    Hi Dak! and welcome to the forum,

    Excel is a great tool if you know how to use it. It likes TABLES of data. You have a blank column C which isn't allowed in a TABLE. It also looks like you either have a merged group of cells in Column 2 and or 1. This also creates a problem for accomplishing your task.

    See http://www.excel-easy.com/data-analysis/tables.html

    On dealing with tables (with no blank rows or columns) and see if you can make your problem easier.
    One test is worth a thousand opinions.
