excel formula won't copy down
=sum(c1a2+b2). Just a simple formula for keeping track of cks for bank
statement. Have used it for well over a year with MSC Office Home and Student, now it does not want to copy down and add and subtract numbers. I even uninstalled it and reinstalled it. Help, please?

"sum" is redundant.

Well, to start with you might explain to us what you are expecting the SUM
function to do in that formula. You have calculated C1A2+B2, but you haven't told Excel what it is that you want SUM to add to that result. Or did you intend the formula just to be =C1A2+B2 ? If you don't understand what the SUM function does, look it up in Excel help. You haven't told us what happens when you copy the formula down. Is the cell just displaying the formula, or are all the cells showing you the result from the first row? If the former, check whether you've applied the option to view formulas, and then check whether the cell is formatted as text. If formatted as text, format as general and then reenter the formula. If the latter (i.e. all cells showing results from first row), check that you've got Tools/ Options/ Calculation showing Automatic, not Manual.

What exactly do you mean by "does not want to copy down." Does Excel not
show the fill handle or does the copy/paste functions not work? Or does the function copy but not evaluate at all, or correctly? "Janet T" wrote: > =sum(c1a2+b2).

You probably have recalculation set to manual.

excel formula won't copy down
It copies , but does not calculate the answer. I even tried typing the full
formula into each decending cell. Changed original starting amount and the formulas did not calculate a new answer. Apparentlly the copy & paste are not functioning. Cause when I C&P the answer stays the same as where it was copied down from. So any help is appreciated. Janet "Anthony Fontana" wrote: > What exactly do you mean by "does not want to copy down."

As I and others have suggested earlier, it sounds as if calculation mode is
set to manual. Have you checked?  David Biddulph "Janet T" > wrote in message ... > It copies , but does not calculate the answer. I even tried typing the > full > formula into each decending cell.
