Cell Value as Named Range Reference
Little bit of a quirky question...
Trying to use a cell value as a reference in a formula, where that
cell value is the name of a named range.
So, assume A1:A3 is a named range: Rng1. And, B1:B3 is Rng2.
I want to get the correlation vale for A1:A3 and B1:B3
So, cell D1 contains "Rng1" and D2 has "Rng2"; and cell D3 has the
formula: =correl(D1,D2). But I get an error. Have also tried using
Indirect to no avail.
Any help would be hugely appreciated. Thank you.

"ste...draw random from normal distribution
for a little simulation i need to draw random numbers from a normal
distribution with a given mean (0.025) and std dev (0.3373).
Having read some earlier posts i tried =norminv(rand(), mean, std dev).
Apparently, this is not the right formula: it returns regularly values in the
50%s which should not happen from my 2.5% mean. I also found the box-muller
method. How could i transform the random draws from the standard normal
distribution into the ones i need?
Is there another formula i could use?
Thanks a lot in advance

I forgot to reverse an entry in 2003 and I closed 2004. I know that the
standard answer is that this type of error cannot be corrected; however it is
unacceptable to me that there is not a way in Great Plains to correct this.
Can we correct the transactions in the table?
The only way to do this would be to have MBS Professional Services open the
2004 back up for you so that you can post to 2003 and re-close 2004 when
done. This will cost you for their consulting time, but I believe this will
be less in the long run than trying to fix this yourself in the tables.

I've told Money to save the intermediary files, and I can see that the

I'm not sure of the proper way to record simple mutual fund purchase
transactions that are automatically paid from my primary checking. I find
that I have some transactions that are debit withdrawals from primary

bank. Others are recorded as transfers from primary checking to XXX Fund.
These all appear under XXX Fund(Cash). I also have one transaction recorded

is the 'R1C1 References Style' box checked?
If not, check it then save the workbook.

to reproduce behaviour:

2. activate circular references;
3. enter those formulas:

B5 <- formula is =1+SE(B6;0;1)
B6 <- formala is =(B5=2)
B7 <- formula is =B5 (same as B4!!!)
(NB: SE() this is the standard IIF() function in the italian version
What's wrong: B4 and B7, will display different results even if they
contain the same formula. The result displayed depends on the position
of the cell conataining the formula: if it is on the left or above B5
