I'm trying to get one drop down cell that matches a particular column in a range of data & another cell that matches a different column in that range.

Example:

Page 2

Athlete NameType of blockEffortAssignmentTechnique
JoeZone11.5
JohnPass.751.75
AlexPass1.5.25
AlexZone.510
JohnPull1.751
AlexZone11.5

Page 1

Athlete Name:
Drop down list of names (Joe, John, Alex)
EffortAssignmentTechnique
ZoneAverage of Page 2 range that matches name & type here
Pass
Pull

I'm trying to figure out how to write an equation that goes in the red text area of Page 1 that calculates all of Page 2 range that matches athlete name in column A of page 2 to the athlete name in A2 of page 1, as well as matching all of the column B of Page 2 to the A4 cell of Page 1. So if I choose Alex as a name in Page 1, it outputs his effort grade for Zone as .75 in the red cell on Page 1.

Does that make sense?

Do I need an averageif equation? Or a index(match())?

I'm not very fluent with Excel yet & am trying to learn. If anyone can help me out or provide the resources to walk me through it, I would greatly appreciate it!

Thank you,
Matt

When did Power Query debut in Excel?
Although it was an add-in in Excel 2010 & Excel 2013, Power Query became a part of Excel in 2016, in Data, Get & Transform Data.

Thank you Marcelo! That was really helpful! I got the average to work for all needed cells.

If I wanted it to provide a count of those averages should I use "COUNTIFS" instead of "AVERAGEIFS", I've tried but an error of expecting the 2nd argument to be in pairs is showing up?
