The return and enter keys work in every program except Excel. They used to work in excel before so this is a new development. Does anyone know what I can do. When I enter a number and press enter the number is entered but the highlighted box stays in same cell - only way to move down or across is with arrow keys.
 

Excel Facts

Enter current date or time
Ctrl+: enters current time. Ctrl+; enters current date. Use Ctrl+: Ctrl+; Enter for current date & time.
