Hi, I am having trouble with getting an average of a column. its a formula based column and since some rows dont meet all the criteria, some rows state INDEX DATA. How do I find the average of the numbers in the column using a formula?

If you only have the criteria of excluding "INDEX DATA", you can use the AVERAGEIF function.
=AVERAGEIF([Average Column]:[Average Column], @cell <> "INDEX DATA", [Average Column]:[Average Column])

Paul thank you for trying to help but that formula didn't work. I provided a screen shot of the column I am trying to average, W/O Time Lapse column.

I am unable to see any screenshots. Could you try reposting it?

figured it out thank you!
