Hi Aladin,

Once again, thanks for looking at my Attrition Report! Everything is working perfectly. We are curious here though...when I defined the name BigNum and assigned it this value: 9.99999999999999+307, what exactly is it doing?? It's returning the correct value....but how???!! We can't figure this one out!

Thanks again!!!
