I am using the following averageIf formula

```
=AVERAGEIF('Backend Data - Aerospace'!D:D, "Total",'Backend Data - Aerospace'!E:E)
```

However, it is counting 0’s and i do not want this.

Is there a way i can exclude 0’s from being calculated as part of the average?

Thanks

To exclude zero values, you’d use the criteria `<>0`

.

`=AVERAGEIFS('Backend Data - Aerospace'!E:E,'Backend Data - Aerospace'!D:D, "Total",'Backend Data - Aerospace'!E:E,"<>0")`

If you need a formula that doesn’t ignore empty cells or if you’re still using Excel 2003, you can use a formula in the following format:

`=SUM(range)/COUNTIF(range,"<>0")`
