# Array formula on Pocket PC

E

#### Eric G

Hello,

I'm trying to get an array formula to work on my WM2003SE pocket pc.
Right now if I put the cursor in the edit box and hit CTRL-SHFT and
Enter I don't get curly brackets in the formula and it gives results
in the cells such as #VALUE!.

Please tell me "no problem, here's how to fix that"
rather than "sorry you can't do that with pocket excel on pocket pcs".

First I tried just copying the spreadsheet from my desktop to the
pocket pc but the formulas didn't transfer, so I painstakingly entered
them manually.

Sorry to disappoint you but array formulas don't work on pocket Excel

Well that's really a shame. I guess it shows what MS thinks of pocket
Excel users in general.

Anyways, what workaround might be used to calculate the following
formula in pocket Excel?

{=AVERAGE(IF((C4:M4<>"")*(C\$2:M\$2<>""),C4:M4/C\$2:M\$2))*100}

Thanks!

Although I have a pocket pc I never really use excel except when I first got
it and soon realized it was of little help but in general you have to use
multiple formulas, i.e.

=IF(AND(C4<>"",C2<>""),C4/C2)

copy across 6 columns

assume you put that and copy across from C8 to H8 thus instead of using an
array calculate each cell individually, then finish off with

=AVERAGE(C8:H8)*100

which should give the same answer
