# Extracting Values of Constant Number of Rows from Countinuous Data

1. ## Extracting Values of Constant Number of Rows from Countinuous Data

Hello,

I have lots of data that continuously gathered from an experiment. There are 3 columns that represent strength of a material and there are lots of values of that column which exactly 10200 rows.

• Column 1, is cycle values that ranges from 0.01 to 1 which total of 100 cycles. Every complete cycle (ie. 0.01-1, 1.01-2, 2.01-3 etc.) respresents a complete loop and can be visualized by putting Column 2 and 3 into a graph. There are total of 102 complete cycles.
• Column 2, Materials strength
• Column 3, Deformation

1. I need to find the slope of every single complete cycle but the overwhelming number of continuous data makes this calculation a bit tricky.
2. Also similarly from the slope calculation, I need to find the sum of the Column 3 (ie. Deformation) values from every single complete cycle.
3. Finally, I need to find the area of the inside of each loop, but this is not as important as first two calculations.

At first, I thought that if I extract 102 complete cycles to excel sheets from that continuous data, then I can calculate what I want from them but thinking straightforward like that surely will cost a lot of time.
For the sake of ease of viewing, I added slope and sum calculations from first three complete cycle.

I will be so appreciated if you have any interesing ideas to untangle this mess.

Welcome to the forum.

Members will tailor the solutions they offer to the version (NOT release number) of Office (Excel, NOT Windows) that you have. Please check that your forum profile is up-to-date in this respect. If you aren't sure, in Excel go to File | Account and report what it says below the MS logo at the top of that page. If your version is for Mac, please also state this. Thanks.
