    Status Bar Panels (XL2000)

    It must be Friday.

    The Status Bar with all those empty panels staring at me became a challenge. I got to thinking, and that is dangerous, what the heck are each of these for? There are eight little panels just staring at me...

    I played and searched and pushed lots of buttons and I could find a reason for 6 of the 8 panels:

    1. who knows
    2. calculation type and result
    3. extended mode
    4. caps lock on
    5. num lock on
    6. scroll lock on
    7. end key clicked
    8. who knows

    What are panels 1 and 8 for ....ahhhhhh

    Hmmm ... the END panel also serves as the OVR overtype indicator, but that's all else I can find.

    Panel 8 holds FIX if you have it in Fixed decimal (tools - options - fixed decimal)
    In addtition to EXT mode with F8, Panel 3 shows ADD with shift-F8
