EE Pros.,

I think this is a simple problem but I don't know how to fix it.  I have cells that display the formula rather then the formula's results.  How do I change that to reflect "results" not formulas?

I am no excel pro, but I guess when having a equal sign in front of the formula, excel will automatically calculate it.
=A1+B1 displays as 4 when both A1 and B1 are 2.

Rgonzo1971,

Thank you!  That worked.  I didn't know those options applied only to the worksheet but that's exactly what the problem was.

Thanks again,
