    Must edit (F2) and {enter} to get formula to calculate. Need better way.

    I have an excel worksheet that adds two other worksheets in a data
    triangle. I copied it to create a new data set and used find &
    replace to change the worksheet references to the new ones.

    The cells still contain the result of the old formula referring to the
    previous worksheets. The only way I can get the formula to return the
    correct result is to edit (F2) each cell and press enter. Calc now
    (F9) does nothing.

    I've seen this before, but this time, I need to calculate many
    thousands of cells and don't have time for this workaround.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    Well, I discovered CTL+ALT+F9 instead of F9 alone. That did it, now
    does anyone have a way to find the cells that have circular
    references? : )

    Maybe one more mass change?

    Select all the cells
    edit|replace
    what: = (equal sign)
    with: =
    replace all

    Maybe excel will see that it needs to recalculate each formula.

    Thanks,

    I'll keep the note since that happens a lot. This is just the first
    time I had so many cells involved that it was a problem.

    Hai,
    usually this happened because your calculation setting set to Manual.
    To change it, go to: Formula (Excel 2007) - Calculation Option - choose Automatic
