Average Row Formula

Is there a way to calculate the average of a row if some cells are
empty but when calculating the average they should have the value of
the cell to the left?

If the following data is enterered

A B C D E F G

1 3     5   6

For the calculation  the cells should use the data

A B C D E F G

1 3 3 3 5 5 6

Also what would the average formula be if you wanted to skip one of the
cells from the average calculation?

Thanks

Tom

Formula
Have a simple idea that is giving me fits. Have a worksheet with numberic data and labels in rows and columns. Below each column I use a simple SUM() function which works fine, until I disturb a row of data. By disturb, what I mean is that if I move the top row of data down to the bottom of the array, highlight the entire data area, move that area up one row, I lose the correct references in the SUM() function. I'm just moving the data area, not the row containing my SUM() functions - that stays put. IOW, the SUM() function is in row 12, the data area extends from row 1 through ...

Formula Paste Button
Excel provides menu bar buttons for "format" and "value" pastes, but not for "formula" pastes.

There may be data entered elsewhere in the column, but it is outside of the selected range and thus shouldn't be considered for being hidden or not.
