# Formula To Return An Average

Mar 11, 2008
I am working on formula to return an average of data.

Currently it is matching a text criteria.

Thus if (the text in) column a = (the text in) column b, (return the average of) column c.

The formula that I am using is =IF(A:A,B:B,AVERAGE(P:P))

This is returning - #value!

Now is this a formatting problem in column P? Or is the formula I am using incorrect?

I know that the text criteria (col A & B) matches.

I'm trying to write a formula to return the AVERAGE by calendar quarter, IF

the quarter has ended.

For instance, IF Jan = 5, Feb = 20, Mar 5, Average would be 10.

But, if Mar was 0 (only meaning no activity) I still need it to calculate.

The formula I started with is -

=IF(A1=0,0,AVERAGE(A1:A3)

This works only if cells A1:A3 have a value greater than 0. How can I write

the formula so that as long as A3 is not blank that it will return the

AVERAGE?

I have a workbook with two sheets. The first has a list of job positions open, columns designated to stages in the employment process and in these columns, my staff enter the dates that they completed a particular stage.

"Position | Date Opened | Stage 1 | Stage 2 | Stage 3 | Stage 4"

Pos 1 | 01/01/2014 |02/01/14|03/01/14|07/01/14|09/01/14

This has a great number of entries and they are increasing and decreasing every day depening on the amount of jobs available.

On the second sheet, I am trying to set up a table which shows the average working days it is taking to complete each stage, divided into the months in which the job position was opened (i.e. for positions opened in january, the average completion working days for stage 1 was X amount of days etc...)

I have tried using =IF(AND(Logical, Logical),TRUE,FALSE) but this doesn't return any info as the logicals will always be false. I tried the OR function, but that requires only one of the criteria to be true to return a value. What I need is for the formula to return a number of days between two dates, ONLY if the opened date falls in one month.

E11 through E24 contains numbers and a few errors (#N/A) that need to persist (the errors need to show).

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'm using the formula =AVERAGE(B16:L16) to give me the average.

However I have a couple of problems with this. Firstly I would like to exclude the value zero from the average. Secondly to also ignore the lowest and highest values.

Example, if the values in the cells are 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 then the current result shows 5, by ignoring the 0 and lowest value 1 and highest value 10 the average should be 4.5.

I'm trying to create a formula that that returns an average value if two conditions are met. No luck here.

I need to be able to get to - Brand = Blue; Value = 2; X Count = average - from the following information. The average is 17.5

I tried a few searches for what I need but I think my wording might be off or there isn't anything on it yet. So the formula I'm looking for is: I have a single colum of say 700 rows with random values in each. I would like to average rows 1 to 15 then 2 to 16 then 3 to 17.... all the way through to 686 to 700. Now out of all that I need only the highest 15 period average value returned. Seemed simple until I tried to do it. Whats that saying, the idea is 1% of the invention..

I have one Row that houses numbers 80-90 in seperate cells (11 columns A20:

K20) - these are my Numeric Labels.

I then have several other Rows that span the same number of columns as the

Numeric Labels (A21:K100) and house Numeric Values that relate to the Numeric

Labels.

I would like to AVERAGE the Numeric Values in each Row and have a Numeric

Label (value) that corresponds to the calculated average returned as the

result.

Example: Sample Data

A20:K20 (Numeric Label) 80 81 82 83 84 85 86 87 88 89 90

A21:K21 (Numeric Value) 07 06 05 03 09 09 00 02 04 12 10

Based on the above data - the Expected Result is 81

Average = 6; Return Numeric Label = 81

The leading zeros shown in A21:K21 is for alignment purposes only.

I would appreciate two formulas:

1) Includes zeros to be averaged

2) Excludes zeros from being averaged

I have tried variations on this =INDEX($A$20:$KJ$20,MATCH(AVERAGE($A21:$K21),

$A21:$K21,0)) but receive the #N/A error message.

I'm building a yearly workbook with multiple worksheets (i.e. one for each month, quarterly reports and one final yearly report). My question is that although I can have the data transfer easily to my quarterly and year end report sheets, I can't seem to figure out how to filter my data and then calculate an average based on personnel averages in the various categories I have set up.

