Re: Working with Macros in Excel Spreadsheets?

I can get the combo boxes to work properly and browse choices, but the
page doesn't seem to ever reflect those changes. Wondering if someone
could look at the document in question?

To open combo boxes, you need to use Alt + Down Arrow. On my computer, once
I hit Enter to make a selection, NVDA stops talking. The easiest way to get
it to behave properly is to maximize the sheet. This happens for me after
every use of an Excel dropdown. It has happened for a very long time.

Subject: [nvda] Working with Macros in Excel Spreadsheets?

Hi all. Just trying to figure something out... in a workbook I'm reading for
a menu guide for an audio device, there are combo boxes to select the
different menus which I want to be displayed as tables.
However when I make my selections, even though the combo boxes are
accurately reflecting my changes, the tables don't switch and stay at
defaults. Is there something I am missing? Or is there another program I can
use to accomplish other than excel 2016? The document is below just for
reference in case someone wants to see what I mean. Thanks!
