A formula in one cell is not allowed to directly change any other cell.

No longer true. It used to be that entering:


...would only enter "A" in the cell the formula was entered in. It could be array-entered over a range that would allow it fill a 1-row by 2-column range.

With recent changes, it now allows the formula entered in one cell to "spill" into the other cells if necessary and allowable. That is, it's no longer necessary to array-enter formulas over a range. The formulas can do it automatically.
