Re: Excel 2016: Formulas

Louis Maher

In editing Excel cells, sometime it is necessary to make the following configuration change.


You can try unchecking the box which says “allow editing directly in cells”.  In Excel 365, do this:

Open an Excel spreadsheet. 

Type alt + f. Up arrow to options, hit enter. Down arrow to advanced. Tab until you find the box which says “allow editing directly in cells. Uncheck that

box. Shift + Tab until you reach OK. Hit enter.

F2 brings you to the formula bar. This does have something to do with the auto complete, but I haven't edited formulas in Excel in a couple years, so I don't remember exactly why there are issues. Using arrow keys, I believe jumps you to the excel table to select a cell or group s of cells to add to the formula.
