Run a Macro on an Excel 2007 workbook, now formulas no longer work in the modified workbook? I can type a simple (like "=5") in a blank cell and hit enter and what I typed is shown, not the result of the formula. Same for complex formulas ("=vlookup(..."). How do I fix?

  • I don't think it's related to the macros. What is the number format of the cells? Can you post some screenshots? – Máté Juhász Jul 13 '16 at 19:39

It's possible you accidentally turned on the "Show Formulas" option. You can disable it by going to the Formulas tab→Formula Auditing→Show Formulas. Alternately, the hotkey is Ctrl+~ (that's the tilde key at the top left of your keyboard).
