Hi,

for in Excel 2007 works AVERAGEIFS as Bill said. If you are using Excel 2003, you may try array formula like this: =AVERAGE(IF((C2:C1000="Kevin Ryan")*(K2:K1000="")*(H2:H1000="Criteria_1")*(H2:H1000="Criteria_2"),B2:B1000)). Write this and press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER. Nice example is here: http://excel-example.com/other-tutorial/average-with-multiple-conditions

{=AVERAGE(IF(C2:C1000="Kevin Ryan",IF(K2:K1000="",IF(((H2:H1000="Criteria_1")+(H2:H1000="Criteria_2")),B2:B1000)))))}
