I am stumped trying to work this out. In column “E” I enter a number a few times a day.
I would like in column “F” to equal what the number of entries are from the proceeding rows in column E. I also want the number of entries to subtotal and I want that subtotals divided by the number of entries. Below is an example of what I need.
At 10:00 am, I enter 102 in E4, I need F4 to show the auto sum value of E column divided by the number of entries in E column from a starting point of my entries (E4), down to the current row being worked, “4 is current”.
At 10:07 am, I enter 115 in E5, I need F5 to show the auto sum value of E column divided by the number of entries in E column from a starting point of my entries (E4), down to the current row being worked, “5 is current”.
At 10:12 am, I enter 96 in E6, I need F6 to show the auto sum value of E column divided by the number of entries in E column from a starting point of my entries (E4), down to the current row being worked, “6 is current”.
The number of my entries in column E vary from day to day with some rows not having an entry in the E column. I would like the formula to skip rows with no entry in the E column. I thank you so very much in advance for your help

5 2/28/1998 10:07am 40 115 =E4+E5/2 or 108.5
6 2/28/1998 10:12am 36 96 =E4+E5+E6/3 or 104.3
7 2/28/1998 10:30am 47 130 =E4+E5+E6+E7/4 or 110.7
8 2/28/1998 1:15pm 41 105 =E4+E5+E6+E7+E8/5 or 109.6
9 3/2/1998 9:15am 43 SKIP. No entry was made in E9
10 3/2/1998 9:45am 40 108 =E4+E5+E6+E7+E8+E10/6 or 109.3
11 3/2/1998 10:30am 39 99 =E4+E5+E6+E7+E8+E10+E11/7 or 107.8
This formula can help you =LEN(A1)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(A1,0,""),1,""),2,""),3,""),4,""),5,""),6,""),7,""),8,""),9,"")).
