Hello,

 

I can't select the cell above the active cell. This may be dumb but it won't let me highlight it.

 

Attached is a simple to view picture.

 

Please help!!

 

Thanks so much

Neal,

I haver had this problem in the past. The way round it is to select a cell just to the right or above the one you want  and then use the keyboard arrow keys to get to the cell. 

I also am having this problem!  I have not been able to search the help and resources because I can not find the right combination of keywords which come close enough to figure it out.    It was working fine, and then either I accidently changed something or ???.  It is just the one spreadsheet so far that I was working on.   It makes it very difficult to visually see what cell your in on graphically show the group of cells selected vs the normal shading and borderlines around the cell or group of cells.   @nrafferty618
