# Find The Maximun Number For The Past N Periods In A Range Of Cells

Dec 9, 2009
(1) I want to find the maximun number for the past n periods in a range of cells, but I want to be able to vary n by changing the number of periods in one cell at the top of the sheet, i.e. if i enter 10 in cell A1 the function will return the max number for 10 periods over a certein range, if I change the figure to 20, then the max number for 20 periods will be returned!

(2) I have a column (lets say column c) which will return a number of values if my criteria are met and 0 if not, I want a function in another column which will replace the 0 with the next non 0 figure in column c, the gaps between the non 0 figures can vary. I feel it involves looping in some form, and writing a new function, but I am not sure.

I am having the same problem as this thread Dynamic Ranges with blank cells.

I've recently been pointed in the direction of dynamic ranges (named ranges that use OFFSET and COUNTA to expand to cover the whole of a list, even if the number of rows used is frequently changed).

They seem to have a big drawback, in that the range will not go to the bottom of the list if the list has blank cells in (because the COUNTA for the column of interest does not equal the number of rows in the list).

A typical named range might look like this:

=OFFSET(Sheet1!$A$2,0,0,COUNTA(Sheet1!$A$2:$A$25),1)

I tried to post in it but it's too old.

I have been to the link posted in that thread about advanced dynamic named ranges but inserting a row with numbers in it and then hiding it is not suitable for me as i deal with other peoples spreadsheets so need to always be working with the Active Sheet.

I am trying to find number of cells in a range.

I tried:

=COUNTIF(U97:U103,AND(">"&5,"<"&8))

and assumed it will count the 6 and 7's.

It always results with 0.

I want to find the total number of times the number 1 appears in cells B2 to B33.

In each cell I have codes such as 4919409382a, 5021193035v and so on.

I have tried =COUNTIF(B2:B33,"1") but just get 0 returned.

Our company has been taken over by new mgt (Y co) on 1st Nov 2012 from old mgt (X co). Y co has the policy of providing employees with EOS benefits as mentioned below:

1st 5 yrs - 1 month salary per year

5-10 yrs - 1.5 month salary per year

+10 yrs - 2 months salary per year

But for deciding the slab, total period of service is considered. The below table provides the calculation of days as on 31st Dec 2012 based on different joining dates which I need to fix by way of formula.

I'm trying to calculate the length of a work order to develop an average and future proposal estimates.

For example:

Job received = A1

In work = B1

Job completed = C1

Total days to complete = D1

I know I can enter in D1 C1-A1 and get the correct result but I want the field to calculate A1-TODAY() until a completion date is entered. This would display the number of days the job has been in work until completed. Once completed use the C1 for calculation.

Sorta like

If(C1=">=0" then (A1-Today()) else C1-A1)

I will then use conditional formatting with block colors to indicate whether it is a completed job or in work job.

I am attempting to create a formula that will count the number of times, lets say letter A, occurs in column E. However, the tricky part that I have been confused on is that I only want to count how many times A occurs between each hour of the day. I need to count number of times "A" occurs between each hour of the day for the entire month.

My Worksheet looks as such: Column A contains the dates for the month of November, Column B contains times that random instances occur, Column C is not important, Column E contains a Letter A-N that pertains to what occurred at a time in column B. SO, Column B and column E coordinate with each other.

Here is an example. Column A - Cell A1 - 11/01/2013 , A2 - 11/02/2013, A3 - 11/03/2013.

Column B - Cell B1 - 12:01 AM , Cell B2 - 14:03 , Cell B3 - 15:23

Column C - Cell E1 - A , Cell E2 - A, Cell E3 - B

So I would like Column F to display that between 12:00 - 12:59 Am there was X number of times the letter A occurred throughout the entire month.

I would like to run a macro that would check if the date in the first cell of row is in the past.

If yes, then it would clear contents of cell in B,C,F,I,L of the same row (PLAN + SHIFTS). Or even better it would set them to 0 (zero).

Then it would hide the entire row. Is this even possible?

Please see the example: Excel.JPG

I currently have a sheet that shows monthly tasks and their due dates. There is also a control that when clicked, resets the due date to the following month of the same day.

What I would like to do is setup some type of reminder such as either flash the due date cell if possible or change the fill color. It should do this when the system date is = to or 4 days before the due date.

The only way I can see doing this is using VBA, which I do not know very well.

Create a formula to find a number in a range. For instance, A1 is qty 1-100, any qty in this range,the cost charges is $10(B1).Whereas A2 is qty 101-200 and any qty in this range, cost charges is $8(B2).

C1 is the cell for me to enter the qty, if I enter 90, I want D1 to return as $10. If I enter 110, then D1 to return as $8.

I receive a workbook from multiple vendors on a weekly basis. Part of the data in the workbook is their production schedule for each part. I need to pull the quantity out of the cell containing their production schedule, but the problem is each vendor enters thier data differently, (as seen in the attached sample workbook).

I know I could request that each vendor comply to a new format I could send out, in which date and quantity are in seperate columns, but this format has been in use for a long time, and most of them have automated the output, so I thought I'd try to fix it on my end first.

I have thousands of timestamps that have a start & end date and time in 2 separate columns. (one named start and one named end...)

I also have numerous set time periods that i'm interested in.. (about a dozen or so)

for example 01/01/2008 - 05/01/2008, 07:30:00 - 10:00:00

What i need is to be able to count the number of times the full time period i am interested (07:30:00 - 10:00:00) in falls in between the thousands of start and end timestamps i have. The time periods must also fall within the date range specifed.

