    I have Excel 2002 and Pocket Excel 2002.
    When I average a non contiguous series of cells, the desktop version does not count blank cells (good) and the pocket excel counts blank cells as zero (bad).
    Is there another formula I can use to average these cells so that it will not count blank cells on Pocket Excel

    =AVERAGE(H4,L4,P4,T4,X4,AB4)

    Surprising!

    Try:

    =SUM(H4,L4,P4,T4,X4,AB4)/MAX(1,COUNT(H4,L4,P4,T4,X4,AB4))
