Office Mobile Spreadsheet Difficulties RRS feed

  • Question

  • Excel is troublesome. Office Mobile spreadsheets are very difficult to use. Code, maybe Trojan, worm, exploit, or combination of all with spam characteristics, make the cursor jump and adjust entries. When editing a cell formula to reflect value change like =B2*1,  placing the cursor behind 1 and entering backspace skips to = and deletes. If you are not paying attention the new value 2 is inserted in the wrong area producing an error. Also, the cursor becomes crypted (paused stationary, unmoved by entry) requiring many inputs. Additionally, the cursor jumps or reacts to a flash function where selecting the cell triggers the flash and changes referenced cell like B2 to B5.

    Round Up function is altered. Odd because the function is Java language not Microsoft. However, formulas are effected where .99 * .025 = 1.01 is displayed instead of 1.02.

    How are issues corrected?

  • Problem is intermittent. Device repairs itself.
