Find a Value

Hi I have a cell that has three values in it, separated by comma (ex. 36, 36.5, 37)  I need to get the average of all three values then if cell d1 is = to "M" use  If <35, 15, if 35-37, 20, if 37-40, 25, if 40-45, 30, if 45-50, 35, else 45. if cell d1= "F" use  If <35, 11, if 35-37, 12, if 37-40, 13, if 40-45, 14, if 45-50, 15, else 20.

Hi Macone,

Your question is not very clear. Can you kindly elaborate what is that you are trying to achieve so that a formula according to the same can be created.

Regards,
Vipin

Sorry so on sheet 1, user will enter in cell d1 either "M" or "F" and in cell c1 the user enters three values separated by a commaa (example: 35, 36, 38).  If d1=M then take the average of the three values in c1 and obtain a score based on this criteria If <35, 15, if 35-37, 20, if 37-40, 25, if 40-45, 30, if 45-50, 35, else 45.  if d1=F then take the average of the three values in c1 and obtain a score based on this criteria  if cell d1= "F" use  If <35, 11, if 35-37, 12, if 37-40, 13, if 40-45, 14, if 45-50, 15, else 20.

Your ranges overlap. For example if D1 where "M" what score would 40 get, 25 or 30?

Sorry, If <35, 15, if 35-37, 20, if >37-40, 25, if >40-45, 30, if >45-50, 35, else 45.

If a macro is acceptable then

Sub Score()
Dim strParts() As String
Dim curAvg As Currency
Dim intScore As Integer

If UCase(Range("D1")) = "M" Or UCase(Range("D1")) = "F" Then
    strParts = Split(Range("C1"), ",")
    curAvg = (Val(strParts(0)) + Val(strParts(1)) + Val(strParts(2))) / 3
    Select Case curAvg
        Case Is < 35
            If UCase(Range("D1")) = "M" Then
                intScore = 15
            Else
                intScore = 11
            End If
        Case 35 To 37
            If UCase(Range("D1")) = "M" Then
                intScore = 20
            Else
                intScore = 12
            End If
        Case 37.01 To 40
            If UCase(Range("D1")) = "M" Then
                intScore = 25
            Else
                intScore = 13
            End If
        Case 40.01 To 45
            If UCase(Range("D1")) = "M" Then
                intScore = 30
            Else
                intScore = 14
            End If
        Case 45.01 To 50
            If UCase(Range("D1")) = "M" Then
                intScore = 35
             Else
                intScore = 15
            End If
       Case Else
            If UCase(Range("D1")) = "M" Then
                intScore = 45
            Else
                intScore = 20
            End If
    End Select
    MsgBox "Score is " & intScore
End If

The above could be triggered automatically by a change in D1.

Thanks Martin, is there anyway to do this without a macro, the reason is I may have more than one cell to evaluate, it was be easier to copy an paste a formula down the rows.

macone1976Author Commented:
To make it easier I made cell C1 just one value, instead of getting an average of 3 values.

Martin LissOlder than dirtCommented:
Still using 3 values I changed it into a user defined function that you can use just like a regular formula.

Usage:
=score(C1,D1)

Function Score(C As Variant, D As Variant)
Dim strParts() As String
Dim curAvg As Currency
Dim intScore As Integer

If UCase(D) = "M" Or UCase(D) = "F" Then
    strParts = Split(C, ",")
    curAvg = (Val(strParts(0)) + Val(strParts(1)) + Val(strParts(2))) / 3
    Select Case curAvg
        Case Is < 35
            If UCase(D) = "M" Then
                intScore = 15
            Else
                intScore = 11
            End If
        Case 35 To 37
            If UCase(D) = "M" Then
                intScore = 20
            Else
                intScore = 12
            End If
        Case 37.01 To 40
            If UCase(D) = "M" Then
                intScore = 25
            Else
                intScore = 13
            End If
        Case 40.01 To 45
            If UCase(D) = "M" Then
                intScore = 30
            Else
                intScore = 14
            End If
        Case 45.01 To 50
            If UCase(D) = "M" Then
                intScore = 35
             Else
                intScore = 15
            End If
       Case Else
            If UCase(D) = "M" Then
                intScore = 45
            Else
                intScore = 20
            End If
    End Select
    Score = intScore
End If
End Function

My apologies if you already know how to add this UDF but just in case...

In Excel, Press Alt+F11 to open Visual Basic Editor (VBE)

Right-click on your workbook name in the "Project-VBAProject" pane (at the top left corner of the editor window) and select Insert -> Module from the context menu

Copy the code (you can use the ‘Select All’ button if you like) and paste it into the right-hand pane of the VBA editor ("Module1" window)

Press Alt+F11 again to go back to Excel

Glenn RayExcel VBA DeveloperCommented:
You can do it without a macro, but a UDF is certainly a good solution.

For example, just to calculate the average value of the three, comma-separated numbers in cell C1 is:
=AVERAGE(VALUE(LEFT(C1,FIND(",",C1)-1)),VALUE(MID(C1,FIND(",",C1)+1,FIND(",",C1,FIND(",",C1)+1)-FIND(",",C1)-1)),VALUE(MID(C1,FIND(",",C1,FIND(",",C1)+1)+1,5)))

and that still doesn't include the functions necessary to select the respective M- or F-score.   If, for example, you had the result above in cell E1, then the score could be:

F1:  =INDEX(IF(D1="M",{15,20,25,30,35,45},{11,12,13,14,15,20}),MATCH(E1,{0,35,37,40,45,50},1))

See the attached example workbook.

Martin,

Thank you for the help  I had a question on this part

strParts = Split(C, ",")
    curAvg = (Val(strParts(0)) + Val(strParts(1)) + Val(strParts(2))) / 3

The average is now in cell "I", so I no longer need this part, to split it, so how do i modify this section to just use the value in I

Martin LissOlder than dirtCommented:
So you now have just one value in column C?

macone1976Author Commented:
Martin,

Thanks I figured out how to change it for just one column.  I really appreciate the help on this issue.

Glenn RayExcel VBA DeveloperCommented:
How is the average being generated in column I?  Are you using the formula I suggested?  I am curious as to what formula or change you made to your application in order to get the average value now.

If so, you could use a modified version of my second formula to produce the score:

=INDEX(IF(D1="M",{15,20,25,30,35,45},{11,12,13,14,15,20}),MATCH(I1,{0,35,37,40,45,50},1))

You'd change D1 and I1 to the appropriate row.
