XL: Iteration May Not Be Calculated Correctly

SYMPTOMS

When you use circular reference formulas in a worksheet, the resulting
values may be incorrect; it may appear that Microsoft Excel did not perform
the specified number of iterations.

CAUSE

This problem may occur if the following conditions are true:

  • You select the Iteration check box on the Calculation tab (click Options
    on the Tools menu).

    -and-


  • You type a formula that gets a starting value from another cell and
    creates a circular reference.


    For example, this problem occurs when you type the following:
    A1: 10
    A2: =A3/10
    A3: =A1+A2
    -and-


  • You decrease the value in the starting cell (cell A1 in the example).

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products
listed at the beginning of this article. This problem has been corrected
in Microsoft Excel 97 for Windows.

MORE INFORMATION

box, follow these steps:
  1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  2. Click the Calculation tab.
