A database is a list of related data in which rows of related information are records, and columns of data are fields. The first row of the list contains labels for each column. Field indicates which column is used in the function. Enter the column label enclosed between double quotation marks, such as "Age" or "Yield," or a number (without quotation marks) that represents the position of the column within the list: 1 for the first column, 2 for the second column, and so on. Criteria is the range of cells that contains the conditions that you specify. You can use any range for the criteria argument, as long as it includes at least one column label and at least one cell below the column label in which you specify a condition for the column. Although the criteria range can be located anywhere on the worksheet, do not place the criteria range below the list. If you add more information to the list, the new information is added to the first row below the list. If the row below the list is not blank, Microsoft Excel cannot add the new information. Make sure that the criteria range does not overlap the list. To perform an operation on an entire column in a database, enter a blank line below the column labels in the criteria range. 10 Most Used Formulas MS Excel
