    True enough. I read the question as needing that part implied so it would pick it up automatically though.

    Thanks Ken,

    As I suspected at the outset it clearly can't be done without that extra column of preliminary calculations, but at least I now have a better grasp of using an array formula.

    Oh, I don't know about that. Every time I say something can't be done, someone comes along and does it. There are some real masters of formulas out there who can do some pretty cool things. I just find it easier with the helper column.
