# Omit Null Values Calculating Average

Oct 12, 2007
I want to omit null values from monthly averages I'm calculating for some in consistent data. Currently, the macro I wrote reads the empty cells and I believe is viewing them as zeros. When taking the monthly averages, in some cases on parameter 'X' might be sampled for a particular date at a location, but another parameter 'Y' isn't sampled for whatever reason on that particular date at the location. Therefore, there is no value in the cell for parameter 'Y' for that particular date (the value is null). When the macro runs, it sees the blank cell for the particular missing date, but I believe it still views that as a 0 value which it includes in the average, instead of overlooking that cell b/c it is an unknown. So, for example, it might thinks there are actually six actual sampling results instead of five, and calculates the average based on six being the total instead of five which seems to misrepresent the average. (e.g., it's currently viewing 2, 2, Null, 2, 2, 2 as n=6 instead of n=5)

If possible, I'd like to keep the structure of the code as below with only the minimal modifications to address this issue.

I do have Options-->Window Options-->Zero Values de-selected....

I created a pivot table in which sales amounts are represented and a derived table in which market share percentages are showed. Now i am looking for a formula that is able to calculate average market share values. Depending on which country i selected in the pivot table and which category, the number of active companies are changed. How can i formulate this formula to calculate average market share percentages in a certain period. check out my attached file to clarify the situation.

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.

What I have is a spreadsheet with a whole bunch of sporting data on it. see attachment for an idea of the layout, Stats.jpg

In these data each round a player is given a rating. What I want to do is calculate is the average rating for each player across the last 3 and 5 games they have played. When a player misses a game they get a rating of 0 for the round. I want 0 ratings to be ignored in the running averages. Additionally, games yet to be played have a 0 in the cell and should be ignored. To get overall averages ignoring 0's was simple I used the averageif function, but I couldn't figure out how to use that but only extract the last 3 non 0 values. I currently have data up to round 12, so if a player has played in 12, 11 and 10 then the 3 round average should just be the average of these 3, but if they missed for example round 11 then the 3 round average should return the average of 9, 10 and 12.

The data is set out in the following way.

In column B I have a list of player names from cells B3:B618.

Across row 1 from N1:AM1 are labels "round 1" "round 2" etc.

The ratings for each player in each round are in N-AM and from 3-618. i.e. N3:AM3 contains the weekly rating for player 1, 4 contains player 2 etc.

I would like the 3 round averages to be returned for each player in column L and 5 round averages in column M.

I have a list of houses for sale in various suburbs, divided into houses with various amounts of rooms.

I want to be able to find the average cost of each size house in each individual suburb.

i.e. City Centre, 3 Bedroom, 250000

City Centre, 2 Bedroom, 200000

City Centre, 1 Bedroom, 150000

What is the best way of doing this? Multiple worksheets?

Obviously the sample worksheet I have supplied is quite small, I will be working with much larger lists once.

I am using Excel 2003.

I have pulled various data points from a pivot table into a summary.

My pivot table is located on a tab entitled "Pivots - All".

My summary tab is entitled "Open Summary".

My chart tab is entitled "Open Charts".

The formula within the summary cell that is pulling from the pivot equals

=GETPIVOTDATA("Active Y/N",'Pivots - All'!$A$70,"Active Y/N","Yes","Leader","Eurich","Expected Tenure",4)

I have found ways to NOT display the zero values in the summary tab, but the column chart (which is set to use value as the data labels, continues to pull the zeroes in the chart.

Is there a way around this besides using the "clear all" within the summary? I refresh this data weekly and don't want to have to keep redirecting the cells in the summary to the pivot.

how much excel can do and the amount of experts that is willing to help out in this forum.

Is there anyway to combine all the values to omit redundant data?

For e.g.

A B

1 Apple 28

2 Pear 55

3 Orange 35

4 Pear 22

5 Pear 15

6 Orange 18

7 Apple 25

is there any VBA codings that could automatically reduced all the above data to

A B

1 Apple 53

2 Pear 92

3 Orange 53

I have a vba macro written in an excel worksheet (WS1) that reads another excel file (WS2) and retrieves data and writes it into the worksheet with the macro (WS1). It works beauifully except for one little problem. When I send it to a co-worker the numbers part of the data returns null values. I am connecting to (WS2) using ADO connection strings for the spreadsheet and recordset. The only difference I see is that in references of WS1, it shows Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 2.7 library, it shows 2.8 library on my machine. Also it shows recordset 2.8 library on my coworkers machine, as well as mine.

I'm building a form comprising some text boxes and drop down lists. I'd like for data (once input into the form by the user) to input, upon click of a submit button, into an excel spreadsheet, row by row.

Here's where i'm struggling: I need the form to validate data before submitting. Namley, the form must not allow null values to be submitted and will show a message box telling the user what is needed.

Below is what i've got so far. I've tried playing around with this but am struggling to implement the above functionality:

I have several worksheets with thousands rows (independent variables) and hundreds columns (all dependent variables). Each line basically gives me hundreds values for each independent variable - see below:

...

C9 39.65 653.95 5.28 163.56 99.56 14.49 ... ...

