# Formula help

I'm trying to create a single sheet that has multiple audits from 4 facilities. I am finding problems in trying to have smartsheet count the amount of cycles in the audit. The information is being input through the web forms so new rows are being created constantly, and the information needs to run through the sort filter once completed. My main issue is that if I use the column select function [EX:   =avg(row:row) ] to select the whole column I can't have it change when new rows are added. ex of what I need =avg(row1:row) so the new information added doesn't effect the old columns.  In excel I would just use 1,048,576 as the maximum, but in smartsheet the maximum is fluid. Any help would be appreciated.

This is the formula I wish would work in my system (input on first line)

=IF(Plant1 = "DM", ROUND((COUNTIF(Plant1:Plant, "DM") / 9) - 0.5000001, 0), IF(Plant1 = "DF", ROUND((COUNTIF(Plant1:Plant, "DF") / 6) - 0.5000001, 0), IF(Plant1 = "VF", ROUND((COUNTIF(Plant1:Plant, "VF") / 6) - 0.5000001, 0), IF(Plant1 = "CORP", ROUND((COUNTIF(Plant1:Plant, "CORP") / 4) - 0.5000001, 0)))))
