I have set up a scatter graph with y-axel error bars. When I added the error bars, there was multiple options to choose where the error values are taken from (single value, percentage etc.). I chose to use a cell area so I can use a cell to determine the current error rather than changing the properties of the error bars every time (like you'd have to do with single value). I thought that a single cell would do the trick for the entire data set that Im using to draw the graph from. Apparently every data point on the graph needs to have its own error bar value. As I have 5 points in my graph, I need 5 cells to assign each point the error bar value. How can I merge those 5 cells into 1 so all I have to do is to give a single value which will be used for all graph points? I could probably use some kind of conditional function or a replace-function but is there a cleaner way to do this? Thanks in advance.

Perhaps use this formula in rows 73 to 76 under the ±virhe column heading (I've assumed it is column B)...
 Code: =IF(B\$72="";"Enter error at B72";B\$72)
