A bit hard to answer the question, given the lack of specifics.

However, here goes. If your pivot values starts at E3, then this formula will give you the total of the last three months:

=INDEX(E3:IV3,0,COUNT(E3:IV3)-2)+INDEX(E3:IV3,0,COUNT(E3:IV3)-1)+INDEX(E3:IV3,0,COUNT(E3:IV3))

Therefore, you could put =2 or >=2 to that to get your condition.

Hi,

pls try

=SUM(OFFSET(B5:IV5,0,COUNT(B5:IV5)-3,1,3))>=2
