# Average While Ignoring Zeros And Errors?

Feb 14, 2013
I'm trying to return the average, min and max values of a range that will have errors, be blank or have zeros. I have already found an array formula that works getting rid of the errors but the zeros are now a problem.

{=AVERAGE(IF(NOT(ISERROR(D27:G27)),D27:G27))}

I was thinking that an OR might be needed but for the life of me can't figure out where it belongs. I will also be using this formula with both MIN and MAX in the adjacent cells so it would be great if all I have to do is swap those in for AVERAGE. I'm not keen on how array formulas work, just found an example similar to this on the interwebs, and I'm curious why if the array brackets are removed the value returned is 0 and not an error.

Workbook is proprietary so VB is locked and not an option (not sure if it was but wanted to be clear).

E11 through E24 contains numbers and a few errors (#N/A) that need to persist (the errors need to show).

E10 needs to show the average of the numbers that are in E11 through E24, and just ignore the errors.

I have many columns like that - where the errors need to show and I need to show an average of the number/values that do appear, ignoring the errors.

I need a formula that will find the mode from a range of numbers but ignore the 0's. I have worked out the below array formula which seems to work.

{=IF(MODE(IF(N18:P25>0,N18:P25))=1,"Low",IF(MODE(IF(N18:P25>0,N18:P25))=2,"Secure",IF(MODE(IF(N18:P2 5>0,N18:P25))=3,"High")))}

The only thing is, if only one cell contains a number other than 0 (eg. 1,2 or 3) then it returns #N/A. Ideally i'd like it to show the appropriate response for the number that is in the number range. For example - if one cell shows the number 2 and the rest are 0's, i'd like it to show Secure(the response for 2) rather than #N/A.

In my spreadsheet, I have a formula that extract to other column only non duplicates, then I want this information in other column sort by the lowest number but without the zero.

Column A, all numbers extracted

Column B, all non duplicates, where normally we have one zero.

I want the result from Column B in other sheet like that:

SheetA, Column B: 637,635,663,0,618.

SheetB, Column A, RowX: 618;635;637;663.

I would like to reorder a list whilst ignoring any 0 values. I've attached (I hope correctly!) a spreadsheet of what I mean. It's pretty simple, but I've been banging my head over it for a while now!

I am trying to create a weighted average which will skip any row when Column B say's "yes" and then if Column N contains, a 0, I would like that to be skipped as well. The below works for skipping any row with the word "Yes", but it still includes 0 in the weighted average. Also, let's say the Column N contains a word and 0's, how can I skip that?

=SUMPRODUCT(($B$13:$B$15="Yes")*($I$13:$I$15)*(N13:N15))/SUMIF($B$13:$B$15,"Yes",$I$13:$I$15)

If I have a formula which adds the value of each day of the week and divides by 7 to get an average per day, how do i fix it to get an average if their is a holiday so their would only be 6 days without changing the formula as the holidays could change from week to week by province.

=(a+b+c+d+e+f+g)/7 what happens if "e" is a holiday and I need to divide by 6, or in the case of xmas if "d and e" are holidays and I need to divide by 5?

I have a colomn with numers and text. I would like to get an average of the numbers in the column, but using average (A1:A10) gives me #N/A as some of the cells contain #N/A.

So wondering if there is an AverageIF function in excel that I can use to write something which only averages IF it is a number.

Sounds very basic but I could not find anything through search.

Trying to determine the best way to do this. I understand that the standard AVERAGE function will ignore blanks if given a range; the function I'm using does a search for a particular value to determine if a value is to be included in the averaging: ...

I want to average the cells in column B but ignore values in the corresponding rows with a 1 or 7 in column C.

This will be used in a years data where 1 - 7 are days of the week and I want to separate weekdays from weekends when calculating an average.

What I have is a spreadsheet with a whole bunch of sporting data on it. see attachment for an idea of the layout, Stats.jpg

In these data each round a player is given a rating. What I want to do is calculate is the average rating for each player across the last 3 and 5 games they have played. When a player misses a game they get a rating of 0 for the round. I want 0 ratings to be ignored in the running averages. Additionally, games yet to be played have a 0 in the cell and should be ignored. To get overall averages ignoring 0's was simple I used the averageif function, but I couldn't figure out how to use that but only extract the last 3 non 0 values. I currently have data up to round 12, so if a player has played in 12, 11 and 10 then the 3 round average should just be the average of these 3, but if they missed for example round 11 then the 3 round average should return the average of 9, 10 and 12.

The data is set out in the following way.

In column B I have a list of player names from cells B3:B618.

Across row 1 from N1:AM1 are labels "round 1" "round 2" etc.

The ratings for each player in each round are in N-AM and from 3-618. i.e. N3:AM3 contains the weekly rating for player 1, 4 contains player 2 etc.

I would like the 3 round averages to be returned for each player in column L and 5 round averages in column M.

So in Cell K12 there is a rather large formula (I condensed it for this example).

This formula is to average out the respective cells in column J. For each cell there is a possibility of 9 different entries. NRT, N/O, 1,2,3,4,5,6,7

So based on the formula in K12 I need Cell J12 to Display the answer.

if any one of the Cells referenced in the formula are NRT then I need it to Display NRT. Which the Formula does now.

The problem comes in when a Cell is N/O (Not Observed)

How do I get the formula to Ignore N/O currently I have it set up to recognize N/O as 0. But excel averages 0 in and it affects the answer.

I know in a simple formula I can add <>0 to the formula to ignore zeros. How to write it into a bigger formula such as in K12.

For example the current numbers in Cells J17:J25 should average 5 however the formula averages it as 1 because it calculates N/O as 0.

I need to Average the cells I7, I9, F12:F18, M12:M18 in Cell G2

Cell F12 is an Average of its respective cells bellow. (and so forth)

NRT will = 1

N/O will = 0

I have cells F12:F18, M12:M18 indicate NRT in the cells when selected I would like N/O to also be displayed however it comes across as 0.

How do I avoid the #DVI/0! Errors and get the averages to calculate appropriately.

I am trying to get a rolling 8wk avg of a large group of data. I am trying to take the avg of 8 vlookups:

=AVERAGE(VLOOKUP($A$9,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP($A$9-7,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP($A$9-14,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP($A$9-21,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP($A$9-28,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP($A$9-35,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP($A$9-42,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE),VLOOKUP($A$9-49,'Raw Data'!$A:$DV,MATCH(B8,'Raw Data'!$2:$2,0), FALSE))

However, in some cases, the cell to be looked-up may be blank. Using the formula above, the result of these vlookups is "0". I want to take the average of these vlookups excluding the blanks from the 'Raw Data' sheet.

I'm currently trying to perform some statistical functions on a range of data but with little success.

I want to "AVERAGE" the range and also do a "STDEV" on the range G8:G107 but some of the cells contain #N/A formula errors. I must have the formula returning #N/A to the cells else my chart on the same range plots the empty cell as 0.

What formula can I use that will let me do the standard average and stdev functions on that range, but ignoring the #N/A errors as if they were simply empty cells?

I'm trying to rank the values in cells S32:S38 in ascending order while ignoring zeros and negative values. I also need to rank duplicate values with a unique ranking, so that no ranking value is repeated. I tried the formula below, but the ranking values start at "2" instead of "1" and I can't figure out how to fix it.

Formula:

I need to average the columns of data and ignore both hidden rows and zero values. I have tried writing if statements as well as the subtotal function. Both functions either ignore null values or hidden rows but not both.

The system wont let me update a sample workbook but Im wondering whether there is a formula or combo formula for this.

I have a column of numbers that are derived with a formula. I need to Average only the ones that either have a Positive or Negative number, ignoring blanks or zero.

I have tried Search but couldn't find anything that address both blank and zero.

Excel tables to the web : [URL] .......

With this small sample, the answer should be 3.35% according to Excel when I choose just those neg and pos cells.

I am using a formula to include all values greater than zero in my average which has worked fine until i tried to extend the parameters, then it gives me the Value? sign. Does anyone know another way to accomplish what i want?

here is what i am using now.

=average(if(BZ28:CM28<>0, BZ28:CM28, " "))

i was trying to make the CM extend to CS, but for some reason it is not working.

Anyway, i figure a different equation might be better than what i

have and solve my problem.

I want to take an average of only non-zero numbers in a range of cells containing a few zeros. I know there is a function to do this, but I haven't been able to find it. With the normal average() function, the denominator is too large as cells with 0 are included.

I current have an Excel doc that I am trying to pull averages from. Every row has data that needs to be averaged but I only need every other cell. And I cannot have zeros in the average because it will skew the data. Also if the average for a row ends up being 0, I want that average to show up as 0 not #DIV/0!. From Column H to EE I need to average each row individually.

I came up with the below formula.

=IF(SUM(H1:H1:J1:J1:L1:L1)=0, "0", AVERAGEIF(H1:H1:J1:J1:L1:L1, ">0")

It works but Its not practical because I have to manually enter all of the cells that it pulls from.

I've got a worksheet that has chronological quarterly data for which I'd like to do a 5-year rolling average. The layout is: Column A = Dates, Column B = Values, and Column C = 5-year Rolling Average. My problem is that I want to exclude zero-values from the averaging calculation. I tried the following:

={AVERAGE(IF(B1,B5,B9,B13,B170,B1,B5,B9,B13,B17))}

However, Excel will not accept this formula (I assume an array must be contiguous? Please let me know if that's correct).

I have a one column of numbers...let's say consisting of six rows

the following numbers 12,0,14,25,0,9

if I average this it comes out to 10

how can I average the same rows but exclude the zeros in the outcome(is there a formula to do that?)

I would like the answer to be 15.....I still need the zero's in the rows however

I am trying to make a excell spread sheet that will calculate my students averages for the year. I need to account for zeros in the coarse and I want this excel sheet to track the current average all year long . So I do not need to include my blanks in the average as I go. Also , how do I formulate my average accum to show this formula - Test scores, four of them count as 80% of the total grade. So each test is worth 20% / Lab 10% of total grade and homework is additional 10%. I downloaded the templete from MSN and have tweaked it to my liking except for the coding above. Please advise. I am a below par on Excel. My attachemtn is below of my templete. One note. the templete gave me the room to include 13 ros of homework - but I will not necessarily use all of them... I can make it one row for home work only ....

Attached is an xls with my formulas and problem. We need a way to factor in zeros in grading student workers. However, we also need a way to omit blank or null cells if the workers did not do a particular project. The formulas currently in the sheet compute zeros for both scenarios, lowering the overall 'grade' for workers who didn't do a project compared with workers who did the project but got a '0'

I have run into a problem with the array formula. After inserting formula with the CTRL+SHFT+Enter it is giving me the same sum to the 3 cells that I had array formulas in but trying to capture different data from what was in the capturing column. Example:

If row F consists of text types: Move-in, Mid Year, and Year End as potential options,and row G is the score for that text type(cells will consist percentages), give me the average of all the cells in row G that are specific to Move-In only, but don't include the blanks in the average.

My existing formula isn't designated to exclude the blanks. how to exclude blanks and how to get it to stop giving me the same result in the three separate cells. My current formula is as such: {=AVERAGE(IF(F2:F73=E76, H2:H73))}
