# IF Formula - Get Average Of Only Values In That Range Not Including Blanks

Nov 21, 2011

I am looking for a formula for the following:

If there is nothing is U6:W6 return blank

Otherwise sum the contents of Bf6:BH6 and divide by the number of cells that are not empty in the range U6:W6 (to get an average of only the values in that range not including blanks).

## Sum & Average Including Zeros But Not Blanks

Aug 14, 2007

Attached is an xls with my formulas and problem. We need a way to factor in zeros in grading student workers. However, we also need a way to omit blank or null cells if the workers did not do a particular project. The formulas currently in the sheet compute zeros for both scenarios, lowering the overall 'grade' for workers who didn't do a project compared with workers who did the project but got a '0'

## Get Average Of Last 6 Data Entries Not Including Blanks Or Zeroes

Jul 22, 2014

I am trying to get the average of the last 6 data entries not including blanks or zeroes.

Currently I have:

{=AVERAGE(INDEX(C2:CP2,LARGE(IF(C2:CP2<>"",COLUMN(C2:CP2)-COLUMN(C2)+1),6)):CP2)}

Which works fine when I've got 6 or more values in the row.

But if there are less that 6 values in the row it returns with #NUM!. Is there a way to add an IF ERROR THEN make = to AVERAGE of C2:CP2?

## AVERAGE Without Range Ignoring Blanks

Trying to determine the best way to do this. I understand that the standard AVERAGE function will ignore blanks if given a range; the function I'm using does a search for a particular value to determine if a value is to be included in the averaging: ...

## Formula For Getting Average Of Values Without Counting Zero Values In Range?

Dec 23, 2011

Is there a formula that would allow you to take the average of all values within a range but not count the zero values? I thought something like this might work but it's not. Neither one worked.

=AVERAGEIF(\$E\$4:\$E\$34,">0")
=AVERAGEIF(E4:E34,">0")

## Formula For Obtaining List Of Unique Values But Not Including Values Which Contain IC

Aug 14, 2014

1. Using a formula, I am trying to to obtain a list of unique values (string) (caveat: see #2) from the range E2:E10000 (arbitrarily chose 10000 - the row number is variable)(see #3).

I currently have a formula that seems to work for this purpose but I don't know how to add the condition in #2 (below)

2. To include all unique string values except those starting with the letters "IC"

3. Is there a way to make this formula so that it can only seek values up to the last row, and not go to the 10000th row if not necessary? The E column has no empty cells until after the last row that contains data.

Here is the formula I currently use which serves #1 (above):

[Code] .....

Any way to improve/simplfy this formula for the purpose describbed in #1? How can I add the condition in #2? Can you see a way to include #3? The most important issue here is #2.

Example of desired results:

Column A | Column B
AA | AA
DD | CC
AA | DD
CC |
DD |
DD |
IC |
IC |

## Formula: Average Value Of Cells Left Of Highest N Values In Above Column Range

Sep 24, 2006

I need a cell formula that will (a) identify the highest N values in an above specified column range, (b) color the interior of those N cells (I suspect that this is not possible), and most importantly (c) return the average value of N corresponding cells, where the corresponding cells are located on the same rows as the identified N high value cells but in a specified column to the left (not necessarily adjacent)

Does anybody know what this formula would look like?

Example:

-----------------------
...| A | B | C | D | E | F |
-------------------------
1 |....| * |.........| 7 |...
-------------------------
2 |....................| 2 |...
-------------------------
3 |....| * |.........| 6 |...
-------------------------
4 |....................| 1 |...
-------------------------
5 |....| * |.........| 5 |...
-------------------------
6 |....................| ? |...
-------------------------

? = average of B1,B3,B5 where (N = 3) and (specified column to the left = B)

## How Do I Get An Average Without Including The Zeros

Jan 27, 2006

I am using a formula to include all values greater than zero in my average which has worked fine until i tried to extend the parameters, then it gives me the Value? sign. Does anyone know another way to accomplish what i want?

here is what i am using now.
=average(if(BZ28:CM28<>0, BZ28:CM28, " "))

i was trying to make the CM extend to CS, but for some reason it is not working.

Anyway, i figure a different equation might be better than what i
have and solve my problem.

## VBA To Fill Blanks In A Range With A Formula

Mar 16, 2008

I am in need of a solution (probably VBA) that can fill a range of cells with a formula IF they are blank. Ideally that range is a named range I can define in Excel. If that is too hard, then a hard coded column I hand-edit the script for is tolerable. Also, ideally, this script auto-executes whenever data changes on the sheet.

You formula I will populate is:
=IF(ISNA((VLOOKUP(B33,\$A\$32:\$L\$43,12,FALSE))+1),"",(VLOOKUP(B33,\$A\$32:\$L\$43,12,FALSE))+1)
..but a simpler formula can be stubbed in.

NOte that it does have relative references, so the script needs to adhere to normal EXCEL conventions of enumerating cell references.

