    For Excel Ninjas Only --Plus anyone else who is REALLY up for a challenge... :)

    A1:A5 contains your values: 23, 46, 67, 12, 56 This formula calculates how much you need to add to each value to reach 250: =(250-SUM(A1:A5))/COUNTA(A1:A5) Add this to each cell's value to get the new value, i.e. in cell B1 put "=A1+((250-SUM(A1:A5))/COUNTA(A1:A5))" Does that work for you?
