Hi all,
I have an Excel 2000 worksheet with VBA code behind it. This code calculates different values etc. It appears to give back different answers on some machines and not on others ???
Someone mentioned to me that there was a patch I should run as it could be a win NT problem. Can anyone throw any light on this for me ?

I'm desperate
Paul

Hi,

You need to provide more information; "appears" isn't specific. Perhaps Excel's default settings are different!

Enjoy.
