I have a range of percentages and want to calculate the average. There are some #DIVIDEBYZERO cells within the range that will populate later on in the year. Is there a way to tell Smartsheet to ignore the #DIVEBYZERO? It is possible in Excel using an AverageIF formula. But I can't see how to do it in Smartsheet.
You can use the =ISERROR formula to return whatever you want when there is an error.
or you can use =iferror(formula, "post this if error, usually a 0 or double quotes for blank")
Is there a way I can use this and also tell the formula to display the average of the cells that do not have an error within them?
use the iferror where you are getting the #Divide By Zero issue not in your average formula.
if there is an error the formula will output a blank. If there isn't an error your original formula will run. Then the average function you currently have will be correct, and you will remove the visible errors on your sheet.
Whatever formula you are using to get your average, put it within the =ISERROR brackets.
=ISERROR(Put your formula here, 0)
That will give you a 0 where there is an error.
