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.

`=LN(C6/C4)/LN(1+C5)`

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,

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.

Hello SANJAY DANGI,

Thank you for reaching out. You can add attachment to the email in the first method easily. Follow these steps to do it.

• In this example, we want to attach a file named Attachment.pdf. The path directory for the file is D:\Exceldemy\.

• First, download the workbook provided in this article and open it.
• Next, add a new column (H) and write the file names you want to attach to the email. Make sure to write the file extension.

• Then, open the code module and write the following code.

```Sub ExcelToOutlookSR() Dim mApp As Object Dim mMail As Object Dim SendToMail As String Dim MailSubject As String Dim MailBody As String Dim FileName As String Dim Path As String 'Declare variable for file path Path = "D:\Exceldemy\" 'Set file path For Each r In Selection SendToMail = Range("C" & r.Row) MailSubject = Range("F" & r.Row) MailBody = Range("G" & r.Row) FileName = Range("H" & r.Row) 'Get file name from H column Set mApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application") Set mMail = mApp.CreateItem(0) With mMail .To = SendToMail .Subject = MailSubject .Body = MailBody .Display .Attachments.Add (Path & FileName) 'Add attachment End With Next r Set mMail = Nothing Set mApp = Nothing End Sub```

• After writing this code, go back to the excel sheet.
• Then, select one or more names and click on the button.

• As a result, Microsoft Outlook software will open and you will find the email already written with the attached file. You can just click send to send the Email.

6. Hello Theo,

Follow these steps to adjust ranges to make a longer list without any error.

1. First, to make the task list longer, select cells H13 through J13. Then drag the fill handle down to add new task.

2. In this example, we added five new tasks. Therefore, the new ranges for column H, I and J are H6:H18, I6:I18 and J6:J18 respectively.

3. Then select cell D6 and change the ranges of H,I and J cells in the formula bar and press Enter. After that, Autofill formula up to cell D9.

4. Similarly, change the formula ranges for other cells as well.

5. Finally, you can see in the following figure that the formula is working properly.

I hope this solves your problem. Please let us know if you face any other issues.
