Greetings from the future, Tom and Melanie :)

Your solution was helpful here, thanks Tom, and it was an early reference in the results from my search, so many more people may continue to find it.

Unfortunately, you made an error in your advice, Tom; it may not have been Melanie's not having the analysis toolpak that caused her error.

You gave a circular reference in one of your formulae, something that Excel 2003 may not warn against.

You said at one point:

'and in C2 you put in


That's C2 referencing itself rather than B2.

When it's fixed, it works as intended ..of course.
