Hello! Would appreciate any help...have searched the previous posts without luck...
Am using Excel XP

Q1: i want to filter out duplicate cases in a specific column where constant data e.g. 'age' is unchanged for a particular case. I have tried C&P to a separate doc, advanced filtering showing 'unique records only' however when i run Means and STDEV on the lists it seems its using all of the data, not the filtered list.
e.g.
ID Age INR blood result
2 83 2.4
2 83 2.9
2 83 1.9
2 83 5
3 70 3.8
3 70 4
3 70 8
3 70 3
__Mean/STDEV required for 'age' between these 2 patients not repeated for the 8 results.

Q2.
Is there anyway of separately analysing data split up by another variable. so in the above i'd like to know what is the CV/mean etc for ID 1, 2, 3 etc.

Its taking me ages to do the analyses individually!

Cheers in advance, Jim

Did you know Excel offers Filter by Selection?
Add the AutoFilter icon to the Quick Access Toolbar. Select a cell containing Apple, click AutoFilter, and you will get all rows with Apple

Add a column that shows a value on MIN(ROW(criteria)), filter on that column
