E11 through E24 contains numbers and a few errors (#N/A) that need to persist (the errors need to show).

E10 needs to show the average of the numbers that are in E11 through E24, and just ignore the errors.

I have many columns like that - where the errors need to show and I need to show an average of the number/values that do appear, ignoring the errors.

How I can look up non empty cells as shown in the below tables by use of a formula (I guess shifting data to the left without any empty cells between the data)?

Is it possible to make the userform list to not include blanks?

The code is:

VB:

Private Sub UserForm_Activate()

Dim objDic As Object

Dim var, var1, lng As Long

Set objDic = CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")

With Worksheets("ServiceDriftMaaling")

I want to create an excel sheet so that I can price out computer hardware so that I can see what it will cost compared to what we would sell it for I have the basic idea laid out but I'm running into a problem with cells that don't have any information in for pricing. I get a "#DIV/0!" for the formula that i have worked out.

I don't want to change the information in the cells that I have for pricing I just want it to show 0 and call it good. The other isssuse that i'm have at the bottom of the page I'm trying to show the totals for everything.

I did a simple (=F4:F34) to Show the total of all the information in the column but it's showing up "#VALUE!" I know that this is from the earlier error so if I could be shown how to make these errors go away that'd be great the final product that I would like to have is I want to use a macro to transport some of the information to a word document so that I can print it off and show our customers a quote without them being able to see the cost on everything.

I have a list of assessment scores for students with a matching grade in text form. I want to show the percentage of students that receive "Adv" and "Pro" grades out of the total number of students (cells with data). But I have extra cells in case students are added during the year. I need to have the formula ignore any empty cells and count all of the "Adv" + "Pro" grades divided by number of students with data. I would like to do this by including the extra cells in the formula so I don't need to amend the formula should students be added. This is the formula so far. Maybe there is a totally better way to write this formula.

=SUM(COUNTIF(C7:C60,"*"&{"Pro","Adv"}&"*"))/COUNTA(C7:C60)

I have a table that looks similar to the below. I want to be able to extract the numbers between the brackets and add all up in the last column (as shown in example below).

I have used something like the below however it returns #VALUE in column F because of the empty cells.

(SUMPRODUCT(REPLACE(A1:F5,1,FIND("(",A1:F5),"(")+0))

I need a formula that will be applicable even when there are empty cells and return the results as shown.

I am doing an average of a column of cells. How do I tell excel to ignore the blank cells in the column and not calculate them in the average?

View 9 Replies View RelatedI am trying to calculate an average of 800 cells, where I would like to exclude a cell when a certain character is in it, namely "<".

View 4 Replies View RelatedI want to average the cells in column B but ignore values in the corresponding rows with a 1 or 7 in column C.

This will be used in a years data where 1 - 7 are days of the week and I want to separate weekdays from weekends when calculating an average.

I have data in Column A as follows:

A1 15

A2

A3 20

A4 56

A5 45

A6

A7 71

A8

A9 23

where cells A2, A6 and A8 are empty.

I want to be able to AVERAGE or SUM the first four nonblank cells. I know I could manually select the cells, but I have a spreadsheet with 30 columns and 40 rows, and the data (including empty cells) in each column is different.

Is there a single formula that will find the first four nonblank cells and then perform the AVERAGE or SUM function?

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'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 have specific cells A5, C5, D5, F5, H5 that I require and average value for but need to ignore those cells that have a zero value in the averaging.

View 5 Replies View RelatedI'd like to compute the average of a few numbers, but only if the data has a certain number of non-null values. I've attached my Excel sheet for reference.

I have relevant data in columns B and D, where B represents a day and D represents temperature. I'd like to average the temperatures together for each day and place the result in column E. However, this must be done only if each day has at least 22 non-null values (null values are represented by -9999).

A perfect example is day 296 - my average is thrown completely off by the existence of several null values in the last half of the day.

In addition to the problem above, I'd also like to only compute the average using the non-null values (ie, if a day has 23 non-null values and 1 null value, I want to ignore the null value in the average calculation - see day 222 as an example).

In column A I have

A1 = Monday

A2 = Tuesday

A3 = Wednesday

A4 = Thursday

A5 = Friday

B1 – B5 contains values, one of which is zero (b2)

I need to take the value in B5 then divide it by the average of B1:B4, however I need it to ignore the zero

I am making a summery table of lots of soil contaminant data.

In my summery table, for each determinand I want the average value automatically taken from data from a number of other tables within this same spreadsheet.

For example, for pH- I would average the pH value found in each table, from cell D6, G24 and AB9.

The problem:

Out of the three tables where I take each pH value from, on occasions only one will have a value- the other two will be "0".

How do I ensure that, when averages are taken, it will always ignore '0' values?

I have several worksheets with thousands rows (independent variables) and hundreds columns (all dependent variables). Each line basically gives me hundreds values for each independent variable - see below:

...

C9 39.65 653.95 5.28 163.56 99.56 14.49 ... ...

