Note: This can only be used in cell formula, not column formula.

Some functions don’t support using range string. e.g. Can’t use total(A$ + “!” + B$). In such cases, first call mkrng() to generate a range variable and then use it as an argument in a function.

mkrange() is defined as follows in ORGSYS.CNF

function range mkrng(string str)
    range rr = str$;
    return rr;
