Question

I'm trying to find out how to havereturn Barclays Base Rate of interest for a list of dates.

I have the figures for the base rate and the periods for which these figures applied. (In two columns of data: 1) the start dates of each change in the interest rate figure, and 2) what that new figure is)

I also have a list of dates (on a separate sheet)

I would like to be able to havelook at each date, identify which "base rate period" it falls under, and create a new column showing the base rate at that date.

Sorry if my question's unclear. I'll happily give more info if necessary.


Kind regards.

Sam

Answer

Sam,

You didn't ask me this question - I found it in the question pool. If you only asked one expert, then you won't get an answer from that person. I can give you an answer, but I would need to see where you lists are and so forth. If you want to send me a copy of your workbook I can furnish you the formulas.

send it to (I can appreciate you might have sensitive information - so if you can just send the sheet with just the Base rates and the second sheet with just some representative dates in the correct locations, it shouldn't take but a minute or two to set up.)
