    Excel - 'Ready' area at the bottom of screen (Excel 2002)

    Hi,
    I am having a problem getting the "ready" area of an Excel spreadsheet to show up on one of our training room computers. For example, on my computer, at the very bottom of my Excel worksheet, there is a grey area that says "Ready" at the far left hand corner of my screen. When I right click anywhere in the grey area (where the word "Ready" appears) the following menu appears:

    None
    Average
    Count
    Count Nums
    Max
    Min
    Sum

    Of course, my is always on "Sum", and I occasionally switch it to "Average"... I'm guessing the computer in our training room has "None" selected, because when we highlight a column of numbers, it doesn't show the "Sum" of the numbers down in that grey area. My first problem is that I can't find the word "Ready"... there just isn't any grey area, so right clicking doesn't generate the menu mentioned above. Any ideas what I need to do to find that menu?
    Thanks!!
