According to the data of order below, how
to calculate the rate of sales increase in each month?

Obviously,
the rate of increase in February should be (D58-D2)/D2, which is a typical inter-row
computation. The
tough problem for traditional business spreadsheet
software is that the traditional business spreadsheet software only allows
for manual formulas entering. Copying or dragging formulas to other cells will
only lead to the wrong result. For example, copy a formula to the cell of
March, as shown in below figure:

75-fold
increase? Obviously wrong! The correct formula should be (D113-D58)/D58, while the
resulting formula by copying is (D113-D57)/D57. The reason for this phenomenon is that the traditional business
spreadsheet software only allows for the rigid formula-pasting based on the
relative positions, lacking the intelligent adjustment mechanism.

Obviously,
if the data volume is huge, entering all formulas manually will be such a pain
and error-prone.

Then,
let’s talk about esCalc. As brand new business spreadsheet software reputed for
great computing capability, esCalc is highly expected on this problem.

The
same data is shown below:

In esCalc, you only need to input the formula once to solve
this problem! For example, enter (D58-D2)/D2 for February, and the result is shown below:

No doubt you’ve seen that all computations are finished by entering
the formula for once. No need to copy or adjust the formula. Take the formula
for March for example, it is (D113-D58)/D58, just the same as I expected.

esCalc boasts an unique homocell model which arranges cells
not in a simple relative positions, but in an auto-established business
association. The immediate benefit is that the formulas will be copied
automatically, that is, the formula will be copied and pasted to the cells at
the same business level automatically. In the above-mentioned case, for the
March, April, and February bands, the respective cell in the respective summery
row can be regarded as the homocells to each other. Therefore, the formula
written in the cell of February will be copied and pasted to the corresponding
cells of March and April.

Needless to say, such copying is not the migration of the
relative positions in the traditional business spreadsheet software. This is a
kind of Intelligent Migration, for example, migrate the formula for February to
the homocell for March, as mentioned above.

Through the auto-pasting and intelligent migration of
formulas, esCalc can relieve the great amount of manual work. Because it is
implemented automatically, the possibilities of errors are also reduced
greatly.

Seeing is believing. The computational capability of esCalc,
as legend has it, is truly powerful. Let Excel trembles at esCalc!
