I have a spreadsheet with a table in it.   The formula in one column would automatically fill down when I created a new row in the table.    Sometime later that spreadsheet was changed.   Now when I add a new row, the formula doesn't get copied down.   I am includnig a copy of before (where it works) and where after (where it doesn't work).   Please help me find what the difference is that is causing the problem.  I am sure it is probably obvious, but I can't seem to find it.   Table-V1.0.xlsx Table-1.1.xlsx

Hello,

you can repair the table this way:

click a cell in the table and then select Convert to Range on the Table Tools ribbon and select Yes when prompted
click Insert > Table to make the range a table again. Note that the table name has now changed. You can edit the table name in the name box on the Table tools ribbon.

cheers, teylyn

Thank You.  That worked, but by any chance do you know why it got broken?   I had copied and pasted a bunch of information from the older table into the newer table and I am wondering if that might have caused the problem somehow.
