In cells I3:I10 I need to create an IF function to calculate the average numerical ratings for each employee. Only managers get evaluated by Leadership rank in column H. Column C indicates whether the employee is a manager. Thus, the average calculation should only include the values in column H if the employee is a manager. Even if a rating is given to a non-manager employee in column H, that number should not be included in the average in column I. How do I make this into a IF function?

There are 4 Tiers in the league, with different points in each one. Every few weeks, there will be a “re-tier”, whereas a few teams on the top of each division will move up, while the bottom 4 will move down – hence the re-tier. The “WED” tab is the one to work on. Goal is to cut and paste from the league website and to have the far right columns populate to show the playoff standings, finding/looking up the team names and sorting them by top rank with points. Please format this as well. If you wanted to make it so the rows align, you can label the tiers in another fashion. Right now the boxes on the right are a bit off in alignment.

I have to use VLOOKUP for my assignment in class, and she gave me no explanation on how to do it (online class) and the book doesn't explain it. I don't know how it works or what to do... All the instructions say are "To determine which clothing lines may sell well online, you decide to rank them on a scale from A to E. In cell H5, using a Vlookup function, determine the product line ranking of each product based on the Yearly Sales. Use the range name assigned to the lookup table. Copy the formula through H16"

Please help with rank excel formula with duplicates. A ranking formula I'm using does not rank a column of figures correctly if there are duplicate values. On the sheet labelled "Movers", column AE30 to AE44 is an example of the problem. The subsequent data being pulled via lookup in columns J30-44 and K30-44 then doesn't display correctly.
