Finding The Average Across Multiple Sheets

Oct 18, 2005

I'm trying to find the average for a person with scores in column 4 on 3 separate sheets. The following function returns #VALUE.. Because the person may be in a different row on each sheet, I'm thinking I need to use the VLOOKUP function.... Also, as an aside, the person may have a zero on one sheet that would affect the average score...

=AVERAGE(VLOOKUP(A4,Week03:Week01!A$4:G$30,4,0))

Finding Average Of Multiple Ratings?

Jul 30, 2014

I have a number of rankings, all from different spreadsheets that I wish to combine and average out.

Thus far I have pulled all the relevant worksheets into 1 spreadsheet. The issue I'm having is that each worksheet contains slightly different names.

So as an example, Sheet1 may have 4 columns: Bob Hope | 4 | SE | PM |

Sheet 2 may have 2 columns: | Bob Hope, PM, SE | 8 |

Sheet 3 may have 3 columns: | Bob Hope, SE | PM | 9 |

What I need to do is have a master sheet which just pulls through the name and then the average of the scores, i.e.: | Bob Hope | 7 |

I have approximately 400 people that I need to do this with.

Finding Average With Multiple Criteria?

Feb 27, 2013

I have to find the average of a set of data with a lot of different criteria. I think an array formula would work wonderfully but I just cannot seem to get it.

My example: I have a large set of data that I must get multiple averages from that fall within differing sets of criteria. For my example we'll just say that I have to find the average of the number column that occurs on or after Jan-12 (January 2012) and is type "p1" or one that has no date and is type "p1" and to not average numbers that are equal to 0. So logically it would look like this: If date

Finding Multiple Values For Specific Individual Through Multiple Sheets

Jan 5, 2014

I am working with a nonprofit to set up their financial ledgers. There is one workbook with 12 sheets, one for each month. The goal is to be able to set up a formula that searches through all 12 sheets for every donation that a specific individual has made. For instance, let's say that John Smith gave x amount of money on 1/1/2000, y amount of money on 1/10/2000, and z amount of money on 2/2/2000. This data will appear on 2 different worksheets. I have the following formula, which allows me to look through one sheet at a time:

{=INDEX(Jan!$B:$B,SMALL(IF(Jan!$A:$A=Smith!$A$2,ROW(Jan!$A:$A)),ROW(1:1)))}

Where Column A in each sheet is individual name, and column B is amount donated. Sheet "Jan" is the data for the month of January, and sheet "Smith" is the culmination of John Smith's donations for the full year. Using this array function, I am able to retrieve all data for John Smith in the month of January, but I can't find a way to make one function that searches for all of John Smith's donations in each month. Is there a way to build an array function in VBA that would accomplish this?

Average Columns From Multiple Sheets

Oct 4, 2008

I have 10 sheets in my workbook that represent 10 employees. Column G, rows 5 through 739, represent the amount of time each employee spends doing a certain task for each day of the year. All these cells have zeros in them until a we come to that day and a time is entered for that day. The result in each cell is a certain amount of minutes spent on that task.

I can average each employees time individually on it's own sheet with this formula: {=AVERAGE(IF(G5:G739=0,"",G5:G739))}, but what I'm having a problem doing is averaging all 10 employees together on a separate sheet. I'm trying to figure out company wide how much time is spent on this particular task each day.

My depth of understanding here isn't too great, I'm learning as I go. I think I have to incorporate that formula while also selecting each sheet. I'm starting to get the BSOD in my head with this one.

Search Multiple Sheets Within Report And Then Find Average Of Result?

Jun 6, 2014

Average.xlsxHi

I have changed the attachment to use CSV's

I am trying to create a report that I can enter the codes I am looking for and the formula will search the sheets within the report and once the results are found then find the average of those results.

What I am trying to do is search the codes from Sheet 1 under Outlet and ESA(in Blue) in sheet A,B and C. The problem is the ESA code seen in column I of A,B,C is only used when column L is empty in A,B,C.

Once the relevant codes are found I then need to look for the KPI's seen in sheet 1 B4, B6 and B8, they can be found in A,B,C in column R. then the result comes from column S in A,B or C.

