Sales forecasts easily create: Use the FORECAST function (Please see the attached file).

=FORECAST(B8,C2:C7,B2:B7)

Margin:This value is usually calculated using the following formula:
Profit / turnover × 100% = profit margin.
(Sales - Cost of Products Sold) / Sales = Gross Profit Margin.
(Sales price - production costs) / production costs * 100 = surcharge.
Example: A bread costs € 0.74 to buy and € 1.29 to sell
That is then x percent margin.
Calculation : =1,29/0,74-1*100%
 

I would be happy to know if I could help.
