Excel 2003 :: Average Of Cells Which Are Not In Range Which Ignores Any Zero Values

Dec 4, 2013

I have a worksheet which has various figures for each day of the week however I need to establish the weekly average of these figures.

Due to the way in which the figures are displayed, I am unsure how to use a formula which does not require a range with cells located adjacent to one another.

I have attached a test sheet as an example. The cells in yellow require the formula and I need a weekly average for criteria 1-3. This formula also needs to be compatible in Excel 2003

I have a couple of issues and if its okay will post two threads to make it easier to follow due to my basic skills in Excel.

I have a workbook with 5 sheets. The first sheet is a stat sheet which picks up data from four other spreadsheets. I want to work out the average working days taken to complete a case but this data is across multiple sheets.

So for example Column E in each sheet tells you what type of case it is i.e. investigation. Then column T tells you number of workings day it took to complete the case. To work this out I have used the following formula:

I know its very basic but its the only way I know how to work out an average in Excel 2003. I need to add a second criteria where on every sheet it looks in column G for date the case was allocated. As I'm only looking to report in the current report year I want it to look for cases where the value in column G is =>01/04/14 but =<31/03/14.

Averages Monday=0 Tuesday=5 Wednesday=7.5 Thursday=0 (I have got a value return of 7.5) Friday=5 Saturday=0 (I have got a value return of 5) Sunday=0 (I have got a value return of 5)

I need to work out averages for cells higher than zeros, in other words, I need to ignore those.

Also say I have got an average of 5 by Tuesday and no number yet for the rest of the week, I still get an average of 5 for all days left which I do not want.

I am using excel 2003 and formula =SUM(RANGE)/COUNTIF(RANGE,">=0").

I would also like to hide the annoying #DIV/0! error.

range formula that i am using for drop-down lists. One of the drop down lists is based on the range where the data changes(it is a list of jobs that has been released from cad room and when they have been machined a "yes" in one of column appears and then it needs to be filtered so that only non-machined jobs are visible).

I need a formula that is not taking into account values from hiden rows. OR the formula that is not taking into account values from the rows that have Yes in the 4th column.

I need to average the figures in several cells. However some cells have a 0 in them.

I therefore want the formula to ignore the cells which have a zero.

I have used the AVERAGE & AVERAGEA function, but both count 0 cells. (although AVERAGEA ignores blank cells, I need to keep the 0s in as they are linked to another formula)

I have a sheet that column G and column H has duplicate values. I would like to be able to put a formula in a cell P4 that will search thru column G and column H and if there are any matching items then add the corrisponding number in column I.

So say cell G8, G25, and G30 have the same and H8 and H30 have the same value, i would like this to add the values of cell I8 and I30.

I'm using Excel 2003. I've got two different .XLS files, each with multiple sheets.

I'm trying to create a macro which will copy a range of cells from one sheet on one .XLS file (which is closed) to a specific place on a specific sheet on the current .XLS file (which is open).

So for the sake of argument:

I've got two Excel files: C:ApplesOldFile.xls and C:OrangesNewFile.xls

OldFile.xls is closed -- NewFile.xls is open and in front of me.

I'm trying to copy the data in ranges B6:C41 and F6:F41 from Sheet2 in OldFile.xls to the same ranges on Sheet6 in NewFile.xls. There are no formulas in these cells -- just data (numbers).

I keep getting error messages, failures to copy to clipboard, etc.

I'm stuck using Excel 2003 to auto-populate a cell.

I have a range of dates in five consecutive columns called:

Phase 1, Phase 2, Phase 3, Phase 4 and Phase 5

I enter the date that 'Phase 1' starts under the first header. Once Phase 2 starts I enter a date under 'Phase 2', and so on to Phase 5.

Each phase is consecutive to the next so will always be filled in from 1 to 5.

I want to create an additional column called 'Status' that shows the Column Title of the last phase with a date in it. For example, if Phase 1 to 3 had dates but 4 & 5 were blank, "Phase 3" would be displayed in the 'Status' column.

I've tried nesting some ISBLANK functions without any luck.

I need a cell formula that will (a) identify the highest N values in an above specified column range, (b) color the interior of those N cells (I suspect that this is not possible), and most importantly (c) return the average value of N corresponding cells, where the corresponding cells are located on the same rows as the identified N high value cells but in a specified column to the left (not necessarily adjacent)

Does anybody know what this formula would look like?

