Editing the Contents of a Cell

To edit the contents of a cell without deleting the current contents, follow these steps:

  1. Double-click in the cell that contains the data you want to edit. This will enter the editing mode and will position the cursor within the cell. Alternatively, you can follow the spreadsheet keyboard convention and press F2, which will also enter the edit mode for the currently highlighted cell.

  2. Make the desired changes to the cell contents.

  3. Press ENTER.

To overwrite the contents of a cell, click on the cell and begin typing. See also, Range of Numeric Values that Can Be Entered or Stored in Cells.
