Hallo,

I would simply like to sum G2:G(x).

I want to make use of a formula to calculate what x should be and have actually developed the following two ways:

=ADDRESS(MATCH(F1,A1:A337,0)+11,7,4)
="G"&MATCH(F1,A1:A337,0)+11

So x will obviously differ, depending on what F1 is. My problem is that when you substitute any of these formulas in the SUM equation, it doesn't work.

Can anyone please help?

Thanks!

Don't you just hate it when you post something after hours of trying to get it to work, and as soon as you have posted it, you find the solution yourself...

I'm just making use of the indirect formula to make it work.

If anyone can figure out a simpler way, please feel free to indicate what that would be.

Thank you!

Maybe try:

=SUM(INDIRECT("G2:G"&MATCH(F1,A1:A337,0)+11))

or the non-volatile:

=SUM(G2:INDEX(G:G,MATCH(F1,A1:A337,0)+11))