E9 7535.92 21500.56 2835.88 3122.98 7225.34 5371.25 ... ...

G9 111568 298021 12940 31645 181797 36996 ... ....

...

I need to know how the values in each row are distributed, and I ideally plot a 2D column graph of the distribution. Is there a way to do that and create/program a macro (with relative button on the workboook) that does it automatically once clicked?

Very often there are outlying values (bigger or smaller by a factor of 1000 or even more), mistakes, which I would like to identify and fix possibly

I have a spreadsheet that we are using as a Skills Matrix for the team. The area that the team member deals with is listed in Row 3. The scores for each person are recorded in Columns D to M. The process steps being scored against are in Rows 8 to 38, and are seperated by the area of responsibility.

I am trying to work out the average scores of each person depending on their area of responsibility. I can work out the totals easily enough using:

=IF(ISNUMBER(FIND("CM",D3)),SUM(D11,D12,D13,D14,D18,D19,D20,D23,D24,D25,D26,D27,D28,D29,D30),0)

+IF(ISNUMBER(FIND("V",D3)),SUM(D33,D34,D35,D38),0)

But if I use the same for the average scores is works fine until a person covers two duties:

=IF(ISNUMBER(FIND("CM",D3)),AVERAGE(D8:D10,D12:D17,D19:D22,D24:D30),0)

+IF(ISNUMBER(FIND("V",D3)),AVERAGE(D31:D32,D34:D37),0)

This is becuase it adds the 2 averages instead of working out the total average score. Is there an easy way around this?

i.e. For team members who have CM in Row 3 I need an average of certain cells, for team members who have V in Row 3 I need a different average and for those team members with both CM and V I need an overall average.

I have created a spreadsheet from a master using vlookup. I want to be able to hide rows which contain a null value (NA) in column B (sample attached). Is there a formula I can use which won't interfere with the vlookup or do I need to hide the rows individually? I tried filtering but that only filtered the cell and not the whole row.

I have a set of % score values (e.g. 88%, 94%, 82%, 67%)

I would like to know if there is a relatively simple formula that can be used to calculate the AVERAGE DEVIATION from 100%, as opposed to the AVERAGE DEVIATION from the mean, which is what the excel function =AVEDEV will return.

E.g. The Average Deviation from the mean for the the above set of values is 8.25%, whereas the Average Deviation from 100% is 17.25%

I can create a complex manual formula which sums absolute values of the variation from 100% of each score, and then divides by the count total of the number of scores, however this is flawed for several reasons, including the fact it is very time consuming when used across a large set of scores, and it is corrupted when a non score exists in a cell (some of the 'scores' may be '-', in which case they should be ignored and not included in the calculation of the average deviation from 100% by treating as a 0% score (and a deviation of 100% from 100%).

I have a data set that looks something like the following:

TypeAmountCost

A100$50

A200$40

A300$35

B250$40

B275$55

B500$60

A700$20

B350$25

B450$35

C400$80

C400$60

I am having trouble creating a formula that would calculate the weighted average cost depending on the type (i.e. weighted average cost of $28.84 for A, weighted avg cost of $70 for C).

I am trying to calculate the average Talk Time into Minutes and Seconds. Every time I have tried, I get the wrong average.

For example, if I have a total of 53 calls and the total talk time is 4:19:05, what would the average talk per call be? I tried doing everything in seconds (this would give me a total of 15545 seconds) but the total I was getting is 4:89.

What would the formula be to get the correct average time?

I have a series of numbers in the column AB56 going downwards and in AC56 going downwards their respective counts in a data-set.

What I would like to do is find the average of the min and max, the min and max for the average calculation are both determined by looking at the count column, isolating the max, isolating the min, provided they both have a count greater than zero then averaging both results.

eg.

0.1562818960

0.1558039690

0.1553260431

0.1548481172

0.15437019 2

0.1538922643

0.1534143384

0.1529364124

[code].....

In this calculation the MAX is 0.155326043 because it has a count greater than zero, the MIN would be 0.138120697 as it has a count greater than zero, the average of both would simply be 0.1467. i.e. Average(0.155326043,0.138120697)

I am trying to find a way to average all the numbers placed in one cell with the answer in another.

So in cell A1

1, 2, 3, 2 or 1-2-3-2

In cell A2 would be 2. But the amount of numbers in A1 will vary from time to time.

Total monthly sales

total year sales

and for each model sale calculated as sale quantity / week

I have tried the following way but it did not work:

just next to the pivot table under the heading"AVG" i used the following formula to get the sale/week on cell o6=grand total sale /(applicable no. of weeks).and when i am copying the formula to the cells lying below the formula is being applied as that of the first cell so getting the same result for all the rows.is there a way to calculate sale/ wk within the same table

I need to calculate the average of values in a particular column if some other column contains a particular text. For e.g. I would like to calculate average age of all the people who belong to the Comapny "XYZ". Which means that I have two columns here one is "Age" and the other one is "Company". So For all the people who belong to the company "XYZ", I need to calculate average age.

Company Age

XYZ 24

ABC 26

ABC 34

XYZ 30

My average should be (30+24)/2 = 27.
