    AutoSum (2000)

    Very strange: When I hit the autosum button, the function that is inserted in the cell is the subtotal function instead. Anyone else experience this? If so, how do I fix it?
    Thanks.

    Excel does that when you have a filter in place. Remove the (auto)filter and you're back to SUM. Of course it is a sensible move though, to use SUBTOTAL on a filtered list.

    Thanks, Jan. Unfortunately, the file is one that was sent to me by a co-worker, and I am not familiar with the autofilter feature. How might I turn it off?
    Thanks.

    Data, filter, autofilter (or show all).

    Are you sure you're using Excel 2000? In Excel 2002 and up, this is a new feature - see XL2002: AutoSum Button Unexpectedly Returns Values from Hidden Cells in List with AutoFilter.
