## How to calculate average cells from different sheets in Excel?

If you want to calculate average of same range/cells from different worksheets, how could you deal with it quickly? In this article, I will introduce a couple of ways to calculate average of cells from/across different sheets in Excel.

#### Calculate average of cells from multiple sheets in Excel

For example you want to calculate the average of Range A1:A10 from Sheet 1 to Sheet 5, you can easily solve it as follows:

Step 1: Select a blank cell, says Cell C3, enter the formula =AVERAGE(Sheet1:Sheet5!A1:A10) into it, and press the Enter key. Now you will get the average in the Cell.

Notes:
(1) In the formula of =AVERAGE(Sheet1:Sheet5!A1:A10), Sheet1:Sheet5 is the multiple adjacent sheets you will calculate the average from, and A1:A10 means the same cells/range you will calculate the average in the multiple sheets. You can change them based on your needs.
(2) If you want to calculate the average of different cells/range from different worksheets in Excel, for example you want to calculate the average of Range A1:A5 in Sheet1, Range A3:A6 in Sheet2, Range A7:A9 in Sheet3, Range A2:A10 in Sheet4, and Range A4:A7 in Sheet5, you should apply this formula =AVERAGE(A1:A5,Sheet2!A3:A6,Sheet3!A7:A9,Sheet4!A2:A10,Sheet5!A4:A7).

Hi there,

You can try the formula as shown below:
=SUM(Sheet1:Sheet2!A1:A10)/SUM(INDEX(FREQUENCY(Sheet1:Sheet2!A1:A10,0-{0.0000001,0}),N(IF(1,{1,3}))))

Remember to change the snippet Sheet1:Sheet2!A1:A10 to your actual range.
