It could have a virus or simply too much data in it or too much data linked to it. Try doing a copy of the whole spreadsheet, and then paste the data into a new spreadsheet. If it doesn't contain too many different formulas, try pasting only the values, and then replace the formulas manually. You might also try just deleting the links, if there are any. If this doesn't solve it, reply to this thread and let us know.

Hope this will FixYa!!!

    I had the same issue with a very important spreadsheet, one that keeps track of the current status of all our invoices, working, sent and paid. It just quit one day and acted just like what you described. Any time I would try to do anything more than just typing in a cell, it would lock up.

When importing data from Excel 2010 spreadsheet Easy Mark says you must install Excel


If you selected an Excel spreadsheet from the Data Import dialog, you will need to select which worksheet within the spreadsheet contains the label data you wish to import. If you don't have Excel installed you'll need at least Excel Viewer as Easy Mark relies on the users system to view the worksheet.

Cell freeze 3 rows together at a time.


Freeze a Row in Microsoft Excel
Microsoft Excel 2010 can freeze, or lock, a top row as you scroll down the worksheet.
For example, you may need to keep the top row of column titles visible at all times.
The "View" tab on the command ribbon contains the "Freeze Panes" button in the "Window" group.
A single row or a range of rows can lock through the "Freeze Top Row" or "Freeze Panes" options.

Open the Excel worksheet.
Click the top row heading.
The row heading displays a number just left of the first column of cells. The selected row appears shaded.


Click the "View" tab on the command ribbon.
Click the "Freeze Panes" button in the "Window" group.
A list of options appears.

Click the "Freeze Top Row" option.
A black horizontal line appears on the worksheet.
This line indicates the locked row that stays on the screen as you scroll down the worksheet.

What is a workbook?


A workbook is a spreadsheet file. By default, each workbook in Excel contains three pages or worksheet

The term spreadsheet is often used to refer to a workbook, when in actual fact, spreadsheet refers to the computer program, such as Excel.

So, strictly speaking, when you open the Excel spreadsheet program it loads an empty workbook file consisting of three blank worksheets for you to use.

How to make a 7 row and a 7 coloum in a spreadsheet


Creating a table in Microsoft Excel 2007 allows you to work with that data independently of the rest of the worksheet. First you must define your table, though, which you can do either from scratch or from data already in the worksheet. The process is a simple one. Read on to learn how to define a table in Excel 2007
  • Start off by doing one of the following: Select the range of cells that you want to make into a table within your worksheet then proceed to Step 2 OR Start immediately with Step 2.

  • Click on the "Insert" tab at the top of the document.

  • Find the "Tables" group, then click on "Table." The "Create Table" dialog box will appear.

  • Type in a range for your table if you did not select a range in Step 1. If you did already select a range then that range will automatically appear in the dialog box.

  • Check the "My Table Has Headers" box if the data set you selected already contains the headers you want to use. If you don't check this box, the table will display default header names, which you can then go in and change.

  • Hit the "OK" button at the bottom of the Create Table dialog box to create your table.

    I need to import data from access into excel where one column go into one worksheet and other into next worksheet


    Acess will only export the data into an Excel spreadsheet with each element of the record going into a sperate column.

    You can record macros to get the data to go where you want it to go on the spreadsheet.

    Import data from access into excel where one column go into one worksheet and other into next


    Can't be done.

    Access will only put the data into one worksheet. It is very picky when it comes to exporting data into an Excel spreadsheet.

    There are two ways to get around it:

    1) You can export the data from Access into two files. One for the the first worksheet and another file for the second workshet.

    2) You can import everything into one spreadsheet and build a macro into Excel to cut the information one spreadsheet and paste it into the other if this is a redundant task to do all the time.

    Hope that helps you out.
