Filter help

Postby danonina » Sat Aug 11, 2018 12:21 pm


Im trying to find a way in my statistics sheet can filter home and away games. If its a home or a away game is mentioned in the D column. Is there any way to filter it so the calculations in H13-H28 only calculate based on the filter?

Could you please explain more clearly exactly what you what to do.

Say something like "If D3 is Borla then ...; but if D3 is Hemma then ..." It would also help if you uploaded a small example file.

You will find much useful information in the Calc Guide, the Calc Tutorials and Calc Help. When a popup window opens, click Help for help on that window.

If you want to actually filter column D, using Data -> Filter, take a look at the SUBTOAL() function. If you want to have cells permanently displaying values for separate labels in column D, look at the SUMIF() and AVERAGEIF() functions. AVERAGEIF does not appear in the Help but it is available. I agree with John_Ha that an example file would help a lot.
