  hatrickj 10:03 13 Jun 2006

A friend has Excel installed but a strange problem has developed.if he wants to delte a value in a cell the delete does not work. A workround has been found - that is to use CUT> but not PASTE>.

Can anyone come up with a reason for the problem.s artising and a way to cure the fault, please?

the "delete" key does not work? If so, is it just in Excel... could it be a keyboard problem?

If not, "Detect and Repair" from the "Help" menu is one of the things to try.

Does it work if you right click on the cell and select clear contents?
