If you don't make it an array formula it will return false positives (like 9, 81, and 1681).

I'm definitely going to have to remember that technique in the future!<br />Though, as evidenced by the comments, that technique is extremely advanced (and thus confusing) for most people. Perhaps a link to a post with an explanation of the technique would help.Andrewhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/07597869303241688241noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7958828565254404797.post-1472010642886061182017-05-22T19:58:14.272-07:002017-05-22T19:58:14.272-07:00This comment has been removed by the author.TheLaziestWizardhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/18196662408777209396noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7958828565254404797.post-56296987025668539372017-05-22T19:56:05.106-07:002017-05-22T19:56:05.106-07:00This comment has been removed by the author.TheLaziestWizardhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/18196662408777209396noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7958828565254404797.post-1472524065009220622017-05-22T19:46:49.778-07:002017-05-22T19:46:49.778-07:00This comment has been removed by the author.TheLaziestWizardhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/18196662408777209396noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7958828565254404797.post-90076157646434041582017-05-22T19:44:47.434-07:002017-05-22T19:44:47.434-07:00This comment has been removed by the author.TheLaziestWizardhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/18196662408777209396noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7958828565254404797.post-35027662014045156492017-03-16T11:00:47.384-07:002017-03-16T11:00:47.384-07:00It says 'Not Prime' for 111,111,111.

The A2 reference makes no difference - a little investigation would have shown you that. And on that note, even if the formula wasn't directly translatable, would it really hurt to have to -gasp!- do a little of your own homework?
