Okay, I am not sure if it is a "letter" feature per say, but have any of you ever had a worksheet and you have text in the columns across the top? Then as you enter data in the rows below it, how it then wants to start with the text at the top of the column? For example, I have some columns with am, pm, and several other text cells across the top of a worksheet. However when I go to put a letter A under the AM it automatically puts in AM!!! :devilish: So, how can THAT be turned off? (or can it?) Thanks for your wisdom in advance! :wink:

Try going to Tools/Options/Edit Tab and untick Enable Auto Complete and see if that does what you want.
