      Description

      Under 4.10.5 we say:

      "The range is generated from the corresponding column respectively row intersecting an area directly below respectively right of the label cell that is constructed by encompassing contiguous cells. A blank cell interrupts contiguousness, one blank cell directly below respectively right of the label cell is ignored."

      Four questions:

      1) Is the intent of this statement that a contiguous range of cells is selected and as each value for a column/row is passed, the column/row label attaches to the next cell in line. Yes?

      2) What happens if there is a blank cell that interrupts contiguousness?

      3) Can anyone suggest a re-writing of this that doesn't use "corresponding" and "respectively"?

      4) Looking at the examples, how does the blank cell in row 2 qualify as "one black cell below respectively right of the label cell"? I am assuming that row 1, column Data is the label cell.

      Do we need these examples? For that matter are they consistent with the text?
