The 25,000 cell reference limit is puzzling


Dear Smartsheet:

I am a bit confused by the 25,000 cell reference limit.  In my specific case I am simply trying to VLOOKUP from a table where I have 700 rows and 17 columns.  That equals 11,900 cells which is less than 25,000 cells. 

So, why am I getting this error?  It creates an incredible amount of frustration and dissatisfaction with your product. 

Please help.
