A straight range would also work, if there are any values in that range at all. That always worked for me when I was figuring grades.

There may be another function for averaging that avoids any zero values.
Otherwise, create a formula that first finds all non-zero values, and then
adds them up and divide by the total count of non-zero values. That takes a
few functions, but workable. I recall doing something like this several
years ago. First try to find a built-in function that averages all non-zero

Also, check the Excel help function to look for any web-sourced solutions to
your question.

ok I'm now trying to get excel to tell me the AVERAGE of cells B102 D102
F102 G102 H102 I102 J102 K102 L102 M102
the problem being at the moment not all the cells have a number in them and
all it says is div 0,but as time goes on they will all have a number in
the formula i have tried is =AVERAGE(B102 D102 F102 G102 H102 I102 J102 K102
L102 M102) but with this fromaler as far as I can tell the advridge of
these numbers all need a number in for it to show anything.
for example if b 102 and f 102 have numbers in I still get nothing in the
average cell.

well I hope you can make some sort of sense out of my ramblings.

I you want to use the formulas dialog, press ALT+m, then f. Tab to
the categories and choose all, then tab once more and find
average. You can fill in range after range after range, tabbing from
one to the next. Tabbing will *never get you to the okay button,
because it just allows for another range. Pressing enter might do
the okay, or shift+tab till you get back to okay.
