CIRCULAR REFERENCE #3
How can I over come the problem of a circular reference on this typicaly
in cell C1 I type the following formula =a1/b1 and in cell D1. I type
=b1*c1, why this create a circular reference?
Are there formulas in A1 or B1 that somehow reference back
to C1 or D1?

I have a worksheet with a number of circular references. I have
iteration turned on, and it seems to do what I want. But, if I make
some particular mistakes (eg: entering really unreasonable data), I
get into a situation where most of the cells are #VALUE. The only way
I've found to clear this is to re-load a good copy of the sheet.
'Undo' has no effect.
Are there better ways to recover from this?
More generally: my knowledge of Excel is kind of spotty. I don't have

Is there a way to stop the Circular Reference Help to keep on popping up
when I create a formula that is indeed circular reference?

and it creates a circular reference. Now I am aware of where its happening
and I can correct them. But the help box is annoying me.

There is a formula called retail ratio which is Product
Sales divided by the sum of Product Sales and Service
Sales. or RR = P/(S+P). I am trying to create a "What
If" chart which would allow someone to plug in values for
the Retail Ratio. The Service Sales are also known.
What I am trying to do is to solve for what the Product
Sales would be. So RR and S are know but P is not.
Since it is both in the numerator and denomiator, I am
trying to come up with a formula that solves for this.
Here is what my chart looks like. Can someone help?

Sometimes I accidentally type a formula which sets up a circular reference. Excel brings up the Circular reference toolbar, and thats fine. However, Excel always wants to open Explorer and give me some help tips, which takes some time.

If I setup a data table as follows:
Then in B3 place the formulae A3+1 and copy it along to K3
And in A4 place the formulae A3+1 and copy it down to A13
Finishing off by selecting the range A3:K13 and
choosing Data->Table, Row input cell = A1, Column Input cell = A2
The results in the intersection start from 2 and end at 1.7E+11
Now if I Edit->Copy, PasteValues the formulae in cells B3:K3, and likewise

The following will not solve (or start to solve?):
I get this error on cells H4, J4, L4, and M4: #VALUE!
Sometimes J4 gets a #DIV/0! error.
I know this converges, as other programs using these formulae will converge.
Does excel assume 0 for inital guess? -this would explain the #DIV/0 error.
Is it posible to assign an initial guess for the cells in question?

B6 <- formala is =(B5=2)
B7 <- formula is =B5 (same as B4!!!)

contain the same formula. The result displayed depends on the position

I use a spreadsheet to track stock portfolios and determine stop orders. I

need to take the highest value of either (1) a certain percentage (say 15%)
of the cost basis, (2) a certain percentage (say 15%) of the current value,
or, (3) the last stop order price. Since stock prices fluctuate, the "last
