Finding The Maximum Value In A Column Based On A Condition

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

Maximum Based On Condition
function that can find the maximum value in a range, where the range is defined by the rows containing a specific string, i.e:

In column A:
Alm Rød
Alm Grøn
Alm Blå
Special Rød
Special Grøn
Special Sort

In Column B I have values for each of the above string names.

Now I would like to find the maximum value for the range with names starting with "Alm".

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

Calculate The Average Of A Group Cells In One Column Based On The Condition Of Another Column
I'm trying to figure out if there is a formula I could use that will calculate the average of a group cells in one column based on the condition of another column. It's hard to explain, so I will show an example. All the data is on a one worksheet and I'm trying to show totals and averages on another worksheet. Location, Days

17, 4
17, 3
17, 5
26, 4
26, 8
26, 10
26, 7

On a different worksheet I would want to know what the average days are for each location. So is there a formula that I could use that will look at column A for a specified location number and then average all the days in column B for that location? I'm using Excel 2003 and have tried using the Average(if) but with no success.

SUM MAXIMUM Or Index/Max: Count Number Based On The Maximum Time??
I was hoping that my formula would give me the count number based on the Maximum time (latest time) and the Name field...My result is a 0 instead of 62 (the correct answer).

=SUM((Download!$H$2:$H$10=A4)*(Download!$D$2:$D$10=MAX(IF(Download!$H$2:$H$10=$A4,Download!$D$2:$D$1 0)))*Download!$I$2:$I$10)

Would a Index/Match/MAX function be more efficient?

Selecting Rows Based On A Column Condition
I have a worksheet which is created monthly by one of our company's employees which reports results for that months operations and successful audits. These audits are separated into various service lines and on the report which is submitted it takes on the following format:

1|Service Line|Data A|Data B|Etc.
2|___CR_______| Data | Data | Etc.
3|____________| Data | Data | Etc.
4|____________| Data | Data | Etc.
5|____________| Data | Data | Etc.
6|___DD_______| Data | Data | Etc.
7|____________| Data | Data | Etc.
8|___MS_______| Data | Data | Etc.
9|____________| Data | Data | Etc.

What I want to do is use a macro from another sheet that has the effect of: While ServiceLine = "CR" copy the row of that line and move it to my monthly summary workbook, sheet 1. Then when the Service line changes to DD have the macro copy that information to the monthly summary workbook sheet 2, and so on. The problem is, if I test the Service Line column each time it will be an empty string the majority of the time and I'm not sure how to combat that with my If, Do, For, and While statements. As I've thought about it there are two solutions that I can think of: someone knows of a way to test the row only if it has information in it, or if there is a way that I can copy the service line information down until the change in service line so I can test Service Line on each Row.

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.

Finding Duplicate Records With Condition
Wondering if there is a way, script-wise or formula-wise that will look through a table and find duplicates but not just any duplicates, it has to match a certain criteria.

For example, I have a column for UPC and Vendor#. I have my table sorted by vendor (all 159 of them in one table) I want to find out whether a UPC appears more than once for a vendor.

UPC --- Vendor
11254 135
11251 135
11251 135
11254 9345
11251 9345

Here, as you can see, UPC 11251 appeared more than once for vendor 135. Can this be done through conditional formatting ? or a script?

Cell Of Maximum Value In Another Column
I have a problem looking up the cell at which a maximum value in a curve is located. I have attached a workbook with an example of my problem (this is scaled down to limit the size of the attachment – my usual string of data is 5000 rows long). Column A is the time and all subsequent columns will contain force values (as shown in columns A and B) which create a similar sharp curve.

Ideally I need to be able to lookup the time point (column A) at which the maximum force value occurs for each curve or if this is not possible the row number in which the maximum force value occurs. I would like to be able to do this using a formula rather than a macro if that is possible?

I have tried using a number of excels lookup functions and read through the examples on the site but have had no success.

I have set up an array to calculate the mean, but I am having trouble working out a good way of gettting the others short of having a set of columns that manually define each cell...for instance =min(b3:b27) or =min(b28:b30).

19:00 51.00 0 47.5
19:00 52.00 1 48.3
19:00 51.00 0 47.3
19:10 36.00 0 45.3 (nb time has changed)


I need a routine that takes the following action;

When the value 1 occurs in col M row .. (it will only occur once in each time block) and N1 on the same row has the highest value [ 1 and 48.3 above] put 1 in column O on the same row else a 0.

If 1 occurs in column N (time block X) and the value in N is not the highest then store a 0.

This needs to be done for each time block.

It feels like this can probably done by an If or vlookup type of routine but I can't come up with one that works across blocks of times.

Identify/highlight Maximum Value Based On Multiple Criteria
I have a file with telemetry data for n individuals. For each individual I have data on a number of days, over the course of a couple of years. On any given day, I have from 1 to several "fixes" for an individual. Fixes range from 1 to 3, with 3 being the "best". Note that I do not necessarily have data for all individuals on a given day. What I want to do is extract the row with best fix for each individual, on each day for which I have data for that individual. If there is more than one best fix for an individual on a given day, then I want to choose the first best fix (temporally). Right now my data is set up with columns:

INDV DATE TIME FIX ....other attributes

INDV = unique code identifying the individual

The data is sorted by INDV, then by DATE, then by TIME.

I figured I could do this using nested IF statements, where "TRUE" would be added to a new column (e.g., HIGHFIX) in the row of the first highest fix on each day for each individual, but have not been successful in doing this. I've also tried conditional formatting. Again, no success here.

Return Values In Range Based Upon Relationship To Maximum Value
I am looking to select two values from a range based upon their relationship to the maximum value. In this specific case I am trying to calculate the Quality factor based upon the frequency response of a transducer. So I need to identify the Maximum impedance and its corresponding frequency. I also need to identify the 3db points either side of the maximum impedance.

The 3db points are found at 2/3rds of the maximum value of the impedance (Impedance Mag in attached spreadsheet). Calculating the first 3db point isn't overly difficult as I just calculate the value for the 3db point and use the MATCH function to find the closest Impedance value and then work out the corresponding frequency from that. I am stumped as to how to calculate the second 3db point (above the Max impedance value). I have attached a spreadsheet with frequency information in column A, the other columns are used to derive the values found in columns M (Impedance Mag) and N.

Finding The Sum For Values In One Column That Are Connect To A Value In The First Column
I have two columns. One column has UPCs - some of which are duplicates. The second column just has number values. I'm trying to add the sum of all of the numbers in column two which are attached to their respective UPC. For example,

COL A///// Col B

11111111111///// 10
11111111111///// 4

So, I need a third and fourth column to give me the total value for a single SKU(col A) of all the values in col B. In this example the Third column would contain the SKU, and the fourth column would contain the sum of all values in column B that are associated with the single SKU in column three. The third and fourth column would look like this:

COL C///// COL D
11111111111///// 24
00000000000///// 17

Finding Last Column
Using and array to go through a series of sheets and do stuff (Thanks Gerald and Von Pookie BTW). I have used code which finds the last row (varies from sheet to sheet), but not the last column (which also varies sheet to sheet).

Finding Last row
LastRow = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row

However this code doesn't seem to work for last column...sample...
LastCol = Range("A" & Columns.Count).End(xlLeft).Column

Is there a trick I'm not seeing? Does this only work using the 'Cell' function in VBA? If so, how would the line of code look? I'd really prefer finding the column letter as opposed to using the 'Cell' method if possible.

Finding Row Number Of A Cell Based On A Particular Value

After that is done, I need to go to a different spreadsheet, grab different values, and place them in a different column in the above referenced spreadsheet.
