Files in Excel have "flashing" text in formula bar, won't allow changes
Posted on 2011-03-06
We have an application that seems to have caused some corruption in Excel 2007. When I log in as the user having the problem and open an Excel file, click on a cell, I get the formula showing but it flickers and has "lines" through it. Can't make any changes or copy and paste.
I think this came from a third party software macro, as it is happening only on the two machines that use this particular software.
When I log in to either machine under my login, Excel works fine.
I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Office, but the problem still exists. Is there a way to do a COMPLETE AND TOTAL removal of Excel 2007? Since it works for me, I want to "reset" the user in question and see if the problem still exists.
Thanks in advance
