    Hi, there is a simpler way using the "AGGREGATE" function. This is a generic function which allows one to calculate a number of simple statistics (eg. average, minimum, st. dev) ignoring error values or other types of values (e.g. zeros, hidden etc)=.
    For average you would type:
    =AGGREGATE(1,6,A1:C6)
    NB: In this formula Option 1 is to calculate average while Option 6 is to ignore error values.

      I think it should be =SUMIF(I13:I18,">=0")/COUNTIF(I13:I18,">=0")
