cell starts with big numbers

cell starts with big numbers

cell starts with big numbers

I open a excel file which cell starts with big row numbers (1013, 1014, etc.). I checked it and did make sure there is no hide cells (using unhide) or any protection on the worksheet. Could anyone tell me how to change to the normal sheet starts from A1, A2,....?

              A     B    C    D  .....

Suppose should be:
           A      B     C     D .....


RE: cell starts with big numbers

Try unfreezing the pane..... Window -> Unfreeze Pane

RE: cell starts with big numbers

To be safe, first copy the entire sheet to another sheet say sheet 2. Then on sheet 2 Delete rows 1 to 1012. If sheet 2 comes out to what you want, you can delete sheet 1.

RE: cell starts with big numbers

Did you really select the entire sheet (Ctrl-A) before trying to unhide?


Please see FAQ731-376 for tips on how to make the best use of Eng-Tips.

RE: cell starts with big numbers

You may not have hidden rows.  Sometimes people hide rows using this method.  You may have rows with zero height, so also try setting row height to a size which you can read (std = 8.43).

Joerd's suggestion will also apply to this method.
