    Using Filter with the function Average

    I have a sheet with over 20 000 rows and 20+ columns. I have several values in column "P" that I want to filter to find Average value from column "I". I have the headers in row 2 and the function in row 1. When I use =average(I3:I20000) in cell "I1" I'm not getting the filtered visible values. I need to get the average of the filtered values in column "I". Is there a way to do this?

    Thanks

    You can use SUBTOTAL to average only the visible values after filtering, i.e.

    =SUBTOTAL(1,I3:I20000)

    Thanks, yes it works but I need to activate the cell and press enter for it to update! Is there a solution for refresh the cell to show the new values after you made a new filter selection?

    It updates OK when I try it. Do you have calculation set to manual? Change to automatic with

    Tools > Options > Calculation
