Seems percentages are covered pretty thoroughly. "Part" is another percentage unit - it will return a value between 0 and 1.Doug

There is a lot between 0 and 1. 0,1 0,2 will give you 10 items.0,01 0,002 will give a 100. As it has to do with percentage I suppose the latter will be the case or does that depend on the var you are applying it to?Roelof

FS can compute th x-y values for the values between the ones you set. Typical would be the folowing use of Part in a fuel gauge(A:Fuel tank left main level,part)Peter (I've learned JUST enough now to be able to help others :) )

Hi Peter,>You don't need many values. FS can compute th x-y values for>the values between the ones you set. Very useful for sliders etc. Tried it for the first time yesterday.Works like a charm.Roelof
