How can I "un'-Array a formula in a range of cells?

Currently, I have a range of cells containing an array formula, and I want to make it a plain formula for all the cells.  Is there a way to highlight the range and then "un"-Array the formula in all the cells?  Everything I try gives me error message: "You cannot change part of an array".

Thanks, --Andres

That would imply that you are not changing all the cells. When you have selected all of them, and edited the formula, you need to use Ctrl+Enter rather than just Enter to commit the change.

Hi,

Here are some methods how can you highlight cells where there are array formulas.
The simplest is Ctrl-G (or F5) Special..>Current array>ok

You need to select the whole array and delete it. After it you can write your plain formula.
