Say if you have borrowed £100 with semi-annual amortisation over a period of 10 years, £5 is due in 6 months, another £5 in 1 year... another £5 in 9.5 years and the final £5 in 10 years.

In Excel use SUMPRODUCT function to multiply an array of maturities (0.5,1,...,9.5,10.0) by an array of debt sums (£5,£5,...,£5,£5). You'll then divide the result over the total amount (£100). The result should be 5.25 years.
