(Excel examples for Beginners)
In this end-to-end excel example, you will learn – Excel formula for Beginners – How to Average if criteria not blank in Excel.
To calculate an average, excluding blank values in a criteria range, you can use the AVERAGEIFS function and a simple logical expression. In the example shown, the formula in F6 is:
where “price” (C5:C15) and “group” (D5:D15) are named ranges.
How this formula works
Excel supports a number of logical operators that can be used in various ways to construct criteria. In this example, we are using the not equals to operator (<>) to exclude values with no group in D5:D15. The range and criteria are supplied as two arguments:
Which is equivalent to the expression:
which means not equal to an empty string, e.g. not empty.
The formula above will not exclude empty strings returned by formulas (=””). If you have empty strings returned by formulas in the criteria range, you can adjust the criteria like this:
This will correctly exclude empty string returned by formulas.
