Assuming you have range named Activity like so:

LocationSize Function ActivityCount
3 Copy 96
33 Copy 54
4 Copy 93
44 Copy 77
3 Print 66
33 Print 15
4 Print 73
44 Print 85

and another range named Location like so (this takes your range of 1-10 and
breaks it into two columns, LBound & UBound )

Lbound Ubound
1 10
11 20
21 30
31 40
41 50

then you can use MS Query (Data->Get External Data->New database Query) to

In MS Query, select Excel, the navigate to and choose the file that has your
data in it and, when prompted, select either the Activity or the Location
ranges. Click on OK to get to the step in the Wizard that allows you to Edit
in MS Query

Once the Query editor is open, click on the SQL button and paste in this code

SELECT
location.Ubound,
Activity.Function,
Min(Activity.ActivityCount) AS 'Minimum',
Max(Activity.ActivityCount) AS 'maximum',
Avg(Activity.ActivityCount) AS 'average'
FROM Activity Activity, location location
WHERE
(
Activity.LocationSize>=location.lbound
And
Activity.LocationSize<=location.ubound)
GROUP BY location.Ubound, Activity.Function

Then click on OK. Under the File menu is an option to return the query's
data to Excel

After you return it to Excel, change the UBound & LBound numbers in the
Location range, then right click the Query results and choose refresh

I would recommend that you split those into separate cells. Your formulas
would then be less complicated.

For your last range I'd use a really big arbitrary number that you know will
never be exceded. Like this:

...........B..........C
5........1..........10
6.......11.........30
7.......31.........50
8.......51.........1000

Then this:

=COUNTIF(Analysis!\$I\$7:\$I\$151,">="&VALUE(LEFT(Matrix!\$B5,FIND("-",Matrix!\$B5)-1)))-COUNTIF(Analysis!\$I\$7:\$I\$151,">"&VALUE(MID(Matrix!\$B5,FIND("-",Matrix!\$B5)+1,LEN(Matrix!\$B5))))

Becomes this:

=SUMPRODUCT(--(Analysis!\$I\$7:\$I\$151>=Matrix!\$B5),--(Analysis!\$I\$7:\$I\$151<=Matrix!\$C5))

Now your avg, min, max become relatively easy. Follow this general syntax
and array enter** :

=AVERAGE(IF((Analysis!\$I\$7:\$I\$151>=Matrix!\$B5)*(Analysis!\$I\$7:\$I\$151<=Matrix!\$C5)*(Nums<>0),Nums))

Where Nums are the values to avg based on the head count range.

** array formulas need to be entered using the key combination of
CTRL,SHIFT,ENTER (not just ENTER)

I added the column and broke up the ranges but the calculation did not yield
results. It returned #NA. I already have 8 calcs based on this methodology
and can't afford to redo all this work.

Duke's answer seems pretty complicated but I'll give it a try. I've never
used the MS Query function.

Did you enter Biff's formula as an array (Ctrl-Shift-Enter)?

MS Query allows you to treat your file as if it were a database. Your named
ranges MUST INCLUDE THE COLUMN HEADERS. I didn't make that point in the
first message.

The query I gave you is dependent on your breaking out the ranges as Biff
suggested

If you provide the exact column names and the exact range names, I can
provide you with the precise SQL code you'd need to use

For your last range I'd use a really big arbitrary number that you know will

Becomes this:

=SUMPRODUCT(--(Analysis!\$I\$7:\$I\$151>=Matrix!\$B5),--(Analysis!\$I\$7:\$I\$151<=Matrix!\$C5))

Now your avg, min, max become relatively easy. Follow this general syntax

I thought I would be able to use this methodology throughout but...Now I'm
trying to figure out device volumes. Problem is, I've hit a wall trying to
use the min, max and avg within the range condition. The Analysis! tab
needs
to also be free to be sorted and resorted for other purposes w/o affecting
the results of the Matrix!. So I want each formula to give me the Min, Max
and Avg of all records in Analysis!\$7:\$151 that fall headcountwise within
the
range specified, AND I need each formula to ignore zero and blank cells.
Volumes are located as follows:
Print Volume: Analysis!\$AH\$7:\$AH\$151
Copy Volume: Analysis!\$CQ\$7:\$CQAH\$151
...etc, I can plug in the others once I have a working formula

I hope I gave enough info and didn't confuse things. I'll be more than
happy
to share the file if I'm told where to send it. I've been working on it
for 2
days now. I tried this syntax which in my feeble mind is what I want but
excel won't accept it, it shades [\$I\$151">="] as an error
=min(if(and(Analysis!\$I\$7:\$I\$151">="&VALUE(LEFT(Matrix!\$B5,FIND("-",Matrix!\$B5)-1)),Analysis!\$I\$7:\$I\$151">"&VALUE(MID(Matrix!\$B5,FIND("-",Matrix!\$B5)+1,LEN(Matrix!\$B5)))),Analysis!\$AH\$7:\$AH\$151))

Hopefully, whatever I get from this post I can also use for MAX and
AVERAGE
functions.

