# AVERAGE Without Range Ignoring Blanks

Jan 4, 2009

Trying to determine the best way to do this. I understand that the standard AVERAGE function will ignore blanks if given a range; the function I'm using does a search for a particular value to determine if a value is to be included in the averaging: ...

## Average Column With Positive Or Negative Number - Ignoring Zero And Blanks

Dec 5, 2011

I have a column of numbers that are derived with a formula. I need to Average only the ones that either have a Positive or Negative number, ignoring blanks or zero.

I have tried Search but couldn't find anything that address both blank and zero.

Sheet2

K610.00%624.76%632.53%6418.75%65666.38%6768-4.00%6970-5.84%710.86%

Excel tables to the web : [URL] .......

With this small sample, the answer should be 3.35% according to Excel when I choose just those neg and pos cells.

## Ignoring Blanks In A Dynamic Named Range

I used each of the following codes for dynamic name ranges.

## IF Formula - Get Average Of Only Values In That Range Not Including Blanks

Nov 21, 2011

I am looking for a formula for the following:

If there is nothing is U6:W6 return blank

Otherwise sum the contents of Bf6:BH6 and divide by the number of cells that are not empty in the range U6:W6 (to get an average of only the values in that range not including blanks).

## Ignoring Blanks When Calculating SUM

Aug 12, 2014

I am using a simple SUM formula like this, =SUM(D10:E10). I would like for the SUM cell to be left blank until a value is entered into the cells D10. Currently it calculates the SUM as 0.

## SUM Last 6 Cells With Data (ignoring Blanks In Between)

Aug 8, 2014

I want to count back the last 6 cells in column S which has data (ignoring any blank cells) and add them up.

My data is ranging betwen S62:S143 (with S144 being the cell that I want to show the total for the last 6 cells with data). I have column headings and various other bits of data from S1:S61 that I want to exclude completely but need to keep for historical purposes.

Here is an example of some of the data in column S:

56
BLANK CELL
BLANK CELL
BLANK CELL
45
34
BLANK CELL
BLANK CELL
37
BLANK CELL
BLANK CELL
42
BLANK CELL
46
49
BLANK CELL
BLANK CELL
36
35

This is my formula so far:

=SUM(OFFSET(S62,0,0,COUNTA(S62:S143)))

I have tried adding a negative and positive number on the end of the COUNTA formula but all it does is count all the cells within that given heigh range, not a specific number of cells with data.

I don't specifically need to use SUM. As long as I get a total.

## Sequentially Number List Ignoring Blanks?

Feb 7, 2014

I have a column of week numbers but some gaps in the list (e.g. the job is complete and so I do not want to reference it) I am trying to create a list of jobs by week number. I need to sequentially number jobs to then use Vlookup e.g. job1-week1 job2-week1 etc to display be week.

I can work out to number the list ignoring the blanks but then resetting to 1 with each new week?

## Concatenate Cells, Ignoring Blanks, Then Trim

Jul 16, 2008

=IF(Z2="","",Z2&","&IF(AA2="","",AA2&",")&IF(AB2="","",AB2&",")&IF(AC2="","",AC2&","))

I'm using the above formula to join text from columns Z through AC, separated by a comma. I now want to remove the comma at the end of the new string. Also, I would prefer it if the four cells were separated by a slash rather than a comma, but when I simply replace the commas in the formula with slashes I get an error.

## List First Instance Only Ignoring Blanks In ROWS

Dec 11, 2008

I have a set up of investments. Say A1 through to G1. Then on the next row the investments range from A1 to G1 again. This continues down many rows. There are spaces such as D1 and D2 through E2.

A
B
C
D
E
F
G
1
ausbil........................

