Hello all,

 

I have a file with data that is organized by date with 48 entries for each date. I need to find the max and min of the data for each date. 

 

So I started manually copying the data into a separate column for each date.

However, there is 7 months of data. Which is repeated on 4 different sampling points.

 

How do I split a column by either Number Of Entries or by Change In Date?

 

Or is there a way to find max and min in a specified range either by Number Of Entries or by Change In Date?

 

Thanks for your time.

Could you please clarify a bit: in one column you have dates, 48 rows for each date (i.e. totally about 48x7x30 rows), in next column some numbers, correct?

 

You'd like to find only min and max for each date or copy each date with their numbers into separate columns as well (i.e about 2x7x30 more columns)?

yes this is correct information.

 

I would like to find min and max for each date. however that happens is fine with me.

Solution

When the easiest way is to create PivotTable on your data with dates as rows, numbers as values (two times, one for min and one for max)
