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.

 seconds too slow. [/edit]