Starting in column H, I would like to list the investments but ignore investments that have already appeared on the row (ie list only the first occurence) and ignore the blanks as well. For example, D1, E1, F1 are to be ignored because of the blank, and the fact that ausbil and amp already appear.
In row 2, the blanks in D2 and E2 are ignored as well as the repeated 'amp' in F2. So the table should look like below from column H:

H
I
J
K
1
ausbil
amp
vanguard
bt
2
amp
becton
fidelity
bt

Is there a simple formula for this? It has to be in rows as I have at least 60 columns of data before these columns begin. There are at least 300 rows.

## Ignoring Blanks Or Criteria In Copying Data Between Sheets

Jun 23, 2014

Example.xlsx

I am wanting to have a sheet that I use for reporting based on another sheet in the workbook but I want to exclude items that are closed.

The first sheet will contain all rows of data with a status column of either Open, On Hold or Closed
In the second sheet I only want to have listed the items which are Open or On Hold, I want to ignore the closed items.

In the example enclosed, I only want rows 2,4,6 and 7, but NOT 3 and 5 due to status.

## Copy And Paste Using VBA Ignoring Blanks And Stacking Data

Jun 15, 2012

I have a spreadsheet with a bunch of formulas in Cells B4:E100 in Sheet1. Many of the formulas will show up blank information in the event I do not have any data in Column A. I then have formulas which perform a similar function in Cells G4:Q100, S4:AC100, AE4:AO100 & AQ4:BA100.

What I need to do is to take the data from the last 4 sets of cells (G4:Q100, S4:AC100, AE4:AO100 & AQ4:BA100) and stack then one on top of the other into Sheet2 starting in Cell A2. I need the code however to be smart enough to realize that if there are blanks which exist in any of those sets of cells to skip over to the next set of data I which to copy and start pasting that set of information without leaving any blanks.

So far example, if I only have data between Cells A4:A25, I want the VBA code to go only through cells G4:Q25 and then start pasting without any spaces S4:AC25 and so on.

## Array Formula Not Ignoring Blanks To Count Row Number?

Oct 3, 2012

I have this array formula

=IF(ROWS(A\$11:A13)1,IF(MSB!\$A13"",SMALL(ROW(Table1[APP DATE])-ROW(MSB!\$A\$11)+1,ROWS(A\$11:A13)),""))))

the problem is that when both if statements are true i want it to get the row number, this is because table1 has blank rows (can not be avoided as the data is linked from a closed workbook)

i can see this works up until it meets the first blank row and i get #value error.

on table1 data exists on row 1,2,5 and 8 so my problem is getting the small function k to report these numbers?

## Sumproduct Ignoring Keyword And Skipping Zeros / Blanks And Words

Oct 25, 2013

I am trying to create a weighted average which will skip any row when Column B say's "yes" and then if Column N contains, a 0, I would like that to be skipped as well. The below works for skipping any row with the word "Yes", but it still includes 0 in the weighted average. Also, let's say the Column N contains a word and 0's, how can I skip that?

=SUMPRODUCT((\$B\$13:\$B\$15="Yes")*(\$I\$13:\$I\$15)*(N13:N15))/SUMIF(\$B\$13:\$B\$15,"Yes",\$I\$13:\$I\$15)

## Average Ignoring Holidays

Jan 11, 2009

If I have a formula which adds the value of each day of the week and divides by 7 to get an average per day, how do i fix it to get an average if their is a holiday so their would only be 6 days without changing the formula as the holidays could change from week to week by province.
=(a+b+c+d+e+f+g)/7 what happens if "e" is a holiday and I need to divide by 6, or in the case of xmas if "d and e" are holidays and I need to divide by 5?

## Average While Ignoring Zeros And Errors?

Feb 14, 2013

I'm trying to return the average, min and max values of a range that will have errors, be blank or have zeros. I have already found an array formula that works getting rid of the errors but the zeros are now a problem.

{=AVERAGE(IF(NOT(ISERROR(D27:G27)),D27:G27))}

I was thinking that an OR might be needed but for the life of me can't figure out where it belongs. I will also be using this formula with both MIN and MAX in the adjacent cells so it would be great if all I have to do is swap those in for AVERAGE. I'm not keen on how array formulas work, just found an example similar to this on the interwebs, and I'm curious why if the array brackets are removed the value returned is 0 and not an error.

