# 2 Columns, 5 Averages Of Only Negative Numbers Query

May 2, 2007
I have 2 columns of data, one the description, the other the number, both positive & negative numbers, (the columns are also not next to each other). I need to average only the negative numbers according to the description.

I can sum only the negative numbers if I separate out the different descriptions, but cannot average the figure:

=SUMIF(E2:E300,"

I have a large dataset (24000 rows) that requires me to multiply two different columns of integers. In some cases, the two integers are both negative and multiplying them results in a product that is positive. I actually need that product to be negative rather than positive. I can't quite seem to figure out the best way to accomplish this.

I have data that comes from a subsytem that places the negative sign at the right of the number, so it is recognized as text. I can get around this using find and replace and then a second step to multiply that by -1, but is there a formula that can do this for me?

I was trying if(right(A1,1)="-",TBD,A1)

We are trying to get an Average between 2 columns that have the same conditions. We have been using an array formula succesfully on data that is on 1 column and I have trying to incorporate an Offset into the formula with no luck.

Here is our latetest attempt, WITHOUT THE OFFSET.

The data is in Column P and Column N

=AVERAGE(IF((('Mill Process Data'!N3:N6650,'Mill Process Data'!P3:P6650>.01)*('Mill Process Data'!N3:N6650,'Mill Process Data'!P3:P6650<.3))*(ISNUMBER('Mill Process Data'!N3:N6650,'Mill Process Data'!P3:P6650)),Mill Process Data'!N3:N6650,'Mill Process Data'!P3:P6650)))

I am trying to design a function that grabs an average of only numbers that are within a certain deviation of the mean. I got the plan down, and have done this before without VBA, its just a user defined function will be much quicker.

The gist of what I am doing: Find the standard deviation of a range and then only find the average of numbers that fall within n deviations from the mean. I am stuck with the part that I would normally use an array code for. Here is what my array would look like:

{=AVERAGE(IF((nums>high)*(nums

I have a column of variances, these contain both negative numbers and positive numbers. I want to gather a sum of all the negative numbers and positive numbers separtely. Basically saying all the positive overeages = this amount And all the negative shortages = this amount. you can see the attached sample.

Usually this question is asked the other way around, but I have a somewhat unique problem. A certain website gives out tables filled with numbers. Positive numbers show in black font and negative numbers show in red font, but unfortunately, negative numbers do not include the minus sign -- the font is red and that's it!

I need a macro (or any other solution) that will turn the red font numbers to negative ones and would possibly format the cell to show negative numbers in red (I guess the last part is easier). The main problem is searching for the red font numbers and turning them negative.

How can I get the sum of a range excluding any negative numbers?

I've thought about using a new column and using if statement to separate but it would be easier if i could use the same column.

I'm trying to sum negative numbers using the following formula, however for some reason it's not working in the way that it would if I flipped the < to a > sign.

=SUMPRODUCT((Data!$AB$10:$AB$3222=$C$58)*(Data!$L$10:$L$3222=D57)*(Data!$W$10:$W$3222

I have a very simple formula which is basically one cell minus another "=A1-B1".

When the values are equal, the cell this formula is in will display a zero. However, when the subtracted figure is greater than the first figure, i will then get a minus figure E.g. 10-11 = -1.

How can i make it that when the formula result is less than zero (i.e. a minus number) the figure displayed stays at zero but still using the minus funciton? Basically once it hits zero i need it to stop subtracting. This may be really simple but i cant figure it out.

I want to key-in positive numbers, which I really want Excel to interpret as being NEGATIVE numbers. In other words, I want to avoid repeatedly striking the MINUS key. How do I:

Format these Data-Entry cells to this?

Format these Data-Entry cells to return RED displays?

I'm using Excel 2000

I have constructed an inventory formula, subtracting Current Inventory (CI) from Required Inventory (RI), to generate a number of how many new products must be Ordered: RI-CI=O. The problem is that if CI exceeds RI, I get a negative number for "O".

Question: How can I structure the formula to give a zero for any sum less than 1?

I used this code to extract the value on the text: "11/09/09 backyard $400"

=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("back",A4)),RIGHT(A4,LEN(A4)-FIND("$",A4))+0,"")

and return "400" but i've encountered a value which is negative (could be

-$400, or ($400); and i got an error of #value, could anyone resolve this problem?

IF formula

=IF(D9="","",IF(AND(G9>0,G10>0),"",IF(G9>=G10,G9,G10))+IF(E10=0,"",E10))

G9 and G10 can be positive or negative. If G9 or G10 is a negative number,

I want the greater of the two to be used and then to be added to E10. But

right now, Excel is saying -20 (which is G10) is greater than zero. I'm

getting a VALUE error.

