  6. I am not an active trader on the stock market anymore. Otherwise functions like this one would come in even more handy than now.
    I am going to try this in my bookkeeping. Because doing what one has learned let it sink in all the more.
    Thanks Habib for your explanation! 🙂

  7. This is exactly where I was stuck on my spreadsheet. I am working on making a couple of different budget budget spreadsheets. I wanted to be able to see certain things over time like my groceries budget and average spent each month. Now I can get back to work on it. Thank you

    • This is an amazing news that I have been able to help you budget your groceries on what was spent on average each moth. Glad I have been of some help to you.

  8. Well done on getting to post 60 lessons on Excel, very impressive! These are so straight-forward and very easy to navigate, which is important.

    I also like that your videos are to the point and you don’t tell us your life story like many videos tend to do these days.

    • Hi Sharon,

      Thanks for your feedback. I’m glad to hear my lessons are good quality and easier to follow.
      Best wishes

      Habib (ICT Tutor)

  11. Hi,I love the short and clear explanantion of the AVERAGEIF function, and what the function is. Very good to highlight the absolute format and its importance in order to use the AVERAGEIF function.

    I like the fact that you are using videoexplanantion in your tutorials. It makes it easier to follow your explanations.


    • Thanks for your comment Roy. The absolute cell refence is the key, if you want to reduce time by replicating the function into other cells, so you don’t have to do each function separately. Take care 🙂

      Habib (ICT tutor)

  12. Another great lesson from you!
    As I already said, I feel “at home” in Excel, but this one particularly I almost forgot exists. I haven’t used it probably for ages and if I am honest, not quite sure I’d do it correctly if I needed it at some point. It is so good that you reminded me how to do it. I think I could actually include this function more often.
    Thank you very much!

    • You’re very welcome Kerryanne. Thanks for your comment and I’m always happy to be reminding you of functions you may have used in the past. Take care 🙂

  13. Hi there,
    Thank you for the amazing tutorial.
    I have no idea about AVERAGEIF but you have just explain and everything to me in just a short video.

    I must say I really appreciate your teaching.

    Thank you.

  14. Dear Habib, thank you for another great explanation of the Excel Averageif function that calculates the average of numbers. With every new lesson I build up my knowledge in Excel. Can’t wish better tutorials.

  15. Hi Habib,

    I have to honestly say that this is most in-depth and informative tutorial I’ve ever seen on the AVERAGEIF function in Excel.

    I recall a few years ago I had to do this for mortgage sales (back in my banking days) within certain thresholds, below certain thresholds, and above certain thresholds.

    Oh my, how I could have done with this tutorial back then, LOL.

    I remember searching online for information about how to do this quickly and easily in Excel, but to be honest much of the information didn’t make a great deal of sense.

    Believe it or not, in the end I had go through our region’s (London) 2,000+ quarterly mortgage sales manually and calculate the average sales. I love my numbers and am happiest when dealing with figures, but this was pretty soul-destroying.

    I have to say that ALL of your tutorials that I have come across are just so easy to follow and make a great deal of sense. Love it. Keep up the great work.


    • Thank you for your lovely feedback and sharing your story. All my lessons and tutorials will always be simple and straight to the point and easy to understand. Take care 🙂
