moderated "R1C1 reference style". Be sure this box is not checked. RE: Need help with an Excel formula

Van Lant, Robin

It’s also good to note that formulas like this don’t work if your spreadsheet has gotten switched to R1C1 cell referencing.   This occasionally happens to me if I download a report from certain programs.  However it occurs, you can check and change this setting under File / Options / Formulas and tab to the first checkbox under Working with Excel formulas,   In my recollection, JAWS still reads cell references at A1, B2, and so on, even if the reference style e gets switched.  I usually figure out I’m having a problem only when I try to type in a formula and it dosen’t recognize the alphanumeric cell references.

Subject: Need help with an Excel formula


Hi Listers,


First, I do not fully know how to use Excel like many of you who probably use it for work. But I do use it for keeping our Writers Club’s roster and my bank account spread sheets. I used to have a formula that I could use in keeping a spread sheet of my bank debits and deposits—balancing my account. The formula I was given was =(E3-D3)+F2 and it helped me keep account of the totals when putting in debits and credits. Used to work great. Now, however, when I start a new monthly spread sheet, I get a message that the formula I key in is an error. I don’t know if something has gotten erased from the formula I had in my original file, or if the formulas have changed over time. Otherwise, I have no need to learn Excel. Can someone just please help me with this formula or tell me what might be wrong?


Thank you.
