Column M - Method A

Column M in Method A is telling you to put a "=M$10" in each row for each tenant. Does that mean that all floors will be the same?

Also does the "M" in"=M$10" mean column M? For example, if for some reason you had the spread sheet set up as Column M(BOMA Book) being Column R(excel spread sheet) would the "M" become "R"?

Hi Brad,

Yes, "=M$10" means that it is the same for each tenant on a floor by floor basis. It is a bit redundant though. We normally show just the R/U Ratio on the floor total row.

The "M" refers to the column and the "10" refers to the row number. The calculations used in the BOMA book were designed to work with Excel. If "M" is equivalent to"R" in your Excel spreadsheet than use "R".
