# Finding Maximum Value (but Exclude Blank Cells)

Mar 21, 2014

I am writing a formula for finding a maximum out of three average values. The cells that will be populated with data are A1 to A5; B1 to B5; C1 to C5. The final cell where I want to write the formula needs to show the maximum of the three averages (average of data in each row).

The difficulty is that sometimes only the A and B rows are populated (and sometime only A row is populated) and if B and/or C are blank, the formula fails and shows "#DIV/0!".

How can I write so that if C is blank, then evaluate only A and B data. And If both B and C are blank, then just display the average of row A.

## VBA Code To Exclude Cells That Are Blank

Jun 20, 2014

I currently have a code that for combines cells within a range together and places them into another cell.

I want the code to only include cell that have a value in and exclude those within the range that are blank.

I have included the code below:

## Average Of Last 5 Values But To Exclude Any Blank Cells

Jul 3, 2014

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)

## AVERAGE Calculation To Exclude Blank Cells

Sep 3, 2009

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?

## Get Autofilter To Exclude Blank Cells That Contain Formulas

Feb 3, 2012

I have the following line in a macro:

Range("b22:L" & Range("J" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row).AutoFilter

This selects rows based on whether they contain data and creates an autofilter of the range.

The data Im using this on will have blank cells as the bottom rows but they will contain formulas that blank the cells based on ISNA() conditions,

How do I get the above code to only select cells with visible data and ignore those that are blank but contain formulas.

## Exclude Blank Cells While Plotting A Graph

Aug 29, 2013

How can i exclude Blank or cells that have a 0 when plotting my graph? Right now everything is very small because i have about 50 cells, some with quantities and some with zero quantities.

## Finding The Maximum Occurrence Of Text Over Non-consecutive Cells

Jun 15, 2009

I’m trying to figure out how to show the highest occurrence of text in 10 cells which are not next to each other. Some of the cells will also be blank And the other thing is if there is a draw e.g. 5 2Z and 5 1Z I'd like it to show that, either with a word e.g. "DRAW" or anything really other than just putting whichever of the 2 "notes" in it feels like

Attached is a spreadsheet (all other data deleted) that shows what I am wanting to do – I have typed the results I am after directly in to the cells in columns BE & BF – BE will need some kind of countif, but when I try that is says I have too many arguments! I have to leave the columns in between blank in this case as they have other info in them, which is really annoying as if those 10 cells were contiguous then the formula

## Advanced Filter: Exclude Blank/Empty Cells Criteria

Sep 11, 2006

Im using an advanced filter that uses the following criteria
Days Late Note(s) Note(s)
>90 <>*agreement* <>*QTR*

This shows all data over 90 that do not incl the words agreement or QTR in a column marked Note(s).

My problem is that I do not want to show records that are Null in the Note(s) column.

Note(s)
<> Does not work (possibly because it is text and not Numbers)

as this does work if used on records that contain numbers.

## Macro For Finding Blank Cells?

Feb 12, 2014

provide me a macro to give a particular message or Cell Name when the cell is blank. I have to check around Eight columns and the starting row is A10. Moreover the sheet can have different numbers of row at different time like some time only 50 persons data will be there and some times 60 or 85 like this but the maximum will be 300. So if the 50 persons data is there than it should not warn about row 51 onwards.

## Finding Items In List With Blank Cells?

Dec 5, 2011

I have a list of about 100 cells that's going to have user-inputed data for varying cells that could repeat. For example:

AAA
(blank)
BBB
(blank)
(blank)
AAA
(blank)
CCC
etc.

I need a formula(s) for a second list that can find the non-blank cells and put them in order (not necessarily alphabetical).

## Finding Blank Cells In Any Row Across A Range Of Cols

Jan 9, 2007

My excel file was imported from a 3rd party and has many blank rows across the entire sheet.
I want to delete these rows if every cell across is blank.
How is this accomplished?

I tried the formula "=isblank(C2:C18)" however I get a "False response on those rows that are completly blank.

## Finding Items In A List With Blank Cells Separated By Date

Dec 15, 2011

This might be pretty tricky. I'm trying to create formulae that can find non-empty cells in a list, and separate by date.

Example:

The following are given:

DateItem
1/23AAA
1/24
1/25BBB
1/26
1/27
1/28

[Code]....

I would like:

List 1 (Jan) List 2(Feb)
AAA BBB
BBB CCC

The original equation was for finding non-blank items without separating by date was given to me below Hopefully it's much easier with it: [URL]...

## Finding Equivalent Of Maximum Value In Another Sheet

Jan 26, 2010

I have to sets of data, each in a sheet with the first column as identical for both sheets. Sheet2 contains two series of 6 rows, each for a specific first column (""B Code").

Now I want to find the values of "TCT-C" column in sheet1 (for each range of 6 rows that the "B Code" is match) which corresponds to the row number that "TCT" in sheet2 is maximum (again for 6 rows). The point is, I need to shift to another series of 6 rows in sheet2 once the "B Code" does not match.

## Finding Maximum Value While Excluding Some Values

Feb 2, 2006

I have a row of data with the cells I want to find a MAX for are separated from each other:

a1=300 d1=500 g1=800 j1=10,000

I want to find the MAX value for a1,d1,g1,j1, but exclude any value over 1000. So instead of =MAX(a1,d1,g1,j1) returning 10,000, =???(???) will return the next highest max of 800.

