Issue: Excel formula not updating after inserting rows

If you're experiencing issues with Excel formulas not updating after inserting rows, there are a few possible solutions you can try:

  1. Check the formula references: Make sure that the formulas in your worksheet are referencing the correct cells. When you insert rows, the cell references in your formulas may need to be adjusted to account for the new row positions.

  2. Enable automatic calculation: Excel has a feature called "Automatic Calculation" that recalculates formulas whenever changes are made to the worksheet. To ensure that formulas update automatically, go to the "Formulas" tab in the Excel ribbon, click on "Calculation Options," and select "Automatic."

  3. Check for circular references: Circular references occur when a formula refers to its own cell or indirectly refers to itself through a chain of references. Circular references can prevent formulas from updating correctly. To check for circular references, go to the "Formulas" tab, click on "Error Checking," and select "Circular References."

  4. Use volatile functions: If your formulas rely on volatile functions like NOW(), TODAY(), or RAND(), they should update automatically whenever changes are made to the worksheet.

  5. Manually recalculate formulas: If automatic calculation is disabled or not working correctly, you can manually recalculate formulas by pressing the "F9" key on your keyboard or by going to the "Formulas" tab and clicking on "Calculate Now."

Please try these steps and let me know if the issue persists.
