Hi, I'm in the process of sending a dvd-rw drive back to samsung,but I first have to have the RMA number,samsung sent me a RMA request form as a excel worksheet, I've never used excel before, when I select a cell and start to type nothing happens, what do I have to do to activate the curser

You shouldn't have to do anything except click in a cell and type.

Well thats what I thought, but the curser doesn't activate, I can move the curser around its in the shape of a cross, as I say when I type nothing.

It should be a cross initially. Have you tried clicking on a cell then clicking in the formula bar and then typing?

  Desperate-Dan 18:33 14 May 2008

yes I tried that, nothing

I would suggest you reinstall the program as it appears to be corrupt.

I think thats the problem I don't think I have it,I can't find excel, I have microsft works spreadsheet, and I've got excel viewer but thats it

Close the file. Start Works Spreadsheet. File > Open, on the files Type drop down select Excel SS (.xls) file, navigate to the file and click OK to open it.
