Customer Question

i am looking for a way to keep a value that is a result of a formula from changing when the source information changes. Like a one time calculation based on the information source at the time. Then not change once that source info is updated so that it will allow me to get data that was pertinent only to the time it was enterd.

The only way to accomplish that is with a macro which will override what the formula returns

I can write a macro but you need to raise the question value and also send me the file
