    Angry #DIV/0! without any division!!!

    I have a column of calculated values (running averages). Actually I have many columns containing running averages.

    For each of the running averages (columns) I am trying to calculate the MIN, MAX, AVERAGE and find where the MIN and MAX are.

    This worked fine for all the columns of averages but one. In this one column I get the #DIV/0! error for every single value (MAX, MIN, AVG, and INDEX)!

    How can I get that error for a function that doesn't require any division? It worked and gave values for every column but one, and the column it didn't work for, is really no different than the others. I pasted the equations across all columns and the one in the middle shows only #DIV/0!. It seems like a glitch. How do I fix this?

    Thanks, it is quite frustrating.

    Attach a sample workbook. Make sure there is just enough data to make it clear what is needed. Include a BEFORE sheet and an AFTER sheet in the workbook if needed to show the process you're trying to complete or automate. Make sure your desired results are demonstrated, mock them up manually if needed. Remember to desensitize the data.

    Click on GO ADVANCED and use the paperclip icon to open the upload window.

    Thank-you Alansidman, but never mind!

    In deleting much of the data (there are over 26,000 rows) in order to make it smaller and more manageable to share, I realized that the error went away.

    By choosing different sizes and locations of arrays I was able to find where the problem was coming from - I had a #DIV/0! as one of my 26,000 values (very hard to find or notice) from the calculation of a running average for cells that were missing data.

    So, thank-you very much for your offer to help.

    I hope that my troubles may help someone else!
