When constructing fairly hefty compound Array Formulae, what is the best way of testing them for syntactical correctness (braces, etc) before they get added to the code and cause errors? I know I can put them back into Excel directly in some cell so as the parser can take a look at typos, but is there a better way? Thanks all.

Ah, right.

Do you happen to know what type of typos  - if any - that it isn't able to spot?

It will catch all syntax errors, but not typos in named ranges etc. unless you type it in the cell instead of pasting it, in which case it should catch everything.
