(/thread-21830.html) Calculate average, ignore zero ('0')? - El Forum - 08-21-2009 [eluser]mvdg27[/eluser] Hey guys, not directly CI related .. but does anyone know how to calculate the average of a column, but ignoring the zero values? So imagine: 10, 8, 6, 0, 4 => average = 28 / 5 = 5.6 Instead I would like: 10, 8, 6, 0 (ignore this value!), 4 => average = 28 / 4 = 7 I'm using MySql. Thanks, Michiel Calculate average, ignore zero ('0')? - El Forum - 08-21-2009 [eluser]Dam1an[/eluser] This should do it just select anything greater then 0 for the AVG Code:`SELECT AVG(`number`) FROM test WHERE `number` > 0` Calculate average, ignore zero ('0')? - El Forum - 08-21-2009 [eluser]renownedmedia[/eluser] Maybe use NULL's instead of 0's
