Have looked at 2 prior 'Running Average' posts, still need help. Issue: Have two columns; 1st is 'number entry' (a new # each day), and 2nd column is the 'Running Avg'. What is the formula that when you add subsequent #s in row 1, the formula automatically adjusts for addition of new number, to then calculate the new 'running avg.' (with out changing the prior 'running averages'.) ....Thanks much.

Hello,

I have a large database on excel (20 000 rows), and need to calculate an average which excludes some values. I tried to use the filter tool and the auto subtotals, but it is too tedious since I need a precise summary day by day for each genre and I have too many lines to do it by hand.

Here is the format of my data :
ASIN - Date - Rank - genre

ASIN contains a product identifier, Date the date when the data was taken, rank the value to be computed and genre is a classifier. I want to automatically compute the average rank of a given genre day by day. Any idea how I could do that?

Here is enclosed a sample data if you want (two days included, bear in mind that the number of product by day may change).
Thanks,

Hi Everyone,

In Excel, if I have a worksheet for each week, what is the best way to keep a running year-to-date average of a value that is in each sheet?

More detail: Each day I am tracking the hours spent on work orders and total hours on the clock. At the end of the week I calculate a "documented hours" percentage. (sum of work order ours/sum of total hours). I want to compare this week with previous weeks and keep a running ytd percentage.

I appreciate any help you can provide!

I recently switched jobs and am challenged daily with new Excel spreadsheets. I have a spreadsheet with daily figures (365 rows plus weekly totals) and my boss wants to also see a running average. Is there an averaging formula that will add a new field each time so that I can copy the formula and not need to enter it for all 365 days?

Thanks for your help.

You can use COUNT to give you the number of cell that there are data in and use that number to create your average. Of course there is the AVERAGE function you can use on a range of cells also.

I have percentages in a column (C3 thru Cx) updated daily. I need to show a running average of all successive daily averages. The daily and overall "process average" will then be displayed on a chart. (no problems doing that). The daily figures are calculated from two other columns that make up the %=x/y function.
I can't seem to use any of the existing AVERAGE functions to automatically recalculate the new number of cells to be averaged as they are added each day. I don't want to have to manually write in a c3,c4,c5 then next day c3,c4,c5,c6 etc. averaging sequence.

Hi guys

I am trying to set up a markbook type thing using excel. File attached.
There are 10 sets of mark. Each set is made up of a academic mark (%), which will be typed in by the teacher. The second column is a symbol which will add or subtract bonus marks. A=25
B=15
C=7.5
D=0
E=-15

The teacher will just type in the symbol.

The third column is a hidden column. This column uses an if function which gives the correct bonus mark as described above.

The fourth column must add the marks from the first column and the bonus marks in the third column.

At the end, there must be an average column, which must keep a running average of the marks.

My problem is this, if I use the sum function it returns a 0 value, if no values are entered. This then messes up the average value at the end. How can I enter the sum value so that if no figures are entered the total cell remains blank so that the correct average value is reflected.

Many thanks

Sorry about freeky subject, I wasn't sure about my nick and paswd

Ok here is the question and it's EXCEL related. I have a long huge spreadsheet with calculated per unit cost per invoice. On monthly basis I would like to calculate the average per unit cost by using the formula =average(a0:a660). I entered that formula but it's calculating the wrong average. IT's including the ROWS which have zero balances. For example if I have only three item in one column it will still devide the total to all 660 ROWS rather then only to three existing numbers.

Any idea why? Any help will be appreciated.

Hi. I have a simple formula:

=AVERAGE(I25,K25,M25,O25,AF25,AH25,AJ25,AL25,BB25,BD25,BF25,BH25)

How do I re-write the formula to ignore the empty cells that return a zero value?
All I want to average are the cells that have a number. If I delete the zero's in the cells that don't have a number the fomula returns a "#DIV/0!, which another formula picks up, therefore I have to keep the zero value and not delete them.

