Look into Linest or better still various post by David Braden on the
subject.

If you particularly want to replicate your own trendline's formula you could
try something like this - parses the formula of trendline(1) in series 1 to
a cell formula.

start by selecting a cell offset one to right of the first value you want to
calculate

Sub GetFormula1()
Dim sFormula As String
Dim ser As Series
Dim tLine As Trendline
Dim cht As Chart, sNum As String
Set cht = ActiveSheet.ChartObjects(1).Chart
Set ser = cht.SeriesCollection(1)
If ser.Trendlines.Count = 1 Then
Set tLine = ser.Trendlines(1)
tLine.DisplayEquation = True
If tLine.DisplayEquation Then
sNum = tLine.DataLabel.NumberFormat
tLine.DataLabel.NumberFormat = "0.00000000000000E+00"
sFormula = tLine.DataLabel.Text
tLine.DataLabel.NumberFormat = sNum
sFormula = Application.Substitute(sFormula, _
"y = ", "")
sFormula = Application.Substitute(sFormula, _
"x", "*" & ActiveCell.Offset(0, -1).Address(0, 0) & "^")
sFormula = Application.Substitute(sFormula, _
"^ ", " ")
ActiveCell.Formula = "=" & sFormula
End If
End If
End Sub

In xl2K+ can use Replace iso Application.Substitute

In a long discussion last year it became clear that the formula is useless
without a high degree of precision.
