Selecting a cell with Mouse doesn't always work
I have a great deal of trouble with the mouse click in Excel (Version 15.22). I have to move the mouse out of the cell I'm working in, click on a cell far away from it several times, and then come back and try it again.
This is never an issue with Excel (Version 14.6.4). I'd like to use the later version but it's too difficult to use with the cell selection issue.
Thanks for your feedback. Several issues have been fixed with regard to cell selection. Some have already been released and one fix will be available in the Oct. 2019 monthly release of Excel for Mac. Once you have version 16.30 or greater, you should no longer have an issue if you are using repeated rows at the top of your sheet and using Page Layout View. If you want to get the fix sooner, you can opt into the Insiders program and choose the Fast updates. To do so, just go to Help > Check for Updates. Then check the box to join the Office Insider Program and choose Office Insider Fast. Then press Check for Updates and install version 16.30×.
Using version 15.34 and this issue is still constantly occurring. Please fix!!

I have the same issue with Excel 15.32 running on Sierra 10.12.4. It is yet another really annoying glitch. The issue seems to be twofold.Often I cannot click into a cell and have to try scrolling top and down or changing sheet or some other random act. Secondly, if I can click in a cell, frequently my entry into the cell does not show up for many seconds, or does so after I have switched to another sheet and back.
I thought it was just me! I have the same problem, and I deeply regret upgrading from Office 2011. Excel at times is completely unusable. I will keep trolling the web for solutions or for a way to downgrade.
constantly struggle with this on a daily basis.

I have the same problem and have not found any solution to it!
"click on a cell far away from it several times, and then come back and try it again" -- this works for me, thanks a lot!
having so much trouble selecting/clicking cells in the newest version of MS Excel (using Apple's Magic Mouse). the rest of the UI functions normally, but the cells just don't detect the mouse at all.
