In the example shown, the formula in D5 is: The SORT function returns 10 sorted results. Even though the formula is entered just once in cell D5, all 10 values “spill” into the range D5:D14 automatically. The range of results returned by a formula that spills is called a spill range. When something on the worksheet blocks a spilled array formulas, it will return a #SPILL! error. Author
