How To Incorporate An If Then Else Function To An Average Formula

Is there a way to include an if then else function to an average formula that will skip cells with zero?

I went into better detail in the attached example.

Running Average Formula/Function
I wonder if it is possible to formulate a formula in which average values are recalculated after every added record.

For example:
Record 1 shows an amount of 200 so the average value after 1 record is (200/1) 200. Record 2 shows an amount of 250 so the average value after 2 records is ((200+250)/2) 225. Record 3 shows an amount of 210 so the average value after 3 records is ((200+250+210)/3) 220.

I don't want to calculate all averages manually and most probably there must be a formula that is able to recalculate the average value after another record is added to the file.

Incorporate Adjacent Cell In Formula W/o Naming Cell Address?
I searched and I keep finding something that's not quite what I'm looking to do so I think I'm missing something really simple.

Let's say that I want each cell in col b to be the sum of 5 plus whatever value is in the cell adjacent to it on the left (col).

I know that you can just write a formula in each cell like...

b1 will be =sum(a1+5)
b2 will be =sum(a2+5)

... but is there a shortcut so that you don't have to write out the actual cell address for each one?

Meaning - is there a predefined name or something that represents the cell to the left or right so you can just use that instead, allowing you to just copy paste the same formula all the way down the column? Something like...

b1 will be =sum(left+5)
b2 will be =sum(left+5)

... where "left" represents whatever value is in the cell to the left of that particular cell?

Worksheet.function Average Returning Error "Unable To Get The Average Property Of The WorksheetFunction Class"
TotHCInv.Value = WorksheetFunction. Sum(KRInv, PBLInv, CRInv, PVInv)
If i >= 34 Then CPSCtphRMA.Value = WorksheetFunction.Average("G" & (i - 30) & ":G" & i)

The first line runs properly, but the second line bugs out with the error message "Unable to get the Average property of the WorksheetFunction class". I can simply do the math, but I thought that using the worksheet function would be easier than summing and dividing. I'm curious, though, as to why I can't seem to use the Average function.

Incorporate Calendar
I have the following worksheet ,named "Calendar", to make an annual calendar and I'm wondering if there's a way to use it to make a calendar in worksheet named "NovemberDaily". On the worksheet named "NovemberDaily" I want to put in cells C14, G14, K14, O14, S14, W14, and AA14 "11/1/2007" if the weekday of the week matches the date"11/1/2007". Is this possible or is there an easier way of accomplishing this. I'm needing the date (e.g. 11/1/2007) in the cells mentioned because it ties into another formula that I'm using later in the worksheet.

Formula =AVERAGE(B16:L16) To Give The Average
I'm using the formula =AVERAGE(B16:L16) to give me the average.

However I have a couple of problems with this. Firstly I would like to exclude the value zero from the average. Secondly to also ignore the lowest and highest values.

Example, if the values in the cells are 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 then the current result shows 5, by ignoring the 0 and lowest value 1 and highest value 10 the average should be 4.5.

Fill-down For The AVERAGE Function
I am trying to create a table showing the yearly average occupancy rates per quarter for every year between may 1998 and december 2008 inclusive (for licensed hotels, motels and guest houses, and serviced apartments in Australia; if that interests you).

I have a spreadsheet with a row of data showing the appropriate quarterly results for those dates. Let's say the data for this is displayed A1 through to A44.

For the yearly per quarter averages, let's say they are to go from B1 through to B11, I know I could put, for each year, an average formula with the relevant data range. Finding this to be tedious, I tried to fill-down.

I learnt the hard way however (not being too aware of how excel's grammar ticks) that the fill down function will not work for me. i.e., if B1 contained the average for the data range A1:A4 (the four quarters of 1998), the filled-in B2 would have the data range A2:A5 (i.e. the 2nd quarter of 1998 through to the 3rd quarter of 1999).

Average Function: Multiple Arguments
I need some assistance in using an array formula which averages based on multiple arguments. The relevent range names in my input data are:

Col A - Manager Col B - Report Type Col C - Days taken to Complete

and I have used Validation Lists to include several different Managers and 5 Report Types which I'll call A - E, with Days taken to Complete an input. Each Manager may have 0 to numerous instances of each report during each period.

I'm trying to build a table which includes each manager and the average number of days taken to complete each report. The complication is that, while Report A & B are separate reports, for this purpose I need to get an average for A & B together.

For C, D & E, I have used the following:

For A&B, I have tried:


but this doesn't work. Could someone please advise me the correct formula if either of two states in a named range are to be used to average a second named range?

