    Not boring me....  I went back and checked my Palm pilot's distance off
    formulas, I had some of the same troubles you had setting them up. I can
    email an Excel spreadsheet that has inputs for all the distance off
    parameters (height in feet, height by sextant, index error, height of
    eye in feet) and combines them to produce the distance off in nautical
    miles. I imported this spreadsheet into my Palm which has MiniCalc on it
    and it runs fine. Let me know if it would be helpful to you.
    
    Arthur.

    George,
    
    Thanks for the partial results.  With them I found a pure clerical error
    in
    my formula entry.
    
    Incidentally, I had intended my last note to go only to you, as it
    didn't
    seem of general interest.  But is seems you _are_ the list, at least
    from a
    'reply to sender' point of view.  Sorry if I'm boring others.
    
    Martin
