Click on the warning sign, at the bottom of the list, click 'Error checking options'

In the dialogue, turn off 'Enable background error checking'

HTH,

Alan.

That error when when Microsoft Office Excel doesn't recognize text in a formula. Are you sure you want to avoid it rather than ignore it?

I would suggest you to leave the option 'On' and correct the error.
