Excel Facts

Is there a shortcut key for strikethrough?
Ctrl+S is used for Save. Ctrl+5 is used for Strikethrough. Why Ctrl+5? When you use hashmarks to count |||| is 4, strike through to mean 5.

Perhaps you have it set in Windows as Read-Only? Open up Windows Explorer, navigate to the file right-click on it and select properties. Look towards the bottom under Attributes and see if the Read Only check box is checked.

Best regards

Richard
