Excel: Unable to unselect cell
Posted on 2001-07-04
Working in Novell 4.2 network, win98se workstation, Office 2000.
User selects a cell then the mouse pointer acts as if the left mouse button is stuck down. If you switch to another application that is open (word, lotus notes) the mouse responds normally. If you switch back to Excel, you have the same problem. The only way to exit Excel is to Ctrl/Alt/Del and end task. If you open the same spreadsheet again you have the same problem but If you reboot the problem may or may not re-occur. If you open a new spreadsheet it seems to function normally. I have changed the mouse, same problem. I suspected a corrupted file but I was able to open the file on another PC with no problems. This has occured on 3 different workstations.
Any insite on this problem would be greatly apreciated
