## Average Out Range Of Cells Excluding Text Found In Other Cells

Jul 17, 2014

What I want to do is Average out a range of cells "F4:F343". That's the easy part =average(F4:F343). However I want to exclude any numbers for that average if data in coloumn "Q" = "FMC"

Would that look anything like:

=average(F4:F343)/countif(Q4:Q343, "<>FMC")

I'm also displaying it as minutes in a day so i added *24*60 to the end of the formula and formatted to Number/.00. I've entered the formula and it will calculate but when i enter FMC to the appropriate area the average wont change.

## Find Differences Of 0.06 & Fill Color Them

Jul 16, 2007

I have columns of black data that I manually go through and find regions that have cells with values that are 0.06 or more different.

I then turn these regions into blue colored regions.

Is there any way you can design a macro that goes through the spreadsheet and FILL COLOR YELLOWs a cell who is 0.06 or more less then the next cell down?

This would be so much easier on my eyes, since I usually have 80 columns and 1500 rows of data.

The blue coloring I still have to do manually because my human instinct is sometimes important there.

I would be using the FILL COLOR YELLOW cells as quick markers for my regions of interest.

## Compare Two Employee Records To Find Differences?

Oct 5, 2012

I have been given a task to compare a set of the current months employee records to last months employee records. The goal is to a) find employees who are still in our group but may have changed managers b) find employees who are no longer in our group and c) find employees that are new to our group. Once this information has been compared between the two workbooks, it needs to be exported to a new spreadsheet that needs additional columns added for formatting in order to import the new spreadsheet in a tracking tool.

For example, last months spreadsheet includes the tracking tool ID column and has a row for each employee. For an employee that is currently with the team they would need the tracking tool ID to be put in the newly generated spreadsheet. Additionally the current employee might have changed managers and that needs to be updated. A new column needs to be added to the new spreadsheet that shows that a current employee is "Active". For employees that are new to the team they won't have a tracking tool ID because they are new but would still need to be considered "Active". And for the employees that have left the group, they would also need the tracking tool ID from the old employee record but would need a column that would mark them "InActive" since they are no longer with the team. My last step is that I want to add a column called "Team" that would iterate through each employees managers and assign them to a specific team based on the manager that they have.

My general idea has been that I need to loop through all of the employee names or numbers from this months records for comparisons to the names of employees from last months records. Once a match has been found I need to copy the entire row from the current months to the new spreadsheet. That way I will get the latest info or "row" for a current employee and that would also handle finding if they have a new manager. Next I need to pull over the tracking ID from the last months records, create a new column called "Status" and make the employee "Active" and create a "Team" column showing the team.

For employees that are no longer on team, I need to copy the whole row from the latest employee records, pull over the tracking ID from the last months records, update the "Status" column and make the employee "InActive" and populate a "Team" cell showing the team. And lastly for the new employees, I need to copy over the row from this current months spreadsheet. They wont have a tracking ID (It will populated when the Excel file is imported in the tracking tool) and I need to update the Status column to "Active" and also provide their "Team". After the new spreadsheet is generated I am done. The file can be imported. And the next month I need to kick off this script again.

## Differences With Find Method In 2000 And 2002

Jun 15, 2007

I am using the following code which works in microsoft 2002, but not in 2000. When I run it in 2000 it says " Named argument not found." The debugger highlights the line Set C through delete.

Sub DeleteRows()
Dim c As Range

With Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("A1", Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp))
Do
Set c = . Find(What:=" ", After:=[A1], LookIn:=xlValues, _

## Excluding Certain Columns With Find And Replace

Mar 22, 2013

I am writing a macro that will find several different values in sheet1 and replace them with values from a table in sheet2. It currently does exactly that but I realized that there are instances when replacing hyphens isn't appropriate and will ruin the upload of my data. I need to replace it in the rest of the columns though. The headers will always be the same, such as "MST" , so I could use that as a conditional statement I just don't know how to go about it with the replace function.

Code:
Sub FindAndReplace()
Dim LastRow As Integer
Dim i As Integer 'Counter to loop through all the rows found in the table

'Finds the last row used in my replacement table and sets that as the searchable range

LastRow = Sheets("Sheet2").Cells.Find(What:="*", SearchOrder:=xlRows, SearchDirection:=xlPrevious,

[Code] ..........

## Excel 2003 :: How To Show Differences And Count Between 2 Columns Of Text

Aug 5, 2012

Have Excel 2003. I have

List of email addresses in column a
List of email addresses in column b

** I would like a formula that will take all the values in column A and compare it to the entire list of entries in column B.
Would like it to show in Column C any entries in Column A that ARE NOT in the entire column B.

*Would like it to repeat for entries that are in Column B, but not in Column A and show in D.

*Then would like a count of the differences for each column (that is pretty easy).

It needs to look at the entire list of entries in the column as these will be email addresses. We want to know what is missing from Column A that is not in Column B and what is missing from B that is not in A.

## Calculate Value Excluding Text

Feb 11, 2014

On the attached spreadh sheet I have production costs that I wish to calculate. There are certain courses that are a constant each month and they are input via a data validation list, however there will be courses that are run that are not on this list.

on the cell with 'Other' I want to total the costs for the courses that exclude the normal monthly courses.

Ive managed to use the formula below to exclude certain text but I cannot do it for multiple keywords, or maybe there is a simpler formula.

## Compare Cells In Different Workbooks & Highlight Differences

Dec 6, 2007

I am trying to find a way to compare the cells (example: D4:D12 to the same cell range in another workbook. If the value in D4 is less than D4 in workbook 2 highlight it red and if it is greater highlight it green. I also want a loop to go through the specified range. Of course, the scale of the worksheets is much greater.
Another issue I foresee, is that the workbook name that I am comparing to changes every week, so is there a way to handle this change easily?

## Excluding Text Inputs For Attendance List

Jul 29, 2014

I'm making an attendance list that calculates regular hour and overtime hours for days in a month on rows. Besides the number of hours, there's input for v and s, which stand for vacations and sick days. I'm using the "if" function to separate hour and overtime, and when I put v or s in a cell it messes up my totals. Is there a way to make it so that the cells with v or s don't affect my other columns?

## Calculating An Average But Excluding Boxes With Text

Sep 25, 2009

I'm trying to get excel to calculate the average time spent on appointments by officers in a small team. Each of them sees people each day, and as we're very busy I'm eager to get the time spent on each appointment down, by giving them a target of the number of people to see each day. At the moment we gather some stats on this, which show how many people are being seen by each officer.

The attached example sheet shows for one week a list of columns with officer's initials at the top, and says how many people were seen by each person each day during that week and then a how many people overall for the week.

I'd like to be able to generate statistics on the amount of time each officer has spent on average with customers, and base this on the fact that people have 360 minutes per day (they do 6 hours of appointments and another hour for admin) to see people.

I think the spreadsheet attached gives a good idea of the system and what I want to do.

## Highlight Differences Of Cells In Multi Column & Row Table

Mar 20, 2009

PART 1
- A record is created
- The record is modified once/several times
- Only the original record and the last modified record needs to be kept

PART 2
- The differences between the original and the last record need to be highlighted in the spreadsheet.
- This has to be repeated for a whole bunch of rows

Currently I am manually deleting the rows and eye-balling the changes. I'm using Excel 2002. I have ASAP Utitilities as well. Although macros are cool, I was hoping I could try with an Add-in or software.
