Default Formula Average

Okay, I give up. I've tried everything possible...except obviously the RIGHT
thing!! I'm trying to do a formula in a table that will average a bunch of
cells. I can average the cells as long as they're contiguous, but I don't
know how to add the one that's separate. I'm trying to average what's in
cells H21, H23, H25, H27, H29, H31 and the troublemaker...B7 and then divide
all that by 2 (or multiply by .50). I've tried many different things, but
this is one of my tries because maybe it'll be clearer what I'm trying to do
seeing it this way. Everything I do gives me a syntax error!! Please help!!

=AVERAGE(H21:H31+B7)/2

Default Formula Average

Hi Ginny,

Code the formula field as:
{=AVERAGE(H21,H23,H25,H27,H29,H31,B7)/2}
Note: Apart from the syntax error, the formula you tried includes H22,H24,H26,H28 & H30 in the averages.

Hi Ginny,
Try: =(AVERAGE(H21:H31,B7))/2

Hi Ginny,

Be aware that Chris' formulation includes H22,H24,H26,H28 & H30 in the averages. Your post indicated they were not to be included;
doing so could lead to erroneous results.
