Above is a 60 cell example of what I'm doing. Sheet1 is my main sheet and I use Sheet2 as a updating sheet. I'm using the INDIRECT function so that I can switch between different main sheets. Basically I'm trying to incert a new figure and move all the others one space to the left when a condition is met. Starting in B2 Sheet2 is this formula. It is dragged over and down.

The formula calculates the difference between 2 dates on Sheet1, (cells BK2 and BL2). If the difference between the two dates is 12 months or greater it returns the next cell to the right. If an error or less than 12 months it returns the current figure, (stays the same). Because of the large number of INDIRECT function (20 million) it calculates extremely slow. Can anyone think of a way of updating and moving a group of cells to the left when certain conditions are met?
