    Hi

    What makes you believe the midpoint isn't being updated? It changes when I change the values in the relevant cells.
    Have you checked that Calculation is set to automatic and not manual?

    I've just looked at the OP's file and in cell C39 for example, in the Mid Point table, the hard coded formula is adding C$23 and C$27. If you add a sixth week figure to the Running table this isn't calculated as it now needs to reference C28. I wondering if that reference needs to be dynamic? Perhaps worboysn could clarify.

    Hi,

    In that case if it's the midpoint you wan in C39 should be

    and for simplicity I'd make C40 copied down =C39

    Yes, I guess that would be my assumption also.

    Re: help - graphs auto updating as new data comes in

    Thanks guys - its slightly different to the mid point (or median) which is causing me the difficulty - its literally the middle of the 1st and last weeks data that I'm after - so the 1st week will always remain constant but the last (or latest) weeks data will form the other side of the range for the mid point to be calculated on.

    Try the following in C39 across and down to J50:

    This sums the first week and the last week's entry and divides by 2. This assumes the weeks are entered in sequence without gaps.
