    I have hit a button several times and cant get out of excel or even continuing working on my spreadsheet. A little 4 way arrow pops up than I am locked into one cell, if I move the cursor it highlights all the ranges in all directions and I cant do squat. All other buttons or Icons become inactive. Anyone Know how I can avoid this and what triggers it?

    I get the same problem.
    excel sometimes just starts dragging and selecting different ranges.

    I had it yesterday during a presentation.
    sorry. no solution from me. just another ponderer.

    I encounter that problem quite often myself,
    i always blame it on my mouse. When it happens try (if your using a scrolling mouse)
    clicking the scrolling wheel and it should
    be fine. Well fine after you get back to
    where you originally were.

    Hi Qroozn,

    Does your cursor change to a 4way arrow, when
    your having this problem?

    James,
    I really couldnt tell you.
    when i get the problem then i usually close my eyes, tap my heals three times, and say "I want to go home","I want to go home","I want to go home".