So if my timestamps were

Start: 01/01/2008 06:30:00 & End: 02/01/2008 11:00:00, based on the set time period above, there would be a count of 2

and if my timestamps were

Start: 01/01/2008 07:05:00 & End: 02/01/2008 09:00:00 there would be a count of zero as there is not a full uninterupted timeperiod 07:00:00 - 10:00:00 between these timestamps.

and if my timestamps were:

Start 01/01/2007 07:00:00 & End 02/01/2007 10:00:00 the count would be zer as this is a year early!

I need method, using a button, that looks at a cell--say EO2, for example--, looks back on a master worksheet at a specified row and range for a match, then looks at the information from a specified range below the matching cell (The information in this column will either be blank or have an "X" in the cell), and then those rows that do not have an "X" will be hidden in the corresponding rows in the working worksheet. Therefore, if at any time the value in "EO2" ever changes, then it will automatically find a new match and repopulate and hide information as before. About 130 columns will have its own button so that a "query" can be made that depends on the information in a particular cell in that column.

The master worksheet now has matrix of 287 rows and 58 columns. Each row is for an operating procedure and each column shows a job code. An "X" in a coordinate cell for a column/row shows whether that job code is responsible for knowing that operating procedure. So, on the working sheet, an employee's primary job code is given underneath his or her name. When the button is pushed, all the operating procedures not required for a given person will be hidden and only the required ones will remain visible--grouped, if you will. Qualification dates will be easier to see now that the information is consolidated. Whenever someone transfers to a new position, a new code will be inputed on the working sheet. When the button is pushed, a new grouping will result. Any operating instructions that overlap will still have qualification dates, so that information will not need to be transcribed.

I'm trying to make a by month spreadsheet that has all twelve month ranges starting in for a3. in a3 it would have the start date and in a4 it would have the end date. I'm trying to locate all of the dates between those two dates and pull in the profit ammounts from another sheet, the results would be in row 5. I would also like to pull in the loss amounts and have them in row 6. All corresponding with the date range in rows 3 and 4.

I'm working on a project for my company. We make plastic tanks and for quality control we want to start recording the thickness of the tanks in different areas/zones of each tank.

Attached to this message is an Excel sheet that I've been working on. From "Sheet 1", it records inputted thicknesses into WorkSheet "1098". On the top of "1098", it shows all of the recordings, and just below that are the "10 Most Recent Entries".

Right below the "10 Most Recent Entries", there are formulas to calculate the Min and Max Values. Whenever a new entry is recorded, the selected cells for the Min and Max formulas change. Is there a way to force the cells to always stay the same?

I'm looking for a formula, which says if a number is within a range, perform a calculation. I have a table of ranges (0-6000,6001-10000,10000-12000, and so on). My formula looks at the current month cumulative balance, and inserts the value into the line of the range it falls into. However, the formula now contains lots of nested "IF" statements, due to the number of ranges I have. Also, if my cummulative balance is 6005 for example, but was 5005 in the previous month, I would like to see 95 in the 0-6000 row, and 5 in the 6000-10000 row. I making a complete nonsense of trying to explain myself, so I'll attach a quick example of what I'd like to see.

We are trying to track the average star values of reviews posted to our clients accounts. Here is an example of the spreadsheet we have set up:

Company Name

Review 1

Review 2

Review 3

Review 4

Review 5

Company 1

[CTY] 4 Stars review content

[ISP] 5 stars review content

[GGL] 4 stars review content

[CTY] 3 stars review content

[YELP]5stars review content

In this example, we use the initial [ ] to track which site the review was posted on ex: [CTY] means city search, [GGL] means google, etc.

We want to be able to track the average star value on each site. So the formula for City Search would scroll across the row of reviews, pick out reviews 1 and 4 and then find the first number in each and average them. The result in this case would be 3.5

From the research we have done so far, this looks like it will require a complex array formula. How to make this formula? Is this even possible what we are trying to do?

I have this formula in columns C:D and G:F -

Try this formula. Array formulas will have curly brackets {} emcompassing the ENTIRE formula. You do not add these, you Enter the formula with Ctrl+Shift+Enter and Excel will add them (details: Array formulas). Many more Excel Formulas

=IF(ISERROR(MATCH(A1494,Jan07!A:A,0)),"",INDEX(Jan07!A:B,MATCH(A1494,Jan07!A:A,0),2))

Some of the cells end up with nothing in them. Columns E and H are the differenced of C & D and G & F respectfully. The problem is that some of the cells in E and H state #VALUE! because there isn't any data in the other columns (C2 is blank, D2 is 24, E2 is #VALUE!). If I update C2 with 0 then I receive the correct answer in E2 of -24.

I want to have a macro auto fill all blank cells (even though there is the formula in them there isn't data) with a "0". I am using the below code and it is Compile error: Type mismatch at the "True" part of the code.

Sub FindEmptyCellAutoFill()

Dim rFound As Range

With ActiveSheet.Range("C:D", "F:G")

Do

Set rFound = . Find(What:=" ", LookIn:=xlValues)

If rFound Is True Then AutoFillValue "0"

If rFound Is False Then Exit Do

Loop

End With

End Sub

I'm writing a macro that will import data from one workbook to another, based on yesterdays date. I have the import functionality working, and I've been playing all afternoon, but I can't find a way to find yesterdays date in a range and use that row number as the row offset value in this line:

Rather than having a set row offset value (in this case, 14) I would like to use the find function to lookup yesterdays date in range "B50:B80" in the worksheet I've designated as "sh1" and return the row number of the cell that has yesterdays date and use this value as the row offset value, replacing the hard coded 14 that is in there currently. The date values in the range are formatted as per Date Format.jpg.
