# Excel 2010 :: Finding Average Value For Positive And Negative Set Of Numbers

Aug 25, 2014

Please find the attached MS Excel 2010 file <average set.xlsx>.

There is set of positive set & negative set of values available in the Column A. The values are plotted against Column A in Column B. Light green are positive sets and light yellow are negative sets.

Now I want to calculate the average for the positive set & negative set of values as shown in light majenta in the cells F4:F9. Also all majenta cells to be plotted by formula.

The Column H and Column I also same as like above , but here negative set of numbers starts first.

## Average Mix Of Positive & Negative Numbers Separately

Aug 6, 2009

I have a column which is populated with profits and losses from a trading account. Here is an example:

Column I
400
200
-100
-150
-50

What I want to do is average all the profits, and average all the losses so I have two numbers - the average winner and the average loser. Continuing with the example from the 5 trades above, the average winner is 300 and the average loser is -100. How can I do this in excel?

## Excel 2010 :: Rounding Negative (and Positive) Time Values?

Apr 24, 2013

EXCEL 2010. I have a column of negative and positive times (eg. -00:52, -03:07, 06:02) in custom hh:mm format, and would like a new column rounding these times to the nearest negative or positive hour (with just the whole hours displayed), so I need a formula that would give me (for this example) -1, -3, 6, etc.

## Excel 2010 :: Return Positive Or Negative Value Farthest From Zero Based On Criteria From Another Range

Mar 11, 2014

I am creating a template in Excel 2010 and am having some issues due to a combination of positive and negative values. Specifically, I have a named range of values that can have either a positive or negative deviation from zero. I need to return the value that has the greatest deviation from zero (either + or -) based on criteria in another named range I have used the following array formula with success for the "Y" range:
{=IF(PRB=M1,INDEX(Y,MATCH(MAX(ABS(Y)),ABS(Y),0)),MAX(Y))}

However, if there are not any negative values, as in the "Z" range, it only returns MAX(Z) for the entire range, when I would like ti to return "0.00134" (the largest deviation from zero based on the PRB range criterai. Would this be better accomplished using VBA?

PRB
Y
Z
A90B90
A90B-90

EX: -1 needs to be 1

## Positive And Negative Changes Any 2 Numbers

Feb 4, 2012

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

## Using Min And Max Formulas With Both Positive And Negative Numbers

Jul 3, 2012

I want to find the min and max numbers within a thread of numbers that has both positive and negative values. The key is that I want the smallest amount or the largest amount based on the number and not on the positive or negative.

For example, below is my list of numbers.

7
5
2
-5
-6
7
-8
-3

I want the min formula to return 2 and the max formula to return 8.

How can I sort like this.

## Subtract Positive And Negative Numbers

Sep 14, 2009

IF formula.

I am trying to subtract 2 numbers, and they are 4 different combinations of positive and negative numbers.

I wrote the formula as

## Sum Positive And Negative Numbers Regardless Of Sign

Jul 14, 2006

I have a colum of positive and negative numbers I want to sum all the numbers regardless of the sign. Example
-1500
8000
-2500
4000
=16000

I can not work in another colum or covert the negative numbers in another colum then add them up.

I need last cell to read 16000. What formula do I need?

## Convert Positive Numbers To Negative

Jan 8, 2008

I have created a Pivot table from a source data file that includes a document status column ('Type I Or C') (I for Invoice & C for Credit) and an Invoice / Credit value column (Invoiced Price). However the values for both invoices and credits are positive so when summed distort the total values.

I am attempting to create an additional column within the Pivot table to convert the credit note values to negative by inserting a calculated field under the formula tab, i.e.

=IF('Type I Or C'="C",-'Invoiced Price','Invoiced Price')

The above formula works fine in a standard worksheet but it is not reckonsing the "C" within the pivot table. If I manually change the value to numeric (i.e. 1 for Invoices and 2 for credits) it works fine, i.e =IF('Type I Or C'="2",-'Invoiced Price','Invoiced Price')

so it appears to be an alpha issue?

## Highlight Duplicates Positive And Negative Numbers

Feb 8, 2011

I have one debit and one credit column. I want to higlight duplicates, with positive and negative values.

Like this.

Column A
5000
1000
10000
3000

Column B
- 10000
-5000
-3000
-2000

I know how to do the conditional formating to find duplicates when there is only positive or negative numbers, but i don't know how to match both positive and negative numbers.