Thanks!

I copied the above cell into several places.
Average function for columns. Average works fine for some columns but not others. If I do a sum/count function on the incorrect columns, the correct answer is returned. It appears as though the count part of average sometimes doesn't work. What's even better, in column with all empty cells, some average functions show an empty cell, others, show {#DIV/0!}

Hi there fellow Excel users .... here is my question:

I have researched a number of GREAT Excel sites, but my issue goes a little beyond what I am finding .. and some of the answers I am seeing go a little beyond me ... so I thought this might be the place to go.

In am trying to get rid of Div/0 errors and keep finding a neat little macro or subroutine, you may be aware of it ... but I do not know how to actually put this sub into my spreadsheet. Not even sure if I want to go the macro route ....so here is my issue:

I am using a series of data that is not congruent and using the COUNTIF function ... that is working fine, but I am averaging a series of averages (using weekly averages of some tracking numbers and then making a monthly average from those 4 or 5 averages). Some weeks there are all zeros which gives me, properly, the div/0 error ... well if any week average has the div/0 error, I then get that error for my monthly average of the averages.

If I could just get my weekly averages that equal div/0 to show up as a blank or better yet, ZERO, then I think my monthly average of averages will work out OK.

I am open to any and all suggestions. Thank you all very much for reviewing this post and possible helping out.

Hi,

Does anyone know a formula for the following? Any help would be great.

A simplified example of what Im looking for is:

I want to find a running average for the amount of miles I drive every week. Collumn A is the days of the week, Collumn B is the miles I drive which are added each day and in Cell C1 I need a running average.

So on Monday if I do 100 miles, C1 will be 100 (100/1)
Tuesday I do 200 miles, C1 will be 150 (100+200/2)
etc

I know there is a formula that keeps a running average in collumn C, but I need to have it in just one cell.

Thanks in advance.

Hi guys.
I'm sure I'm making a meal of this, and it should be really easy...

I have an Excel file that has a list of contiguous dates in column B and values in column C.
The date in B2 is a 15/08/2016 (UK date format), which is a Monday.
In col D, I need to enter a formula that gives an average of the values in C column for the corresponding week.
In other words, the formula result should be the same in cells D2: D8, as it is the average of the values in C2:C8.

The date in cell B9 (22/08/2016) is a Monday again, so the average is now for the next week - i.e. in cells D9: D15 the formula result should be the average of the values in C9:C15.

I can do this manually by entering absolute references following in cells D2: D8:

Code:
=IF(ISERROR(AVERAGE($C$2:$C$8)), NA(), AVERAGE($C$2:$C$8))
And then in cells D9: D15

Code:
=IF(ISERROR(AVERAGE($C$9:$C$15)), NA(), AVERAGE($C$9:$C$15))
And so on.

However, this means manually modifying the formula for each week. I'm sure this can be done better by using formula to 'roll' the average once a week, using a combination of IF, WEEKDAY (or WEEKNUM) and OFFSET...

Chz,

I was able to calculate average time in my original spreadsheet in Excel 2003. However, when I copied data from that spreadsheet to another & attempted to calculate average time it doesn't work! It keeps returning the error code #DIV/0! which I assume is because many of the times I have (they are all in military time) have a zero in the beginning (i.e., 0:01:25). I would just change the time to regular time, but it needs to stay in the military format. Also, the column that the cells are in are formatted as time. What can I do to get past this?

hey all,

for the last several months ive been on a weight loss program and i've tracked my progress using an excel spreadsheet. currently i'm using openoffice (on ubuntu) to update it but it was created in excel 2003. i have a column where i enter my weight every day and i have a cell on another page which returns my most recent entry, for the purposes of projection and trend data, etc. i know im a total nerd about it, but it has worked great. I mostly do this to improve my own excel skills.

