Backlog by Regions

All,

I have made this request pretty self explantory.  I need in a given month a formula written that will add all remaining backlog past the current month applicable to that region, as it is assumed the current month has been executed + the current month bookings for that region - any expected revenues(pipeline).  In February, the bookings will be cumulative for two months, and the pipeline will be cumulative reduction for regions.  This will continue i.e. March will be (Jan, Feb, Mar).  Backlog tab will always lose current month and back, and just add all columns for months going forward past current month when region is identified.

Sorry all, forgot to attach the file.  :)

Good luck,

Pete

As a reality check, can you advise what the backlog totals should be for a couple months?  E.g., For February and March?

Ok - I see its PLUS cumulative months bookings <= current month, and MINUS cumulative pipeline revenues <= current month


See attached.

Cheers,

It appears your "sumproduct" formula is correct, I will audit it tomorrow and get back with you.

Thanks again Dave,

Dave,

Your formula works.  Quick request, for I am struggling on making the change myself.  I would like to extend the "ranges" on the three tabs well beyond the row paramaters you've covered, for we will be going way beyond this when dropping our data.  Everytime I try to replace with a wider range, my formula stops working.  Can you help?

Sure.  I'm leaving for the airport in an hour.  Post your workbook that has the wider bounds and let me take a look.
