Thanks, ***** ***** it, can you explain what you want to achieve please

Row 92 of Columns D, F, H have weighted average calculations based upon the 2015 sales data. Beginning in Column K we are tracking converted accounts and the comparison data to previous "CSP", COGS, and "MARGIN" - Columns L, N, and P. As you can see Row 92 contains the same weighted average calculation for the new data. Row 93 Column R, S, and T shows a comparison of new versus old.
The problem is Column R,S and T Row 93 is comparing the converted accounts to the whole population of the old data.
I would like a formula that uses weighted average to compare the converted accounts to only the historical data for those accounts. Not the entire population

Also as I add data to the right had side for converted accounts it will automatically track and keep a running calculation

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
but only use the rows with data in columns K-Q
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
as I add more data into the additional rows of K-Q the formula will update
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

sorry but the explanation is not helpful at least for me as I do not even see half the data sets your referring to. May be a limitation with me

Ill opt out, another expert will take over. You do not need to do anything, you will be notified when this happens.
