Average Help, v. 2.0

```Thanks again for the help on my previous question. Now, using the same
beginning format, I'd like to know how to figure out what the average
for the remaining values needs to be to reach 5.

ex. Starting with 7 different values from A1 thru A7, what would the
values of A8 thru A10 have to be to reach an overall average of 5?

```Hi Matthew!

assuming your values are in A1:A10

=(5*(count(A1:A7)+3)-sum(A1:A7))/3

explaination:

The first Problem is, that you need a specific sum
to get an specific average:

count of all values x 5 = searched sum   (10*5=50)
you have 7 values: 7 x 5 = 35
You search 3 values: 3 x 5 = 15
sum to reach : (7x5)+(3x5)=15+35=50

assuming the sum of your existing 7 values are 32....
50-32=18,
dividing the Rest (18) by 3 (your cells)
18 / 3 = 6  .

Hello. I need an Outlook rule that looks for two phrases in the body of a message. I enter the first phrase to look for and then add the second phrase, it adds it as an OR statement instead of an AND statement. Is it possible to do this? So it looks for "thistext" AND "thistext"??? Second question: Is it possible (in a rule) to look for a phrase using a wildcard like an asterisk? For instance, a rule that looks for "FIRST NAME: M*" in an emailed form??

Form Help 01-18-08
I have a form creating that lists a product code and a product description. When entering data into this form I have people scan a product code. Is there a way to set up a trigger that will notify me if the product code listed on the form originally and the scanned product code do not match? You need to add your own code to the BeforeUpdate event of the control or the form. I haven't worked with scanners so I don't know if scanner input will trigger the BeforeUpdate event of the control so if that doesn't work, use the form level event. You can then cancel the update if ...

Averages
Hello again, I have an interesting situation. I basically inherited an older database that is used to enter dates, usage and charges for accounts. The situation is that we are attempting to do averages filtered by account, and averaged against the number of days that data has been entered. So, for example, we had 7 months of data entered, our query should total the number of days in the seven months (x), then average that with the total usage number (y). This data currently resides in the same table labeled "data" in the form of from and to dates (6/1/1999 to 7/1/1999) and usage (32...