E9 7535.92 21500.56 2835.88 3122.98 7225.34 5371.25 ... ...

G9 111568 298021 12940 31645 181797 36996 ... ....

I need to know how the values in each row are distributed, and I ideally plot a 2D column graph of the distribution. Is there a way to do that and create/program a macro (with relative button on the workboook) that does it automatically once clicked?

Very often there are outlying values (bigger or smaller by a factor of 1000 or even more), mistakes, which I would like to identify and fix possibly

What could be the syntax (in a code) for averaging a range in col C. the range values are given in E3 and E5. (E3=508 & E5=1200) These values changes each time I open the workbook.

View 2 Replies View RelatedI have a spreadsheet that we are using as a Skills Matrix for the team. The area that the team member deals with is listed in Row 3. The scores for each person are recorded in Columns D to M. The process steps being scored against are in Rows 8 to 38, and are seperated by the area of responsibility.

I am trying to work out the average scores of each person depending on their area of responsibility. I can work out the totals easily enough using:

=IF(ISNUMBER(FIND("CM",D3)),SUM(D11,D12,D13,D14,D18,D19,D20,D23,D24,D25,D26,D27,D28,D29,D30),0)

+IF(ISNUMBER(FIND("V",D3)),SUM(D33,D34,D35,D38),0)

But if I use the same for the average scores is works fine until a person covers two duties:

=IF(ISNUMBER(FIND("CM",D3)),AVERAGE(D8:D10,D12:D17,D19:D22,D24:D30),0)

+IF(ISNUMBER(FIND("V",D3)),AVERAGE(D31:D32,D34:D37),0)

This is becuase it adds the 2 averages instead of working out the total average score. Is there an easy way around this?

i.e. For team members who have CM in Row 3 I need an average of certain cells, for team members who have V in Row 3 I need a different average and for those team members with both CM and V I need an overall average.

View 2 Replies View RelatedI have a set of % score values (e.g. 88%, 94%, 82%, 67%)

I would like to know if there is a relatively simple formula that can be used to calculate the AVERAGE DEVIATION from 100%, as opposed to the AVERAGE DEVIATION from the mean, which is what the excel function =AVEDEV will return.

E.g. The Average Deviation from the mean for the the above set of values is 8.25%, whereas the Average Deviation from 100% is 17.25%

I can create a complex manual formula which sums absolute values of the variation from 100% of each score, and then divides by the count total of the number of scores, however this is flawed for several reasons, including the fact it is very time consuming when used across a large set of scores, and it is corrupted when a non score exists in a cell (some of the 'scores' may be '-', in which case they should be ignored and not included in the calculation of the average deviation from 100% by treating as a 0% score (and a deviation of 100% from 100%).

I have a data set that looks something like the following:

TypeAmountCost

A100$50

A200$40

A300$35

B250$40

B275$55

B500$60

A700$20

B350$25

B450$35

C400$80

C400$60

I am having trouble creating a formula that would calculate the weighted average cost depending on the type (i.e. weighted average cost of $28.84 for A, weighted avg cost of $70 for C).

I am trying to calculate the average Talk Time into Minutes and Seconds. Every time I have tried, I get the wrong average.

For example, if I have a total of 53 calls and the total talk time is 4:19:05, what would the average talk per call be? I tried doing everything in seconds (this would give me a total of 15545 seconds) but the total I was getting is 4:89.

What would the formula be to get the correct average time?

I have a series of numbers in the column AB56 going downwards and in AC56 going downwards their respective counts in a data-set.

What I would like to do is find the average of the min and max, the min and max for the average calculation are both determined by looking at the count column, isolating the max, isolating the min, provided they both have a count greater than zero then averaging both results.

eg.

0.1562818960

0.1558039690

0.1553260431

0.1548481172

0.15437019 2

0.1538922643

0.1534143384

0.1529364124

[code].....

In this calculation the MAX is 0.155326043 because it has a count greater than zero, the MIN would be 0.138120697 as it has a count greater than zero, the average of both would simply be 0.1467. i.e. Average(0.155326043,0.138120697)

I am trying to find a way to average all the numbers placed in one cell with the answer in another.

So in cell A1

I have a one column of numbers...let's say consisting of six rows

the following numbers 12,0,14,25,0,9

how can I average the same rows but exclude the zeros in the outcome(is there a formula to do that?)

I would like the answer to be 15.....I still need the zero's in the rows however

i have data on excel which has the following fields:

Invoice No,Inv.Date,Month,Customer,Part Number,Description,Qty.I want my final pivot table to have the following results for every part no. and description

Total monthly sales

total year sales

and for each model sale calculated as sale quantity / week

I have tried the following way but it did not work:

just next to the pivot table under the heading"AVG" i used the following formula to get the sale/week on cell o6=grand total sale /(applicable no. of weeks).and when i am copying the formula to the cells lying below the formula is being applied as that of the first cell so getting the same result for all the rows.is there a way to calculate sale/ wk within the same table