I would recommend that you split those into separate cells. Your formulas
would then be less complicated.

For your last range I'd use a really big arbitrary number that you know
will
never be exceded. Like this:

...........B..........C
5........1..........10
6.......11.........30
7.......31.........50
8.......51.........1000

Then this:

=COUNTIF(Analysis!\$I\$7:\$I\$151,">="&VALUE(LEFT(Matrix!\$B5,FIND("-",Matrix!\$B5)-1)))-COUNTIF(Analysis!\$I\$7:\$I\$151,">"&VALUE(MID(Matrix!\$B5,FIND("-",Matrix!\$B5)+1,LEN(Matrix!\$B5))))

Becomes this:

=SUMPRODUCT(--(Analysis!\$I\$7:\$I\$151>=Matrix!\$B5),--(Analysis!\$I\$7:\$I\$151<=Matrix!\$C5))

Now your avg, min, max become relatively easy. Follow this general syntax
and array enter** :

=AVERAGE(IF((Analysis!\$I\$7:\$I\$151>=Matrix!\$B5)*(Analysis!\$I\$7:\$I\$151<=Matrix!\$C5)*(Nums<>0),Nums))

Where Nums are the values to avg based on the head count range.

** array formulas need to be entered using the key combination of
CTRL,SHIFT,ENTER (not just ENTER)

I did enter as array, but it didn't work.
The source tab (survey response) is not the prettiest of creatures.
Everything is text and column headings are a complex mix of merged cells and
subcells. It's not a simple tabular table. And I wasn't given enough time to
clean it up before arriving at the stats.

It would probably be easiest to understand if you can see it. Is there a
place I can send it?

Duke Carey said:
Did you enter Biff's formula as an array (Ctrl-Shift-Enter)?

MS Query allows you to treat your file as if it were a database. Your named
ranges MUST INCLUDE THE COLUMN HEADERS. I didn't make that point in the
first message.

The query I gave you is dependent on your breaking out the ranges as Biff
suggested

If you provide the exact column names and the exact range names, I can
provide you with the precise SQL code you'd need to use

Matrix!\$B\$5:\$B\$8 are arbitrary ranges which will change until a set

device

HC Range

All the other calcs on Matrix! are based on HC Range col, because
they
go
fetch the info in Analysis! based on whether or not that locn fits
the
range
size on this column. This is the dynamic range part. Bernie D. was
kind
enough to help with counting the # of locns which fit the range on
each
cell;
I've then been able to modify his formula in Matrix!\$G5:\$G8...
=COUNTIF(Analysis!\$I\$7:\$I\$151,">="&VALUE(LEFT(Matrix!\$B5,FIND("-",Matrix!\$B5)-1)))-COUNTIF(Analysis!\$I\$7:\$I\$151,">"&VALUE(MID(Matrix!\$B5,FIND("-",Matrix!\$B5)+1,LEN(Matrix!\$B5))))

I thought I would be able to use this methodology throughout
but...Now
I'm
trying to figure out device volumes. Problem is, I've hit a wall
trying
to
use the min, max and avg within the range condition. The Analysis!
tab
needs
to also be free to be sorted and resorted for other purposes w/o
affecting
the results of the Matrix!. So I want each formula to give me the
Min,
Max
and Avg of all records in Analysis!\$7:\$151 that fall headcountwise
within
the
range specified, AND I need each formula to ignore zero and blank
cells.
Volumes are located as follows:
Print Volume: Analysis!\$AH\$7:\$AH\$151
Copy Volume: Analysis!\$CQ\$7:\$CQAH\$151
...etc, I can plug in the others once I have a working formula

I hope I gave enough info and didn't confuse things. I'll be more
than
happy
to share the file if I'm told where to send it. I've been working on
it
for 2
days now. I tried this syntax which in my feeble mind is what I want
but
excel won't accept it, it shades [\$I\$151">="] as an error
=min(if(and(Analysis!\$I\$7:\$I\$151">="&VALUE(LEFT(Matrix!\$B5,FIND("-",Matrix!\$B5)-1)),Analysis!\$I\$7:\$I\$151">"&VALUE(MID(Matrix!\$B5,FIND("-",Matrix!\$B5)+1,LEN(Matrix!\$B5)))),Analysis!\$AH\$7:\$AH\$151))

Hopefully, whatever I get from this post I can also use for MAX and
AVERAGE
functions.