If the script points to a refernce cell that contains the formula that is uber.
Maybe it should do copy and paste instead of a string replacement in order to leverage EXCEL's referencing?

I'm stuck on this, and this would be VERY useful for many of my sheets to be able to point to a refernce cell containing a formula to fill in.

## Average Including Zero After Paste Link Transpose?

Feb 15, 2012

Average formula that will give an accurate answer. My issue is that I need an average of what has been entered rather than for the entire selection. I have paste link transposed the data as it needs to run on Excel 2003 which can only hold 30 items in the Average(number1, number 2 ... etc) and I need 52. My problem occurs when the data is paste linked all blank cells appear as a Zero therefore increasing the count of the average and providing a wrong answer.

Eg when (1, 2, 0, 3) Average = 1.5 is entered the formula works out (1, 2, 0, 3, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, etc) Average = 0.12 because it divides by 52 instead of 4. As you can see I can't ignore zeros as they are a possible input. What would be perfect is for the paste link to paste the blank cells instead of the providing a zero then the plan =Average(B3:B55) would be fine.

(Note: the new entered data is on the same row but different columns hence the reason for the paste link transpose to get all the data in one column)

## Average With Multiple Conditions, Including Dates

Aug 20, 2008

My spreadsheet is too large to attach so I'll describe it as best I can. I have names in column H, which are repeated irregularly. I have corresponding grade numbers (1-5) in column I, and I have the dates they were entered in column J. It looks something like this:

Column H Column I Column J
Name 1 4 8/10/08
Name 2 3.5 8/11/08
Name 1 5 8/11/08
Name 5 4 8/12/08
Etc....

I want to average the grades (column I) for a certain name (column H) within the last 30 days, or however many days I enter. I'm using Excel 2003 with the analysis add-in. I can use SUMIF to include any two columns, but how can I write an average grade formula using both the name and date conditions? Dan Auto Merged Post Until 24 Hrs Passes;Come to think of it, all I need to do is sum the data. I have a denominator in a different box that I can use to average it. So in effect, I'm trying to creat a SUMIFS function.

## Average & Count Zeros But Not Blanks

Apr 19, 2006

I am trying to make a excell spread sheet that will calculate my students averages for the year. I need to account for zeros in the coarse and I want this excel sheet to track the current average all year long . So I do not need to include my blanks in the average as I go. Also , how do I formulate my average accum to show this formula - Test scores, four of them count as 80% of the total grade. So each test is worth 20% / Lab 10% of total grade and homework is additional 10%. I downloaded the templete from MSN and have tweaked it to my liking except for the coding above. Please advise. I am a below par on Excel. My attachemtn is below of my templete. One note. the templete gave me the room to include 13 ros of homework - but I will not necessarily use all of them... I can make it one row for home work only ....

## Omit Blanks From Conditional Average

Oct 22, 2007

I have a formula to calculate an average value for a reference range:

= SUMIF(DATA!B32:B61,"<># div/0")/MAX(1,COUNTIF(DATA!B32:B61,))

Because these cells are references the blanks are being treated as zeros so I am getting an inaccurate average value.

Is there a way to make it so it will treat blanks as blanks? I need the zeros to be zeros.

## Average Omitting Blanks / Zeros

Feb 12, 2008

I have run into a problem with the array formula. After inserting formula with the CTRL+SHFT+Enter it is giving me the same sum to the 3 cells that I had array formulas in but trying to capture different data from what was in the capturing column. Example:

If row F consists of text types: Move-in, Mid Year, and Year End as potential options,and row G is the score for that text type(cells will consist percentages), give me the average of all the cells in row G that are specific to Move-In only, but don't include the blanks in the average.

My existing formula isn't designated to exclude the blanks. how to exclude blanks and how to get it to stop giving me the same result in the three separate cells. My current formula is as such: {=AVERAGE(IF(F2:F73=E76, H2:H73))}

## Conditional Moving Average Omitting Adjacent Blanks

May 4, 2008

how do I perform calculations on the last x non-blank instances in a data range?
for example, let's say I have a spreadsheet of 5 baseball players' batting averages (rows are team game number played, columns are at bats and hits for each player). I want to see how each player has performed in their last 10 games played, but some players have not played in every game. If I just use the sum function for the last 10 cells, I won't get the correct information for any player that has missed one or more of the last 10 games.

## Formula - Average Values That Match Criteria

Jan 3, 2008

The attached workbook has two tabs:
1. Burn Rate - this is where I need my formula to calculate
2. prorder - this is where the table will be

What I need:

1) from 'Burn Rate', get the 'PO ID' we will look up in the table.
2) go to 'prorder' - when the 'PO ID' there matches that same 'PO ID' from the other worksheet - take the value in column F - this is the number that will be averaged.

In other words - in 'Burn Rate', for a given 'PO ID' (column A), I want to average all of the values that are found in column F in 'prorder', and return that average to 'Burn Rate' (column B).
