Calculate Average excluding zero values in cells

I need to calculate the average for a set of numbers, but I do not want to include the zero values in my calculation.  For instance, in the month of July i have values of 8.4 and 5.2, their average would be 6.8 but my table has multiple rows for all the days in July and when i calculate the average it brings all those zero value in and makes the average extremely low.  

I am using PowerPivot and Access to get the data.  Is the a function i can use to calculate this average?

you can do that with =AVERAGE(IF(A1:A10<>0,A1:A10))   old excel

and for new excel =AVERAGEIF(A1:A10,"<>0")

does this function, AVERAGEIF translate in PowerPivot?   I am getting an error message...
