    I use Excel 2003. I use a very simple excel form that I have set up to use links to update cells (numbers X dollar amount to get a total; "="; sums). It worked fine until awhile ago when it quit updating when the linked cells were changed/updated. I have attached the file. Thanks for your help.

    Looks like some formulas in your sheet (column H) were lost.

    NB: =SUM(D26*F26) is exactly the same as =D26*F26

    I don't understand what you mean.

    He means there is no need to wrap your formula with Sum(). unless you are actually adding different ranges/values.
    =D26*F26 would be one value.

    =Sum(D26,D27) would be appropriate, but =Sum(D26+ D27) is the same as =D26+D27

    You have manual calculation on, do you press <f9> to calculate?

    I think what Jan was referring to was that only SOME of the cells in col H have formulas. If you change things in the initial rows (6-13), it has no effect on the values in H in those rows as they are values not formulas.

    Steve is correct; that is what I meant to say.
