For some reason I cannot get Excel 2000 to display the results of a formula. Only the formula text displays. I've gone to Tools-Options-View-Windows Options and checked and unchecked the Formulas checkbox. It doesn't make any difference.

Help!

Thanks,

Thomas

Also look in the formula bar, if it's preceeded by an apostrophe, remove it. Always check the formatting as mentioned (Format -> Cells... -> Number (tab) ..). Also check whether you're in formula view or not, toggle by pressing Ctrl + ~ (tilde on most 104 character keyboards).

I assume the formula does start with =
post the formula you have in the cell
