Click in cell w/ formula and get colors in referenced cells
When you click in a cell with a formula, Excel will then put color
around the cells that are referenced.
Somehow I turned that feature off. Now I do not get colors in th
other cells. Where is that option to turn it back on???? I've looke
and looked but I just can't find that option.
Thanks for the help

...CTabCtrl and retrieving text with GetItem
I am using the following code to show a popup menu when the user right

if (tab == -1)

because it is text and I do not want to include it in the

It depends on what the actual formula is, but *some*
functions ignore text entries. You could use the ISNUMBER
function to include only those entries that are numbers.

When you paste a formula it relatively changes the cell references to suit
where you have pasted it to. EG. If you pasted =sum(P1:P3) from cell P4 to
cell B4 it would change to =sum(B1:B3). However, if you pasted it to cell B2
it could not reasonably change the references. If you are pasting because you...Creating Formula with Embedded Variable ID
