We haven't had 11/11/11 yet(not till next Nov.) so one of your numbers is off. I know. Picky, picky me. But, I find this interesting. I think you meant 1/11/11 ? Debkcs has put out an interesting mathematical example. I love it! Now if we extrapolate to next year the numbers will be 112. However, this year those numbers work only if one was born before 2000. From 2000 to 2010 the number comes up from 1 to 11. No hundreds I can see. Still in the 1's. Which brings me to ask why? Hey! I'm just an extrapolating knitter. What do I know? Let's ask Debkcs! Hey Deb! You want to do some splainin'? By all means quote your source. Jean

No. I do mean 11/11/11. My comment wasn't in the past tense.

It is a little scary and reminds you of the power of computer code.

=rand(200,99) enter

In about 5 seconds 471 pages of text shows up. It appears to be the same group of paragraphs from the help files repeated again and again for 471 pages.
