Simple Average Question

How do I average the following column:

1
2
3

4
5
6


The blank row after the three should also be counted as zero. However
I have a very large spreadsheet, and I don't want to go back and enter
zeros in all of the blank cells.

Is there a way?

Thanks

Use the following array-entered formula (press ctrl+shift+Enter instead of
just Enter):

=AVERAGE(IF(A1:A1000="",0,A1:A1000))

If all of the "blank" data are truly empty cells (no constant and no
formula, not even the null string), you might be able to use the following
array-entered formula (again, press ctrl+shift+Enter instead just Enter):

=AVERAGE(--A1:A1000)
