I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Looks like a bug. Workarounds appear to be to not use merged cells (always a good plan) or move the source data so that it does not occupy the same area as the merged cells on your sheet.

Hello,

adding to rorya's suggestion, I find that the top banner merged cells are the real culprit. The other two merged cells don't seem to have much influence.

Are you aware of the formatting option "Center across selection", which you can use instead of merging cells? You can find it on the Alignment tab of the Format dialog.

Your banner occupies three rows. Check if you cannot use one row that is three times as high and use "Center across selectio" instead.

cheers, teylyn

That doesn't actually notify us of anything. As a general rule it's more helpful to post a reply telling us that it can't be used and why.