anyway, ive been trying to figure out how to get the cell to return the average of my three most recent entries in the weight data column instead of just the one most recent entry. I've been using this function to return the most recent:
Code:
=INDEX(D58:D347,COUNT(D58:D347))
Any ideas on how to adapt that to return the second or third most recent entry? Or is there another function I can use? I know this is such a trivial problem but any help would be appreciated :')

I am currently trying to build a spreadsheet for calculating an individuals production level based on a few criteria:
Must have worked 18 or more hours for the week, anything under 18 hours can't count toward production

Must be the most recent 4 weeks included in the average (anything in the previous weeks must be ignored)

I will be linking a work in progress workbook with some sample numbers, but here are the basics:
I am attempting to calculate a weighted average for both production (hours for the week vs.% of Standard achieved) level and accuracy (units vs accuracy) in I4 and I5 respectively. Production can only be considered valid if an associate reaches 18 hours in that job function. Each week I have to insert a new set of data identical to the previous week, but with updated values. I don't mind manually updating the very simple formula that would be required to find this value, however this is something that I need to share with several non-excel savvy people in my area.

I am hoping that there is a macro out there that would auto-magically appropriately update each of the averages whenever a new week is added to the spreadsheet.

I am a novice when it comes to macros, but I would appreciate any help. Thanks

Just recently moved to a new apartment and had to ditch my dsl for cable. I got the highest service available which was 1536kb/512kb. Now when I do the bandwidth tests on websites I can only get anywhere between 150-200kbps. I had a tech com over here and hook it up correctly, or so it seemed, because it was going very slow to start with. He showed me it was working by downloading a 100mb file and the transfer rate was hitting from 150-250 KB. Just wondering why it is that the internet seems soooo utterly slow but most of the downloads are realitively fast. Maybe I am misunderstanding some term or something but I know this cable line should be higher on the BW tests than 150-200 kbps! I have tried 8 seperate tests to check and all were about the same.

Thanks in advance,

Hello all!

Some of you may know me. Like my software and WinSxS (I love the way WinSxS all fits together!) but am utterly clueless about the hardware. Please forgive me this question!

I have a DESKTOP PC which is NOT overclocked in any way. It is reasonably powerful (see specs) and is a Dell. However, it is used to the extremes of its ability - regularly.

I would just like to ask you what the temperatures you would consider good, warm, and hot for both the GPU and CPU. I know the GPU can get quite hot, but I would please like to know how hot, so that I can learn.

I have a feeling that mine are quite hot. Most of the time I get:

CPU: 52 degrees Centigrade (C)
GPU: 128 C

These seem awfully hot. Putting my hand on the GPU plastic casing after use makes me think that these are not anomalous!

Thanks so much in advance!

In posts i have read concern is usually expressed in 80c+, your CPU looks fine mine runs at 50-65 & max 72c under heavy load. I use Core temp to monitor which also has overheat protection

The tjmax is the CPU manufacturers max temp (assume critical) & safe temps to be 15c-20c below this.

As far as your GPU it looks extremely hot but i do not have a solution for you other than cleaning & extra cooling which i am sure you are already aware of. (my desktop has settings in the BIOS for the fan)

Here are my temps which are for a laptop;

Hi all! Would you all please tell me what is the temperature range that your P50 or P70 typically operates at?   It would also be great if you could measure it under average office use, internet browsing, plus maybe picture/video editing or low-to-mid-level gaming (if you do those sorts of things).  Also, to circumvent potential confusion, please denote what machine you have and in what scale you are getting these temp readings.

Hello all!

Some of you may know me. Like my software and WinSxS (I love the way WinSxS all fits together!) but am utterly clueless about the hardware. Please forgive me this question!

I have a DESKTOP PC which is NOT overclocked in any way. It is reasonably powerful (see specs) and is a Dell. However, it is used to the extremes of its ability - regularly.

I would just like to ask you what the temperatures you would consider good, warm, and hot for both the GPU and CPU. I know the GPU can get quite hot, but I would please like to know how hot, so that I can learn.

