I have created a spreadsheet which will only display the formula in a cell. How do I hide the formula and display the value behind the formula.

Any help would be great.

Thanks. Unfortunately I've got Excel2002 on XP. When I follow this action it resizes the columns on my spreadsheet

that happes on mine also. just adjust the columns to what you want. if you need to switch between the 2 viesw, use the macr recorder to generate the code that sizes the columns to what you want.

But the Formula uncheck option doesn't display any values. I'm still just getting formulas displayed.

maybe your cells are formatted as text. try this.
in a cell that displays the formula, choose 'format cells' and choose format number>general.
select the cell with the formula and press F2 to edit the cell. Hit enter.
does that work?
