Does this mean that you add 5 new lines each day. Do you add the
date/time and the temperature 5 times a day. Do you ad 1 line each
day with 5 temperatures in each line that are added during the day.
Are the times consistent real times or do you just call them time1
...time5. (breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner)

I need to make a Calc table. Table is "structured" vertically.
Tables sums number values from columns in the last row of table.
Every column stands for itself, and has nothing to do with other
columns. But values are entered in column by different variables.
I have set different cell background color for every variable. Is
there a way to tell Calc to sum, divide or multiply values by the
cell style color?
Not that I know of. But there is an easier way. I'm guessing that
you have set the background colours manually. Instead of doing
that, why not create another column to indicate the condition (I'm
not sure what you mean by "entered ... by different variables")?
You can then use the values in the new column to control the
SUMIF() to form your selective sums. But you can also use the
values in the new column in "conditional formatting" to set the
background colours of the cells in the first place. This is a much
more reliable technique.
Lets say I am collecting wether temperature (but Im not) values and
Im doing it five time a day.
I have hard time explaining such complicated thing in english and
seems the wehter thing is a bad exemple. Tom uploaded file I sent him
enteries are changeble - I enter one line (cell in collumn) per day.
But if the value is higher then the year average and smaller then
month average I put it green, if the value is lower then the year
average and higher the month average I put in red, if the value is
equal to year average and month average I put it blue. Now, if cell is
colord red, I devide it by 2. If the cell is blue i multiply that
value (in blue) with 1.5, and if green I do plus operation (x(blue) +
y). There is no sorting in table, green cells are not on top, and blue
ones are not at the bottom. If cell is (from exemple) colord green it
still can be higher or lower then one in blue, so sumif _can_ do it
The problem is that in my case there is now juist "year" and "month"
plus permutations with "lower" and "higher", its match more complex
than that. Coloring the cell background and posibillity do
manipulating data based on that would make job lot more easyer.
Lets say that every time (of five) I need to know is that (enterd)
value above or bellow the average for this time a day, month and year.
So is the idea of the background colour is to show if that (enterd)
value above or bellow the average for this time a day, month and
year. This is 1 condition or 3 conditions
If below from average of this time a the day, month and year - color
x. If above from average of this time a the day, month and year -
color y. If below of this time a day but higher of average of month
and higher of average of the year - color z. If below of this time a
day but higher of average of month and _this time_ lower than the
average of the year - color a....
Hope this helps.
(above the average for this time of day AND above the average for
this time of month AND above the average for this time of year)=Y
(below the average for this time of day AND below the average for
this time of month AND below the average for this time of year)=N
(above the average for this time of day)Y/N
(above the average for this time of month )Y/N
(above the average for this time of year)Y/N
In that case I would have three type of (I call them) values which
can not be predicted and thus i doubt I can set a secend - or the
secend one would be bigger and far more complex that the primary one.
Is that summing from the 5 values for that day or summing all the
Now, imagine you need sum only the values (temperature) that is
above average for this time of the year and belove average of that
Its summing values colored with color x in cell A1, summing values
colored with color y in cell A2 ... and finaly summing all together in
B1 (color x + color y + color z...)
What is above the average of the year is not nessery below the
average of the month and vice verse. So I must say that I am now
shure if sumif can handle that. I do not need sum numbers higher or
lower from x, I need sum number collected from the real world and
those are quite rondom.
If you wish, the extra columns can be hidden or displaced to
another part of the sheet or even to another sheet, so they do not
need to be immediately visible or to print along with the values
you do need to see. It may not even be necessary to create new
columns, if the conditions they need to contain could be derived
directly from whatever is their source.
I trust this helps.
It helps, thank you. This sure is the way to go but it can get quite
complicated with time.
From the example on nabble I can see what you are doing but not how it
relates to your example above. There are 3 columns and not 5, is this 3
times a day. There is no date or time, is it to be assumed that all data
in column A is at the same time and each line is a new day.
