When I click on ONE cell I get 3 others below it that also highlight. This problem is only specific to the one spreadsheet. How do I stop it and go back to the normal one cell?

What is =ROMAN(40) in Excel?
The Roman numeral for 40 is XL. Bill "MrExcel" Jelen's 40th book was called MrExcel XL.

What excel are you using and when you say highlighted are they coloured in?

Someone may correct me but you have have conditional formatting turned on to highlight duplicate cells. Try going to Home>Conditional Formatting>ClearRules>Clear Rules From Entire Sheet and see if that helps.

Right click the sheet tab and select View Code. Is there any code?

If you are zoomed in.. try zooming back to 100%

If you have changed views, try going back to another view...

These are a couple of issues that have caused this problem to people in XL2007.

It seems that whenever I have the header showing on the page I have the issue. When I do not have the header showing, it doesn't do it.?
