    Averageif Multiple Criteria

    I'm looking for a formula that will change which cells it averages based upon another cell's data.

    For example:

    In tab "Match-Up1" you'll see the formulas in P3:AJ4. They are dependent on the data in A3:B4. This formula returns the average data for Auburn's games in which they played an SEC opponent. I'd like a formula that will return the results listed in "Match-Up2" if I delete the data in B3 "SEC". That would return the average data for ALL of Auburn's games.

    Thank you.

    perhaps simplest to just treat B as a partial match by appending an * to the criteria value, thus when blank it will find all rows (with text value in I, no numbers stored in this column)

    Formula: copy to clipboard

    the above will replicate your matchup2 results when SEC is removed.

    Re: Averageif Multiple Criteria

    That's amazing, Xlent! I don't know if you can teach me how you did that, but if you can that'd be amazing. If not would you be willing to help me accomplish one more thing?

    1) Expand the formula to include the variables for C3:H4?
    Match-Up1 column C is looking for a value >7 in "Florida/Auburn" column S. Variables are "Yes" and "No".
    Match-Up1 column D is looking for a value >0 in "Florida/Auburn" column T. Variables are "Yes" and "No".
    Match-Up1 column E is looking for the value "11:00am" to "6:59pm" (Day) or "7:00pm" to "11:59pm" (Night) in "Florida/Auburn" column D. Variables are "Day" and "Night".
    Match-Up1 column F is looking for the value "Sun", "Mon", "Tue", "Wed", "Thu", "Fri", "Sat" in "Florida/Auburn" column E. Variables are "Sun", "Mon", "Tue", "Wed", "Thu", "Fri", "Sat".
    Match-Up1 column G is looking for the value "Yes" or "No" in "Florida/Auburn" column R. Variables are "Yes" and "No".
    Match-Up1 column H is looking for the value " " (blank space), "@", and "N" in "Florida/Auburn" column G. Variables are " " (blank space), "@" and "N".

    Re: Averageif Multiple Criteria

    You can switch to AVERAGEIFS, i.e. existing (single condition) formula would change such that the average range is now listed first.

    The below accommodates your various criterion and, with exception of Venue, will handle blank criterion as "all".

    Notes:

    For "Venue" I would suggest doing following: leave criteria blank, rather than space, to handle "home" -- for "all" enter * in criteria (rather than blank [=home])
    rationale: 'home' fixtures on college tabs are blanks as opposed to spaces.

    To negate need for double test on 'days between games' enter 0 in S3 on each college tab
    rationale: to handle "all" devoid of these 0s you would effectively need to test both text & numbers (double the testing)

    Re: Averageif Multiple Criteria

    Wow, Xlent! This is all very interesting. Thanks a million. Oh, I forgot something.... two FINAL questions!

    1) How can I extend the formula to include cells M3:N4? The exact same principle as P3:AJ4, average the value of column K and L in the team tabs to correspond to the variables in A3:H4?

    2) How can I change the formula to make it a countif formula for cells J3:L4?

    J3 & J4 in "Match-Up", given the variables in A3:H3 & A4:H4 respectively, count the number of times that the criteria in A3:H3 and A4:H4 is met.
    K3 & K4 in "Match-Up", given the variables in A3:H3 & A4:H4 respectively, count the number of times "W" appears in column J when the criteria in A3:H3 and A4:H4 is met.
    L3 & L4 in "Match-Up" give the the variables in A3:H3 & A4:H4 respectively, count the number of times "L" appears in the column J when the criteria in A3:H3 and A4:H4 is met.

    I wish I could reverse engineer what you did but I'm having trouble doing that.

    Re: Averageif Multiple Criteria

    refer attached but, in short, use COUNTIFS rather than AVERAGEIFS for your P/W/L.

    note: given additional AVERAGEIFS requirement, and position on college tabs, I have added an index # header {row1} to replace the 25+COLUMNS for use re: R1C1
    (you could determine these values systematically, however given a one-off (and duplicate headers) it's as easy to add as constant values)

    IMO, techonthenet is a good reference for familiarising yourself with the various functions XL has to offer - like COUNTIFS, AVERAGEIFS etc

    Re: Averageif Multiple Criteria

    XLent, that's awesome, but when I change a value in A3:H4 in order for the values in J3:AJ4 to change I have to click on the cell and click on the formula text. I have to do that for every single cell each time I change the variable. Is there a way around this?

    Nevermind, I changed it from manual to automatic.
