# Average Function And Not Count The Blank Cells

Jul 10, 2008
I've got a spreadsheet that I do every month with columns of numbers that I average. This sheet has to match about 10 others similar. The columns are divided by Weekdays, Saturdays, Sundays. But some months there are no entries for certain cells on Saturday or Sunday.

I thought that if I just used the Average function, it would dismiss and not count the blank cells. Alas, apparently not. I've highlighted in yellow the one column that I'm really having trouble with.

sumif problem but it wont work with a countif or average if.

Column A has various names and Column B has amounts, what I need is to count the number of occurances "John Smith" has an amount in Column B. The previous formula I tried was

=sumif(A:A,"John Smith",B:B) but with either countif or averageif it errors too many arguements.

I wasn't sure if Dcount or an array would be suitable but have not used them before.

Pivot tables I'm sure will be the future with this but haven't got to the foot of that mountain yet.

I have a spreadsheet that contains developer related data. I want to be able to do a weekly analysis of average construction time and costs. The problem I am running into is properties enter rehab phase and exit rehab phase throughout the week.

For example:

I want to know the average $ spent and total rehab time week 1 of april. I may have 4 homes that entered rehab that week and 3 that move out of rehab that week. Moreover, I need to ensure those homes that entered and are still in rehab for that week are counted. How do I accomplish this feat?

I can count the blank cells withiin a range using

=COUNTBLANK(C6:AD2506)

But I dont want it to count the cells if the entire row, within that cell, i.e. C6:AD6, is blank.

It should only count the blank cells within a row if there has been some data entered on that row..provided it has been entered within the specified range.

My Macro opens an excel file and I've to count the number of blank spaces for every filled column. I'm using CountBlank function for that.

But, the code fails at the countBlank line by saying Type Mismatch.

Code:

Sub Snippet_Code()

Dim apdata as excel.application, wbdata as workbook

set apdata = new excel.application

Set wbData = apData.Workbooks.Open(Filename:="ABCD.xlsx")

For colnum = 1 to 50 'Columns from 1 to 50

[Code] .......

My code fails at the BlnkCnt part. I also tried assigning the two cell addresses in two variables and passing the variables to the range method. But there again, I get the error of Method Range of class _Global Failed.

What might be the error?

I am having a dilemma on getting the average for the first 3 non blank cells. This is how my data looks like :

I don't know any formula that will disregard the non blank cell and will get the average of the firs 3 non blank cells from the right.

I was curious if it is possible to give a single cell multiple number formats based on what the number is in the cell. So for example if my number is bigger than 1000, I would like to use comas so that it looks like this 1,000. However, if it is less than 1000 I would like it to look more like this 999.00.

I have a problem and I found a good explanation of something similar here:

[URL]

In the original posting the following formula solves the problem (attached) TestData.xlsx

B1: =AVERAGE(INDEX(B3:B100,MATCH(TRUE,B3:B100<>0,0)):INDEX(B3:B100,MATCH(TRUE,B3:B100<>0,0)+4))

What I would like to return is the average of the 1st 5 values, but what if a number of cells after the first value were also blank

I am doing an average of a column of cells. How do I tell excel to ignore the blank cells in the column and not calculate them in the average?

I have a scenario where I have a rolling list of sales figures which get added to each week that passes.

I need a formula that will calculate the last 5 weeks of sales and generate an average - which I think I have an idea how to do.

The sticking point is that so as not to skew the averages, when there has been an exceptionally busy or quiet day for a reason we know about I exclude the sales from that week.

This then interferes with the averages as it either takes it as a zero and lowers it or seems to stop formulas from working.

So to summarise:

Average of last 5 weeks sales

Excluding any blanks

Dynamic enough to always pick up the last 5 values in the list (i.e. the last 5 weeks)

I have an array formula that calculates the average of numbers between two dates:

{=AVERAGE(IF('Date Range'!$B:$B>$H$4,IF('Date Range'!$B:$B<=$B$3,'Numbers to Sum'!$C:$C)))*100}

The start date is the day after the date in H4 and the end date is in cell B3. The dates are in column B and the numbers to sum associated with these dates are in column C.

Some of the cells in column C are blank and my formula is taking these blanks into account in calculating the average, while I would prefer not to count them in the calculation.

Can someone please suggest how I could amend the formula above to accommodate this?

I have a column of data that contains various blank cells where no data was measured. In the adjacent column I want to take the moving average of the last 4 data points including the most recent entry. My problem is i do not know how to handle blank cells where there was no data. I need it to average the last four in the column where data acutally exists. I am ok with using helper cells if needed and I am not worried about the first four results at this time.

Example data

A..................B

15

50

25

20................55

Blank............55

30................31.25

35................27.5

blank............27.5

blank............27.5

15................25

10................22.5

15................18.75

40................20

blank.............20

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.

