Excell Problem - Need Help

by Esw88 / September 4, 2008 8:59 AM PDT

I have a rather big spreadsheet (many columns)
I was adding some additional information and I cannot add any more columns. It stops at IV. That is not a 4, it is the letters IV.
Am I doing something wrong?

That will be Excel's column limit
by MarkFlax Forum moderator / September 4, 2008 9:45 AM PDT

I believe Excel 2007 has moved beyond this limit, but if you are using an earlier version, then column IV is the limit, at 256 columns.

There may be workarounds, but they may not be pretty. For example, can you create more worksheets and use those?

Thanks, I didn't realize that.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
