  1. Hello FAIS,

    Follow these steps to get your desired result.

    • You can use the following formula to calculate the time required to get the desired salary. This formula will give you the result in years only.


    In the formula, C6 refers to the desired salary (75000000), C4 refers to the current salary (307584) and C5 refers to the increment percentage (10%).

    • If you want the results to be in years and months, use the formula given below.

    =INT(C8)&" years " & INT(MOD(C8*12,12))&" months"

    Here, C8 refers to the required time in years.

    • You can set up your Excel worksheet like the following image given below to get the desired result.

  2. Hello Tom,

    The upward arrow between C9 and C10 in the formula indicates the exponent operation of mathematics. In the formula, C9 raised to the power of C10 is written as C9^C10. A simple example would be “Two Squared” which is written as 2^2 = 4, where 2 is raised to the power of 2, resulting in 4.

  3. Hello Claire,

    Insert >> Charts >> 100% Stacked Column

    • As a result, the chart will look like the following image.

  4. Hello Torsten,

    Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention. We will look into the VBA function to see if it can be updated to minimize the deviation of the orange line from the given points.

    Besides, I would like to address your concern regarding interpolation methods. There are some interpolation methods that go through all the given points such as Lagrange interpolation or polynomial interpolation etc. However, interpolation method such as cubic spline interpolation does not necessarily pass through all the given data points.
