average a range (2002 xp)
Edited by HansV to present data as table
I have data arranged in columns by date, water level, water level as shown below. The dates are in ascending order, but are not consecutive. I need to be able to enter two dates; e.g. 9/20/78 and 10/31/78 and have the formula return the average value for the inclusive range; which in this example would be 54.65 and 62.83. I think I want DAVERAGE?
Thanks.

Re: average a range (2002 xp)
Say that your table is in A1:C16, with the field names in A1:C1 and the data in A2:C16
Enter the start date in cell F1, and the end date in cell F2.
The following array formulas (i.e. confirm with Ctrl+Shift+Enter instead of Enter) will calculate the average of the cells in volumn B whose dates are between the start and end dates:
=AVERAGE(IF((A2:A16>=F1)*(A2:A16<=F2),B2:B16))
=AVERAGE(IF((A2:A16>=F1)*(A2:A16<=F2),C2:C16))