Example:

----------------------- ...| A | B | C | D | E | F | ------------------------- 1 |....| * |.........| 7 |... ------------------------- 2 |....................| 2 |... ------------------------- 3 |....| * |.........| 6 |... ------------------------- 4 |....................| 1 |... ------------------------- 5 |....| * |.........| 5 |... ------------------------- 6 |....................| ? |... -------------------------

? = average of B1,B3,B5 where (N = 3) and (specified column to the left = B)

I have a sheet set up with date in Column A, time in column C and numbers in column D, starting in row 2 down. I made a pivot table with the dates grouped by day, 7, to show a week and I can group the time by hours, 6am, 7am, 8am. but what I want to do is group the time for times between 2 times, like from 6:00 AM to 10:00 AM, 10:01 AM to 2:00 PM and 2:01 PM to 8:00 PM, what I am wanting to do is group by week, group by the times above and average the numbers for that time. Is there anyway to do this in a pivot table? Or some other way? this is for use in Excel 2003

Each of my data sets spans roughly 75 columns by 250 rows at present, but this could expand. The first 7 rows contain metadata. Columns 2-25 or so contain the raw data, from which everything to the right is calculated. The data sets have most columns in common, but not necessarily all.

In order to tease out the most meaningful information from my data, I frequently sort all or part of it based on varying criteria. When I find a useful sorting criterion, I create a new column with a header that describes the criterion and populate it with a formula that returns a 1 if the condition of interest is met for that row, or a 0 if it is not. For example, if I am doing this in column AA, I might enter

=--(AND($AX8>$AA$4,$Y8>0))

and copy it down to the end of the data. The resulting vector of 1s and 0s quickly re-identify data that meets that criterion even after subsequent resorting. It also makes locating data that meets multiple sorting criteria extremely simple. Essentially, I create a truth table.

Cell $AA$4 in the above example contains a "comparator" value I might wish to change at some point, which would change the subset of data the condition selects for.

Here's the first hard part:

For each data set, I need the ability to generate meaningful plots that includes separate series based on the criteria I have described. However, I also need to retain the ability to resort the data or change the comparator value without disrupting these plots. In other words, the plots must NOT change when the order of the data is changed, but MUST change to display the appropriate data when the comparator changes.

Here's the 2nd hard part:

Once I have this working for one data set, I need to be able to port it to other data sets (which are contained in other workbooks), so that I can compare equivalent plots from each. I also need to minimize the number of manual steps involved in doing so, to avoid human errors and excessive time consumption.

The only other possible complication I can think of at the moment is that, to this point, I have been inserting blank rows to isolate subsets that I do not wish to perform further sorting on from each other.

Right now I am angling toward VBA code that loops through the entire data set to generate base dynamic ranges using the column header row (row 1) as the names, and the entire column of data for the rangeloops through the truth table columns to generate "branch" row ranges for each of the sorting conditions,loops through the entire data set one more time to create "branch" ranges for each of the base ranges.

I could generate some code to accomplish a one-off solution for a given configuration of a single data set (provided there is not a list length limit in a chart series that I'd be violating)...but without a dynamic named range, I don't know how to get to something that would update appropriately. So in essence, I am still stuck at the dynamic range part of this.

I have saved this on a 2010 workbook as I am at home but this will be used on a 2003 workbook.

I have several projects on one spreadsheet which multiple users will be working and I am trying to create a summary sheet of the work carried out.

Each user is expected to carry out a task on each row of the data held in each worksheet (research, call, update etc) and each task (Option 1-5) is assigned a value. Each user is expected to meet a certain level of points per day to calculate productivity.

I am looking for a sumproduct along the lines of the summary sheet attached but mine just takes one sheet into consideration and I need one for all sheets.

Pretty straightforward: randomly and infrequently, Excel ignores my selection of the rear tray paper source on my MX870 Canon. Able to correct issue only by closing out and re-opening Excel.

I am trying to automate a process where a series of numbers would get populated according the range values. Also I am trying to get the automation to pick up the next range when finished with first one and continue with the task.

Here's what I have as start info and where I want to get to.

Is there a formula that would allow you to take the average of all values within a range but not count the zero values? I thought something like this might work but it's not. Neither one worked.

I have a row data corresponding to the measuring of load cell per min and I need to average the values per hour. So I have a column B for the date (from 1-01-2013 to 31-01-2013, column C for the time (0:00:00 to 23:59:00), and D de values per min I want to average. I have to do the same for the rest of the month of 2013 (February, ...., December).

I would like to know if there is a way to create a formula to calculate the average of the first 60 values (to get the average of the first hour of 1-01-2013), and then copy it to get the average of the following 60 (average of the second hour in 1-01-2013) and so on.

If there is no way to do it, I would like to know if I can do it using functions like average, match, index, offset, what would be the best match of those functions.

