hello,

I need help creating a median formula.

i have 2 worksheets on the worksheetA the user enters a list of names. on worksheetB is the data for these names. the function needs to get all the names search to see if they match on worksheet b and then take the values and return an median

this is the function i had used to return the average

=(DAVERAGE('2000'!$A$1:$CR$10650,$A3,Inputs!$B$9:$C$26))

200 is the name of the data table a1:cr10650 encompasses the complete table. A3 is the column refrence, inputs is the table where the names are listed and b9/c26 is that complete table..

=MEDIAN(IF(('1998'!$A$2:$A$10649=Inputs!$B$9:$B$26)*('1998'!$CS$2:$CS$10649=Inputs!$C$9:$C$26),''1998'!$B$2:$B$10649))

i was hoping this formula would replace the old one but it didnt work. basically i wanted this formula to see if there was a name in column a on the 1998 worksheet which matched the name on the inputs worksheet and if cs (Another field) matched c on the inputs worksheet and if it did to return b from 1998 and give me the median...



hope this is enough detail.. and not too much either...

PLEASE HELP

  1. Windows
1. Part of your example syntax is incorrect and or typos
2. You could have provided a clearer question.
3. I do not know what you intended by your follow up point.

The following is an example of calculation of an overall Median and a calculation of Median by item. It is probably different than your information. It includes

Number Category Price
4 Apples 0.25
5 Oranges 0.5
2 Apples 0.35
7 Plums 0.3
4 Oranges 0.4
2 Plums 0.25
3 Oranges 0.3
2 Oranges 0.2
9 Apples 0.9
1 Oranges 0.1



Plums 0.3
Apples 0.9
Oranges 0.4

Overall 0.35


Formulas for

Overall =MEDIAN(IF(rQty>=TRANSPOSE(ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&MAX(rQty)))),rPrice))

Item such as Plums
=MEDIAN(IF((rItems=B71)*(rQty)>=TRANSPOSE(ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&MAX(rQty)))),rPrice))



Perhaps some part of the above will help you.

Note: both formulas are Array Formulas; enter them with Ctrl-Shift-Enter