## Finding The Cell Address Of Maximum Value

Feb 12, 2007

I have a range of overtime data. I want to list the maximum occurrence of first 10 overtime data ( Like 3200,2950.2300....etc) Thereafter from the results obtained I need to know the cell address of the employee corresponding to the results obtained, i.e XYZ, ABC.....

A B
Employee Name OT Amount
1. XYZ 3200.00
23. ABC 2950.00
35. WER 2300.00

## Finding The Minimum Value In A Column That Comes After The Maximum Value

Dec 11, 2008

Say I have 2 columns that in basic form look like this:

Column A Column B
Jan 1
Feb 0
Mar 7
Apr 4
May 15
Jun 2
Jul 5
Aug 4

First I want to look up the max value in this column. This is easy =max(b1:b8)
Then I want to know the minimum value that occurs after the maximum value. Thus the answer would be 2.

## Finding The Maximum Value Of All Those Meeting A Certain Criteria

May 7, 2005

Problem:
Range A2:C10 contains the login and logout times of various ID's.
Each ID could log in and out a number of times a day.
How could we find the first time a specific ID logged in and the last time that same ID logged out?

Solution:
For each of the ID's in range A2:A10, enter two Array Formulas.
To find the first login time (Column B) enter the following formula:
{=1/MAX((A14=\$A\$2:\$A\$10)*(\$B\$2:\$B\$10
To find the last logout time (Column C) enter the following formula:
{=MAX((\$A\$2:\$A\$10=A14)*(\$C\$2:\$C\$10))}

## Finding Maximum In A Variable Range?

Aug 6, 2013

I am now working on an excel spreadsheet which will automatically update every day so that one row will be added on the top of the sheet everyday.i.e.

A1 Date Price
A3 16/1/2013 5.5
A4 15/1/2013 5.6
A5 14/1/2013 5.45
... ...

Assuming that I am looking for maximum value of the column "Price", since max() cannot be applied to variable range, is there other method I could useto look for the most updated maximum value of column "price"?

## Finding Maximum Number For A Range

Jul 6, 2009

selecting a range under a condition. I'd like to write a macro to find the maximum value for a certain ID. The number of ID rows (left column) is unknown so can't say range("A1:A5"). Then have the ID and max number shifted to another column. Maybe use 'rows.count' ?

Eg.

4009 5
4009 9
4009 8
4009 4
4005 7
4005 3
4005 9
3008 10
3008 11

## Limiting Filters To Exclude Blank Columns

May 24, 2013

I have a spreadsheet with data in every other column (i.e. A, C, E, etc.). I am using the "filter" option in Excel on the aforementioned range of cells although the little filter icon shows up on all columsn, including the blank columns in between my data. Is there a way to only have the filters show up on the columns with data?

## Exclude Blank Date Fields For Vaildation

May 2, 2006

I am using the standard validation from the tool bar. What I am trying to do is in
check the date in a cell and if the new date is Greater and or equal to another date in another cell. The problem is I am having is when the cell that I am checking for a date is Blank the validation does not work and one can put in a date. I tried unchecking the "Ingore Blank"

## Finding The Maximum Value In A Column Based On A Condition

Nov 7, 2008

This should be simple to do but I can't figure it out. I have a database that lists operating room numbers in one column and the length of the surgeries performed in those rooms in another column.

I need a formula that will give me the longest OR time for a given room. For example the room numbers are in column A and the OR times are in Column B. I've tried something like

## Finding The Maximum Number Before A List Turns Negative

May 21, 2009

i have the volume of a reservoir in column A for lets say, 2 years, with monthly data (so 24 numbers in my list)

I also have some variables that feed into this list such as rainfall (fixed), and population (i.e water use, which i can manually change)

if i increase the population too much, the volume of the reservoir will at certain times of the year, fall into negative digits.

what i'm looking for, is a cell which works out the maximum value (in whole numbers) for my population, without any of the numbers in the reservoir volume list falling below zero.

## Excel 2010 :: Finding Data With Tied Maximum Scores

Nov 14, 2012

i have product group,product name and the statistics. I'll use an example of students with score. I have these set of data:

A B C D
1 Student Name Score Sum
2 Student1 Anna 48 80=Sumif(A:A,A2,C:C)
3 Student1 Anna 32 80
4 Student2 Tom 30 80
5 Student2 Tom 30 80
6 Student2 Tom 20 80
7 Student3 June 55 60
8 Student3 June 1 60
9 Student3 June 4 60

Now we have 2 students with tied highest scores with 80 Scores. Naturally i want the rank to be as follow: Top1 Anna since she has the highest score "48", and Top2 Tom, and Top3 June.

The problem is, the score data can vary and Top3 can probably have the highest score and he still didnt make the highest score collectively. And there will also going to be other situations as well because im working on a very large data set, and not these 3 students.

the max score is tied, and since im making another column with sum scores, the data is going to be redundant, and hopefully theres a formula to ignore this.

## Return Maximum Date Or Blank

Dec 9, 2009

I am currently using an array to return the MAX date value. This formula will enter 1/0/00 if the referenced cells are blank. I'd like the furmula to LEAVE THE CELL BLANK if the referenced cells are blank. {=MAX(IF(Bid_Circuits=\$A45,Bid_Trim_Completed,""))}

## Exclude Empty Cells

May 3, 2009

I have this calculation which works fine if all cells have a value. But it will happen that cells in the range are empty.

=SUMPRODUCT(--(1*LEFT('Courses input'!C4:D6,1)-C3<=0), --(1*MID('Courses input'!C4:D6,3,1)>=2))/E3

What can i do to exclude empty cells in the range from calculation?
