For some reason that I have not been able to identify, when I try to

select a range of adjacent cells using the Ctrl+Shft+Arrow Key

combination in the Formula Bar, rather than select the range of

cells I would like the formula to operate on, only the first cell in

the range is selected!.

Example worksheet range:

Col B

Row 1 10

Row 2 10

Row 3 10

Row 4 10

Row 5 =SUM(

1. I enter =SUM( in cell B5

2. I select the last cell in the range I want to sum - B4

3. I hit Ctrl+Shift+Up Arrow+Enter - Until today, this resulted in

=SUM(B1:B4) in cell B5.

4. For some extremely infuriating reason, the resulting formuala in

Cell B5 = SUM(B4)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This happens in all workbooks even when I restart Excel!

Somebody please please tell me why this happens and how I can fix it!

For me it works as you want it to.

You might check tools/Options/transition and see if transition navigation keys

is turned on.
