```Excel 2003 has COUNTIF and SUMIF functions, but not COUNTIFS, AVERAGEIF,
AVERAGEIFS, or SUMIFS. You could use array formulas, or SUMPRODUCT formulas
like the following:

in A2 (count formula):
=SUMPRODUCT(--(I2:I65000>0),--(I2:I65000<0.0416667),--(Q2:Q65000=W7))

in A1 (average formula):
=IF(A2=0,0,SUMPRODUCT(--(I2:I65000>0),--(I2:I65000<0.0416667),--(Q2:Q65000=W7),U2:U65000)/A2)

Please note that you can't use whole columns with SUMPRODUCT in Excel 2003.

Hope this helps,

Hutch

Good Morning,

I was wondering if anyone happens to know if the "Averageifs" and "Countifs"
formula functions are available in Office 2003?  If not, what are my
alternatives to writing formulas to look at multiple columns and do average and
count functions?  A suggested possible solution was to buy Office 2007, write
the formulas in that sheet and then "down convert" the formulas to 2003.  Does
anyone know if this actually works?

I will give an example to help.  I have a sheet with ~40,000 lines of data.
Columns are:
1. Day of week (formula from a date/time field of when blood was drawn)
2. Time of day (formula from same field in #1)
3. Turn around time (formula from date/time of blood drawn until results
available to clinician from another captured date/time)

What I would like is an average for #3, given hour of day blood drawn (#2) and
day of week (#1).  My friend and I have come up with these 2 formulas in Excel
2007 for average turn around time and counts for # of blood draws for each hour
of the day for our inpatients:
Average TAT:    =AVERAGEIFS(U:U,I:I,">0",I:I,"<.0416667",Q:Q,"=Fr")  this is
the formula for midnight to 1:00 AM
Counting:       =COUNTIFS(I:I,">0",I:I,"<=.041667",Q:Q,W7)  where W7 is the
cell that has "Fr" for Friday, etc...

conditional array formulas which worked beautifully.  It was noted by the
person that you cannot use I:I for complex formulas in 2003 but you can in 2007
so I did modify the formula everywhere there was a colon I entered numbers for
the cells and it still gives me "?NAME" for an answer.

Formula I used was
:   =AVERAGEIFS(U2:U60000,I2:I60000,">0",I2:I60000,"<.041667",Q2:Q60000,="Fr")   hoping
that adding the numbers would solve the problem....it doesn't.

etc...  would be greatly appreciated.  I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving.
