    Trying to enter a basic formula in Excel cell (=A2/B2) and when I leave the cell my email address is inserted into the cell. This of course is not what I wanted. I wanted C2 or wherever to be whatever value is in A2 divided by the value in B2. Starting new spreadsheet no help. Reboot computer no help.

    As Rosanne Rosanna Danna would say "never mind". It's MS Word Autotext "helping out" by inserting email address to replace any occurance of A2. So looks like Word and Excel share the same autocorrect entries.

    Try it again. If it does it again when you leave the cell, hit CTRL+Z straight after. Then tell us what happens.

    Not sure about CTLR+Z. That just deletes the formula. But Tools/Autocorrect then uncheck "replace as you type" has taken care of the problem.

    Thanks.

    Oops - brain went for a walk there. Of course I meant invoke Undo using the standard shortcut as soon as the AutoCorrection occurs.
