<P>Hi!</P><P>I have to calculate the average sprint velocity from a table where:</P><P>- Column A = Sprint # (1 through 28 where 28 is at the top)</P><P>- Column B = sprint velocity</P><P> </P><P>So based on the above table, the user will select the number of sprints he/she wants to go back for the average velocity calculation. Say the user selects 6 from the drop-down, then only the last 6 sprints' velocity should be used for the calculation of average velocity (sprints 28,27,26,25,24, and 23).</P><P> </P><P>As I already had this formula working on Google Sheets, I'm trying to convert it into Excel but haven't figured out a way to do so. Apparently, the formula ROW which returns a range can't be used with AVERAGEIF like Google Sheets does...</P><P> </P><P>Google Sheets formula:</P><P>=ARRAYFORMULA(AVERAGEIF(ROW(INDIRECT(Veloc_SPs))-3, <SPAN class=" string ">"<="</SPAN><SPAN class=" default-formula-text-color">&</SPAN><SPAN>F8</SPAN>,INDIRECT(Veloc_SPs))))</P><P> </P><P>Can you please assist based on sample spreadsheet attached?</P><P>Also, please notice that I have a cell with the velocity range from column B defined as a named Range so I can use that name in my formula. </P><P> </P><P>Thank you in advance!</P>Tue, 27 Apr 2021 18:30:26 GMThttps://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/excel/help-with-formula/m-p/2299120#M97846ragomes19722021-04-27T18:30:26ZRe: Help with Formula

Thank you very much, <LI-USER uid="127945" login="Hans Vogelaar"></LI-USER>!<BR />What if my table with Columns A and B is defined as a Table in Excel, how would I reference to "$B$1" instead?<BR />I tried transferring the formula but because I actually have it defined as a table, it's not working. Sorry about that...Tue, 27 Apr 2021 19:14:02 GMThttps://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/excel/help-with-formula/m-p/2299304#M97855ragomes19722021-04-27T19:14:02ZRe: Help with Formula
