Is there a way to calculate a average, but eliminating the two lowest values from the data list before calculating the average?

Thanks,

Corey
 

Excel Facts

Which came first: VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3?
Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston debuted VisiCalc in 1979 as a Visible Calculator. Lotus 1-2-3 debuted in the early 1980's, from Mitch Kapor.

for a range A1:a10, you could use
=(SUM(A1:A10)-SUM(SMALL(A1:A10,{1,2})))/MAX(1,(COUNT(A1:A10)-2))

this will cause an error if less than two values exist your range.
