Excel 2007

I have to do a dashboard everymonth in which I will show performance figures of different areas/factors. I was wondering whether someone could help me to do performace indicators (improved, decreased, same as last month) to the right adjucent column of the figure.

Is there any formula we can create so that the working dashboard will take figures from the relevant columns of previous month and compare whether its an increase, decrease or same and automatically show an indicator (a coloured upward arrow, downward arrow, or a line) on the adjucent right column. Much appreciated

Hi Siju

Thanks for getting in touch. Depending on your desired solution, there are many ways to approach this.

I've attached an example that uses HLOOKUPs, IF functions and Data Validation to generate the data, and finally Icon Set Conditional Formatting to display the icon. Explore the workbook and see if it's what you need.

If you'd like further help or other explanations please get in touch.

Kind regards
