Are you talking about the formulas in columns AI:AO, rows 9, 11 and 13.
What is the problem. What problem is it that you can't find. What do you mean more precisely by a huge dataset?

Hi XOR. Indeed, formulas in mentioned cells (AI:AO, R9-11-13) gives STDEV values much different from the 'real' stdev as mentioned in cells N:S, R 9-13. The real ones are based on a simple stdev formula from a particlar range while the former ones are based on a formula using criteri (B, H, 1, 6). I gues there must be something wrong with either formula or formatting of particular empty cells?
(The dataset in the Excel file is just a small piece of a big dataset, thats what I meant with huge)

Take a look here.
If you try for example the following formula: =LEN(Z4) you will get the result 1. I don't know what you have in Z4 (and others), but try to select X4:AD12, enter 1, hold down Ctrl (to put 1 in all those cells) then delete them again, and you should see TRUE in U4:U12 and you should see other StDev's.

Why I asked about the huge dataset was because it may be a problem with array formulas.

Agree but Stdev values are still very high and very different compared to the ones in cells N:S, R 9-13. There must be sonmething else wrong I guess.

What do you mean by still very high. Do you mean 0.08618 as calculated in AK9 is too high?

If you do as I mentioned in #4 you will get StDev between 0.06895 and 0.86500

correct, but this is when you exclude the blank cells! when you include blanks, SD will be 10x higher!

Degfinitely. The ones in N:S, R 9-13 are correct, I calculated these by hand as well.

I don't know what kind of dirt you have in sheet test, but if you can't use what I made in Sheet2 then I give up.
