is it possible to enter data into cells rising a tablet PC, Excel 2007 ,and Vista?

 All I've been able to do is annotate. Perhaps there is an add-in for this?

I think you would need to call up the "Virtual" keyboard on the tablet PC before Excel would understand that you want to add typed data.

Ok. I'm a little embarrassed. That works.

I tried that before but had the "pen" selected, so it just treated it as  a cursive markup.

As a follow up, are you aware of any substitutes for the Vista native pen tablet? One that has entry buttons better suited to Excel?

I'm not, sorry. I would think that there are some pen-tabs out there that may have more functionality. A quick web search should net you LOTS of results.
