I have multiple, simple formulas in one spreadsheet. I would like to use:
=sum(A1:AX), =average(N1:NX), etc.
where "x" is the contents of another cell in the same worksheet. Thanks!!

Return population for a City
If you have a list of cities in A2:A100, use Data, Geography. Then =A2.Population and copy down.
Hi Mike

Welcome to the Board!

You can use INDIRECT:

=SUM(INDIRECT("A1:A" & B1))

Where B1 holds the row number you want to sum to. Same with Average.

Take a look at the INDIRECT function.

If you wanted to sum to whatever row was indicated in C4, it would look like:

=SUM(INDIRECT("A1:A"&C4))
