Excel, how do I get ALT F C to work the same as ALT F Enter C ?

The above is an example, but it aplies to any menu. Before, if I pressed say, 
ALT F, the drop down menu would appear and I could press, say, C and get to 
the submenu. Now I have to press Enter, before the C, which is a bother. 
Thanks.

On my Windows 2000 version 5.00.2195 with Excel '97 and Excel 2003 the
Alt F C still works.

What version software / Excel are you using?

Put your fingers on alt-F and watch the toolbars.

hit alt-F a few times and to see if the File gets "highlighted" then
"highlighted".

If you have multiple options that have the same accelerator key--like F in File
(it's underlined), then excel won't expand the menu.

It'll just loop through all the items that have that accelerator key.

So if you're eyes are sharp, you may see the looping.  (the other item could be
on any toolbar--even home grown.)

How do I convert Excel 2007 Spreadsheet to Access 2007 database?
I used to be able to conver earlier versions of Excel spreadsheets to MS Access. How do you do this with Excel 2007 & Access 2007? Excel has never been automatically convertible.

Sum
Hi, I just found this "feature" at Excel formulas today. Please, have a look at: http://danielgudang.multiply.com/journal/item/192 (in portuguese, but images show all) Let me explain: some cell C1 = sum (C2:C5) some cell D1 = sum (D2:D5) some cell E1 = sum (E2:E5) A1 = C1 - D1 - E1 B1 = C1 - (D1 + E1) A1 = B1 ??? Oh, not always! Sometimes A1 will be +0, sometimes -0. Really strange! It's a feature of any application that uses IEEE double precision floating point math (e.g., every commercial spreadsheet I know of). It's the result of having finite precision ...

Recipient Policy Not Working #4
Running Exchange 2003 (SP2), recipient policy is not stamping email addresses on new mailboxes created (in User's AD properties, under email tab, there are no addresses (smtp, fax,etc).

using a UDF in place of a cond. format, b/c I need 4, not three
I know this is an age old topic here, and I'm really hoping that I don't just get referred to another web page [that type of help of course has its place and merits]. And if I had the time, I would have more fun going through docs and notes to find out how to do it, but time is not something I can barter. What I'm looking at is: I'm thinking along the lines of an example where I normally set the borders of my columns [except if it's the first row] in a cond. format via something like this: =AND((NOT(ISBLANK($A1))),(ROW()>1)) But, if I need that space for a Con...

Word 2003 stops working
Hi folks, Never had a problem with Word 2003 in the 3 years I've had this program. Suddenly, I have issues.

A problem caused the problem to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."
