Calculate Average excluding zero values in cells

Last Modified: 2015-08-07
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?
