Okay.. the final question
Excelchat Expert 28/08/2018 - 07:03
For example we take Monday

Do you want to see the total amount of preps for Monday?

the average total amount of preps for all mondays in this sheet
Excelchat Expert 28/08/2018 - 07:04
What do you mean the average? You mean that we need to take all preps for Mondays and then divide by all Mondays?

I add a helper column which shows only unique days of weeks for each date, which allowed us to get the total number of each day
Excelchat Expert 28/08/2018 - 07:30
Then we just divide the total entries per Monday, for example, and divide on the total number of Mondays. In this way we get the average results for each day
Excelchat Expert 28/08/2018 - 07:31
Once you open the file, please force update all the calculations
Excelchat Expert 28/08/2018 - 07:31
So that your days of week would be shown on English
User 28/08/2018 - 07:31
