Tony asks "I am having a problem modifying a worksheet that I've had no problems with in the past. I wanted to insert two new columns to the spreadsheet but I couldn't due to the intersecting point of a merged cell. No big deal, I will just "un-merge" them using the "Format Cells" option. I tried to remove the check mark from the "Merge Cells" box but the option was unavailable. The box was gray and could not be adjusted. Do you have any advice?"

When you have to insert a column and there are some merged cells, DO NOT select the entire column, instead, just select ONE NON-MERGED cell, then go to Edit, Insert, and select "Entire Column". That should work.
