How can I calculate amount of time left based on amount spent?
I need a way to calculate time left based on how much has been spent to date.
I have an original amount, and a period that the money has been set up to be spent in, so I need a way to calculate how long we have to spend it based on what was spent previously.

Assuming a linear rate of spending, you could obtain the percentage
spent so far (i.e. money spent divided by total amount), and then multiply this by the overall period in which you have to spend the money. However, this makes a lot of assumptions. If you add the start date to the overall period, then you will have the end date, and if you subtract the function TODAY() from this it will give you the number of days remaining (or however you format it). Hope this helps. Pete

How can I calculate amount of time left based on amount spent?
Okay maybe this will help:
I have $500,000. I have six months time in which this money must be spent, or lost. I got the funds 4/1. In April, I spent $120,000. I need the formula to tell me how long I would have if I kept spending $120,000 a month. I'll change the cell refrence on a monthly basis, that way if I spend $135,000 in May, I will get a new calc. since obviously the funds would run out more quickly. Hope that helps!
