Hi everyone,

below is what 'goflow' experienced with the attached file. If anyone knows how to solve this, please post.

The issue in on sheet 'Current Game 2' columns V and W. For some reason the formulas below will not work there.

The link to the original post is:

Thanks,

I added them in the attached file at the bottom of the table in the green section as I could not get the formula to display results in col VW like advised before.

 The formula for the team is
 =IF(INDIRECT("E" & 4*ROW(E5)-15)-INDIRECT("M" &4*ROW(M5)-15)<0,INDIRECT("B" & 4*ROW(B5)-15),INDIRECT("J" & 4*ROW(J5)-15))

 The formula for the results is
 =ABS(ROUND(INDIRECT("E" & 4*ROW(E5)-15)-INDIRECT("M" &4*ROW(M5)-15),2))&" - "&ABS(ROUND(INDIRECT("E" & 4*ROW(E5)-15+2)-INDIRECT("M" &4*ROW(M5)-15+2),2))

 When you fix the issue of getting the results in col V and W then you take these 2 formulas that you copy from here and paste into cell V6 and W6  and from there you drag them down.

I am not sure I follow. I took the formulas from the original post and copied them into V6 and W6, copied them down through V21 and W21, and the results were the same as Goglow had in the green section (E71-J82).

See attached.

Well What I noticed is that you need to delete the whole columns in this area where your table is like col S till AA as surely there are some old codes that are remembered by Excel somehow that is keeping formulas from displaying. and by putting the formula in the new columns created it will work fine.

here is the workbook attached.

Pony10us,

It seems you got the correct results. Don't know why though.

Goflow,

I had to delete an recreate the V:W to get this to work. But it did work.

Thanks,
Pedro

I don't know why either.  Just lucky that way sometimes.  :)

Glad you got it working though.
