Excel Formula battles

Kristine,

    Attached are 2 snapshots from an excel summary I am working on where the Summary page is looking at the Data page to determine line item selections and final outputs.  In the case of the summary, I am looking at a number of variables in the data (green background / data pg) to determine whether I should include the data from the column titled Order Change (last on right / data pg).  Once I have determined which are to be used, they are added to create a report summary.  

   With this, I have encountered two significant problems.
 1) Of highest priority:  Once I have identified the line items from Order Change column that I want, I am looking to statistically evaluate via the Standard Deviation for those items.  I tried evaluating the various STDEV tools, and found no workable answer.  

2)  For the second problem encountered, you’ll see on the Summary page, I have an Input Filter Level identified near the top of the pg where the input is set at $0.  I am currently evaluating a number of SUMIFS and COUNTIFS scenarios in my summary and these currently include reference to this $0 input.  Since this input is actually a variable that I’d like to change and evaluate, the current method of ‘hard coding $0’ into an equation requires very manual adjustment for each equation using the reference input.  I tried to incorporate a cell reference (like $D$2) to the location of the $0 input, but the xxxIFS equations seemed to fail no matter which format I tried.  Any help to automate this variable input into SUMIFS and COUNTIFS scenarios, is greatly appreciated.

Lets start with this one
1) Of highest priority:  Trying to get standard deviation off column AK of attached
that meet the criteria
…as example…

1)      If a Part  (P)  ….vs. a Sheet.
2)      If Customer is “1 – High” (Priority)
3)      If Eval (Column AH) is Yes…

Unhide the filtered column and remove the filter.

Create a helper column with the formula (assuming I have guessed the correct columns, since your description is not very precise, for e.g. Eval seems to be in column AI, not AH as you wrote)

=IF(AND(AE6="S",AF6="1 - High",AI6="Y"),AK6,"")

copy down to the last row of the unfiltered table. Then you can use STDEV.S  (Excel 2010) or STDEV (2007 and earlier) like this:

=STDEV.S(AL:AL)
