I've got a weird one here folks. I have a simple workbook that

keeps track of certain files on the computer by recording the

location of the file, and the date and time the file was last

modified. I have a VBA function in a cell that determines the

correct modification date of the file by using the data in 2 other

cells (PATH and FILENAME) respectively. Works great in the original

column. Yet, when I try to copy the working cell from one column to

another, the results of the formula(function) do not appear in the

target cell. The formula appears, but it will not calculate and

display the result. I've tried many things to fix this:

1. recalculate all formulas

2. check to ensure that target column/cell is not locked

3. save workbook, close and reopen

4. type formula with VBA and source cell references by hand

5. I forget what else.

Using Excel in Office 2003. Any ideas?

Could you post the code for your function so we could try to help?

Please consider this issue as resolved. I spoke with Microsoft tech

support. They indicated the reason the target columns would not

display the results of the formula was due to the format of the

cells in the column being Text instead of General. To fix this, I

had to:

1. copy the formula from the source cell/column to the target

cell/column

2. select the target cell column, change format to General

3. select the text of the formula in the cell and press F2 then

Enter

The results of the formula then appeared as expected. I've worked

with excel since 1999, have done extensive formula and VBA work and

have never seen this before. I was unable to find any reference to

behavior of this kind on the 'net.
