Search for a function or select a function from a category.
Manual recalculation is useful when you have a large spreadsheet that takes several minutes to recalculate.
Instead of waiting impatiently while it recalculates after every change you make, you can set the recalculation to manual, make all of your changes, and then recalculate at once.
Three attempts later and it was still adamant it wanted to be "Manual" and nothing else.
Copy the contents of the spreadsheet to a new one, and deleted the old one (it wasn't a particularly important spreadsheet, thankfully), and everything was fine.
Excel automatically recalculates the value of cell A3. When you select a cell, Excel shows the value or formula of the cell in the formula bar. To edit a formula, click in the formula bar and change the formula. If a part of the formula is in parentheses, that part will be calculated first. The part between the brackets (arguments) means we give Excel the range A1: A4 as input.
Excel uses a default order in which calculations occur.
