    Funnily enough this happened on both my W7 laptops recently.

    And, on both, it cleared up by itself when I left the Event Viewer open.

    I wondered if it was a side effect of an update perhaps.

    It means it is rude to accept a gift then openly look to see if it is any good.

    Thanks Rory,

    I tried a UDF to SUM from a specified cell to the cell above but, unsurprisingly, it is slower than the CellAbove function which is neat and versatile.
