Excel Cell Displays the Function Instead of its Calculated Value

28 Jul

Problem:  I inserted a column and entered some formula into it.  But after pressing enter, it was displaying the formula itself instead of its calculated values. Solution:

  • Highlight the column (in my case), row or cells; wherever the problem is.
  • Right click on selection.
  • Select ‘Format Cells…‘ option.
  • Click on ‘Number‘ tab, if not already on it.
  • Click on ‘General‘ option under ‘Category‘.
  • Click OK to close the dialog box.
  • Recalculate the sheet/cells.
