Customer Question

Just need a short response to this question:

As you can change the values used in your formulas by changing cell values (cells where the numbers are stored - remember you use cell references in your formulas, not numbers), what kind of business advantage(s) can this give you? Why? What is the business world name of this use?

Hello again,


Are you sure the question at the end belongs to the cell referencing issue? There does not seem to be a relation between the two. Could you check and confirm



Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Yes, thats the entirety of the question

Disregard this because it's too late for me to submit anyway. In the future please refrain from responding to a question you don't have the answer for, so that someone else may answer it.

I am sorry I will opt out so the question becomes open to all experts
