Hi all:

It seems that after all, you had given the information I needed, but I did not recognize it ;) (still a bit asleep)

Using the harmonic mean formula provided, I finally get this formulae for n1 and n2:

k=n2/n1 (ratio)

n1=n*(1+k)/2k n2=n*(1+k)/2

If k=1 n1=2n/2=n and n2=2n/2=n If k=2: n1=3n/4 and n2=3n/2 If k=3: n1=4n/6 (2n/3) and n2=4n/2=2n

I have tested the macro with other sample size programs I know and it gives the expected results.
