Spin Control only increments

Occasional Visitor

I have a sheet that I use for tracking statistics. Each cell contains a simple number with 0 decimal places.


I have added a spin controls in my sheet to simply increment and decrement the value of a field by 1.


As I have added and tested the spin controls, I have found that many of them will only increment the field, not decrement the value. Both the up and down buttons are visible, but when clicking the down arrow in the control, the field is incremented improperly.


Thanks for the help

I've seen another report of this behavior - perhaps it's a bug in a recent update.

Spin button and scroll bar form controls 

You can report it from within Excel: File > Feedback > Send a Frown.
