# Formula Question

I have a column with 12 cells that have this formula in each cell. (I5-H3)/H3/Countif(I5,">0")
The symbol #DIV/0! appears in each cell until a number is inserted.
What I need is a zero (0) or different formula in each cell so I can collect a running average from the data that is placed into each cell over a period of time. Is this possible?

### Excel Facts

Show numbers in thousands?
Use a custom number format of #,##0,K. Each comma after the final 0 will divide the displayed number by another thousand

Would changing your formula to --

=(I5-H3)/H3*(I5<>0) or

=IF(N(I5),(I5-H3)/H3,0)

work ?

I'll give it a try and let you know. Thanks.

Excel contains over 450 functions, with more added every year. That’s a huge number, so where should you start? Right here with this bundle.
