Hello I have been learning Excel and I somehow changed my auto sum to something that reads 

=SUM(W8:W20)

How do I get it back to the actual total from that row (and column, since the whole page changed)

Thank you so much in advance for any help.

@GlendaLizotte Perhaps you accidentally switched on "Show Formulas" on the Formulas ribbon.

Press the icon and see if it reverts back to displaying the result, rather than the formula itself.

@Riny_van_Eekelen Thank you so much. that was it.
