We have a spread sheet with a list of destinations that our customer pays extra for. We input the amount of jobs in in each column to give a total which moves the lines down automatically. Underneath these totals is another row giving us the averages of each column. However, the total amount of jobs is having an impact on the indirect formulae that provides us with an average. We want to exclude this row of information so it does not effect the average figures?

@kalyani: The formula does actually works exactly as shown. You just have to make sure you use the SUBTOTAL function for the intermediate subtotals in the column as well.
