# Formula To Average Numbers Leaving Out Blank Cells

May 26, 2009Here is the formula I am using however it interprets the blank cells as 0% and includes it in the average. To make it more difficult there will be some 0%'s.

I can't modify my formula to leave blank cells blank when dragging it down, Also, I've got two formulas that i need to combine. Please view the comments I've put in cells E4, F2,F3,H2 and I2 to understand clearly what am seeking. See the attached worksheet.

The length of columns and missingness is different in different worksheets. I will be grateful if any of you could suggest a VBA that could convert the numbers stored as text back to numbers. I have been looking for an answer for a while, but cant seem to find one that automatically looks at every worksheet and converts text into number.

if anybody can come up with a macro, so that I can just have the numbers and nothing else. I would like to exclude the following -~!@#$%^&*()_=+?/.";:|][{},^` within a cell.

Is it possible to show "0" zero in the total average column without inputing zeros in the blank cells in row B3:E3 & B4:E4? There are months we receive no boat & RV orders, so those months wll be zero most of the time. Instead of having #DIV/0! it show 0, without having to input zero in cells to compute the average.

Total Average

[Code] .......

I have been trying to import CSV files into Excel on my new computer. I previously had a windows 7 system with office 2007. I have now moved across to a windows 8 system with office 2013. The problem I am faced with is the CSV files which I imported without problems on my old system don't seem to work on the new one. The excel spreadsheet shows the numbers, but when I try and use any formula, the cell comes up with 0, as if there is nothing in the cell. When using my old system, it shows that it is a picture that needs to be converted to text, but I cannot find out how to sort this out in Windows 8. I have even tried various versions of office, 2007, and 2010 on the windows 8 system with the same problem. I have tried all the things I have found online, checking the regional settings and those type of things.

E10 needs to show the average of the numbers that are in E11 through E24, and just ignore the errors.

I have many columns like that - where the errors need to show and I need to show an average of the number/values that do appear, ignoring the errors.

I have a spreadsheet table which shows different things but in particular has a column of data ranging from numbers 1 to 23. I carry forward these numbers to display in a different table, so am simply linking from the second table into the first to bring that data forward (literally using formula =B1, in top cell, =B2 in second cell and so on). That's fine.

However I would like to be able to show a blank for any occurences of numbers 4, 14 and 24.

Is there a formula that I could use to firstly carry forward the data, but to then leave blank if the value is either 4, 14 or 24?

How can I have my macro run in its cell and still allow the cell to be blank? Say I have a number, 0.99, in the cell and I want to delete it and leave it blank. I can either push "Backspace" or the delete key and it still leaves zeros.

If I push the space bar it stops the macro (which I do not want to happen) and leaves the cell blank because I added a space.

How can i leave Cell D3 etc blank untill i have inserted the end date it will look tidier when i do my full spread sheet and also is there a calender on a toolbar i could put on my spread sheet for easy inputing of dates.

i have a sheet dealing with part numbers and a paramiter exported from a programme.

L=1000MM | L/R is an example.

now

i use replace to get rid of everything before the number but anything after the mm is totaly different most of the time.

is there a way that i can get rind of anything after, and including, the mm?

or by some chance a command that will just leave me with the number allone?

I am having a dilemma on getting the average for the first 3 non blank cells. This is how my data looks like :

excel average.jpg

I don't know any formula that will disregard the non blank cell and will get the average of the firs 3 non blank cells from the right.

Macro that will strip out all the numbers in 1 particular cell column and and leave the text.

View 9 Replies View RelatedI have a column of invoice numbers, formatted as text, some of which have first character "0" & last character "C" e.g. "012345C". I want to get rid of the "C" leaving e.g. "012345".

I have tried Find "C" / Replace " " with the undesirable result being that the leading "0" disappears too. Find "5C" replace "5" gives the same.

I would like to easily replace every character in column A with a blank, with the exception of - and a number. I am trying to get rid of all letters,:, / and other miscellaneous characters without having to delete them one character at a time.

In the original posting the following formula solves the problem (attached) TestData.xlsx

B1: =AVERAGE(INDEX(B3:B100,MATCH(TRUE,B3:B100<>0,0)):INDEX(B3:B100,MATCH(TRUE,B3:B100<>0,0)+4))

What I would like to return is the average of the 1st 5 values, but what if a number of cells after the first value were also blank

Can I take average in a row ignoring blank cells and zero values.

View 8 Replies View RelatedI 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)

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?

I have a column of data that contains various blank cells where no data was measured. In the adjacent column I want to take the moving average of the last 4 data points including the most recent entry. My problem is i do not know how to handle blank cells where there was no data. I need it to average the last four in the column where data acutally exists. I am ok with using helper cells if needed and I am not worried about the first four results at this time.

Example data

I've got a spreadsheet that I do every month with columns of numbers that I average. This sheet has to match about 10 others similar. The columns are divided by Weekdays, Saturdays, Sundays. But some months there are no entries for certain cells on Saturday or Sunday.

I thought that if I just used the Average function, it would dismiss and not count the blank cells. Alas, apparently not. I've highlighted in yellow the one column that I'm really having trouble with.

I am trying to get a rolling 8wk avg of a large group of data. I am trying to take the avg of 8 vlookups:

=AVERAGE(VLOOKUP($A$9,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP($A$9-7,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP($A$9-14,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP($A$9-21,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP($A$9-28,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP($A$9-35,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP($A$9-42,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP($A$9-49,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE))

However, in some cases, the cell to be looked-up may be blank. Using the formula above, the result of these vlookups is "0". I want to take the average of these vlookups excluding the blanks from the 'Raw Data' sheet.

I have a sequence of 40 columns of data, representing 10 weeks worth of events with 4 values per week

I need to average the first pair for each week, ignoring zeros and blanks, and also separately the 2nd pair of cells, across the whole 40 columns

I am trying to come up with a neater solution which takes into account the zeros, at the moment I have the following which does not, for row 34

=IF($AR34>0,ROUND(AVERAGE(D34:E34,H34:I34,L34:M34,P34:Q34,T34:U34,

I could use SUM, COUNT COUNTIF etc but its gonna get messy

Using EXCEL 2010

I need to get a formula to calculate the average of the best 3 scores out of 4, but there is some that do not have a value in a cell (so some are only out of 3 scores not 4) and if i simply drop the lowest value and sum the rest, it will incorrectly calculate the average.

View 9 Replies View RelatedI need to remove only numbers from excel cell - I have tried using the "constant" function but did not work. I have thousands of cells with a consistent 4 digit number like this:

1000 the rest is text

How can I remove only numbers but leave all text in the cell and then if I can trim the cell so there are not any spaces at the beginning afte removing the numbers.

I'm looking for a function that will display the average of a row of cells, while at the same time not displaying any error messages. It's easy to average cells without blank values, but to combine that with no errors is difficult for me. I saw many ways to do the average, one of which is:

= SUM(A1:E1)/COUNTIF(A1:E1,">0")

That function doesn't work for a row of blank cells (i.e., hidden rows), though. The result is an error message.

I also read about a way to ignore an error in a computation:

=IF(ISERROR(F1),"",F1)

The problem is when I combine those functions I get a blank cell no matter which function I put first, and without regards to cell values or not. The reason I want this to be error-free is that I have to average the "average column" at the bottom of the table, too (i.e., F100).

Imagine I have cells A1 to A5 with a sequence of "numbers" like this:

A1 = 50-55

A2 = 45-67

A3 = 56-90

A4 = 49-80

A5 = 51-55

The left hand side numbers represent a score a minus sign (-) to separate and the right hand side represent another score. I want a formula that I can add, subtract, divide, average, etc, etc these numbers.

If I want to add the left hand scores, for example, cells A1 to A3, sum would be 151 (50 + 45 + 56).
