TIL: AngelIII is not 'Angel 3' but Angel Eyes.
I am using Excel 2016
I am making a material inventory list which will also include the amounts required to produce each of our model types.
Column "F" is the current "quantity in stock" of every part in my inventory
Columns H, J, L and N are the amount of that material required to produce each unit type.
On my "asset list" tab I have a completed unit stock list. As each unit is serial numbered I am entering each unit on a separate line. There are columns for each unit type.
I am trying to make so when I enter the number 1 in any of those 4 columns on the "Asset list" that the amount of material required to produce (columns H, J, L and N) will be subtracted from column F (quantity in stock)

Please ask question (not post)  if you need help from our community

Here's the issue: I've got three columns of data: Individual, Amount Sold, Date Sold.

People have multiple sales for each given date.

I want to find each person's best night, i.e. all the sales for each given date combined for that date, and then I'd like to see the max for each individual, so I can show them their best night.

I can do this by creating a new sheet with three columns, one containing every date from 1/1/17 to 12/31/17, the next containing the name of a single person, and the third containing a SUMIF formula, so that I have the sum of each person's sales for each day, and then take the MAX from that column. I am sure, however, that there is a better way. A PivotTable seems to only give me the largest single sale from each individual, instead of the night with the largest sale.

What's the simpler solution here?
