Excel 2011 (Mac) wont allow any input to any spreadsheet


New Mac Book loaded with Office 2011 and the users is reporting I can’t seem to write in Excel. I can open the program and files, but I won’t allow me to type in it

I have tried a new spread sheet and still no joy ?

this must be a preference somewhere but not found it yet any ideas ?

Sounds a bit like an add-in or personal macro file in Excel's startup directory is hanging. Do you know if they have a personal macro file (e.g. Personal.xlsm) or are there add-ins in your environment (PDF converter, Mappoint, industry-specific etc)?

A quick google to the Microsoft Mac pages also suggests deleting Excel Preferences:

Which version of Mac OS X?
