So, what formulas do you have in the cells AN9 and D9? Obviously something that, directly or indirectly, uses the values of cells A1 or A2. Lars�ke

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. I have another issue I just discovered. The page almost works perfect, but the problem is...what if both values in cell A1 and A2 are the same? Can we tweek your formula for these parameters? Example: I have 3 cells in a row. We'll call them cell A1, B1 & C1. I need a formula in cell C1 that is based on what is in cells A1 and B1. Example: 1  If there is a letter "A" in cell A1 or B1, then concatenate cells A1 and B1 in cell C1. 2  If there is number in cell 1 and 2, then sum cells A1 and B1 in cell C1. 3  If there are the same numbers in cell A1 and B1, then concatenate cells A1 and B1 in cell C1. You will note the additional parameter of the same number in both A1 and B1. That should do it. Again, thanks for looking at this for me.
