Error in Excel
I created a form that allows our CSR reps to enter in a set of fields and
based on the sequence of answers, a calculation in excel yields the Lead Level (whether it should go to a Jr. rep or a Sr. rep)  I have programmed in VB to pull the Lead Level back into a field on the form so the user doesn't have to ever see the workbook (for security purposes). It appears that the file can be opened, and updated but when they click submit, the calculation in excel does not work properly. i created the form on my 2007 computer but saved it as a 952003 version. Anyone in the office who has Microsoft 2007 can use the fomr successfully. but anyone with 2003 cannot. Please help!!! Here is the formula  it is referencing a sheet named "Matrix" which is in the same workbook, but hidden from users. The data that is entered goes into Columns AF and the calculation is placed in Column G: =INDEX(Matrix!G:G,MATCH(A2&B2&C2&D2&E2&F2, Matrix!A:A&Matrix!B:B&Matrix!C:C&Matrix!D&Matrix !E:E&Matrix!F:F,0))

Array formulas like this can't use entire columns until xl2007.

Thank you Dave:
Is it possible for me to change the formula so it just references a fixed set of cells, like: =INDEX(Matrix!G2:G34,MATCH(A3&B3&C3&D3&E3&F3, Matrix!A2:A34&Matrix!B2:B34&Matrix!C2:C34&Matrix!M atrix!D234&Matrix!Matrix!E2:E34&Matrix!Matrix!F2 :F34,0)) "Dave Peterson" wrote: Array formulas like this can't use entire columns until xl2007.

Just realized I copied the formula incorrectly  it should be this:
=INDEX(Matrix!G2:G34,MATCH(A3&B3&C3&D3&E3&F3, Matrix!A2:A34&Matrix!B2:B34&Matrix!C2:C34&Matrix!D 234&Matrix!E2:E34&Matrix!F2:F34,0)) But now when I enter this formula, it is no longer working  it is just appearing as text in the cell.....is there any way I can fix this, other than upgrading the other computers?

Your formula cell is Text format.
Format to General then hit F2 and ENTER to reenter the formula. If you have a great many of these use editreplace What: = With: = Replace all.

Did you remember to array enter the formula (ctrlshiftenter)?
If you did, then it's time to post the current formula. Victoria612 wrote: Thank you Gord  that fixed the formula showing as text, but unfortunately the formula itself is still returning an error....

I think so....
If you mean that after I enter the formula, instead of simply hitting "Enter" I have to hold down Ctrl&Shift&Enter and then let go, then yes, but that did nothing. (I wasn't sure what that meant, but I figured it was literal  Here is my current formula, with 'Matrix' being the worksheet being referenced: =INDEX(Matrix!G2:G34,MATCH(A2&B2&C2&D2&E2&F2, Matrix!A2:A34&Matrix!B2:B34&Matrix!C2:C34&Matrix!D 234&Matrix!E2:E34&Matrix!F2:F34,0)) Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.

Select the cell.
Hit F2 to edit the formula. Hit ctrlshiftenter instead of enter. If you do it correctly, excel will wrap curly brackets {} around your formula. (don't type them yourself.)
