Averaging numbers that meet a defined criteria

I'm creating a metrics sheet to feed a dashboard. On this sheet I am referencing a different sheet with the data. The formula I need to create would do the following:

1) AVERAGE the numerical values in one column.

2) IF the data was collected in a certain month, which is identified in a different column.

So for example, I would like to average all of the October data, November data, December etc.

Any help is appreciated!

    Hi @Amy Clements

    Try something like this. (replace the ranges with your range names)

    =AVERAGEIF({Column With Dates}; MONTH(@cell) = 10; {Column With Numerical Values})

    The same version but with the below changes for convenience.

    =AVERAGEIF({Column With Dates}, MONTH(@cell) = 10, {Column With Numerical Values})

    Depending on your country/region, you'll need to exchange the comma to a period and the semi-colon to a comma.

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
