    Calculate a weighted average in a single cell based on multiple criteria

    Hey, I was wondering if someone could help me figure this out. I'm trying to calculate a weighted average, but the two arrays need to be formulated after meeting specific criteria.

    In the attached spreadsheet. I want to calculate the weighted average where Class 1 = 1 and Class 2 = 2. This is a simplified version because my list is much longer and has a total of 4 criteria. I'm trying to avoid pivot tables and sorting data. I just want a single formula that can dig into the ranges and spit out the answer.

    Thanks for any help.

    Re: Calculate a weighted average in a single cell based on multiple criteria

    For some reason I could not apply that to my spreadsheet (it works on the simple spreadsheet). I have 5 criteria. I wonder if there is a limit on the # of criteria. I also named all of my ranges. Maybe I should double check that my named ranges are all the same length. Just did that, they all checked out. I can't even calculate the denominator. It gives a #value error. I guess I will try to complicate the basic sheet and see at what point it blows up.....