I have 2 sheets recording feedback and summarising the overall percentages for each trainer.

My boss wants me to do this by month!?!?!

I have created a third sheet but I am not sure how to do the following:
Look up the trainer name
Look up the month
identify the percentages for each category
create an overall average of these percentages

So for example if Jon smith trained twice in JAN getting 100% and 50% in cat1, it would display 75% in the cat 1 cell and so on.

AVERAGE Formula Getting #VALUE! Error
I am trying to do an average of quartely results (2008 results) and because certain quarters can have no data present then my quarter shows 0%. But if i do a simple average of all Qs then the 0% affects my overall year to date. I need to keep the 0% because it may be a legit value. So i've devised a way to is if we actually have something in the cell (using isblank). So i test with isblank and if something is present then i use the Quartely value. It could be 50% or it can be 0%.

I would like to incorporate the snapshot but i can't because i do not have access to uploading a picture. If any of you wish i could email the pictures. When i test out my formula in different cells its works but when i combine them all together i get #VALUE! error.

In the example the error comes from the Q3 which test out and should give "" but when its added to the formula i gert #VALUE!. Shouldn't the average function disregard "" cells?

My formula is:
=average((if(and(isblank(F33),isblank(J33),isblank(N33))," ",R33)),(if(and(isblank(T33),isblank(X33),isblank(AB33)),"",AF33)),(if(and(isblank(AH33),isblank(AL33),isblank(AP33)),"",AT33)),(if(and(isblank(AV33),isblank(AZ33),isblank(BD33)),"",BH33)))

Maybe my logic is flawed or there is a better way to do it. Either way i would like your opinion on it.

Formula AVERAGE The Sheet
There are (i think) 5 t-ball coaches
25 5 yrs old
44 6 yrs old
scores were: 5-Excellent, 4-Very Good, 3-Good, 2-Average, 1-Fair

So I was thinking of making 5 sheets (one for each coach, with their scoring for each players)

The last sheet will be what the Average would be for each area from each coach, giving me a general idea about the players that I didn't get to watch and score.

So how would I formula the Avarage sheet?

Again I'm on short notice, and need to have this done on Sunday, when the information starts to come in and I can data-entry the scores, and have it ready for Monday nights draft.

My example is that I want to be able filter my personnel shifts (i.e. 7am, 3pm, 11pm, etc) and then set up a formula which can for example calculate a column of data and average it only based on the employees working that particular shift. My formula should adjust for the shift time I pick.

Specialized Average Formula Needed
In order to avoid embedding 12 if statements, I want to take an average of a selection of cells based on what month it is. So I have a "now" function, and then a month function referencing the "now" cell so that I get the current month as a number 1 through 12. I have a row of expenses (C14:N14) and I just want the average from January up to the current month. The reason I can't take an average of the entire selection is because the users don't want to have to enter a 0 everytime there's nothing, they'd like to leave it blank, so the sheet needs to recognize what month we're up to. And the average function in Excel only takes an average of the data that is present, not the entire range. For example, if the data in the first cell was 15, second cell was 15, and third cell was blank, the average function returns 15 and not 10. So what I need is, for example, if it's March, the average will calculate =average(C14:E14) and so on. Any ideas? Maybe it's a simple change of formula instead.

What I have is an excel sheet with hundreds of regions (going down), all with a different amount of stores. I need a way to populate each of its Region % Total with the weighted average formula (in my example, cells C8, C12, and C20) while also varying the formula to include only the stores in the region.

For example, C8 calculates the weighted average for %s in rows 2 through 7 (6 stores), but C12 calculates it for rows 9 through 11 (3 stores). I need the formula to vary based on the number of stores.

If the difference does not exceed the parameter, then calculate the difference; otherwise the ending result is zero. Pls. note that the error seems to occur when I input the fifth section into the formula.

If,average,sum Formula, For Rating Chart
I'm trying to get a formula working that is basically for a rating chart. The chart is somewhat simple, but the formula is a bit complex (for me anyway)

So the details are the rating is on three axis with three levels, and here is what I need to do.

At the moment the formula below works, but it isn't 100% accurate because I actually need to take an average of F5+G5 then take that value and add it to H5 then divide by two to get the proper average of the two charts. (if that makes sense.


Here is the formula that I thought would have worked, but Excel begs to differ


I played with the brackets quite a bit thinking I had something in the wrong order, but nothing seems to work. I always get FALSE in the field and an error as well when I enter the formula.

Average Formula With Empty Cells
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.
