Add Two Columns Together And Then Divide The Sum By Another Column

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:

4+4/636 = 79.5

d2+f2 (divided by) h2 = 79.5

Divide Two Columns But Show My Zero
I have to divide two columns. Sometimes there is a zero in one of the columns. Now, I realize that nothing can be divided by zero, but isn't there a way to show a zero instead of the #ref symbol???

Divide Uneven Data Into Columns
I would normally sort out using Text to Columns, but I can't in this case as the remaining elements can vary.

I have a list of names with Forename and Surname and then the elements after that vary.

Names are written in one cell under a single column like so:

John Smith 13/04/2000
James Smith 123 123 1233
Jane Smith 07122 12345
Another Smith AB99 9CD

All I want to do is end up with 3 columns of data,
Forname | Surname | Other

Is it possible to use a formula to make the breaks into each column at the first 2 spaces only, therefore the contents after the second space would just end up in one cell?

If Column A = 0 Then Adjacent Cell In Column B Divide By .3
Im wondering if this can be done in excel..

2 columns

if the value in column O=$0.00 then I need to divide the adjacent cell in column L by 0.3 or multiply by 30%

this is the way I was trying to do this...


I have tried it several different ways and cannot get it to work - is it my formula or can this even be done because I can't reference just one cell?

Divide Without Using Temp Column
In A1 I have the value 60 I want it in 1:00:00 format

What I do is, I divide that by A1/24*60 and the copy that and paste-special-value on A1

Is there any way to convert the number 60 into 1:00:00 format without having to do calculation in temporary columns?

Nested Loop To Divide Adjacent Row By Column
I am trying to loop through Column Q2:Q2000, and divide the adjacent Row R2:HS2 by the value in the corresponding Q column.

ie. cells R2: HS2 should all be divided by Q2
cells R3:HS3 should all be divided by Q3
etc until R2000:HS2000 are divided by Q2000

I presume that i would require an initial loop to scroll through the column and a seperate loop to scroll through the row values, but i cannot get my head around how this is done.

Divide By Zero Error
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)?

Divide A Given Value Into Several Cells
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.

Divide By Zero Error. #DIV/0
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 ?

Divide Selected Cell By 100
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.

Divide Only With Number Of Cells With Value>0
I really struggle with the following scenario:

A1=5 B1=4 C1=0 D1=0 E1=5

Add Two Numbers And Divide The Result By Another Number
I have a simple formula that adds two numbers and divide the result by another number

K1: SUM(E1,F1) / H1
K2: SUM(E2,F2) / H2
K3: SUM(E3,F3) / H3
K4: SUM(E4,F4) / H4
K5: SUM(E5,F5) / H5

etc, etc

and then I average the results


etc, etc

When H1, H2, H3, etc is 0, it generates a #DIV/0! (since you cannot divide by 0)

I want a formula that I everytime a H1, H2, H3, etc is 0, I want to set it to a specific number H1, H2, H3, etc to 15.00

For example:

IF (H1 = 0, 15.00, sum(E1,F1) / H1)

If the number provided (H1) is 0, set it to 15.00, otherwise add the two numbers (E1, F1), and divide this result by the number provided (H1)

But this is where the problem is:

In every single cell that I have NOT yet provided information, it treats the BLANK cells as if it was 0, and has set every single cell to 15.00.

Conditional Divide (probs Occur When I Manually Enters The Exchange Rate)
The file is a simple sheet which upon entering the actual/Invoice cost (C5), calculates the estimated landing/final cost (C8).

In between the process involves changing the currency from US$ to PKR, make some calculations, and changing back the currency again to US$.

The default rate of currency exchange is set to ave 60 (C12). However if the user knows the current rate he can put it manually in C6 and sheet will make all the calcs on this instead of using the default rate.

Everything is working just too perfect. But probs occur when i manually enters the exchange rate.

It does successfully changes the US$ to PKR and calculates everything perfectly but doesnt reverts the final cost back to US$ successfully instead it keeps using the default value instead of user's value

Splitting One Column Into Many Other Columns
I need a macro which place chosen parts from one column into another column.

For example I have following text in column E:

Column E
Flugschneise {f}
(total) im Arsch [vulg.]
Geld und Gut
Pensum {n}

*chosen content not always at the end of a cell!

Now i need a macro which puts chosen content from Column E to Column F or Column G. For example I want that all {f}s should be deleted from column E and put into column E. Or I want all {n} to be deleted and placed into column F. Or I want all [vulg.] to be deleted from column E and put into column G. If column F or G already consist of text then the new text( {f} or {n} or [vulg.] ...) should be added to the existing text but separated through a separator like comma or semicolon

It means that the macro is each time fed with information about what to delete from which column and where to put it. It would be cool if a simple msg box would ask for the needed information.

The macro would need to look for the blank column (column F) and then insert two columns before it. The columns will be constantly changing so that why it needs to look for that blank column. After they have been inserted would it be possible to give the columns headings such as 'New column 1' and 'New column 2' in row 4.

Split A Column Into Multiple Columns
The spreadsheet contains over 21,000 rows of data, and one of the columns (D I think) contains data as in the two examples below.

What she wants is to split this column at the semi-colons ( and have the column header as the "field" name.

Unfortunately not all the cells have the same number of "fields" as you can see. Some don't have an "addressLineTwo" while others also have "stateprovince".

Is it possible to split the column so each "field" goes into it's own column?

Please note that if a "field" is missing there is not two semi-colons to indicate an empty field. I'm also fairly certain that, between them the two examples below show all possible fields.

Data Examples.

addressLineOne:Road Belen Staana;addressLineTwo:Costado Oeste;city:SAN ANTONIO DE BELEN;highRate:194;latitude:9.97631;longitude:-84.20038;postal4005

addressLineOne:1766 Homestead Drive;airportCode:ROA;city:HOT SPRINGS;highRate:500;latitude:37.99662;longitude:-79.83079;postal24445;Rating:52;stateprovince:US

Didn't there used to be a "Split" function that split text over two cells? I'm sure I used it years ago, but can't find any mention of it in Excel 2003.

Create Separate Columns From One Column
I have a spreadsheet with these columns:Group_Name
Contact Name
Company Name
Contact ID

The Group Name Column has the name of the group that the Contact Name is a member of. The Contact Name could be a member of many Group Names and therefore there may be many rows of the same Contact Name one with each Group Name that they are a member of. I have manually created separate columns for each Group Name in the spreadsheet that is attached.

I would like to have a macro that will look at the Group Name column and create a new column for each distinct group. I then would like the macro to go down the Contact Name column (I believe that I will have to have it sorted)and look at the Group Name that is listed in that row and put "True" in the Group Column that was created in the above step. Then, go to the next row, if the Contact Name is the same, look that the Group Name column and put "True" in the corresponding Group Column in the FIRST ROW OF THAT CONTACT NAME. Then Delete that row.
