Help! new to calculated columns although getting the hang of it I have 6 columns which will contain a value, I what to average the total figure divided by the number of columns but I want to exclude columns containing 0 and I am struggling! a lot!

In Excel I can do this by;

=SUM(E6:E11)/SUMPRODUCT(N(E6:E11<>0),N(LEN(E6:E11)>0))

or

=AVERAGEIF(E6:E11,">0.1")

Because you have a fixed number of columns, this is a cinch.

=(Value1+Value2+Value3+Value4+Value5+Value6)/(IF(Value1=0, 0, 1) + IF(Value2=0, 0, 1) + IF(Value3=0, 0, 1) + IF(Value4=0, 0, 1) + IF(Value5=0, 0, 1) + IF(Value6=0, 0, 1))

  • Do I assume value is my column name?
