After an upgrade from Excel 2003 to 2007, suddenly auto-calculate does not work any longer. If the user hits F2 it will correctly update all fields. Also, the calculation mode is correctly set to Automatic. Could this be a macro issue? Really not sure what's going on.

Check the "Excel Options" button from the windows office circle thingy. That will bring up a new dialog box. Down the left side will be a "Formulas" item. Select it and then you will be graced by the caluclations stuff. Make sure "Automatic" is selected.

Share and enjoy.

As noted in the question, calculation is set correctly to Automatic. :) – jasonjwwilliams Feb 9 '10 at 20:05

Re-installing Excel 2007 after uninstalling it completely fixed the issue. Must have been a clash of libraries left over from Excel 2003.
