```Assuming that Column D contains no blanks, try...

=(PRODUCT(1+OFFSET(D1,MAX(0,COUNTA(D:D)-12),0,12,1)/100)-1)*100

...confirmed with CONTROL+SHIFT+ENTER.

Hope this helps!

I am creating a text file which has to be send for printing in DOS format. How do i set the font size. please help and guide me.

Mail Merge using Named Range in Excel
Having trouble completing a mail merge in Word using an Excel spreadsheet. In the spreadsheet there are named ranges, I have included the column headings by defining the range that is non-contiguous (not next to each other). When I go to complete the merge, the range will not show up as an option to use. If I re-define the range to not include the column headings and the range is a block of cells next to each other, the merge still doesn't work correctly, it assumes the merge assumes the row above the range is the column heading row (i.e. range is A16:J101, it uses row 17 as the column ...
