# Average cells based on column header

A

#### Annabelle

I have a long spreadsheet (columns A - HB). In column A5, I want to
average all of the entries on this row where the SCORE column is
higher than 0.00.

Example:
Ave-to-Date = A5

SCORE = F5, J5, N5, R5, ...HB5

The SCORE cells contain a formula [=SUM(C5-D5-E5)/((40*1-E5)*0.9)], so
they all read as "0.00" until that week's entry has been made. I only
want to average the cells that contain data, thus the >0.00 note.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

In XL2007 you can use the AVERAGEIFS() function as follows:

In cell A5:
=AVERAGEIFS(F5:HB5,F1:HB1,"SCORE",F5:HB5,">0")

**Assumes each 'SCORE' column is labeled "SCORE" in Row1.

Thank you, Garry. However, I'm still on 2003 (Fortune 50 company I
work for is a bit slow on office technology). Is there another
function that might work for my older Excel version?

Do you want a VBA custom function OR looking to go with built-in
functions? Note that the latter will require use of multiple functions.

Custom functions are fine.

Here's a quick-n-dirty function that accepts 6 different operators for
specifying criteria. (watch out for word wrap)

Public Function Average_2Ifs(RangeToAvg As Range, _
Criteria1Range As Range, Criteria1 As Variant, _
Criteria2Range As Range, Criteria2 As Variant) As
Double
' Returns the average of a range of values based on 2 specified
criteria.
' Criteria can be the same range or different ranges.

Dim sz As String, c As Range
Dim dValues As Double, iCount As Integer
Dim v1 As Variant, v2 As Variant

'Check combined operators first
If InStr(1, Criteria2, "<=", vbTextCompare) > 0 Then sz = "<=": GoTo
GotIt
If InStr(1, Criteria2, ">=", vbTextCompare) > 0 Then sz = ">=": GoTo
GotIt
If InStr(1, Criteria2, "<>", vbTextCompare) > 0 Then sz = "<>": GoTo
GotIt
'If we got here then single operator used
If InStr(1, Criteria2, "<", vbTextCompare) > 0 Then sz = "<": GoTo
GotIt
If InStr(1, Criteria2, ">", vbTextCompare) > 0 Then sz = ">": GoTo
GotIt
If InStr(1, Criteria2, "=", vbTextCompare) > 0 Then sz = "=": GoTo
GotIt

GotIt:
v2 = CDbl(Mid(Criteria2, Len(sz) + 1))
For Each c In Criteria1Range
If c.Value = Criteria1 Then
v1 = Cells(Criteria2Range.Row, c.Column).Value
Select Case sz
'Check combined operators first
Case "<=": If v1 <= v2 Then dValues = dValues + v1: iCount =
iCount + 1
Case ">=": If v1 >= v2 Then dValues = dValues + v1: iCount =
iCount + 1
Case "<>": If v1 <> v2 Then dValues = dValues + v1: iCount =
iCount + 1
'If we got here then single operator used
Case "<": If v1 < v2 Then dValues = dValues + v1: iCount =
iCount + 1
Case ">": If v1 > v2 Then dValues = dValues + v1: iCount =
iCount + 1
Case "=": If v1 = v2 Then dValues = dValues + v1: iCount =
iCount + 1
End Select
End If
Next
Average_2Ifs = (dValues / iCount)
End Function 'Average_2Ifs()

Example usage:
Formula to put in the target cell:

=average_2ifs(\$F\$5:\$HB\$5,\$F\$1:\$HB\$1,"SCORE",\$F\$5:\$HB\$5,">0")

**Assumes each 'SCORE' column is labeled "SCORE" in Row1.

I'm also working on a worksheet formula solution which I'll post later.

Thank you, Garry. I'll give this a try.
