AVERAGEIF Formula Help
I'm trying to come up with a summary sheet formula that summarizes an employee's average evaluation score. I'm working with two columns: Employee Name and Overall Satisfaction.
Let's say their name is Slim Jones. The formula I came up with is:
=AVERAGEIF(Employee Name:Employee Name, "Slim Jones", [Overall Satisfaction]:[Overall Satisfaction])
But I keep getting the message UNPARESABLE. What am I doing wrong? It seems pretty straightforward.
Best Answer

When a column name has spaces, numbers, and/or special characters, you need to use square brackets around them in a formula.
Try wrapping each [Employee Name] column reference in square brackets the same way you wrapped the [Overall Satisfaction] column names in square brackets.

That worked! I figured it was something simple that I was missing. Thank you so much, that's tremendously helpful!