My example is that I want to be able filter my personnel shifts (i.e. 7am, 3pm, 11pm, etc) and then set up a formula which can for example calculate a column of data and average it only based on the employees working that particular shift. My formula should adjust for the shift time I pick.

The number of columns vary, but the number of rows is constant. Lets assume, max_col is the number of columns and max_row is the number of rows per report.

Then, I need the following logic as VB macro.

for row = 6

F6 = (G6*G4) + (H6*H4) + (I6*I4)+...+ ("max_col:6" * "max_col:4") / (G4+H4+I4... "max_col:4")

I have a large amount of data in 2 columns which I want to statistically average to see if a relationship exists between two variables.

Column A: Contains Iodine concentrations ranging between 0 and 22000 ppm.

Column B: Contains Nitrate (NO3) concentrations ranging between 0 and 22 %.

I have over 7500 rows of data. In theory there is an endless amount of data but it will all be kept in these two columns

What I want to do is create average values of NO3 based on set Iodine ranges.

e.g. I want to know the average NO3 grade for the cells where the Iodine concentration is between 0 and 99 ppm.

I want to be able to calculate this average based initially on 100ppm Iodine bins but dont know what clause I would need to add into the formula or if this is even possible.

I would also like to be able to edit the bin size to see if I can discern a better relationship between the two using different ranges. As such I can create the bins in a separate column but again I don't know the best way to do this to make it work well in a formula.

I am trying to average a data set where some rows at the moment are blank but will update at a later date, I am getting a div/0 error, the formula I am trying to use is

=IF(C23:C30="","",AVERAGE(C23:C30))

I thought this would look at the data and see if its blank leave it blank but if there are numbers there it would give me an average.

I am trying to do a stock ( goods) inventry for a catering industry, meaning most good swill keep havinf cost prices changing.

I am trying to use a LIFO system. To achieve the end result, i am trying an average formula and i am trying something as follows:

=SUMIF(I4:I20,">0",I4:I20)/COUNTIF(I4:I20,">0")

To try it out, i created a similar page with the same amounts but using a normal multiplication and division formula, the totals dont marry.

I am trying to do an average of quartely results (2008 results) and because certain quarters can have no data present then my quarter shows 0%. But if i do a simple average of all Qs then the 0% affects my overall year to date. I need to keep the 0% because it may be a legit value. So i've devised a way to is if we actually have something in the cell (using isblank). So i test with isblank and if something is present then i use the Quartely value. It could be 50% or it can be 0%.

I would like to incorporate the snapshot but i can't because i do not have access to uploading a picture. If any of you wish i could email the pictures. When i test out my formula in different cells its works but when i combine them all together i get #VALUE! error.

In the example the error comes from the Q3 which test out and should give "" but when its added to the formula i gert #VALUE!. Shouldn't the average function disregard "" cells?

My formula is:

=average((if(and(isblank(F33),isblank(J33),isblank(N33))," ",R33)),(if(and(isblank(T33),isblank(X33),isblank(AB33)),"",AF33)),(if(and(isblank(AH33),isblank(AL33),isblank(AP33)),"",AT33)),(if(and(isblank(AV33),isblank(AZ33),isblank(BD33)),"",BH33)))

Maybe my logic is flawed or there is a better way to do it. Either way i would like your opinion on it.

Looking for an average formula.

All found formulas average within a string (ex. A1:F1).

My spreadsheet contains a series of three columns.

Example:

Column A reflects a number stat for a month (January).

Column B reflects another number stat for the same month (January)

Column C reflects the difference between Columns A & B.

Column D reflects a number stat for the next month (February)

Column E reflects another number stat for the same month (February)

Column F reflects the difference between Columns D & E.

and so on.

I would like to average the rows stats reflected in Column A, D, G, J, and so on.

Also, I would like to average the rows stats reflected in Column B, E, H, K, and so on.

Also, I would like to average the rows stats reflected in Column C, F, I, L, and so on.

There are (i think) 5 t-ball coaches

25 5 yrs old

44 6 yrs old

each were score on RUN, THROW, GROUND BALL, FLY BALL, BATTING,

scores were: 5-Excellent, 4-Very Good, 3-Good, 2-Average, 1-Fair

So I was thinking of making 5 sheets (one for each coach, with their scoring for each players)

The last sheet will be what the Average would be for each area from each coach, giving me a general idea about the players that I didn't get to watch and score.

