Hi Guys

I'm after a little help (See below table)

What I am trying to achieve, is an average of cells, B, C & D in column E (ascending)

However, sometimes B,C,D may not have data in, which effect the over all average, how is this best achieved?

TIA

Hello,

So for B Vickers the average will be 56.67%?

why not sum then and divide by 3?

Average() will ignore blank cells anyway

Shouldn't it be?

=IF(COUNT(B3:D3)=0,"",AVERAGE(B3:D3))

Average ignores blank cells.

Shoot, Never thought of that

=COUNTA(B3:D3)/SUM(B3:D3)

But some result in #DIV/0!

Hello,

Try

=IF(ISERROR(COUNTA(B2:D2)/SUM(B2:D2)),"",COUNTA(B2:D2)/SUM(B2:D2))

Shouldn't it be?

=IF(COUNT(B3:D3)=0,"",AVERAGE(B3:D3))

Average ignores blank cells.

Will E28 be correct?

Will E28 be correct?

It's correct to the extent that blanks are ignored (not treated as zero). What do you want it to be?
