Problem with Excel Formula Calculation

Posted on 2011-10-23

I am working on an excel worksheet and I am encountering a circular reference error. I have attached the Excel spreadsheet. I encounter the problem when I change the formula in cell B8  to test for another condition (W8 <> 0) in the IF statement. The formula works fine until I add W8 to the statement.

    Try changing "Maximum iterations"
    "Calculation" tab
    Tick "Iteration"
    Set "Maximum iterations" [default 100] = 1000
    Set "Maximum change" [default 0.001] = 0.00001
