```The IFERROR function can only be used in Excel 2007.

Try this array formula** :

=LOOKUP(1E100,CHOOSE({1,2},0,AVERAGE(IF(MOD(COLUMN(G5:HC5)-COLUMN(G5),4)=0,IF(G5:HC5>0,G5:HC5)))))

** array formulas need to be entered using the key combination of
CTRL,SHIFT,ENTER (not just ENTER). Hold down both the CTRL key and the SHIFT
key then hit ENTER.

```IFERROR was introduced in Excel 2007... it is not available in Excel 2003.

You need to use ISERROR with IF to get similar functionality
IFERROR( Your formula, value if error )
use

How to refer to current sheet in a formula
I want to have a named formula which always refers to a cell on the sheet it is on. When I define the formula it is automatically changed to refer to the sheet active when I defined it. E.g. =\$B\$2*3 becomes =sheet1!\$B\$2*3. This is no good for use on sheet 2 where I want the formula to refer to that sheet's \$B\$2 (equivalent of sheet2!\$B\$2). I have tried entering =!\$B\$2*3 which works initially but recalculates using the \$B\$2 on the sheet active when the recalculation is done. -- Poxypig ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Poxypig's Profile: http:/...
