moderated Re: editing inside excel cell

Van Lant, Robin

There could be a couple things going on here, depending on the issue you are having. If you can edit other cells and are just having issues with this one, I wonder if the email addresses are hyperlinks and not just editable text. I was having a lot of issues this summer with putting an email address in a cell and when I pressed enter to get out of the cell, Excel would turn the email into a hyperlink. If you are having the issue that some of us face with JAWS slowing to a snail's pace while editing cells, you may want to turn off JAWS and restart it. Frankly, if I’m editing a lot of text in a particular Excel cell, I will often copy the text of the cell into Notepad, edit away and then paste it back into the cell. Doing this would also remove any hyperlinks in those email addresses.
