Add Two Columns Together And Then Divide The Sum By Another Column
May 11, 2009
I may not even be calling it the right thing. but let me explain what i'm looking to do. i've got three columns on a spreadsheet and i need to be able to add two columns together and then divide the sum by another column. so something like this:
I have attached a sheet as an example, as i am trying to Divide a cell by the number of populated cells in that column e.g column (A) has a table of 16 but only has 13 populated cells in that column, the sum would be something like this =sum(A18/13. Sometimes the column will have less and at times more populated.
Column A | Column B | Column C Los Angeles | Fire Dept | 3 Los Angeles | Health Services | 12 New York | Fire Dept | 8 New York | Health Services | 22 New York | Internal Services | 100 New York | Public Works | 7 Chicago | Health Services | 15 Chicago | Public Works | 56 Chicago | Social Services | 4
And I am trying to make it look like this:
Fire Dept Health Services Internal Services Public Works Social Services
I have conditional formatting on a cell based on a formula, when I entered the solution of "if then 0 " but the cell doesn't see the result as a 0, if I manually enter the 0 the conditional format works.
I even tried putting the formula in another cell and then referencing to that cell, still didn't work...
The "divide by zero error won't trigger the conditional either......
If I have a value of lets say 53, I need it broken down into equal and whole numbers across the spread sheet with the last one being the remaining value.
Currently for example in cell F5 I have a value of 41 that I need to break down so I have done the following: In Cell P5 =IF(F5>=25,F5-21,F5) Then in Cell Z5 =IF(P5>=25,P5-21,P5) and this goes on until I have zero value from the original value in the last cell can i not do this all in one formula and have the results populate in other cells.
I am creating a 'weekly average spreadsheet' (Excel 2007) for a teacher. It has a column for each student's name and his test grade for each day (M-F). The last column gives his weekly average.
She also needs an average for all the students' for the week (vertically). My formula is correct, i.e., =AVERAGE(H2:H11). However, I'm getting a divide by zero error because I have some blank rows above my formula (so she can add new students' names as they come.
How can I get rid of the divide by zero error so she can see the running averages as she inputs grades (but still leaving empty rows for new names)?
I have just started to try and learn VBA for excel. the resource I have been using are books and the WEB. Some how, not sure how there was/is some code where all enteries in all worksheets are divided by 100, i.e if I enter 2222 after clicking the enter button the result in the cell is 22.22. I have deleted all macros and code however the problem still exist.
I have a database that requires me to find the average of some data over several columns, however if one of the values I have to divide by is a zero I get a 'Can't Divide By Zero Error' is there any way to override this ? So that if a Divide by Zero Occurs, instead of returning a 'Can't Divide By Zero Error' it just replaces it with a Zero instead ?
I have minutes of meeting and have to divide them into different sheets against completed, and different departments and dept HOD responsible for it. How do I do it without "Copy/Pasting" the code? Also I have to remove the ones that are done. Any macro or something that can be written for these.
format of sheet Sl No. | Date | Remarks | Dept | Dept Head 1 | Dept Head 2 | Status
I have to get data into different sheets against Dept, Dept Head 1, Dept Head 2 and remove the "Done" status to different sheets.
Excel has a QUARTILE function to divide a population into quartiles. I'm trying to do something similar but divide a population into deciles (i.e., every 10%). Is there any easy way to divide a large population into deciles and to assign a decile to each value in the population (i.e., top 10%, 11-20%, 21-30%, . . . bottom 10%)?
I'm lost on VBA, but I have been successful at recording a few extremely simple macros. I have a number of pdf statements that I have run through OCR, and the OCR often misses the decimal point so that 43.85 comes out as 4385. (this is in dollars, so everything has 2 decimals).
These cells are usually pretty easy to spot, so I want to select that cell, press a keystroke or 2, and divide the value in that cell by 100. I assumed that by selecting "relative cell references", and recording a macro with the keystrokes "<F2>/100<HOME>=" (without the quotes, of course), I would accomplish that. But instead, it places a constant in that cell, with the value obtained in the cell where I recorded the macro.
