Grouping specific rows together

I have a data set of production values from various machines that I'm using to calculate machine utilization. I used group by to combine the values into machine and date and sum the run hours. Below shows the data. The rows are machine, date, mfg cell, mfg type, run hours, and scheduled hours.

I want to combine 0556-LEGO 2-1 and 2-2 into one value (0556). Is there any way to group these into one column so they don't show up as duplicates in my sums without having to filter one out?

I see. Does this possibly work? I added Column 2, 3, 4, and 6 to the GROUP BY function in order to return them.

Before using Group By, you could try to just replace both variable names with "0556." In "Edit Queries," you can:

1. Select the entirety of that first column

2. Right click, find "Replace Values..."

3. Replace "0556-LEGO 2-1" and "0556-LEGO 2-2" with "0556"

4. THEN use Group By to group the values of "0556" together

Does that work?

Thanks! The problem with that is that when I group them, I sum the run hours so if a press makes two different parts in a day, it'll say it ran for the sum of those two parts.

I see. So you just want an average then?

Yeah an average would work for that press if it can be done separately from grouping the others.

I think that'll do it! Thanks
