Returns the subset of an array of cells.

## Syntax

**NxSubset**(

**X**, start, finish, keepNA)

- X
- is the input data set (a one-dimensional array of cells (e.g., rows or columns)).
- Start
- is the first element index from the beginning of X (positive value) or the end of X (negative value). If missing, start = 1.
- Finish
- is the last element index in X from the beginning of X (positive value) or the end of X (negative value). If missing, end = the last element in X.
- KeepNA
- is a flag for leaving (or purging) observations with missing values (e.g., #N/A, #VALUE!, #NUM!, or empty cell) found in the input data set. If missing, keepNA = False.

## Remarks

- The input data set may include empty and missing values.
- The input data set may span multiple rows and/or columns, but the result is always a one-dimensional array (i.e., a column).
- If keepNA is set to False (0), observations with missing values (e.g., #N/A, #VALUE!, #NUM!, or empty cell) in the input data set are purged prior to selecting the subset.
- Positive values of the start and finish indices are relative to the beginning of the data set. For example, setting start = 5, would be evaluated as the 5th element in the array.
- Negative values of the start or finish indices are relative to the end of the data set. For example, setting start = -1 would be evaluated as the last element, start = -5 would be the 5th element before the end of the array.
- In the case where the start index is negative and the finish index is positive, then function append the results of [Start, end] + [start, Finish].
- The function NxSubset has been revised in NumXL MARTHA 1.67.
