    arrow key (2003)

    Just installed a new copy of Excel and I find that in some of my spreadsheets if I type a number into a cell and then press an arrow key I get a reference to the second cell added in the first cell, which is not what I want. How do I make the arrow keys act like the ENTER key and just move me in the right direction? Thanks, all.

    Does the problem persist after quitting and restarting Excel?
    Does the problem persist after restarting Windows?

    No, it doesn't, and all is now well. Let me into the secret, Hans, what was it?

    No idea, really, but sometimes an application becomes confused about the meaning of the keys on the keyboard. In 99% of all cases, restarting the application or restarting Windows cures the problem.
