Supposing we have a purchase table as following screen shot shown, and we will take this table as an example to describe the way to calculate weekly averages in detail.

Step 1: Besides original purchase table, enter WeekNUM in Cell D1, and then enter the formula =WEEKNUM(A2,2) (Note: A2 is the cell with purchase date in Date/Time column) into Cell D2, and then drag the Fill Handle to the range we need. Now the week numbers are displayed in the WeekNUM column. See screenshot:

Step 2: This step is optional. If the purchase dates cover several years, you may want to calculate the weekly averages in the same year. Enter Year in the Cell E1, and enter the formula =YEAR(A2) (Note: A2 is the cell with purchase date in Date/Time column) into Cell E2, and then drag the Fill Handle to the range we need.

Step 3: In Cell F1 enter Average, and then enter the formula =IF(AND(D2=D1,E2=E1),"",AVERAGEIFS($C$2:$C$39,$D$2:$D$39,D2,$E$2:$E$39,E2)) into Cell F2, and then drag the Fill Handle to the range we need.


(1) If two purchases occurred in the same week of same year, the formula of =IF(AND(D2=D1,E2=E1),"",AVERAGEIFS($C$2:$C$39,$D$2:$D$39,D2,$E$2:$E$39,E2)) will return blank; if not, it will return the weekly average.

(2) And in this formula, D1 and D2 are cells with week numbers, E1 and E2 are cells with years, $C$2:$C$39 is the range you will calculate weekly average, $D$2:$D$39 is the WeekNUM column you will evaluate by week numbers, $E$2:$E$39 is the Year column you will evaluate by years, and you can change them based on your needs.

(3) If you want to calculate the weekly averages but ignoring years, you can enter the formula =AVERAGEIF($D$2:$D$39,D2,$C$2:$C$39) into Cell F2 and drag the Fill Handle to the range you need. And you will see the weekly averages as below screen shot shown:

 This method will introduce Kutools for Excel's To Actual utility and Advanced Combine Rows utility to batch calculate all weekly averages at ease.