So how would I formula the Avarage sheet?

Again I'm on short notice, and need to have this done on Sunday, when the information starts to come in and I can data-entry the scores, and have it ready for Monday nights draft.

I have a database of information for which I need to be able to calculate the average of the top 20% for each column for all those rows that meet a certain criteria. In other words, I need a formula that's equivalent to the DAVERAGE function but I only want it to work on the top 20% of records that meet the criteria range that I've specified (as opposed to DAVERAGE which works on 100% of records that meet the criteria range). The database continues to grow so I'm unable to predetermine what quantity makes up this top 20%. I've attached a small sample file to show you what I'm talking about.

Trying to average multiple cells that are not consecutive and contain zeros that i want to disregard. I have tried to do an array formula but the cells must be consecutive so I am at a loss. This is what i tried. =AVERAGE(IF(A2,A8,A12<>0,A2,A8,A12,))

HTML Code:Β

=100*($I2/AVERAGE(IF($B2=$B$2:$B$38129,$I$2:$I$38129)))

I have the above array formula which I wanted it to calculate the average of all products selling in each store, but it seems to be calculated each?

In column b I have the store number, column I is the sales, I want to average all the sales in column I for each store.

I have probably over complicated?

What I am trying to do is rank my employees based on certain metrics. They are weighted in three different catagories. Talk time is 40%, Quality 50%, Attendance is 10%. I can weight the Talk Time and Quality, as those are basically the higher the score the better the weight. Attendance is the opposite, the lower the number, the higher the weight. Meaning, if employee has 1 absence that would better than someone who is at 4 absences. Is there a way to do this. I am somewhat educated on VBA, I understand if,then,else statements and/or Select/Case statements, so if I needed to do it in VBA I can. I just need direction to get it going.

I am trying to create a formula that looks for the last populated cell, counts 12 cells back and returns an average for all of the cells in that range. I know I have done this before with some combination of INDEX and COUNT, but I can't seem to remember how I did it and my experimenting is not proving fruitful.

Attached is a simplified version of the layout I am working with

I'm trying to figure out a formula that will give me monthly average (per person) on the following report. The problem is that people start at different times and sometimes they don't produce in a given month after they have started. Basically I'm trying to get a monthly average from starting month to the last full month, in this case January.

I have been asked at work to get some averages of data from an excel sheet. I have attached a sample workbook of the data i will be using. On Sheet1 is the data that will be looked at and on sheet2 is a sample of the results i need to achieve. I can get the data on sheet2 easy if i knew that data was static but in my case the data is going to be dynamic, so i don't know how many records each person is going to have each time if that person shows up in the record set at all. This rules out on static ranges to gather averages.

So far what i came up with is i use a macro to copy all the "Names" column to sheet 2 and then filter that data so that each name is unique, sort like a "key" for looking up values. Now i need to get averages of "Total Hours" worked in sheet 1 and display it in sheet 2 for each "Name". I have a formula worked out and almost have it where i want it but cant seem to get the range of data i need to be looking at. I need to get the Average Of hours Worked Per Person Where "Wk End Date" is greater than 1/1/2008 and the "name" matches up with the name in sheet 2.

Im having a problem finding a formula that will count and take an average of multipul ifs.

On sheet 1 of the attached file is multipul queries raised for us to answer.

On sheet 2 is an empty table which i would like help formulating.

In the Submission Lag Time Column i would like a forumla that looks down Column L on Sheet 1 and gives me an average for the amount of days a query has been with us from each company (column B) per month (going off the dates in column D).

I the same formula will be used for the other 3 columns, put looking down a different column on sheet 1.

See Attached.

The YTD 10 column is fine that will change everytime you update each month. I was wondering if there was a formula I could use for the Rolling 12 month Column.

At the moment it is averging from Mar 09-Feb10 which is correct but when it comes to putting in data for Mar 10, the Rolling 12 month column will obviously not change.

Is there a way of moving the formula along one each time you input data into a new month. So when Mar 10 has been entered the rolling 12 month column will pick up Apr-09-Mar-10 then when Apr 10 has been entered the formula will change again to May-09-APr-10?
