The cell's ordinal value uniquely identifies the cell within a cellset. Conceptually, cells are numbered in a cellset as if the cellset were a p-dimensional array, where p is the number of axes. Cells are numbered starting from zero in row-major order. Here is the formula for calculating the ordinal number of a cell:

The cell's ordinal value can be used with the Item property of the Cellset object to quickly retrieve the Cell.