Once the result is found for each code I want to find the average of them, with the answer to populate in yellow in sheet 1

I want the formula to be able to handle more or less codes as well as adjust the formula so I can add more sheets(possible D,E,F,G etc)

Finding An Average With Sumproduct

Im using the following formula:

SUMPRODUCT(--(Issue="Yes"),--(Month=Aug),--(Building=$A$9))

To find the number of instances where there was an issue in a certain building during a certain month.

What I cant figure out is how to find the Average number of such instances for the past 3 months, the last 6 months & the trailing twelve months. If I change the formula to:

SUMPRODUCT(--(Issue="Yes"),--(Month>April),--(Building=$A$9))

I get the correct sum for the months of May, June, July & Aug but I need an average number of instances per month for the last three, last 6 and TTM but not to include the current month.

Finding An Average Couple Numbers

Jul 9, 2008

I am trying to get an average of a couple numbers, but I have to enter both numbers in one cell.

I have to enter the numbers in a cell as a range (ex. "1000-3000"). I need to convey it as a range in the spreadsheet I am doing, but in a separate cell I need the average of the extremes (1000 & 3000). Is there a formula or anything that would let me get the average of those two numbers(2000) directly from that one cell? If needed, I could make the cell "1000,3000" instead. I just don't want to make two separate cells, one saying 1000 and the other saying 3000.

Count No Of Unique Months For Finding Average

Mar 11, 2014

I am trying to calculate the average headcount for different categories (over a certain period of time, by product, by job type etc) and I want to do it using a formula instead of a pivot table.

I have this set of data with a detailed headcount for every month. And I can find out the total HC for different categories using sumif/sumifs but if want to find out the average for a certain period, I need to split that total to the number of months where I have a HC.

For example, if the HC per month would be:

May 2013 - 12
June 2013 - 10
July 2013 - none
August - 5

in a 4 months period I would have a total HC of 27 and the average would be 9 (27/3 - July shouldn't be counted). How can I get the average in a single formula?

Month
Type
L/H
Prod type
HC

Excel 2003 :: Average Of Values Across 5 Sheets With Two Criteria

Jun 12, 2014

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:

=SUM(SUMIF(Further_Action!E:E,"Investigation",Further_Action!T:T),
SUMIF(Court_Application!E:E,"Investigation",Court_Application!T:T),
SUMIF(No_Further_Action!E:E,"Investigation",No_Further_Action!T:T),
SUMIF(Closed!E:E,"Investigation",Closed!T:T))/SUM(COUNTIF(Further_Action!E:E,"Investigation"),
COUNTIF(Court_Application!E:E,"Investigation"),COUNTIF(No_Further_Action!E:E,"Investigation"),
COUNTIF(Closed!E:E,"Investigation"))

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.

The sheet is actually being added to the workbook, seemingly before the error. I resume the code, and a new sheet is placed in the workbook and it errors again. The Debugger stops and highlights on the code above.The sheet count number was 10895 at the error, just as an indicator of how many times the simulation has performed successfully. I am hoping this is something I can fix without having to start over...

Finding Multiple Values At Once?

In my sales sheet, there is data of customers like name, address, phone number etc.

In my sales report sheet, i got multiple numbers in a notepad file which are rejected sales.

So basically, i have to copy every number one by one, and then have to find it in my excel sheet with CTRL+F and then i change the color of that cell which is rejected.

I want magic by which i simply add all the rejected numbers in one column of my file, and then do Abra Cadabra by which all the numbers which are rejected get in red colour automatically in the column in which there are all the numbers (approved as well as rejected).

I need to replace these numbers with meaningful values and I have a reference table to tell me what these codes mean ie. 80099 = apple juice, 554441 = orange puree, Z5478 = pumpkin soup, B89877 = banana smoothie. The reference table is in a separate excel spreadsheet and is tabulated in two columns ie. Column A = "the code", Column B = "the value".

There are like 1000+ codes I need to find and replace which I know is going to kill me if I did it manually. How do I find and replace all the values?

Finding Trends In Multiple Rows

So that is 1 row, my problem is I have about 8 thousand of these, and what I'm looking for is trends in lapsed accounts (accounts with no spend, the "0's"). As you can see I have 6 zero's in a row, which means this customer was lapsed for 6 months.

I want to run something that will find the average of zero's in a row for all 8,000 rows. For example one customer has 6 zero's in a row the other one has 3 zero's in a row so the average would be 4.5. I only care about zero's in a row.

Finding Best Combination Of Multiple Fields?

