# Can I sum or average a range with more than 1 condition?

B

#### BobT

I want to get an average based on multiple criteria
without having to sort the records and identify the range.
Of course I can get to the average if I can get the sum.

I'm aware that I can sum records within a range that meet
a codition outside the range using the SUMIF function
"=SUMIF(Range,criteria,sum range)"

I can also count records that meet multiple criteria using
the SUMPRODUCT function
"=SUMPRODUCT((Range1=Criteria1)*(Range2=Criteria2)*
(Range3=Criteria3)"

I've also seen this array formula to count records that
meet multiple criteria:
{=SUM(IF(Range1=Criteria1,IF(Range2=Criteria2,IF
(Range3=Criteria3,1,0)))
But the SUMPRODUCT formula is easier to work with.

However, I have not found or figured out a sum formula for
multple criteria. Any help out there?
THanks

BobT,

You could try a formula that does Sumif/Countif and count for the same
criteria that you sum for. For Example
=sumif(A1:A100,"X",C1:C100)/countif(A1:A100,"X")

You're close -- SUMPRODUCT does the job, but you've left off the final
piece:
"=SUMPRODUCT((Range1=Criteria1)*(Range2=Criteria2)*(Range3=Criteria3)*Range4
)

Don't think my solution will work for you.

This does the job, Thanks
