Hi all,

I have a formula that pull back the median from a list of values:

=MEDIAN(IF('Median Gender Pay Gap'!N:N='Median Analysis'!G$4,'Median Gender Pay Gap'!AI:AI))

In order for to work I need to add the brackets back in: (like below)


{=MEDIAN(IF('Median Gender Pay Gap'!N:N='Median Analysis'!G$4,'Median Gender Pay Gap'!AI:AI))}

I think I need to highlight the formula and click one of the F buttons, but not sure which one? Can anyone help plz?

Links? Where??
If Excel says you have links but you can't find them, go to Formulas, Name Manager. Look for old links to dead workbooks & delete.

to input the formula without the {}, and instead of enter, press Control-shift-enter together

the {} should added automatically if done right

You dont type those {} brackets in. Paste the formula into the cell then press CTRL-SHIFT then ENTER.
