From: Charl de on 10 May 2010 05:25 Hi Had same problem but found solution on-line Check your options. Auto Calc may be switched off Tools > Options > Calcualtion Tab then click Auto Calc. Hope this helps Ron Rosenfeld wrote: So we do both have Excel's that work alike. 06-Feb-10 So we do both have Excel's that work alike. (I agree that SUM(a1,a2)--> 0 and the =a1+a2 --> 3) And yet, the OP's does not, apparently. Unless there is something he has omitted. --ron Previous Posts In This Thread: On Thursday, February 04, 2010 1:17 PM Martin wrote: Excel does not calculate my formulas This is very strange...Excel does not calculate any formula. I can do a simple =A1+A2, and it just return a zero value. I made sure of the following: - Cell is set to General (tried it with different cell settings too) - Autocalc is on in settings (even a manual F9 calc does not work) -- Martin Verville On Thursday, February 04, 2010 1:29 PM David Biddulph wrote: We might need a few more clues:What is in A1?

Try this first... Confirm your calculation setting. Create a new workbook. Add a simple formula to the new book such as the one you have. If it calc's correctly then it is not XL but a problem in the workbook. If the cells were previously text and you just reformatted them to number then the underlying value will still be Text. You need to force XL to convert them. Gord posted a method to do that. -- HTH...

In 2007, if I, with a new workbook Format Column A as TEXT A1: 1 A2: 2 B1: =A1+A2 --> 3 The same occurs if I enter '1 and '2 in cells pre-formatted as General. --ron On Friday, February 05, 2010 12:30 PM Gord Dibben wrote: RonTested in my 2007 with new workbook.

Interesting. I just did it again, but this time on a different computer. Same results as I posted initially. Computer 1 is running W7x64; computer 2 is running XP SP3 (32 bit) XL version on computer 2 is Excel 2007 (12.0.6514.5000) SP2 MSO (12.0.6425.1000) I assume the version on my W7 machine is the same, but it is now a few hundred miles away, so I cannot be sure. The other interesting phenomenon, that does occur on both machines, is that AFTER I enter =a1+a2 and see "3" as a result (without the quotes) the "3" is left justified the cell is formatted as TEXT =ISTEXT(B1) --> FALSE =ISNUMBER(B1) --> TRUE Selecting B1, then EDIT (F2) and <enter> displays just the formula, as one would expect in a text formatted cell. Very weird. But it is occurring on two different machines, two different OS's, same Excel 2007. --ron On Saturday, February 06, 2010 11:05 AM Gord Dibben wrote: OK.A1 & A2 formatted as text or preceded by apostrophe. OK. A1 & A2 formatted as text or preceded by apostrophe. In A3 =A1+A2 returns 3 =SUM(A1,A2) returns 0 which it should if A1 and A2 are text. In both cases =ISNUMBER(A1) and A2 and A3 returns FALSE, FALSE, TRUE I give up<g> Gord wrote: On Saturday, February 06, 2010 3:13 PM Ron Rosenfeld wrote: So we do both have Excel's that work alike.
