I am using Excel 2016. I have the following formula in cell A3 =A1+A2. If I select A3 and click Trace Precendents then it highlights A1 and A2. If I select either A1 or A2 and click Trace Dependents I get a message saying "The Trace Dependents command found no formulas that refer to the active cell" which is clearly untrue. Neither the sheet nor the woorkbook are protected. I can't find any threads which have this problem with such a simple formula. Any suggestions?
