I got it. So this was the formula I created for you before. So now you want to exclude 0s, that means, you will enter 0, you want to NOT include it thus you need to start in the next cell. Correct?

For instance, in your sample the cells have values:

0 1 3 2 2

Since 0 is counted, the formula calculates 0+1+3+2 = 6.

Now you want it to be 1+3+2+2 = 8.

Is that correct?
