# Find Actual Median Of Data?

Mar 29, 2007
I am working on a spreadsheet for my farm. I have two sets of data I am working with. A very basic example is below:

What I am trying to do is find the actual median stud fee (i.e. if you had another column with $5000 listed 22 times, $6500 listed 34 times, etc. then you could find the median from there).

Seems like an easy thing, but I'm not sure if an array formula is what I need to use or something simpler. I don't have a lot of data right now (only a page) but will have much more soon.

We are trying to find the median of a large set of numbers to calculate the median income in 2010. For an example we have 8,379k people with $2500 average income, 9,783k with $7500 average income and so on. How can I calculate the median average income of such a large amount of entries?

I constantly use the following to determine the last row in a worksheet for loop control purposes.

[Code] ......

In my current problem i have a worksheet that has been formatted such that the code above returns a value of ,say 150 where as the actual data stops at say row 34.

If I "watch" the value in Col A I see A34 = "1513(a)" which is valid data and A35 = ""

I can easily cycle through the worksheet and calculate the last used row myself but I am always looking for ways to let "VBA do the heavy lifting" when I can

I have two columns of data, one is the price per unit, the other is the quantity sold at that price. I'm trying to find the median selling price, but MEDIAN doesn't work correctly and I'm not sure how to tell the function to count each price the actual number of times it was sold.

I actually believe I've found a work-around for this problem - I sort by price and use a SUM function to figure out where the middle is...I just feel like there should be an easier way (for the future).

Picture 2 rows and 4 columns.

The top row is just 0, 1, 2, 3

The bottom row is something like: 850, 790, 200, 250

Here's the problem: I want to find the midpoint of the data set in row 2, based on the values in row 1. So, the sum of the data in row 2 in this example is 2090, meaning the midpoint is 1045.

If we were traversing along the top row as a line, we'd find that midpoint somewhere in the 0.3 range... but how do we get that value?

with the following formula.

I need to find the median of Column C and Column H and then divide the median sum of Column C by the median sum of Column H. My data contains blanks so I obviously need to count cells with data only. I am trying to avoid hard coding any cells and am looking for a single formula.

So what I have is a large list of items, and each item has the price of the product, and a product type.

What I want to do is find the median price for each specific product type, using a formula, without having to sort or filter my large list of products.

I have another challenging solve for a VBA macro. So here it goes, as I have become frustrated trying to make an array formula with no joy. On my sample worksheet provided below this is what I am trying to accomplish:

(Solution cells) B4:I4 looks to the (Combination cells) M5:R10 for a match

If a match is present then cell J4 gives a "win" ,

If no match then cell J4 gives a " lose ".

Next if a win is present in cell J4, then cell K4 looks for when the draw number that matches occurred on from cells A4:A10, then subtracts the two(e.g. solutions cells from combination cells) to give the actual " # of draws to a win ". If no win is present in cell J4, then the default is zero for cell K4

The formula would be copied down thru cells J4:K12

Please refer to sample worksheet attached so that you can understand more clearly of just what I'm trying to do.

I've read several threads about using Median(If, and I have success with one criteria, but not with three. Here's the setup:

I have a log of phone calls, and I want to find the median call length for calls in a certain month or set of months (i.e. a quarter, three months). In Calls!B I have the date of the call, in Calls!C I have the call length in minutes (i.e. "34"), and in Calls!A I'm using Concatenate and Text to return month/year (i.e. "Aug06").

With one criteria, it calculates the median correctly. With three, it only returns #NUM. Yes, I hold control+shift and hit enter. Here's my formula:

=MEDIAN(IF(Calls!$A$2:$A$500=Scores!B8,IF(Calls!$A$2:$A$500=Scores!C8,IF(Calls!$A$2:$A$500=Scores!D8,Calls!$C$2:$C$500)))))

Where Scores!B8,C8,D8 hold "Oct06" "Nov06" and "Dec06" respectively. What am I doing wrong? Is there another approach I should use instead?

Median Indirect: I would like to find the median in a range of cells and then bring back the 2 adjacent cells

Range...............Adj Cell 1............Adj Cell 2

1.......................L1......................L2

2.......................P3......................P4

3.......................O9......................010

So the median of the range is 2, thus we would want the formulas to bring back P3 and p4

Column 1..............Column 2

P3...........................P4

I have 10 worksheets. I would like to create a macro to find all the "2" values on worksheet 1, and have the actual range that the cell is, compiled into a list -example: I would like the list to be similar to this= (A1,B15 ,C8)

I even tried to record it but it doesnt show me the actual range that the data is found in.

Attached is a spreadsheet showing various stockcodes in various districts with their prices. My aim is to find the median stock price of each stockcode which might show me the district which has a huge variance in price with the same stock. Average can be used on a subtotal, but median is not there. The spreadsheet is an example and the real list is thousands of rows, so I can't manually go and change the range for each stockcode encountered to find the median for each stockcode.

Any suggestions, I am using excel 2003 and can't download add-ins due to my work's network security, though I could do it at home if someone found a good add-in etc.

