## How to average for cells with values only (exclude 0 or blank cells) in Excel?

Average function is quite useful for our daily works in Excel. This article will talk about how to calculate the average for cells with values only (excluding blank cells) in Excel easily.

#### Average with Ignoring/excluding blank cells with formula

The Average function will ignore the truly blank cells automatically. However, if you have disabled the option of Show a zero in cells that have zero value in Excel Options dialog box (clicking File > Options > Advanced > Display options for this worksheet), some blank cells may have zero values in Excel. In this case, the Average function will not exclude these blank cells with zero values.

Actually we can exclude the cells with zeros to solve this problem. For example, you want to average the Range A1:D13 with ignoring/excluding blank cells and zeros, you can apply the formula =AVERAGEIF(A1:D13,"<>0") as below screenshot shown:
