    Hi, I've got an excel query about using the averageifs statement. The data table is many thousands lines long with so many different companies which I need to arrange by. I have created a similar simplified and smaller data table to try and help explain the problem I am having.

    What I'm trying to do is to get the average duration for the final column based on certain criteria.
    The problem I have is that I want to do this based on company name as criteria1 in the averageifs statement. So for example if Sainsburys appears three times, I want this average in 'Column J'. I know how to do this but I would like to do is to create a macro (I don't know if it's possible) that will save me from manually having to enter each time into the formula statement 'Sainsburys'. Ideally, I could filter out 'Reloading' and 'Shelf Stacking' by using <> in the statement.

    Once I've then got the company duration averages worked out, I would then like to do this by location averages (again, I don't want to manually type up 1000s of locations do this).

    I wondered whether there was a simpler way to do this. I'm quite new to Excel and VBA, so a few pointers would be apprecited.


    PS - in time it would be useful to do some kind of analysis
