You could try the named range approach.
Select your *second* cell for data entry and then hold down <Ctrl> and
continue to select all the rest of the desired cells in order, ending with
selecting your *first* cell *last*.
While the cells are still selected, click in the name box and give this
range a short name such as "Entry1".
Now, when you're ready for data entry, simply click on the range name in the
name box. The focus for the range is th...Text to speech particular cell

I would like a cell automatically formatted in the same way a conditional
format works - but the format to be based on the value of an adjacent cell.
Any ideas as I cant work out how or if I can achieve this
Cumbo, Use Conditional Formatting, but change cell valve is to formula is
and use something like this, will change the cell if A1=25
=$A$1=25, so if you select B5 and put this in conditional formatting cell B5
will change when A1 = 25

Periodically I open a work book and the calculation option

Calculation, auto or manual, is set by the first workbook that's opened. It
is that way for any other workbooks opened in that instance of excel. Look
for a workbook you might have opened first that's been set to Manual and
saved that way. Go figure.
