# Sort, Select and Avg Macro

A

#### Amy

I have a report that is pulled regularly. It contains thirty day of data
each time. Header row on line 11. Data starts on line 12. Column C & D are
the identifiers of a particular sector. Each sector has 30 lines of data, one
each for 30 days. Then the next sector starts. For each sector, I need to
sort column E from greatest to least, then average the second thru the
seventh value.

In the data below, 1201A would be the first sector, 1201B is the second...I
need to take each sector, sort the Indices greatest to least for that sector,
ignore the first line of data after the sort, average the 2-7 lines of data,
and ignore the rest of the data for the that sector. Then follow the same
process with the next sector. There could be 50 to 100 sectors per report.

Data looks like this:

I'd like the output to create a new sheet with three columns: Sector Num,
Sector ID, Indices Average.

In the example above, my output would be...
Sector Num Sector ID Indices Avg
1201 A 26.05
1201 B 26.68
1201 C 30.47

Can anyone help?? It take so much time to do this manually for each report!!

Thanks!

Nicely framed question!

My results are a tad different to yours

Public Sub ProcessData()
Dim i As Long
Dim LastRow As Long
Dim NextRow As Long

With ActiveSheet

LastRow = .Cells(.Rows.Count, "C").End(xlUp).row

For i = 2 To LastRow Step 30

.Cells(i, "A").Resize(30, 5).Sort _
key1:=.Cells(i, "E"), order1:=xlDescending,
Next i

NextRow = 2
For i = 2 To LastRow Step 30

Worksheets("Sheet2").Range("a1:C1") = Array("Sector Num",
"Sector ID", "Indices Avg")
.Cells(i, "C").Resize(, 2).Copy
Worksheets("Sheet2").Cells(NextRow, "A")
Worksheets("Sheet2").Cells(NextRow, "C").Value =
Application.Average(.Cells(i, "E").Resize(7))
NextRow = NextRow + 1
Next i
End With

End Sub

Watch the word wrap in the line after the sort

Thanks, Bob!

I got the word wrap fixed up but it keeps erroring out at :

Worksheets("Sheet2").Cells(NextRow, "A")

I get a "compile error" Expected: =

Any thoughts?

The line "For i = 2 To LastRow Step 30" should read "For i = 12 To LastRow
Step 30" in both places since you said your data started on Row 12.

#### Bob Phillips

There is other word-wrap Amy which needs correcting. Try this version with
continuations t overcome the wrap (and which also starts at row 12 as Frank
pointed out

Public Sub ProcessData()
Dim i As Long
Dim LastRow As Long
Dim NextRow As Long

With ActiveSheet

LastRow = .Cells(.Rows.Count, "C").End(xlUp).row

For i = 2 To LastRow Step 30

.Cells(i, "A").Resize(30, 5).Sort _
key1:=.Cells(i, "E"), _
order1:=xlDescending, _
Next i

NextRow = 2
For i = 12 To LastRow Step 30

Worksheets("Sheet2").Range("a1:C1") = _
Array("Sector Num", "Sector ID", "Indices Avg")
.Cells(i, "C").Resize(, 2).Copy _
Worksheets("Sheet2").Cells(NextRow, "A")
Worksheets("Sheet2").Cells(NextRow, "C").Value = _
Application.Average(.Cells(i, "E").Resize(7))
NextRow = NextRow + 1
Next i
End With

End Sub

Oops, missed one of the startrows

Public Sub ProcessData()
Dim i As Long
Dim LastRow As Long
Dim NextRow As Long

With ActiveSheet

LastRow = .Cells(.Rows.Count, "C").End(xlUp).row

For i = 12 To LastRow Step 30

.Cells(i, "A").Resize(30, 5).Sort _
key1:=.Cells(i, "E"), _
order1:=xlDescending, _
Next i

NextRow = 2
For i = 12 To LastRow Step 30

Worksheets("Sheet2").Range("a1:C1") = _
Array("Sector Num", "Sector ID", "Indices Avg")
.Cells(i, "C").Resize(, 2).Copy _
Worksheets("Sheet2").Cells(NextRow, "A")
Worksheets("Sheet2").Cells(NextRow, "C").Value = _
Application.Average(.Cells(i, "E").Resize(7))
NextRow = NextRow + 1
Next i
End With

End Sub

Thanks, Bob! (and Frank)

This works great with one exception. It seems to be averaging the top seven
results after the sort. I need to skip the first result and only average
lines 2-7 after the sort. So it's only averaging 6 rows, not including the
first. I hope that makes sense.

Any more thoughts? Thanks!!

(Sorry for the delay in response. Busy week!!)

Try this

Public Sub ProcessData()
Dim i As Long
Dim LastRow As Long
Dim NextRow As Long

With ActiveSheet

LastRow = .Cells(.Rows.Count, "C").End(xlUp).Row

For i = 12 To LastRow Step 30

.Cells(i, "A").Resize(30, 5).Sort _
key1:=.Cells(i, "E"), _
order1:=xlDescending, _
Next i

NextRow = 2
For i = 12 To LastRow Step 30

Worksheets("Sheet2").Range("A1:C1") = _
Array("Sector Num", "Sector ID", "Indices Avg")
.Cells(i, "C").Resize(, 2).Copy _
Worksheets("Sheet2").Cells(NextRow, "A")
Worksheets("Sheet2").Cells(NextRow, "C").Value = _
Application.Average(.Cells(i, "E").Resize(6))
NextRow = NextRow + 1
Next i
End With

End Sub
