I am hopeing that what I am about to reveal, and I am really embarrassed about it, clears up my problem.
I am using Office 7 for all my Excel work and it works fine.
Could this be the reason why I cannot do what I asked about, editing in cells, has probably confused things??
If the answer is yes, I am really sorry for having you fine folks working hard to find solution.
If not the problem, will keep on working at it.
