Hello LANCE,

that formula simply defines a range, it doesn't do anything with it....

If you want to AVERAGE the values in the range you can enclose it in an AVERAGE function, i..e

=AVERAGE(OFFSET('Executive Rollup Data'!BP60,0,MATCH(TODAY(),'Executive Rollup Data'!BP60:\$DT60)-2,1,1))

and you can do the same with COUNT, i.e.

=COUNT(OFFSET('Executive Rollup Data'!BP60,0,MATCH(TODAY(),'Executive Rollup Data'!BP60:\$DT60)-2,1,1))

COUNT just counts numbers, if you want to count any entries (numeric or text) switch to COUNTA

.....actually, I'm talking rubbish (wouldn't be the first time)

The OFFSET function is only giving you a single value so it won't make much sense to AVERAGE or COUNT that, can you explain what you want to do in a little more detail
