    Min, Median & Max (Excel 2003)

    Hi Excel Experts,

    I have an excel sheet which has the departments in Column C, Grades in Column C and Salary in Column B.

    I require the Min, Median & Max Salaries Departmentwise and gradewise.

    i.e. under Department A I have various grades for each grades I need the Min, Median & Max.

    I can get the Min & Max using Pivot Table. I also need the Median, can someone help me with a formula for the same.

    Regards
    Baiju

    Once you have the pivot table, you can add a column next to it to calculate the median. The attached version of your workbook uses array formulas with MEDIAN and IF, for example:

    =MEDIAN(IF($D$2:$D$101=G3,$B$2:$B$101))

    where G3 contains a department name. (Array formulas must be confirmed with Ctrl+Shift+Enter)

    Hi Hans,

    Thanks for your formula, it is fine when i have to get the median department wise, however the same will not apply when i have to get the median Gradewise under each department.

    I have redone the Pivot Table to give you a better understanding on what i am looking at.

    You have to make sure that you refer to the correct department, and you have to add the grade to the condition. See attached version.

    Many attachments were lost when the Lounge server crashed last month. Can you attach your workbook again?

    a) How could I have known that?
