Hi

I am trying to set up a formula which will calculate the highest average of 3 consecutive salaries using only the last 13 year salary history - from a table consisting of 2 columns a) Year b) Salary.

Any help will be appreciated.

:biggrin:

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

Hi, DEH
Welcome to the Board !!!!!
this part is not clear to me
using only the last 13 year salary history
but this could be a start
{=MAX(A2:A7+A3:A8+A4:A9)/3}
(confirm this array-formula with SHIFT-CONTROL-ENTER)
Map1.xls
ABCD
142
216
316
44
544
638
744
84
94
data (2)


kind regards,
Erik

Try the following array formulas that need to be confirmed with CONTROL+SHIFT+ENTER, not just ENTER...

=MAX(SUBTOTAL(1,OFFSET(B1:B20,ROWS(B1:B20)-ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&13-2)),0,-3)))

or

=MAX(SUBTOTAL(1,OFFSET(B1:B20,ROWS(B1:B20)-ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&D1-2)),0,-3)))

...where D1 contains the number of years of interest, such as 13. Adjust the range accordingly.

Hope this helps!
