Don't know if some settings are incorrect but I am only able to view one formula (the one showing when i open post) and regardless of what i have done no other cell formulae appear.

Any assistance appreciated

I've had problems viewing formulas/formulae in the HTML examples in Firefox for a while, now. Not that I have a fix for hte issue, just stating that it could be browser-specific.

Yes I was able to scroll on sheet in IE and it changed.

Is scrolling on cell No to left of screen the only way to view formula

No, you can also click the links in the cells to view the formula in the bar at the top.

Hi,

aren't those problems mostly (or only or always) occuring in posts with more than 1 HTMLmaker-table on the page ?

kind regards,
Erik

It can happen with that, yes. However, there appears to be an issue with *any* HTML Maker example--even if only one is on the page--when viewing the page in Firefox. I experience it myself, daily.

I also have absolutely no ideas as to why it happens or what to do to fix it.

Erik,
I tried the following in both IE and Firefox.
http://www.mrexcel.com/board2/viewtopic.php?t=238344

Was able to scroll on both (whereas previously could not using Firefox) but only on IE could I click on the link as suggested by Kirsty

Perhaps the type of formula may create a problem in Firefox because every time I have tried to use it I have come up with a blank' hence my initial question.

Would be interested to see if the same thing happens to others.

pedro-egoli,

I can not help you with FireFox (don't have this installed)

this thread is (again) a warning for all members to put their formulas separetely in their messages even if they display correctly in Colo's HTMLmaker at the time when submitting the post

(alternatively use Table-It, which has less layout-functionality but accurate and automatic (no copy-paste needed) formula-display)

greetings from Belgium,
Erik
