Can anybody help,

I'm trying to show a trend or a forecast but I'm doing something wrong :oops: because I keep getting #Value as a result. Can I adjust a forecast to show a 25% drop in figures over a period of month.

I would be eternally Grateful :pray:

I have changed all of the month field to numeric

Also I have tried the formula without showing H:J but to no avail
=TREND(C3:G3,C2:G2,)
