      See this (assuming that you are comparing Excel 2003 with whatever version that you are getting frustrated with):

        Wouldn't a medical expense tracker for tax purposes depend on the region that you are in? Each region does its taxes differently.

            You are not tackling the right issue. If you are accidentally pressing Close so often that it becomes a problem, then that is your issue. The issue is not so much the fact that Excel boots you out of edit mode. Maybe it's a user interface issue, or maybe you are not being careful enough about what you click on.

                  We are actively working on a plan to provide PivotCharts in Excel Mac desktop.

                  7/26/16
                  As noted previously, we are actively working on providing PivotCharts in Excel Mac desktop. This is a large project with many dependencies. As such, we cannot provide any details on when it will be available. However, I’ll update this thread when we get closer to a release timeframe.

                  Thanks,
                  Scott [MSFT]

                      Are you using absolute references? Use the formula =AVERAGE($A$1:A1). Drag that down to get:
                      =AVERAGE($A$1:A1)
                      =AVERAGE($A$1:A2)
                      =AVERAGE($A$1:A3)
                      etc.

                            If I have a formula =A1<A2, which will evaluate to either TRUE or FALSE, what are you suggesting that the output should look like?

                              Are you saying that you want random divisions or are you saying that fixed width divisions don't seem to be fixed width?

                                No need. Convert your table to an actual table by selecting it and going Insert tab → Table. Table formulas always fill the entire column by default.

                                Other benefits of tables:
                                • Formulas are more readable and are consistent across each row.
                                • Banded rows.
                                • Filters applied to your table do not use up your 1 allowed filter per sheet.
                                • Column references are always the right size. You'll see Table[Column] rather than A:A or $A$2:$A$1405.
                                • You can make a PivotTable out of your table!

                                  A2 is a string. "" means "empty string", not "blank". You can't add a string and a number together using +. However, if you use SUM(1,A2), the string will be ignored.

                                  Also, for clarity, I like to use N() rather than --.

                                    Good observation. I agree that there should be a space between the number and the unit.

                                          VLOOKUP was a bad idea. It solved LOOKUP's problem of only working on sorted arrays, but it also has an unintuitive and restrictive syntax.

                                          Just use INDEX and MATCH together and give up on VLOOKUP.

                                            There's something like this already, but not quite like you're describing it. If you have a table (the "Insert tab → Table" kind of table and your selected cells are in the table and you scroll down so that the headings disappear, the column labels (A, B, C, ...) become the table headings.
