Formula Cell Not Refreshing in Excel 2010

Excel 2010 we have a cell where we enter a dollar amount, which then changes 3 other cells based on the formula for each cell.  When this happens the new numbers get calculated and display in each cell, but the original amount that was entered into those cells, stays also.  So the numbers in those 3 cells can not be easily read.  If you minimize excel and then open it again, or click on a new worksheet and then go back to the worksheet the numbers will display correctly, without the original numbers in background.  We have installed SP2 and all office updates that have currently been released.  Has anyone seen this before?Excel Example

I think it has more to do with your graphics driver than with office per se. Have you tried updating or reinstalling those?

It does it on several different workstations.  We've tried at least 4 different pc's, all of which are different models but running Office 2010.  Thanks, Mike

Check Options, Advanced and disable/enable 'hardware graphics acceleration' to see if that makes a difference.

You mentioned multiple workstations is it just this one workbook or more than one?

I'll have check with the user tomorrow, if it happens for other workbooks.  Thanks for the input, I'll update tomorrow.  Thanks, Mike

It appears to be a problem with the way it is exported out of our A/R system.  As I can copy the data from that worksheet to another and it works normally.  Thanks for the feed back though.  -Mike
