AVERAGEA

AVERAGEA(value1 [,value2] [..])

Returns the arithmetic mean of non blank cells in a list, table or cell range (including logical values and text).

value1The first value.
value2(Optional) The second value.

REMARKS
* This function is identical to the AVERAGE function except that logical values and text are included.
* This function includes hidden cells.
* Arguments that are numbers are included.
* Arguments that are zero are included.
* Arguments that are dates are included and the date serial number will be used. (Row 12)
* Arguments that are cell references to cells containing logical values are included. (Row 11)
* Arguments that are arrays containing logical values are included. (Row 20)
* Arguments that are just logical values are included. (Row 19)
* Arguments that evaluate to True are included and 1 is used.
* Arguments that evaluate to False are included and 0 is used.
* Arguments that are cell references to cells containing text are included and 1 is used. (Row 10)
* Arguments that are arrays containing text are included. (Row 17)
* Arguments that are just text will generate an error. (Row 16)
* If any cell references are empty, then these are excluded. (Row 8)
* If any cell references contain an error, then that error is returned. (Row 15)
* You can have a maximum of 255 arguments.
* You can use the AVERAGEAVISIBLE - User Defined Function to exclude hidden cells.
* This is similar to the COUNTA, MAXA and MINA functions.

1 - What is the average (or arithmetic mean) of 2 and 4. 6 divided by 2.
2 - What is the average of 5, 10 and 15. 30 divided by 3.
3 - What is the average of 5, 10, 15 and 0. Zeros are always included. 30 divided by 4.
4 - What is the average of -2, -3, 4, 5 and 6. 10 divided by 5.
5 - What is the average of -2, -3, 4, 5 and 6 passed in as an array. 10 divided by 5.
6 - What is the average of the values in the range "B1:B3". 30 divided by 3.
7 - What is the average of the values in the range "B1", "B2" and "B3". 30 divided by 3.
8 - What is the average of the values in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B4". B4 is empty. Empty cells are always excluded. 30 divided by 3.
9 - What is the average of the values in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B5". B5 is zero so this gets included. 30 divided by 4.
10 - What is the average of the values in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B6". B6 is text so this gets included. 30 divided by 3.
11 - What is the average of the values in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B8". B8 is a logical value so this gets included. 30 divided by 3.
12 - What is the average of the values in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B7". B7 is a date so this gets included as a date serial number.
13 - What is the average of the values in the named range that refers to the range "B1:B3". 30 divided by 3.
14 - What is the average of the values in the range "B5", "B6" and "B9". B9 contains an error so that gets returned.
15 - What is the average of the values 2 and "2". The text representation of a number is excluded. 2 divided by 1.
16 - What is the average of the values 2 and "some text". The text generates an error.
17 - What is the average of the values 2 and "some text" passed in as an array. The text gets included. 2 divided by 2.
18 - What is the average of the values 2 and the logical value True. TRUE is replaced with 1 so the logical value gets included. 7 divided by 4.
19 - What is the average of the values 2 and the logical value False. FALSE is replaced with 0 so the logical value gets included. 6 divided by 4.
20 - What is the average of the values 2 and the logical value False passed in as an array. The logical value is excluded. 2 divided by 1.
