    How quickly this thread digresses when you folks try to play the "I'm more old school than you" game

    Quick update:

    Yes I've tried all the tips/tricks, the only one that has made a difference is when you archive previous formulas by pasting them as text.

    I've upgraded from Excel 2010 32Bit to Excel 2013 64Bit, I'm not big fan of upgrades, we'll see how well it works out.

    We didn't even get in to DBaseII or the stuff we used to run on Z-Dos on the Z-100s or the 8 inch floppies or...

    You paste previous formulas in a cell formatted as text? Do they still work? Does that keep excel from "fixing" them?

    I'm in agreement on upgrades. Not that I don't think newer versions aren't needed, just that "backward compatibility" often is not. Every time the good folks at IT push an upgrade to office, we spend hours trying to get even relatively simple spreadsheets to behave. The Access stuff, I won't even go there.

    Good luck and keep us posted.

    Since the formulas are covering past data, pasting as text works perfectly so long as the most recent row has the original formulas. So far the upgrade is decent, there are more than a few extra features not found in Excel 2010. This revision is more like Google Docs, the gui feels web based, the program seeks to work in the cloud. As for speed it's not any faster than 2010, and for size the folder is 2.7 GB. One think I'm displeased with is I can't find MS Picture Manager.

    The MS goobers dropped Picture Manager from the 2013 suite

    Yes I agree, this is a huge oversight on the part of MS. While I didn't use picture manager every day, I did use it and found it a quick & easy way to edit photos.

    If you upgraded, is it possible the EXE is still on your computer (OIS.EXE)?

    No dice, they stripped it out, I was even force to uninstall my Excel 2010 because it couldn't upgrade from 32bit to Excel's 2013 64bit.

    paint.net is a great free one to get if you don't already have it.
