Calculates the number of permutations containing a chosen number of objects out of a given total number of objects, with repetition permitted.
Returns a positive integer which is the number of permutations for a chosen number of objects, Count2, out of the total number of objects, Count1 where repetition is allowed.
Count1 is an integer value or a reference to the cell containing that value which is the total number of objects.
Count2 is an integer value or a reference to the cell containing that value which is the number of objects in each permutation.
- If either Count1 or Count2 is negative then the function returns an error value.
- If Count1 or Count2 are non-integer value then they are truncated to integers.
- The formula for PERMUTATIONA is: Count1Count2
- Unlike PERMUT, which doesn't allow Count2 greater than Count1, PERMUTATIONA allows this case and returns a value calculated using the above formula.

|=PERMUTATIONA(7;3)||From a group of 7 items, a sequence of 3 can be picked in 343 ways with repetition allowed.||343|
|=PERMUTATIONA(7.6;3)||From a group of 7 items (floor value is taken), a sequence of 3 can be picked distinctly in 343 ways with repetition allowed.||343|
|=PERMUTATIONA(0;0)||From a group of 0 items, a sequence of 0 can be picked in only 1 way.||1|
|=PERMUTATIONA(11;-2)||Cannot pick a negative number of items hence the function returns an error value.||Err:502|
|=PERMUTATIONA(11;14)||This function allows the case where Count1 is smaller than Count2.||379749833583241|
