PROBLEMS WITH AVERAGEIF FUNCTION IN EXCEL 2003

Last Modified: 2014-05-02
Earlier I posted a problem of having 10 cells with numeric values and needed an average given that not all cells may have values.

If received a solution that goes like this...

="The average of the "& COUNTIF(A1:A10,"> 0") & " years is $ " & AVERAGEIF(A1:A10,">0")

I was unable to get it to work and a reply brought no response.

In testing, I brought the formula down to its simplest use...

=AVERAGEIF(A1:A10,">0")

But all I get is a #NAME? response.  

Does AVERAGEIF work in Excel 2003?  If not, is there a workaround?
