-The path of the Administrator is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

-Nothing\'s gonna get deleted. We\'re gonna be like three little Fonzies here. And what\'s Fonzie like? Come on, what\'s Fonzie like?
-Cool?
-Correctamundo. And that\'s what we\'re gonna be. We\'re gonna be cool. Now, I\'m gonna count to three, and when I count three, you let go of your mouse, and back away from the keyboard. But when you do it, you do it cool. Ready? One... two... three.

Just curious, but does anyone know if it is possible to do recursion on excel? There are a lot of easy problems they could ask us that are virtually impossible without recursion (e.g. factorials, prime factorization, perfect number, etc.) I've talked to all the programmers at my school, as well as my computer science teacher, and none of them have come up with anything.
Any thoughts/solutions?

My memory wants to make me believe recursion can be used, but I haven't used it (at lease not that I remember). It seems to me that it should be possible.

A quick Google search for "Recursion in Excel" turned up several possibilities. The page at http://faculty.wheelock.edu/dborkovitz/ ... k/alg3.htm may help to solve your examples.
