Recalculating the worksheet
Turning off the automatic calculation feature also means that you must remember to manually recalculate the values in the worksheet before you print. To change the recalculation setting, take the following steps:
1. Open the Tools menu and choose Options.
2. Click the Calculation tab:
3. Select one of the following Calculation options:
- Automatic - This is the default setting. It recalculates the entire workbook each time you edit or enter a formula.
- Automatic except tables - This automatically recalculates everything except formulas in a data table (data tables are used to provide a range of data for one formula and function and are used for an advanced Excel feature called "What If Analysis").
- Manual - This option tells Excel to recalculate only when you say so. To recalculate manually, press the F9 key. When this option is selected, you can turn the Recalculate before save option off or on.
4. Click OK.