Workbook is proprietary so VB is locked and not an option (not sure if it was but wanted to be clear).

## Ignoring Cells While Calculating Average

Oct 18, 2009

I want to average the cells in column B but ignore values in the corresponding rows with a 1 or 7 in column C.

This will be used in a years data where 1 - 7 are days of the week and I want to separate weekdays from weekends when calculating an average.

## Calculating Rolling Average Ignoring 0 Values

Jun 6, 2014

What I have is a spreadsheet with a whole bunch of sporting data on it. see attachment for an idea of the layout, Stats.jpg

In these data each round a player is given a rating. What I want to do is calculate is the average rating for each player across the last 3 and 5 games they have played. When a player misses a game they get a rating of 0 for the round. I want 0 ratings to be ignored in the running averages. Additionally, games yet to be played have a 0 in the cell and should be ignored. To get overall averages ignoring 0's was simple I used the averageif function, but I couldn't figure out how to use that but only extract the last 3 non 0 values. I currently have data up to round 12, so if a player has played in 12, 11 and 10 then the 3 round average should just be the average of these 3, but if they missed for example round 11 then the 3 round average should return the average of 9, 10 and 12.

The data is set out in the following way.

In column B I have a list of player names from cells B3:B618.

Across row 1 from N1:AM1 are labels "round 1" "round 2" etc.

The ratings for each player in each round are in N-AM and from 3-618. i.e. N3:AM3 contains the weekly rating for player 1, 4 contains player 2 etc.

I would like the 3 round averages to be returned for each player in column L and 5 round averages in column M.

## How To Average Large Formulas Ignoring 0 And Blank

Jun 20, 2014

So in Cell K12 there is a rather large formula (I condensed it for this example).

This formula is to average out the respective cells in column J. For each cell there is a possibility of 9 different entries. NRT, N/O, 1,2,3,4,5,6,7

So based on the formula in K12 I need Cell J12 to Display the answer.

if any one of the Cells referenced in the formula are NRT then I need it to Display NRT. Which the Formula does now.

The problem comes in when a Cell is N/O (Not Observed)

How do I get the formula to Ignore N/O currently I have it set up to recognize N/O as 0. But excel averages 0 in and it affects the answer.

I know in a simple formula I can add <>0 to the formula to ignore zeros. How to write it into a bigger formula such as in K12.

For example the current numbers in Cells J17:J25 should average 5 however the formula averages it as 1 because it calculates N/O as 0.

## Average Of VLookups Ignoring Blank Cells

Oct 24, 2011

I am trying to get a rolling 8wk avg of a large group of data. I am trying to take the avg of 8 vlookups:

=AVERAGE(VLOOKUP(\$A\$9,'Raw Data'!\$A:\$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!\$2:\$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP(\$A\$9-7,'Raw Data'!\$A:\$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!\$2:\$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP(\$A\$9-14,'Raw Data'!\$A:\$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!\$2:\$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP(\$A\$9-21,'Raw Data'!\$A:\$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!\$2:\$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP(\$A\$9-28,'Raw Data'!\$A:\$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!\$2:\$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP(\$A\$9-35,'Raw Data'!\$A:\$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!\$2:\$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP(\$A\$9-42,'Raw Data'!\$A:\$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!\$2:\$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP(\$A\$9-49,'Raw Data'!\$A:\$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!\$2:\$2,0), FALSE))

However, in some cases, the cell to be looked-up may be blank. Using the formula above, the result of these vlookups is "0". I want to take the average of these vlookups excluding the blanks from the 'Raw Data' sheet.

## Average Data Columns Ignoring Hidden Rows And Zero Values

Aug 30, 2013

I need to average the columns of data and ignore both hidden rows and zero values. I have tried writing if statements as well as the subtotal function. Both functions either ignore null values or hidden rows but not both.

