      My work computer I rarely use the touch screen. Typically to find the curser.

      The home computer I always use the touch screen. Don’t even have a mouse connected & rarely use the touchpad.

      I think the difference is where I use the two computers. Work is at my work desk with a second monitor (non-touch) and a wireless keyboard.

      My home computer is much closer, on table right in front of me or in my lap.

    • in reply to: Patch Lady – what is Excel spill? #2295641

      As a user of Office 365, I started getting the #SPILL error message on spreadsheets I had been using for years. I also saw the ‘Single’ and @ functions in old formulas where I was using the format A:A * B:B, or something similar. (This formerly gave the product of the cell in the row in column A and cell in the row in column B. A1*B1, A2*B2, …)

      Noel, you are right in suspecting the Dynamic Array update. Excel has been updated to be pickier on formulas that are array formulas and not array formulas.  The old formula format A:A*B:B is an implicit array formula, which is no longer allowed. Using that format produces a #SPILL error. I presume there are other formerly allowed implicit array formulas that now give the same error.

      In old spreadsheets, the formula format usually gets automatically replaced by @A:A * @B:B. Sometimes the ‘@” is the ‘Single’ function in old formulas. But when ‘Single’ is manually entered, it is changed to the ‘@’.

      This drove me nuts for a week, while I researched the issue.

      Hope this sends you in the right direction.
