Another seemingly easy question.

I have a sheet that has three columns.

Column A: Date
Column B: Names (say Name X, NAme Y, NAme Z, multiple entries for each name)
Column C: Totals.

I would like to create coulmns that create totals and averages for each NAME. Does that make sense? Say there are 500 rows. How do create sums based on the Name?

The question I want to put in my spread sheet would be: What's the total for every row in which the Name X appears? What's the total for every row in which Name Y appears?

And then:

What's the average based on how many times Name X, Y or Z appears?

Can you AutoAverage in Excel?
There is a drop-down next to the AutoSum symbol. Open the drop-down to choose AVERAGE, COUNT, MAX, or MIN

Use SUMIF()

e.g. =Sumif(B1:B500,"X",C1:C500)
