#### Show actual values added instead of cell references? (=A1+A4 shows as =10+2 in cell)

```Is this even possible?

I have the following:

A1  =A2 (Shows result of 10)
A2  10
A3
A4 =A5 (Shows Result of 2)
A5 2

A7 =10+2 (Shows result of 27)

Is there a way to show the formula in A7 as =10+2 instead of having it
=A2+A5 ??? Thanks a bunch!
```

I know this is possible by highlighting the A2 and pushing F9 then
highlighting the A5 portion of the formula and pushing F9...but is
there a way to do this via formula or vba?

```The post I read sounded like they either had a suggestion or came to that same
conclusion.

I didn't go looking through all the forums you could have posted to.

My response would have been that it's possible if the formulas are pretty
simple.  As soon as they get just a little more complex than real simple, it
becomes very, very difficult.

Standard MFC controls behave different when showing polish characters
