Hi,
I am sure there is a really simple solution to this one.
I have a cell that equals an average, eg =Average(C5:C10), which i have
filled for about 400 rows. I want to easily have one cell where i can edit a
value, say from 5 to 10, which would then increase the difference between C5
and C10 to C5 and C15. I am pretty new to excel, dont have much of an idea,
but i would like to avoid having to refill every time i want to change that
value.
I attemped =average(C5:C(5+A1)) where A1 equaled the value, but that just
returned with an error.
Any help is appretiated
