The value returned by Excel’s formula doesn’t update automatically – the cell with the formula continues to show the old value even after changing the values of the dependent cells.

Applying this change will simply get Excel to stop updating existing formulas when you make a change to a cell value that is included as part of the formula’s calculation.

If, after applying the manual calculation setting, you create a new formula, that formula will still be executed.

The problem is most likely caused by accidentally changing the calculation setting from Automatic to Manual.

To fix this we just have to set the Calculation option back to Automatic.

However, sometimes we may enter a formula that has been formatted as Text, to check this just select the cell with the formula and look at the Number Format box on the Home Tab.
