In no way does claim ownership or responsibility for such items, and you should seek legal consent for any use of such materials from its owner.. However, for some reason, the value calculated by the formula does not update automatically. We already had the calculation options set to automatic and didn't know why values weren't updating. You check if a donut chunk went in to the key board and some how jammed the ENTER key. When you do it, excel shows the formulas instead of their results. The formula shows up in the cell instead of the result, like this: Now what to do? You may have accidentally pressed CTRL ` (back quote symbol, the key below escape key in your keyboard) or activated the “Show Formulas” mode in Excel.I admit this isn't a viable solution for Excel users, but this approach is useful for anyone who wants the functionality and is able to use a Google spreadsheet.Last week, we shared a sheet that wasn't calculating correctly.
Nrobinson5 suggested that the formula uses absolute references: instead of =SUM(B8: B9), I entered formula =SUM($B:$B).Value End If End If Next distance = Range(Application. Address)- If distance It works in columns that have empty cells in them.Also the function outputs nothing (not errors) if you overwind the cells (calling the function) into places where should be no output, as I did it in the previous example's "2. A roundabout way is to load your Excel spreadsheet into a Google spreadsheet, use Google's UNIQUE(range) function - which does exactly what you want - and then save the Google spreadsheet back to Excel format.I had a case of this just now on Excel 2010: a particular spreadsheet that would not auto-recalculate.I changed the setting as indicated above; but the auto-recalculate still did not work, and upon rechecking the "Calculation" option, found it had reset itself back to "Manual" all by itself.I can only assume that somehow the file had become corrupted.
