LKBEN10762: Excel Spreadsheet: row- and column headers


Excel Spreadsheet without row- and column headers ("A1", "B123",...) not displayed




If an Excel spreadsheet does not display row or column headers, it´s hard to select a whole row or column. Also it´s not easy to display hidden rows or columns...

To get back your row and column headings, go to extras --> options and look for window options on the general tab. Theres a checkbox for these headings (Excel 2003 and below)

For Excel 2007 you find this setting under:

Under Table Tools select Layout Tab and look for the Table group. There ought to be a checkmark for rows & columns, and make sure "view" is checked
