On sheet 2 i have the names again in the A coloum but only one occourance of each name. next i want a colooum with a formuler that will look at the name in A1 sheet 2 say the name was ken jones then i want to be able to go to sheet1 and look for each occourance of that name in the A coloum each time it appears i want excel to average all the corrosponing time online which is displayed in min in coloum H so i end up with average time online for each of the names in sheet 2 coloum A i kind of need a formuler that will average all number in coloum H that corrospond to meeting a certain name

Try this:

=SUMIF(Sheet1!$A$1:$A$40,Sheet2!$A1,Sheet1!$B$1:$B$40)/COUNTIF(Sheet1!$A$1:$A$40,Sheet2!$A1)

This assumes that your names on Sheet1 are in cells A1 to A40, and that the minutes are in column B (again to B40), and that the names in sheet2 are in column A also. Enter the above formula in cell B1 (assumes first name is in A1 on sheet2).

Make sense? Hope so!

Tessa --

What is wrong? You posted this message much earlier to which I replied (even IML got in the loop). I gave you a formula off-line, which is exactly the same as what Russell Hauf formulates below.

Just curious, that's all.