Thank you all who managed to read the whole thing before falling

I added the column and broke up the ranges but the calculation did

Hello, Biff,
I am trying to accomplish a MAX formula for 3 specified ranges within 1

=AVERAGE(IF((Analysis!\$I\$7:\$I\$151>=Matrix!\$B5)*(Analysis!\$I\$7:\$I\$151<=Matrix!\$C5)*(Nums<>0),Nums))

I have 3 ranges within a column - 0-999, 1000-1999, 2000+ and I am looking
to find the MAX number in each range. I have the formulas for the first and
last range, but I am having trouble getting the formula to work for the
middle range.

I modifed the formula to
=MAX(sumproduct(\$B\$2:\$B\$1344>=1000)*(\$B\$2:\$B\$1344<2000))) and it gives me a
result of 79. I have tried entering like this and as an array and get the
same result. It works on the first range when I change 1000 to 0 and 2000 to
1000, but not the mid-range. Can you help?

Thanks,
Valerie

I'm
trying to figure out device volumes. Problem is, I've hit a wall trying
to
use the min, max and avg within the range condition. The Analysis! tab
needs
to also be free to be sorted and resorted for other purposes w/o
affecting
the results of the Matrix!. So I want each formula to give me the Min,
Max
and Avg of all records in Analysis!\$7:\$151 that fall headcountwise
within
the
range specified, AND I need each formula to ignore zero and blank
cells.
Volumes are located as follows:
Print Volume: Analysis!\$AH\$7:\$AH\$151
Copy Volume: Analysis!\$CQ\$7:\$CQAH\$151
...etc, I can plug in the others once I have a working formula

I hope I gave enough info and didn't confuse things. I'll be more than
happy
to share the file if I'm told where to send it. I've been working on it
for 2
days now. I tried this syntax which in my feeble mind is what I want

excel won't accept it, it shades [\$I\$151">="] as an error

Hopefully, whatever I get from this post I can also use for MAX and

functions.

Thank you all who managed to read the whole thing before falling

Hello, Biff,
I am trying to accomplish a MAX formula for 3 specified ranges within 1
below:

=AVERAGE(IF((Analysis!\$I\$7:\$I\$151>=Matrix!\$B5)*(Analysis!\$I\$7:\$I\$151<=Matrix!\$C5)*(Nums<>0),Nums))

I have 3 ranges within a column - 0-999, 1000-1999, 2000+ and I am looking
to find the MAX number in each range. I have the formulas for the first
and
last range, but I am having trouble getting the formula to work for the
middle range.

I modifed the formula to
=MAX(sumproduct(\$B\$2:\$B\$1344>=1000)*(\$B\$2:\$B\$1344<2000))) and it gives me
a
result of 79. I have tried entering like this and as an array and get the
same result. It works on the first range when I change 1000 to 0 and 2000
to
1000, but not the mid-range. Can you help?

Thanks,
Valerie

I would recommend that you split those into separate cells. Your formulas
would then be less complicated.

For your last range I'd use a really big arbitrary number that you know
will
never be exceded. Like this:

...........B..........C
5........1..........10
6.......11.........30
7.......31.........50
8.......51.........1000

Then this:

=COUNTIF(Analysis!\$I\$7:\$I\$151,">="&VALUE(LEFT(Matrix!\$B5,FIND("-",Matrix!\$B5)-1)))-COUNTIF(Analysis!\$I\$7:\$I\$151,">"&VALUE(MID(Matrix!\$B5,FIND("-",Matrix!\$B5)+1,LEN(Matrix!\$B5))))

Becomes this:

=SUMPRODUCT(--(Analysis!\$I\$7:\$I\$151>=Matrix!\$B5),--(Analysis!\$I\$7:\$I\$151<=Matrix!\$C5))

Now your avg, min, max become relatively easy. Follow this general syntax
and array enter** :

=AVERAGE(IF((Analysis!\$I\$7:\$I\$151>=Matrix!\$B5)*(Analysis!\$I\$7:\$I\$151<=Matrix!\$C5)*(Nums<>0),Nums))

Where Nums are the values to avg based on the head count range.
