Hello, I’m Libre Calc newbie that never went beyond SUM function. I have a complex and specified problem- I don’t expect help, but if there is even a slight chance I’ll get it, it’s worth trying, so
I have three sheets:
- Governments revenues in domestic currency (sheetA),
- exchange rates- US$ per national currency (sheetB),
- and a sheet where I need government revenues shown in $dollars (sheetC).
SheetA has columns with countries and revenue type listed (central gov/general) and rows with years listed. XY positions are different countries revenues in domestic currency in exact year. I need each XY position to correspond with SheetB which has three columns: country name, year and corresponding exchange rate.
Now I need to match SheetA country name column and year row with SheetB country name and year columns in a way that revenue in domestic currency A is multiplied by exchange rate B then value is returned to required C cell.
Thus, SheetC is built like SheetA - two columns with country name and revenue type (central government/general) and one row with years, giving accurate SheetA XY positions. For curious- next I will compare 2000 private corporations and their factors with countries organisations in a scale of time, and try to make sense of their relative dynamics.
