Do you know how much a client feels belittled by misleading (overly

would have been more useful.
I can't write one tutorial for each client. I just wanted to indicate
that Michael doesn't have to deal with convoluted formulas when he
adjusts himself to the mere basics of the given simple tool. For more
convenience (and for untrained users) there are more sophisticated tools
such as input forms bound to databases.
Something like INDEX(OFFSET(COUNTA)) is not reliable enough because it
assumes no gaps. The second shaky assumtion is that the area below the
assumed list is always completely blank.
The concept of a manual sort order where the editor of a list has to
append/insert at particular positions is highly questionable. Any order
of rows should be enforcable by a defined sort order. If the order of
entry really matters, you've got to insert new data together with an
automatic time stamp.
