RE: Unary minus precedence preference
Seems unary minus being the Loch Ness monster of our forum: tends to appear every once and a while and is almost impossible to get rid of in times where news are scarce.

IIRC, we had a very similar thread recently. Anyway (and once more):
-2^2 = (-1)*2^2 = (-1)*4 = -4 , unambiguously.

And now you've learned that Excel is no real authority in mathematics (it was written for controllers, if that suffices as a reason).
