Good Morning,

I am trying to average columns of data, but want to exclude cells from the average if they are blank . Is there any way to do this? I am thinking maybe a countif statement in conjunction with an average function?

Thank you,

The formula I am using is as follows:

{=VAR(AVERAGE(IF(A1:A100=2,B1:B100,"")),......}

This formula goes on using 2 to 11 in the logic test statement and takes the variance. But, if one of the cells is blank in the B column, an error occurs in the IF statement evaluation, leading to an error as the final answer.

This workbook will be used by others, and there is no way to predetermine which cells will be blank when data is pasted into the worksheet.

Thanks.

{=SUM(IF((Sev=1)*(Comp=1),1,0))}

Any help is greatly appreciated!! Thank you!!!!!

Example.

5 days worth of date (time formate 00:00:00)

First day 00:05:25

Second day 00:06:01

Third day 00:00:00 (omitted day that i dont' want to be in the calc)

fourth day 00:05:35

Firth day 00:05:47

I'm getting 4:34 because of the zero day instead of the 5:42 actual average.

Is there any way to get a average formula to omit zero's?

thanks

each month by hiding old months (at end) and adding new months (at beginning)

what can be done, by macro or in formula) to ignore the hidden columns?

these data some is blank. How do I get excel to not display these data as '0'

but just to skip the cell.

ex:

(blank) value1 (blank) value2

to

value1 value2

thanks.

Using conditional formatting to color duplicate cells in one column. If the formula does not return anything the cell is coloured because of other blank cells in the column. Formula in J3 is =RIGHT(F3,4) data in F3 is alphanumeric formatted as Text.

I have tried Condition 1 as =IF($J$3:$J$200,J3)1

Can I stop the color appearing in blank cells.

Thanks

Hopefully a simple one for you:

I have a UD function, where the user selects 4 cells. I'm trying to get the function to simply match each of these against each other and place a True in a variable if any of them match with each other.

The way I have done this is probably not the best way:

If Source1.Text = Source2.Text Or Source1.Text = Source3.Text Or Source1.Text = Source4.Text Or Source2.Text = Source3.Text Or Source2.Text = Source4.Text Or Source3.Text = Source4.Text Then

Results4 = True

End If

[Code/]

The problem I get - is that this looks at Blank cells and compares against other blank cells - which I dont want to happen.

Is there any way I can exclude blank cells in my code?

Thanks in advance.

=SUMPRODUCT(($B$2:$B$169="Extra")*((AA$2:AA$169)/COUNTIF($B$2:$B$169,"=Extra")))

i.e under each monthly column this formula displays the average for all 'Extra' services that month.

Column A = List of sites

Column B = Standard, Premium, Extra

Columns C to X = Percentages for that month

Site : Service : May 09 : June 09 : July 09

SITE A : Standard : 100% : 90.99% : 95.34%

SITE A : Premium : 100% : [Blank] : 95.34%

SITE A : Extra : 95.55% : 90.99% : 95.34%

SITE B : Standard : 100% : 90.99% : [Blank]

SITE B : Premium : 100% : 90.99% : 95.34%

SITE B : Extra : 95.55% : [Blank] : 93.34%

SITE C : Standard : 100% : 90.99% : 95.34%

SITE C : Premium : [Blank] : 90.99% : 95.24%

SITE C : Extra : 95.55% : 90.99% : 95.34%

The formula is working perfectly except when the percentage column has a blank cell, which returns an incorrect result.

Is there a way to adapt this formula so that blank cells are ignored data range of percentages.

Please note I don't want to change the order of the rows in the table.

Thanks in advance!

=SUMIF($A$3:$A$44, A3&".?", $C$3:$C$44) / COUNTIF($A$3:$A$44, A3&".?")

It works fine, but treats blank cells as cells with zeros. I was racking my brain to have it ignore empty cells from calculations but to no avail.

My logic behind this is that if there is no value, it never happened and was not planned, so there is no point to take it into consideration.

