# Formula Help

I have a formula in a column in cell B2 that looks at cell D2 in another workbook and in cell B3 I want it to look down 8 rows to D10 then in B4 I want it to look down another 8 rows to D18 etc. Is there a way to do this? I tried using the fill option and a few other things with no luck.

Thanks

How to total the visible cells?
From the first blank cell below a filtered data set, press Alt+=. Instead of SUM, you will get SUBTOTAL(9,)

You could use one of the following aproaches:

B2=INDEX(WorkbookReference\$D\$2:\$D\$1000,1+8*(ROW()-ROW(\$B\$2))

B2=OFFSET(WorkbookReference\$D2,7*(ROW()-ROW(\$B\$2))

Copy down this formula and it should work. You can change the \$D\$1000 reference to fit your data.

ABCD
2111
3992
417173
525254
633335
741416

Thanks, I didn't realize my excel skills were this poor that I can't even apply your suggestions but I am looking forward to the teachings that trial and error will bring.
