Excel is not updating formulas

There are 5 reasons for your Excel formula not calculating are many. The first thing that you should check is that the calculation options are not set to manual. Click the Formulas tab and then the Calculation Options button.If this is set to manual, the formulas will not update unless you press the Calculate Now or Calculate Sheet buttons.I set a formula to an entire column but it does not take affect unless I double click in each of the boxes? It does not do it unless i double click in each specific one.This is difficult to notice so can go unrecognised, however it will prevent the formula from calculating. When an apostrophe (‘) is entered before typing in Excel, that tells Excel to store the content as text.

Not immediately logical to me, but I think I understand it now.

(I only discovered this after an hour of tinkering, figuring I had botched the formula!

) Are there any ways around this so that it updates upon dragging the formula?

Based on this information, formulas in other cells calculate costs and time.

Anyone experience this before and is there a quick fix?