How can I have the formula ignore blank cells?

Thanks a lot in advance.

however, when i then use the data series to generate a scatter graph, my

whole series disppears, including the cells which contain numeric data.

is there another way of creating a blank cell through use of a formula?

Thank you

An example of my data set looks like this

colA B C D E F G

year (annual tree ring width....each column is an individual tree)

1780 0 0 0 1 0 0

1781 0 2 0 1 2 0

1782 3 4 0 5 3 4

1783 3 1 2 4 2 4

1784 3 3 3 3 3 3

1785 3 4 3 1 2 1

1786 5 2 1 3 2 1

etc..etc..etc

What I am trying to do is get the average of the first 5 non-blank data values in each column.

However, some columns have blank cells (0) before the actual data values start. How can I get an average of the first 5 non blank cells in each column?

(I want to know the average tree ring width over the first 5 years of growth for each tree)

Thanks for any help...have looked all over for this answer! I have at least 800 columns of data and def could use a short cut!

I'm trying to run down through a very long/variable Column Y and add a SUM formula of the cells in Columns J:X to all blank cells in which the row also has an account number in Column A. (I've attached a truncated example of the spreadsheet). Basically, if there is a blank spot in the totals column that also has an account in column A, I need to sum a bunch of the values in between.

Here's a code I've written so far. I tried to add an active cell formula to this to allow the macro to work on any column but had even worse results. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

VB:Thank you,FillEmpty() Dim rCell, rColumn As Range Dim lLastRow As Long lLastRow = Range("Y65536").End(xlUp).Offset(0, 0).Row Set rColumn = Range("Y1:Y" & lLastRow) For Each rCell In rColumn If IsEmpty(rCell) Then If rCell.Offset(0, -25).Value Empty Then rCell.Formula = "=SUM(J:X,rCell.row)" Else End If Else End If Next rCell End SubIf you like these VB formatting tags please consider sponsoring the author in support of injured Royal Marines

I would like to write a macro that would copy formula in B2 and then copy it down row B until it finds that a cell in row A is blank. This report changes all the time so I never know how much data is in row A. So I want the macro to stop copying the formula down row B when it finds a blank cell in Row A.

I tried the Do Until but it did not do anything unless I had something wrong. I recorded the intial copy B2 to B3 to see what it wrote. I tried an if statement also.

Any help would be apprieciated. I have Excel 2003.

one cell contains an IF formula and the false condition it returns an

empty cell "". Problem is now that advanced filter does not treat this

as a true blank cell; it now only matches with strings. So if I have

figure in this column of my database, it is not selected. I would like

to return a true blank from my IF formula, so that everything is

matched both strings and figures. Is this possible?

last non-blank cell in a range. The values in the range are numeric;

however, they're not sorted in numeric order. I could probably figure out

how to write a macro, but I'd prefer a formula. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

I want to retrieve the value for the 2nd, 3rd and 4th non-blank cell in the same row.

I have used =MATCH(TRUE,LEN(B3:Q3)0,0) to retrieve the correct column index for the first non-blank cell and I have used =INDEX(B:Q,2,R3) to retrieve the value but I am having trouble locating a formula to retrieve 2nd/3rd and 4th.

I have attached an example - any help would be appreciated.

I learned that Excel will allow the use of blank cells in mathematical operations. However, it won't allow a cell that appears blank but has a formula in it to also be used in mathematical operations. See cell B3 and you'll see what I mean. Is there a way to make it work? Many thanks.

I need to know the value (which is a date) of the first non-blank cell in a range in a row. I have found some array formulas by searching forums/google etc., but they either return it for the whole row (which I don't want), or they return text (which I don't want), or they don't work at all.

The range is: B9:FL9. Some of the cells in this range are blank, some are "0", and some contain dates. I need to know the most recent (furthest left) cell that contains a date and what that date is. Thanks!

I went into better detail in the attached example.

No luck finding an answer? You could always try Google.
