I am currently using the average function and sometimes the cells which I am averaging across are all blank (have a " " character). When I average these blank cells I get a #DIV/0!.

Is there any way to have the #DIV/0! displayed as 0.0?
(i.e. if average is div0, then set the cell =0)

Thanks in Advance

How can you turn a range sideways?
Copy the range. Select a blank cell. Right-click, Paste Special, then choose Transpose.

Try the following...

=IF(ISERROR(AVERAGE(B14:B16)),0,(AVERAGE(B14:B16)))
