    AVERAGEIFS alternative

    Hi,

    I'm using AVERAGEIFS to count specific data from a sheet using 3 criterea, however I also need to extract the actual data into another calculation, so instead of returning the average I want it to return the list of corisponding data against 3 selection criterea.

    ie: I have a list of members who take part in diferent activities which get a score. I want to be able to lookup the member name with a specific activity and then extract the top 10 scores from their total list of scores.

    So A1=surname;B1=forname;C1=activity type;D1=score

    Everytime a member attends they get an entry for that day, the list has multiple member name entries.

    I can obviously achieve the result by filtering then applying a calculation to the filtered result but I need it to be automated because there are a hell of alot of members.

    Any suggestion would be welcomed.

    Thanks Shaun

    Re: AVERAGEIFS alternative

    =Large(IF(A1:A10="Name",D1:D10),1)

    confirmed with CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER not just ENTER extracts the Largest score for the name identified...

    =Large(IF(A1:A10="Name",D1:D10),2) confirmed with CSE keys gets 2nd largest... etc.
    Where there is a will there are many ways.

    OK, so presumably I can nest multiple IF statements because I need to select on surname;forname and acivity

    Yes:

    e.g

    =LARGE(IF(A1:A10="Surname",IF(B1:B10="Forename",IF(C1:C10="Activity",D1:D10))),1)

    confirmed with CSE keys

    Re: AVERAGEIFS alternative (SOLVED)

    EXCELLENT, Just adjusted it for my main sheet and it works perfectly, sometimes you just miss or blank on the formula.

    Thanks for your help. Shaun
