Formula needed

Hi Experts,

I want to know the average absolute values of a range of cells. I have tried =AVERAGE(ABS(A1000:A2000)) but this is not correct.

Try entering that formula as an array formula, use control+shift+enter.

Hello,

this is an array formula and must be confirmed with CTRL-SHIFT-ENTER. Also, make sure there are no empty cells in the range, otherwise the result will not be correct.

See attached.

cheers, teylyn
