Using variable names for cells
I seem to remember a technique where I could assign a variable name to
the contents of a cell so that whenever I wanted to use the contents,
all I had to do was call up the variable name. Unfortunately I cannot
find the way to set up the process. Any suggestsions or ideas would be
appreciated. Thanks and a Happy New Year.

I am trying to write an average formula that takes into account the blank
I had only cells A2, A4, A6 filled out, but when I do =average(A1:A6), it is
not treating the blanks as zeros so the answer is much higher than it should
Should I do a logic formula within the cells?
If you know the range, you could do the division yourself:
But this would include other non-numeric cells in the count of cells (6), too.

Maybe you have a space before the = (Excel think it is text now)
