=PERCENTILE.EXC(IF(Test=1,'Input - D1'!$W$8:$AH$107),'S7 - Product Risk Scenario'!S7)

Hi,

I am using this formula to calculate some percentiles.

I want to make the range dynamic, can someone show how?

Many thanks

How will the range be dynamic?

Will the no of columns change or the no of rows change, or both?

Go to Formulas tab, Define Name,

Enter a name you want then in source field enter formula:

=OFFSET('Input - D1'!$W$8,0,0,COUNTA('Input - D1'!$W:$W),12)

This assumes that column W has now blanks within the desired range.

Now replace the range with that named range..

e.g.

=PERCENTILE.EXC(IF(Test=1,MyRange),'S7 - Product Risk Scenario'!S7)

where MyRange is then Dynamic Named range name

If still having error, please post workbook sample.

That was a mistake, i was meant to allocate points, it works fine, i got rid of counta and set up a dynamic range for my first named range test and it was all good!

Thanks
