If I have 4 values like<br /><br />Marks obtained Total Marks<br />8 10<br />15 20<br />12 15<br />18 30<br /><br />My question is:<br /><br />First find the best three marks (as the total marks of each assignment (i,e out of marks like 10, 20, 15, 30) are different and obviously the % of each assignment would decide which are best three to choose)<br /><br />Then those three marks have to sum together (based on the three largest % marks) and then get the final % of the sum out of total marks (corresponding)?<br /><br />BACKGROUND:<br /><br />As students gave me the assignments 4 and all assignments have different total marks (i,e out of marks like 10, 20, 15, 30). Now I want first to select the best three assignment marks (which is just possible by calculating their % of each as total marks are different). Then sum those three marks and then get the % of them by using the corresponding total marks of each of them.<br /><br />Your kind reply would highly be acknowledged.<br />Best regards<br />RazaDr. Mirzahttps://www.blogger.com/profile/14254681900776050338noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2509167754737584590.post-2284433178461413172014-06-30T11:24:19.514+05:302014-06-30T11:24:19.514+05:30Thanks Yogesh.

How ever if your data has less then 5 numbers you can use sum instead of sumproduct as above. This can be handled using if function.<br /><br />I would have deployed following formula in situation like yours<br /><br />=IF(COUNT(E9:N9)<5,SUM(E9:N9),(SUMPRODUCT(LARGE(E9:N9,ROW(1:5)))))<br /><br />I hope this helps, let me know in case you need further help<br />RegardsYogesh Guptahttps://www.blogger.com/profile/08246342663404873564noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2509167754737584590.post-1914062024310046922010-04-30T07:13:02.925+05:302010-04-30T07:13:02.925+05:30What if all the cells in your data range don't...What if all the cells in your data range don't have data yet? is there a way to only total the ones that are there up to a certain number? I tried using something like =SUMPRODUCT(LARGE(E9:N9,ROW(INDIRECT("1:B2"))))<br />where B2 is a cell containing =COUNTIF(E9:N9,">0") to count how many data points exist at this point.SmprFidelshttps://www.blogger.com/profile/14098426782190303802noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2509167754737584590.post-43272262982256646032010-02-13T08:14:19.853+05:302010-02-13T08:14:19.853+05:30Hello kemas

The problem with the CSE formulas is exactly the same as you made mistake while writing this comment. In case user does not enter it with Ctrl+Shift+Enter it does not work.<br /><br />Problem gets compounded when some one using your worksheet tries to modify your CSE formula. If that user is not aware of CSE formulas, he will never figure out why the formula stoped working.<br /><br />Just write Sumproduct(Your CSE formula) all these issues disappear<br /><br />ThanksYogesh Guptahttps://www.blogger.com/profile/08246342663404873564noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2509167754737584590.post-32173166928539817742010-02-13T01:24:39.061+05:302010-02-13T01:24:39.061+05:30sorry!