The system wont let me update a sample workbook but Im wondering whether there is a formula or combo formula for this.

## Mitigating Blanks With Arrays AVERAGE(IF(

Jul 21, 2009

I'm using an arrays AVERAGE(IF( to average several scores from one spreadsheet to another. However, if I have 30 employees, 1 may have no score, and I don't want that no score to factor into the average, but with the above array, it does.
Specifically, I get the wrong average for Score A, but the right one for Overal Score. See attached sample.

## Skip Any Blanks Rather Than Count Them In The Average

Jan 16, 2007

I want to figure a class average for a test, but I have students that have moved. My Excel is automatically counting them as a zero. How can I program/tell Excel to skip any blanks rather than count them in the average?

## Average & Count Zeros But Not Blanks

Apr 19, 2006

I am trying to make a excell spread sheet that will calculate my students averages for the year. I need to account for zeros in the coarse and I want this excel sheet to track the current average all year long . So I do not need to include my blanks in the average as I go. Also , how do I formulate my average accum to show this formula - Test scores, four of them count as 80% of the total grade. So each test is worth 20% / Lab 10% of total grade and homework is additional 10%. I downloaded the templete from MSN and have tweaked it to my liking except for the coding above. Please advise. I am a below par on Excel. My attachemtn is below of my templete. One note. the templete gave me the room to include 13 ros of homework - but I will not necessarily use all of them... I can make it one row for home work only ....

## Sum & Average Including Zeros But Not Blanks

Aug 14, 2007

Attached is an xls with my formulas and problem. We need a way to factor in zeros in grading student workers. However, we also need a way to omit blank or null cells if the workers did not do a particular project. The formulas currently in the sheet compute zeros for both scenarios, lowering the overall 'grade' for workers who didn't do a project compared with workers who did the project but got a '0'

## Omit Blanks From Conditional Average

Oct 22, 2007

I have a formula to calculate an average value for a reference range:

= SUMIF(DATA!B32:B61,"<># div/0")/MAX(1,COUNTIF(DATA!B32:B61,))

Because these cells are references the blanks are being treated as zeros so I am getting an inaccurate average value.

Is there a way to make it so it will treat blanks as blanks? I need the zeros to be zeros.

## Average Omitting Blanks / Zeros

Feb 12, 2008

I have run into a problem with the array formula. After inserting formula with the CTRL+SHFT+Enter it is giving me the same sum to the 3 cells that I had array formulas in but trying to capture different data from what was in the capturing column. Example:

If row F consists of text types: Move-in, Mid Year, and Year End as potential options,and row G is the score for that text type(cells will consist percentages), give me the average of all the cells in row G that are specific to Move-In only, but don't include the blanks in the average.

My existing formula isn't designated to exclude the blanks. how to exclude blanks and how to get it to stop giving me the same result in the three separate cells. My current formula is as such: {=AVERAGE(IF(F2:F73=E76, H2:H73))}

## Get Average Of Last 6 Data Entries Not Including Blanks Or Zeroes

Jul 22, 2014

I am trying to get the average of the last 6 data entries not including blanks or zeroes.

Currently I have:

{=AVERAGE(INDEX(C2:CP2,LARGE(IF(C2:CP2<>"",COLUMN(C2:CP2)-COLUMN(C2)+1),6)):CP2)}

Which works fine when I've got 6 or more values in the row.

But if there are less that 6 values in the row it returns with #NUM!. Is there a way to add an IF ERROR THEN make = to AVERAGE of C2:CP2?

## Conditional Moving Average Omitting Adjacent Blanks

May 4, 2008

how do I perform calculations on the last x non-blank instances in a data range?
for example, let's say I have a spreadsheet of 5 baseball players' batting averages (rows are team game number played, columns are at bats and hits for each player). I want to see how each player has performed in their last 10 games played, but some players have not played in every game. If I just use the sum function for the last 10 cells, I won't get the correct information for any player that has missed one or more of the last 10 games.
