    Angry Left digit chopped in multiple cells

    What's this all about? Very annoying! And not that there are a few random numbers that are displayed correctly...what's up with the rest?

    Re: Left digit chopped in multiple cells

    HI hpkelley,


    Welcome to the forum.
    It happens with me when I am using low resourced machine and I remove a object from the excel sheet, then sheets refreshes back after minimizing / maximizing the window

    Go to a blank cell (which doesn't have the problem) and use the format painter to copy the format over to the affected cells. Does that help?

    I just tried this and it initially worked. Then I minimized/maximized Excel to find that it was re-chopped.

    Thanks.

    You'll want to note that every number but "1" is chopped on the left...

    Re: Left digit chopped in multiple cells

    bump

    Update 1: brand new computer/operating system and it still happens
    Update 2: It seems to only occur in cells in the "Accounting" Number Format.
    UPDATE 3: HUGE DISCOVERY, just now!!!
    - if I minimize from the tab at the top, then maximize from the Taskbar, viola, all's well...until you scroll, then the left-most digit is chopped.
    - to further complicate this one, only what scrolls up into the "frozen panes" is initially chopped, then, at some seemingly random point, every left-most digit on the spreadhseet shows up chopped
    - if I minimize from the Taskbar and then maximize, every left-most digit is chopped.


    Who's got this figured out? And does anybody else have this issue or am I alone?

    Thanks.

    This appears to be a screen refresh problem.

    How large is this file? Does it have a lot of graphics in it?

    You could try switching to Manual Calculation to see if that helps.
