    Hi there Neb,

    New "page". Do you mean new "worksheet"?? Is it the one file? Is it every file? Do you have any macros? Is it when you move to another cell? Just the Enter key? What about confirming a cell's data (i.e. entering edit mode, then checking the checkbox directly to the left of the formula bar)? Can you use a file on another computer and duplicate the results? Can you use a file from another computer (in which you know this doesn't happen) and duplicate it on your machine? You may have a macro in your Personal workbook, I'm going to assume. We need more information. Start with answering the questions I've posed and let us know.

    And to back up a little from Zack, are you even using Excel? Or is this Word? Something else? In Word, Ctrl+Enter is the shortcut for a page break, which would give you a new page. Are you accidentally hitting the Ctrl key at the same time or maybe it's stuck? If you could start by telling us which program you're using and then answer either Zack's or my questions, whichever's appropriate, we can get a better idea of what's going on.

    I just figured your many talents included psychic abilities. ;) Good to see you Zack.

    Durp.... Sorry for the lack of input sometimes i make the presumption that everyone knows what im doing....

    Using Micro$oft word 2007,
    No macros, Not hitting Ctrl by mistake,, Ctrl Key isn't stuck,
    Opened new word doc, typed some stuff, pressed enter, worked like it should and presented me with a new line....
    Transferred all my text from the one i was previously working on, problem solved (or is it?)
    Any ideas why this happened?
    Thanks to the both of you...

    Well, as someone who worked help desk for many years, I'm going to go with my usual answer ... "glitch". :) If it happens again, turn on show characters (paragraph looking button) and see if there's actually a page break being inserted or if it's a section break that's kicking it to a new page or neither. It might not answer the question, but at least it will give us more information.
