Hi there,
I can make a range dynamic by creating a table but i want to make a dynamic range that is the last 8 rows of a column, column B for example. The column is added to each week and i need to always refer to the last 8 rows, so that i can name the range and set it as a series in a chart.
As always your time is appreciated.

Assuming data in column B is continuous then something like:

=OFFSET(Sheet1!$B$1,COUNTA(Sheet1!$B:$B)-8,0,8,1)

Thanks for the quick response, I tried the offset thing but just couldnt get it to work. Yours, of course has the correct syntax.
Thanks again for your help
