What is the fastest way to copy a formula?
If A2:A50000 contain data. Enter a formula in B2. Select B2. Double-click the Fill Handle and Excel will shoot the formula down to B50000.

Try this:

=AVERAGE(IF(G2:G536<>0,G2:G536))

This must be confirmed with CTRL-SHIFT-ENTER rather than just Enter.

The simple way is:

=SUM(G2:G536)/COUNTIF(G2:G536,"<>0")

or you could try:

=Average(IF(G2:G536,G2:G536))

qand use CTRL-SHIFT-ENTER rather than just enter.
