Averageif Error

I am using the formula

averageif(\$G219:\$N219,"<>0") in my workbook however if one of the cells
contains "0" it returns the error #DIV/0!

Why and how can I get rid of it

Thanks

Averageif Error

In excel 2007 the below works if atleast there is one entry which is not = 0
=AVERAGEIF(\$G219:\$N219,"<>0")

If you mean to avoid div error if all the cell values are 0 then try the below
=IF(SUM(\$G219:\$N219),AVERAGEIF(\$G219:\$N219,"<>0"), "")

If this post helps click Yes

Actually, you're getting the error if there are no cells that are non-zero,
right?

If the range is always numeric, then you could use:

Or you could check to see if the only numbers were 0's:
