```Hi Mike, and Bob,
If you actually write the formula like that you will not be able to insert
rows or delete rows (or for that matter sort rows),    so ...

Would suggest using OFFSET in your formula,  but see

for some additional aspects that you might want to consider
for a checkbook balance.

text in formula
Help!!! Is there a way to have a formula where a cell with text is in it, but it is not included in the formula. Like I have a random cell that appears sometimes within the range but because it is text and I do not want to include it in the formula. Is there a certain "symbol" that could be used? HELP!! Hi maureen, It depends on what the actual formula is, but *some* functions ignore text entries. You could use the ISNUMBER function to include only those entries that are numbers.

Copying formulas to another worksheet

Thanks When you paste a formula it relatively changes the cell references to suit where you have pasted it to. EG. If you pasted =sum(P1:P3) from cell P4 to cell B4 it would change to =sum(B1:B3). However, if you pasted it to cell B2 it could not reasonably change the references. If you are pasting because you...
