sorry was slow

Excelchat Expert
14/07/2018 - 08:27

I see, no worries

User
14/07/2018 - 08:28

so for the players with pos G they don't play 82 games but the players who are other might

User
14/07/2018 - 08:28

so how i can make the expected column multiple by 82 but only for players not position g who other should be multiplied by games played

User
14/07/2018 - 08:28

fan its average by 82

User
14/07/2018 - 08:29

fantasy points average by 82 but only for people who don't play g or is it possible?

Excelchat Expert
14/07/2018 - 08:30

Ok can you specify the columns you were referring to? It it column E (GP)?

User
14/07/2018 - 08:31

column E is GP, column C is position, column r is fantasy points average

Excelchat Expert
14/07/2018 - 08:32

Can you clarify what output you want to get in column U expected? what criteria you want to consider, please specify the column name or exact header name

User
14/07/2018 - 08:34

i want column R* 82 but if column C has position g, i want to multiply by column E instead

Excelchat Expert
14/07/2018 - 08:34

Alright, please give a moment to solve your problem. Thank you!

User
14/07/2018 - 08:34

thanks

User
14/07/2018 - 08:35

also sorry if column e has less than 20 gp in column e to exclude if possible but i can figure that out later i guess

Excelchat Expert
14/07/2018 - 08:37

Ok so if column E (GP) has less than 20 gp, and column C (position) is G, then leave it as blank?

User
14/07/2018 - 08:37

sure

Excelchat Expert
14/07/2018 - 08:37

Ok got it

User
14/07/2018 - 08:37

thanks

User
14/07/2018 - 08:40

is that the formula?

Excelchat Expert
14/07/2018 - 08:40

Still fixing it

Excelchat Expert
14/07/2018 - 08:42

Here's the formula you need:

Excelchat Expert
14/07/2018 - 08:42

=if(C2<>"G",R2*82,if(and(C2="G",E2>20),E2*82,""))

Excelchat Expert
14/07/2018 - 08:44

Sorry this should be the updated formula

Excelchat Expert
14/07/2018 - 08:45

=if(C986<>"G",R986*82,if(and(C986="G",E986>=20),E986*82,""))

User
14/07/2018 - 08:46

the goalie total are to high? are they being multiplied by 82?

Excelchat Expert
14/07/2018 - 08:46

It reads: If Position is not equal to G, then FANPTS/GM x82, if Position is G and greater than or equal to 20, then GP (Column E) X82, else leave blank

Excelchat Expert
14/07/2018 - 08:46

Do you have any questions/clarifications regarding the solution provided?

User
14/07/2018 - 08:47

oh okay can i not multiple by e by 82 but R by column E?

User
14/07/2018 - 08:47

not by 82

User
14/07/2018 - 08:47

for if g in column c

Excelchat Expert
14/07/2018 - 08:47

ok

Excelchat Expert
14/07/2018 - 08:48

That would be R*E correct?

User
14/07/2018 - 08:48

ya instead of e by 82 do r by E

User
14/07/2018 - 08:49

for g in column c

Excelchat Expert
14/07/2018 - 08:49

=if(C2<>"G",R2*82,if(and(C2="G",E2>=20),R2*E2,""))

User
14/07/2018 - 08:49

yeah that looks better

Excelchat Expert
14/07/2018 - 08:49

Is there anything else that I can assist you with regarding this issue?

User
14/07/2018 - 08:51

is there anyway to column u and rank it based on column C?

User
14/07/2018 - 08:51

so like by position ?

User
14/07/2018 - 08:52

we could do that in separate colum

Excelchat Expert
14/07/2018 - 08:53

You mean rank column U based on position?

Excelchat Expert
14/07/2018 - 08:53

We already incorporated column U on the formula, so I think we can rank just column U

User
14/07/2018 - 08:55

what if you take column u and rank based on everyone who plays same position in column c

Excelchat Expert
14/07/2018 - 08:56

Yes we can do that, just rank everyone who plays C?

Excelchat Expert
14/07/2018 - 08:56

Hmm, wait

User
14/07/2018 - 08:56

rank by everyone who has same position in column c

User
14/07/2018 - 08:57

so like if the best g among g and the best RW of RW's

User
14/07/2018 - 08:57

or would that take operate columns

User
14/07/2018 - 08:57

separate*

Excelchat Expert
14/07/2018 - 08:58

I'll check if we can do that since RANK is an array formula

User
14/07/2018 - 08:59

maybe like rank for out of G in one column and if do not rank and same for other postions

User
14/07/2018 - 08:59

and then just readjust for other columns,

User
14/07/2018 - 08:59

and other positions

Excelchat Expert
14/07/2018 - 09:00

Yes we can do that but let's try if excel would allow it, since RANK has to be in a continuous array

User
14/07/2018 - 09:01

okay

User
14/07/2018 - 09:05

uhm is there way so they don't need to be specifically c/rw but if they qualify for C or RW for example they just need to go into those columns

Excelchat Expert
14/07/2018 - 09:06

but you have data with combined like LW/C?

User
14/07/2018 - 09:06

so that won't work because its already combined

User
14/07/2018 - 09:06

makes sense

Excelchat Expert
14/07/2018 - 09:07

Yeah coz we are ranking based on values in column C

Excelchat Expert
14/07/2018 - 09:10

Here's the formula: =--if($C3=V$2,rank($U3,$U:$U))