Dec 14, 2012

The goal of this is to find the best combination of a captain (out of 5 possible choices), 5 crewmates (out of 25, no repeats), deck items (2 items, can be repeated, 20 total options), ram (1, out of 13), hull (1, 13 choices), and rudder (1, 7 choices)

Each choice in every category has 4 attributes - fighting, morale, seafaring, and speed. The ship parts also have a true/false field called "unlocked" - the false fields obviously can't be chosen.

A mission gives numbers saying what total attributes are needed for a 100% chance of success. If the mission has 2 attributes that are required (say seafaring and fighting, for instance) then it takes whichever chance of success is lowest and counts that as the mission success chance.

Example: A mission requires 2000 fighting and 2000 seafaring - I can reach 2000 fighting but 1500 seafaring, chance of success is 75%. It would be better for me to get a combination that gave me an 87% success rate in both fields.

How do I have excel go through every combination (and is that even plausable? I would imagine that being in the billions of combination choices) and highlight (turn a cell green or something) the combination that has the highest minimum chance of success in all fields?

Finding Minimum Value Using Multiple Criterias

Feb 28, 2008

I have managed to make a work queue and lots of other stuff for the model, but I can't get it to take orders in the way I want it. Each order has a order number (from 1 to 100) and the orders come in almost randomly e.g. 3, 5, 11, 2, 7, etc. What I want to do is to take the smallest available order that has not been processed in.

The available orders column and processed orders look something like this:

A B C D
Time, Available, Processed, Start processing
5 2 0 2
10 0 0 0
15 0 0 0
20 0 0 0
25 5 0 0
30 0 0 0
35 0 0 0
40 0 0 0
45 4 2 4
50 0 4 0
55 7 0 5
60 6 5 6

Zero means no new orders or no processed orders. Now the Start processing column should select the smallest not processed order if previous order has been processed.

A have, for now at least, all other problems solved, but can't figure out how to get start processing column check for the smallest not processed order line. I have tried combination of Min and Max functions with If, but it soon requires too many Ifs to make any sense out of it. I also tried the Dmin function, but it wasn't up to the task becouse the model requires ~1000 lines and as Dmin only takes criterias vertically I ran out of columns . So how could find minimum from row one until current row excluding values processed so far and only checking orders available so far?

Finding Duplicate Values In Multiple Columns

Jan 4, 2013

I am not sure if Excel is able to do this but basically I am looking to find out which rows have some duplicate values. I have just read this back and it doesn't make a great deal of sense so I have attached an example spreadsheet.

Basically I am looking to find if E1:G1 duplicates further on down the list, hope this makes a bit more sense with the example attached.

Finding First Instance Of Multiple Text Entries

Mar 14, 2014

I have a list of names that are mixed and in no order (and need to stay out of order, so not sorting allowed). I need to parse this list to give me the FIRST instance that each name shows up in the list. The one exception is that the first name, cell A1, will be auto-generated from a different workbook, and it is automatically named Name1.

So, in the example spreadsheet, Name1 (cell E2) must equal "Alice". The problem arises on Names2-4. Name2 (cell E3) should be David, Name3 (cell E3)=Jerry, and Name4 (cell E4)=Mark. I tried an array formula:

{=INDEX(A2:A13,MATCH(TRUE,A2:A13<>Name1),0)},

But it is yielding "Jerry" as Name2, when it needs to be Name3. And, of course, this doesn't work on Names3-4 at all. I don't think it matters, but just in case, A2:A13 will be data validation lists.

Finding A Number In Multiple Cells With Each Of Its Own Range

Nov 3, 2009

So this is something that I'm not sure is possible in Excel. I would like to use an "if,then" statement to see if a number is in multiple cells. I know this is usually very simple except there's a catch here. In each cell there's a number range using a "-". So in a single cell a range would be 301-305. I am open to having the range done a different way like 301,302...etc. I just decided this would be an easy way to look at it and was hoping to find a way to solve this problem with leaving in the dash. Whatever is practical is fine with me.

Using Example A in the attached file I want to use this statement, =IF(308 is in any of the ranges in A3:A6, TRUE, FALSE).

So, for me, the alternative I want to avoid is Example B where I would have to list every single number and then check the whole range. I would like to avoid this because these examples, as you can imagine, are on a much smaller scale then what I will actually be dealing with.
