Is it possible to show "0" zero in the total average column without inputing zeros in the blank cells in row B3:E3 & B4:E4? There are months we receive no boat & RV orders, so those months wll be zero most of the time. Instead of having #DIV/0! it show 0, without having to input zero in cells to compute the average.

Here is the formula I am using however it interprets the blank cells as 0% and includes it in the average. To make it more difficult there will be some 0%'s.

I have a list of 400 cells all in column A. Is there a way to have XL divide them up so that 100 are in column A, 100 in column B, etc., while still treating them like a single column (e.g. Sort will sort them all together)?

I have a scenario where I have a rolling list of sales figures which get added to each week that passes.

I need a formula that will calculate the last 5 weeks of sales and generate an average - which I think I have an idea how to do.

The sticking point is that so as not to skew the averages, when there has been an exceptionally busy or quiet day for a reason we know about I exclude the sales from that week.

This then interferes with the averages as it either takes it as a zero and lowers it or seems to stop formulas from working.

So to summarise:

Average of last 5 weeks sales Excluding any blanks Dynamic enough to always pick up the last 5 values in the list (i.e. the last 5 weeks)

I have an array formula that calculates the average of numbers between two dates:

{=AVERAGE(IF('Date Range'!$B:$B>$H$4,IF('Date Range'!$B:$B<=$B$3,'Numbers to Sum'!$C:$C)))*100}

The start date is the day after the date in H4 and the end date is in cell B3. The dates are in column B and the numbers to sum associated with these dates are in column C.

Some of the cells in column C are blank and my formula is taking these blanks into account in calculating the average, while I would prefer not to count them in the calculation.

Can someone please suggest how I could amend the formula above to accommodate this?

I have a column of data that contains various blank cells where no data was measured. In the adjacent column I want to take the moving average of the last 4 data points including the most recent entry. My problem is i do not know how to handle blank cells where there was no data. I need it to average the last four in the column where data acutally exists. I am ok with using helper cells if needed and I am not worried about the first four results at this time.

I've got a spreadsheet that I do every month with columns of numbers that I average. This sheet has to match about 10 others similar. The columns are divided by Weekdays, Saturdays, Sundays. But some months there are no entries for certain cells on Saturday or Sunday.

I thought that if I just used the Average function, it would dismiss and not count the blank cells. Alas, apparently not. I've highlighted in yellow the one column that I'm really having trouble with.

However, in some cases, the cell to be looked-up may be blank. Using the formula above, the result of these vlookups is "0". I want to take the average of these vlookups excluding the blanks from the 'Raw Data' sheet.

I need to get a formula to calculate the average of the best 3 scores out of 4, but there is some that do not have a value in a cell (so some are only out of 3 scores not 4) and if i simply drop the lowest value and sum the rest, it will incorrectly calculate the average.

I'd like to know how I go about to key a formula to compute the due date 30days after the invoice date and How to key a formula to determine hours worked.

I'm looking for a function that will display the average of a row of cells, while at the same time not displaying any error messages. It's easy to average cells without blank values, but to combine that with no errors is difficult for me. I saw many ways to do the average, one of which is:

= SUM(A1:E1)/COUNTIF(A1:E1,">0")

That function doesn't work for a row of blank cells (i.e., hidden rows), though. The result is an error message.

I also read about a way to ignore an error in a computation:

=IF(ISERROR(F1),"",F1)

The problem is when I combine those functions I get a blank cell no matter which function I put first, and without regards to cell values or not. The reason I want this to be error-free is that I have to average the "average column" at the bottom of the table, too (i.e., F100).

I need to write a formula that will look at a number in a cell and compute an amount at 1% up to 55,000. Then anything above the 55,000 compute an amount at 3.25%. Then add the two together.

So a baseline of 55,000 at 1%. Then above the baseline 3.25%.

I have some question regarding elapse time using excel formula.. Just want to compute for the total hours consume by a person per task assign base on 5 days,8 hours per day working schedule(Saturday and sunday is not included since it is the restday of the agent. Working hours is 8am to 5pm. 12pm -1pm is the time agents take there lunch.

See below example and expected Result:

I can't modify my formula to leave blank cells blank when dragging it down, Also, I've got two formulas that i need to combine. Please view the comments I've put in cells E4, F2,F3,H2 and I2 to understand clearly what am seeking. See the attached worksheet.

