I will show you a WS with several columns that have formulas to tabulate from other columns. Unfortunately, as they run down the WS where there's no data as yet you have zeros that are inhibiting me from doing the cross WS computations that I previously asked you about. How do I maintain the formulas In columns H,J,K,M and P and avoid the 0's down the sheet. I would like to keep the WS's as ranges.

It looks like all you need is a table. Formulas in tables will automatically fill down when you add new rows to the table, so there is no need to keep formulas outside the table as you have in your example.


You can see how to convert an ordinary range of cells into a table in the video lesson: Expert Skills Lesson 1-11 Convert a range into a table and add a total row.


I have attached a copy of your workbook with the table applied:
