How to get cell coordinates?
As previously posted, I am trying to build a formula that updates its cell references automatically based on what line the formula is entered. My formula will be more complex but for the sake of simplicity, here's an example of what I'm trying to achieve...

Preferably, it is great for me to decide on how the reference is displayed, eg: - absolute (ie \$A\$1) or - column-absolute (ie \$A1) or - row-absolute (ie A\$1) - relative (ie A1) 2) Return cell reference(s) of the target eg: Type this formula in cell B1: =return_cell_reference(target_cell) {The above is a fictitious formula only} eg: =return_cell_reference(A3) Answer: A3 =return_cell_refe...

I have a function named mysub and with parameters that has to be supplied to the function. I want that when the cell where the function is to be inserted, the user can type the arguments of the function sub after they have run the sub.
