My first post. Interested in learning more about Excel. My new company is asking me to monitor Water Meters for various properties but they all come at different times each month with various days in between readings. They basically send them when they feel like it, and I'm having issues trying to compare them.
They want me to monitor to see if there are any excessive water meter readings to indicate leaks in their parks/buildings.
I'd like to visualize it and figure out a way to clean up the process. Also compare previous time frames like people use more water in the Spring/Summer but the dates of the bills don't always line up monthly.
I'm attaching two examples to show what I'm dealing with
Thank you so much and I'm excited to provide anything is needed!

With the data you show us all you can get is average consumption. Is this the format you get the files? With new files, do you have same data as in previous file plus new row for the latest invoiced consumption? What version of Excel do you have?

We get sometimes monthly, sometimes quarterly, sometimes yearly now with COVID-19 messing them up (There are like 11 properties all in different counties so each is different. We get a snail mail Water and Wastewater bill with usually Beginning and End Periods. Current Reading, Units Consumption, and the Charge.
Some give us total Gallons, Average Daily Gallons, and number or days. Others just Current reading and total Units consumed and charge.
Ideally I'd like to be able to create some sort of graphic to compare it for my non tech savvy owner of the company and somehow create a trigger that if something seems high when we are inputting these values it gets flagged.
Excel 2016 on this computer they gave me.
