Yes, that was the first thing I did, read the section on Excel. And I followed the steps just as they were outlined there. It worked for the other spreadsheets.
But I have now come to a solution: I have two very large spreadsheets, so big that I had to split the one big one into 2, so one has books a-l and the other has books m-z. The m-z data base reads the titles just fine, but the a-l one, about half the titles don’t read correctly. So now that I have this new fast powerful computer with Windows 10 on it, I put my spreadsheet back together, and put the data from the spreadsheet that didn’t read correctly onto the end of the one that did. So now I have a spreadsheet that goes from a1 through p29207 and the columns read fine. So no need to revert to Jaws! But I really wish NVDA would let you put the column title before the cell contents, but I don’t see anyway to do that. So that’s one major hurdle accomplished! Thanks so much to everyone for your advice.

Have you read the manual’s chapter on Excel?
Hit NVDA key + n, arrow down to help, open the menu and arrow down to the users’ guide, and hit h until you reach the section on Excel (SECTION 11.2).
I don’t use row titles, just column titles in row 1. I usually have column A blank, just because that’s how I did it in WindowEyes. So my data starts in B2, and goes from b2 to p17288. Not sure what else I can do at this point. I’d sure hate to have to go back to jaws, but if I can’t read the column titles of my big spreadsheets, I may have to.
