# Average Value

#### Saxman

I have a column with the following numbers. How can I award the values
-,0, , with the average of each sequence? Note there are three
sequences. In reality the column would be much longer with more sequences.

do it with a macro:

Sub myAvg()
Dim LRow As Long, i As Long
Dim Start As Long, Ende As Long
Dim c As Range

With ActiveSheet
LRow = .Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
For i = 1 To LRow
Set c = .Range("A1:A" & LRow).Find(0, after:=.Cells(i, 1), _
LookIn:=xlValues, lookat:=xlWhole)
If Not c Is Nothing Then
Ende = c.Row
c.Offset(, 1) = WorksheetFunction.Average _
(.Range(.Cells(i, 1), .Cells(Ende, 1)))
i = Ende + 3
End If
Next
End With

End Sub

This macro writes the average of each sequence in column B if A = 0.
If the 0 should not be included in the average then change this line:
c.Offset(, 1) = WorksheetFunction.Average _
(.Range(.Cells(i, 1), .Cells(Ende-1, 1)))
^^^^^

Thank you Claus, but I need the average for the values, - and blank
(nothing)?

Average ignores blanks and text.
Therefore you have to replace blanks or hyphens with 0
Where does a sequence end? At the first 0 or at first new value?
Has the first sequence the hyphens included or belong these hyphens to
sequence2?

Hyphens and blanks could be replaced with a Find/Replace. They are
horse ratings. Every horse needs to be given a value if they are in a
horserace. (Some horses might have a missing value as it has not ran
before or they might have come from abroad). The average of the race is
a compromise.

The sequence ends where the values change from low to high (hence the sort).

Values would need to be sorted in rating order beforehand.

let the hyphens remain in the cells and try the formula

in workbook "Average"

in this case you have to do it with VBA. Write under the last value in
column A "End" and try this code:

Sub myAvg()
Dim LRow As Long, i As Long
Dim Start As Long
Dim rngC As Range
Dim dblAvg As Double

With ActiveSheet
.Range("A:A").Replace what:="-", replacement:=""
LRow = .Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
Start = 1
For i = Start To LRow
If .Cells(i + 1, 1) > .Cells(i, 1) Then
dblAvg = WorksheetFunction.Sum(.Range(.Cells(Start, 1), _
.Cells(i, 1))) / (i + 1 - Start)
.Range(.Cells(Start, 1), .Cells(i, 1)).Replace _
what:=0, replacement:=dblAvg, lookat:=xlWhole
.Range(.Cells(Start, 1), .Cells(i, 1)).Replace _
what:="", replacement:=dblAvg, lookat:=xlWhole
Start = i + 1
End If
Next
End With

End Sub

Your spreadsheet code works fine, but are you sure with the average
calculation? My calculations differ doing it manually.

The first sequence averages out at 56 and yet 40.72 has been awarded for
the blanks and so forth.

Thank you.

how do you calculate the average?
The first sequence has a sum of 448 and 11 rows with the 0
and the 2 hyphen.
448/11 = 40,7272727272727

Sorry about the delay. There is trouble with the server.

You are correct if one quotes the number of samples (11), giving 40.72. However, if one awards the average of those that have a rating, the answer is 56 to those that do not have a rating?

my server is also down.
What is your expected result for the sequences? Should that result go to all blank cells and all cells with 0 in it?

Kind Regards

I have had a good look at the relevant data. The following non-numerical entries (4) are the following (including zero (0)). I'm noting this because the hyphen (dash) is aligned differently sometimes. Hopefully, it is the same ASCII character?

(Blank)

The average of those with a rating should replace those as immediately above.

For instance:

89
82
68
49
45
37
30
20
-

-
0

Should appear as:

89
82
68
49
45
37
30
20
52.5
52.5
52.5
52.5

That works fine Claus.

Could the code be modified so that the return data was formatted to zero
(0) decimal places?

TIA

insert that line at the end of the code between Next and End With:
Next
.Range("A1:A" & LRow).NumberFormat = "0"
End With

Thanks very much for you valued help and knowledge.

Just one more thing Claus. Could the code be amended for multiple columns?

Ideally, these are the columns to include.

X2:X
Z2:Z
AA2:AA
AB2:AB
AC2:AC
AK2:AK
AL2:AL
AM2:AM
AN2:AN
AO2:AO
