In MS EXCEL VBA, I want to dynamically calculate count,sum,avg for a row as its added

In column A I have a list of names.  Columns B,C,D have AVG,SUM,COUNT.  COUNT and SUM get their values from column E,F,G,H and so on. Column B calculates the AVG from SUM and COUNT.   From time to time I add info to the sheet which includes names that already exist in column A and add new names if they don't exist in column A.  I would like to dynamically add the sum,avg,count to B,C,D as the sheet is updated.  I know this can be done with a cell formula but I don't want cells to show #DIV/0! or zeros if there is no information for them.  Can this be done with VBA instead?  here is sample vba:

      For y = 8 To last_cell
                If player_name = Worksheets("Current Year").Cells(y, 1) Then
                     Worksheets("Current Year").Cells(y, 5).Value = position
                  '   what i would like to calculate
                      Worksheets("Current Year").Cells(y, 2).Value = AVG
                      Worksheets("Current Year").Cells(y, 3).Value = SUM
                      Worksheets("Current Year").Cells(y, 4).Value = COUNT of range ' E  "y" '  to  so on

                     player_exists = True
                End If

dear Dmalovich,

it can be done with formula and without error like #DIV/0

cellSUM= =SUM(E1:H1)
cell Count= =COUNTIF(E1:H1;">0")

instead of error

The cell shows #DIV/0 in avg. when the count is 0. I could add an if statement to avoid that error. here is an example.
Sub Test()
Dim Player_total_count As Integer
Dim i As Integer
Dim y As Integer

Player_total_count = Application.WorksheetFunction.CountA(Range("A1:A2000"))
i = 2

For i = 2 To Player_total_count
    y = Application.WorksheetFunction.CountA(Range("E" & i & ":" & "H" & i))
    If y = 0 Then
    Worksheets("Current Year").Cells(i, 3).Value = "=sum(E" & i & ":" & "H" & i & ")"
    Worksheets("Current Year").Cells(i, 4).Value = "=count(E" & i & ":" & "H" & i & ")"
    ElseIf y <> 0 Then
    Worksheets("Current Year").Cells(i, 2).Value = "=average(E" & i & ":" & "H" & i & ")"
    Worksheets("Current Year").Cells(i, 3).Value = "=sum(E" & i & ":" & "H" & i & ")"
    Worksheets("Current Year").Cells(i, 4).Value = "=count(E" & i & ":" & "H" & i & ")"
    End If

Next i
End Sub

Hi there
I have attached a workbook that contains macro code that should provide what you're looking for.
There are sample columns and values provided.
Each row's avg, sum, count are calculated based on the row contents..that is, in one row you can have 6 cols of values, in another - 8, etc

Run the macro calcall.

It worked.  Thanks.....

You can use formulas and avoid the display of #DIV/0 and zeros without resorting to a macro.

In column D, the COUNT column, use

Column D will be blank if all the columns E to Z are empty.

Then columns B and C can use the D column result to avoid the unwanted display.

In Column B, the AVG column, use the formula
=if(and(d1<>"" , d1>0),c1/d1,"")

And in column C, the SUM column
=if(and(d1<>"" , d1>0),sum(e1:z1),"")

Note you must check both d1<>"" and d1>0 for the formula to work.
