    Find first cell greater than 0 THEN calculate average and std from that cell to the end

    I couldn't figure out how to complete this task. I looked around and all the formulas that i have seen only return the value of the that not necessarily the address.

    Here is what i'm trying to do
    1. Find the first cell with a value higher than "0"
    2. Then use that cell address as a starting point for the "average" and "standard deviation" calculations

    I have attached a file as to what I would like to do.
    Column G should return the address of the first cell with value higher than 0. Then column H and I uses the column G value to calculate.

    Thank you so much for all your help!

    In row 2

    Average
    =AVERAGE(INDEX(B2:F2,MATCH(TRUE,INDEX(B2:F2>0,0),0)):F2)

    Stdev
    =STDEV(INDEX(B2:F2,MATCH(TRUE,INDEX(B2:F2>0,0),0)):F2)
    Life's a spreadsheet, Excel!
