Hello Experts Exchange
I currently have a Excel 2010 spreadsheet that has formulas in it that only work when I go in to the cell and press enter.

The formulas in the cells are like the following;
='J:\07\AC4\Moulding\[MouldingRed561.xls]Production'!AD141+'J:\07\AC4\Moulding\[MouldingBlue561.xls]Production'!AD141+'J:\07\AC4\Moulding\[MouldingYellow561.xls]Production'!AD141

Is there a way to get the formulas to update automatically?

Regards

try to press CTRL+ALT+F9 if the formulas will be recalculated.
also check if your cell formatting is not text, so you can try to change to general and then CTRL+ALT+F9 to recalculate formulas

I think you need to stop auto recalculation on Excel cells from automatic to manaul
as the instruction at this site
 http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/controlling-excel-2007-formula-calculations-manual.html

After that, you can click cell and press enter, the cell will calculate it again
