AVERAGEIFS(average_range, criteria_range1, criteria1 [,criteria_range2, criteria2])

Returns the arithmetic mean of all the numbers in a range that satisfies multiple conditions.


average_rangeThe actual cells to average.
criteria_range1The range of cells you want evaluated.
criteria1The expression that contains the criteria.
criteria_range2(Optional) The range of cells you want evaluated.
criteria2(Optional) The expression that contains the criteria.

* Added in Excel 2007.
* This function includes hidden rows.
* This function uses the actual cell values and not the displayed formatted values.
* This function can handle full column references ($A:$A) very efficiently because it ignores empty cells.
* All the "criteria_range" ranges must be the same size and shape as "criteria_range1"
* If "average_range" is blank or a text value, then #DIV/0! is returned.
* If "average_range" contains any cells that are not numbers, then #DIV/0! is returned.
* If "criteria" contains any cells that are empty, then they are treated as 0.
* If there are no cells that meet the criteria, then #DIV/0! is returned.
* Arguments that are logical values are excluded.
* Arguments that are text are excluded.
* Arguments that are zero are included.
* If any cells reference are empty, then theses are ??
* You can use wildcard characters (?) and (*).
* Any empty cells are considered equivalent to a 0 value.
* You can have up to 127 different criteria.
* You can use the AVERAGE function if you want to return the arithmetic mean with no conditions.
* You can use the AVERAGEA function if you want to include logical values and text in the denominator.
* You can use the AVERAGEIF function if you want to satisfy one condition.
* This is similar to the COUNTIFS function.
* This is similar to the MAXIFS function.
* This is similar to the MINIFS function.
* This is similar to the SUMIFS function.

1 - What is the average of all the numbers in the range "C1:C5" that have "Barry" in the range "B1:B5",
2 - What is the average of all the numbers in the range "C1:C5" that have "Barry" in the range "B1:B5". Notice that prefixing the condition with an equal sign means the same thing.
3 - What is the average of all the numbers in the range "C1:C5" that have "Simon" in the range "B1:B5".
4 - What is the average of all the numbers in the range "C1:C5" that have "Barry" in the range "B1:B5" and have a value not equal to 20 in the range "C1:C5".
5 - What is the average of all the numbers in the range "C1:C5" that have "Barry" in the range "B1:B5" and have a value equal to 20 in the range "C1:C5".
6 - What is the average of all the numbers in the range "C1:C5" that have "Barry" in the range "B1:B5" and have a value greater than the value in cell "C3" in the range "C1:C5".
6 - include wildcards and date filtering.
