# AVERAGE NON-ZERO CELLS ACROSS SEVERAL WORKSHEETS IN SAME WORKBOOK

S

#### SHANE

I HAVE A WOOKBOOK WITH 54 WORKSHEETS, THEY ARE ALL IDENTICAL, BUT REPRESENT
DIFFERENT PEOPLE. I AM CREATING A SUMMARY SHEET THAT WILL DISPLAY DATA
GATHERED FROM ALL OF THE OTHER SHEETS. I AM NOT HAVING ANY ISSUE WITH
"SUMMING" THE DATA, BUT I CANNOT SEEM TO GET A GOOD AVERAGE. THE CELL I NEED
TO AVERAGE CONTAINS A FORMULA AND THEREFORE NON OF THEM ARE "BLANK" THEY
CONATIN "ZEROES". I NEED THE AVERAGE ON THE SUMMARY SHEET TO BE BASED ONLY ON
THE NON-ZERO CELLS.

I HAVE THIS, ENTERED AS AN ARRAY, BUT GET A "REF" ERROR.
{=AVERAGE(IF('SHEET1:SHEET54'!K3>0,SHEET1:SHEET54'!K3))}

I HAVE ALSO TRIED TAKING THE SUM AND DIVIDING IT BY THE NUMBER OF CELLS
GREATER THAN ZERO CELLS USING THE "COUNTIF" FUNCTION AS FOLLOWS:

=SUM('SHEET 1:SHEET 20'!K3)/COUNTIF('SHEET 1:SHEET 20'!K3,">0")

THIS GIVES ME A "VALUE" ERROR.

I NEED HELP!!

Are there any negative numbers involved?

Maybe he is just trying to get across the deafening silence in the MSDG
system.

(See my thread "FYI: MSDG not displaying posts;...".)

Besides, you're all the way across "the pond". Don't we have to shout in
order for you to hear us?

PS: Sorry about that contentless posting. I finally figured out my
problem -- the reason why I seem to be doing so much of that lasely. In OE,
the Send button is normally in the relative position as the Reply Group
button when I am reading a posting; and I have a tendency to double-click
are often non-responsive :-(. Aha! I can fix that: just customized the
toolbar. Klunk!

Sorry about the caps lock key, I didn't mean to "Shout".

No, their are no negative numbers in any of the cells. just zero's, or
higher.

{=AVERAGE(IF('SHEET1:SHEET54'!K3>0,SHEET1:SHEET54'!K3))}

Try this...

=SUM(Sheet1:Sheet54!K3)/INDEX(FREQUENCY(Sheet1:Sheet54!K3,0),2)

Your formula worked Perfectly! Thank you so much!!

You're welcome. Thanks for the feedback!