I have a sequence of 40 columns of data, representing 10 weeks worth of events with 4 values per week

I need to average the first pair for each week, ignoring zeros and blanks, and also separately the 2nd pair of cells, across the whole 40 columns

I am trying to come up with a neater solution which takes into account the zeros, at the moment I have the following which does not, for row 34

=IF($AR34>0,ROUND(AVERAGE(D34:E34,H34:I34,L34:M34,P34:Q34,T34:U34,

X34:Y34,AB34:AC34,AF34:AG34,AJ34:AK34,AN34:AO34)*2,2),0)

I could use SUM, COUNT COUNTIF etc but its gonna get messy

Is it possible to show "0" zero in the total average column without inputing zeros in the blank cells in row B3:E3 & B4:E4? There are months we receive no boat & RV orders, so those months wll be zero most of the time. Instead of having #DIV/0! it show 0, without having to input zero in cells to compute the average.

Here is the formula I am using however it interprets the blank cells as 0% and includes it in the average. To make it more difficult there will be some 0%'s.

I'm looking for a function that will display the average of a row of cells, while at the same time not displaying any error messages. It's easy to average cells without blank values, but to combine that with no errors is difficult for me. I saw many ways to do the average, one of which is:

= SUM(A1:E1)/COUNTIF(A1:E1,">0")

That function doesn't work for a row of blank cells (i.e., hidden rows), though. The result is an error message.

I also read about a way to ignore an error in a computation:

=IF(ISERROR(F1),"",F1)

The problem is when I combine those functions I get a blank cell no matter which function I put first, and without regards to cell values or not. The reason I want this to be error-free is that I have to average the "average column" at the bottom of the table, too (i.e., F100).

average i want to count.

Say i want to count the average from differnet selected cells say

cell A1,B4,C9,D10,E12

and some of the cells have the value 0 in them, so i don't want the formula to include these as long as they have the value 0.

I have tried to divide with a sumproduct and i can get i to work if it is cells next to each other like A1:A20, but not if i want to do it with different selected cells

I have data in Column A as follows:

A1 15

A2

A3 20

A4 56

A5 45

A6

A7 71

A8

A9 23

where cells A2, A6 and A8 are empty.

I want to be able to AVERAGE or SUM the first four nonblank cells. I know I could manually select the cells, but I have a spreadsheet with 30 columns and 40 rows, and the data (including empty cells) in each column is different.

Is there a single formula that will find the first four nonblank cells and then perform the AVERAGE or SUM function?

If I have numeric values in a cell examples c5 = 126, and d5 = 135. How do I place these values in c5 &d5 in another cell as a cell reference within the formula ex: =Average(f126:f135)

I have this formula which is counting the number of cells in a column that fall within each calender month.

However, if there is a formula at the bottom of column B and C that yield a "", the formula breaks.

In my workbook, B/C:133 have a formula =""

I will need the formula in column E to work if there is a formula that yields a "" in column B and C.

I'm trying to develop a new daily timesheet for my production workers, where non-production items are recorded in 15 minute intervals. The user would put in "Clock in" by the corresponding time, and the same for "Clock out" at the end of the day. Any non-production items will be type in next to their appropriate time. Since clock in and clock out times will vary, I need to set up a formula that searches the array of cells for the day, finds the "Clock in" and "Clock out" values, and counts any blank cells in between them. Basically the blank cells will equal production time, and the result of the Count function will be multiplied by 0.25 to get the hours.

I am having a very difficult time finding a way to set the "Clock in" and "Clock out" cells as the range for the Count function, because it won't always be the same cells. What would be the best way to automatically have excel find the cells containing these values and set them as the range criteria for a Count function?

The formula at the bottom was one of my initial attempts, but it didn't work. I took out the '=' for the screenshot, so that wasn't the problem.

how to make the average,median,max, and/or min functions ignore cells in the referenced range that contain the #value! error? All four of the functions are returning #value! because one or more in the referenced range have the error.

Getting a formula or macro that count the number of blank cells between 2 cells with data (numbers) in 1 column. E.g.

1

Blank

Blank

2

Blank

Blank

Blank

3

...

In this case the blanks between 1 and 2, between 2 and 3 to be displayed in an adjacent column.

I am trying out VBA to write a macro in order to average every 25 cells in a column. My attempt so far is

Dim myrow1 As Integer

Dim myrow2 As Integer

myrow1 = 2

myrow2 = 25

Range("G2").Select

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=AVERAGE(R " & myrow1 & " C3:R " & myrow2 & " C3)"

myrow1 = myrow1 + 24

myrow2 = myrow2 + 24

So I am hoping the first ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 gets read as =Average(C2:C25)

However I just get Run-time error '1004' Method 'FormulaR1C1' of object 'Range' failed.

I have a spreadsheet where a column has many cells being empty and others with values. I need to use copy-paste skip blanks to another column so it only overwrites cells that contains values. BUT The cells in the column appears to be empty, not blank, when I try use the copy-paste skip blanks it doesnt work. However, when I press delete in every empty cell the copy-paste skip blanks works for those cells.

Do you got a fast method to make all the empty cells blank?

how to create a macro that will count blank cells. I've tried several different variations of a basic 'count cells' macro, but I can't seem to find the right one.

If anyone would be kind enough to post a solution VBA, I would be extremely thankful, and so would my superiors. I'm an intern trying to get my foot in the door, and this would certainly be a first major step for me.
