Highlighted Cells deleting when un-highlighting.

Copper Contributor

I am highlighting a table, and when i try to un-highlight the table it automatically deletes the information in the cells. 


I am thinking i accidentally used a combination on my keyboard causing it my excel to make the deletions.

I put your problem to the Bing chat-bot.

Here is its answer:


I'm sorry to hear that you're having trouble with your Excel table. I couldn't find any information about a specific keyboard shortcut that would cause the issue you're describing. However, there are some general troubleshooting steps you can try if you're experiencing issues with Excel:

1. Update Office to the latest version.
2. Set Excel into Safe Mode by closing Excel, pressing `win + R`, typing `excel /safe` in the Run box, and clicking `OK`.
3. Repair Office and choose Online Repair ¹.

If these steps don't help, it might be helpful to provide more information about the issue you're experiencing, such as the version of Excel you're using and whether the issue occurs in a specific workbook or all workbooks.

Is there anything else I can help with? :smiling_face_with_smiling_eyes:
