Excel/football data


I Sir

I have some data that was extracted from the football-data website and sorted out

My question if its possible is for a macro that would be able to do the following:-

Select home team          Select away team
Arsenal          Chelsea

from the data and it must be able to display 6 matches and 10 matches

From the six or ten matches it must be able to calculate averages for the highlighted matches

I can supply you with the data

Thanx in anticipation


Raj Naransamy,

I am willing to take a look.  Make sure you indicate where you want the output and so forth and that your data is labelled.  Also, I assume the number of times the two teams played would dictate whether the result would show 6 or 10 matches - if that is not the case then you would need to explain how the number of matches to display would be determined.
