy this formula to the left

Sheet2008 is the sheet where you have your 2008 information
A200 I assumed is where you have your total for January 2008

change the above to fit your needs

if this helps please click yes thanks

Thanks for the quick help,

That didn't work, is hard to explain but let me try again,
In the 2009 sheet from A2 to L2 I have monthly totals, it adds automatically
all months on cell M2, the same applies to the 2008 sheet.

Then, on 2009 I need in cell N2 the sum for the same months that already
have data in 2009, but from 2008.
Let's say in 2009 I put the data for JUL, I need in cell N2 the sum from
JAN to JUL 2008. Then when I put data on AUG 2009, N2 should give the SUM
from JAN to AUG 2008 and so on. This way I get to campare the totals for the
same months of each year, just by looking to N2 and M2.

thanks

Hi
Sorry for the delay

=SUM(OFFSET(Sheet2!A2:E2,0,0,1,COUNT(F5:J5)))

Sheet2!A2:E2 is the 2008 range you want to summarize from jan to dec change

count(F5:J5) is the 2009 range where you enter the information from jan to
dec change it to fit your needs
