    How to extend a changing multi cell array formula down a column.

    Hiya!

    Essentially I am trying to format some data that I have collected in 30min increments. The data needs to be changed over to 5min increments so I am simply averaging out each value by dividing the original data by 6. I have been using an array formula where I divide a number in one cell input it into 6 other cells. Unfortunatly I have hit an impass when I try to extend the formulas downwards in the column. Unlike the usual extend functionality the simple act of selecting the array and then pulling down on the box in the right hand corner doest work. (PLEASE SEE ATTACHED DOC - IT IS MUCH CLEARER THERE) The issue is that the cell that the array formula is based on doesn't seem to track with the extend functionality.

    So any help would be greatly appreciated, and if you can think of an easier way of doing things then by all means, I am ALL ears!

    Kind Regards

    Your time increments seem to be going up in 1 day and 5 minute increments.

    Put this formula in E2:

    and this one in F2:

    then copy both down. No need to array-enter.

    Hope this helps.

    The five minute increments you have listed in column E are actually 1 day and 5 minute increments. Assuming this was a mistake, and the date was meant to be the same (just the time was to increment), then try using this non-array formula:
