Do you have in some cell a formula like: Code:
=A2B2 When it is a formula described above, then: Question1: Why B2=999 as border value? Why not 1000? With this rule, there will never be result <997 when A2=1  is this OK? Question2: When B2<999, must be result always be the difference calculated, i.e. 1998 =997, or 2998=996 (i.e. with A=2 the result will never be <996), or 2995=993? Will 3998=995 be right answer? And does this mean, with A2=3, the result can never be less than 995? Question3: What must be result, when A2=3, and B2=999? The result can't be 4!
