Diagonal Sum

Ever wanted to sum some cells in Excel, but with a twist. Sum cells diagonally top-to-bottom and vice versa, left-to-right and vice versa. This code will give Excel that ability. As with nearly all Custom Functions for Excel, it pays to keep the ranges used as small as possible.

Function SumDiagonal(rRange As Range, LrRl As String, Optional BsrtBottom As Boolean) As Single
