Although the Fill Handle appears - my mouse icon will not display the crosshairs necessary to use the fill handle functions. So I have the "Drag and Drop" option checked but the funcitonality is missing.
In addition I cannot "grab" formula borders to change formual references with the mouse. I have checked the mouse settings in control panel and everything seems fine. I have even used a different mouse with the same result.

This is perplexing and increasingly frustrating.

Thanks,
Doug

An IT guy here says that When docking and undocking laptops mouse drivers can be corrupted and can behave erratically. He re-installed my mouse drivers and I have my crosshair funtionality back. This was a very subtle manifestation of corrupted mouse driver - so I hope this might be of use to someone in the future.