I have a feeling that mine are quite hot. Most of the time I get:

CPU: 52 degrees Centigrade (C)
GPU: 128 C

These seem awfully hot. Putting my hand on the GPU plastic casing after use makes me think that these are not anomalous!

Thanks so much in advance!

Richard

EDIT: All of the fans have been confirmed as working, and it has good airflow all around, and always has had.

IS THIS NORMAL ????

No this is not normal, but many people "refresh" their installation after some time (years).
Can you please fill in your System Specs?

I've been blowing through graphics cards about every 12 months. Even with my new system it's been the same. I do play a lot of graphic intensity games. Could that be the reason for their early demise? The latest casualty is my GTX 560.
 

A:The average life of a GPU

A GPU's lifespan is at least 3-5 years. Hell, if you take care of your components it will last as long as you need it to in most cases. The fact that your GPU's are dieing in a year is strange. If this has indeed happened to all of your GPU's it is safe to say that the operating conditions inside your PC may not be too good. Or, you may just be burning them out? Do you SUPER overclock them or something? What sort of operating temps do you usually get?

i have a dell dimension 3000 and i dont know what an average temp is for pc's but its running around 33C (91F) is that good or bad?

i have one fan blowing out with my side panel off and a little 4 inch desk fan i got from walmart blowing in on the side. my pc room stays around 72F or so no dust either i blow my pc out every couple of weeks
 

A:average temp for a pc?

What temp is that case or CPU? If case then what's the CPU temp? Your CPU temp is fine under 65C while under load (gaming, someother heavy processing workout, i.e Prime95). At idle it should be around 30-35C with air cooling and standard room temp. 65C is getting hot and I wouldn't want mine to get any hotter then that, in fact that's the upper safe limit. You really want it no hotter then mid 50's. (under load)

Well... I recently notice some lag on my computer and went over to Speedtest.com to check my speed on the computer. With the results calculated, It said that I'm below the average ISP Provider speed and from before tests i have.

My Average Download Speed Before: 17.64 mlbs
ISP Average Download Speed: 7.34 mlbs
My current Average Download Speed:4.08mlbs

My Average Upload Speed Before: 0.48 mlbs
ISP Average Upload Speed: 0.54mlbs
My current Average Upload Speed: 0.41mlbs

Please Reply ASAP, I'm experiencing major slowness and have work to do on the computer, I will check daily if you havn't post anything yet but if you did I will check this thread every minute.
Thanks

Hi:
can anyone figure out why the sum and average isn't displaying based on what the user enters? it runs and i get values of 0 for each sum and average...any help by MIDNIGHT WOULD BE GREAT!

Code:

#include<iostream.h>

int main()
{
int y, i;
double g, m=0, a;
cout << "Please enter number of values to be processed: ";
cin >> y;//receiving number of values
cout << "Please enter the " << y << " values:\n"; //asking for those values
a = m/y;
for(i = 1; i <= y; i++)
{

cin >> g;
g += m;
}

cout << "Sum: " << m << "\n"; cout << "Average: " << a << "\n";
cout << "Thank you come again!";
return 0;
}
 

A:C++ Sum & Average not working

Here ya go.

BTW, I suggest using var names that
give you an idea of what you're doing,
such as "total", "numentries", etc.

int main()
{
int y, i;
double g, m=0, a;
cout << "Please enter number of values to be processed: ";
cin >> y;//receiving number of values
cout << "Please enter the " << y << " values:\n"; //asking for those values
for(i = 1; i <= y; i++)
{
cin >> g;
m += g; // Add entry (g) to total (m).
}
a = m/y; // divide m (total) by y (number of entries)
cout << "Sum: " << m << "\n"; cout << "Average: " << a << "\n";
cout << "Thank you come again!";
return 0;
}
Hope I'm not doing somebody's homework here...