I also tried it by doing the analysis in another tab and using the function "averageifs" with two criterias: one for the date (example 01-01-2013) and another one for the hour (example 0:00:00), but it didnt work, it show error: #value. I inserted an extra column in the data tab with just the hour (example 0:00:00) in front of the corresponding column with (example 0:01:00, 00:02:00, etc) Equation I used for this:

=AVERAGEIFS('Data (min)'!D$6:D$43206,'Data (min)'!$A$6:$A$44646,A6,'Data (min)'!$B$6:$B$44646,B6) =AVERAGEIFS(TAB AND COLUMN WHERE THE RAW DATA IS,RANGE OF CRITERIA 1,CRITERIA 1,RANGE CRITERIA 2,CRITERIA 2)

I am trying to implement a count on a table that splits up the number of customers associated with a list of managers. Sample data attached.

Count function.xlsx

So, I need some way to display a single instance of each manager name with a count of how many customers are associated with that manager. The number of managers and the number of customers associated with each manager does vary and are displayed in separate columns per the attached.

Mercedes ________________Mercedes BMW ____________________Fiat Fiat _____________________BMW VW _____________________AUDI AUDI_____________________Jeep Jeep_____________________Porsche Porsche __________________Ferrari _________________________Lamborghini _________________________VW

As you can see, list 2 had some additions (Ferrari,Lamborghini) and a different overall order. I want to input the 2 additions on list 1 right after the last cell(Porsche). List 's 1 order cannot be changed. I have to do it on Excel 2003.

I am trying to conditionally format the top middle and bottom thirds of a range of data. Problem is, that the range needs to be flexible as sometimes there may be a maximum of 36 cells with data, but sometimes there may be less (so there are blank cells in the range that need not be counted). The methods I have tried always include the blank cells, and so it is not equally formatting the thirds (as it includes the blanks cells as part of the bottom data)....

Here are the 2 methods Ive tried so far using excel 2003) Top 34%: =IF(INT(COUNT($D$3:$D$38)*34%)>0,LARGE($D$3:$D$38,INT(COUNT($D$3:$D $38)*34%)),MAX( $D$3:$D$38))0,LARGE($D$3:$D$38,INT(COUNT($D$3:$D $38)*67%)),MAX( $D$3:$D$38))0,LARGE($D$3:$D$38,INT(COUNT($D$3:$D $38)*100%)),MAX( $D$3:$D$38))

Using Excel 2003. I have a data range for a graph. The values in the cells are the results of a simple If function - If(m28>0,n28,0). The results are taken from a larger data input exercise. But, the graph line (a simple graph!) plots the FALSE value (0) when I would like there to really be no value & hence no plotted point if the result is FALSE.

to return the name (drange) of a person who was visited by "SH" (qrange), more than 30 days ago (trange).

There are faults in my formula, and if I'm honest I don't entirely understand it !

I need to return all of the names of people who were visited by "SH" more than 30 days ago. So I need the next value, and the next which is also over 30, by copying the formula down to the next cell and the next. My problem is that I get the first value (which is correct) and then the next ones are blank.

To make matters worse, the first value I get is only correct if i DON'T enter it as an array. If I do enter it as an array, I get the first row of the spreadsheet.

I have some data that I'm plotting on a bar chart and I'm trying to "HIDE" the columns with zero or null values. Basically, if the column is blank, I don't want a "gap" on the chart. I'm not getting this to work.

I am using Excel 2003. I have attached a data file here. getting the values in Q3, R3 and S3.

Scenario:

Q1 has the number = 1. So I want the cell Q3 to return 2/11/2013 as that is the cell corresponding to the Item1 (value specified in P3) with the value 1(value specified in Q1) in the cell. Basically, I need the date corresponding to cell which has the value of Q1 for the value of P3.

Similarly, R2 must have the value 2/12/2013 and S3 must have the value 2/14/2013 returned.

I'm using Windows XP with MS Excel 2003. I have a pivot table representing a survey. Let's say I've built the survey outside of excel and I've imported the response data into Excel. One of the questions in the survey is "ratings" and the possible valid responses for it is: "Excellent", "Good", or "Poor". In my data set in excel let's say I have 10 responses or rows and all the responses for the question on ratings are either "Excellent" or "Good". (There are no rows with a "Poor" value in the ratings column).

For example, let's say out of the 10 responses, 6 are "Excellent" and 4 are "Good". As such my Pivot chart shows two bars: one for the number of respones with "Excellent" (10) and another bar for the number of responses with "Good" (4). My delima is how to show a third bar showing "Poor" with a zero as the number of responses.
