Refreshing the clock

Posted by Chris Whitehead on December 04, 2001 7:49 AM

I want to show the clock running in Excel. I can input current time using =now() but this doesn't update automatically. I have to press F9 each time. I am wanting to use the output from the clock in a formula to show costs increasing in line with the time.

Any ideas.

In Excel, go to Tools/Options/Calculation and see if it's set on Automatic or Manual. When it is set to manual, you have to press F9 to calculate.
