I have no VBA or other Excel coding experience, but need a couple simple routines.
1. I need a certain cell (A) to equal the result of a certain
calculation. The calculation could return any positive number, but
the maximum value of A is 100,000 (storage capacity of a water tank).
By what formula can I insure that the value of A is < than or = to
100,000? Just to be clear, if the calculation returns 99,999, then that is what A should store.
However if the calculation returns 100,001, then A must store 100,000
2. In a sheet related to the one at issue above, I store daily water
inflow and outflow meter readings. I then subtract today's meter readings from
yesterday's to calculate daily inflow and outflow, and then go on to calculate and store
month-to-date and trailing month's water usage, etc.
The problem is that I do not always get the meter readings daily. I want Excel
to recognize when data is missing, do the subtraction based on today's and the
most recent earlier readings. then do a simple average based on the number
of days of missing data and store the averaged result in each of the cells for
the daily results.
Suggestions? Thank you!
