Dear People,
I have a small Requirement in Excel. Can you please help me out?
Problem Description:
Content of Raw Material Prices are maintained in a Xl sheet.
These Material Prices are then used for Calculating the total Price of a Component in another Xl sheet using a Formula.
1. The Component Cost Xl File should be able to recognise the Raw Material Price File.
2. The Cost of the Material should be then read from 1st Excel sheet.
3. Calculation in the Component sheet should update depending on the Material Prices.
4. The Update should be carried out in a simplified mean, either by Macro or some other easier Method.
5. Integration steps should be easy and should take care of the Problems regarding different Paths.
6. The Extension of the Components as well as Material should be automatically taken care of (automation).

Like in one Colum Part name and in onther Colum Price of the same .
But at the time of component price calulation i need part name with price.
So please hepl me


in Colum "A" Colum "B"
3 way Pin Type 6.90

Hi Ulhas,

When you know which Raw materials are needed for a Component, you can use multiple VLOOKUP's to gather the total price for the Components.

This would solve the first 4 points.

Point 5 I don't understand. What different path? You are using multiple sheets in one file, right?

6. ???, You would like to rename the components and raw material?

Best regards,