I have been working on an excel sheet:

I am working with stock options. Therefore I must subtract the current stock price Cell C2, which has a value of 23 with the Options price which is D9, has a value of 34.79 then muliply it with the shares which is cell F9 which is 4000. So the formula that i have is (C2-D9)*F9 that gives me the sum which resides in cell I9(total outstanding profit).......This turns out to be a negative number. I want to make it so that if the sum of that formula produces a negative number, i want that negative number to just become a "0". Ive tried the IF function but could not produce any results.

I would like to see that I am continually saving on a per-day basis (as well as overtime). I allowance myself an allowance each day, but some days, I need to spend more money than that. The best solution I have to is keep a running total for myself, so that each day is affected by the preceding days. Therefore, if I spend too much, I now have a small defecit that needs to be corrected. This method keep me on track as far as saving and spending.

Question (and I copied the actual data from my spreadsheet):

Without having to manual enter the final calculations (because this is just a simple part of an overall larger, more complex spreadsheet), can I generate the values in my Value Change row, based on the information from my Running Total row?

For example, Day 1 to Day 2, I was able to incease my running total from 233 to 354 (meaning that I had saved +121 that day). Of course, this is an easy subtraction problem (Day 2 - Day 1 = Value Change). From Day 2 to Day 3, I spent way too much. The running total fell to -1198, meaning that I spent 1552 too much (that day's value change is -1552). Again, this an easy subtraction (Day 3 - Day 2 = Value Change, just like the first example). From Day 3 to Day 4, I was able to reduce my running total -1063, meaning that I was able to save 135 that day. This is my problem. Day 4 - Day 3 does not equal the value change of + 135. To get this value, the preceding formula now has to change to ABS(Day 3) - ABS(Day 4).

This is the issue. I need a formula that can work normally when the numbers are postive or when the second value is larger (in terms of absolute value). On the other hand, it needs to recognize the special cases like Day 3 - Day 4. Is this some form of a conditional function?

Running Total 233354-1198-1063-878-658-933-807-657

Percentage Change51.93%-438.42%11.27%17.40%25.06%-41.79%13.50%18.59%

Value Change121-1552135185220-275126150

Do you know if you can use the cell formatting to change the sign of a number? For example, the cell contains 123.45, but I want it to show as -123.45. I dont want to use a formula to multiply by -1, because the data is being extracted from a database and I have to do a fair amount of work on the report with the formulas to do that.

I can format the number and it shows a minus but will not use the minus if I then use it in a calcualtion. I could use a calcualtion with a *-1 in it but for ease of use by other users who may take part of the Excel report it would be better if I could format the number to negative.

In an excel column listing monthly payments, I cannot report a negative value . I need to "carry forward" the negative value by automatically adding it to the next positive cell in the column. This process should loop through the column leaving no negative numbers, leaving a zero in any cell where the negative number was originally and balance out to be the same amount as the sum of the original listing of monthly payments.

I am using the following format code for the y axis of a line chart. I am shortening the axis to show 3M or 500K instead of $3,000,000 or $500,000. I can't get it to work with negative numbers, I get the full $3,000,000. Somewhere I read you can only do 3 formats in a formula. Is there a way to include negative numbers using this formatting?

[>999999]$#,,”M”;[>999]$#,”K”;$#

I am currently using the following format to display numbers in my excel.

_(* #,###,###_);_(* (#,###,###);_(* "-"_);@

The brackets and underscores are used so that the positive and negative numbers align with overhanging brackets.

I want to modify the format such that it is able to display decimals where ever applicable.

For example

1,000 display as 1,000

0 display as a dash "-"

1.265 display as 1.265

-0.51 display as (0.51)

I tried changing it to:

_(* #,###,###.###_);_(* (#,###,###.###);_(* "-"_);@

However it added a "." to all positive and negative numbers regardless of whether there were decimals after it.

e.g.

10 displayed as 10.

-30 displayed as (30.)

In otherwords - I am trying to find the "general" format and modify it to include brackets for negative number, and also modify it so that the positive numbers aligning with the negative numbers with the ) over hanging.

I don't know how to manipulate the formula with quoting the "You can't have cups less than zero".

Teletubbies coffee - Nested If

Create a nested If function to describe the Teletubbies coffee drinking habits based on the following criteria:

0 cups = Tea drinker

1-5 cups = Normal

More than 5 cups = Caffeine fiend

Copy the function down and check that it works.

How to structure the If function

Try modifying the If function so that if Cups of coffee is a negative number you see an appropriate error message. Make sure the rest of the function still works!
