The whole screen?! Like the desktop and everything… basically all lit pixels?

Or do you mean the whole Excel window?

Your screen lock is turned on.

@osullivanbr – i always thought that was called “scroll lock”

Well obviously it is. I was only testing.

I’m heading off to hang my head in shame in the corner now.
I blame robmandu for using the word screen

Is wasn’t my fault. It was robmandu and the mind tricks.

Don’t recall that issue happening – but then, between selecting data and commands I usually close my eyes, cross my fingers and hope everything’s still there when I look again to save….

When it comes to excel, patience truly is a virtue….....I try, but sometimes I fail….
