I need an excel formula to average values in column A only if they are equal to or greater than 1.

I tried the following but it seems that its not correctly averaging if there a negative values.

=average(A:A>=1,A:A). See attached.

In Excel 2007 and later you can use AVERAGEIF, i.e.

=AVERAGEIF(A:A,">=1")

See attached, also includes this formula to give the same result

=AVERAGE(IF(A1:A100>=1,A1:A100))

which is an array formula which needs to be confirmed with CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER

You'd need that to be compatible with Excel 2003 and earlier versions
