Hello again,

After I inserted a row in a spreadsheet, a prompt (see below) appeared on the screen as follows. (The "Check sequence..." is part of my data...)
Cannot Get Rid of This Prompt
Even after I choose one of the options, the prompt remains. (Excel may be "confused" b/c a nearby row is formatted with a yellow background and its cells are merged.). How can I get rid of it?

Thanks,
Steve

Update:
By the time I entered this question, went to another open workbook and came back the prompt was gone, with no logical explanation.

For future reference: how I can I get rid of it without "having to wait"? :)

Thanks again,
Steve

You can try:
1) Press the Esc key (it may not work in some cases)
2) Disable the feature
Click on File and then on Options and then on Advanced and go to the Cut, copy, and paste section and uncheck the box for "Show Insert Options buttons".
3) Paste again somewhere else and undo (workaround but it works for me)

Hope this helps

Disable the feature by using suggestion 2 in my previous comment if you don't want to have this ever :)

Just to be clear, the problem occurred right after I inserted the row and before I pasted. Would the above still apply? Thanks!

yes, I tried it exactly like you described...had a formatted row, inserted a row and got the insert options you mentioned...I discabled it (Excel 2016) and now I repeat the same stems and do not get those options button :)

Now if you copy-paste, you will still get the paste options button (different from what you have in the image) but that goes away by pressing Esc and you may want to keep that :)

I went with:
>>3) Paste again somewhere else and undo (workaround but it works for me).

NOTE: I did not try the other two solutions. For one thing, I may find this prompt useful at some point.

Thanks for the prompt (if you pardon the pun :) ) and informative replies!
