Excel Array formula issues

Hey guys

Hope you can help

I have an Excel workbook that tracks project progress for health and safety issues. This is made up of two sheets - the HSE sheet is full of data input for visual tracking purposes - the KPI sheet drags info from the HSE sheet into statistic form.

One of these statistics is a graph of open projects.

On the KPI sheet, the project tracker graph is made up of pulling data from Q16 to AK17. This is broken down from data and formulae in the cells above so that only open projects are recorded.

To obtain this, and here's the problem, there is an array formula in the KPI sheet from Q16 to AK16. I original had the data contained within columns Q and AK however as project work has expanded, the need to expand the data in the KPI sheet to include on the graph has become apparent.

To allow for this expansion, I had extrapolated the formulae out further to column BS in the cells above Q16 however, when I try and amend the array formula to pull from the new data range (the old was to column AK but now I need to go out to column BS), it either produces blank results or there are gaps in the graph which is what I want to avoid.

I have attached the example workbook with the sheet as it stands. I have not altered the array formula in the attached example as it currently shows how it should appear only the data is not going beyond column AK.

Is there a way of updating the array formula from Q16 to AK17 to include the new range (to column BS) and appear as it is in the example, with no gaps. I've tried to no avail.

Your help would be much appreciated.

Wow RG

Thank you so much this is amazing

Just one question how did you do this? When I tried it would leave blanks or sometimes no results and I even tried Find and Replace to no avail.

Could you give me some advice on how to alter this if it expands further?

Changed the formula in Q9:BT9
=IF(KPI!BV3<100,IFERROR(VLOOKUP(KPI!BT8,'HSE OIL LIST'!$B$3:$BC$30,20,FALSE),""))
