average on rows
can we use average in rows even two rows at the time when number are not in
consequent collums meaning there is some spaces between them without having to add each number manually in the function window.  XP home , Office 97 any or all responses are gratefully accepted and thank you for your time

Have you tried? Your description is confusing to me, but AVERAGE()
ignores blank cells and text... In article , justamailman wrote: can we use average in rows even two rows at the time when number are not in consequent collums meaning there is some spaces between them without having to add each number manually in the function window.

sorry, let me try to explain a little more . Well i have some number in two
subsequent rows in different collums and i want an average of all but the problem is that they are not in subsequent collum. average does not seem to work when the number have an empty collum between them x  y  empty  z  empty  x    average y  x  z  x  x  empty  "JE McGimpsey" wrote: Have you tried?

If you used something like =AVERAGE(A1:H2) you should get the correct value
even when these are blank cell in the range. If the rows are not consecutive you could use =AVERAGE(A1:H1, A5:H5) for example best wishes  Bernard Liengme www.stfx.ca/people/bliengme remove CAPS in email address "justamailman" wrote in message ... sorry, let me try to explain a little more .

Hold down Ctrl key and leftclick on each of the cells you wish to
average.......then Insert Name Define and type a RangeName for your new Noncontiguious range, say "AverageRange" then use =AVERAGE(AverageRange) This way, even if numbers get put in the empty cells later, it will not affect your calculation.
