Excel stopped Calculations???

I'm running Excel 2000  build 9.0.272

I was working on my spreadsheet, all of a sudden it appeared to crash.
So i rebooted my machine.

When I did so, it stopped making calculations. :(  Very strange (an
very bad).  I can't get it to do _any_ calculations, either n th
spreadsheet I was working on or any other spreadsheet.

I can't figure out how to make it re-calculate the formulas again.
Everything is intact, my formulas, values, etc...

thank you for your help

I figured it out.  For anyone who wants to know.  The options menu go
changed when the spreadsheet crashed.

There is an option to automatically calculate.  It is the default, bu
somehow it got changed during the crash.

It gets that setting from the first workbook you open.  It then applies to
all workbooks.  DOn't ask.  No one knows.

Excel Copy and Paste (Greyed)

hot to access deleted information in excel sheets
Hi everyone, a friend of mine did something stupid ;) she deleted some data in an excel worksheet, saved the file and quit the program. Now she discovered she actually still needs that data. No backup though. As far as I know, some information about former states of an document is saved by Excel even if versioning (or whatever it is called) is not enabled.

Microsoft Excell does not format the data numbers right justified.
Hi. I am using Microsoft Excell and can not format the data in the cells as I want. For example, I want to format the cells with the dollar sign and right justified but when I click on the buttons under format cells, it does not do what I want. I have no idea why this does not work but it seems like it should. I have tried it at least 20 times and it never works or gives me any indication why.

Excel warns that the file has changed when it hasn't
I have a rather large Excel file, with 15 sheets. I am finding that if I open and then try to immediately close it, Excel warns "Do you want to save the changes you made to ..", even though I haven't changed a thing (or even typed anywhere in the file). What's going on? This is using Office XP, with SP3 installed. Bill Do you have any of these volatile functions in your workbook?

formating excel charts
Does anyone know how to scale the chart area in excel?? Here is a synopsis of my problem. I created a chart and pasted it into word. I changed the page setup in word to landscape and made the chart as big as possible to fit on one page. I understand if I mess with the size, I can make it scale corectly. It appears that the scale is like 2 in the x direction and 1 in the y. I would like to know if there is a way to define the x and y scale so that the grid lines are a 1 to 1 scale. Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated. Jon Peltier has instructions for making gridlines squa...
