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.