## Formula To Sum All Numbers With Same Sign (negative / Positive)

Jul 23, 2012

I am looking for a formula to do the following:

In Tab 1, I have a negative number and the word "Original" next to it. In Tab 2, I have a mix of positive & negative numbers. I want all numbers that are negative to display the word "original" and all positive to display" new." How do I do that? Also, I want the opposite to work as well-- if Tab 1 has a positive number, I want all positive numbers in Tab 2 to display "original."

## Formula To Pick Up Negative And Or Positive Numbers?

Jul 17, 2013

I have the following formula
=IF(VLOOKUP(F89,'2013 susp 2714035 Reissues'!F:F,1,FALSE)=F89,"yes",FALSE)

That is supposed to look at the tab 2714035 Reissues and find the same dollar amount. The issue Iam having is the dollar amount can be a negative or a positive amount but the formula is only picking up the number if it matches exactly negative to negative or positive to positive. formula to pick up the matching number if its a negative or a positive.

## Count Max Number Of Consecutive Positive / Negative Numbers

May 2, 2007

Let's say I have a column A with the following values.

30
40
30
60
-20
-10
-50
-60
-70
120
320
20
-40
-30
40

How can I have 2 cells display:-

i)highest streak of positive numbers = 4
ii)highest streak of negative numbers = 5?

Also, how can I have another 2 cells display:-

iii)the sum of the highest streak of positive numbers = 160
iv)the sum of the highest streak of negative numbers = -210

## Pass Or Fail Using Both Positive And Negative Numbers Against Tolerance

Aug 20, 2012

It's a worksheet for testing milk tanks. The issue is as follows:

Column F = Chart Error/This can be either a positive or negative whole number
Column G = Tolerance/This is always a whole positive number

Problem is I want Column H = Status to say "Pass" or "Fail" based on meeting the Column G number. But it's only the number itself (not whether it's Positive or Negative) that matters in determining the P/F status.

Examples:

Column F= -20
Column G= 15
Column H= Fails

or

F= 20
G= 15
H= Fails

The formulas I've been coming up with will show one or the other as Failing but not both + or - numbers if they fail to meet the G Column tolerance number.

## Make Positive Entered Numbers Appear As Negative For Budget

cac100
cac-100
ddd200
ddd300
fff-500

I want to be able to highlight data in column B where amount is identical (ignore negative sign) only where data in column A is identical.

In this particular case it should highlight 500,-500 where data in column A = ABC & also 100,-100 where data in column A =CAC.

## Data Validation - Negative And Positive Numbers Based On Another Cell?

Mar 15, 2012

I have created a template using data validations. I have a drop down in column O, which you can choose from Credit or Charge. In column V, I want:

## Remove Trailing Letter From Numbers & Convert To Positive / Negative

Feb 16, 2008

I use currency data pasted from legacy program that pastes dollar values followed by a C or D to represent debit and credits, ie -- 1,000,000.00C or 1,000,000.00D.

Is there some way to remove the letter and correctly format the value to a negative or positive number on a whole worksheet or column?

Currently I am doing this manually one cell at a time.

## Excel 2010 :: Finding Duplicate Numbers?

Jun 15, 2014

Using Office 2010.

I am trying to find duplicate numbers in sets but so far I can only highlight the ones that are in exact order. I need to find each set that has the same numbers, in any order. Example..

I will provide an example of sets of 3. But I get 3, 4 usually but sometimes 5 or 6.

I get them from different people.

Person A- 234, 569, 498, 849, 848,343,567,347 etc...

Person B- 432, 596, 677, 566, 565,433, 455 etc..

Now I need to find each set that has the same numbers, any order. Like 234 from A and 432 from B would be the same, so I would need to highlight them 2 sets. But I can not figure out how to do this. For Excel to highlight it they have to be 234 and 234. Does not recognize same numbers, different order.

## Excel 2010 :: Sum And Average Of Decimal Numbers

1) I have tried the autosum or auto Function =AVERAGE(A2:A7) but it yields #DIV/0! error
2) when I use =AVERAGEA(A2:A7), it yield ans=0
3) puttin =ROUND(AVERAGEA(H2:H23);3) also yields 0;

## Excel Vba To Copy Positive Number And Paste Negative On Cell Condition

Dec 4, 2013

I am using the following code to update an invoice summary sheet from an invoice sheet but when a Credit Note is issued I would like the Nettï¿½ value copied across to be a negative figure. When a credit note is issued the value of Service Invoice Cell L2 = 2 and an invoice L2 =1.
