I have a need to create a template worksheet for use of calculating the average rating of some KPIs. On the template, I have created a formula which restricts the calculation to just a particular number. This number could increase depending on the department using the template. E.g., if I have say 4 different ratings on the template, the calculation will be based on those 4 ratings i.e =(4+4+4+4)/4.

What I would love to have on the template is the flexibility to increase the number of rows so that other indicators can be added to it which would then be used for the average calculation. E.g. though the template has just 4 rows, and calculation is based on those four rows, i want someone to be able to increase the number of rows to say 8 and then the average rating would automatically be calculated based on the 8 ratings.

The worksheet template is protected and formula is hidden so individuals can't make the changes themselves. That's why I'm wondering if there's anyway to make the template flexible.

Find attached a sample file.

Thanks!

Have you tried using the AVERAGE() function?  It will average the numeric values in the indicated range, and ignore blanks and non-numbers (but will include zeroes).

Hi, thanks for this information. It works. But I have another challenge. There are different KPAs to be calculated and their averages are all on the same column. if extra rows are added above the row that the average function ends, how will the calculation be done?
Attached is a file that explains.
Thanks

Usually, rounding is performed by some power of 10 - to thousands, hundreds, tens, or integer - or to one, two, or more decimals. But rounding can also be done to a power of two, say, 16 or 64, or 1/32 or 1/1024, even for extreme values.
