This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it

Discuss:

You need to use MiddleValues with this function rather than MiddleWords. MiddleWords removes decimal points for non integer values.

Let ([
count = WordCount ( valueList ) ;
odd = MiddleValues ( valueList ; Truncate (count/2;0) +1 ; 1 );
even = MiddleValues ( valueList ; Truncate(count/2;0) ; 1 )
];
Case(
Mod ( count ; 2 ) ; odd ; (even+ odd) / 2
)
)

Important to note in the description: "ValueList must be sorted in ascending order." I use the revised version that replaces MiddleWords with MiddleValues, and I use one of the other sort functions on this site as the first item in the Let statement to first sort valuelist , so:

Let ([
valuelist = SortValues (valuelist; 1);
count = WordCount ( valueList ) ;
odd = MiddleValues ( valueList ; Truncate (count/2;0) +1 ; 1 );
even = MiddleValues ( valueList ; Truncate(count/2;0) ; 1 )
];
Case(
Mod ( count ; 2 ) ; odd ; (even+ odd) / 2
)
)
