I'm trying to sum up a range that is selected using an offset variable...tried this:

ActiveCell.Value = Application.WorksheetFunction.Sum(ActiveCell.Offset(0, -ColCalcNum).Address & ":" & ActiveCell.Offset(0, -1).Address)

Can't quite get the correct Syntax for this, or for the "Activecell.Formula = ..." method. Any suggestions?

Waterfall charts in Excel?
Office 365 customers have access to Waterfall charts since late 2016. They were added to Excel 2019.

The help file is incorrect
You will need to use an object range for this

eg
<pre/>
Dim MyRg as Range

Set MyRg = Range(ActiveCell.Offset(0, -ColCalcNum).Address & ":" & ActiveCell.Offset(0, -1).Address)
ActiveCell.Value = Application.WorksheetFunction.Sum(MyRg)
MsgBox ActiveCell.Value

</pre>
