I have a list containing 4 weeks worth of daily sales for several items. I would like to find the 5 consecutive days with the greatest amount of sales during those 4 weeks. Is there a formula that can help. I can find the 5 largest days no problem I just can't figure out how to get the largest 5 consecutive days total. So one item may have sold the most on days 21,22,23,24,25 while another may have been on 5,6,7,8,9. Any help would be appreciated

What is the shortcut key for Format Selection?
Ctrl+1 (the number one) will open the Format dialog for whatever is selected.

I hope this can help. Let's say that column A is your date. Column B is your item count or sum. Create column C = TOTAL and copy your date column to D (for vlookup purposes).

In column C, on the first date, create the formula =b7+b8+b9+b10+b11 and copy it down through your last date. Then, do =MAX(c3:C33). In column D, next to your Max number, do a vlookup for that TOTAL to bring in the DATE and do formula =d34+1 and copy that for four rows down.

Hopefully this pastes well enough to understand what I mean:
