    calculate a average based on multiple criteria

    Currently I can get my athletes average of ALL their results over multiple years and by setting 1 criteria to determine the particular event I want the average of. What I am trying to do is further break it down to filter it fore each year.

    for example for events I have - GS, Slalom, DH

    I am currently using this formula to filter them to just count their GS results. =AVERAGEIF(E36:E300,"=GS*",G36:G300)

    FYI Column E36:E300 is where the events are listed and G36:300 is where the actual results are entered

    So what I need to do is add a further filter that will only include the chosen year - 2006 (FYI the year column is A36:A300)


    Any help with this would be very much appreciated as it is driving me crazy!!!!

    thanks
    Chris

    Step up from the AVERAGEIF() to the AVERAGEIFS() function: https://support.office.com/en-us/art...8-f7c5c3001690

    Re: calculate a average based on multiple criteria

    What exactly is this criteria supposed to mean:

    "=GS*"

    Is the asterisk being used as a wildcard?
