Hi,

Keep getting #DIV/0 error when trying to calculate ROI.

The top row is avg number of transactions, next is the average order size (in $), next row calculates credit card fees and a .35 cents fee per transaction, next is revenue generated and last is net cash flow for the year. No matter what my guess is I get the same error.

Thanks for All Help,

Help says "Values must contain at least one positive value and one negative value to calculate the internal rate of return."

Yeah, you should have negative cash flows followed by positive ones (in an ideal world). As it stands, with all the values effectively negative (cash outflows) it cannot be calc'd.
