Creating Formulas to Subtract Values
Tom also wants you to calculate the change in sales from one year to another, broken
down by region and month. You’ll use the copy and paste features to quickly add this
third table to the Monthly Sales worksheet. Then you will add formulas to calculate the
increase in units sold between 2011 and 2012.
To calculate the change in sales from one year to the next:
1. In cell A36, enter the label Net Increase .
2. Copy the range B21:K21 , and then paste it into the range B36:K36 .
3. Copy the range B22:B34 , and then paste it into the range B37:B49 .
4. In cell C37, enter the formula =C22–C7 . After you press the Enter key, the
value 64 appears in the cell; this is the increase in January sales for region R01.
5. Copy cell C37 , and then paste it into the range C37:K49 . The formula =C22–C7 is
copied and pasted into the range of cells with the remaining months and regions.
6. Click cell A36 to deselect the range. Figure 2-27 shows the completed table.                           Search JabSto ::
