Dates in formula AVERAGEIF


I have problem with the dates in the formula below (in sheet summary)

=AVERAGEIF([Date of request]:[Date of request], >07.01.2019, [Completed in days]:[Completed in days])

The Smartsheet returns me the value 0 that is wrong cause I have lots of numbers that meet this criterion.

Please advise and thanks in advance

    When referencing dates in a formula, you need to use the DATE function.


    =DATE(yyyy, mm, dd)


    =AVERAGEIF([Date of request]:[Date of request], @cell > DATE(2017, 07, 01), [Completed in days]:[Completed in days])

  • Thank you, I appreciate it.
