    Evening all,

    I know =NOW and =TODAY are termed volatile and I read recently that =ROW and =COLUMN are to a certain extent

    is =INDIRECT also volatile ?

    I recently posted an =INDIRECT with two =ROW functions solution which was copied to nearly 4000 rows but when I hit F9, it still just took a milli-second to calculate

    I've been using INDIRECT a lot, and hadn't thought if it might affect performance....

    thanks
    Chris

    Yes, INDIRECT is volatile. Too many of them will cause expanding recalc times.
