I have calculations not working all of a sudden on my worksheet.

simple stuff   =d13/d22*100        <--------- E14

If I change the value in either D13 OR D22   THE E14 DOES NOT RE-CALCULATE

    If worksheet cells do not seem to be calculating when changing worksheet cell values or copying cells containing formulas then workbook or worksheet calculation is turned off. To turn on automatic calculation choose the menu command Tools->Options, navigate to the Calculation tab, select Automatic, and click OK. Note that in some cases manual calculation may make more sense such as when there are many calculations, complex calculations, or many UDF references which cause every calculation to take more than a second or two.

    Note that a workbook can be manually calculated at any time by pressing F9.

    Also, might you have set the format of those cells to Text?
