Hi,

i am doing a simple thing.

i have two sheets, having data in one of them(say Sheet2), say A1:B20

in the other sheet i am using these values,

Say in one if the cells in Sheet1, i say A100=sheet2!A1, i expect the value to come up, but then the cell in sheet one(A100) shows me the formula instead.

Any IDEAS, please.

Thanks in advance,
Bhanu :confused:

How to total the visible cells?
From the first blank cell below a filtered data set, press Alt+=. Instead of SUM, you will get SUBTOTAL(9,)

Click in the cell with the formula showing and go to Edit/Replace and replace = with =. Somehow the cell with the formula got formatted as Text.
