Microsoft Excel 2003 - Formula result always Zero

One of my co-workers is working on a large spreadsheet with a lot of formulas.  It seems that whatever new formula she puts in results in zero.  I tried a brand new worksheet and the same thing happens.  I have gone to Tools..Options and the Calculation tab. It is set to automatic.  I even pressed <f9> and it didn't do any good.  I opened the spreadsheet from another computer and didn't have this problem.  

Any ideas?

So the issue is unique to that workstation.

(a) Do an office repair (Help or Tools menu in Excel 2003 IIRC).
(b) Better yet, do a full uninstall of Office, restart and do a full install (all components) of Office (not typical install). .

Hi Sky,
Sometimes when i don't understand what's going on with my PC , and it starts to annoy me i do system restore ... if you don't know how , here you are :
Click on : Start >> programs >> Accessories >> System tools >> System restore.
And restore your system to an earlier date when your excel sheet was working fine .

PS: this action will not delete any data or documents from your PC even if they were created after the chosen date… so no worries ..

Hope it helps,
Brgds, Wellous
