Is there a easier way to average a column that appears in many sheets i
a woorkbook.

I know how to average a column, but I have like 15 or so of these (ne
one every month)

here is what I use now.
where row 1 is a header so we start with row 2 and then the row enght i
number ofd days in a month.

=AVERAGE(Jan!\$C\$24:Jan!\$C\$54,Feb!\$C\$2:Feb!\$C\$30,Mar!\$C\$2:Mar!\$C\$32,Apr!\$C\$2:Apr!\$C\$31,May!\$C31:May!\$C\$32,Jun!\$C\$2:Jun!\$C\$31,Jul!\$C\$2:Jul!\$C\$32,Aug!\$C\$2:Aug!\$C\$32,Sep!\$C\$2:Sep!\$C\$31,Oct!\$C\$2:Oct!\$C\$32,Nov!\$C\$2:Nov!\$C\$31,Dec!\$C\$2ec!\$C\$32,Jan13!\$C\$2:Jan13!\$C\$32,Feb13!\$C\$2:Feb13!\$C\$29,Mar13!\$C\$2:Mar13!\$C\$32,Apr13!\$C\$2:Apr13!\$C31)

then it would be \$c3 then \$c4.... to end of the month

Thanks in advance for any help

There are several ways of making this easier, but they depend on thing
like what version of Excel you're using for this workbook and what you
data layout is like. None of which we can tell from your post..

The indirect function gathers text to make a formula - so you ca
specify in a formula what tab to look into. The other two tabs jus
format the inputs for the formula... if you require further explanatio
i can provide this

For April to Juli I entered a suggestion in column I or J.
For January to March you can't do it in a simplier way.
You sometimes forgot to set the reference absolut.

Thanks for the help but the problem with that is not all columns end a
row 32, they end between rows 29 and 32. Row 33 and below (i did no
include that) start doing a bunch of number crunching for the specifi
month
Is there a tool for formula absolut Value checking in Excell

you can use the greatest range e.g. C2:C32
Empty cells will be ignored

have a look in the help for AVERAGE
Text and empty cells will be ignored.
You only would get a wrong result, if there are zeros in the cells
below.
