Move cells in column up

Occasional Visitor

Until recently, when I deleted a cell, Excel gave me the option to "move cells up."   For some reason the programming changed and no longer offers that option.   I have document in which an error in the fifth column was made somethere near the top,  resulting in hundreds of cells being one place below where they need to be.  I hope someone can tell me how to delete one cell and make all cells below that spot move up.  Your help would be most appreciated.  I don't know enough to get back to here, so hope copy of response can be sent to    Thank you.  Thornton Clark

Hi @Thornton37 


how exactly do you delete the cell?

What happens when you right-click on that cell and select "Delete..."? There you should get your options (Shift cells left, shift cells up, Entire row, Entire column)