I have a grade system where I need to obtain an "Average" of grade data within four cells. At time there may onlt be two cells with a value or three. Example: The cell cell cantain a value of 100 points with the totral of 400 point. AS we know the "Average" would be 100 points. But is only two cells cantained 100 point and the other two where empty then the "Average" come back as 50 points. Because I have 4 cells that requires a value input. So my question is how do I create a formula that will give the correct value for the "Average" of data that is placed in the cells. The values are calculated as a total from the grades entered. That total is in F14, F31, F48, F65 - Now if F14 has a value of 100, and F31 has a value of 100 then the "Average" should be 100, but it is not for the is calculating F48, and F65 as 4 values, so the return is 50. The situtation is that I need all the cells for in some cases data will be necessary, but I need the "average" to be calcalated for only the values entered.

Where is the Formula. =IF(SUM(F14,F31,F48,F65)=0,0,AVERAGE(F14,F31,F48,F65)) - My brain says this is simple but no matter what I do it returns 50.

I need a formula that will look for a name in column "A" and if it find that name it should average the numbers in column "E" to "I". So if TEST ONE is found in A5 then average E5:I5.

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)

i've got a pricing spreadsheet that's doing my head in. hopefully someone can help me with my latest formula issue.

when i expor the file as a pdf, you loose the column names. so...

a b c d e f g h part ID qty 1 price qty 2 price qty 3 price discount price

i want to calculate the discount price as a perctange of either b/c or d/e or f/g groupinsg (qty break & price for that paricular qty amt). The problem is b/c are populated for all rows. some parts have a secdonary price break (d/e) and some have a tiertary price break (f/g).

I want to take the percentge discount off the high qty price break. So if f/g is populated I want to take it from that. If it's not populated, then e/f. and Only if f/g & e/f are NOT populated do i want to take the discount from b/c. is there a formula i can insert into H to do this?

I have been trying to import CSV files into Excel on my new computer. I previously had a windows 7 system with office 2007. I have now moved across to a windows 8 system with office 2013. The problem I am faced with is the CSV files which I imported without problems on my old system don't seem to work on the new one. The excel spreadsheet shows the numbers, but when I try and use any formula, the cell comes up with 0, as if there is nothing in the cell. When using my old system, it shows that it is a picture that needs to be converted to text, but I cannot find out how to sort this out in Windows 8. I have even tried various versions of office, 2007, and 2010 on the windows 8 system with the same problem. I have tried all the things I have found online, checking the regional settings and those type of things.

Count all A's that are also Matt and add up the corresponding figs in J. If use the formula above to 179 (where there are values in the cells) then I get the answer 170 which is correct. Currently with the it set to review all cells from 6 to 300 which includes blanks then it returns #value therfore I assume it is not coping with the blank cells.

I am trying to return the criteria MET, NOT MET & EXCEEDS. This works when each cell contains a number, but when one is blank the formula below returns "EXCEEDS" I'm guessing this is because is sees a blank as zero.

Basically I need to know how to make excel ignore the blank cell and not see it as zero thus returning "EXCEEDS". Although the cell values are integers they are derived from another cell using the following formula, I'm not sure if this makes any difference

I'm looking to create a formula that will skip past any blanks until it finds the latest and most up-to-date value.

Some context: I wish to return a latest estimate value to a cell (A5), and this value is updated quarterly. Let's say that the quater 1 value sits in cell A1, Q2 in A2, Q3 in A3 and Q4 in A4. I wish cell A5 to display the latest estimate as soon as a user updates it on a quarterly basis, but default to the previous quarter's estimate if that latest view is unavailable.

I've tried using some IF(ISBLANK...) combinations but am getting nowhere !

NB want to try and avoid Macros across this worksheet so a formula solution would be best.

In cell C1 I hace A1-B1 and in cell DI want to display the status of the cell C1 like this : =IF(C10 ; "NOT OK" ; "OK") This means that when the value of the cell C1 is different then 0 cell D1 will display "NOT OK" and if the value of cell c1 is 0 then D1 will display "OK".

The PROBLEM: Because the cell C1 contains a formula (A1-B1) the D1 cell will display "NOT OK" even if the cell C1 doesn't show any number.