See xls file. I have this chart and the data labels are percentages instead of the actual value. How did these get that way? Under Chart Options there is a autotext box that is there but if I uncheck it, the data labels go back to the actual dollar value and that autotext box goes away.

I am totally baffeled by this despite serach the help, the internet and this forum. I am sure it is something easy I am missing.

Can some one provide some color on this?

I cut this from a larger book with many tabs because I am not able to send out the entire thing (proprietary).

I am trying to find the median of a set of numbers on a column that correspond to dates on the left column. I want a monthly median average of the numbers on the right which correspond to the dates on the left. So for example. I want to make an equation that gives me the median of all the numbers on the right if they fall within the range of a certain month(in this case October). I've tried These:

I have an interesting problem (I hope you find it interesting too). I'm trying to find the historical "high" day of the week for a particular stock I follow. I searched for several hours but was honestly unable to make any progress. Normally I do my own formulas, so other than pasting a rare macro, that's pretty much the extent of my (lack of) experience, ie please assume I am a novice....

Trying to create a basic pivot table from a CSV file for our users. What I've done in the past is open my CSV and then take the option Insert > Pivot Table to create the pivot table from the open CSV/worksheet. My question here is .... how can I save this .XLS and refresh the CSV data within? Or do I need to use an external data source? I don't want to have to use any drivers. I'd love to be able to just point to a CSV or TXT file on our server and that be that.

For something else I have used Web Query strings to point to .php scripts that send back data in XML format. Is this an option?

Again, the goal is for me to create a pivot table and just have our user's open it up and have current/refreshed data within. We can run jobs overnight or on-demand that update the data source.

It's probably best if you open up the attached example spreadsheet that contains sheets "Before" and "After" otherwise it might be pretty difficult to understand what I'm talking about.

So I have this spreadsheet where I have part numbers in column B, status of the orders in Column I and lead times in Column M. What I want to achieve is to get of Mode (col N), Median (col O) and Average (Col P) values of each part number and each of its status using the lead times in Column M. If possible I would only like this on the top lines of each of these. I have done the formulas manually on sheet After so if you click on the formula you can see the range's it covers.

I did create a concatenation in column K (conc of column B and I) as helper column because in theory this might make things a little bit easier.

Now going into second part. I would also like to do something very similar but only using the part number and status "Finished" and get the values in columns T,U, and V on the top row of each part number. I made some blue boxes and arrows to kind of point out the idea.

The solution can be either formula based or macro, it really doesn't matter, however I will intent to use it within macro either way.

loop that can calculate the median of dynamic ranges. I need to run through all columns and for each column find the the ranges (there are more ranges and they are seperated with a blank row) with numerical data and then calculate the median and thereafter continue down to find the next range with numerical data in that row and so on.

I have a database of employees with 7 different variables [Year, JobFunction, PreviousIndustry, PreviousRegion, Degree, Experience, CollegeMajor] of which I would like to be able to select any number of and find their median/max/min/etc salary.

For example, I may need to know the median salary of all employees who started in Year 2006, who work in accounting, and have an MBA.

------------------------------------------------------------------

Rather than copy and paste my 7 variable AVERAGEIFS function, I'm just going to use a two variable example here to keep things simple.

I had no trouble doing what I need with this 2 variable AVERAGEIFS function like so;

{=AVERAGEIFS(Salary,File,$A$3,JobFunction,$A$6)}

...where Salary, File and JobFunction are the names of a cells in another worksheet and $A$3 is a drop down menu that I can select the File Year and $A$6 is a drop down menu where I can select the JobFuction.

Now I would also like to have the same kind of conditional "IFS" filtering with the MEDIAN function, but I have been unable to figure it out since Excel doesn't have a MEDIANIFS function. This is what I've tried so far;

{=MEDIAN(IF(AND(File=$A$3,JobFunction=$A$6),Salary))}

but this just returns "0" which obviously means I'm doing something wrong, can anyone help me out here?

Note: I was able to get it to work with just a single variable just fine like so;

{=MEDIAN(IF(File=$A$3,Salary))}

but trying to add the second [and eventually 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th] conditions is the problem.

I need to find a number (1, 2 or 3) and I am looking in two different cells for it. Now, Cell 1 might have the information; Cell 2 might have the information or BOTH Cells A AND B might have the information, or either cell (or both) might have different information. I can't do an IF/OR because I don't know which cell will have it, nor can I do an IF/AND for the same reason. I can't assume that they will both have the information -- so I can't just use a solution that includes a "divided by."

for example:

A

1 2

2 0

or maybe

A

1 3

2 3

or

A

1 4

2 1

If A1 or A2 is > 0, but <4, then that number

For example, if I run the url www.example.com/runningshoes, that url may redirect to www.example.com/shoes. I'd like to see what each url returns. Is there a formula/macro that I can use to see this? I'm not very experienced in using macros, but I'm willing to give it a shot if it'll work.

I have a spreadsheet with a large amount of conditional formatting and formulas within it. In order to make the file smaller and more manageable for management, I need to copy the sheet into a new book and then paste special values it.

However, upon doing this, the conditional formatting remains active and so my formats all change.

How can I copy the formats, but not the conditions?
