I have developed a spreadsheet which contains a sheet for the cover
and basic information as well as one sheet for every month. There is
a cell with a number on every sheet at location H35. I want the
average of all of those which are not zero on the first sheet. I
initially tried using "AVERAGEIF(January.H35:December.H35, ">0")",
but it keeps giving me error 504.
This sounds a bug: AVERAGE() works on a cross-sheet range, so I don't
see why AVERAGEIF() shouldn't.
I then tried the formula below, ...
Er, I don't see a formula below ...
... which uses COUNTIF, but the part with COUNTIF in it causes a 504 also.
Isn't that also a bug?

One way would be to add a second cell to each sheet, say H36, that
has a simple "IF(H53>0,1,0)", then on the cover sheet your formula
could be something like
Of course you would need to type in all the actual cell references
instead of the ellipses.
Since SUM() *does* work on cross-sheet ranges, you could simplify this to
Maybe someone else knows a way to do it using existing functions, ...

Well I have designed the sheets to be printed at the end of each
year, so extra cells would not work.
That is no problem: the intermediate cells could be on other sheets
or simply outside the print range. Another way of using intermediate
values would be simply to have a range of twelve cells on your first
sheet that simply contain =January.H35 and so on. If preferred, this
range could be outside your print range - or even
hidden. AVERAGEIF() should then work straightforwardly on this range
Is there a reason that AVERAGEIF and COUNTIF will not work with data
on other sheets?
Not that I can see.
... is there any possible way to do this in LO?
This is a messy workaround, but it appears to work:
I trust this helps.
